Old Roses

A beautiful image and lovely colours. Thank-you for your recent comment on Converse Allium, I've done my best to answer your question.

Full of imagination and energy, well done. The roses in particular are cleverly worked. Love the way you "play" with paint and are not afraid to experiment

I started this in an abstract way - damp paper, chucking paint on, etc, but I knew I wanted flowers this time. I used paint straight from the tube for the blooms, wiping it around with tissue. I also used a lot of water, wiping paint away for the light areas. When dry, I completed the image with +ve & -ve painting to suggest leaves & buds.
