Transcripts

1. Fun easy and intuitive: Hi. My name is George. And today we are going to paint this beautiful, beautiful, abstract, modern big painting. It's gonna be so easy and fun. We're gonna have so much fun. Let's start. This might look challenging, but it is not. It is very fun and easy. Of course you're gonna get all the instructions needed. I know it feels daunting to have this big of a painting. It even doesn't fit in the frame. So it's quite big for the 1st 1 You can go smaller. The design works for any size. This is the size I recommend because the impact is gonna be bigger. It's gonna look nicer. It's gonna feel better. And you're gonna be so proud that you did this. It's gonna be fun, easy and intuitive. It's going to feel like we are exploring what paint can do. You can do this at your own pace. It's very easy. Step by step, encouragement on how you can explore. After you're gonna finish this lesson on this painting, you're gonna feel very confident in making another one and another one in the same style. You're gonna be able to do so much more than just this one painting. This is the beauty of painting. Actually, it has to be easy, intuitive and fun 2. Materials: All you need is a big canvas. This whatever, It's cold for the drywall. Tink were also going to need a roller, a paint brush, a smaller paintbrush and a bullet knife. That is all we need to apply paint for the paint itself. We're gonna need four colors white blue tour Coy's and a little bit of yellow For the gold leave. We're gonna need some gold leaf blue, which is basically water down white blue. If you're not gonna find this in your craft store, you're gonna find it everywhere because it's basically white blue water down. And, of course, some beautiful gold leave. So, gold leaf, we're going to use some gold leaf as well. Of course, this is not real gold leaf confined, cheaper alternatives online or in your craft store. And also we're gonna need some plastic plates. Unfortunately, we're gonna have to use plastic plates because paper plates, they dry up the paint way too fast. And now we're gonna get into the painting 3. First layer of paint, learning to use the roller: Okay. So for the first step, we're gonna use the paint roller and a light color like turquoise and white. You don't have to use three colors. Those are just to make the process a little bit more interesting. We're gonna go up and down on the canvas and use a little bit of water to make the paint a little bit more runny. It's really interesting. The roller makes such interesting marks, but the goal here is to cover the whole canvas as fast as possible and have fun doing it. We're gonna spread this paint on the canvas, and basically this layer of paint is not going to show up in the final painting. It's just here, so we have a base toe work on, so we have a base to put our textured paint later on in the process. As you can see, half of the painting is already covered. We're just gonna have to do the rest. And if you run out of paint on your plate, just take a little bit more paint and continue up and down, up and down. Yes, blending in a little bit if he chose more than one color. We're just gonna blend it in, use a little bit more paint and just go all in. This is fun. Okay, let's get a little bit more color. And there we go waken Just apply over the areas that we haven't covered yet. Here we go. The paint roller is amazing. It can cover so much ground so fast we're gonna use it a little bit more in the next steps . A swell. And you're going to start to love it as a pain tool. If you never use the paint roller for a painting, this is going to be amazing. Here we go. Going on the corner is making sure the campus doesn't show because that's the go here We are going to cover the whole canvas so we don't have any bare canvas and the finished painting. There we go working thes edges and working that paint to make it a little bit more uniform and a little bit spread out. Yes, going down in the last corner and we are almost done. A few more up and downs and sideways to blend it. And there we go. We are done with the first step. Wasn't this fun? If you haven't finished yet. The first step. Don't worry, boss. You already know what you have to do. And after you finished it, before you start on the next step, just let it dry a little bit. It doesn't have to be perfectly dry, but it helps if we let it dry a little bit before we start on the next step. Yes. I hope you had a lot of fun and see you in the next step. 4. Painting the top side of the painting with white and turquoise: Hello. Welcome to the second step. We're gonna use some white and a little bit of turquoise. We're gonna apply this paint with the roller. It's gonna be very easy. We're gonna go from left to right. We're gonna cover the top side, 1/3 of weight down. We're gonna make sure that we cover the corners as well as the edges. It's gonna be interesting to see what the color does once we put a little bit of tour crisis. Well, and we go down a little bit more going up and down to blend duck corners and put more paint there. And now for the tour Coy's, we're gonna add a little bit and then we're gonna blend it in, up and down, up and down. Yes, this is very easy. You're gonna like this a lot. Okay. Lets go for not a stripe and 40 edges and a lot more interesting. We're playing a little bit with the roller, having fun and getting more color as well to cover the rest. Let's get a little bit more paint with a little bit more turquoise and see how the skulls blended in going like a race car with the roller and doing some circles, having fun and doing interesting shapes. It's gonna be amazing. Keep in mind, this will show on Lee a little bit in the end. So no more you too much about this color done just there. And now we can go further into the next step. There we go. I told you this