Tole or OS Roses

I want to learn to paint roses. I've tried several painting techniques and I can't get the hang of either. I love to do more of the decorative/tole painting but I love the look of One-Stroke roses. I can't get the hang of the OS and I've been practicing for months. My outer petals and the bud look great but when I go to do the petals in between they look globby. Any help or hints out there?

OS Roses

Hi Cyn, I am not a great OS painter yet, but I love it!
I belong to a few painting groups on the net and they
tell me to keep practice, practice, practice! lol
Some OS's paint roses with flat brush, others with the
angle brush. when you paint an inner petal you get up close to
the bud and make a comma stroke.one on each side and sometimes one under the two comma strokes you have already made.
I hope i explained it.

Hi Nanc, I love the comma stroke but it seems more difficult for me with a flat brush than a round. Although the flat or angular brush is needed for the rose. I guess I have a mental block about it. I'm pretty sure I'm not holding the brush right - and I always feel like I'm painting these inner petals upside down.

Pm me the paint groups you've joined. I've joined a few and if the one you belong to can help me out more, I'm going to check them out. Thanks!

love, cyn

don't feel bad, i've been trying the one stroke for over 3 years and cant do the rose. i have the same problem as you.i think our problem is we want to make it look like dd, but we cant. so pick your own way of doing a rose. its alot easier.
