Hi everyone! 

My name is Joly and I am a watercolorist based in the Philippines. I discovered painting with watercolor back in 2013. I started out as newbie and learned to paint better through making mistakes and learning from other amazing artists. I just love how we can express ourselves through painting, creating wonderful watercolor florals using our artistic interpretation. It makes each painting really unique! 

My instagram account (@jolypoa)  serves as my art journal where I post my progress in the form of timelapse videos, real-time videos and photos of my paintings. My goal was also to be able to share what I have learned in watercolor. I hope to be able to do the same here on Skillshare! :)

1. Introduction: do you? Hello, everyone. Welcome to my 10th sculpture class, where even learned how to paint watercolor and flora letters and numbers just like the paintings in my background. My name is jolly, and I'm a watercolor art space in the Philippines. I'm also known as Johnny Po on Instagram right here, and that's where I share my process videos and also photos off my paintings. We'll start the class by talking about the materials that we need. If it's your first time to take any off my closets going, bring because I have prepared a demo off the floor us that you're used in this class. However, if you're thinking may previous classes, you can skip that part and head onto the projects. I know that the length of this class is quite done being because it's too long. What don't read. That's because I have prepared so many projects for you guys, so you can choose whichever you want to try out. First, we will start first. We'd filled floral letters and numbers where I will show you how to combine colors just like these examples. And then let's move on to negative painting where I will be teaching you how they use masking fluid and also how you can protect your brush will be here, win by the mask included, and then okay, metallic watercolor flora letters. It's just my favorite, and we'll do two versions. Me. I will be teaching you how to paint a free hand watercolor flora leather. This class is with the bull, for beginners are for anybody who wants to create a personalized gift, and what you can do is you can paint the first letter off your friend's name or the first letter of your baby's name and just hang it on the wall. Or I think that this could be a great and easy way to make commission projects. The goal of this class is to unleash your creativity, and I have prepared so when examples for you guys so that you have more ideas to work on. And then finally, you can create paintings that you can call your own. If you are keen to learn how to paint all of these projects, then they start the class 2. Materials for the Class: let's talk about materials and I'm going to start with the paper. So you have here, um, some 100% cauldron paper and this ISS arches. And the sickness is only 185 G s m. And they discover that this is cheaper. Come. Prayed to the 300 GSM version and it holds Ah, watercolor paint. Well, um, but I don't I probably won't recommend this paper if you're going to do a lot breezy or if you're gonna put a lot of water. But for our project today, since we're just going to paint some simple florals, this thickness is good enough. Also suggests buying a large sheet of paper and just cut it into smaller pieces. Because I'm gonna show you the next paper, this ISS Saunders Water Ford. And it's also good when a 100% called on paper. And the difference between this and the arches is that I got this in a block form. So block form means that the sides are actually glued together so that this prevents your paper from war being while you're painting. And there is a part great here that doesn't have blue and that is where you can take out your ah paper. Just slide a pile of life over here so we can release one sheep and you should eat Ah, block style off watercolor paper. It's just more expensive. But if you prefer this, it's also good enough. This is 300 G s m. Otherwise, um, are chest iss good enough? And I just wanted to show you guys two different styles off paper and they are both cold breasts. So if you're painting loose florals, I would suggest to always use cold pressed paper because the texture is really good for loose morals. If you like meeting some very detailed, realistic botanicals, then get the hard pressed paper. Let's talk about paints. So I'm going to be using the Shien Han pwc. And you might have seen this in my previous class s. This is a Korean artist paid paint and they come into, But I do you prefer to squeeze them out and let them dry on the half pants like this so she can see have used some of the greens over here and just going to refill them once I finish this color. All right, so you're probably wondering whether you should buy paint any half band form or in a to form like this. Well, the quality is just the same. If you're buying a tube, it suited for paintings that are larger. And if your baby is on the small things, 1/2 pounds like this is enough. So I guess it really depends on what you plan to paint and also depends on the brand, because some brands only have their paints into formulaic this machine ham PWC. So one of my favorite brands is the art philosophy, and we're going to also use this. This is the current set, and I love this sets how much? Because it has older views and greens in one pallets. I'm going to show you the swatches, and it's just so pretty and really pigmented. And I just love using this for projects for painting ocean. Or if I want a blue seem floral bouquet and later on, we are going to use this for our mother color numbers. Next, we need a mixing pot it So this is just the live off my palate over here, and you can use a ceramic palette for a even son normal ceramic plate that's used for dining where you also used them. I'm also going to include this metallic accents from art philosophy again, and I love using the gold pains over here. I prefer these two. Sometimes I mix them for my projects. So this is what you're used for. Our wasn't color a metallic letter, but you can also use fine deck or any gold P that you have for the brushes. I'm going to be using the silver brush back little bit, and this is in a round brush form, so you're going to use a six and eight, and this is one of my favorite round brushes because it can hold a lot of water at the same time. It still keeps its point, and when painting florals, I make sure that my brush is always, always pointy. Now this is going to be optional. This is a flat brush and the sizes 1/2 inch, so we will be using this for our watercolor letter. But of course, you can also use your ordinary round brush if you don't have a flat brush for growing our watercolor letters. We need pencil, and we also need this kneaded eraser, and I'm gonna show you how to use this later in one. Off the lessons you need a masking tape. So the sisters regular masking tape from the office supply section and will use this to take down the sides off our watercolor paper. Next, we'll use this masking fluid. So this is from the brand bbo There other brands that have masking clue is you can use a mess. Well, I've used this brand, and it's a pretty good and it's also colored. So once I put this on the paper, I can see the parts where I put the masking, threw it on and with a partner this with just a really affordable brush, a synthetic one. So when you're working with masking fluid, don't use your expensive brushes. Just use any cheap brush. Um, it's also better to use synthetic ones, and I'm gonna teach you how to use this. Later, I will show you a tip on how you can prevent your brushes from getting destroyed by the masking fluid. Lastly, let get a jar off clean water and also will need tissue paper to blot out the excess paint in our brush. Let's now move on to the next video 3. Tips Before You Start: So before we start, I wanted to talk to you guys about how to start painting your was a color letters and numbers because I know a lot of you are having a hard time planning. So what Number one? You need to choose the color for us so we can start with your favorite color. Or you can use complementary colors like this. So this is violet and yellow, so you can grab a color real so that it's easier for you to decide which color you want to use. And another idea is to create a greedy int pattern. So maybe you can start with some like florals. Then you'll start with some medium. She'd laurels. So this is just an example. I'm just painting so that you guys can see it, then the end with the darkest color. So that's 1 80 year for you guys. Okay, when you have chosen your colors, now you need to go to composition, and it comes to compensation. One of my tips is to start by pinpointing your mean flowers. So, for example, I have here leather G. So I'm going to paint orange, and the orange partier would be my main flowers. So the white space here you can just paint some leaves or fillers just to complete this leather. Yes, we can start their painting the main flowers first, then just really thin breeds of leaves and fillers. And the idea is to also do a small sketch like this so we can start by, For example, we can draw just a big flower over here through the system. In flower, you have ah, medium size flower here, and then you can just fit in with some leaves and again, some more feelers. Well, this week it will be easier for you to plan the flowers that you will include in this letter. If you're going to paint just one size flowers for the entire letter, well, you can just start from, for example, start with from the bottom going up. We just find this in with flowers until you reach the top 4. How to Trace a Letter: so the first thing that we need is a printed letters. So I just printed this letter on a normal bond paper, and then I just taped this on our glass store. So this is an alternative if you don't have a light box to trace this leather, so you're just going to use natural sunlight as our main source off light. And I have here a watercolor paper, so I just placed it on top off the barn paper, and I'm going to tape it us well, and because we have the natural song light at the back off, thes through papers, we can clearly see the leather A let's now grab our pencil and you can also use a ruler just to trace out the straight line. We actually don't need to draw the entire letter. You can just try the drawers or than points and just connect them once you place the paper on a flat surface. All right, so this is the finished piece. As you can see, we were able to chase the leather A and was really nice about this method is that you can actually try to print different phones. So if you want a script type off letter. You can also try to do that. If you're not interested to do this method off course, you can also do this free hand and just draw the letter according to your own style. After growing the letter, you can use a kneaded eraser just a light in the cooler off the pencil. You can likely dab your needed razor on the drawing or just try to rob it a little as you can see the needed areas or picked up the ledge from the pencil. Some people will get a piece off this kneaded eraser, and they will form it into a ball, and then they will just roll it onto their growing just a light and the color of the pencil . And reason why we want a lighter shade for our growing is because once he paint on top off your pencil outline, you won't be able to erase it anymore. US because of you off using the kneaded eraser. And this is a very handy tool when you are painting and you're growing. It's also less messy and doesn't Reese much? You're growing now that you know how to trace a letter, let's now move on to the next video 5. Floral Elements Part 1 : all right, so in this video, we're going to pay the floral elements. So we're going to paint some simple Pharrell's leaves and fillers, and in this video, I'm going to use my song there. Some other afford cold pressed paper. So this is in high