Pale Pink Rose
I took another break from painting oils and did another rose in watercolor. There is a certain pink that I see people use for painting roses. However as hard as I try I can never seem to get this color down. I used a photo of Laura's Rose from Pilan ( Wet Canvas), thank you so much Pilan for this. I used Scarlet Lake and a little Permanent Rose for the flower, but still not the pink I wanted. However I do like the color and it doesn't go toward a rose or violet color which mine usally go to. I started very light and worked up the color with many different layers. I hope you like this rose as much as I did painting it. Please stop in and let me know what you think. I really appreciate everyone who looks and comments on this.
