Transcripts

1. Introduction: Do you want to achieve the look and feel of oil painting, but without the mass of its outrage at as exactly what you need for the ads. There is beautifully oil painting brushes that mimic the texture of actual oil painting. In this class, I will show you all the basics of outrage. I will go deeper into the old brushes. For this, we will be painting three different projects, all flowers from simple to more complicated. At the end of the class, you'll be able to paint anything you want with your own brushes. This app is really cool and it works well on iOS and Android as well. So this class is for all levels, I will be explaining everything in detail. So join me in class and let's have fun together. See you there. 2. Your project: Your project will be to make flowers with the old painting brush in our great app. So I will show three different paintings in the class from simple to more tricky. And this is a kind of thing you can achieve with a lot of texture because this is the beauty of this app. You can have a lot of texture like real traditional oil painting, like this or that, or that, or this one which will be the first one we will be doing. It's the easiest one. So if you just do one project, let's do this one. Because you will get the feel of the calibration. You will get enough information to do your own painting after that. So let's move to the basics of our rage before we dive in the painting brush. 3. ArtRage basics - setting canvas: First of all, we want to download our rage, and it works both on iOS and Android. I'm using an iPad, so I'm opening the App Store. Search and you will type up rage V2, which is last version of the mobile app. Our courage comes on desktop as well, but it's a complete different software, so to speak. We will be working on the mobile one. So you find the range VTA mobile painting. Obviously I have it already, so I will open it. And this is how it looks. So we will discuss about everything we have on screen before going in detail and having our painting down. So first of all, you have a bar down here, and the middle is the logo of the art rage. And you have a new menu opening so I can save my painting, save it under another name, create a new painting. This is what we will be doing, and I don't save the one I have here. It's very cool. You can give it a name already. And let's call it test, right? You can create different groups to have your paintings together, like folders, for example. So I will leave it in the category group. And you have here show of y will give your painting. So this one will be challenging when I will be challenging those settings. So first is the size. You have here of arrow. If you open it, you have grouped basic and you have a little wrench here, reinstall default item if it's missing, I don't know. Sometimes for space purposes, I guess are courageous removing some things he had downloaded before, but it's just typing here and tap on 3M's telling and good work. So you have basic sizes that are already made for you. I will take a square, which is a small one by the way. Or you can take a large square and it's twice the size. It depends, maybe on your iPad size, your memory size. So let's make some tries. And first I will take the regular square. So you can have presets. And preset is the kind of substrate you are painting on. So you have different One papers, okay? Because I am on paper texture, reinstall default. And here I can get all the different things. So Canvas for example, canvas to, and you have here an example of what it will give. Canvas 3 is more diagonal. Course paper. Looks a bit like watercolor paper. This one is more blurry. Find papers. So the name says it. Hatching is really textured. The thing is you need to select this texture before painting. You won't be able to change it after. So for this first exercise, I will take a fine paper because I don't want to be bothered by the texture of the paper. And so the rest of it we will play with it. The scalar is more visible if I take a Canvas, sorry, or large, is the weaving of the canvas, so to speak. So I can have it very small or a bit larger. Also, the depth is how heavy is the Canvas? So if I have it very down, it's very visible. And here it's less visible. So really, as long as you are moving the sliders, you have a narrower view was a better mark here to show you what it will give. I think I will take a small Candace. You can also select the color of Canvas. And for now, I think I will take white so we are not bothered by the color. You can also add metallic color in the background and the opacity of the background as well. I leave it at 100% I want. And let's type on down. So it's creating a square for me. Did you see there were the top here because it's a square and so you never know where is the top of it. Okay, So you can resize and large, very intuitive, I would say. So let's go on 100%. So we have the full size of it. 4. ArtRage basics - painting tools: And I will check briefly all the tools you have on the left here. So this one is to clone something so I can't use it for now because