About This Class

Hello Everyone !

Welcome to this beautiful painting challenge. In this class we will be learning different Aquatic Life Paintings like different types of fishes, corals, amphibians, etc. with 1 new painting coming up each day. I have used different colors & techniques to create all of these beautiful marine life paintings and I am sure that by the end of this class you will master most of them with practice by painting along with me.

We start by knowing all the materials required, understanding the different techniques through each watercolor painting as we paint them one by one everyday. This class is suitable for all levels but a basic understanding of watercolors will for sure be an advantage. If you are new to the medium, you can definitely watch by earlier class on 'The Beginners Guide to Watercolors' to know about the basics.

Materials Required: So now let's quickly see the Megarians like me. So far is too far. I'll be using this small sketchbook. This is a 300 GSM, 100 percent cotton watercolor paper sketchbook. And sizes almost E6 says, which is half of E5. So I'll be using that. You can use any sketchbook similar to this, you can use even a bigger salespeople or sketchbook. Not a problem. Make sure it does watercolor paper, so it will help you get good results. Apart from this, we'll obviously need some watercolors, so I'll be using these bands sandwich I have, I have converted my itself by making the job's and Luke bands. So if you have four strangle your lessons earlier classes, you will be knowing more about this. So you can use any watercolor is that you have, then you will need some round brushes. So I'll be using these basic round brushes. You will need 10 number brush, won the war phone number brush on another slightly bigger brush for certain things, like a six numbered our brush. So these three will be enough for our being banks. Apart from that, we need a normal pencil, sketches, drawings. First, I am using this state lab and pencil, but you can use any pencil that you have. And we'll also need an eraser. So I'm using these needs liabilities are for this, but you can use any normally lasers with naughty problem. And apart from this, obviously we need to side towards their job is to clean our brushes. So while looking in our brushes and secondo load our brush with clean water. So we need those Wartburg jars and we lead a dish should be bought to just back off the excess water or from our brush, I will peak in the brush. So yeah, that's it. This is the Sigma detail which we'll need for this class, and you don't need anything fancy. So to start with the class and enjoy it. 3. Day 01 - Clown Fish: So let's start with the basic drawing forest. I am using my E6 sketchbook. This is my watercolor sketchbook that I'm using. And I'll just use our normal technical pencil to draw this. You can use any symbol events is that you have. And first of all, we'll start with the volume of the fish. So we are growing the clownfish and be adding one by one all the pencil sketches references for you all in the resource section. So you can just check it from there if you are not the way to Troy, perfect, lean on the problem. You can always go back to them and trace them and use them for your being done. So firstly, I'm just drawing a simple shape or for fish. You can see I've started with the head part. I am bunching it outwards to get a nice body. And then at the end, I have drawn a very simple deal of the fish. So this is how you go about the body of the fish. Then we just draw a nice so good for the eye. By after that, we had on the fin side, the sides. So this is a pretty decent bluefish to start with. So that's why I have chosen this to begin with. Anger looks very vibrant as value when we calculate. So I'm starting with the fins, adding the fins on the sides of the fish. And then we'll add the centers stripes of the fish, as well as this front heel. Also when you are drawing this, you can draw this comparatively very lately, I am just drawing your dog so that the pencil marks are nicely visible to you all in the camera. But you can definitely draw them as light as possible because we don't want the pencil marks to be seen after the Schroedinger is completed. So if you have completed with this drawing, I just use my notability zone and just make the drawing of it like DO because I don't want the pencil marks to be seen once I'm done with being done because what the bellows as an comparatively very transparent medium and that's why you will be able to see the pencil lines if they are dark. So I don't want that. That's why I am just making them later by erasing of the darkness of the lens. And this is pretty nice now it's nicely visible so that I can start building on it. So now let's start with the water wash for the background. So I am just trying to avoid the fish and just doing a little wash at the background portion, since we are doing just abstract backgrounds for this fishes. And then when you are done with the wash. Just take some orange color on your brush. Not very big manga you can see it's nicely that you get with water. And I'm just giving a nice abstract look to the entire background with this orange color. Learned maker. Do that because we want the mean forecast beyond the fish that we are drawing and not on the background. So give the backgrounds as light as possible. If you feel that the background colors gone too dark or if you feel like responding inside the fish, you can always use your distributed but with clear when the load is still wet and tap off the excess fellow which you learned one from the people like this, simply tap your distributed but pick up the extra furlough which has gone inside the fish or Effort Score dark god at the background, and you will be able to fix it right away. So now we'll start painting the fish directly. For that. I have started with my orange color. I have given a nice dark pigment color at the top portion. And after that, I just use my weight brush to spread the color downwards as I move down and blended nicely together. Nice shade of dark red, orange, blue ladle. Make sure we got coloring the head. You don't get the IADL. Leave that and apart from that, didn't afford strip in direly, you can just be the topmost Gallo with darker orange pigment. And after that, just use your wet brush and just try to blend in the orange nicely as you move downwards so that it starts getting slightly laid down and gives an ice sheet do your entire fish. So we are going to leave the strips, the jazz there. And since they are supposed to be white and gallo. So we're not going to be int anything on those strips. We are just going to use that actually people wait for that. I'm. Apart from that, we all just follow the alternate paths with orange like this in a similar way. And then this dropping a little top edge, I'm blending nicely to get on taco shell at the top. So let's repeat this for all the alternate parts. Hi. In. So the immune system. Hi, hi, hi. Now for the fins will call boil the fence with our orange color directly. So just to mix a little amount of water to the orange color, I'm directly give the plane orange shape to all your fins. And after that, just take a liberal amount of mammalian red in your brush. And underweight got inch color, Excel features died a few stripes or strokes with the red color. To give it a nice texture, a nice icon on the fence. We'll do the same for all defense that are there. When you year. Hi. Let's just modify the background object again. So for diagram again, giving an ice, water washed my entire background first. Before you start doing this, make sure that your FX wave just leading into the wash so we don't want that. Make sure your flourishes and dilute write-up. And also try to avoid going over the fish Bard when giving this whitewater wash. You started on that though entire color Liao of the fish try to avoid that area and apart from that for the background, give the water wash and then just take some orange color in your brush. Just accelerated amount of water with your orange color first, I'm just take some orange color in your brush and start tapping your brush like this to get these nice sprinkles on the people with the orange color to get a nice abstract effect. Now when the background washes still awake, I am just adding a few lines and alert the line the idea with the same orange color. I wonder it to be a very soft and abstract background. I don't want the background can be very prominent. That's why I'm doing this on the wake wash so that we get nice blurred and soft edges and we don't get a prominent around so that the fishes details and the background remains just like a supporting element and some abstractness. After that this week for your background to dry. And then we'll start detailing how the fish. So I have taken my black color in my smallest size brush and I am just making this circle for the eye. Make sure to leave a little white circle at the central part of the eye. I'm just being a nice black border to the eye. And we'll also be digitally how the entire fish with a nice black border. So just observe carefully how I am using this border, because the border is supposed to be 10 accident Bart's and it will be thicker act so then barks. So use that in this brush that you have for this, I'm just observes that I am making that to not a board led by using the tip of the brush. And that I am pressing my brush a little bit more to get a particular border. So that's how you will get different strokes with the same brush. So use that in experts that you have. I am using my 0 number brush for this and void the brush war degree to get a nice thin wall that accident Bart's I am just slightly a bit more to get that thicker border at certain places. Thank you. Once you are done with the black border, just take a little amount of orange color I did with water again in your brush and drop a few sprinkles with that. Now since your background has dried up, like, well, not just mix with the background, but we'll create nice sports with the orange color. So we want a few sports with the audience colors. I have IT goals. And I'm just adding a few strokes off or in certain places. This, we are done with this beautiful little painting. I hope you enjoyed doing it. See you again in the next lesson. 4. Day 02 - Whale: So now we'll start sketching the basic fish. I'm again using the same materials which I had mentioned earlier in the materials lesson. So first before I start sketching though, really with the pencil, you can sketch it lightly. I'm just scattered a breakdown goods, So that gives visibility for you all. And I will be erasing off the extra dark lines lead to run. And so we have started with the basic body shape of the wing and just complete the bill. And if you still find that gets difficult to sketch this for you, then you can definitely go do that project resource section. And I have added all the files late as and when I want a building the class, I will solve your though sketching files so you can just bring it out from there. I increase it out on your watercolor paper and then start the endangered if you just want to enjoy the blending process, we don't want to sketch it, not a problem, you can do that. So after Dad, I just divided it in the central bite with a line like a gold Blaine, I either the eye and just complete the goal blame here. So that is the lower portion of the fish. And now I just made those sketch a bit late built by erasing it off. I'm using my neoliberalism. Do it is of the darker pencil lines you get done with an eraser that you have. You can use any pencil to draw this. So it really depends upon your guide to the North matter that much. So don't worry about that. Okay, Now that we have taken off the excess lines, I start taking off my beings. So I am using my crimson red color here. And do that, I am adding my violet color to get a nice sheet of fopen. You can use Delete key or light-absorbing sheet. If you have audience, you can meet the scholarly this to get all Mao ballot effect. So the calculator is something which is in-between or crimson, red and order boil it. You can see it a slinky, that is for B which I am using u. So since this is a very abstract, offish buildings that we are doing in this class. You can also switch onto any other color that you like instead of this. So this is what I am going with, iron ions painting with my medium sized round brush. I am starting with the darker value added up. And after that, I just recommend brushing Porto Clinic little bit. And with my gouache brush, I start just blending this fellow with normal people with normal water. So you can see I have coordinates, darker color sheets are the job and below and just one blending it slightly with liquid water with my brush to get a nice gradient of dark good mouth. She'd do like the mouse sheet for the body of the fish. So you can see I'm putting the plane Waldo with my white brush and then just slightly spreading and blending the colors to get a beautiful gradient will be repeating this seem blending technique for the deal abortion as well as the fins of this fish. So just keep observing me get fully how I am blending it and do it along with me accordingly. You can also add more of the malware. Look at the DHAP to get a little more darker shade to it. So you can just go on adding, I'm lending as and when required according to what type of blending you are achieving. So let's go on and keep on doing this for the body. As the last offense. Don't forget to observe carefully before you start doing it. So you can pause the video in-between and keep on looking at my painting, as well as keep on adding your colors. Hi. This year only. So now we'll start painting the background force for that. I am giving a nice thin layer of water wash Dann die, a background bullshit. Make sure that your audio color of the fish has completely dried off before you do this. You can also do the background part, extremely forced before bending your fish. So right now I am going in the background, so I'm giving a nice thin layer of water washed my entire background trade to avoid the edges of the fish lake. Just finished the word though, wash nicely the edge line of the fish IN do this when your fiscal layer has completely dried. Otherwise you're meaning to the background and we don't want that. So where did the body and for the rest of the board, we'll just give a nice thin layer of water wash. And after that for the background is where we're going to use the same color that we used for the fish. So the C Magdala we are going to be using for the background white. We'll be adding a lot of water to this fellow this time because we don't want the color to be too big, main dirty. We want to just give a light shade of a background with this fish to just highlight the official bit more. But we won't do keep the fish as the main focus of the building. And