Kathy Speranza Roses – Online Course Pass 2

Kathy Speranza Rose Workshop – Second Pass

Pass 2 on the Kathy Speranza rose workshop. This is lesson 6 and the second pass putting on color. I’m finding this tricky but slowly getting into the slow pace of things. Usually I would be finishing up by now but I think there are a few more steps to go. Each with a week’s drying in between so we’re in for the long haul. This one was refining the background, values and edges. I also introduced some more chroma into the centers. A very little paint goes a long way with this method and I’m starting to enjoy it very much.

Here is the first pass

Kathy Speranza Roses Online Course – Pass 1

I was watching Kathy Speranza’s online rose course yesterday and thought I’d have a go. She makes it look so easy! And boy can she paint.

I’m not doing her exact method. She does an underpainting first and a number of preliminary drawings but I thought I’d have a go at the block in to see what happened. Pretty happy so far.
