For the Beginning Artist
Acrylics - Painting Roses - Introduction to The Art of Painting Stroke Roses
Online Art Class - Instructor Susan Abdella
By popular demand, Susan Abdella has created an introductory online class for learning a traditional style of painted rose. This way, beginning artists can avail themselves to 'one on one' feedback from Susan as she helps them learn the lovely stroke rose, one petal at a time. This online class has been paced for the beginning artist.
Class Objective: Learn how to paint stroke roses that can be painted on any surface. Stroked roses are stylistic roses used to decorate painted furniture, decorative pieces used for home decor and most especially painted in mass clusters to create unique floral compositions on canvas.
In this class, students observe how Susan builds the structure of the rose, step by step using individual brushstrokes. Watch and learn as each rose petal is applied to build the bowl of the single flower and the outer petals to show this rose in full bloom.
Susan demonstrates different color roses and color combinations, so the student learns how to paint a variety of roses of many colors.

I've only started with this on-line class. However, what I've seen in the video -- I absolutely love it and have the confidence that I'll be able to conquer stroke roses by the end of the course and of course with lots of practice.
