After I took my arrangement home, I set it up in my studio in front of a white board and side lit it to paint from while the flowers were still fresh. I was working on a small panel to do a quick study so had to compromise on some of the height which I regret, but overall was happy to get the feel of the rose topiary in a suggestive way without having to report every last petal.
