1. Introduction: Hi guys, my name is Kate and I had been painting with watercolors for five years. You can watch my Instagram account to get a closer look at my creativity. And today, I prepared, knew what Allison, who will draw autumn landscape with a harvest in a wheat field. In this lesson, you will learn how to break complex objects into simple parts. How to use wet in wet technique. Also, I will tell you how to make their painting harmonious and column. How to manage Whether Karla and keep it from flowing. How to add volume to objects using water column. And I will tell you about the technique of drawing with watercolor pencils. Let you get started. 2. Step 1: pencil drawing: I said From a pencil drawing, I draw the horizon line. This is the land between the Earth and the field. The second horizontal line is the line between the field and the forest. The topmost line is the mounting. Now I start drawing a have a stamp. The vertical lines to the right and left are the boundaries of the combined. On the right, I draw a circle. This is a view. Then I draw a smaller circle inside. To the right, I draw the second wheel and these two acts. Now, for the first wheel, I will draw a side, but on the right, in this way, we create the subject in perspective. Now I shade the bad or the second wheel that is in the shadow. There last detail is a small circle inside the wheel. I also droid in perspective. I add a small acts to the right to create this perspective. Next, from the middle of the meal, I draw a horizontal line and one more horizontal line on the top. This is how we draw the body of the combined. It remains to draw the front wheel. I draw a small circle at the front. One more smallest circle inside. And again, I draw an arrow on the right to draw the wheel in perspective. And inside the wheel, I draw smile round detail. Now let's draw some small details. A pipe on the top and the green on this side. The pipe is a vertical line and the grill is a rectangle. As you can see, in order to draw a complex object, we always break it into simple geometric Pat's a circle, a rectangle, and I draw small lines around the wheel. It will help me draw the structure with water column. 3. Step 2: wet on wet technique: I turned towards the column. As always, I will use wet in wet technique for the first lab. Logistically, it allows to draw the main color spots very quickly. Therefore, at first a well the top of the sheet with clean water, we should keep the combined dry with the color will not be able to flow where there is a dry paper. Now I take the cobalt column and start painting this guy. I make bonds strokes and live free space between them. Where we leave the white paper, we get clouds. To make this guy Brian, I take cobalt again. And they turned to drawing the forest to do this, I add green to the palate and they mix this column with cobalt. This way, I union the drawing by column. Notice we used cobalt when we paint it over both less chi, and the forests depend and Autumn Forest and at Orange to green, notice that they, you need the previous scholars again, Allyn my brush against the sheet so that the stroke becomes sharp. This is how I draw the crowns of it. 3s. Now add burnt sienna to make the drawing more picture set. And I continue to draw trees on the mountain. At the bride column, the mode shapes you can see. The more beautiful painting turns out now, yellow. Now I adore sharp vertical strokes to emphasize than events of the field. Since the ease of we'd have different heads, the border between the field and the forest should be uneven. I come back to the drawing, the forest F some red spots and green sports. Now the paper isn't as wet as it was in the beginning. This means we can draw the threes more accurately and they will not blow so much. For these, a mix green and the red, and the small vertical strokes adroit 3's on the background. I do the same using red brown column. I bend over the entire space over the field with a mixture of yellow and brown. I will draw the details later on dry paper. I entered wanted to this gallery and draw to the bottom of this sheet and notice the harvest that is dry again. I dig the green and start painting the grass in the foreground. Now I take a Doug Brown Karla and makes several vertical strokes. This is the shared though between the 0s or the field. Read the rest of the paint on the brush, I banned the earth in the foreground. I take dusk violet color. And again, I bend their shadow in the field with this same Cala, a bender shadow from the combined. And to read the rest of the band, I draw this structure, all the 0s and the grass blades in the foreground. Since the paper is tolerated dry, I start to draw the field to do these at take Brown and mix it really allow our youth the shape to create vertical strokes. I also tilted the brush in lethal and the make oblique strokes. It is important to change the color you use. This makes the peak chamois picture Sec. We then dug brown color and the same underbrush and make vertical strokes. 4. Step 3: the harvester: I turned to drawing a harvester to those A's emic thread and the little brown paint over the entire space with the half step, I leave a small white line on the top layer from the sun. Now with a clean, wet brush, I blow the border between the red and the white line. I awarded the brush derived within a begin and begin to remove excess paint from the top. In this way, I banned the smooth transition from the Carlin, the sun. Do a cow in the shade. I add dusk, violet color, red, and dark red color. I bend a shadow at the bottom of the half a step. I also had the shadow from the meals. Now I draw a green next to the wheels. Further is a mix violet, violet, indigo colors. This gives me a saturated that I draw a small horizontal lines. Now I draw a vertical line using the same color. This is a pipe probing the harvest stem. Ed small lines using red. This is the structure of the combined. We then makes sure, often dig and violet, I begin to draw the reals. I make the darkest color at the bottom. I bent down with a in the circled in the red. Now I banned doorway, the FAO, we'll, we're the most in that column. Also draw the structure of the real. Now I wore them to the front wheel. I been through with that URL up on the top or the wheel. And I add a shadow from the dam. Next, I draw the inner Pad, overview and a small detail in this century. And the inner part of the meal with a mixture of red ending giga. I do the same with the small wheel in front. A band over the DIA within that column. Then I blow this colour towards the outer contour. And this same time i've darkened the file latch. We'll once again, to increase the contrast. I bent over this side or the front wheel with this same that column at band or whether inside breathe gray. Don't forget about the little dagger detail and said, now we need to remove some pain to create volume. To do these, I wash them brash there I3 and remove some pain from the bottom. 5. Step 4: watercolor pencils: We had tone to the final stage. Now, I will draw a small details, the watercolor pencils. And at octants with whitewash, I started with the red watercolor pencil and make the red colour or the combined more situated. I also add this read to the real effect. Pencils is light, but it adds situation and volume to the drawing. Therefore, I used them at the last stage. Now I take whitewash and they begin to draw the texture or the tires. Now I make white strokes on their pride shooting, but I make strokes only in the upper part, since at the bottom we can see the texture of the ties due to the shadow. I use my feeling good to punch squash into the painting so that it doesn't look so bright. I add a wide highlight to the inside or the real. And the ontop. If penalize this highlighted with a white pencil, pencil leaves a less saturated wide line, then goulash. Now, black pencil, I draw the shadow at the front wheel. I also use a black pencil to draw their shadow under the combined and darken the Power View. And I add a shadow from the ease of the field. We, they're brown pencil it vertical and even lines. These are worried is I draw the lower part of the Republic pencil. And the final step is read, is in the light. For these, I use ride GO hash and disseminated very brash and make vertical strokes using it. That's all. Thank you for watching my lesson. And 3M negotiated to draft me as a teacher. I forget to subscribe to my steel shaft here. And we can use a panelist. And in student's project section does really interesting for me to see you. I see you soon. Bye.
