Painting these roses was a joy

Just painted these roses in acrylic - about 30x40 cm. We had them in a vase last August in our living room. I used one of the photos I took then as reference for this painting. Have a lovely weekend.

Colors of autumn

Last Saturday, while I was walking back to our house from the supermarket, I shortly stopped under a tree and enjoyed looking at the amazing colors of the leaves on the ground. I picked up one and brought it with me. Later in the day, I decided to sketch it but unfortunately I was not able to get the beautiful autumn colors of the leaf. Here I posted what I had done.

Watercolor sketch of two roses

I am still tired from our vacation in East Germany. We were in Weimar, Leipzig, Dresden and again in Berlin. We did a lot of walking to see the many great places in these beautiful cities. I also learned a lot of the cities' famous histories.

Today, I sketched quickly these roses in watercolor. I don't have plenty of time yet to paint big painting that's why for now I love doing these kind of loose watercolor sketches.
