Working on loose Roses




On one of my online workshops they are doing loose roses. The whole focus of this website is to stay loose and not over paint or over work the watercolor. That as few brush strokes as possible and your imagination will fill in the blanks. I love the style of it and since my work is so tight I hope to find my niche somewhere in the middle. I don't know if I like everything loose, my eye likes having some hard edges to say "STOP HERE". It lets me rest and then continue my journey around the piece. Here are my loose roses, I thought I should add somemore details but the group said "No" so I would like your feelings. Is less really more?

Oh, the detail-thing is such a hard subject...Sometimes a little detail adds just that little bit of kick, but when you overdo it, the work becomes something else.
I like these paintings of yours the way they are. I can't seem to think how any detail would make them more beautiful? Maybe for fun you can try another one and then add some detail just to compare. I love these, the brushwork and colrs are just wonderful!
