1. Introduction: Hi. My name is Eischen. Sorry. And this is part two. Off the fun and easy watercolor backgrounds. You are going to learn how to make five beautiful background and lord of Techniques that you can use in your artwork. Every show you how to make a beautiful night sky and a pattern background using a stencil once again on I'm going to also cover a beautiful floral background. They're easy to make and can be made by anybody off any level. If you're new war color or you already have the skills off water color, you can just use these techniques to improve your skills. I will also make an abstract background. That's one that I'm going to show you is a juicy Citrus background that I usually use for littering. Um, so let's get started. I hope you like these classes 2. Supplies: applies a really simple You will be needing watercolor pains or regular paper on some brushes. I'm gonna go in detail. Um ah. These are my basal watercolors that I have. These are from Hall bine, this common little tubes like these that I just squeeze into a into an empty pilot. And then once it's dry, store it. I'm going to be using this prime a marketing metallic accents only. I used the cure back again side and be started colors, but I realized these have ah more shimmery color. So I purchased this one and I really like these. So I'll be using these Onda, um, I'm going to be using, um, I my jello mission gold watercolor palette. He's also come in little tubes on an empty palette that you can squeeze into on and store. Also, I will be using my Jane Davenport watercolor palette. Onda uh, this I usually used for travel, but I really like the bright colors. So I picked a few colors. We mostly using the ink color from this one. I will also use a few colors from my old set uh, old the cure docket Gunsight ambi. I really like this set. I love the black. As you can see, some of them are even over. Um, but I continue to use thes these colors. The black dries really beautifully. So I am going to use the black on also a couple of colors from these for people. I always suggest using the cans and extracurricular people in £140. These are cheap and hold water. Really? Really Well, that's why I suggest using £140 any less. And you won't be able to use a lot of water. Um, with your watercolors. So I I love the cancer, actually, watercolor B. But I always used these. Next I will be using Doctor Ph Martin's be proof white. This is a white pig injury like to use for details. A few ballots to mix colors. Andi, I would also be using my you nibble signal White job in. This is also going to be for details now moving on to brushes. I am going to you. It was an acrylic brush, but I warned, like good strokes. So I decided to pick this for watercolor on. I'm going to be using this fan brush. Um, this is a really cheap founders that I found in a store. Um, perfect for making different strokes and then my pencil, mechanical pencil and a compass to make circles. I'm going to use this, Vincent. And you didn't art masking fluid to mask certain areas where I don't want a certain color. This comes in a little bottle like this and it dries out. Um, this is only must improve that I have used. You can use any that you have on a jar off water, actually, $2 of water. 3. Your Project: the project is really simple. You have to make just one watercolor background. Using the techniques that you learn in the class is this background can be for littering or for your greeting card or anything, and you have to then a border to the project calorie, Um, after you're done. 4. 1. Stencil background: this background I'm going to be using extensive. I got this at Michael's. You can use any sense of that you have. Um I'll be using this one to start with. I'm going toe, take my central out on. Since this isn't very stiff, I'm going to use a washing tape and stick it to my word killer sheet. Um, I used Washington because it's better than using a Scotch tape. Scholarship turns to take some off your paper out. When you remove the tape, this one just comes off easily. So I'm just going to keep it in place, and then I'm going to use my pencil. Andi, please. The inside off my sensitive She finished raising it out. Um, using a size to brush and different colors, I am going to start filling the inside off the ships To do this, I start with the edges and then use some water. The political er in, Um, I actually initially did this Ah, as an exercise to see which colors go together and try out different combinations. But it looked really nice and it became a beautiful pattern, so I decided to keep it like that. But I always um, use it as a reference to see ah, Which colors go together for mine expending so here, As you can see, I use, um, blue. And then, um, I'm going in with some ridean, which is a bluish green color. So this is mainly, um, analog Assis. Nothing much to worry about. I'm just going to drop in some of my metallic blue in some of the places to add some shimmer. I love adding shimmered to my watercolor pieces. So you see how beautifully it blends everything and just looks complete Our get intimidated by the sharp edges using it really pointed brush will help you, um, get that right. And you can always go over and back when you want to adjust and fix any edges. After this, I'm going to do shares off green. This way you can explore all the color that you have on your palate. Um, so first I wanted to all the animal August colors