The Rose by NoraBlansett The Rose by NoraBlansett
4" x 6", Watercolour, Ink, Colour Pencil accents.

This image was inspired by and referenced from: [link] It is NOT identical and the ladybug was my own addition.

I almost threw this away. I got "experimental" and thought I'd ruined it. I decided to just go with it and see what happens. I'm "satisfied" with it. I haven't painted a rose like this ever -- so...

I decided to paint the ladybug in flight. There are always pieces of ladybugs chillin' on petals, so I went for ladybug in action.

Let me know what you think... Should I have tossed it?

My favorite flower is a rose! I think you did a great job and the way the colors of the petals lightly bleed into the white is wonderful!

Watercolour is (in my opinion) a darn hard medium. You have handled it well!

Thank you so very much -- and admittedly, it IS a difficult medium. Very, very unforgiving. I gave it a shot because I saw some paintings my own mother once did, and they were amazing. I never forgot how much I loved the effects watercolour can have. :D

I love the middle of the rose where the colors separate or are coming together.

Thank you very much! I'm still trying to get used to the idea that people like something I almost ripped up and threw away. LOL
