Orange Roses in the Garden

Oil on canvas on panel, 6 x 6 in. -- 

I saw these roses in the public garden in our neighborhood. I brought all my gear to paint on site, but ended up taking photos of reference. It was so hot, and there was hardly any shade to set up my easel around the roses. I had fun playing with different tone of yellow and red to create the mood in this piece.
