9" x 5" ~ Watercolor on Paper
This is one of those single Roses, with less petals then the doubles. So I chose to go with a not so busy background, but still intense to compliment the Rose. If I went to busy it would overwhelm, and we don't want to do that. The background is cobalt and viridian to give a kind of emerald green color in spots and cobalt in other spots. The blue/greens complimented my "Orange center" quite nicely! Enjoy.