that's why we are not doing a very vibrant background, but we just are going to add a little of our color to the background. So after giving a nice water wash the entire background, start taking your fellow and make sure your letters were Betty are not very big mentored and just start dropping your calculate this in a very abstract manner. Wanted the background, you can see the pigmentation of the scholar is very, very late Soviet avoiding the body of the fish. We are not going coloring over the body, but we are just dropping nice lake pigment of the below and giving a nice abstract background to this feeding. So you can see I'm just going with very random strokes and just blending the fellow as we move outwards. So just one, blending your colors in the similar manner for your entire background. Please don't. Use of big data can add a lot of water to your fellow before you do this. Then we'll also use some splattering on our background. So I'm just taking the same color in my brush and when my background is still wet, that time only I'm just splattering some of the dots from a branch of the same color. And you can see they have started blooming one nicely. So that's the effect I want good. And my upper background has already dried up the water wash which we are given. So I just again use my model to give what the wash and graduated. And then I'm using the same technique with the same color to get though background for the upper byte as well. And I will again use a fuels black daughters once you are done with their fullest followers. To get a nice abstract effect. I loved the blooms which we get in the background for the look. Any point if you feel that the color has gone too dark, but if we don't do what they do, you can just stop your day, should be able to take off the excess color. So it will help you get a control of your background as well. And now let's start splattering. Also a new splatter since I have already colored the fish. If SMS drops gets electrode on the fish just quickly take your should be put and dab it off so that it doesn't stain your fish. Egregious come off very quickly when you do it very quickly. So do this fast. After that, we'll start painting the body of the fish, the lower body. So for that I am again giving a nice thin layer of water wash to the entire officious your body. And we'll be using a very light gray colored afford giving her binge. Do this lower body portion. So for that, just add a lot of order. Do your black fellow who get the or if you get actually have a great color again at a lot of water, do that before you be intubated. You can see how laid off or Greek alone I am using. And I am deliberately using a wet on wet wash so that I get even or don't later of this, I have just applied it so that I get done. Nice hint of green. I don't want to give a very big Mender color, otherwise it will meet God and diving and look very dull. And also we are supposed to like the lines do this for the modal later on. So right now what we want as a very, very late here. So you can see now my bottom portion by Lord has completely dried up. My entire painting has completely right up. And after that, I start adding a little d dealt with a gray color. So again, you can use a direct relation for this audience. You can add a lot of water to your black to get their degree shared. And with that, I'll start making little lines. I am using my 0 number brush for this. And then start adding nine scope lines with spaces in between. Don't get the exact lines that the word demo of the fish's body. So we'll completely add these lines. You can see the out of a late dish brief ILO. See you can either add a lot of water to your black to get this fellow or as if you have a directory file or you can use that. And we will be drawing all the lines in the main scope format. So use your brush slowly and get nice thin lines. Okay, so now we are done with the lines as well. So now I just want some prominent spiders in the background. So I'll just again though, Mao shared, which is the popular shade which I use for the fish and drop a few more slack doors. Now when the background has dried up completely, you can see the earlier blooms have more than beautifully abstract in the background and soft. But now the spec was at a meeting since they are gone dry. I am getting my sports and I loved the effect. So we'll just tap off the excess water from the fish forced, we believe before it dries up. After that, we'll start detailing out the fish with a black color. So with the Black Belt moist than the eye. And I just start meeting the borders with the fish. So this carefully observe how I am making the border lines and the thickness of those lines which I am getting and keep on doing accordingly along with me. For the border lines, make sure that everything has again dried up completely. And then you can start doing this. So you, if you are not reading for a long time to dry it up, then you can just use a dryer to dry quickly. Also, since we are not using a lot of augmented Gallo Audre Lorde off heavy washes for the spinning. The drawing portion will not be the lord of aim. So don't worry. And I am just using my black below with my 0 number on brush. And I'm starting to border the fish. So just observe the thickness of the lines that I am using to do this. When I am using wait in lines that I'm using a little thicker lines and does do it accordingly along with me. Also, if you're not very confident about making the lines with the brush and black color window and what do you can also give you a fish as it is without bothering it with black. I'm just doing it to get an abstract effect and also do IDO on to the depth of the beam thing because it will immediately highlight the building a bit more. And since it is abstract, we can definitely when border it will make it look more abstract, unique and beautiful. Let's continue adding the borders. I hope you enjoyed doing it. See you again in the next lesson. 5. Day 03 - Seahorse: So we start sketching the basic of seahorse sketch forced for that. Then starting with the head portion, going with the goal. And just making a nice S-shaped curve here. And we'll again just go with the second layer of the same goal, which is the width of the goal. So we'll add on the body of this seahorse with that second layer. We'll make some points at the head portion and then use continuum Dakota downwards. So we are also going to have some spikes at the front of the body. Much right now. I'm not making them. I asked them on lead to what your gallery maybe. So if you can draw this very well, then also, I'll be uploading on the pencil sketch for this particular theme on to their source section. So if you don't want to draw or if you are born to draw it, you can anytime just refer to the pencil sketch rendering from there. You can just bring it out and trace it out on your whatever people. And then enjoy being lingered so that you won't have to go through drawing the entire sketch if you don't feel like doing it, the resources eligibility you for downloading. You can take it from the project resources section and you can enjoy the Internet. So we are done with expensive scattered most. So after that, you will just I'll just ease of the pencil marks which are there because I don't want them visible. Benchmarks like the dopants monks to be visible after we are done with the bending. So we'll just meet them later. And now we can start with the ten sources. This is a very abstract at drawing. Again, I'll start with my chrome yellow color for the head part and the remaining high art, I just go with my orange color and I try to blend the yellow and orange both nicely with each other to create a nice smooth blend. So you can use this small brush. I made sure to get nice buffet edges for this particular trying. I'm getting this orange color for the spikes of the highlight. Julian. Once you're done with that, it is start marking the front body of the unicorn with the acromial locally. Make sure to give perfect shape. And going to the meeting. And we complete one full circle with the end law. Display the yellow color, and also try to leave some white spaces in between YOU to just observe carefully until accordingly, along with me. The last year. But he was a smaller brush to get the perfect shapes and also make sure to leave spaces in between because it will add onto the POD for the entire central portion. Mm-hm. Right. Just pieces in which I am giving the vantage. Do it accordingly, will again repeat does seem that those spikes with an ACE score. So we doing back in a similar way. Hi, please. Welcome back. This applies. So now like we are done by coloring the entire unicorn. Let's start with the background coloring. So for that, foster, I'll be giving my nice thin lead off and wash the band bio background. And after that I start adding dark room, yellow, orange, and red random strokes onto the background that like the wash to get a nice effect on bike wash for the entire background. I'm dropping the yellow along with me. Hi. Now once you are done linking the basic background wash, just take your issue people and whether they should be purchased above. So denticola from the people and it is still a look at the spec should do your background. So this is a different effect that we are trying out early for the background. And I loved the results like that gives, it's very easy to do is realize it looks beautiful. So just take your distributed but on top of so didn't gallo of Trumbull, people make sure don't above all the colors mean you wonder, can certainly also just step off only certain areas if you wish to add, Okay, Hello, inserted places like if you feel that you have just dropped off excess color by mistake, then you can do this. You can just add the fellow again, and then you can tap it off again to get a slightly darker color wherever you want. So you can just repeat this process until you are satisfied with the background wash suggests do that, Don't overdo. It will not look good. It will also ruin your people. And they'll backgrounds preserving wash might also don't out dark girl, we don't want that. We want the horse to be a main focus and we want that to be darkest. I know the background. So the background is just take a supporting element students. So just keep it light, dark in color. And once you're done tapping off the color to this week when you're in diabetic group, try and maybe hiding the details, the black later on. So I think this looks nice now. So now we just start with this black during, which is my favorite part for this beautiful abstract backgrounds. So I just had a few factors of the yellow, orange and create exogenous places. Now, the horse with the black color, you'll start in Ezra stacking have ion using that ratio. And the black color stack. Getting it out of that tonight. Just to observe the places where Article 1, I'm doing accordingly along with me. Hi. This week we are done with this beautiful painting. I hope you enjoyed doing this. See you again in the next lesson. 6. Day 04 - Stingray: So again, I have started sketching though stingray fish with my pencil. So make sure that you draw it very lightly because we don't want the pencil marks to be visible once we are done with the painting. Also, if you find it difficult to sketch the basic sketch, then you can always refer to the resources section. I'll be uploading all the sketches one-by-one in the resources section. So you can just go there and observe it carefully and droid along with me or else you can do stop bringing it out and then trace it on your BIBO and then start building if you don't want to sketch it. So this is the basic stingray which we have completed drying and now we'll just ease off the excess dark lines when using my kneaded eraser duties of suspense in lanes. If you have drawn it already laid than you'll need to do this. So now it's quite late. So we can start with the painting. First of all, I'm starting with the bullshit blue-collar. And here I'm starting with the boredom portion of the fins with my bullshit blue color. I first use the darkest blue at the age, soldiers make sure to go very slowly and get the HBO physically shop. So I'll be going with my portion, blue, yellow, which is the darkest blue color that I have. And I do the age of nine school. And after that just added a little bit inside in the interior. But and once you are done with that, just keep it as it is clean your brush and you can just spread it slightly a bit more inside. So we are doing this with the Washington blue. Only. After that. I am just adding a darker pigment vertical loads. So for that, I have added a link to the amount of black with my portion bugler to get a docker ps here. And the nighttime just going on on the edge of the fish so that they get a nice dark yellow. So I've just started a very little amount of black, ocean blue to get this scholar. Okay, so now that we have ordinates Docker and below, then we'll start with data labeling below in the central portion. So just stick your late Bu Gallo or any similar color that you have for this. I'm start from this central half of the fish and then just go on spreading it in the remaining portion forced. And after that slowly go on blending it with abortion blue to get a nice even blamed throughout. So make sure that the edges are amazing, perfect k1 and the same don't just go with small round strokes to just blend mode the blues together nicely and smoothly. We'd have to repeat the same process for the lower half portion of the stingrays. Well, so just follow the same procedure which we followed for this portion. And you will be able to get the volume portion will fully as well. So just keep observing me and just keep doing and being done along with me as I go on adding the scholars IBI adding the same portion, you are low then the darker version, Blue Shield and a blue shade. And then I'd be blending all look alerts. So just carefully observe and do it accordingly. Yeah. And how In the back. See. Hi. So now we're done with the main body of the fish when you start doing that. So for Diageo can just start with the amount of light. And color does seem that have meaning. But the same portion, a lot of water to just give up Lee and labeling a wash to this insight right here. And then we'll start with the background. So for the background, for us to foil, start with a nice thin layer of water wash over the entire background. Also remember to make sure that you're in dire fish has completely dried it up before you start with a background wash. Otherwise your balance will go on and leading to the background iron, it will create a Mensa. Don't do that. Just wait for your entire fish to dry it off completely. And after the entire fishes galleries trade up completely, then just go with a nice thin layer of water wash for the background. And then just start some dropping some light-blue color like this randomly in the background. And we then go on the dark tissue paper technique and we'll just lift up some of the colors of the people to make it lay down of United States. Sure. So for us to foil, just go with a nice thin layer of water wash. And on the Waldorf School ones threading new layer blue randomly with some abstract strokes don't really do much. Really be just picking up the excess colored bars and giving it a nice texture with our distributable. So just Timely, bourdon, the water lead. Make sure that you don't go inside the fish edges. And after that, start putting in your light blue color like this and very random strokes. You can see that there is not very big main grid. I'm using a light dose shade of blue, that is by adding a little amount of water gouache. So that's why it's not very big lingered. And if you feel like it's more than you're going to remove water, do it to make it late though. I'm like this. I'll just tap my distributed on solid media has only to pick up. So didn't Gallo in some areas, we'll do the places for the remaining background as well. And after that, I'll just take some ultramarine blue. I'm just drop a few splatters. I wonder like background or create a nice abstract effect. So the entropy that's trusses for the entire painting background part. Now that we're done with the background, I start with my black lining for the fish to get a nice extra effect onto the fish. So I am going with my black color. I'm very 1000 numbers around crash. I start making the borders nicely for my fish. Just observe carefully how I'm doing it. I'm go along with me, ready slowly. I'm start bordering your fish. We are done. But this beautiful painting, I hope you enjoyed doing it. See you again in the next lesson. 