We are in the midst of an unusual cold spell here in Northern California. We are only about an hour north of San Francisco and not used to nighttime temperatures in the low 20's.......for about 10 days running. So when I looked for a rose to paint today it was obvious that it was the last winter rose. Dormancy is upon them.
This painting was done with the Zorn palette in mind for the Daily Paintworks Challenge. I notice no entries yet........it is a very limiting challenge and it is also the holiday season. We are all busy. See the Daily Paintworks Challenge site above to learn about the Zorn palette.
I painted on an old support that was very dark. That was also a nice change for me.
And I just had fun.
