Watercolor Artist


Hello, I'm Fitri Kamila. I am a 19 years old artist based in Jakarta, Indonesia. I've discovered that I am so into art, (especially watercolor) when I was back in Junior High School, about 4 years ago. The process was so slow but I'm getting there! I love flowers, but been trying to paint landscapes and handlettering at times, which I wish I could teach some in the future!

1. Introduction: however, one. Welcome to Jack Hardly floor wreath class. My name is Frederick Camilla. In this class, you will learn about how to make your own flood reads like this. With relatively inexpensive materials. You will find out this step by step, how to paying three times of flavors, two times off leaves and several examples of filler flowers. Plus how you combine them together and put them together into one piece to make the final artwork. In the end of the class, of course, you'll be able to create your own flower wreath. So without too much talking, let's just dive right into it. 2. Supplies: what I call a paper. You can use any kind of water called paper of your choice, like hot press are cold press. But today I'm going to use a cancer. No quarrel in cold press. This is a £140 or 300 GSM your old to need somewhere called pains. Most of them are banjo. The thing that I like a boat pains in tubes that you don't have to scrub your water color pens into your mixing three. So we'd save a lot of time. But if it on Lee have more color in pants like this, this will do great to personal prevents is and also a watercolor brush. It is important to invest in some high quality brush like this silver black velvet. But any kind of watercolor brushes you have right now we'll do just fine. Just make sure you have at least two different sizes of fresh, so you will have more variety in your brush strokes, cups off water, the 1st 1 going to be used to clean your dirty brushes, and the other one to make sure your burgess clean and then the next one fabric clothes or PayPal towel like this to remove access water from your brush. But I prefer to use an old Polo T shirt like this and cut it into smaller pieces because it can be used multiple times. Money saver, eco friendly. Unlike the paper towel and then the next one, you will also need a calm pass to to make the outline of the red round bowl. Or anything that is around can be used as a substitute and then mixing tray or a clean plate anything that has a smooth surface that you can use as a mixing palette. This is gonna be used to makes all your pains later, but I use a piece of glass that comes from a broken frame and a small piece of watercolor paper, too fast out the colors mixing before you actually use it. 3. Basic Stroke Practice: Okay, so before we actually jump into the flower wreath faint e, we're gonna do a little exercise to losing your most of us a little bit. So I got five strokes over here that you can use to practice before you paint your flower wreath. Let's do this one first. It's just a straight lines. He was due in straight lines from here, barely touching the paper. Theun makes ones. I want to show you how to do it. But I highly suggest you have you feel the entire page with the face. Extra practice number two way. Start from here from the top to the bottom, barely touching. And then you're slightly press until the whole bristle spread. Then pull it up, pull it a little bit there. Get this weird. Just you can just go back and fix it again. Perfect. We're going to do from the bottom to the top, saying like the previous one. All right, now let's makes a color a little bit. So I'm gonna take my yellow, and then I will help my indeed girl on the ship on Lee. And then just like that, once again. So you get this really nice colors, Theo. The next one, Number one grand color. She was straight lines and then slightly press in press and Trish she lifted up. So it's again, again, again. So just thin lines. Sick line, Shannon, Thank forensic. And the number four is is very often and number four is really often to use in flower petals. We start from over here to the bottom and then started going from to talk to the bus like this. I can just go back and let's do it again with full force on. Then really slowly lift it up. There you go. On the same thing, Meek. Just fix the edges on the last one. Be God, what I call see stroke or coma stroke, Just like Esther pack safe. So it's just a bunch of seas like this. This these IHS Okay, that's all over the basic stroke. I'm just going to continue until I feel his entire page. Uh, 4. Leaf #1: Welcome back to the class. So Okay, we're gonna learn how to paint this and this one over here. So let's start with this one first. So this one, you draw. Ah, really thin line. Barely touching. And then start making the basic stroke like you have just learned in the previous video like that. Sure. It again. Finn. Line barely touch. You can always go back and fix them Cymbeline again. E on. Fixed it a little bit or you can can do it. Then let's do it in addition. Angle then lines then . Now, let's try to make this. Let me show you. I usually start with a really small leaves on the top. I'm probably makes it a little bit with indigo, so it has more variety of colors. All right. And then I started with a bigger one on a small one over here. Not so big then a really dark indigo over here. Then we go back to college Green. I saw one on Let's do this one granted about us. Maybe it takes a little bit too much. Just editor. What over here? To fill the gaps usually after a really big one, leave I start river. I continue with the small leaf underneath. Then like this, we got into Go again Over here. Finish really small over here to bury. Let's try again. I'm going to speed this up. Uh oh. - Uh uh. Oh, okay. Whenever you're ready, you can jump onto the next lesson. 5. Leaf #2: Hello, everyone. Welcome back to the class and I were just gonna jump into this. I can leave, which is just a ah, slightly longer version off the 1st 1 So no. Same with the previous leave. You just gonna create a small, thin lines and then press your brush until it's fully spread. Lift it up. Let's try again. You can also wiggle them toe. They don't look so stiff. No, we're gonna make the Twix start from the very top, wiggled a brush a bit. You can always fix them if you don't feel satisfied with the first stroke brush if you feel any difficulties. Ah, While painting the leaves under left side, you can always start your paper room. Uh, and dunk. I'm going to spit up the video. So if you want to watch it in his lover version, you may want to changed playback speed on your screen right now. Congratulations for completing the live course. I hope you're ready for the next lesson. 