7. Day 05 - Puffer Fish: So we'll start drawing our fish forced. I am just drawing a very basic single lionfish to start with, just to get a nice idea of how we are supposed to worry about coloring it. So this is a very simple drawing. Again, we are just starting with us late or will shape, and then we are building it out. Dominique, beautiful Baylor offered, will add a fin, your sphere where the sites. And after that we'll make the ion the amount. So the slate go spikes of this fish. We are directly window meet with the color later on. So right now I'm just drawing the fish, the basic fish out plane. And I have drawn it dark so that it's visible for you all. That's why i energy state may result. I'm meager delayed now. So you can use any design, any pencil, whichever you have for trying this. Also, if you don't wish to draw this or something you can do Store, download the image which is there in the resource section, increase it. So we'll be using the colors blend think for this fish. So let's start with the background for us this time. So I am giving a nice thin layer of water washed. They're in dire background first before we start with a big thing because we'd be doing the background forced for this fish. And then we'll start coloring the interior parts. So that's 54 is to foil, give a nice thin layer of water wash to your entire background. And once you are done with bandages, stake your pink color, and start dropping it on the entire background. And reviewers random strokes and very abstract mono. You can see I am using a ready, What did he think your anger does not very big vendetta against light since we are doing a wet on wet technique and also have a lot of water to my paint. Layer is well before I start painting with it. So I'm just covering the entire background portion. A bite from the Fish says Molly, the pink color. And afterwards we just use our paper texture technique and pick up the extra beat of the people. So don't worry right now, just have some fun with the alkalosis tropic anyhow and love people. And after that, I just take my tissue paper and Baptists on the beeper to take off scholar from certain areas. So that leaves a nice picture on it and you can see the beautiful abstract effect that we are getting for the background. So it's a very simple technique. Do we have that nice unique abstract effect for your backgrounds? And you can use this for any other kind of being done as well. So it's a very fine I'm easy effect which you can do. So once you are done with this, just take a little pigment on your brush and just drop some sports like this on the people and the background is still wet. So you will get nice blooms after that wheat for your people or to dry up completely. And once the entire beam has dried up, then only start with the fish coloring. So protocol letting the fish for SLI I'm going in with my border Paul Gallo. You can use any other sheets that you want if you want to use any other because these are completely abstract fishes that we are making. So you can go on with any other color combinations that you want. But for this particular fish, I'll be using my Bhopal and think so and I am starting with the Bhopal Gallo. This is directed away. Don't try so I am directly going with my Bhopal Gallo. I've just started a little amount of water to my board blend. I'm just being fingered directly with my bot bungalow. Starting from the top of the fish. After that, from the bottom portion of the fish, I'll start being done with my measuring, dumping Gallo I'm good that I am did a key again wing with the wet on dry technique and just start marking the edges specifically because B19 clear sharp edges. I'm rest of the gallery. You can this be injected inside and the bink. And after that, just blend the Bingen the Bhopal with one another to make it look like one smooth gradient. So just make sure that your edges are nice and clean, forced. And then go on ahead and blamed the bank and the boat with one another, giving a nice smooth blend. Hi. Please repeat the same product at the top and the bottom, and we'll paint those cut-off that Carlos nicely. But the fence right now I'll just give a nice thin lead off. Think Washoe knee. So just take something color in your brush. I'm just being the fence, but that I am adding a lot of water to my paint before I start giving this wash, I feel that my color is quite late, so I will just give it a slightly darker shade at the edge effect with my purple color. So I'm just adding a little more amount of Copan at the edge of the fish to just increase the color pigmentation. That's it. I'm using the same. I love it. Just a little more pigment and drag now, if your color is already pigment video don't need to do this step again, I'm just hiding it because my populous looking weight late after it's dried up. Now I'm just simply adding a little more of the pigment or color at the top to get a slightly darker shade. After that, like your entire painting dry up completely. And once that is done, we'll start adding this bikes to this fish. So for that, for the upper portion, I'll be using the bot piccolo, which we used for the beam. But this time I have, I did a very little amount of water to my color and a lot of color pigment. So you can see that the color is quite dark competitively. So I'll be using or Dakpo bungalow to make the tons at the upper part. As I'll be using my dark green dabbing color for the bottom portion. Go make some tones. Make sure that the officials completely right up before you do this or the way is your fellows will bleed into each other and you will not get those Bohr effect sharp shapes. So just use the tennis players that you have for this. I'm using my 0 number on brush for this. I'm just go on adding the tons, leave some spaces in between and meet the tons. Nice and pointy. Use the Bhopal for the dark portion and the beam for the bottom portion. So just carefully keep observing me, I'm doing along with me. I'll also add a few strokes for the fins here to make it look more beautiful. We'll continue with the tons at the bottom portion with the pink. Hi. So we are then with the basically the link now I just add a few slack doors with my board blue-collar in the background. Earlier we had used up, I think for all the background effect. So now I just double-click alone, which I used for the fish. I like to just write a few regards ofs black node and the background with my purple color to give it abstract effect. And once that is done, then we'll start the dealing outdoor fish completely with the black color as we did for the earlier efficiencies. Well, so start bordering your entire painting with black. Just observe the places in which I am doing this border. I'm doing accordingly along with me. I am using the 0 number round brush again for this. So make sure to get nice thin borderlines. If you don't wish to do the border and completely skip this step, then you can do that as well. If you want to do the border with any black micron pen or any other ten fine liner. You can go ahead and do it the diet as well. But I prefer doing the diode being banged with the same medium. So that's why I am just going ahead with my watercolor black Loonie. I'm I'm going to start bordering it. Also. We are not going to board that the tons we are labeling the tons be as they are. So apart from that, we'll border the border area of the fish and the fins and the deal. So that said we'll do that. And then the fish will look more complete and more beautiful. So since this is a very abstract painting, you don't need to worry much. Even if you've taken teenager factor going places, it is willing to look beautiful. So I am deliberately when Dominique, the strokes thick axon barks and thinner egg some parts because that's how I like it. So you can, again just change those slayed amount of leaders according to your village as well. So feel free to add your own creativity and enjoy being done. So let's keep on just completing the Bordeaux. Don't forget to observe me carefully. I'm then do it accordingly along with me. With this, we are done with this vicious. Well, I'm don't forget to upload your paintings on this routine project section. See you again in the next lesson. 8. Day 06 - Sea Turtle: So here we will start being taking today's CDO. Do you can see these are the earlier drinks which will be entered. And now let's start sketching out to these drawing. So for this either I start by drawing again as we do for all the other drawings. So I'm starting with the head of the Darden. And then behind it will be the shell. Just going with the goal at the start, the scope. And right now I'm not going to detail it out though much. I'll just draw the basic reference lines. So these are the small legs, the arms. And just eat the lines flowy and go VIF, if you cannot draw it at Lake me right now, you can also refer to the drawing which is dead and though the resources section or in the project section of the resources. And you can just scattered by looking there. Otherwise, you can also print it out and grease it on your sketchbook and afterwards start painting along with me. So we are done with the basic drawing now we'll just do it either it off a little bit and make it lighter because we don't want the pencil marks to be seen. 17 painting is done. That's why I'm just erasing it slightly and making a glyco. So after that's done, we'll start being done one-by-one. For this, we'll be using tubes of light green and blue. So I'm starting with abortion blue-collar for the head byte. In the dark, I am giving the bush and blue, yellow. And then I'll take my light green color and start from the bottom portion. And in the central part, I adjust slightly blend my blue with the green. To create a smoother blend. You can keep on adding more colors if you want, but keep these colors a little later. Not too big binder because we are going to either lecture on do it later on. So right now, you can see I am not going on item a lot of pigment. I'm just keeping your medium big main grid right now. So I'll just start a little darker shade at the dock and I'll blame them down. If it the green. In the similar way we will be doing the arms and legs as well. So for that, again, we'll start with the Bush in blue below. For the hi, I'm Bart, and we'll go with the light green in that area below. And then we'll start blending mode. For both the arms. Once the arms are done for the shell ADR, what we'll do is we'll just try to make a little integrate design on it so as to mark the nice backbone. So just observe carefully how I am being degraded. I'm just going with eye blinks, light green color with my lived in Gullah, I am making some shapes in the area which I had marked Oh, Leo. And I'm leaving some white spaces in between off all the four SHE lake the square shapes that I'm making, I'm just leaving some white spaces in between to create a nice effect. So we will be doing this and that's a Malawi far with the light green at the top. I'm for the bottom portion. So meanwhile, when my livelihood and still wet, I will just follow my leg portion. So for that I am against typing with the blue color at the top. And then I'll just add a little light green color at the bottom part and blend mode the colors nicely. Then for the shadow, we'll be continuing the bottom most portion, but the Persian blue in the similar way which we date about that because by leaving white spaces in between. So just observe carefully and do along with you. Yeah. In you. Ciao. I'm now once you are done with abortion blue layer, we'll do the same thing for the central portion, but this time we are going to blend it into two parts. So I'm starting with the light green part at the top, again, leaving the white spaces in between. And at the bottom, I'll go with my cobalt blue. And I slightly blended nicely with the light green in that similar sheep. So you can see I am leaving whitespaces, donning it round at the bottom portion. And I am just going one. So in this ulama now we'll just go on continue. Hello. Now for the remaining portions, I will start with a light green layer for the bottom, just below the ocean blue layer. And after that or not, That's drip off portion for the bottom-most layer off the shell. And then we'll be done with the basic building. So now that we're done with the basic structure of the turtle, we'll start adding a little pattern onto the body of the total. So I am just going with my boss and I'm adding small, small spots on the head and leg off the total mark, a nice texture of the skin. So let's do that. Do this when you earlier colloids have nicely dried up completely because we don't want the colors to bleed into each other. So in this way, we'll start creating a nice BY don't own the entire body. So you can see I'm not discovering the entire thing. I'm leaving certain species as well. So just leave certain areas and do the lecture only up to a limited by Blake I am doing. And we'll repeat the same lecture one though, Haidt lakes as well as the arms. So just see, I am just making small darts and that certain Dido. So I'm making only for a limited area and not just covering the entire phase or the entire