Rose .....almost finished


I've joined into a June project at WetCanvas -a wonderful artists forum I'm a member of- and we were to paint a rose and post it on the due date for all to see. I decided to do a hybrid tea rose and concentrate on the heart of it, the core of the rose. I've almost finished it, still some work left, with the outer petals and at least one more color glaze maybe two, to get to the color I want. But so far I'm quite pleased with it, and thought I'd post it here to see what it looks like.

Used Golden Full Body Acrylics on 16x20 gallery wrapped canvas.
I've carried the painting on to the sides, so no need to frame it unless one wants to.

This is a really pretty painting, I especially love the shade of pink. Very Goergia O'Keefe.
Good luck with your daily painting mission. Don't think I would have such stamina to do it myself but very admirable nonetheless!

Khairun hi nice to see you again, and thank you for your lovely comments. Georgia was one of the first artists whose works I drooled over.....lol
Daily painting would be hard for me too. :) My goal is to do some kind of artwork everyday, be it drawing, painting, sketching, graphite,or charcoal. I find it's not something I have to think about much now, I usually get something down on paper or what have you, almost every day.:)I find that my skills are improving too, which was the goal.

So pretty! The soft pink shade boosted the graceful swirl. It has that appeal that the longer you look at it, the prettier it gets, the more you want to stare. It has a strong feminine appeal to it too.