and then I want to try out colors and combinations that don't really go together. As in, they don't blend together, but they look beautiful together. - Now I'm going to use colors that don't blend together. Um and cleared and muddy Look, So I'm going to start with this speech that I have on on the other side. I'm adding green, different shades of green, and I want to make that slightly more big. I'm gonna Axum opera pink. So before, before they start blending, I am going to drop in some goal that we Ah, I award. The Brown messenger is in the middle where the tomb blend on. That way I can see how colors that don't go together that don't blend together. We'll look in a pending. You continue doing this, exploring all the colors on my palette, and I'm going to fast forward all of this. You can play with all the colors in your palette to on Just be brave enough to try different combinations offer this is done and why there's drying. I'm going to show you some pencil sketches off just very simple line drawings that I'm going to ah, make on double off the shapes that I just being did. So these are just going to be some flowers and leaves Very, very simple. You can come up with your own Ah, simple five petaled flowers and leaves. Ah, This is just to Axum detailed to my pardon Now. Ah, using my wife signal. Gel pin, you nibble. Signal gel pen. I'm going to draw those patterns into my shape. Starting in the 1st 1 Making a list off, um, little sketches is going to help. - We are done on This is how it looks. I think it makes for a great friend, maybe wallpaper or even gift wrapping papers for my friend out. Ah, and those metallic accents look gorgeous. Hope you enjoyed this class. 5. 2. Easy peasy florals: This is one of my favorite backgrounds. It's so easy to make on. Um it looks beautiful. Teoh, make the flowers. I'm going to use a really soft pink. This is from whole buying watercolors. Um, and I'm going to use an opera ping. Our weapons are usually really bright, so you can use any brand. This is my jello mission goal. But you can use Winsor and Newton are holding watercolors a prepping, and then I'm going to use a little bit of yellow. These three colors are for my flowers. Andi, I'm gonna add a little bit off shimmer to the flowers using this metallic accents by prime a marketing colors for the leaves. I'm gonna use an olive green as, um grown. Andi, I'm were actually used, um, a bunch of rounds, different grown colors. So, yeah, this is going to be my pilot. I like to set a palate before I start. So I know how water is going to look like, um, first, I'm gonna show you how I'm gonna make the flowers gonna show you one flower. Um, when will you be using a bunch of, um, different round brushes? Mostly 10 ones. So This is the one I'm going to use for battles. And then the religion ones size zero R um, smaller than that for the center of the flowers. So now dipping my paintbrush in yellow. I'm going to make little door, Pops, this is going to be the center of the flower. Okay, this can be a little bit watery just so that the colors then blend together. Next, I'm going to add a little light brown around the edges. It's okay if it goes to the center. We just need a little bit of yellow. Make sure you use a lot of water for this just to keep it a little wet. We're gonna be using dark and dark brown on the outer circle, and then I'm just going to use my thin brush and pull it out. Words. I'm going to keep this also wet because I want the petals on the color of the pedals to blend a little bit with the browns. So I'm gonna make sure that this is red. If, in case you feel it is drying out, you can just read your brush again and, yeah, keep it a little red on the edges. So started. Better one. I'm going to just add a little opera ping, but my basically is going to be the soft pink. This is the color shell ping from hold by. Um, is one of my favorite color is actually And it goes really well with this or propping. Uh, I'm using a really water down version off my yellow just to our little color, um, to the center of the battles. And as you can see, I'm meeting some gaps in this middle. Uh, because I don't want to look, I don't want it to look really flat as it's wet. I'm going to drop in my shimmery light yellow Andi, I just love the way these colors bleed and blend with the rest of the watercolors. So my color, my flower has dried and you can see how beautiful it looks. I'm gonna show you no harm. We're to be making the tea leaves. I'm using my round brush and with the tip, I'm going to be making a little stem on. Then, with just a little wiggly motion, I'm going to dip my paintbrush in the two colors that I have chosen on just wriggle and pull it. Wiggle and pull. That is the only motion I'm going to be using, um, to make the leaves. No particular shape is just a little stem. Take leave. Andi is going to pull it out in a 10 stroke. I'm using the two colors that I have chosen. That is olive green and the brown. I'm using a bigger brush size eight. This is also a round brush. See, I was going to wiggle a little and then just pull it just to give it an impression off a leaf. In my previous class, which was on Morton watercolor florals, I showed you guys how to make these leaves just by tipping up in Russian, two different colors you're going, Teoh be able to get. And then I'm just going to add some battles on the side. I use a lot of different colors, um, different shades in