A Magazine Basket

Posted by Lakshmi

I painted this basket some time ago.  The rich red colour of the roses against a stark white background sets it apart from the usual soft and pastel colours I normally use.

Every once in a while, when I'm tired of painting pale ones or when I'm unsure of what to paint, I'll take a good look at the blood red roses  and secretly wonder how on earth  I did it !. It actually makes me feel better and bolder, really.  Maybe it has something to do with the effect of certain colours on   our mind, like in colour therapy .

    I think your red roses are simply divine!

    Mine are sad wannabes. But I'm ever optimistic.

    Am linking to you because I need inspiration to persevere!

    You do amazing work!
