Mackintosh roses

A Charles Rennie Mackintosh design appealed to me tonight for its clean and balanced nearly symmetrical composition, though my 20 minute sketch leaves a lot to be desired compared to the original (on a silk upholstered back of a ca. 1904 chair). My reference photo was black and white, so I picked some soft colors to show off the leaves and roses. Pencil, pen, and watercolor, 5 1/2" x 8".
