1. Welcome : Hi, My name is George. And in today's scores, we're gonna learn how to make these three beautiful watercolor paintings. This course is good for beginners and intermediates as well. For beginners who never painted before, we are going to learn tools to create beautiful marks and beautiful design. It's going to be an amazing experience. You're gonna have so much fun. We're going to go over basic exercises that you can do to learn how to paint with only one brush and learn how to use that brush to do a lot of different mark, step by step, encouragement on how to effectively to see Spain thing. You're gonna learn how to make a tree. You're gonna learn how to paint under and some beautiful flowers out to work with watercolor and how to build layers, make a beautiful design and get great period. This is very good for beginners as well for people who have painted before, Thank you. And I hope you will enjoy this 2. Materials: hi and welcome for this course. We're going to need four watercolor papers, one cup with water and to plates to mix our colors. Want to put the color and want to mix the colors? We are going to use only one color. This is magenta. On one brush with a tip, it has to have, Ah, small tip and then one pencil. You can choose to use a mechanical pencil or a normal pencil. It doesn't really matter on a liner, preferably very, very thin. And that was it. That's all we are going to use for this course. 3. Exercise One: for the first exercise, we are just gonna make some rectangles. Three rectangles to fill with different amounts color. We're just gonna know how to how the paint reacts when we mix with water and then just how intense it can get. So let's see, just making the last rectangle getting the brush on, getting a little bit of water and barely any paint, making them a very light rectangle just there. And look how beautiful no color is beautiful pink. Now, Weiqing it a bit more intense with the color and just make a medium color rectangle that we go with the medium color rectangle just making it. I had a intense making the color a little bit more intense to make the last rectangle. This will actually be a little bit different because we are going to get even more color. We can make that beautiful there rectangle that intense. Look how vivid this Connor is now. Beautiful 4. Exercise Two: no. For the next exercise, we're gonna have a lot more fun just making big line. And then from a small slowly building up to the same thickness we just made. And there we go, making a very thick and then going smaller, learning how to use the brush in a more intentional way, learning what it can do and how it can make those different marks and then trying to make just beautiful thin marks and keep them straight, making like a grid. Keep in mind, these exercises can be very good if you do them every time you start a new watercolor painting, and you can use this exercise to make ways as well, just having fun in between the lines going with waves seem what this brush can do on a little bit more wavy, just trying to keep those ways interesting. Andi sin. Now this is a very interesting way. I'm just loosening up and keeping that muscle memory in that is going with more lines, making this paper just a little bit more messy. Just a weekend, have fun and practice and not feel like we've just wasted a piece of paper, a piece of watercolor paper going over going over direct angles so we can see what a second layer of paint can do, and you can see on one to pick a little bit more color. And look how interesting that looks, making a thicker one so you could see how intense the sculler can get and then going sideways, just practicing a little bit more of those straight lines and then going the opposite direction, just filling and this one of colored paper and going over just making or kind of parallel minds. And there we go with the exercises. 5. Learning how to draw Feather: And now for this beautiful painting, we're gonna make a fender first, we're going to start by marking the edges of the feather and then rowing a line curved line from the bottom mark to the top mark. Now we're gonna work on the stem or whatever it's called off the feather, and then we're gonna have toe work a little bit on a beautiful start of the feather, which is a little bit more simple than it seems. So it's like beautiful staircase just going from one point and bigger. And then we can go for a little bit more curved lines and continuing over and connected with that spot we just marked at the top of the paper and then on the bottom, that's what trying to make thes curves a little bit more difference or the weight of the curve, the apex of the curve is on. The bottom is a bit lower and on the top, almost a perfect curve. So we got this feather. Look, keep in mind, this is just guidelines. We're gonna erase most of those lines in the end, but it's good to have them now. We're gonna just break this edge that we just created this outline this perfect feather outlined by making some Mark's going almost close to the stem. And then as we go up and up the feather in the beginning, they go almost to the point we started making that complex staircase, and then as we go up and up parallel to the to the line So we're imagining this almost connecting nine course. This is just to understand how fetter looks and how easy it is to draw this kind of photo. Now we can go from the stem and just draw in between those lines that we just created. And that was it. If you want to