About This Class

Welcome to my first ever Watercolor class! I was nervous yet also excited to finally share with you something that I also love along side Calligraphy - Watercolor Painting. Let's paint Floral Watercolor Wreath with Roses in Botanical Style. 

If you’re a beginner in watercolor, this class will explore about the fundamentals like controlling water on the paint brush, understanding color values, and different watercolor techniques that will surely equip you on how to paint the elements of our wreath.

If you have experience with watercolor florals already, this class will bring you a new discovery on how to paint a rose because we’ll be sketching the flower first and apply some watercolor procedures to paint our rose in a semi-realistic form instead of loose.

What I am most excited about for you to accomplish is the projects that we will create at the end of this class. We’re gonna paint elegant looking geometric shaped wreaths. I fell in love with this wreath design rather than the usual circle wreath since I have a background in Engineering. Now that I am a full time artist, it’s always good to look back on where I started that leads me to geometric designed wreaths! From a minimalist diamond wreath to a more sophisticated hexagon wreath, they are perfect to design your calligraphy, a wedding invitation or a home decoration.


This is a very special class to me because it’s one of the firsts in my creative journey. I was nervous to publish this class but I decided to start before I became ready. :)

Aspire to do even greater. Create your own world of colorful journey.

Seven Brush Strokes Maricar Ramos

Calligraphy & Watercolor Artist



Hello brush friends! I’m Maricar Ramos, the person behind Seven Brush Strokes. I do and teach Modern Calligraphy. But you know what’s my favorite? It’s to help you discover and cultivate the UNIQUE ARTIST within YOU!

I discovered my love for lettering way back on October 2017 when I felt so stressed about my job and wanted to do something new. I saw a friend from a social media posting her works of Calligraphy and I instantly became interested to try it for myself. But like every beginners, it was also frustrating to me at first: keeping my upstrokes thin and my downstrokes consistent.

"Practice makes progress." This became my mantra as I improve myself on lettering. I learned to just enjo... See full profile

