My friend gave me a bunch of gorgeous roses from her garden a couple of months ago, and I immediately took pictures so I could paint them.
Watercolour paints and paper at the ready
Several failed attempts later I was happy with this one, painted freehand with the brush as my pencil.
Hate the light pink rose, love the rest of the painting
My latest watercolour efforts
I made Cudgegong Afternoon to put in the show in town. Although it took me several weeks to finish as I painted it in layers of very diluted pigments, I really enjoyed the process,
The new owners of Cudgegong Waters Park were so delighted that I consented to let them buy it, because they absolutely loved it.
Please enjoy it.
Update: Veronica called in to show me the framed painting. It looks spectacular!

I painted a watercolour close focus picture of a beautiful rose from my friend’s garden, and presented it to her for Christmas.
Loved doing all the glazing in this one. 8in x 8in Fabiano cold pressed paper and Art Spectrum paints.
