(a journey with watercolour and my dog)
This is so pretty! I can't wait until the flowers start reappearing here. It always makes me want to paint! :0)
Very nice. The way you have used some pink and yellow of the flowers and leaves in the background keeps the eye moving.
That is so soft and pretty. I love what you did with the background too, you are so clever!
Pat, this is so lovely, the colors in the background are so pretty and soft and the leaves and flowers are so nicely sculpted.
This is so nice Pat, and your wet on wet technique works really well with the subject.We used to call these 'dog roses', and I remember in 1959 we were offered threepence a pound at school for collecting the hips in the Autumn. The school would sell them on at double that to make rosehip syrup. I collected bags of the things!
lovely work, Pat! xx
Pat, this is so pretty. It reminds me of the wild roses in Wisconsin.
This rose is beautiful and I love the background you put with it- nice work as usual, Pat!Sheryl
Very sweet, Pat.
An unusual choice for 'E' Pat. Lovely.
Thanks, everyone - nice to come home to such lovely comments! I put some of the same colours in the background to give a hint of more of the same a little way away.My art tutor called them dog roses too, Frank. I wonder if he collected the hips also? I remember as a youngster being given rosehip syrup to build up my immunity!
What pretty flowers they are. Such a lovely shade I can just imagine how wonderful their scent must be
This is so soft and delicate. Delightful! Your background is perfect for this painting.
Thanks Dora xxThanks Ann - funnily enough the scent is not in the flower, but on the leaves! Francesco - well done to you! Can you keep that up throughout the alphabet? :)Christiane, thank you. I love the delicate-ness of it too :) xx
This E is so charming, a beautiful painting... "rosa canina" is the name in italian, but Eglantine is better! xoxo
So pretty.Funny but I first read "Elegant"...It is that in this painting too!Well done, Pat!
Cristina, that's what some people recognise it here as - rosa canina - dog rose. I prefer Eglantine too :)Thanks Ann, glad you like it! xx
