1. Introduction: theme. Magical watercolors is what I'm so crazy about, and I'm sure you love them, too. I started my journey with this medium two years ago, and today I cannot stay away from it. Any single date. The blending, unpredictable results at the transparency can only be achieved with this beautiful medium, and I always wanted to achieve similar results on a digital platform with a graphic design background. I'm always experimenting with new digital graphic tools On recently I came across adobe fresco, which is a new app launched by Adobe for drawing tablets. This app is amazing for not one, but for so many reasons. But the main reason we are here today is the watercolor brushes that this comes with. If you have never picked up a real brush and want to explore your watercolor skills on a digital platform, I invite you to join my class where we will learn how to paint this beautiful and magical, realistic particular painting. Hi, my name is the shot and illustrator have a graphic designer currently based in the beautiful city of Dallas. When I recently started playing with adobe fresco, I loved how it replicates the original watercolor effects on a digital device. This act comes with amazing features, and the life pains are my favorite ones. While painting with watercolor brushes on fresco, you don't even feel like you're painting on an iPad or any of the digital to. It gives such a really untraditional feel and look to your painting. In this class, we will go through some of the basics off adobe fresco app. Then we will learn about the tools and brushes. I will teach you how to get those beautiful, cloudy and misty attacks in your painting, how to paint pine trees and finally have to crop your painting to get a profit. To find circular frames, we will take some inspiration from the Internet and use a monochromatic color palette for a project in this class. I'm so excited to see what you come up with in your project. Please do share your paintings in the Project gallery and on Instagram and tag me at Mark Tisha. So let's dive into the Klan and begin the Magic 2. Requirements: for taking this class, you will need a touch base device like an iPad and iPad pro overcome tablet for a surface probe on style is like Apple cancel or any other style is that you may have on the app called adobe fresco. If you don't have this app, you can get a seven day free trial by going to the link I have provided in the description below. If you want to know more about the system requirements for using this app, I've also provided the link in the description where you can find all that information. If you have never used adobe fresco before, don't worry. I have covered the basics that will help you in understanding the steps easily and completing your project for the class. By the end of the class, we will have a magical piece off misty forest, ready to share on social media on even print on paper. In the next section, I will give you an overview off the adobe fresco into face and the basic tools and brushes 3. Fresco Overview: way are on her iPad now, and I open adobe fresco when you open the app, you will just see this dashboard. Very well. See some options on this gallery off your were killed. So I'll just talk about all of these options one by one. So the 1st 1 is home, home as the dashboard page, which we are looking at right now. After that, we have loan under the section, you will see many tutorials provided by adobe itself. After that, we have discovered under discovery you will see a lot of work from by artists from all around the world. And after that, you have young work on that. You will see two options, one as cloud documents. So whenever you work on fresco, the work that you create is automatically saved in Adobe Cloud so you can see all off your work heels. And if you have believed in anything that will come under, delete it. If you have any deleted work and in case you want to restore that, you can just tap on these three dots and restore. You can also permanently delete your work from the adobe clocked. After that, we have two options here. This is create new create newest for creating a new canvas. So under that you will see four options here First is recent. Recent is basically whatever you have created previously, like recent some recent canvas sizes, they will come here then you have saved. If you have saved any particular campus sizes that you may wanna reuse in your projects so you can save them on, they will come under the section. After that, you have digital and print. So digital and print are basically some standard formats that you can use on the main difference between both our is the resolution. So digital is normally very low resolution like 72 d p. I on for print it as 300 g p i just below that, you will see import and open. If you want to import any PSD file any for the shop file and you want to work on your iPad , you can just statically goto PST on. It will take you to this option where you can browse. You can get your files from Dropbox or, if you have anything on your iPad seat saved on your eye. But you can also get that. And if you have anything that you have created and sketch or draw APS well, you can also import them. Apart from that, we have start a new document that was the same at this one, and this is what's coming new to fresco, so they always keep the section updated like, so you can see what's coming in future in fresco on Dhere. There you will see on the top right corner. There is the settings option here. When you open this, you will see some general settings. So under general you will see interface settings. If you want to have your toolbar on your canvas on the right inside, even just use this option and move it to the