16.9.2015 Rose

Watercolor, 24x30 cm
Reference photo
Last month, I had some moments of feeling like all I wanted was to paint roses. Perhaps that was because we have a rose plant that gives us so much enjoyment, for it continues to bloom even until now. In total I painted four rose paintings including this one above. If we did not go on holiday I could have painted more. I photographed this rose from Intratuin garden center here in my city.


  1. This is an extremely lovely rose, really love the delicate color ! Do you know the name of this rose, and does it have a scent ? In a few months I move and will start a new garden from scratch , and I am looking for roses that just never stop flowering :-)

    1. Hi Jane,
      I don't know the name of the rose, but I will post next to the painting the reference photo I used so that you will have a better picture of how the rose looks like. Thank you for your comments.

    2. Your paintings has such beautiful transitions of colors. Watercolor at its best!
      I understand wanting to paint a series of roses. When I find something I want to paint I feel the same way.

  2. Prachtige roos Cora !
    nog een fijn weekend,
