Roses from Roosevelt Park



More work on the 2 panel yellow rose composition.

Some of the areas are becoming unworkable. Part of the freewheeling approach to this sketch was layering pastels and watercolor pencils on unprepared drawing paper. In general, I think it worked, but a few areas won’t accept additional pigment (for example, the dark flower areas in the center).

So it’s time to stop, and move on to the next step. I pulled off the masking tape. How to frame this?
