Changing Rose


Transparent Watercolor 20" x 14"
I found these roses in a public garden and thought them so beautiful, not too many petals (to paint) and I especially loved how they changed colors as they aged. I painted this about three years ago when the twins were a little more independent and I could finally dive back into watercolors. I felt like I exploded with color and energy while doing this one so It's probably my favorite flower painting I've done.
I decided to post this one also because I'm a little backed up with my paintings because of back to school stuff and a surprise I'll post in a couple of days. Stay tuned!

Pablo,
This painting is wonderful - the subtle difference of light and shadow within each flower is masterful! Of course, the leaves are also beautiful with the veins and color transitions. I would call this painting "exquisite" because it reflects the beauty of these flowers at their very peak of glory. Did you keep this one or sell it?