I have nothing to clone. This one is to fill everything with a color. So you select the color here, moving the slider. And here you can play was amount of white or black, cetera. And you have the corner here was the sample of the color. And this metallic part is to add more metal to our color. We play with this later, so I have my pot selected. I will use my pencil. And this is basically filling everything. That's it. So nothing really fancy here. Okay? You're just filling the color. So let's fill that with white. Okay. This one is to pick up a color, seize up later while it's an eraser. This is to add a bit of sparkling here and there. And the thing is, if you are used to Procreate, you will want to tap with two fingers and no, this is the undo button. This is a sprayer. So let's get a vivid color. If you want to tweak a tool, you have here. Something very interesting and you can move everything. So I'm not going to detail each and every tool because this is aimed to be oil painting on this specific class. But you are welcome to play with your own version. Just to show you the different tools. This one is kind of a short, This one is felt. This one is really strong. This one is just a pencil. This one is a tube. Scilab change my color. And this one is fun because it's giving a really heavy texture. Like if you were pressing the tube on the paper straight and you'll see it's really heavy. This one is a roller and you can really get a nice effect. This one is the palette knife and we will be playing with it later. But I show you, and this one is to make just air spray. This one is watercolor. And I think I'm making another class with watercolor. And this one is oil painting. Okay? So this is the one we will be using. All right, so next say important as this Layers button. So it's quite intuitive. If I tap on the eye, it will disappear because it's hidden. Okay, open this arrow and I have some stuff to work on the layer. So I can make shadow, cut out, glow in a low stroke, etc. I can change the blend mode was a lot of things. I can let this, as it is actually transform layer is a bit limited. You can rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. You can flip vertical, flip horizontal. And you can also lock the object, stretch it, etcetera, etcetera. But it's not one of the main features in our rage. I would say I am rarely, if not ever using it. What else I have clear layer. So tap on this and everything is disappearing. So tap on Undo and it's back. Transform layer. This is what we just saw. So what I can do is move this, scale it down. Scale it so it's time. I can copy the layer to my clipboard. And this is very convenient if you want to work in our rage and then transfer the layer to another software like Procreate, for example. You can't replicate and export it. And if you want to export, you can choose between PNG and JPEG. It's really, really intuitive, I would say. And of course, capacity. Great, Let's fill this IT and add another layer. And by default, it will place it on top of the previous one. But if you want to move the layers, you have to tap on this little one and places on top and down. And that's it. This one is for ease or tracing all loading an image. So if you want to trace, you can tap on this and load image. And you can select either a file, take photo or take something from your photo library. So let's say I will import a photo. So you see the opacity is here. And by default this is a separate layer. So I can go on this layer. I'm using my oil paint and I'm just drawing something. Nevermind what just to show you. And if I go here and remove the tracing, I have my drawing that is ready to use. But if you don't want to trace, you can use the reference here. Let's add an image that at the same image. And here you have your image right here. And you can have it the same size and row from it. And if you want to hide this, you go there and you hide it. Quite convenient. Ready? This one is you add a sample of color. Let's say this one. I want to keep this being because this specific color, I can tap on this little arrow with a square and it will add the color in my symbols library. If I tap on plus, when I'm inside, it's the same. And then you can add a sample, edit clear, sort them. Wherever I will clear them. I'm barely using it because there is a way to take a color back. Let's say I have a bunch of colors. And I want to take like a color. I will use my pencil and hold long. This is giving circle of the color. So I can take it back. Let's undo this or just clear the layer. That's fine. Now let's move to the detail of the old painting brushes. 