Old door with roses


Writing this on February 14th and I am so cold and can't wait for some warm sunshine! Bulbs are poking up in the garden, but they've had a quick look around and have decided not to bother and are keeping a very low profile.

I painted this door as I liked the cast shadows from the overhanging rambling rose. My roses have ended up a little dull (I masked them out but I needed to leave more unpainted white paper) but I like the sense of depth that the shadows create.