6. Flower #1: okay for the farmers. I have prepared threw flowers for you to learn. We're gonna start with this first to paint a rose flower is a little bit tricky because you might just end up with a block off colors in your paper. So one thing to remember you see, over here there are a lot of white spaces. If there is no white spaces like this, it will just end up something looking like this. If you don't want it, it looks weird and doesn't really have ah character like this. And then you make another one. Another one. That is a little bit sicker. Another one. I'm just a little lines all over it. Don't forget. It's up to then deep your brush and rinse the pain a little bit. Just once dupe it brings okay And then create another one like that. Another one again? Then we need to go to the top two. No, no. Over here. Rinse it again. Ditch rents my bet and we go. It critical your brush a little bit. There you go. Let's try again. This time I'm using production rose with yellow. All right. Start from the sea, then go my God of the sea again. Kerf lines over here. Never gonna talk. Friends it dip. It rents. There you go. Are. If you want to create the odor pedals like this, let me show you. Okay? I could see sin lines on a thick clients. Thin lines. You can shin lines, thick poop, too much water. And we start from here like that. And then another one. Perfect. Make it a little bit bigger. Like that on one over here. The job is gonna be a lot easier if you use a juicy brush like this while doing so, you can add another colors. - Okay , let's try again. - 100 secret colors in occur so you can have more dimension to it over here too. What? All right in here. 7. Flower #2: No. We jump into the next farmer. I will use my big brush. Just dip it too yellow. So what do you want to do to make old pedals Even make five thoughts before I start to make sure which where I'm going. One to three. Far fresh. Just, sir. Make another one. I'm gonna have my corner and rows over here. 123451 In here. Just add a touch of yellow. Well, here, three right is here for and for If you notice the pedals are not touching to each other. Andi, I find it a little bit hard when you're not, get used to painting with a straight paper like this. So you can either rotate your paper or you can move your buddy. It's just what Whatever works for you. That's try again. 1223451 Over here, on the top to right here. Serie Far and five. Master, you done that for a little dots in the middle. But be careful off. Bleeding in the paper. Haven't dry. I might bleed 8. Flower #3: So in this flower there are no pedals. That looks the same. Okay, lets grab the collar. Let's just grab our color. We're going to start from here and then on the right. So the right pedal line in tow, left Settle London the bottom, starting from the top. Make a really huge and thick. See then during again. Leave some white parts alone. Live some live some part alone. Live some. You might want to leave some white whites phase in there, right? No, last. Then restart doing the bottom. You can start from the bottom to did itself. And then we do their bottom and begin at two pedals under bottom like this. Come on over here. And also they dry. You can the little details in the middle. I know she didn't see because none of them are completely dry. I might have some bleeding over here. 9. FIllers: Hello, guys. So, officer, you finished a whole process off own flower, Leave basic strokes practice. We're gonna jump into the filler flowers. So you see the red circles over here and here and here. In here. Thes are hole filler flowers. So they are being used for feeling empty spaces on the flower wreath. So, like this, this sworn on this one, the's are fillers. Without them, the flower wreath will have so many anti spaces around it. So it is really important to make a few off filler flowers. We're gonna start first filler. I'm gonna grab the mix of indigo and clinical Rose. I'm starting by just saying random throw Colliver it from the top to the bottom like this, Theo. Very blood. Um, must be really white on the very tough should be really thin. Can You might want to live a little bit off. Avoid space in the middle. For that, I'm gonna grab the green. It's okay if the colors pleads. Okay, let's try another one. Just make that's like a negative news. Uh, - all right. Great job. Now let's continue to the next lesson. 10. Final Artwork: okay. I have all my tools prepared, starting with spring waters on our work clothes. Make a circle and erase them a little bit. So started lines won't be to office. I'm going to take the conundrum, Rose. Mix it with yellow car and take just a little bit. Off you go. I'm gonna make a rosy here, make another one next to the 1st 1 with the conductor Bill Rose and then to go, we're gonna make a really deep violet. I'm gonna put it in here. You can rotate your paper as need it. So there's gonna be gap between the flowers right here, Here, here. And we're gonna fill the later who has leaves. Uh, - now for the most fun part, filling the gaps between the flowers with leaves. I tend to mix the colors from olive green to a bit of a Loker and then go back to in nickel and and makes it again with all the green. And so I was a little bit of yellow. So, uh oh, basically, this one is just repeated elements off three flowers, two leaves and a few fillers. So I believe that anyone can make it through them having too much trouble. - Uh , thank you so much for coming this far. I really hope that you enjoy and learn something new from this class. 11. Final Artwork (with reference): Okay, so Vergis flow Reith I'm gonna use an inspiration. I'm gonna use this picture, So I'm gonna get my paint smaller , rose, and we're going to start painting release. - Uh oh. We're gonna start feeling so keep that in mind. It's just inspired by a real picture, so it don't have to use the exact same kids, because that's just gonna burn yourself. Uh oh. You're anger at a touch off brown for the rest of the reef. Uh oh. We're finished. Sure. 12.
