1. Introduction: Hi, my step and I have been teaching her professionally for the past five. I change my career from White father corporate job to be a full time artist because of my interest in art on, because I ultimately to teach anything to us. I mean, out of my studio in India. And I am right now sitting in my back in this video I have known include so much fighting take part in this past five years in my city that I wanted to extend this beyond this physical little teaching to the on land boy Impeach Everyone's a refund off the So should I am with my first this class teaching you? I just left him from my heart. No, I reckon class for anyone from beginners to advanced on. I want you to know about how you know I'm gonna be taking you to every brushstrokes. And basically you will see my every war last. I'll also be showing you how to use different colors toe light and shadow my ads to show the prospect. It's just very basically learning about last. Use it any other to be scared by hearing what you just heard me saying because I am here to guide you every step of the way. So now this less is for anyone. You don't need to have any prior art experience to join this class. Or if you think you know, painting for a very long time. And I got a chance to start being active. Others if you think you can obtain it for if you think that you need a guide, you in your journey is and this last also for you. If you are before the pain can see your everyday life, all you need is just a age group canvas. Actually, Carlos, you're dying 2 20 on your interesting. So join me in this class and I look forward to seeing you. 2. Art Supplies: Hey, guys, in this video, I'm gonna be showing you all the art supplies that you need to create this painting. So, sure, I have my actually colors. This is the only actual colors that I use in all of my paintings. So this is the brand called Favorite Creel, actually colors, which is off the brand of very light. It's an Indian brand, so I'm not so sure that you will get it outside India. So these are This is how the bottles looks like. These are 500 ml bottles. I buy them in 500 a month so that no surprise for a long time, and then I don't have to buy them often on what I do is normally I transferred these colors into this kind of for Nosal bottle. So these are basic allocator bottles, but I store colors in it because they're easy to use, so you can just open this nozzle and no pull your colors on your palate. So, yeah, For this painting, you would need some actually colors. Any brand do whichever brand you have, but these are fluid acrylics. As you can see, it's a fluid acrylic. A. It's not a very heavy body. So I like it was in this weed a clinic, because it's kind of helps me sprayed the colors on the canvas day, isn't it? So check out the ability off the pain is probably free flowing. So this is how the consistency or the color is so, yeah, so far, this feeling you be needing some, actually colors are played well, even keep your colors a glass jar control you water and a couple of brushes so little about the project. So this is these are the two brushes that you need for this. Creating spending one is a flat brush I'm using. It will brush because older brush gives really good a texture. So if you're using our new make sure to kind of spread it out a little bit like this so that it becomes little old age on with that you can create really amusing texture and anything brush round brush for painting trees would be sufficient. So she in for this painting I'm using a Can this board, however, even use a stretched canvas or kampusch eat anything is fine and some tissue paper. So that's all you media guys in this building. Not much off our supplies. Just some actually. Colors played plus water brushes on a canvas on You are all good to go to create this beautiful day. 3. Techniques To Guide You Create This Painting: so this we don't wanna be showing you a little bit of picnic that before you start thinking so this is a fresh. Make sure that the bristle is a little vital at the Mount, so it's not. You can just use your finger to open it up like this so that its little spread around. What you do is you take your own fresh, just a mount of the bristle into the pain and don't pick up a lot just becoming on the tip off, the personal on you. Come on, just very check to see if you have with a lot of pressure. This is what you get, but this is not what you want. You want something like this where a lot of background case and I don't live it. So you see, the tree structure is what it's almost like. Leaves that you're getting, even if you have done something like Discipline Office. I was create seeing leave, So this isn't exercise that as insurance to practice before you get to go painting, because this is a technique that Lord in dissecting. It's called a technique where you just keep doing tapping, but not for a pressure filling pages so that you get this. I thought it it should not trick off during this leading. So just back, this is a little bit on Obsidian paper. Last read before. 