1. Introduction: There is no shortcut to greatness. Even the mightiest champions did undergo cheap deletions before achieving success. Likewise, for every beautiful piece of watercolor art, there is an artist who persevered, differentiate, and make one soul come a few years ago when I started learning calligraphy, watercolor comes along with it. But then realizing how difficult it is for me, my decision to focus first on the art of beautiful writing. Dominated might be, well, a dream will remain on hold and less than action is built upon. Earlier this year, I decided to once again, they're in water color. And as expected, the process is hard, but the result is fruitful. America OR the artist behind seven brush strokes. You can thank me most of the time on Instagram. Yet a also loved sharing short tutorials on my YouTube channel. Welcome to my first ever what they call a class. If you are a beginner in watercolor. This class we'll explore how to control the water on your big brush. Understanding the color values, which is the lightness and darkness of the color. And we'll also learn different blotter color techniques that will truly equip you on how to pick the elements of our read. If you have experience with watercolor Flores already, this class will bring you a new discovery as to how to paint a rows, will be sketching the flower first and apply some watercolor procedures to think our rows in a semi realistic or instead of loose. What I am most excited about for you to accomplish is the projects that we will be eight at the end of this class. We're going to be elegant looking geometric shape feeds from a minimalist DYAMAND width to a more sophisticated hexagon we've, these are perfect to the same URI calligraphy, a wedding invitation, or a home decoration. This is a very special class to me because it's one of the first in microwave joining. I was nervous to publish this class, but I decided to start before I became ready. Aspire to do even greater. Create your own world of colorful journey. 2. Art Supplies: What are the things that we need to prepare for this class? Of course, a watercolour paper. If we want to achieve better results in watercolor, the quality of the paper will help. I started with this brand. This is the February and the water color paper, 200 GSM conquest, and twenty-five percent cotton. Until now, this may go to paper for your practice if you want to invest with artists greed, watercolor paper, RHS, and Bao Han are good options to. For this class, I'll be using Fabriano because its thickness is already enough for the techniques that we'll use to B, we also need water color paints. I'll be using art philosophy water colored when infections. And this sets are the Odyssey and decadent pi's, which are artists greed pings. Not worry if you don't have the same palette that I have, you can use any water color paints that's available to you. For mixing colors. You can use a ceramic palette. I have here with six wells. But again, feel free to use whatever that you have at home. Some watercolor paintings come with a mixing palette already, like this from art philosophy. Depending on my mood, sometimes a go with straight in here to do the mixing. And I also prefer mixing wells with large spaces. For paintbrushes. I'd love to use my Princeton heritage round brushes. This are sizes 58 and the tip is fine enough to create thinnest strokes for a small details, I suggest that you get at least through round brushes because later on this class, we'll use them side-by-side for painting the flowers. I also prepared a tissue paper to dab the excess water or a tickling the color on my paintbrush. Of course, we need clean water. I often use to jars of clean water. One for a warm colors like red, orange, yellow, and the other is for the cold colors such as blue, green, and violent. I do this, that as a paint. The colours won't be muddy as they put them into the paper. And don't forget to get a pencil and eraser. We'll use them for our sketches of the mean flowers for the reef that will create this class, a ruler to draw our reach shape and the compass, but this is optional. We can create irregular polygon later when inking the shape of my Reef, I love using Go pen because I just feel like the geometric shape really pops up with gold. Or you can use any pen or a color, the 21, it doesn't matter. Okay. So these are just some of the materials that I'm currently using when I was starting out, I also use students read watercolor supplies. The cheapest that I can get, because they still don't want to invest on expensive ones. As my skills improved, I eventually became interested to upgrade my materials. I encourage you don't let the art materials be a reason for you not. The try watery color. High-quality art materials can make a difference to the result of European things. Yet, it's the skill that really matters. Now, gather your supplies and let's get started. 3. How to Hold Paint Brush: There are different ways you can hold the paintbrush and each will give your painting a different effect. If you want to create, find the payers. You want to hold your brush like how you would be the pencil or a pen. You can grip it close to the results or at the Pharaoh. For example, this is my pencil. The way that they normally hold it is like this. And you want to do the same with paintbrush. If you're aiming for a more controlled is choke. It doesn't matter if you want the degree of black. These are your comfortable be swayed. You can do that. And you can practice this script Baker eight being thinnest strokes or a lane on your paper. For a loser is style of painting. You can grep towards the middle or bottom of the handle away from the bristles. Imagine like you're conducting an orchestra with the Bateson. This allows us to create free and book is chokes practice this week basis making some strokes like this net necessary to form a certainly stroke. I just want you to fill this kind of group. So I'm just randomly painting brush strokes here and just imagining that I'm a pro in watercolor. So just take some time to play around with your paintbrush. 