Transcripts

1. Introduction: Blue skies, dark and fluffy clouds, colourful sunset. And a lot of missed. This basically sums up all of my work as an artist. Recently, I have decided to explore missed with a variety of colors. I made it and do my own personal 30-day challenge. Painting missed has always given me such peace and calmness, especially during these uncertain times. I still have seven days left in my personal 30 days challenge. So I thought I'd invite you guys to join me in painting these wonderful misty landscapes. Hello, I'm sucrose a watercolor artist and teacher. Take out your art supplies and join me in learning cheerful, misty landscapes. Oh, but keep in mind, I will always surprise you with at least one gloomy and moody monochrome landscape. Don't worry, if you are a beginner, I will guide you step-by-step one day at a time, and one painting at a time. By the end of the seven days. I'm sure you guys well paint your own Magical Mystery landscapes. Without further delay. Let's get started. 2. Art Supplies: Hi. 3. Tips & Techniques: We started early 70s, miss journey. Let's practice a few tips and techniques that help us along the way. Any optimised landscapes, there are basically four things to paint. The skies, mountains, binds, and the boat. In the coming videos, we're going to learn everything about how to paint these four things. But also, I'm going to teach a few exercises that you can do with your brush to get the better results. Without delay. Let's get started. 4. Know Your Brush: I get asked a lot about how I blend the color so smoothly and how my landscapes look so smooth. Does it depend on the brush? The answer is, it does depend on brush, and it also depends on yourself. Depends on how well you get acquainted with the brush. It also depends on how we are holding the brush and how easily you can move your brush. When painting. And also the tissue paper. A good brush. And tissue paper really helps you create magic on your paper. Here, I have blended disguise and painted, dismissed him on Danes all of this with just one brush, this one and tissue paper. And this brush is also not very expensive. In fact, it's one of the very cheapest you can find here in India. So it does not really depend on expensive brushes because I have had many brushes before, expensive ones and they did not work out well for me. We're going to talk about the techniques in the next coming videos. But for now, I'm going to show you a few simple brush exercises so that the techniques that we're going to discuss in the next two videos will be easier and so will the class projects. So first I'm going to show a very simple blending technique and keep your dishes ready. And I'm going to add orange now, after adding a law, now, I'm going to remove the excess water on my brush by using the tissue paper. You can see the brushes now, Damn. It does not contain any water, but it's not dry. Ada. Now smartly blend the two colors together. The paper is still wet. By the way. A 100 percent cotton paper really helps as well. And that's it. There you go. That's how I blend two colors together. You'll go for one more exercise here, how to paint a misty mountain. So I'm going to first read the paper with clean water and I'm going to use Payne's gray for this. So once you're done painting the mountain, you can clean the brush and remove the excess water and just blend the color with the rest of the paper. Just like I'm doing right here. With the same brush, I'm going to add the illusion of the trees that are present on the mountain. Not very detailed. Just a few vertical lines along the path of the mountain. Simple steps really gives you a wonderful results for your landscapes. Or can you choose the best toothbrush? So my advice is go for the one that you feel most comfortable with. That's what I did. And I hope this was helpful. We're going to move on to the next videos. 5. Blending Skies - Exercise - 1: In our first techniques video, we're going to learn how to blend two colors. You shall be. We use this technique in painting skies. So first, I'm going to read the paper with clean water and keep your tissues ready. I'm gonna add a locally in the places that I want. I'm gonna do the same with the pines gray. I'm going to just keep adding the pines gray wherever I want. On the important part that is wash away your brush and remove the excess water using the tissue paper. Once your brushes damp. Now slowly blend the two colors together. My paper is still wet, by the way. Once you feel satisfied with the blending of two colors, you can stop it. Another way to stop is when your paper starts to dry is how I have blended the colors in my class project one. So we're gonna do one more exercise to understand the blending process and well. So in the next one, I'm going to show more than two colors here only we have explored two colors. So yeah, let's move on to the next video. And thank you for watching. 