Hi guys! I wanted to show you how to use watercolors to paint a rose. I use the kind in tubes because I like it better. You could use the regular kind, but I strongly recommend using these.
Start by sketching your image
Wet your brush
Block in your rose
Spread it out
Use your dotting/embossing tool in purple watercolor. Don't dilute with water
This is the purple
Add purple along the side
This is outlined, needs blending
Blend using brush with water
Yikes! It's ok, lots of water to blend this, use less than I did.
Blot with a tissue
Use the pink to shade, do not dilute, use a medium-wet brush
Do this at the petals, only at the bases
Make this darker, it should look folded over
Use more where it curves in
Using water to make this lighter
Making the perfect green -Green, a bit of purple&yellow.
Blocking in, use more water than I did
Dotting/embossing tool- go around the edges, no water.
Add green to your yellow
Highlight with no water
Use water to blend
Hope I helped! If you have any questions just leave me a comment!
