1. Introduction to Painting a Peony: everyone welcome back to the studio and these classes and maybe teaching you how to watercolor flowers. This classes for the students who wish to paint and easy but still dimensional and lovely watercolor flower. I think it's so important that we can grasp the concept of painting even a single petal well so we can apply. That same technique to other flowers will be painting in my classes. In this class, I literally go petal by petal with the same overall technique in each panel. It's just so much fun, and I look forward to seeing your own water. 2. Mixing Colors for Peony: Hello, everyone. And welcome to our class about mixing the colors for our water color floral class. So for this class, we're going to making a simple but lovely pee on me. So I'm going to get Sam Permanent Rose. They were going to get some of the raw sienna here. Mix that in with your permanent rose, and it created a very beautiful, almost read Orrin G looking color. Next, get some Chinese white and mix that in turned it to a very beautiful pinkish color. So we're going to be using those colors of primary color. Next, get some more permanent rose on your brush. Mix that in black, just a tad bit of black. And here in mixed that in next. Get a little bit of that. Rossi in on your brush mixed that in a swell, a little bit more, and then that little bit more permanent rose. You made a nice dark pink color there. Next, go ahead and get some more Chinese whites. Makes that in one and just get a dab of light red makes that in there creates a nice, beautiful, bright pink. And just for blending purposes, we're going to create a nice, peachy yellow tone is to get some of that raw sienna exiting one some water. Get in some dab of that permanent rose and mixed that in, and then go ahead and get some white expat in there. And then we have a nice PCI tone, as you can see. Lastly, go ahead and get some of that raw Sienna again. Get some light red mixed that in a little bit more raw sienna, a little bit more light red that in and then just get a dab of black and mixed that it as well. Dark in that up a bit and then, lastly, gets and permanent rose and mix that in a swell and lastly, go ahead and mix in some Chinese white by itself. We have some nice white stones, pink tones, pale pinks and then peaches and then your darks. So I hope even drink this class and mixing your colors, and I will see you in the next class over, sketching out R P on e 3. Sketching the Peony: Good morning, everyone. And welcome to our class about sketching are watercolor P on E. It's gonna be a basic peony with several lovely pedals. So let's go start it. So we're going to start out with a kind of a circle point Teoh start out with. Then we're going to start drawing a few pedals. So I charge in from the inside, kind of just draw with. Make sure you have some gold edges there and bring that in. And then, of course, another one here, mega thin one. Because ever gonna go around and make the back side of the pedal years, you can see like So don't let's start out here and go around. Go in to make the back side of that pedal there. Let's go out here. Create a nice a larger panel here spring that one in to create another one here with and nice folded in pedal. Bring that one out. So it'll be here kind of bring some pedals folding in this time. So we're gonna that there. Let's do another one here, kind of make it look with some circular edges there, kind of bringing them in closer. And these were gonna leave pretty much white to make it look like it's dimensional and had another pedal here, kind of with this top of the pedals folded in that went away in and bring her body and as well, here we go. Now we're gonna have some nice, bigger pedals coming out. Let's add a nice cold here, coming in. Fold there. Let's go ahead and add in folded pedal its edges. That's ad somewhere folded ones I would see another full. That one right here, kind of meat. That tip of that pedal. Come in. Come on, bring it around. Bring that body in, go ahead and do another one. That's bring the tip of that pedal in. So let's do another. I lose one up here. Thanks. So and I would say this is a pretty basic piano and you want Go ahead and bring this little stem out here. It won't be focusing too much on the stem. We just do a basic little green stone, but overall really focusing on the pedals, adding dimension and just using again, Are you simple basic colors that we made in our previous 4. Painting the Peony (Part One): everyone. And welcome back to our watercolor peony class. We're gonna go ahead and get started in filling in our lovely flower with some colors. So I am going to be using my again for round fresh. They also have a smaller brush here. You