A red rose is a rose

A Rose is a rose

I painted this rose from a photograph which I took awhile back, it came out quite nice. Actually I painted this in order to practice dry brushing technique. Every time I learn a new thing in art it becomes another tool I can use when facing different challenges or even to have more fun in my painting.

Oil on canvas, 18×24

Ps: I am not crazy about the red background… but what the hey!