6. Blending Skies - Exercise - 2: So in the first exercise, we have seen how to blend two colors. And now in the second exercise I'm going to show how to blend more than two colors, probably four. So I'm going to go far. The classic colors, yellow, orange, pink, and purple. Up or tissues. Ready? And let's start. I'm going to first read the paper with clean water. You can see my water has turned a low. In watercolor. Always go with the lighter color first. I'm going to start with a local, followed by orange. And next, the pink color. Finally, we are going to go for the purple color, the darkest of all of this. Now, I'm going to wash the brush and remove the excess water. And I'm going to blend all of these colors together. As you can see, I'm not doing anything much here. Just slowly blending these all of the colors together with very light and soft brush strokes. And I'm okay with the blending of all of these colors. So I'm going to stop right here. As you can see, I have used only one brush and of course, the tissue paper. So hopefully this video is helpful for you guys to get started with blending. So blending is really an important step in bending misty landscapes. And to achieve that soft and smooth effect. Next to coming reduce, we're going to explore the blending of these mountains and the bind. So yeah, let's move onto the next video. And thank you guys for watching. 7. Blending Mountains - Exercise - 1: Like I said, there are four things that you need to learn before painting the misty landscapes. First one was the sky. Now let's start with mountains. Misty mountains to be specific. As always, we're going to start by wetting the paper with clean water. Then I use the pines gray and I'm going to paint the first layer of the mountain. Later. I'm going to remove the excess water from the brush. And slowly I'm going to blend the mountain with the rest of the paper. Done painting the first layer. Now I'm going to show how to paint the second layer of the mountain. So I'm going to be using a little darker shade of Payne's gray, just like we have painted the first layer of the mountain within a painter. Second 1. First, add the paint later with the damp brush to blend the mountain with the paper. We have talked about painting the Forrest. Bye In all are drawing the vertical lines with the brush so that it looks like a forest instead of applying mountain. So we're going to do just that. And we're done painting the misty mountains. We're done blending them together to get a better understanding about this. But we're gonna go for three exercises. So we're going to now move on to the second exercise. And we're going to be using different colors instead of just one. So yeah, let's wanted an extra video and thank you for watching. 8. Blending Mountains - Exercise - 2: In the previous video, we have learned about how to paint the monochrome misty mountains. In this video, I'm going to show you how to paint in our colloquial London's using different colors. I started by reading the paper with clean water. Later, I have taken a mix of orange and pink color. This is a practice piece. It doesn't matter what color you take. So now I'm removing the excess water using the tissue paper and I'm going to blend the rest of the mountain with the paper. Let's add those vertical lines. So this plane mountain will look like a dense forest. And C are done with that. Take a little bit darker color than this previous one that is orange and pink. So I'm going to mix a little bit of purple color. And I'm going to repeat the same process of painting the mountain and blending it with the rest of the paper and adding those vertical lines. And that's it for bending the blended mountains using different colors. Always go for the lighter color first and paint the darker color at the end. And now in the next exercise we're gonna see how to paint the mountains, the first class project. So let's move on to the next video and thank you for watching. 9. Blending Mountains - Exercise - 3: Third exercise is just a little bit different from the previous couple of exercises. Here. The mountain, one of the mountain studies will be in the middle of the people. Just like our first class project. It's not going to be difficult. So we're going to carry on just like we have done the previous exercises. First, I'm going to paint a yellow color. I'm going to paint a mountain in somewhat middle of the paper. Later. I'm going to paint one more layer of the mountain. At the bottom of the paper. Spain. The vertical lines on these mountains, they're looking rather plain. This part of mountain is looking her other plane as well. So I'm going to add one more layer of the paint and I'm going to carry on with painting the lines. And in the next video, we're gonna see how to paint pine trees or these mountains. And also we're going to learn how to paint small pine trees in the next video as well. So let's move on. And thank you for watching. 