Roses and Placemats

We had a very quiet Mother’s Day with an incredible bouquet of red roses, which demanded to be painted. I am still going strong with combining printmaking and gouache painting, and this was the perfect subject. I am beginning to figure out that by painting directly on the blocks, you can get some interesting color combinations. My favorite part of this is the tangle of green that represents the leaves of the roses.

This is a 12 by 14-inch gouache painting.

    Wonderful Sarah! I love the lines in the roses and textures. My favorite is the spiral rose, the unique one (of course!)
