Description of roses in glass vase

I don’t grow anything well and when I do manage to get a nice bloom I am surprised and grateful. I have set this bouquet in a simple, glass bud vase with the light coming from above and behind so the leaves will have that wonderful mixture of warm and cool greens – a nice foil to the warm pinks and magentas of the flowers. I paint these mostly for myself to keep my brush and eye tuned to the delicacy of tones.
