Rose Paintings 2016

┬áThe Rose is a timeless symbol of love and tolerance, with the paintings created here exploring the subtle tones and unique character of different specialist roses found in the Rose Garden in Regents Park London. The luminosity and vibrancy of colour is breathtaking, each with their own unique perfume, and portrayed using high quality pigments with the very gradual building up of layers of oil paint with final glazing. The images above are of the famous English Roses ‘Darcy Bussell’ and ‘Fragrant Dream’.
