Portrait of a rose series 8 - oil painting - PROFILE OF A RED ROSE


'Profile of a Red Rose' is an oil painting on canvas of size 6"x8". - Rose Series
Painting a rose is always a challenge, because no two roses are ever the same.

God had created this rose in such a vibrant red, that the temptation to try it on canvas was great.
I have applied thick oil paint in the 'impasto' style to give the textured effect, and chose different types of red to create the light and shadow effect.

This may take some time to dry in this cold weather of Bangalore but it was a pleasure painting this 'profile of red rose'.
