In Progress with my painting of "Tranquility"

I have decided to enter again into my local shire Art Gallery yearly ACAA Art Awards in August.

I am painting a white rose but I can't decide what is the best background colour to use. Light makes the painting less attractive, so I thought I'd try a royal rich colour. Hmmmm.

This could change but I do like the ultramarine. May add some teal to brighten it. What do you think?

Still working on the rose.

I like the painting and the large size very much. What are the dimensions of the canvas?

Thank you for your comments to try Magenta. I have experimented with additional SAP GREEN over the top of the UltraMarine... Looks better I think... Also added some leaves at the top to blend in. Tomorrow I will start adding rain drops to give it a more 3D effect.
