Rosa 'Keano'

Rosa 'Keano'

2011


Watercolour on Fabriano Artistico extra white cotton rag 300 gsm

Artist's collection


This delightful rose was purchased in a bunch at South Kensington tube station one dark London evening from the Dutch flower seller.  

It is a florist's rose, and as such is of quite disciplined form, with a strong stem.  The lovely muted pink has a hint of lavender blue about it, and there is something of an old-fashioned sense about the colour.

Several of the petals have been touched by the green of the sepals.
