a beautiful rose site

paintingfoolJuly 2, 2007

For those of you who love painting roses, this is Gary Jenkins website. He and his wife paint beautiful roses and they teach also. They are putting together another PBS series after 10 years of being off the air and should be available in the fall. If you have a PBS station in your area, you could ask that they pick this series up, they show you how to paint the roses and other flowers, birds, etc. and I know you will love it. I don't know how to link the site but this is the we address. Enjoy.

PF, You are right, beautiful painting--BUT I sure am not at that level of painting! LOL

I'll leave the oil painting to you, you are much more skilled in that, and much better at stroke work.

Thanks for sharing the site, I will certainly watch for their new show. Love to watch painters.

Here's a rose tutorial I found online. I haven't tried it yet but they make it look soooo easy. I've never been to good at roses. I find using an angle brush helps. But I'm going to give this a try. Thought you might what to check it out. Gail

Hi Gail, for some reason, I can't get my mind around stroke #3. LOL I can do the DD one stroke rose fairly well now, and I am working on learning to do a more loose stroke rose. Even have a dvd of a shabby chic one. I love the look of projects with roses on them. Thanks for sharing that site, it was fun to see another approach. Luvs
