I have painted many roses, but this is my first time I painted a red rose, if I remembered correctly. I usually like my center of focus brighter than its background to create a glowing effect. I think it would be very difficult to do that with red roses, so I used lighter background for this one. Picking up the right red color for the rose is another difficulty. I will paint more red roses in the future and experiment with different types of reds.
I am on my way to Houston after this post. I will teach a workshop there and I will let you know how it turns out next week.
