A Rose is a Rose
Oh the beauty of a rose's spiral! Drawing us deep into its center desperately wanting to inhale its essence & experience the very heart of it.
Done with a watercolor painting process referred to as "wet-on-wet". The paint is applied onto a wet canvas allowing magical things to happen as they mix & mingle in unexpected ways. Once dry, the painting is then enhanced with the liveliness of oil pastels to add additional texture & spontaneity.
A heavily textured layer of encaustic medium is then applied over the painting to protect it, and also to enhance its sculptural qualities. I encourage you to look at the close ups provided to get a better idea of how much additional beauty the encaustic wax adds to the piece.
An original painting created using high quality, artist grade encaustic, watercolor paints & oil pastels, on 140 lb. premium Arches watercolor 100% cotton fiber paper.
Dimensions: 12" x 16"
Already mounted on a gorgeous 1.5" deep cradled wood panel giving it a contemporary look - no framing is necessary. Ready to hang on your wall!
The scale depicted in the photos is approximate, and should not be used to determine how the painting will look in your personal space.