4. Basic guideline of dissecting the painting: Okay, so this is how we're gonna paint this painting. We're gonna break it down in several steps in step one. We're gonna block in the colors on the forest floor and love the colors on the route as well, instead, to we're gonna love the colors in the sky In step three we're gonna beat layers on the forest floor and create all the textures instead For we're gonna treat the trees and branches constrict five We're gonna beamed the flowers on the trees and add a little bit of detailing on the forest floor In step six we're gonna be in the front trees on We want to add all the final So let's dive in. 5. Step 1: Paint the Forest Floor: here is a quick review off the entire part of the painting that you want to be learning in this step, which is basically feeling in colors on the forest floor and the road in between. Let's start by drawing the brief off lines sketching off the painting. No cure. I'm not using a pencil to dried out. It's a very simple line, so just using my paintbrush and colors from my plate here, musically yellow and orange to do off lining just draw an approximate off lining off the Forest Road. Now it does not have to be accurate. Even if you were a little bit here and there, it's always, you know, a making up later, using your father's so it doesn't have to be exact now. After that, I start backing off the forest floor, using yellow and orange again. No, here is one thing that I want you to notice that I'm not mixing the colors on my plate. I'm mixing them up on the canvas every time I'm picking up a yellow or orange and I'm brushing it on my campus. Do not have any water I'm not using. Any water is just your color and absolutely drive us to make sure you have really less pain on your fresh on. Just keep blaming them. Very ruffled. It does not have to be in any particular direction. Like you see, I'm not going in a horizontal direction or vertical direction. I'm just going in absolute random directions on just blocking off the color. And it's nice to see that arm again. Visits doesn't get the color off light orange. It's you concede both yellow and orange on my canvas at this point in time. So after this African, a little bit of brown and red, absolutely, absolutely less color. Don't be couple of color. Then you won't be with blended in with the previous color that we have added, and it will outline it will. It will just make it look very much reddish brown. So next year, but you're absolutely, absolutely less color on. I'm Dr Stroking drives talking. I mean that I'm taking up my brush is absolutely tried on with very less spent on just stroking it here and there, so that in a previous origin, yellow color does not get completely global shadow. And in some places, as you can see Now I am taking a little bit of yellow and orange. Well, I'm following it up. Keep taking a little bit of yellow, a little bit of orange, just and just keep adding glue. The strips here and there. Like I said before, it does not have to be one solid color. It actually should not be. You should keep taking different colors and just keep doing dry strokes. Try. Stroke is very, very important in creating this painting. If you have too much of water on your brush, you will not get this kind of effect. This effect comes only from having a very dry brush and dry colors. Very, very less come. So pick up three less color, and all I do is talking it here and there. Just give uneven surface to the forest floor again. This is just a bad law that you are creating their just blocking off the color. It does not have to be accurate because talk off this week with the color of the flowers and bringing on more years on top. It will be building at least one or two layers on top, so this is just the first layer at the background. All my target sure in doing is that a zit could notice. I'm keeping it a little bit light across the road. A little bit darker was the ages, So it was the age I'm using more brown and red and was the boat and using board yellow so that the light and shadow is working perfectly. As of now, in my bathroom left and in between just adding a little touch of red on, I just don't make it a little colorful. And just so it doesn't look very more tennis with just together, or is it just a little touch up off? And as you can see, my gosh is very, very trying. It's absolutely dry. So dry is one of the keen, necessary going in mind who loved this kind of structure fixture. So keep Dr Bashing on the colors. Whatever you want to add, I'm just living it up more on the roadside. Just make like make it look more like just little strokes off yellow and brown just at the yellow. After adding just push it, little bit was left to blend it in with the forest floor. It should not look like a yellow is just standing out off like a lot of yellow on the roadside. It should Bram in really well with the other colors that there. So it's also very important that you're doing it a little faster than slower. So that follows. Are you are able to blame Minute? Let it in before the palace have tried. Okay, now let's start filling up. As you can see, I have barely any amount of paint on my brush. I'm thinking really less amount of ground, Um, very less paint and drives, talking it like I said before and mixing it with a little bit of white every time I two colors to be able to blame any blend on, Sure that extra off this office off whichever please right now for the food, I need to show the texture. So to be able to do that, you always need my fellas. You can do it with one. No adding, looking out of touch up with Obama, I don't know if the shoe as wreck, so for turning brown into English red with a little bit, and I was told I had add a little provide so that white and bringing it down toe be to blend in with all the brown and red that I did not lift a little black, but the black has to be absolutely tiny, tiny bit. You cannot take too much of blood. Otherwise, the black will overshadow all the previous colors because black is a very high pigmented color, so make sure you're taking absolutely less black. And as you can see, all my strokes off the road are so much visited, you can see all the strokes that have taken at the again before, so make sure it's stroke you're not or doing the straw. And I'm going on off the previous