4. Controlling Water on the Brush: As a beginner in water color, it's often a big question as to how to control the water on the paintbrush. These on my personal experience, different brushes hold different amounts of water. There are big brushes which are really thirsty while some dries out fast after a few strokes. Using these sites, eight, Princeton heritage round brush, al dip it into the water and as you can see, the water is dripping off the brush. And this indicates that we have too much water on our brush. You can tap the exit swatter or pull your brush over the edges of your water container to release more water. Now, your brush is ready to dip into the watercolor p. Let's try grabbing some color. I'm gonna use the Tokyo from the Odyssey set and mix them. Paint here. I'll dip my brush again onto the water and they regularly grab some paint with that, tapping the excess water, and then put it into the paper. As you can see, we have created a puddle of water here. Helping too much water will make it difficult for us to control our paint, as well as the brushes chokes that will create. Let's repeat the process but this same, top the excess water by pulling the brush to the edges of the jar. And let's grab some paint. As you can see, there is the right amount of water that we want as we go along pin-pin. No pool of water in here as compared to the first one. As you can notice, the water is still flowing here. While on this area that paint is evenly spread out and there is no puddle of being. The last example shows what it looks like when painting with a dry brush, the paint is not flowing. So this can be helpful when you're just adding details to European thing. 5. Understanding Color Values: This lesson will be all about understanding color values. And it essentially means the lightness and darkness of color. You see again, may size eight round brush. You can use at every size of brush and whatever color for this exercise. And gonna make different mixtures here is starting with the very saturated bed and very pigment color. As you can see, the mixture is thick and this is because there is more pigment than water and that produces darker value of color. Let's watch this and that's how the paint looks like. Wenches activate bed with water. For a lighter paint value, you can add a few drops of water, this mixture swirling around. And the swatch is quite later compared to this. As we add more water to hear, the mixture becomes theme, and it's also what they mean. And now we have a lighter pink. So this is what they do to lighten up. My color is I don't usually use white pigment to lighten up the values of my colors. I just add more water. To summarize, the darkest value means more pigment than water. And the lightest value means more water than pigment. You can create different values depending on how much water or paint you use. This is a fun activity to do when you got a new lover quarter beam. And you want to explore their color values because some brands don't come as vibrant as the other. And remember that water color fades as it dry ice. So the color that sometimes loop just right when it's silhouette can be paler when it's already dry. Now let's check if we can add more water here to mix the lightest shade of this color we can produce. So there 6. Watercolor Techniques: Before we actually paint a flower, it's important first to learn some basic watercolor techniques that will be useful for this class. If you want a controlled and clearly defined brushes, strokes with hard edges, you can peek on a dry paper, load your brush with water color and evenly spread it to the paper. Remember, as long as the paint is still wet, you can still see the shape of whatever you're being dean. This technique is done when the watercolor is brushed onto wet paper, resulting in soft watercolor washes. It. Start by whetting your brush with clean water and create a shape like a square. In this example. Here is a closer look so you can see where I've applied the water. Remember to evenly spread the water on the shape you've created. Now, I'm going to pick up a moisten paint on my palette and just drop it to the desired area. You will see that the peak is flows in the shape where the paper is wet. Remember, the pigment always follow the water. So the color will travel outside the square shape we have in here. Because the water created a border on the paper and grab a yellow color here and drop some orange like that. Keep in mind that my paint brush is not so wet when I applied the color orange. Next we have the dump brush technique. I usually have two brushes for this. One is for applying the paint and the other one is for blending with water. For example, we have a dried painted area over here and we want to add another layer. I use the size five, the pickup, some color, apply it to the area where it's needed and using the other brush that is damped. So it's not loaded with color. Just to author and not too wet. I'm going to soften the edges of this union applied paint to blend into the background. If you think that your paint brush is too wet, you can debit into the tissue paper and then blend. Again. This is what you can do to add another layer to an already dried beans. The next technique is lifting out water color paints from the paper. A Buddhist, when they feel like I've placed more pigment on a certain area, then you actually want it to be, for example, a still have these painted shape that is still wet and a 1-2 light then this part, what I am going to do is to wash the same brush, remove the excess water so that it becomes damped and list out some color like so. You can also use through brushes for this technique. So there's my size five to apply the pink. Then my size that is dumped will be used to lift out the pink. You'll see that we have achieved some kind of flag, a gradient effect in here. As we leave out the ping. This will be useful when repainting petals later on this class. Repeat this simple exercises as many times as you feel necessary. It's a great way to be more familiar with their watercolors, place. 