It's fun playing with the backgrounds...this one used a nice gradation from black, to a touch of black mixed with some of the Quins used for the Rose itself. Tying the entire piece together.

That's lovely! Did you first masque the rose to get that gradation? You have such wonderful smooth lines, mine are usually ragged or rough.

Beautiful work, as always, Jacqueline!

Hi Dianne. Yes, mask first! Thank you for the kind words.

I need to visit your blog Christiane to see what you've been doing!
