Well this is what I have so far. Still needs highlights and shading, also needs a stem and leaves. Also I'm going to refinish the black canvas because it got funny looking with the scraping off the paint and wiping with the mineral spirits.

This started off as a knife painting but I didn't have much control with the knife so I switched to a brush.

Any helpful criticism is welcome.

Wow! It turned out good :) I'm no good critic like the others here but the stem/leaves looks like they're shiny like glass...It's like a rose from a magical forest...the rarest type of rose that can cure any sickness-..oops..there I go again..anyways..I love it...reminds me of Van Gogh style @[email protected] (I guess)..

Thank you all for your kind comments but I'm not happy with the picture so I decided to try again. So here is the start of the Rose picture over again. The orange you see in the picture is just the underpainting of the Rose and buds. This time the Rose and the buds are going to be straight Yellow with no red in it. I think I went a little nuts with the white highlights on the last one.

Yes I'm planning to keep it but I'm hoping the next one comes out better to give to my sister.

I love the first one, it's like a magic rose, like Melody said :D When I saw it I was like "oh it's so pretty O_O", I like the start of the new one you're making, and I like that it's a yellow rose cause it means friendship and joy :D
I love your stuff Terry, thank you for sharing it with us ^_^

Here is the Rose version 2.0. I think I like it better than the first one but it still is not where I want it to be. I'm thinking about trying one of Gary Jenkins tutorials. They look hard but I think if I try it I can learn a lot from it.

Thank you Cricket. I'm still in Novice class with my painting, but I enjoy it so much and want to keep trying until I get better.

Hey Terry, I haven't been here in a while, glad to see you're still at the paints! Nice touch with the bold backgrounds, gives the paintings a sort of unique flair.

Thank you Liz and Susan. Today, or maybe tomorrow, I'm going to start on Rose version 3.0. I'm going to keep it up until I get a "WOW" from my husband. He's not easy to get a WOW from.

"Novice class" >.< You left that class a long time ago >.<
I love it :D

You are right, it's better than the previous one, but I still like the V1.0 too xD

I'm trying a different approach this time. This is from a tutorial by Gary Jenkins. I love his style. I know I didn't do him justice but for a first try at his style I don't think it's too bad. I'm going to try doing it over tomorrow. It doesn't take very long to do. He uses wet-on-wet technique so I don't have to wait for drying in-between layers.

I know you're never supposed to touch a painting, but something about this one makes me want to reach out and touch it....

Simply beautiful. :vs-kiss:

That's interesting Cricket. You will have to wait until it dries to touch it. And Thank you.

Wow David, Muchas Gracias.

:surprise:The reaction I'm getting is surprising me because I thought it came out a bit of a mess and am anxious to try it again and hopefully do better.
