Red Garden Roses

This is for Rookie Painter May 2012 challenge. It's oil on 10x12 canvas panel.

The bright colored roses in this reference photo (ref) made it a very appealing challenge to do. It's basically a study of different shades and values of red, for which I used mainly vermilion, cadmium red neutral, magenta, rose red, Gamblin's radiant magenta, cadmium yellow, with lemon yellow for high lights and burnt sienna and ultramarine violet for shadows.


  1. pleasant choice of colors and very nicely painted, the result is perfect ! congrats !

  2. Hello Rebecca:) This is amazing! Especially the highlights and the beautiful reds. Very beautiful. Great job done!
