Blue Girl

I have been inspired by one of the roses in my garden, Blue Girl. It is a very pretty rose, and very finiky. I was challenged to capture the cool toned beauty of this flower.

I had been given a great gift from an artist friend of mine, a book called "Making Color Sing" by Jeanne Dobie. It is a great book and I reccomend it, even to those who are relatively versed in color composition and basic color schemes. I used some of the methods described in this book for my new painting and I am very pleased with the results!
