The depth of this painting all obeys, triggers a part of your soul every time you look at it, I have this painting hanging on my wall for a few years now. And I know the joy it brings every time I looked at it. And that's why I decided to teach this painting so that you can also experience the same. Hi, my name is Deb and I am an artist, best shouted India. I had been teaching art professionally for the past five years. I have changed my profession from being a corporate employee to a full-time others to buy your spec, to pursue my interest in art and to educate others about art.

With just a little bit of practice, you will be able to master it really well. And you'll be able to create the snow beaks very easily. In this class, we will be talking about how you can learn to create this painting on a canvas and decorate your space or a gift, your loved ones. Using the same techniques I have created at least five feet long canvases, as you can see in this pictures. I will be showing you all the art supplies that I use to create this painting and the Toro step-by-step guidance to create this breathtaking landscape painting. If you followed my other classes, you will know how much I focus on techniques which you can use to create any future projects or paintings. And in this class also I will tell you about every detail working with acrylics and creating an amazing masterpiece. You will see me mixing colors, applying pins, each and every off my brush strokes, my every move in creating this painting. And I will be sharing with you a lots of tips and tricks along the way. This class is big enough Ramy. So if you are someone new to accurately paintings, you can definitely give it a try because it will boost your confidence to handle this medium. If you haven't been eating in acrylics for some time, you can pick up some new techniques from this class. The step-by-step approach of this class can be followed by anyone and everyone. All you need is your Canvas, some acrylic colors, your interest in Ott, and your time to dedicate to this glass. So I really look forward to seeing you inside the glass. 2. How to approach this painting on a big canvas!: So in today's class, I'm gonna be teaching you how to clean perspective on this side, scanners, which is 11 by 14 inches. So you have the choice to whatever size E1. But what I especially want to do in GIS classes, this is a fairly easy painting, which means that you're going to want to learn the techniques. You can delete it on any set embassy of 1a. And I definitely want to you, what do you do to try to create it on a big that was like this. So you have to do is practice this fainting cup of diets and watch the complete New York trade on. Maybe duties. Gang resists unless you get a hang of it because do you have to do things to learn you this week is due techniques to be able to create it on a big N plus one is the snow cover is a nice technique. I am. The second technique is creating that these are the greens and everything. So these are the two main techniques that you need to learn in this class. Before reading it along this face gammas, this is two by three feet. I included this scatterers. And so this feeding on US law says m is at least five to six times to get a handle of this gain g. So once it did a handle, this being too, you can actually put it on websites like who may not have to work on this piece x. That is, you can use whatever size you're comfortable. But you should definitely give it a try. Because I know that this painting is like on silicon thickness. It is so easy that you can easily created on a military standards. All you need is a bigger says brushed that goes behind because as Atlas, depending on the size that you're using. And the biggest reason that these are the only two key things that you need to war this BMD genomic seq. Okay, so having said that, I want you to really enjoy this class, learner techniques, do it 23 times, get a hacker feed and good. And this painting wasn't needed, honor, because I am because it can actually deplete more space so nicely like a play. I have this my worn for a very long time and I love looking at this painting every time. So it can be extended to read your space or event gifted to your friends. And he examined what exciting gift during this busy season. So really take advantage of this flood, do this and let me know how it goes. 3. Acrylic Art Supplies: Hi. In this video I am going to show you all the art supplies that you would be needing for creating today's painting. So here is my canvas board. I am using a canvas board for this class. This is 11 by 14 inches Canvas. Okay? And you're going to be needing some acrylic paints. So I will be using this Spivey acrylic, acrylic colors from the delight. And the main color that you need for this class is this one till blue. And I'm really glad that this brand that I use, the ring discolored directly, but I know many brands will not have this deal do callow directly present in it. So if you don't have this kind of what you can do is you can mix Prussian blue adopting and white together to prepare this color. Obviously more of white, very less pressure and blueberry lists of dark dream. So this is like one of the main colors that we will be using in