arm with only a certain part of it. So remember to do it only for a limited ADR. So it will look more natural and beautiful in that way. So I am doing this with abortion low below you can also dilute your ocean blue in Waldo do distributes the vibrancy of lithium and then you can start being done with it. We are done with this as well. So now we'll start with the background. For the background forced week for your entire painting to dry up. And after it's dried, then only started giving though, then later for the watch for your background bullshit. So await going inside the door, dealt with your wet brush, just give the wash to the entire background version. And once the Washington, just take some lemon yellow color on your brush and start dropping it in certain parts just radioactively because we want abstract background. And as you all know, we are not going to give the background where you, I blend colors, so just UBO colors with water so that they are not the wiring when you give them for the background color. And now after the yellow wash, I will just start dropping my little amount of cobalt blue on this wash. So it's naturally mixing with the yellow and donning and doers see greenish color. So that's okay. After that, I just start date my light green color as well. And the delayed gleam gallery, I'll start adding some blooms. So let me just back off some x's collect from the edges with Mike, they should be both false before I do that. Okay. And now under awake alert itself, I am just putting my brush to drop some late glean relevant. The background is still wait, and it is creating some beautiful blooms. So when it graze up a dividend, feed nicely. And it will look like this to give abstract background. And once your entire painting has dried up, then we'll start inking this with the black below. So just carefully observe how I am using the thickness of the lines and where I am endangered with the black and do it accordingly along with me. You can use the smallest size brush that you have for this directional lines. And IB, just detailing it out with black. And I'll just add some lines with the tip thickness compared to the others. So we are done with the black pipe as well. So I just drop a little amount of motion blue dots here and there. For the background. We are done with this painting. See you. 9. Day 07 - Dolphin: Okay, So here we start another building from this beautiful equity CDs. So for that, let's just start with the basics get. So I have already drawn this sketch lightly, so I just redo it and make it darker for you to understand it though. So you just have to make a nice goal for the dorsal fin and tried to give them beautiful soft goals because it will look beautiful then without sharp edges. So just make sure to give my skull shapes the entire dolphin. And you can find this picture in the resource section of the project section. So you can just download it from there. And Cressida, if you don't want to draw it, that your hand straight now. Okay, so I have drawn the basic sketch and ages still is off the darker pencil marks now so that they are not visible ones the painting is done. So I am just using my notability is there to just take off their dark pencil marks from this. You can use an eraser and pencil for this. After that, we'll start with a background wash for this one forest. And for this painting I'm going to go with a complete find relaxing background wash. So let's just quickly give a nice thin layer of water wash today in bio background abide from the dolphin EDR. Rest of the background we are giving an Einstein later for the wash, As you can see you. And we are just going to go full free with the background for this particular painting. So just stick a little amount of light blue color in my brush once this wash is done. And we just start having some fun with that by Louis for the background. So let's just start dropping it in various random shapes. Anyhow, however you want to just have some fun. Let the color nicely bleeding. Turbo late though, by low flow with the water background which we have given. And you can also pay your sketchbook do allow the movement and the flow of the color in the water wash. So this Dodge, I do have some fun with the background because this is a VET, abstract background that we are creating. And after that dialogue. So either little amount of think through this to add on and do some fun galleries and does. So. The yellow is nicely blend into each other. And as you all know, we are supposed to keep the background later because we want that mean subject to be the focus of the trial. So I just take some water in my brush and tap it on this before like this to create some nice spec sheet onto the beak. And also this will help me to get my beans a little less wide, bring you to the eyelid water in it. So right now I'm just taking my disobey put lambdas, popping it off the excess water off from the sides to give them some nice abstract edges. Do this background and you can see the bi-layer which we have given is already nice and late because of the water and the water spring after the gallery was dropped. So that's why we have this like a light wash after that, allow it to dry up completely. And after it's completely dried up, we start building our dolphin. For the Dolphin, I'm Forrest going with the abortion bugle at the top. And then I will just go and add a little amount of light blue at the Central Park and the water most part, I'll be painting it with my image and dabbing color. Also make sure to blend in all the three colors nicely with each other once you start being denatured. So just observe we carefully now and do it accordingly along with me. First with abortion bugler than we do the light blue. And then at the bottom part we just do a little of Magellan gapping. Yeah. Hi. So again, he was, the question says, Well, and after that you can also add a little more amount of caution at the top. So I'm deciding slightly darker pigment and highlight certain parts that I feel like the pigmentosum by gender. So I'm just adding a little pink here at the bottom. And I'll also my darker color at the top. We'll just give it a nice sharp edge and also drag a little more color to it. So we are done with the painting and let it dry completely after that, just sprinkle a few sports off blue-collar as well as a little amount of measuring cup in color on the background will give some nice effect to the background. And one stack is done, then you can do style, take a little amount of black color in the smallest brush that you have. So I'm using my 0 number round brush for this and we'll start detailing out the border of this fish. So just remember too, just to observe carefully the thickness of the strokes that I'm using. So I'll be using in our stroke facts are correct. Yes. So just observe them carefully. I will one doing the detailing along with me with the black watercolor. So now that we're done with the detailing of the black, I'll just start a little white highlight certain parts. I'm doing this with my wash weight color. You can use any opaque white that you have. You can also use your white highlight up and for this or NC, you can also simply go with the white watercolor if you don't have anything else or else you can also totally skip this part if you don't want to add the white highlights, I'm just adding a little isolated doing Vegemite trying. So just make sure that these lines are very, very, very 10 lake O'Hare. We don't want this white lengths to be very thick, so make sure that they can use the smallest press that you have and use the Kinect strokes for this. And just idling for you to include your fish. By adding these small little can lend only exogenous part. So just mark the parts that I'm making a time, only limit them to lose parts. And I allow how lively this looks immediately when we add the weight names. So, yeah, we are almost done with this painting and I hope you enjoyed doing this. See you again in the next lesson. 10. Day 08 - Jelly Fish: So let's start drawing our basic drawing forest. So we are going to draw a very nice little easy is jellyfish today, it's a very easy drawing. Just draw a semicircle. Add these little curves here at the BSW. And we will be drawing the bottom lines freehand. So I'm just leaving your tray now as it is. Just for your reference. I just erased the pencil lines a little bit to make them later because I don't want the pencil marks to be seen once we start bending. And now NFO start with their water wash for the background. So I am just directly using my light blue below with lots of water. I didn't do it for my background wash. Make sure to add a lot of water to wait before you start giving the worst, because we want the background wash to be really light and not very vibrant Arabic mangers. So that's why we are just going to add a lot of which do it and keep it as abstract as we began. This one spreading it. And different manner and just one. I think I love wherever you feel the need to start, a little amount of light blue and this one spreading it more. So you can see I am just going with very random strokes. And that's how we'll be doing the background. I'll also add a few drops off measuring duping Galileo. So you can see I just took a little amount of pink with, I did with water in my brush and I just kept my brush on my paper. Don't make stuff bank with the blue. So you can just go with this technique or you can just put it on with the brush and just go with random spiders lake this to display of blue and pink. And after that style, make sure to just stop off the excess color from the edges to give it a nice abstract edge. So I'm just tapping off some color from the edges. After that though, if you want, you can just adding a little more pigment available you feel. So make sure to keep it watery. And after that, just take a wet brush and I am using only clean water, do this and I'm splattering little drops of water. Don't want my building. And you can see the beautiful crystals which are formed. So these are blooms which we are going do yet to create some abstract by telling the background. So you can also see that the edges, again with our distributor where you find the need to. And we can also add a limited amount of being color using this seems laddering technique just to ionize scholar to this background. And that's it. We'll just wait for it to dry up completely. And once this beautiful lady background has dried up, we'll start building our jellyfish. So for that force to fall, I'm starting with my pink color. And you can see I am going with a very watery pink here again, because this is just for sled and we're going to add a lot of Mugler do Wheatley to run. So I am just going with the pink and I am slightly spreading it below with strokes only with my wet brush. And I'm also keeping some weights, strings in between as you can see you. After that, I'll just take some electrical aid, my brush, and I drop a little amount of electrical at the BSW lake this so in case if you are colored is due weight than if you're boiling, it goes and spreads to the dog sled than just whether they should be put and wait for it to dry up a little bit. And only then ideal Willard. So let's just make the edges cleared now. So we are doing this when the background has completely dried up again. So that's why these scholars and our, I'm going, I'm bleeding into each other by gamma rays and affecting the perfect shape. So now we'll move on just adding a little more way like at the B0, C0. And after that, we just split latest trends of this pink below. So I am starting with the pink from the bass part, and I'm going with very random curves, shapes to make a few brings strengths coming out from the jellyfish. So you can just observe how I am not, I am mixing a lot of David might think pigment to create a nice effect and blue. Nor do you know these strokes on over poverty rate now, because I have added a lot of afford to do it. So they are really late, comparatively late now, since we are going to be adding more layers or fellow towards right now I am keeping the edges les dot only. So this goal with these small strokes like this. And I'll also add a few strokes, just random strokes. I'm using my 0 number brush for this. So you can use that the next brush that you have and just go with random strokes like this. We'll also read the book strokes bit about on the upper part to give it the man inspects, sure. Do the entire fish. So just go with small goal of the vertical strokes. And we'll also add color to the edge. Meet the edge, nice and fine. And once that is done week for it to completely dry up. And once it's completely dry up, then start adding more legal zone. Do it. So I'm starting with my dark way late Gallo. And I am just adding a liquidity gel here at the bottom part. So you just go with small alcoves to make the age of the jellyfish as 4D. And then I continue these molecules civic little gov lines about. You can also add a few pink lines at certain parts. So I am just going on dealing with the violet color. And I'll also be developed certain things with the pink column. So just observe carefully and do accordingly along with me. Make sure to do this when you're painting has dried up. So I start adding a few lines for their top portion. And after that, I have deadlines for the bottom portion of the jellyfish. Now I repeat adding a few same data's bike but the pink color. So I'm just giving a nice shade of pink lines, your ADA, about portion of the fish. I might also add a few strokes at the bottom portion with my magenta pink. Have I did the curves and allows us blacker of your pink dots here and there in the background of the jellyfish, as well as a few blue dots, the light blue dots and the background. Now we are done with the painting and I'll just read for it the entire binding to dry up. And after it's straight up, I start adding detail with my black color. And I just start to put our claim border to the jellyfish. So you can see I am using a very thin outline, do mock my black outlines for this jellyfish. And the exit only for this part. And the bottom part, I just started to three Stein's with my black, yellow or too much. Just three for maximum. And it's done. So we'll also add a little white highlight to the fish. So for that I'm using my white wash color. You can use any other way to color that you have. If you don't have a wash of yellow and orange, you can just use the audio rate highlights between me and just totally skip this part. So I'm just adding a little off by it highlights with my way towards color, again using the thinnest brush. And I'm doing this on the topmost body, as well as I'll add a few strings with my white in the water portion and little highlight there. Do. Yeah, um, but this we are done with this painting. Hope you enjoyed doing it. See you again in the next lesson. 