find, um, you will find a reference image where it's more defined. You will find a reference image of this fetter and the resource is page of discourse. Thank you. 6. Watercolor is our friend: Now we're just going to start taking some water, a little bit of that color, magenta, and we're gonna go over. Oh, the flowers. Starting with the middle one. Just covering the home, entire flower and the pedals and more. Just going to lay down a flat wash, just going over the flowers, going down bottom flour and then going for the right hand side flower. That's quite a beautiful flower. We dismayed here, and we're just gonna go with the wash and then moving into the next flower on the right hand side corner using a lot of water just to make these marks on this first coat pained this first layer of bank very, very light just so we can have something toe work on a base over all the flowers on the left hand side, going forward flowers. They're not forgetting for the not forgetting to go all over them. And then we can go in the mental and then we can go over no cherry blossom flower. Now is it? First wash 7. Small calm lines: Now we're just going to start by taking some water and a little bit of that color that magenta and a lot more water to make this beautiful wash all over the feather. We are using a lot of water just to make these marks. And this first coat pained this first layer of bank very, very light just so we can have something toe work on a base. We're going over the feather, and we're trying to use the exercises we've learned in the first video. Now, here we go with some nice nice lines, understand? And going over these marks we just made and even breaking them a little bit more trying to make this federal look a little bit more interesting. And here we know we're leaving a little bit of white for the stem to show, Dr Father. And then we're just going with small marks. Just going with the feather with lines we created has a guideline in the drawing process and then using many different markets, big strokes, small strokes, thin strokes and just building does beautiful edges. Just to be finding a little bit. And let's see if we can take a of that color. And as you can see, it just started to look beautiful on, please. Quite interesting toe work colors. Yes. Working on that top side of the fender on the metal and understand. We can make it a little bit darker as well. Yeah, the last mark just cleaning up that has to make this the middle stem just a little bit finer. There we go. 8. Textures and detail: okay. After the first layer has grind, we can start working on the second layer paint. We're just gonna take a lot of and more water, a little bit more color on and just keeping this color lights. We are going to start on the feather, making these small lines. They connect more to the bottom of the stem to the middle of the Feder and they just ban out basically like finally so just making small lines and then connecting them a little bit at the bottom of the feather going over that stem to make it a little bit more intense. We're just going to start on a small, beautiful inches. You might feel like it's having a calming effect on you. That's because it has. It is going to calming relaxed, beautiful Feder. We're just going to go over this going not straight when a little bit curved with the lines and then connecting them. And don't forget to leave a little bit of you know, that separation between does lines near the edge of the father and then connecting them at the stem on, we can go further. This grouping grouping a little bit and then leaving a nod er and not her bigger gap and then grouping them again. We're just working on groups and making them a little bit more different, trying not approach, just curving, making the curves a little bit more fast. So they have this interesting character a little bit more slow variation, going opposite direction with with, uh, curves and just working as you can see where you can keep going faster as you feel more comfortable and more confident with the lines congest make them a tat more faster on here. We know on the top to keep this going. We are leaving this beautiful gap, and we are just continuing with this, making it a little bit more interesting. Don't forget to leave the layer underneath. Show a little bit true because that's why we applied it. Just leave it a little bit. All been. So we have some utter shapes underneath, just showing a little bit through taking a little bit more color and a little bit more water. Make these beautiful marks at the end of the father. As you can see, you can also take a little bit more color and going over already even though it's wet and just creates this beautiful be wonderful. It just creates this interesting layer defects. And here we go it iss quite relaxing. In fact, on, after you've caught the paint out of the brush, you can also go back in those areas that are too intense, and you can make them a little bit less intense by just getting a little bit of that color our and about. And, as you can see just now blended with the other layer, making the stand once again working on those edges curves just finally and refining structure of this fatter Yeah, making It seems like it just had so many intricate liars. Oh, so keeping it calm by making some marks that are a little bit thicker as well, Combining those in no small marks with bigger marks and then going Tom with some more. Angie's making them a little bit more interesting, just making them look a little