Wild Roses

Today I noticed a lovely photo on a site that I watch.  I messaged the photographer, Colleen Fink, asking for her permission to use her photo as a reference.  She graciously told me that I could.
My painting does not do her photo justice; but I really enjoyed doing it.  I love the wild roses, they are tough and resilient and smell wonderful and even give you colour in the winter with their red rose hips.
I looked at it for a few days and decided that I didn't like it, so I reworked it a bit.