11. Day 09 - Hammerhead Shark: So we'll again start with the basic pencil drawing of the fish. So for that, I am trying this hammer head sharks Heydrich now. So it's like a sheep of the hammer that's very soon as hematite shock. So let's rather hey, then we move on to the body. For the body again, we'll try do fins on either sides and then we'll just go for it, round the back and then attach the deal. Do it. You can just draw this lately along with nice, easier for you being doing. Also, if you find it difficult to draw the wound, why do you can just go into the certain precious resource section? And there I have already uploaded all the pencil sketches as and when they are blue, the lesson I do try to upload all the pencil sketches of the fishes. So from there you can just trace it down, bring it down on your watercolor paper, and then start being done along and enjoy the brain differences if you don't like the drawing. So I have drawn this now and I just released the pencil lines like Dilbert domains them later. So I am just laying there with my kneaded eraser. You can use any reason pencil for this purpose. After that, we'll start painting now. So forbidding I'm forced going with my background wash. So for the background wash, I'm using a very big brush to give a nice thin layer of water wash forced before I start being done because I want my background color to be very flowy abstract and very late in pigmentation. That's why it's good to use the wet-on-wet technique for this. So I am going to DNAs wake, wash, and I'm avoiding the fishing area. And apart from that for the entire byte, I'm just giving a nice thin lead or for the wash and on the water wash. We'll start giving up being one by one. So for this painting, I'll be going with my imagine dumping color. So again, makes a little amount of water though with your gallery as well because we don't want the colors to be very big. Main video. And this time for the background wash, you can see I'm going with Lady Dynamite stroke. So that's what we are going to do for the entire background wash religious school with random strokes. With this mentioning dumping color, I make sure to use pigment and for that just make sure to mix regional amount of water to your fellow before you start applying it. Wonder we don't wake wash. After adding the pink color wheel also splendor a few drops of global. She'd won the bank to get an a shade and the word. So you can just take your later but Bulgaria, a few drops of that on this beam. You can go on increasing the recommendation wherever you find it necessary. If it's laden certain areas always just deeper Dicer this. So I am just adding a little bit more, bring that certain areas. But again, it's an add-on technique I abstract technique. So after drying up WEBrick, don't even more later. Now I'm done with the bank. I'll start with the purpose bladder. So only a few spike those again, I have mixed a lot of water to this color, so you can see that it's not very dark recommended. I am disliked ring a few drops of the poeple here and then just to either see the word. And after that does take your distributor and tap off the globe, which is therefore lid on those centers shock, as well as just tap off the excess water from the corners to give it a nice abstract edges will. So gave the alert in the central part doesn't come out nicely because we are going to be recoloring this particular being thin, dark for the shock. So after that feed for your entire background color to try out completely and one status straight up, then start with the balloting. So for the coloring for SLI, I'm using my dark way lid shield and just observe the location and return giving this drug will achieve. So I have added a little amount of water to my law. So that's nice and easy for me to blame being done blended and just use a small animal brush to get the ball flip sharp edges for this. And I am going with the dark violet color that I have. So right now, the areas I am being done with the deck way to follow. And after that we'll use another machine and labeled jugglers in nicely so forth. Let me just finish this. Yeah. And after that, now, I'll just take a little amount of books or measuring darker yellow in my brush so you can either date bulk bill or imaging dumping. So I'll be using a mixture of might outweigh lead, both Bill and measuring damping for the entire beam things right now I'm just taking a mixture of both language and dumping, and I am giving one it only remaining weight space. And you can see. I am giving you, I am also blending it with the darker shade to create a nice effect of dark and light shadows here. So just keep observing the colors that I am using. The bile it is right there and the darkest toilet is at the DHAP. After that comes the open sheet and often act as though mosaic damping or the rules pink shade which I have. So I'll be using the St. Louis and I just blending it in different parts of this fish to get the fringe sheets. So don't forget to carefully keep observing along with me. So don't fret, I believe back in the central part. Hi, I am now the new. In this module. Hi. Hi. So now we are done with the balloting select side, a few splatters with the vocal and the pink color in the background. So I'm excited amount of water to your fellow and then display it around in the background to get done, I subtract effect to the entire binding. And after that week for your entire background color, as well as the fresh color to dry up completely. And once it completely dry it up, then start detailing the fish with your black fellow with the smallest size brush. So I'm just going to bolded on certain areas with the black fellow using my smallest CDO number round brush spectrum. Now comes the last part after that evening, I just, I don't feel whitewash highlights to this. So I'm using my white wash or be quite shallow. But if you don't have a gloss medium, then you can use any medium that you have. You can use Bosch acrylic fabric if you can. If you don't have any of these, you can also use your water below eight or as if you have all right highlighter pen or something, you can definitely go for diet as well. So you can also do it the Liskov despite not a problem. So I'm just adding a few highlights with the weight yield or as you can just keep your original white people highlight which is there in the central part. You can just use those original highlights as well if you don't want to add extra weight on do it later on. So it's totally upon you just be creative and tried to adapt to different techniques, which few fields that are good for you. So I just add a very light highlights, so make sure that your strokes have very thin for this. If you are not confident enough with the brush strokes, you can just factor them on any other of people with any beam we do want so that you'll get the hang of being dentinal lens. Or else you can also switch on and do or using F8 highlighter pen for this focus and jelly bean or anything will do. So. I'm just adding a few while I didn't see or to just make it more beautiful. And for this, we are done with this painting. I really hope you enjoyed doing it. See you again in the next lesson. 12. Day 10 - Octopus: So now we'll start sketching our basic drawing force. So I'm destroying the octopus. So for that I'm starting with the head and then we'll start drawing the legs and radius directions. So you can just observe my sketch and just draw it according here along with me. Or else if you learn one new scattered and if you're lucky want to pin this, then you can just take it onto the project section and indirect. Under the resources, I have uploaded all the pencil sketches as I want uploading the glasses so you can just get this from their audience. You can also just bring it out and research on your watercolor. People angled at least start being done along with me. So we'll just finish this sketch quickly. And after that, we'll start being ticket. So after you have completed drawing this sketch, then just make sure I do make it light dough because we don't want the pencil marks to be seen. So that's why after your pencil sketch has been completed, just reuse the darker lines and make them slightly later so that it's easier for you to meet it clean once you have done with the being done. So Ages make the lines a little later by erasing of slightly. And now we are done with the sketching part. We'll start with the painting. So for this being done, I am starting with a background wash again forced and I'm just wetting my entire people rate now forest with my bigger sized round brush. And after that, I just take some yellow color and ages start dropping microbial local law in the between. So just slightly away the central optimist portion on from that. And this going on dropping my yellow caution like this. So I have also added a JIT amount of water to my yellow color. And you can see that it is a nice whitewashed the entire people, so the color is already very flowy. You can just lift bank David, your sketchbook blue head, a low flow in different directions and have some fun with the beautiful economic thing. So you can also tap off the excess color from certain buyer. So I'm just tapping off a little color from the octopus portion as well, isolated from the corners. And you're going to want spreading it however you want. You can also add more of your localized certain places. You can also add a little orange color in the central portion if you want. So just try on adding a little color. If you want. Whatever you feel like a big magnet is less ad if you feel like ridges do MyType certain places, then you stop your distributed on it and pick up the excess color pigments. I'm just dropping my deep yellow color in the central portion settled and bites. You can see I'm dropping again the earlier ballistic weight. And so it's nicely spreading with my entire Gallo. And I induced because of the excess water color from the edges with my district people. Just give it some nice abstract edges may lifting off. So Don Carlo, like this. And after that, we'll also splatter a little water on this to get a nice actual effect to this entire color, which we have done for the background. So I am just using my round brush and I have taken simply Blaine water in my brush. And I'm just like getting the water droplets on the background to create some beautiful bloom effect. And this beautiful dark sack created. Now I read the entire background color, dries up, and 1 third strain, we'll start building our occupants. So I am starting with my orange color and just look at the pencil marks and go on getting inside the occupants with the orange color and the acromial locally. So I'll be making a shade of orange and chrome yellow. So I'll start with the orange color at the edge. And after that, I live the gloomier local lines break the Gallo with the audience and blended nicely. And I will be doing the same thing for the dialogue versus body. So I will also add the orange for the Heinz are the legs of Dr. Bass. I started with the audience on one side in a nice curved motion like this. And after that, the remaining portion, I'll just go with my yellow color and they blended nicely with my audience as everyone being linked. So let's repeat this process for all the legs and everything of the octopus with the 100 inch edge forced. And then the yellow age. Though, Morgan, I'm nicely blend the colors into each other. Hi. In the last year. Now once that's done, I'll start adding my oranges. Basically when your audio colors are still wet so that that aid will not look. Your bot will get the blended nicely with the audience. And deciding a very little amount of 4 million rape daughters. So just remember to add a little amount and not too much, just to give it that they're darker effect. And we'll repeat this on all the areas that have unnecessary. So just to observe and paint along with me. Now comes my favorite little abstract part where I will display a little amount of yellow and orange throughout the painting. So let's just drop a few drops of orange and yellow in the background portion to add some beautiful specular and abstractness to the speeding. And this makes him a field. Sites of top but not so much on the skin. Now I'll just start bottling up. So just stop stuff gasoline and just do it along with me accordingly. Hi. Hi. Now we dislike Doolittle, I assume. And after that, I just start adding a little white highlight domain data. So I'm doing this with the gouache gouache colors. You can use any other opaque way that you have. And if you don't have any other big way, you can also use the highlighter way, then order January, Ben, or is this simply watercolor weight oil is you can also totally skip this step if you don't want to do it. But I'm just hiding. It. Didn't like his highlight do this in dialogue with my weight color. So let's just continue doing that. We are almost done with the highlighting this fact that twinkle in the eye and see you again in the next lesson. 