1. Introduction: Hi guys, my name is Kate and I had been painting with watercolors for six years. You can learn more about my creativity on my Instagram page. This is my nickname. I will be really glad if you subscribe. And today I prepared a new watercolor lesson for you. We will append spring landscape with soft clouds. In this lesson, you will learn how to prepare watercolor before painting. How to use the wet-on-wet technique. How to paint clouds, how to combine and mix colors. How to bend a real clean water. How to add small details with white gouache and watercolor pen. So let's get started. 2. Step 1: pencil drawing: I start with a pencil drawing. I don't like to do complex pencil drawing in landscape painting. I draw the horizon line and the line dividing the heels. Next, I draw that are all to depict perspective. It is important to read them. They're owed at the bottom of the sheet. Before starting to paint with watercolor, I make the pencil drawing less saturated. If you have to keep this step, then the pencil lines, we'll show strongly through the layers of water column. 3. Step 2: sky & clouds: I will use wet on wet technique for painting. On my opinion, this technique is the best for painting soft and light clouds since cerebri, whether paper with clean water that the bands spread very easily over the sheet. Thanks to these, we can convert the softness of the clouds. While pay absorbs water, I prepare that pains. I drop a drop of clean water into each color that I really use as that painting Sky from the lightest colors and mix the yellow, orange, and kinetochore don't. So I get gentle peach shape. I band through this column near the horizon line. Then add some orange color. At this stage should reform that clouds by painting over this guy. Next, I band shed, those are the clouds and makes kilogram codon, cobalt and orange to get deistic Bhopal column. Using this band shadows on the top of the clouds. It does a bottle to look at and reference on this step. This way we can bend the clouds more nature rather than to smoothly blend the shadow color into the clouds. I blow the color wheel my fingers. Also, if you need to remove column, you should use a wet, clean brush. This way, I shape the clouds again and the make them soft. 10. Okay. While it's still wet, add some dark shadow spots. 4. Step 3: field: Now I tend to painting the field. Let's wet the area only the field, really what Tim? I also start from the lightest colors. At first, I band theory, the saturated yellow color on the tops. Oh, the heels. This real show. Then the heels are illuminated by the sun. Next, I add olive green color, though the phi heel mix, olive green color with green with a saturated green color. I bent over the heel in the foreground. We have theta remains of green paint on the brush. I band though with a heel on the left. And they bent over the grass between the role, it's really the same green column. Also. Now we can create this structure on the grass while the paper is still wet. The donates use chaotic vertical strokes. Now, I tend to paint their old, I take mars brown color and mix it with amoeba. Then I band or whether road, notice that they make vertical strokes in yellow, the grass that's banned do that. There aren't Zetian of the integrals, one naturally. Along the right side though they're old, I paint the yellow line to imitate the flowers as Alipay, but has already begun to dry. The British colony begins to push the previous layer out of the bay and leaves unusual button. Take this moment and band align along the Bordeaux the nearest he'll read the clean wet brush. So our painting became unusual and picture sick. They want to push the pigment out of the paper and lift bizarre stains that resemble grass and flowers. I mix of interest over the Bhopal on the pilot with brown to paint a shadow on the rod. I dry the painting with a hair dryer. 5. Step 4: small details: Now we move on to the last step, painting the details. I use semi dry brush and green color with the vertical tower took strokes. I add grass in the center until along the h over the heel. It is better to add such details on the, to the foreground to further emphasize the perspective in the picture. Now I'm mixing yellow watercolor with Kitano, white goulash. I spread this color using a Bristol brush with a belt on what to gallop pain. So the shadow on the road. And I add a few spots of light yellow paint to depict the deaf flowers. That's all. Thank you for watching my lesson. I really appreciate it. It drives me as a teacher.
