Valentine Red Rose Painting

Is February, The month for love! What a better time to learn to paint a Valentine Red Rose.


  1. Start by drawing the rose with a pencil.
  2. Paint the under-paint with Gold Acrylic. Paint a second coat of Gold Acrylic around the rose. The best media to do your under-paint is acrylics because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are defining your drawing with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.
  3. Paint the gold background first. Rose next and leaves last.
  4. Enjoy finishing your painting. You can use acrylics or oils.
  5. Sign your work of art.
