Happy Valentines Day: Roses 2013


Happy Valentines day to  all my blog readers. Whether you are a romantic or not painting roses is such a fabulous way to spend time. I do love that my " Painting Roses"  posts on my blog have become so popular. So to celebrate this  day of all days,  when roses are important,  here are a few of my happiest memories and favourite watercolour paintings of roses.


 On my easel, a rose collection

 A very old favourite from years ago
Scents of Summer


 Again, an old favourite of mine.

Artist Tips for the Day 
Paint from life as much as possible
Try to capture a sense of emotion in your work
When painting flowers think about whether they are soft and delicate and choose colour accordingly.

Your work is so beautiful, Jean! I keep reading your posts but attempting your techniques is proving, as I knew it would, very difficult because of my warped fingers (disabling condition). However, I'm often trying a watercolour effect with my digital work so all is not entirely lost and you are a great inspiration to me.
