Art Demo – Simple Rose Bud in Watercolour for Mum on Mother’s Day

I love pale pink and this delicate rose is a unique way to say happy Mother’s Day. If you are into making home-made gifts you could paint it and frame it or make a card out of it.

Paper is Arches Hot pressed 90lbs. Brush is a round size 3. Paints are Lemon Yellow, Raw Sienna, Sap Green, Rose Madder genuine.

Just click on the image below to bring it up nice and big so you can see what I did – have fun!

To finish I used a stronger green mix of Sap Green and Lemon Yellow to suggest veins on leaves and sharper shadows on stem. Then I added some tiny stronger patches of Rose Madder on the petals to suggest form.