white. So I do prefer you saying, Really whites paper whenever Anything, because the colors just pop up more compared to cream colored watercolor paper. If you have big in my previous glasses, then you may skip this video because this video is just going to be sort of a refresher course for the florals and the leaves that started some simple for battle flowers. And as you can see, we painted this part with just one shade of blue. But when you're painting watercolor letters or numbers, it's best to use different shades off the color, though that it looks interesting. So I'm just going to show you a sample. So as you can see this, let this number two. It has different shades of blue, and it looks interesting through the eyes because we have different colors and your eyes will just move all around the number. Now let's try to change up the colors, so I'm going to use Prussian blue, so just gently press your brush to create a petal. And you can also change the pressure in your brush so that you don't create a pointy tip and you can have, like, a fat belly in the center. So you're done with one flower and let's just change up the shade. I'm gonna use, um, just cerulean blue, and I'm gonna put a lot of water. Okay, so it doesn't have to look so perfect. Usually when you're painting Ah, floral letters and numbers. Um, it will look good as a group. Sometimes a single flower. It might not look what? But when you put them as, ah group, it will just look amazing. Okay, so now we have a darker flower in a later one can add another color so we can make 1/2 a blue green color. So I'm gonna add sap green to my cerulean blue. Did have a little bit more of green, okay? And you immediately see that it just looks more interesting compared to beating just one color. And another tip that you can do is to add a dark center. You should be like adding indigo through the center. It just gives it more depth. Just looks nicer. It's a simple technique, but it will just give better help. Okay, so we're going to use this flour later. So the next flower is a just a simple five bethel flour, and you're going to make it look expressive. I have a mixture off off permanent violet here, and you're just going to So the sway, our brush, I'm going to start at the top and just slowly press. Then they can go up again, like in pain, just lines. So I'm leaving some whites basis, and they go and also dip my brush into the jar and just add a bit of water to my brush and just do a side stroke and just create all of these tiny strokes and you're just building the Peto. So we're not always making one broad stroke, okay? And you should be for this type of flour. It's nice to use Ah, wet brush so that you can really move the petal. Okay, so if the brush is dry, it will be difficult for you to create an expressive stroke. Okay, so sometimes I'm just using the tip off my brush. We're almost done. This is a very easy flower, and again, if you want to put the center, that's okay. Can I add something more? Something darker so you can use a darker shade of fire that or use indigo so you can try and go again. Just put it in the center just like that and we're done. So do make sure that you're adding white spaces so that it won't look like a blob off pain . So now let's move on to painting a rose. I have here a mixture off permanent rose and a bit of crime, son, so she can see. It's a very bold color because you want to send through to be quite dark, and I'm just going to create center first. So we want to create the eye. So I'm just going to press it and make sure that I have to point e dips and then it's just add some thin strokes, just some curve strokes, Okay? And then right now, I can just grab some clean what they're So I'm using this size a size eight brush just going to fade some off those strokes and create a bigger Peto. You seeing this brush can also still use your size six brush. It's OK. And as you can see and continuously evening some white species and sometimes this is ah, what they do him paint grosses. So I still have ah, mixture off my permanent rose and crimson and this brush I did not grants this brush so I can just paint one stroke there and just sort afraid it. Sometimes I do this technique just so I know where the next petal will be. So we're just going to create bigger battles. And don't worry too much about the first layer off this rose because we're going to create a second there. It's just to give it more death. So okay, we're almost done. And after painting this, we are going to wait for it to dry before we add the second layer. Okay, so now let's just wait for this roast gray, all right? So I just use a hair dryer so that it will dry faster. It can also do that I have still here my permanent grows and crimson paint, and I'd like to add a little bit off burnt Sienna is a bit off this violet because I want to create a maroon ish color, and that's just tried to swatch it over here. So we just want a dark color for this parts. I can add a little bit off crimson, okay? And I'm going to paint on top off the first new year when the pain on top of the eye. So this one has too much water. You can see it's it has a puddle. I'm just going to block my brush Changes quite absorbed excess paint over here. T Then it's just paint some thean strokes. So I have, um I size eight. Brush with just clean water is this is what I'm going to use to blur out off the lines. All right, so you can add a few more. Okay. So if you feel like you have too much water in your brush just trying to blot it out, I'm going to paint a stroke over there again and sort of just faded, and you're going to do it all around the rose. This will give it more definition and give the illusion that it has separate petals on the sides. So I made a mistake there. Let's try to fix it. It's just been a blur. It scrap some clean water, so you can actually do this several times. Just add keep on adding layers. Just wait for the layer to dry, and then you can add another layer. It will always look different when you're painting our rules. That's okay. That's what make it makes it unique. He's we're almost done. So I will have more the move off this rose in our projects. So you'll see that the effect will be different each time I paint this rose. Okay, Everything. We can add a few more strokes case and we had a few more strokes. Mr. Add some more definition to this, um, flower. Okay, so I think we're done and then show you some some examples. So this is one of the rule says that we will be painting later, and I also have on Orient truce over here. So once you watch these Teoh projects, you will see that the roses will look different and they look unique on. I feel like every time you paint a rosy, it will really look their friends, and that's what makes it super unique. And then let's move on to the next flower 6. Floral Elements Part 2 : Let's move on to pay the A puny like this. So I'm just going to mix ultra Marine and a little bit off Brent number to create a neutral color. Okay, it's just a bit more blue, and it's very important to put a lot off water because you don't want a dark in our We just want a muted color or something similar toe white and it's just cried us watch. I think the color is good, so that start painting. I am using my size six silver brush, black velvet, and we can start with one pet over here. So we're just going to paint lightly and also very quick. So that's I had one more over here. Okay, And then there, one on the right side. And don't worry after shape. Does it look as good for now? Because we can go back to fix it. We just want the basic shape off, uh, flower. OK, so now that's put a battle over here from painting quite light. I am also leaving some white spaces. All right. Sometimes you can add a bit more blue. If you want a bluish color for the flower, that's okay. And you Can. I also add more petals if you want. Okay, I'm just going to fix the shape. And I'm also just you're seeing the tip off my brush to add just tiny strokes. Sometimes the tiny strokes will make a big difference to the overall Look off the flower and then you can add some. See Pia in the center of very concentrated color. Okay, so we can also add more details. Need there. That's just week for this person, later to die. You can also add some more petals on this side. But for the project, we won't be adding puzzles below because we have our rules over here. So it can co verse the other petals so we only need these petals. Now that this is only drive, we're gonna add one more layer. I'm gonna show you the project so she can't. He added another layer and it just gives it more death compared to this one. So we sort of put it side by side. You'll notice that this one has more death. And so let's start adding some strokes. This is about the same. She or maybe just one j darker than this color that we be mixed. I'm just going to paint on top of the first layer that we did. I'm just making some crispy strokes. And by doing this we are also separating the petals. So I'm leaving some spaces over here. I did not paint on on this area, okay, and then it's Get some See Pia and just add more details to this flower. Just add somethin's drugs and don't bring your also going to paint. This were again in our project, so you can watch another version off this flower ignorance my brush and topped the excess water in my bras in. Just clean this area. So I'm sort of absorbing that excess paint because they don't want it to be all over this flower. We could immediately see that because we I did a second year. It just gave it more depth through this flower, he said. We're done with that. Let's move on to the next flower. So if we're in the next flower, we're going to paint some cherry blossoms, and this is like a simplified version off my previous class, so we'll need a very diluted, permanent rules, and we'll just be painting the flowers first, and then we'll add the stem later. So that's just paint some five petal, uh, flowers using a size six brush. Okay, we have one down. Another one. Be over here. Okay? And then we can add a darker center. You can grab, um, can grab crimson Oregon, grab a more pigmented mixture off permanent rules and just put it here in the center. Okay, then you can add some more petals. Okay, So it doesn't all have to be five petals. Some of them can be just three. Just to give the illusion that some off the petals are behind these two flowers. Okay, then when the grab some currency and, uh, it's gonna makes a bit off burnt umber, and it's just add the branch completely. And then if you want to add some buds, you can grab some crimson. Let's put the buds over here. Okay? So that's super E c. You only need just a few colors to do this for the center. I can also use, um, yellow instead off brick crimson. Here we are done with this, um, Jerry blow sauce. But you can also add some more details if you want somethin strokes in the center. We can also add that I think later on will will be painting an entire letter filled with jerry blossoms. And usually I prefer painting the flowers first before I add the branches. But of course, it also depends on you. If you're more comfortable with painting the branch first, then you should do that. 7. Floral Elements Part 3: that's paints, um, leaves. So that start with something simple? Um, so I have your sap green, and I'm just going to create a us them. And you're just going to use a tipple for barrage to create the thins them, all right? And then that's just slowly press our brush to get that fat belly for the center off this leave and then just slowly lift. And then you're also supposed to drag your brush so that you can create a pointy tip. It's through that again, just lowly press. And if you can always go back through the leaf so that you can fix a shape so the other side this press and then there. Okay, so now we're done with this, and you can also change the colors. Make some off the colors of a generation. Some off. It can be just a lighter, agreeing color. They tried to use