This week I was back to painting roses again with coffee and watercolor. It’s always fun to look back at previous work so I included some roses from the past here as well.
Happy Sunday, friends! 💚
I started with a center rose and then worked my way around. I love to paint with espresso powder for baking. Adding a few drops of water to a little powder and you have a beautiful “coffee” paint ready to go. I used a round #6 brush here. There is so much you can do with a round brush. I have a number of different sizes, just love them.
Painting Tip: Keep an eye on your brushes. Over time the tip of a round brush will wear down. I just noticed that I have a few brushes that I need to replace.
This time a little more color with some bright watercolor roses. This style is a bit more modern botanical…I like that.
and now looking back to a playful painting of roses from last year… I really love the colors and the movement in this one.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Having art in my life is such a blessing. Painting and sketching makes me happy and I am thankful that I can share my journey with you.
I will be taking a blogging break for a few weeks. I am busy getting ready for a bridal shower that I’m hosting later this summer. I will still be around and may post a few things on Instagram.
Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!
