More about this course

A lot of beginner watercolor enthusiasts struggle with painting roses. In this class, I will show you how you can easily paint loose watercolor roses using three different brushes:

  • Round Brush
  • Striper Brush
  • Angle Shader

You can paint these roses in under 15 minutes, so this is perfect even for those who have very busy schedules. If you don't have exactly the same brushes as I used in this class, that's alright. You can use a quill brush instead of a round brush; a dagger brush or triangle brush if you don't have the striper brush; and a flat brush could also work well in place of an angled brush.

Don't hesitate to ask me questions! I am here to help you in your art journey :)

The course project

Choose at least one of the techniques in this class and paint your own loose watercolor rose. Do not limit yourself to the number of roses that I have demonstrated, you can paint as many roses as you want. It is best to see your progress, too! So, after painting this the first time, you can practice and show us your other artworks. You will be amazed at how you can quickly improve painting watercolor roses!
