A Rose is a Rose — 30 in 30 day 4

While the rose bouquet was still looking fresh and lively, I thought I’d do some contour sketching, and then better sketches and then translate it into paint.  So, for today, here’s a rose for you!

For the shadow in the yellow part of the bud, I tried a touch of cobalt into the yellow or the orangy mix.  Still thinking about how to do that better.  Next one I will lift out to get the paler color yellow.  This piece is about 4″ tall and done with transparent yellow, cad scarlet permanent rose, and cobalt.

The 30 in 30 painting challenge is one that I’ve participated in twice yearly for several years and it is always a fun, challenging and productive month when I do it. Click on the link to see other people’s works that they’ve done today.  there are about 1000 artists all over the world participating this time.
