Transcripts

1. Introduction: Hi friends, thanks for joining the class. My name is Shiba. I'm an artist instructor and a UTI. Well, this is my third skill, Czech glass and I'm very excited to share a very beautiful painting with the all. In today's painting glass, we will learn how to draw a beautiful sunset landscape of an open field using watercolors. I will give you some step-by-step guide and walk you through my materials so that you can also follow along. So without wasting time, let's get started. 2. Art Materials Used: Hi guys, welcome back. So in this part we will discuss what are the materials we will be using for this particular painting. The people which I'm using is a 300 GSM cooled press people, twenty-five percent CO2. E five says, You can also use a 100% cotton paper, but keep in mind that you have to vet it thoroughly before application of beans. For the watercolor paints. I'm using a Windsor and Newton kaufman. These are the US well sheets and these are very beautiful colors, highly pigment it. For the masking tape, I'm using a simple masking tape, half-inch, and a hair dryer. Here I'm using a two types of water. One to clean my brush and the other one as mixing medium. For the brushes, I'm using three mop brushes with number 420. These are good brushes from brushstroke might be, it's not available somewhere in other countries, but you can use any available brushes you have. For detail purpose, I am using two brushes. E1 is the rigorous and other one is the round brush from Sinaloa raffle, these artificial hair brushes, but they work very fine just like normal National HIV. And the number which I am using is 84. And for the flat washes I'm using are 20 millimeter flat brush from soft aqua. So these are the materials which we will be using for this painting. So without wasting time, let's get started. 3. Working on the First Layer: Hi guys, welcome back. So in this part we will work on the first layer. I'm starting with a blank masking tape, all that on the paper so that we get a clear edges at the end of the building. I will be using a wet on wet technique. So I am starting with a 20 millimeter flat brush from Sinai. Let Apple soft dacron with a loaded brush with a good amount of water and then we will apply it throughout the people. Here I'm using twenty-five percent cotton people, which is a 300 GSM from cholesterol. If you're using a paper which is a 100% cotton, then apply atleast two layers of order because it needs a lot of water or else it wouldn't drive faster. Now I'm using a brush number four, which is a mock brush from cholesterol and very draws sun in a circular V. You can use any available brand of modulus you have. While drawing the sun. We will apply the colors a little bit away from the center. The reason is that once the people is dry and we will see that the color flus inward, making the circular shape of the sun a little smaller. So this is the reason we will be applying the color a little bit of 0s so that at the end of the painting, we get a size of the sun that we actually required. For drawing the sun. I'm using a mixture of two colours. One is the cadmium yellow and other is a cadmium red. I will be using a cadmium yellow in pure form close to the sun. And as we will move away from the sun, we will be adding more and more cadmium red. So now I'm adding a little bit of bonds CNR to the mixture of cadmium red and cadmium yellow to get our darker tone and will apply on the upper portion of the sky, adding a little bit of darkness. I've also added a little touch of burned on board as well and apply it to the upper portion of the sky. For the lower portion of the sky, I will use a mixture of burnt umber mixed with cadmium red and cadmium yellow. Now it's time to add a little bit of more darkness to the top portion of the sky. For this, I'm using a little bit of burnt umber with burnt sienna. While applying the mixture, we will try to blend the colors and tried to make the colors flow downward using water. The brush which I'm using is a more brush number four, it's time to draw clouds. We will draw the clouds are at the same time when the pupil is still wet because we don't want any type of hard edges. At the end of the bending. For drawing the clouds, I'm using a mixture of burnt umber mixed with burnt sienna and cadmium red. For the clouds, which are a little bit away from the sun, we will use a machine of burnt umber mixed with burnt sienna, but we will not include cadmium red. We will draw the clouds very loosely without getting on board the ship. Because this will help us to get some natural looking clouds. Now I'm making some small adjustments to the cloud. As you can see on the screen, just draw some basic shapes. The VM drawing. You can see how beautifully the clouds are coming without any type of hard edges. It stemmed to add shadows to the clouds. For this, I'm using the mature