Rookiepainter challenge 37

Arches, 30 x 23 cm
This was my third and relatively successful attempt at the Rookiepainter challenge this month. I wanted to paint this loosely, but I kept covering spots, that needed to remain white, causing ugly backruns or simply creating mud.
I also had another reason to paint a rose today, for another Rose, very dear to me, on her birthday. Let there be roses!

Blaga, this is really truly lovely. My mother loved roses and had a huge garden full of them when I was growing up. You are well beyond Rookie!

Really beautiful, Blaga! It is a difficult one, I know what you mean by covering whites, I am struggling with my version. Happy birthday to Rose!

Hello Blaga:) Your rose is beatiful. The whites in it were very difficult, I struggled on them too. Your background is lovely soft!
Btw: you've got a lot of words underlined in your comments (I don't know if you see them too). If you push them you will be redirected to an commercial site. Do you have a virus in you computer?

Blaga said...

Lynn, you are so kind! Well, I may not be a rookie any more but it did take me three attempts to get here :) I love roses too and have quite a few in my little yard.

Thank you, Maria!

Thank you, Judy! I'm sure you'll produce a simple and elegant version, as you always do. And Rose does thank you for the wishes!

Thank you so much, Rita! I'm so glad you like it! And Rose thanks you too!

Thank you, Renate!
I don't see anything unusual in any part of my blog. I tried multiple browsers and computers...

Grazie molto, Tito!

Vielen Dank, Janina!

Thank you very much, Jane!
