Artist's Description

A beautiful original watercolor painting of a red and white patterned Victorian rose just opening up, its petals dancing in the summer morning breeze, with a background of green foliage painted in soft focus surrounding it. The deep red, velvety parts of petals are lushly portrayed against the bright white center of the flower, adding variety and interest to the portrait of this unusual flower.

Artist Insight:
In this painting I have tried to add impact to the center flower by utilizing a complementary palette, emphasizing the rich red color of the flower by contrasting it with a spring-green background of leaves and stems. The center flower is depicted in sharp focus, with a variety of warm and cool reds used to hint warm sun-lit parts and cooler shadows and folds. The background is painted wet-in-wet with very limited detail, and the soft focus of it serves to direct the eye of the viewer to the center flower. I used mostly texture and color variations to add interest in the background area and prevent it from getting boring.
