Blessed, Red Roses, watercolour created in an Impressionistic style.
11 x 15"
Blessed is a watercolour painting on heavy mixed media paper which I created to capture the luscious beauty of these wonderful roses.
I used layers of permanent rose, cadmium red and alizarin crimson for the blooms which gives a tangible, tactile feel to the work. My loose, flowing application of the pigment creates a sense of ethereal beauty, portrayed in the melting blooms, which lingers on in halos of soft pink haziness.
I created dark green foliage as a contrast to the lovely reds.
N.B Please note that on the back a few small areas of slightly thinning of the paper occurred about 1/8 of the way down from the top of the painting due to the paper slightly sticking when removed from the board. This does not show on the front and will not notice when the painting is mounted, however I have reduced the price.
The painting has my signature on the front and on the back my name with the paintings title, date and dimensions.
N.B. 1cm (approx.) border of brown adhesive paper is left on due to the painting process. This will be lost under the mount board or framing process.
All paintings are securely packaged in acid free tissue paper, cellophane, ridged cardboard and one inner card backed envelope and one outer padded envelope.
My paintings are sent via Royal Mail.