of a burnt umber mixed with intensive blue. And we will apply quickly when the people is still red. Apply only on those portions which are away from the sun, as you can see on the screen. For the clouds which are on the left, I have applied the colors on the left side, as well as for the clouds which are on the right or above the sun. I have applied the Michelle on the upward portion of the cloud because we knew that the lower portion of the cloud is getting the sunlight. We will also add some Dhaka collect loads using the same mixture. For the clouds, which are the lower portion. We will add the shadows to the lower portion because that area is getting less of sunlight. Now I'm adding a little bit of more darkness to the upper corners of the building. For this, I'm using the same Musharraf, burnt umber mixed with intense blue. And we'll bring the close down blending them with water. So you can see I'm adding a little bit of more adjustment to the lower portion of the painting. All these adjustments need to be performed. Venti people is still wet. Before doing this firstly, it's very important to wear down the people totally so that you can be and, and make adjustments for a longer time. I'm adding a little bit of more details to the clouds which are at the left, as you can see. I hope you have understand the Firstly, the drawing of the leaves and the ground. I will cover it in the next session. And I hope to see you. Thank you so much. 4. Painting Ground: Hi gays, in this part we will draw the ground. And for this I'm using brush number eight, which is a Sinaloa raffle soft aqua brush. As you can see, I've started by adjusting the shape of the sun. We will pick any extra color if it is entered in the circumference of the sun so that we could get a clear white sand. Every time we will pick up the color, we will wash the brush. And for this, I'm using a damn brush with a very little amount of water in it. Now it's time to draw the ground for this. The colour which I am using is burnt sienna mixed with burnt umber and a little bit of cadmium red. You can also add a little bit of cadmium red mixed with intense glue and then we will apply it onto the people. It might be very hard to get the perfect color because the quantity may differ. So I would suggest just mix the color according to the colors that you are seeing on the screen. You may even experiment with your own colors, just try to maintain the right values of the column. I will not be giving much attention on the details and just create some small grasses here and there, as you can see on the screen. The ground is just a silhouette with not much details. For dark color grasses and leaves on the ground, I have mixed the intense blue with burnt umber and then applied. So you can see how beautifully and easily I have covered the ground. I hope you have understood how to draw the ground, the painting of leaves and stems I will cover in the next session, and I hope to see you there. Thank you so much. 5. Painting Stems and Leaves Part-1: Hi everyone, welcome back. And this part we will draw the leaves and stems. For this, the colour which I am using is burnt umber mixed with intense blue. And the glass which I'm using is a rigor brush number food from Sinaloa soft Abdullah. In this bending the mean focus point or the stems and leaves. So we will draw them very accurately and slowly as you can see. Because once you made a mistake at this point, it's very hard to get it back. I must say it's not impossible, but yes, the painting might look dirty. So be very careful while drawing this. As you can see on the screen, that I'm drawing each leaf very slowly and giving a lot of time. While drawing the leaves close to the sun, we will use a little bit of red for which I am using a mixture of cadmium red mixed with crimson. And then we will apply, we are going to shift to a darker tone, that is the Musharraf intense Bluemix flipped, burnt sienna. Once we draw the stem reaching close to the ground. In the CNV, I'm drawing some more stems and leaves. I will draw them one by one. You can draw as many as you want. Just keep in mind that once we draw the stems, are the leaves close to the sun. We will add a little bit of redness to it. Either we can add a mixture of crimson red mixed with cadmium red, or you can use them separately. This will make the building look more beautiful. So it's time to draw some more stems and leaves on the left side for this IS started with a little bit of red. The one which I have achieved by mixing crimson red with cadmium red. For the stem which is at the center of the sun. I have not drawn it completely just to show that the amount and the intensity of light which is coming from the sun is more than enough to feed the stamp. Let us quickly draw some more plants here and there. Now I'm adding a little bit of more leaves to the stem. We have drawn at first. For