right inside. So let's say I just stop on right on. And you can also change the color team off on the up link from light to dark. So it has changed her dog, but I don't want it to be dark, and I don't want the tool bar on the right inside, so I'll keep it left next as quick export settings. So if you want to just quickly export your artwork, you can just choose the format, whatever you wanted to and you could just exported as quick export settings. And after that, you can just have a look at all these options. And you can just play around and whatever you want to change, you can just change. All right? For this class, I'm going to use a very basic digital former. I'm going to create the under digital. I'll just go with the square. Former, you can. You can use any size that you are comfortable with, so I'll just click on create document and my document is ready. Okay. It's not I think I did not choose the right one, uh, custom size and square. All right, so we have the document ready. So in the next section, our talk in detail about the brushes and other tools 4. Tools: in this section. We're going to talk about this options that we have on our campus. So 43 options are the brushes. Which are we talking about in detail in the next section. After that, we have a razor. Razor is basically toe. Raise your work. That is very simple. On Razor comes with some selected brushes. After that, we have transformed tool, so transformed tools. If you have created anything, let's say I have created something on. If I top on this, it's gonna select us. We can scale our work. We can rotate it on if you double happened this option, it's going to constrain the proportions so you can just do the changes in the size, which it's gonna maintain the ratio off the high Denver it off the artwork. You can use these two buttons for redo and undo. This is for flipping. Vertical on. Flipping car isn't all right. After that, we have selection tools. Election duel under selection tool. We have four options. One is a random selection, right? When you select something, you have these options here transform. You can transform that canceled. You can raise that on in fresco. We have to stop finger as undue and three toppers return. Yeah, After that, we have masking. If you want to mask that, you can use it. If you have something selected, you can just simply these elected toe de select that simple. Apart from that, we have another thing. No, I don't know how to explain this one, but I'm not very sure about the selection tool because I have no never used us. This works with two lines. I don't know how it works. After that, we have oh, square or a rectangle on a lip selection. So we are going to use the selection tool in our project today. And then we have pain pocket, dude. So if you want to change the color of the selection, you can just select the color on, then being pocket and change the color pain bucket. Exactly. Works like it works and other applications, like for the shop and illustrator. Then we have eye dropper to select the color. Simple. Then this option is for picking up any image from outside and putting it here. We are also going to use this in later. I'll show you that. So if you want to click a image. He was camera. If you have anything in your camera roll, it can just go to photos are. If you have anything in files or creative flower, you can just open that. And then we have this color real option where you can change the color. You can also create a color palette here for the time being. Okay, we have covered the left in part. Now on just these electors. I don't want us. Okay, so on the right inside, we will see these options. So first thing is, these boxes are for the layers, so you can just happened. This want to create a nuclear new layer like this to delete a layer? You can just stop on the layer and you will get all these options. You can delete the layer, hide the layer, duplicate the layer, copy, cut and even create a mask. We're going to use the masking in the next sectional. Explain in detail how masking works and how we're going to use it in our project. Then we have locked the layer on. If you want to convert any vector artwork into pixel, you can do that. You can march the layer to the lower layer. All these options are here and same options we can get by tapping on these three dots, we get the same options. On the right hand side botany corner, you will see this ruler. There's a score creating straight lines. So if you want to create a straight line, you can just to you was this ruler. Sorry, I have to have a brush ready. Simple. This is very simple. If you want to change the orientation, you can just move the ruler anywhere on the screen and create the lines. Sorry if there's a lot of mess here just a little later on. Don't these like this one. You just have to stop it again. That's it. Apart from that, this eyes for hiding the layer. So if you have any work here, you can just hide it like this Simple. And then you have this option. If you tap on this, the layers will be hidden. If you want to see the layers again, you could just stop it again. But the second is for changing the blend modes and capacity off anywhere. So if you want to change the to multiply Born Let Lena born doctor, whatever you want to do, you can do that on capacity. You can also change the opacity from here. Then, if you want to just get rid off every tool here and just work, you can use these two arrows on you are free from distractions on this gear, I can again for the settings. If you want to make any changes in your counters, you can just use that. You can even change the size of the canvas. You can flip the canvas, rotate the candles, all that stuff display around. Then this is for sharing. If