Painting roses

I've always wanted to try painting roses, so tonight I gave it a whirl. This was my first attempt. I haven't watched any videos or read any books yet, I just followed a guide in a painting magazine. I painted these on a small papier mache box. I'll try it on a jar when I feel more comfortable with it.

LOL! I always got A's in art class in school but I never went to college, just a few night classes, but that was accounting. I don't think I could teach because I paint too "willy nilly". LOL I don't really have a method, I just keep playing with the design until it looks the way I want it to. I'm looking forward to trying the roses on a larger surface tho, this is a small box, only about 4 inches wide.

Thank you so much for the compliments!!!!!

Amanda--you definitely have a natural talent--and it certainly is not a hidden talent anymore! You did a beautiful job--I can't believe you are teaching yourself all of this--incredible! ;-)

Thank you so much! I have been dying to try roses for months, just never had anything to go off of. I happened across this magazine at a friend's house today, she let me borrow it. The other thing I want to try is landscapes, like mountains, seas scapes, farm scenes, etc. I love the look of these things painted on saw blades, rusty buckets, chairs, and all those neato bandito things

I know what you mean, Amanda--I have wanted to try landscapes, too, but have not yet. I have always thought the painting on saws was cool, too! Post your landscapes soon!
