This bouquet of cabbage roses were initially painted without me knowing what they were really called at the time, but they looked lovely to me and were a great challenge to paint. Apart from the intricacies, I wanted to see how well I could achieve contrast by using the same hue throughout the painting and still retain interesting detail.
It was brought to my attention by a lady that they looked like Austin Roses, so I looked them up and contacted the company who grows them to inquire further.
I was given various names by the florists of the flowers that had a similarity to the painted ones and thus, I fancied 'Jubilee Celebration' as a title. It sounded right, a glorious name.
I hope you like this painting and may you take pleasure in looking at it. Thank you for the interest.
