A Golden Rose

Golden Rose - September, 2011
colored pencil on stonehenge paper ~7.5"h x 5.5"w

Finished another flower! Yay me. :o) Truth be told, yellow/golden roses are not my favorite color of roses, but I'd never turn down a bouquet filled with them. :o)

Lately, I've been busy, busy, busy with a lot of flower drawings and paintings. Mainly it's because I like growing flowers, I like getting & giving flowers (happy that I moved to Holland!) and I like drawing & painting flowers. Flowers are pleasent models. ;o)

For this drawing I used:
Sanford Prismacolors reg. colored pencils
Caran d'Ache Luminance colored pencils
Caran d'Ache Pablos reg. colored pencils
Sanford Prismacolors Colorless Blender pencil
Stonehenge paper - white

Edit to add: It appears I'm posting flowers on Tuedays in this month... how odd! Wonder what next Tuesday will bring...

tot ziens,
Judy

Wow, strong and vibrant and dramatic. No soft buttery yellow rose, that!

I've started my watercolour lessons as well, and I've painted a tulip (of course, we were surrounded with them in Canada!), pink roses and I am working now on an interesting Bahamian flower.
