Picked up the brush today

I seem to always like the light and dark contrasts so when I looked out of my guest room window the other day I thought the roses looked absolutely beautiful looking from inside. Somehow the colours looked so striking. I don't think they would have looked so striking from the other side so decided to see if I could actually put them on paper with my limited skills of water colour painting. It was a challenge because painting roses is not easy and especially this pink rose with so many petals was a great challenge. Anyway I just wanted to see if I could get that looking from inside out into bright sunlight feeling in this painting. Don't think I archived it though:-)


  1. its a challenging picture to try, i think you did a good job with it :D

  2. I certainly think you achieved it - nice job!! I love the view from the window.

  3. Wow, your painting is beautiful. I would not have the first clue where to begin painting a rose, I would be more likely to grab a camera. Mind you taking a picture from inside out into the sunshine is not easy either.
