Roses are red

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.