sap green, and then let's add a little bit off indigo to get the dark green color. Let's start with the stem again, and then you just need this stamp, our brush to create some small strokes, and you can also try to rotate your papers so that you can get the right angle. Okay, that we're done with. Leave number two and then another combination iss sap green. And you just add any brown to this sap green to create the earthy color. I am going to add some burnt number. Okey. Now that's tried to pain long and slender leaves. And you might have seen this in my previous classes. Okay, just drag your brush. You can also make the wavy stroke just to make it more. I'm expressive. Yes, I think we can add one were over here. Okay, I'm just heading more and more leaves. A quick, quick one is just sap green. This is sapping it into go and then sap green with print sienna. Now let's mix up green with a little bit off brush and blue and it's just we eat a round She leave, but it's pointy. Looks like dollar eucalyptus. Okay, so I'm just going to Sorry it's a girl of the sheep and then fill it in. We'd color. So what you can also do is just to create a round shape like this, and then just add the pointy dip at the end. That's also one way to paint this. It's true that one more time. Okay, so it's lean. Ized are different colors to your green. Create some interesting colors. It also add some pinks or some violence. Now it's been some round tip leaves, and this is just, um, sap green plus permanent file it. So let's just create a loop and just fill it in with color. All right, this one has nick on earthy color. We just added some file it. Okay, this really easy. And we're done introduced this filler before these air just simple varies. And using crimson on I'm mixed a very bold color, which means that it has more big man less water. So just paint some round shapes and then attach them to a stem. Now, this is really nice to add to your watercolor letters because it gives that corn tres to your letter so that we just show you an example. So this is an example of adding contrast were painting, so I added some violet Berries. Unless you can see in this area, it's quite life. But I just punched in some dark Berries and it immediately looked good. So I do love, adding that contrast, and we'll do this later. So we're done with this. Let's paint a different filler. So far, this pillar. I'm just going to deal you to really in blue into a lot off water, and they're just going to dab our brush. So I'm going to create small dogs, big thoughts and just make them into a bunch off thoughts that will look like many flowers . And this will also look good as a filler. So once we're done with that, it's just rinse or brush and just grab some sap green. I usually want to stem to be quite dark and not a lot off water, because if this one has a lot off water and you paint the stem, then it will just all bleed into this blue part and you will lose the color blue in this filler. So I still want to see that blue color, and at the same time I want a very defined color green stems. He so for some off the parts, we can sort ofs much it and make them blend together. That's okay. Let me show you an example, which we'll also do later, just so it will be easier for you to understand why we are doing some off the fillers. So this is this is an example off the feather. So we're gonna do this later. All right, let's move onto the next one. If you're just starting out, you can add some buds like this, and I'm pretty sure you have seen this in my previous glasses. Okay, so it's just like the stamping your brush, and it's very, very e c. And then just add this them. I usually like adding the stem while the boats are still wet so that we can makes those two colors together. That's a very simple filler that we can add. I'm gonna show you an example again. So right here added some buds, and it just enhance entire Look off the painting, another filler that I have shown in one off my glasses before. But I'm showing it again, just in case. It's your first timeto watch my class and haven't taken my previous glasses yet, so I'm just going to paint one line and then just add some arms as Prince our brush grab some super deleted cerulean blue. You can use different colors, then just make some small dots. Okay, You can add more arms if you want. Okay? And then you can also add just a little bit off violet just to make it look more interesting. So we just makes blue and violet, which looks great together. Okay, And then after this, I'm going to show you how you can create some expressive stems. And is this useful when you're painting our whether color that there's because sometimes there's a small gap in between the flowers and you don't know what else to put. So this is like a good way to fill in those gaps. Usually, when you're painting stem, you're going to paint it in a straight manner like this. But it will look better if you try to break this them and make it look express here so you can do something like this and then just break it, and then also changed the pressure in your brush. She again slowly press your garage and lift and then make it. Make it greeny, said Key, so it just looks more expressive that way. It's to another one you can add sap, green and indigo. It just looks more expressive. If you tried to change the pressure in your brush strokes instead of painting this, you want to do just change. One thing is he changed the pressure in your brush. Okay? And another tip is that you can hold your brush in the center so that it feels more loose to paint with compared to holding your brush like this because it feels, um it feels like you have so much pressure on holding this brush that you can't really move that well, let's do this one last time. And I'm just going to zoom out this camera so you can see my hand. Okay, so this is important. If you want to add some stamps through your I'm not theirs such as they face, you can add some tiny stems and get practice more fat in their project later. 8. Letter J: So let's start our first project, and I just have here my arches, watercolor paper and I also did an outline off a letter J. And this one is just freehand. As you can see, I just drew the letter lightly for this project's theme. We're going to pains in both laurels. You saying complementary colors can. I'm gonna quickly show you the color wheel, and I know it might look a little complicated, but complementary colors are just through colors that are opposite each other. Let me just grab my brush. So as you can see, we have yellow here and violet on the other end. You will see in this painting that complementary colors look really, really good together, and you can also use different complementary colors. It's just that for this project, I decided to use violet and yellow. So let's use my size eight round brush, and I am just going to grab some permanent violet. So to start, we need to determine the major flowers first. So let me just grab my sample again. We're just going to be the violet flowers alternate lee. So one in the bottom, another one in the middle and one more at the top. Let's start with one petal first and just slowly press your brush to create a full belly stroke, and then we can just rinse airbrush to create the lighter shade. All file it, so just sway your brush and you can also create some thin strokes and make it look wispy. The three battles will meet in the middle. So right, I'm just trying to fix this shape, and this is easier to do if the petals are still wet. Now let's start to add a darker shade in the middle. I'm just going to grab some indigo and dropped it in the center, so we have to do this while the flower is still wet so that tend to go will lead into the violet. Let's start with one more faour, so just paint lightly, and you can also paint quickly to create a more expressive flower. Okay, so I think we can add more pigment and make some pedals a bit darker. I'm also leaving some whites basis and describe some indigo and just drop it in the center . So now it's add another one at the top, and this time it's facing a top view position. So let's try to grade four petals here. If you go over the line, that's OK so you can paint outside the lines or not really going to be super strict about that because we want the edges to be quite lose. And, um, it's not our aim to have a clean edge for this project. If you do want a clean edge, um, watercolor letter, then you can check out the other project when and we'll show you how to achieve that. Okay, so now we're done with the main flowers, and now we can add some leaves. So the green that I used here is sap green, so I'm just starting to add some leaves beside this flower. You can start by painting the stem first before you add the leaves. Let's change up the angle so we can see it up close. We can also paint some quick strokes so that it looks like stem sticking out. I rinse my brush to create a lighter shade of green, and then let's just try to clean up that part. So let's just paint a few more stems, and then I'm just taking this size six round brush, and I have here some permanent yellow light color, and we're just going to add some fillers. So what they did is that I just took a separate brush to get another color so that I don't have to keep on rinsing my brush If I'm using just one brush, I'm mixing zap green with a little bit off permanent violet, and the effect is something like a smoky green or a neutral green color that looks very pretty. I would suggest trying to experiment on different shades of green because it will look super interesting if you put it in a bouquet or in a set up like this, and then let's grab some more. Hello and I do like adding just pops off yellow all over this letter and then let's add a few more over here. Let's grab some more sap green, so I'm just filling in the white gaps and you can see a started from below going upwards. Now I'm adding some indigo to my sap green to create a darker shade of green, and then you can mix it up with a lighter color. Then let's add some more yellow using my size six round brush and just gonna dab my brush to create some small fillers that you look like buds for just them I'm using. Just sap green. If you still see some white caps, don't worry, because we will be adding some Barry's later on. So right now we just want some sort off a structure, and then, after some off, the parts has dried, then we can proceed to adding some more detail so that this floral leather will look full. I have here are concentrated mixture off permanent violet. So let's just add some Berries. Just create some round shapes all over this floor. A letter I do love the contrast that thes Berries gives this painting. It's add some more over here, so I tend to put the Berries neared. Ah, yellow just for that high contrast. Okay, so let's add some more. Barry's at the top, so try to look at their painting from afar, just to see if you need to add more Berries, uncertain areas or if you have to add some leaves. Now, I'm just adding some small leaves just to fill in some of the gaps and also to fix the shape off this letter. You can also lay your your leaves. Just paint on top off the first layer off these that you painted. Make sure that the first layer is already dry before you paint on top of it. For some areas wearing, you don't know what to add. Just put some fin strokes that we look like stamps thinking out. So try to sort of wiggle your brush so that the branches or the stamps will look more organic. So if you like, some areas need a bit more yellow, so that's just add some more buds. All rights are actually almost done. I just feel like I need to add a few more branches and just a few more yellow buds. And then we can also try to deepen the color and the center off the main flowers. So I'm just going to grab some indigo again and just put something strokes in the middle. All right, so we are done. Congratulations on your first project. Remember that you can use any complementary