So, without much delay, join me in this class and learn how to paint a realistic Seascape painting from a photograph in the next video. I'll be telling you all the art supplies that you need for creating this painting, so I will see you inside the glass. 2. Art Supplies You Need In This Class: Hey, guys, in this video I'm gonna be talking about or our supplies that you need in today's class. So this is an actually Beatty, so you can use any actually pains that you have at home. However, I this is the acrylic being that I use. It's from a brand called Fairly Creel, actually colors like delight. We get it in India, but I'm not sure if you get it outside India as well, and it comes in that idea off ships. So, yeah, these other colors you need to brush is one is a flat brush, and one is a small gush small round brush for doing all the 500. And for two different thing, I'll be using our canvas sheet. As you can see, this is Cadmus people. Thes side of the paper is almost like a canvas a sheet, but it's not exactly this would, but even use a Candice board or street scandals. Whatever you have available at home, someone of using this masking tape to tape it down around up on this sheet so they doesn't move while I'm painting, and you're gonna need a glass of water for washing off your pains. are played where you can keep all your colors and our tissue paper. So that's all you're gonna need in this painting for creating this painting on. I hope you have a lot of our supplies and let's get started, so 3. Step 1: Color Block The Canvas: So for today's class, I am using a campus. People is just like any Dracula paper is just that one of the surfaces like canvas. You can use a canvas board or a stretch canvas. Anything is fine. So let's step down the canvas on the table. And now we'll take out all the colors that I have already mentioned in the previous video. These are all the colors that you need for this painting and these brushes that are amusing for Spain. All right, so let's begin. Start by picking off a little bit of Prussian blue in your flat brush and start rushing from the top off your canvas. Come down a little bit and then pick up white and start lending it in with the Russian. We're trying to achieve the color off the sky. We don't want it to dark blue, so we don't want toe add direct Russian blue. We just wanted do it down a little bit by having a little white. As you can see, I'm gradually moving down to cover the complete sky area. Uh, keep adding more white as we're going down. We want the sky color to be talking on the top and lighter towards the bottom and keep blending the colors so that it doesn't look like all of a sudden you have added a lot off white. The planning should be from doctor on off, blue to the light, a turn off. You can see how I'm planing the colors of the two colors only blue, Prussian, blue and white. I'm going over the place a couple of times more to make sure there is a smooth blending. So if you're not getting it at once, keep doing it. It's actually colors you can go over on. Color it once again if you're not happy with the planning. But just make sure that your blue doesn't end at one place and white start. Make sure it is getting blended all throughout. Keep picking up a little bit off light blue or toughest blue or still blue. Whatever shades you have, I have the shade off till boo, which I'm using in this painting. Not too much off. It would be visible, just planted up with Prussian blue, Um, a little bit, because I feel that having a little bit of teal blue to the sky adds a lot of my prints. You can see that I have defined the whole raisin off the painting act on the point where the color ends, which is not exactly the middle off. The canvas is pretty much 40% off the country's from the top, so make sure that you're not doing the sky to Lou and, um, just mark it out at the beginning. Probably you can do little less than 40% also so that we have remaining the bottom off the canvas for painting the sea. So keep blending if you're not yet done. As you can see, I am going over and over and I think probably a couple of layers off blue just to make the sky look beautiful. Now, in the same brush, pick up, docked Russian blue and start painting out the C line just like the way we started painting the sky. And as you can see, I'm not going all the way to the left of starting mostly from the right side on um, leaving it halfway through. And I keep leaning between Prussian blue and teal boo to do the sea area. And I'm also using my flag brush for this But as you can see, I'm using the teen side off the flat brush to create lines. I'm not really using the broader side of flat brush but trying to create lines using the backlash. Notice the shape that I'm following. I'm not going all the way to the left, but I'm kind of leaving them in between. So follow along where? How much I'm doing? Watch it first and then you guys can do the exact same thing. You can see how I'm blending the two blues alternately and kind off. Sure, we're not blending it completely liquidated in the sky. Over here you can see how the Prussian blue and teal blue are kind of visible separately now on the same brush without washing a victor Opel and I'm adding same way like the way we have been adding the remaining see just adding on the left side awful. And the poeple is getting mixed up with the previous two blues that I only had in my brush . So that is the reason we don't wash the brush. We just speak up the colors on the same brush and keep on a little bit off poeple towards the left side. What I recommend you guys is what the strokes first ones. Once you've watched it, then you can do it yourself or watch it Underwood. But the most important part is watching it one so that you get the strokes right now. As you could see, I haven't I did not wash my brush. I just wiped off the excess color on the tissue