Rose Succulent

I finished this painting this morning. Once it was finished, THEN I noticed a few hard edges in the shadows that I don't like but they were done in acrylic ink so there you go...soften the edges in the underpainting before adding the color glazes Susan!

I do like the moonlit glow of the darker colors of this, though. I wonder if I will ever learn enough about this stuff to completely like a painting I have done and not see the oops areas? I guess most artists are still on a learning/evolving path no matter how good they are, that's my story and I'm stickin' with it.

Susan, this is beautiful and moonlit, too. I think as long as you continue to see those oops moments in your own paintings, you are still growing - and that's a good thing (much better than being stagnant). I really like how this turned out.

Very good. Yes, those greens are definitely moonlit.
