About This Class

Explore how professional watercolor artist and teacher Louise De Masi brings her beautiful watercolors to life. In this 58 minute tutorial Louise will guide you step by step through the painting of a gorgeous detailed yellow rose in watercolor. 

The line drawing of the rose and also the reference photo has been provided for you to download so that you can paint along with her. You can find them if you click on the 'Your Project' tab above. She will share tips such as the way she loads her brush with paint, how she transfers the drawing onto the watercolor paper, and how to correct some common errors. You will follow along as she paints wet on wet and wet on dry and you will watch the rose come to life in this glorious medium. This tutorial is suitable for intermediate students who have some knowledge of watercolor but beginners will also find it useful.

You can follow Louise's work on her website, in her Etsy store and on Instagram.

This is what you will be painting.
