Choose your rose paint color and load your round petal brush. Use the fine tip of the round petal brush to create several dots to create the center bud area of the flower.
Add more paint to your brush and slowly drag around the brush tip in a circular motion, lifting 1/3 of the way around. Repeat to create several shapes which don’t necessarily touch.
Now create the larger petal shapes using the same brush. Apply more paint, place onto the paper, push down as you pull in a circular manner to create a wider shape in the middle, then lift up at the end to create the petal shape. Repeat to create additional rose petals as wide as you want. Repeat all these steps to create additional roses in a bunch, choosing different colors, if you wish.
To create a petal shape, add green paint to the oval petal brush. Place the brush onto the paper pushing down as your drag and lifting at the end to complete a petal shape alongside a single rose or between two roses.
If you’re looking to create additional greenery around your watercolor roses, give the tri-wedge brush a try! This brush can be triple loaded with different colors to create these additional accent pieces.
Mix and match these brush shapes to create watercolor roses and the accent pieces surrounding them.