today's class. And the other colors that you need is white, black. White black. And other than that, you need for colors, steel blue, dark green. Surname of the shed. And you need cro, yellow. And you need dark brown. In sometimes it would be called bonds, CNR also. So whichever brand you are using accordingly, you can choose the colors a little bit shed different won't make much of difference, but the most important color is the color for this painting. Okay? And then you're going to be needing some of the acrylic brushes. So this is the branch that I'm gonna be using for this size canvas. It's size ten. And I'm keeping a too small round brushes. E1 is a little bigger and another one is a little bit more liner brush for doing the fine lines and stuff. So these are the three brushes that I'm gonna be using and the knife, The most important thing for this, for this painting, this is an Ipad I'll be using for creating the textures of the mountains, of the snow peaks. Okay? And with that, you need a Glass photo, sounds, tissue papers, and a plate to mix your paint on. So I'm going to be using this, replay it for today's class. Alright, so now coming to the point where if you want to create this painting on a big size Canvas, all you need is, is pretty much the same stuff, just a big size canvas, whichever size you want to work on. So for the size that I have showed you that one that I have worked on, which is three feet by two feet. For that, I have used the size knife. Ok, you can see the difference in size. So this is exactly that. This will work exactly the same on the big side scammers. And I have used this brush, which is pretty big. It's easy to cover bigger area on a bigger size canvas. And you can use it because they insisted on brush as well. So these are the three things that you would need if you want to work on the big side Cadmus. So to learn this painting, I would definitely recommend trying it on asthma inside Canvas or even smaller if you have something and learn the techniques and then you can try it on the big side slide. Alright, so see you in the next video for starting our painting. 4. The Base Layer: We stopped by unwrapping my canvas. Ok, now, in the very first step, we are going to take the collective and white on our plate. And all I'm going to do is take a flat brush, take us eddies, which is proportionate to your canvas. And all I'm going to do is deal with the strokes and everything does not matter. All you have to do is completely avoided the whole canvas with this D almost. Consider this almost like JSON, the canvas, but instead of using a white Jew, so I am just printing it on deal. So this will act as our background for the entire painting. As you can notice, I am painting from the top down, but it really does not matter. You can paint it how ever you want whichever strokes directions you wanna take. Have fun in this process because there is really nothing much here other than just using a rash on the canvas and applying the color. In that time was has been being dead. What they generally like doing is faint little Age on the side of the canvas as well, which is probably one or two millimeter wide. But if you're working on a street to Canvas, you can paint whatever thickness you have on the side of the canvas. And if you're painting on a paper, you can ignore this tip. It just makes them for me. It just makes my painting looks really cool on when it is painted on the side. Now we will start painting our actual actual steps on the canvas. So what has happened now is in this, during this time of covering the canvas, tool has completely dried now as you know, acrylic being things, being said, drive pretty fast. So now I am going to paint the clouds in the sky, but my white is not going to blend in with the T Let the background. So that is why I am gently applying a very thin layer up till mocking out the horizontal so that I know till how much I can use as the sky. So as you can see from the little bit of color change, how much I have added the T. And now I'm just picking up a little bit of white. Don't take up too much and very gently create the clouds. Now you see, since I have a width d in the background, the white is kind of blending in with the, with the deal. And it's not really prominent to weight. So the weight is pretty much blended into the sky. And that is how you create a very realistic, fluffy cloud which is not very prominent yet, looks very realistic. I'm holding my brush really, really gentle. As you can see. I'm not putting a lot of pressure because if you put a lot of pressure, the white will be dominant white, but we don't want very prominent white. So just go very gentle and who's the bottom of their curves? You just blend it off a little bit with the teal so that it's more white on the outer area and towards the inside area. It's kind of blended with the deal, with the background. Any ship that who wish to give to your clouds. It does not have to be exactly similar to what I am doing. And now all I'm doing is continuing with the same brush without washing AT tied a little bit of white and I am just giving a horizontals tool in the horizontal plane below where basically painting the lake. After adding white keep editing exhibit more of the