Raindrop Rose

I went walking in the rain this morning and a beautiful rose caught my attention! The paper I chose for this painting is a soft velour, which helps to convey the velvety feeling of petals. I don't usually do realism, so this was hard work!

  1. So beautiful! This is breathtaking.

  2. Wow. I showed it to Mark and he thought it was a photo. This is lovely, lovely, lovely. I love the blend of the colors, and the raindrops do look quite real.
