Red Roses in a Vase

Red Roses in a Vase

$400.00

Size: 9 x 12 inches

This is a very special painting. I love painting flowers, and red roses have a special place in my heart. But the process to get from the beginning to the end is very different than my normal paintings. I took hardwood panel with gesso and then layered a red primer base. When that dried, I added adhesive and then gold leaf on top. Then, a good burnish later, I let the glue and the gold leaf cure for a week. I then sealed the whole panel and then prepped the gold leaf for oil paints with various varnishes. That's when the panel was ready for painting. 

I wanted the beauty of the gold leaf to enhance the beauty of the roses. The sheen comes through when the paint is thinner and adds a touch of mystery.
