The common Dog rose.It grows across Europe in hedgerows, scrub, and woods.
It flowers between June and July, and makes rose hips untill the Autumn.
I love the pink petals with the white, and yellow styles and lime green centre.
I quickly painted this over two hours from a photo and a quick sketch drawing.
I like to make paintings have a feel of the flower, the essence, not always a biologically correct drawing.Thats why i have a camera and a garden blog.
The painting captures the moment I think quiter well :)
