Vertigo Rose

Ken Powers

Tacoma, United States

Artist's Description

The concept of this piece was to create an hypnotic vertigo spiral while incorporating rose petals. I had a little trouble balancing the center of the piece with the two concepts while still maintaining a somewhat realistic rose but I am pleased with the end result. The piece is painted with Winsor & Newton and Rublev 18th century reproduction watercolor paints on Arches 140# cold-pressed paper. The coarse nature of the paper coupled with the Rublev paints created some interesting textures in the petals and shadows of the rose. The original painting is 21.75″×14.25″ in size.
