Valentine's Day Rose Challenge


Yours Forever  oil - 7 x 5

Daily Paint Works' weekly challenge is to paint a rose using the supplied photo or another rose. I used the photo but changed it slightly to show hints of leaves in the background. This was the first time I have ever painted a rose in oil. Roses are challenging to paint but very appropriate for Valentines Day. I hope everyone has a day full of love.

I can't believe this is your first time to paint a rose in oil. Great job!

Thanks! I painted a rose in watercolor a few year back. I enjoyed your blog. Your paintings are lovely.