was gonna be easy. 5. Lower part of the canvas with turquoise green: Okay, we are at the third step. Here we go. We're gonna use some tour Coy's and some yellow to lay down some color on the bottom side of the painting. It's gonna be a lot of fun. We're just going to go down and sideways to fill home downside of the painting starting from the white we just laid in and this is going to be a fun and amazing. I hope you're having a great time. I hope you're enjoying putting down the paint with the roller. It's super easy and it gets going super fast. It is quite interesting to see those layers blends and make sure that you cover the edges as well and you go up to the white Bart and you can go down. You can go sideways just blending in, covering the part, the load of white. Yes, really fast, like race car or in a certain flow. We are having so much fun intuitive painting. It's really easy going for the left side of the painting, and from here on out, we're just going to bland, discolored to have a little bit more of a uniform sense, a little bit less texture, this being the first layer. Well, the second layer that we apply, it's very important to have ah, real 6. Pillars with darker turquoise green: with the fourth step, we're gonna use some green, some blue and some tour coy's to make a darker green. And we're gonna use the paint scraper scraper or the paint scraper. How is it? Call and we are going to lay some textures, some pillars over the white we laid in the second step. Be liberal. Don't think too much about it. Just try to replicate what I'm doing there. It's easy is just going with some shapes bigger where they touched the turquoise on. They get a little bit shorter and then drag a little bit of that paint down to make thes interesting shapes and just go over them a little bit. You're gonna hang. You're gonna like this way of painting. It's very, very, very, very free, and it's very interesting as well. It creates interesting textures, and it just looks wonderful. So enjoying every moment, looking at what we can edit, what we can improve, getting more paint and building those layers up. The paint scraper I'm using is very big, so it's a little but harder to get the paint. Now. We're gonna go over the turquoise with a little bit more green to add a little bit more texture on the right side and a little bit more down, wonderful getting into flow, dancing with the paint. It's quite interesting going for different motions to create different textures, getting it a bit more paint and making another pillar just like that. That was nice and easy. Wonderful. Let's go down with this biller And there we go. It looks wonderful. We can apply more texture by taking a little bit of turquoise from the campus and applying it over the dark greens. This is easy. This is wonderful. You can dance, you can make. Wiggles can do a lot of things to make to improve this painting. Really, it really is that easy. And there we go. The last texture added. It was easy and fun. 7. Building texture with white turquoise on the lower part: Here we go. We got some turquoise and some white making a color a little bit more white than the one we laid. And third step, and we just go with textures over the greens. Over the tour. Coy's just laying down with the scraper. It's laying down textures, making this a little bit more tree dimensional, going down with the textures, going sideways, just making a really beautiful mess of textures. By this point, you're wondering. Oh, this is quite interesting. This is quite interesting and fun, so it starts to look a little bit better. Yes, just remember, apply paint. And don't forget to leave out a little bit of the color underneath to show to, like, build some patches here and there of this color. Apply it and leave it where you feel like it belongs just over the darker parts of green and other parts of the darker green, and we're getting a little bit more paint, and we're going on the downside of the canvas, just laying down with the scraper where it feels like it belongs. There we go. That was step number five 8. Connecting the lower part with white turqoise: Okay, lets go into step number six. We are going to lay down some of that white with tour Coy's on the down side with the roller just white and a little bit of turquoise, and we're just going to roll it down. We are rolling. It's very, very nice getting in, leaving a little bit of spaces where the paint should be untouched and then going down covering ah, bottom of the campus and going fast going on the left side, on the right side. This is quite interesting, Yes, going sideways, going on a curve, going everywhere. This is wonderful, Okay, Almost done there, working on the bottom side of the painting and going with the roller up and down sideways however you want. This is just having fun with the roller. It is a skill that is very easy and very fun to just apply the paint. You just take paint from your plate and put it on the campus and then rolling the roller on to the Countess. It is quite calming, and it will make you feel very good. It is kind of a meditation, and if you're feeling like this is how it should be than it is how it should be. Just going down on the right side on a canvas, looking a little bit at the candidates and then placing a little bit of color over the dark green, looking, back, pulling, making more textures. And here we go. We just finished another step. 9. Optional step, grey marks on the top of the canvas: Here we go with step number seven. This step is completely optional. If you do not want to make it, it's not gonna affect the finished painting. We're just gonna put a little bit of gray on the top side of the painting. How you make gray. You mix red with a little bit of green. It's completely optional. It's not going to affect the painting. It's just a little bit of gray just here. And