|Trailing Roses- A Study|
8 x 10 oil painting
My intention for this painting was just to have fun as I get back into the studio since my accident 5 weeks ago. Wanted roses to have some depth and specificity but also to keep some areas, particularly as you near the edges, loose and suggested.
I did base some of the roses loosely on a published photo and made changes to the composition in some areas, but still this study is not for sale just to be respectful of the photographers copyright. Just a warm up and learning exercise for me. It was fun to do and you know I love roses so expect to see more like this in the future.
I will be teaching 2 exciting workshops in 2018- both garden related. "Painting Villas and Gardens of Italy" and "Painting English Gardens" in Cornwall, England. Contact me for details if interested or visit here for Italy or here for England If you are a flower lover, one of these trips might be a dream vacation /learning experience for you. Both workshops are filling up and space is limited, so please be in touch soon if interested.