7. Drawing a Rose: Now it's time to learn about creating the main flour for our read. The rows. We're gonna meet a lady sketch first because we want our row says to be slightly in botanically style instead of lose. But don't worry, because we'll be painting the other elements on this reef in looses style, ages like how drawing first the flower gives me a sense of direction as to how the rows will turn out. Also, it's not necessary to perfect your drawing. We still want this to be freestyle and relaxed. This is my reference photo for my job when I got this from an Splash.com. And I'm not going to draw this flower exactly the scene. We wanted this focus on the general shape of the flower and the petals. When drawing a rules, I like to start from the center. Keep in mind that we're not going to make a really big kind of rose because it's still be placed on the reef. And this process will take time to finish, so will simply make it as small. The first thing that I do is start with an oval sheep. It's not necessary to be a perfect oval shape. You can add some curves to eat like a bean shape and then draw two lines like this. It's going to be the main center of the rooms. Next, we know that the roses are formed in like see shapes. If we take a look at this photo, the petals are like see shapes overlapping each other. I won't draw each battles like how I exactly see it from this picture. I want the simplify my Jobin. I'll add a petal and the right side, and then another one on the left side. Again, it's not necessary to make the petals completely identical. You want to vary their shapes and sizes because those flowers, they are naturally imperfectly Beautiful. Okay, now let's add another layer of petal this time at the bottom. Those stress yourself too much. If you feel like something is upward, you can go ahead and erase and add another one up here. Make sure that the edges of your petals are not the smooth. So they will look more natural. And as we move away from the centre, will, may be grew back hours. And another one here, and then another one here. Alright, so this part that we just drew is like the mid part of the rules. Now I want to jump already to the outer part, which are these open pepper house. If you want, you can still go around and fill this with petals depending on how big you want the rows to be. But for me this is already good. I'll go ahead and add open petals. So these are bigger petals located at the outer part of the rooms. Make them appear like they are overlapping. So this is my rows. You can trace this drawing for practice. It's uploaded on the gallery section of this class. But just keep in mind that because we're doing free hand drawing in here, every rows will turn out the front. Unless you want to trace this for every row says on nervy. But I encourage you to try drawing this on your own by following the steps that a mean so that you'll be more familiar with the shape of the ropes. 8. Painting the Rose: All right, it's time to actually do the painting. I have here a smallest scrap of watercolor paper to show you that techniques that will apply to paint the flower. I will first draw an outer petals because that's how I normally start being the May flowers. So I will draw this petal first. And usually the darkest parts of the flowers are the ones that are tucked underneath, while the tips of the petals will be lighter. So we want to use to round brushes. I'm still using my Princeton heritage says 58. And we'll use the wet on wet and dump brush techniques here. One branch will be to apply paint and the other one is for blending. Prepare a mixture that is very they looted or whatever we, and this will be the base color of our flower. Then prepare another mixture that is more pigment bed. Okay? So using the size eight brush, I'm gonna wet the whole area of these PayPal. If you think there's too much water, just soak it with their brush and that if under tissue paper. Ok, so as you can see, there's just enough shine on my paper. Now using this iss five, I load it with the pigment admixture and drop it here on the side where the PayPal is tucked underneath. And then I'll switch to my size eight again. So this is just a brush, it's not too wet. And then just blend the colors in. You can choose to spread the color of the way to the top, but not too much. We don't want this area to be super dark so that we can create an illusion that this part at the bottom is hidden underneath another petal while its edge has a highlight. The next part that we went the practice is the middle layer. Let's take this PayPal for example. It's facing upwards. So the shadow will be on this part, since it's like top underneath. And this will be a lighter color and since it's the edge of the town, same process using my size, I let this area with the other brush with the pigment that makes tour and add it to the area will be in shadow. And then blend them in with your brush. And the last part that will practice is the inner petals. Let's take this for example. So the shadow is on this side, and this is the edge of the petals. So it's going to be lighter. If you see like you've banded them too much. Just jump again. Another pigment admixture and the area we'd shadow. So we'll