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.

Sunflower

Sunflower watercolor on paper 8.5" x 11.5"/21.5 x 29 cm.

I couldn't resist buying this sunflower from the market the other day. It usually dies before I manage to finish painting it from life. It almost felt like it waited for me to finish: it started drooping only once I was done.

A Rose Aglow

A Rose Aglow watercolor sketch on paper 18 x 26 cm

The rose in this painting is situated in front of my daughter's high school. As I was walking past it, the sun was hitting it in a way that made it seem it was glowing with a beautiful mix of yellows and pinks.  I recently purchased some paints from the Ecoline liquid watercolor line. I enjoyed playing here with the pleasant intensity they possess. With this type of liquid ink there is the possibility of degradation of its properties over time, I will keep it for sketching purposes only.
