This tutorial is a good practice of softening technique. We will use wet on wet painting, even some negative painting, but on the petals we’ll have to use softening technique to create tonal transitions from dark to light. It’s a good project for all skill levels. More challenging for beginners (but feasible!) and simpler for more experienced artists, who would like to take a break and paint something easier. It's a completely self-paced course.You will learn:
- how to paint vibrant pink rose
- how to paint the background using wet on wet technique and negative painting
- how to capture beautiful light on the petals
- how to create an illusion of curled petal shapes
- how to easily paint waterdrops on the petals

I'm Chris and I'm very happy to welcome you here! I'm a self-taught watercolorist based in Poznań, Poland working full-time as an artist. I've been painting with watercolors since 2012 and in 2019 I launched my Online Watercolor School.
I like to paint in a realistic style. I love bright, pure colors to make my works intense, colorful and full of positive energy. The main theme of my paintings is flowers and birds, because I am amazed by the diversity and richness of their shapes and colors.
