Antonov, Alexei: AA04d - Portrait of the Yellow Rose

It is difficult to paint flowers, especially roses. The rose is a symbol of eternal beauty that we can admire, and if we are artists, we can try to depict it on canvas. You probably know that there are many roses in my still lifes; I have been trying to paint them the way Old Masters did, and I think I have learned how to do so. Now I am sharing the Old Masters secrets with you. If you are interested to know how to create gorgeous roses on canvas and how this technique differs from other painting styles, watch this new video workshop and you will learn:
