Welcome to the 100 Day Watercolor Challenge! In this daily art challenge, we will be painting a small 5-minute painting every day for 100 days. Daily, I will be providing a new step-by-step tutorial filmed in real-time. I invite you to join me on this creative journey! During the class, we will be building a habit of making time for creativity every day. Also, during the challenge, we will be practicing brush control and wet into dry watercolor techniques. However, you are welcome to experiment with other media and add changes to the paintings. 

In the "Projects and Resources" of the class you will find a PDF attachment with printable templates and description of supplies for your reference.

2. Introduction: Hi, I'm Irina Trzaskos, watercolor artist and illustrator. Also, I love teaching watercolor classes online and live. During the years, I illustrated a lot of children books, created art for home decor, gift, and textile companies worldwide, and I'm a proud ambassador of World Watercolor Month, a charity movement for children. For 100 days, I'm challenging myself to create a five minutes watercolor painting, a small one and to post a video about it in this class. I invite you to join me in this adventure. The goal of this class is to develop a habit of making time for creativity every single day, and I think if we'll be doing this for 100 days, we will reach our goal of creating this habit. I invite you to join me in this challenge if you are new to this channel. Thank you for joining and welcome. Press the follow button on top. The next video, I'll be sharing more details about this class. Let's get started. 3. About the Final project: A graduate of this class, you can create a big mural like I did with all your 100 watercolor paintings. It was really fun to feed them and I hope you'll do the same and you'll follow every day. You can now choose to paint few paintings or one painting a day, it depends how much time you have. In the project section of a class that is attachment, where you can find a hexagon template. There's also a checker days so you cannot just color the hexagons you painted. So it's so much fun and I hope you'll keep going you can paint one painting, it depends how many days you want to do it. You can divide it and paint like four or five paintings in the same day if you have an hour of time. Also, don't worry if it takes you longer than five minutes, it probably will because you are watching and you are painting. Some students are having the best results when they would watch first the video and then they'd watch it the second time and they will paint it for me or you can just pause the video and follow step-by-step. This class is not in-depth class, it's just a very hands-on class so you just grab your brush and start painting right away without too much explanations like my other classes. I encourage you just to keep going even if something didn't come out perfect, it doesn't have to be perfect, just keep moving towards more complex, more advanced projects. Then if you want to return after that, you can return after to the project you are not happy with and you'll see the result will be much better than if you keep just painting the same thing all the time. I wish you good luck, and I can't wait to see your a 100 beautiful paintings at the end. Let's get started. 4. Class Project & Supplies: Because this is such a project, it's 100 small paintings. I wanted to keep it interesting and also I wanted to use as little supplies as possible. For my project, I chose a travel set of watercolors. This is Mission Gold watercolor. This is my travel set. But I encourage you to use any watercolors you already have. If you are going to travel, also use a travel set. Also we'll be needing water. I have paper towel. Usually watercolors have their own paint pallet inside. I suggest you to use that. So we don't have more supplies when we need to, in case we need to travel or to paint and then go somewhere. Also, I'll be using a travel brush, a number six brush. I always suggested, if you have to pick only one brush, it should be number four or number six, which has sharp teeth because I find this two size brushes the best for the most of the arts works. This is number six. It's the only brush we'll be using during this challenge. If you'll be a challenge again, while it's a 100 days, it could be a lot of circumstances. You can use a water brush which has water inside, so you don't have to carry water with you. I won't be using it, but I wanted to show. The paper. Before, I'll show you what people I'll be using and how do I decide to cut it. Well, just pull it over. There are some other options. You can use a sketchbook. Just make sure it's taken off so you have enough pages for 100 days. You can make your own sketchbook using watercolor paper. This one I made, this is a business card by some other artist, or you can use a big pad. You can even do it all monochrome and just paint more paintings on one page with just one color even if you want to be even more minimalistic, supplies wise. However, for this challenge, I chose to have this hexagon shaped tiles watercolor paper. I use just a regular nine by 12 Watercolor paper and I cut the hexagons out of it. In a project of the class, you'll find the PDF. We have a template. On one paper you can fit six of these hexagons. By the end of the project, by the challenge, you will have a big collection of hexagons. I thought they're very fun and original shape, unusual one. I they think they'll be looking very good if you'll be photographing them for your social media in groups of two, three or six or 100. For the final project, I challenge you to make something with these hexagons, with painted one. This is the first one we'll be painting. It can be in Euro, or it can be just such a cool project, or composition or installation. I am really excited if you'll be using also hexagon shape. We'll be doing all of this creative post on the social media. Talking about social media, we have a special hashtag for this challenge. Also, there's an official hashtags for 100 day challenge, and I suggest using them both for more exposure and to connect with more artists. Also, don't hesitate to tag me and on skill share if you want to. In the PDF of the class, you'll find all the useful resources and I hope you'll be using them. Today we'll be painting our first little painting, and I can't wait to get started. 5. Painting Herbs - Day 1/100: Hi. For today's warm up, let's just practice painting some herbs in different shapes. We'll start with ideal like a flower. We have lines which are coming all in one point, all to one point. Then, we'll take some yellow and we'll add three little dots, teeny tiny brush strokes to the hand of each. Like this. Now, let's paint the stem. Let's paint with you, awesome. As tiny as you can. If your brush or you're still not used to paint tiny lines, you can make a wider leaf too, it's okay. It just will be a different herb. Why not? One here. It's a bit of light, I'm not sure if you can see it, so let me add another layer. If you are painting in the morning, your hands are maybe shaking and could be because of coffee. Sometimes, it's easy to solve. If you have a good breakfast, then most likely, your hands won't be shaking anymore in the morning. Those are my tips for painting in the morning. Just have a good breakfast and not so much coffee. This is our ideal like herb. Also, I wanted to practice some leaves just by pressing the brush. It will be a different plant. Let's take some blue. We can see it's darker. Then this end, we'll just press the brush like this and we'll get a totally different shape for another herb. Let's make another one. You can use this shape for a lavender or sage, I think. Because they're similar, I'm not sure. I'm not too good in plants, not too good for plants' names. Just keep painting plants, herbs, as long as you are having fun. When you don't have fun anymore, just stop, and you can start your day. You can start your other creative projects or other projects you have for today. Or you can do something else if you want to. This is our warm up for today. I like it. It's very simple but still beautiful. You can even frame it if you want. I think, it's very nice. I'll see you tomorrow. Our A Hundred Day project can't wait. 6. Painting a Crocus - Day 2/100: Hi, so for today's creative warm-up. Let's paint a Crocus. Let's take some purple, and add some magenta to it to make a warmer shade. Also add model water. For a more beautiful, water colorly look. Just wave the brush, making one Petal. Just press the brush on the paper. Now the Petal. I'm not sure where it will go,I just want to see. Let's take more purple, a little bit of magenta. Another petal. Let's make another petal here. While this part it is drying, let's mix some green. I like the greener cities. So let's start from the color from the box. A little stem. Let's add some blue to our green to make it darker. With long, beautiful brushstrokes, let's add the leaves. Like this. Let's bring them all together. Next I want to add the flower ball here. But I didn't leave enough space, so it will be smaller than the usual crocus flower ball. So take some brown, mix it with water to keep the water colorly look. Then we'll end it right here. Let's add some [inaudible] why not? With a tip of a brash, let's add some roots. Next, a very important part with orange, we'll add stamens, like this, and on this side. It doesn't have to be too realistic, it's just a warm up. Because we painted all this so fast, we can add some shadows. So let's mix some more blue into our green. Just decide on which side will have a shadow. I decided it will be on the right. By adding those shadows we're adding some depth. With the purple let's add a little bit of texture and shadow to our petals. If you have more time, you can paint one crocuses and make an entire flower composition. So this was our creative warm-up for today. I'll see you tomorrow. 7. Painting a Lighthouse - Day 3/100: Hi, I hope you're doing well today. In today is watercolor warm up, I want to paint a lighthouse. It's easy paint art to do. We'll start with some cliffs and it will be such a small landscape, so I hope it'll come out good. Let's take some blue and mix orange to it to get the gray of our cliffs. Let say it'll be right here. Add a little bit of water. Let's add some brown to it to make it more earthy. Show some drops here. Next, let us take the same gray, [inaudible] to do it more than water and show the structure of our lighthouse. Nice. While vertex dry, lets paint our water. I'm taking cerulean blue and mixing it with the colors that we already haven't mixed in here. Press brush on the paper and you'll instantly get the water texture. I think it's too greenish so let's take some ultramarine blue and add some shadows on it. Very easy. Now, let's mix a thicker paint with less water, a blue with some orange. More blue and less orange. Let's add some details, show our lighthouse. Now, let's take some red, I wanted it to have a lot of water and add some a little bit of this blue from previous mix. Now, let's paint the lines. Next, I need some windows and door. Also, it could be like a little construction here, a roof, some walls, and some windows. Now, of course, let's add some light. Also, our rocks can use some shadows, just brush strokes. This is our warm up and here come lighthouse. Thank you so much for joining me. 8. Painting a Clover - Day 4/100: So for today's creative watermark in watercolor, I decided we should paint some clover, so I'll start from the flower,then taking some pink, I want it to be a pink clover. Let's add some orange deep for more vibrancy and with small brush strokes, we'll start painting a shape of a clover flower. I think it needs more magenta. So just relax and enjoy making this little brush strokes. Nice. Next, let's take some green and make the stem for our flower, and some branches which will have some leaves on them. Clover leaves are heart-shaped, and normally they have three leaves. But if you are lucky, you can find a four-leafed clover leaf. Like in St. Patrick's Day symbols. You can always add some blue to your ingredients or more down, for a darker color or just pick up darker green if you want to. This is a great brush control exercise. It is just heart-shaped, three leaves which have a point where they touch each other like this, and then the stem. If you want to practice brush control, just try to make smaller leaves and bigger leaves. This is a small one. Growing clover is very easier. If you find the bulbs in the store you can just plant them, and they grow pretty easier and some colors are amazing, like bluish burgundy. We are painting a classic green clover. Well, green leafed clover. With a pink cloud. I think we need another one here. As always, you can stop whenever you feel like. You can keep painting, if you have more time and if you enjoyed painting this type of leaves. So this is our clover flowered and our watermark for today. Thank you for being here. 9. Painting a Seashell - Day 5/100: Hi. For today's five-minute watercolor warm-up we'll be painting a seashell and we'll be using watercolor line painting technique so just take any color you like. I need some blue, some cerulean blue with orange and just relax, add a bit of lines. We'll start painting the seashell as symmetrical as possible, but if it's not, its okay. First, I'm painting these parts and then I will dilute my gray with a lot of water and we'll do the first line to decide how big will be my seashell. I think this is good. We will now start making other lines, curving them a little bit, and then another side the same thing and then they'll take some paint and I'll add an edge like this in waves. Let's make some more color with less water. Cerulean blue. You can pick any colors you like. I'll start adding some shadows. Some here and some more lines to show the texture of an edge and to make it a little bigger. Maybe someone more little lines here. I'm not sure if its dry. No, it's not. But it's okay. I'll try not to over do it but it's just a warm up so it's okay to. This shape can be a little bit of a sharper angle here and few more darker spots here and there. I like how it looks, I think it got a lot of character. It's not too symmetrical, but it's okay and I think it's really lovely. Thank you for joining me in this challenge and painting this warm up with me. I hope you've painted with me and I'll see you tomorrow. 10. Days 1 to 5: 11. Painting an Olive Branch - Day 6/100: Hi. For today's watercolor warm-up, lets paint olive branch. I wanted to do a green olives not a black olives. Let's start from painting the branch. This a brown let's add some orange to it, and you get the warm brown color. I've never seen an olive tree so if it's not sharp I'll curve it. I'm sorry. Here is our branch. I think this is enough of a branch for now, and we can always add more ramifications for our branch later. Next let's take some green, and add some blue to it, and then add some cold orange. This is so much orange so let's add some more blue, and a little bit of green. I'll be painting out leaves, just by pressing the brush on paper like this. The color I was looking for is bluish green with a gray. That's why we added so many colors in the mix. These are our leaves, and next lets take some green and mix some more water to it. Here is our olive with some highlights in it. I was glad to paint another one here but now I don't have enough space, so let's paint it here. Take this branch and we need to get all the way here. This base is a empty, so we paint another little branch, and a leaf, and maybe another little leaf. I like how it looks. You can add a note here or a quote, and this is our five-minute watercolor warm-up. Thank you for joining me. 12. Painting a Landscape - Day 7/100: Hi. Thank you for joining this challenge. In today's warm-up, I thought we can paint a small landscape with not so much water, we won't incur our tiny piece of paper. It will be like days to have a small house on the hill, but what else want settle and actually. Let's start with some green and light green. It'll look different with a lot of water, and paint our hill like this. Let's add some blue to it and I'll have some shadow. Next, let's add some yellow, and we'll have a valley. I know it doesn't look like much to this point, but let's paint our house and see how it will look then. I'm taking the brown with some orange. It already looks better. I left a room for the roof and I'm stuck in the paint. It happens all the time. Then, I'm taking some red and mixing it with this brown. Why do I do that? To make sure it looks good with the walls we just painted. I want to make a roof taller, and then, I'll add some more brown there. Of course, it starts bleeding green. Trying to rescue it. On this another side, let's add some more brown. Right here, we'll add black. I imagine some more blue to cover it. For the window in the house, let's have an orange. This one's orange. We have an orange dot. This house is so small. Also, I want to have a chimney. Let's make this window dark. This is better. Let's add some shadow under the roof right here. Next, once you all do that, add some trees on top of the hill so the house doesn't look so lonely. Let's have a tree right here. Mix some yellow with green. Yeah. That's some foliage. Like this. Maybe some bushes on this side. It doesn't look on a hill anymore. The last one which you can rescue our painting are some green herbs in the front. You can add some flowers, too. This is not a best of our warm-ups, but it's okay. It doesn't have all to be pretty. Some are just fun, and it's totally fine. This is our little house on a hill warm-up. Thank you for joining me and I'll see you tomorrow. 13. Painting a Peach Branch - Day 8/100: Hi, I hope you're doing great today. For today's five-minute warm-up, we'll be painting some peaches on a branch. So let's take some brown and add some blue to it. As always, you can use any colors you like, or whichever you choose for this challenge. Again, I want to go diagonally where the composition. You can see I added a lot of water to my color mix. I'm trying to go with this wobbly shaped, a branch. To show this is a peach, peach tree. Next let's take some red orange and mix it with some magenta, and a lot of water. Though we should add some yellow orange to it too, it's looking too red. I'll just go ahead and paint a circle with a little point here, and right here. Another one right next to it. Let's leave a white line in between them. These are our peaches, let's add some more branches. It's not perfect, but it's just a warm up. Maybe this will give you some ideas for future paintings. Now I want to add some leaves to this. Let's take some emerald green and some yellowish orange to it. Some more emerald green this turned into actual yellow, and run with long, beautiful brush strokes. Let's paint some leaves. You can see how fast, and easy we can paint our first painting for a note to a friend or for most of you just a warm-up to start the nice creativity or just relax at the end of the day. I don't need a lot of time to paint something beautiful. I think we have plenty of leaves. Later when your picture is dry, you can add a line on them like this. Of course, you can make a bigger composition if you want, if you have more time. Thank you so much for joining this challenge and joining me today in this water color warm-up. Thank you. 14. Garden Gate - Day 9/100: Hi, I hope you are in a creative mood today. For today's warm up, I decided we should paint watercolor garden gate. Let's take some blue and mix it with orange. If you have Payne's gray, you can just use it right away without mixing too much like me. Let's have a brush control exercise where we can practice our asymmetry in painting, so let's starts with a line. It will be a pretty small gate because the size of my paper is small. This is the middle of a gate, and let's add some paint one side and the second side. This gave us a pretty ornate one. It's already croaked but it's okay. I got inspired by our architectural Rococo elements, which are very trendy now. It'll be a lot of ornate elements, so we need another, this one was a shaky one. Another one and another one. Don't worry about the imperfections, it's totally normal. This is another good test to see how small are the brushstrokes, brushstrokes you can do, and your brush can handle. More elements here and here. The fun part about Rococo, it's actually asymmetrical. Georgian style is symmetrical and Rococo is not. Sometimes it looks symmetrical, but when you look closer, not all the elements are symmetrical, really. We can just come up with some twirls and churns or we can find some reference of. If you are going to create an artwork on the same topic, you can just do. I use some blueprints from 18th century to get inspired. What I'm doing I'm just