Docker scholar to blend it with the bottom layer. So I blended a quite a bit of white with the background that you can clearly see the difference in the follow from the sky area. It is pretty much lighter. And now we have linked to create water lines, which is horizontal, whites talks but not very prominent. So you can see in the, towards the center of the canvas I am adding all the whites jokes. I'm not really taking them all the way to the site, sticking to the same area. Same trade-off though, canvas and adding white, put it into strokes. Baby agent installed very loosely. Num, sap green on and with the same brush without washing it, we had the brush. I'm just taking a white and clean. I'm just going to add it below the horizontal line just to give the shadow deflection of the trees that's going to come up on the top a little later. So we could have done this later also, but I just wanted to do it at one so that we don't have to revisit this place again. All right. Now I took a little bit of black on my plate. Again, I'm using the same brush. I have not watched my bed sheet. So on the same branch and picking up little bit of black and creating the mountain siloed. So you see the black is monthly blood because of all the palace already present in my brush from before. And I'm using the age of the flat brush to create the, the outline of the mountain. But if you feel it's a bit difficult for you to do, you can use the small brush also to create the outline and then fill it up with a, with a flat brush. So all I'm doing is taking up quite a bit of black and adding from the top. And I don't have too much of beam to embed brush if you can see it's kind of giving me broken lines. It's not really a solid color because we don't want to add too much of Black. So just enough black to be able to cover the top area off the mountain. Go slowly over here, make sure you don't go outside the line. Now we're not going to come all the way to the bottom. Just little bit towards the talk. I added quite a bit of black. As you can see, again, I don't have too much of paint in my brush. Now I picked up a little bit of detail on the same brush. I am picking up a little bit of T and blending this top black with the bottom blue. Because you can see the bottom area of the mountain. It's steel color right from the back row. All I'm trying to do is blending that black to blue. So by Raphael Bras straight nose because it will have a lot of black. You don't want so much of black, because if you have so much of black, you, it'll be very difficult for you to blame him. So WIPO fueled brush and we're not washing because we don't want absolute theme that we want a little bit of black to be there. And then all we're doing is taking up a lot of deals and blending it. What's the bottom area? That's all for this day. 5. Snow Texture with Knife: All right, so in this step, I'm going to show you how to create the snowy peaks of the mountain. So as you can see, I've switched to my table rather than doing it on the Israel. Because if I do it on the table, you will be able to see a really good view of how I'm doing it. So grab your ninth and all I'm doing is have picked up little bit of white on the backend, backside of the ninth. And don't pick up too much of way, become absolutely list so that you and going on the mountain, as you can see, I'm not placing my life too hard on the canvas. I'm kind of lifting it, keeping it a little bit of lifted up from the canvas so that while I'm touching, it's creeping was broken lines. And those broken lines are the lines that we really want to create this snow-covered peaks. You don't want to add a white on the canvas. So to be able to get that effect, all you have to do is pick up spins and don't put too much pressure welcoming on the campus and you see those beautiful broken lines of the peaks are being covered. Okay? So now all you're doing is we divide them out into two sides, right? One is right-side, one is left side. So on the right side we went completely with white. And now on the left side we are going in, going in with a mix of white and till. So you see I'm mixing up little bit of YTM till and doing the exact same thing on the left side. That is how you create the three-dimensional effect of the mountain. It's really easy if you just watch it once you'll understand how easy it is and you can create it with any other colour combination also, if you want to. The trick is not picking up too much paint and not applying it too harshly on the canvas. Hold your knife really loose so that it gives you those broken lines. Whose broken lines are the, what are the key for creating this kind of fixtures of the mountain peaks? You might have to go to a lot of time to pick up the paint because we are picking up really less paint on the knife. So you have to go multiple banks, but that's fine. But it's really important to have really less sprint. Also one more thing to keep in mind. You don't want to cover up the entire black background that you have the or the black that we have done in the mountain initially, right? So that is why the broken lines are important so that the black shoes through you don't want to call it the black thing, just an exhibit off it should be visible. You see the white