don't have a smaller brush. I recommend getting one, but you can still use those Finally comes with the tip of our number four brush. So we, of course, have our colors that we made before have those to the side and lightest color here, which is put some Chinese white in their little pink got in there. But that's perfectly flying. It's basically the widest pink like some water in here. Okay, so I am going to start in from the inside. But I am going to leave space for the middle of our flower. So I am just going toe work this pedal here. Just feeling, leaving some space as you can see a way up without actually touching the edges of the highest part of the pedal. Then I am going to sweep in that beautiful first peak that we made here. And bring that in from the bottom up. You can see you're not going over that white space. You're not touching it. We're just going over that paint that you just put down dab and pick up that excess paint. Then go ahead and get this nice. Most want pink that we made here, make some water in there and then continue to go around the paint. I'm only going on the edges this time. This beautiful color, like so a little bit in the middle and naturally just goes up to the top. I'm going over my edges a little bit with the nice, delicate touch. And now I'm going to get in a dark color, this color again amended. Put this color down, and then I want to go over with our darker color because this is going to be a pedal that we want to add dimension to. I'm gonna sweet that dark color around the edge like so, Dad, pick up all of that excess water, blend that harsh lining right there. And I'm gonna get that dark color here just a tad on my brush and I'm going. Teoh, sweep that color in here. It's like so along the backside of it. Like so Because This is an interior pedal. I will go just a bit more higher. Like so. Okay, Now, go ahead and get this beautiful, dark red, pink tone and bring just a bit on the lower part, Just like so, Just a touch. And then just by barely picking up just a little bit of that paint that overall, leaving the majority of it there, pick up very lightly by dabbing your brush. Okay, we're gonna follow the majority of this step for the rest of our pedals. So I am going to get that nice breaks White, no pink color and sweet that in the inner part of this pedal here, it's the color all the way in. This is the inside of our pedal. This is the outer side of our pedal tone here and sweet that color in. We're gonna make it darker as the outside pedal meets the inside pedal. A little bit of death. Okay, next to get that darker tone here and bring that color. Okay, Dad, let that kind of Blendon don't. My cat as you're working your way up touch a little bit of the exterior. This line, we're going to continue to get that darker tone here and work it more so in the bottom. Part rate years. Bring that coloring and like so? Yes, like, beautifully. Go ahead and touch up. This one right here. Just a bad. Added more That color right there. We will do some touch ups in the end, but this is an essence using the what? On what effect? Because we're leering it as it's wet. Here we go. You know more that color up. Okay, clean our brides. Now we're going to get that light pink again here, and we're just going to sweep on the exterior of this pedal. This is our exterior. We don't want to leave it completely completely, But we're just going to use a little bit of paint on the back side of this flower petal. Next, get just a little bit of this pink here, just dad, and go on the outer edge, just like so. Can you carry that around a bit? A little bit up there, just like so clean your brush, gamble that water off and blend in this line. You want that to be ah, her sliding merry go when it's naturally fade. Okay, Next we're going to work on this pedal here, get that beautiful right pink color and that color and being a little bit of white space again, up on the tips. We will touch them up, though in a second when that color in, bring that color all the way down. Okay, then get our next peak. We're going in the same order. Can bring that nice picking up. Carry that collar and color around. Believe around the pedal. Okay, Next, get that middle, darker pink, and sweep this clearing as well. I am using light strokes. It will naturally fall in too. The papers you don't know over blended. Bring this color in same thing right here. Beautiful tone in carrying around Gently pick up that excess water blend back color and another cool. In fact, that you can do is after drying your brush and you're picking up paint is to do just the lines and it'll set some. I make some lines in your pedals. You don't have to do this Still a little bit too tricky, but it has a nice effect. Okay, Continue to