Project Description

Your class project for this tutorial is to paint this rose! See 'full description' below for details.

7b92f63c

I have included the line drawing for you to download so all you have to do is transfer it onto your watercolor paper and start painting with me. I have included the progress photos of my painting for you to download. By downloading them you can see what stage you should be up to by the end of each video.

Step 1: Download all of the class files.

Step 2 Transfer the drawing of the rose onto your watercolor paper.

Step 3: Start  painting with me in the 6th video 'Initial Washes.'

I would love to see how you are going with each stage. So I encourage you to share your own progress photos with me and other students in the class. Please don't be shy. We all have to start somewhere. With constant practice we get better and better. My painting has improved since I started painting with watercolor in 2011. If you would like to see some of my first attempts at painting in watercolor I wrote a blog post about my progression here. 

I would love to share your paintings on my website so if you would like to have the photo of your finished rose included in a blog post please add the hashtag #yellowrose in your title so that I know I can include it.

I am here to answer any questions you might have! 

Happy painting!