the same flower, because this is like the water cooler than it's only when you use water and make the color light or dark. It gives just a lot of, um, dimension to your flower, going to add a little bit of yellow and then with my brown I'm going to make the stem. There's a really easy flowers just by strokes off your paintbrush can clear these beautiful flowers and, um, get, like, really nice backgrounds. And then I'm going to use the same two colors for my leaves and the stem. Um, I just think that the Schimmel had a lot of magic to these flowers. I'm not going to make another flower to show you again. Um, how I make the 1st 5 petal flower. The thing that I do with the pedals is, um, I moved in a circular motion so I don't get regularly pointy edges for my pedals like I did with my earlier flowers. I'm in my previous class. These are just, um, rounder battles Easier to make for the birds. I'm just going to use my paintbrush and make, um, these little strokes, which are kind of over and shape Andi just dab my paintbrush, um, to make it look like a bunch off. Um, but I want you to do that. You can just go in with your doctor. Shit. Onda, um, make the little stem and leaves. They make for great fillers. - No , I'm going to fill my sheet with these flowers. I'm gonna fill the spaces with birds and leaves and some stems fast forward a little so I can just finish up the entire sheet. But I'm basically doing the same thing over and over again, - multiplying to make some larger birds just to fill this basis. - I'm also going to use a couple of different sizes brushes to make different sized leaves, like for the birds and stuff I'm going to use on my tin brush to even make some leaves. - We are finally done on. And I hope you like that. If you do try, please let me know how it goes. 6. 3. Abstract background: for this background. I'm going to be mainly using this flat brush. I'm going to show you how to make the strokes. You get an idea off the big men to water ratio. Ah, keep a piper doll next to you so you can just wipe of X to excess water. So I'm doing my brush and do the paint. And then, um, I'm going to remove excess paint and water. So this is my first drop. This I feel, is still a little what race? I'm just going to, um I have some more pain. And yes, this is the kind of stroke that we're looking for. Um, with more bregman and less water, I'm going to show you what really watery one is gonna look like. Ah, and this is something that we do not want for this piece. Um, because you're just going to have the other color blend into this local ever going to use is the sky blue. So I'm gonna make a stroke, and then it just to show you the two shares that we're going to use. We are going to keep this dry just so that these two colors don't blend into each other. I'm going to start over making a frame around, um, off two inches using a wash it if I'm going to mask the inside off the frame. Um, not completely, because I'm going to go all over it. I just need crisp edges on using the same stroke. I'm going to start with my logical It is sky blue and make strokes in this, um at this angry leaving gaps for my navy blue strokes. Um, and that is the only reason I do not keep is really red and watery because I don't want them to blend. I warned them to stand out separately as several blocks. So go around and add your navy blue strokes in between Andi overlapping the blue sky blue. I'm going to continue adding these strokes to cover all of the white background. Um, if you feel that you have a lot of navy blue deep your paintbrush in some sky blue and covered it up layer your name blue with the sky blue, Mom. But just make sure that all of your white background white paper is covered. Next, I'm going to add some black checks using this category plan that I have that has a strict cut nib You can use that yourself have been market if you have to. But I just have this one, and I'm going to go ahead and use this one. Um, I'm gonna make checks like these black and white to resemble the checkered flags off these cars. Um, I like to add this pattern because I usually use this background for boys. Any quarter conditions for boys rooms are any personalized, um, baby shower stuff. So that's why I like to add this pattern to this. This I was inspired by something that I saw on in just a while ago, and that is when I decided to add this to my background. So I'm just going to randomly add these checks around the background after that. Um, using my big mom Micron Size it. Oh, it, Ben, I'm going to make some arrows. Actually, I'm just adding these elements to make it look, um, interesting. Some arrows and lines using this black pen. Ah, you know, ball signal. Why? Gel pin to do the same. You're painting is a dry pull out your Washington Andi offer that I'm going to use my flat brush again. Dip it in the ink blue, the navy blue that I was using. Andi start bending the center off this ah beast. Actually, I just are depending it. Like this. Um, because I thought I was confident. And I could use the straight edge of the brush to keep it clear on dumb sharp, the edges clear and sharp. But I felt that, um, it would be easier if I use the washing tape on the outside. And so I decided to do just that. Okay, Now that it is around, Aiken, go in easily and, um, bent the insight. I'm going to add a few years because I want toe letter on it and white, So I wanted really or bake. And, um, the color should