Rose of Sharon # 1

Happy Saturday

  When I lived up in Pennsylvania I had a lot of these bushes all over the property.  The flowers came in a various shades of rose and violet with some white. Before we moved down here I went out and took a lot of photos of the different color flowers. I thought I would like to start a series of painting them. I finally decided to get started.  I picked the white one as my first since these were my favorite. I used various shades of blues and rose in the petals and then wet in wet for the bg.  It is painted on  1/4 sheet of Arches 140 CP .  Thanks everyone for viewing. Please leave comments, love to read them.
