Paint yellow roses in boots is the final lesson in the Paint Hydrangeas and Yellow roses in boots series. This free painting tutorial takes you step by step painting yellow roses in boots.
Ready to paint yellow roses in the boots? I am assuming you have already painted your boots and hydrangeas and are ready to proceed on to the yellow roses. Let’s get started!
Under paint Yellow Roses
Using a flat brush and Wicker White under paint your roses. This will help keep the yellow vibrant.
Most yellows are notoriously transparent and need a bit of help when going over darker colors.

Feel free to use your own choices of colors, this list is what I had used in the painting.
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.
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.
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.
If you get confused the video will help you tremendously.
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.
Finishing up first Yellow Rose in boots
Pull in chisel strokes as you see fit to neaten up the rose.
The other roses are painted in s similar fashion but with different color combos.
Look at finished roses
This photo below shows the differences in the roses.
The left rose is painted with a more closed center and with Daffodil Yellow and Ivory White (feel free to use Wicker White)
The rose on the right is painted with a very open center and in School Bus Yellow and Lemon Custard (feel free to use Daffodil Yellow). There are also more bottom petals as it overlaps the first rose.
