Rose Study: Acrylic on Watercolor Paper

Hello Love. Today I’m giving a quick acrylic painting lesson where I show you how to create a study of loosely painted red roses. Roses are a classic flower that you can paint by themselves or use to add beautiful embellishments to your other subjects. You can watch this video to simply relax and be inspired. Or you can watch it twice, once to see what happens and again to paint along with me. Just hit pause as needed to take things step by step because I move the video along fairly quickly.

Donations are appreciated if you're able. If you find this video helpful, either emotionally or technically, I will have more information about that down below.

Art is a beautiful experiment, so no matter where you are in your art journey, the most important thing is to show up and get started with an open mind. Practice and you will learn something new every time. Happy painting. Much love!
