San Giovanni D'asso Rose

San Giovanni D'Asso Rose
6 x 8 oil painting
by Pat Fiorello

Some of my students at the recent "Painting Villas and Gardens of Italy" workshop wanted to see a demonstration on how to paint a single rose.

So one afternoon, we set out to the garden of the villa where we were staying and I did a short demo on this rose. The sun wasn't cooperating too much,  but with a little artistic license was able to show how to simplify the rose into big shapes- -the light shape, the shadow shape, the background and suggest the rose without having to slavishly copy every petal and little detail.
