Original Oil Painting Rose #3

Rose # 3

8" x 10"
Painted on gessobord.

My goal with this rose was to capture the strong light and dark contrasting areas. It is the areas in-between the highlights and shadows that I found to be very challenging. The pink petals have tints of orange and violet. The leaves have a wide variety of yellow green and blue green not to mention the hints of red and orange lines. I thought for a second to leave the hints of red, orange and yellow lines out but it creates this wonderful unity with the petals. Challenging but fun. 

I love color!
