I created this video tutorial on how to hand paint watercolor roses and leaves using my phone.
Roses are so lovely to paint in watercolor. This short tutorial of very simple roses a beginner can paint. Lay your opaque color then blend in a watered down brush. Adding new colors to center of roses add unknown magical elements to your art.
Remember, paint from your heart. Don’t try to replicate another artist’s style. You have your very own style. This is what will make your art one-of-a-kind. Painting with passion is true art. Have fun! Paint some roses today then tag me #MospensTutorial! I can’t wait to see what you create.
One of the reasons I love painting with watercolor paint… Less Is More. You start with a soft wash of watercolor paint then add a bit more later if you wish. The results vary and that is the most fun part.
Paint: Winsor and Newton
Paper: Canson Paper cold press 9″ x 12″ block
Brush: Princeton Artist Brush
Watercolor paint dries sometimes darker than what you see when wet and sometimes dries lighter depending on the color. The more practice you get the more you will learn how each color dries. Remember, less is more. Paint in soft light layers. Lightest paint color to darkest.
This is the final painting. Notice how different the colors look when dry. Keep this in mind when mixing your paint.