this, the mixture which I'm using is in dense blue mixed with bunt Amber. I hope you'll understand how to draw this beautiful leaves and stem. In the next session, I will be doing some more leaves and stems. And I hope to see you there. Thank you so much. 6. Painting Stems and Leaves Part-2: Hi gays, in this part we will draw some more leaves and stems. This is just a continuation of the previous spot. So we will draw some more leaves at first clues to the sun for this mixture, which I am using, is crimson red mixed with cadmium red in a very dilute form. As Vivian move away from the sun, means as we will draw the leaves away from the sun, we will be adding more and more darker tones for drawing the leaves which are at the top of a from the sun. I'm using a machine of intense blue mixed with bond. This is the reason the leaf are looking a little bit darker in color. Let's draw some more leaves on the upper side. Drain. These leaves are very easy as you can see. I will be giving some strokes, but tried to maintain the basic shape and structure of the leafs. Let's quickly draw some more on the left side. For this, I have used a very less amount of color. And you must have noticed that for drawing the painting, I have used a very minimal color palette. Basically, I've used three colors at most, which is the burnt umber, one CNI, and in dense blue for drawing these leaves. And at some places I've also used crimson red and cadmium red foil during the leaves, I am drawing some of them in a downward direction. And somehow recently, you again do according to your wish. As you can see, I'm using a round brush number eight from Sinaloa soft aquifer. And the colour which I am using is looking a little bit black and colored. The reason is that whenever we are the intense blue to one Sienna, we get that color very close to black. I always tried to avoid black color in direct forms. So I tried to mix this in dense blue with burnt sienna. And then in your play. Now adding a little bit of more redness by drawing some more leaves using cadmium drag. While drawing the tips of the leaves towards the end, I am using a Docker tune that is burnt sienna mixed with intense blue to show that those leaves are getting the sunlight in a very less amount. And this is the reason they are looking a little bit darker in color. For drawing stems. Now I'm trying a mixture of cadmium red mixed with a little bit of intense blue and been Sienna. I'm just making some small adjustments here and there. And at the same time connecting some of the stems to the original biggest stems. Now I'm using a bigger brush number four. With this, I will be doing some minute dense small leaves using the Musharraf cadmium red mixed with a little bit of intense blue. I will be using a little bit of red color for the areas which are close to the Sun. You can even use this red color for the stems which are away from the sun. As this will balance the painting and the painting would look more natural and beautiful. Rigor brushes are very helpful when it comes to the fine lines. They work very well if use the color in a thick foam. Now I'm mixing a darker color, that is the Musharraf intense blue with burnt umber. And we'll draw some thin lines. When drawing stems. I'm connecting some of them to their original biggest demes, but that's some portion. I leave those as untested because this also adds natural beauty to the paintings. Just a thing to be noted is that whenever we draw something close to the ground, we will make them look a little bit darker in color because those areas are getting less of the sunlight. As you can see on the screen, when I'm drawing these stems close to the ground, I'm making them a little bit darker in color using the mesure of intense blue mixed with one Dumbo. This also shows that those areas are getting less sunlight. It's time to add some red leaves for this. I've just added a little bit of cadmium red to the already existing mixture, and then I'm applying it. Now I think some small leaves on the left. Now I'm using a brush number eight, which is a round brush from Sinaloa soft Jaguar. I will use this brush to pick some of the color and we'll make the stems feed a letter. But everytime we will pick up the color, we will wash it so that we remove any extra pigment from it. And once it is done, we will use it again in the same way. Try to feed the leaves as well as the stems which are close to the sun. Once it is done, we will be adding a little bit of more details for which I am using cadmium red in a very dilute form. Now adding some more leaves using cadmium red. So this was the last adjustment fee are doing to this painting. I hope you have enjoyed this painting. So don't forget to give your reviews in the review section. And I see you in the next part. Thank you so much. 7. Final Thoughts: Hi guys, welcome back. We have completed our painting.