13. Day 11 - Beta Fish: So let's start sketching our basic fish. So we are going to draw a bigger fish today. And for that, I am starting with the body part, which is like a normal fish, but this one has a very nice flowy feel as well as fins. So we'll be drawing large flows. Fence and deals for this fish. If you don't wish to draw this. I have already uploaded all the sketches for all the individual lessons to confine them the data sources industrial project section. So you can definitely star downloaded from there and you can print it out, trace it out on your watercolor paper, and then just complete this sketch. And after that, enjoy being with me. So we are done with the sketch. I just made the pencil marks later by it is in your lately with my eraser. And now the E6 sketches ready so we can start with the binding for being, being forced to foil. I'll be doing my background for this fun. So I am just giving a nice thin layer of water wash to my entire background. Leave the fish part. And apart from that, all the rest of the barges give it a nice thin layer of water wash with your bigger sized brush for this first time, giving a contrast by groundwork. So I'm starting with my light green color and you can see I'm just dropping in a little amount of light green color with my brush randomly on the people. And it's automatically going on blending with the CTO. And that's why it's creating beautiful sheets, abstract shapes with the water. So that's why I am doing this beautiful effect on mic technique for the background so that we get a nice abstract background. And also it does not really big mentored as you know, I am diluting Michaela with the worker and using a later she'd do just given ends abstract background. And just take a little amount of dark green color. And I just start dropping a little amount of dark green color on my light green color. I'm doing this madman earlier. Wash is still wet so you can see the dark green color is also going one spreading with the light green to be some blooms. So we wanted to achieve that effect. So that's why we need to do it a little quicker. So that reticulocyte there and they just go on blending into each other and create magic on their own. So while again drop a few light green drops here and there, wherever the pigment is less, you can just go on adding a little bit. And if you feel that the pigment is too much, then you can definitely pick up some excess pigment audience. You can also just drop in some water spiders on the background to make it illegal labor and create a beautiful texture on it. Now, let me just tap off the excess water which is streaming out from the edges so we don't want those messy edges. So I just feed off the bite of the border and then let the entire painting dry. Once the entire background is dry, you can start painting the fish. Though for the fish, I'm starting with my nice red color. And we will be using this nice primary data as well as we need some maroon red or a little crimson red. You can just mix a little amount Gulf bush and blue or black for your crimson red to get a maroon color if you don't have been directly and just use actual foster father, I am just using my normal red color and I'll go with a nice layer of washed my entire fish with my red color. But let's start with a darker pigment at the edge and you can just go on spreading it with added water as you move ahead. So I'm starting with a darker red here as you can see. And after that, I just stick a little warping my brush and spread outwards and strokes which are there in the edges. If you can see I am just leaving them withdraw because I want to get back sheep of the angle of the fin and their tail. So I am just keeping the edges nice and draw. So you can distinguish a little amount of red whenever you feel like the color pigment is less so. And after that, you can just do pick your wet brush and go on spreading it with water. In this way, compete the deal, and then we add on. So let's first do this. The focus is done with the first wash when the Colossus didn't wait, I am making my modal and start adding that darker EDS do this fish, but the maroon color. So just to observe the places in which I'm adding these darker shapes, I'm awake accordingly along with me. After that is done, again when the clauses Delaware, I'll start adding this Toklas. So this is a shear which is a mixture of both. I'm back I am adding to give an ice sheet and adding the color of the back-office. So you can see this is a Palo which is a mixture of ultramarine blue, purple. And observe the strokes that I am making. I am just again going with the flow lines and using them at the starting part of the eels and the fins to add an H to the entire fish. I'll also add a little amount of skills you are on the fish with very thin, small, small strokes with that same color. And now we'll take that away lecture, which we mean by mixing ultramarine blue to pilot the edges of the fins. And that you can see again, I am going with small, small strokes in the required direction and I am keeping the edges. Messy. Shop so as to get the perfect effect of the fish. So just keep doing this along with me. Also, when you add this coelomic sure that you are or your red color has dried up a bit because we don't want this color to bleed into your red. So just make sure your fish galleries little bit dry before you start doing this lead for the tail as well as the fence. Now we are done with the painting details. We'll just detail out the I forced with the black Palo. So I'm just letting it, I'm leaving a tiny white dots for the twinkle in the eye. So that's it. And after doing the, I will start bordering our fish, swam these detailing it out with the black color. Make sure to use small-sized brush for this and look where I am giving the lines, how takeoff and I am making those angle. We along with me with the black color, do this when your entire fish has dried up or as the black color will bleed into the vehicle and everything, I create a mess. So we don't want that. So make sure that your painting and straight up before you start doing this blackboard. Hi. Okay, Now it's done. I think there is something missing. They just either did Redfin OEO to make it look compete because I feel a little incomplete. So just either Redfin, I think I'll also add it in the boredom. It's looking much more by now. So for these things also, you can do slightly bored at it with the black color if you want. That also had a few Willard blue strokes. You are at the start of the spiel and fins. Because my earlier pallor is not that visible cents per gigabyte gone. Wait, So I'm just starting a few strokes to just highlighted more and give it a better effect. After you are done with that, just a few drops of the wavelet Palo, which we had given for the deal, Boyd abortion as well as with the radius. So we just started a few speckles in the background with those two colors of the fish. We're almost done. Let me just type some white highlights. So I'm using my gosh, wait to ISO didn't highlights to the fish with my light gala. If you don't have a wash color, try using any opaque way that you have because that will look more beautiful on the particulars, but you don't have any other opaque medium, then you can try using a Jelly Roll pen or the highlight open audience. Just simply use watercolor gouache if you want. What else? You can also totally ignore this step. But I like to give a little highlight on my painting, which makes the painting look more lay VI fields, so edges straight to highlight sodium binds with the weight color. Again, make sure that you meet these bike lanes steady ten, because they are just start dwindling highlights. So use the thinnest brush that you have to meet this small little highlights on your fish. And the last one here, and we are done with this fish. Hope you enjoyed doing this. See you again in the next lesson. 14. Day 12 - Orca (Killer Whale): So now we'll start with the basic pencil sketch first. So just to observe carefully and just get it along with me. If you want. The sketch of this basic fish is also uploaded under the resource section in the Silurian project section. So you can just find the sketch from there and crank it out. I'm pretty sick from dead and then start directly painting with me. Tonight we are done with the sketch I adjust. It is darker pencil marks to make them lighter. And then we shall start with the bean day before, starting with the background of this fish. So for that I am giving a nice thin lead off water wash to the entire background to start with the building. So just a nice thin single quote of Waldo on your background, apart from the fish portion, rest of the beep, I'm just giving it an Einstein later for the wash so that I can give an a. So I gone red building background for this painting. So after giving the wash, I start with my light blue color. So I'm just taking some light blue color in my brush directly. And I'll just start dropping it in various random shapes on the people. So you can see I'm going to get an ace abstract effect for the entire background with this blue color. After that, I start getting a little amount of ultramarine blue at certain places, it's just random strokes. You can also add a little amount of water if you feel that I've gone too dark. Once you are satisfied with that stripe background, just like the entire painting dry up first. And after it's dried up, then we'll start being our beautiful fish. So for that, I'll be being done with the darkest blue that I have. So for that, I have I did a little amount of black color to my abortion, blue below to get a very, very dark, saturated blue, yellow. So I have got this blue color by mixing the abortion loopless a little amount of Blackboard. So I start from the edge with my darkest blue shade, which I mean, I'm then in the central portion, I'll just go simply with my portion, blue, yellow and blend both of these blue to create a nice sheet. And I be using the same technique for the entire fish. So basically I just applied a darker blue collar at certain places. And then I go with that for the remaining parts and I'll blend those bought into each other nicely to give it an ice sheet. Hi. Okay. And so the remaining parts are going to be wide as they are, So I'll just start bordering the areas. I'll be using normal watercolor black color for it, but the bordering areas, and I'll be using my smallest round brush to give a nice border to the entire fish. So just keep observing carefully how and where I'm placing my borders and just keep doing accordingly along with me. In the last year. Hi. I just like there are a few drops of portion blue color in the background to mark some beautiful abstract BBS in the background. And after that, we'll be done with this first. We'll also be adding a little amount of white highlights to this first to just make a sparkler bit more. So let me just complete my splatters for splattering, you can just simply take your abortion view, but I'll add a little amount of water to it and that your brush to get these like doors. And once this black doors and NDI official straight up did a little amount of course, right color and add a few highlights with the white color. You can use any other white color if you don't have a gross rate or else you can also use a highlighter pen or something to just add on a few strokes. So I am just using my wash weight color with my round brush. And with that, I'll add a few strokes to add a few highlights on this fish. And after that, we'll be done with this painting. So I hope you are enjoying the series and we are halfway through it already. So I am excited to see all your works. Keep uploading them in the student project section and see you again in the next lesson. 15. Day 13 - Crab: So again, in starting with the basic senses get to, I have already drawn it lately. I just meet deadlines Docker, and show you step-by-step how we are supposed to go about it. So we start with the central body part, then we divide the body into different parts like this. After that, we start with though frank clause, and then we just draw the links of the graph. So just to wait quickly along with me if you don't wish to sketch this, and if you just want to paint their Daniel, definitely do star download Sketch or the drawing ridges dead in the resources section or in the student project section. And from there you can just print it out entry sit on your watercolor paper. And then you can start painting along with me directly if you don't wish to draw it first. This still use that evidence sketch and crazy too long. And then you will be good to go to start with the Benin. So we are done here with the basic sketch. It's an EDI easy sketch and all the lake, all the sketches in these classes are pretty easy. So I'll just erase off the dark pencil lines forced to make them lighter. And after that, we start with the beam. So for the bending, again, I be giving a nice thin layer of water wash to the entire background forced. And we think I laid bare ground first and then we'll start painting the mean gram. So as you all know, we want the mean focus to be the grab, which is the subject of this being done. So we will be building the background very light and very abstract. And for this one as well, IV was in contrast color for the background. So we go with a lighter shade of blue or green maybe, which is going to be a good contrast color which we are going to be using for the graphene. So I have competed with the water wash and I'll start with the green Galileo. You can use any color that you late for that Michael, I'm just going in with my green and I'm just tapping the follow on might be for just taking the weight Gallo by mixing some water on my brush and I'm just tapping, you're done the beeper to get a beautiful abstract backgrounds. So that's how I create those weak, beautiful background effects which are nice, abstract blooms after that later dry a little bit, and then I lose direct danger of caution blue. I'm using a smaller size brush for this to get smaller size to Bloom's. And now main green and Bush billboard titrate up completely. So once your background has completely dried up, then only start building your subject. So for this object ID like GIGO with the record on dry technique, which means that I am using my ninth whitewater color mix with water. And I'm just going with my small round brush. I'm just doing one detailing out directly. So I'm using my crimson red color for this. You can also use a mix of or darker or lighter red lake. You can just go with the crimson, red or vermilion red. And they both of these and just create a sheet going from darker to lighter gradient audience. You can simply give your lean crimson, red over million red color like this. I'll also give it to another bar by agency was small weight gap in between the bars to mark the abstract parts. You can just give one bean oil. So Lake, one vermillion, red color bytes or one crimson vertical a batch. And after that you can just add a yellow or black fellow at the top part when the gullet is deliberate to mock a nice gradient of a little dark fellow at the edge. So I add Among those black to this. You can just add a little black. What else? You can just start a little more ownership or brownish shade, anything with blue. So you can see I have added a very little amount of black color. And after that, I just screw on blending it with my brush with the red color to get a naive model. And then effect of going from the Docker gradient would like the one. So that's how I am doing one blending in nicely with my brush when my fellow is Anna is the weight. So you can keep on repeating these for all the bytes which are here. So I'll be repeating the blend to wash, the crimson graded wash for the entire grab, just the spleen, the red column. And after that, I'll add my little amount of black color. Do it. Xor didn't pipes and glue on blending it with the red. I'll be using the same technique for the entire floor. Grab for the legs and flaws and the body, everything. So just keep observing very carefully where I am giving what Gallo and how I am doing one, being dinner, then blending it with the black and keep doing accordingly along with me. Yeah. Hi. In the last year. Yeah. Yeah. Hi. So now I'm one was done with so I start bordering filling it out a bit more. So for that, as you know, I'm using my smallest round brush, my brush. B1, meeting the board over the entire crab. So just keep on doing it along with me. Hi. Yeah. Quickly spread that a few spots of red for the background. And I'll also add a little highlight of weight. So I'm using my white wash color photos. You can use any weight color that you have to add these highlights. And once we have done, adding the highlights will be done with this. We are done with this painting. Hope you enjoyed doing it. See you again in the next lesson. 