This is my third Rose painting in a series. I was fascinated by the backlighting and how the bright and warm colors on the left really stood out against the cool purples of the rose petals in the shade. I really loved the background on this painting and how it brought the roses forward.
I love painting in watercolors. I love the way the colors glow through each layer and fill with light, like stained glass.
All my watercolor paintings are painted on Arches 300# cold-pressed, bright white watercolor paper. Arches paper is archival and acid-free. I use M. Graham and Winsor and Newton's professional watercolor paints. My colors are permanent and archival and will not fade or change color! I will never paint with fugitive colors no matter how beautiful or vibrant they are. It is important to me that my paintings will last a lifetime and beyond with the proper care and attention.
