My latest addition to the 50 Watercolor Flowers project is the Wild Rose painting. I love these simple and delicate roses, they usually bloom in June. I actually prefer them over the cultivated varieties you find these days. I tend to prefer the old english roses, climbing roses and of course the wild roses.
I am using this illustration on my wedding invitations, along with some dusty miller, and eucalyptus which I still need to paint. I sure hope my wedding can still happen this year! It's hard to say with COVID 19 when we will all be able to go back to normal and socialize, it would be hard to have a wedding with no people and no food. So I have prepared myself to have to postpone it if need be, at least I will have my lovely invitations ready. Worse things are happening in the world right now. So for now I will focus on creativity and the beauty of nature.
