The Rose

One of my latest watercolours...the rose. I used a reference photo that I found on the internet. A white rose. In the shadows on white flowers one can see all the colours of the spectrum.

Sandy, this is wonderful, a truly beautiful floral watercolor, with some real personality and style! I cannot stand the generic-looking "perfect" florals, they irritate and bore before I can even avert my eyes, heh. This makes me want to look and linger.
You're not posting enough here, let's see more...and more....
Your fan, Nick

Nick, what a lovely surprise! Great to see your post!
I know I am rather neglectful of my blog....time is the problem.
Ditto...your fan, Sandy

Finally got time Sandy, to tell you how I like this painting. Mind you 'The Deep' keeps drawing me back too. I agree with Nick. Not enough show on this site. WE WANT MORE! Come on guys.

Absolutely gorgeous. I'm not usually a fan of "florals" but this one is wonderful.

Absolutely Gorgeous Sandy! I find working with white can be so difficult and you did this amazingly - beautiful contrasts and tones...Bravo!

Sandy said...

Thank you Lisa...I love working in w/colour and florals sort of lend themselves to watercolour.
