Painting the Rosa canina Flower (Video)

Now it is time to paint the rose flower! Get comfortable and enjoy the process.

Playback: Remember that on these long videos you can always adjust the viewing speed in the player settings if you prefer to just get an overview rather than painting along in real time. Alternatively you can skip around in the video to get a better idea of the various steps before you start. As usual, I’ve recorded this in real time so that we can paint together at a relaxed pace.


  • Brushes: size 0 round, size 4 round
  • Pigments: Permanent rose, ultramarine blue or cobalt blue, transparent yellow (or lemon yellow), cadmium yellow (opaque warm yellow). Optional: Green Gold (Windsor Newton)
