Lesson 1: Classic Ivory Garden Roses

1 hour 32 minutes

This lesson features the luscious David Austin Leonora ivory rose. She is the epitome of grace and elegance with her ruffly ivory petals and the smell of a traditional English rose garden.

You’ll walk away from this lesson understanding the form and structure these breathtaking roses. I’ll be teaching you one of my most popular rose compositions that can be used again and again in a variety of ways.

This lesson ensures your mastery of light and shadow with whites.

Lesson 2: Beatrice Yellow Garden Roses in Silver

2 hours 12 minutes

This painting lesson features the beautiful, delicate, and divinely colored David Austin Beatrice rose in a creamy honey yellow color. All the ruffles radiate in full bloom like a radiant sunburst.

You’ll learn how Kelli adjusts and problem solves when her original background color isn’t working and dealing with wilted roses on a two day painting. See how she works on this painting dry on day two’s second sitting.

Lesson 3: Sweet Juliet Vignette

1 hour 39 minutes

Paint this gorgeous rose bush vignette featuring David Austin’s most popular Sweet Juliet rose. With all her sweet apricot, blush, and pink colors she is perfect for a high key bluish grey background. Learn how to create movement and rhythm in the blooms and abstracted leaves while keeping the focus on the star heroine Juliet.

Lesson 4: Rainbow Rose Bouquet in Copper

1 hour 45 minutes

Some of the most beautiful historical rose paintings have included a mix of colors in the bouquet. This arrangement was inspired by many Fantin LaTour paintings Kelli’s loved over the years. Multiple colors makes for easier painting and an easier path to success in your composition (not to mention we get to indulge in our love of color).

This 12”x12” painting features red, pink, ivory, and yellow David Austin roses used throughout the series. You’ll also discover how Kelli handles adding in the background pattern at the very end simply without distracting from the main event.