they're putting it on the top side and a little bit on the lower side. Actually, on the lower side, it's not going to show at all in the finish painting on the top side just a little bit, because in the next steps we're going to use white to cover it. We're gonna cover it a little bit. Well, actually a lot. And as you can see, we are building some upside down pillars with roller barely touching the canvas, and we are almost done. There we go. It is done 10. A layer of white on the top part of the canvas: Okay, we are going in with wides over the top part. If you didn't go in with the gray, that's no issue. Just go in with White just like that and cover. See, it's a little bit more intense than the first white we laid down just because it's just pure white. And we're just gonna go over and put those layers and building a little bit of interesting shapes with the palette knife or just starting to use the bullet knife. It is quite wonderful to play with this much paint and laid down the pain. Yes, we're just editing just those shapes to make them a little bit more interesting. What that means is, it's offense your way of saying that we are breaking the shapes were just making smaller shapes here, and they're breaking the edge and just putting in a little bit more texture to give this impression. That is very, very hard to make. This painting, which is not it's quite easy, but we are building those layers to show how much complex this painting actually is. And then we're just gonna cover a little bit more with that white and on the left side on the right sign on the middle side. We're gonna add it that shapes just making them a little bit more interesting. Just like that. Going over shapes. Don't worry. If you pick up a little bit of color, it can just play with it. Happy accidents. There are no mistakes and painting. There are just happy accidents. Yes, we are going to get somewhere nice. Yes. Going breaking that that line in the middle just now feels so interesting. So basically, you're just getting the white and putting putting it over the turquoise and going in between those those pillars. This is becoming very, very interesting with each layer. We're just building that atmospheric perspective and complex geometry and shapes and textures. It's really, really wonderful. Just play with the paint and here we go. The step is over officially, and now we're gonna go into the next one 11. Learning how to blend with the flat brush1: And now, just because it's easy and fun for this step we're gonna use for the first time the brush it is going to be awesome. Here we go. We're just gonna use over the white we just laid and just brush it in a letter bed just like that over the top. Don't press too hard just over the top to make it smooth and nice. But remember to keep a little bit of texture we just laid in. Yes, Yes, it looks wonderful. It looks wonderful. Hopefully or having a lot of fun. A lot of fun. Here we go. And you can also, if you want, go over greens as well and make them more interesting with white with the white paint you have in your brush. Just going a little bit over the greens just like that. Okay? Yes, Over the greens. We're getting there, getting a little bit of textures, putting it here and there, making it very, very nice. Here we go dancing with that brush on the canvas. It's like playing with your sword. It's re here, Lee from heli Fun. More interesting. Let's go into the next step 12. One more textured layer of white on the top part: Okay, So for this next step, we are going to get in with that white once again on the top, to build a little bit more interest and more dynamic shapes softly with the paint knife, the palette knife. And here we go. We're going to start from the top and lay the paint just over the paint that is at the top of the painting. It's good just going slowly so we can control the shapes. The goal here is that you have fun with shapes, interesting learning experience from the top. We go down in between those pillars we just made and making those shapes even more interesting. Building those layers and those textures so that they look amazing and complicated, that they look like ice and very interesting foliage. And whatever you can see in an abstract work, we are complicating it a little bit more. But it's so easy to do. You might feel like you've entered this sewn where you just paint, and you are one with the tools and the brushes and a palette knife. If you did, that is a wonderful feeling. Don't worry. Whatever happens, whatever shape remained, you can always just edited a little bit. It will look wonderful once again. Remember, there are no mistakes here. Onley, Happy accidents. This is the beauty of painting. It is calming. It is meditation. You just go into this zone where you understand how to just lay down shapes and have fun with the materials. It's like a game. It's like playing just leaving over there, some textures over here, some textures. And remember we should leave a little bit of color underneath to show too. So those shapes don't connect all of the shapes together. Just leave a little bit of the colors behind, so you can see the layers in the depth that it creates and we create with this new layer of paint. Oh my God, just look wonderful. And we are done with this step as well. 13. Building more texture with a lighter turquoise: for the next step. We're gonna use some of that white with some of that tour Coy's and a little bit of blue toe work on the bottom side of the painting with a palette knife. Or just gonna make this beautiful, interesting, interesting and intricate texture. So it's white paint with a little bit of blue and a little bit of tour Coy's maybe a little bit more blue. So and then we're just going to make this interesting. Lace this interesting layer texture where we accentuate the background and make