Here is the finished painting of the pink rose from the February Challenge. It is from a photograph that Callie took.

It was done on a 9x12 canvas board with a black gesso background. The rose was done with cad red medium and zinc white to get the pink and then burnt sienna for the darker areas. Cobalt blue and cad yellow medium were used for the other flowers and cad red added to make the purples and oranges. The grays were made from all of these colors combined at different proportions.

I hope you'll splurge on a really nice frame for this, Judy!
This is excellent

I make all my own frames including milling the wood so I have some special ideas for it.

I agree your painting deserves a special frame. It's gorgeous. Smile

Thank you both. I will post it once I decide on how I'll frame it. I have some thoughts in mind.

Judy, I don't know if you saw this link but it's about sites where you can test frames for your painting online: http://watersolubleoils.forumotion.com/going-digital-f15/framing-your-painting-on-the-web-t169.htm

Thanks Janet,

With making frames for so many years, I have many woods and textures available to actually place the paintign right into a test frame. In looking at what I have, I don't have the right size, but I have a lot of molding I have milled to make one once I decide on what I like best.