10. Painting Pine Trees: Start by discussing the next step. That is painting Pines. As you can see in these landscapes that I have painted a very small and very sharp bind. You will need a very sharp and very thin brush to bring this binds. Here. I'm using my Zai Dang number 1 synthetic brush. Having a thin brush is not the only thing that you need. As you can see here. You can paint both TIN lines as well as guidelines using your brushes. It all depends on how much pressure you put on the paper. If you put very light pressure, you will get the thin lines. And if the pressure is more, you can get these wide lines. Pines, especially in these misty landscapes, 12 to put light pressure on the paper. So we're going to do just that. One of my most used two techniques in painting Pines is drawing a straight line. Later, moving your brush in a zigzag manner as you're seeing right here. And also to just go on with irregular branches and leaves. This is my go-to technique to paint a normal and very small pine. And the technique differs when I'm going for a larger bind. Thankfully, in this class we're not going to go for large fines. So when the time comes, I am going to show that technique as well. And let's find the pines in our previously painted mountains. So when you paint the spines, you complete 90% of the misty landscape. When an entity should pepper to remove the excess paint at the bottom of the pine. After painting skies and mountains, you have to let the paper dry. Later. You're going to paint this thin binds 0 since the paper is already dry it, the spines will not be blended with the rest of the mountain. So you have to remove the excess paint with the tissue paper. So this is how I complete my misty landscapes. And I'm going to show, do more exercises on how to paint these spines on the mountain. Since I already had gray on my brush. And I'm going to get started with this one. Later. We're going to go for the orange one. So here I'm painting the pines, written and very small pines. And I'm going to remove the excess paint using a tissue paper. Now I'm going to show one more exercise of painting. This binds using orange and purplish colors. So having a thin brush really helps. But also you are hold on. The brush is also very important. Do not put too much pressure while painting and you're good to go. So in the next video, we're going to discuss on how to paint a bird, which is the last thing. You're going to need to paint your own misty landscapes. And yeah, see you in the next video. Thank you for watching. 11. Painting A Flock Of Birds: Painting boats is like cherry on top while going for misty landscape. I'm going to get started by splattering some paint. This indicates the birds that are far away and cannot be seen properly. And I'm going to paint a few birds in detail. So these are the birds that we can see and these are nearby. It just gives a lot of depth to that extra step of splattering. So this is one of the easiest ways you can go for painting birds with a very thin brush. I have dimension. And that is it for all the four things that we have learned in bending these misty landscapes. We had talked about skies and painting misty mountains and painting bind TO of them. And finally, we have discussed about painting the birds. And I think we are ready to get started with our first class projects. So I don't want to delay any further. So let's get started. 12. Class Project - 1 - Chasing Sunrise: And now let's get started with our first class project. And I named it as tracing sunrise. And we're gonna get started by wetting the paper with clean water. And I'm using my mop brush here. There are only two colors in this class project we're going to use. One is a lemon yellow and pines gray. I'm going to first get started with sky. And this alloy is from Sennelier and pines craze from white knight. Going to also add a bit of yellow in the middle of the paper because I want to show that the mist is running throughout the mountain area. And while the paper is still wet, immediately get started with painting the sky. So I'm taking pines gray and I'm going to just replace some paint. And later I'm going to blend by using my damp brush. I think this guy is good enough. So before your paper gets wet, you have to get started with painting the mountains and slowly blend the mountain with the rest of the paper using a damp brush like we have discussed in one of our techniques video. And while I'm at it, I'm going to add those vertical lines over the mountain to make it look like it's a forest instead of just plain mountain. Now, I'm going to add one more mountain in slightly in the middle of the paper. And I'm going to repeat the same process of blending it with the rest of the paper, as well as adding those vertical lines. Another mountain. And repeat the same process. And my paper is still somewhere between wet and damp here, but not completely dried. I'm going to just slightly blend the top mountains. And I'm going to just let the Python script spread very lightly. I'm going to slowly blend the third mountain with the rest of the paper. And I couldn't help but lead to spread across the paper. And that's okay. And I'm going to just turn this mountain in the forest is to not get overwhelmed by all this process at once. Instead, you can take breaks in between and it's okay if the paper is dry. The only problem we will face is you will how hard edges are the edge of the mountains? And that's okay if you're just starting out. And I'm painting the last mountain of this class project. And I'm going to repeat the same process of adding those vertical lines to make this mountain look like a forest. And the next step is to paint the pine trees. And I'm going to let the paper dry for awhile. Now we're going to paint those thin and sharp spines. So I'm using my number one synthetic brush. And as you can see, the paint is spreading very lightly when painting the