View Full Version : Don Juan Roses in Vase

04-16-2009, 10:42 AM
I seldom paint flowers - they intimidate me with their beauty and all those petals but I couldn't resist these Don Juan Roses I had in my vase.

Painted with acrylics on oil painting paper, 12 by 16

Any comments or suggestions are very welcome. :o

Stunning... not that my opinion matters, but the flowers do not appear to intimidate you in the least.

Very dramatic Purple - I like the extra emphasis on the vase; and the flowers emerging from the B/g is lovely.

Well, your flowers intimidate ME, lol, but it definitely seems that YOU have them down pat. That is beautiful. I had to look several times, I kept "feeling" immense detail that implied, but not actually painted. WOW.

That is gorgeous I wish I would be able to paint glass like that. You inspire me to give it another try. The roses are fantastic.

You have wildly overcome your intimidation. Outstanding impressionistic effort.

Your handling of the crystal vase and the reflections in the polished table top are extra impressive - a lovely painting. From now on I'll be watching for those reflections on a polished surface!

Nice work on the glass but the rose color seems to be spot on. This is one of my favorite roses and I have a bush in my yard with about 25 blooms on it right now.
