yellow rose from Pontigny

This is the WIP rose I posted a week ago. I thought of using dark background for this but could not decide what color to use. In the end, I came up with this light wash combining cobalt and ultramarine blues. I noticed that the leaf could have been a bit darker. This is in watercolor, size 30x40 cm.


  1. Hi Cora, surely better with a dark background (perhaps even more dark). Have a nice week end! Ciao.

  2. Cora, I think you are the queen of roses! Every petal is so well defined and well executed and this one is really lovely. So delicate and perfect just the way it is. xx

  3. Thank you Tito and Jane for your wonderful comments.
