I have recently started painting with acrylics again. It has been years (like in my teens). I have been working with watercolors previous to this. Anyway, here is a painting I recently finished. I call it Red Rose.

My photo didn't turn out very well. A little glare on the right side in the black background and petals. I will be sure to take a better quality photos outside next time.

Size 30"x30" wrapped gallery canvas.

well done. just out of curiosity, did you only use a red and black for the colors? It has a very monochromatic feel to it.

Thanks everyone for the great comments.

This is the second acrylic painting I have done, needless to say it took me a while.

scottsart: there are other colors I used in this painting ie; Phthalo blue, Yellow Hansa, Cad Orange, etc. The photo doesn't show it. Also, I have a tendency to over blend.

TxAggieDarlin: I too thought about the dew drop. It was an after thought, the piece is varnished. Can you paint over varnish?

Again, thanks for all of your wonderful comments.

Looks great! I like the way you cropped the rose, also the vivid red against the dark background, I like the dark folds in the rose.

I'd love to see this on a wall, it would be very dramatic!

Depends on what you used for a varnish.

Fabulous rose....it must look stunning on the wall. As to your question about painting over varnish...I do it all the time, as long as you remember to varnish over the piece you have added. absolutely beautiful.
