Title: Elegance of Summer Roses
Size: 16 x 20
Medium: oil on stretched canvas
Inspired by the blooming roses in my garden. One of my favorite things to do is go select flowers to cut and arrange in a vase to paint. Roses are one of my favorites, especially if they are fragrant. This oil painting is deep with color and texture and has both fine brush work and impasto palette knife work. I love to layer the colors to create bolder blooms and a bit of brush work adds a softer quality rich in color and depth.