bind. And that's because the paper has not dried it. And it is okay because it kind of gives the illusion of domestic that is there. I think you have already observed that I'm not following very strict rules while painting these misty landscapes. Because mysteries like a comfort zone for me and it helps me with my stress. So if you keep these rules when you're already stressed, it does not even make sense. So I tend to let go of myself and the control freak in me whenever I am painting missed. That's also one of the reasons for me to start this seven days challenge and also my personal touted as challenge. So in this seven days, we're going to try to let go and see what happens. Now also, please remember that I'm only showing you my own process and the tips and techniques that I have learned all by myself over the years of failures. Please feel free to disagree with any of my techniques that are not going well with you. And also please feel free to create your own techniques. So unless you try and get yourself out there, you cannot see what are the techniques that are awaiting for you. Like I said, in this seven days, Let's try to unlearn everything. Are maybe just let go a little. Now. I am attempting the pines that are wet-on-dry, like we have discussed in one of our techniques video. As you can see, my paper has dried already and I'm painting these pines later. I'm gonna remove the paint that did not blend well with the tissue paper. Also want to add a few pints in a light color. So I'm going to take very light shade of pines gray. Use more water and less paint and you will get the lightest shade and proceed to paint the pions at, you know, I'm choosing two are at the far edge of a mountain. You can choose any place you rash done with sky, mountains and binds. Now the only thing remaining is painting a flock of birds. I'm adding a lot of parts than I normally work because why not? And that is it. We are done with the class project. And keep an eye on this space. I'm going to be coming up with another wonderful mystery landscape tomorrow. And thank you for watching. 13. Class Project - 2 - Flying Mountains: Hello, Welcome to day 2. Lets us see the colors. I'm using an unusual combo today, orange and indigo. Both colors are from Sennelier. And I'm going to be making a swatch of these two colors. If you don't have the colostrum brand Sennelier, you can use different brands as well. And that's why I'm making these swatches. It's always good to know the shades irrespective of the brands. Now once we get our colors, so let's get started by wetting the paper with clean water, PR tissues ready? And let's start by first painting the sky. For this, I'm using orange. And my orange color guard slightly mixed with a darker red color that was already there on my palette. I'm leaving that white space in the middle intentionally. I just want to give the field of clouds and I'm removing the excess water from my brush using a tissue paper. Now, my brush is damp. The damp brush. I'm just going to create the soft look in the sky. I'm using indigo. And I will get started with painting the mountain. Like we had discussed in our previous techniques video, as well as in the previous class project one, always plan the mountain using a damp brush. It creates this sort of misty effect. And once you think you are satisfied with the first mountain, it's time to move on to painting those vertical lines. I'm Dupain the second mountain with indigo. And repeat the same process. I'm still using the same brush since I have started this painting. That is my number 4 and mop brush. I hope you allowed my yesterday's class project. Today's project is quite similar to what we have painted. A sturdy. I kind of love it when I made assess myself. Now you guys, my landscapes can be a piece of work mostly because nothing, no paint feels good to me. I guess I'm not the only one who feels that way. But in this seven days, Let's gonna forget all that and let our pains decide our landscapes for awhile. So I am now adding those vertical lines to make the last mountain look interesting. I mean, I'm painting them on forest over the mountain. And Let's keep this for drying and we'll come back once it's tried to paint a pine trees. As you can see, it's now dried. And I'm going to be using my number one synthetic brush to paint the pine. And of course, I'll have my tissue paper with me. And we're going to paint the pines tin. And just like we have learned in one of our techniques videos, I think you guys will agree with me when I say painting this tiny pines one-by-one is such a meditative process. Thence we are painting these pines wet, on dry. They just had to be blended in using a tissue paper, just like we have discussed in one of our techniques video. Instead are a lot of pines here. I'm going to use my bigger brush to blend them in. And I'm going to continue to paint the binds. Read I think is necessary. Now let's paint the pine for that middle mountain. And I'm going to be using a tissue paper because the pines below are still wet and I don't want to disturb them. It's the same process of painting the pines and then blending them using a tissue paper are a brush. I'm going to be painting many pints in the middle of the mountain. I just wanted to keep