I never thought I would enjoy painting a rose until I tried this challenge posted by Qiang Huang who is a master in painting roses. He challenged fellow artists too paint a red rose on the weekly DPW Challenge. This is my second one, the first one I loved too and can't wait to try more. I have now fallen in love with red roses and painting them!


My palette colors were Cadmium Yellow Medium, Cadmium Red Light, Chromium Oxide Red, Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White.

  3. Beautiful, Carol. See you are still using a limited palette and it lends itself perfectly to this study.

  4. Really a great job, Carol! The rose, in it's lighting, resembles an actor doing a dramatic part of a play!

  6. What a wonderful excuse for getting lots of roses in the future. Painting from life is always so nice, of course.
    This single rose is beautifully dramatic.
