Just finished this rose picture. Please critique. I have always had trouble doing roses and this one was no exception. I plan to keep practicing until it gets easier for me.

Size? Canvas or panel?

I think you did a lovely job with the rose and the leaves. What I find distracting is the yellow background against the yellow rose. I personally would have selected a contrasting color. Right now the yellow of the rose blends in with the yellow of the background. The flower is not currently the focal point. I find my eye moving automatically to the buds and the darker color at the right of the image.

Chanda's right, the rose doesn't stand out enough in the painting but I love the vibrant leaves, you did a nice job on them.

This feels like sunshine. With the cold dreary days lately, this is perfect to me.

Thank you Chanda and Liz. The yellow rose was originally a white rose, but I found that I didn't care for the white rose so I changed it. Had I planned from the beginning to make a yellow rose I would have not used so much yellow in the background.

I think you did a fantastic job on the rose itself Terry. You should be proud. Every piece of art is a learning experience that's for sure.

A bit off the thread but not really - T, got all 9 of your msgs! The PM feature is screwed. I assume you put a bug in someone's ear?

I posted a note to the Artist Forum help desk. Only moderators and admins can see that category. The admins have been pretty good about fixing things.
