Rose in Movement
Acrylic on wrapped canvas
on wood stretcher bars,
25.5 by 30.6 by 1.9 cm, 10 by 12 by 0.75 inches,
I was attracted to the lyrical movement of the flower’s petals. It was hard to make cast shadows from one petal onto other petals; form shadows on concave petals, and form shadows on convex petals. There was no cast shadow from the rose onto the ground. It was difficult for me to capture the light and darks of this image but with help from friends, I hope I was successful in achieving that goal.
