Eagle-eye Danielle :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: Was wondering when someone would spot the difference :clap:
The rose photograph was taken under overcast situation such that the shadows were very subtle and not harsh. The main light was from above and slightly to the right while the strong sunlight on the leaves was from the left. I could not find the rose I wanted and with the light from the left and did not want to confuse you in changing the shadows in the rose during the lesson. Was hoping the strong contrast on the leaves would disguise the soft shadows in the rose.
Kudos for catching me out :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: O0 The others had not noticed it.

 :eek: I have been trying very hard not to look at any more lessons until I finish up what I have on the go. Then this little dangler appears!  :doh: Of  course I'll now have to go and have a look!  :nosey: Oh well, what's another bit of wood on the fire?   :whistle:
Thanks much Danielle!  :2funny:
 :flowers: :1hug:
Cheers, Val

 :thankyou: Dennis i was afraid to ask but it paid off.  I thought one of these days you would quize us secretly.   I will try to make my rose with the light on the left side.  Hope I will do it right.   

 :thankyou: Lynn, Dennis has been saying it over and over again when combining pictures.

 :thankyou: Val.

Thanks Danielle! Now I know why I could not progress with the leaves! It just did not "click" to me until I read your post! I have my painting sitting for 2 days and could not continue and I stopped painting until I could figure out. Now I know why. Great test Dennis :smart: ;)

Good eye Danielle! So here's my question since I'm about ready to start the leaves - do I paint them as Dennis does in the video, or do I paint them from the photo?
Cheers,
Sharon

I'll paint the rest of it with the light coming from above/right as I finished painting my rose with that light!

As long as you don't overdo the rose shadows I guarantee that the average person will not notice it at all - remember you are now starting to get a trained eye as an artist.
There could just as well have been a white wall nearby on the right side that reflected light onto the rose.

here is my final painting. I have tried to have the light from upper right on the rose and leaves. Somehow the picture came out with more yellow green on the leaves that is in reality. Maybe the light have altered the color. Please, does anyone have any comments for improvements before I frame it? I am sure will go on display here in the community art center. Thank you

Wow, Doina.  That'll be a hit in the community art show.  Lovely rose; great leaves.

Doina you did an excellent rose.  The leaves and the light on the petals are great.   Congrat
