Whilst updating my prints shop I came across an old painting I hadn’t uploaded. A bit different from my usual stuff, but I learned a lot from painting it.

Original available to buy, please email anna@annagreaves.com for more information.

well, i have to say... every since i tried and failed and tried and failed and tried and failed to paint a rose, i have avoided the subject at all costs for years.... and honestly i am going to continue to avoid roses... you on the other hand should think about painting more of them.

Thank you :D They didn't come out as delicate as real rose petals, but the fleshiness of them was a deliberate mistake. There’s more meaning to this piece than most people see... at least to me there is.

i know exactly what you are saying... i am not surprised that this is more than a double portrait of some roses... fleshiness indeed. :)
