Another "warm-up" painting... I used various paint applications: direct painting, a rub-out technique, glazing and I also scumbled across the surface to obtain the haziness in the background. I enjoy vibrant colors but am working on variations in color temperature to obtain depth. This is a certain variation of yellow rose on view at the Rose Gardens in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco.
