1. 1. Intro: Welcome to my class. About this time we will be painting peony flowers. We will be painting it in three ways. Actually, it's two ways, but one will be with different backgrounds. So first beyond it will be natural style looking just like this. This is on, this one is on a white background, but we will be painting another one on dark mode. And third mode on the galaxy style background. It also looks very pretty so. I think you should try to also pay another beyond the human, these galaxy style background. And the third peony will be in very loose style. So now I'm going to show you what we will be using. Of course, we need our watercolor paper. I usually use gamma water color. And this, this one is a four size and it's three grams, 300 grams per meter. Width, ten sheets. So and it's just like I said before, it's A4 size, so it's quite large. Next, what we need are what their color things. I'm going to use this Romana small paints. This is a small palette, but I like the colors a lot. Just like you see, I use them. It's a quite new palette, but I use it a lot. Here you can see all the coral colors which are on this palette. We are not going to use much colors. We will rather be mixing more tones from the ones we have. And the second which I will be using is White Nights pallets. Of course, we also need watercolor brushes. We will be using, well, I will be using a number 8, Winsor and Newton watercolor brush. Number 6 and number three for details. But if you have something smaller than three, it's also fine. It will be perfect for details. Also, we will be using at the beginning, especially for the first project. Calcium and a rubber. I also prepared you pee on the sketch. For those of you who can't draw and still want to paint with me. I make the sketches by myself from photos which I find on stock pages are which I do by myself. So you can totally free use it. You can find them below the class description in the class description also, we will be using tracing paper to trace this outline to the watercolor paper. And I will be using also a little bit of washi tape. And also we need some paper towel. We also need some paper towel. So I think that's all we need. And also, you know, just like usual, while painting with watercolors, colors, we need some water. So if we have everything gathered together, we can start painting. 2. 2. Peony Outline: So first things first, we need to transfer our outline to them, watercolor paper. To do that, we simply use a tracing paper. You need to place it the darker side. Watercolor paper. Place in your outline. The watercolor paper and stick it with the washi tape. If you do that. Outlined won't move to read during the outlining process. So it will be easier for you because you won't have this distractions on your, on your sketch. So without further talking. So without much talking, I will start to trace. You can also trace with me if you like, outline, just like I said before on the previous video, you will find, I will attach it in the class description. So just check out there and you will find this outline. So let's start filling. This is my cat, one of my two cats. They usually sit next to me while I'm working on my computer. And actually, this is the place where they usually sit. The place where I'm drawing, I'm drawing right now. So I think they are curious what I'm doing under place. You can take your time offline UK. You will have to do it quick. Let's check. I want to see if I have everything. I forgot about this leaf. If you have your outline staked with the washi tape, you can simply and carefully check if you have everything, if you didn't forget. And then petal. The petal. It's easier when you have it. Stick to your watercolor paper. Let's see if I have read every petal. I think I got every petal, petal I need from the peony flower. Next, let's move to the leaves. Okay, so let's see. I think I have everything covered so I will remove my outline. So I guess we have our sketch ready for the next step. 3. 3. Peony first wash: So first, we will be painting this stance inside the flower. I will be using the ClO, I think it's some it was cadmium yellow boat from White Nights. I think so. I don't remember exactly what was its name, the scholar, but I think the cadmium yellow will be okay for this, for this thing, even if it will lie, it will be a lighter shape. It's still okay. So so slide the painting, the first layer of yellow on this stems. Simply with the top of my brush. I'm using a number 6 brush make now. It doesn't matter if it bleeds between each of the strobe. It doesn't really matter. Really. You can leave some white spaces because it's it doesn't matter because it's only the first year Yeah. Layer. We will be painting another one later on this on top of it. So it doesn't matter if it bleeds you in a one shapes. So don't stress. Keep calm. And paint and everything will be okay. So it was the first year, year, the first layer on stamps. Now we will be mixing very light shade of pink for our petals. I have this really beautiful color from White Nights. White Knight has these pastor, which have a very beautiful colors. This peach and this violet. Violet are from White Nights. If you have Prima, show you, if you have a prima, paints, will teach pastels, this color will be similar, so you can choose like this. There's Apple Blossom color. It will be also defined for this. But still, if you don't have this shade, which