An original botanical watercolour of photorealistic style.
Rosa Eglantine was painted from photographs taken in my own garden. This is a beautiful rose which I have been looking forward to painting and it looked truly spectacular in May due to a lovely warm spring. I have enlarged the painting to one and a half times the size which I think helps add impact. 50 hours of painting time has gone into this painting which was completed this year.
This painting won Best Professional Artist category for flowers and gardens in this years SAA Artist of the Year competition.