be really, really dark. So I'm gonna go in with a few layers over wait for your painting to dry completely before you don't with Washington. And don't do something like me. Eso I just ended up pulling it out while it was still weird, and I pulled some paper up. But if you enter, bring something like this. Just dip your paintbrush into some pain and fix it up I want another Ah, frame around this. So I'm going to make a, um, a little box outside of this. And I'm just going to use my thin brush and make a thin line just to make it look, um, complete. And, like, put together If you are not confident enough to do this with a paint brush, You can always do this with a ah sketch pen or the marker. But I suggest that you try this. Ah, you can master this with some practice and control over your paintbrush. Background is no complete. I hope you like that. Please don't try it. It's more under the next one. 7. 4. Citrus background: This is a Citrus inspired background, and I have chosen grapefruit. As you can see, Grape, what has a beautiful coral pink center and, um, light orange outside. Ah, So I'm going to be first making my pilot. That is, I'm going to start with the colors off the grapefruit. Um, so we have the orange here, this is going to be for the outer them of the slaves. And then I'm going to make that bright Cory. Um, so I'm going to makes my opera ping with my permanent yellow. Um, it gives a really bright color. I'm just going to add, um, some opera ping onda orange to my, um, center of my grapefruit. So this is going to be the basic color off my, um, center and a little bit off bright pink. So I'm going to start first by, um, measuring out and making a little frame in the center of my, um, sheet an inch. And then I'm just going to use a warship tip toe. Um, make the frame. What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna use two different sizes of tapes, so we have a little gap in the center. I really like this kind of frame, it looks a lot more interesting than just using one. Take. Ah, Washington took over the center. So I'm going first to use my 10 tape, and then I'm gonna make a smaller frame inside and then take the center eso the area which has the green Washington is after That's done. I'm going to just mark the central of my circles and makes motorcycles over there. These motorcycles are going to have no color now picking my color, which I have made using a propping and yellow. Um, what I'm gonna start doing is making the flesh of the fruit. Um, these are gonna be in separate triangles all together inside the circle I'm going to be using Ah, this stroke, like just making lines inside on. I'm gonna leave a lot of white, Ah, gap in the middle just to make it look really juicy and, um, colorful as it does on I'm also going to use some orange along with the coral that I mean, you can use a pencil to make these triangles, or you can, if you're confident, you can, ah, make it like directly with your paintbrush. So using the same strokes. I'm going to fill in and we'll leave a lot of white spaces in the middle. Make sure you pick all the different colors that you have are some opera, some ah corners. And then you can add some orange and, um, the basis going to be the school that we made. I am almost done with the first great for slice. And now I'm going to make the rind. - Now I'm going to take my orange on. Added to the edge, as you can see is just bleeding into the water, um, into the wet, um, any other to be just made. I'm going to add slightly darker orange to certain edges just to give it a very finished look. I'm going to leave this center blank, so I'm gonna add some light orange over there to, um, no, I'm going to do my next slice. The exact same thing. I'm going to go around and make the same thing. Um, toe all of the circles to all of the slices. I was going forward This a little Once you're done with the slices, you can either just leave it alone. Um, as it is or you can fill in the gaps with some more color and, um, water. - You're done with the background. You can cover the middle using a strip of paper because you're gonna let over there or write something. And ah, Axum splatter ones. Your background is dry. My sheet is a little wet in some places. That's where you can see that the color just blending in. But some corners, I think it's still it's our dry so you can see this platter on. I'm gonna use this really beautiful goal and are some splatter to add some shimmer to my piece. After that, you can just remove this. Andi let your piece dry. Once it's Joe, you can remove your washing tape and get that beautiful edge Join Making this. You can even do lemons are green limes, or you can mix them and get like these colorful Citrus. Um, background. Um, you can just play with colors really on. Yeah, I hope you enjoyed it. You can just it is all of the pencil markings, and you're ready to use the center for anything that you like. 8. 