How to make a rose bloom
My best-known rose paintings were done in graduate school and people have asked me to do a rose painting demo many times over the years. I start them at workshops and finish them at home or at other workshops. I think it is very important for artists to see the stages in making a painting. We can be in a hurry and want to make everything perfect all at once.
These pictures, showing three stages helps you see how to develop a painting start to finish. I cover pigments you should use and how to mix them and get started in my watercolor workshops.