colors for this project, and they hope that this idea help you in creating your own Orel letter 9. Filled Florals-Watercolor Letter Part 1: Let's be other color numbers. And for today's project, we're going to paint using analogous colors, so analogous colors are just three colors. That's it, thanks to each other. So, for example, you have here Blue, blue, violet and violet or you things do Why let red Violet and then read. But for this project, I'm going to be you saying the green, blue and violet. But I guess I might change it a little bit because and maybe you seeing this watercolor. This is the art philosophy current set, and it has a lot of blues that I want to use, so we're going to use a lot off colors for the course. You can use just three colors for the year. 2020. The Pantone color is classic blue, and I just thought that it would be a nice theme for this painting, and you couldn't do that. Like each year. You just change the color. And last year I made the 2019 watercolor floral Vergis like this, and it wasn't a different colored. To start this project, we need to outline the numbers. So I did. I didn't try to sketch it a bit darker, so you can see it. Did they have? You may paint and you're going to start by painting some simple florals. So what? This is just a combination off small florals because we're also painting quite small numbers, and they usually start by paying dangerous four Bethel flowers. Then I'm just going to rinse my brush to create he lighter shade off blue. Okay, and then you can add some dark center. You can also grab 1/3 placed color, so just make use of any boo color that you have in your palate and just try to mix it up. Made some off the flowers more pigment than some can relate there. Okay, let's add something dark again. I'm just going to finish painting some small flowers and some maybe just petals. It doesn't have to be a full flower, No, and then you can also add like a blue green shade just to mix it up and add more interesting colors. Then, later on, I'm going to fill this in with some green leaves. Well, don't worry about the white caps, because we can try to fix that later. You can use sap green for your green color and then neither only can also add some Berries . It's nice. Add some dark bear. He's just to add some con dress. So I'm going over the pencils catch because they want this to look quite loose. You can paint some small stamps like this sticking out. It would be afraid to experiment. He we're almost done. I think I'm just gonna add some Berries, some of the areas. And also, don't worry, because you can always go back, neither just to add or fill in those gaps so we can add, um, sort of indigo color here, just add some dark Berries just for that corn crass. Okay, so I think it looks better with the Berries. All right, so I can go back to this number later. That's but 1 to 0 case. Let's just grab a light blue color. Um, just going to paint bigger petals for this, uh, number. I'm going to be just three battles, and then you can add something dark in the center, but add some more flowers. Seeger that they're bigger compared to the first number that we did. Okay, let's move around. This number on the one more over here. That's two greens mad, more blue. Okay, there. Now it's time to add something dark, just a deeper shade of blue before that contrast, so you can start with something light and then just add darker colors. Now it's time to add some green. Can you sap green? And that's just tried to paint some many leaves. You can add some small steps sticking out can also add a little bit off greenish yellow. This is, ah, nice color that gives life, too, like any floral painting. Then you can add some Berries, but make it green this time just makes um, round shapes in doing this just to add some texture to this painting, I can't think it looks prettier. Okay, so we're done, and you can just go back to double check. 10. Filled Florals-Watercolor Letter Part 2: for this Number two. I'm going to grab some light blue. You can use civilian blue in just eluded in a lot of water, going to paint some small fillers. I'm just going to the light least hamp my brush. This will serve like small flowers and then let's add some stems later so some small flowers can be darker. Some can be light there, Okay, And then now I mean the grab some green, and I'll make sure that this screen is not really, do you, Ted, because they want defined stamps for this part. If the green is to deal, you didn't. It will just mix with the small flowers. Okay, it's add some more fingers and just going to dab my brush straight like a darting motion. Then it's just connect them using a stem. What you can do is you can try to the group the flowers that you want to put in your letter or in your number. That's one way to organize the flowers that you will use. So for this number two, I'm going to use mostly fillers, and then we can alternate that with some four Peto flowers. Make this, it's Evan under. What? Yes, you can see. I'm just like stabbing. My brush is keeping it really loose. And there. Let's start with some fillers again. So what? I'm going to do it in going to put fillers, um, some four pedal or five little flowers, feelers and another set of flowers because sometimes you will run out of ideas. So it's also useful to create, like, patterns. Gates. I'm just doing that dotting motion again and adding some stem just really keeping it quite loose. You can add some small leaves. A swell. Okay, so now we're back through the four bridal flowers. He tried something dark in the center. Then you need to fix the shape off this number two. So I'm just going to add some leaves. Okay, let's go back to this later. So for this last number, I'm just going to mix different elements going to pain. Cem. Take five metal flowers. Be a green loose. Then let's add some Berries. You can change the color of the Berries and can be dreamed this well. Let's try that now cannot add some stem and let's trying to add some fillers. Nater. They want a light blue flower again, can you? Cerulean blue. We're called bald right here. I'm using the color seaside for this night. Blue color T. Now that's add the steep blue color can useful draw marine, but for discolor, this is cold jellyfish and the currents said Okay, so now I want, like a blue green color that's added tear. Then you can add some feelers, just a small flowers, and it's just do another dotting motion. Then you can also add different colors in this feather just to make it more interesting. Then, of course, we're gonna add some stem and they had some leaves, okay, and then can add some more blue. I think we need something with, like, a contrast that's paid a dark new flower. Now you can add one more filler over here. All right, we're almost done. And I'm just going to add some more foolish angry to add some leaves that are the greenish yellow you because this one just gives life to wait for a bouquet. Just makes things like brighter. No. Then just paint some stamps, taking out for some gaps that are oddly shaped. That's check out the top view. Okay, so it seems like we need to fix some areas just to make it a bid more defined. I'm gonna add some leaves over here just to add some height. He should try to just look at your painting from afar to see well which areas need more improvement or which areas need more leaves. And it also trying to rest your eyes first before going back to finishing this pain thing. Okay, you can fix this one. So usually just put leaves just to fix the shape. Okay? I think that we are done. 11. Negative Painting Part 1: Let's try to do a negative painting in this video, and I will be you saying a masking fluid. This is from the brand BPO, and reason why we use masking through with this because sometimes we want certain areas in our paper where in we want to keep it as is. You wanted to be white and we don't want any paint Touch that part. Usually people use this for doing highlights on their painting or in this case, we want to preserve this'll. Etter A. And you wanted to be white and you wanted to have a clean edge. And to start this project, um, we need this, um, just a cup off water way. It is a few drops off dishwashing liquid and reason why we need this. It's because we want to protect our brush from the masking fluid that masking to it, can destroy our brushes. So what this does is that it coats our brush with the soap and it just doesn't absorb the masking fluid in between the bristles but the's, our bristles are protected, and I'm just going to dip it in the soap and water mixture. So I have my masking fluid, and I'm just going to shake it because sometimes it settles down below. And what's nice about this masking fluid is that it's colored. So different brands may have their own version off the masking fluid so you can use any brand. Okay? And remember that you need to use a cheap brush for applying. Masking fluid did not use their expensive Russia's because it may get ruined. So this is just a synthetic brush from the brand want Mart. This is actually an acrylic brush, which I don't use us often. We decided to use it for applying masking fluid. So just apply this as iss, as if you're painting. You can use off that brush if you have Ah, cheap flat brush. And I've already sketched the letter A okay, and then after I have applied, the mass included, I will just let it dry before I start painting on this project. So after finishing this project, I will also be washing off my brush with ah, soap and water. Just Aaron sprints off the masking fluid in the brush. Right. So let me just finish doing this. There were almost done with this leather A I would just let it dry. All right, so let's start painting. And as you can see it already thinking about my paper, I just use regular masking tape. And I just wanted a clean edge for this painting. So I just taped it on my wood right here. And I have also prepared some greens because I plan to, um, put their friend types of leaves on this pain thing. I have some greens here. Sap green mixed with some indigo summer mixed with Brent Sienna summer mixed with violet. So just different shades off green. Okay, so I'm going to paint some law and slender leaves, begins. Just start great here because he can see if a paint on this part doesn't leave a stain or doesn't Paint doesn't leave paint on the paper because this part is protected with the masking fluid, and it just makes it a lot easier to paint something like this so it will look like us if the leaves are behind the letter. So I'm using just, um, sap green. You can add a little bit of indigo and then later on me can also try to layer some off the leaves and when you reach this part, um, it's also protected by this masking tape. So this one will leave a clean edge, and I will show that to you later. Wants me take out that masking tape. Right? So we've done that. We can also paid long and slender leaves on the other side. So just feel free to change the shades of green. I guess I'm gonna add a little bit off indigo to make mixture, So just have fun. There is my brush to create, Just listen or just a light shade of green. I'm just gonna grab some Prussian blue, makes the puppets of sap green and just paint some leaves over here. So I usually try to paint around the edges off this outline so that it's it's not totally white. If I take out the masking fluid, I'm gonna show that to you. Nature. Now it's add some brown to our green and the American paid on this side. It's just paint. Some round tip leaves can change the shade of the green that you're using. And don't worry if it doesn't look, um, symmetrical. That's okay, we can, but the second layer to cover up some of the mistakes now that scraps of indigo just gonna start painting some darker leaves. So whenever I do this style usually just paint random knee don't really have a pattern in mind. And this is such a off one exercise because it's almost like abstract and just following your gut and you're not No, you're not thinking too much about in the outcome of this painting. I think any shape that you put here, we're actually you're good, okay? And you can paints of expressive strokes. You just grab some sap green, just paint tiny leaves over here, just trying to fill in the white top, and you can pain some small leaves. This is a good way to, um, do some brush drugs as well. Okay, so add let's add some blue to our green Discreet something like eucalyptus. Examine the grab some greenish yellow. This is a beautiful color that will give, like, a pop of color to this painting. I just think that I did everywhere. Well, let's go to curse Green. I'm just gonna check if some of the leaves her dry. Yes, we can start to like, layer que and then it's pain Cem small leave like this. It's like stamping your brush. It's something that has corn pressing the add a bit off indigo. 