Acrylic on 10x8" canvas panel.

I wonder if anybody else fell for the smooth lines of RR when he said "We’re going to start out nice and simple with a single yellow rose." This is the first flower that I have painted and found it to be full of sneaky little challenges, but I battered on through and think that I’ve learned a lot by doing it.

Michael, thanking you lots for your invaluable hints and tips.  They will be a great help to me.  The more I paint, the more I realise that there is to learn.

Nice clean color, good modeling, and good edge work!   Stephen, a good way to paint shadow forms on the white cloth is to block the shadows in with your background colors ..then you can add warm and cool reflected light into that at a later stage.  I will also paint some warm tone where the "white" will be.  I then scumble the "white" over the warm tone ..letting some of it peek through.  BTW, the white is not really ..white.  Mix tints of your color family that you have used through the painting ..make that the "white" of your cloth.  This technique will unify your painting as the cloth and everything else will then relate.   Great job!! :))
