Roses Are Difficult!
No secret there! This time I wanted to paint a rose in gouache.
Benefits are that it doesn’t get to be like ‘a whirlwind’ of paints, like oil painting quickly can become when painting a rose.
Still you can get too far with gouache even so.
Working with the gouache felt good again, I went to the flower store to find tulips, but they were all sold out. Found this rose there.
It’s fun how the dark backgrounds feels like the object was painted indoors. But of course, if you’ve been reading my blog posts, you know that I paint my still lifes for 99.99% outdoors.
And if you have :) you know why.
