6 x 8"
oil on linen panel (Ray Mar)
I struggled a bit with this one and ended up re-doing the flower because it had gotten too tight. I'm trying to keep the brushwork loose. The background, however, came easily and I'm very pleased with my circles. The softness is a nice contrast. This new kid would be a great match for "Longing."
The reference photo was taken on September 26. It was a great day for roses. Please note that I've added some share buttons to each posting. Use them to spread the word and share with friends and family. That would really help me out. Thanks!
