ROSES - 2

The coral rose has the most layers, beginning with some Quin. gold. I added Quin. coral, Quin. rose and then played with adding them as needed. I believe I used some indanthrone blue in the shadows.

Layerslayerslayers, just my cup of cake, yums! Such a delicate look Deb, I'm loving the white backgrounds of these demos too, make the roses pop up even more

Trains, teapots, ornaments, jars, and now roses. I don't believe you've met a subject yet that you can't paint beautifully.

Jeanette said...

This is lovely. The colours and transitions are beautiful.

Getting over my fear of painting flowers has to be on my to do list for 2011!

Deb and Rhonda - glad you like the petals!
Teresa - layers - you betcha! That's the key! I like white backgrounds sometimes - especially for these roses since they take center stage!
Lisa - while I sincerely appreciate your comment - you ain't seen me do none a them pesky landscapes now, have ya! (i.e. I cannot paint landscapes - or portraits) so that's 2 subjects I cannot paint!! (but who's counting!!)
Jeanette - flowers are easy and fun - no fear there! You can do it!

As you can see, my husband got into my blog and left a comment (unknown to me). Since it wasn't tooooo uncomplimentary, I'll leave it up (and make sure it never happens again!!!) The Real Deb Ward!!!