creating some twirls and churns and keeping it three-layer that are spontaneous and playful because that's what I'm upset about. We are making mistakes and I'm hoping the gentle be a heavy one. It'll be easier with a bigger piece of paper, but maybe not. It'll be fun to make an entire collection of this with some plants behind. You can use this for some wedding with decor. All right, so it looks like a gate, that's a good part. Next step I want to paint a piece of a wall here. So I'm just suggesting this is a wall with a thicker brush strokes. Then there is still some greenery or something here, so let's take some green and paint some around the way, a vine or something, a branch to show that this is a garden gate not just any gate. Let's add some pink flowers of course. You can see how a little detail can add so much to your painting. Here you can put a date or a code or whatever you want. Thank you so much for joining me in this watercolor warm up. 15. Painting a Branch - Day 10/100: Hey, so it's another day here, a 100 day project is going on. Today we will be painting a simple branch. It doesn't sound like anything complicated because it is a simple branch, but the important part is that we are practicing out of brushstrokes, and it's really great for warm up. We are starting with one simple line and then we'll add another one and another one, add more. You can see the branches are getting smaller and smaller. You can see this is empty here, so we can start another branch right here. Feel free to experiment during warm-ups. It's a good time to experiment with different colors, shapes, can start trying some leaves. We want our branch to be balanced. Let's work on this side now, I pick purple for this warm up, I don't know why I felt like it today. You can pick your own color of course, maybe you're working with ink or other media, it doesn't really matter as long as you're staying creative that's all, it's good to think. Add another one here. This one will also discover what's your brush can do, you start feeding it there, you can see how wide or how little the lines have concrete, you can create, you learn how to hold it so it's most comfortable for you. It seems like a such a simple and relaxing exercise, which it is, but it's also very useful. When you don't know what to paint you can just paint branches. Let's do one more here. I think we're missing something right here. You see it doesn't work the other way or we have to go from the base of the branch to the either part, not the other way around like I did this part. This is our warm up for today. I'm so excited that you are here, thank you for joining me and I will see you tomorrow for the next warm up. Thank you. 16. Days 6 to 10: 17. Painting a Bird - Day 11/100: Hi. Today's warm up is one of my favorite subjects topic, it's a simple bird on the branch. Let's take some brown. Again, don't overthink it. Let's think of just any bird you like. I mixed my brown with a little bit of blue because it was too reddish. I'm starting from the beak. Point a little triangle, and then I dilute it with some water, and with the head, just simple brushstrokes. Don't think about the eye at this point because it's so wet, it will not dry away. Next, let's take some red and maybe some orange. Yes. This is a nice color. Add some here, and I wanted lighter, so let's dilute it with some water, so it'll be pink. It's too dark, so let's dilute with some color. I hope everyone is doing great today and we're having good. One mark, so you can have your creative moment today. Next, I'll do this [inaudible] with more water, paints on this part. I'm not afraid to leave white spaces because it's a part of a plan. Then let's take some of this orange with red, and we'll make a wing. Again, don't be afraid to leave some white spaces implying that there are feathers here like this. Beautiful. Then lets take some more blue with brown which gives us a dark, almost black-brown. We'll add some more feathers. We'll use the same color to paint the tail. The tail is just lines. Everything is just lines, or brushstrokes, or dots. So this is our bird. Let's try to make the eye now. If you have more time, just wait a little longer. I'm done doing it, so it's good. But it would be safer to it a little longer with the eye. So this is our bird and I want to have a branch. The branch we need first to have legs of a bird and then we can have our branch. Let's add some more blue and brown. I don't have space here for it, but this our branch. Nice. Let's add some more details of the dark here, and this wing needs another brushstroke, more round like this. Yes, this is better. We also can add some leaves. Let's mix some green with some blue, and just like this. Again brushstrokes. Another little dark here, some more character to a bird, and maybe a couple red berries to balance the red on the bird. Nice. Another little branch. So this is our warm up for today. I think you enjoyed it and I am looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Bye. 18. Painting a Dandelion - Day 12/100: Hi. I hope you're doing great today and for today's warm up, I picked a dandelion from this vintage book cover. Again, we will be just looking at it and painting it right away. It's a warm up, it doesn't have to be perfect so I'm just taking whatever yellow I have here. Let's add some orange to it. It's greenish but it's okay. As usual, I'll start with flowers from the main part and I'll draw this yellow petals, which are so beautiful. Don't overthink it. Take some more orange. You can see they're going up and down. I don't have much space on my hexagon but may be you have a bigger piece of paper. Now, let's take some green. I want my green to be darker than that because it has to be darker, so let's add some blue to it. For some reason that is brown in my palette. This is blue and mix it with some green because I want some more contrast in these leaves and this green part. I'm trying to avoid the yellow I have but it's okay if I touch some of it. It is just a warm up so it's important to have fun with it. I hope everyone is doing great today and I'm so excited you're here to paint with me. It's a 100 Day Project and it's such a cool art movement for creative sentence, so awesome that you joined. Dandelion, you probably know this but it means the teeth of a lion. I think it's a French, I may be wrong but it definitely means the teeth of a lion because of the shape of the leaf. This is the leaf we're painting. Here we are practicing brush control by painting with shapes and at the same time, watercolor wash. If you are just painting for warm up, it's fine too. It's important to stay creative preferably every day. It's not just about painting, it's about cooking, talking, dancing. This one I went more with pattern than with filling the shape. Why not? Also you can see it has that root here, so it's a botanical illustration. Let's take some brown and mix it with a little bit of green and add that interesting part too [inaudible] and then we'll have black but I usually always would have a ink pen with me so if I need to add some black details, I can add them. Let's add some more lighter yellow petals, just like this so they would look more dynamic. This is our little dandelion. Very cute and little. Thank you for painting with me today. I'll see you tomorrow. 19. Painting a Blooming Branch - Day 13/100: Today for our watercolor warmup, let's paint a blooming branch. I'm taking some dark brown and I want to add some blue to it because it looks too warm. It sounds like there are some repairs outside, so some buzzing. Composition wise, I'm bringing the branch diagonally. So for painting the branches just first you inhale. When you exhale, you would paint, bringing your exhale again to the shape like this. First I'm painting the branch itself, and then we'll be adding for blossoms to it. Let's make this thicker. To make it thicker, we just press over brush harder on paper. Once we made it thicker you can instantly see that this is the main branch and the smaller branches are secondary branches like this. You need some thickness to this branch. Maybe a little one here. Then let's take some magenta and dilute it with a lot of water to get the soft beautiful pink. Next, I'll just add blossoms here and there. They don't need to touch the branch, they can be just floating in the air. It's totally fine. You can see how delicate of a blossom slope because of dark color and the texture of a branch itself. Here works for contrast. You can go even with lighter color, I was just afraid that it won't be visible on the camera, but I think it would be beautiful to go a very soft peach or pink. Of course, they don't have to be perfect. Let's make some petals floating in the air, just like this, it instantly add some dynamic to our little, tiny warmup. Thank you for joining this watercolor challenge, this was our warmup for today. 20. Painting a Windmill - Day 14/100: Hi. I hope you are doing well today. For today's warm up, I wanted to paint with you an old fashioned windmill. Windmills have a lot of details, so I hope we can do it in five minutes. That's our challenge. As always, I'm starting from the main parts, so let's start from the wings of a windmill, so I'm starting with one line like this and a second one. There will be two more, one and two, like this. Let's try to make them all the same length. For the color, I took some orange and it was mixed with some blue writing pen. It often happens with a traveling set, they cost just a little money. I think it brings more character to a painting, so it's okay. Let's add some thickness to one side, make sure it's the same side. I decided to add some thickness on the left over-blades. Next, let's take some cerulean blue. Soon, it starts bleeding, so let's wait [inaudible] cerulean blue. We're just trying to make a circle around this. Let's take the cerulean blue still and mix it with some orange and I get nice purplish-grey. We'll add some more details on our blades or wings with just lines. Again lines. Add squares. This is the wrong side, so this side, the lines and then squares. You can see I'm leaving some lines unfinished, first of all because it's only just a warm up and second I want to keep this little sketchy feel. Then we'll have the building itself in the back. Hopefully the blue won't bleed. It's like a triangle right there, pointy. Nice. Then we'll have this really fond shape, it's like another triangle, right there. Probably [inaudible] isn't why they are tilted this way and then it has some windows, window frames, and then it has some more construction, so it's some wood here. My orange turned green, but it's okay and some more lines which are showing the wood construction on the bottom. Now, let's finish with some brown. I think this is made of stone. This is how an old fashioned windmill looks. I want to take some green and add some grass in here. Today, for our warm up, we've painted an old fashioned windmill. Thank you for joining me. 21. Painting a Butterfly - Day 15/100: >> Hi, hi. How are you doing today? For today's warm up, we'll be painting butterfly. Again, we'll be practicing doing symmetrical shapes. The most important part will be having fun and warming up for a creative day or if it's evening where you are, then I hope you'll just enjoy this short and fun exercise. We are starting from the body. I'm trying to place it in the middle of my hexagon but it may not work. Let's take some purple. I don't have a reference picture so I'll just use our memory. There two antennas right here. I think we need a longer body. Now let's take some magenta and do some symmetrical brush strokes like this. Now let's take some blue, mix it a little bit of magenta and do one line and the second one and another brushstroke and brushstroke. Most important part in warm ups is to keep it fun. Let's take some blue and add two more lines. I like this lines which are on the wings, they're always so beautiful. Now let's add some more definition to the shape. I want it to be wider in here and let's add another brushstroke. See it starts bleeding into the body but it's okay. It's just a warm-up. Add more lines. Okay, finally it starts looking like a butterfly. If yours is not looking like a butterfly, it's okay. I'm not sure if I like this brown, so let's cover it with some blue and it turns into gray which is way better than brown. Add some dots on the antennas [inaudible]. I have all this space down here so let's add some watercolor brushstrokes. Why not? Makes it just flow. It definitely adds some dynamic to our painting. Let's add some more brushstrokes in here too. That may need another line. If yours is so blurred just like mine in here, I wouldn't touch it at this point. Just let it dry and then you can add some details with white gouache or white gel pen. This is our fun warm up for today and thank you for being here and I'll see you tomorrow for another warm up. 22. Days 11 to 15: 23. Painting a Key - Day 16/100: Today our warm-up will be painting a key. If you have a key, you want to paint, you can pick your own or you can just follow along with me and we'll have out of warm-up. I'm picking any color. It happened to be blue. My favorite color. Let's start from this part. This is a great exercise for brush control and to practice painting symmetrical. I think mine is not symmetrical right now. How are you doing today? We are having some creative projects to do today. This warm-up will help you to get in the mood. You can see I am just repeating whatever I see. Some of them are not that great, but it's okay. It's just a warm up. Sure it'll be right. And well, we have this paints. Objects from around the house are a great warm-up because those are the objects you already like. If you need a subject to sketch, just look around the house and find something you like. That will be a good subject to paint. Here we have some lines. You can see we are going monochrome on this one. No highlights or anything, just a shape. When I'll be fixing this shape on the top because we still have time. Here you can make some shapes for this part too. Or if you have some ideas to add, you can add some flowers or branches. I want to fix this part a little bit. I'm making it thicker and adding some more elements which may be too big at this point. This is better. As I said, it's not perfect, but it looks like a key. That's good. It starts from the middle and one starts to build a shape around it line by line. You can see it wasn't perfect at first. It's not perfect, but then we fixed it a little bit. I did, and it looks good and I like it. This is our warm up project for today. I will see you tomorrow. Have a great creative day. Nice evening if it's evening where you are, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 24. Painting a Fern - Day 17/100: Hey guys, so I hope you're doing great today and for today's warm up, I choose to paint a fern. We have one on the table already on a tablecloth. I mean, so why don't we try to paint them. So for the color, I wanted to be grayish with blue. So let's try to make some blue with orange and see. Yes, this is a nice solid color. So we dilute it with a lot of water and make a line, I'm making good diagonally hoping it will look pretty well with the composition. But however, it just warm-up. From here we'll start doing other lines like these and we'll try to keep it symmetrical which I will see when I can't turn on the page. But hopefully you can rotate your arm and at work. And after we have our main shape, we'll just start doing a little leaves. This one is far from perfect, of course. It's a creative warm-up so we'll keep practicing. So just like dress every little branch we painted little leaves and there are all kinds of ferns out there so they come look a little different. All of them look a little different. But it's important so you can read the shape. They think here read the shape. This branches that are little too heap. But it's okay. So if you like ferns, you can try to add them to your floral compositions, in case your painting flowers. I think they are having a nice shape and texture to add to composition. Or if you are painting leaves, nice to add too. So you can see every branch looks like on the main branch just in miniature. So again, we are starting from a longer leaves and they're becoming smaller towards the end. A little bit longer, and smaller, smaller, smaller. It became easier at the end and I hope yours too. Thank you so much for painting with me today. I hope you did and if not what, you're waiting for? Go and get your brush and paint it. It's fun. Thank you so much and this is a 100 day project.Thank you for being here. 25. Painting a Flower - Day 18/100: Hi, I hope everyone is doing great today. For today's creative warm-up, I picked another object from our house. It's this flower. I had it on my mood boards, so I thought, "Hey, its going to be fun to paint it." I'll go monochrome on this one. That's another brown. No, I don't want brown. I'll pick magenta for mine, and you can pick your own colors, of course. As usual, I'm starting from the middle of this flower and I want to paint this flower and I'm not sure if I'll have room for another one but maybe I will, we'll see. Middle is round. This is some brush number six, which I am using for entire challenge and you can see the tip is sharp so I can make this teeny-tiny flower stems or whatever they're called. It's got to be another line art so I'm just painting the shape without filling in with watercolor and again, this has just a warm up so relax and enjoy. I hope you have some creative projects for today, so after warm up, you can just go to your main, important and beautiful projects. Another one. [inaudible] I don't like it open. Whether to warm up or it's a sketch book project, you don't need to know exactly where you're going next and be open to surprises, to some discoveries and treasure your mistakes because mistakes are very important to become more experienced. When we don't make mistakes, we don't grow so just be happy with every mistakes you do because it makes you more experienced in whatever you do of a mistake. Semi circle leaves. I really like with shapes and they are great control exercises so if you have something long, curly and with a lot of details, it's a good subject to paint if you want to practice brush control exercise. What do you think? I don't think I have room for all these flower, but however, I want to fill this space with something so let's add some more of this rococo. Maybe another branch here. At this point you can see we're improvising and I encourage you to do this with every warm up. If you feel like you want to keep painting just keep painting. All right. This is it for today. I really like it and I may even make an artwork in the same style at some point, why not? I am so excited you were here. Thank you so much for coming and I'll see you tomorrow for the next warm-up. 26. Painting a Ginger Jar - Day 19/100: How's everyone today? In today's short video, we're going to paint a ginger jar. A ginger jars are always beautiful. Usually blue and white vases which I really, really admire. If it's not going to be too symmetrical, it's okay. For my ginger jar, I'm mixing some cerulean blue with ultramarine blue and a little bit of violet. When we're painting a monochromatic paintings which have only one color, it's important to have different shades of a same color. It will keep them more interesting. Let's try to make it as symmetrical and not too crooked, but if it will be a little crooked, it's okay. We are starting from the lid, it's a pointy one. Here is the lid. Then I'll have this metal part of the vase on one side and another side. Again, if it's a little crooked, it's okay. Then the bottom is wider again. In art school, they always have exercises for pottery because to paint or to draw pottery it's a very useful exercise because you can train your hand and your eye to draw symmetrical shapes. Next, which will be like brushstrokes and they will be looking like some flourishes. Let's dilute it with more water and keep adding different shades of blue and purple to your mix to keep it interesting. Here let's have some lines and the middle line here. Now, let's add some purple to the mix, and we'll have a big flower here. This is the middle of the flower. We have the petals, big flower. Let's have a little branch, and try to paint bird silhouette. Then draw over some more swirls, some more flowers. [inaudible] just brush strokes, some leaves, more branches. It already looks good. Another is there. More leaves and brush strokes. It is a little crooked, what can I do? This is our little painting for today. Let's add some more dots here. A ginger jar in blue and white colors, like a traditional one. 27. Painting the Almond Blossom - Day 20/100: Hi, how are you doing today? For today's self five-minute project, we'll be painting almond blossom. Let's take some brown and mix it with some magenta, and we need more brown. Usually we'll start painting the middle of the flower. Little lines like this. Next, let's add some more magenta and not too much water to this. I'll paint more lines with little circles at the end. I think we need more magenta, it still looks pretty brown. We have our middle of a flower. I think it looks good. I'll save this next, I'll need it for later. Meanwhile, next let's mix some magenta with a little bit of orange, just a little of it, and a lot of water, we need a really light mix. Try not to touch the middle of a flower. That little paint is very delicate. Bright petals, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Next, let's add a little bit of green into our mix of magenta with brown and paint a branch. Take some more green, and add a couple of leaves, a small ones. Because if almond is blowing, it means it's pink. The leaves are still very little. Obviously they'll branch. Let's have another flower which is sideways so we don't see the middle. Something like this. Then maybe another leaf. A little more red in our leaf. This is our almond blossom, five-minute project. Thank you so much for joining me today. Bye and I'll see you tomorrow. 