Rose Gardens

After practicing loose, freestyle watercolor roses for a couple of days, I had quite a “garden” of them to be made into greeting cards.

They are quite fun to paint, take shape quickly, and make an elegant presentation.

  1. That’s nicely done Carol. I gave up on this a while ago as I always get lost when drawing roses. I guess I could give it a try again. I particularly like the yellow pack.

  2. Yes, you should revisit it again. I also worked on them in starts and stops and finally go the hang of it. I’m glad you like them, especially the yellow roses πŸ™‚

  3. This is so funny because I tried painting this type of rose last night only it looked nothing like yours. Yours are actually beautiful. I think my paper was too wet and everything ran together. Great job Carol! πŸ™‚

  4. Thanks, Carol! I painted them on dry paper and followed each “petal” with a brush of just clean water to spread out where I wanted them too. Keep at it – they took a lot of practice for me πŸ™‚
