Under the weather and not myself, my Mom gave me the most beautiful delicate pink roses, which if I could include a scatch-n-sniff, would knock your socks off!!! They smell far better than I can paint them.
Roses are pretty difficult to paint, there is so much information going on there, but very self gratifying to accomplish…little by little and going slow helps to complete. The group of roses in the vase has a lot of negative painting around the leaves. Once you switch your brain to paint negative spaces, it’s not so difficult after all.
Here is a close up of the rose. It was challenging but fun.
I have the best Mom in the world!!!
