Native to the Northern Hemisphere, roses evolved millions of years ago, before North America separated from Eurasia. Of the estimated 159 species of wild roses, more than half are endemic to China. Ever since the Greek and Roman Empires, no flower has captured the human imagination in quite the same way. Start by studying rose paintings from masters of the past such as Alfred Parsons and Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Learn how to draw the complex petal configurations, contrasting luminous and velvety petal textures, prickles and thorns. Practice techniques from wet-on-wet to drybrush and learn how to use them appropriately. You will leave this class with a finished, exquisite rose painting!

Prerequisite: Botanical Illustration in Watercolor I.
