I'm an IT Engineer by qualification and Artist at heart. After a few years of corporate life, I've moved on to my true life calling which is art, specifically to paint. Painting was my first love, ever since my childhood I used to paint with my grandfather which fascinated and gave me joy.
I resumed painting in mid-2019. Initially, I started learning by watching other artists on social media platforms and started painting in my drawing book. In no time graduated to a larger canvas. My primary genres are acrylic painting and watercolor floral painting. Under acrylic, I love painting landscapes. I look forward to learning each day for the rest of my life and share my experiences by coaching others and help them learn different techniques and styles of acrylic and other art forms. I be...

1. Introduction: When we talk about nature, the color that we automatically visualize is green. But are all the trees green? I, floss green is sky green, is soil green. Not exactly. Still somehow, nature and greenery always goes hand in hand. Ever wonder why it stick tiny leaves which paint the nature with its color and the nature happily obliges. The leaves also teaches us to be humble and go with the flow. Hello friends. My name is boring is Anna, and I'm an acrylic artist. And today we'll be painting these four beautiful leaves, more depths. And we'll be learning some basic techniques. Painting step-by-step. All the four bookmarks. This is the first one, then the second bookmark, the top bookmark, and finally the fourth one. And lastly, we'll learn how to protect the bending from dust. And finally, you are ready with a full view bookmarks. So let's start with it. 2. Materials Required: Hello friends. Welcome back. So let's first discuss about the materials which we'll be using. So these are the four paintings which we'll be doing. So these four paintings have done on the MDF board. So let's first discuss about the materials. So this is the MDF board on which I have done the bookmark painting. So if you don't have MDF board, you can always use cardboard or 300 GSM watercolor paper or some take paper, but you can use for painting. And these are the brushes. This I'll be using for varnishing. And these round brushes. Then Bristol brush, then comes the flat brush. And then again, the smaller round brush. These brushes I will be using for my complete for bookmark paintings. Apart from that, these are the brands which I'll be using, Winsor and Newton Gamblin. You can use any of the brands which you have. And apart from that, the container, water container, then the tissue paper for cleaning the brush, then the ballot for pulling the colors. And lastly, this liquid dx1 niche for protecting our bookmark. So these are default bookmarks which will be bending. So let's start with first the basic techniques. 3. Basic Techniques: Hello friends. Welcome back. So let's start discussing about the colors. So these are the colors which I'll be using. These five gallows. Permanent green, sap green, lemon green, black and to Daniel weight. And the brushes which I'll be using here, this is the Bristol flat brush. Then this round brush. Then again smaller round brush, size 01 flat brush sets of size one. So let's start with some basic techniques which I'll be using in my bookmark paintings. So in most of the paintings I'll be using this round brush. So let's start with depth-first bookmark. So for the first bookmark, I'll just be using the round brush. And I'll just press and release the brush. Just press and softly releasing the brush to give the shape of the leaf. This is the first bad enough leaf which I'll be creating one, my first bookmark. Just press and release. Now for the second bookmark. Here also, I'll be using same round brush. And I'll be creating a better shape, a nice bed dose shape. And I'll just be blocking that area. And same baton I will be creating on the second bookmark. So you can see mostly I'll be using this round brush. Now comes the third button, which is the banana leaf pattern. Here I'll create a shape of the banana leaf and then block in the color. And using the layering method, I will create some textures on that leaves. Here I'm just showing you one color, but in the upcoming bookmark painting, we will be using all these five colors. So I'm just showing you the technique, how we will be using. And that my flat brush, I'll be creating the patterns. So just small, small lines, small, small shades you can say I'll be creating. So just stopping and releasing it softly. I'm not pressing the brush hard. It's just ready light to give a nice texture to that leaf. So this BAD done, I'll be grading on that leaf. Now finally, the last one. That is the, so this is the baton which I'll be creating on the banana leaf. Now comes the last pattern of the leaf. And this also I'll be creating the shape of the leaf, just a rough shape and blocking in the color and creating the lines. And then this, I'll be using two brushes, that is one round brush for blocking. And the other brush is the breast to brush does quite hard brush. And I'll be using your dry brush technique and just dabbing the brush very lightly to create a nice texture on the top of the leaf. So this bat done will be creating on these fault bookmark painting. Just small, small dots nucleate and creates a very nice texture to it. So these are the four leaves which I'll be creating on all the four bookmarks. So let's start with our bookmark painting. 