Art Supplies: So for the art supplies, we're not gonna be needing much. We're just gonna be needing watercolor paper. I always use the cancer brand, and we're also going to use water colors. Obviously, I always have. I like using a pen sets, but you can use the ones you have brushes and a pencil, a ruler, a marker and a racist. 3. Basic Elements 1: Hi. In this first video, I want to cheat you the basic elements flowers I always use. First, we're going to start with that thing at the beginning with a lot of color. And then what you have in your brush, We're just gonna make this strokes all around it. And it's the same for these next one. We're just gonna take the color and go around with the brush strokes for these next flower. We're just going to start with a yellow dot and then I am using ah, orange color to make this pedals, and they are really easy to make. And it's just difficult sometimes to make them look symmetrical. But I guess with practice you can do it and you can also turn the h your paper around. I want to paint it better. And I am doing another one that is on the tenure and blue, and you can do any car you want. They look beautiful and for this one and using the this the brush strokes and it's just really to make this ones, and they are really pretty when you make flower arrangements. When our first flowers are dry, we're going to go back again and use more color than water to give them more to make them look more realistic. And they look giving clear. And then for these flowers were just going to make this water color stains. And once they drive, we're going to being on them. Once dry, I took my I think it's 00 brush and then I just started making the flowers for this one. It's like just start with the point And then with half circles, you go all around and they're really easy to make. You just follow. The instructions are just just just seeing the video, you get an idea of how I make them for these next flower. I am doing the same. Just starting with with that point in the middle and then just go all around the with the pedals, and it's the same of the 1st 1 It's just the shape of the pedal. It's more triangular. I don't know how to say it, but it looks slightly different. And then to give it more deft or volume, I'm just going in the corners and adding more color and water to make them look more realistic and for these other one. I am doing a different kind of flower and I'm living space in the middle like that. And first I start with with Vertical. And then I start with Horace Santo. And then once I have that those pedals I am doing the other one So in looks more organized . Now I am just doing this lines inside the pedal so it looks more like a flower. Then I am going in and add more color to the to the center to make it look more volume and between the other pedals are among other pedals, so it looks really pretty that way. So with the green, I just started the final touches and well, that was it for these video outside in the next one, where I teach you some other fellers. 4. Basic Elements 2: So in this second part, I am going to show you how Teoh pain more detailed flowers. First, I am using my pencil Thio Thio, make the flowers. So now that I know what they will look like, I am going Teoh, erase them. But I'm going to leave the lines that I can still see them. And then I'm going. Teoh, take a pink and I am just painting some pedals off the first flower and then I'm going to paint the other pedals red. But once the pink is right and for the second flower, I am going to paint it orange. And for the third flower, I am painting the pedals, some pedals darker than other ones, and it will look a really nice effect. And once a pink was right in this flower, I took my red watercolor and painted the other pedals that were missing. And for the second flower I used, like orange and for the corners. At the end, I used to more color, so to make these flower even more details, I took in my really seem brush and started my team. This lines inside the pedals with a darker shade of pink that I use, and I think it looks really cool because it looks really detailed. But you need to have a lot of practice with this kind of brushes and have a lot of precision. And well, for thes second flower, I am doing basically the same, but with the orange and I am not doing the complete lines. I am just like living at the mail like this, and it looks really cool because it looks really detailed. And I love how it so now these flowers I'm going to show you here are easier than than the ones off the top there, like for when you don't know how to feel some space in your painting. There, there really useful for that And they look really treating well, as you can see there, really you see to make and they look really cool. So for the leaves, I when it comes to leaves, I always like using a lot of kinds of greens. I liked experimenting with that a lot, and this is the basic shape I always use for the traditional leaves. And, yes, that's have told you before. I always like to use different kinds of colors. And sometimes I leave. I leave a space without Basie inside the leaf. As you can see here, sometimes I don't feel like four. And it looks really cool like that. You can make them bigger or smaller, and these are some ideas that I always used in my paintings. But do you think create more? You show And yes, that's it. These are the leaves I always use. You can create more. If you like it, find more on the Internet. And if you try anything, please show me. And in the project section anything you've tried, I would love to see it. 5. Flower Crown: now in this video, I'm going to show you how to paint a flower crown. First I'm going to start with the circle and I'm using my pencil. And once I have the circle, I will use I raised the lines, but it, but make sure that I still can see them to pain on them. And then I am going to paint these flower that I always paint as you can see, and that I am painting them separately. I am not doing this continuously because you have to wait for them to dry. And so that's why I'm doing this in parts. And I am adding some other flowers that I already showed you the other videos and it's very sick. You just have to follow the line. And once you have all the flowers, you start adding the leads and that's it. Oh, - on with my pencil. I am going Teoh to trace the letter. Eight. You can use any letter you want, but I wanted to to make this one. You can do a phrase or something, but really like it this way. So what do you think 6. Flower Arrangement: for the flower arrangements. I'm going to start with a sketch of Amazing Yard and then I am going to paint it blue. Then I am going to paying the first flowers I show you in the first video. And then I'm doing it in different sizes and in different collars like this. And once I'm done with those flowers, I am doing other flowers that I showed you to in the first video. All the flowers were going to use here in this flower arrangement I already showed you and they're releasing in my I am painting the leaves and in this case, I'm doing this one's and then I'm just feeling the the yellow parts of flowers and just doing details that are missing. Then I'm going to be painting the flower stock. I think it is cold and just dragging it down because it has to be, you know, under no inside the Mason jar and just doing that and all the green parts and adding the leaves in different kinds of greens. And you can painted however you like. And then I'm just going Teoh at the glitter to the flowers and this is how it would look. I hope you like it. And I hope you tried 7. Flowers in Letters: Now, this project that we're going to make is gonna be really fun because you're going to be painting flowers inside a letter. So first I'm using a ruler in I am making on a because that's my name on camera. So I'm using a May again and I'm going to raise lines and but, you know, make them still visible. You can still see them, and then I am doing these water color stains to paint flowers on them. So I am using beings red, yellow in orange and the ones they dry. You're going to paying the flower on this thing, so you're going to use a darker color that are really intense. Orangina real intense pink so you can see the flower, obviously, So you're kind of really think about what kind of flower fits this thing better. So that's basically what I'm doing in every color stain. - And then when you finish the whole thing with flowers, we're going to start adding leaves in the blank spaces that we left and just to make it look better, and that's it. I hope to let this card it as much as I did. And if you try it, please show me pictures in the project section. Thank you
