lesson 3 cherokee Roses in color

We have been studying the various stroke techniques of the elements in a rose painting.  The leaves with vain, the flower, the buds, stem and thorns.  Now we have to put them together logically.  You have to convince people you have studied roses in its natural form.  So do study them whenever you have the opportunity.  This is the lifelong habit artist acquire and delight in.   Then render a second appearance with your brush. This iteration completes the learning cycle.
