When the Sun Shines

When the Sun Shines
Unframed size 56cm x 43cm

Who doesn't feel good when the sun shines. Today I painted roses using the very first bloom to appear in our garden. This particular bush rose had been out shadowed in the garden by a weeping tree and some lavender so at the start of winter my husband moved it to an open position in the rose bed. How happy it must have been to get some sun as it showed the rest of the roses how beautiful it can be as soon as the Spring sun arrived.
I enjoyed continuing experimenting with my new colours from Da Vinci and beside the yellows I have already tried this painting included Fire Ball and Kathmandu Alizarin - such exciting pigments and such fantastic names.