paper and on the same brush picked up around. And I'm lending right next to the blues. Go all the way wherever you have space, because this is where we're painting the beach on. Like I said at the beginning, we're just covering the canvas. Heal our motor is not painting it exact. Right now we're covering the canvas wants the cow can pull, can was discovered. We will go with a small brush and do all the detailing layers on top. So this is the first basic layer of focus on covering the whole Damn this with the right color at the right place. So as you saw that, we thought, washing the brush from blue, I am using brown and white and filling up all the beach area next to the water way will fill up the small area as well, on the top with brown and white. Make sure that when you switching from blue to brown, you just wipe off your brush on the tissue paper to get rid of the maximum follow and let the remaining lending. I'm adding just a little bit of white, complaining the beach at the sea at the distance, and we are pretty much done with this layer, the base layer off covering the whole campus with color. In the next tape, we're going to add all the different elements on job off the base layer and start creating the bait. 4. Step 2: Paint The Clouds and Mountains: Now in the second state, we're going to paint the clouds and the distant mountains. But before painting the clouds, what I'm gonna do is just mark out where the distant mountain is gonna fall with with white itself. Eso that I know where exactly, to paint the clubs. So now that I've done the basic our plane off the distant mountain. Now with the small brush and white paint, I am beating the now watch the technique that I'm doing to be in the clouds. It's not like, you know, you're not going to paint off clouds like how regular cloud is fainted like, you know, don't just go and paint the guards off clouds off your painting realistic clouds. So rather than painting it straight on canvas, what I'm doing is I'm doing small, small depths on the area off the cloud. If you don't understand, just watch. Ate a little bit. You can see with a small brush. I'm doing small dabs off the canvas, very small dabs, and I'm not putting in a lot of effort, a lot off pressure in doing it and doing it very slowly and softly, especially the ages, so that they kind of blame into the blue on the you know, if you look at the rial cloud in the sky, you can see how the ages are almost blended into the blue, but they're not completely blended, but they're kind of little lighter in color. Oh, so that is the effect that I'm trying to achieve your So when you do first time and that loud, it will be lighter anyway, because you have blue in the background, so go over it once again and near the same area. And this is where I'm adding, ah, little bit of extra white to make their cloud look little bit whiter than light, bluish, and make sure to do the inter cloud with small brush white and with a little bit of dabbing rather than brushing it all around. - No one mixing the colors for the distant mountains. So for that, I don't wash my brush. I use the same brush I had white and I'm mixing blue, black and just a little bit of talking. And the color that I achieved that is the color that refusing to do the distant mountains. Now remember, in this painting, we're going to do at least three layers of distant painting distant mountains. So this is the first layer, the most distant one we're doing. So it is the lightest, most shade, and on top of that ever it's gonna be a little darker than this. And then the Thirdly it is gonna be even darker. So don't make it too bright. Are rather too dark this layer. So I'm adding more white on this to make it more lighter. So the colors that have mixed are Prussian blue, black, dark green and white. Now on the same color. I added a little bit more white and made it even lighter. And I'm doing even the farthest, most or distant mountain. So this is probably the fourth layer in the distant mountain category. This eso is exactly the same color. I'm just adding more wide to make it look district. Now that the lightest, most shade off the distant mountain is done, I'm going to just do the front of on that I first started with and I make I make to come in front Now that the distant mountain gallows are done, What I'm gonna do is a little bit of textures on them. So in the distant mountains, the lighter ones. On top of that, what I'm doing is I'm adding a little dog, a dark tone on top of that in the slanting direction, just to give the look off the textures off the mountain. Keep taking the same color and add in the front layer. Also, that we have done. By the way, this is not just frank layer of distant mountains. Once it tries, we're going to two more layers in front. Off this one are, but for the timing, we're just trying to add a few strokes. Just don't make it look like one solid color without any anxious is just let the brushstrokes showed true. That's what we're just trying to achieve, and we that we come to the end off Step two. 5. Step 3: Paint The Sea and The Beach: remember that in step one, which is colored, blocked the beach and the sea area. Now we're going to define eight in a more specifically so with a small brush. I picked up a little bit of purple and white, and I'm just going through the border of the beach and the sea, and I'm adding a little bit of purple on this area. It's basically the joining between the beach on the water, basically where the water has come on top off the beach and giving this shadow effect. That is what we're trying to do with Opal color. So just adding poeple, alter World Beach area. I recommend that you watch it first, because the strokes over sure can be a little complicated. So watch it, how I'm blending it into the water area, the blue area and how I'm I'm doing the blending, so if you watch it first, it