The two roses were to be the main focus and to get that really pink colour, I wanted it to look candy pink, like a fairy floss colour, a slight exaggeration of reality. The colours used to achieve the petal tones were Art Spectrum Flinders Red Violet, Spectrum crimson and Windsor and Newton Opera Rose, which is one of my favourite colours to paint with as it has a fluorescent dye in the pigment. It's hideously expensive but i love it.
I'm happy with the final outcome of the painting. The colours are a bit crazy and reminds me of a lolly shop but I quite like it !
