The Shadow of your Love

Shadows.. I always think they make a painting.
So when I started this one, I decided to paint the shadows first.
When they were done, I loved it so much, its staying that way.
Here it is, painted on Arches 140 Rough , 15" x 11"

  8. Nice. I like the monochrome effect, works really well, emphasising the structural aspect of the rose.

  18. Thanks everyone!

    I was originally intending to overlay a pale pink, but when I stood back after the shadows, I fell in love with it as it is. So lovely to know you all think the same :) xx