get that darker tone here and makes it's actually very fun. Once you start to really layer your colors because it makes a nice depth effect to your flower. So it is very lovely. Bring that nice dark color in color in. Okay, then go ahead and get some more. That light pink here dab and just start to blend a bit more appear, dad, and blend that color in by pressing a little bit more firmly into the paper. Trace the exterior of that pedal. Okay? And then, while it's still bit what? Go ahead and get some of that darker mid tone pain. Great. Here, Dad, and kind of go around exterior of this pedal. So I carry that color around backside of that panel. And just like we did this panel, which is getting a little bit of that white go on edge, not touching the inner side of that backside and then getting her darker tone. Dr. Tony, this tone, it's a little bit on it. Sweet that in Dad. And then, of course, you don't have those harsh lines on the exterior pedal and blend a little bit. What? Just some water on your brush. Okay. We want to make this a little bit darker, so we're gonna get that darker tone here again, Swede that color and like so just like so, especially on the back end of this pedal, cause I had to more definition to the edges of our peddled dab blend in that harsh line. So again, up here, especially a little bit darker, right where the white is meats, It's the next definition. There we go. Okay, moving on to our next pedal. Let's start out with this beautiful pedal here. Gonna get that nice white, pink, sweet, that color and so against. And using larger brush strokes her pink That same order we talked about just in case you forgot it's this pink. Bring that nice pink in especially here on the side. Like so Carry that beautiful color around trace lightly traced The edges bring in our darker pink sweet, that beautiful color in dad Blend in those harsh minds dab your brush down those Russian lines. So what them to naturally fade in? Then get that beautiful dark rose Randich color and sweep that in gonna create a nice little line effect there that took her color around. Same thing here. The beautiful thing about watercolors it'll naturally blended in as well. But you overly having to blend it. So, Dad, my brash in light lead dab out too much of that excess paint. I want this to be a nicer blend, someone to clean my brush off. And I am going to pick up some of that paint. Carry that line around creative nice depth effect right here by going harshly here in all the way. Carrying it through. Okay. Same thing on this side. I'm going toe harshly. Press and bring that all the way up. Bring that. Thank you. Create a nice lying effect in that single pedal there. Continue to get this beautiful roses. Color it and sweeper in as well. Especially you were the light exterior pedal. Hugh meets this pedal, especially in the corners here as well. Sweetly Perrin. Carry her around. Have that now for this pedal. I want to go ahead and get that nice PCI toned I made here just a little bit on my brush and sweep that in right here. Next we're going Teoh, go on the exterior of this pedal just a little bit cause it does still have a little belly . A body inside there. But remember believing that pretty much white for the center of heart flower. Next, this pedal, we're going to get our white feel her all the way in with that mother, You don't want to leave white space, Okay? You got that excess paint. Get our darker pink tone and sweep her end, especially along the edges of this exterior of the total. Bring that color in, get that darker tone and that well, here while it's wet, so adds a nice blending effect.

So we're gonna go ahead and add some more of that dark permitted rose ready here, dab and just add a little bit too. The edges, like so. And by doing that, it creates a nice step effect here is you can tell what's the interior of the pedal and what is the exterior of the pedal? Stab and just blend that it. Okay, get that nice white pink color. Sweep her all the way in. Just like so. I used those nice big strokes. Be confident where your painting that in? Leaving a ladle.

Well, in that in if it okay my back. Sit. We're gonna work on this exterior pedal here, get that nice white pink again. Use nice big strokes and sleep that color in. So, neglecting those nice fine edge is here. Sweep it all the way in all the way up to the fold of that exterior pedal a bit. Get our darker pink, her in a little. A little bit of white space there creates a nice on the line, in fact, that we will do get our dark permanent rose sweet, that color in a little bit of a line There. Sweet. Better over here right here. Dab and start to blend in and carry that beautiful color around where you want it to go, especially right here.

