I started by wetting the paper after very lightly sketching in the basic shapes, then dropped in azo yellow, cad. yellow and quin. coral, then added some greens for background while the paper was drying, which left some good lost edges. Now I gradually built up the rose shapes with glazes....
See the ugly man in the rose on the left? Now I had to get rid of him! I also worked on the background.
The ugly man is starting to vanish! I gradually shaped the roses by adding shadows.
Sick of yellow, I did a little green leaf and the rose bud on the right
And this is where it stands now, the roses are taking shape nicely!
