Rose by Janet Chui

by Janet Chui

Prompt: C R I M S O N
prompted by: Lindsay Nucera, during Sketch Fest #26 (July, 2012)

This artist has posted at least one finished version of this piece!

I had a lot of rose madder pigment to use up on my palette--not crimson, but close enough? Stopped when I ran out of the colour! Purchase is for the FINISHED piece, which won't be too different from this scan as I don't want it overworked, just to darken the hair and fill in details of her fingers, face, and the rose petals. Since this Sketch Fest is in my birthday month, all sketches will be $35. (No prizes awarded for guessing how old I am!) Purchase link available on the COMPLETED PAINTING.


Lindsay Nucera says: Janet ~ thank you so much for choosing one of my prompts. I am honored. You interpreted CRIMSON in a unique and beautiful way. I can't wait to see the finished piece. Will you be posting that here when it is complete? If not, please ask Ellen how to get in touch with me. ~ Thank you again. ~ .xox. ~ Reply?

     Janet Chui replied to this: Hi Lindsay! I will be scanning it again and posting the finished piece, just after this weekend! :)