repeat this process in each of the petals of the robes. And mixing the color Tokyo on my palette that you can choose any color that you like for your roofs. When painting petals, I'd like to do them one by one. I start with open petals first and then work my way towards the center of the rows. Remember that in between each petal, like on the inner part of the petal, it's going to be darker and then it will become lighter as we move towards the edge of the paper. Usually I likely erase the pencil marks of made Jobin. But for the sake of this lesson, I didn't erase them. So you can see where I'm going. After I finish the speckle. I'm not going to continue with this side or this side because this is still wet. I don't want them to have bleeding or blend with each other. I want each metals to be individual and maintain that light and dark values. So I can paint here or here, but not under Pathos next to it. You can also choose to paint the inner area. But I'll go ahead here first. We'll repeat the same process and there is no more Python that needs painting. As I discovered this a style of painting, I also developed my patients before I'd be very impatient. The finished project, which resulted in law of details or sometimes unnecessary bleeding of colors happens because I was too excited to add another layer. But now I learned how to paint with patients. I realize that beautiful things don't just happen instantly. A lot of paintings we see, especially in the museum, but have taken long. Ours are these before it was created. And I can say that I enjoy watercolor mark today because I can now appreciate the way this medium behaves. And you can also do that with God sent practice. But if you are still working on your patients, you can always use a heating tool or maybe a hairdryer to speed up the drying process of European team? Yeah. Okay. Okay. So this has already good and it's up to you if you want to add more details like thin lens, I'm using my sides fame here to add details because it's smaller brush can be easier to control. Just load the tip of your brush with color and then we'll create thinnest strokes. This will indicate where the petal is facing or opening, but don't overdo this step. Just add few lanes to the areas where you think it's needed. Sometimes I also like adding details at the tip of the outer petals, but they put that randomly so it would still appear natural. And there you have it. You have been then a simple botanical rose. Good job. On the next lesson. We'll be painting leaves and filler flowers. Don't worry, there's no more is sketching required? Let's go. 9. Drills: A flower won't look complete without a leaf. In this lesson, we'll learn that trials that we can practice the pink leaves, load your brush with the color of your choice. Preferably green because we're making leaves. And since I am painting in a looser style, I'll be holding my brush, at least from the middle, away from the results. Make sure that the belly of your brush is loaded with enough big. Mmm. Let's practice some drills first. To create the list. Simply start with the PIP and use the valley of the garage to pull the color across the paper, giving it some nice curve instead of just a straight line. And you can also fix the color if you want. So start with a tip, drag the belly, make some curve, and gradually back to the team. You can also start from the top. So that's thin. Drag the belly, make a little curve and back. The theme. This drills will help you to be familiar raised with how the leaves are actually created. Because some leaves are like falling from this spam and they are not really going in one direction only. So just practice this drills over and over again until you're already comfortable thinking this is strokes. 10. Painting Leaves: Okay, now we're actually painting leaves. Let's start with big lives. I'm mixing is skyline with the little bit of Blackberry from the decadent pi step. You start with thin, drag the belly and go back. And then we'll do another one on the opposite side. For me, this kind of keystrokes are OK because if we look at nature, some leaves are not perfect, right? I also put white space in between the strokes to create an illusion that it's the center of the leaf. And sometimes while the leaf is still wet, i'm going to put some darker value on one area to add that to my limbs. I do this most especially for larger leaves. And if you're not yet happy with the shape of your leaves, use the tip of the paintbrush, the fakes its shape. And just love applying wet on wet technique to add depth to my painting. One last try. Let's say you don't want to put whitespace at the center. So you can just feel the whole shape with color and fix the shape if you want them to be perfect. For a smaller leaves, we start with a very thin stroke that serves as a spam, and then add random leaves on both sides. I usually start adding leaves at the top and they don't have to be parallel with each other. They can add leaves that look like falling away from the stem. So we want the leaves to look natural. And then I deposit some pins at the bottom of each leaves where they attached with the stem. You can also start with the leaves first before adding your stem. Like what I'm doing here. This is the truest stroke leaf that we did earlier that is smaller in size. Next, I will show you a triangular shape leaf. I add this usually on my row says, hey, like they are behind the flower. I start with a shape like this and fill it with color, like so. While waiting for any leaves to dry, let's go ahead and mix some filler flowers. And the next video. 