Rose Wild Rose

"Rose Wild Rose"
7" x 7"
Pastel on paper
I found a bush of wild roses during the season and shot some photos of the blooms. I did't know these simple flowers would be perfect for me to try my first pastel of a rose... not too many petals. I have one warm pink pastel, a red and an orange so there was a lot of mixing of color to get what I was seeing in my photo. Good practice, I suppose.  

I met with the Princeton Brush representatives today. They're going to send some additional brushes to me so I don't have to use just one. They would like me to be fluent in Catalyst before they film me in a few weeks.  It was a productive and fun meeting.