5. Full moon night: It's really simple background. A bit like the night sky, moon and some mountains support. I'm going to divide the patient toe. Um uh, do parts, one leg, a really big one and the other one, which is like, 1/3 of the page, and then I'm going to make So this is a little higher way. I'm not gonna choose the exact center of the page. Um, just to make it a little bit more realistic. After that's done, I'm just going to likely draw my mountains. Next, I'm going to make the moon using my compass some of my mornings hidden behind the mountains . So I'm just going to It is, um, a little bit. So it's not a complete circle. Um, offer that I'm going to make a bandit. You can make abandoned in any, um, shape that you like. This is a really simple one. I am going to mosque my moon using this Windsor Newton masking fluid. She have a masking pen. You can use that, um, to use this, I use an old, um paintbrush because it doesn't come off. So this is another pain percent. I have going to use this to mask my moon because I'm going to paint the sky and I don't want, um, anything to come on the moon. We're going to be a different colors, totally. So he's going to quickly mask the moon and refer to dry. Um, while you're drying, I'm going to go ahead and color my ban it. I'm gonna make this black on as opaque as possible Toe. I might do another layer over this because watercolors tend to be a little, um, trans burned one's dry. Also, I want to see that I am using the cure. Attack a gun sight on be black color. I love the way, um, these watercolors a dry ah, really opaque and, um, really intense. I have ah, Nigella mission gold black. But that isn't as black as this one. So I really like to use Ah, this particular black. And as you can see, I'm almost done with this, um, watercolors because I use it so much. Ah, I was going to finish this ban it in just one single color. What I like to use this banner is for adding any names or courts or anything like that. Um, but you can just go ahead and skip this, ban it and just make the night sky that you re perfecto. No, I'm going to order it on my black Andi going to make the mountains. This is These are just like the city way of the mountains, and I'm gonna make ah few layers over them. So I'm going to start first with a really light, um, worker down. Um, bend. Make sure that you don't make perfect triangles, because we way we want to make it. Ah, but more realistic. With the tip off the paint brush, you can make the line. Um, but you don't have to be really perfect with that. If you really want to keep it straight, you can use a washing tape and cover the bottom on that where you will get a perfect line. But I don't really think we need ah really sharp edge over there for them will be making trees in front so that would be covered with that. Well, let this first Lear dry, and then, um, with a little bit more pained, you can start making your second layer of mountains, so just go over it. Ah, only thing you need to remember is that your first layer is completely dry and your second lead a little bit more doctor than the 1st 1 Now I'm going to pick some indigo. Um, this is going to be really light. Um, I have a lot of water in my brush on. I'm going to make these strokes just on one side and one on in one direction. So this strokes are going to be just in one direction. Um, just to show that there is some shadow and you know how to give it, like the texture of a mountain. - I'm also going to add some strokes in black, my pain, but still has a lot of water. I'm going to go in the same direction. Ah, as I did with Dana. Go on. This is just to make it look like there are a lot of mountains in the background in a distance and now picking up some more color. I'm going to make my last strokes for the mountains in the distance in the same direction. Some finishing touches to my mountains where I feel that is some gap or need some more definition. Ah, the only two colors. I'm gonna use that black and indigo. And I lowered my last layer to the mountains in the front, to the hills and different, actually, Um, just with the doctor black. Now I'm going to start with my night sky, so I'm first. I'm using my yellow. This is just so that, you know, um, to give the impression that the area around the moon is a little bit lighter than the rest . So I'm just using yellow on. But this is really wet, so make sure that you keep this Oh, right. So that it blends with the rest of the colors and it doesn't dry out and give like, hard edges. We don't want that. Next. I'm using this green. I'll be using ah, yellow for this and then a little bit of green and then blue indigo in black. I am going to add a lot of layers. So once my first lady is dry, I'm gonna go in and at the 2nd 1 and then the third until I get this really intense. Um, color. Keeping the edges by just adding some water. Take some time. Good, dry out. So that way you can while you're working on one side, you others I won't dry are completely not big Your blue Andi startling, blending it with the green. Also, when you move into the yellow is going to become the same shade of green. So it is going to look perfectly blended these round brushes. Um, Princeton Sable heritage brushes have a really nice step, a very sharp tip so that we you get crisp edges for your mountains. Oh, what you're working on the sky or what you can do is you can always go and add your masking fluid to the mountains on. Do the nice guy Finish that, and then you can remove your mask in food and then go in and do your mountains. It's, uh, just your personal preference. I'm going to start adding my darker shoots. No of blue. This is a Navy blue I'm using. Were Tegler's, um, tend to dry out lighter, Then they look when they're wet. So that's why I, um, go over and do like a couple of more layers. I'm using my indigo, and then the portion over the banner is going to be completely dark. By the time you reach your second