bit like they go outside of the outline going. Oh, and those layers once again here, wink, you're just on about to finish. We're working on that metal part, just making it out of it a little bit on work taking a bit of color, just making a few Mine's a few beautiful lines on going with some thick ones, merging where you feel like it has too much complexity. Just go over with wash and combined those layers to give it a little bit of calmness as well. We are basically calming down areas and agitating areas to make a interesting design. How is it? 9. Layers: So we're going in What? The turned layer this time a little bit more intense. And as you can see, it is just going to seem even more interesting. We've what The metal just so it bleeds a little bit in. So we're taking making this layer a little bit more intense, and you'll see it just starts to look even more interesting. Just give it. It just gives it this more of a three dimensional law because we're having overlapping fetter hairs if you can cold in there and it just starts to look a little bit more pink, and then we're gonna go the same motions we just learned just keeping the brush likely in our hand and going on what fine lines from the middle of this them from the middle of the Feder and just going on and then prolonging what we just painted or going over keeping in mind to keep those layers have been more clean, so we don't overlap. The whole Feder, As you can see it, has some variation. So some layers, the first and the second layer, is still showing through, so that that's exactly what gives it this beautiful effect this beautiful, layered effect we're going and making it more intricate. You can go in between those layers you just created previously and then just going with more color. Combining those layers, I'm making them. It's that now and making it seem like it's even more complicated. But it's fun and relaxing. Watercolors are very fun. So there we go. We are just about to finish just a few more lines. Words up just about finished this layer and forget the let it dry in between steps. 10. Feather last dab of paint: after the turn layer has dried, we can now go in with some more color. If you think that this could not get more interesting, it will this look at how intense the color can become just layering in. We are just at the fourth step and the last color step. So here we go, starting with small part, the fatter and then just working our way. Line with mine with line and going over to stem as well and more lines as you can see the fourth layer of pain. It just pops out even more and defines this fetter just so much better now you can just be a little bit more colorful. Well, what color? Look how it pops even know it's the same color. It just looks so much better. And we can go and remember to connect those going over just by the stem and then making small lines, remembering to keep those layers clean. Keep them separate, is not going over fatter, just grouping and then leaving some spaces and then grouping again and it will start to look very beautiful. Remember, just barely touching to make to make small. Then marks were just barely touching the the paper with the tip of the brush. And then we can go in the opposite direction and make up interesting of shade. Uh, just continuing on the bottom half of the Feder were almost that top, getting a little bit more color and this step, you need to take color a few more times. Just have that intensity and that beautiful, intense magenta color. This is shaping up to be a beautiful, beautiful, fatter, going over the stem with a fine line and getting more color, getting a little bit more intense. And look that this is very, very intricate design. We're just building layer after layer to make it seem like it's so complex but basically repeating the same step over and over again. Just making those bottom layers show letting them show true. So with chills that it's very complex, which is not. It's very easy and fun. It's very on. Here we go. Just keeping that those breast strokes in light. This is almost over, combined for the final strokes, just going to go at the edge of in fact, there we go. We have just finished the colored step 11. Feather intresting outlines: on. Here we go with the liner now, going with the liner. Keep in mind, we don't have to be exact weaken. Just they leave parts like we did with the brush. Just leave some parts, Not outlines ones that we press Harner on. Ones that we press lighter, as you can see, starting with those intricate we can go. You've been hired under Fetter just outlining and then is leaving some marks like that just breaking that edge, not continuing the whole fatter. Just knowing what is breaking that line and then continuing onwards leaving space is making the line thinner, just completely not making a mark and then even more lines, then making some small lines from beggar lines, sometimes not even connecting them, just making them part parallel and then going from the opposite direction. This is a very interesting technique. Very just about touch the paper and then makes marks. We are not making an outline. We're just making some interesting marks so that it seems a little bit more interesting and a little bit more diapers. Okay. Going over some areas going under Ernest on we can go on the bottom part. Yes, beautiful. Just making small and then medium and big strokes as well. Just combining this idea where we are making a small a medium and a big line and then going further, leaving