Transcripts

1. Introduction: Hey friends, how are you all? I'm back with another sculpture class, and in this case, aircraft. As you can see, we are going to learn a red. It is such a lovely red. And obviously we are not going to jump into main composition right away. We are going to learn each and every component one-by-one, like rose petals solvers, high drain jars full of flowers, leaves. And at last I got you covered. I'm going to give you a bonus class in which we are going to use metallic colours. So I'm really excited about this culture class and I cannot wait for two you are going to paint after taking this culture class. I am also going to really encourage you to do a lot of experiment with the colors and the form and the placement of the flowers so that you are having a unique and authentic painting, which really describe yourself. So no more weight. And let's get into the tutorials right now. 2. Art supplies: Hey friends, welcome back. So let's start off this video with introduction to the art supplies that I will be using for this tutorial. I do not force you to use exact simple supplies, but I will really recommend you to go with a little bit similar our supplies like if I'm using a 100% cotton watercolor paper and you're going to use a 100% what caught and watercolor paper. And we're, so let's get started. I'm going to use qadi paper, which is a 100% cotton and it is handmade and it is treat ONE GSM. So you can use a 100% cotton watercolor paper. No compulsion that you have to use the Hadoop people. The next art supplies that I'm going to use is my palate. So this is a metal tenant. You don't need to use only the metal tin. You can use any pellet obviously. And I will be explaining every color or I will be speaking every color while I'm using it. So basically if I am using the red colour for this, I will be naming it while that time. And I would really encourage the students to use and try and explore with different colors. And toward art, art supplies that I am going to use is my watercolor brushes. Floss brush is from silver and it is the black velvet Series and it is a size eight and it is o blend of synthetic and Squirrel Hill. And then other art supply that I'm going to use is a mob brush. It is a squirrel him operate in the size eight. So it is a Chinese brand, but you can go with any square root operation and you will need some napkin, some water. And yet these are only the art supplies that you are going to use for this tutorial. So let's get into the next video. 3. Petal flower: Of course, we cannot jump to the main competition just in the full steam. So we are going to learn few components, few main components before we are going to start with the main composition. So it is more easy for you to take our getting along with the class. So I'm going to dip my brushes into the water so they are premed, clean water. And now I'm going to remove the excess water, not all the water you can see. And now we are going to start with the petrous flower. So we are going to use color coral. It is from White Nights. I'm going to use you can use any color, no compulsion or load particular color. So I'm going to start with the basic strokes. So the basics rule that you can use as this. So we started with the very less amount of pressure. We use the tip of the brush and then reuse the belly of the brush. As you can see, we use the belly of the brush and then we ended up with a SharePoint, which is actually using by the tip of the brush. So I'm going to repeat the stroke once again. So you can see I started with the tip of the brush and then I use the belly of the brush, increasing the pressure, the middle. And then I'm going to lift up at the end. And I'm going to repeat this stroke two times so that we have a really nice petal. And when we are going to paint this petal, like few of the time then we get o petaled flower. So starting with the one petal, as you can see, I did how I explained earlier and then I am also going to alternatively, using other colors. It is a ruby color. Just the variation of the dark and light. And switching back again coral color. And now painting the same stroke few times. And now I am going to take some of the sap green. I am using a Sap Green from when the end Newton, but you can use any sap green that you like. And now I am going to paint these thin strokes. And don't worry if they're bleeding just because these are watercolors and they are going to bleed anyways. So don't worry about it. And I categorize these kinds of flowers in the petals towers. You can also do something like this. Now I'm going to shift to the another color. It is the cobalt blue deep. And it is from memory blue. You can use ultramarine blue and it works almost the same. If I am going to paint a petal for this petal, I started with the maximum pressure and then I lifted up with the tip of the brush, I'm going to increase the saturation of the color suggests a reshaping it. Okay, so I'm going to repeat this kind of basic stroke few times. And then I am going to obtain exact same the center part with a Sap Green. I don't I really love vendor watercolors actually bleed, so I do not try to suppress their property. Also, you can decrease the size of the metal. So as you can see, the side of the pedal. And I'm not going with particular, specific shape because these are the flowers and Uganda, however you want to do are even. And now again, I'm going to use the Sap Green. And I am going to be the central part. 4. Rose: Hey friends, welcome back to the video. So in previous video we learned how to paint a petaled flower and how you can get so many flowers with just reading the shape and the size of the pedal. And now we are going to learn how to beat a rows. I have brought