Ok, so I am beginning to understand the process of painting roses...I still don't like it, but that which doesn't kill you makes you stronger or so I've heard. I am going back to the drawing board with this one. This time I will take better care with my drawing and have a little more patience while painting.
Another thing that occured to me is that I need to be using all transparent paint.
Time to go shopping - but for now, I'm gonna go put my toes in the water....
See ya at the lake!
