1. Welcome: Introduction: Good day. My name is r2 now from analyse design ago and welcome to this clause. Yeah, I will teach you how to draw a beautiful flower reef in only six states. I'm very passionate about multimedia and especially markers. In this class I will teach you how to use your markers and easy ways to be colors, and how to build up your marker collection. So I'm very happy that you can join me and I'll see you in the next video. 2. Take Two: Gather your supplies: For this project, you will need a relatively inexpensive materials, say, to get started. The paper used in this project is an inexpensive marker bad. The ink does not show through the page on the other side. You can use any paper with a relatively smooth surface. If you're anxious through that page, just use a piece of scrap paper underneath. I've used markers on many types of paper and it works great. The next item you would need is a circle shape object, something that you can draw a circle around on your paper and that sets on your paper. In this project, I just use this round bowl to draw the circle. You will need your markers that you have at hand that town. You get lots of different types of markets, inexpensive ones and cheaper ones. For this project, I'll be using a combination of those. You can build up your Markus said in a method that I will explain later. The next item you will need for this project is a pain. So I use a clutch pencil was relatively hard late. I think it's HB just helps the late notice much when you draw over it to a fill ink markers. I also found that a drawing with a harder late in a clutch pencil you get a thinner and lighter line at the end. You will also need an eraser excused as one of mine, it's been used a lot. And if you really want to be fancy, you can get yourself a moldable eraser. This is really a great eraser because you can tap your page and erase without harming your paper. This is all the supplies you will need for this project. Now that we've been through all of them, I'll see you in the next video. 3. Take Three: Color Palette & Swatches: In this lesson, I will show you how to choose your colors for your flower reef. It is very important to choose colors that go together. In the resources section, you will see that there is a chart that you can print for which you can make swatches of your markers. Each marker has normally got a number, or sometimes just the description of the color. I've also created sections. If you have different kinds of markers, you can also use this guy to build up your marker collection and see which colors you still need to purchase. What I do to select an easy color palette is to go into Google and Google 5D six colors for a color palette. You can choose your color batted according to a beach theme or whatever theme you would like to draw your reef in. Then discharge like this that you can print and keep and then select your colors according to this chart. You can now easily choose the colors that you want which correspond with your color chart from your marker color chalk. You can now see which colors is the closest to the chart you want to use. For this project, we will use color chart number 1. Now from your market sheet, you can choose the numbers which corresponds to the clauses, do the colors in the color chart, and get them out to draw your reef with. The best way is to just use a limited color palette. 56 colors would be perfect for this project. Now that you have choose more or less the corresponding colors you can take out your markers. What I normally do is choose a light and a bit darker color in the same shape. Like a dark green and light green or a dark pink and the light being. With this method you can add some shadow and some darker and lighter areas to your reef, but this is only optional. You can also use only one color and layer it on top to get the same effect, which I will show you in the upcoming lessons year, you will see that I'm matching my colors to my color chart and choosing the base colors which corresponds the most of the colors I want to use. As you can see, I'm only using 56 colors, which is more than enough. For this project, we'll use a light green and dark green peach color and a dark brown color to share edge of light blue and a light pink. You can maybe add an extra very dark color just to give that extra contrast. Like a brown or a very dark gray or green. But that is only up to you and not necessary for this project. Moving on, I'll see you in the next lesson. 