Believe it or not, these roses will end up nearly white. But here, you can see that bold warm pinks are put down first, so that the warmth comes up through the final whites. The architecture of these blooms lured me in to paint them. In this first phase, I am only interested in laying a foundation from darks to lights, and testing a color scheme.