it more dynamic. It is quite fun to to paint if you got stock a little bit with this texture. Just remember small, sweeping motions and then big ones and then alternate in between them and make this beautiful, beautiful texture connected together but not too much. Leave a little bit of that turquoise showing, too. So we have so many layers and so much depth, so much ice and so much color and interesting dynamic shapes. You don't have to think too much about it. Just put in color and see what happens and learn from it a little bit and then put a little bit more color, and you can just play and dance and have fun with the color going with some lines lower on the canvas, and it's gonna be interesting to see what shape are we going to make next? If you don't like a shape, you can just scrape it out a little bit over the canvas and let that background color show a little bit more. Oh, try to make it interesting. Try to make it different in all parts. Don't repeat the same motion laying down paint. Just break it down, have fun and remember to let the paint that is underneath to show to that was it for this step? 14. Layering lighter turquoise on the bottom of the canvas: now for this step, we're gonna use the beautiful roller with same paint. We just made the blue and white and a little bit of Tour Coy's, and we're just going to lay down and connect the bottom of the painting with the texture we just created. Remember to leave a little bit off the turquoise, showing through and going what the roller is fun to change. Those those mediums of applying paint paint to change from the scraper to the brush to the roller is just interesting. It just keeps everything so much more dynamic and so much more nice. Just build those layers, feel free to experiment a little bit and getting a little bit more paints and putting it down a little bit more working for that those colors and those blending parts and going sideways and down and up, and it started to look a little bit more more eccentric. The part that is a little bit more turquoise just connecting it a little bit, making a little bit of a square or something like that. Just have fun. Just let yourself be free thinking and creates. Look at this. Look at how wonderful we can make this canvas. It was just a white canvas. And now it has so much grit, so much texture, so much character There we go play with the roller, get a little bit messy and have this wonderful experience. Maybe we go a little bit into the white as well. Here we go. This is starting to feel even mawr fun. There we go. With this step, it is almost over. It was wonderful, this one. 15. Learning how to apply glue for the gold leaf: OK, A welcome to the next step. Here goes the next part. We're gonna put the white clue, the diluted wide glue, and we put some into a paper plate. Keep in mind this is on the ground. We are on the ground and we're just gonna lay like a big, big line in the middle of the painting just like that. But it's not really a line. It's broken. It has a little bit of texture, but the the idea is to make like a passageway from one side of the painting to the honor, but just break it a little bit. Have it have it parts where it's full parts where it just disintegrates just like that. I know it's hard to see it right now, but escape to the next steps and see how this line really looks and how this line really is studied for for a few seconds and see how how to apply the glue. Just apply it with small brush. You can also use the big brush. It doesn't really matter, and you can just put certain on the edges of the line of this. It's not actually a line because it doesn't have a straight edge at all. It's just exactly like the texture you see, but it's more of a line connected in the middle. So if you actually wanted to draw a line from one side from the left side to the right side of the painting, you could so imagine. It's like a like a passageway from one side to the other. But it has edges that are broken textured, so it is quite fun and quite relaxing to latest. Don't think about it about it too much because we're going to edit those shapes as well. We're gonna get a little bit more color over the gold leaf as well to break those shapes because for for us is very hard to like. Make very, very interesting shapes from the from the beginning, we can we can edit them later. You can always make something better. Something look a little bit better if you think that there are no mistakes on Lee on Lee improvements that you make knowing that you made a mistake, it's It's super. It's actually super like good, because now you know what you can fix now. You know what? What doesn't feel right and needs maybe a little bit more paint or a little bit of oven edits. Or they that shape needs a little bit of this or a little bit of that. It's like anything in life wonderful. And we are almost done with this shape. Just playing with the brush. Yes, playing with the brush and making this line. You can look on the side and see how the line looks and see if you need to put a little bit more blue. And here we go with another step. This was fun. 16. Learn how to apply gold leaf: glittering literary glue. This is the gold leaf step. Oh, my God, This is wonderful. Just gonna lay every small piece of gold leaf over the blue. We just applying. It's that easy. It's that easy. Just gonna lay it down and put it all together. Remember, we're gonna need to let the white glue dry a little bit. So after this step after we've put all the beautiful, wonderful gold leaf over the small pockets of white glue and the line in the middle, we're just going to let it of the latter. Let it set a little bit to dry, and then we're gonna brush it off the parts that are not not connected to the glue and he edges and stuff like that. So don't worry. If you go over the edge, you don't have to apply it exactly