Go get our middle tone being here dab carry her around the exterior. Just like so Test. Very faintly, Dad. Paint a little bit of a harder struck there to blend those colors. And I added some water on my brush dab, and I'm blending them in. Okay, here we go. Okay. I'm gonna get my small brush again, and I'm going to get some more of that permitted rose red, dark color. And I want to find just a little bit more than weather. Enough already. But I want to go in just a little bit more, like so just to find you live it. We don't want to overdo it. That looks not natural. Get some water in there. Blend that in speed of white. Nice, big strokes. Sweet. That color in. It's always a good thing to rest your hands on the table. Never really paint like this. Not good for a water color. Sweep that color all the way in up to the edges at the exterior pedal. From here we go. Get that nice, lighter pink. Sleep her and six. So carry on the way up. Wait up dab. Take off those big old blobs of paint their water It allows for the next later blend in just a bit easier. Some more of that peaked. Makes that one in. Carry that around Sweet. Now, for this pedal, we're not gonna make it darker. Appear because imagine like coming in would make this a bit more brighter. So we're gonna make it darker here, though, but not as drunk up here to weep that color in Dad and starts to blend that way. You want it to go, Dad, Make up this beautiful color here care. You know, if it underneath fold here dab. I want to go ahead and get some of that nice peach tone color. It's wet and go right. Andri that lying that you just made dab clean your brush shops have It's pretty dry and blend in that beautiful color sweep down like so get some more that beautiful permanent rose red. We've that in the corners again. I don't really define right here, especially so go around that exterior. That pedal. Okay, a little bit more. I knew. Carry that beautiful color up. Clean your brush off, blended in, clean up the lines a bit. I cleaned my pre bridge completely and now I'm going out and picking up some paint. Carrying it down a little bit creates nice little line effects. Okay, Now I am going to touch up that folded pedal The tip of its fold it in. I'm going to get that white color sweep that in top? I think so. Blend. Get me medium pink color, go around the edges, that color and, like so and when you go ahead and get that dark, permanent rose color again, I'm gonna go on the exterior. Here, define that corner of it. I think so. Now I'm going to work on this pedal, going to get that beautiful white pink sweep that color all away in all the way to the top , that darker pink tone. Mix that in so, Dad, and pick up all that excess paint especially right here. Okay, a little bit more that my brush and sweep that color in, like so. Especially here in the corners. I really defined those corners there, the edge of a folded in pedal. So clean your brush on. Blend that in for a nice blended effect. Even one harsh lines. That's the last thing you want in a work equipping. You want to look as nice and soft as possible. Those harsh lines in Bring that town get that nice PCI tone color and work that lovely color right here. Just a bit, dad, and blend her. And okay, next to go ahead and get that white pink color again, let's go home. Exterior. Carry that color in a bit. Then get that dark pink tone. This one and just pretty much ran out of which is good timing and go on the exterior, not touching the interior. A little bit darker here, dad. And blend. That is but little water on your brush dab and then blend that. Why you can use the side of your brush, Whatever works for you, The side works for me best when I am trying to blend in brush. Okay. And there you have the first prime layer of painting are watercolor peony. We're going to be a few touches here in there, but right now we're going to do the inside our puny, simple, raw sienna. And then the raw sienna mixed with white and a little bit of yellow, as are easy. We're gonna first get are brighter yellow that we made the light yellow. It was a mix of raw sienna and white. 20 layers Here, dab a little fine little lines. Okay, Once you have that done, go in with your simple, raw sienna color that you made by itself. Rasanen is a beautiful color, and I'm going to go in and just kind of makes a more definition in the center by doing that , just like so. Okay, so, Okay, I'm gonna let that sit verb it, and then we're going to go over and we're gonna add are finer lines, and I will be using my smaller, detailed brush. But however, number four brush will work just fine that 5. Completing the Peony (Final Stages): Now we're going to continue in filling in the middle of our very with our smaller brush just going to get that raw Sienna and on my brush, it's fine. Little lines like so sweep them up. It's like so just use fine lines without running into the other lines that you're making. Sweep them up. So then, when you get some rocks, Sienna with a little bit of brown on it, just gonna get even darker shape but not overly dark, just like that Dark Dan and go over just a few little dots over the stem little fibers that you just made. I am using just fine. Little dots were not overdo them. It's a more paint on my brash carry this down bed free here. Just like so simple narrowing to do just a simple stem here by getting her number four brush again and just getting some permanent green white together. I'm not really focusing on our this dem here. Get a little bit of raw CNN in there permanent green and white. I was just gonna quickly kind of sweep that in so all the way down, take up that paint there and blended and by cleaning your brush, sweeping that color with some water. Now, now we are going to add in our final touches just a few finishing touches into our pedals. Wait a nice pink, almost fusion color by just adding some red permanent rose and