12. Negative Painting Part 2: okay. Just slowly filling in the gaps over here. So some news can come from the bottom going up. It's add some greenish yellow again. Okay. And then when I add something over here at the Brit if Indigo Okay, So this smartass, totally white. And also in this area, you can add some more leaves. You think that we can add some fillers just to give it, like, a pop of color. So I'm gonna use, um, a little bit off this truly and blue, and you want a super diluted to rule, and I'm just gonna I thought some flour like that's and we're gonna put the stem there later. This is just too for then those caps. Okay, then let's grab some. Stop dreaming. Wanted to be quite dry on the brush, and that's at the stem. Okay. Summit in some parts, I'm just going to drill us, um, thin lines and also trying to add some darker leaves. Just do that. Add some contrast. They're almost done just trying to fill in the gaps on the sides and can also add veins in some off the leaves. So maybe you can add that once. This is a dry. So this is already dry, and I'm just going to add some veins in some off the leaves. So when you're doing this, just tried to put debates. Alternate me. Don't put vanes on all the use of that people look for interesting. I'm using a size six brush. Create some thin lines. I'm just gonna add a few more details. All right, so now let's take out this masking fluid so you can just rubble the masking fluid you sing , you're hot. Um, another way to take out the masking fluid is to use a rubber cement pick off. So this is the rubber cement Bob. It makes it easier to take out this'll masking fluid. Sometimes you can see if it in one goal. So it's nice to see those clean lines can get a little messy. If you don't have this rubber cement pickup, you can use a regular eraser. Okay, so it looks really good. So as you can see, this part has too much white and just going to fix it. And that's why I was tell you guys thought when you were doing this style, make sure to paint on the edges off the masking fluid. Where else You will end up with something like this. So I'm just going to paint a leaf. Okay. So that it just looks more defined. And I also like being something darker near the address off the letter. So it pops up some more can add from leaves over here. A swell. Okay, Now let's take out this'll masking date. Okay, Look at that clean edge. So nice. Now let's think about this. Side looks prayer thick to this is the last tape. She is so excited. So here is the finished product and just look so so pretty now. She attempted to add some gold details, and you can do that to you can add some golden These just so that this painting Schumer's and I love the edges over here, it's clean and have a clean edge. Letter A. So you can't do different styles which we don't want leaves. You can do some roses. Just fill this part with roses, and it will look really, really good 13. Filled Florals-Clean Edge Part 1: So in this video, we're going to paint a filled floral letter. But this time we are going to paint a clean edge. Um, floral. So as you can see here, this is one of our projects. And edges are not really straight and not clean because you want this time to be quite loose. But right here, we're going to paint a leather be and you want just to be your any clean and just trade. And the way to do that is to put masking fluid. So you're just going to pay it masking fluid on the edges off this letter B. So you don't really need to paint a thick amount off masking fluid. We just want to get the outline and just feel free to rotate your paper to get the right angle. Aside from the inside. Also need to put masking fluid on the outer part off the letter. All right, so let me just finished doing the outline, and I'll show you the finished product. Okay, so you're almost done, and you're just going to let this dry before we paint on top off this letter B. So this is already trying against five paintings, some cherry blossoms. I'm just going to quickly show you another version. So this is like the loose type of version. This one has a clean edge and neither all I'm going to put them side by side so you can see the difference. So let's start. Let's just get some very deal. You did permanent rules and going to paint some flowers first. You can start anywhere in this letter. You can start here at the top, so I'm just going to paint some five, um, Peto Jerry Blossoms. Then some can be just like three. And then to make it the bed more interesting, we cannot a little bit off yellow through this, um, permanent grossly can get a very, uh, peachy pink color. Okay, so we just want different like shades off pink so we can get you can put the darker pink meat there, and then you can grab a more pigmented permanent rose and just drop it in the center. And for the peach, call a recon drop in yellow in the center. So I'm doing that while this hour is still wet. And then if you want, we can start adding the branches so I'm just going to grab some. We're in Sienna room key. You can just branch out. So this one has spread too much. I'm just going to get my brush and just absorbed the excess Prince Sienna on this flower. All right. And then when the grab some creams on us, just add some buds just to add some contrast to this very dainty cherry blossoms. Okay, Now, let's add some more cherry blossoms, so we're not going to be strict with the shape you can add. Just different, um, number off battles if you want. No que and its ad A darker center. It's adds a more peachy color. Okay, maybe you can add a darker shade off. Nick Pink came in at the pit of yellow here, so I'm just changing the colors so that it just looks prettier. If you don't want Brits Channel for your branches, you can use print number. It's a darker brown, so that's just tried that and gonna show you it's a bit darker. Then you can add some branches and then some parts. So just start off our alternating the floral elements in this painting. All right, so let's add some more cherry blossoms, so some can actually be just single petals. You do look like just off spinners in this, um, being thing. And I had a little bit off yellow just to I had a different color gain. Its add something in the center, this darker color. 14. Filled Florals-Clean Edge Part 2: going to be anything more branches. And then I'm also going to absorb this part because it just bed too much. Okay, So what's nice about this painting is that we don't really need to worry about the look off each flower because you really won't see it once you painted in a group form like this. Okay, then it's add some buds and also add a little bit of here, Lou in some off the flowers, Okay? No, some flowers. We looked like it's, um, just half so you can paint just two battles over here, Then for some of the flowers. You can also try to hear them and add some more petals just to give it more depth. Now let's add the branches. So I'm just adding it like a random knee. It's Antam buds que. And then later on, we're going to add more details through the's cherry Brussels. So they're actually different types of change. Blossom selloff. Them have 25. That's all. Some of them have, uh, I think more than 10. And they also have different colors. So this one here were just doing some pinks and some peaches. And so right here Okay, then you can add some branches. Let's just close up this part. I'm just reading some, like filler paddles. All right, I think we're done. I might just wait for this one too dry and then some white gaps over here. We're just going to fit in with, um, some filler petals. Just so the shape looks good once we take out the masking fluid. Okay, this is already dry. And I'm just going to take out the masking fluid first before we add details to our painting. So you can just use your, um just your hand to rub it off, Or it can use a rubber cement pick up like this one. But let me just use your fingers and rub it off like this. Just a tip. If you're using asking for with Don't leave it for too long. I would say it. Just leave it for about, um, 24 hours From what I heard, if you leave it for a really long time that give me a week, it's going to be difficult to take out this masking fluid, so just try to remove it right away. Okay, So this part is still wet and he sort off smudge some area and make sure that your painting is dry like fully dry before you take out your mask. Include to your own to the last part. The three makes it easier if we have an over cement pick up. Does the job for you? Yeah, so we have being edges and it's really pretty. Wow, that looks so beautiful. And then let's just add some more details in the center of the chain blossoms. Oh, he's have here and yellow orange mixture and just going to create some thin lines in the center. Oh, the change blossoms. So I'm not gonna put details on all the flowers. I'm just going to choose some flowers, so this will make it look more interesting if you spread it apart. Okay, you can ads right here. You can use a smaller brush. I'm using a size six, usually a smaller brush. It's easier to paint something lines, and also some dots key can add. Maybe over here, so you can also pain different flowers. Using this style, you can paint grosses or pure knees. Um, you just need to put some masking fluid on Thea outline off this letter. Okay, so we are done. I hope that you enjoyed this part, and I'm just going to quickly show you the difference. All right, so this one has, like, a clean look. This one has a looser off you because we don't have ah, clean edge. But if you like both styles and it just it depends on your preference. And they really wanted to show you guys just different ways to create watercolor four letters. 