Painting Roses

petalsbytinkerbellApril 3, 2009

Hello ladies!! I just stumbled onto this site and thought I would offer some suggestions. Start by reading everything you can find on roses...painting books,patterns,gardening books and videos.Practise everything you read. Don't knock Donna Dewberry..if you can get her videos get them!! Also...Donna Lee Parella. If you can take painting it....oil and acrylic. The way I learned how to paint was through trial and error. I was very frustrated and was in tears because I knew what I wanted to paint but didn't know how. Many artists did not want to share nor help...and because of that, I have decided to help everyone that asks. If you have any questions..please feel free to email me at Or you could visit my web site and petalsbytinkerbell my Ebay ID. I'm just in the middle of listing some new items. I'm also writing a book on my romantic roses which will be out next year!!!

Remember....never stop learning...

Hi Mary, I took a look at your site, and you have truly mastered painting a very romantic looking rose. I can paint a pretty decent one stroke rose, but would love to learn to do a more "fluffy" one like yours. Have you thought about doing a video?

I would like to invite you to come over to the Tole and Decorative Painting forum to share some of your knowledge and experience with us. We have a discussions side where we talk painting and post some pictures and a gallery section for posting pictures as well.

Here's a link for you.