truth that you have done and you leave it as it is but head here. Don't try to get too perfectionist on key, blending over and over order off each of the layers, so let it be visible as it is and just keep playing around with all the strokes. Let the strokes visible. Now I live about a black to create a little bit of shadow effect on the room. Like I said, like and shop is one of the very important aspect off clearly a landscape, so it has to be a combination of contrast off my attention. So that is what I'm trying to do here. I think people have back bones as it is, brings back because it is more doctor was back off the road. It is Booth Forest. I played very, very less pressure while you're doing this kind of shooting because pressure is very important. If you put a lot of pressure on your brush, it will not let all the colors to show through and all the strokes will not be visible. So make sure that when you are putting pressure while painting it with a brush, your pressure is very, very gentle. It's almost like a fate of Dutch while you're touching. So at this point, much robe is completely covered up, and I'm just creating a little bit of strokes on top off just to make it look nicer. Because, like I said again, it's just a bad wrongly that I'm doing right now. On top of this, there's gonna be a lot more color coming up. So all I'm doing is just brush stroking very lightly, very gently, with few off the colors toe. Let the strokes be visible so adding little start off white with the same brush. Have noticed I haven't washed my brush. Taylor, My grand blast off. What? We still fresh? I'm using the exact same brush that I started at the beginning. Worked on from yellow to orange to red, brown black I haven't washed and I'm continuing with the same brush because it has all the previous fellas Also remember So my brush you can see at the bottom of the broad bristle even see yellow and orange is still there. If I put a little pressure, that will come out But I don't know man amusing started off my bristle to add in all the strokes off the road using a little bit of black and adding a little bit of Blackstone Little doctor strokes. I once it's glad because it's nor absolutely dark life. I'm using absolutely tiny to create some strokes on the road. Now I would wipe my brush on people just to get rid of all the existing that I might have on with their lives toe back and brown that I have just dries talking it on the forest floor just to give a little bit of dark attempt was the end where the sky and the first floor will mix just absolutely dry, brushing it absolutely less. Whatever you can see, almost there is no paint on my brush and just blend it off with the remaining bait. 6. Step 2: Paint the Sky: here is a quick snake big off the part of the painting that you're gonna be learning in the state, which is basically coloring the sky on blending it with the ground. So let's start die Feeling in the blue white, A little bit of black, Absolutely little bit of black and absolutely dry brush. Keep making rocks. Troops in the sky area on the site Do not stop in the same area because we're gonna be doing it a little bit darker on the sides and lighter in the center to give the whole perspective off the painting. Okay, just to make it look like the forest is going inside, the road is going inside the forest. Right? So all I'm doing is mixing. I'm not a cleaning the whole mix and keeping it together because I like to create freedom picking up the follow. So all I'm mixing is blue, white and black, and remember to keep absolutely, absolutely less blood. Don't take too much of black. Otherwise the whole blue will become very toe black, which is not what we want. We want to make the blue a little bit blackish. That's it. Again, just like the ground. Just go in general directions make random strokes on while you are touching the ground. Don't color too much. Don't go on the ground and keep you as you can see my brushes totally dry. I don't have too much of color or water. I do not have at all does. So just keep stroking on the white area off the canvas because that target is first of all to cover in the complete campus and then a little bit more off extreme. As you can see, I am picking up a little bit of light blue in between. Also, as I'm approaching the centre of the sky, I'll be applying more off the light it on, seeing applying more light tone your But I still have a little bit of black left over from the previous part that I did. I haven't washed my brush it, so the black is still remaining in my brush. Now, as we approach the ground level, don't create a straight line out off the ground. Just continue a little bit of blue on the orange area on the ground area, very, very softly, very gently. At this time, you're not putting too much pressure, and we need very, very slowly. So make sure you're not applying too much of color here because if you apply, too much of colorful overshadowed up for it and we don't want that we want to do to blame, then with orange, very softly, very gently. Look at my strokes over here. It's very gentle, very soft. And after blending the ground, I'm just putting a couple of strokes in the sky as it seemed. The painting. All of these talks are not going to be visible because it's always go in the bathroom once the trees start coming. But still, I like to create a beautiful texture whenever painting anything, even though this part of the background now starting to paint let side. So again, from the lighter stone in the center, I'm gonna go move on to more top iTunes on the left, just like I did the right here. I'm trying to blend in a little bit with the ground. Not too much, just little