5. ArtRage basics - oil painting brushes: So for oil painting, I'm keeping my canvas texture. This is the same folder that I used before, the same canvas. I have selected the oil painting brush, and you can see this is the one selected because it here. See if I tap on it, it changes. And let's go to the settings. So let's rains towel the default items. And I have a list of ready-made brushes, so let's try them and sign the one that suits your style. I will use a blue because why not? And this one is really light. It's trying to mimic the traditional oil painting though. Let's say that for this one you have a lot of thinner in the brush. And you can see that when you are looking at the settings. So first setting is the size of the brush. Second is a pressure, meaning or hard. You have to press on your stylus to get an effect. And senior, you can say that here center or at the maximum, loading is the amount of paint in the brush. Depth is how thick as your paint gloss, how shiny is it? Instead dry, so is it drying just when you change your color, you are going for another fresh color. Auto clean. Is it cleaning between two colors? Square head, so to speak, you know what I mean? Aspects is here. Or you see it. Is it very pointy? Is it very wide? Rotation is a texture turning when you are painting and stiffness as if you were using a synthetic or a very hard brush. Okay, and meanwhile, we are talking. There is this little reminder that you have to save. There is no autosave here. You have to type on Save. And it will remind you from time to time. Okay, so let's go to the next one, which is dry clumps. And you see the settings are quite different from the previous one. There is no thinner in it. There is a little loading, meaning the brush will be quite dry. It's very glossy and the rest is quite the same. So you see it's very dry. It's like you have a little paint on your brush. And I will change the color and go on top of the previous one. And the two colors are very separate to each other. It's because I have auto clean, so let's remove auto clean. And as soon as you move something, you are leaving the preset because you change date. And now it's not much different because there is so little paint in it. It's not really merging. K. Let's move to another one. Dry varnished. By saying the title says everything. This one is really, really glossy. So I'm doing some colors next to each other because I want to play with a knife after that. So it's instead write an auto clean, Let's remove instead dry. And you see this is beginning to merge with the color below. On top of the yellow. It's getting lighter and if I remove or to clean and I change the color, my color is merging very well with the rest of it. And it still have the blue inside before getting to the pure green, I have two, so to speak, clean my brush. And eventually I will become to the green here. Okay. So let's undo that. It's dirty anyway. Next one is everlasting. If there is a bit of a thinner, it's loaded at maximum. So this one, as the title says, will never stop. Being filled with paint. Almost impossible in real life. Normal round. Okay. Normal square the same but you have the square head that is tied. My favorite thick plus square, sin and dry tiny tubes and clean brush. So I let you play with it because it will be really tedious to show you everything. I will use a thick glass square. There is a bit of loading, no sinner, no depth a glass or to clean and square head. And if I press hard, I have a lot of texture in my brush. Okay, on it's really merging with the color below. So I like that. But my brush stay clean. You see it's through yellow. If I go on top, it's mixing with the color below. So you can achieve very nice effect. But if I go outside is perfectly and I love that. So let's say we will be using the thick glass square during the class. But you are welcome to tweak anything you like. And maybe we will as long as we are painting. Okay, so let's move to the palette knife. 6. ArtRage basics - palette knife: So I'm still keeping my layer. I have selected the palette knife. Let's see what we have here. We have a turn of things with different effects. And here it's really a matter of style. Sometimes I almost not use the palette knife. I just leave the brushstrokes are they are because this is a style I like. Sometimes it's good to sultan some transitions between color and you have different ways to do that. I like the heart outs merge. Let's find a place here. And this is a touch rejection is on. It's quite annoying, but that's the way it is and it reminds me to save. Okay? There is less settings on the palette knife. You have basically is the size of it. The type. Are you using the are you using the full knife? Are you using just the edge? Are you rounding? Are you straight? It's just what it is wet, meaning there are a lot of thinner nets. And you can also adjust the pressure. How hard are you pressing with your knife and the loading? Because you can either just use the existing paint or have a bit of paint on your knife and also auto clean. So let's go here. You see very large. I can lower the size and just integrate some colors. Or I can add paint on it. Let's take a color. And now I am adding really a lot of paint to my mix. So it makes very cool textures. And the software knows that below the blue there is pink and it will lift up a bit of the pink below. Really. It's very well done. You can have something so cool with the textures. So I think it would be good that you play a bit with different settings, presets in our airbrush and in the pike knife. So you have a large and just to get the feel of it, it's not necessary that you decide exactly what you like so far because maybe it's a bit too early and we will be painting. And then as long as we are painting, you can tell what works best for you, for your style, for what you like, for what you want to achieve. Okay, so let's move to the painting by itself. 