"Summer Serenade" by Martha Kisling

Original Watercolor - 11x15

The Creative Challenge this week was to paint roses - not always easy in watercolor.  With oils and acrylics you can add highlights with white paint to the petals after you have the darks in - with watercolor you have to think backwards and paint the lights first and then come in with the darks around the petals to add shape to the flower.

I hope you were able to paint some roses this week and would love to see them. You can post your paintings on my new Flickr Group site - Creative Monday Challenges - where we can all post, share and discuss our art. Click here to read more about Flickr or go straight to the group site here.