really, really good idea of how to which yourselves. So, as you can see, I added the poeple and I am not going to the beach area on as in. It was the left side. I'm going. Mostly it was the right side and trying to blend it in into the water into the blue area. Very gentle strokes don't have too much of paint on my brows, just very little bit of paint. And now I picked up a little bit of steel and adding a few strokes on the water area, trying trying to create all horizontal strokes. Um, it's a little bit of green and teal. Just give that see green color off the water. These are all going to fall in the background, guys, because once I add the water lines with white, all of these are not going toe visible too much. But still, we try to do it as nicely as we can. So I'm trying to create a lot of horizontal lines, alternating light blue and out flew. So you're a mad, a little bit of Prussian blue lines in between, you can see in different places. Alternately, I'm addict till do on the Prussian blue to keep the water effect. They'll see no. After doing a little bit off the water lines, I'm going to do the distant mountain one more layer. So I just waited for the previously that I have already done toe dry up a little bit so that I can do the front layer after that. So for that I am taking a green and a little bit off Prussian blue lack with this. Like I said before, we want to dark in the tone as we're moving forward to show the different layers off the distant mountains so you can see that this oh, there is kind of visible. It's more darker than the previous layer and like just like the previous two. Earlier, while having the color itself, I'm making sure that the brush strokes are visible, which are giving the texture off the mountain and return. I'm at a little bit off round on the same brush without watching the project completely around, just to add a little bit of shadow off the engines and keep stroking in a little bit of brushstrokes to let the next pictures show. I had a little bit of black and brown, also in between to create a few marks. These all the small plants that are doing here is what makes the distant mountains look so realistic. Just make sure that you don't make it just flat out and leave it like that. Just keep adding a lot of brushstrokes to make them drink on the marks and the shadows. Don't leave it in between is the more you do, the better your mountains, even though they're distant mountains, they add a lot of value to the painting and that we come to the aimed off state trees. 6. Step 4: Paint The Waves: This is the most interesting step off this whole painting in the state. We're going to paint the white wares to give the realistic do off the whole painting. So start out with your small brush and white paint and a like doing start creating teen lines between horizontal lines towards the right, from the joining off the beach at the water. So, as you can see, I am creating lines. But first, just make sure where I am starting lines from. So I'm not starting it completely from the left side, starting somewhere in the Santo, and I'm making this waving lines before, during the horizontal lines inside. What I'm doing first is I'm just making the outer line for V one so that I know where from vertical lines inside. So if you see here, I am just making up for relying from talk drew important, so you can see the first layer off the line from thought. The bottom is done, and then I'll do the second and the third layer off line as well. So here I am, creating the second layer. I'm just doing the outer layer here from where all the lines, all the headlines will start going inside towards the right, just greeting a Previ outline. As you can see, I kind off moving the brush around and trying to create a wavy line on. After this, I'm doing that word line, even auto again elbow. I'll recommend guys that you watch this, see where I am taking the lines from, and then you created on your adverse. Because once you do this line properly after that, when we do the horizontal lines in, it's gonna be really, really easy. So creating this three archer lines are from where the waves start. Getting inside is the most important. Make sure you're following exact area that I am going through. As you can see the third layer. I'm not completely doing the line of kind of breaking it down in between. In some places, this is kind of the fourth line. It's not a complete line. I'm just adding a few small lines upon four area. All right now I'll start adding the wave lines into the sea. So from the wavy line that we have created already marking the outer area, so from there, what we're going to do is add small, small white lines and throw them inside towards the right. So that is what I am doing. Uh, e I hope you're able to follow it along. There is nothing complicated in this one. As long you're done the three lines really well. But if you need to take a break, can make a pause over your go take a break, drink some water, eat some snacks and come back because thes lines are the most beautiful lines off the whole painting. So if you are a little tired, don't keep doing just take a break and they do it again after something. But do this lines very neatly, very nicely to them. Slowly on. Uh, As you can see, I'm not putting too much pressure. One tape that I can give you guys over here is use a little bit of water, dilute the world or white paint a little bit because if if it is a little watery, it will make help. You make Tina lines, so don't make to take lanes very 18 lines. Oh, and try to make straight lines because if you make slanting lines over your if it is not parallel to the horizontal line, it's not going to look. So just to make your painting look realistic, make sure that your lines are old. Parallel to the horizon Theme. Now keep doing the same thing in the middle row that we have created the tree lines