Looking gorgeous @TerryCurley !! Quit making me want to buy your paintings!! No, I know this is a personal one.

I think roses may be your specialty

I'm going to let this dry now before I do anything more to it. What I plan on still doing is the leaves of course and I'm going to put one more layer on the roses and then do the highlighting.

Paintings like this are going to fly off the shelf. Terry the "Flower Lady".

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

Well today I put in the leaves and put a wash over the roses which I'm afraid toned down a lot of the contrast I had put in . Tomorrow I'll see about putting some of the contrast back in it and do the highlighting on the leaves and the flowers.

Here is the before I put the wash on so you can see what I mean.
Spoiler!


The lighting isn't so great in this photo.

Like Mc'Donalds, I'm loving it >.<

Hmmm the 2nd pic it's not as bright as the 1st, that's because you took the photo in different places/moments or that's what you where talking about with the 'wash problem'?

No doubt you will have those highlights back. I am touched every time I see this project.

FanKi the earlier picture was taken out doors on a bright day, the current photo was taken in my room after dark, so that is why the second photo looks so much darker. The wash I put on the roses undid a lot of the contrast I had developed between the light side of the rose and the dark side. I like the deep color it produced but I need that contrast back.

@WFMartin can you tell me how to avoid having the wash from taking away the contrast? Was my wash too thick you think? Should I have mixed in some white in my wash for the lighter side? Your flowers are so perfect I'm thinking you know the answer. Any other oil painters want to chime in please do. I really want to find the answer to this because I've had this happen before and I'm starting this composition on a larger canvas (30x40 in) and want to get it right.
