  4. Okay Celia! You are one rocking artist! So very pleasantly surprised to see the so very beautiful drawing of "Mary!" Of course I love so much about this piece! Great joy "seeing" what you decided not to draw! So very important to leave something for the viewer to complete in art! Bravo!
    Now, these two watercolors are no surprise! Which is great! Like Wendy mentioned they have so much of your very colorful distinctive style that I am coming to love and maybe even expect!!! Wow! I love the way you use the medium. Fluid! Again the colors are dramatic! Outstanding my art friend!
    Keep them coming buddy!
    Lover Of Color Michael!

  6. Fantastic work, Celia. Love the colors in the watercolors--such blues and yellows. And that stripe of red in Sun Ripe makes my heart go zing!
    Your Madonna is lovely too.

All about Roses

 View of Rome from the Pincian Hill watercolor on paper 23 x 30.5
My friend, Michelle Endersby,  asked if I would enjoy doing a sketch of a rose in Rome for her monthly newsletter. Michelle's work has the most beautiful art inspired by roses and nature (click here to view her work). She shares her knowledge about roses, rose gardens, most importantly her current artworks. She has an amazing collection of roses from her personal garden, homeland of Australia and travels. (you can view them on her  Instagram page)

Rome has many beautiful gardens. My thoughts went back to a rose I remembered seeing in the Pincian Gardens. I always hoped to have the opportunity to go back to paint this image. I was lucky enough when I made it back up there to find roses to sketch, it happened to be just as the sun was setting.  The light became golden, sharpening the colors of the already beautiful subject for me.



my sketch done on site
