I love the style & mood of this painting. These stunning roses were inspired by the beautiful gardens in Paris. I was lucky I just seemed to be there at the right time where the roses are in full bloom. I particularly loved the colour hues in these roses. I also enjoyed the slight imperfections in some of the petals. Then central beauty is photographed slightly from above so it appears to be sleeping, surrounded by other roses in different stages of growth. There are many different colours in this painting. I have high lightened all the pinks with different golden tones, purples, greys & slight greens. I love delving into my palette & transforming these stunning roses into luxurious almost velvet blooms.
