No. 17, 30 Day Challenge, Rose Buds

There's still a few flowers left on the Rosa rugosa bushes locally and I had planned to paint a few of these rosebuds today but found I had no time at all with a few unexpected things coming up. So this was as far as I got.  Not much of a photo either but I wanted to post something. So in the spirit of the challenge I did something....even though it's not finished and I'm not at all happy with it.
Will try to better tomorrow!

Very quick watercolour of rosebuds, very dark buds that look like they wont open.

Colours: Flowers, Quinacridone Magenta, Permanent Magenta and Permanent Rose. Add some Winsor Violet for the shadows.