4. Base Painting: Hello friends, welcome back. So let's start with a first part of the painting. So these are the four bookmarks which we'll be painting. So these I have done on the MDF boards. These are different, different leaf patterns which we'll be painting here. So here first we will be doing the base coding. And then once the base has been dried, we'll be using the colors to create patterns. So this is the MDF board, which I'll be using year. So one side, I have already painted, I'll be doing on the other side of the painting. So you can also do on the board decides if you're using the MDF board and if you are using tick Paypal or something you can also use you can paint both sides. But tried to use MDF board or cardboard or some watercolor paper 300 and plus gs and people to create these bookmarks. So here I'm using my flat brush and the black acrylic colors. As I'm not having the Jesu black jazz also, I'll be just painting the base with my acrylic color. I'm just adding little bit of water to it to make it little bit more fluid. So now we'll just apply this black color on the MDF board. And if you having black, just so pleased, use black gesso for covering that area, for covering the background area. And if you're not having black just so the acrylic black color is fine. Just blocking that whole area. Make sure that you cover each and every corner of the bookmark nicely. And you have to use tic color. It should not be transparent or translucent. It should be thick, acrylic or just saw whichever you are using. If you think that the base layer is little bit DO translucent or transparent, you can always apply an add-on code on it. So make sure that all the corners are covered properly and that thing is lived. And should not be a thin colored, should be a thick black color, take black coating. And it should not be transparent or translucent. Should, should be a tick. So same thing I'll be doing on the other three boats. So you can see I have already done the other three. So I'll wait for them to dry and then I'll start with the painting. So this should be dried first and then only you have to paint the motives. So let's start with it. So let's start. 5. Fern Leaves Bookmark : Hello friends, welcome back. So let's start with the first painting. So these are the colors which I'll be using for auf was painting. So let's start with the first color that is the sap green. Here I'm using my round brush, which is of size 4. So first base color I'm using here is sap green and I'll just be creating the leaves. These are the background leads. So it does little bit darker, shade. So I'm just pressing and releasing. Just pressing and releasing. So it should be in the opposite direction. So I'll just change my directions because the round part should be outward and the thin barge should be inside that stem. So just creating the least baton. It's okay if it does, if that leaf has turned out to be in the opposite direction. Because this leads ultimately will cover that the bandwidth used, the layering technique. Just creating the background leaves. I don't want to fill the entire area with the leaf patterns when I'll be leaving the spaces of black, also black, black ground so that it looks more realistic form. And the background leaves are also visible. In this. I haven't used much of water in my acrylic paint. I've used the complete take. Just my brush is wet and that too. I have removed excess of water from the brush. And I'm just creating those leaf patterns. Just pressing and releasing it softly, just pressing and releasing. So this BAD done, I'll create on the entire bookmark. So one in the downward direction, one in the up direction. So indifferent, different directions. I'm trying to create those leaves. And it's a very simple form of painting which anyone can bend. Even if you are a beginner and you have just stopped at your acrylic painting. You can try it. It's very easy and you just need a little bit of factors. Holding your brush and you can do it easily. So it's a very simple technique which I have used in this bookmark painting. I mostly create realistic painting. But this time I have used simple technique to create these bookmarks so that it is easy for you to create it. I didn't want it to be complex enough. So just creating patterns. So in the whole bookmark painting, we will be using layering technique. This is another technique that we'll be using your so first base layer, then, which is black, then another layer which is off leaves, that is a Docker and shared. Then the another layer which is little bit too light so that it creates a nice depth to it. So once this background bad Dennis, done, we'll start with the lighter color. This is the permanent green. And I'll be adding little bit of yellow to it to give a nice greenish shade. So just creating the lines and trying to create the lines which are not overlapping, those leaves pitch up behind. That stems. So I'm just creating this dam where there's a black area. So I'm just creating same bat done which I used in the background. So just pressing and releasing it softly. I'm not pressing the brush very hard. So it's very light pressure. And I'm just trying to create those patterns which I have created. And the bought them, adding little bit of lemon yellow to it. So if you feel color starts drying off, you can definitely add a little bit of water do word. And if you're using fluid acrylics stand, water plays. Water does not play any role in it. So it's better you use little bit awful thick acrylic colors. You can use any acrylic colors, any brand acrylic colors you want. But it should