it simple. Now let's repeat the same process of painting the pine for the mountain that is on the top. Now here. The pines. I'm painting right now. I'm going to remove all the paint from them using the tissue paper. I just wanted to make the color light. I don't want to make all the pions look in the same shared. It's time for the last step, splatter some paint, and start painting the birds. Feel free to add as many birds as you want. And I believe we are done with our class project to request to you guys, please feel free to paint the shapes that you want. And also feel free to change the position of the mountain or the pines are. Just go along with whatever you want. I just wanted to show the techniques and show the basics. That is how to blend and how to paint the bind and all of those things. And I hope you guys had fun hanging out with me and painting this class project 2. And I can't wait to see you guys tomorrow. Thank you so much for watching. 14. Class Project - 3 - Foggy Dusk: Hello, Welcome to Class Project 3. Stock about the colors we're going to use today. And it's a simple orange and pines gray. I'm going to also use the color I get by mixing orange and pines gray. You're seeing this sort of brownish orange color. I'm going to use Dart. Also have a little bit of yellow left on my palette. I will probably used that to. And the pines gray used here is from light night, and the orange is from Sennelier. And now that we have so total colors, Let's get started with our class project. I'm going to start with the first step that is wetting the paper with clean water. And you are seeing this sketch lines here. I'm not going to use them. Hence, I did not show I don't know why I just drew them. Before we start. Keep your tissue paper's ready. Tequila, we go from light to dark color. Hence, let's get started by using this yellow mixed with a little bit of orange. Here we are using three shades. One is orange mix with yellow letter only orange. And now I'm mixing orange with pines gray. And I'm painting that as well. Once we play all these colors, remove the excess water from your brush, and slowly blend all the colors together to get that soft look. I think I'm going to add a bit of pine screen because this is looking still lighter in color. I want it to look dark. Just blending the colors. Wet, damp brush. I'm going to start adding the mountains now. I think this color is looking still dull. I will directly add pines gray. And it's adding the color. Make sure to blend with the rest of the paper using a damp brush, like we have discussed in blending mode dense video. Adding those vertical lines using the same pines gray and also same brush. Let's paint the second mountain and blend it with the rest of the paper using a damp brush. Let's finish by adding those vertical lines. When gone, painting the third mountain. I want to share an interesting story about where I got inspiration for this painting. The colors. I mean, I think it's better to show you guys standards that we have to wait till we finish this last mountain. I guess there is a lack of whitespace in the middle of this Mountains. The second, third 1, and the last one. So I'm going to just increase the height of this binds. That is all. For the first layer of Painting Class Project 3. We're going to have to wait till it dries so that we can continue painting the pine trees. And the inspiration for this has come from my shirt that I'm wearing right now. You can see the colors. And that shows that we can find inspiration from anywhere around us. And I hope you like this color combinations that I chose from my shirt. And currently I'm bending the spines wet-on-dry. So in order to blend them, you're going to have to use a tissue and a brush, just like I'm showing right here. Decided not to paint so many pints in this class project. Unlike yesterday where we have painted a lot of them. It's more fun to paint the pines in the mountains above. We have talked about blending the spines that are painted on wet-on-dry in one of our previous videos. This fine, the video titled the painting Pines. And I have explained the whole process step-by-step. I'm going to paint defines in a very light color. For that, I'm going to use a tissue paper. First, I'm going to paint it binds normally letter. I'm going to dab on those spines using my tissue paper to remove all the colors. Move on to painting. The last step that is plugging some paint and painting. The Bart also explained on how to paint these birds in one of our techniques video. And we are done with our class project tree, frog. Bid-ask. I hope you enjoyed painting this with me and see you guys tomorrow for a class project for and thank you so much for watching. 