7. Tulip - setup: Now it's time to make our first drawing. You can, of course, use your personal Saltillo because we all have flowers in one day or another at home. But in case you don't have it, I have gathered for you copyright free images in a Pinterest board and you'll find the link in the description. And you have different styles of flowers. So I'll let you scroll in the board and see which one you like. I think it could be interesting too. Begin with something simple and increase the difficulty for the next painting. So maybe a simple flower just to get the feel of the oil painting brushes and play with the textures. Because I feel that when you want to try something, it's better if you have something to draw than just making simple samples. So it's better if we have an image. So you tap on the image and it will open the full size image in unsplash.com and hold long and add to photos. And that's it. Okay, so now let's go to your camera roll. And we will edit this image because it's very large. And I needed only on a square format, so it's better if I crop it right now, it will be easier to handle in Arc rage. So edit crop. And here you have the format to tap on it and select square. And this way it will do this for you. Tap Done, and that's it. So now let's open our rage, retain and create a new painting. So I will work on the square format and the background in the reference image. It's pink. You can take it pink or blue. I think as the flowers pink. Also, it's better if we have a contrasting color and blue is always a good match for flowers. So you're quite safe to go with a blue one. I'm using a texture which is Canvas. One. I don't touch anything is a scale 22 percent the depth 27. And let's start on John. Right? And now we will import the reference image. I won't trace, I will just place it here because it's a very simple drawing. So tap on references plus import from Library and select your flower. And now I can enlarge it to have quite the same size as my canvas. Let's get the oil brush. And as a preset, I will use that thick glass square. Why is that? Because I like to have a really large beginning of the brush mark. Just like if you would be using a flat brush in real life, like this. If you like to use round brushes, then you will use the sig glass regular one, which is appoint a tip to the brush, so to speak. Okay, so for now I won't touch anything. I just want to get the feel of this brush and then maybe we will be tweaking a bit the things. So first thing is make a rough drawing of the overall shape. And this is where it's interesting to have the same size for both because your eye won't be confused. If your reference is this size and your drawings is size, it can be quite difficult to achieve the same size. Okay, so very simple one and it's not even very problem. If you are not accurate, that's really not match. Any way I will cover this drawing. So for this one I want to work with one single layer. Just the same layer for the drawing and painting because in real life. Obviously terrorist, just one layer, even if we can cover and layer paint. But let's say for this exercise, let's go just for one layer and we'll see after or the next drawing to add more layers. Okay, so no big deal if there is a problem, you can either use the eraser. And I think I will erase my stem. It's not in the workplace. And that would be a good idea to get a green. So now let's fill this. So regarding selecting colors, you have different ways to do that. Either you will use your stylus and tap on the image. And you see my color is here. This is picking the color in the reference image. It's interesting when you're not used to selecting colors. And it can also be a good basis. But maybe you can also tweak your color here directly and selected. Actually, I'm using a mix of both method. I am just using the color picker towards the dark part, but I feel it's too dark, so I will lighten it a bit. And now regarding the style of painting, I will be using very few brush strokes. What I want in this drawing is just to get used to the brush, to the app because it's very different than other apps. So I won't be detailing too much. And for this, I want to increase the size of my brush. For that, you will tap on the 100% here. It will open a tool size and you can go as way up as you want and we'll go 500%. And this is giving me a really large brush stroke. Of course, I'm pressing very hard. If I'm pressing light, it's way smaller. So don't forget to save on your reminds you. And let's see if the texture is what we want. I feel this could be a bit more textured because I want to see the texture, the forces. I will tweak the brush. So open the ranch and I will increase the depth. Let's say 15 percent