28. Days 16 to 20: 29. Painting a Dutch House - Day 21/100: Hi. How are you doing today? So for today's warmup, I picked up another object from our house. It's this ceramic house, I brought from Holland. I love it. With objects we like are the best objects to paint or to draw in our sketch books. I'm not sure if I can fit it all on this little hexagon of mine, I picked for 100 day project. But I'll start with this part, which is my favorite, because of a shape of a roof and then I'll see how much of another part we can fit in. I'm starting with the shape of the roof. You probably from the top can see it better than me. You'll have an advantage here. I love Dutch shaped houses and they're so pretty. Again, we're painting fast, and it doesn't have to be perfect. Here we'll be adding more colors, often you'll have time for that, and then there are this long and beautiful windows. For the windows, it would be the best to use a flat brush. Flat brush when you doing [inaudible] straight lines. You are painting a lot of architecture. Just buy yourself a nice flat brush. That's my watercolor tip for today. If you like me, if you're styling everything with one brush, then it should be and why I say it should be numbered four, or number six, about this size. Then you can paint so many things with it. Just make sure the tip is very sharp. All right, I'm talking so much. Let's see, we have two windows here and probably one we have a [inaudible] of our 100 day. But I wanted to paint it so bad. Here we have a roof, my favorite part. Well, what can I say? Somewhat alongside are pretty and some are okay. I hope yours will come out better than mine. Of course, the colors are always setting the situation, just to think that it's blue and white, it instantly gives a feel that this is a Dutch house because of Delta blue and associations we have it. You can see I have less windows. Then there, but there's still quite a bit of a house, which is good. Of course we have this beautiful stores on the first floor of the buildings which I dearly admire. Here are some architectural elements. Something narrow right here. I don't know what is it? This is our Dutch house. and if you have time, you can paint the obvious details too. I can't wait to see you tomorrow for another creative warmup. Thank you for being here. 30. Painting Canterbury Bells - Day 22/100: Hi. For today's daily practice, we'll be painting Canterbury bells. I hope I'm pronouncing it right. Anyway, it's an another flower which looks like beautiful bells. For the flower, we'll mix some violet with a little bit of cerulean blue. We'll add a lot of water to it because the flowers are pretty light. Again, we'll eventually try to go diagonal. Let's paint one flower here. It'll be a top flower. So let it be a bud. It didn't open yet, so it will look like this. Next, let's take some green, sap green, and paint a stem so we understand where it's going. Like this. Let's paint more flowers. One petal, the middle one, and different one. Another one here. I think we need more blue in it. This is too dark, so let's take some out. Now, let's keep painting, 1, 2, and the middle one. I love these flowers. Another one here. You can leave some white inside if you want to. I think this is enough. Now, very careful with green, let's add some stems. Try not to touch a blue, especially if it's still wet. Next, let's take some yellow and add some little yellow dots, which instantly add some magic to your painting. Details are very important. Next, let's add some leaves. I'm taking green and mixing it with some blue stronger palette for radiant. Add the leaf here, one here, and more at the bottom. Let's add a little shadow here. This is our Canterbury bell. Thank you for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 31. Painting Crystals - Day 23/100: Hi, how are you today? For today's five-minute painting, we will be painting some crystals and we'll be adding probably some flowers and little leaves to them. Let's take our emerald green, mix it with a little bit of purple. This is too much purple, let's add some more green. This is very dull glow, so let's add some [inaudible]. This is better, and more emerald green. We ended up with aqua color, and I hope you like it. If not, you can use other colors for crystals. Let's start with crystal top, paint it with some triangle, with the water, we are spreading it as far as we want, like this, and then we left a little highlight here. Next, let's take some magenta and add a little more color to this wet area. Next, let's leave a little bit of edge, and add a line right here. We've aqua blue, we have our item. Let's add another line. For crystals, for them to look real, we need straight competent lines, and also straight competent highlights, like this. You can mix as many colors as you want in there, but make sure they mix well together. I'm adding purple to my aqua, here on the bottom I'm planning to have some greenery or flowers, so I'm leaving it open, and another side. It's in big crystal. Nice. Next, let's take some aqua and add a little bit of yellow to it. The same way, let's paint another crystal right here. Let's add some blue to it, and we have a smaller crystal, to be probably reflecting some of this color, so let's add some purple, and on this side I would like a small magenta, I'll call it crystal. Then some magenta is reflecting here. Next, let's paint a small flower, so I'm making the yellow needle, and take some magenta not very watery and paint some petals. Of course if we would have more time, we would let this dry, and we wouldn't have this muted color as a result. I am adding some more color here with purple, and maybe some purple here too. The last step, let's mix some more emerald green with violet and add some leaves and greenery. Very painted, some branches. These are our crystals and flower for today. I'll see you tomorrow. 32. Painting Corn Flowers - Day 24/100: Hi, and welcome back to our Hundred Day project. In today's painting, it is going to be flowers again. We'll be painting the blue cornflowers. I really like them and I hope you'll enjoy them painting with me. Let's take some ultramarine blue and mix it with some violet. We won't be adding a lot of waters to this mix because we want it pretty dark and thick. Next, we'll now paint the middle of a flower, just small lines like this. For this painting, I want to have one open flower here and another one, which is a side-wise, that's why I'm painting it in this part of the hexagon. Let's leave it for now. Meanwhile, we'll be mixing some cerulean blue with a little bit of this purple and ultramarine mix. But for petals, we'll be adding a lot of water. While this a little dries, I don't think it'll dry lot in five minutes, but meanwhile, let's paint another flower which is a side-wise. So pointy beautiful petals. That's why it's important to have good pointy brush. I think this is enough. Now, let's add some petals to this art show. What we'll be doing will be adding these similar petals around the middle of a flower, but we'll try not to touch the middle and leave some white. If we'll touch it a little bit, it's okay. It's even more beautiful if this, you see how it's blending in here, but not totally touching it. It's very important to have a beautiful blue for this flower. Okay. Now, let's take some green, sap green, and mix it with a little bit of this purple and blue mix, as result this will have a darker green. With little loops, let's paint this green part, and the little leaves here. Then the stem, and the second stem. Also, I'd like to have a bud coming out from here somewhere, pointy one like this. Let's add some leaves. We have a little more time so we can add more darker petals here like this, and maybe some blue to God. This is our blue cornflower today. I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 33. Painting Garlic - Day 25/100: Hi. For today's five-minute warm-up, we'll paint a Garlic. It will help us practice out neutral, mixing neutral colors in the watercolor. Let's take some violet and add some yellow to it. As a result we get the beautiful neutral color, which is gray with a shade of violet. Next to the brush strokes, lets paint a garlic shape, which is almost like a heart-shape but upside down and then with lines, we'll add some texture to it. We'll add more water to our mix to make it lighter and they'll keep [inaudible] lines. Here at the bottom we need to paint darker roots, [inaudible] those roots. Let's take some brown and add to our [inaudible] violet mix and with the tip of a brush, make first some loops and add some lines just a little bit. Next, let's take some of this mix of the gray and add some more lines. It already looks like garlic. To make it more beautiful, let's take some sap green and add some green to the top. I think this shape looks more like onion than a garlic, so let's add some more volume here. Make it wider on the bottom and show off better shape. That's not what I meant. With a clean brush, lets try to take this off if you've got the same mistake. Hopefully, you don't and let's add some shadow to our green, on one side. Okay. We still have some time, so we can add a shadow down here. Why not? Add some more details. This is our garlic and this is our five-minute project, four-minute project for today and I'll see you tomorrow. 34. Days 21 to 25: 35. Painting a Cosmos Flower - Day 26/100: Hi. So for today's five-minute art project, we'll be painting a cosmos flower. I like this flower so much and they come in different colors. One of my favorites are the magenta ones. We'll start from the middle of the flower again, like we usually do for flowers. So I mix the yellow with green and then we'll be painting some little lines like this. Next let's take some more green and mix it with some brown. I set this out, we get this dark olive green. Almost black, you can use black what paints gray. So what I'm doing on making this little lines or dots around the yellow green I just painted. Next let's take yellow and add some yellow green. So now we have a middle of the flower created and we can start painting with petals. You can decide on any color do you want. I'm taking some magenta and brushstrokes, 1,2, 3. I'm painting a petal. Again, 1, 2. So many one and another one, very easy. So two or four, or three or four brushstrokes. Very relaxing. Just like this, a basic beautiful flower. Next we'll take some green, mix it with yellow green that we have here. Paint the stem and some leaves. Again, this are [inaudible]. Add something like this. So it's nothing complicated. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 36. Painting an Icelandic Poppy - Day 27/100: For today's bite-size art project, let's paint an Icelandic Poppy. Let's start from the middle. Let's mix some yellow with some green. I think we need more yellow to green. We have beautiful lines when painting this middle of a flower. Maybe it's too big, but it's okay. Next, let's mix some green with a little bit of ultramarine blue for a dark green. I'll try not to touch what we painted before, and I'll add some little lines almost like dots on the top. For Icelandic Poppy, we need very delicate petals. Let's take some of this red-orange, add some magenta to it, and a lot of water. Again, be very careful not to touch the green middle, just leave some white around it and we'll have these beautiful big petals. These lines on the petals show the texture of the petal, and the Poppies are known for this textured lined petals. Here we'll have another petal and this one will look in here. Add some more lines where it's already dry. Very painted layer, and so beautiful. You can see how I avoided to touch this green because if I touch it, let's touch it a little bit here so you can see it instantly bleeds into the flower. Okay, I did it. Next, let's take some green and add the stem, and some leaves. Leaves are almost like of a dill, however, different Poppies got different leaves so maybe it's not too accurate. Just have fun with the leaves the way they are flowered. Even if they are different from mine, it's okay. It will still be beautiful. This is our Icelandic Poppy, our five minute project for today. Thank you so much for joining and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 37. Painting a Lemon - Day 28/100: Hi. I hope you are doing good today. For today's five-minute painting, we will be painting a lemon on the bench. Let's take some lemon yellow and paint, a lemon. If your yellow is too light, then add just a little bit of violet to it. I will be doing it in a second. Here's our lemon, fruit a very little one. Next step, let add some violet show out yellow. Violet and yellow are complementary colors, that's why to darken the yellow will are adding to it violet. We'll add a little bit in here. If it's too much, we can add a little more yellow and hopeful, it will mix nicely. We don't want it to be too brownish there so it doesn't look that calm. Yellow is going bad or something. Just to let on it, and on the top I would like to add a little bit of green. Looks fresh and less. Whenever we have the light where we have light will have a more diluted water color and where we have a shadow, we'll have more paint and so why look at also quadrotor color? Next, let's take some brown. This is to write a shovel novelist allow shake of, basal insulin is better and we'll add a little bit of watermelon Baruch to it to make it a little cooler, more neutral and more [inaudible] and dropped some water in here. Next, I want to touch her lemon, so brown doesn't dilute into yellow. I'll just make a branch like this when creative, so it probably doesn't grow like this part. This is RP engine so we can do it. We have the branch, and next we can add some leaves, of course. Let's take some green, put it on water first and beautiful bright leaves, like these. It will be nice to add a leaf next to the laminate itself and just be careful not to touch the lemon. It's probably still wet. But you couldn't touch a little bit on branch. Next, let's add some ultramarine blue to show our green, and then add the little bit of shadows to the leaves on the lower part of the leaf like this. This is our five-minute painting for today. Thank you for joining me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 38. Painting Sweet Peas - Day 29/100 : It's another day in a 100 Day Project and for today's five-minute art project, we'll be painting sweet peas flowers. We'll start with the stem. I'm taking some sap green and let's paint a stem like this. Then this is a tricky one. Sweet peas have these swirls, when they grow. You can do it something like this. You don't have to be too precise enough. Here we'll have our small unopened flower, so we are painting a green part like this. Here we'll have another flower, a bigger one, but it also needs a green part. Then let's have another flower here.The flowers will be pink, so let's take some magenta, dilute it with water. First, we'll paint this little bud. However, make sure you're not touching the green area. Next, let's paint this flower. Just press some brush onto paper, and this flower like this. Because of the shapes of the flower's petal look like, what are they suppose to look? They look like sweet peas flowers. I'm extending some magenta with violet and I'm trying to add some shadows or more dimension. Because we've got more time too, we can do it. Something is going on outside. Next, let's add some more leaves. Say one here, a round one, and one here. Why not? To add shadows to the stems, we need to mix green with ultramarine blue. I'll set this out to get them beautiful dark green and we'll add some shadows to the leaves, add some thickness here, add shadows to the stems and to flowers. That's sweet peas flowers. I think they're very beautiful and they smell amazing. Thank you for painting with me today. Bye. 39. Painting a Swan - Day 30/100: How is everyone doing today? For today's five-minute painting, let's hope it will be only five minutes. We will be painting a swan. For such a small painting of a swan, I would normally take a small little brush. But because we said, we'll be painting with one brush, during this challenge. I'm still using number six. This is called a brush. What I'm doing, I'm mixing cerulean blue with some orange. This is called a shade of orange to get a beautiful gray. Then next, I'll be painting upper part of the swan. Let's hope I'll get it right, because I have only one try. This is good and then I'll paint the neck and a small head with the tip of a brush. You can make it lighter if you want. But add more water to your mix. Here I'll have the wing like this. When I soak with a little bit of water from this part so it will dry faster before we'll start painting the swans beak. We'll, let it dry a little, meanwhile we'll be painted more feathers with brushstrokes. If your paintings are taking longer than five minutes, it's Okay. It's normal because you are watching and painting, not just painting. If you'll be painting this the second time, it would take probably five minutes. But now you can pause if you need or you watch. Here is the tail. So you can see how with just brush strokes, we can instantly add a texture. Next, let's paint an eye. We need thicker mix of paint for the eye for more precision and darkness. So let's make some more blue with orange and don't add too much water. Here is the eye and the beginning of the nose. While that is drying a little bit, we can add some greenery or flowers on the bottom here. Let's take some cerulean with a little bit of green and mix it with this gray we had here. Add some leaves like these. You can play more and then watch our leaves or flowers or berries, whichever you want. Next we'll take some red or orange-red, mix them both together, and we'll add just a little line here. This is our swan. Thank painting with me today. 