that we created at the beginning. So this is the submittal wine and over your if you see I'm not using very bright white. My white is a very diluted, so it's creating art really lighter shade off. It's not very bright like the first. No, you can see that it's over here. It's a little bit lighter to use a diluted your wife a little bit. So that way you can get a lighter tone over your, um, adding another layer of white on top off the layered. It already is done, and I'm making it look even brighter by adding a second layer of white just to make their way of look more people over here and doing the same thing, adding a second layer in the second line off the wave line over your If you see I'm doing the lines a little bit different than the previous ones that have done Instru during just trade lines over here. I'm doing a little bit off wavy line. Not absolutely straight lines, Not absolutely horizontal lines over here and doing a little bit of it. You can see I can moving through and fruit. It's not just the horizontal lines. And now I am outlining the cord, likelier once again, making a little bit brighter and taking the lines from you exactly the same way we did the fullest and the second life. - This is where my city nature comes into play because I am not where I feel I have that I'll be too much of the white waves. I am adding a little bit of blue in between. You can totally ignore this, or if you want to do along, you can. But I feel like I've added a bit too much off the white. So I'm adding just a little bit of blue in between at some places to make the reduce the white bit. Now wash of your brush and we will do a little bit off detailing on the beach area. So take purple and white and we were just outlined a beachside off a little bit. So just outside the weight line that we've done with White. I think this little bit of poeple shed and add a little bit. Probably don't around it. We, if you remember, we already added a little bit of poeple in the first tape while we were adding the color blocking the whole canvas. But it was not exactly properly done. So now that we have done the waves, we know how much exactly to be painted with purple. So just around the weight white line white Web line on the third layer, we are just outlining it with a little bit off purple. So this is basically what we're trying to create your is window. Oh, when the water comes on top of the beach, it's basically the blue mixed with brown beach, right? That's the color that we're tryingto Agip you to keep the realistic look off the painting. So what we're doing here is with purple and blue. We are going on top of the brown that has already been paid, and we're mixing a little bit of white along with it as well, because once the water is coming in, it's not just blue. It's a little bit of white as well. So watch it over here very carefully. Is exactly the same technique off blending two colors. But you see which color I'm adding. Where Over here I'm adding a little bit of purple again. Well, the water is on the beach. We are adding the purple color. And with that we come to the end off step for I hope you have turned the white lines really well. 7. Step 5: Add The Rocks: in this tape, we're going to add the rocks. But before adding the rocks, let's add one more layer off distant mountains. So to do that, I'm using almost black mixed with a little bit of green, and I'm making it even lower, closer to the land and making me Dunckel. The reason I couldn't do all the trailers at once, because when it was wet, I could not do the front layer because it will blend in with the previously so I'm adding it with every state once it has dried. Once the biggest let's have tried. After that, we can add the front layer and updating the black and green. Like all the previous layers off the distant mountains with white. Add a little bit of back show with it. Just make sure none of this area is flat out one solid color. You're adding some alternate feller to make the textures show and your best rose show. So that's how you do the distant mountains. No mixing a little bit of brown and white to create the beach Kahlo and I'm adding one layer off color just below the distant mountains, which is to make the beach look nice and also to even out the line. If you feel any of your color has gone out from the distant mountain, you can just add this layer just to make it look like a straight Uh and now we will start painting the drugs. So for the hat, I'm using Brown and this woman in my small brush And I'm just a planing this rough area your to do the rocks. I'm gonna be using only three colors brown, white and black. I feel that once the rocks are added that the painting is completely transported to a new dimension all together because the rocks at a lot off vibrancy to the whole painting. So watch how I'm adding the rock over here. So I'm just switching between these three colors toe add a lot of extras, toe the rock. So I room when I used, like, one solid, flat out color and follow the complete truck. So I'm using a little bit of brown, a little bit of black on a little bit of white in between. It's almost like the extreme that I showed you guys for the distant mountains that you are different brush strokes to show the textures. That's exactly what we're doing here, but a little bit more, right, because this is absolutely the friend. So make sure that all your brush strokes are visible while doing this. You're making all the brush strokes visible, and you are not really trying to blame everything into each other and make one solid color . So in some parts, as you can see, the black is more visible in some, so brown is more visible. I'm writing little touch up, off wide in some parts and creating some marks on it so that, you know it gives that pretty dimension off the rocks. Uh, now we'll keep creating all the other rocks. So as you can see, I'm