you want to publish your artwork, there are many options. Quick export. As I told you earlier, you have to select a format in which you want toe export export as gives you different options on if you want to, directly for your work and the hands you can do that on. Even you can make a time lapse on export that so we're done with the tools Now in the next section, I'll explain more about thes three brushes, how they work and let's go 5. Brushes: All right, So now we're in the canvas here on the 1st 3 options that we see on the left side. Here in the toolbar are the brushes. So the first option is pixel brushes. Pixel brushes are basically just like 40 sharp brushes. Let's see, I just like this hard, wrong brush. If I zoom in quite far, you will see that this is a pixel brush on the fun part is you can work with directors as well as pixels in the same canvas at same time in fresco. So this is really cool. Feature off fresco. Okay, so if you want toe, grab some off your forties your brushes. If you want to import some pressure from the shop or anywhere, you can just go to pixel rushes and there's a plus sign your you can just tap on this and you have two options. So if you click on get more precious, it will take you toe adobe dot com. You will see the library of brushes over here and kids just download them. Whatever you want to use, okay and import from files will take you to your own file folders like Dropbox or you can also go toe iCloud drive or if you have any brushes in your iPad and you could just go there on grab those. So this is a basic function for pixel brush is only I don't think we have anything for directors here. Yeah, under effective Russia's. We cannot do that. So this happens only with picks and pressures. That means for the shop rushes. I have a pixel brush selected. Once you have selected any kind of brush, you will find these some of these options below. Here you can use this bar and take it anywhere on the screen. This circle is for the color wheel. You can change the colors from here. You can play around Andi. This is really cool. You can increase or decrease the opacity. Andi, if you want, you can also change the human saturation, and that way it will change the colors off the brush. All right. After the color, will we have the sites If you want to increase the size slide up and if you want to decrease the size like don't simple. After that we have float flow is basically how smoothly the world the brush is going to work. If I increase the floor, it's gonna be quite and dense. Well, I think I'll just clear this layer. Okay. If I decrease the floor, it's gonna be quite light, like, very soft. And if I increase the flow, it's gonna be very intense and very saturated. After that, we have smoothing. Morning is how smoothly over a strokes work. So you can just play around with these properties and you can learn more with that. After that, we have this option, which is brushed settings. So you can change to say thank you if you want. We cannot change. If you want. You can change the Blakemore's like you can change too much like and to color bond. You can just play it on all with dollies, shape dynamics. You can also change the size Jeter. Minimum diameter angle, jitter whatever you want to do it. Okay. This is the option to reset. Do it before it set things. So you can see we can play around with the brushes, changed their dynamics, change their properties and work with them. All right. After pixel brushes, we have vector brushes. Sorry. Our life brushes. Life brushes are two kinds of lye pressures. Oneness, watercolor on. The 2nd 1 is on. So watercolor exactly works like we're together and you will see the same options. Here. There is one thing forward to mention and that is the SoCal. If you see the circle, you can move it around. This circle walks differently with each type off brush for pixel brush is you have to double up on this one to select us on. It will be changed, like after a double tap on this, your brush will become an eraser so you can see on the right. Inside, it's written a raise with brush now coming back to our water celebrations on, I'll choose the color you Oh, beautiful shade off, I think. And selective size maximum size Andi will take high floor. And what a flow, I think about 73. I think that is fine. So now you can see when I select a watercolor brush, it starts blending, though. Pick some brush with it, so I hope you can see that, and it takes its own time, like exactly how it up happens on paper. If you have worked with watercolors, you must be aware of how watercolor works on wet on wet technique, and then it will come to a point when it will stop blending. And in this case, this the circle works like water. So when I doubled up on this, it will become pure water. So when I'm using good, you can see pure water here. So now it's working like pure water that it does like I'm just using border my brush and I'm blending the ink and this pink color. Let's take another color and let's see how it works. No, believe you can see this. No, you can see how beautifully it is changing the color from like when the bank and the blue are blending, it's turning toe Beautiful purple. So this is the beauty that we are going to play around with in this class. All right, So one thing I want to mention here is the way we blended watercolor Russia. Brush with the pixel brush here on the same layer. We cannot do the same with the vector brush. I'll be showing you in the next step. All right, so I think we're clear with this. Under watercolor brushes, we have four types of brushes first of watercolor Wrong date, then watercolor wash, soft, wash flat and once splatter. Just try and use all these gunners and see how it works. So I just