15. Metallic Letter-Muted and Bright Part 1: and this year the let's paint a metallic watercolor letter. And for this theme, we are going to go with something that is quite faint for muted and something that is pulled, and it can also be or something bright. So I just love the contrast between these two flowers and you're going to recreate this painting. And of course, you can use any leather that you want. So I have here a letter t again, and I just drew this freehand since it's easy to, um, to draw a leather tea. But of course, you can also use a stencil. You seeing the printed letter on a bond paper? Do start. I need to makes this color. So this is just a mixture off just ultra Marine and a little bit off burnt number so you can get a neutral color kind of a grayish color and just add a lot off water so that it looks really nice on the paper and then not too dark. Okay, so I'm using my size six silver brush black velvet, and then it started to pay, um, one petal over here and I just change up the angle off the timer also that you can see it better. So I'm gonna paint one battle here, another on the left, and three like its to grace. I'm gonna add a little bit off Ultra Marine so that it becomes a bit bluish. Another one over here, it's just add some on the top part, and I'm just making some random strokes and going up and down. Then you're going to fix the shape off this flower so we can extend this parts of more. Okay, then we can fix the shape again in a while. For now, I'm just going to grab the color sepia. So this is like a dark brown color, and you want a really pigmented mixture. It means there's just less water. I'm gonna put some strokes in the mental just to add that contrasts who came directly brush and just fix some parts. You can also go back through the center again to give it more definition later. Okay, so we're done with this. Let's move on to the roast. Okay, So I have here in mixture off permanent rose and some crimson. I just wanted a bold color in contrast to this are really more faint and muted color. So you're gonna paint a roast here? I'm gonna start with. Ah, I off the rose and just add some thin and quick See strokes. So I have here. Ah, my size eight brush. And I just need to grab a little bit of water, just clean water. And I have just, um, fade some off the strokes here. Two, we are just going to paint bigger, um, petals. Okay. And I'm gonna make some more strokes, and I've just fade that again. Foreign painting, the tiny strokes so that we have a guide on where the next battle will be. All right, So don't worry about this, um, first layer, because we're going to paint another layer later. So I'm just going to try to add a little bit off brown to this pink color. A little bit of brown and also a little bit off, um, purple. I just wanted to get a dark cooler, and then you're gonna put that in the center, let some of the colors plea. That's okay. Then. We were gonna go back to this rose in a while. I just need toe wait for this layer to dry. Okay? So now we can move on to leaves and pillars for the green leaves. I'm gonna grab some, um, sap green and you can add a little bit off CPL together warm tone. Then you can add the leaves over here. Just add some thin stems sticking out. Then you can add some other fillers later. Okay, So I'm gonna Reince my brush so that we can get rid of the color and read a lighter shade of green. Then I'm gonna add some feelers here, maybe some buds, and it's add some stems over this side. So I'm just going in in between the gaps off the two flowers. So you're going to fill it with leaves, so let's grab some more, um, sap green. You can also add a little bit of blue, or in this case, and my add some indigo. It gives that really nice contrasts this flower. So I'm gonna add them more brown to make green. Okay, then you can add some over this area 16. Metallic Letter Muted and Bright Part 2: Okay. This one is a little bit of dark green. Then it's put some yellow buds. I think we can grab some yellow Kirk. So I want a just a muted yellow. Yeah, I can put it here. I'm using my size a round brush. It just gives this, like, pop off color through our painting. You can also add a little bit off the small pink buds. Okay. So I just mean, then the floods, and then we need to add some stem is to connect it to the hurry. Floral arrangement. We're almost done getting ad. Ah, some leaves right here. Anything. It's nice to add, um, some leaves that they're a big pinkish. So this is just a mixture from a while ago. I'm gonna add some green to the pink ada. Like a muted color. Okay, now we're ready to add some gold details on this painting. All right, so you're going to troubleshoot this painting because looking at this painting on the screen, the letter T looks a little small because we painted a big floor else. So I'm just going to fix the size off this letter and make it a bit bigger. So that it looks good. So I have here my paint. This is the art philosophy said, and this is the metallic accents I usually love mixing these two gold colors, but you can use any gold paint that you have. Okay, so let's start. I'm using a flat brush, but you can also use your round brush to paint. Um, I just find it easier to pain using a, um, you see a flat brush. Okay, so let's try to paint a nice coat off gold paint. The look forget to breathe it. Sometimes in their painting, Details like this should be straight. Sometimes we hold their breath so that you can cause in create many well and pay the street line. But I can say that a flat brush really helps when it comes to painting straight lines. I guess if we're going to paint some curve lights, you can using a round brush instead. Okay, we're almost done with the top part. Just, of course, a lot of concentrating. Okay, you should need the edges are more difficult to paint. All right, so we're done with the top part. It's just tried to zoom in. You can see it better. So I'm gonna paint around the leaves, and then when this gold paint is dry, we can also paint some more leaves on top of it. Okay, So I'm I'm good with this. You can add some gold details over here. Just the small gaps between the two flowers. So this is a really easy project, and they're Soltis is so amazing. Aside from using gold, you can also mix in some metallic pink so that you can create the guru schooled color. Or if you have ah, bronze metallic paint ticking. Use that us. Well, if you don't like metallic paints, you can use just regular, um, water cooler. Okay, then there are more jobs over here just going to try and fill them in. Okay, So I painted over this leave, so I'm just going to paying another being color later. All right, so we are done with the gold part, so it's starting to look really, really good. And right now I have here a mixture off just crimson. A little bit of violet and some brown just to get like that. My ruin color. This a dark color and gonna paint a second later on this roast. Let's just try to zoom in. Okay? So I'm just gonna pain on top off where we painted the first new year. Just paint some see strokes. We came to the rinse my brush and just feed some off the strokes. Just add more, um, Matos to make it look just more defined. Didn't add a little bit off permanent roasts. This mixture just add a bit of a glow to this rules, I think. Okay, so now let's go back to this painting. I'm gonna makes another neutral color. This is just ultra marine with a little bit off burnt umber and a lot of water. And just paint another layer us well on this grayish, um what flower? So this will just give it more definition, okay? And then when the grab some see pia and add more definition to this center, this ad, somethin strokes, okay. And then it's grab some more green. I feel like we can add a few more. Um, stamps over here. Just some stamps, neck sticking out, make it look more expressive and add some leaves. Okay. And then I'm gonna paint over this part because I painted some gold on this area and just going to cover it up again. Okay, let's try consume out. You can also paint on top off the gold area so you can add some leaves and then add some more layer off leaves over here. Okay, Well, we are almost done. And my tip is to always look at your painting from afar just to see if you need to add a few more details. I'm just going to clean this one up. All right? So I think we are done, and I'm really excited for you guys to try out this style. And I hope that you enjoyed beating this with me. 17. Metallic Letter-Lush Floral Part 1: So for our second project on metallic watercolor letter, we're going to do this letter s and for this particular painting actually did a free hand growing off a letter s. But what I'm gonna do with our demo now, um, Miss Eustace Template. So I just rented out this mother s and transferred it tooth. This paper, I'm going to follow this letter s instead, we can off course use any letter that you want, and also you can choose any fun. So this is what's nice about the class. You can really customize it according to you to your like, let's start by grabbing some orange color and going to paint the two roses here first. So what you can do is you can also draw some circle so that you know where to put the floor else. Let's start with the center and then add somethin. See strokes and try to do this quickly so that you'll get a nice shape. I'm just going to rinse my brush and just create bigger petals. He can also makes your orange and makes permanent gross with yellow. Or use an orange straight out from the tube, OK, and you're done with the first rose and then we're going to add of a second layer after this one. Grace who came? Let's start to paint this 2nd 1 Don't worry too much about this first leader again. When you do the second year, we can cover some of the mistakes. So that's OK. If you made some mistakes on the first layer, he's now. I want a darker center. I'm gonna grab So burnt Sienna. It's a nice, uh, brown and just put it in the center also right here, okay, and can add more flowers. I'm gonna choose a violet color. Just something that's in contrast with this bright, um, orange color. Let's just be the simple five pedal flower Just going to, like, sway my brush and leave some white spaces begin grins airbrushed the change the she All right, So we're not going to be so restrict about the shape of this flower. It's a gave its nod. Symmetrical. All right, so we're done with that, and then you can add some, um, flowers over here. So I have here read a looted cerulean blue, and you're going to paint some four petaled flowers. So again, this is going to be a good contrast with the orange. It's adds a few more. So for some of the flowers, it doesn't have to be for better does some can be just three because some can be just like a filler. Um, ignorance my brush and let's grab some sap green color. And while this one is still wet, um, we're going to put some green stabs in between and just let it bleed into the blue color, and that will look really, really pretty when it dries. I'm gonna put some stem sticking out and add some leaves, okay? So we can also add some brown toe our green. Then it's painted over here so usually like painting the stem first so that I can see if it looks good before I add the leaves. So let me grab some sap green again, and it's just paint some small leaves and just stab our brush just to put more variety off leaves. Okay, so I think we're done in this area can probably just add some news later when it dries, and I'm going to add some and to go to my sap green just to get a dark color. It's a deep green color, so let's put it in between these two flowers. Just make a nicely. Then it's paint some tiny leaves, ignorance my brush. Then let's grab some more diluted cerulean blue. And I'm just going to put the filler over here. Has put some tiny gods okay, And then let's grab some sap green and connect them all together, okay? 18. Metallic Letter-Lush Floral Part 2: So we need to add more leaves on this side. I'm gonna add some indigo toe way shot green. So it really looks nice when you add some leaves. Um, that they're sticking out, it will look like more loose. Okay, then I think I can put some filler, maybe a bit of blue over here, Okay. Just to sort off balances out. So now let's start adding the gold, and then you go back through some of the details on florals over here, so it's not time to add some gold. I'm just gonna mix Thies, too. And when I try to use my flat brush again So what you can do is you can also rotate your paper so that it's easier to get some off the angles, right? And you can also use a round brush. Kayson been, are a tape might be for that it's easier. It just takes practice to do it. This and they just really love what the gold adds to this painting makes it look more extra . Try to make sure that my gold paint iss um, quite wet so that it's easier to glide onto the paper. So before the small details. I might just use a round brush. Okay, so we're done despite we have one more to go. Que? What's nice about, um A That brush is that you can try to move dear angle of the brush so that you can create a nicer stroke. And when you're doing this, it's important to make sure that your pencil out minus quite light. Because once you paint on top off the pencil outline, you cannot erase it anymore. This For this video, though, I intentionally did make the outline, um, darker than usual, just so that it will show up on the camera. Let's try to zoom it in