Roses and lace, a combination that has always captured one's heart be it when choosing china, clothes, furnishings and even wedding favours, gifts and 'hantarans'.
This plaque I painted recently was inspired from a friend who wanted me to design a long plaque with pink roses and lace.
The laces are from my earlier designs of teapots and vases on a shelf. The roses in this design are not the stroke and blend style. It is painted with shading and highlight all the way. And the rose petals are blooming irregularly, which I think makes it nice and natural. Again, I am happy with this piece. It is also up for sale on Ye Oliveblue Shoppe for those interested to order.