some spaces untouched, moving backwards to give a little bit more interest and then keeping in mind big, medium, small or small, medium big and then continuing on with the feather just barely touching. Oh, are you can go. Even liker depends on how you want the feather to look, experiment and feel free to see how it goes. We are just connecting in the bottom part with top. I'm Dan just going to make some more fast marks. This giving it a little bit of a more interesting look as well. And then going from the stamp to the mental again on the bottom part as well. We're going from the middle. The changes of the founder. What the line. A few more marks and the Feder is done. Here we go. Look how beautiful it ISS. This was so easy with four layers of pains and one of liner we've learned so much we've learned how to layer how to use the brush. Better would learn how toe outline by not outlining. And we've learned how the basic shape of a fetter can look more interesting. Thank you. 12. Tree drawing: So this is going to be very interesting. We are starting to draw the three, starting with a base this lightly touching the paper. And then we're gonna go for the bark, uh, Cree itself. I'm just gonna go up, but one tweet and then make one branch just going from there and then ah, continuing continuing upwards with another branch. And then this is a little bit of a trick. We're going with one branch and then on the opposite side, just a little bit higher, just not from the same exact point on the branch. Just a little bit higher. We can make another branch just over there just going up on showing it going up, making sure that the branch is properly outlined and it follows this rule where it starts a little bit thicker on goes a little bit thin air. And now let's go on the right side and create some other branches as well. We're not going to go overboard with the branches because we are going to color this beautiful tree. It's going to cover on the branches. So no worries on the complexity of the branches. A few is enough, and we can make a not a one on the right side, just going like that. As you can see, they're not very wavy. They're kind of straight and then making the outline of the three itself. We're going just like that, just like writing, but a little bit more interesting. Just letting that pencil just play on the paper and make this beautiful shape just like that, and we can break it even more. Makesem honor marks Makesem holes for the birds to show to fly through. And we can outline a little bit more just making those lines better. And that was it. This is the drawing. You will find a picture at the end of this video as well as in the project. Resource is 13. Tree first wash: Okay, let's start with a wash on the three. We're just going to go over the marks. We just main just loosely covering everything and breaking it a little bit more, making more of a broken puzzle piece there and here and there. And then just going over the outline, not thinking too much about the shapes but also leaving some holes for the birds and going even for their leaving some spaces where the wash is not exactly connected. And then making this beautiful light wash would want a color just like that, and then playing with the brush to make more textures and more outlines, connecting some parts and then moving to another part to just make it more diverse. And then we can take a little bit more color and added to certain certain parts on the right side of the three. And going over just while at the paint is wet to just let it blend in and connecting the right part a little bit more, breaking that edge, going quite fast and making sure that we don't make a perfect edge, we keep it organic. We keep it like nature, and then we can say that this step is over 14. Tree building more detail: we can go with the second layer with a little bit more paint, a little bit more water after the first layer has dried and we can start to just work on those edges, just making small marks and leaving them and connecting them so we can have a little bit more diversity. So it seems like we have done hundreds and hundreds of leaves. But actually we just made a few important ones right at the edge is on building these batches, building these batches off color here and there at the edges, starting from the left side and then going down, going somewhere, just changing the area. And then, after we are satisfied with one area, we can go to another one. We can also press harder on the brush to make bigger ones breast, like likely to make small ones, just stapling the paper and making beautiful marks trying to keep the organic feel off the tree. And then we can move on to the metal sign near the hole for the birds, and we can just break that even more. Make it even more interesting, taking more color putting and continuing to build the second layer on the second texture, getting a little bit of color from here and there, putting a little bit more water in. And here we go. We're halfway there. Just as you can see, it just builds this three dimensional effect that has really, really interesting. It's another way of making textures and making a great design for your watercolor paintings as well as other being things. Just playing with colors, going over the ones we already create and then continuing on the right side with some more stapling. Does not thinking to march on Lee, only paying attention to edges and filling in another layer. Keeping in mind, too? Leave the one we just made