My Red Rose Bloom was the entry for the recent Valentines Day Rose at The Daily Painting Works Challenge. And a real challenge it was too! I struggled with the little petals, trying to keep them impressionistic and to not over work them. In the end, I learned a thing or two about painting a red rose and I'm happy with the overall outcome. What do you think?
There are over one hundred and thirty fantastic versions of a red rose on the DPW site. Take a look here.