on the right side. The left side. It gives such a three-dimensional structure of the mountain. And that looks so gorgeous. So we're going to go down all that we have created. What I'm doing is I'm using the attribute of the different textures of the mountain because if you continue using one should only those alternate palace. Alright, now I'll show you one thing that I've seen. A common mistake that happens in my physical classes that I've noticed is that people who add too much of white and blue and they kind of kind of cover up the entire Black from the background. So if justice you have happened to do that, what you can do is wipe off your knife completely and just stick absolutely little bit of black. And just go little bit wherever you need to add a bit of black. You see the ages of my mountains are completely covered. So all I'm doing is adding a tiny bit of black on the ages. But even in the center also, if you need to add a bit of black, you can do that, but make sure that the behind layers have dried. Otherwise it will mix up with the lights and give away greenish look room one day. So I don't necessarily have to do that, but I'm just doing a little bit to show you how you can go ahead with this process by a tiny bit of black here and there little bit. If you feel you're covered up your black too much. Off this debt. 6. Distant Greens: Now in this step, we are going to create some of the greens. So we will start with doing the distant greens, which are just at the bottom of the mountain. So for that, I'm going to pick out she colors dark green, step cream, chrome, yellow, and a little bit of brown, bond Sienna. So these are the four colors that we're going to use. And a bit of lag also maybe which I already have on the plate. Now I'm starting off with my small brush and black and creating always in line just above the lake. Now once the black line is picked up a little bit more of increasing line on the top. So I'm mostly going in horizontal direction at this point. And now before completing the area where your all I'll do is go down and cleared the two big chunks of land on the lake. So draw it nicely. We go small brush so that you know where the land is going to be. Few see the two pointers tips towards pointing at each other. They are not at the same level. If you see the left one is a bit higher than the right one. Okay. Now, gently fill it up completely with black. All right, so now the portions are completely covered in black. Now, switch to our a flat brush so you'll see it's pretty much I kept it outside. I am using black, green and growing dabbing on top of that line be created. So you'll see I'm just Dabbing my brush very gently to create that leaf-like external on the distant ones. Now, all you have to do is just change the colors and textures is automatically going to get formed with a flat brush. So now I picked up a bit of yellow. So anytime you're picking any color to be blue, this kind of pictures Keep in mind that you have to pick up really less bent. Because if you pick up a lot of beam, then distinction won't fall. Also c, I am switching between the colors. So in some places I'm going with yellow. So I'm not taking one color and going all over from left to right. So I'm just doing some colors in some areas, so, and I'm adding little bit of Sap Green then sum of dark green and I will not wash my brush. So what will happen as a result is all colors will start blending with each other and start giving little different colors also at different basis. We want to keep it look realistic. So that's why we will not add too much of color in one place and keep visiting all the colors. Also remember one thing not to do forcefully on your canvas. So while doing this tip holder brush very, very loosely so that the fixtures are formed. Just to be formed on the grass of greens. You really need to hold your brush loosely. And that's how you will create amazing, amazing textures of green soil here. So I am, I have a little yellow and my brush and I'm just typing it. He literally bitumen there to add little touches of yellow. Now with little bit of green leftover on my brush. I am very much with the dry brush and doing some strokes below in the water area to show the reflection. In this state, you don't want to have too much of a Antonio brush. If you have too much of Spain to, you can just wipe it off on the tissue paper like me that you have very little spins. And you just give this vertical strokes from the horizontal line downward. Again while doing the reflection, also make sure you're using the similar kind of colors that you have added on the beams on the top. So wherever there is more yellow, I will add more yellow on the reflection part as well. No, I'm just picking absolutely. List. And just in-between the trees that we did, it's not going to be visible too much. Just in between all the trees that we did. I'm just not too much. And like I did in the previous staples of just adding little buoyancy Anna in the deflection area as well. Wherever I had brown on the top area. As you can see, I am repeating the steps here and there wherever I feel like adding a little bit more colors to understand the concept and then try doing it in your own way. Doesn't have to be exactly