Rose Hips - 2 more, ACEO size
Being inspired by the rose hips I painted for the previous WDE, I wanted to explore more this subject. I had some my own photos, taken few years ago on a rainy autumn day. These are from a different species, and they have rather round shapes with some very long and curly, dry ends. I liked the shapes, but wanted to change the mood to a sunny day. After making a pencil sketch, I decided I would like to experiment a bit with the colors and composition in two small paintings, ACEO size, to decide how the final painting should go. These are both done with W&N and Daniel Smith watercolors on Waterford 140 lb R paper.
