I love how the aquaboard handled the red. So vibrant! This one also took longer than one session. I got wrapped up in the background circles. I also wanted to make sure the greens were right. Greens can be tough. The trick is to always, always, always mix your own greens. No tube colors. Using a variety of hues adds depth and interest.
This reference photo was taken on August 8 in the rose garden. They are all blooming beautifully. You'll be seeing more roses.