a bit more. Okay, so now I'm gonna go with my realm brush. I'm using the size six and you're going to go into the small caps. Okay, I think it looks good. It's a bit more over this area. Okay, so now we can move on to adding more details to this painting. So let's received adding more details on the road. I am just going to grab some burnt sienna and just paint the same strokes for the second layer. Just add some see strokes, and with Iran's my brush and just feed some off the strokes so that it doesn't look too harsh and not just not too bold and it's through the 2nd 1 So I just need a few strokes like this and then just faded. I think we're done with this roast. And now we might need to add just a few more finishing touches on this painting at a bit off leaves in some areas, just some stem sticking out. Okay, Pretty happy with this, But I think we can add some leaves here. I think that he looks better. All right, so we are done. 19. Freehand Watercolor Letter: way. We're going to learn how to paint a free hand style off watercolor for a letter. And they have here a sample off a letter. C Socialism started this project. We need to go the letter, The letter of your choice. So I'm juicing other C and I'm just going toe drawing freehand. So it really depends on the style that you want. And to start this project, we need to pinpoint the main flowers first. So let's start with for this example, I started with the rules first, This is the main flower and the adages. Medium sized flowers beside it. And then I just branched out using some leaves and fillers. So for here, I think I'm gonna start with painting the pink puny. So that will be the main flowers for this project. So the start with Aiden muted permanent grows. You can change the color if you want to. And then you can also try to grow some petal so that you have a diet. So I'm going to start with two front petals and I'm leaving some white species pain. If you want a more in depth tutorials on the pew knees, I have a specific class for that case I'm making all my strokes are quite pointy. Then you can fix this later if the shape does it look right. So it's easier to move, um, along the petals if it's still quite damp. And then just one more Peto over here. So it it looks like a cup, and you can extend this part a little big. So it's like everything's pointing to this part. All right, so we're done with this, and then I'm gonna add one more flour over here. Um, but we're just going to retain the paper so that I can get the angle right. All right, so for the second puny, I wanted to be a little bit on the PCI side, so I have added a little bit off yellow to my permanent rules, and then it's just paint. Some potatoes doesn't have to be symmetrical, so just keep it really loose so you can rent your brush to create the lighter shade for the petal treasure of date and just check what it looks like. Okay, so we're going to add some more leaves over here just to form the letter C or we do that I'm gonna add just a yellow center for thes Pune. Ease. Just great. Somethin strokes in the middle, and then you can go back in to add take a darker shade. Later, I'm gonna grab some sap green for the leaves, and it's just tried to form a lot off lease until we reach a curve shape so that it would look like a letter C. Then you can also add some, and there's along the way and could also change the shade off the green color. Let me just add some indigo just to add the dark green T. Then you can add some certainly, and drew a very riveted cerulean blue just adds from others tiny thoughts off flowers. Okay, then, um, using a size eight. But you can also use another brush to help you with, like switching colors so that you don't have to keep on rinsing or brush can also paint some tiny leaves. That's also add some Berries. So I'm just gonna grab some purple Berries. Okay, let's grab some sap green again. Just connect that, All right? Just grade some random leaves. You can add a little bit off brown to our green. Okay, we're almost done with this side, so we can add more details later. We just want, like a generic, are a general shape for this letter C, and then we're going to make it look fuller later. So that's not Start with the bottom. I start with, um, just sap green again and just create some leaves alternately. Another tip is to also just put some stems just as a guide, so that it's easier for me to know where to put the leaves, but that this, of course, optional. But now let's add some small fillers. Just thought you're brush the pre eighties like small flowers, and it will look really, really pretty. You can even add um, two colors in one filler like this and add a little bit off purple if you want, then that let's add some Berries. So let's add a darker shade of green. I just added some indigo, and you can add some smaller leaves like this. And another thing is just to add some stamps sticking out like this just quick. Ah, thin strokes. And they do instantly me this look fuller, and that's adding a little bit of blue our green and then now were done in this part. So I think I'd like to add some more leaves over here. Let's just grab some sap green. You can add some purple buries over here. Just add some stem. Then he can also layer some of the leaves. So this is I'm already dry. I'm just going to paint on top off it just to make it a bit fuller. They were almost done. I'm gonna grab some burnt sienna and just within the center off the puny just to add some more definition. So I just needed something lines. And now I'm just adding some thoughts. So this will make it look even prettier and just a bit more defiant. And it's just add some stamps sticking out just to make it a bit loose. All right, All right. So he are done. It's very simple. So I'm just going to give you a comparison again. This is what he painted today. And then this was a painted the other day. They're both leathers, see? So, um, just a recap. You have to figure out the mean flowers first. And then after figuring out the main flower, just branch out, you sing some leaves and some fillers 20. Conclusion : way. Standard class. Thank you so much for watching. If you're going to create a project, let's just quickly make recaps on number one. You have to choose a leather that you want to pay and the number do. Choose the color combination. Number three you choose the flora animus it's wanted include in the letter, and also you can create a pattern beforehand before you pay the actual or final painting. Number four. Of course. Don't forget to have fun while painting. If you want to make a negative painting like this, but you don't have masking fluid. Don't worry. You can just leave this as a white space, just trying not to paint beyond the line or the outline off the letter. Whenever I pay the class, I always think off how students can apply it, um, and how it can be practical. So I think that this last, it's really great for you guys. This is a very good wait to do commission projects, and that's because this is hiding customizable. You can change the phone, just print out a different phone, and then you can also change the colors and also this sign. So it's It's very, very e c. And I also think that it's a good way to customize things in your home or if you're throwing a party and you wanted to create table numbers, you can use the techniques that you've learned here and apply it through making people numbers. And they're just so so many ideas, and it really excited. How about your projects and how you can apply this into your daily life or into your party piece. So I hope that you enjoyed this class and that you've learned a lot. So I am looking forward. Their projects. Don't forget to use this hashtag if you're going to tag me on instagram. And also, I would appreciate it if you could upload your project in the Project gallery, section off the class and leave a class review. So that's it. And thank you. I was in my next class 21. Bonus Video Mother's Day Part 1: in this video. We're going to paint this beautiful painting for Mother's Day. So let's start. So the start with the paper I'm using Saunders water forward. As you can see, it's rectangular in shape, but it when you need a square shape paper. So I just drew a line over there so that the size of this paper will be nine inches by nine inches. And then I just got your own shaped object, and I just trees the shape because I need a round shape for this painting. And then it's just write the word Mom. You can also just write down the initial offer Mom's name. Or if you're not doing this for Mother's Day, you can amuse. Ah, different word. Can we love or hello? Or, um, it just depends on what you want and what's nice about this project. I started this very customizable, and you can use this for any other location. So the next step is to paint this word Mom with masking fluid. We want to leave this word untouched without any painting on it, but we're going to paint flowers all over this round shape. So the branded I'm using ISP EBU. It's called the Growing Gone, but it's similar to a masking fluid. So what I love about this massing fluid is that it has color. So it's easy to know which areas you have already applied masking fluid on. And I'm just going to fill in all the letters, so I'm just doing it. Snow Knee. Um, of course, you can use a different fund. You can try to print out and trace the word on this painting, but for this project, I just prefer my own handwriting. Okay, so let's move one to leather. Oh, Oh, my tip for applying masking fluid is that make sure that you are able to fill in the edges so that it comes out clean when you peel off. Theme asking fluid. So now your own to the last letter. Don't forget to, um, wash this brush right away after using your masking fluid so that it doesn't dry out in your brush because you should be masking fluid. It, um, ruins your brush, so just make sure to clean this brush right after you use it. I just use just regular dishwashing soap and water, so we are done and right now let's just wait for this to dry before we had onto painting the flowers. So let me just touch this if it's dry. Okay, so it looks good. Um, so let's just get the permanent roast color. I want to paint some roses in this laurel painting, so I'm gonna paint one rose over here and other want over there. Let's makes a nice and concentrated permanent roast mixture, so it means more paint, less water. We just want the center for rose to be more, um, concentrated or with more color. I'm going to start with a teardrop shape for the center. And then it's bean. Some small, um, wispy strokes. Small letter C strokes. And then, as we go further away from the center, you're also going to make the petals a little bit bigger. Now let's just dip your brush in the jar and just elude that pink color to create a lighter shade off permanent gross for the other part off the rose. We can also add a little bit of yellow and mix that with our permanent rose just to create like a peachy pink color. It's a nice dainty color will be adding more death leader. So right, I'm just speaking. This rose. Ah, bit soft. Let's move on to the lower right off the letter. I'm going to start painting out another rules so she can see you whenever I paint on top off the masking fluid. There's no color on the letter itself because it's protected by them asking through it. So the effect of three doing IHS After we take out the masking fluid, it will look as if the rose is behind the letter, and that's why I'm beating it near the letters. So that's grab some yellow again and its mix, another peachy pink color used to make it look more interesting. I'm also leaving some white spaces in between the petals or the sea strokes that I'm doing . So we're now done with the two roses, and while we're reading for this to dry, let's start adding some flowers in between the two roses. So I have here some ah cerulean blue and turquoise. So I'm want to paint some four petal flowers in between these two roses, and they want a