is very light, and we'll mix it with water on my palette, which is very, very light, light shape. I'm going to show you one more color. I usually also use a choline 390. It's also beautiful for this step. But this time I will be using quiet nights in this color. Looks this way. It's beautiful. I'm going to add more, more water to this because I wanted this color to be more transparent. If you don't have this color, you can still achieve something similar by mixing a lot of water on your palate and a little bit of magenta. You don't have to use the same color as me. You can use similar pianist, our own in different shades of pink. The light pink, dark pink, medium pink. So, but every transparent shade you achieve, I suppose, will be perfect for this step. So I'm using this color and it's better to mix it more than less, because we have a lot of battles to paint. So I will be using this color, paint the petals, and now we'll be painting petal by petal. So each petal separately on my flower is, as you can see, this color is a bit still, a bit dark. So I'm mixing of water on my brush. And without doing anything with my brush and painting with this water on my brush and moving the paint around the petal to make it even lighter. And this is the first layer. So we can obtain this way, the whole leaf at once. But still we need to paint petal by petal. And it's better to paint the petals. Each are not connected with each other, which don't stick. If the color is a little bit darker, It's also doesn't. Why her really matter because you can still make it darker more. While we paint. Because your p.band on it could be in this darker shades. At the beginning. I'm trying not to paint around my stance because they are still wet. I think they will bleed. And that's why I'm thinking I started. And from this figure is around the flower. Looks so pale, but it's okay. I just thought that if you stick on just to warm layer, you can also you can show me the first layer which you can issue. Don't know what to do next. You can still place first or second layer of your painting in the project sections for me to see. Sometimes you just need the courage to burn. Sometimes everything is okay, but only we think that this became think it's nice, okay. Also removed. Or if it's easier for you, you can take a bigger brush for this string, almost out of the color. So the last battle, I will paint almost with no with no color, only with the collar which left in your brush. So we have everything painted, each petal of the flower. As you can see, they are still wet. And to follow to the next step, we need to wait told this layer is dry. So see you in a moment in the next, in the next step. 4. 4. Peony Second Wash: Okay, right low, we will be painting a second layer of color on PMI. To do that, we need a dark, darker shade of pink. Then we have before. So I start mixing my colors. So I put a lot of water on my mixing palette at the same light. And that light violet color is light lavender to my palette. And to make it darker, I will add some more magenta. And after each step, each adding the color, I check its value on the second piece of piece of paper. So as you can see, this shade is some just like 0, 1, one step darker value than before. And I will start painting like that. Those, again. I will be painting petal by petal. I will start from the inside of the petal to the outside. Let's do this, step together. So first I will lay some color from my palate onto the edge of the petal. And while this is still wet, I will my brush into the water. And with the water on my brush, I will paint. I want the transition of the color to be very, very light and very soft tone. That's why I'm using only water at this stage. So we have first petal. Now, I'm drying my brush on the paper to our top paper now. And again. Peaking some paint on my brush, choosing another petal. For example, it could be this one. This will be all dark because it's inside of the flower so it warm type anything light on it. The same. This is saying, this one became my next. I'm picking my next. But also, for example, it could be this one. Sink. Okay. On the edge, on the inside edge of the petal became some water on my brush. And only with the water I'm painting the rest of the petal. I need the transition of color from the metal to be very subtle. And now we're moving to the next. For example, how will move around my piece? So for example, it could be the spit on thing. Think I'm painting from the inside, beaking some water on my brush. And painting only with the watcher. Painting only with the world. If you see that the volume is too dark, simply clean your brush, dry it until the paper towel. And try with the green flash. Remove the excess of the color from your brush, dry it on paper towel, and pick the color. You think it's too much independent. So the same stage step will apply for the rest of the petals. Sectoral value change. If you need, you can still switch to a smaller brush. Like in this one. I need smaller brush. Do scrum also be dark? And there's still one thing we didn't talk about, as you can see, wonder is this folder to leave darker on this side. And on this side it's more light. You have more light in this side because this side is closer to the source of light and this side is closer to them, like back of the leaf. That's why it's darker and this part is lighter. To do that. And our p.ball on him, I'm thinking of smaller brush and