Friendship Rose - Watercolor

"Friendship Rose"
8" x 5" ~ Watercolor on Paper


Lots of fun doing the wet-in-wet on this piece, especially on the leaves. They are really wavy and the wet-in-wet worked well to achieve that effect. Let the background go darkest behind the most important part, the rose itself. Then a gradation to a lighter color behind the leaves. Very happy with the result....:-)
