Acrylic paint on canvas (1) and acrylic paint on mat board (2)
Size 14"x 11"
I did not set out to do 2 paintings but the first painting, I was not happy with the color of the rose or the background effect.It looked altogethr too heavy. I could not get the light to shine through the petals so I tried another technique for painting 2
I used a different color combination for the rose and did lots of thin washes similar to using water color to get a lighter effect on the petals. I also decided to make it a design rather than a direct copy, I think I prefer that one.