be thick enough so that the colors appear very brightly. So creating the same bat done. And the leaves coming out from different sections of the area. So all the leaves are on Northern same directions. I'm trying to create the leaves in different directions. So if you don't have the permanent green, you can obviously use any green and can add lemon yellow. And to make the green a little bit darker, you can add always black color to it. So you can see I've just drawn that bookmark and creating the leaves so that it does easily visible to you. So just enjoy the process of creating the leaves. And make sure don't fill the entire area with that green color because it will not create the depth if we're recovering the entire background with the lighter green color. So we need to leave some spaces for the background. Leaves also to be visible. Now, here I'll be adding little bit of white to it. To give a nice shade to that leaves. You can see it's quite a lot of white. So just remove X is a white. And then again I use so it's quite a lot of white saw and just taking a little bit of white, just removing excess color and again using the permanent green color. And on just the Beaufort, I'm taking white color. Just did just do 10 dof white on the tip of the brush. So oil brush, I have debited and do that green color and just the tip of the brush is wet, white. So you can see just the tip of the brush. I have to cover it with white if you feel that there are lots of weight on that leaves just overdo that. Like in acrylics, we can always overdo the painting. And I, you can see that I'm not covering the entire leaf, just few leaves, which I'm highlighting it with white color. So that gives a nice depth to that painting. So just enjoy the process of painting. If you feel that the color is a little bit drowsy, you can always overdo that. You can create to-do three layers of the painting. So I'm just trying to create, again, see some of the leaves are transient swam or we're doing it. So this bookmark is almost complete. So this is one of your project. If you do try then do Dabney on my Instagram account that has more neon gallery. I'd love to see your projects. So this will be one of your projects. So you can see I'm just overdoing that. I feel that there's lot of white used over there. So it's almost done. So you can do these spending on both the sides so that it looks more prettier. And you can use both the sides of the bookmark. Just know that off. Shade more to those leads which are a little bit of transient shade. So it's done. So let's move on to our next bookmark. 6. Lotus Leaves Bookmark First Layer: Hello friends, welcome back. So let's start with second bookmark. So this is a second baton which we'll be painting. So first we'll be doing the base layer. So I'm just creating a rough outline with the white color. I've just taken a little amount of white and I'm just creating a Ralph outline of the leaves, which I'll be painting. I'm using my brush to create a rough sketch. You can also use your benzo or any color to create those sketch before you start painting. So I'm just creating the rough sketch of the leaves, which I will be painting. So you're also, you can see that I have not covered the entire area. I'm leaving some blank spaces in between because we have to overlap the leaf pattern also here. So first I'll be doing the base layer. So here also I'm using sap green and I have mixed a little bit of white to it. So more of SAP and less of white color. I mixed. So I'll just cover the shapes which I have created. I'm just blocking that that shape. But this color. You can also do some modification if you want, you want to change the shape of the color. This is the right name. You can change the shape of the color. And if you see that the color is drying, then you can add little bit of wonder do it. But don't make it to 10. Otherwise the color will be Zhuangzi. So similarly LB blocking the entire shapes, which I have created that this color. I have added white to it. So just enjoy the process. Hi. So finally, just the last leaf is left. So once you are done with the blocking, if you see that the colors a little bit of transparent, just apply another quote over it to create a nice thick color on the top of the background. Because your eye can see that some of the leaves a little bit lighter in shape and a little bit transparent. So here what I will do is I will apply another quote over them. Just adding the same color. And I'm just on transparent. So now, after doing the second layer, you can see the color difference, how it is coming up. So if the color is fine in one go, it's fine. But if it looks like it's very thin and transparent, you can always apply the second layer of color to it. So that gives a nice background color of the leaves. Now with my smaller round brush and just be creating the outlines of the leaves. So if you see that the color is take you just add little bit of water to white and just create nice 10 lines around the leaf shapes. Just outlining the outer area with white color. So if you feel that it is too bright, you can always add little green to it, little green texture to it, so that, that white, bright color does not appear. So you can always add a tint of green to white to give a nice light green shade to the outer background. So once we are done with the outlining, but we'll create a good bit of texture to the leaves that are restored brush. So I've just outlined the entire lives. Now. Now I'll be using my Bristol flat brush to create the texture