About This Class

b6d9bcf9

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. 

If you feel like continuing painting after our 5-minute practice, check my huge Library of Watercolor Classes for Beginners.

Stay creative and awesome as you are, x Irina.

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
