1. Mini Introduction: Welcome to my Meany floral bouquets scale shared class. I am now go and miniature artist based in Manila, Philippines. Today's class is extremely special to me because I get to share with you my love for miniature painting. So thank you. And I hope you enjoy it. 2. Materials: The materials that we need are, what are colors? This is Daniel Smith. You can use any brand of your choice. Whatever color Bieber, at least 200 GSM, pointy round brush size 0 or one. What I will be using is from Princeton brush under Heritage Series, and it has size 0. What are for brush gleaning, reusable cloth for when we need to remove exists water. And lastly, patients. 3. Techniques & Drills: Let's begin with a basic wouldn't colored techniques. This is wet and dry. The brush is wet, loaded with valuated water color, and a beeper is dry. The finish will give us his move. Wash. Next is wet and dry. I am wearing the paper and dabbing and stroking valued at watercolors from the branch. Look how to color bleeds. Dry on dry, get pigment with small amount of water, and glide version too wet, dry paper. The texture of this technique is rough and an even. Since we will be using appointee round brush, we might as well do some drills before we start. Here are some strokes that your brush can help you achieve by applying heavy pressure. Make noun strokes, starting from top to bottom. Next are up strokes. Apply light pressure, then start from bottom to top. It's natural for the lines to break. But if you need a little help, then your pinky finger can do the trick. Glide your pinky finger as you do the upstroke. This will help you control loop brush. Now, Let's put these two strokes together. From heavy pressure making a downstroke, transitioning to live pressure, making an upstroke. These are the sea strokes. Like downstrokes, we will apply heavy pressure to make see strokes. It's OK as well if they are imperfect. The most important thing when doing the trills is to know when to apply heavy and light pressure. 4. Water Consistency: How much water do I need? Now was one of my questions when I was starting. So here's a quick reference. D consistency is for when it has more water than the pigment. Sample ratio is five drops of water to one drop of pure pigment. Coffee consistency does have more water then pigment as well, but thicker than T. Sample ratio as four drops of water to one drop of pure pigment. Male consistency sample ratio is three drops of water to one drop of pure pigment, and it goes darker as we lessen the water. Next is cream consistency. It has more pigment than water. Sample ratio is dew drops of water to one drop of beer. Pygmy in debt they guessed is better consistency. Sample ratio is one is to one. 5. Fillers & Leaves: Fillers play an important part when painting flora, okay? Because we get to fill in this basis, we do not want to be crowded by the same set of flowers. These are as Snapdragon, make letter V, and make sure they form a group. The certainly look like flying flock of birds. Next is lavender. Though I am using Hello. This is lavender. Gently bab and form a triangular shape. Then grab some orange to add another layer. You can put VCE anywhere in the bow, kay, but it's best to add them at the side. Painting leaves is therapeutic, especially when you have a nice and cozy ambience with your favorite music playing in the background. Some stars with a stem with the light pressure transitioning to have a pressure. Going back to light pressure. This is a one stroke leaf. It becomes a two stroke leaf. When we add another side to the one stroke leaf, leave a wide space in between. If you are making a two stroke leaf, it will definitely put your leaf painting to another level. You can also have long leaves by stretching the gliding of the brush up to how much pigment year brush has. This too will make your Boogie entrusting. 6. Mini Rose: Using male consistency, make a swirl at the sender, followed by coffee consistency. See strokes outwards. Make sure to leave whitespaces. Well, you can effortlessly achieve whitespaces because of the sea strokes. We will then use the consistency for the most outer petals. Using male consistency again, intensified as center of the flower by adding another layer of swirl on top of the first. Then surround it with coffee consistency, see strokes. Make sure to leave the most outer panels pale. I will intensify this center again by doing the same process. Use the pointy tip of your brush to outline the panels. This is my personal technique and binding roses. Add purple to our red and add another swirl layer. The budding roses are quick and easy to do. Make a numeral swirl, then make a cop grabbed milk consistency of the same color, and make another swirl layer on top of the first layer, outline the left side of the roses. The outline will depend on when your light source is. Since our light source is at the right side, the left side of the budding roses must be darker. Let's now add this thems and some random leaves. 7. Mini Anemone: Using coffee consistency, make five battle flowers by budding together five to stroke leaves. In a form, a flower bear butter consistency of the same color. Then gently Babbitt on the center of the animal. Nice. We will outline the analysis well, then had the stems and the leaves. Yes. 8. Mini Hydrangea: Use any round item that you can use to pattern a perfect circle using T consistency. Make for betel flowers. This is similar to anemones, these, but we will have to fill this circle. Don't worry if there are whitespaces in-between. We will be adding more layers later on. Now let me just beat it up a bit. This is now coffee consistency in a more intensified mixture. I am targeting the wide spaces left from the first layer. Now the next layer is a different shape that is complimentary to the colors of the first two. I am filling some whitespaces, win, lose battles. Meaning it can be one or two battles, but not the whole flower. Intensified and mixture. Then add random flowers and lose battles. And random leaves in there you have your hydrogen Jia. Easy, right? Let's now put them all together. 9. Demo: One of the many things miniature Arts has taught me is how to be beige it. Well, I guess how to be more patient. I hope you'll learn that in this class as well. I am so excited and looking forward to seeing your projects. Thank you for watching and stay safe. Right? Answers. Thank you. Right. It's a transition. So these kinds of things to say. Now, as such, step one, if we take the test. 10. Project: For your project, create a meaningful k now bigger than four by four inches. Consisting the flowers would be that in the previous video lessons. Roses, antimony, hydrogen jazz fillers, and the leaves. You can make as many as you can and choose different color palettes. Guillaume. 11. Thank you!: Mm-hm.