bit. We're gonna do the complete blending a little later. Just add a little bit of light of doors in the same time, make sure you have absolutely absolutely less pain to guys on your brush. If you have less paint, you can create beautiful strokes that picture again and creating the blend off blue, black and white, and I'm wearing it. Form the ages off. You can see how try it ISS and very gently molded with the lighter blue door that you're done in here on a little bit of light of blue on the dark blue just to make it look. Blend it in. See how softly when I'm coming closer to the light of tone in the center, stroking my brush very gently so that it doesn't make a stroke sharp stroked in between the colors, it should be blending in very gently, even if it doesn't, I still worry because, like I said, it's all gonna go in the background. But I just like to create the nice pictures in the background as well. Make sure when you're coloring from moving from the tox toe to the lighter tone in the center, make sure you're taking a little bit off color. It just engages. Your central area has tried already. Make sure you're picking up a little bit of light on the dark crush like you have already The doctor illustrate on your brush when you're doing sides. So make sure you're picking a little bit of black and white. You're while you're doing it. But this blue will not be the fresh blew off the light blue color because you already have a black in your brush. So it's not gonna be that that fresh, but that's okay. Just keep lending as much you can, keeping in mind that we are going to keep it light in the center and doctor on the phone booth sites. I'm taking more off lighter blue to blend in with the orange because we're not going to keep a sky and the ground completely separated from each other, as in just blue ends and the orange starts. What we're gonna do now is gonna lead the blue on the orange together, so that looks like a power painting and it doesn't look like to segregated areas. OK, so that's how the beauty of this painting will come. So now what I'm doing is I'm bringing a little bit of blue absolutely, absolutely sculler and with dry strokes and bringing it on the orange area. And as you can see with the tribe brush and giving a little bit of dry stores in the center . Like I said, because of all the doctors from the side, it is becoming more DACA, so feel free to add more likely the center. But whenever you're adding, make sure to blend it in with dots on the side. This is the best part of the acrylic painting that even if you do something wrong, you can always go back and correct it. You can always keep on adding paint on top off the previous layer, and you can add as many lives as pregnancy and lighter toe and the doctor on the same brush because a little bit of orange same rush with the washing it because you want the blue and the orange to mix. Do you know what color? Because when it when you mix blue and orange, it becomes a muddy brown, and that's exactly the color we want, because any was later gonna act more of brown on the ground. But at the moment, what is happening is orange and blue is mixing on, giving us a very nice ground that we actually want in this pain So that's how we're going to do the planning. So wherever the blue and the orange is meeting, it was gonna look like brownish as you can see, this model color that is being home, which is basically the color of the road. But make sure that when you're picking up orange, you're really beginning really, really less spent. Two guys. If you pick up really a lot of pain, it's gonna wish I do the blue again, and we don't want to overshadow any of the Taliban want. Mix off hope the colors in the right proportion again. Like I said before, it's all over in the background was the trees start coming, so don't fret over it too much, even if it is not absolutely forfeit. It's totally fine, but it's all in the bag. So as a non profit is, choose to apply the colors blue and orange together and blend in the sky and the ground as beautiful as it take a little bit of yellow. Also, if you want to blend in and keep lending as much, you can as much again. But just don't overdo it. If you feel you have already achieved the kind of blending you want, you can just leave it. I'm just adding, like I said earlier, another layer off orange on top, off the blending that have done just to not make it look too dark. So are in a bit of orange, on top of the dark blending that we didn't previously. And he was, We're gonna do the texture on the ground in the next step. So not doing too much, but I'm just study a little bit of it in this step. But anyways, our petition heart to the text string in the next step, so don't worry about it. Don't afraid over doing what I'm doing right now. If we just leave it as it is, you can see how beautifully my blue is coming to brown and brown. Move on toe orange. There is, you can say, really, where the blue and the orange are actually getting separated now, washing my brush completely clean because I want to add a fresh layer of blue in the center . Wash your brush and dried clean and fresh white on blue and added in the center. But do not have much of water. In that case, you won't be blended in properly with all the text during that I'm doing so. Make sure your brushes try throughout the beating, and I'm heading a little bit of blue and white in the center exactly the same way we added value. But somehow it wasn't really bright because of the presence of black in the brush, just a little bit of back and blended it with the Dr Off Blue that you have on the site put absolutely less pressure. Gentle pressure is one of the key techniques off