Other Supplies

  • Two 10” x 20” artist canvases

Instructions

  1. Prepare the canvas by basecoating with Medium Blue using the 1 ½“ Base Coat Brush.  Let dry.  If needed, apply a second coat for even, opaque coverage.  Let dry.
  2. Trace the design onto tracing paper using a fine black marker.  Tape the design onto the canvas. Next, transfer the design to the canvas by slipping a piece of white artist transfer paper under the design and go over the design lines with a ball point pen or stylus.
  3. Using the 1” Flat Brush, undercoat the design elements as described:
    1. The large rose: A mixture of equal parts Sugar Plum and Berry Wine
    2. Smaller Roses: Sugar Plum
    3. Leaves: Thicket
  4. If any color is not opaque, let dry and apply a second coat of that color.  Let dry.
  5. Once again, tape the traced design to the canvas and line up the tracing with your undercoat.  Slip a piece of White artist transfer paper between the canvas and the tracing.  Transfer the leaf veins and the rose petals to the canvas.
  6. Using the #12 Round brush, paint the petals on the large rose with Fire Coral.  Highlight the petals using the same brush and Baby Pink.
  7. Paint the petals on the remaining roses using the #12 Round Brush and Baby Pink.  Highlight the petals with Wicker White.
  8. The leaves are highlighted using the #12 Round brush and Pearl Peridot.  Add additional highlights of Pure Gold.