a little bit showing. So then we go and take a little bit more color for the right. Signed. This side will be a little bit more colorful on. We are just being careful not to cover the branches too much and then going with the edges and Semaj is we haven't touched yet. We can go over does as well. We can just build another beautiful patch just over here and then going quite fast, we can move up and down and sideways on the tree to make even more marks. It is quite a relaxing and fun activity, and then we can go even darker with the color and make on the right side, lower right side of the tree. We can make some patches that are darker and then getting even more color, and we can go on the left side of right left side, and then we can go even darker with more. Water can also put a little bit. If we water it down, we could put a little bit in the metal and just make those leaves in that tree looking even more dimensional, as you can see, getting a little bit more water and color to go over layers. Yeah, weekend. Just take that intensity out with a little bit of water and then scraping it on, getting even more color to go on the right bottom side of the tree. And then just continuing with this texture and putting in even more color building more foliage, small marks, just rolling them on, just making them look even more natural. Just putting downs and more leaves and some more texture. It's very fun, lose and interesting to do this. And you can also feel happy that you made this beautiful cherry blossom tree. And now we can go leave it to dry and we can go to the next step. 15. Tree the magic of color: after the last step is dry. We can just go even darker with almost pure color and make some darker parts on the right side, just keeping the same texture and the same way of replying paint, keeping it loose and fun, making small marks, deliberate marks, organic marks and just building those layers up. As you can see, it looks so three dimensional. If you turn it upside down, it looks like a heart, which is quite nice. And then we can go. What a little bit more water on the middle signed on the right side. We are just going to build those textures and leaves layer by layer and just starting to shape up just great. And there we go. We are done with the color. 16. Liner tree: with the liner weakened. Now, after the last layer has dried, we can now go over the pencil lines, just keeping in mind like the feather. We are not making a perfect outline here. We are just making here and there some marks for the grass in at the bottom of the tree and then for the bark of the tree and then for the three itself and his branches. And then we can work on the branch a little bit, just going up, keeping in mind to wiggle. You're liner just a little bit to make it even more interesting, giving it a better design Overall, As you can see, you can also go twice over the line so it builds a little bit of interest. You can also vary the line my making. It's a little bit curvy at some points, and where a branch meets another one, you can intensified the smaller angle where it meets, so you can clearly defined how branches spread out industry. As you can see, we are just over there on the left side, working on some branches. As you may know, branches are not always so perfect, so don't be very judgmental of your branches. Every branch is a happy branch is building in those shapes. We left out the bird spaces, building some nice branches as well there making at least to just dividing in that part of the painting. You can also go a little bit over the color just so we can show that certain leaves are a little bit more transparent. Certain areas and certain foliage is behind these branches. We can also draw a little bit and intensify a little bit of the branches over on the left hand side where, where we have left space for them and then just making sure it's not just one branch, but morning one, I suggest two or three remembering to make them just offset. And then we can go over the whole tree with a little bit of a lighter touch and make making it a little bit of bark and a little bit of a texture, just going up and down, as you can see in making it more interesting than just the white three. This is a very nice cherry blossom tree we have made. I hope it was very enjoyable for you, and I hope you're ready to make the flowers, which are even more interesting. We have started with the Feder now going over the tree that we can go over the flowers. We can intensify the right hand side of the tree a little bit more because we can show that way a little bit more. Three dimensionality to the peace. Yes, we are done with the street. Can you believe it? It looks awesome and looks amazing. And I hope you will share a photo of your creation as well. 17. Flowers drawing: Okay, here we go. Going with the pencil and making some flowers. We can make a big flower around, but not perfectly rounds. And then we can make some pedals for it as well, just as little triangles or ovals on the whole side of the flower. Just like that. Making some beautiful, interesting paddles. Just going over a chowder and Dan building. And not a one on top of it right next to it, making it a little bit more round and then making a little bit of a tip. Four. This pedal. Now we can make the last petal, and the pedals can also have some beautiful parts where they turn and they make this beautiful shape just almost bar allowed to do petal. You can also make one circle in the middle of the flower, and