1. Intro-welcome to my class:): Welcome to my class. My name is David and I'm an artist and a YouTube creator. On this class, I'm going to show you how to print this beautiful colorful lady with acrylics. I will guide you step-by-step through the whole process. All you have to do is to transfer the design to a canvas and paint along with me. Gropius brushes. And let's get creative. 2. Getting started! background and traceable: I beautiful paper. Here's the red. Welcome to my class. Today we are going to paint this beautiful colorful African lady. Do we going to do it with acrylics? We starting here with the background, my brush is a flat brush, big one. And I'm just starting to cover my background with my flesh color. So I'm just covering. So after covering my background, I let it dry completely because I want to continue with my traceability. So that's how it looks like. And we're waiting now about 10-20 minutes, something like that. Today it's completely dry. So here's the try server. You just have to take a screenshot of it and printed debts owed, stopped picture, and make a screenshot. And here it is a just predict on a normal computer paper and fix exactly to my canvas. My canvas size is nine by 12. It's 24 centimeter by centimeter. So now I'm taking a great site or just a soft pencil. These two options you have, you can use it and it's the easiest way to do. And I'm going over my outlines. It doesn't have to be perfect. You just have to be sure that all your outlines are covered with graphite statistic. This f a soft pencil. The best will be 4B, 5B 60, something that is sand coming on a background. Check. My outlines are covered. So conclude and just place it on my canvas. Find code. My canvas is complicit rise a safe. So let's take just a normal pen and go over our outlet with a little bit of Persian, not too much. I'm going over them out. As a now have the design on my canvas and we can start painting. 3. Painting process 1- shadows: Welcome back guys. Now we start, we go painting. And after doing the background and tracing the design tool canvas, we can start to pay. I'm using a Fitbit Bosch. It's a medulla and I'm walking with in width and walking wet in wet. And I'm my stroke's overview shot as you see. I have on my paint on my pellets and now I'm starting to work. I'm using my background color or the time to blend the colors into each other that you see I'm doing no. My stroke so very short. And I'm always using my Vikram color and adding another coda on it. So he started, for example, with my background color and the burn center to it. I'm doing the shadows right now. Under the loops and the chin. Around the eye. The light is coming from the right side and the shadows are on the left side of her face. So I continued with my shadows. Rollins that I wanna cheek. And always use 2-3 colors at the same time. And it's always wet and wet. And as you see that, so I blended. Now music null here, my bit Grom collagen to blend it. And again, my burnt sienna. When you click Centeno with two strokes or short older time short strokes is covering. And now I'm switching to a line of branch into smaller wrong brush. And I could, you know, with the eyes, with the flight is and I did a little bit of blue or soap, just a little bit. Painted eyes. We dislike blue. If the bluish to light for you too, right? So you can add always more blue to it. Now continue with the same line of brush with my brown color that my burnt sienna. I continue with the outlines, doing lips. Also shadows on the bit. Okay. And switching ambient to my Fitbit brush and some more shadows and well denials. And on the left side of her face. 4. Painting process 2-outlines: Welcome back. Now we continue with the continuing now with 0 to say hello to my brush. The same field that brush start to tip on the face with my brush. Short strokes. And I'm adding a little bit. Because I think if we want to blend it in this class, we are not going to mix the oil because if we want to make it easier for us, and all the colors I'm using is already colors. So I continued with my burnt sienna above. Say I am having a liner brush and black paint and taking public paint with a bit of photon to sort through it and repeat, Did I can be able to paint nice lines for this. That's cm chicken o to fix if it's good enough, yes. Still conclude. So and I continue to make the outlines. I just start to paint your face and to make twinkling Defoe to stick to. So doing all the alkyne flick and a little bit of water. And it's a way to do it. Of course, all the paint underneath must be. Try. I bow to decide what we see on the upper side of the canvas. And then I'm going down, starting with the eyes and nose and into a mouse. Okay. As we continue now with Linux, and now you can decide if you wanted to smiley widths, if you wanted to show it. Whatever you like. It's up to two into shadows on Sunday left side, Dhaka. Be sure not to cover thick on or the pink when it makes. Cannot contain our two left sort of a phase because not to touch the lives of the eyes, because the paint is still wet. Continue to face. We did chin. We continue now with white with a little bit of black just a little bit. And this kind of way before the teeth, because it is an acquired skill. And every bit of shadow and so I made it with gray, just very light gray can put also should be cloned it. And since it is my black on my palette already, so I continue now with my Fitbit for us and doing it. Also we chose strokes. Don't want to cover all of the bone underneath it. 5. Painting process 3-adding colors: Welcome back guys. Let's continue now. I continue now with the background color and I'm having my Philpot bras to same brush, start to try to cover my background twice on one side. And then I continue with just a little bit ballooning. And that's exactly what I want to mix the code before it on my palette. I wanted to get this kind of strokes into colors in the background. And I wanted to pick, say, collectors. So I start with white. With blue. Was not truly happy with the shadow, so I'm adding another layer of shadow, the same also with my burnt sienna. Continue on the left side of the face and under knows little bit honor loops under deletes and honor chin. Spoken better already because I've not really hit pooling. So which took place before. So I'm doing the same. So again, with my favorite brush under the iOS and derive it and say I know what my pink or saw an anomalous under my cheek. These are the ellipse and getting some yellow highlights. So can go there already. So they continue with flesh color. And I mix them together and say I want to make it a bit dark corners and mix them together. Right? Okay. So now to also the shadows with black, I'm there. On the left side of the face. We go over to our first black line up. So she doesn't fit cooled so as to cover it again with a shadow of a shadow, it burnt sienna once and then it's just a bit. Do the same to outside. It's a brush. Some shadows with burnt sienna. It's my bro. 6. Painting process 4-final tuch: Welcome back. This is our last part of our class. And in this part I'm going to add more blue to a face in a music here. And my favorite thrice, white. We Blue and mix them together in some spots of up to a phase. One, nose to nose. And I'm taking my liner brush, white CUDA. And I had a white line to the left side of the phase. Okay. The loops, Kono flips. She'll highlights and away. Under the lake. If I'm adding two eyes. And I've drawn a cheek just to make it through BEC more shiny Of the same. This stick. And I'm happy to just look good. Quit. We can continue with my liner brush with my click color and fix the last lines. Something if I'm no tip here to fix them. And the white line to a neck and also forgot it before, would be twice on a year and a few. Whereas I feel like she needs it geometric via just look a term, decide what to do. So I'm taking my and color and I covered the part that was too dark before sure. Members of Black was still wet and didn't look good. So I cover it now. And I think also another layout on a chip and I blended it with my finger. It's the best way to blend. Sometimes a bit on the lips. And I do a little bit also of Blake to the shadows. I'm adding Blake with my Fitbit brush. It's dried leg. I mean, don't add a lot of water to each 3-bit or even not at all. And I make it more pink. I'm still not happy with the shadow. Some, you could always fix it with acrylics. So adding another layer of burnt sienna, This is my Brown to the nose. Just a little bit. And a quick genomic data at some Braun and click on it with short strokes like before. As. Okay. Okay guys, that's owed. We are happy with our painting. And I think she went out pretty well and sign your name. Enjoy your new painting. And don't forget to check my added classes and visit me on Instagram and on YouTube, or be happy to see you.
