Red Rose Continued

Yesterday I got a bunch more done on the red rose I had started as a demo. I fully expected to be able to finish it last night but then we took the kids on this monster bike ride and couldn't seem to move the rest of the night. And today it didn't happen either sadly. So my painting accomplishment of the night is just this quick blog post. At least it's something to motivate me to get back to work tomorrow and finish up this little beauty, reminding myself to not lose the light areas to all that deep, rich color I like so much. Especially because I need the lights and whites to make the deeps deeper and the richness richer. After a good night sleep - look at how good I'm being going to bed before 11 - I'll finish her up tomorrow!
