Plein Air Painting: Take 2

The Rose Garden
12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

In the last post I shared a plein air painting I did in watercolor last week at Smith Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw, GA.  I was there another day that week and did the same scene in oils, which I promised to share, so here it is. having a little trouble translating form painting to an accurate photo of it, this was the closest I coud get, but still doesn't quite do the real thing justice.  The red roses on the trellis are not quite as bright in the real painting as in the photo, so the emphasis in the painting is more on the peach rose bush in front.