then we can start on the second flower, which will be a different flower this time with cherry blossom flower. And it's very easy. We're gonna make a circle and then a paddle just like that. It's a very simple shape. It's very small at the circle and then getting a little bit thicker and then smaller again , keeping in mind vary the line not making very perfect. Just make it a little bit more organic. Let your hand move a little bit on the edges and making them have their own personality. So each petal should have a different personality. We can think of them as different people. We can also have a flower as a side view on the right side of the big flower, and it's just very easy to do. Just gonna build a little bit of a outline and a smaller pedal. And then we're gonna build three or four more petals and just right behind it we can make a very easy tree. Battle flour. It's that easy. And then we can also make a little bit of ah, flower that opens up just over there on the right bottom side, and we can also make a stem for this one. We could make a beautiful stem just like that. Now let's move on on to the left side. As you can see, we are going a little bit faster. Just making this bell shape with paddles. That's all it is, is just a bell shape. Well, flower shape from the side you can call it however you want, you are having fun now. We can make another one a little bit faster on the bottom side, keeping in mind not to disconnect the flowers that march, just making them seem like they grow out of each other. And you're also going to find a picture at the end of this video as well as on the project resource. Is Paige going with another flower this time? Would one that is like a bud? Ah, then we can just make a spiral in the middle of it, making the pedals overlap a little bit and then trying to make one with stem as well. Or we can just make not a big one, this one. We can just about see one peddle trying to get away. So let's just make it not run away. And then just making a not a one building a big battle and then two on its side on the top side, we can just make a simple one that's so easy. It's unbelievably easy, as you can see, three pedals just growing out of the out of flowers. And now let's just build one that is not connected and has A. But by now you're an expert at making these kinds of flowers and then some pedals. And then we can make not a one just like that. Easy ovals connected to distended. We are just about done with the step so you can also check to see if yours looks almost the same. We can go into the next step. 18. Flowers first first wash: Now we're just going to start taking some water, a little bit of that color, magenta, and we're gonna go over. Oh, the flowers. Starting with the middle one. Just covering the home, entire flower and the pedals and more. Just going to lay down a flat wash, just going over the flowers, going down bottom flour and then going for the right hand side flower. That's quite a beautiful flower. We dismayed here, and we're just gonna go with the wash and then moving into the next flower on the right hand side corner using a lot of water just to make these marks on this first coat pained this first layer of bank very, very light just so we can have something toe work on a base over all the flowers on the left hand side, going forward flowers. They're not forgetting for the not forgetting to go all over them. And then we can go in the mental and then we can go over no cherry blossom flower. Now is it? First wash 19. Flowers building more details: So after the first layer has dried, we can now start on the 2nd 1 We can go in between those battles we just created for Middle Flower and then working our way around the middle flower. Just building those layers and making them look pretty nice. We could go even faster. Speaking of slower weaken work, however we want, and then we can continue our way forward and we can use more color. Leave a little bit of spaces where we don't. Don't put this wash on the pedals and then making another mark, moving to the right hand side of the painting of the flower and putting in some petals over there. Just making some marks slowly working our way to the next battle until we meet the pedals we just made on the other side, just working slowly and then revisiting some of the pedals, making a little bit more oven. Interesting design. Then do a wash on the middle of the flower and on the edges as well. We can start to use the same technique we've used for the Feder to make thes interesting small little pedals, as we did with the feather Weaken. Now merge them towards the middle, going with small and long curves with the tip of the brush and just going around the middle flower. It gives it this nice, beautiful design. We can go fast, we can go slow. We can't go however we want. You can just continue on the second part of the flower and continue to build that layer and that interesting aesthetic. And then we can take a little bit more color on, continue on the middle of the flower and just with small dots, make this beautiful, interesting shape in Kanata. Beautiful pattern in the middle of the flower. And then we can go with the same motion just over the wash. We just did building a little bit off interesting shapes and clumps of pedals. And then, just like that, we are almost done with second layer on this flower. And then we can move on to our beautiful, beautiful flower on the right hand side, turning a little bit sideways and then putting some battles