One Rose Among Many - daily painting oil on canvas floral

6 x 6"
oil on canvas

It occurred to me yesterday that it's been quite a while since I painted any flowers, so here you go! My big problem with this one was getting too dark too quickly on the rose itself. It seems so rich and saturated at first, but if you waste all those dark darks at the beginning, it becomes quite hard to convey the form! Oh well, lesson learned - for now.

It doesn't appear too dark. So, when will the lighter one be painted?
