|rose painting - acrylics 2011-12|
PS I found the actual model photo. Here's the demo video I made of painting it:
I started painting from the live model, but it started to rain so I took a photo and continued painting indoors. The rose gradually faded until its petals fell from the stem. I was glad of that photo.

I haven't seen many peonies this year so I grabbed these white ones at the supermarket. the anemones are much more suitable for painting. I hope I can get some pink peonies before their season is over.

Fabio Cembranelli has painted a delightful watercolour featuring them:
Below are two Renoirs. The first is very much in the traditional flower painting genre, while the second is obviously impressionist. Just type 'Renoir anemones' into a search engine and you will be richly rewarded!
