The Alpine Sunset is a type of hybrid tea rose with rounded, double petals and light peach / yellow or apricot colour flowers. It is also known to be a very fragrant rose. It generally blooms in Spring time, though I could not find a reference as to why it is named Alpine, as it does not really grow in Alpine areas. The colours of the petals I suppose resemble a sunset.
My painting of the Alpine Sunset is one of my earlier paintings. It sold a long time ago but is available as a print by clicking on the above image. I think with this one I was trying to experiment with using many colours to try to depict the shade and tone of the petals. Though the overall flower is supposed to have an apricot or peach tone, I've actually used a limited amount of orange and yellow as base colours. I wasn't all that happy with this one when I first painted it, but looking back, I can appreciate the process and what I was trying to achieve.
