Winter Rose



This was a challenging color scheme for me to work with.  I don't know about you but roses can be tricky!
They either seems to just come easy or very difficult depending on the day.  I enjoy them, and this time of year in Arizona they are in bloom.  So I will be busy painting more.
Colors I used:  Permanent rose, cad Yellow pale, transparent brown & red oxide, sap green, phalo turquoise blue, cobalt blue, titanium white.  For the background I mixed Terra Rosa hue with cobalt blue and white.  
Hope you have a Happy New Year!

Winter Rest

I painted this because I just had too!  I have an affinity for the quiet in the woods after the snow falls.  Hardly any noise because no one was on the road driving
Hardly anyone went out for a walk like me.  I feel those memories come rushing back to me when I saw this picture on the Internet.  It is such a busy time of year I hope that we all find some rest during the holidays and are refreshed for the new year!  
May it be a Joyful time, for you and your families!
