Horst I always enjoy seeing you new paintings. This one is no different. It is real treat for the eyes and soul. Here is my feedback ...

Color harmony: Very harmonious well balanced color choice. Strong contrast adds to the theatrical effect introducing inviting intriguing drama on the stage.

3D effect: The rose elements are nicely painted and 3D effect clearly achieved by skillful engagement of highlights and shadows with appropriate color chroma,values and temperature. What I cannot see is "the air" "space behind and and around the rose".

Texture: Very well done. Leaves, dew drops, rose softness ... Maybe the texture of the rose petals could have been more pronounced.

Composition: It is great. All elements are positioned and sized so that the viewer has an interesting and exciting journey through the painting.

Focus: The focus is clearly the rose positioned close to the upper golden mean and slightly increased then the reference photo. It looks much better - great work.

The rounded petals of the rose looks so perfect.I also loved the way you painted the leaves a little closer to the flower which really helps the rose to be the focal point.The soft light makes it a really interesting piece.

Your sense of light in this, and the texture of the rose petals and the rose plant leaves are truly wonderful, Horst.
