Roses

 Close ups

Oil on 7x5 canvas panel.

 This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Patricia was the gracious hostess.

 I chose those roses this week. My goal was to play with broken edges. This was done by first using brushes...then a paint shaper to move paint and influence the edges...then painting knife. I like the resulting impressionistic and active surface this technique brought about.
This technique was developed by a very sharing blogger Julie Ford Oliver.


C&C welcome. Thanks for taking a peek and I appreciate your comments.

  1. Hi there Dean!... Your rose study is light... lovely... loosely painted... and the lost edges really invite close study and interpretation! Great colour and light as well! A gem!

    A grand and glorious start for 2013!

    Good Painting... and playing Dean!

    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

    1. Thank you very much, Sherry!
      Backgrounds nearly always give me concern...never know exactly what I'm going for...maybe lack of pre planning? Glad you like this one.
