Single Rose Bloom In Gothic – Featured Art Print

I wanted to display another new addition to my Floral/Still Life Gallery that also came from the Arizona Territorial Rose Garden Photo Shoot I posted about in November from Prescott, Arizona. With this print I created the single rose bud using a gothic oil technique that creates an old world look with the earthen color tones. The look is totally different than the watercolor rose I posted last week, but each brings its own unique look between the two totally different techniques.  Thoughts?

Peach Rose – Featured Art Print

My featured Art Print this week is a simple color photograph of a rose. I call it “Peach Rose’ as it reminds me of the coloring of a large fresh peach. I will be adding this to my Color Photography Gallery.

Maybe it seems a little weird that I’m showcasing a rose bloom early in December, but it is a recent photograph I thought turned out beautifully. I took this shot during the Thanksgiving weekend while we were staying in Los Angeles. The home we were staying in has numerous flower gardens around the property and I couldn’t resist some macro shots.

What drew me into this bloom was the lighting and coloring. The sun was shining on the rose bloom from an angle and the lighting behind the bloom was subdued with subtle shadows. The color reminded me of the large peaches we use to grow when we lived in Denver. We had an incredible peach tree just off the back deck and the coloring on those peaches as they ripened was similar to this bloom.

“Peach Rose” is a celebration of simplicity, color and nature’s beauty. Thoughts?

 

I invite you to come into the gallery to view the addition of new art prints to the collection in Color Photography.

White Rose

In keeping with the theme of the week – floral – I wanted to share another rose print that I took into a totally different direction than my last one. This one is a white rose bloom (same location that the red rose was taken – a public garden in Portland, Oregon). Again, the original photograph stands on its own as I have it listed as an art print in my Color Photography Gallery. I wanted to add a different dimension, so I did the white rose bloom as a watercolor drawing. The drawing adds an abstract look suggesting the rose shape and the watercolor painting softens the final piece. Below is the original version…

…and this is the watercolor version:

The Gothic Rose

One of the newest art prints that I have added to my Foral/Still Life Gallery is a rose done in a gothic oil style painting. I was actually surprised at the final result. I like the gothic oil style for the earth tone colors and the strong brush strokes. This style of art works in numerous decors. All of that said, I was curious on how a rose would look. We typically use this colorful flower in either photographs or watercolors to keep the vibrancy of the colors forefront. So, let’s look at the original picture. Onto itself, the original photograph is a beautiful capture of a red rose. Absolutely nothing wrong with it. (To give credit where credit is due, the rose is not home grown….I took the picture at a public garden in Portland, Oregon.)

So, from that to this. It creates a totally different look, a classic and simple elegance in deep earthen tones.
