Roses and Fence
Despite evening temperatures dipping below 60F, the roses seem revived by the cooler airs. My knock-out reds and pinks are blooming for all they're worth - giving a colorful vibrancy to the dulling greens around them.
This image was painted from a photo reference. We've added several reds and pinks to the front garden, but they're not quite as large as this! Not yet anyway. The reds at the Arboretum have certainly reached this magnificent size and like mine at home, are blooming in incredible profusion.
There's a watercolor demo at my local art supply store today that I think I'll catch. It seems like nine-forevers since 'art in Italy' and I really love seeing how other artists work!
Hope your day is terrific!
