Yellow rose

I notice that most of the entries in this week's rose challenge on DPW have opted for the rose 'portrait' whereas I have opted to make the rose my centre of interest within a composition consisting of other elements. This is probably because I don't paint many floral subjects and find roses in particular quite a challenge to paint well... sorry about the pun! I know we should consider the colour shapes and not get too caught up with over describing, but even so, this is a tough one!
