The eye of the sweetest hurricane ever. . . Hurricane Rose. Very active in a spiral way and tightening the focus in the "eye".

Well done!

dear Pat... this is gorgeous!! great colors.... I want to say that some of your finest work is done with single subjects.. like the parrots, the butterfly, and this rose...you seem to let go and use more vibrant colors and get fantastic results...;);)

Pat, this is quite nice. Some thoughts for what might improve it- 1) introduce deeper shadows in the folds, and 2) use the background to help you, rather than keeping it black, which is very neutral. Also, why are the edges of the petals white? Is it a side effect of the process you're using, or on purpose? I feel like these rather minor things are holding the painting back, as the color work and movement of line is quite good. :)

Thankyou all for checking it out, really appreciate it as always:)
Steve, I can see what you mean about the white edges, so glad you
pointed it out, I made a black bg so as not to take away from the colors in the rose, which I still like as it makes it stand out more, thanks for checking it out and comments are always appreciated:)