16. Day 14 - Seal: So we'll start with the basic sketch as we go for all the lessons. So I'll be drawing the basic outline of the seal here. As you know, I applaud all the fires off the sketches under the resource section so you can just bring it out from there. I increase it out on your vertical to be bold and start building if you don't wish to sketching directly. So just make a nice pencil sketch and after that, make sure that your lanes are late. So if you draw a laid-back forced to leave, that's fine. Or it is if your lines are dark skin, she then you can just use your eraser tool it is slightly and make them later and after that, start painting along with me. So I have done with the pencil sketch and ages store. It is the lines a bit to make them a little IDO. And once we are done with that, we'll start with a background wash for the scene. So for the background, I, again using the on trust color for this one, so forth to foil, I am giving a nice thin lead off water wash to the entire background portion with my bigger size brush, just leave the areas of the beam pencil sketch. And apart from that, for the entire background, just give it a letter for the washed the entire background. Discover it with a single letter of water. And after that, we'll start adding some color to it. So I'll be adding the measuring dark color for this background. You can add any other color that you like. And just make sure to add a little amount of water to your color so that it gets nice. Spread it out nicely with a nice wet on wet wash. So discover that B portfolios to it. Nice layer of water after I just give a nice thin layer of this, start dropping your color like this on the people with random strokes to get a nice abstract effect for the background. Once you are done with the basic words to step off the excess color form the borders with your distributable. After that week for your complete background wash to dry up before you start the mean drawing. So for building the mean drying, I'm starting with the cobalt, blue or yellow, or widow wet on dry technique. So I've just added that little amount of water do microbiome blue. By lowering that, I am starting with the borderline and just giving the plane go along. So let's give back to certain ideas. Just observe that I am giving you, I'm doing it accordingly along with me. After Dava by blue washes done, we'll give them a few highlights certain areas, and we'll blend the light-blue with the cobalt blue. And then after this is done, we can just use our wet brush. I'm just better meaning the remaining portion with water. To get a nice lake effect. So you can see I am just using my clean wet brush and with Waldo, I'm just trying to blame the light blue color in nicely. And Ghaidan Ledoux ingredient enolate the color at the bottom portion. So I just complete all the remaining weight Bart's with this technique and then we'll start the, the link out RC. So we have used simply techniques for completing the same diagonal adding of the seals body. We just started with decubitus view than we are the light blue and blended nicely with each other. And after that, we are just using our wet brush to spread the color nicely. Then I am just taking a little amount of magenta color I did with water in my brush and tapping it on the beeper to create some beautiful spliced doors. I am just adding these little bubbles or one my background bullshit recognize abstract effect using the same velocity use for the background forest wash. After that, just take some ultramarine blue color on your brush and start putting in some dots like this to add a delay amount of extra impact on, on your seals body at a certain part. So I am using the ultimate in blue-collar and when my earlier ladies lake little weight not locally weighted by its not yet completely hydrate also. So I am just quickly adding a few spots on the body to either your debt by dawn on is skin. This I am doing with the ultramarine blue color. You can use any brush for this. I'm using my 0 number round brush directly and just tapping in some Ultramarine blue sports like this where the symbol after that wait for your drain dry up completely unwarranted straight up. Just take a little amount of watercolor black color in your brush and start bordering your entire scene to make it look more beautiful, I need a loud. So just to observe carefully how I'm using the brush and when I'm drawing the lines, steak, then whatever, and just do it accordingly along with me. You can see I am just trying to touch the tip of my brush to get a nice thin edge for the border, I am, I am pressing the brush slightly edge so the media has to get thicker lines. So just observe carefully these Morley design techniques and just keep doing this along with me. With this, we are done with the seal. Hope you enjoyed doing HCI you and then in the next lesson. 17. Day 15 - Star Fish: Tsunami. Start with a basic sketch. So I'm destroying B6 starfish on plane. And the V joint blue for this one. So I'll just draw one here and I'll draw another one besides third of a smaller size. So it's a very simple sketch. But if you still don't wish to dry, then you can just download the sketch file from the resource section and you can just bring it out. I increase it out on your watercolor before and after that, you can just start painting along with me. So I am this slide it is in the Benson. Make them lighter because I don't want the pencil marks to be visible once I'm done with the painting. So here I have just lighten them. And now we can start with the beam. So for this particular drawing, we are going to use a different density for being delivered. So I'm starting to give a nice light blue wash for the entire background. So you can see I have added a lot of water to my view. Hello, I'm with watery blue. I am just going to give a nice plain background wash. I am just going to avoid the area of the starfish. And for the remaining part, I'm just going to give a nice thin layer of water wash with the blue Gallo MLA wash. Buh-bye. Buh-bye. Okay. So now we are done with the wash. So I just I'm adding a little amount of salt on my red water wash to get a nice spectral. So we are going to use a different technique this time to get the abstract background. So once you have just print, get a little amount of soil G Suite for it to dry up completely. And after the gallery straight up, just dust off the salt from the people, and then start building the starfish. So for that, I am using a nice red color for my Starfish. Give a nice thin layer of water wash forced, and then just drop that red color. Forget. I Besso didn't bark. Bark. So just keep observing carefully. Along with me. Hi. So for the smallest Starfish now, I am falsely giving a thin layer of water wars. So this one we are doing with the other technique, which is the atonement techniques. So I'll beginning of the layer of water wash forest and after that I start dropping in my color. So I'm taking some yellow color in my brush and start dropping it on either one age. We now want detailing it out a little more and we won't adding a little more color to it. So again, for the red star, I am adding up augmented collect certain parts. I just sprinkle a little amount of blue color for the background. So I'm using the co-pilot blue color for this. Just sprinkle a few drops. You can just cover your staff wishes so that you don't splatter your color on them. Or it's just quickly tap off this background color from the body of the staffers with your distributor or with your brush? Just like this quickly. And yes, I think that looks perfect now. So let's wait till it dries up and then let start bordering the fishes with a black color. So use a nice 10 round brush Lewis. And this mark the places in which I am doing, the thicker lines and the thin lines. I'm just to work along with me accordingly. Keep observing and painting alone. You back. I'm with us. We are almost done with a happy ending. I just started a few spike dollars of red color for the background. Looks much better now I feel I liked abstractness, which you are getting you. I hope you are enjoying the class. Keep painting and uploading your project. See you again in the next lesson. 18. Day 16 - Yellow Tang: So before start with a basic pencil sketch as we do for all are trying. As you know, all the pencil sketches are available under the resource section. So if you don't want to sketch it, you can just download the sketch from there. And you can just do research on your watercolor paper and then directly start being diagnosed with me. So this is again a simple flourish which has the basic structure, the body, the deal, the fins are decide and a fin in the central part like this. And when i so that's it. Very simple one. It is the pencil marks a little to make them later. So this, I am using the kneadable eraser for that because it's easier to just meet the pencil sketch like we did. And after that, I start with the background. So for the background for this winter and I am just starting with a thin layer of water wash. And we'll again be doing the wet on wet technique for the background for this first. So first of all, lambdas covering the entire background area with a thin layer of water with my brush. So just avoid the fish part. So just being older, meaning areas which are there apart from the fish. So I'm not going inside the fish lines, but painting the rest of the area with a thin layer of water. After you are done, being done with a thin layer of water, we'll start adding color. So you can definitely choose an evil, whichever you like. So for this painting, I'm going to move with the contrast color scheme for the background. So I'm just taking my magenta color in my brush and you can see the color is already weight. So I've mixed some water with managing dark color. And I'm just tapping on my brush to get these beautiful blooms or my wet-on-wet wash. So this technique is giving me a very nice abstract effect for the background. So since though hello, which I'm using is already working, the blooms or they didn't nicely feed they relate and giving a nice abstract effect for the background. After that, I just stepped off the colors lactose, which are there inside the fish. So you can also cover your fish forced and then start doing this lactose. But then it becomes a bit tedious because the fish is of random shape and the area is not that huge because we are using the smallest size paper. So I'm just tapping the unnecessary flack doors which I don't want, but my distributor immediately once I have just factor them so that they will get just lifted off from the people. Students will be gone. So that's how I am doing it. You can just cover your fish if you want and then use this matters. So now I'll be using a little darker color, pigment of the same magenta, yellow. So I'm just using them. They didn't less water in the value this time. I'm mode of color pigment. And with the magnetic dipole, I'm again adding a few more splatters. Do the markets smaller slideshow. So this smallest factors I'm making with my smaller size brush. The earlier ones I made them with a larger size brush as well as the water in that Paolo was more. So that's why I got because gliders and the sun and getting smaller ones. This just again do this lactose and engines just dab off the excess calibrate. You don't born with your people. So now let the entire background cryo completely and after that, start building the fish. So for the fish, I'm just using the chrome yellow color and the edge, I'm giving a big Mendelian loci. And after that, I'll go on spreading it with water. So just use the chrome yellow color accident parts and Guan just reading it with water to get an uninsured, just observe carefully and they interact with me accordingly. So now we are done with the basic wash, and now I'm just taking a little amount of orange color. The orange color. I am just going on adding a few deals like the lines on the fins. So I am doing this when microbial auxiliary still a legitimate. So that's why I get nice soft texture on this one. So I'm using my smallest brush and the damp brush. I'm just adding a few leaders of your lines or something to give an instructional and do this. And now let's add a little dot for the eye with the black color. And I'll also add a few more solids, black dots on the building. So I am again using the same measuring the collaborative Stein. The background has dried up already, so that's why you get nine specific dots. So just like those backdoor straight to avoid the fish, you can cover it up if you want orders to stray, to hold your brush close to the people to avoid the fish. And if any spectrums are there on the fish, then just quickly tried to pick it up with your clean brush like this, just straight through, blended in the fish oil is just pick it up, pick the color up with your clean brush or the Turkish people. So it won't leave any marks. And after that, I start doing the border for this fish. So you can use the smallest round brush that you have. I'm using my 0 number round brush. And with that, I am just one making the border with the black color, just carefully observed data and making the border thin and absolute embarks, I'll be making a table. So when you want to get a nice thin border, make sure to hold your brush vertically to get a good control on the depth. So just straight Rick Boucher and get a nice thin line. And if you wish to make a tickle, then you can just press your brush elected to get thicker stroke so you will be able to get the thick and thin strokes with the same brush as well. So just keep observing carefully, keeping them along with me. Hi. In this way we are done with the borders, this painting as well. So again, in the next lesson. 