Thank you all for your lovely comments  :-*  On to the Anthitiums next.

I have really enjoyed this course, it's taken me out of my comfort zone and forced me to do things in a more methodical and precise way, and taught me a whole series of new skills which I can use. Not only on watercolour but on other media too. Thank you Dennis - more of the same please  :flowers:

Cheers

This is my submission with the rose painting.  Thank you Dennis for an interesting class.  I struggled somewhat with the leaves.  Comments and critiques are welcomed and warmly received.    Thank you.   Patricia








This is the revised rose with the changes I have made.

Lovely rose, Patricia.    Advanced flowers are challenging, aren't they!

One eye grabber is the red rimmed petal at the top, just to the left of center.  Might want to see if you can tone it down a bit.

Otherwise, get that frame ready.

 :thankyou:  So much Mea for your comments and critique.  I had so much trouble with that leaf, I almost rubbed a hole through the paper but I will try and tone it down a bit.  I really appreciate your help for sometimes one can't see their own mistakes and it is wonderful to have someone point them out. So a BIG thank you Mea.