40. Days 26 to 30: 41. Painting a Columbine - Day 31/100: Hi. How are you doing today? For today's five-minute painting, we will be painting a columbine flower. Another flower. I want my columbine flower to be a purple magenta with purple. I'm mixing magenta with purple to make purple warmer. We'll start from the flower, and then after we'll be painting the leaves and the stem. I want the flower to be somewhere here composition-wise. I'm starting with the top up parts of the petals, which are curly. Then I'm going down like this. Again the top part, and then down like this. Looks like a pretty big flower already for this hexagon, but it's okay. Again, the [inaudible] part is curling, and then we have a big part of the petal. Once again like this, and like this. This is our main flower. Next it also has an inner part, so let's make it orange. But very very careful. Right here in-between will show it, just a little bit. Like this. Add some dots. I'm going to add some more magenta to it, so it doesn't look like [inaudible] bells. Looks more pinkish, like this. Next let's take some soft green, mix it with a little bit of this purple on our plate, and let's paint the stem. A deep breath, and here we go. Blending did not meet though, but it's okay. From here we'll have another stem coming with little leaves. Here we'll have a leaf, and here maybe another stem with some leaves. Here let's add a bud, which is still green. It's hidden. Here let's add some leaves. Let's take some more purple with magenta. I'd like the columbine to have another leaf coming in there and another flower here. It's still pretty closed. Of course, we need to add another top for this petal. Maybe another petal here. I'm not sure it looks like a classic columbine, but hopefully it does. Thank you so much for painting with me today and in this challenge. I hope to see you tomorrow. Bye. 42. Painting a Watering Can - Day 32/100: Hi, how are you doing today? For today's five minute painting, we will be painting a watering can. I want my watering can to be green. I'll take some sap green and I'll mix it with a little bit of ultramarine blue to give it a different shade. You can pick any color you like for your draw watering can. Next I will be painting the main shape, like this and to keep it more interesting, let's add some a little bit of flourishes here. Let's make a frame like this and then we can color around it. While we are coloring we can add some more blue or more green to make some variety of colors in our water color wash. It always makes water color wash more interesting. That is your tip for today. We have our base. Here lets have a white line, this edge, and one more. Next let's set this part. You can see I'm just dragging the paint from the main part but if you're already drawn it, you can just pick more paint. Let's add some dots here. Looks better. Looks like a watering can. Next, let's decide where we want the handle. I think I want it on the side and not on the top. I think I want to add another layer here, maybe in blue. I think we need an inscription here, some fillers or hello or whichever you want. What is missing are flowers I think. Let's make some cerulean blue with green and some branches and flowers. I'm starting with branches and then [inaudible]. Am trying to make a different type of green, that's why I mixed some cerulean, so it doesn't look like exactly the same green as we used for the watering can. This is too much water, so we need to absorb it but we are not going for perfection here, so it's okay. Last, let's add some flowers with brush strokes. This are very stylized flowers you see on the stamp and more stamps. I think this is enough for today. You can keep painting if you want to. This is our watering can and five-minute painting or about five minutes. Thank you so much for painting with me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 43. Painting a Portulaca Flower - Day 33/100: Hi, and welcome to another five-minute project. Today so what we'll be painting a portulaca. It's dainty, beautiful flower, which grows around here, and I just think it's very pretty. Let's start with a middle of the flower. With the yellow. Just some lines like this. Next after yellow let's add some violet, and some magenta. I said it's hard to get this [inaudible] color. Let's add some more lines. Next to the lines we just got. So this is the middle of our flower. Next, portulacas come in different colors. However, for mine I'd like this yellowish-orange and the petals are so pretty and they're so delicate. So, they're almost like got little poppy petals but way smaller. Some painting go over petals just with brush strokes, and I'm trying not to touch the middle of a flower just leaving it white. Just like this, and some parts of portulaca have more petals. So after it drys you who can come back and add more petals and there will be see-through. For now this is enough petals for our project. Next will take some green, and we'll mix into with this burgundy we had before. Paint the stem, and the leaves of the portulaca are very interesting. They're almost like succulent, this point here. Paint here, beautiful green with a little bit of burgundy. So let's paint some of this burgundy, and paint more leaves. Let's add few dots of this green to the middle of a flower, to give the painting balanced. Next we can add a darker orange. Just a little bit here and there. So this our five-minute project for today. Thank you for joining me, I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 44. Painting a Pomegranate - Day 34/100: Hi, how are you doing today? For today's watermark, we'll be painting a pomegranate on a branch. I like pomegranates and I think they're very beautiful. I'm taking magenta, on my fruit, pomegranate fruit and I'll mix it with some red. We need it to be darker. Let's add some green shade. It could be emerald green or just a regular green. Sap green, let's say some emerald green, I think it's sap green. We'll add a little bit of emerald green then it makes it darker. Let's paint a fruit here. First we're painting incomplete circle, like this. Here we'll be editing of this unique shape for pomegranate and gets wherever flower it was. Beautiful. To add some dimension to it, we can add a little bit of emerald green chamois mix, this is a little [inaudible]. Add some shadow right here, and then a little bit on here. You can see it is unclear, gives it some dimension. Next what we'll do, we'll take some grout, mix it with this color we had here, burgundy, and we'll paint a branch. It would be better if I would go this direction. Too late now, next time. We still have plenty of time and we can add some leaves to it. Let's take some sap green. This has made it bright so we'll mix it with burgundy mix we had on a plate. You can see how I'm combining the colors we already used with new colors. In this way, we get color scheme, which works because each color has a little bit of another color we used in it. Let's add some leaves. While the leaves are still wet, we can take some ultramarine blue and add a little bit of shadow to every leaf, like these. Maybe add some blue a little bit of shadow, all over the branch. Nice. This is our five-minute painting for today, and if it takes you longer, it's okay. Just pause and keep painting or you watch it. Thank you for painting with me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 45. Painting a Dog Rose - Day 35/100: Hi, I hope you're doing well today. For today's five-minute painting, we will be painting a dog-rose. I also call it wild rose. It's a rose where it has not as many petals as a traditional rose. We'll start with the middle of the flower as usually, and I'm mixing some yellow with golden orange. Make some lines like this. We can add some darker round dots a little later. Dog-roses are very light, but some pink. I'm taking some magenta. Let's add that little bit of orange to it. I'm diluting it with a lot of water. Paint one petal. They are heart-shaped, but because they're not flat, they have dimension. Petals look not exactly heart-shaped when we look at them from certain angles. Don't be afraid to leave some white space. Try not to touch the middle of the flower. The edges are curly, the edges of the petals. Let's make six petals, and this one will be curled all the way up like this. Let's let it dry a little bit, and meanwhile we can paint the stems. We'll take sap green, we'll mix it with a little bit of magenta. Again, and trying not to touch other flower. We got this brown. I would like it to be with more green. I might take more green. Now, we have a stem. You can see for a better color story, we're agent where magenta into green. Our colors are cohesive. I'm making this stem for a little long leaf. Next, I start painting leaf with brush strokes. You can see both has red and green in it like olive green. A little leaf here and one leaf here. Just try to add a little more magenta on our leaf. Let's mix magenta with a little bit of green, and add a little bit of shadows. Not so much, just around here. The last touch, we need the rose hip somewhere here with a green stem, of course. This is our five-minute painting for today. Thank you so much for joining and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 46. Days 31 to 35: 47. Painting a Mushroom - Day 36/100: Hi, for today's five-minute paint, we will be painting a mushroom. A whimsical one which is red with some white dots. I like those kind of mushrooms, they really exist. I think they grow even here where I live. Maybe not. Never seen them here, but I know they do exist. I'm mixing orange with red and some magenta to get a deeper red. But I still think we need a little bit of subgreen. It's not looking too bright. I'll start with the shape, a hat. Then let's decide where we'll have white spots. At first you can blend more white spots because you can always cover them later. Of course, you can add more with white ink, white wash. You can see the spots don't have perfect round shape are different. While still white, let's add some orange. We'll have a variety of a red hues in our mushroom. Most important just enjoy the process. If you feel like there are too many white spots, I'll just color some of them. We can leave more on one side or the rest on the other side something like this. Make sure we leave enough space for our stem, for our mushroom black. For the stem, let's make some cerulean and blue with red-orange. Because we need a beautiful watermark gray that is diluted with water. Let's add some orange to it to make it warm. This is good. Next, to every tip of a brush add enough water. We have a tip of a brush, I'll paint a shape of a stem. I'll continue tiny lines with my gray. I can have a little sprout here, and maybe some lines going on top here too. This line has to fix some absorb the excess of paint. We have a brush and here too. Let's mix some green with red, and add a little bit of shadow on the bottom. Show them on the bottom of hat. Next, we need some green on the bottom here. Let's mix some subgreen with ultramarine blue and a very short brush strokes. Let's get some more water. We can paint the moss or whichever surface. I don't think it's grass it's probably moss. I think it's adorable. Thank you so much for painting with me today, and I'll see you tomorrow for another five-minute painting. Bye. 48. Painting a Fish - Day 37/100: Hi, I hope you are doing great today. For today's five-minute painting, we'll be painting a fish. We'll be painting a monochromatic one. This is where we'll focus on brush control because again we need to have pretty symmetrical shape on the top and on the bottom. I'm taking my favorite silken blue and it's a bright one. First we'll paint an arch, like this. One on the bottom. Why we are so good with brush control exercise because we'll be adding some patterns. Right here, depending on how time it will take us. Whenever we are adding patterns with our brush, we're learning how to control it better. We'll learn how much water and how much paint we need and how our brush behaves in different situations. Here is an eye on the top. Not sure how this is called and on the bottom. This has a whimsical imaginary fuse. Here's some, just use your imagination how to decorate it. I'll just go with scales and painting scales is always a good exercise. You can make them bigger or smaller. Just relax and take your time. Then in each scale you can add a dot or a line. Or in some of them you can add it and some you just leave as they are and it'll bring it to a totally different pattern. You can use a smaller brush for this too if you want to. This is very easy and at the same time it's very useful. Its a very good exercise for brush control. Nice and here we'll add some lines. In some scales we can add some dots. You can see how the pattern is instantly changing, becomes more interesting. A smile. This is our little fish for today. Thank you for joining me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 49. Painting a Protea - Day 38/100: Hi, welcome back to 100 Day Project. With today's art project, we'll be painting a tropical flower, Protea. We'll start with the stem, it will be going this direction. Let's take some green, mix it with a little bit of magenta. It should be more green than magenta. Let's paint a stem. Protea has a pretty fixed stem, and it may have some bumps on it. No worries if it looks a little crooked, it's totally fine. Next, let's add some blue to our green, and I'll start painting the leaves. One leave will be right on the top, and from it a flower will show up. This is one leaf. Let's add some more blue to the color. This is another leaf, one more here, maybe one here, and one here. This is enough, but now let's paint the flower. The flower is usually surrounded by leaves, so let's paint another leaf to frame our flower. Petals are magenta colored, or red colored, or sometimes they're orange. Let's make some red, orange, with magenta and a little bit of green. I'm trying not to touch the green from the leaves. The petals are pointy. Let's add some more magenta in the mix. Careful with the water. I touched the green so I hope it won't bleed or at least won't bleed too much. We have this stunning pointy petals, let's add some lines for the texture. Next, it has more petals in the middle, and it has a very interesting top. Let's paint at the top. Let's take some more violet and mix it to this mix of flowers magenta and orange. With small brush strokes, we'll start painting little lines to show the middle of this beautiful flower like this. Don't forget to leave wide spaces, otherwise you'll lose the texture. Now it looks like a Protea flower. If you have more time, add more lines to these petals. This is our project for today, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 50. Painting a Chocolate Plant - Day 39/100: Hi, I hope you're doing good today. For our five-minute painting we will be painting a chocolate fruit and it'll be on a branch. Chocolate fruit is brown, orangey, golden brown, I'd say color. Let's mix some brown with orange. I've got an orange. First we'll paint this shape, and then we'll add another slice right here and another one right here. While we're painting we can add other colors into our fruit to make the water gourd wash more interesting, so I'm adding some more golden orange. However, I don't want to lose this lines, so I'm keeping some white and some darker brown like this. Because the wash is still wet, we have this beautiful soft transitions. Because we don't have a lot of time, I'm trying to create these lines into one layer. Because if we would have more time, we could add the lines later. This is our chocolate fruit. It's pointy and it has this our lines. I hope I showed it well. It's not that I can see a chocolate fruits often, but I think they're very beautiful. Here will be the branch. I just took the same orangey brown for the branch. Chocolate plant has this beautiful big leaves. This is what we'll be painting next, we'll have a leaf, let's have it here. I'm pressing my brush onto the paper once and another side, and again. I'm just shaping the leaf any direction I want. Let's paint one more here. I think it looks absolutely delicious with browns and greens. Let's add some blue to our green to add some shadowing on the leaf, and if we're lucky, we'll add some lines too if it's dry enough. Just a little bit. Also I'd like to make of a branch a little thicker, so I mix in some brown with blue, let's add some thickness and shadowing at the same time. [inaudible] an extra line right here, maybe a little branch right here. This is our chocolate fruit on the branch. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 51. Painting a Compass Rose - Day 40/100: Hi. How are you doing today? Today is going to be another monochromatic painting where we will be practicing our brush control. I will be painting a compass rose. Again, I pick color blue, you can choose any color you want. We'll start by painting a circle. Somewhere in the middle of your hexagon. If you are painting your hexagons. Next, we'll have the top arrow, the south arrow. It's nothing complicated but it really helps you to get to know better your brush. East and west. Next, let's divide this in half with a line. I didn't do a very good job but I hope you are doing better. If you have a very detailed painting that's a hint for bigger paintings. The more details you have, the bigger the paper you should use. So next we are coloring the half of each your arrow. Like this. Not too symmetrical but I think it's close. Let's make this circle more round as possible and put another dot in the middle. Let's paint more needles. Again, this is not about perfection it's more about practicing brush control. Again. One more line in the middle of each arrow. This one didn't come out so good. Some more lines on the sides, like filling with a pattern. Like this. Next, it's time to write the letters. Writing the letters is also very good brush control exercise. North, south, east, and west. Let's add a little bit of circle and now it's not complicated, but just try. Nobody is judging and nobody's watching. Like this. This is our compass rose. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 52. Days 36 to 40: 53. Painting a Fennel - Day 41/100: Hi. Another day of our challenge is here, and today we'll be painting a fennel. In the fennel, we'll combine everything we learned from painting garlic and whatever we learned when we were painting very first herbs. First, we'll mix some yellow with purple to get a yellow neutral color. We'll dilute it with a lot of water, and add a little bit of some green to it. Just like we painted a garlic, but it'll be a little tilted. We start with very fine lines. I hope you can see them. This is one side, and now, symmetrically, we'll do the same thing on another side. Let's add a little more green, and repeat, and on this side. Next, let's take more green and we'll start painting the stems. You see from these cell corners which are, these edges which are left, each of them will have a stem with some greenery on it, here they come. We'll assume its stem goes higher, so we won't finish it. It's like a little sketch, and the next one. Very easy, yet beautiful. Our last one. Feel free to turn your paper any way you're comfortable. Once again, we are practicing wet into dry technique and brush control exercises. Of course we're having fun. I'm adding some more of these brighter green lines to the bottom part. Next, let's mix some violet with a little bit of yellow and add some little bit of roots here. Maybe a little bit of green, why not? This is our fennel for today, five-minute project. I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 54. Painting an Abstract Pattern - Day 42/100: Hi, welcome back to our 100 day challenge and today's five-minute painting is going to be a very easy one. We will be painting small pattern. Patterns are fun and easy, and you can find a lot of uses for them. You feel like creating them. Today I'll show you how I would create a very easy watercolor pattern. Let's take any color you like to do. I'm taking some magenta. We'll start by painting arches. One arch, second and one more. Between these two arches, I'll paint another one. I'll try to make them all the same. This is the main secret trick and challenging, two here. This is our little long start for the pattern. Next, let's take another color. I'll take [inaudible] blue. Let's mix it with violet for a beautiful bright blue. Next, let's add a another shape to our border. This diamond shape. Not to all of them, just some to keep it interesting. You can add any other shape, it can be a triangle, it could be any shape you like. Let's add one here, and see what happens. Yes, this is good. Let's take one more color, so let's say a little bit of green, mix it with a little bit of blue. Notice the result we have this beautiful what it requires. Let's add some lines. This is some abstract pattern. I feel I want more blue to it, so we can add a wave here and there. This one looks too dark because it has too much paint so a little bit excess. Let's add another color of yellow green and then some circles. I think this is fun. This is another good exercise to come up with shapes and try them to paint them all the same. This is our short art project for today, and thank you for joining me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 55. Painting a Gazebo - Day 43/100: Hi, welcome back to our challenge and in today's five minute project, we will be painting a gazebo. I want my gazebo to be green. I'll take some sap green, mix it with some ultramarine blue to make it darker. I will start from the top. My gazebo will have a cupola so let's paint four lines. These two in the middle are little longer and then connect them. On the top it'll be round. You'll paint some lines and they'll have a little tip like that. Next we'll have a round roof. [inaudible] Some structural lines here. A little bit curved and then it'll have more lines like this. I feel like we need more thickness to these lines. This is good. Next I'll have these beams, a thicker one like this. Let's paint one here and symmetrically one here. More color green and ultramarine blue. You, of course, can pick another color you'd like. Let's put another beam here and one here. Here we'll have a base coming like this. Here let's have some arches. For this entrance we'll have another big arch. Here we'll have some lines, maybe some like these too, to make it more interesting. I feel like we need a line here too. The beams on the back will probably show through here and here. I don't want to add more in this wide space. I don't want to add any more lines because I really like it like this so I think this is enough. This is our nice green gazebo. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 56. Painting the Moon and a Star - Day 44/100: Hi, welcome to 100th day challenge, and for today's five-minute project. We will be painting moon and stars, this is another brush control exercise, fun and very useful. Let's mix some [inaudible] blue with some purple, that's the result. We have this beautiful dark yet, bright blue. So first what we'll do, I'll paint the moon. This is a pretty young moon so it'll be very little. So take your time with a moon because it's easier said than done. So I painted an arch, and now I'm just taking it very slow, you can see how beautiful this blue is. Now we have excess of paint and water here, so I dry my brush in a paper towel and taking out the excess of the paint and water. Otherwise it will create unnecessary texture on our moon. This is good. Next, let's paint this dot right here, and again, take your time. So here we've painted three points and two more. Start some very good brush control exercise. So if you have time you can paint more stars and practice. So this is our star, and lets paint some arrays, it's also challenging because it has to be straight. If it doesn't come perfect, it's okay. [inaudible] So we have a shining star, and next let's add some clouds here. Just like this, paint it arch after arch. Say if you have time, try to paint more stars smaller and bigger. So this our five-minute project for today. Thank you so much for painting with me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 57. Painting a Thyme - Day 45/100: Hi. How are you doing today? For today's five-minute project we will be painting a Thyme herb. For Thyme herb, we'll be combining everything we learned when painting branches. Let's take some sap green. I'll have a stem going diagonally in a diagonal composition. I'll have another branch, and another one. You can make some more yellow or blue to your green to have a variety of hues in your watercolor wash. I think this is enough branches, because now we'll start painting leaves. I'm not sure if I'll have enough time to fill them all with leaves. Let's make a mix of green and the blue to have a variety of greens. I'll have a lot of little leaves. We have pointed but pretty round and then pointed. Thyme is a beautiful plant, and a delicious herb. We have a lot of leaves, Ill add a few more here. But also I want to paint some flowers, because it belongs in this lilac color flowers, which are also beautiful. We'll see if we have more time, we'll add some more leaves in here. But for now, let's make some violet. We have a little bit of magenta, and a lot of water. Let's paint some flowers here. One flower, the second, and the third. You see, I'm painting colors just in little brush strokes. Then we'll have flower buds, which will be just like little circles. Now in between the flowers, we need to fill the space with green. Just be better very careful because they're wet, or you can wait until they dry. Or Just leave some wide space in between like I do. Add more leaves. This is our Thyme five-minute project for today. Thank you so much for painting with me. I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 58. Days 41 to 45: 59. Painting a Chili Pepper - Day 46/100: Hi, welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a hot chili pepper. We will start to have a pepper itself and let's take some red. We can add a little bit of orange to it, and just we'll start by painting the shape. We'll try to give some wide highlights. I want my chili pepper to be a little bit wrinkled so that's why I'm not drawing straight, crescent moon shape. The shadow will be on the bottom so we'll have more watery mix on the top and more orange. I don't know if I can keep this highlight so probably we'll just paint the entire. Let's make it a little longer like this. I'm taking out some of the paint on the top to create just a little bit of highlight. Next into the red, let's make some sap green a little bit. So as a result, we are getting a darker red. Red and green are complimentary colors. To get a darker, beautiful red when you turn a drop of green to it. On the bottom of the pepper, I am add in this dark, almost burgundy red, and I'm afraid its too dark so let's try to add some moderate into it, orange on the painting. I think it looks beautiful. I'm darkening here on the top next to the future green. I think it already looks good. Let's change a shape a little better here. Next, lets take some green, sap green, and a little bit of red we had already added to it. So you see how [inaudible] we are creating a color harmony by adding one color into another and back. It's bleeding into the red so let's try to create a wider gap here if it's not too late. Here I want to have a little leaves coming out. They're also dark so let's take out some paint by drying the brush into a paper towel and now we can see a more beautiful green, and the same on this side, one little leaf. Let's fix this part just a little bit. That sounds like my neighbor's car. Okay. Sorry about that. Let's add a little leaf here and the car stopped, thank God. Because we've got some more time, I might add a little leaf here and a bit of shadow on our green with ultramarine blue. So this is our hot chili pepper. Five minute painting for today. Thank you so much for joining and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 60. Painting a Balcony - Day 47/100: Welcome back to our watercolors challenge. Today we will be painting a terrace balcony. We will be focusing more on a balcony than on the window behind it. It's a great a brush control exercise. Let's mix some violet with a little bit of yellow. This is another exercise to practice symmetrical brushstroke. Let's paint two alliance, which will show where the balcony starts and ends and mine are already crooked. You can see that it doesn't have to be perfect. Of course i didn't do it in purpose, but it is what it is. I'm making a little dotted line to show the middle. Then I'm starting to paint the right side, and then the left side. I think we need more of this, so purple with yellow mix. Next we'll have one swell right here. Like this and of course one symmetrically on another side, as symmetrical as possible. Then they're going here, and this way. We'll have some flowers, forged flowers like here. Two more swells on the sides. Then more connecting lines. Looks like something is missing here. Let's add two more swells. Maybe this is not the most beautiful long balcony in the town of Paris but it's ours. Let's add some water lines. I'm trying to even the tones because somewhere we have more water and somewhere we have more paint. Slowly it starts to looking as a balcony. Let's add some more lines here. Yes, this is better. Next, I'll paint small a window here. Well, it's a door, but I won't show the bottom part, like this. This is window frame. Again, you see it doesn't have to be perfect, just a sign of a window. Here we'll have a cartouche, which is an architectural element and just hints of a wall. I think we need a few more lines here to show. Yes, so this is our french balcony, the painting for today. Thank you so much for joining and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 61. Painting a Coral - Day 48/100: Welcome back to watercolor challenge, and today is a easier drawing, painting and we'll be exercising brush control. We will be painting corals. Red corals. I'm taking just red color and diluting it with water. By drawing different proportions of water and paint, we'll start painting. Pretty much like branches but shape's a little bit different. This is a very relaxing, yet beautiful exercise. This one, just try to relax, and see where the brush is leading you, and make your lines a little wobbly like this. It's nothing complicated. Very relaxing, yet beautiful. On some can be thicker, on some can be thinner. It can branch in different ways. You can see how I'm doing these wavy moves. In the branch, we'd usually leave the end of the branch will be very fine and in the coral we are leaving the end of the branch thick. It's nothing complicated. We will do as many as we can, during five minutes. You can see you can keep painting in any direction you like. Just take from where you left [inaudible] with this challenge. Keep painting in the direction you like and you can stop at any point too, and just pick a different branch. You can try to paint them in different colors too, or any different colors to your red. Make them like a rainbow. Whenever we are painting we are, [inaudible] painted a ton rainbow colors so you can do the same with the corals and just adding different and different colors. This is our coral painting. Thank you so much for joining me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 62. Painting a Watermelon - Day 49/100: Hi. How are you doing today? Welcome back to our watercolors challenge. Today, we will be painting a piece of watermelon. Because I want to paint the seeds on the watermelon, we will start with the red part and we'll hope that it will dry fast enough for us to paint the seeds, and they don't get in. What we'll do, we'll mix some magenta with red and with a lot of water, and we'll paint a big triangle. It's very important to add enough water so that the watermelon looks saffron. It's also better to mix two different reds to make the watercolor wash more interesting. Like we did here, we mixed the red with magenta. This is our cone. Next, to make it to dry faster, let's rinse our brush, dry it a paper-towel, and try to take out the excess of water. Today is a pretty dry day, so we hope it will dry by the time we paint the other element. Meanwhile, while this is drying, we need to make this edge not as sharp. Again, we are rinsing our brush, we're drying it in the paper towel, and we're trying to soften this edge over water now. Something like this. You can see we are getting some texture from watercolor, and it's totally fine because this kind of texture is suitable for watermelon. You can see how we gradually diluted the paint into the white. Next, let's take some sap green and add a little one. Yes. Again, we'll soften this into that direction now, so we don't have a hard transition like this. Next, let's take some sap green and mix it with ultramarine blue to get a darker green. Do not dilute it with too much water because we need a dark peak green, like this. Now, it looks like fresh watermelon, it's just missing the seeds. Today, we're practicing with the watercolor washes, wet into dry technique, and the brush control. For the seeds, let's take some brown, and to make it darker, let's add some ultramarine blue to it. Not too much water, just a little bit, so it has to be a pretty thick paint. Let's add some seeds. If your watermelon is not dry yet, just wait a few more minutes. Pause it, get a glass of juice or something, and come back, and then, add the seeds. Because otherwise, they won't hold the shape and they would enter the red. This is good. For the final, we can add some splashes of red pink. This is our five-minute painting for today. Thank you so much for joining me, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 63. Painting a Chinese Lantern - Day 50/100: Welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a Chinese lantern. We'll start from the top. I'll paint a line. Then it has a beautiful knot. We'll paint a little loop like this. Then two more, like this. Then exactly the same shape, just upside-down. I'll add just a few more lines in the middle because I've painted the gateway we could have gone. I show it. I still want it to look like a knot, a golden thread. A dot here. Then I've got all the Chinese dot into the top of the lamp part it's because I've painted everything and it gotten so low. This is the top of the lantern. Let's add some more violet toward orange so it looks more golden with orange. Yes, this is better. Next, let's take some red and I'll start from the middle. I want to mix it out with more water. No touching from the top. I'm leaving white spaces and between a figure segment like this so that they look like calm crescent moons. The same way on the left side, like this. A little but it looks like a lantern. However, we still need the bottom part. We fix this side a little with some parts a little bit. Again, we'll take some orange with a little bit of violet. A little more violet. This is too much. Next we'll have another golden thread with little bead, and the tassel. Lets make the tassel red. Just some lines with the tip of your brush. So this is our Chinese lantern painting. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 64. Days 46 to 50: [Music] 65. Painting a Parrot - Day 51/100: Hi. Welcome back to our weather colored challenge. Today we will be painting a parrot. It's another bird. You know how much I like birds. This is a little challenging work. Could be challenging, so just don't be too harsh on yourself if it doesn't come out as perfect as you want. We are starting from the belle. I mixed a little bit of orange with a drop of, I've got something here, violet. This is the belle I painted. Next I'll take some red and without touching the belle. Let's paint the head. Just a line. Next we'll have a wing right here and on the head I want to leave a white space but now we can always cover it, but for the eye. Will be a space for the eye. You can see my paint is pretty fake, and gives me enough control to shape the bird the way I want. Here we'll have a second part of belle. Let's not fill that part with red. Then I will have a beginning of a wing right here, and I'll have a front right here. Something like it is. On the top of head I would like to have some feathers coming like this. Next let's take some brown and mix it with blue. Then paint the eye. Yes, it looks good. Next I'll take some green. Once again, I will mix it with little bit of blue, and I will start painting some feathers. I want it to be brighter, so let's add some cerulean blue strip. Yes. Don't be worried about the white spaces. They're beautiful. Lets now have a little bit of wings shown here. The rest of our favorite I want to be blue, so I'm leaving the white space. However, here I would like to have a green tail. Let's add some brush strokes here. Next, let's add the branch. Nice. With blue we will add the rest of the elements, so I'm taking cerulean blue. Maybe I'll add a little bit of green from parrot [inaudible]. Here we have the wing, and here we'll have the tail, the rest of the beak and of the feet. Add a little bit of red on tail. This is our parrot. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I will see you tomorrow. Bye. 66. Painting an Ice Cream - Day 52/100: Hi, welcome back to our watercolor, challenge. In today's video, we will be painting ice cream cone. Let's take some orange yellow and mix it with a little bit of violet. This is too much, it's too dark. Let's take some more orange yellow. This is a nice golden color. First what we'll do will paint a triangle. This is ice cream cone. It will have a border right here. Then we'll start painting the lines, with the tip of our brush. Now, why does it some are thick and some are thinner? It's okay, just a warm-up. This is a ice cream cone, this line is not just straight. We can fix it a little bit. Next, let's paint the ice cream itself. I want my ice cream to be pink. It's roseberry or strawberry ice cream with white. This is another good exercise for brush control. I'm taking some magenta and diluting it with water. I start painting the ice cream itself like this one brush stroke. This is the kind of ice cream which is like soft ice cream. I like it and I brush through. Looks like my ice cream is SketchUp and crooked, so let's move it in that direction. You can paint it as tall as you want. You feel like a different ice cream like pistachio or lemon or chocolate, you can try different colors. Here on top I want to leave space for berry, or orchid, or some round berry. Let's dry the brush a little and take out this paint and fix our shape just a little bit. Make it little thicker here to balance so it doesn't fell off, and you can add some more lines if you want to. Next, I want to paint and berry on top. Let's take some red and mix it with a bit of some pink. Don't forget to leave a highlight on the berry. Of course it blend in the ice cream, that's okay. So I'm leaving a white dot on the berry. If you have time just let our ice cream dry before you add any other colors. This is our little berry. Maybe we'll add a small leaf and just to make it more fun. Let's say it's a mint leaf or something. I think I want a rounder shape for the leaf like this. This is good. It looks beautiful and fresh. This is our ice cream for your summer day. Thank you so much for painting with me today, and I will see you tomorrow. Bye. 67. Painting a Fleur de Lis - Day 53/100: Hi. Welcome back to our Watercolors Challenge and today we will be painting a decorative element called Fleur-de-lis. I hope I'm pronouncing it right. Sorry, French friends. I know, there are some French people watching me. I'm mixing some ultra marine blue with orange red. You can use any color for this painting. It doesn't really matter. For some reason, it starts looking purplish but it's okay. We'll start from the top, then the middle. This is a decorative element used a lot in France, and it's called Fleur-de-lis. It means flower over lily, I think. However, I still remember it was inspired by iris, iris flower. The trick is to make it symmetrical and me talking is not helping. This is the top part. Then it has some kind of lines here. You can see the top already looks like a lily or like an iris. Then down here, it comes in three, like a little crown upside down. You probably know this element, it's used a lot in modern design and architecture, in arts. Then it has two more petals here on the side. Any kind of architectural elements, art elements, decorative elements are a good exercise for your brush strokes. If you like architecture, pattern, design, like I do, just take your favorite elements and try to paint them with watercolor. It's a very useful skill to have. I'm painting some swirls here and then in here like this, like little tulips here. There are all kinds of versions of this element you'll find there. We at home have one which has this tulips inside like this. Looks like we need some lines here. Feel free to add any elements you feel like indeed. I think this is nice. May be a few more swirls here. Not too symmetrical, but it's okay. This is our painting for today. Thank you so much for joining and painting Fleur-de-lis with me, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 68. Painting Tomatoes - Day 54/100: Hi and welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a vine tomato. I love tomatoes and I hope you do too. They are so much fun to paint. While we'll be painting them, we will be practicing with integer technique, and we'll be learning culture show of the shape of objects, the tomatoes in our case. Let's decide how the vine will go [inaudible] a lot of branches, so you can decide yourself how you would like your vine to go. I'm going a little bit diagonally as usually. Let's have two bigger tomatoes and one smaller one here, which won't be as red as bigger ones. Let's make our line a little thicker to make sure it holds the tomatoes. Here we'll have some leaves, and here we'll have the tomatoes. These are the leaves on the top of the vegetable, like little hats. Next, let's take some red and mix it with a little bit of orange for a warmer shade. Add a lot of water. Now very carefully, try not to touch the green. But if you touched it, it's okay. Let's leave some highlights like white dots. You remember that [inaudible] where there is the light will have less paint and more watery paint, and where there is the shadow will have more paint and less water. Here is one tomato. We have the highlights, we have a deflection here. Let's move this paint a little bit to the darker area. Let's do the same with the second tomato. Let's add some of this yellow-orange to the second tomato. We will have three tomatoes in three different stages of readiness. Almost forgot about highlights, and this highlight is in a weird spot. Let's paint it because it doesn't look good. This is more orange tomato. Again, let's move some of this paint from the light to the shadow, like this. You can see how we are instantly showing the round shape of tomato. For the third tomato which will be a green one, let's take some green and mix it with this orange. I don't want it to be totally green, so let's add some orange on one side. Yes, it's like an olive green. Again, let's move the paint. Now what you have to do, we'll add more leaves. Let's take some sub green with a little bit of blue. If you have more time, you can add more tomatoes, more leaves, and you can play more with the shape by adding the shadows.

