Hi, Kitty Welcome to the forum
Most of the pleasant sounds from the violin have to do with bowing technique.
For the rosin, you'll learn to recognize the sound and feel telling you that you need more, but it doesn't hurt at all to do a swipe or two of rosin before you practice

Sweet sounds... intonation and straight bowing... bow pressure and speed... Whew...
You can do it....soon you will hear the sweet sounds.
Open string bowing practice and it will all fall into place.
Good luck and welcome welcome.