this so many times, even on my YouTube channel, if you haven't checked my Youtube channel, you can just take it out. It's at the rate of currently 24, and it is starting with the rows. I'm going to use the ruby color, which is from White Nights. And now I'm going to start from the center of the rows. So the basic rule that we are going to use in the roles is a C stroke. So I am going to take a little bit off color in the brush. As you can see, I have placed the mixing urea in such a way that you can see the saturation and the amount of water and the paint ratio. I'm going to be those SEE strokes Now. I'm going to leave some space in between, just randomly placing the sea strokes. And now I'm going to use another brush with the clean water. And now I'm going to spread the colo. And now I am going to take more of this color, a little bit of more saturation directly using the color from the pan. And I'm willing to be indices trucks, small strokes. M60 throws a lot of contrast. And the variation. And I am going to use the brush with clean water and bleeding the edges. This is how we are going to be r rows. You can also reduce the size by decreasing the amount of the layers that we are using. And then you can also layer it by using the same technique. Are you can also just take the saturated color right away and then add the C strokes. As you can see that this layer actually added a lot of character to the roles. So it is totally up to you if you want to do this kind of set. But I will really recommend you to do this in some specific rules is not an every roads just because it will just overload the composition. So we are done with the rows and let's dive into the next video for that another component. 5. Leaves: Hey friends, welcome back to the video. So in this video we are going to learn how to paint leaves. I always say that these are really important for the flower composition. And they really play an important role. And I will always put a lot of emphasis on the rules. And we're starting with the brush. I just clean the brush would dipping it in clean water and now removing the excess water. And I'm going to take the sap green color. Again. I am using Sap Green from Winsor Newton, but you can use any sap green that you like. The leaves are very similar to the petaled flower. The basic stroke is almost the same, not exactly same, almost the same. So again, we're going to start with the tip of the British and then we are going to have the maximum pressure at the center and then we are going to live with less amount of pressure. And then repeating the same stroke. And we're ending the leaf in a such a way that we can have a sharp point over here so that we can add it to all, add a stock to it. And then we can also join another leaf. And the same brush with the same basic stroke, repeating it voice making a leaf. Again, you can change the size and the type of the leaves. So now I'm going to use a darker shade of green. It is tailored green again from the White Nights are the emerald green. So now I am going to use the same brush lifted with the emerald green color. And now I am going to live the angle. And now I'm going to use it above the brush. Less amount of pressure than increasing, gradually increasing and then gradually decreasing the pressure. You can also use this kind of leaves. And now I am going to paint it once again. You can either start from this point or you can start from this point. For the first leaf, I started from here, and for the second leaf I started from the bottom. In barely matters because uses needed the result. And then you can add the number of petals or leaves. The third type of either via going to use as an eucalyptus leaves, we will use it, but not as much as we are going to use these tools. So I'm going to use, we're going to mix the Sap Green and the cobalt blue deep. To get that really nice shared. You can also use ultramarine blue and sap green. So I'm going to be in the leaf in a circular manner. So polar oil, circular or oval. So you can see that this is not above its overall. As you can see, it is really bumpy from here. And I'm going to repeat the circles through again and again and again. And now I am going to insert all the color from the rush. And I'm willing to paint with a clean water, a little bit of green shared for the variation. And I am going to paint the stems. So these are the three kind of lives that we are going to use for this composition. You're going to also add a few components like Stems. Few stems. I use these kind of stems to join the book or the whole composition. 6. Filler flowers: The difference will come back to the video. So in this video we are going to learn some basic filler flowers that we are going to use. Filler flowers, as you can tell, these are the companies that you can use to fill up the empty spaces present in-between. You can also use a rose as a filler flower, but you can just reduce the size and then it can work as a fill of flour. And it is the, another kind of Philip flowers that you can use is like a kind of a vendor H, but I am going to use a blue color for it. Anyways, setting like this is a small petal and now I'm going to paint this petal few times. And I'm going to rinse out all the color from the British clean brush. And I'm going to paint with water so that the color can bleed. You can also add a little bit of color. And now you can use some Sap Green. And I am going to add small petals, small leaves, because it looks really good. And you can see it looks so pretty and it, it's gonna look so good. And your composition and the other guy now flour that you can use to fill up the empty space is hydrogen jazz. So we're not going to paint exact same. We are just going to paint the petal one