Roses Are Favourite Flower To Paint

September 20th, 2012 7:00 am


Roses are a fascinating flower to study and paint and there are many, many forms that the aspiring decorative painter can learn to paint and over time, master. Stroke roses are the dream of many beginning decorative painters!

Roses have been a universally favourite flower to paint – artisans and fine artists alike have incorporated the rose in their designs for centuries. They have been the primary subject matter in almost all traditional folk art – in Bauernmalerei there is the Tolzer rose, in French folk art, the Montpellier rose and the Strasbourg rose. The Rococo rose too is well-known. In some cases such as Hindeloopen, roses were painted naively and in others such as Zhostovo, they looked more realistic.

All of these roses, however, had one thing in common – they were all painted using round brush strokes.

Over time the flat brush technique for painting roses was developed and the predominant technique used in painting stroke roses in contemporary decorative painting today is double-loading using a flat or angle brush. Some decorative artists have also developed techniques of painting a stroke rose using a triple-loaded flat or angle brush.
