Rose hips

When I go for a walk, I always bring with me a camera so that if I see something worth painting I can immediately take pictures. A week ago while we were walking and passing in one of the streets where we live, I saw these rose hips and the next thing I did was to click my camera. I used one of the photographs as reference for this painting.

This painting is my third try on Fabriano Artistico white watercolor paper. I tried to be loose here and without pencil sketch. I am beginning to like the paper, and I am planning to buy more loose sheets for future use.
I'm doing these try-outs because I'm looking for another paper which I can alternate with what I am using at the moment.


  1. Cora , this is the way a watercolor should be... (If there is a should be) lol!.
    I've tried Fabriano Artistico in single sheets, but was not too happy with it..
    Also, thank you so much for your lovely comment on my post with the hawk.

  2. Cora - these are so lovely. I am so glad you are liking the paper. You have captured these colors so well. Have a beautiful day.

  3. Cora,
    I love your rose hips...You have captured it so well..
    I see a lot of these lately on my rose bushes...

  4. Complimenti Cora, molto belle le tue "rose hips". Abbraccio.

  5. Thank you everybody for coming by and for your beautiful comments.
