DVD -Stroke Roses with Susan Abdella

Stroke roses have always been popular with decorativer painters. They can be used to embellish any surface and create stunning floral works.  Watch as Susan as she demonstrates these beauties and follow her step-by-step progression as she builds these flowers one petal at a time.

Once you have perfected the stroke rose, think of the many ways this lovely grouping of roses can be used? Decorate painted furniture pieces, canvas wall art, picture frames, greeting cards, decorate walls and doors, paint on china dishes, stem glassware and so much more.

The possibilities are endless and the surfaces? ...well the sky is the limit!

Learn the Step By Step Application


True to Form and Perspective

Using Susan's step by step process, you can construct each rose, one petal at a time. The rose is broken down into simple steps so the perspective is true and the flower looks true to form. This makes it much easier to understand and to follow.

 Three Color Combinations

Here's a little video snippet where Susan shows you how to paint her stroke roses using an angle brush and a combination of specific brush strokes. You can practise right along with Susan, painting these flowers over and over until you have perfected the construction of the rose.

  • You can watch and learn how to load the brush,
  • How much paint to use,
  • At what angle the brush is held to the surface,
  • How much pressure Susan uses to paint each brush stroke.
  • Watch at close - up range and play the DVD over and over until you perfect the rose!

Create a Small Bouquet of Flowers

Complete with Leaves

In this Instructional Painting DVD, Susan also teaches you how to create a small bouquet of flowers complete with simple leaves.  Three different colors of roses are demonstrated and students learn how to create each of these hues.


Paint Media: Acrylic

These roses are painted with Traditions Artist's Acrylic Paints. The medium viscosity of the paint is important for the smooth flow of paint off the brush. This paint media suits the creation of painted stroke roses perfectly.
