The First Cut is the Deepest (Or Is It The Sweetest?)

This was the first rose I cut from my rose bushes this year which led to the first cut on my hands from the rose thorns (likely not the last). And it was the first sketch I did of the first rose.  My intention was get the essence of the delicate rose with as few lines and as few washes as possible. I drew it with a gold gel pen, painted directly in one layer and stopped.

Happy!

Jana,
Absolutely beautiful. Love the gold gel pen and one layer of color; you conveyed the delicate feel.
