View Full Version : Bud Rose

Well, after finding this forum, and just a few threads, I couldn't resist, wanted to add this painting I did last week. I think Carol and Maureen have seen this in Acrylics. It's just a bud rose on gallery wrapped canvas in Acrylics. I'm working on improving my flower skills right now :)

C & C Welcome!!

Rose buds have their own special charm, don't they? Something about new promise, I think. Anyway, you've done a beautiful job on this one. Can I ask about the size?

those yellows - so difficult to achieve, are really soft and lovely.
I do like the 'tapestry' efect in the background :D

This is lovely, very gentle feeling. I especailly like the little touches of red in the bud.

It is just as lovely in this forum as it was in acrylics.

Hi everyone, thank you for your lovely comments on this.
Mikki.......yes, I agree, about the buds, I haven't painted many roses, so working on them. This is just a little one from a reference that I cropped from a WDE. It's 8 x 10 Acrylics.
Maureen......I'm not really a yellow flower fan, but wanted to try paint some that were not muddy, or harsh looking. I used cad yellow light, and naples yellow, zinc white and naphol red. I think it worked pretty good. Thanks.
pinkrybns....glad you liked the touches of red. They were just something I added on a spur of the moment at the end.:) Glad you think they helped.
Carol.....thanks for your lovely comments again.

Beautifully soft and soothing to the soul. :heart: I'm not a big rose fan, but for some reason, I really like this one. I think it's the gentle white highlights and soft flushes of pink on the petals. Very lovely!

Thank you Bayoudragon and Celeste!
Bayoudragon I'm happy that you found it soft and soothing. That was exactly what I was hoping to portray, and your comment was so lovely to read. Thank you. :)
