Dennis has me totally addicted to painting Still life's now!! This is based on a photo from pixabay. Had to simplify the rose a bit - the original got a little too complicated for me! Any suggestions?
Cheers,
Sharon

Thank you so much Patricia, Mea, Dennis and Mary Lou. And here it is with a touch of shading on the sides of the vase. Definitely gives it more volume!
Cheers,
Sharon
