Watercolor Application - E-Packet -Yellow Roses by Neadeen Masters
The goal of this lesson is to introduce the artist to the basic watercolor techniques and to paint a simple background wash. We will create full blown roses, viewed from the front as well as the side profile. While painting this 'old styled' botanical spray, you will be able to paint detailed, up-close roses using 'wet in wet' and 'wet on dry' traditional watercolor techniques. Transparent washes and glazes are used to describe the warm dramatic colours of these roses and create the supporting leaves. You will work with a limited palette and add the final details such as honey bees and soft colour accents to carry colour and interest throughout this design.
This painting packet has been created using Acrylic paints used as a traditional watercolor medium. The paint has been mixed with Traditions Watercolor medium to create a reconstituable paint. The techniques used are traditional water techniques.
Note: There are many short watercolor videos that were created by Neadeen Masters where she demonstrates these techniques used in this painting. These will be a good visual help while painting this design.

I am new to watercolor painting so this was a first try for me. I always ask myself how to paint watercolors with acrylics. This lesson taught me that I can get the same transparent look with using my acrylic paints. Thank you for the step by step instructions and photographs.
I am happy.