to see that, oh, change the color and gosh. Is it how is it doing? My me more than 15? Basically here it's your tastes. You like to see a lot of texture or not. Let's say for a t percent, yes. For the beginning to be quite good. Let's go to 50, 60. Let's go and increase a bit. Glass as well. Yeah, I like that. It's quite heavy. Yeah, you can see that if I add another color inside. So now I can see the texture of the URL. This is what I like. Okay? So this is happening when you tap with your finger and this is quite annoying. So what you can do is open the app for age logo, go to preference and you can pattern rejection. I also reject touch impact. Yeah, and now it doesn't do it. 8. Tulip - painting: Let's darken this a bit. But it's annoying because whenever your palm is touching it will tell you that palm rejection is on. Okay. So this is details are ready, I want to feel first. So makes some variation in the color. So I can pick up again the color I had before. While it's quite annoying to see this, this little pop up all the time, but it means that every time it's popping out, I would have had a spot on my drawing. So actually it's called so as you are painting during the video and that you don't get the same thing, just check out here. Are you exactly the same way? Institute DRI is off, autoclaving is on and square hat is on. Okay. So I think I can go back to our regular size now. Let's go back to 100% because it's a big one is field. And the more you press, the more you'll get heavy coat of paint, giving a bit of texture. Like the way the flower is growing. And this is mixing with the paint and rust below That thing here it's kind of a grayish pink. This is very interesting to pick up colors and see how you would have picked it on the color wheel. Are you accurate in your picking or not? So try to have your brushstrokes. The way you see the veins in the flower, you see this is really making a nice curve. There is a greenish something here. Yeah. So if you want to be really white without mixing, just flick and stay right on. And now I'm not mixing with what is below. But I think here I will need something to make the texture. Then little part here. And I will make a background, so I don't mind if I see something here. We'll cover it with the background anyway. So go back to removing Institute DRI. This is a very bright one bit. Or reddish. So if you vary the pressure, you will vary the width of your brush stroke. Okay, I don't want this to be mixed so I remove paints to dry. Just adding a bit of already. Go back to dry. Again. There's more going this way. And you see a Save. You have a lot of texture here. This is interesting really. So having just one layer, it forces you to really take advantage of the mixing of the paint. So whenever you have a color, you want to be really clean out of the others and not mixing. You go and put down Institute DRI to you. If you are used to procreate, it's quite confusing at first because you want to double-tap. But when you double-tap, what it does is just centering full size. So you have to use the underwear. Okay. Let's work a bit on the stem and tweak can mix a texture a bit later. So what about this ten creatinine? Kind of too dark and a bit lighter on the edge. 9. Tulip - background and textures: And for the background may be more whitish. Something increases the size 300 percent. Because I want to have a dynamic background. So move it so you don't get bothered by the palette. It's really heavy. There is a lot of texture. This is what I wanted. And that's okay if you are picking up a bit of the paint of the flower, just like we would do in regular olive oil painting. Okay. Let's be a bit too heavy in my background, so I will lower the depth, lower the glass 33 something, and tweak the color. Let's get the palette knife and select the blend, our wet blender. And see more large. Don't like that either. In the background, just to count down a bit. So background. And you have this nice effects, like it's bleeding in the background. And would like to try Which one are out smudge. This one is cool. It's more. It will help me to define more TSH, but can be blurry. And push a bit so white and the flower will increase my likeness later. I think the best would be to go on top of my background again with my painting, but with less depth and tweak bits for a light blue. Just to add some interest to the background. Yeah, we'll add some green here to figure out a bit. Some leaves. And now maybe you want to remove the square head so you can go something a bit more point to remove. Makes sense to dry. Yeah. Nice. To have this read less defined because it's to digital for me. Okay? So I think it's not bad. Okay, So it will help you to really feel the brush painting. Let's add a bit of white here. Go back to 100. Make sure this is, it's too dry. It's a whitish. Be cool. So I'm leaning to the blue, turquoise, blue bit more white. And add a bit of a knife. And this one, get the baby tiny frost. Let's see how it goes. Now. That sounds something a bit more straight. So once you know your this is the one it's hard out