I don't know about you but I find roses either go really well or really bad. A bit like painting hands too.
Yesterday I painted one hand on my current portrait so fast and good, a hard pose too, while the other looked like a meat stew dumpling.
Same with this rose. Took me FOREVER last night, and I must confess I had to touch it up this morning. Roses have complex forms. One has to keep it simple.
So what is your bugaboo??? What do you find hard?