over it, remembering to leave out a little bit off the layer underneath and then going in the corner for that beautiful flower bud, just making it even more delicate. We can now go above the flower bud for that interesting flower behind turning one. We're just varying the lines and we can go on the cherry blossom flower above, and we can make some lines keeping the middle white. And then we can just work our way on every petal and we can work on left side near the mental flower, just putting a little bit of a another layer on that flower as well and work our way to the top. Just look how beautiful these flowers are shaping up. Then we can move to the bottom of the painting and putting another layer on those flowers as well, just keeping it light and beautiful, just easy and fun. We can just treat the outside flowers. The flowers on the edge is we can treat a little bit more loose and easy because these are not the focus off the painting that they also need a little bit of a little bit of attention as well. And then we can take a little bit more color and then going in the corner for that beautiful flower bud, just making it even more delicate. We can now go above the flower bud for that interesting flower behind turning one. We're just varying the lines and making sure we have covered with this layer as well. On the lower part of the painting, we can now build this beautiful flower and make it look amazing. And then we can start working on the left hand side flower. We can start to layer immediately, just another, more intense layer. We can build a little bit of separation between the pedals by just outlining wet the brush and with the sculler just outlining either the interior edge of a pedal or the exterior edge of a pedal where they meet and then we can go work on on her flowers. Aziz Well, with the right hand side, and then we can go with the but just above the medal flour and look how easy and fast it can go once you get the hang of it and we can go in the middle of cherry blossom flower and we can make some nice dots over there to accentuate that. That is the mental, the flower keeping in mind, too. Leave outs and white parts as well. And then we can with a little bit more color and water. We can work on a small little flower at the corner as well as working our way down and to the next flower, just alternating between flowers and making sure it just looks quite interesting and that every flower has been touched with this layer of paint now taking a little bit more color and making in the center of the middle flower weakened. Now beautifully build this daughter line circle line, and we can just move on to building another layer of beautiful pedals. By now, you are very good at doing those kind of lines and and just continuing with the intricate design lower on the lower part of the flower and just taking a little bit more color and breaking those edges of the flower just like that. Look how wonderful it is moving on to the second half of the flower. We're taking a little bit more color, and then we can work on the site pedals as well, just going down away. And then we can work a little bit on the pedals just like that. And look how beautiful with just not a layer of paint it started toe look just absolutely beautiful. But don't worry, we are going to make it even better 20. Flowers working on the design: and here we go. After the last layer has dried, we can now start on another one, just with a lot of color. Just putting that beautiful magenta color. In the middle of the centre flower were a little bit of dots and then small lines in between and over a little bit of the layers we've already built to make it even more interesting. Look how beautiful and how organic this flowers are shaping up to be. And we can go over the pedals as well, going in at the edge where the pedals meet the actual flower, and we can just move a little bit faster over the rest of the flower, just keeping it very abstract and lose. And then our favorite flower, the right hand side flower weaken. Just build another layer at the bottom of the flower and over the pedals in the distance, and then we can move our way on to the flower at the bottom, taking a little bit more color. And remember to separate the pedals a little bit by going over the edge right where two pedals, meat and flowers tend to have a little bit more color, right where they end right at the stem, and then we can go over the opening flower, the flower, that it's the flower that's opening and then and we can work our way like this over all the flowers. We can go over the top one and then build a little bit of layers in the middle of the cherry blossom on the right hand side and then over the pedals on. Here we go. We can go over the pedals, keeping in mind, too. Let them have their own personality. With every mark we make, it should be like a different purse, and then we can move on toe another pedal, just doing the same. We can also move on to another flower entirely, and we can work on those pedals, building those layers, getting a little bit more color, giving a little bit of attention. Toe all the flowers we have just painted, man moving on, trying to see where the color goes. We have built this beautiful layer of paint. We can build a little bit more separation in between those pedals on the right hand side, but a lot more color. We can just about see how this beautiful. And how this how delicate this flowers it's shaping up to be. And then we can go on the flower just next the