Water Color Pencil Roses Tutorial - Step by Step 9 Years, 5 Months ago  
I am posting this Tutorial but it comes courtesy of DorsArt who kindly offered it for our information and use here.



Materials Needed:

* Any water color paper - I will use Arches 140lb approx A4 size for ease of scanning
* Artists quality pencils - Derwent, Faber-Castel etc. (water soluble)
* Pencil HB
* Eraser
* Brushes - Nos 1, 2, 5, 6, round No 2 wash brush (water color)
* Tissues
* Container of Water
* Cotton Wool balls or cotton make up remover pads

Step 1


Step 2


How I apply the paint to the wet brush


Once the brush is loaded with paint, I apply it to the painting


Filling in the background as I go along


Applying pencil direct for the darkest shadows


Adding water to fade out the shadows


Instructions on how the leaves are done

Now for the background:

Use medium size brush and cotton wool/pad
1. Wet brush
2. Load brush with color
3. Apply color to painting as per images

As you apply paint, use cotton wool or tissues to take off excess paint by dabbing. Also you can dab the paint onto the paper with cotton wool or brush to give a mottled effect.

The center is done dark to bring out the flowers. Black or dark sepia.

For the light coming through, use pale yellow or blue.

For the outer shaded areas, use light brown through to dark brown.

After completing the roses, I do the background. I show here the process of how the background is achieved.


Note the center of the background is darker to bring out the roses.


The finished painting


Thank you DorsArt for this wonderful tutorial.

What a great tutorial! I am trying to learn watercolor painting, but it's much more difficult than I thought it would be! Have not tried the pencils though.

Great tutorial! One of these days, I'd like to try it. I haven't painted with watercolors since I was a teenager (many, many moons ago!).
