Rainy roses

Roses painting by Gregory Avoyan

Made the study of roses this Saturday. The rain fell all day so I decided not to travel around but to paint in the backyard instead. I used the huge umbrella which covered me and my painting stuff from the falling water, and when I have been thinking if I should finish this already or paint more suddenly strong wind threw my field easel to the ground. Such a grand finale! So I finished and went picking up scattered paint tubes and brushes. 

This is a good example that not all colors may be achieved through paint mixing and you should have more different paints, especially for saturated stuff like flowers. Cause the color of roses on the picture is not exactly what it was in reality.
