First Cut Rose, gold gel pen and watercolor

First Cut Rose, gold gel pen and watercolor

This was the first rose I cut from my rose bushes this year which led to the first cut on my hands from the rose thorns (likely not the last). And it was the first sketch I did of the first rose.  My intention was get the essence of the delicate rose with as few lines and as few washes as possible. I drew it with a gold gel pen, painted directly in one layer and stopped.

Happy!

  7. Now that is a girly-girl drawing! It would look beautiful on a tote-bag or a tee shirt. Very feminine and still a bit whimsical.