smear. So I can push it just like on the image to show how the light is hitting the flower. So once you get used to the app, you will have your flow for working. So it's different from the imagine that's happy because I'm not a photocopy. And this is my interpretation of this image. And now that you have finished your image, you can export it. For this, you will tap on the logo in the middle. Save your painting and export image so you can choose between three different wines. This one is a proprietary, proprietary. My God. This is the one from outrage or a PNG or JPEG, whatever you like. P&g has a wider size, it's six megabytes, and JPEG is only 638 kilobytes. So it's really ten times more light. And to share on social media, really it good. And also what you can do is have a look at your gallery. So tap on view gallery and you have your paintings. And then you can open, tap on one. You can either delete it, rename it, because so far I don't have a name, It's just untitled. Rotate, duplicate or delete again or share again, or open it. And there are new are back in your dashboard to work on it. So this is very intuitive. I think there is nothing much more to know about it. Okay, so novel x1, X1 10. Tulip bouquet - setup and drawing: For this second painting, I'm still going with two leaves, but this time I will go with bouquet. And I want to download this one. So let's go here. Add to photos and same here. I want to tweak it. So edit crop square. I don't know why I want to work with Square today. Maybe enlarge this a bit. And also I want to work a bit on the light because it's a bit dark around here, so I will tweak a bit. So go to the button here on top. And let's work on exposure. Let's go at 50. Brilliance. No. Let's push the highlights as well. Anyway, I'm tweaking it and I will leave you the tweaked photo and the original photo. So if you want to work on one of it, yeah, I think it's great, even if I will add more light here. So go back to outrage. Save your painting. Anyway, if you try to create a new painting without saving forest, it will prompt you, do you want to save? So create a new painting and I will take out the exact same setup than before. Okay, let's go. And my reference. Now for a challenge, just to show you another way, I will trace and load image in tracing. And it will automatically give it the same size than your canvas. So this is why it's important if you have a square canvas to have a square reference photo. So what you can do is either tracer drawing or you can paint directly on top of age anyway, you have a blank canvas. This is a separate layer for the reference image. Let me show you this. If I take any color and make a line, then I hide my tracing enraged. And I still have this on my layer. Okay? So depending on how you want to work, maybe it's good to make a tracing. I don't know. It's how you work. How is your workflow? I don't know. I will maybe make a light tracing and very organic. Actually. This is interesting, just to know a bit more your image and understand who's popping in front of who was behind, who's in front? I know that some of you may object to tracing thinking that it's cheating. I personally don't have any problem with tracing when what I'm interested in is not to drawing, but the color. So if you want to draw Be my guest. Class is about oil painting, not trawling. Ok, we'll simplify a bit because there is a bunch of lines here. It will be too much. So important information is the level of the water and then the stems that are going into the water. All right. And so a guy named more than that, that's enough. Okay? And here if you look at your reference image, you can see that you have different layers of flowers. This one is very much in the background, and this one is in the foreground. And that will be interesting to make several layers as well here. So let's make, I don't know, four maybe. And I will place my drawing on top of everything. And actually I will be painting under my tracing layer and I won't be using my layer inside the final painting. So let's reorder this, tap on this little icon and place it on top. And now it's done. And if this is too important, I can tap on the arrow and lower the transparency, the opacity. And this way, I think my drawing won't be in the middle but still visible. Let's begin with what is the most far away from the viewer? The leaves in the very background, and I want to make sure they are a bit blurry. 