Re: Rose Bowl WIP

Hi again....

Thanks for joining us, Nic, Terri and Scotty.

Now Scotty...did I not say I was going to keep it simple for these last 5 paintings of the year? Well....small anyway.

The large flower is almost complete so mainly baby's breath and bowl left to do. I'm getting tired but would love to hang on and finish this tonight. We will see if my feet can last.



Cheers, Dianna

Re: Rose Bowl WIP

Thank you Ron.

Well here it is, I can go and have a late supper now and put my feet up. Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I hope you enjoy the finished product.

Portraying yellow roses with pink tips was indeed a challenge. The darkest colour of the tablecloth is Sennelier's #177 green.



Cheers, Dianna

Re: Rose Bowl WIP

I just found this thread .

What an absolute stunner, Dianna! The colors of the roses and the detail throughout are just breathtaking.

Thanks for treating us to another WIP; it is delightful to watch your painting process unfold.

Re: Rose Bowl WIP

Ah yes, pure Ponting glory. Enjoy your well deserved feet up rest. I don't know what part is my favorite, probably irredescent reflection. All of it is so beautiful.

Re: Rose Bowl WIP

Diana - WOW!!! What a beautiful painting! Thanks so much for the advice and explaining your process. I will try your idea for seeing the color and value. I think the hardest place to see color is in the shadows. I didn't even realize how hard it was until I took a workshop in Chicago with Sally Strand. It was excellent - but so hard!! I started seeing things I had never seen before. You must be very tired after your hard day of work today - but it was a very fruitful day!!

Re: Rose Bowl WIP

Diana - one more question - what pastels do you use on the LaCarte? A variety or pencils? Your painting is so realistic it is amazing.

Re: Rose Bowl WIP

Thank you so much everyone. I'm happy that you like it.

Lynn...in answer to your question. I use all sorts of pastels. This one has Terry Ludwigs, Unisons, NuPastel, Holbien and one Sennelier...LOL I prefer Carb Othello pencils but have many brands and use whatever colour fits but always reach for the Carbs first however there is very little pencil in this other than greens for the stems of the baby's breath and black and white on the bowl.

Cheers and thanks again...Di
