Paint a realistic rose step-by-step

This Rose 'Constance Spry' has been one of my all-time most popular tutorials. Hundreds of my School members have taken the video tutorial to tackle this pretty, advanced-level subject, and achieved spectacularly realistic results.

And it's now available as a PDF tutorial.

There are some situations when a video tutorial isn't the most practical. For example, when you have limited internet access or are going on holiday. And sometimes it can be helpful to keep a record of the stages a painting went through, to help us remember the process we followed and things we learned.

So by popular demand, I've put together this extremely comprehensive PDF tutorial. If you think my paintings are detailed, just wait until you see what I've packed inside this tutorial!

"I just framed this painting and it makes me feel so proud. It's the most beautiful work I've ever done!" ~ Elena, School member