I'm painting a very thin layer of color on the edge, on the outside edge of this leaf. And again, with only with water. Time painting to create this very light and softer transition of color. And they don't make small colorful myself, to check. Square feet is good enough. Let's paint this one. And this one folded leaf. And still in here. Install the cleave. Well, you know, it doesn't have to be perfect. Beautiful just the way it turns out in their painting. It's all Balder. Relax, relaxation and the pleasure it gives you. So it doesn't matter if it's not perfect. You know, it's just a piece of paper. If you see that something goes wrong, simply, say another piece of paper and start all over again. Just take your time and enjoy the process. This amount will be dark because it's like hidden inside of its inside of the leaf. So it's supposed to be darker color right? In the Sloan. Smooth brush into its folded form. This folded in here, our a cylinder. Next. This a little smaller brush. I think this peony will be more subtle than this one. Because I used in this one the lighter colors. So it will be much softer version. Still a peony. You will have to stick with the same colors as I did. You can choose your own colors. The layers palette, It's important. Our layers, as you can see how painful this last, but those more messy ways, because just like I said before, it doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't need to be even perfect. I like it anymore and my c, Let's see why. Although it's more realistic Paeony, you can still painting, paint it in more messy way. As you can see, our P&L needs to get its shape. This is our second layer of color down. We know needs to put it to dry, because for the second layer of color, we need all the stinks to be dry. 5. 5. Peony third wash: Okay, So here we go with the first layer of color on the Paeony flower. This is my flower after the second layer of color and get dollars. Right now, we will be mixing, and now they're pink color. And this time, this color will be much darker. And we'll be painting all the shadow areas except this lines. This lines will add later. So let's start by mixing color. Let's add some water. That mixing palette. And right now, I will be using magenta without, without mixing with other colors. So it's just a magenta. And this color will be less transparent than the, than the previous ones. So this is how it will look like. Look like. Oh, I think it's enough. Is transparency is enough for the color. Once again, just like before, we will start painting, each flower separately, each petal separately. So once again, just like before, in the previous stage, we will be painting it spread out separately, starting from the center of the petal to the edges of the pattern. So let's start, for example. And he would just, just, just a, then there is slight rush. The Walter. And only with a water color, Henri Becquerel. If I feel that I have too much water on my brush, I just slightly touch it with a paper towel. So another but go so much water and only with the walker. So we'll paint some shadows. And I will pick a smaller brush for that. And only with the water will move this paint to make a very light, oh my cat came very light shade of color in here. So again, let's repeat that step. And another battle, for example, in here, we painted with with the color, with the pink color, the peak, some water from the jar. And only would the water move this paint. You can also switch to the smaller brush. This time I will be using a number tree brush. Here. This will be a dark, dark of the petal becomes it's in the shadow. I'm trying to paint the areas which are not that cheap with each other for color. Nut to move where I don't want them to move. So again, a shadow in here. And you can still do like this. For example, this one will be dark, all dark because it's inside of the flower. So I will paint whole petals, this to hope adults. This also will be dark because it's covered in shadow. Let's go. If I see that water on my flash is alert, decayed. Simply click it below water. And again, I want this and middle part to be a little brighter. So with a clean brush, clean and dry brush and trying to peak. So paint from earlier. As you can see, it's getting lighter. Okay. So this also will be dark because it's inside of the flower. I will get this shadow to be darker, so I'm painting on it once again. If you want something to be darker, you can still paint some more layers. I think it will be easier to pay them. When the layer is, the layer before is try. Okay, so I'm wonder though, the SWOT I want it to be dark because it's also like the inside of the flower. I listed here. I think I left it too because it was connected with them. Wet areas. Lao that the earliest next to it or dry. I can paint it. And I can paint over it. I wonder how it is going with your work. Well, you show it to me. If you do, please attach in the projects area, I would be happy to see them. See all of your work. Also this area to be a bit darker. So I'm painting another. If it's hard for you just don't give up, just paint. Right. Would be nonstop. I know that sometimes card and easy to follow somebody steps. But I'm sure your work will be wonderful. Just, just don't give up. We're almost finished because it's almost finished. Peony flower. We only what's left for us, our only leaves and the center of the, and the stems of the flower. So with, we almost