A pink rose for your Monday morning. We off on running on Week 2 of the Challenge. I like all the curves and ruffles in this rose. Trying to get depth in a pastel flower is a challenge, but the answer to that dilemma is practice, practice.
Last week I attended a 2 day workshop with Barbara Janeicke, a very accomplished pastel artist. However, the workshop was a "composition boot camp". We worked strictly on simplifying the landscape and getting values correctly. It was very good and something I need to work on. With nothing major on my calendar (yet), it should be a little easier to work in the paintings this week.
Thank you all for cheering me on! I love it!
