More roses inspired by my fathers wild rose bush that I inherited. The roses on my father's bush are red but I wanted to continue to pursue a similar color scheme as the previous painting. This time I pulled out my Daniel Smith colors. DS paints are really something. I usually use WN but I just love Daniel Smith colors. I was thinking of color more than shape when I painted this.
Off to my son's birthday party. Lucky him he lives on a lake, but the weather today is to cold to enjoy it. My younger son and I recently purchased a boat and we have really been enjoying ourselves. Boating is just as wonderful as I always imagined it to be.

There is absolutely nothing about watercolor that is easy.There are a million different things running through my head as I paint. How can I possibly remember everything? Color mixing, lights darks,focal point, composition, style, emotion, the list goes on and on. At times the frustration can be overwhelming. What have I learned, how come I can't Get this. What is it I want. The process is never ending ..... as it should be I suppose.
I am still working on this painting it is a painting of Turks Cap Lily.Wish I had this in my garden.I need to add some dots and darken the end of the stamens and play around a bit more.
