Another Rose at watercolor class Day 3

You guessed it I had to face another rose at class on Day 3. Welcome back folks.

I opened my link to Day 3 classes and there was my nemesis 'the rose' well you could imagine I started to sweat as I had a fierce encounter on day 2 of class.

Well as I prepared myself for another round of matches with 'the rose' I remembered that one of my teachers(Dawn) said to me to do what makes me happy but have fun at class and also the encouragement I got from other students (Suzie and Dottie)to not worry about it but keep practicing and look at it in the morning, you will see how much better it I took a deep breath and proceeded.

It was actually a much better experience this time around as I learnt the technique of 'wet lifting' to remove excess pigment to create definition of petals etc... it was way cool and also applied the technique of negative painting!

Take a look and let me know what you think. I have a pic of the rose before and after I mounted it on a card!


  1. Very nice!! I hope mine turns out that well!!

  2. Thank you very much Robin I know yours will turn out even better than mine!