Pareto to petrol, three bedroom for battle. And because high ranges have, usually have four petals. And now I'm going to be 1234. That must be close. Add, do not want to mess up displays. And again, repeating the same. And I'm going to rinse out the colour taking a little bit of more color. And now I'm going to please this pedal at some distance. And I'm going to run out the color and I'm willing to be with the clean water. So as you can see, it looks so good. It is one of my favorites. And I am going to use some of the Sap Green. And I'm willing to pay in the central part and all of them so that it looks like a small bunch. And the other component that you can use a lot is the color leaf. I use it a lot so you can just paint the leaves of the other color like I'm, I can use orange color. Right now. I'm going to use orange color. And you can paint an orange color leaf. You can fill up the space with the colored leaves. So there is no restriction that you only have to use these two components or these three components. You can use any component to fill up the space. But the thing is that not, but the thing is that main focus should not be on these components. These things are only used to support the main elements. 7. Peony: Heavens, or come back to the video. So we were talking about the components of the composition that we are going to pin. So we are going to, so there is another component that I would really like to add, and it is a Paeony. They're going to paint the Paeony. So I'm going to load the color into the brush as you can see, my mixing urea and now I'm going to paint the petals. So the basic stroke is again very similar to what we did earlier. So we just want to achieve ten parts from here. Take from here. And again, ten from here. So I am going to paint it once again. And now I'm going to rinse out a little bit of color, just reducing the consist of the saturation. And I'm going to paint a small petrol. And now I'm going to paint a big petal. And now I'm going to paint the petals on the top, but I'm going to leave dismissed space in the center. You can also use a dotted line like I did. And then being the petal width. Not forget to mix those dotted lines in the petals else they will look really bad. And I'm going to take some of the orange color and mix with the yellow color, primary yellow. And I'm going to paint the pollen grains are the same. You can also use Paeony. You can also add few petals added the bottom, like this. And I can also add a little bit of saturated color here. And a little bit of saturated color anyway. 8. Floral wreath part: 1: Hello friends, welcome back to the video. So they are a little bit changes in the paper that I will be using. So I have shifted to the A3 size paper because it will be really hard for you to see red forming on the A4 size. And on a two side, it will be more comfortable and easy for you to see on the camera. Also. So painting overhead, there can be two possibilities, most probably, that you are really confident and you can bead of red in a circular manner very easily without any guidance. And if you're having difficulty by painting of red in a circular manner, you can use a pencil or a compass to paint or to mark up a circle over here, and then you can go it accordingly. So I won't be using a compass, I will be using just the pensive and I'm going to mark a circle just for the guidance. I have painted red for a few times and I am little bit confident that I cannot pay it without the guidance, but it is just for your friends. Anyways, I'm going to use the same these two brushes. I'm going to dip them into the water and make them prepared. So I'm going to start with the ruby color, which is from the white knights. And I'm going to start with the roses. So I'm going to start, I won't be paying placing my flowers on the top of this line. Obviously, they will, they will be a little bit off and on. So I am starting with the C strokes that we learned earlier. The exact same stroke, the keystrokes going all around the flour and I'm going to use the other brush with a clean water and bleeding the color from the sea strokes. And now I'm going to be the same stroke, again, a little bit of more saturated colour. And now using other brush to bleed. What I'm going to do is I'm going to place the roses at the fullest. I won't be placing any other flower at the force. I'm going to play just the roses, different colors. I am not going to use just the one color. You can just use any color you want. So now I'm going to use Alizarin crimson, which is from senior leaders, and it is a dark red shield. And now I'm going to repeat the same step that I did here. I'm going to paint a rows over here, the sign on the line, stroke. And I'm going to use another brooch with clean water and I'm Linda Sprint. You can always pause and you can always go back to the previous video and you can revise the self that we did. So I really like the shape of this flower. It is a little bit fluffy roles as compared to this one, but I like the boat is. Now the total rows will be an orange color. And I'm going to place it over here, repeating the same set that we did earlier. Now, taking some orange color, you do not have to check with the theme colors that I'm using. You can just explore your creativity. And I'm going to put some petals hours. 