11. Tulip bouquet - painting: Okay, so let's grab a green. Let's see how we are sets. So here I will use presets of the class with a fine tip on the edge, meaning this kind of brush. And I will leave the ready-made settings so not touching the depth. And I will give you another tip to add depth at the very end to see the texture. Now for now, Let's go with this. And this is why I kept the point edge, its form making leaves, it's really easier. So the leaf next to it as two colors, one light and one dark. And I want to tweak a bit. The color, not using the same. This is supposed to be our edge. Okay? We'll do it as it lighter. I actually think it's a bit more desaturated. It's important that you vary the color inside and leave. Just don't keep always the same color. So push a bit to the yellow. Should be bit darker maybe. And this one, I will place it on the above layer to make sure you can tell it's really different leaves. I need to make this flower. And I'm not married to the image. Of course, I can still make some change I want. And don't forget, we will work on the texture with a palette knife. I feel it's a bit too large, so don't forget to change your tool. And now we will blur this a bit. So I will blur with Pi. And you can take the first one which is blurred frosting and see if you like the way it does. I don't. So I will use instant blur and it's a bit too blurry. So remember that you can still tweak. I will lower a bit softness and a bit the pressure. Yeah, that's better. Just what I wanted a bit of blurriness just to show this is in the background, but not too much. Very important to play on hard edges and soft edges. On top of that and see which one is going in which layer. First, I want to be sure of my values and we see volume. Yeah, this one was a bit too early. So let's add a layer between both because this leaf and this flower should be here. And try not to be too. How could I say that? Too literal, too descriptive, because it's more of the feeding our you see than the accurate flowers. Ready? If you are too descriptive, it will be hyper realism. And this is not what I want here. And remember, you can vary the pressure on your pencil to have different widths. And did you notice this ten is quite purplish population. So this one should be on the territory. This is a way to really show the difference. So my only concern is, do you see a trillion? That's all rest. I'm okay with it. If it's not really accurate, potently call exact. I don't care really. So I'm trying to undo as little as possible because you can't steal color, a mistake anyway, so to speak. Yeah, I know it's quite annoying this popup, but you know why? Alright, so now I think he will speed up the process because it's always the same anyway. 12. Tulip bouquet - textures: I've made all the leaves and I think it's enough, I could add more, but it will be messy. You won't be able to understand everything. So maybe just a bit more here. And that's it. And let's make the vase. And transparencies are always very difficult to make. Truly, I think, a little bit more stuff in the background so as to hide the backside of the phase. So you have to decide what will be the color of the background before painting the phase because it's reflecting in the glass. So if you want to leave it blue, there will be blue grayish reflection. So it's time to decide. Let's hide this for a while. Actually, I think I will leave the background just as it is and I won't paint on top of it. Just a matter of style. Maybe I will just keep it the way it is. So I will select a color of the background and observe the reference image. Rarely. You'll see. The background is white, gray, white. So the phase is reflecting almost only the leaves, the green and the white of the background. So let's consider this. Take the blue, grayish a bit, the blue of the background, and place a layer on top of everything. So you're sure as you make a mistake, it's not a big deal. Dark and a bit more. Actually, some parts are really dark and some are a bit lighter. But it's a bit more. Let's show that we see a bit of the green reflection. Here. I'm always white. Just looking at this and thinking that we see the leaves just behind the benefits a bit darker. Let's do that. Select the color of the leaf elevate of this and the glass. Even some tiny amounts of color to be too patchy. Let's see with arrest. And here in the class, it's really reflecting something quite light. Things the stems are lighter inside of the water. Show the edge of the water, removes the drawing and see how it goes. I likely suggestion after water actually. Now, do we need to use a palette knife? I think for this one, I won't be using it. Maybe I will add more darkness on this one to get more volume. So now it's a game to find. Where is the leaf you are trying to paint? This one is maybe a beta. Beta to live with them. The more is it. I'm always looking for a holdouts. This is not good layer. This is why I'm trying to merge. Lower widths. So much more blurriness on this one. Where is it Here? Let's get the blur instance blurrier. Just a bit. To show that gets in the background. What I want to do is add a layer of texture. So let's create a new layer, place it under every thing. And on this one, I will take sigma square, increases the depth. At 7070, increases the size. Let's go for 800. And what I want do is I want to mimic while you are painting on a canvas, you are placing the layer of Jesu and the JSR was giving texture to everything. So I will use the color of the background. And I want to make some large brush strokes. So I'm okay, I'm just giving texture or I'm not adding any color because this is the color of the background. Let's go reach 100. No, it's limited to 500. Actually. Reduce the size and place