I decided to try my luck at painting the same rosé I did as a drawing a couple of weeks ago. I struggled to apply pink that did not appear washed out. I think next time I'll mix in a little yellow and less white into the reds. I like the balance of the overall composition. Last weekend I saw some Dutch floral paintings at the DeYoung museum that were truly amazing. Painting this rose made me really appreciate the amount of work involved.
