This 11 x 14 inch gallery wrapped canvas, which is 1.5 inches wrapped on
each edge, needs no frame, and can be hanged as is. This original Red Rose Painting
is an abstract rose painting with a warm red to orange colored rose that incorporates many
cool tones (blues, greens, purples, and turquoise) as major highlights
and accents. Yellow is also used on the abstract rose painting at certain points for a few warm
accents on the flower. The juxtaposition of the warm and cool tones
on the abstract rose painting brings out the
depth of the full rose more than would have a few warm highlights
I first colored the red rose painting fully in reds, oranges, yellows, and white. After the red rose painting was fully painted in those colors, I painted back over the rose with blue, turquoise, purple, green, more yellow, and touches of white to form the abstract rose painting. I added 3 dew drops for accents.
The canvas of the abstract rose painting has been sprayed with clear acrylic gloss varnish to keep the colors bright, and has been signed by the artist. This painting ships bubblewrapped flat in a no-bend cardboard box.
