This was an experiment from a photo and I’m happy with how it turned out. It was done in about 45 minutes from start to finish, which is all the time I have this morning! I think there’s a value in timed work. Maybe it takes the thinking brain/critic out of the equation at least temporarily.
The colors are permanent rose and pyroll orange for the bloom, and the stem and leaves are indanthrone blue, new gamboge and carmine. It’s on an 8″ square paper, but I have it cropped landscape.
I’m not sure what to call this. Any suggestions? I’m playing with full out bloom, fully in bloom, cabbage rose, handful of bloom. I think I’m being too literal, so help!
Update: Thanks to Charlie at doodlewash.com for the name Morning Rose. I like it!
Thanks for stopping by.
