Pink Rose, Step 1

I decided to start with the pink rose, as it is the most dramatic.  Here is my first step.  Sometimes when I do something that's basically all one color, I paint the first color, then add, getting darker with each step.  But as with this one, sometimes I will paint each flower petal separately, so that my shading is exactly the color combination I want.  This is larger than I originally planned.  The paper is about 15" square.  It's a good start, I think.