9. Floral wreath part: 2: And I'm willing to work some petals hours. I'm going to take some D color, green from white knight. It is a really bright blue color and I'm going to paint the petal. Just try to go with the flow. Do not be, do not feel very restricted with the hand movement. Because more freely you go more better. It will be represented on your arm. And I'm going to take some of the Sap Green and painting the center part which keeps the flour together. And now I'm going to be in the same flower. So what I did, I just, I'm just painting the same kind of flowers don't buy tons to reduce the amount of stress or even the confusion. I'm going to take a little bit of yellow colour mixed with the ruby colored to form a peach color. I know you guys love peach color. And I'm going to be in the same flower here. And now the same, I'm going to use another brief for the green color. If you're using two brushes, it will reduce the wastage of the colour. But if you are just having one bridge, it is totally fine. Now I will be nylon painting some hydrogen jazz as a main body. So what we learned with the via willing to paint flower with four petals of now with the four petals at some distance, you can also increase the number of petals. Again over here, over here. And I'm going to rinse out the color. And I'm going to paint with a clean water so that the color can bleed. I'm also going to use a little bit of color in-between some DD petals. You can always use a combination of two colors. It looks good. And use some green color to keep all the flowers together. Small petals or leaves, they always look good. And now I will be building the same flower. But I'm going to shift the color. I'm going to use burnt sienna and an orange here. So this is a burnt sienna in my ballot. And I'm going to be in some high ranges over here. Burnt sienna is a brown color. The ending full flower. Do or trifles. Ours are not full flowers. And now I'm going to take a little bit of color and a little bit of orange. It is Ron White Night. You can use any shade of orange. And now I'm going to use the clean water and spread the glow. Taking some sap green in my brush. 10. Floral wreath part: 3: And now I'm going to paint over here. So I am going to take some of the ruby color over here. Really saturated color, right? And I'm going to be, and I'm going to be a big bed lower here, small pedal over here. And another big battle over here. And now I am going to be in these dark deadline that I have to be in the battle above this line. Make sure to hide those dotted lines because they won't look good. And now I'm going to take some of the orange color. And being these Bolin lines or the steam lines, I will also take some of the yellow color. It is a fierce flour. And I'm willing to take some of the ruby color once again. And I'm going to be a few battles at the bottom over here. And now I'm going to take surrealism when m color, pseudonym, color mix with cobalt blue deep. I'm going to dilute it a lot. And I am going to be in the petals hours. But this, these will be really, really lose. Like really lose. Just the half flower, not the full flower. And some over here. Over here. I'm going to use a yellow color. And being small betel flowers. Just trying to fill up this space. I do not bother if my color is bleeding because these are watercolors and it is its property. And I'm going to take some of those, Adam Green and I'm going to be in the center part of the flower. So the thing is if you're using a big piece of paper, you have to be in more flowers. So if you are not ready to paint so many companies and bagel, big opposition you can always call with A4 size. And now I am going to be in some field of flowers. The one with the blue that we learned earlier, painting the pedal. And now a using a damn brush. And now I am going to layer this flower because it looks really boring. Remember we use layering. 11. Floral wreath part: 4: And now I'm going to add some leaves. I'm going to make some sap green. This is a really meditative painting. I'm really enjoying it. First complete these flowers. And now I'm going to beat some of the leaves. So painting leaf over here. So you can always play with the placement of the flowers and leaves. And there is no rule. Creativity. You can use differentiate of green. Right now I am using a darker shade of green, which is the green from Daniel Smith. If you have any question, you can always ask me in the review section or you can message me on Instagram, which is currently 24. I'm going to be in some small battles here and there in the ranges. The dark color. And I'm Lynn doping pedals back with a big petals and leaves. And I'm going to use green, green, green. The G7 from any brand name. And I'm going to be in the ten leaves. Just sneaking up in between the places. And you can always darken it by adding some shade of red, black, or dark in it. And I'm windowpane those leaves. If you're painting above the flowers on the flowers, make sure that the base layer is already dried. The leaf will just get mins in-between. 12. Bonus class: Bonus tip, we are going to use some metallic colours for flower red. So I have already prepared the golden colour in this pan. It is all about to run out, but we are going to do it. And it is not very necessary. You can just start where till here, but I am going to continue just a little nice step which can really shine out your composition. So I am going to use the goal color. And just to paint the almost same leaves, same petals, you have to use the same color for the theme stroke. Like I'm using the gold color for the same strokes that we learned earlier. Like see strokes on the Rose is very TNC strokes. And see strokes over here. And on the darker part. Battled over the ten lines, ten battles. And guys, we are done with the composition. I hope you really enjoyed this course, your class, and I am really excited to see what you are willing to pay it after taking this class. Don't forget me. Do a tag on the Instagram page. It is at the rate of coronary 24. And I love to see what you have painted after taking this class. Thank you so much and see you guys in the next class.
