Garden Rose IV



My roses this year are exceptional. The bushes are simply loaded with blossoms and they are lush and full. This is the first one picked this season. I saved a little brown jar from my yeast. I love browns and the golden colors that appear when the light shines through them. This painting happened so easily today...it just flowed right off the tip of the brush.

I really like the color you used on the rose and you are right about the brown jar with the light refecting through. Nice one!
