Rose Garden 1

"Rose Garden 1" (pastel, 8x6 inches)  click here to bid 

Here's the first of two plein air paintings from the Abuquerque Botanical Gardens. I and two new friends Julia Patterson and Barbara Miller took a drive out there last Thursday morning. What a gorgeous place that is! Very hard to do it justice.  (And that darned sun keeps moving all the time!)
This is done on watercolor paper primed with dark blue Art Spectrum pastel primer.

I took artist's license to remove the trees behind the wall...