on the leaves. So this is the completely dry brush and I'm using little bit of yellow and mixing it with the same green color. It's completely dry color and small, small dots on the boundary. So don't press it very hard and should be very light so that you can see it's small dots appearing on the surface. I'm just creating those textures on the boundary of the leaves. Not on the entire surface, just on the boundary. So it gives a very nice look to d leaves, realistic. It looks real when you apply this type of texture on the leaves. Once done, again, I'll be using my smaller round brush to create the veins of the leaves with white Gallo. So first I'll be using the dots. So you're again see I've used lots of what does with spreading, so I will just remove it with the tissue paper. So I'll use white color and just apply in-between and the middle area of the leaf. Just to take white color and small dot to that, smudging, the outer area of the subchondral, but just smudging the outer area, but very little amount of color. Now let's start creating the winds of the leaves. So very thin lines, thin white lines which I'm creating. So you can see these winds are also having branches coming out. So I'm using very little amount of fluid white and just creating the lines all over like we used to create wheels and create lanes. So these are not straight lines, but these are of different shapes. So you can see these are not completely white. They're also good at White and creating small branches coming out of those veins. So similarly we'll do for the rest of the leaves. So this is the first layer that we have created. Then once these leaves are drying, we will again create same burden on the top of these leaves. So let's first finish this. And then we'll be creating again using layering method. Again, one more layer of leaves using same baton. So you can see almost all the leaves sudden. So now we'll create the second layer. 7. Lotus Leaves Bookmark Final Layer: Hello friends, welcome back. So let's start with us second part. So this first layer of pattern we have done. Similarly. We'll create the second layer on the top of this. So same technique I'm using here. Again, I'm drawing a rough sketch with my round brush, like we did earlier in the first layer. So on the top of it, I'm just creating these shapes. I'm using the same technique which I did for the first layer. Just creating the shapes and leaving some black area in between. And then just blocking it with same color. Just adding more of SAP and a tint of white to it and just blocking that area which we have outlined it. It's a very simple and basic technique of creating layers on top of the other. So it gives a very nice depth and realistic depth to the painting. So just blocking, adding it's more of white, I'm just adding more of green to it. So all these blocking barges done that sap green and attend off white. So you can see how nicely the depth as being created. Like one leaf on the top of the other and gives a very nice and really good effect. Do the baton. I'm creating some leaves on these sides which are left little black. So now I'm using my smaller round brush and just outlining the leaves. And this leaf pattern I have added little bit of yellow also do it because I don't want it to be completely white. So it's little bit of yellow and white and green mix. So if your color is, then you can always add little bit of water to it. So just outlining those leaves. So it's almost the same technique which we have used earlier in the first layer. Just the layering the leaves on the top of the leaf. So now creating small dots in between. Now same with my bristle brush. I will be creating textures. So you have to use completely dry brush and a little bit off yellow, white mix. And just Ring the outer area, but very light pressure do it. So there'd be it a very soothing texture to the leaves. You don't have to press it very hard, very lightly. You have to press the corners of the leaves and you don't have to cover the entire area. Just the corners. Now I'm just trying to smudge the outer area, a small amount of white to it. Just smudging the outer circle. Now let's start creating the rains. But the same ten lines. And these lines are also having branches. So I hope you enjoying the process of painting the bookmark. And this will be another second project, which I'd love to see from you guys. And do dad me on my Instagram and column that is more art gallery. So just to enjoy the process of painting the leaves. So this is almost done. Just a few buds are left. So the ones which I think I like dram just making a good dog because these leaves are on the top off and underneath, so it should be a little bit more highlighted. So I'm just making the edges more white and vibrant. So if you don't have the smaller brush you're going to want to be as you was liner brush for painting the outlines as almost done. So we thought bookmark painting. So let's start with that. 8. Basic Leaves Bookmark: Hello friends. Welcome back. So let's start with Todd bookmark painting. So same gallows which we are using all five colors. So let's start with the first, the base. So here I'm using a black, permanent green and sap green mix. And I will just be creating the leaves shape. I'm not creating any outline or anything. You just need to create one stroke bars to stroke painting of leaves. So I'm just creating the leaves and adding little bit more of sap green because I want a darker color. So just creating the leaf shapes and different directions. All