doing this technique, right? So make sure you are not putting in too much of pressure at the very, very less pressure, as I could see again just planning it in with the doctor stones on the sides. That's a I'm bringing down top of orange as well. Little bit just blended in with the Orange Country much, and that's it. We are at the end of the day 7. Step 3: Create Textures on Forest Floor: here is a quick Smith big off the bottle painting that you're gonna be learning in the stairs, which is adding extra ring, which is my most favorite. What you guys think. Look at the pictures. All right, so now let's start the steps slowly together. First thing that I'm doing is mixing yellow and orange little bit on the tip of my brush. Make sure you don't have too much of paint on your brush. Take absolutely, absolutely less. Paint off the tip of the brush and keep gabbing on your canvas. That's a small treat. Guys, just keep dabbing. You are not brushing it. True, you're just having that. That's all you're doing. I am not. None of my strips are actually stroking. All I'm doing is small steps. And while stabbing, what I'm doing also is a nor completely covering the Kansas. I'm keeping a little bit of back long to be shown through dead. As you can see, I'm adding delighted tones off the hotel dark background that we have only yellow and orange, and I'm adding a tender dabbing technique. He is able to do it now. Look at the data and Dignity College is happening. You are no dragging your brush from left to right or right left. All you're doing is stabs at that on your canvas and while doing the dabbing on the side of the road. What I'm also doing is and bring it a little bit inside the road. As you can see on top of the yellow, I have kept it a little bit inside, adding a little bit of a raid. So we're gonna be playing around with these three colors and a little bit of brown. Also later, yellow orange. We're gonna use two colors alternately at all time, so the tape having technique will not work if you're using only one color, because if you use one color, diving will not be visible. You always have to use two colors. At this point of time, I'm using the word of red and orange. You have to use two colors fortunately, and do that each other so that one of the color is visible. So what, you're I'm adding a little bit of origin double brown. But the brown is already there, so it displayed as the 2nd 1 with the orange are bringing it and living inside the road because we don't want that one, the whole to be crystal lying on the size. We don't want a crystal clear line on the side. We want the flowers, too, from inside the rules to make it look more. All we're doing is stepping with yellow orange alternately and coming in front of in between the road. That's eight, guys. This is what you have to keep doing. This entire stare Keep alternating between colors, so I'm taking yellow in the narrow end off the road, and any time I'm adding yellow, I'm moving toe orange to blended in. Make sure you are doing gentle taps. You're not putting in too much of pressure. Use just the tip of the brush to tap it in. I'm not using my complete person to do this step. I'm using just the tip off the person. Just pick up a little bit of paint on the tip off your Brazil and come on canvas and blew the dabbing. That's all and all of a particular off another aspect at the very bottom aspect, which is the colors which followed toe added there. So what we're doing here is we're adding lighter tones closer to the road and that it was the age of the campus. So we hear. I'm adding the raid on the orange tones, wants the site with the right keep alternating between the colors. Bringing a little bit of yellow in between is to make the brighter again on the right side as well. Just like what we did on the left side. We're bringing in the flowers on the world so that the age of the road is not visited. Clearly, as you can see with the bristle off the off the tip off Mike bristle I'm trying to create little penal lines were doing this double technique. I don't want a very takes True While doing this, I want a leave Tina line the level of the lines that are getting inside the road. You can see how between the lines up so you could get Take us, try to make it pain. Try to place a bristle lab so that the tip of the prison becomes flat and it gives you straight line okay and more like to tone close to the road somatic more yellow there while doing this part you don't have to do exactly what I'm doing, bringing the flowers as much you want on the road. Just don't do too much, but really free to use your own imagination, bringing the flowers on the road so that it looks like flowers, a fallen on top of the road. Do it with your own imagination, however you want to interpret. No, I am taking a bit of brown to catch up with the roadside, so as of now, and to create a little bit of shadows also on the ground. So all these grounds that I'm adding they are going toe be the shadow of the trees that are coming up in the next step. So we're doing a little bit of wrong now. Letter we after painting the trees, we are going to add a little more shadows later that to begin with, because we are on the picturing the ground step. So we are adding a little bit off, shadowing off right now itself, not too much as you can see. I'm having really, really Les Brown and already my previous colors a little bit, so I don't have to take another color to do the blending because the colors are already here. And, as you can see, while I'm adding the brown, do not act too much. Keep little gap in between so that the three behind colors like the orange gala, the raid that still very much visible and