I walked you through all the X supplies required. Then we will learn the technique required to paint flowers, leaves and pillows. We've been repenting to class projects in this class at the end of this class. I'm sure you'll be confident enough to pay this loan using watercolors. Without any further ado, Let's dive into our for the chapters. 2. Art supplies: all right, so the materials required for this painting square size 300 years and people I'm so watercolor papers for practice the colors. I use art philosophy. Watercolor Khan, 50 said. Here, I'll be using the color Morse Jenny from 1 50 Sick of using only two colors for this basic coming to bullishness, I'll be using Prince in Neptune. Size eight on Princeton will touch size four. Then we have the Super Bowls on a campus to make the circle that's only books or plays. 3. Know your colors: Okay, So before moving on door painting section letters first I did Jenny. Hello. From my pretties, you can use any other beach or being load your brush with paint on. Gradually apply water, keep applying or go to the beans, but a little bit more transparent. You'd so, as you see, the diluted toe will be used for the base layers off the flowers. Now I'll paint green color that is most from confidence. Again. Load your brush with paint on. Keep hiding water until you reach its transparent state. The concentrator tone will be used for detailing on the dilute. Trento will be used for the base layers. Actually, you do painting on. You'll understand what colors will be used to wear. So for the base layers I have used this diluted toe on for the retailing purpose. It is. So it is this highly pigmented colors 4. Techniques: in the Steptoe. Let us learn some simple techniques to paint flowers and leaves. First, take some diluted being on painted with random Chief, which looks like lover. You need not worry about the shipment size in this stage. Okay, I'll paint some more. Random shapes were diluted. Once you applied this be pick a clean brush and gently apply it around the Commons so that you don't have any sharp edges. Now, Lord of Pigmented Pains and Abbott in the center of these flowers to are some depth things . The base layer is made. The concentrated pains will spread easily, which will endure Gil depth to our lovers. Next one is a flower from side, so I painted like this, almost like a semi circle and then having the concentrated beads the corners. Next, we will paint a bird with same technique that is playing the bass meal and then slightly dropping the concentrated beat. So these are all basically us. We will add the details ones. It dries completely, So now we will paint the lose they couldn't deny your ankle on. I'm making some random chiefs like use. I mean green, and then, as you can see I'm adding some pains randomly. In some places, all you need to do is being some desire and shaves off leaves. It could be long, are spiky or anything like that when you color and then in the corners you can add some darker paint. Okay, so let us go back to flowers Now. It is a great already. So now I'm taking concentrated Being on linking some shaves are no. I didn't detail to the flowers get you some spaces when you're being doing this lanes. Okay, let me show you the second level. I'm adding concentrated pain in those santo. And as I go outwards, I'm making your diluted in color. Next for the leaves, I'm adding the details with concentrated color just around the edges off the leaves. Make sure to keep it random. If you observe, I'm leaving some spaces in between and not painting the continuous lines. - All right, let's go ahead and place a florals and leaves together. I'll be paying thinks levels first and then followed by a lease. Firstly, we'll add the base layers for dog lovers on, then are the concentrated pain in the center off every level, like next painting baseball lose and then I didn't constituted paid beams trying the places . Okay, so once the base layer is right, we will move on to our details to the lovers, just being some random lanes in a circular motion. I'm for the burns just arts, um Darko color in the dog park if you see it off lovers and leaves our own disconnected. So we need toe are some fillers everything for those on something that you can use it to fill The spaces in between have added I lift it up using a people okay for pillows. What you can do is you can add this shapes wherever you feel. The arrangement looks empty, your grief looks complete connective lovers and with the pillows that will make it look pretty. But don't act too many off them. Otherwise it would look my seat. We will use the same techniques in our next class project. So, without any further ado, let's get started with the last project 5. Class Project #1: All right, so let us begin with the class project. I'll use that far side of the paper. Now take a compass on gently. Draw our so called make sure the pencil lines are not dark. Okay, So first I'll take this tiny little pink color and start applying this base layer of flowers. Factors almost circular in shape. We don't worry about the shape and size in the initial layer, because anyway, it is going to be covered with the be dealing works, and it just barely visible. So, in the border region off the circle, I'll keep the elements cooler on as we go upwards. We'll make go to no place. These elements I learned, um, places on the circle. Now I'm applying water around these layers to soften the edges. Okay. I guess I'm late. You're the layers are all three diet on. I'm not able to blend it with. Okay, Never mind. I can fix that. So we'll apply the concentrated paint in the center and then apply clean water around so that it spreads easily. I think this looks better. No. - Next we will paint the leaves First. We will start with the base layer using diluted green color stating the lives with, like, this color possible on place them and we'll use direction paying them around every flower that we have been there now take some slightly in the Coca Cola and under factors on the leaves. - Three paint a small early is on top. Part of the circle on the girl lives in the water park. - Like now, take some concentrated beans. It's timeto I've some details store lease. We'll be using the tailor brush for district. Okay, so there are some lines on the off. The basically know wherever the colors, they're just outlining with this concentrated color. Okay, I would recommend removed low strokes. Do not restrict yourself. You cover each any media, The government of new one Isom strokes over the leaves, base layer off billions. I mean on the leaves. Andi Peters, step on all the leaves. Yeah, - right now, if we need, there are some spaces in between the flowers and the leaves to fill them up. It will be using the pillows. The laws are something that are used to fill up. This space is I'm some pillows in your lower than some on the other leaves or the birds being this below the radius directions. Now, letters are some. Begin to the flowers, big, slightly dark, Okelo, and start painting the lines in circular motion. This will. I stepped off hours and also gives it ownership. Now we will. Are you stopping flowers on the pillow that the krieger I will go on with another layer of retailing. So I think that s color. And aren't someone items off lines on the leaves to add someone to the bending? Some of you must be wondering why I am doing so many layers and all that when you can paint beautiful flowers with single strokes. There are so many are artists out there do it so gracefully. But to be honest, I'm not comfortable with that style of Florence. I have always tried painting with single strokes, but the ISMs havin terribly bad. So after many Thailand arrows, I discovered my old way off being Florence, you might have gone to same problems, so don't give this a try. I'm sure you love creating this pretty normal. Yes, I agree. You this time do me. But definitely it is going to be worth trying it. All right, So we're done with this class project. There's another class project in the next chapter where doctors are time lapse. Video on it is almost similar. All right, we're done with the class project One like this one want to our next chapter. The painting in the class project to is similar, but the proportion of the flowers and leaves are slightly bigger. 6. Class Project #2: Okay, let us get started with a second painting. I first take you red beans on Applied us basically owes for flowers. This kind of levels are slightly bigger and darker in color. Apply the concentrated pains in the center off every level. Apply clean moto. If the layer has on the drive. Next we will be in the base layers for our news. Take some diluted beans and apply it in random. Leave shapes in later years. Directions have some concentrated pains on this wet based Leo to create some parties on the bees. The pain, the smaller marks in the top part Off the read the area between the flowers and the leaves are empty, so we will add some pillows. You are these pillows and Varndell chiefs and directions. Now let us our daily deals on the leaves with concentrated color. Apply loose drugs as outlined for the use painted. Lose on random. Do not restrict yourself toe. You create toe ST on strict planes, - right , so next level are details on the flowers at loose strokes off line in circular motion on every level. News of spaces in between. They're not pain. Continuous motion just need some space is This will add depth to our flowers. Finally, we will are some final touches like these water levels, leaves and pillows toe make are paid in complete. Like we're done with this painting. I hope you enjoyed watching this class. 7. Final Thoughts: Thanks for watching my class. I really want to know is disregarded. Help you pain Floridians or leads?
