Rose Study 1

Rose Study 1/ oil on board/ 4 x 4/ Suttons Gallery
Lit from the left, on a dark cloth, here is my rose after Qiang's workshop.

Artist Note: The background was transparent red oxide and ultramarine blue.  The green leaves used cad yellow green plus cad yellow and/or thalo or ultramaring blue. The rose was cad red light, alizarin crimson, cad yellow light, white plus some background grey mixed in for shadow areas. This is tiny so getting district brushstrokes without smearing is still a challenge.
