Painted Roses 1 - pink and purple

After spending the last couple hours on this artwork, it is time for a break. Yet again I'm trying new methods and techniques. A new friend on Twitter asked me if I ever painted over my flowers, and  I honestly answered that no, I don't since I don't (still don't) have a drawing tablet and painting with a mouse is not easy.

Today, I decided to try painting over flowers and while I much prefer the natural colors and textures present in the original photo, I understand some people don't consider art to be art if they can't see brush strokes and other imperfections, so that should make them happy.

In case you haven't noticed, I have comments enabled in Google Friend Connect. You can use your FREE Google, Yahoo, AIM, or OpenID account to log in and use your twitter photo.  It is easy to join and comment on any of my artwork posts and you can even rate them! I'm not offended by constructive comments either.  :-)
