How many roses is this woman going to paint?!?

OK, the social distancing might be getting to me. I have apparently only been painting roses this week! Let’s call it “Working in a Series” and not “Lindsay’s Lost her Mind”, does that sound good to you?

This painting took quite a long time to paint (About 2 1/2 hours) and to be honest, I’m not totally happy with it but I am going to set it aside and look at it in a few days. There is a real time tutorial of this in Critique Club (we edited out the repetitive bits so it’s a mere hour and a half) if you are interested. For those of you who are not members, Critique Club is a group that allows you to upload 2 paintings a month for an in-depth critique from me. You also have access to dozens of long, more advanced tutorials in a variety of medias with 2 new tutorials every month. You can learn more or join here. Now, on to the time lapse!

All of the supplies I am using are in my new signature set from Jerry’s Artarama. I am kinda excited to have my own signature sets and I will share more about them later this week! Here is the reference photo I used today.

I hope you are safe and healthy. Happy crafting!
