Beautiful roses in a common jam... by Netta Pickering

Beautiful roses in a common jam jar!

Roses from my yard in N. Georgia. Mixed Media. Soluble oils and watercolor pencil, on Canson Watercolor paper, 140lb.
I love this Netta - your roses are truly lovely , especially it reminds me how my nan used to pick roses from her garden and sometimes, when she had too many for the vase, the extras went in a jam jar on the kitchen windowsill ! hugs x Leonora

Lovely work, Netta! I do like the two contrasting colours of the roses, and the grill really sets it all off

Do you paint ever in watercolours as well as acrylic , oils. If so what is your favorite medium to paint in ?
I like it, Michelle and like you am how just getting into watercolours ( instead of pastels). I find that it is difficult to get strong colours and contrasts.... view answer
