I brought this rose for my husband for Valentines Day. It’s the first time I have painted a rose, it’s not easy but I enjoyed it. Its called a Naomi rose, with soft velvety petals.

I painted it being totally unsure as to how it would turn out, I used lots of rich reds layered wet into wet paint. I’m pleased with my first attempt and look forward to doing more. Possibly soon as I had a pretty bouquet from hubby today 🙂
