White Roses Oil Painting – Impressionist Botanical Floral

July 21st, 2011


White Roses (study)
6 x 8 inches
oil on plein air panel

Iceberg roses are among the most popular white rose varieties in California (perhaps in other US states, too.) These perennial plants have a carefree look about them, somewhat different from the formality of other hybrid tea roses. I decided to paint this group in a casual impressionist style, loosely, as though they were being tousled by the wind.

  4. As a fellow Californian, and owner of many iceberg roses, I had to comment on your lovely piece. You’re so right, they do seem carefree, compared to the more formal types of roses. I’m happy to have come across your work via Illustration Friday!

  5. Lovely study – loose, as you said, and the colours leave the impression that the roses have an inner glow.