finished, this is peace, this marvelous piece. I'm sure. Your work is also wonderful. If you go on to the stack. If you are in this step with me and see if it will fall how it looks like. Well, I just I guess august this one too. If you still think that it's too bright, flowers too bright, you can still paint another layer of color while this dries. But remember to keep balance between light and shadow areas. I guess Hume is the last stroke. Almost the last straw goes, I wanted this to be a little bit darker. Not much. Just a little. Hey, here. And still in the next step, while this dries, we will paint just these details. Details. So stay with me. And for now, we also will paint on the second player on stem, so we will use the same yellow as before. It was just convenient. Oh, was I remember. And I'm painting the second player on the stems. I'm not painting and I'm just painting on the some, some of them came. And we need to wait, to, wait till this layer is dry to make this part is detailed. But while this happens, we can still start to painting the leaves. So see you in the next step where we will be painting the leaves, mixing some green shades and painting the leaves. See you then. 6. 6. Leaves - first wash: Okay, So this time we will be painting leaves. And just like the Paeony flower, we will start with the first layer, first very light layer of color. I will be using sap green. So I will mix it with my, right. I'm using a lot of water and just a bit of the sap green color. Let's lay color. So it's a very bright shade of green. Where bright, very trustful rate. Then I'm starting to paint whole lives. The first year, the first layer in the whole lives. And with the sleeves, we will be using the same technique as the peony flower. So we will be painting that and dry. So we need to wait till this first layer dries before we move to the next step. But since the peony flower is dry now, we can add some details. And just after eight weeks. So I'm mixing my magenta pink color again. And this time less water or more paint. I want this color to be thick, even thicker than this. So it's very nice. And I will switch to a smaller brush. I've got number three brush that you can switch to the smaller one. And with that pink paint, I will paint some details on my P on E. Trying to paint just simple one stroke with the tip of my brush. This could be a curved or it could be just try, it. Just puts it easier for you. We'll also make some dots in here. Old Faithful, smaller. So I will think of that petal. Just a few. I like this loose style of painting so you can still with a wet brush, make some bleeds. These details, not on every every detail but just on the sum. Let's sweat. This way. It feels more organic. Okay? I have most details on this side, so I need something in here. I want to darken that part. So I'm painting this part to darken a little bit. And let's see, I think I will paint some more details here. Let's see how it looks like. Lies on the phone. It always looks better. Perhaps the last one. Some more details. Being here. I had too much paint on my brush. Okay. Moving to the paper towel. In some details. Both. Okay. The last thing, this conservative store and wanted to get more soft, harsh deal, take it a bit into clean water. Okay, So I think that's all for now. Don't paint the details on every petal because it will look a bit weird. I want this detail to be only on some parts of the flower, not an all. I will own darken this inside of a flower to make the stamps pop. I think if you have a gold, gold, gold paint, it also will be a nice touch. If you paint the stems with the gold because they will be shown. So our knee is almost finished. We have left only one or two layers on the leaves, and this will be finished with the first peony flower. 7. 7. Leaves - second wash: Okay, So right now we will be painting a second part on the leaves. Just like before, we will be using sap green color, but we'll mix some blue into it for darkening it up or make it more through twice. So let's take some sap green looks nice. It's more pigment and less water. And a little bit of blue. To darken it up. More blue. More blue to it. I want to achieve bluish green, just like just like fallow green shade and so blue shade of green. So I add more blue. Oh, that's nice. This color is so nice. Okay, So with this color and medium size brush, we'll start painting second layer of color on green, on green leaves. So to do that, we have to think which parts of the flat of the leaves are darker and why this ones are darker? Because they lay underneath the flower. So are hey, Linda Flowers Show that's why I'm painting them. Just like with the petals. I'm painting layer of color first. Then I clean my brush in the water. And only with the water, I move this paint around my leaves. Okay, so in here, E edges. And I want to live the center of the leaf. Lighter. So I'm switching to a smaller brush and clean it with water and move the pigment and the color around. With my smaller brush. I move my paint to make the edges darker and the center of the leaf lighter. And just like before, this edge will be also dark. Okay? Still, I forget to mention we need to make a second color of green. Green color. We also will be using sap green, but with the blue just like before, and a little bit of red or pink. I want this to be darker than the previous one. And a little bit of pink In this color will be muted because of the