19. Day 17 - Sword Fish: So first of all, the stack that the basic pencil sketch. Again, it's pretty simple sketch, but a few still don't wish to draw it. You can definitely just download the sketch from there, so section. And from there you can just sprinkle it, increase it on your watercolor paper. And after that, you can just enjoy painting along with me. So when sketching also tried to draw the trying very likely if possible, because we don't want the pencil marks to be visible. Ones have been English done. So I am destroying it a little darker right now so that it's nicely visible for you guys. And I just lately resolve the extra pencil marks to make them later. So we are almost done with this. I decide that I and this is completed now. So I'll just make it like don't buy just grazing the drawings lately. Okay. So once you are done with that, we'll start with the painting. So for this particular first, I am going to start with the fish being enforced. And I'm going to go with the wet on wet technique to start with. So I'm giving a nice them never heard or watched the entire fish. Just be careful while you give the wash. We don't want to go outside the border line of the first suggests try to v inside the lane which we have marked with the Benson and this given Einstein letter or the wash to the entire fish. And after that we'll start being triggered. So we are done with the Polaris way. And now for being done, I'll be taking my new color. And with the cobalt blue color, I just start dropping it in certain areas. So I'm mixing a little amount of water to my cobalt blue force before I start being done. And then the topmost layer, I'll give a little bit longer localized compared to the bottom layer. I just go on spreading this color on my water. So just go on doing that. And now I just take a limited amount of blue in my brush. And with abortion, you start adding the darker blue pigment at certain places. So just carefully observe the pieces in which I'm adding. I'm doing it accordingly around with me and one landing excited with that lighter color. Hi. So now we're completed with a being done. Wait for it to dry up completely and then start building your entire fish. So foreboding I'm using my normal or develop black. And with my brush, I'm just going one, making a nice water to my fish. Just observe carefully when I'm making a thinner border and wait, I'm using a thicker stroke and just keep on doing accordingly along with me. In you. So we are almost done with the bordering. Let's add the I wait for it to dry up completely after that. Start with the background color for the background, I'm using my machine. So since we have just drawn our subject forced in this drawing, I'm just showing you an example of how you can add the background later on Israel. So just be careful with the edges near the fishy India. Apart from that explained. So just give a nice thin blade led off by Jane dropping color. Sheila Walsh rate, you just be careful near the fish edges. And apart from that, you can just go on painting with a clean wash. So I just wanted to show you the example of how you can do it even after beating the subjects facts what we are doing, you're being careful at the edge and then just go whitewash again. You can see I'm giving the wash. So that's how we are going to be in the background. So now we're almost done with the walls. You can just tap off the excess color. If there is any from the edges or from any central part of your one. I'm after that just a little, you know, use your weight brush. I'm just clear the edges so I just go with my white brush like this and just blender asleep, the end of the people. Okay, so we have done this nice abstract wash in the background. And now I just blacked out a few drops of my machine, dark pink color over the background. So for that to state some watery paint in your brush and just tap on your brush like this to drop some sports trick to avoid though fishing area or you can also cover regulate something or if back to induce splatter a few drops on the floor. Don't worry, you can just quickly pick it up with your dry brush orchestra people. And then I'm adding a little dot of light on the eye of the fish like this. And we are done with this painting. Hope you enjoyed doing Good to see you again in the next lesson. 20. Day 18 - Butterfly Fish: We start again with the basic pencil sketch. Again, this is a very beautiful shaped fish and as easy one, we'll start with the pencil sketch. And just remember to make it very lightly. I am drawing a dog so that it's nicely visible to you all. But you can just draw it lightly enforced, it set up so that you won't need to erase the pencil marks in case you don't wish to dry it. Not just interested in painting. And then you can definitely just go ahead and resource section and just download the pencil sketch from there. And you can just trace this pencil sketch on your watercolor paper and then you can enjoy painting along with me. You can definitely do that if you don't wish to draw it or sketch it, forced. Just to make this beautiful from die, we'll add a few more stripes and details onto the ferocious backside. Maybe Huo, one more Hill. Yeah, that's it. We are done with the basic sketch. I will just erase the pencil lines a bit to make them lighter. Because we don't want the pencil marks to be visible once we are done with the painting, we are ready to paint now. So let's start with the background painting first. For this one, I'm using the purple color. I'll be using a mixture of puppet and violet color shield. For the background. Over here, you can see I have added a nice amount of water to my watercolors to paint this background. And I am using large sized round brush for this. Just remember too, go slowly near the border areas of the fish. We don't want the color to be going inside the fish's body. So I am just trying to avoid that. Rest of the part discolored and abstract plane manner. Start with the toilet color for the remaining part, and I'll just try to mix this papilla and boil it and to each other nicely. And just cover the entire background with a nice play in color wash. I'm going slow for the borderlines as you can see. The rest of the part. I'm just going on painting it again with the color. Keep elected amount of water added to the color. As you can see here. Itself, a flowy nature. Just one coloring the entire background with these two colors and cover all the parts of the paper. Once we are done with the background color, what I am going to do for this particular abstract background is I am just going to take my tissue paper and tap it like this on the people when the color is still wet. Just pick up some color from it and leave some texture on. So you can see that I'm pulling my tissue paper to make it into a ball like this. I'm just tapping it over the color in certain areas to get a nice abstract texture on the background. I'm doing this when my background color is still wet so that I get the color lifted up in certain areas and just get this beautiful texture onto it. Okay. We are done with the background as well. So wait for the background to dry up completely and then start painting your fish. I'll be showing you two techniques in which you can paint this fish. So first of all, I'm starting with the black stripes. So this fish is going to be off white, black and lemon yellow color. Firstly, I'm going with the black stripes. So right now you can see there is a defined line to the stripes. You can just keep it as it is like this. Or else what you can do is just take a wet brush and move over the edge of this strip which we had given to get. A nice soft look to the edge. This way. Even this look really nice and really as compared to a fixed border. So you can do this technique as well to get a nice soft edge for all the stripes that you'll make for the fish's body. I be using the same technique and I'll be going with the black color. I'll be going with the lemon yellow color in certain areas. And in this fairly complete the officious forced coloring part. So let's keep on doing it. You can also do it and the way that it does apply the water forced make this and after that go forward with the black color to pick the soft edge. Both of these methods you will be able to get that soft edge. Just keep the observing me and keep doing along with me. We added the lemon yellow for the tail part as well as for the iPad. And I think we'll also add a nice funnier with the lemon yellow color. This is the portion which is that outside and I'll just add a little amount of color inside the black stripe as very wide. My friend Italo, like this. This is how we are adding the colors. And we are almost done with the first painting of the fish. After that, I start bordering. Again. For bordering, there are two things which you can do. The first one is if you want to keep the softness of the inside parts as it is, then you can just go and border the remaining fish. Bordeaux. I'm not border the inner stripes. If you want the stripes to be very, very defined, then you can just order the stripes as well and not look at the soft edges. It's your choice. I am leaving it up to you. I am just going to show you how it will look once it's border completely even the site as the stripes which are that inside. I'll be bordering those as well. And then you can just compare it and you can see for yourself, if you wish to murder the stripes or if you wish to just keep it in the natural locus as well. That's upon you to decide. So you can just observe, have a look at how it looks once it's done, and then decide if you wish to go with the bordering on not just to observe carefully how I am bordering it. Where I'm using Theano lines, where I'm using thicker strokes and just keep on doing it accordingly along with me, you can use your smallest round brush for design using my 0 number round brush. You've been you always, anyone, whichever you're comfortable with, and just keep doing this bordering portion. Sybil watercolor black color. I'm done with the bordering. I just take some little amount of color in my brush now. Just a few abstract drops off this box with color onto our background. Once you're satisfied with it, you will be done with the paintings. See you again in the next lesson. 21. Day 19 - Koi Fish: Now we start with the basic pencil sketch of this fish. It is again, another simple fish which we are going to draw. But if you don't wish to draw it on your own, then you can definitely just download the first sketch from the resource section. Then you can just print it, raise it on your watercolor paper. And after that, you can enjoy painting along with me. Again, as I have been telling you through all the lessons, make sure to draw the pencil sketch very light because we don't want the pencil marks to be visible once we are done with the watercolor ring, right now I am just drawing it a little darker so that it's nicely visible to you all. But I will be erasing it slightly to make it lighter after I'm done with the sketch. And only then I will start with the painting. So just keep observing and doing this along with me. We're almost done with the pencil sketch. I will just add a few fins at the back here. Then we'll be done. So just, as I mentioned, lighten the sketch a bit by just erasing it slightly. So I'm making the pencil lines later by erasing it by my kneadable reason, you can use any reason even says that you have. I'm now we can start painting this. So I'll be starting with the background again, and I'll be going this time again with a beautiful contrast background color. For the background. I'm again doing a wet-on-wet wash. So make sure that you don't go inside the lines of the fish while you go on giving the background wash, just give it to the entire background part and just go with a nice thin layer of water wash over the water wash will start painting. So we'll do the wet-on-wet technique. You'll be using contrast color, though. It's just going to be orange, and I'll just color the background with blue. Let's start with the cobalt blue color. And you can see I'm just using a little wet color and I'm just dropping it in various random strokes on my paper. Nicely blending on with the water in whatever shape or desires. And we are getting the beautiful abstract background deal. This is one different technique which you can use to paint your backgrounds. So just keep on dropping your color on the whitewater like this. To get a nice abstract, beautiful background, you can also add towards read differentiates to the background if you want. So I'm just going with microbiology we'll host. And I might also add a little darker blue at certain parts. I'll just tap off the excess color between the inside the body of the fish with my distribution. And I will continue with the same technique for the background on the rest of the part as well, which is the upper part and the right and the left part, which are meaning. I will again use the same technique which is giving a wet wash and then dropping in some of the cobalt blue color with my brush like this. You can also drop a little cobalt blue color and you can also mix it with a pinch off portion blue or ultramarine blue are places to give it a nice sheet of dual color. So just keep observing and doing along with me as we being the entire background. So I'm just dropping a little troponin area. So you can also drop in OWL if you want to add onto a different color nicely. Let's continue doing this for the entire background. Once you are done with the background, wait for it to dry up completely or use your dryer to just try the background off. And after that, start painting with your orange color for the fish. Just absorb what kind of shapes I'm making it better, I am making it, and then do it accordingly along with me. This is a nice bright orange color which I am using at certain parts, and at certain parts I'd be using a lighter orange. So to get the lighter orange, all I'm going to do is just add a lot of water to the orange color to make it lighter and I'll add that. So just look for where I am adding a lighter shade and where I am adding a pigmented shade. I'm just keep on painting along with me. You can see I am just making a random abstract like patches on the first to get the nice texture and the effect of the beautiful colorful skin of the fish. So just observe where I am doing it and how much approximate size and shape I am doing it with. And just do it accordingly along with me. Okay, So now we're done with the orange color ones. So I will now make a little darker shade of orange, which is somewhere close to where million colors. So I'll just add my more million red and orange color to get a shade in between these two colors. And with that shade, I'll start adding a few more overlapping shapes over my earlier shapes. Make sure you are earlier color has dried up completely before you start doing this. Otherwise, I'll just show you what will happen if you do this when you are bottom color is still wet, you will get something like this. The edge will be softer. I'm not look sharp. If you want nice sharp patterns, then make sure that your earlier layer has completely dried up before you start painting the top layer. Then just go on making a few shapes with this darker orange shade at certain places. So just observe what I am doing it and just wait accordingly. Number round brush with my black watercolor. As you know, as we do for all the fishes earlier as well. We had done this for all the alleles of business as well, and we'll be doing the same thing. So just carefully observe where I'm using thicker lines and where I'm using thinner lines. And just use your black watercolor and your smallest size brush. And go on drawing these borders along with me. Just don't forget to observe carefully where the thickness of the lines is wearing. And then one doing this along with me. We are done detailing and we are done with this beautiful, easy painting. Hope you enjoyed doing this. See you in the next lesson.