4. Take Four: Foliage Practise: In this lesson, we'll do some practice on the foliage that you will use for this Arif. Using your light green color, we'll draw easy leaf, vine or runner, which will be the base completing your reef circle. Draw a curvy line and then add these easy shapes as leaf to your vine. You can add bigger shapes, smaller shape, and then color them in lightly. In your resource section is a printable where you can practice your foliage on. And remember, this doesn't need to be perfect. Flowers and leaves are never perfect. They are come in different sizes and shapes. So just enjoy the process. Once your leaves has dried, you can add some shadow by going over the first color a second time. But this is only an optional method. You don't have to include this in your wreath. By adding the shadows or lines. It just creates that extra character to your flower reef. It just gives it that extra oomph and makes it stand out and look a bit nicer in the end. Remember that practice makes perfect and we all were beginners at some stage. Once you feel comfortable drawing your leaves, we can move on to drawing your flowers. Usual dark brown for the center of the flowers, for the side view flower, you'll do just some flicked lines to one side. And for the top flower jet, you can just add some dots for the center. Now take your light pink color and do flicks on the side of the side view flower, just like half circles going around and around. Not too much. Just to create that side view flower. For the top flower, you can make these half-moon shapes going around and around and leaving some white space in between. Tell you, I feel correct size and you're happy with your flower. For adding the shadow will use the same pink color and just do some extra flicks year and there to create shadows. And to give it a bit more character. Not too much, just a little bit here and there. Practice this until you feel comfortable with it and happy with how your flower looks. Moving on to our last foliage practice, this is just a berry or around it dot flower that you can fill up your reef. Whoever will be using the light blue color for this, draw a few of these berries and then we'll move on by connecting them. All. This can be the same dark brown at the center of your flowers, or you can use a darker or another color if you'd like to connect these dots to a stain, draw the stem as light as possible by using only the fine point of your marker. Practice this until you feel comfortable and ready to move on to drawing your final reef. You can add some extra stems or berries if you feel it needs that extra organic look. For some extra detail. You can take your darker blue and add some shadows and extra detail to your berries. But as I said before, this is only optional. And you don't have to add it in this project to your flower reef. You can even use the same light blue as you started with the barrier and just layer it on top for extra shadow. For our last practice, we will take the dark green color and drawing in the leaves of the roses. You will do this by drawing fleet lines in an oval, kind of sharp. Keep on flicking the lines and tell you for my rose leaf shape and filling it in just a little bit, leaving some white space just to give it that extra character. You can decide where you want to place the leaf. Normally the side heroes gates, the leaves at the, at the bottom of the rows and the top rows can get leaves around it. Don't overdo the leaves, just keep into 23. Once comfortable, we'll be moving on to the next video. 5. Take Five: Wreath Preparation: In this video, we'll be tackling step 12, also available as a printable in your resource section. This is where you establish your position of your reef and drawing the circle around your ball, making sure that it's as light as possible. Remember to leave some space next to your circle for those flyaway leaves that you want to include in your reef. You can use your moldable eraser or normal eraser and just lighten up the circle a bit more so you can just see it. Now we will start to establish the position our fall flowers using circles and ovals. The round circles is the, is the flower scene from top. And the ovals will be the ones that is seen from the side, leaving more or less the same space between where your pleasure flowers on the circle. You can start with one and then two, and then one and then three. And notating it as you like and keeping a balance while doing so. The reason why we started with a paints or to establish the positions is so that you can erase and draw it again as many times as you like until you are happy with where you want to place them. When you are satisfied with the placing of your flower positions, you can now take the eraser again and lighten up the circle lines as much as possible. We are now done with step 12 and we'll be moving on to the class project. We have step three to six, and I'll see you now in the next video. 6. Class Project: Drawing the Wreath: Congratulations by making it this far we are now in the class project. We'll be, we'll be tackling steps three to six. We'll be starting off with our brown color and establishing the center alfalfa flowers. Just as practice in the previous lessons. You can follow along with me while we draw the reef. You will see that some sections or sped up, because it's a very repetitive process, you can make use of the printables in the resource section. And I'll see you at the end of the video. So enjoy. I suppose. So. So this is telling us, in this case, hello. Hello. This SPSS Statistics. Hi guys. So now that we've got hello. So the President's speech system. Hello. This is all done without beautiful reef, and I'll see you in the next video. 7. Conclusion: Congratulations, You've reached the end of this class, and I hope you feel inspired to draw many more beautiful flower reads with your markers.
