Feel free to use your own choices of colors, this list is what I had used in the painting.

Roses all under painted with different shades of yellow

Note, I added a touch of darker yellow to the center of the right rose. Each rose is pointing a different direction. You will see what I mean soon.

Paint Rose Bowl

Using the #12 flat brush double load with Pure Daffodil Yellow and Yellow Ocher.

Create the back of the bowl of the rose center with 3 scallop type strokes. (the video on this is very helpful)

Reload, paint the second layer about halfway up the first.

Your strokes should end with a bit of a tail.  You do that by lifting the brush as you end the stroke to the chisel edge.

Need more help? Here is a beautiful step by step for painting these roses.

Reload your brush and do a small upside down U stroke for the very center of the rose.

Paint Side Petals

I call these the armchair strokes, it is a scalloped C stroke on each side of the center, rather like chair arms.

Paint one on each side of the bowl. You can see the tails come across towards the center.

On the left side of the rose paint another armchair arm beneath the first.

painting the lower side petal and bottom petal

Paint a scalloped U stroke at the bottom of the rose.

No need to paint the lower armchair petal on the right side as the other rose will be covering it anyways

Paint Rose Center

Finishing up the bowl of the rose, first pull a stroke across from the left to the right picking up the tails of the second back layer.

(in this rose the very center is left with only the top portion)

Note I do not connect this rose to the tail of the second back petal.

Now start at the right tail of the second back petal and pull a stroke across, you are basically layering this stroke halfway across the first.

The next layer is finishing the rose bowl. Start on the left at the tail of the back bowl, pull your stroke to the opposite side. You can connect it to the tail on the right or do as I did and finish a little below it.

Now the other side, start on the right tail of the back rose bowl and pull it over the last stroke.