Welcome back to our watercolor challenge, and today we will be painting a sailboat. Don't get scared. It's not as complicated as it sounds. Let's take some yellow-orange, and mix it with a little bit of violet. As the result we are getting this beautiful brown color, which I want for the boat. Next let's paint our cup. This is a boat nose. Like this. This is the back. Let's take some more orange into our brown, to have some like a wood to. Let me paint some lines. It looks good. Next let's take some brown and mix it with ultramarine blue, because I don't have black. But if you have paints gray or black you can use that and start. As a result I'm getting this dark gray, which I'll be using instead of black. Let's add a little window here. Next let's paint. I wish I knew the name of this nautical here. Let's paint a line here, which will be holding the sails. Something going on here and we'll have another line here. I'm not sure how accurate this boat will be but ideally like all the boats look so. You're painting a boat. We have a line here for another sail. Here we need this pole to be taller. Here we have another line holding this part. Nice. Now we can paint the sails. I want the sails to be Scotland sails, just like in a book. I'm taking some red colored and I'm mixing it with water. We'll have this sail. I'm trying not to touch the black lines. Also I'll be verifying the quantity of water and painting I wash in our sails, to make it a little more interesting. However it doesn't have to be perfect. You remember that. Another sail will be here. Nice, I'm pretty happy about how it looks. We don't have much time left. Well, let's faint a little flag here and add some more lines with the black. Normally I would add some lines over this red one, and straight there first. Nice. No, it doesn't work. You can got to wait little and add some more lines over it. Coming here. This is our five-minute painting for today. Thank you so much for joining, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 70. Days 51 to 55: 71. Painting a Temple - Day 56/100: Hi, welcome back to our draw, watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a temple. Well, let's take some green with some blue, for a dark green color. If you have a classic green color, that will work too. You can add just a little bit of blue jet. We'll start from the roof of a temple, so let's paint an arch, we're going to let the lines on the sides, looks almost like a cattle head, and then other sides of the roof, it'll go a little up, and then down again, like this. Next, let's thicken this line, and the bottom, like this, and then between this add some textures, with brush strokes, like this, and then like this. It already looks like a roof. On the top of this roof, let's paint a smaller roof, a roof on the top of the roof. I'm trying to make it as symmetrical as I can considering we have five minutes, so this is a little roof hut, maybe a pointing one. This is good. I can see it's not too symmetrical, so let me try to make it a little wider and fix that. Next, let's take some red, and mix it with a little bit of this green, for a deeper red. Paint a line on the bottom of the top, then some pillars, like this, and the same thing on this roof. I like this combination of green and red, and because we added some green in the red, it may look so [inaudible] A very simple rule, and that always works. Let's thicken this part, and here we will be adding the third layer of the roof. I wasn't sure if we can fit it but now I can see we can. Once again let's take some green and blue, and make the third roof. This is a very simple painting of a temple. Let me add some red pillars in a second, so it's nothing complicated, very easy, let's add some thicker pillars right here. On the bottom, let's take some more blue with green, and add few more lines to ground it. This is good, so this is our simple temple. Thank you so much for painting with me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 72. Painting a Pumpkin - Day 57/100: Hi. Welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today, we will be painting a pumpkin. I know it's summer but pumpkins are growing in summer. We'll start with mixing some red orange with some yellow orange, to get them more complex and interesting shade of orange. We'll start with one long brush stroke. This is like a middle of a pumpkin. We will be leaving white spaces to show some shape of the pumpkin. Just by [inaudible] water and paint, we can have different shades of orange already. Because it changes the value of the paint, of a color. If somewhere white is disappearing, it's okay. Just enough few white lines to understand that this is at pumpkin and not a different kind of vegetable or fruit. This is our little pumpkin. Next I want to paint the entire vine it grows on and maybe a flower. Here, I left a space for the green. Let's take some sap green and mix it orange we already have. This way we are creating the color harmony. Again, very careful and try not to touch the orange. Considering it's all wet. If you are waiting and it's not wet anymore, you don't have to be worried about that chunk of that other colors. They won't bleed anymore. This is our little pumpkin. I really like it. This is dry. Let's paint the vine. I'm kind of like it, like this. Here, let's have a leaf. Right here, I would like to have a flower. Pumpkin flowers are yellow. I've painted some green here for middle of the flower. Let's paint another leaf. Next, I'm taking this yellow and pumpkin flowers are star-shaped. I'm painting for the petals. That's not perfect of course, and it's okay. This is our flower and this is our painting for today. Thank you so much for joining and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 73. Painting a Rooster - Day 58/100: Hi. Welcome back to our watercolor challenge and today we will be painting a rooster. Maybe not a complete rooster, maybe just a rooster head with a part of wing. We'll see how we are doing with the time. I'm taking some of yellow orange and mixing a drop of violet. It's for the rooster beak. I'm painting a little line and another line, so it's like an incomplete triangle. Next, I'm painting a dot with white inside, to see where the eye is going to be. Next, let's take some red and mix it with this yellow we have here. I have so much water on my brush. Next we are going to paint this crown crest, one and two and three. This entire head is usually red. Just be careful with the eye. Maybe we need another one here. Yes, this is better. Very careful around the eye, I'm leaving a wide space. Next we are going to paint is I'll add an arch here and beard. That almost looks like a rooster. Let's absorb some of this paint because I'm afraid it would be bleeding in other colors. Roosters are very colorful, at least some of that. We paint this [inaudible]. Next, let's take some orange again, and a little bit of a violet. With brushstrokes, leave some white space and try not to touch a red, and we start painting down our feathers. Like this in this direction [inaudible] direction and then the shoulder and then the body, like this. Next, let's take some sap green and mix it with cerulean blue. While everything else is drying, let's paint the tail with this kind of brushstrokes. I can feel how challenging is this painting for you. Just don't worry about perfection. Do it as well as you can. Here we'll have for the wing, because the yellow is still not dry, it will mix a little bit and it's okay. Here we'll have another wing shown. Let's finish this part, and maybe we can fix some legs. Let's try it. First we'll have a little more body or maybe it'll be sitting on a branch, let's do that. It sounds good. Because by the time you'll be painting this long legs, they may come out of proportion and ruin our beautiful painting. Let's show a little bit for the legs, and maybe a couple more feathers. This is our painting for today. I have to admit it's challenging one , but I hope you are then great, and I can't wait to see you tomorrow. Bye. 74. Painting Snap Peas - Day 59/60: Hi, welcome back to our watercolors challenge. Today we will be painting snap peas. Let's take some sap green and we'll start with snap peas itself. Hopefully it will dry then we can paint the peas inside. I'm starting with just regular sub-green because it's yellowish enough, but if you are green is not too yellow, you can add some yellow in it. We're starting draw one brush stroke like this and then we would paint the second part like this. My plan is to have some peas right in here inside. Let's let it dry and meanwhile we'll be painting some leaves on top. I would like to have a different shade of green so let's add some blue to it, to the sap green. We'll dilute it with a lot of water. I have this top part here with some leaves, let's bring it over way here. Then let's have some leaves, another leaf. I'm trying to keep them as watery as possible, have some twiddles and something coming out here, and here, a couple of leaves. Now we can start painting the peas inside. This is too dark because it has a lot of water, but I'm taking out some water with the brush. It will be fun if you can leave a highlight on every single pea like a little dot. We are just painting green circles and leaving a white dot in each one. Or at least in as many of us may can. When we have excess of painted water, just dry the brush in your paper towel and absorb the excess. In the regular painting, we would paint all these around the piece with dark green. However, in the five-minute painting we don't have a time for that. But if you have time just try to paint a dark green in between this little beautiful peas. I'm mixing a little bit of blue into my green because I want to add a little bit of shadow right here. It looks too harsh, so let's soften the line by rinsing the brush and drying it in a paper towel. You can see how it easily adds dimension. This is our five-minute painting for today, thank you so much for joining and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 75. Painting a Peacock - Day 60/100: Hi, welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a peacock. It won't be too detailed of a peacock, it will be a pretty simple one, so don't scared. I'm taking some Cerulean blue. We'll have the head here, so we have enough space for the tail. I'm taking some Cerulean blue and mixing it with a little bit of some green, just a little bit. Let's start with the head. That's so much like the beginning of swan we painted. Let's leave some white for the eye. Next we'll have the neck. This is the white around the eye I left, we'll paint the eye a little later. I'm taking more blue. Let's mix some blue with a little bit of purple maybe, why not? Cerulean blue with purple. You know the peacock has so many colors mixing. This is the neck and here it turns into a body. Here let's have some more little bump for the legs. Here we'll have the wing. Let's paint some lines here. Dots on top. Next, let's take some brown. Maybe a little bit of purple and paint a bigger beak and the eye like this. I think it's beautiful. Next, let's take some green and start painting the feathers. This is the wing. Next, let's take some orange, and put like little brushstrokes here. Now I can see we can't fit the big tail, but we'll do our best. We're taking the blue again, mix with green. We'll start painting the lines leading to this yellow brushstrokes we just did, like this. Next, let's paint some brushstrokes around each yellow. Then let's paint a thicker feathers. Obviously this is not the right painting of a peacock, but I think it's still beautiful. With thicker brushstrokes, I'm merging feathers here and there, and some here for the wing. Of course we need some legs right here. This is our peacock in five minutes. Thank you so much for joining me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 76. Days 56 to 60: 77. Painting a Currant - Day 61/100: Welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a red currant. We'll start drawing a branch, I see you're struggling. I'm taking some brown and paint on the branch. We can always add some more branches to it. I'm panting identical branch coming down and here we'll have our red currants. Next let's take some red. Paint a circle and two small circles inside for the highlights. Next, let's fill the rest of the berry with red and do our best not to fill the highlights. A little ball to paint the second berry. Highlights. I think I did a very little half highlight but, I think they're fun and nice way to practice. And now more berry. And the rest that is one highlights so we can paint it faster. So they're kind of cascading down. And the lower the berry the smaller it is. Like this. I think this is enough. And now let's mix some red with a little bit of green. Green is a complimentary color so whenever we want to make a darker red, we will take its complimentary color. And we'll mix them together. Put a darker harmonious strand. So we're making some darker red on the one side of the berries. So can instantly see how it adds dimension to a painting, one speck into a shadow. And then let's finish painting them. Stems for every single berry. With a tip of the brush, just like this. Also, every berry has a little ends here. So a pinch of straighter brown lines. It does look like a currant at this point. Beautiful. Let's add a little leaf. Take some green. Our green has some reds into it, but it's okay. So this is our red currant painting. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 78. Painting a Deer - Day 62/100: Welcome back to our 100 Day Watercolor Challenge, and for today's five minute video, we will be painting a summer deer. Usually we are painting winter deers, and this time it will be a summer one. Let's mix some brown with blue. We can't fit our entire deer, it'll be only the head, so I want the head to be closer to this edge, so here we have a room for branches. Start with a eye, like this. Next, let's add some more brown to our mix. Then we'll paint the shape of a head. Here's the nose, and here turns into the neck, and the back. Right here we'll have a ear, like this, and the second one here. Of course it doesn't look like a realistic deer, but it's okay. Then we'll have the rest of the neck, and the legs somewhere going here. The most important part here will be painting branches instead of antlers. One branch. You can turn the paper, unlike me, so you are more comfortable. We already painted so many branches, you know how to paint them; and some more branches here. Need to add some more texture here, and next to the branches, we will be adding some leaves, and flowers. You can add berries if you want. Let's add some fur here too, while we have a brown on the brush. I think we need another branch right here. Next let's take some green, maybe add some cerulean blue shade, for more fun. Start adding some leaves. You don't need to add leaves on every single branch, but here and there. We can add some cherries to our branches just like in a fairy tale. What if we can just add some flowers, that's what I'm going to do. Into some painterly flowers because we are running out of time. A few brush strokes, I'll add a few flowers here and there, with magenta. I already painted a blooming branch before, so it should be very easy for you. This is our five minute painting for today.

As usually, we will be starting from the middle of a flower which has all this yellow beautiful stamens. We'll paint some little yellow circles. I took some yellow with orange. I think this is enough of a beginning. To some of the stamens at the bottom, we'll add some little lines. Next, I want the water lily to be pink, so I'm taking some magenta. We're going to add some of this yellow to it to create a color harmony. Next, without touching this yellow, let's paint two petals like this making some lines for the texture. However, I think they are too harsh, so let's dry our brush, let's soften them a little like this. We can add a little petal here and then let's keep adding petals. Some we'll leave white, and some we'll totally paint in pink. So these ones will be white, like this and this one will be pink. One more here, a few more here and let's paint one more open right on this side, maybe one more like this. Next, let's take some yellow with a little bit of sap green and add some more lines in here. Mine that the a little but it's okay.

A Russian nesting doll is called matryoshka, and that's what we are painting today. So let's start with a circle for the head. Next, let's take some color for the hair. I'm taking orange-yellow, and carefully not touching the red, painting the top of the hair. Next to the dark brown, we paint her eyes. They are closed, so it's just two lines. Don't add too much water when you are painting with details. These are the eyes. Now let's add the nose too. With red, I'll add the mouth. It's a little crooked but it's okay. By adding more water to the red, we've got some brown too, let's take some fresh red, by adding some water to the red, I'll paint the rosy cheeks, just like this. Add some excess of water, and you can see how light it will become. Next, let's take some more red and start painting the nesting doll itself. Let us try to keep it, as symmetrical as possible. But if it's not perfect, it's okay. You already know that. We'll color all this part with red, or whichever color you choose. This is our nesting doll shape. Now, we can just add some flowers or some other decor you want, right here where we have all the white space. I'm fixing the shape a little bit. Let's paint the flower right here. I'm taking some orange and yellow; just the same color I had her hair painted with. For another color, I'm taking some cerulean blue, and with first strokes I'm painting the petals. If you have more time, you can add some water [inaudible] leaves and various others. Just a few more branches here to fill this space. This is our short project for today.

Let's start with the branch. I'm taking some brown and then we change this paint in this direction. To the little bit of green to our brown, we paint a smaller branch in this direction. I want another branch for the leaves going there. Next, let's mix some yellow with some green for a beautiful light green for the berries. I have some water here. So I'll be painting the berries on Lillian white lines on there because it's a fast painting. Gooseberries have lines on them, lighter lines on the green. When we are painting such a fast project we don't have time to wait until it dries and then the lines. So we are working. You can see I left some white lines on the berry. [inaudible] excess of paint. Let's mix some green with blue for a colder shake and just a teeny tiny line while it's still wet. For the second berry let's add some more water to the green and let's add some more yellow. The same way, let's paint the berry. I have an excess of water again. Let's add some blue with green in here. Just a little bit. Next to brown I will add some lines. We have some brown here, some lines like this. It instantly, it looks like a good berry.

Let's take some cerulean blue or any color you want. Origami shapes are so fun to paint in watercolor and I think they look beautiful. Let's start with the wings, and again if it doesn't look perfect or it doesn't look exactly as an origami crane it's okay, but it will look like an origami shape. This is one wing. This is not that complicated to paint and that's why we will be adding some patterns I think we'll have time for that. Then we'll have a tail. When I color the tail, let's imagine that we have two-sided paper. Then we'll have a neck going this way. I hope this is right. I'm starting off with [inaudible] origami hoping all better but I should try to make it too. Then I have a hat. Let's paint this neck part too with a color I think the neck came out way too [inaudible] for the wings, and here we'll have the second wing showing like this. Let's make this face more interesting. I want to add some pattern to this part of the paper so let's take some magenta or any color you like, and let's try to make some geometrical pattern. You can see its bleeding its bleeding a little bit into the wool, its okay. I'm starting with a grid and then lets take some more magenta and i will add little blobs. You can choose any other pattern or you don't have to add patterns. It's your painting so its totally up to you. This is very relaxing yet it helps you to know better what your brush can do and how much water you want to add to your paint. Start to fix this a little bit and let's add some simple brushstrokes to this side. This is our origami crane. Thank you so much for painting with me today and i will see you tomorrow. Bye. 84. Painting a Lamp - Day 67/100: Hi, welcome back to our watercolor challenge. For today's project, we will be painting a lamp. Just a simple lamp, not the lantern like we painted before. For the base of the lamp, I'll take some yellow orange and we mix it with a little bit of violet. The base of the lamp is looking like a vase. We painted a vase before, just has a little stem on the top and other than that, I just do the same way as we painted a vase. I'll start on the top, and we'll try to make it as symmetrical as so we can. We have a vase shape. Here in the bottom will be a rectangle like this. Let's just add some [inaudible] , down must look like some abstract pattern. Once again, this is a good brush control exercise. Now let's paint the top of the lamp shade. I'll take some magenta and mix it to some of this yellow. Maybe we'll add some more violet to it. I diluted it into water. Now, I made my bottom line, which is a little bit curved. Once again, let's try to make it as symmetrical as possible. On the top, we'll have the end of this line. Now let's add the lines to shade, very simple and beautiful. This is our painting for today.