writer used. This color will look like this. So it's just like you see, it's darker than the previous year 1 because of the red. And when we have that color, we can still, while this paint is dry, place this darker color, color somewhere. On our leaf. I usually put it around the edges where the sleeves are darker. And still. You can do it in this one step or you can do it in two steps. So we'll move to the next live. And again, I obtained first and edges of the leaf and also with the stem and with the smaller brush. And only with the water. I move this paint wrong to make the transitions of the color. Lighter and smelter. That's to leave this center area bright, brighter than the edges. And again, I am putting some dark mane here. This peak area of this time is darker because it lies in shadow of the Natal, which lies in front of it. All I have some old pairs of my cat on it. Okay, so it looks nicer and nicer. So this piece of leaf will be dark because it's in the flower shape. This leaf also will be darker because it lies in the shadow of the first leaf. But I don't make it, make it too. I don't paint it with the darkest shade of green because it will create one area of dark color. And I don't want that. That's why I'm painting with layers sometimes. Because it's easier to see if everything is okay. If something, it's easier to notice that it's something, It's not try. And with this medium green, also, I will paint edges in here because it's too dry. But still, I will leave some white unpainted areas in here. And it doesn't matter if the police don't worry. If it creates it's okay. This paint to bleed. But I want this darker. If you want something to be even more dark and done it is, you can still paint another leaf, another layer of color while this dries. Okay, So let's check. I will switch to medium-size brush. Once again, we'll mix my colors once again. So I'm using sap green with the blue or the price. To make this darker shade of green? I will check. It. Don't have to be the same shade as you had before. It's even better if it's quiet. If it's different than before. The work will have more interest in these shades are slightly different if they are not the same on the whole work. So the second shade was green mixed together with the blue and a bit of magenta. Magenta to mu to the color. I see that now I have this almost brownish green and too much. So I will mix. Once again. For this mixture and more water. It's very thick. And let's check. Oh yes. I like that shape. Then, just like you see, it's different than before, before I created this one. And now it's like a bit greenish. It was more muted. This one is more greenish. And it was, in this one was more brownish because it was too much red in it. So again, let's spend starting from edges will use some water and make it flow. I started with the darkest one minus take, but doesn't matter. We'll put some light and color and move this around. If I won't know the central part of 35 to be lighter. You remember what to do with the clean what would the clean dry brush. I can still pick up some paint from it from the center. While this is still wet, you can dig this paint with a paper towel, but I prefer the brush might not better. So I'm teaching this method. It's my preferred one. And once again, this is edges and we have only two leaves left. So I'll start with this one because this is dry. So I Is the pain got on loading plates. So I'm painting put this medium color, blue color in my brush with water. And only would the water move this point to make this edges of the paint and not the signal. And on my darkest value. While this is still wet. And that's why the transitions of the color, I'll be softer. Wow, I like it looks Karsh, but when it dries, it will be a bit lighter. And this lighter green. And leave some white spaces between. Don't play with everything and with the water. Okay. The next, the next in the last petal, again would start with the color. We can even bring the whole petal with it. If only a small amount of the shape, small amount of the white, I will put some r value of green. Here. You did it. You make it to the very end. Can still add some more details. For example, in here, if you like. While this dries, you can still, but you don't have to. But we can still see what happens if you put some more pain. And congratulations, you did it. You painted you very beautiful peony flower in more realistic style. So congratulations. I want to see your work in the project section, so please share it with me. With me. I will be glad to see in say, thank you for painting with me. But this is not all in this course. In the next step we will be painting. But growth for our POD, galactic bug wrong. And for this next step, you can find another POME. You can have two versions of the P and the one on the white background and the second on the dark bark probe to see which one, even for you to see which one you like best. So see you in the next step where we will be painting our galaxy background. 8. 