wet, wet, a little bit of water and on the bod in the corner, just like that loose, interesting marks loose, interesting marks. And here we go. We can move on to the cherry flower and just build the center and some petals. We can just create this beautiful build that separation just over there getting more color , beautiful shapes, the middle of the center flowers and also of on the petals, as well as building even more layers of petals on this flower. More separation and even more interesting design working on and bottom flour and then moving on to the left side and then to a notto want to build a not a beautiful pedal. Look how beautiful that last few marks are this painting and that beautiful flower in the right hand side, just turning a little bit away from months and then putting on the flower that is right next to it of a little bit more color. Look how beautiful this painting is shaping up to become okay. 21. Flowers dancing with the outlines: and here we go. With the last step of this beautiful course, we are going to use the liner to make outlines. Keep in mind those outlines don't always need to be perfect outlines. You can wiggle and dance with the liner a little bit, and then you can just leave out a little bit of the outline unconnected to the rest. Build layers like we did with the pains. We can go over the lines we already created and then come back over them and then leave out parts. We compress harder to make interesting lines and then weaken just about dance with the liner on the center flower. We are just making this flower look so interesting just by wiggling that line, disconnecting it and reconnecting it, going over, uh, battles in the middle. And then look at how we can build this layered center at the flower with small little circles just here and there. And it's starting to shape up to be one of the best flowers in this painting. You can just go over and play around with the liner just like that. I don't think about it too much. Just use what you have learned until now to just play with the liner like you played with the brush and with the pencil keep in mind, we have to make some interesting edges exactly like we did in the Feder and with three. And then we can make some pedals and those turning battles as well, and we can wiggle them and we can just play and build layers with the center flower being in the center of attention, we can just build right at the edge where the pedals meet the inside pedals. We can just build another layer of lines. Just give it just this interesting effect of three dimensionality. And we can just build even more lines, just interesting and dancing and abstract lines, giving it more oven organic feeling to the flower on dancing if you've never painted before and then this dancing with the liner is amazing. It's such a great feeling to let go and just do some Wigley interesting lines and just following the shapes that we've already created and going in the centre flower once again, we can just about see how much attention this flower gets, so it starts to look so much more interesting and we can move on toe otter flowers just building those lines, making sure that the pedals where they meet each other and they cross over. They are more intensified, keeping in mind to make these beautiful outlines thicker and thinner and wiggly just going over the favorite flower. And then look at how beautiful it's starting to shape up. And we can make some small and dinners. Or however they are called, just making them going up and down with a circle in the mental. At the end of the beautiful antenna, you can also go over the lines you've created with the pencil. Even though there is no color touching the liner, it gives this feeling this loose feeling of illustration. We can also work on the flower at the top, just making that beautiful center look textured. And then we can make the pedals making their character look, giving them a little bit more character by making each one different. And then we can just go on to the next battle and the next pedal and the next one. We can just go inside to make those differences in between the pedal just stand out and the middle and not a flower. Just by making those battle pedals stand out more and making them look like they're overlapping each other. And then we can move on, not thinking too much and building more of this interesting liner outline. You'll start to feel like it's something so easy and so fun to build, just like that fast and lose interesting pedals, just looking like they are just about to touch each other and then moving on to the next one. You can just make that, but make some lines that don't really appear just to make it a little bit more interesting . Just like that. And with the buds, you can also go over the battles and then go over the stem itself. Just like that, making some lines, making going over the pedals, making them a little bit more sharp on. We can just about see how this interesting, beautiful watercolor flower painting is starting to shape up. Look at how much those Beddoes are just identifiable now because we've used the liner. It's very interesting to combine this liner technique what the water colors as well it just gives it this illustration. Two additional illustration. Feeling and moving on to the last flowers. It would be very interesting to see how your aren't works ended up looking. And if you liked it, please leave a review. And thank you very much for taking this time to paint this beautiful paintings.
