"Roses - chameleons" Painting Watercolor 28x38 Natalia Popova - Professional Artist 2020
Opening the rose season. In fact, in the Crimea, they have been blooming for a couple of weeks, and this unique giant rose has already been mercilessly eaten by beetles. It is more than 2 meters in height, and the trunks are like young birch trees. Rose tree. Today I cut off the last buds and they are already ugly gnawed by bronzes and "alyonkas". But this year I managed to stock up on photos and grab a little from nature. This rose is the most picturesque and interesting of all that I have seen. It’s a pity that I don’t know the name of the variety - I stole a branch on the street. But for some reason it seems to me that the variety is very old. A huge disheveled flower opens from a small angular bud - each is unique in shape and curls inside. The bud is bright orange-crimson, as it opens, it turns into a creamy coral, then into a pale pink-lilac with tightly wrapped petals in the corners. Does anyone know what variety this is?
Thank you for your attention, interest and time.