15. Class Project - 4 - Cloudy Dawn: Let's paint a very dull and moldy landscape today. But first, let's talk about the colors. I have used two colors today, greenish, amber and indigo. And I know greenish amber is not something you will have in your palate because it's such a red color. You can get to color by mixing sap green with indigo. I'm going to be using a mix of greenish, amber and indigo for this landscape. And both of these colors, greenish amber and indigo from Sennelier brand. And let's get started by wetting the paper with clean water. And like I said, I'm going to be mixing my greenish amber with indigo. Greenish amber was already a dull color. Mixing with indigo to get even duller and multicolor as you can see here. Now I'm going to get started by painting the sky and I'm going to be leaving some white spaces in the middle. So later I'm going to blend those whitespaces with rest of the paper. And it'll give you sort of cloudy and misty look. I forgot to mention. Continue painting the same color with the rest of the paper. There's going to be a lake as well in this landscape and stuff, just mountains. So the bottom part is going to be a lake. And now let's spend those clouds together using our damp brush. Don't worry, if you're painting. It looks different from mine because it is watercolor. And we are painting wet-on-wet. So it is very possible that every one of our painting will be quite different. And I'm going to quickly take a small and number two brush. And with the same paint, I'm going to be adding the repulse. And let's add first mountain. As you can see, I'm blending this mountain very likely than I have done in our previous class projects because it's not going to be white. And I want to keep that green color ICTs. So I'm not putting much pressure in blending. And let's get started by adding those vertical lines. And I'm going to get started by painting the second mountain. And this mountain will be a lot thicker than the previous one. So add more indigo. I'm going to leave some paint off here. And this small white line differentiates the land above and the lake below. And if your paper is already dried, do not try lifting. Instead, you can just use a white marker, are a white pen, gel pen to draw that line. And I'm just roughly painting these vertical lines here because I'm going to be painting a full set of pine trees after it's dried. So go over it very lightly. It's like marking the position of where your pints are going to be. So once you are done, keep this for drying and I will come back once it's dried. Taking my number 2 round brush and I'm going to be using a lot of indigo and just a little bit of greenish amber. And I'm going to get started on painting the pine trees. And I'm going to take more paint, more indigo paint, and I'm going to blend those fines with rest of the land. The land will be in indigo color. Because I want to show the contrast between the background line that is in light color and this one in the dark. Because this is how it's going to be in the nature as well. The objects that are far away from us will be a lighter color. And the objects that are near to us well-being darker shade. And I'm going to just take some paint, some more of the same paint. And I'm going to use my number one brush and I'm going to draw a few lines over there. It looks like our reflection, some sort of ripples, but and then it does look realistic. So I usually paint the sort of small lines in my landscapes. Let's paint a bird. But in this landscape, this is not the final step. That is some of the work still left out comes the last step. I'm going to take the same paint that I have taken to paint those binaries before, produce more indigo and less green. And I'm going to paint a few more pine trees on my right child. And now I'm almost done too, just want to make the edge of this land more sharper. Via done. And I hope you loved painting this dull and dark landscape with me. And see you tomorrow with Class Project 5. Thank you so much for watching. 16. Class Project - 5 - Untouched: Hello, Welcome to class project file. Let's discuss the colors that we're going to be using. Here. I'm mixing tacos blue with the indigo. And I have got this beautiful. I see blue color. The darker color is from a brand called tunnels. And the Indigo is from Daniel Smith. If you don't have these brands, you can use any brand of colors that you have. Stone, luckily, we're going to be using. And now let's get started with our class project. Here. I have started by wetting the paper with clean water. I'm going to paint the sky in a slightly different way than our previous class projects. I'm going to hold the bowl slightly apart. And I'm going to just start to add the color very lightly. And using the wet brush, I'm going to just drag the color down. Paper was already wet. The paint just flows downwards. I'm going to just assist its natural movement with my brush. I'm not going to interfere much. And I'm using my masking tape now and I haven't keep it under my board. And I will start adding the mountains now. And I'm going to use a very dark color of just indigo. Once I add the mountain, I'm going to blend it using my damn brush. And I'm going to blend it very lightly. Let's add the second mountain using the same color of indigo. You guys already know the next step that is blending this mountain with the rest of the paper. Let's add the third and final mountain. Not going to add those vertical lines and those two mountains above, I'm going to directly add finds. But for the start mountain, I'm going to add a few wet-on-wet pine trees using my number two, brush and wet on wet because my paper is still wet. And if your paper has already dried, you can add these spines on a dry surface as well. We're going to add a lot of finds when this paper