View Full Version : Big Bay Rose
05-03-2003, 11:23 AM
This is a painting I just finished. I'ts a full sheet Arches 200 HP done from a photo I took last summer at Big Bay a place not to far from where I live. (hence Big Bay Rose).
I just about gave up on this a few times but I perservered. I really learned a lot from doing it, now if I can only remember for next one. All comments and critique welcome.
Thanks for looking

Your roses are really beautiful! I wish you had made them a wee bit bigger so that they filled more of the paper. Wonderful painting though.

Full Sheet? Well, this is special indeed!
You certainly can paint a leaf, and after this much practice you could do them in your sleep. I think the amount and detail of these leaves lend a decorative painting look to the work and wonder if the roses would be more pronounced if they were not. I didn't look at the reference photo, so I do not know if you were following it.
I love the violet tone in the roses and particuarly lovely in the center. Love the loose, full blown growing wild rather than florist-quality blooms.
A wonderful work.
Also b/g works great.

Your roses are beautifully done... I especially like the perspective... and a full sheet hp!! wow....

Your roses are beautifully painted. Like Fookie I prefer these wild roses for paintings over the tea roses florists always use.
That was quite an undertaking to make a full sheet painting and you added a lot of detail in the leaves, so I can see why this took you so long.
This is a lovely painting for sure.

WOW, BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! Nothing else to say except now I know that there was genetic influence in Sandy's beautiful work, which I also love!!!!

Hooray you finished and posted the beauty!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:
Absolutely beautiful my friend, and I'm sure you will remember what to do for the next one.
As Uschi mentioned, we sure can see where Sandy got her talent from.
