Sketch for a Painting of a Rose

rose1

I loved the Botanical Gardens so much on my recent trip to Australia and New Zealand that I’m eager to paint some of my favorite flowers.  Here is a pencil sketch of a rose for a new painting.  I’m enjoying the idea of showing the flower up close and allowing some of the petals go beyond the picture plane creating some interesting negative space.

More tomorrow,

Gail Niebrugge, flower artist
