Is it just me, or does everyone want to learn how to paint watercolour roses? The loose, playful paint style is really modern right now and can be seen on everything from bedding to notebooks and wedding stationery. I’ve been on a mission to find out how to paint those beautiful roses I’ve been seeing on Instagram lately. There are lots of video tutorials on YouTube but these are a few of my favourites.

These watercolour rose tutorials are great but what I’ve found helped me more was an in-depth online class. Something where the instructor shows you even more tips and tricks to get your paintings to look good. I’ve been a subscriber to Skillshare for years now and it’s always my first stop when I’m learning something new. Here are the classes I took that I wholeheartedly recommend:
Watercolor: Loose Florals by Peggy Dean
In this class, Peggy shows you how to paint watercolour roses, poppies, peonies, buds and leaves. I love her teaching style because she goes slow (but not too slow) and explains every brush stroke. I really appreciate that as a beginner. You can view the trailer of her class here.
How to paint a watercolor floral wreath
Another class I took was by Caitlin Sheffer and here we learn how to paint a watercolour floral wreath. She shows you an easy way how to make sure your wreath is balanced and takes you through the whole process from start to finish. Definitely recommend it! You can view her class trailer here.
These are just two of the watercolour rose painting classes I’ve taken. If you are looking for something specific, feel free to contact me and I’ll do my best to find it.
