Then we have various sized precious. The bigger drudge is number on. The smallest is number on. I have a boy for one. I have to find Linus when this point through. Second this pointy on find five. You can even use Sketch Benson Marco's instead of thes then I haven't a razor on offensive . You can't even use a mechanical pencil. Instead of this. You need a pair of scissors on a glue stick on. We will even require a rag. I use court in black because it is reusable on equal friendly. Many people use paper towels are even tissue papers, these other only materials that will need for the class. These are very easy to get materials on. You might even have them already. I will see you in the class 3. Sketching ideas part 1: We will allow some preparation for the class where we will sketch a few ideas. I will provide you the images which we will create right now so that you can direct later for to them Ordell's. You can use your own ideas. Let's start sketching. I will draw a rectangle on one side off the page, which is roughly off the size off our final page. I have a six b pencil with me. You can even use a mechanical pencil. So for the first project will draw a landscape. Here are some mountains. Try to keep it simple. We don't want any details or anything. Baby will just roll forms. I will draw some abstract lines over your toe. Indicate land. I will provide the pdf including these sketches so that you can download them and use them as a reference. So, yes, this is our first sketch and we can place our paper which we have to stick as a collage Over here on, we can raise the lines, the overlapping lines. Yes, we will proceed to the next stitch. Now a rectangle. We can add a trio in this one. So here are the mountains again Andi, Let's draw a three year. It is not an issue If it goes out off the books When more smaller tree over your Onda We can pee start goulash paper here to make it a bit Cereal I like toe are different objects in unusual places. I like to add windows in the sky. It looks a bit interesting. It adds interest individual you are making You can drove in those or plants in the sky or fish swimming in the sky, our flowers floating in the sky You can draw anything So this is the second sketch. We can add more details We've been led these lines here My lines are not at all street. As you can see, they're not even deliberately wavy or anything. But I'm just drawing freely So you don't have tohave straight lines to sketch order Draw. Okay, we will do the next one Now a rectangle. We will go a bit detailed In the next run, I will draw a building your a simple building by drawing a smaller rectangle with a base and some windows. Oh, are a door. We will draw a door forced on a big window of it Grizz. Add some smaller windows. Andi. Some even smaller ones in the middle. Let's draw a horizon line Onda A dream Vegas. So then you start drawing. You get new ideas as you go. I can't even draw a small a tree. Here you can repeat the ideas from your previous kitsch. It is completely fine because that is how you develop your sketches. Should I are mountains. Okay, we will draw clouds. Simple clouds with some interesting details are decorative details. Let's drove and more on the other side. And these are only sketches. We don't have to be super perfect while doing these. We're done with that thought sketch. 4. Sketching ideas part 2: we will do the next one a bit different. We did three off these landscapes, so we will do something different. Now. Let's draw to smaller rectangles inside this. I will paste the voter color papers in this place. So here I will act some details. Andi, I will convert this into a bottle or a judge. You can see it seemed that this one, but let's draw a narrow mouth for this. We can draw some plants inside these borders. Simple shaped leaves. Andi. Let's draw flowers inside this bottle. Onda Base, A really attractive looking drawing can be made with simple lines. So next we will develop this sketch. I haven't sure variation in this one medias sized bottles and a longer one as well. Add Mount and beasts provider mouth. For this, you can draw a smaller plant in this small bottle. Add a base. The can draw off window in the back to show that these bottles are kept inside somewhere a different kind of a window. For this, we will draw the last one. Now draw a horizon line and then mountains. Let's make this a bit more surgical by adding windows in the sky even some shelves with bottles kept in the sky Add the squares in the middle like re added in these where we can paste our paper. So, yes, we had done. We have created thes six catches which revealed a for too well making artworks. These are really simple ones. If you want, you can experiment with different forms and shapes. You like your favorite, please your favorite plant in the jars or in the bottles and off course. You're free to use thes catches, which I will provide to you. I've made you in the next preparation radio. 5. Preparing a collage paper: way. Have our sketches ready. We will prepare our paper which will have to use as equal lodge.

And then I will use Crimson lake and Indian yellow so on I won't makes thes colors in the palette, but I will reclaim. Mix them on the people. We will need our bullet for now. I'm taking Prussian blue pleasure in you because really nice grand You letting you thick when applied On paper it it's pigments get separated from water on it settles down on the big but so it gives really nice texture. I'm taking a lot off water as well as a lot off color. So the proportion off water and color are equipped on. I have lorded my pressure with this mixture. I just start from the top and now I will take my next color. This is Crimson Lake and I will just makes this with this view on the paper itself. On I will apply this still hell and now every Take your law And then, you know, Indian yellow and crimson Lake mixes really uniquely with each other. And we warned this mixture to be done on the paper as it looks really natural. And lastly, they will mix oppression view on Have you do the scene right? Mixing these two colors So we will keep this to try and do our next step after this dries. So now the paper has dried completely and we will do our next step, which is to cut this paper in small sizes in squares and subject Bangles. So if you choose the sections where two colors have mixed with each other very nicely. So first of all, Bill, choose this section. Well, they got a rectangle on. Be careful while using sizzles. It's cool. We have Patrick dangling. We can even make a smaller one. No, I got this section, which is really interesting. We've got some big rectangles, some smaller ones, some smaller squares, some big squares. We have sketched many windows in the sketches, so we need some smaller squares for that as well.