side. Your foresight is going to be almost dry. So that way you can just start adding the second layer again from the first sight. So here I finish this side and I'm going to make, um it went again, adding some more yellow and then just burning it out. And I can start adding color to my first set again, - again blending it out with, um, some of the yellow and green. Well, that's it. Going too dry. I will start making, um, these next to the highway that I have made. So for someone is going to start by adding, um, some color to the background there are going to be. I mean, this is legs. I think this is gonna be like bushes. I don't know what exactly you were called these. They're just like long grass. Yeah, actually, grasa so on both side of the highway. So instead of just starting off with the grass, I'm going to first add a little color to the, you know be is I'm gonna do the exact same thing on the other side. This is drying. I'm going to go back to my sky and add my third layer chemical really dark and intense. Now, using the fan brush that I have, This is a really cheap quality, normal fan brush size six. It says I'm going to dip it in water, then soak some extra water going to my green and start from the corner in this kind of stroke. I'm just gonna pull up, pull out like that. Um, make sure you don't make straight lines. Make it a little bit curved on. You can also makes a few colors. I want to go blue and green. This is just my first lead. What you need to remember is not to keep a lot of water in your brush. Keep drying it out on the paper. Dollar on the side. On their way. You will get strokes or else everything is going to blend into each other. You won't get these perfect strokes, if at all. You get some of the paint on toe the white portion. Just make it wet and pick it up with some paper dollars. Now I'm going to do go over and do my second layer, so I'm starting up again. If you get some of the paint on your mountains, that's OK because you're gonna make trees anyways over there, so yeah, um, are extra careful about that. This is this way. Um, if you start from the corner, you're going to get, um, the strokes in the front of going to overlap the stock at the back. So that's why it's better to start from the from the end. And I used to colors because I think it gives a lot of definition to what you're making, then just using one single color after I'm done with this side, I'm just going to do the exact same thing on the other side. I want to add some splatter to my nice guy basically the stars to the sky. So I'm using these strips of paper that I cut out just to protect my, um, banners from any splatter and also the sky. The moon anyways has mass influence, so that's OK. They were just a rough sheets of ever that I got into strips and then I'm going to use ah, Doctor Ph Martin's bleed proof white. Mix it up with some water and use my paintbrush and another brush Mr Kitson's bladder simply proof white. I'm going to add some little darts to the edges off the banner, so it looks like stitches. You just finish up the rest of the ban It no. Using made reason. I'm going to remove my masking fluid for the moon, um, Axum border to your black and just go over the entire moon with water. Make sure it's wet. And while it's where I'm just going to use the tip of the paintbrush on DA drop in some more black. So we're just bleeds into Ah, the light agree that you have made I didn't color to, ah, one edge off the moon And then, um, sort of like to do is I like to make one edge slightly darker than the other. And then before the dries our i r a little bit more black, Just brilliant color over it on in the end, Uh, do make some spots. If you feel that it has dried out, you can add some water, and the color will just, you know, the water will just pull the color into it. - Using the same green and really 10 round brush. I'm going to start making my trees. I surely hard to make this trees in my first background class when an easy watercolor, Bagram's. So I'm going to start with Green Force and then I'm going to do black. This is because I don't want it to look like all the tree that in one straight line. No, there are some in the distance, and then there, some in the front so the ones in the front are going to be darker than the ones at the back of the green. Trees are actually the ones at the back, and then I'm going to make these slightly shorter. In the center is to give the painting some depth. I'm going to fast forward a little and finish up the line off my green trees. No, I'm going to start with my black trees. So with the same brush, I dip into my black paint and start with the gaps between the green trees on. Then I'm going to overlap them, - going on to the last part that is the highway, and when I have some water to my black pain on down to the edge of the highway, and then I'm going to dip my brush in some water and pull some of the black into the water , So I'm gonna have a darker edge and, um, slightly later in the center, and then you can go over it a couple of times. Get the right shade now , using the yellow, just fill up the divider. Make sure you don't make it really flat at some point in the end. And then, ah, some water in them centered. So that way you can. Or if you think you have a relative color, just clean your brush and pick some color from the center. No, I think I'm happy with the way the divider looks on dis complete start painting. 9.