not really using any chancellor market to market out. I generally use my brush toe mark out all the rocks, but if you guys want, you can just market out with pencil a little bit to figure out the places where you want to place. But I am totally fine with doing it directly with my brush. So you're I'm adding a little bit of black and brown to create the textures. Like I said, just keep lending keep playing between the three colors to create all the text shows. The smaller rocks are actually easier. But the 34 big rocks that I'm gonna be doing in the front of this painting, as in in the bottom of this being off the gang vis I would suggest that you guys watch it. Look at the spacing off the rocks. See the depth, how I'm creating the Carlos. Um, how I'm doing the mark making with the alternate color. Um, you watch it caused and they can do it. No, I'm just placing all the small rocks around the waters. So over here, I'm not really doing too much of money making. Just use one toilet color, because for the smaller rocks, you cannot refute it once. Just add the rocks. And after that, we will add the light and shadow off it. So do it. You can just use any color, as in a can mix of brown, white and black altogether. The father that you only have on your brush. Just use that color and keep adding all the small rooms. And as you can see, I'm just extending it little which was the left to make it look like the shadow. I mean, this is not the entire shadow. We're going to add more shadow later. But for the time being, while I'm adding the rock, I am extending a little that was left to make the shop now creating another big growth in the front. So again, for this one, you can see the area that I'm covering off and coloring. Now I would just suggest one thing. It doesn't have to be the exact shape that I'm doing off. You guys want to change the shape a little bit. You can feel free to do that. But first, applying the shape that you're going to do and then you can fill it in with colors, adding a little bit of why to show a little bit of textures on the rocks. - No , I'm drink the rocks on the water at a distance, but make sure that the water area that you just painted is tried. If this to wait, wait for sometime, then do it. Don't do it on the wet one, because there the brown will mix up with the white lines, and it will not come out with. So that's why I read the bottom rocks first. So by that time, the distant ones, as in the white lines on the blue, would have dried. And after that and bring the rocks in the sea. Uh uh. Like I said, right now I'm adding all the wrong. So with one, even if you don't do the highlighting and the mark making right now is fine. Because I'm just adding up on the rocks just to see the positioning offer, just to know where to place all the rocks. So once all my rocks are placed, I will add the highlighting and mark making to show the light and shadow off the rocks in the front draw. I'm adding a little touch up off dark green, as you can see, which is basically to give the look off. The moss formed on top off rocks, so I had a little bit of dark green and a little bit of wide. Also, add extras on the rough. Just make sure that the previously is dried so that when you are doing this layer off colors, it's not really flailing with Previously. I'm also adding a little bit of green in the distant drop on this one. We're not going to add green on every rock, just the front one and this one on having little bit avoid on top off to add the textures. A lot of mark making happening over your so they can watch it little bit and then do it. It doesn't have to be exactly. I want you guys to get the idea off how to detect shooting, how to do math making to give all this variety off actions on the wrong. - Now we're going to add the light and shadow off all the individual drugs. So for that, we're going to add for the for the lighter tone. What we could add is makes a brown and white so you can see I picked, um, brown and white, and I'm adding on the right side off the roads so you can choose which side you want to be in, like the tone and which side you want to do, Doctor, to do the same thing for all the girls. So for this one in the middle of the sea, I'm just adding the light to differences between on the dogs. See, I'm adding the lighter tone on the right side off the rocks over here as well. Just a little bit. You don't need to plant it in. So that's why I waited for some time for this color to try out so that I can add a little bit off like the color of the right side, and it will not blame them. As you could see, it's not the Lord at all. It's just a tiny bit. And now for the shadow. We're adding black and brown, and I'm going exactly on the opposite side and adding black and brown on all the rocks you can see by just by adding a little bit of Dhaka black. How much definition we're getting? We're getting the treaty. Look off the rocks as if you can see the complete dimensions off the road. Now, over here also, we're adding the black on the left side. It's not absolutely black. It might look like that to you, but it's actually dark brown, so it is a mix of brown and black. So I'm adding the black at the bottom of the role to show the shadow. And on the big rocks, I'm adding just a little bit of flag in the front to be something shooting to death. I'm just revisiting on the rocks once again just to make sure I have done the proper light and shadow on both the sides. So wherever I feel, the light is not showing too much and adding a little bit off white. So just make sure you get the actor the technique off doing the rocks, how to make it look treaty. Just by adding the right amount of light and shadow on the either side, off rocks come to the end off state by. 8. Step 6: Add The Shadows and Final Touch up: Hey, guys, we have reached the final step off the painting on in this stay up, we are