This was originally a light pink colored rose. I loved the way it was shaped so perfectly, and all the petals were opened so beautifully, but it had a few little flaws that took away from its beauty somewhat.

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! :)