what I am doing it you can add a little bit different colors wherever you like. Also remember when you are adding the stick shoes, one node adding so much that the year is completely gone. Through all my pictures, you can see that you can see the behind layer also little bit. So which means you should not add too much of paint while doing this. Very less paint. And you go very gently. And that's how all the colors are visible or the laser visible. And the textures looks. Alright, so now we're done with creating all the greens. Now switch to your thin brush, round small brush. And all we're going to do is mix up a little bit of black and brown and create a light, a dark brown color. And we're going to create all the branches very gently popping out through the green bushes below the mountain. So do as much branches you wanna do. And don't do them to dogs because they are at a distance. Sorry about my hand covering up most of the techniques. But there is actually not much technique here. As you can see here. All I am doing as taking some lines out and dividing the ends into two. And that's it. We are pretty much done with this step. In the next step, we are going to create the same greens on these two black lands that we have created at the bottom. 7. Pine Trees: All right, so in this step, we are going to create the pine trees on the right side land. So I'll make sure you watch it very carefully first and then start doing it. So you can learn the techniques of creating the pine tree by watching it first. So all I'm doing is starting with creating the main branch of the binary. Okay, now switch to the applied brush. And he got mostly black and dark gray because we are going to create a Doppler. So now it's going to go up in a pyramidical structure. So i'm starting from the bottom going up, or you can also start from the top. That's totally fine, just to give it the shape. I, I like to start from the bottom so that I know how much to go. But all I am doing as undergoing in horizontally ways in a zigzag fashion and keep going up. And the picture that I'm trying to create is pretty much the same as what I did in the bushes in the background, which is basically paid of dabbing with the age of the flat brush. As you can see as I'm going up, the, the breadth of buying tree is kinda reducing to go conical at the top. Very less pressure on the canvas again and go very gentle. I know I'm doing it pretty fast, but you can just watch it quickly before starting doing it so that you get a complete idea of how I am doing it. As I'm moving higher towards the top of the flat brush, it's kind of getting difficult to do with a flat brush. So let's switch to the small brush to go really gently on top there and so that it no, it doesn't go out too much and I can make a pointed tip on the top. Also notice one thing that I am kind of expanding exhibit of leaves on the side. These are all to give the shape of the binary. Ok, so the structure is pretty much done. Now we will do the second one. And for this one I'm starting on the top with the small brush. So you can see Buddha ways of doing it starting from the bottom, going higher or starting from the top going down, you can do whichever you feel it optimal. But the one thing that I've noticed in my physical classes is that when people start doing from the job, they have no idea of how to go broader as going downwards and while reaching down the goal really a lot more than is required. So that's why I always suggest starting from the bottom so that you know how much it, complete expansion of the tree has to be done and they nucleate gradually start going on the top. So sure, we are coming from the top-down approach. And pretty much technique is just the same. And at this point we are doing only black, mostly black with a little green. So green is not given much visible. Okay, so know that Buddha structures are pretty much done. I will start taking a little bit of yellow on the same brush without washing it and start giving a little bit of pictures. Now for the top area again, I switched to this small brush so that I don't go outside with a flat brush. So the way to create the binary and give it shape and texture is doing a really dark layer. And on top of that, you go with the lighter tone and add a bit of texture on top of it in the same direction, in the same way how you've done the previous one. All we're going to do is go on top of it with a lighter lighter colors. Again, you don't want to completely override the background color. You want to go with, with the lighter tone really lists so that the previous cochlea is visible through it. That is when it starts looking really nice, you don't want to cover all the black ones that you did at the back. The moment I reach towards the bottom, I am switching to my flat brush because it's kind of easier to go with a flat brush on a broader area rather than me, the small brush. Okay. Now the same thing on the second tree now, on top of it, with the even more shed, we're using more of yellow. And doing the exact same thing you do with the different trees. Remember whenever you are doing that too. But do not covering up your behind us completely. Okay, a little bit. Now, I'm adding some final touch ups to the tree and