give you a them off water than herself to wash on. It exactly is the same as it say's. You can change the size and it's really very soft. This is what exactly we're going to use in the project in Scouse. So let's change the color, so see how beautiful it is. All right, so next is flat. It works like a flat brush on. The next one is splatter, so we'll just take the color red and you can see Okay, just clear it off. It works like splatter. And one more thing that I would share here is, let's say I'll just use this and it's kind of blending Next. I can tap on the layer, and we have a dry layer option. Let's just stop on this and let's see what happens. It instantly stops blending the color. That means the color has tried. So this is the magic on watercolor paints in fresco on right, Let's now go to oil colors. I'll clear this layer after watercolor. We have oil beats. So this is These are like, I think six or seven paints. I'm sorry, Brushes seven brushes and I'll show you how they work. So I don't know whether you can see this or not. You can see the texture, I guess, the texture. This is what, exactly how we can get on canvas our paper when we paint with oil, oil paints. Next, I'll take some other color and start using it. So now you can see that they kind of blend with each other how they're blending exactly like the oil paints do on traditional surface. So you can try creating beautiful portrayed or still life on fresco. And you could just try out all these different types off brushes, all that stuff. All right, under that, we have all the same options, color and then size. This is a flow and what this is this is the paint mix. So this is the intensity off mixing off how the pains are gonna mix. So let's just try to increase it. 200. Let's see how it works. And if I decrease it, how it works, You know, I think you could see the difference, and then we have some options here. I'm not going to make any changes to that. So this is how our life brushes were. After that, we have rector brushes. So Rector Russia's first thing pixel brushes and water called the life pressures are pixel based pressures. So the Russians are not going to work exactly what these two types types of brushes like we did before. So if I select rector brush, let's see. I'll just school with basic round again on change. The color don't bring, so you will see what happens here. Fresco created, oh, new layer itself for the vector brush. So in vector brushes we have the same types off some off the brushes, like I think five pressures only, and we have the same thing here. You can change the size you can do the smoothing Jesus moving on, make the changes to the settings on this thing works as any reason again. So if I doubled up this, it's gonna work like any reason like it did in the pics of rushes, and I forward to explain how it works in oil brushes. If you have ah, oil paint, it's just cleared this one from this one, too. On do some oil painting. All right, so we have some oil paint done to you on If I doubled Have on this one. It works like a dry pressure. So now we're done with the brushes. Let's move on to our next section and ritual. Create a color palette for our painting. 6. Color Palette : I learned about the tools on the brushes. Now it's time to work on our project. So first thing first, I will talk about color palette in this class. We are going to create monochromatic, misty forest, something which we can easily create with watercolors, like having such blends or such washes off water watercolor on paper and for that will take some inspiration online. So first of all, what I'm gonna do with I'll go to Pinterest. Andi. Sorry. Um oh, no chromatic artist on Let's see what we get. I'm just looking for nice colors. Let's see. So I think we'll go with some blue. Let's just take this as an inspiration. I'm just taken the snapshot and I'll go back to Fresco, and what I'll do is I'll use this icon to get that for dope in my canvas on a What we don't want is the color toe. Create a color palette. What you can do is either you can just I drop on, take the colors on, get them on your campus, are either you can. What you can do is just go to the color wheel and go to reasons. Make sure the canvas is completely new. So what you have to do is just beauty eye dropper and start digging up the corners from the image. Go to the color veal and tap on plus again I drop her take a little darker shade upon plus Sorry. Plus. Then again, I drop her on picked another shade then tap on. Plus I think 6526 shades would be fine to go Then again, take another doctor Lor and top one plus again Tap on because top on plus And I think one more Yes, Six shades are good to go. All right, We're gonna done with the color we What I can do was I could just go and believe the layer This is how we create a color palette. 7. Painting Background: All right, So now we are ready with a color palette. We have our can was ready. We knew how to use watercolor brushes. Now it's time to move on to our project. So first thing first will create a new layer on. We're going to fill this layer with very random color, which we're not going to use in our project. So I take this purple tone on use a paint bucket tool to fill it on. When we fill it, just select picks up. All right. Next. We're not going to use this layer, so I'm going to just lock it next. I'm going to create another layer on. Now we're going to create the circle under in which we're going to create a painting. So I'm going to select though selection tool and use a lips, and then I'll double tap on this and create a perfect soccer like this, Right? No, As you can see, that this is not exactly in the center. So first thing, what we should do with use any color. I'll use