Rose

Rose
6x6 oil on cradled panel $150
 
Rose with Quinacridone Rose, a good match.  I am enjoying my new colors.  This went through several changes and I may change it again.
 
 
I liked some of the brushwork but the rose was too centered and the leaves too prominent. So
Wipe - out!
 
A wipe-out is actually a good thing.  The ghost image often has promise, the layer of paint makes the next go on smoother and the thin left-over color helps to keep edges soft.
