Yellow Watercolor Rose

10 x 16  watercolor
A little experiment here of a traditional Yellow Rose watercolor painting with a look of contemporary-style framing! Because of the detail this painting of roses took me about a week to paint after I decided on my composition, color design, and finished the pencil sketch. There are usually a couple weeks involved in preparation before I actually stretch the paper, let it dry, and actually begin painting. During the preparation time I usually work on other projects simultaneously.

Yellow, pink, and green are beautiful colors together. The painting is very lifelike.

Thank you! Sometimes I wonder if my taste is what other people like.
