    Been meaning to do this one for quite a while but had to wait until I had a frame large enough to put it in, then forgot to take a photo before I framed it, so it is a bit lighter than the actual one. I believe @visualrealm did this one a while ago. We now have 4 of my rose paintings hanging in part of our lounge and my wife wants more for the 'Rose Room'.

    I had a few trial runs with the rose to get the colour I wanted finally settling on a mix of 4 Scarlet, 2 Orange and 1 Magenta, underpainted with black. The 'wood' , stem and leaves are done with a mix of Illustration Black and Cerulean blue.

    Size is A2, Createx Illustration paint, H&S Ultra and H&S Infinity CR+

    Great attention to the details, and obviously the RED is stunning, and putting lots of flower’s smell to that art ;)

    Interesting to read your note “underpainted with black”. Does this explain the brilliance of the rose petals?

    Looks great, I've never painted a rose. Maybe I will try one in the future.

    I had a number of practice runs with this, most times doing an underpainting in either black (1 Black, 4 Transparent base, giving a controllable grey), sepia, or burnt Umber. I also tried it with mixing the lights and darks and painting them as I saw them - that didn't work for me. The brightest parts of the rose have very little grey under them, just a lot of the red mix until it was fully saturated. I then went over the deepest shadows with a darker black to finish.
