Painting Demo Yellow Rose

Today I am doing a demo of a watercolor painting of a yellow garden rose.




I started with 200 lb cold pressed watercolor paper and drew where I wanted the rose to be.

I painted in some of the shadow colors first so I wouldn't love the shape of the flower as I added color washes to it.


I started adding some of the base colors and leaving high lights.


I load up my palette with lots of color so I don't run out.


I add the base steam color and the thorns.


I begin adding background washes to the painting.

I get darker at the bottom because I want the large rose to be the focus of attention in this painting.
