Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I followed the teacher's advice pretty much to what he said. I did switch to a 'painterly' mode in the background though. I wish I would have done the shadowed 'stems' better. The one I have is way too thin. Please note that my photo doesn't show the colors very well. The background is a rich jade color, not blue.

Is the piece for sale? No

What are you most proud of? I like the top background flower the best and the fact that I resurrected the rose from oblivion. Oh, and also that I finished the painting!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made an error in the outlining. I used a watercolor pencil and when the water hit it, got a little freaked out by the dark lines so I 'erased' the lines. That made it quite hard to get the original shape of the rose again. Next time I will know better. :-)

Nice result, even with the watercolor pencil problem.

I see people's questions and when I click at the bottom to learn how people reply, it just says add your answer and I can't see answers to the person's question. How can I see the replies?

Thank you for all the replies. I really need to get back at it and improve. Reading these have encouraged me to try again.

Hi, I decided to follow you : ) I took this class as well. your rose is beautiful, so soft! very nice blending of colors. In my painting like this, you can't even see the vase, I kind of forgot about it. I see you have a lot of classes on Craftsy, me too, I'm up to 11? I think
