One Minute Watercolour Roses Video Tutorial
Painting One Minute Roses
These little roses are done freehand by applying little semi circles around a center point. Try to imagine the are facing the sun, shining upward.
Begin at the center point and make little half circles going around that center point. The roses are darker in the middle, which means you use less water in your paint and as you work outward around the center, you gradually add a bit more water. When you’ve done a layer or two of strokes, rinse your brush and work the strokes into the background with a bit of water, leaving some white space. Continue to work outward adding more and more water.
