Nice one as always, love your attention to detail.

Thank you Peter you are very kind - it is also the thing which makes your own paintings stand out for me!

Beautifully observed Christine, a lovely bud. You are right the petals are so numerous! I get lost trying to fit them all in.

Your bud is an excellent start Christine and practise for he BIG one! If it turns out as beautiful as this, it will be a stunner!

Quite exquisite. Love the colour of your leaves as well.

Superb - nothing further left to say

Lovely work Christine, love the colour of the bud - very bold!

Thank you all, it means such a lot to receive your comments and Fiona, perhaps I will try an entire flower!

Wow I have just seen this , it is beautiful, very well painted. You have an amazing eye for detail.

I have wanted to paint a rose for a while, they are so beautiful. When I went to pick one though I chickened out and chose a bud. There are just so many petals in the full flower I think it must be difficult not to get lost.
