    This is where I am at with my rose.

    I have still some work to do on this Rose with shading, but think i have managed to get the water droplets right. I did an initial trace of the photo to make it easier for myself for placing things, i have to do that because i cant see the whole image, it has to be zoomed in 800%.
    Any comments would be apreciated.Click image for larger version.

    Thank you jmac,

    Robyn, they were fun once I got the hang of how to create the wet look, its making sure the lighting is in the correct place the bubbles are on a seperate layer so I can go back and make miner corrections.

    It's absolutely stunning.
    Artwork is fun, isn't it? You can create anything from only a picture in your head.
    There sure are a lot of water droplets.
    Wonderful job! Maybe add a little more detail to the background? You could make it so there are vague shapes of leaves behind the rose.
    Maybe even add some leaves to the rose... Sorry, I'm just brainstorming.
    Roses with dew drops are a good way to practice water, plants, textures, shading, and much more.
    I love it!

    Thank you Fiawin for your input.
    I did think about putting blurred leaves in the background but decided i didnt want anything taken from the main subject the Rose and the water droplets so kept that area simple. When I originaly took the photo I positioned myself and the tripod in a position that made the Rose floating with macro.
    I have posted the final painting in the Gallery http://forums.artrage.com/showthread...highlight=Rose

    It is wonderful. I'd like to see more dimensionality with the petal on the 10-11 o'clock position. I can't tell how it is contoured. A stem with a couple of leaves would anchor the rose IMHO.
