Watercolor Rosewreath with Esther

Watercolor Rosewreath with Esther - student project

I am loving making these C-stroke roses!  I may just paint them on EVERYTHING !!!  I need more practice, but these are such a joy to paint, I don't mind.  I love how Esther breaks it down to the 3 C-stroke rose and the three layers of leaves, shadow leaves and fillers.  It all adds up to BEAUTIFUL!  I really don't have all the wonderful colors I need, but I'll be adding to my palette.  For now I mixed Opera Rose and Orange to get these coral and pink roses.
