Welcome to Rosecote, a place where you can browse for decorative painting designs created by Jeanne Downing, CDA, and published in decorative painting books, packets, videos, and DVDs.

We are currently in the process of updating our site to make it easier to navigate accross multiple devices. You may notice that some pages are still renedered in the 'old' look. Please excuse our 'dust'! Everything is still functional as we sweep up the old and replace with the new!

Each design, whether painted on china tea services or distinctive wood items, is created to fulfill a purpose at Rosecote. Expressions of elegance and a hint of romance are a hallmark of Jeanne's designs.

Oil Painting Expressions is now online with Session Four. Come and paint with me and seven talented teachers. Learn how to paint this gorgeous rose.

New to Oils? We make it easy to learn! Watch and paint along with the short tutorials in the Oil Basics Brush Ups Series covering topics like surface preparation, blending, leaves, twigs, fruit, flower petals, shapes, gold leafing, varnishing, and more. Already an accomplished oil painter? Then you can pick up some valuable oil techniques to add to your skillset!

The Rosecote Online Classroom is open! You need not be enrolled to enjoy the free video tips and tutorials for painting with oils. New video tutorials have just been added to the new IPad/Tablet/Software page. We now have two new courses available, Just the Basics Textures, and Just the Basics, Digital Brushes! Be sure to check them out.
