Yellow Rose With Morning Dew – 8×10 on canvas

Original acrylic painting on 8×10 canvas, hand painted by artist Emily Mottesheard.

This was painted as inspiration from the yellow roses in my mother’s garden, and how expertly they collect dew in the spring mornings. I happened to catch this particular bloom early in the morning just before the sun burned off the drops of dew from the petals. I had also just acquired a few new detail brushes and was very eager to test my mettle with recreating the flower in a realism style, down to the veins in the petals and the reflections off the water droplets.
