Here is a silk ribbon piece I'm experimenting with, after learning the techniques from my masterclass with Valentina, I am applying them to a few different David Austin style Roses...when I am happy with what I want to achieve, I can start my larger composition.

 

Orange ribbon roses, Ingrid Lee

 

I have been using acrylics to paint onto these, but I'll have to invest in some silk paints as the colours aren't strong enough.  Like I said, this is just playing with techniques...I'll be happier when I'm using silk ribbons as they have a softer flow to the form of the flowers, satin is too stiff (this project has been done in satin just to practise with so I don't waste the more expensive silk ribbons).  I'll try one more rose study, just a single bloom without the angular leaves and try to capture the more rounded shapes as much as I can with satin ribbon, but really it's to understand how many individual petals I need to make and how to structure the heart of the rose correctly...so I'll keep playing until I am happy with these.