just extending some of the leaves on the side so that it doesn't look like a straight line on the side. So on the site that leaves should be extending out a little bit on both the sides. So that's the little touch-up I'm giving, just to give the holistic field of the tree so that you know, the older tree structure looks good. So this is just an optional step. You can just add a little bit. And that we come to the end of step four. 8. Green Bushes - Part 1: Alright, so in this step we are going to create all the bushes on the lens and create the reflections of it. So this tape is going to be pretty much the same as the step where we did the background bushes below the mountain. So it's pretty much the same mix of colors in the dabbing technique and then creating the reflections below. So I'm not going to tell you much over your, I'll just give little tips here and there, but enjoy watching and do it yourself. So since this land is pretty much closer, I am adding a bit of white. White is one color that I did not add well, adding window behind layer and as in the one below the mountain. But always Sure, I am adding little bit of white to mixing white with green to make it light green, even with yellow as well. Remember, all you're doing is adding different colors in different places. You're not adding same color all throughout. That is how you show the cluster of bushes. And now go vertical directions from the top and create the lip reflections. We will follow the color combination from the top. It doesn't have to be exact. We can just make it look really nice. We start repeating the exact same state on the left side. One quick tip that I wanted to give in all depending on the size of the brush that I'm not using the broadside. I'm not using all the time accordingly to make sure that you are not doing too much or too little. Okay. So we pretty much did the same thing on the left side. Lender's when on the topic treated the bushes and we printed the reflections down in vertical reactions. Now, we're going to do something extra that we did not do in the behind a bush is below the mountains. All I'm going to do is keep my flat brush aside and switch to my round brush, small round brush, and do another layer of texturing because these lands are pretty much in the front, right. So we're going to add a little bit more extreme with a small brush and by creating small dots. So that way we are going to add more definition. Do the bushes in this one. So do it in whichever direction you like, whichever area as you like, as you can notice, I would not do it in all over the area because if you do it all over, the beauty of this small dots that I'm creating will be gone. So this is pretty much like the wild flowers that grows in the bushes. So that is the thing that I'm going to do on the right side, as well as on the left side. The colors that I'm using in this tape are pretty much lighter colors because our background is pretty dark, so we don't want to use too much of dark colors. So I'm mixing yellow, white, and green together to get the lighter tone. Just keep on creating thoughts that can give you the desired outcome. 9. Green Bushes - Part 2: We will keep doing the exact similar thing on the left side land. So keep creating small dots are, I'm not really using much of green. It's mostly yellow and white. Moral weight in some places more off yellow, white in some places. So keep changing the colors. Don't just keep using one is mixing up. Some time I pick up the yellow sometimes so that you'll get a variety of colors while creating this kind of flowers. Okay. Now I'm switching to my fine liner brush to create some of the branches. Just like the way we did it in the, behind a row of bushes below the mountain. So just mix up brown and black and create some branches. One of the tips of creating juices have good amount of water on your brush while picking up the color that will make it travel really smooth flow and you can create the dangerous really well. Now well creating the branch of the main trunk of the tree. We want to make one straight line all the way from the top to bottom or gave. So break it down in some places. Back makes it look really because, you know, some of the leaves are actually coming in front. So that's how you, that's what you are basically trying to do by creating the group and lines. All right, now I am creating all the small branches coming out from the bush. Now we're going to create one branch broken out in between the branches you create. It just makes it look really nice, like a lot of branches coming out. So have fun in the step though Hadoop has many you would like to create. There is no less or more as many you feel like adding. You can do that rather than following me exactly. Use your own imagination. Or if you have any pictures, you can refer to that as well. But just play around and create some more branches in the background. That's plenty of branches done. So we're pretty much done with this step. 10. Rocks, Water and Final Words: All right, so now we have come to the final step of the painting. And now we're going to create a small land in between these two lands on both the sides. So the concept is pretty much the same. You first add a little bit of black to