I began this painting as a challenge to myself & soon learned that painting a simple red rose on satin was more of a challenge than I thought. As I dissected this intricate flower, I saw a symphony of folds with petals continuously curving, bending & contorting, wrapping themselves around other petals curving, bending & contorting. But the real beauty lies in the nuances & color values so subtle, the human eye could easily miss the details of a simple rose on satin.
