Color Inspiration - Red Rose Glow

My husband put in a rose garden last spring and I got to help him choose the varieties. How could I resist this lipstick red with it's inner glow of orange, especially encrusted with water jewels?

This Analogous color scheme glows with its gradual transition of color and is set off by a splash of complementary. I used this palette to paint a bouquet of poppies.


  1. Have been wondering if you create these colour swatches?

    1. Hi Joyce,
      Yes, I do create the swatches, so much fun because there are usually so many colors going on and I have to pick and choose and play with proportions.