create the land structure. And then you go on top of it with green and yellow to create this model leaves fixtures and create the bushes. And finally create the reflections and benches. So pretty much what we did when creating the reflection. I am using my small brush rather than the flat brush because I don't, I feel like I have a little bit more control on what I'm doing if I'm using this model rational because this is smaller area. So I did not want to use this flat brush for this one. But again, depending on the size of the canvas you're using. If you're using really big size, then you might want to use the flat brush. This is 11 by 14 inches. Just like I said that, you know, with a small brush, I have more control on cleaning the deflections. So what I'm going to do is I am going to create a few more reflections on the side lands. Just to enhance the colors a little bit more as of no, it's just greenish. So all I'm doing is adding different colors just below that yellow, more, adding more yellow below the green, adding more. Deflection. Looks very gorgeous. Just whatever you are seeing on the top. Now, I waited sometime for though we'll focus area to trial before bleak the branches. So that is why I am doing now. Because if you do it immediately, it might get mixed up with the greens. So let the green triangle. Now I'm going to create a very interesting stapling the painting that's going to elevate your painting into a completely different level all together. So all you're doing is just adding a black line between the land and the reflection. So if you notice that I am not adding up bland straight line, but I'm just kind of making it leaky. Boom the line. And I am making it go in line with the land, the bottom of the land. And later on we're gonna come and add some Brooks to it, which is so easy, it might look so complicated, but with a few easy steps, we're going to update amazing rocks. So it's the same thing with the back we're going to do on the left side and land as well. And that same land to also Alright, so now after adding all the blacks, you mix a little bit of wash off your brush clean and just take little bit of white and brown. And all we're gonna do is go diagonally. Look at the stroke that I'm using. And you're gonna go and add a few lines. It's not going to be very clear line. So make them little bit kind of, you know, blending into the black behind. So that is why we are doing it immediately after that in the black before the black dries completely. So you're just adding these kind of lines in between in a very abstract way. And it's going to give such a good look of jobs. Popping out from the land that we're using is black is also the brown. Black and white makes him but light so you can see it more as a White. So after finishing the lands and the rocks completely dry and then mixed and water. So water is kinda important in this painting. Alright, so now just pick up your white mixed up with water. And all we're gonna do is create some straight lines to create the water lines. Ok, so now this is the only line that I'm doing completely one straight line just at the bottom of the mountain. But after that we're going to do only broken lines. So we're not gonna do like one whole horizontal line, left to right. Okay, so I'm just going to break it down and create some more lines. You have noticed some people tried to do wavy lines also, but somehow I feel straight lines looks much better than the wavy lines, but I leave the decision up to you. If you feel like wavy lines are, you are liking the look of the wavy line. You can do that because it looks pretty as well. Ok? So it really depends on your own personal choices, whatever you feel like doing, you can't do that. Do either straight line or wavy line. And with that, we have pretty much come to the end of this painting. So I hope you really got a good idea or understanding of this painting. The techniques are really easy. They're pretty much just two techniques that you need to learn to master this painting. One is creating the snow picks, another one is creating the leaf excuse with your flat brush and small brush and creating the pine tree. As you can see that it's really easy to do all of it if you just follow along all the steps that I have mentioned in this class. And I would recommend trying it out couple of times. And then you should totally try it on a big Denver's. And if you do that, don't forget to share it with me. I mean, you can also share the small painting that you are doing. I would love to see how you guys are doing it. How you created this beautiful painting. This has been one of the highest requested painting of oil dying. I have taught this painting in physical classes also a lot. And people love this painting because I think somehow the vibrancy of this teal color that aqui scholars always so attractive. I have it on my wall and I love looking at it all the time. So let me know how you enjoy the class. Show me your class project, how you create this beautiful painting, how you hang it up on your wall. So share, click, Take a beautiful picture and shared it under the projects. Thank you for joining this class and I will see you in the next class. Take care and have a very lovely creative week ahead.
