I had the idea of doing it in black and white, to see if it might hide the blemishes on the petals a little bit. As I worked on it, I liked it more and more, and somehow in black and white the blemishes seemed to "add" something to the image instead of taking away from it. :)
I really love how the center part of the rose looks almost like a pencil sketch. I hope you like it too! :)