trying. I'm trying to create small, small gaps small more lines with brown, as you can see now if you have no basis, I have no washed my brush since the starting off this so I'm So I started with yellow, orange trade movinto brown and then again moved back together, all with the same brush you can see my water is completely clean. As you know, I have no washed my brush even once now taking a little bit of black. But it's not just your black. I already had ground. So I have taken a little bit of black and I really would more kept to the shadows. Not too much. Don't have much of black, and also, when you're taking black guys, remember to take absolutely tiny bit of because just a tiny, tiny bit of black will give you a lot of dark. But if you take a lot of blood, you can't undo it. So start with taking absolutely Leslie Later, if you need, you can on more black if required. But don't start with a lot of black. So your first of all, I haven't used just black. I have taken black and brown mix, and very soon the black is over. Alum, my calories moves on to Dr Brown. Keep leading it in brown, black, yellow, orange, red. That's all you got Have all this color Just legend with small areas Don't make it all the way. As you can see, all my strokes are really, really small, distant strokes and I think it's already starting to look like a ground full off flowers. I hope you guys have been able to do this tape really well because if they really easy dead once you master the technique 8. Step 4: Paint the Trees & Branches: So here is again a very quick sneak peek off the part painting that you're gonna alone in this step, which is creating the trees off different colors to show the perspective off the painting. All right, so let's get started now. We, um we want to The small brush and the color better mixing is blue, black and white. Make sure it's absolutely, absolutely light of shared and not too much dark. So we're starting with the light of tones of all you're doing is adding straight lines. Now. These lines does not have to be absolutely straight length because trees are not straight lines, they are a little bit of weight lines, so don't worry. If you're not able to create straight lives, that's totally fine. That's actually better. Don't create absolute straight. As you can see, my colleague is not absolutely great because I have a blue addict, so it's blue, white and black, but almost like grayish bluish gray color. So, as you can see, I'm doing the distant trees, which are lighter tones like stones, other distant trees as as you come start moving forward. Your trees colors are going to get Dr Absolute Front one is one of the most blackish. All right, so now we're gonna do different variations of colors here. So after doing the very latitude, you can start at a little bit more blue and black in it to make it more taco. So you are a little bit more blue and black on our little Doctor Jones and just keep adding the straight lines all the way from left to right. Start coming a little bit down on the orange as well as you're moving forward. You can see the distant one. Lighted trees are more in the far background so that their height is also really hyo on the motion moving inside the forest keep coming down on the orange layer as well. Even if two lines get on top of each other, it's totally buying. Do not worry about it Now. I'm starting to make believe it of Dr Tunes, which means a little bit more front trees are coming up now, which means I am adding more off blue and black to my shades. So keep making the tools as moving forward, and here I'm starting to make a little bit of branches, also as you can see. All you're doing is making a white at the tip. That's how we will make a branch. Also one of the things that I would like to mention over Juries. Make sure you have a good amount of water because in all the previous steps have been dating to keep it dry brush. But over here, while you're working with a small brush, make sure you have a good amount of water in your brush toe. Make you paint the trees because if you have a dry crashing one, they will do. Make a smooth line in one. Short, As you can see in mantra, I can create the whole tree from bottom up. That's only because I have a good amount of water in my brush. Now trying to create the country's with a little bit more darker colors, which is almost like black and blue makes have a good amount of water guys on your brush while you're mixing the colors as you have noticed that I don't mix my colors and keep them ready on the plate as I as and when I go, I keep complaining them and I keep making creating the palace and I keep using them. So what happens? One of the benefits of doing that is you don't get the same shape in all the trees. So that way you it looks like you have more than ideal, please, more debt off trees, because if you have only one shade, it will make it look like as if there is like one layer off trees. So every time I'm taking color, I'm mixing the colors and I'm losing it, giving different variations of the cheese. Making them slant was right or left. None of these have to be exact when you were doing so. Don't worry too much about making exactly what I'm doing. Just make sure that you're doing that black ones really well, the front trees, especially the ones that I'm doing now. But the back grants. It really doesn't matter. You can just do it, however, you want to just make sure that that you're keeping the cutters in that light so it might. It is looking like glad to you guys, but it's not laughed. It is a mix of black, all the black ones that you're at Leavitt of branches. I'm not being too much of that is to get better at flowers on top of