is dry it up. So I'm going to keep this for drying and I will come back once it's dried. Digest absolutely. Lau how beautifully the paper has dried. You can see that the pain, it looks like it's just flowing all through the paper. And let's make it even more beautiful. Using my number one synthetic brush. And I'm going to paint the find starting from the mountain below. I'm going to blend it using my tissue paper. I'm going to add a lot of pine trees in the mountain below, and I'm going to repeat the process of blending them. Using the tissue paper. Catherine, as today's class project, your result may look completely different from mine. First, and most of this landscape is done on wet, on wet surface. And right from the moment pain touches the water, you can't control its moment. Mean we can manipulate it. You can completely control the outlook. It's perfectly and completely okay to have your landscapes look different from who you are learning from. Leaf, I can give you an advice. It's dad used a character paper, use a 100 percent cotton paper and 300 GSM minimum. News. The brushes that you are comfortable with. With this basic art supplies. You can get great results with watercolor. The main takeaway for us, a learning these misty landscape is to let go of control and let go of control of everything and be present. And just slowly building the landscape step-by-step. Here. I'm almost done painting the pine and blending them using tissue paper from the second mountain. Let's go work on the mountain that's on the top. Because of using tissue paper a lot. You can see a few find getting printed on them as well. And I paint a few finds in the middle of this space between two mountains as well. Finds have to be carefully blender because they don't have mountains in the background and they can look arc if they are not blended properly. We're going to paint a few large pints on the second mountain because it was looking rather plain. And I splatter some indigo paint. But in this landscape are different from what we have painted so far. So I thought I'd give you guys a small tutorial. I am painting too large part, flying away in this landscape. Might need a bit of practice to paint these large birds, but they are quite easy to show and more exercise. First, you kinda have to paint a small triangle like structure. And later, you should add two rings. That's how you paint a large part. Only three structures. Two rings and triangle in the middle of them. Oh, let's spend these boats on our landscape. Practice as much as you can until you get those birds up chest, right? And please don't paint on the Main Landscape until you have practiced enough. And trust me, I held a lot of good landscape with a bat bird. I'm going to paint one more of this bird, but in a slightly smaller size than the previous one. And I'm going to use some whitewash and splatter some paint. Because why not? And we're done. And I'm gonna see you guys tomorrow with another new class project. And thank you so much for watching. 17. Class Project - 6 - First Light: Hello, and welcome to Class Projects 6. Let's first see the colors we're going to be using today. I'm going for a sunrise scene here. So I'm using all the bright colors, yellow, orange, red. And finally, so find, I'm going to be using pines gray. And the radial seeing here is a mix of orange and finds grade that are already there on my palette. But you can use normal read if you want. Yellow and orange are from Sennelier brand and finds gray is from White Knight. And the radii are seeing here is a mix of pines, gray from White Nights and orange from Sennelier. Like I said, you can use a normal dread color. I just did not want to list the paint that is there on my palette. Let's start by wetting the paper with clean water. And I'm using my mop brush. Let's go from light to dark in watercolor. So let's get started with a law followed by orange and the red. Using my damp brush, I'm gonna softly blend all the colors together. I might use, given more yellow here because it's almost visible and there is just a huge white hollow in the middle. I don't know how it came. It does not intentional using a tissue paper and I will remove just a little bit of paint in a round shape, and that indicates the sun. Once we're done with that sky, it's time to start painting the mountains and finds. So I'm using pines gray. And I'm going to blend that color softly with the rest of the paper using a damp brush. Let's add the second mountain using the same color. And let's repeat the same process of blending it with the rest of the paper. Going to add a few vertical lines in the second mountain to show that there are trace on that. And I'm going to leave the first mountain alone. Add the third one tail in three parts because I want to show them missed in the middle of it as well. Last one, tap into part. We're going to add a few trees. I mean, the vertical lines on a few of these mountains. And decided to go for seven days of MR and fall class. I have put together are very few misty landscapes from my old collections. And this is one of them. And I'll say it's one of my favorites. And it's time to let this one dry. So I'll come back once it's tried to add the pines on wet on dry surface. I'm going to add these