the leaves on Auden same directions and there are different different leaves. Some are big, some are small and of different sizes, and in different directions. So once again, I'll repeat that before starting any bending, make sure that your base color is completely dry. Then only stopped your painting on the surface. So I'm just creating random leaf patterns. This is the first layer which I'm creating. So once we are done with the base leaves, others shadow leaves, we now begin with the, another layer of leaves with a lighter wash of color. I have added permanent green to sap green and the yellow just on the tip of the color. And I'm creating leaves. Can see that I have completely dip the brush in green and on the tip of the brush, I'm using just lemon yellow color and creating the leaves. So I haven't mixed that the yellow color in that. So just think of the color. Just dip off the brush that I'm using, lemon yellow. You see you again. You can see that how nicely the outline is being created when you use lemon yellow on just the tip of the brush. That lemon yellow gives a nice outline to the leaves. So just adding the ammonia low on the tip and then creating the leaves by using two stroke bending technique. So there's not one stroke uses to stroke painting technique. So I won't be covering the entire background. So I leave some black areas well, so with that, black background is also visible. Now I'm taking that white on the tip and just creating some random outlines. But I see that edges are not sharp enough and the leaves are not o visible properly, especially the Doppler leaves. Dust outlining the edges which are not sharp. So this is very simple and basic technique of creating leaves. I looked quite realistic. So now for creating the veins of the leaves, I've just taken black and green to it. Just be clear the lines with my round brush. So taking more of black because that's not visible. So just creating the lines, create lines on all the leaves. So what is the standard will be creating the diagonal of D leaves. So I didn't want the lines to be completely black. So that's why I have added green color to it. So same process, I will get a beating on all the leaves. So now it's finally done. So just highlighting some of the areas but the yellow and green mixture. So now let's start with the droplets on the leaves. To me to be clear denke, by using my same round brush and white. I haven't washed off my brush. I'm just doing the same brush and creating small, small round dots and random shapes. I don't want the droplets to be completely white, so I've left the brush unwashed and then I'm using dating attribute off white and I'm just creating small random dots, repeating the same process on all the leaves. Now once this is done, we'll be using black. And I will be outlining those. We have created. Just again to see I'm just outlining, not just some random, so it goes and just on one side so that it looks like a shadow to it. So again, using same a white and yellow mixture and creating the outline of the leaves so that it does more sharp and visible. So repeating the same technique gone all the leaves. So adding a little bit more white to the droplets. For this bookmark bending is almost complete. So we're going to be doing now the fourth and the last to bookmark bending. So just outlining some of the areas. Again, see. So I'll just remove that to order from the tissue paper and just outlining some of the droplets which are left. So this is complete. So this is Todd bookmarked bending. Now we'll start with our fourth and the last bookmark painting. So this is the one which I created earlier. So this is D. You can see I've done on board decides. So these are all for bookmark. So last one is left. So let's start with that. 9. Banana Leaves Bookmark: Hello friends, welcome back. So let's start with the last bookmark painting. So this is the banana leaf which I'll be painting. So here also, I'm using the size 0 round brush and drawing the rough sketch of the painting. You can use pencil or any other color for drawing the rough sketch material. Rahm, directly using the pinned. Just trying to draw the rough sketch. And same as the previous painting. Start blocking. So before applying any paint, making sure that your background back black color is completely dried up. Then only you start painting the leaves. Otherwise your whole painting will be spoiled. So make sure that your background is completely dried. Drawing as the outlining part is done, we'll start with the create sketch. We'll be using sap green for blocking in. So I'll just take my a bigger round brush. Try to block in the area which I have drawn. Since it is quite dark, I'll add little bit of permanent green also, so that the color is more visible. So I will just block in the entire outline which I have created. At this time. You can also try to redo the outlines by blocking in the gallows. You can change the shape of the leaves if you want. If you have done anything wrong, if you have mistakenly drawn some wrong sketch, then here, this is the best time when you can just overdo it and fill in the colors as per your shape. So just enjoy the process of blocking. And once the blocking is done, we'll do the detailing part. So first I'm just doing the blocking. So you can see the blocking is almost done for the leaves. Now we will be creating the textures using my flat brush, which is of size one. So just trying to create the shape where the colors are a little bit transparent. I'm just trying to fill in that. So