wipes together. Gonna make a darker town here. I was going to go over some of the darker spaces to highlight those darker tones. Get some paint on our brush dab just to fit and go ahead and sweet that color in. We want a little bit more definition and because this is already dry because we let it try . Just blended quite nicely. It's more on our brunch. Dad, I want to add a little bit more here being that color up down. Okay, that calling that nice little crack there, Dad, add some more here. The wonderful thing about watercolor is that you can just layer after it's dry, and it creates a beautifully fact of death. Kate at nice color around dab. Blend that color in, get some water, get some more that honor paint on a brush. It's spring some in here, so carry that around kind of want to go. We hear that as well. Very lightly, even Just light strokes. Kind of getting around the edges here to fine our edges. Get this two bit on the tip of your brush and a lot. Just kind of sleep that color around, like, so very lightly. You don't wanna overdo that. Okay, It's a more paint on a fresh Let's go in here. Don't brush can around a bit. That edge. They're kind of find that better, dad. And blend that harsh line in as you've been doing before. Get some more paint on our brush and I'm going to get a little bit more prominent, Rose. Like so here. I'm gonna add some radon. They're just fit. And just a touch of number Brown. Just a touch. And it made a nice, darker tone right there. We want to go just a little bit darker. So, um, for Brown permanent Rose in red gonna sweep that coloring right over the places that we just supplied that nice. What pain? I'm not gonna overdue with this color more so going in the corners of my flower, not necessarily carrying this color out here anywhere. You're just a bit clean, fresh dab and blend in those colors. You just put down a little bit of water. You don't overdo it with the water there on this line in and this harsh line as well. Damn right here in this corner. Here we go. Get some more that darker color that we just made when you're just a bit more right there. Gonna define the edge of that peddle dad and dry and blend that in. Okay, No, I am going back to this lighter. Usual color. Still dark, though. Gets him on my brush, and I'm gonna sweep. Been just a bit rate here, coming out, carrying that around a bit. Bring some of that color up there. Clean your brash dad on your towelette. Just kind of gently sweet those edges of that color you put down up Tinto brushstrokes, I guess anything to this one. That lighter fusion, but still dark color. Let's go in right here. It's, um, about excess paint off. Carry that thing around here. This corner here, I like to use side of my brush kind of around like that, Dad, some water in there, and then Dad gently sweep that color up using gentle you love you. Get that darker color again. Go again in the corners. Here it's again right here in the corner here. That darker toned. Just go get some water on your brush Hands the land that Okay. Not going to add some definition after this head drive, we're not gonna add some definition into our inner petals. So we're gonna get that dark fusion again that we made. And we're going to feel this little in lightly with some light strokes, Just like so carry that color in the cracks Just a bit. We go get that darker future that we just made in the second color, we meet and bring that color and, like, so Okay, dab to dry brush a bit and pick up that excess paint kind of tonight's blending back there . I just think so. We're gonna get that usual color, that lighter future, but still dark colors. We're gonna go a little bit right here in the inner corners of this edge, just like so. We're gonna define this area right here. Now, since this is dry, are you gonna get that? Nice? Dark usually made this color right here and we're going to sweep that color in That's like so right side And then also right here to define that edge. Dab you brash to get all that paint off and land that coloring. So blend thes and reason at some water on your brush. And Dad, we're gonna make a little more definition here as well. You can tell we need just a little bit more definition. We're gonna get that full future color here without watering it down. I have and go around the edge of that pedals exterior here. Just like so. Dad, pick up all that excess paint. So get some of that darker tone that we made this color right here. I have carry that in a swell a little bit right here. Finding that again Just a little bit in that corner. Find that right here. Bring that in the corner there, Dad. I'm blending those harsh lines Water my brash dab on my talent and blend some water here. Great. Here we're just defining are darker tones brush blending all of those lines Just put down water time water It's a more paint on my brush Little that side in dab and we go I kind of wanted to be darker versus over here. Still kind of make it darker on the edges. But that other pedal you defining where the pedals are, think so, Dad, blend that line just okay. And as you can see, we are using that darker fusion color more so in the inner versus the exterior of Are flower well in that it you do want to kind of highlight the section? No. And you really Do you want to make it a little bit darker? Where the corners are she with fools are and it starts to really take a nice defining shape . Anyone add some right here in this again dab to carry that Come in Glenn that night. Creating the nice lines from it now is a nice affect you can do. Of course, you don't have to do the lines. You can just blend that and have our final watercolor peony. But just adding it's skew darker, hints through out the darker tones in our flower, you're able to highlight it. I hope you've enjoyed this class and please feel welcome to share your own watercolor flour , and I look forward to seeing your work
