Rose Sketch


A rough pencil sketch of a single rose. We are studying composition and design in the Acrylics Forum at Wet Canvas. I'm trying to understand placement of large shapes, line and form, balancing lights and darks. I have a 12" x 48" canvas mounted hardboard ready for painting. So I'm questioning whether this works. More sketches to do before deciding on a final one.