where the glue is. You're just gonna have to apply it a little bit more than the glue. So you have a little bit more gold leaf on the sides of the blue and on the edges. Don't worry if it sticks to your hands. If it sticks to your fingers, it's easy to wash. It's easy to have fun with it laying and not a one and another one, just like bricks, just pulling it all the way from the left side to the right side, we're still on the ground and putting a non er the this is so call me. This is so calm, and you can also rip a little bit of depth gold leaf that didn't connect and just put it somewhere else. I don't want too much. It's gonna look amazing and then press it down with your hand. It's easy. It's fun. It's really, really interesting just how delicate this gold foil ISS might pick up to gold leaves or tree gold leaves. Don't worry. If you notice, just put it down for the not a one. Have fun. This is interesting. Playful painting, Yes, laying it down, pressing it a little bit looking where the glue is and putting it down, getting one more one more. And that's how you build this bridge of gold. This golden bridge. You build it step by step easily, putting it uh, and pressing the the gold leave. It might look very fragile, don't worry, it's not that fragile, and you could just build one more layer. One more gold leaf at the time. Don't worry if it breaks, don't worry. Just apply it where it belongs. Make sure to cover all the blue you just laid on. Have fun with it. It is quite, uh, fun. Interesting shape. Now we're going into the last ones. Yes. Applying a little bit more looking for that blue where it is and putting each leaf down. It is very, very interesting. Having my finger is a little bit more glued, having too much glue on my fingers now. And I hope you have as well. It's fun putting it a bit more ripping it on. We are almost done with this interesting step. We're so close to finishing this painting. You can't even believe it. See you in the next step. 17. Getting rid of residual: for this step to be goods. One hour or half a Nower should have passed to let the glue dry. We're gonna get a brush and just brush out the excess gold foil Just going back and forth. Don't press it too hard. Just a little bit. Just where you can see that there is no glue underneath. Trust me, you're going to see it and just rush it out really, really fast and not touching almost at all. The gold leaf. You're gonna get the hang of it. Gold leaf is attached and where it is not. And we are active halfway Mark and we're going a little bit down on brushing a little bit more. And the most interesting part of this step is just about to happen. After we brushed away the leaf that is not attached, we can We can just blow away the remains, making a little bit of a mess, having a little bit of fun. And there we go. This step is officially almost over. Just looking a little bit more here and there to see if we have some areas that we need to brush a little bit more. Yes, perfects This was amazing. 18. Making the gold leaf part look better with white turquoise: OK, we are back on the wall. We're just gonna have to make this more oven interesting shape. We're just gonna have some white, some blue and some tour Coy's with the bullet knife on a plate. And we're gonna make this more interesting. We're just gonna break. Make coals here and there in the gold leaf on the gold leaf to be more exact. Just breaking down that those those edges that look a little bit too perfect, making them a little bit more interesting. This is a lighter color with a little bit more blue, a little bit of turquoise and mainly white. By now you are in expert on making shapes, making intricate design. Yes, just laying it over that gold leaf a little bit and then connecting it and making even over the paint as well. You can weaken, connect those shapes and make more textures and make it more interesting. Just have fun and break down those those shapes. You don't have to go on Lee on the bottom. You can go on the top as well and connect and break down that that's roads, just making it a little bit marks. It actually is it looks kind of like a map. It is distant lands in the in the ocean of ice really is quite interesting. How it started to look ends just putting it. More texture and more of this wonderful new eyes, new color, this light blue tour Coy's just putting it here and there, going even on the edges and breaking that those shapes Looks like a an island surrounded by a golden island surrounded by ice.

You can read into it. You can look at it and see Oh, this is like a can be a sure where it meets where the sand meets the ocean can be anything and here we go The step is over 19. More tinkering for the finish: Can you believe it? This is the last step. Were taking the brush, were taking that same color and we're going from the texture we just made and making it dragging it a little bit lower, making it a little bit more interesting. Even more interest. We can go over the gold as well with the brush to make this beautiful, beautiful shapes. And here we go, getting a little bit more of that color in. We're gonna go with a little bit of ah, darker tour Coy's with a little bit of blue, just turquoise and blue and making it a little bit more interesting at this stage. Whatever you feel like you can, you can make it is your own decision. You can you can just put in like a dark green in the bottom. It's your painting. We can improve it as much as you want or as little as you want. I'm not gonna work too much on this. It's gonna add it a little bit with the brush, just making it, seeing where it might need a little bit of more of that white just going in with fast, fast motions just going down and up and sideways, maybe on the top, Just putting it, putting it in and just it looks like the gold has started to, like drip down into this.