For the branch we'll, take some brown, and let's add a little bit of purple to it. To create color harmony because figs will be purple. Let's paint a branch like we did many times already. Here we will leave some little branch for the leaf. Here we'll have one fig. Let's have a smaller one here. Let's add some more purple to our branch, make it more interesting. For the fig lets take some purple, mix it with magenta, and also separately let us make some green. We add a little bit of purple or a little bit of magenta. We get this olive green. Let's start to use some purple with magenta. It looks brownish, let's add some more magenta. [inaudible] looks dark too so I want to add some water. You can see the color. I'm adding some more purple, and I'm leaving some white lines. Beautiful. Let's add some more magenta. Next, lets take some of this green with magenta and add a little bit here on top. Then magenta again. This way we have a complex interesting color, as the result. We've got some more purple here, magenta some green. Next, let's take some green, again, this amazing more green charming of green and paint a leaf. I'll start with green for this little fig. Then we'll switch to magenta and purple. I decided to make them a pattern of lines. I feel like we can add another little leaf right here, why not? Maybe one here, going somewhere in there. This has our five-minute projects for today. Thank you so much for joining and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 86. Painting a Flamingo - Day 69/100: Hi, welcome back to a 100 day watercolors challenge and today we will be painting a flamingo. So we'll start from the bill, and for bill, we need a dark color, almost black if you have black, you can use black. I don't have black so I'll be mixing brown with blue. Which will give me a dark gray with ultramarine blue. So I'll be using this color instead of black. So proportion wise, I think the bill has to be here. It almost looks like a drop upside down and a little bit curvier here. Let's mix it, that's nice. And then let's make a little line up and paint the eye. Now let's make the beautiful pink color. So we'll take magenta add some orange to it and will dilute it with a lot of water. Now after we've had done all the lines at this point, maybe a little bit of filling. But I try not to touch the black areas because otherwise will bleed. And now let's make this beautiful starting of a curve for the neck. Lets add some more water so the paint mix then this curve will go all the way here, like this. So here again, we're practicing our wet into dry technique and you can see that bead is going the way we are leading it with our brush and it doesn't go anywhere in the dry areas. We can leave some white spots, I didn't, but we can leave it down here for the feathers. I think we need to add some more orange. Here we'll have the body with a tail. You can see we don't have room to fit all the length of the legs, but we'll paint some. Now here we'll have to leave some white areas, for the black, because some flamingos usually have some black feathers and white feathers in their wings. It already looks beautiful. This is the tail and next let's take some more black and very carefully add few feathers here. If you wait until it dries, you can add some more. Then we'll add two lines for the legs which will end up somewhere outside our painting. We don't see a full leg. This is our flamingo for today. Thank you so much for painting with me, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 87.

Let's add a little bit of violet. This is too brown, so add some more yellow orange. Yes, this is a nice color. I'll start with the main shape, color onto it. This is a old fashion suitcase. I'm going to leave some space here for handles and this is our main shape. Usually we have some corners here, and then there are some strips. Here, we'll have a handle. I'm going to paint the handle in different color, so let's paint in the strips and belts. One and the second one. Then right here we can have another piece of a belt, and one coming this way. Here we we'll have some volume on the bottom like this. Next, let's paint the handles. Let the handle be red. Let's mix some of this yellow. Nice. Let's add some dots on the strips. Next, I want to add a fun floral pattern to our draft suitcase, so it will be with red flowers, and some green branches. So let's paint the flowers first, and one flower here, maybe just one down at the bottom. A flower we can see. The branches, let's make them brown first and then we'll add some green leaves.

Painting an Umbrella - Day 71/100: Hi, welcome back to our 100 day watercolor project, and today we will be painting an umbrella. It must likely will be a monochrome painting but maybe we'll add a different color to it too. This is a good brush control exercise, so I picked the magenta color for my umbrella. I'm starting with this point here, and I have a handle on the top. Not sure if it's a handle or a x. Then we'll paint an arch and another arch, try to make them as symmetrical as possible, and then another arch in the middle. I think we needed to do more round so add another side right here, another line in between these two, and another one right here. It's looking a little crooked but it's okay. Now let's unite all these arches, with smaller arches. Let's add a border chart umbrella, so it looks prettier. Don't worry if it's not perfect, it's okay. Mine is not. I now have to paint the handles so let's look if this point is here, then we'll go all the way down and come out right here. Let's carve it like this, and so take this to the hand like this. We still have some time so we can add some more patterns. Let's add some lines here, or you can add any other shapes you want, and some lines here. Why not? We can add a second color. I'm choosing cerulean blue. Let's make with bigger brushstrokes for this one. This is our five-minute project for today. Thank you so much for joining me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 90. Painting a Pineapple - Day 72/100: Hi. Welcome back to our a 100 Day Watercolor Project. Today, we will be painting a pineapple. For the bottom of pineapple, for the pineapple itself, I'm taking some yellow orange, mix it with a little bit of violet, or you can mix it with brown if you want. I'm starting with the main shape of a pineapple. Pineapples were so on trend a couple of years ago. Everybody was painting pineapples in watercolor. I didn't, so now I'm trying to catch up. After we painted the main shape of pineapple, let's add the pattern. I'll with the lines in one direction and then make the grid. Very relaxing. Next, let's add some more violet or brown to our top. Yellow orange so we have a darker shade and to add the dark spots until the bottom of every square of the grid. You can see some of it is bleeding into yellow and it's so good. Now, it looks almost like a pineapple. We just need some leaves. Let's take some sap green, mix it with this yellow we have already here. Start painting some leaves from the middle then on the one side, symmetric on another side. A smaller one here. Let's add some green dots here. Next, let's add some blue to our green to get a different shade of green and add more leaves. This is fun. This is our short project for today. Thank you so much for painting with me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 91. Painting an Anemone - Day 73/100: Hi. Welcome back to our watercolor challenge and today we will be painting an Anemone flower. For the dark middle, I'll mix some brown with ultramarine blue, more blue than brown. If you have black or pants gray you can use that instead. Yes, this is a quite good gray. Let's start from the middle of our flower in the circle then let's add some thickness to it like this with some lines. Next, let's paint some little brush strokes or dots on outside and connect our work with lines to the middle. Let's add some more dots between and I think it's enough for now. You can always add more. Next, I want the Anemone to be very light, so we'll take some pink and dilute it with a lot of water. Now, very carefully, we'll be painting petals without touching this dark area. For petals, we'll have these lines in there. It's already touched the dark. Have a petal coming here. Some lines will be thicker and some will be thinner. Another petal will be here. It's nothing complicated, it just requires focus and maybe another petal here. Let's bend it in one way like this. Next, let's take some green, we'll take some sap green, dilute it with some water, and start adding the stem. Let's add some ultramarine blue to the green, and with brush strokes like this, we'll start adding some leaves. I think this is enough. This is our short project for today. Thank you so much for painting with me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 92. Painting a Lemonade - Day 74/100: Welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a lemonade. First let's paint in what our lemonade is going to be, so it's a picture. So much it's like this with the handle. I choose blue for my glass jar. It hits a round here and comes all the way here. Here we have a handle. Nice. It almost looks like something from Ancient Greece, but it's okay. Next, what will do, we'll paint a slice of orange aside. Start with a partial circle. Let's make some yellow orange with red orange. Then we'll just start with some triangles and we'll add texture in every triangle. Just like some loops. Our lemonade is a mix of citrus fruits. We have an orange. Now let's paint the same way, a lemon slice. Let's say somewhere here. Yellow. Again, we'll go with triangles. Another one somewhere here, why not? Don't overthink it, it's nothing complicated. Next, let's paint with lemonade itself. We'll take some gentle, mix it with some of these oranges that we had here and a lot of water. We'll add this mix between all the fruits. If you have some white spots, you should have some white spots. Because those are reflections, we pretend. These are lemonade and, which I also want to add some pink and reflecting into the handle. Also I want to add some more mint coming out of the jar. This is a branch of mint with leaves. It's almost like [inaudible] , but let's say it's mint. This is our lemonade painting. Thank you so much for painting with me today. I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 93. Painting a Castle - Day 75/100: Hi, and welcome back to our Watercolor Challenge. Today, for our short project, we will be painting a small castle on a hill. We'll start by painting the hill first. I'm taking some green, mixing it with a little bit of blue. We're painting the hill with green. We have a dark green mixed with blue. This is our hill. You can make a different color if you want, make it like rocks. Next, what you will do, you will paint the roof. For the roof of the castle, I'm taking some orange, mixing it with red. Then let's add some of this green too. I'll start to paint the roof. Let's have one more here. I'm totally improvising this castle, add maybe a small one, like a low one here. Why not? We can always add more roofs if we have time. Next, for the castle itself, let's mix some blue with orange. Let's start making some windows here, a gate maybe. This will be one door. We're going to have some walls. Here, we'll have another door and a big window. Now, probably, we'll have another wall like this. We need another building somewhere here, so let's paint another roof or two. Why not? We need some texture to this roof because it dries so light. This one dried a little bit better. Let's add some flip. In this, maybe we can add some lines, like there are some more buildings back there, some buildings we can't see very well because they're so far away. This is our castle on the top of the hill. I hope you enjoyed painting with me today, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 94. Days 71 to 75: 95. Painting a Terrarium - Day 76/100: Hi, welcome back to our watercolors challenge. Today we will be painting a terrarium with some flowers inside. Let's take some yellow orange. I had some paint here, it's okay. Add some violet tint to get this yellow, neutral color. I want my terrarium to be hanged from the top. We'll start with a line. Then it will have this beautiful geometrical shape, like a pyramid. But it has also a nice geometrical bottom, so it's not exactly a pyramid. Another line here. Try to make the lines as straight as you can. If they're not perfectly straight, it's okay. I just realized that I wanted this to be V-shaped. Try to fix it next time. Next, we are doing the bottom.Again, it doesn't have to get perfect. It's even more interesting like this. Nice. Next, what we'll be doing, we'll start painting some plants inside. Let's take some ultramarine blue and mix it with yellow we already have. As a result, we get this grayish-blue-green. Let's paint the plant. You can paint your favorite plants if you want. I'm adding some cerulean blue to our mix. I'll then paint a different plant with the smaller leaves. It's coming out of the terrarium a little bit. I know it's impossible but in the painting, everything is possible. Let's have another plant here to balance this color. Maybe another branch coming out. I think it looks interesting. I like it. Next, I'd like to add some pink in there too, of course. I'll take some magenta and I'll add some flowers. Take some sap green and I'll add some circles to this branch. Let's do something cascading of this side. Some leaves here. Let me add a taller plant in here somewhere. Yes, this is better. Now I would like to add some dark brown mixed with some of this greens on the bottom here, like there is some dirt. I think it's looking good. Thank you so much for painting with me today. I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 96. Painting a Duck - Day 77/100: Welcome back to our water color challenge. Today we will be painting a duck. Start would be taking some brown and mixing it with orange. It's a triangle around it on one end, like these. Next, what will happen with that we need to mix some green with a blue. [inaudible] blue. You get this beautiful dark green. Now, very careful without touching a bill. Well, let's give a little line there. Let's paint a contour on the head and the neck. Like this. Let's give a white round, a spot for her eye. Also, have some white line right here between the neck and the body. Next, let's take some more brown with orange. Paint a part of the body. I want to connect it just a little bit. Next, let's add some blue to this brown. As it out to turn dark gray. I start painting the tail with few brush strokes like this and the rest of the body. Brush strokes are showing the texture of the feathers. Continue, a tiny dot here. If you wanted enough, you can paint up the entire eye with black. Let's fix this shape a little bit. Also I want to absorb some of this extra paint and show the neck is covered. Up in top. This neck shape is not perfect, but it's okay. Not going for perfect here. Next touch I want to do is, let's take some [inaudible] blue, add with this gray and paint some water here. Reflect some of the same blue into the feathers here. This way we have a connection. Feathers are a reflection of water. Some of this gray will be in the shadow under our duck. This is our small painting. For today thank you so much for painting with me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 97. Painting an Artichoke - Day 78/100: Hi and welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting an Artichoke. Let's take some sap green and a little bit of magenta orchid, display too much magenta. Take some more green and we'll start from the bottom, so let's have the stem. I think this is too more of the green so let's add some more blue orchid, diluted with water. It has a pretty fixed stem and once again, on some of petals will have just a pattern and some of them filled with color. The pattern will be the lines, we can see by the entire shapes of his beautiful vegetable, I think it's a vegetable. This is very interesting just painting the petal, after petal and like chess like pattern. It almost looks like a pine cone, add another until we get a shape we need, it will point somewhere here. On the top here, I don't want to do it green I want to add some magenta, like it's still blooming, just make these some magenta [inaudible] and on this side I think we still have [inaudible] on pixel shape if we can top it. Some just a junk some I really add the green in lines, it looks more like an Artichoke and right here with blue we can add some water shadow in-between, especially if it's already dry like mine. This is an Artichoke painting for today. Thank you so much for painting with me and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 98. Painting a Firebird's Feather - Day 79/100: Hi, and welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a firebird feather. Let's take some orange. We will be using all fire colors; orange, yellow orange, red, maybe red, maybe not. Let's start from the top of the feather. Paint the little heart, like this. Then with yellow orange, let's paint like a little leaf on top of this heart like this. The lemon yellow or any other yellow you have and send a color here, and one here. Next then take your yellow-orange, diluting it with water or maybe add some orange to it too and we will paint the main stem of a feather like this. Next with yellow-orange, we'll start painting more lines. First ones will be longer, going into pointed direction. We want to take some bright orange and add some more in here for more drama. Next, let's take a simple yellow and I will start with the top [inaudible] just brush strokes, going like leaves in different direction. One like that and one maybe here. Some are little shorter, some are longer. The same way on this side, some are intersecting. Next, let's take some more orange and add little splashes. The same thing with yellow like it's glowing and the same thing on the sides, just a little bit to add magic. This is our firebird feather. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 99. Painting an Iris - Day 80/100: Hi, welcome back to our watercolors challenge and today we will be painting an iris. For iris color I'll take some violet and then mix it with ultramarine blue. Put a cold violet color. Let's dilute it with a lot of water, and start painting the first petal. I think it needs more violet, it has too much blue. This is better. So again, let's leave some white lines to show the texture of the petals. We have our main big petal, and now we can start painting the side ones. With the flowers, you can be as creative as you want. They come in all shapes, and for the petals they're all different. Few more little petals here. Then I have a bottom petal. Let's leave some space for the orange in here. Nice. Next, which we'll do very carefully, we'll add some orange to this white area and maybe a little bit here. While it's drying a little bit, we can add the stems. Take some green with blue and add a beautiful, delicate stem and the leaves with long brush strokes. A little wider. So From here let's have a flower part, like this. Violet I'll paint with some color like this. I think we're going to add another flower part right here. Let's start from color this time, and then we'll add the stem. Next, let's add some magenta, blue, and violet. This is too much magenta, so let's add some more blue. Add some lines and dots to our iris after it dried little bit. If you have much time, you can add some shadows on the leaves and some lines for texture. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 100. Days 76 to 80: 101. Painting a Birdcage - Day 81/100: Hi and welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today's video, we will be painting a bird cage, we already painted a bunch of birds, so now it's a good time to paint a bird cage. I'm taking some yellow orange for my cage and it will be a suspended one, we'll make a line on the top. A little red ink. Now, let's paint the entire shape of the cage, I know it's easier said than done, but we can do it. On the bottom it has this thicker part, on the bottom on the cage. Nice. Here we'll have some flourishes. Now, I have to paint many lines as parallel as we can. Don't rush, take your time. This part of the cage is not too symmetrical, but it's okay, and this line. Next we'll add another line right here, maybe a thicker one, and one somewhere here. Now, let's open the door, like this. Next, let's paint some branches outside, taking some brown and branches coming out. We should make it thicker here. On this branch let's have a little bird which lives in is cage. This is a Tom, she came out for a walk. I'm just doing little bird silhouette, like this. Next, let's add few leaves on our branches while we still have some time. I'm taking some [inaudible] and mixing it with this orange we had, just the brush strokes like we usually do. Just like this, we have a very good and romantic painting. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 102. Painting an Acorn - Day 82/100: Hi. Welcome back to our 100 Day Watercolor Challenge. Today we will be painting an acorn. Let's take some brown, mix it with some yellow-orange. Think we need more brown. We'll start by painting the acorn itself. I want to leave a highlight somewhere here. We'll see if we can keep it. The shadow will be on this side. We can fix the shape as we go. We can add some more here and there and make it more round or a longer one. [inaudible] all kind of shapes for the acorns. Nice. I think it looks good. Next let's take some brown, add some violet to it, and paint this edge. It's bleeding into our acorn, so let's come and take out some of this. I wanted a little bit of shadow, but this is a little too much. Add some shadow in here while we have all this brown. Nice. Now we can start painting the hat. We can paint the shape first with the lines. Next let's add some green to our brown. Then just start painting the pattern of the hat like we did on the fish, little scales like this. Let's add some green to the edge because it's a different color at this point. Then we can add some dots on some of these scales, especially on this lower part. Next we have some of this green, we can paint a leaf coming this way. A very small leaf. Now let's take brown and connect the leaf and the acorn with a branch. This is our small painting for today. Thank you so much for painting with me, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 103. Painting Flourishes - Day 83/100: Hi, welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today, we will be painting some architectural flourishes and also show you how to mix some neutral color, which you can use when you are painting some white elements. For neutral, you have to take two opposite complimentary colors. For example, yellow and violet are complimentary colors, so that's what we'll be using today. So to get a neutral, you have to mix the same quantity of each color, so here I'm mixing yellow with violet. This is it, it's a simple secret. I want to add some more violet. To paint architectural flourish, I'll start with a spiral. Next, I'm taking some more water in my paint, and let's curl this spiral in this way. I bring it all the way here. I think I should take darker so you can see it. I'm adding some more purple to my mix. This one I'll bring all the way here. Let's connect them together. So my paint is not neutral anymore, it's more violet, but if you want to paint some whites, just keep it neutral and add a lot of water. Let's add some water lines here and I curl this leaf-like right here. This one we can add like this. I think we need some shadowing here, and now on this side we can start painting flourishes this way. So flourishes are very trendy now. You can add them to the text, you can add them to your paintings. Also, they are so good for brush control exercises, so you can do all brush strokes, practice them, make these. They're just fun to improvise. Like this one, you can turn into another spiral and start a totally new flourish right here like this or add another one here, and so on. You can add patterns, you can add leaves, thicker and thinner, you can add even flowers. So these are our architectural flourishes for today. Thank you so much for painting with me, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 104. Painting a Night Landscape - Day 84/100: Hi and welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a night landscape with a huge, giant moon. I'm taking some ultramarine blue. Let's mix it with a little bit of brown. This time I want to have more blue than brown. Let's decide on the horizon line. It's a little crooked as usual in my paintings. Next let's paint this circle, which is partially behind the horizon line, this will be our moon. Add the same thing on the bottom part because here we'll have the water. The bottom part doesn't have to be perfectly round because of the deformations the water can cause. After we change that, let's add a little bit of sky. I'm just watering down this blue I had and adding a little bit of violet to it, a little bit of different blues and start just painting of the sky. Without, any regular edge just whatever comes out of this brush strokes. Like this. While this is still wet, let's make some more brown with blue, and add some brush strokes for the forest here. You can see they're fastly diluting into our wet sky, also with some of this blue. Then you'll want to do, let's add a few dots as part of the moon, so it's not as white. Something like this. Next let's take some more blue with brown. Let's start painting the water coming over this white a little bit, because these are waves. It's dark on this parts because we still want our reflection to be lighter than which ever is water around it. The most important part, now let's add a little island here with some, maybe a little house silhouette, like a cabin, and a few trees. Could be fir trees or it could be other trees. We add some trees here too, like this. This is our easy night landscape. Thank you for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 105. Painting a Coffee Grinder - Day 85/100: Welcome back to our water color challenge and today we will be painting a coffee grinder,a vintage one. So we'll start with brown because it's a wooden part of the coffee grinder. We will start by painting a square and then on this part of the coffee grinder, there's a little drawer. Let's paint a rectangle and another rectangle inside. Now lets color all this part with the brown like this. Let's leave it for now, we'll get back to it, we can just put a dot here on the drawer. Now here it has edges, also wooden ones, and next let's take some yellow-orange and some of this brown to it and a little bit of violet. Let's paint some of this yellow like this and then we'll have a little dome and we can leave some highlights on it because it's a metal element. You can see our yellow is bleeding into brown, let's try to help it a little bit. Mix this with brush and then let's paint a line on top and a handle like this and then like this and again, it doesn't have to be perfect. Let's add this wooden element to the handle and some more within here. Next, let's add some lines to our drawer. The last touch, some coffee grains. This is our coffee grinder. Thank you so much for painting with me today, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 106. Days 81 to 85: 107. Painting a House plant - Day 86/100: Hi and welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today we will be painting a house plant. I want it to be suspended in some monochromatic. Let's take some brown and a little bit of magenta then mix it with a lot of water. This is the color I chose for my monochromatic, but you can choose a different color too. I'm starting from the top because it's suspended. Looks like this, then we will have water lines. I have to decide how wide we want them apart to be. Have the second line here somewhere, and one here. Some knots here, not sure if I like how it looks so let's add orange to it. I want a part to be blue and white of course, I am painting only the out line. We added blue by accident to my brown, so I'm mixing more. Then I want to show how these ropes would intersect here. Something like this. Then right here they would come into one beautiful knot ,and the blue is mixing with brown, makes it look gray but it's okay. This is our round pot, and I'd like it to be with some pattern. I am just [inaudible] some lines in-between these ropes. Mark them here. Next lets take some green, if you want your plant to be green, and very carefully, I am starting to paint it some of the greens into the ropes, but it's okay. It's just a warm-up, but it can give us an idea for future paintings. This is my house plant in all its glory suspended somewhere. Some of these are going this way. Some of these leaves. There's so much blue paint here let's absorb it with a brush. Just like this. This is our painting for today. A house plants is painted into a monochromatic. Thank you so much for painting with me today, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 108. Painting a Lock - Day 87/100: Hi. Welcome back to our water color challenge, and today we will be painting a lock. We paint the key in blue, way before when we just started the chart. Now, let's paint that blue lock to match the key. I am taking cerulean blue. First what I am painting is a keyhole with a thin line, very fine line. It is a little bigger than I expected, I cannot make it bigger. Let's make it bigger, like this. Let us let it dry [inaudible] I was talking about. Now let's paint a rectangle around the key hole. With the tip of the brush let us paint another rectangle, and again, it doesn't have to be perfect. The top line of our door lock and this part. Let us make our shape interesting, and here it will be just rounded. Now when we have made the shape of the lock, we can start adding some decorative elements to it and also practice on brush control which is always good. Let's add some colors here, maybe a dot. A very fine line on one side, here. Two symmetrical swirls, as symmetrical as possible. You can add any decorative elements you want to. The important thing is that you are practicing brush control and get to know your watercolors better. I think this is enough. This is our lock for today, our painting and thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 109. Painting a Nasturtium - Day 88/100: Hi. Welcome back to our watercolors challenge. Today we'll be painting a Nasturtium flower. They're very interesting in shape and I'm excited to paint it with you today. We'll start with this bottom part of the flower which comes like a line, and then it turns into the bottom of the petals here. Something like this. I used yellow orange-red. The flower itself is very orange with a dark red middle. So I'm taking the red-orange for it. Mixing it with yellow-orange, totally having it hard. Start painting the petals. I want to leave some white lines for texture on them. Also, I want to show the middle of the flower that's why I'm moving this petal this way like it's wide open, showing us the middle, which will be painted after the petals. So you can see I'm leaving white space for the middle. Wanting the petals to be a little wider on the end, so I may take some further more of weight like this. So next, what do I need? I'll take some red, and I'll mix it with its complementary which is green. As a result, we get this beautiful dark red, I think we need more green. With sap green is not too dark, so let's take some emerald green too, to create more drama. I think this is my emerald. Now we can start painting the middle of the flower with brushstrokes. Also, I want to leave some white space to add some yellow stamens. You can see some of this bud in here blend into the orange, that's okay. Right here, I want to add some yellow-orange, maybe a few lines here. So next, let's take some green mix it with a little bit of this orange for balance, and feed the stem. Maybe a little leaf, leaves are very round, so let's mix some green with blue, and paint some round leaves, leaving some white lines from the middle like a sun. Something like this. So this is our Nasturtium flower. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 110. Painting a Tramway - Day 89/100: Hi and welcome back to our water colored challenge and today we will be painting a tramway. I want it to be yellow like in this bowl, so I'm mixing some yellow orange with yellow, and we'll start with the top. Let's try to make it small so it hits on our hexagon. This will be the roof, and now when we have a proportion of the roof, we can decide how many windows we want to fit into our tramway. For a window, I'll use some brown with blue mix. It's a dark color, almost black. I'm going to start from the middle, paint them on the window. Then let's paint the doors and see how many windows we can fit in between the door and the next where we still have to paint this back and front windows before each of the doors. For doors we'll have one wider window and one narrow one. This is our door in front, and the same thing in the back. A wider window and a very narrow one. Let's add some lines around our doors. It looks like we are going to fit two more windows here, one on each side. Let's let them dry at-least a little bit, and so we can paint this top part of the roof, and this of course [inaudible]. Now, lets paint the bottom. I'm not sure how accurate this is, but it's fun. These are little wheels and some other constructions here, I don't know. Next let's take some more yellow, and fill the white spaces, but we'll leave some white in between just so it doesn't mix. Let's have some yellow here, and all of this part including some white like inscriptions, add a little bit of yellow here. This is our tramway, a five-minute painting for today. Thank you so much for painting with me, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 111. Painting a Raspberry - Day 90/100: Hi! Welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today, I will be painting a raspberry. I'm taking some magenta, mixing it with water. We can add a little bit of orange to warm it up with the coloring. Then let's start it by painting a circle with a little highlight in it. Now let's paint the one next to it like a crescent moon and on another side. Let's grab a brush and absorb the excess of paint to see if we're getting the right color. I like the color so let's keep painting. I think we need a few more in this row. You can see I'm leaving a wide space so we can see the beautiful pattern. Next we'll start painting the second row. I'm starting under this one some in the middle. This side once and painting on the last like this. The next row, again I'll start from the middle. I can see the circles are becoming smaller and smaller and the sides. Let's absorb excess of paint with a brush. I'm drying it in a paper towel. The last row, it won't be complete circles. It will be just by filling quarter of the circles down here. Feel like we need a small filling here too. Maybe here. This all looks so light so let's add some color to it. Next what we'll do, we'll take some green. Maybe mix it with a little bit of magenta we have on our palette. Next let's paint the leaves on the top like a little crown like this. Next let's add some blue to our green and paint the branch. Let's make it thicker. A little bit thicker. Next we need to add some leaves. Not too big ones just small ones. Add the one here. This is our raspberry. Thank you so much for painting with me today and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 112. Days 86 to 90: 113.

Let's start from the top, then I'll have a line, another line, and one more [inaudible] then another line that connects them all, like this. Now I'll bring this line down a little, or a little more. All the way we want this part of the coffee pot to be the same thing part of this, and this part, and this one. There's supposed to be wider here and one narrow here but it's okay. Then I'll have this part which is usually black when darker. I'll have a nose and a handle and the bottom part, making a line. Just make sure we make it wider this time, so it'll be like this. You can see these lines are coming all the way connected. It's important. This is our coffee pot from very simple painting and because there was a coffee pot I wanted to add also, when I have time to also a cup. Make a camping cup like this. Let's take some brown and add coffee. Be more than careful. Some coffee little ones and those solids paint there are like a [inaudible] on it. I'm using the same gray for the branch.

Painting a Street Lantern - Day 92/100: Hi, welcome back to our watercolor challenge and today we will be painting a street lantern. Let's mix some brown with water marine blue, for a dark gray or black color. We'll start from the top. Let's add some decorative elements. I think I want this part to be totally dark. Next let's paint the sides. Now it sounds like we need more head here. Let's add some edge here, awesome, beautiful. I feel like we need something more on top here, we'll decide later. Let's paint our pole. We can't fit the entire lantern, but we can finish on this pole with some line like this. So we are assuming there's somewhere down there, some more. Next let's add some decorative elements, and connect them. Maybe we can add detail, other ones here. Maybe we can add some light in it. Let's take some yellow, add very carefully, so we don't touch the black. Let's add some light, and of course let's add a little bit of plant climbing. Add some pink. This is our street lantern. Thank you so much for painting with me today, and I'll see it tomorrow. Bye. 115. Painting a Sunflower - Day 93/100: Hi. Welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today, we will be painting a sunflower. For a middle of sunflower, it has to be dark. We'll be using brown with a little bit of ultramarine blue. I think this is good. Next, we'll start from the middle, we'll start making a little loops and circles. It will show the texture inside of the middle of sunflower. It don't have to be the same, it can be a little different to make it even more interesting. Once we made it as big as we want, let's take some yellow, and add some yellow into our middle. I'm just barely touching our [inaudible] half and the yellow is mixing in. Next, let's stick some yellow-orange for the patterns, mix it with a little bit of yellow. We'll start painting the petals. Our petals next to the middle are smaller. The second row [inaudible] good. Actually we'll be painting a few rows. But if in future you'll be painting the sunflower, it's good to know. You can see I'm leaving white space between the middle of the flower and petals, so the petals don't get some of that brown. Let's paint a few bigger petals just for fun. I think this is enough. Let's take some green, mix it with the yellow we already have to make a color harmony, and paint a stem for our sunflower. Here, with the same green, we'll add some green leaves. I'll still mix it with water and add some big leaves too. Like this. Maybe another one here. This is our painting for today. Thank you so much for painting with me, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 116. Painting a Hat - Day 94/100: Hi, and welcome back to our weather color challenge. Today, we will be painting this summer hat. I want it to be a straw hat, and that's why we'll use ascetic color. To create this color, I'm taking yellow, orange, and adding a little bit of violet shade. We'll start to draw the top of the hat. Now let's show some texture just by painting some brush strokes. We can add a little more violet for darker shades to make the texture more interesting. This is already too dark. I think this is enough. Let's paint the height. Then here, I would like to have some ribbons and flowers, so let's paint those next before we'll fill this space. The ribbon I want to be cerulean blue, and I'll let it fly in the wind. For a second end. Then let's take some magenta or any other color you want for your flowers, and with brush strokes just in a circle, paint a good flower. Maybe another flower here. Let's take another color, yellow orange for some flower buds, anything you like. Then let's add some branches. Take some sub green. Add a leaf here, add a leaf here, a little stem, and a branch. Something like this. Let's get back to our stroke color, and add some brush strokes here in between the flowers. Think this is enough. Of course, let's paint the sides the of the hat, one big line like this. We're leaving some white spaces, we're showing the texture. My flower bled in, I hope you were more careful than me. Try to fix it a little bit. With a darker brush strokes, we can show some more texture by generally smaller lines. I think this is enough. This is our beautiful summer hat. Thank you so much for painting with me today, and I'll see you tomorrow, bye. 117. Painting a Kite - Day 95/100: Hi, and welcome back to our water color challenge. Today, we will be painting a kite. Once again, I'll take my favorite cerulean blue. You can use any color you like. I want it to be somewhere in here. Let's start by painting a shorter line and a longer line like this. Next, let's connect all these four points. I'd like to have a kite tail. I would say it should have some rope here but we don't need to paint it. Now let's color two of these triangles and for another two let's come up with some pattern. For the other two let's take some red and then want to add some red lines. Very careful I'll try not to touch on this blue wet area. It gives it some nautical feel and then this one, let's make them in this direction maybe a little thicker. Here we're going to add some bows. You can add different colors, if you want, like this. Right here we can add some fringes, maybe another bow here and I still have some time, so we can paint some clouds. Let's take the same blue and add some clouds and maybe a little one here. This is our little painting for today. Thank you so much for painting with me, and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 118. Days 91 to 95: 119. Painting a Teacup - Day 96/100: Hi. Welcome back to our watercolor challenge. Today, we will be painting a teacup. For a change, let's make it red instead of blue. I often paint things blue. We'll start with the top of the cup. I have this oval and then let's decide on the shape. I want it to be a bell up side up, something like this. Of course, it'll have a bottom and a pretty handle. For the handle, let's use a golden color. To make a golden color, I'll take orange with a little bit of violet. The red is bleeding in a little bit, but it's okay. Next, I would like to paint some gold frame in here and embellish it with some swirls and flourishes. Let's make a golden edge here. My brush is not listening to me today. Maybe some lines here. I'll take some blue and I'll paint a little bird in here, a branch, why not? Some leave
