Easy Roses For Beginners
Easy Floral With Flat Washes of Color
The beautiful glow of flowers brings joy and happiness to every corner. In this lesson, capturing that glow is as easy with step by step flat washes for the leaves and flat washes plus feathering for a beautiful old fashioned rose.
A wet on wet background is demonstrated, but feel free to leave your background white instead - you'll still have a beautiful painting.
Plus, these roses are easy to arrange into many different compositions, so you could pick and choose the parts you like to create your own unique original.
Included is the reference photo, plus an extra reference photo, the outline page, and written step by step instructions. Also included are two more rose paintings with baby bunnies that you can download, trace and also paint.
Because green is a color many people have problems with, I've included information on easy ways to mix and work with green in a fun video.

Hi, I'm Deb Watson.
My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.
I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.
I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!
Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.

These white roses are very similar to the pink ones and beautiful in their own way. (From Chanticleer Garden In southeastern Pennsylvania.)
