Rose Garden

When I was recently at the coast I photographed the roses there which were in full bloom. This piece is based on some of those photos. It's painted on handmade paper which is very soft and really absorbs the color so there's quite a few glazes on the piece to build the color. I enjoyed working with different reds and greens to bring out the beauty of these roses.
I've photographed the piece so you can see the deckle edges and the irregularity of the handmade paper.
