Oh My!  My favorite flower too!  NICE job, Big Sis! xo  (Roses are one of the most difficult flowers to paint, this talking from experience, and you totally nailed these beauties!!)  (in fact, I cannot paint roses without a detailed drawing first, and here, it looks like you formed a masterpiece without a preliminary drawing!!)

Happy New Year, Lyn!

  In your "Roses" mixed media , did you use watercolour or acrylic on top of the gesso.  Did you use Absorbent Ground, if you used watercolour?
