Once In A Blue Moon-Yellow Rose Watercolor

I have not been spending much time on this lately but today I took the time to darken a few areas and actually if I would spend just a couple more hours I think I could be done. I am done for the most part with everything but the large rose...and that has the center to go in yet and to tune up some edges. The blue on the moon seems to be showing up a little bluer than it is but I have to look at that and see if I might want to actually do that to the painting...we will see! So hopefully soon I will be able to show you the finished piece. Thank you for being patient!

Hi Janie. I had to come to your blog to see your rose. Wow, it is beautiful and the idea of having it shown at night with the moon is brilliant! Love the title too. I don't see a couple of hours work in it. I think that the time remaining is alot less.

This is superb...the stem and leaves are beautifully modelled, and I am sure the rose will be too once you have finished.
