"Red, Red Rose" by Carol Thompson

Red, Red Rose

"A red, red rose blooms in my garden attracting butterflies, humming birds, and compliments."

Artist comment:  "There are, of course, many shades and hues of the 'color' red.  Pick a red flower and try to describe it!  In this composition of three blooms (and a bud), I layered a 'carmine' red with more layers for the shadow areas.  The background was washed onto Arches 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper, leaving it white where the flowers and leaves were sketched.  After completing the leaves, I carefully rendered the blooms."