pine trees exactly like I have added in one of my old landscapes. And I'm going to use my trusty Number 1 synthetic brush to paint these pines. And don't forget to blend them using a tissue or the end. In stuff just tissue. I'm using a red brush as well to blend the spines. Add a lot of pines in the mountain below, and a very few in the mountains. Repeat the same process. In one of the mountains. I was having. This journey of mist and fog is coming to an end. Only one day left, and that is tomorrow. I have researched such wonderful feedback and messages from all of you guys. And for that, I thank you so much. In case you don't know. I just don't want to allow a lot of white space in between my subjects. So I'm going to add a couple of pine trees here at this place because it looks too Misty and do empty. I'm going to blend them using a tissue paper to splatter some pain. And I had a few, but I'm using my number one brush and finds gray to paint this part. And I hope you allowed painting this cheerful while Sundays painting with me. I'm gonna see you tomorrow with our final class project. And thank you so much for watching. 18. Class Project - 7 - Misty Morning: Hello, welcome to our final class project. Let's discuss the callous fast. And I'm going to use four colors today. Yellow, orange, and purple mix to it. Red. And finally by n square. Yellow, orange and purple are from Sennelier. And the red, which was already there on my palette, if you remember correctly, a steady, I have mixed my orange with Python script to get that red color. But you can use any red. And pines gray, he's from white knight. There'll be three mountains in this landscape, and I'm going to slightly point them out. And it'll be easier for me to paint. Let's start by wetting the paper with clean water. And I'm using my mop brush. I'm going to start by adding a law followed by orange and purplish red color. I'm going to remove all the water from my brush using a tissue paper. And I'm going to blend all of those colors together and very softly do not use force while using our brush. Start by adding the mountains and I'm using my pencil mark as a reference. As you guys can see, I'm using a very dark pines gray here because I want all of those mountains to look similar in color. So the dumbest in-between them will get highlighted very quickly and very softly. Blend the mountain with the rest of the paper. Using your damp brush. There is a lot of pines gray there. I'm going to keep a masking tape under my board. It gives that flowy and misty look when the paint flows down. And let's add a second mountain. And as you can see, the paint has already flowed down because of masking tape. Blend the second mountain very carefully. Now, let's paint our third Mountain using the same intensity of pines gray. Don't forget to add, does vertical line clearly helps to make the mountain look interesting. You can see how beautifully the paint has slowed down. I said only three mountains, but this space here is looking quite empty, so I'm going to add a tiny one. We're going to keep this for drying. And I'll come back once it's dried. Using my number one synthetic brush. I'm going to get started on painting the pines. This time I'm using the wet brush to blend all of these binds together. A wet brush and tissue paper. Then add a lot of pine trees in this foster mountain. And I'm going to blend them all using a wet brush and tissue paper. Already at the end of the seven days of sweet and short journey of learning, mist and fog. Gotten a lot of messages saying you absolutely loved this course. Thank you so much for that. There are still a lot of different techniques used to create the midst. What we have discussed in this course is introductory. And a very simplistic method helps sometime in the future, we can learn everything there is to mist and fog. It is worth to mention that all of these techniques, the advanced beginner friendly, depend on your brush. Help you find a very good brush. It takes a few trial and errors, have costs. And if you already have that brush, please hold onto it. I'm painting the last batch of fines on a very tiny mountain. So we are done with our pines, lead splatter, some paint and paint a few, Bert. I hope you enjoyed painting this final class project with me. Thank you so much for watching. See you in my next video. 19. Final Thoughts: We are done with seven days MR. and fall Journey. What we had learned in this class, we have started with the blending techniques and learned a couple of exercises on how to blend colors in the sky. Done three exercises on how to paint those misty mountains. Followed by how to paint pine trees, the small and tiny ones. And also, we have learned how to paint a flock of birds. Probably a new kick size of all of them is the brush exercises. We have learned so much about the importance of having a good brush. It's needed to have a friend in your brush. And we have total of seven class projects in this class. Each of the landscape is quite unique in its own way. In one of the landscapes, we have also learned how to paint one of those big, but I hope this short seven days journey of learning missed, is as peaceful to you as it was for me. Thank you so much for watching. See you in my next class.
