Painting a Rose in Watercolor

Painting a Rose in Watercolor post image

I recently did a small experiment while painting a rose.

What was interesting for me about this was visualizing the shapes of light and shadow, instead of the shapes of ‘rose petals’.

By focusing on the shapes of light and shadow it’s easier to see what’s in front of you instead of working through the filter of the label ‘rose petals’ of the thing seen.

In this video you can watch the painting process in real time.