8. Galaxy background: Okay, so in this step, we are going to paint a galaxy background for our peony flower. To do that, we will use few colors at the beginning. We need to make them. So putting a lot of water, we need a lot of paint, obviously be because we have quite large background to paint. And so here I'm putting a lot of water on my palette. And I will be using a blue color. This color is like fog of low shape. And here I will make only follow blue color. For now it's very light, but I needed to be darker, so I'm adding more paint to learn to my mixture. Let's see. More paint. Let's add some more paint to it because I've got a lot of water. So one way to add more paint. So okay, let's have this shade of blue. And in the next lecture, I will also add a lot of water and to my magenta color, magenta, this shade of pink. And so I also mixed my magenta with water to achieve why it's tick color. So more paint and less water. Okay? And we need to have two more shades. One will be to go next, twit. Magenta to create for fish. Are Pysch, I don't know how to say that. But Berber, purple, shade of blue. So the same blue, same magenta I will mix. And let's see what we achieved. Bu it's quite nice. But I want it to be darker, so more, I need to add more of these two paints. More blue and more magenta. Once again, let's see how the paint is all. Even. I like this shape mock much than the previous one. This one is more into pinkish tones, but I like, I like, I like very much. And here I will put some water. Also a well-mixed my blue phthalo blue shade. But you can still use any other blue shade you have. And I will mix it with with pollution. Payne's gray. But if you don't have Payne's gray, you can always use black, a bit of black if you like. But I will use a bit of things. Create K and let's see, all three have, it will be our darkest shade color. Too little of Payne's gray. I need to add them up. Add more weight. Let's check. But still I will add more. Is crane I want this color to be even darker. Strip now. I know is so I will remove my car and I will make some room for anything. And we start to a painting background. The bigger brush, the better. We will be using wet on wet technique. So first, I will simply lay some water on my paper, a layer of water. And then I will be. Say kink, this paints which I have and mixed them with each other. The edges of our work, I want to be darker, so I am using this darker color at the edges and just sink it. But to alter with layer will turn away. Okay, So I'm going to draw this quite fast, but still you need to do child and the editors of your PL name. And the shade of blue next to the P on it, we will live very light. So don't paint dark colors in X to P. And just to use light blue or light pink are a lot of water to dilute the coloring. On the edges. You can also use only pays clay even under plan or something to make it even darker. And we want the edges to be very, very dark. But you can still, after the first two layers, dry, paint, another layer of color. I'm trying to add water on the edges. So make them not try complete Lee before I put some paint on them. Why it's not very easy to paint such alert areas. But you can do it. Okay. Tonight I'm thinking that the buckling of our work, which just means carets trait prompt, I'm trying to work it up. No. Edges to be soft. This code. Three more paint. You just run out the conditioning. So we've got almost everything roof. But still I will add some low 28. And here and here. While this is still wet. And also I will paint is applied penny us inside the flower with a very light shade of blue. Oh, nice job. Nice job. It's quite nice. Improve my edges here because I see some white spots. I hadn't faint. And that's it for now. We will add in a moment white spots with quash paint, with white quash. But to do that, we do right, though this does this layer is dry. So I will see you in a moment. Okay, so just like you see, my work is almost try. It's only weight on the edges. Here. I see that it's still shiny and wet. Also up here. But the rest of the background is dry. Don't like the result that these edges are too bright. I could paint another layer for my bug growth. But still I like this. I like this result. And I'm going to add only like stars. And I'm going to do, I'm going to use white quash. I have my squeezed from the tube in here. I did it yesterday, so I just simply add some water to it. And you can place something on your fear me. Some sheets of paper. I don't want my peony with white spots. I do mind the leaves. So I'll refer that but she likes to see. So with my white gouache on my brush, I'm making some dots. I see that I need more water mixed with my brush to make it merge, diluted. And still, I can add some more dots with the tip of my brush. And the places where I want them to be. She's here again. So this is how work looks like. I will remove this paper for you to see. I think it's beautiful. I wonder how your work is looking. So you can place it in the project area for me to see into my eye. Happy. I don't know if I'm saying it right. Okay. So if you finish to disappear new with me, please share your work with us in the projects area. I would be happy to see it. I would be happy to share your results and your work as an artist. In the next video, I will show you another way, easier way and much quicker way. Hi, how to paint a peony? And this time, this will be appealing in a loose style. So you can still choose which one of these two project would like to pay this more realistic Paeony on the galaxy pogrom. Are these more loose style looking? So see you in the next step. 9. 