This is my first ArtRage painting to share here! I am still learning the software, and am getting used to the transition from natural media to digital. Now that I'm finally getting the hang of it, this has opened up a whole new world of art for me. I'm so excited! This was done with an oil brush and palette knife, using a Wacom tablet (and ArtRage Studio Pro). I hope that this rose brightens someone else's day as much as it did mine! Enjoy! :)

Thanks for the kind comments! I had a lot of fun creating this piece and I'm glad that it's just as fun to look at as it was to paint. :p

This painting is evidently just perfect! Congrats!
Did You try also some alternative beckground, to see how they possibly change appearance and mood of this amazing painting?

Thanks for the feedback! Caesar, I haven't tried another background yet, but I agree that an interesting background would indeed add something to the painting. It seems kind of stark and empty with the plain white background. I think I might experiment with some different backgrounds and see what I can come up with. :D

So beautiful and yet so delicate, I think I can smell it.

A perfect example of the beautiful Rose fantastic.:):)
Perhaps some subtle colour for the background.

I think you have shown an eye for beautiful lines. it does have an almost sculptural look. great job on the lines of the petals enfolded. the only thing that could make it even more beautiful is a bit more variation in hues within the red. great first offering.
