End of summer rose from our balcony

I managed to paint this 6x6 inches rose - in watercolor - while I was busy practicing in oil paints. This rose was one of the last summer roses from our plant in our balcomy. I hope all of you will have a good and safe weekend.

Oil painting study

Two weeks ago, I joined with other members of our painting club to try oil paints for the first time. With my goal of just knowing how oil paints work, I chose a simple image to paint. So, the above painting is my very first oil painting. In the original, the small trees are much darker, which is supposed to be so as in the reference image I used. I don't know why they are much lighter in this photograph. Right now I am busy  with my second oil painting study - just to be more familiar with using the paints.
