#73 'Pink Rose' 5x7"

I am buzzing from an amazing painting weekend! It was at the Old Bank Studios in Harwich, a great set up for painting courses (lovely lunches too!)
Haidee-Jo Summers ran the workshop, she is a wonderful plein air painter, I feel very inspired and full of new ideas. 

This rose was in front of a cottage window, the sun hit the tops of the petals. It was quite tricky to get the richeness of colours but the density of tone as well. Even so I enjoyed it and looking forward to doing more :-)


  1. I think this is one of your best flower paintings...probably because it was painted outside. It feels so natural; the heaviness of the flower head in full bloom hanging down and the two buds ready to take over the show.....lovely :-)

  2. You've caught the colours and the freshness, Clare. I can picture you there!
