My cousin gave me this rose bush to plant in the back garden. It's a Morden Sunrise and the flowers are a beautiful creamy yellow shading to pink at the edges, and it has a heavenly citrusy scent. It's lovely and flowers are one of my favourite things to draw. I find roses intimidating at the best of times, but this one seemed simple - no complicated folding and crimping, just a few petals. It's the shadows that I find difficult to render realistically to give the petals their shape and delicacy. This simple flower was actually quite difficult. I'm not sure that I achieved what I wanted to but I think continuing to work on it would ruin it. For now I'm calling it done and a good practice piece. Good new is that there are more buds forming so I can continue to practice.
