Pink Rose

I painted this pink rose at a Karen O'Neil workshop in July. I'm not quite sure why I didn't post it except that I had to go out of town two days later and I had a lot on my mind.  It's been hanging in my studio and I've come to like it. So I thought I would share a couple of things I learned; deep in the shadows the colors get warmer and more saturated and the tips of the petals reflect the background color. 


  1. O-o-o-oh loves those warm shadows - thanks for pointing that out - lovely piece!

  2. Thank you for the rose tips. This one is lovely. I plan to work on some soon.

    1. Thanks Jo. I learned so much more. Now I have to put it to use.

  3. Thanks for the tips; really shows depth.

  4. Beautiful, thank you putting words to what you learnt! I have some roses to paint too:)