bunch of them in the middle. We're not going to be super strict about the number of petals. Some flowers can be just three, but all some can be to that is because we want some of them to look like fillers. Or some of them May Seamus, if it's hiding behind some of the flowers. So what I'm doing now is I'm adding flowers near the edges off the letters so that you can get a nice clean letter when you take out the masking fluid. If you left one part, um, without ah flower or leaf. Then when you peel off the letter, for example, the letter o it won't look like a leather or because there will be a white space outside the letter. Okay, so now I just added ultra marine blue. You can add any blue color that you have and just change the value, make some off the blue. Parker's off them lighter so that it will look more pleasing. And then now I am just going to grab some indigo, and I'm gonna put the thought in the centre off the flowers just to give it more death. When beating this project, I suggest starting with the main flowers first, and then you add in all the fillers leaves the small Berries so that you can close in the gaps. So what you can also do is you can start painting your main flower in the middle, and then from there on, add some flowers beside it. Then you can go clockwise so that you will not be overwhelmed and you will know where to go next. Now let's grab some sap green, and I'm gonna add some leaves and also some lines in between the blue flowers that will look like stems. So that's what they dio to close in some of the white gaps. So just keep adding some leaves and stamps. Don't worry. Yes, everything will come together. Um, just keep on adding some fillers. Now I want to greet the peachy pink color, so I'm mixing yellow and permanent rose and then just adding a bit of water. Then let's paint a small, puny all right there and starting with one pedal first, I am keeping it loose and just creating some loose strokes. So let's paint a petal over here. It looks like a folded batter so that, uh, this will look like the puny is, um, facing side view. Now I'm grabbing some permanent yellow light, and I'm just adding the center of the puny and just creating somethin lines, and I'm nothing. Some off it lead into the wet battles. You can also add a more concentrated, permanent gross and just drop it in the battles just to create Ah, shadow. All right, so I guess you have most of the main flowers, and right now I'm just going to create one more flour right here and let's just grab permanent yellow orange, or you can use any orange color that you have. I'm going to paint a big five petal flower, So just press the Bedi off the brush until you trade. Um, a petal shape and sometimes one stroke. It's not enough. So you have to add another stroke. Sometimes you just use the tip off your brush to create sort of a curved line. And use that in order to complete the look off the petal. And that will also make the petals quite lose. Um, it will give that wispy stroke look, four, the center of this flower. I'm gonna UC Pia to give it more death. And while the orange part is still wet, I'm going to drop in the C p A and let it bleed with the orange part. Now let me just grab some sap green, and I'm going to paint some strokes that will look like stems. I'm also going to paint some leaves beside this flower. Um, well, it's the wet so that the green and the orange color will sort off blend together to look a little bit, um, looser compared to when it's dry. And then this. Just add some more leaves again in some more stamps. I'm going to add some fillers over here. Let's grab some permanent yellow light, and I'm going to create some small dots using the tip of my brush. Just lightly tap your brush. It's us. If you're stamping the brush on through the paper to create, um, a small dot that will look like small flowers, and right now you can actually add a little bit off oranges Well, and then now let's grab some green and going to add some stamps that I will attach through those yellow flowers. So you can also add some small leaves if you want, and the mixture off this green paint iss ah, little bit concentrated, and I didn't not put a lot off water because I don't want it to, Ah, bleed into the yellow part so much because they still want to see the yellow flowers. So just be careful with adding the stem. All right, so now let's move on to part two off this project. 22. Bonus Video Mother's Day Part 2: This is part two off the video, and right now I'm going to paint some fillers and I'm preparing a mixture off permanent violet. I'm going to paint some petal like strokes, and I'm going to do them in clusters. We can also add a little bit of blue toe are violet paint, and then we can try to dip your brush in the water jar and, just like the urine, sit to create a lighter shade off violet. As you can see, there is a beautiful contrast between the darker on boulder permanent violet and the lighter shades. I'm holding the brush, um, almost towards the end off the handle, just to keep it pretty loose. And then right now, I'm just going to grab some sap green and add some stems. Connect all of the's petals that looks like ah buds. You can also try adding some names by now. Add some stems sticking out. Let's try to dip our brush in the water and just add some strokes over there. Let the violet lead into the green leaves and you'll see a beautiful bleed over there. Let's switch to a top view, and, as you can see It's slowly coming together and you have a space over there on the left. Let's paint a yellow flower just to break up that area. I am using permanent yellow light and you will probably pain just a few battles. Me, we just three or four and then we can add a little bit of orange to our brush. Just give it a little extra character through the flower. So most of the time I'm also using just almost a tip off my brush to create some strokes so that I can control how big the pedals will be, and it will also make it more expressive. And then, right now, I just added some red into the center off this flower. Now let's grab some sap green and going to paint some leaves beside the yellow orange flower and just fill in the white cap. So if there are so white caps, um, don't worry about it. We will definitely go back to adding some more fenders. And it was that cap. I think it would look nice to add a different shade of green, so I added some Brent Sienna to my sap green to create that earthy green color. It's a nice addition to this painting. Let's try to paint some long and slender leaves. Just try to drag your brush onto the paper to create thes leaves. Now let's grab permanent violet again, and I'm going to paint. Some fillers had spent some buds, and we can also add some blue to our violet. And again you can ruins airbrush to create a lighter shade. Ah, file it. Just keep this further interesting by adding different values. And then, of course, we're going to add some stem and amusing sap green. So to make this interesting, you can also make sap green and a violet for the leaves and this them. Now let's paint somethin's them sticking out, and I'm just using the tip of my brush to create that and with a smaller brush, I am just going to dab some yellow flowers, and I'm going to add a little bit off the orange paint, a swell and also a little bit off red so that it doesn't look too flat. So I'm just slowly dabbing my brush to create some brushstrokes that look like small flowers. Then we can grab some green and just add some stamps just to connect those yellow flowers. You can also paint some leaves overlapping the other flowers that he painted before. We're almost done feeling in this brown shaped painting, so I'm just going to paint some small Berries. I'm using cerulean blue, but of course you can use a different color for this painting. I chose some bright and happy colors. Let's go back to a top view video, and as you can see, there are white gaps in between, some off the flowers and I am just going to grab some greenish yellow. If you don't have that color, just add more yellow to yourself. Dream and create a yellow green color. I'm going around this painting and just adding some small leaves, some stems sticking out just so I can feel in those small white gaps so that this painting will look really full and lush right now. Try to observe the sides off thes three letters, so we want to have some paint on the edges off these letters so that when you take out this mass included, if you look clear. So, for example, the leather Emma looked like a leather em because we were able to fill in the white space outside the letter, and I'm just grabbing some extra colors similar to the flowers behind the letter. Once we're done with that, let's add some finishing touches to some off the flowers. So right here I just grab some Crimson Lake and I am going over this reus and following the first layer that we did so in the center, I painted a dark for creams and leg, and then for the outer part off this rose. I just diluted more color in my brush and just created some soft potatoes that are also bigger. Just continue painting. Some see strokes. And so right now I just rinse my brush as you can see the color and my brushes. Now a night there because we added a second near the roses, now have more depth in them. Let's grab some yellow orange color, and I'm going to add some details in the center off this puny I'm just adding some small short strokes and just adding some thoughts. And then right now I'm going to grab some red, and I'm also going to add some more details to this power so This is the part where are details to most off the flowers, and right now I'm going to grab some indigo and just add that through the center, and you can see immediately how it looks a lot better than before. Let's grab diluted violet color and just at the second layer through this filler, just to give it more volume. I'm also grabbing something turquoise and just adding some petals just to give it more in depth. All right, so we're done with the painting, Portia, and I'm just going to wait for everything to dry before we try to take out the masking fluid. This is one of my favorite things about using masking fluid. I love taking out a mask included and seeing the clean edges that it leaves. I am using a rubber cement pick up to rub off the masking fluid, but you can also use your finger toe. Just rub it off, and sometimes you can just try to peel the masking fluid. So when you're creating this bonus project, Samuel Greeny to follow the painting that I did, you can, of course, make it your own and paint your own all flowers. You can try feeling in this round shape with just grosses and leaves, and that you look pretty a swell. Another idea for you is to create a painting that has a cooler theme. She can't do all blue flowers, all paint flowers. It would also be nice to incorporate the favorite flower off the recipient of this painting . All right, so we are done peeling the masking fluid and it's so pretty right? But right now, let's just try to fix the letters and you can. Smoothing out the ad, Jess, we can try to paint the sides off the letters with the same color, asked the flower behind it. Just try to control the water in your brush when you're doing this so that you don't get like a big puddle off pain. So I'm just trying to polish the sides off the letters. It is actually optional. I just prefer having a clean edge letter, so I'm looking at the screen off my camera. I think we need to add a few more leaves, so amusing greenish yellow, and I'm just adding some tiny leaves in between. Some off the gaps. I usually check the overall look off the painting on my camera. So sometimes I'll take a photo and look at it. And that's how I will see if I need to add more leaves or if I need to fill in some off the gaps. Okay, congratulations. We are done and we finish this beautiful painting. I hope that you enjoyed this bonus video, and I look forward to seeing what you can create from this project.
