The greens and some of the petal colors need strengthening but this is how it looks like at this point:

pink roses


            I did not stretch this paper before painting and this is why the over all appearance looks a little different – satiny. The water floats on top of the paper without being absorbed for a longer time and I took advantage of this by doing the petals in a single wet in wet wash (or two for the larger ones). The greens are Schminke’s sap green, raw sienna, pthalo blue and ruby red.
