Working on Roses

Roses and Vast #2/  oil on board/ 6 x 6/ $125
 I have been trying to learn to paint roses. Many roses have given their lives for this effort. I started to copy other painters. Finally, after many failed attempts, I painted the the small rose portrait (second painting down). I still want more painterly strokes but at least this is improving. Next, I lit three of the most recent grocery discount buys  and a fabulous chocolate pot. I painted the watercolor image (bottom of these) and finally a small oil. This one I love. Especially the orange and blue contrasts.