white on fill it with the pain buck and use pixel here. Then using transform tool on dragging it in the center. Done. All right. Now I'll select mosque here on reveal is selected. That is fine. And now, since we have mosque that we have created the mosque, you will see that these options are not visible or active. So all we have to do with we have to slide from left to right like this so we can get on what they're gonna brushes active now, going to the watercolor brushes on going toward the color war soft, selecting the lighter shade off our palette. I'm going to start with my strokes for the strokes. What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna just simply and gently. I think those size is quite small. So I'm gonna just increase the size very gently. At this point, you can barely see what I'm doing on the screen. I think because the color is very light, But later, weaken signed out the results. So don't worry. Has simple Is that so? At this point, nothing is visible. I know that is fine. All right. So we're going to create a new layer with the next color. All you have to do with create a new layer. Now we need exact same circle at the exact same position with the same masking thing. All you have to do with Goto this layer go back to the mosque, Stop on that and copy mask. Go to the new layer. Stop and based mask hit done. And we have the same mass care now, going from left to right again selecting our brush. I'll choose the same brush, but I'll Jews, the doctor don't know and do some more strokes Have to be very gentle with this. Don't just much your brush on the canvas. It's gonna be very Oh, rough in that case so you can see that I left a little part on the top for the light shape . And then I started with the darker shade, almost like 20% down on the circle. And same thing we're going to do now. We're done with the second layer. Go back, create a new layer. Can't be the mask. Stop paste mask Done. Now select for the doc. Don't and then I'll start with Sorry. Oh, this is cool going to this one and selecting the watercolor brush and making the strokes in this direction. This time you can also create paint mountains in this. It was similar were you that I'm doing right now in this, Like I'm showing you that I'm creating Go each layer on separate layers. You can do the same thing on one layer for the background. That is your choice. But I would recommend doing it on separate layers and the same thing Going back. Copy mask plus based, most done slight speaking. Go water. Gonna brush Taking for the doctor and starting with dark strokes going back, create a new layer copy mask and then based mask Done slide select watercolor brush on, Then select the stock color and then start. I think now you can see how it's coming up together. And another flare called the musk based mask Done Slide order color brush earlier on last, just which I'm going to make a very small part off what we wanted to the very dog and the end. So maybe we'll add more being tail. But for now, I leave it like that. So we are pretty much done with this 8. Pine Trees and birds: Okay, so next thing is, we want to create the pine trees. So before creating pine trees in this painting, I'll show you how toe paint your pine trees by ourselves. Also, if you are not very comfortable in our, you know, painting the pine trees, I have created some 40 shall brushes, which you can download on import here, using the pixel brushes and going to this option on used those as temp rushes for your pine trees. But I would recommend painting your own for the pine trees. I just give you a demo, creating a new layer for the pine trees I'm going to use under pics of rushes sketching, and I'm going to use pencil simple pencil. I'm just giving a demo first, and then I'll create the pine tree for the class on the zoom in a little bit for the pine trees. What you can do with, just create a straight line and simply just make sure the site is not too high. Simply scribble like this. The shape off the pine trees mostly like something a cone, something like this. Or maybe some trees have large, very tall bark on very less branches and they end up somewhere in the middle on some are from top to bottom. They're covered with the branches so you can create very relations off trying trees like that. So simply going like this, I don't know whether you can see the for not. This is a very fun exercise if you want to. You don't have precise with anything. So this is very cool. And we are not worrying much about the lower part of the trees because ultimately we're going to blend this portion with water. So as long as you can create something like this, are maybe something up to this, you can see that hold roughly. I'm doing it. I'm not really worried about my strokes. Here you've been created tree like this. The line has to be straight on a one more way off. Creating a pine tree is by keeping the angle off, though branches upwards. Something at this. You can even cover one side forest and then go to the second sign next. Something like this. You know, I've created very rough versions off the pine trees, but I think you got the idea how it works. So I'm going to delete this later. I'm not going to use it. And second thing I wanna show you is how to make bards. So I'm going to use catching brush. Only for one way is those very simple. But like you have to just go from left to right down and then up like this. Very simple. Another way is opposite something like this. I'm not too good with that. But you can. You can play around on making this part a little take or something like this. Yeah, on even like this, As if the board is at an angle. Something like this. Right? I'm going to just delete this layer. And next, we're going to