touch up 8" x 8" oil on panel

I don't know what it is about pink flowers but these really challenge me.
I am happy that I got the vase, but man- I really struggled with these geraniums!
And lets not even talk about fabric folds....
But- I am happy with this anyway.

Talk to Jeannie about pink flowers - seriously, she is the queen. BUT I also think pink is a very hard color - I have about 15 shades of red/pink. OK. I have more than that! I think the trick is to get the dark pink, a total saturated color - no added anything, and then work up the light hitting the petals around it. And HEY, you did a GREAT job on the VASE! You KNOW I'm kidding, right? And the fabric rocks, too.
