Re: Parade of Roses

Nicely painted to a very dramatic affect. I especially like the pink rose, front right. Gary

Very nice. Is the background painted or is the painting on a black support?

Agree with Gary that the front pink rose really stands out. The colors are so clean and realistic.

Re: Parade of Roses

Thankyou for your comments -

Trikist and Artist_by_Accident.

The pink rose gave me fits ... as it was the last rose painted and I wanted it to visually come forward vis-a-vis the rest of the roses.

I could have done this on white paper by masking the roses -
but I chose to see what happens on actual black 140 cold press paper.

See beginning of this painting -

Obtaining the glow was an uphill struggle... but I believe the end result was worth the effort.

Thanks again,


PS - I tried something like this years ago for an article on guoache.