going to create the shadows off the rocks on. We're also going to add a little bit off waves. So the waves that I'm adding right now it's just below the rock. To get that, I've added, is to show the splash off webs coming below the rocks so you can see I'm trying to create a very clean line around the rock. So I'm not just adding it as a horizontal line below the rock, trying to go a little bit on the side as well and giving a little call doing it for all the rocks in the sea forest. Try to do our asking line as possible. I can give you a quick day. Pio, which have a brush your using, tried to twist it on your plate. On that way, you can get rid off the maximum pain from their bristle, and we left with really lovely little amount of pain at the tip of your brush, and that will help you create really keen lights. Now, after creating all the shadows off the robes, I am adding a little bit more lines to the Web lines that we created earlier. 11 thing that we are also going to do is add another layer of white on top of it to make it look more bright. You see, the previous previously added only one layer of white not but by adding just a second layer of white on top off it. It's looking so much brighter, and it's looking like the for us off the wave that has been formed on the on the beach. So just like making it look a little bit brighter and in between, I'm just adding a couple of more lines as well. Now I know I have made you guys create a lot of lines in the previous state already, and now we're just fine tuning it by adding a few more and making sure that the lines right and now I know it might look like a really tedious job. I know making this lines can get really tiring, so take a pause if you need to, but don't give up on this step. I know most people feel like giving up on this tape and not to the lines properly and they rushed through it. But don't do that. Make sure you to each and every line, as many lines you can do, the better your painting looks just picking in the white over your a little bit. With that, it looks really gorgeous and taking out the area where you're also a little bit by adding a little tickle layer off white. But trust me, guys, that's eight. We're almost done. Don't give up. We're almost done with creating this tedious lines. And I hope you have done all of it really well. My color went out, taking out just a little bit more quite to create the lines, but yeah, you're almost there. We're almost done with the best lights, All right, Finally, we're done with creating the waves. I'm Maxim a little bit of brown and why? Just to add a little bit of beach Kahlo was the distant land, and we've already done that. But just in case it is a little bit of illusion and truth and add a little bit of beach collar, which is basically a brown and white just to make it look really clean and look it look like the distant land. No, I'm going to create the shadows off all the rocks that we have created in the previous step . We create all the rocks and it's light and shadow. Now we're going to create the shadow that has formed on the beach because off each of the roads. So that is what I'm trying to do towards the lift off. Off the off each of the rocks, I'm adding a little bit off culo, which is basically brown, black and white. It almost looks a little bit of crazy bird. It has a little bit brown also in it, So just extend. Eat towards the left because once you add the shadows, the painting looks really Cochise. It actually gets a lot off meaning and dimension to the painting. It looks starts to look really the moment you chattels them. Not for this big one. I'm adding lots of shadows and see. It's quite dark. It looks almost like crazy, so it has most of motive black and white and brown. But if a tinge of brown is, look at the shapes that I'm creating for doing the shadows. Look at the shapes because the shape is also very important. You cannot just add shadows as much you want to. It has to look realistic as much. The sun is coming through from the other side, and depending on amount of light, it's getting the amount of four, depending on the size of the rock. Also, the shadow will be created, right, so doing the right wanted Your shadow is very important. You see, for the small ones, I'm creating really small shadows and for the big growth and creating picture now in the shadows. Also, we gave up a shadow and a little lighter shadow. So I'm adding a little bit of white to the previously created shadow color, and I'm adding it next to this dark color that have already add it just to create some textures on the beach as in on the sand. And if you see it, I am not adding a solid amount of color trying to fear really texture. So I have really less amount of paint on my brush and just very lightly brushing it on the office. I feel this'd is almost such a small area that we're doing, but just doing this much creates a lot of realism. in the painting. - We're almost very close to the end of the painting, and I'm just doing a little bit off final touch ups to the whole painting by adding a little bit of shadows all around on the beach. Earlier, we had just done a flat out color off brown and white to cover the beat. Now, with the small Russian adding a lot of pictures on it just to make it look nice. So just follow along and see on the strokes that I'm doing. It's a very small amount of strokes here. They're all over and the beach idea, so it can be a little difficult for you to watch and do so you can watch this area a little bit and then you can start doing it found. We're done with the painting. I will use a little bit off the beach color to sign my name. You guys can use any father that you want to do your signature. And now I will be loved tape that I had basted it beginning around this canvas people that are used for today's class. I hope you all enjoyed creating this painting along with me.
