Roses are the classic subject for a painting. Their complex spiral of petals can drive an artist almost mad if you were to try and paint everyone. My plan for this painting was to do everything I could to keep these roses looking like roses but still holding on to the simplicity that I saw when I was setting up my composition.
This original work was painted with gouache on 300lbs watercolor paper.
Gouache is known for its wonderful colors and velvety matte finish. This is a work on paper and therefore should be framed behind glass or plexiglass.
The painting is packed in a transparent plastic bag with a thick layer of foam core to prevent any bending. It can be stored this way on a shelf until you decide to frame it. It will be shipped in a hard card box.
This painting is being sold unframed.