9. Peony in a loose style: Okay, So our last project in this class will be a peony, but in a very loose style. So let's mix some colors. First, we will use, for our, our class, we will use five colors. So first, we need some yellow. I usually use medium yellow. This is the yellow. And I'm mixing it with water. Less water, more pay because I wanted to see a little too big tick. And I don't need it too much. So this is how this color looks. Looks like. The second color will be very light. Ink. I'm using this Barstow, violet from White Nights. You can use, if you have Prima pastel, if you have Prima pastels, you can use pastel colors from that pace. And if you don't have similar, similar colors, you can mix white wash with pink or magenta watercolor and to achieve similar, similar shape. And this color, I'm mixing quitter lot of water to make it more transparent. We also need magenta, magenta or pink. If you don't have magenta, it can also be re, red shade. And the red shade you have. And we will also need some brown, but not much. You can even use it straight from the palette. It can be burnt sienna or burnt umber. Which one you like best. I'm using the number. But it can be any brown shade you have. On key using this one is one of my favorite, my favorite colors, just like you see. It's almost empty. And it's this color is like something similar to put requires. That I just loved that shape, so beautiful. If you don't have this color on your palette, you can try. You can still try to achieve it by mixing with the green. Lower the cream. But still, if you don't have this color, this through quite nice, you can still use any green shade or any blue shade or mixed end ingredient with any blue to see what shape do you, you will achieve. So this is all for our colors, and now we're starts, they think we will be painting a lucky few steps. First. I'm cleaning my brush and making, drew it dry. Ink my yellow from a palette into making some dots in the center of my center of my paper. These are stems of our flower. Next, okay, include brush again. Became my light pink color. And I will paint some petals with this rounded motion. And it doesn't matter if this yellow leads to your to your life. Hey, it's also doesn't matter if you leave some white spaces. And while this first layer of very light pink color is still wet, we peak with our clean brush. We pick some pain pink paint and place it at the edges of our light pink everywhere. In some places. But you need to be quick and do this before the first layer tries. Because we would like to achieve this transparent. We would like to achieve this first parent, Krazy Kat. Now, we need to wait until this dries and our we will add some more details. Okay, So I've got almost everything fry. Only the center part of the flower is still wet. And I've got also not allow my cat with me. And now we will be painting more details on our peony. So first, we will take this brown shade. She will have drawn four, and we will make some dots around the center part of the flower. Hour. This brown dots on my pink petals and around the yellow circles. And try, I'm trying to paint in a way that these brown down to bleed in yellow, but if it happens, it still it doesn't tomorrow, I think it will create some interesting results. So don't bother if it bleeds with the, with the yellow paint. I'm cleaning my brush, picking this magenta shade. When turn into or pink color. We mixed on our palette. And I will be painting some details on my flowers. So I will making my petals darker from the inside. With my tip of the brush. Only some stance. Simply with water and clean my brush and only with water. We'll dilute some of these areas. Not all, but just some to create interesting effects. Doing all this with this very quick movements. Still with the pink color straight from the palette, are in adding it to center of my flower. I want the center of the flower to be very, very better. To also create contrast with this yellow, yellow stem. So remember that this style is more loose so it doesn't have to be perfect. Okay? And the last thing, which we will add our beliefs. And I will be painting with my every shade of blue, green color. If the number 6, 8 brush I've got eight is too big for you. You can switch to the smaller number. Okay? So starting from Stan, seek my leaves around the flower. Suddenly see here it can. And eager one, smaller one. Tried to differentiate the leaves you paint and also the shade of this color. So sometimes I'm just speaking of water on my brush and paint which left on my brush. And lighter leaves is just this trick. Sometimes and sometimes. Okay, So see another living here. And I will rotate my work. Place, paint some more leaves here. Don't overthink it. Just like me. I see that this part of leaves is great. This part of this is great because it has a vast variety of different shades. And this one is quite flat because I painted everything in a one shade of that color. So I need some lighter petals in here to create more depth. Still, I can pick up my paint and and place it where my petals are still wet to make the darker shades see this one's also think it's going to delete all. This phone was easier one, do you agree with me? This was easier than very quick, very fun project, but it's in a loose style so you can try new things and don't bother that something goes wrong with your painting. So as a project to this class, just paint one of these peonies. You can choose which one you like. The loose style in a loose style are in this more natural looking. I would be more than happy to see what you had painted with me. So take care of yourself and see you in the next class.
