A red rose from my garden that I hope you all will enjoy.  The 30 paintings in 30 days really is a stretch, but I think I'll make it.  This is DAY 18 and I tried to do a painting that was a little easier than yesterday's effort.  Of course this took longer than I had planned, but not as long as yesterday's.

Working with reds can be tricky and I found everything was getting a little dull so I wiped off the more critical areas and went in with some brighter red which I think did the trick?  Having been a watercolorist for so many years, I feel like I'm "cheating" when I do this but then this is one of the advantages of oil--it's flexibility!

Happy Painting to those of you who are also doing Leslie's Challenge!  And thanks to all who took the time to view my blog...
