Stephenie's Rose

Jim Phillips

Jacksonville, NC, United States

Artist's Description

Watercolour using Winsor Newton paints on Fabriano watercolor paper. 140lb.

Everyone who has children or grandchildren understands that what you do special for one has to be done for the other. This is Stephenie’s attempt at a painting. (Stephenie is my oldest grandaughter.) The truth of the matter is that Stephenie probably doesn’t share her younger sister’s passion for art. So this painting represents a shared effort. Meaning that like the one Sarah did, I sketched the image out for her and she painted about 60% of it. I ended up doing the finishing details on this one, like the soft colors in the rose petals. I still allowed her to sign her name on the painting. I felt that it was still important for her as well to simply have the exposure to painting.
