Time Out to Paint the Rose


Having never painted a really good rose I'd have to say that statement still stands. Also painting on hot pressed watercolor paper proved to be quite the challenge. The paint tended to sit on top of the surface and lift when I tried to glaze over it. I finally resorted to breaking all the so-called rules of watercolor to rescue this rose to the point of considering posting it here. I used opaques! Shame on me. LOL

It looks pretty translucent to me Billie. I envy anyone who can draw a flower well, I simply butcher them :)
