How To Watercolor A Rose

Roses are beautiful flowers that have been loved and admired by people for centuries. Roses are available in a huge variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and forms. Roses are easy to grow from seeds or cuttings. You can even grow roses from rose hips if you know how to do it properly.

How To Watercolor A Rose

Here is the complete process explained in detail on how to watercolor a rose:

1. Mix the colors on your palette to create a variety of hues.

Start with a light color and add darker tones to create shadows.

2. Paint the rose petals first, starting with the lightest values and working toward the darkest shadows.

Paint one side of each petal at a time, then paint in between each petal so you don’t have any white showing through from underneath.

3. Paint the stem and leaves next, leaving some areas unpainted for highlights.

Use green for the leaves and brown for the stem to make it look like wood.

4. Step 4

4. Add texture by painting some of the leaf veins in different directions or by adding small dots for flower buds on top of some of the petals.
You can also add texture by using a toothbrush to dab on irregular shapes in different shades of red, pink or yellow around the edges of each petal, as if you were sponging on color with watercolor paints (see example).

This will make your rose look more realistic because real roses often have an uneven edge or even a few spots where they’ve been eaten away by insects or disease (see example).  If you want to try this technique, start with a dark color like red or purple and brush lightly around the edge of each petal so it doesn’t stand out too much against the background color (yellow in this example).

Then go back over it again with a lighter shade like pink or orange so that it stands out against both colors but still looks natural and not too bright or artificial-looking (see example).

How do you paint a loose watercolor rose for beginners?

I’ve seen a lot of watercolor rose tutorials and they all seem to be quite complicated. I wanted to create a tutorial that is easy to follow for beginners, but still looks good enough that even the advanced painters can use it as a reference.

In this tutorial you will learn how to paint loose watercolor roses in three different ways: 1) Wet on wet 2) Wet on dry 3) Dry brush.

How To Paint Loose Watercolor Roses Step by Step Tutorial
For this tutorial I used Winsor & Newton Artists’ Water Colour paints, which are my favorite brand of paints. However, any other brand will work just as well. Just make sure you have a set of good quality brushes and an eraser if you need one! You can find my favorite brushes here or here!

Step 1: Paint the Background Color First!

First, fill up your palette with your background color (in this case I used Winsor Blue). Then start painting the background using long strokes and horizontal lines. Make sure that you don’t press too hard when painting the background because it might show through on top later when we start adding details.

Also make sure you leave some room for your roses! When you are done with the background, let it dry completely before moving on to step 2. This usually takes about 30 minutes depending on how thickly you painted the colors.

The first thing I do is draw light pencil lines on the paper where I want my petals to be. This gives me an idea of where the petals should be placed and how they should look like. This is just a sketch, so don’t worry if some lines are not perfect or if some petals look a bit strang.

It doesn’t matter at this point! You can always erase them later, but it helps to have the initial structure drawn on the paper before working on it in watercolor pencils. And remember – practice makes perfect! So don’t worry if your early sketches don’t look perfect!