it, and most of the brush gonna be hidden. So not adding too much, just focused on making that country's Linda trees again. Don't focus too much on the broad based off the trees because we've got a little bit with the flowers later. I'm just extending a little bit down all the trees because, as you saw, I have been taking my strokes or most of the time from bottom. But because they're not comfortable doing that, you can also take it from top to down. That's all totally fine. But if you want, you can just extend it down a little bit later. Also, that's also totally fine. I really like this landing trees that I'm doing right now because they give a lot of death not just straight line trees, but little bit slanting on the left or right. They make really make me the painting look really nice. Make sure you're using absolutely the tip off your brush to create the branches and Miss Teen don't make them too fat because the peanut branches makes it look very deal. That's it. Not much left you can actually countries if you want to, But anything that's all for me not, but I have to much more. Take your time. I know I really, really fast, but you can take your time, watch the videos, slow it down, cause it and create all the trees off your choice. Whichever directions you want on to make it look really, really nice. That's a that's aimed off our state for and very soon we're going to do the flowers off the truth the next time. 9. Step 5: Paint the Flowers: here is a quick sneak peek off the part of painting that you can alone in this state, which is creating the flowers on the trees and adding a little bit of flowers on the ground and road. All right, so let's get started. Good signable. Far here. We're gonna create the same flowers that we created in step tree are the pictures that we created on the ground Exactly the same texture, same technique. Only thing is, we're gonna add it on the trees in front of the branches. So now all you're doing is the same dabbing technique using three colors yellow, orange on red. And make sure that you're not completely covering the blue background. You are adding, getting leaving a distance in between for all the text shoes off flowers that you're reading and you're using only the tip off the bristles toe. Create the flowers. Make sure to apply absolutely less pressure. Don't at too much of pressure so that it off the color comes like blood. The color has to come very lives on the canvas with little bit of gaps in between. So make sure you are using a brush with the breeze is a little wide open so that you can clear this stick Texts show really, really well again. I'm switching between yellow or in shred. Alternately. It doesn't matter which column you are doing where as long you're mixing off the colors a little bit, just don't mix them up on the plate and put it up. Just pick up the three fellas separately and keep adding there. Pressure is one of the very important step in this technique, so make sure to add absolutely less pressure. Very gentle touch on the canvas over here in the center area, off the canvas, a map like even less pressure because these are kind of like a distant flowers that were doing it very right. Doing the back too much of colors over your very less here. I'm using a very, very oId brush to do this technique. So where in which the prisons are already quite wide open. So I am able to get this picture really well without doing putting in much effort. You can select the flowers a little bit more by nearly light rooms on top again. Don't add too much what happens over here in this state What I've realized is people keep adding too much. You don't want to block the all the beautiful trees and the background that you have done. I'm just having a little catch up to the floor. The ground where the flowers are have fallen. Do that too much, just a little bit of Thatcher. You can specially add a little touch of at the bottom off the tree so that it looks like the tree base is covered in flowers. Add a little extra on the road on the roadside, making sure that the base off all the trees are looking nice. I had a little extra yellow just to give my life to the pending. Remember the center off the canvas is lighter, and the sides are DACA some Alec little lighter terms off Gallo in the centre on the road area to give that light and shadow effect off the painting. So for any painting, it's very important that you you you paint the light of the shadow very perfectly. That gives the tape for the painting off, especially of a landscape painting on that makes you painting. Looks good, have a little shows. The perspective for this painting perspective is very important because it looks like the dude is getting inside the it's in the forest. So make sure that you are making a doctor on the sides on a little bit of light tones in the center. It's the same technique. Make sure you're not adding too much of color. I have mentioned that quite a lot of times. Make sure just adding lee really less touch up off colors wherever you're doing. This stature don't act too much because the ground is already down. You're adding a little bit off brown on the road just to blend it in with the flowers. - Do you know that too much of yellow or orange at one place keep them separated? This ad England touch up on the tree as well. Using the same technique, I'm adding a little bit of brown on the road as well. Even though the road is already textured at the beginning, we just adding a little bit of the same technique using which we added the flowers on the ground. So using the same technique, we're adding a little bit of texture on the road as well, and I'm adding a little bit of black and brown