create pine trees, and we'll start from the like, this shade of pine trees, which are far Oh, of a and then will come forward with the doctor. Don't exactly like we did with the backgrounds 9. Final: so we'll create a new layer. I would copy the mosque and based mask. The reason why we are doing masking off for pine trees is because we're going to make the fine trees on the edges. So if you look at the composition here, this area looks like it's complete sky. It's not like mountains or something like that. So I think we should start the pine trees here and then some. Maybe here and the next layer can come here. Andi, the final layer has to be here something. All right, so we'll start with the light of sheet on and using the pixel brush sketching brush only, and he's in the same size, presuming it a little bit and stopped you as a told you earlier. You don't have to be very, very precise there. You can just go very fast with your strokes on. We're not too much worried about the lower portion because we're going toe. Blend it. The next tree will be somewhere here, and one tree can come over you. I think I'll make one more little taller than this one and very close, quite close toe as compared to all the trees which wouldn't give it, though. Nice, natural. Look. So now we're done with the trees layer if you want. You can copy this on, paste it for the other side. But I'm not going to do that. All right, So now it's time to blend this portion, as of it does hidden in the mist for that what you have to do with goto watercolor brush. Select a brush and double tap on this so that we have fewer water on. Just make sure the flow has to be somewhere in the middle. Not too high on size. Size has to be wrong. 60. Let's see how it works and very gently. Just try to blend us. I think the flu is quite high here, so I'll just undo this on again. Lowered the floor. Yeah, this looks nice. So very gently. You don't have to press your pencil or you don't have to, you know, make harsh strokes. You just have to very gently soft in these edges like this, especially on this outer area. Be very, very gentle. No, I'm done. But you can see some hard edge you tow. Avoid that or toe get. That's often all you have to do is call to Raisel on. Make sure the floors less around 30 or 20 on size is also less. But it's just very softly. I think we need to increase the size a bit on Don't. He was a hard, wrong razor. Just use some soft. So I love you. Soft ground capacity and very gently. I'll just soft in these edges. But there is looks good, right? So we're going toe. Repeat the same step with the with a new layer, or you can make the trees on the same layer. You don't have to go for their and create new layers for the trees, so we're not going to create any more layers. Just dig the doctor shape. No, I'll take the shade on. Take your pencil again, so seem. And this time I'm going to start quite close to the edge here and just try to get the shade a little darker than the bathroom. Every time for the trees, right? Another one very close to this one, the growing little down. Then I'll create one tree, which is going to be a little far, but going to be there dot nothing. I'll leave it like that only just to give it a variation and one more small one. Once we're done with this will use water selecting the water, gonna brush using water, taking a small size, a little flow and just trying to blend the lower portions off the trees and will goto raisel on a make sure you have soft razor selector and just gently it is the hard edges. Just try toe. Raise the lower portions of that. It looks like the mist is coming up and the trees are going to be hidden in the missed. Next will take another shade and start with our trees again. On this time I'm just doing it upwards, making one more. I feel like the histories look far beautiful then the others Yeah, I think one more here it's looking beautiful. All right, so the same thing using more door and then starting pending using a razor again, doing the work moving harsh enters and now coming to the last layer with the darker shade off trees on for the Spartan. Where are going to use that blending? Because this is going to be the darkest one, So we can just go ahead and create these trees. And another thing that I want to add here is just going to the top most background layer. I'm going to use this color on going to use water Horta color using the wrong detail rush so that we can have a bit of darkness like this. All right, so the painting is complete. The last thing that we are left with is boards. I don't need a new layer for that. I can go with the trees layer and use the sketch pencil brush and start with the lightest food so that it gives a feel That board is far in the woods somewhere there, then taking a darker shade. So there you then taking another for the docker shade. - All right, so we are done with the painting. Now we can just simply go ahead and leave this layer because we don't want it on. One thing you can also do is if you want to create a circular, are round circle around so you can just go ahead and create one more layer. Andi, what do you have to do is create a circle using this two will again using this and just try to create a circle a little larger than this one and fill it up with the doctor. Let's fill it up and using the transform tool doubled up and just creating a the select and we're done. So we're done with the painting. Now it's time to share. You can just publish export export as you can share it as a G pack or even PSD if you want to export and I'll just save it in my library. Open the library and it's here. And this is how we can create beautiful misty watercolor painting and adobe fresco. I can't wait to see your project.
