As I worked on this digital painting, it occurred to me that the rose could also present a woman’s head in half profile. She turns away from the viewer and her hair or had or hair-ornament takes centre stage. As the sketch is still available, it is my plan to work on it again to see if I can bring out this shy woman. The best thing about working with digital art is that you always have an option to develop your work further and maybe take it in a different direction.
