Yellow Roses on a Path

90cm x 70cm / 35in x 28in
Oil on Linen
The fall rose bush always has a less luxuriant foliage allowing the spiked branches to show through, which provided sharp diagonals to the composition. New leaf growth on the right of the painting, the last growth of the season, is shown in its usual red-purplish tone. The pavement stones in the path gave an additional linear quality to the piece, with the top third of the painting devoted to fully opened and other fading yellow roses.
