Rose by Ann Edwards - she will add a strong shadow in the next stage
Cathie van der Stel's angel - even more beautiful now that it is finished
Cathie also started another version of the thornless rose... Not finished but already stunning!!
Would this be the one for the contest? Or still a study...
Edith Alborni's rose without thorns - she worked wet-in-wet combined with a little bit of masking fluid
And in the same line of thought, maybe slightly less serious, I started painting a very corny single-cover, of a sixties single by 'Gert & Hermien' with the title "No roses without thorns"
