First try at roses.......

feather107April 14, 2002

This was my first try at roses.

Its oil pastel, soft pastels, and a little acrylic paint.

It looks like crayon.... the scan is really bad & i couldn't fit the whole picture in the scan.

Just can't seem to draw earthly things! I better go into a depression and turn back to the skies again.....such is life.

Happy arting-

Feather

It certainly should not be the last try at roses. They are beautiful, and the colors are great.

I don't think they look like crayon...more like VELVET. I loved it, would make a beautiful tapestry too. Copper

I think it is beautiful. I really like the way the petals seem to dance.

Get to work, practice makes perfect.

Thanks for the photo, I enjoyed it! Your audience calls for MORE....MORE!
