waterhouse pre-raphaelite art reproduction painting for sale
Acrylic on canvas, 16x12"

The painting is on a stretched canvas, painted round the sides, with string on the back, so it is ready to hang as it is or can be framed if you prefer.

I like the tranquility of the scene in the original pre-raphaelite painting by Waterhouse and the thought that the woman has found time to relax and appreciate nature's rose. I was going to paint a copy in the same colours as the original, but having started it in monochrome, I quite liked it the way it was. I just added a hint of colour in places in pink and dark green.
