Jewelry painting of a Christmas ball. It is a very effective technique of double-sided painting.
Inspiration: Pierre-Joseph Redouté (July 10, 1759 — June 19, 1840) was a French painter and botanist of Belgian origin, the Royal painter and lithographer, an artisan of Botanical illustration.
Double work is done: a metal substrate and a bright front side. Thanks to this contrast, the rose looks very unusual on the ball, and the decoration itself is beautiful from any side!
