Intimacy, Curves, Rhythm and Movement - The Rose

The Rose
Acrylic on watercolour paper
7.5 by 5.5 inches (19.13 by 14.03 cm)
including .5 inch border (1.33 cm)










I decided to crop the flower’s image and bring it closer to viewers thus reaching into our space. This creates intimacy. The lyrical, rhythmic curves of the petals give the painting and flower a sense of motion and life. I used contrasting (complementary) colors, red and green. Each color enhances its opposite color. I wanted to put more space between the flower and green background so I painted over the background with a blue white. This would push the background further into space.
