This is a fantastic Rose Painting Lesson – available as Watercolor DVD and as online painting video.  This lesson isn’t only focused on how to paint a white rose. All my Watercolor Painting Instructions give you indepth lessons and easy-to-follow-instruction. This Watercolor lesson  gives you all the needed knowledge how to create a complete and complex painting:

I start with the main subject: The White Rose. I show you how to build the form of the rose with layers of colours: Starting with underwashes and then building up the colours; how to make the rose glowing, how to add dancing shadows, how to paint the illusion of reality.

Then I start with the first washes on the leaves and the stems and then I will show you how to paint the background. Each step is explained and this are all easy to follow instructions.

You will learn how to paint the colour white, you will learn how to integrate the rose into the background, how to put it all together, you will learn more about the all important edges, warm and cool colour temperature and so much more.

Learn how to make it a whole! We don’t want to have puzzles, we want to have paintings which speak to our viewers. Learn how to put all this different areas together to create a complete painting.

I share everything I know about how to paint with watercolors in this Watercolor Painting DVD.

  • how to use colour temperature
  • how and where to use the variety of different edges (soft edges, lost edges and hard edges)
  • how to create a dark background so that the rose “pops”
  • how to use light, midtones and darks
  • how to create the three dimensional and realistic looking rose
  • how to create colour harmony in your painting
  • where to use underwashes so that the painting glows
  • how to create cast shadows and darks at the basic of a rose petal
  • how to integrate the rose & leaves into the background – putting it all together and of course
  • how to paint the colour white.

You can follow each step very easily. Doris holds nothing back and she explains what she does and why in an easy and understandable way.