together, so the front off the road is more darker than the inside place inside road that is going inside the forest has. You can see I am doing limbered of shadows on the right side of the road, adding multiple layers of shadows off the same place which have already painted, gives the more three D look off the painting, just having little or flowers once again on the age off the road. It's already done. You can stop here, or you can just keep doing little bit. Just don't overdo it, because we are almost done with this step of just having a little bit of matchups here and there. But make sure you're doing it in moderation. Don't overdo it as that's the end off our state. Five. I hope you guys did the flowers really well, and you have done little patch on the ground as well. So I'll see you guys in the next step, where we're gonna finish the painting 10. Step 6: Paint the Front Trees & Final Touch up: Well, here is a quick snake big off the entire part of the painting that you want to learn in this tape on actually gonna finish it. All right, so let's start the final part of the painting. So, no, we're gonna create some of the front trees, absolutely in the front on for this on using a small brush again on just black paint to make sure you tell you the pain quite a bit. And I'm a little bit of brown along with the black, just a little touch of brown. As you can see, I'm not mixing the color in the plate. I chose just picking up brown and add a little bit of shadows on the tree drunk that I just created. And this is quite ticker on big O than the other trees that we have done before. And I'm doing one more just next to it with complete lack and I'll England but of brown on its right side again. These are my two front trees, just adding a little bit to the peace, not too much, adding with the same brush with the same colors, black and brown just adding a little touch up of shadow. So light and shadow is very important part of the landscape painting. If you do it right, it looks almost like real. So what I'm doing here is our only leverage. Shadow through the trees on. I'm having a little bit of black and brown touch up to the lift off all the trucks. As you can see, it's not a very bored follow with just a little bit of color. I'm almost like Dr Rushing it, adding a little bit to the right and left doomed color used too much of color in this state , while doing this was very less color on most drive crashing and add a little bit of lecturing on top off all the pictures that we have done using the small brush and brown on black. Next, I'm just adding a little bit of lines in between to show the shadow off the trees and all the other random stuff on the forest floor. A Z can see. I'm not putting too much pressure while doing this. I'm using a very gentle pressure so that the colors are not very dark on the floor on the forest floor, so using very less pressure on the same colors and adding a little bit off shadowing this technique you can do with the flat brush, which we did for the flowers. So I'm using a small brushes to add a little bit affection. - It is almost like dry brush technique where you're not really adding too much of now. I'm adding looted of branches that have fallen on the ground. So these are a couple of projects, very less. It's not very prominent, so I'm not making it really bold black. But you can see it's in the shape of the branches, so it's almost like some of the branches from the trees and falling on the floor. Now we are almost at the end of the painting. Brave job five. So now I'm doing just a little bit of catch up with the same technique off the flowers. So there is nothing much. I'm just adding a little bit of colors here, there, wherever I feel like you can choose to ignore this part, or you can keep doing little bit along with me. So there is nothing exact specific that I can tell you. You're I'm just adding very, very little touch up off yellows and oranges and reds everywhere. Wherever I feel like adding a little bit extra, especially on the joining off the road and the ground, I'm adding a little bit more touchable together so that the world line is not visible anymore. The line that I drew at the very beginning on the first step, all I'm doing in this is adding little flowers on the ground and now over at very little bit of flour on the tree background. So very, very less color. Don't add too much color. This is just optional, I could have added at the previous tapes, but I did not feel like adding at that time. And now I look at a little bit more color, mostly white and yellow, in this step of adding on very less because I want to add this as a distant tree flower, not the front tree flowers, because the front, crunchy as you can see the little brighter and bolder. So you are a matter a little bit of white and yellow in the background trees, and not just to make them look in the background. I'm adding a little bit off a tree trunk color on top off them so that it comes in front so that it doesn't look like the flowers in the front. This is just to make the make the flower look like in the background. So I am painting the tree trunk that going from the front once again to look them in the front. Now those flowers are looking like they are in the far behind trees, and I married a little touch up on the branches, also on some off the trees. And that painting is almost all guys. I hope you have done it well, and I'm so excited to see what you guys have painted. Just a little bit more touch up here and there Really nothing extra. I'm doing Hill, adding a few branches headed there on That's it, That's the end off are pending. Great job, guys. 11. Conclusion and Final Words: you guys.
