Here we have my antique rose painting. Some say purple, some say violet, but this has a bit of red to it too! It is a very subtle purple, just a hint of it in each petal. And as a male, my eye cannot detect some of the full ranges of purple that are available to the female eye. I hope I have the correct blends of them in this work.
I have a very good florist friend that comes along with some very nice finds. Yes, the variety was very fragrant, and I only wish I could grow these. I have painted from the few bushes I try not to kill, but this one was from my friend. And it is a true beauty.
Some say it is also a pink. And that is true, there are blends of pinks within the painting. But they lean to the cool rather than the warm side, so I suppose that's why Debbie called this a purple rose.
Anyway, I hope you like it and consider it for your space. The link below takes you to the sales page at Etsy where they handle the charge card stuff for me.
I really loved the softness and light violet of this rose. The petals turned from a light violet to green on the outside petals, near their edges. Keep tuned in, as I get time, I'll include some of the process including the dew drops on the left side. It will be on one of the demo pages.
