River Roses - red rose floral

River Roses                  9" x 7"            oil on linen
I wanted to have another chance to paint with all the wonderful red and  overlapping shapes of the roses from my last post. It started the same way, with a loose wash of red and blue.I sketched some, and worked just a bit larger in this painting. 
It was just as much fun the second time!
