The elusive rose

Still trying to capture roseness with only a few strokes. Just shapes. This painting was done over an old one which really helps with all the texture. I love the texture. I find it really enhances the feeling I want. So my bloom is better but that bud in front is awfully straight. I am not thinking nature is like that!

  1. Even without a lot of brushstrokes it is clearly a rose and a beautiful one with some nice grey's in it .

  2. I love texture too and this fits the bill perfectly. It also delights my color sense with such lovely harmony. The background color is beautiful next to the white rose

  3. very good! Could not be better!
