About this artwork

Blushing pink roses unfurl amongst young delicate buds. Artist Hilary Gomes captured the floral display as they were greeted by the morning light. She painted the scene from the Filoli Gardens at the Filoli Historic House and Garden in California. Hilary starts her process with a raw umber underpainting on textured linen that adds a touch of character to the piece. She then paints with an indirect oil painting method using a naturalistic palette. The painting symbolizes the start of love.