now here I will use my flat brush and little bit of yellow added to the same color. And we will be creating details. So now for detailing, I'll be using little bit of lemon yellow and creating ascender line. And then just move the brush diagonally upward. Just dressing and releasing the brush to give a nice shirt to the leaves. Same, I'll do the opposite side diagonally to give a nice texture to the leaves. So adding more of yellow to it and a little bit off wide to give a nice light color shade. Again, I'm using the tip of the brush and moving it into the forward direction. I've just added white on the depth and just moving it in the forward direction. So just adding little bit more of a wide. And again, moving the brush diagonally and using the tip of the brush and moving it upward. Just pressing and releasing just pressing and releasing its ready softly. I'm just pressing the brush and just releasing it. So same technique I'll be using for other leaves, also. Creating such textures gives a nice realistic look to the leaves. And this, if you have lemon green, then a no need of using these gallows. And if you're not having a lemon green Gallo, then try mixing lemon yellow to the permanent green. And you can see how bright the colors. So you can see same technique I'm using on all the leaves, but all are in different directions. So leaves or Northern same direction, somewhat an upward direction, somewhat in downward direction. So depending upon the direction of the leaves, you have to apply the detailing. So just enjoy the detailing process. So once the first level of detailing is done, we will be creating these center line. So here again, I'm using my round brush and adding wage do it. And just creating the center line. It's somewhat how it does, or triangular in shape. It's not completely straight. So our duff steep triangle. Similarly on all the leaves, I'll be creating those lines. Now once it does done, just create more texture to it. And that's a bit of water because the colors drying up. And again, I'll start creating the lines with my round brush to create a nice texture to the leaves. So one layer we have already done, so that doulas which we have already done, one is the bending the code and then the second detailing, and this is detour detailing. So I'm just creating middle but more details to the leaves. So you can see how bright the color is coming up. When the base is dog, it looks really pretty. So. It depends upon your choice. If you want to use black as a base, you can use, you can also use different color as the base. And try creating the bookmark or any other bad duns or any borders, any size. And again, see how nicely the color comes up. Now taking my black and just creating the line in between these stem does making it more. And now using same college I have used earlier. Now it does. Creating it off the leaves. So it's not completely white, it does white mix. So I'm just creating the outline of the leaves. So almost the outline is complete. So I think I left the leaf. So one leaf is not painted, so I'm just using the same color. And a little bit of yellow. Since permanent green and yellow, we've just done, I'm using diagonally, just pressing and releasing, just pressing and releasing and creating smallest lines. I'll be doing for the rest of the leaves also. Hi. So now using the same brush and white color, I'll be just creating the lines which I forgot to create on that leaf. And just more darker lines in the center. There are some lines which are not visible correctly, so I'm just darkening, end up adding a little bit black. And because already green is there, so I'm just adding black to my brush and creating these shades on the leaves. So this is just the layering process. The more you layers the leaves, the more realistic it looks. And again, see how bright it is. So I'm just adding little white and black so that it looks more visible. You can see the leaf pattern more clearly. Again, taking little bit off white and just making the edge more dark so that it is quite sharp and visible. So same thing I'll be doing on the rest of the leaves to create nice lines. On the outer leaf surface. Again, see I've not covered the entire area, black area, so I have left some areas blank so that it does visible. So whenever you are bending, you don't have to cover the entire surface area. You have to leave some area blank so that the background is also visible. So this is, again, your last project. Out of the four bookmark paintings. You can try any one of them or you can try all of them. It's up to you. And finally, our last part is left. That is how to protect our bending. So let's start with that. 10. How To Protect The Art: Hello friends. Welcome back. So finally the last part of the painting that is protecting our painting with a satin varnish. So this is a liquid texts that, and varnish which I'll be using here. I'll just put a few drops of one niche on the bookmark. And with my brush just on the entire area. You don't have to use much of the liquid, just a few drops of it. And you just need to slowly covered the entire area. This not only protects the painting, but also it protects the painting from the dust particles. So it's very necessary when you are doing any bending and acrylics. You want to protect your bending. You have two warning should. So this is the best technique of protecting your paintings. Acrylic. So same thing I will be doing on the other bookmarks. So thank you so much for watching my class and hope to see your project soon.
