The Rose 

Oil on Canvas 
Photograph reference was an ad from the Internet

Since I painted the peony that was so very pink I've been thinking about what a red rose would look like painted large that way. I thought the rose would be so much darker red, but I do like the more orange pieces and the alizarin crimson in the dark places. I was trying very hard to not make it pink in any way.