very large brush strokes and you have a texture. Now, when I think that's enough to give it a bit more interest to this one. So don't forget to save your painting. And let's move to the last one, which is a bit more tricky, I would say. 13. Colorful bouquet - setup and painting: So for the third and final painting, I will use this one. I think it's gorgeous. It's a lot of calories. It's a bit messy. But let's see if we can do it. So there's two photos. Bit something I want to tweak as usual, so edit this one a bit of the vase, but maybe not too much flowers. It's not square. Maybe it's easier if I ask it to do it square. So the challenge here is to show the variety of colors, but not too messy because it will be over crowded. There is a bunch of strange flowers here. Let's see how we do that. So go back to our rage. Save your current painting if you need to and create a new painting. Let's get always the same setup, or shall we challenge the count bass? Yeah, maybe canvas number two is cool. And you can increase the size here, so I'm tweaking a bit depth, it's 42% and 29 percent. I work in my blue because my notch down. And now let's place a reference image. This is quite messy. I don't want to trace this time. I just want to grab or that would be a bit. It's still at 50, 100 percent. So let's go for 100. Basically just the main shapes. I'm using, the color of the flower as well. Because I will go just for one layer here. Doesn't really matter if you are still on my preset. So let's go to C plus n increases at 50 percent. Very messy. This is a drawing that is really messy. Okay. Will do and I will place a lot of light here shortly. So it's not exactly the drawing of the reference image, but okay, so here it would be interesting to feel shamed by its shape. So let's begin with this edge. I'm really now I want to suggest the flowers. And that's okay if you see a bit of the background. I don't know how to call this flowers, but they are cool. This is more the way I would paint on traditional canvas and add it into the background. I want to maybe use a bit of life like the RLabs match. Just to have something more septal inter background. A bit too patchy. And cats. And forget to go back to the painting brush. So roses are usually kind of circles of petals. So I want to suggest that if you want to make sure your white is popping out, just don't forget to remove Institute DRI and decrease the size to have a better view on what you are doing. So I hope you are enjoying this app, which is really cool. Once you get the hang of it. This colorized seeds bit more pinkish. And decide how much of the background you want to see through the I'm leaving this one on purpose. Remove hands to dry because otherwise it won't be merging. Uninsured. My fixed shape of this flower with the background later. Yeah, I think it requires some smudging stone in good, too vivid because it seems a shadow anyway. So let's tweak the color. Dark leaves here. Just to add some interest. And maybe remove the Institute DRI to make sure I can see the different petals. So this is turning and turning and going a bit more. And remember you don't have to feel everything. 14. Colorful bouquet - painting and finishing: Okay. So too dark. So don't bother making specific shape. Just going a bit randomly. Make sure I add a bit of darkness. So the puppy is really poppy, sorry, it's a daisy. I guess you can tell what it is. So I'm still on, dry on easier for the rows is and move it. So you don't have the pellets right in the middle. Let's remove dry now. Alright, so you're supposed to understand really what's going on here and it's a mess. And that's okay. Now begins to dry because I want to make sure I rarely see tonight. Now, remove it. Right scope bit darker here. And there is the leaves, the stems, sorry, showing here. So let's grab this and vary the colors. And some lines in the background. Wanna go large, 300. Increase the darkness when you are coming this way. Fixing the edge of the flower. Save that, and have a look of everything and see how do you like. It's a bit of hard at smudge would be cool. Just to blur the background. Here, it's not supposed to be so defined. Same here I want to something a bit more dynamic. Not everywhere though. Just on the outside of it. See that I have just placed the pellet minimum size. So it's not in your way. I should have done that before, but it was too involved in painting. Okay. So I don't want to cover everything and to blur everything. I think I like it this way. There are some nice textures. And as a reminder, we were our own depth and loss at 52%. Yeah, so I think you have enough information to be able to paint your own flowers or anything else, by the way, it works also very well whispered threats with pets was landscapes, was still life, whatever you like. Just that. It was really a mimicking very well traditional oil painting, but without the mess of it. And this is really cool. So don't forget to show me what you are doing. Post a project and show me your arts. Thank you for following the class and see you soon for another class. And buh-bye.
