Teach yo’self: Watercolored roses via Trevor Waugh

This is the first time I tried to paint roses under ten minutes. I have never painted using a youtube vid, so this is a first as well! Unlike other vids where the artist tells us about the materials and the steps for the painting, Trevor Waugh’s vid jumps right in, and paints within 8 minutes. I made a quick mix of pink using my waterbrush and tried to catch up with him as he painted. I love his technique, and by the time the vid was finished, I was finished as well.

I’m afraid of painting flowers since I tried it several times and I wasn’t that pleased with the results. But this vid changed my mind, I actually enjoyed the quick process!

Here are the roses I came up with:


Yay for learning!
