I finished the Cotton Candy Rose today. I enjoyed toying around with the different shades of pink and reds. Subtle shadows make the body of a light colored rose pop and I hope I got there in this one. The background is a very dark green. I used a photo of the rose to follow as a guide, but I didn't like the leaves in the photo; so I took license to grow some. My palette in this 16x16 oil was mainly: white, aliz crimson, red, blue, green lt, sap green, cad yellow lt, red lt, orang, paynes gray, and some I probably forgot. LOL
The new year has started off well for us. I hope the same for you. You are invited to follow my blog and email me if you have any questions.