11. Filler Flowers & Adding Details: The paint berries just place a small dots on the paper randomly. Some are very big method, while other dots are very light. Then we'll attach each of the berries through a very thin is true. So you can wait for the babies to dry first before adding this stem, or you can let them bleed with the greens. Next, we have the flower. The stroke is the same lake how we these earlier with the leaves. But we want them to be illegal pointed toward one end. You can also start with this shape. Then add another is stroke on one side. Like so. Make sure that there's a white space in between them. Now, these are already dry, so we can now add the pails, the width for leaves where there is whitespace at the middle. I don't add details anymore, but for this kind of leaf shape, I start with a very thin line at the center of the leaves. And for the veins, I make this curvy upward length. So take note that it is curvy and not just a straight line. Another way to add detail theory leaves is by simply adding thin or a broken line at the middle. And remember that it's not necessary to put details to every leaves. You can have them randomly. Lastly, we add sap out to our flower buttons. So AD Spain, thinnest strokes like this, one at the middle, then both on the opposite sides of the band. And there you have it. We can now move on to our class project. 12. Geometric Diamond Wreath: It's time to put them altogether in a real, initially, you want to decide on the main shape of year v. For this first class project will make a diamond shape with weed minimalist design. Depending on the size of your wreath that you want. Just draw a diamond on your paper. May be precise here is nine by six by the way, so it's gonna be smaller. Next step is to sketch the rows. In my case, I will be placing my rows at the lower left corner of my Dyamand. Don't forget to light the erase the pencil marks, especially the lanes in say, the flower from your diamond Jobin. Prepare your mixtures. Remember, one that is very, they looted for the base of your flour and one that is augmented to add shadow the earth flour. I'm still using that Tokyo color from the Odyssey set. When you're already satisfied with your rows. Add now that the payers, This will be a wispy strokes and usually added to create more depth to the flower. Next step is to add leaves. It's up to you if you want the color of your leaves to be traditional greens. But for this project, I'm gonna mix Peach caught blur from the decade that bicep with a little bit of Tokyo to create harmony with my colors. I'm going to start with my triangular kind of leaves and just follow the curve of the petals of a rose to make them look, appeared like they are underneath these flower. And you can always fix the shape of your leaves using that they've welfare brush. Following the shape of my read, which is Dyamand in this project, I'll go ahead and add a smaller leaves with a stem. As you practice, you'll be comfortable adding leaves to fill in the space S. While waiting for this to dry, I'm gonna mix the color of my stem, which will be a combination of Apple from the decadent pies and this mixture that I used for my leaves. So that's one way to maintain harmony to the overall look of your view. You'll want to add the colors that you've already used on your palate when preparing a new mixture. Right now, I'm just adding berries and morally leaves. You don't want to overdo adding fillers thier, we'll take a look first at the overall composition and see if there are steel is spaces that you want to fill in. Once everything is dry, you can now add the details. Remember the AD curve, the very lanes as you put these details to make them look more natural. I'll be using my gold band could trace the shape of my read. But as I said earlier, if you don't have gold, you can use any pen that you have. Okay, this is already in a diamond wheel that I think I still need to add gold ink right here. And this area to be careful not to write on your paintings in this step, just add lines to the open spaces. And to see niche, this geometric NIS saying, what they do is to add random lines intersecting that Dyamand, so it will form a new shape. This new shape can be another DYAMAND or any irregular polygon that you can think of. You can do this and pencil first to plan out where you'll put the new shape. All right, so that is very minimalist design, geometric reef. 13. Drawing a Hexagon: In this video, I will share how to easily draw a hexagon. Locate the center of your paper, and decide how big you want the hexagon 2B. And then draw a circle using IIT campus. Using the same opening of the compass he used to draw the circle, please the pin on 1 of the circle and put a mark where it depends on ys. Now please the pin to the pencil mark that you just created and repeat the process six times. This will equally divided the circle into six triangular sheeps. Next, connect the pencil marks. And now you have a hexagon shape when creating a geometric reads with the same sheep. In this case we have a hexagon. I'll just draw another hexagon that will overlap the first one. Same process as we did earlier. Now, the orientation of these shapes depends on your preference. You can play around with that too, and then erase the circle drawing and other unnecessary pencil marks. You now have geometric hexagon shape. 14. Geometric Hexagon Wreath: Now we'll be creating another class project, which is a hexagon weed. If you don't have any compass, you can just who eat an irregular hexagon shape where he decides are not equal. I encourage you to play around with different shapes and you just make me surprise on the geometric read that he can create. First, let's plan our read. Select which side of the polygon you want to place. Your row says, I'm gonna put two arrows, says this time, one on the upper left and another on the lower right. And just erase some parts of the hexagon here where I will draw their process. And next, I will prepare my mixtures.
