Blue Tipped Rose Oil Painting

The Blue Tipped Rose Oil Painting is on a 16 by 20 inch gallery wrap canvas.  I selected this rose to paint because of it's unique combination of colors.  The work was a nice challenge in mixing and blending to get the results for a realistic approach.  I changed several of the petal shapes hopefully to give the rose center a more traditional look and make it easier for me to paint.  The black background really makes the rose vivid.  The pallet is very simple using a bit aliz. crimson, permanent rose, purple, prussan blue, lamp black, and tit. white.  By the way, back grounds take longer to dry.
I want thank and give to credit Mr. Andreas Hensel for the use of the reference photo he contributed to the public domain web site Pixabay.

Hope you like the work and come back to visit.

God Bless You,
