A Week Of Roses

 Given I am still without all my art supplies (they are somewhere on the Pacific Ocean), I have been enjoying going back through some old sketchbook pages from last year.  This week I have found myself in a mood for roses, and yes, they are one of my favorite flowers.

To finish the week, I thought I would show you this yummy rose I painted in my Stillman & Birn "Epsilon" Series Sketchbook.  It's done using Delta Ceramcoat Matte Acrylic, Luminarte's Silks Acrylic Glaze, and Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencil.

The leaves were trimmed with a flutter of gold leafing, just for fun.  

Drawing roses is not easy for me, but I love the way the light plays within the petals. They are a beautiful subject and although this weeks series of blog posts may have been better suited for the Valentine's Day week, it was fun to present nonetheless.

Have a great rest of the week, and weekend.  

Thanks for checking in. xx
