Happy rainy Thursday everyone. After going through a painters block all week. I should have done my morning pages but I didn't Anyway my first attempt of white roses.

Thank you Nancy Medina for recommending Robert A. Johnson's dvd on floral painting. I am looking forward to its arrival.

In the meantime, I started studying once again.

  9. Hi Mario,
    Thank you. Sorry, I meant to say, my first attempt at using the Gary Jenkins approach to painting roses. It was a fun approach. Thanks again Mario.
