1. Welcome to Class: Hi, my name is Trisha Romo and welcome to Marco is a seasons spring flowers. Flowers are one of my favorite things to paint. They are great for any skill level all the way from the beginner to advanced. In this class, we will be painting some really easy relaxing leaves. They are my go-to when I don't know what I want to pay, but I need to sit down and do something. I will paint a page of leaves. And then we're going to be painting three different flowers that we're going to put all together into our final project, the Spring floral race, watercolor and brings me so much joy. And I hope that you guys enjoyed this class as much as I enjoy teaching it. Please share your projects in the gallery as you go. I would love to see your progress throughout the class. Thank you for joining me for this class. I had so much fun filming it and I really hope that I can fill more in this series, watercolors, the seasons. 2. Class Supplies : Okay guys, onto the supplies that you're going to need for this class, I'm going to share with you what I use, but I really want to encourage you to use what you have on hand. Just try and pick similar colors in your watercolors. You don't have to use the exact same brand that I use or the exact same paper that I use even. This is all about just playing with your own supplies and enjoying the process. But first I'm going to start with the paper pads that I use a lot. Especially for this class, I highly suggest using at least a 140 pound paper that is going to be heavy enough to withstand the water that we're going to be using in this class. It holds up really, really nicely. It doesn't have to be the Strathmore brand. You can go and get this Canson watercolor paper is really great. I usually try to buy a couple of these, especially if they're on sale at the art store, because I just like to practice in these a lot. So I really, really highly suggest maybe the excel. And then this is also a, another nice one. I use cold press most of the time. It just has a little bit more texture. You can actually see the texture on the cover here that's similar to the, the texture of the actual paper a little bit. I like to have a tiny bit of texture, but not too much. So just, just a little bit going. And so I use this a lot for the practices like the in the lessons to come when we're painting our pages of flowers. I've used this a few times just to paint pages of flowers. This is a great practice book. And then for the final project, I have this B company, professional series paper. It is also a 140 pound cold press watercolor paper. I like the B paper, it's not too bad. It is very messy grainy. You can really see the texture, so it has a lot of texture on it. If you don't like that texture, I might go for like a hot press paper because it's going to be a little bit smoother. But this is what we're gonna be doing our final project on. And I'm using the 11 by 15 size for that project. But for all of our practicing, just a 7 by 10, or even if you want to go smaller, the six by nine works well too. Now, onto the watercolors, I have two paints that I used from Winsor and Newton. And they are one of my favorites to use, but I've tried, I don't know if you're an artist or if you love art supplies, you play, tried them all. And I have dried a ton of different ones. Daniel Smith, I love those. Da Vinci paints are gorgeous. I have a pan of Da Vinci paints that I love. So I would say, go for the paints that you love. The Winsor and Newton are really gray. I started with the Winsor Newton Cotman set when I first started water coloring, it was a nice, cheap option for me to get into it. And then once I realized I loved it, I decided to go up and get that grade two pates. But these are the ones that I'm going to be using. The colors that I'm going to use in this class are Winsor, red, opera rose, Winsor yellow, yellow ocher, sap, green, all is green, and then fringe, ultramarine. And then I guess I do use a little bit of burnt umber. So try and make sure you have some similar colors on hand. Like I said, they don't have to be the exact ones that I'm using. I want you to use what you own Xt with brushes. Again, I want you to use what you have, but I would highly suggest having at least a round brush because the type of strokes that we're going to be doing in this class, you're going to need around a tip. You can use either a size six or a size eight. I kinda switch between the two and I like both sizes. You're also going to need just a glass for her water, dirty water for painting. And I always just buy a cheap rag from the store. And then I use this to blot my paint on. So that's all you're going to need for this class. I can't wait for you to get started. See you in the next lesson. 3. Painting Leaves : Hello and welcome to the leaves lesson. Leaves are one of my absolute favorite things to paint. I just find them so relaxing. Anything nature related, I love painting. If I'm in the mood to watercolour and I don't know what I'm gonna pay. I always turn to leave. So today I'm going to show you how to paint some leaves for your final project to First, let's talk about the colors that we're gonna be using to do our leaves. I like to do multi-dimensional paintings with lots of different colors. I like to drop in colors to get these really gorgeous little affects here in there. Because when you go out into nature and you look at a leaf in nature, it's not usually just one flat color. There's usually some little bits of brown, some darker green where the shadows are. So thats kinda what we're gonna focus on today. So the first color that we are going to be using is called sap green to beautiful, bright green. It is one of my go-to colors. You can mix in a little bit of ultramarine blue and make it darker. And you can put more water to make it lighter. And you could just get so many beautiful shades out of this one color. Then next color I'm going to use is all as green. And this is another gorgeous kind of a natural green that you would see a lot in nature, as you can see in the olive green has a little bit more of a brown undertone, little more warm looking, and this one's definitely a little more cool. So we've got kind of a cool green and warm green for our leaves. And next color that I absolutely love using when I do leaves is this yellow ochre. And it's just such a gorgeous, gorgeous color. It's very nice and warm. I silicates color you might see in nature more often. So I like to just drop this into my leaves, gives them just a little more interest and keeps them from looking so flat. Now let's talk a little bit about our brush stroke. We are going to be taking our rounded brush and just slightly laying the tip down on our paper and then pressing lightly and pulling back as we do so, so your brush stroke is going to look like this. You can start at a little bit of a 45-degree angle. I like to hold my brush right around the middle. And you're going to lay down the tip of your brush. And then you're going to gently press to really extend all these bristles, See how it extends out. And then you're gonna lift as you finish your stroke. So you're kinda, we're gonna get a skinny edge on each end and it's going to get fatter or in the middle. So let's do that again. So go ahead and practice this a few more times on your page. You get used to the feel and the amount of water that you wanna use. So after practicing our brushstrokes to build our leaf, you're just going to take your Sap Green. And we're gonna use our brushstroke that we just learned. And we're going to do one little all men shape on one side. Then takes a more of your green, Get a little more pigment if you want. And we're kinda gonna meet at the top where we started, pull back and the same brush stroke. And you have elif. I always like to leave a little bit of white in the middle of my leaves with watercolor. Whenever you need to leave a highlight, you, that's going to be the absence of pigment. So you're going to try and let the White Paper show through. And so I always like the middle of my leaves to have a little bit of a highlight here in there. Sometimes I wind up filling it in as I drop another color, but it helps them not look so flat. And this little guy here is usually winds up becoming a stem that connects down to this, the stem of the branch, or going behind the flower wherever I want it to go. While your leaf is still wet, let's drop in some of this yellow ochre over here. And I just kind of get it and just drop it in wherever. I'm just kinda play around was where I want that color to be. And I let the water color do its magic. I let the water carry the color wherever it's going to wind up in the end. So if we're looking at our leaves and we're thinking about, okay, the sun is probably on this side of our page. Then we want to keep more light on the left side of our leaf and dark on the right side of our leaf. Let's do another little leaf here. Let's continue on with this branch. So I'm gonna do another leaf down here, just like that. And I'm gonna drop it a little bit of my ocher on the light side, but then I'm going to take this darker olive green and drop this in on the shadowed side. So when the sun hits the side of our leaf is going to be a little lighter and the shadow side is going to be a little darker. Bats and then drop in a little bit of our ochre, and then a little bit of our dark, darker olive green. Let's mix together a little bit the sap in the olive. And let's do our stem. When I do a stem, I usually hold my brush a lot further down so I can get more control. So when you're painting, if you're holding up here, you're getting a more loose look to your painting. And if you holding down here, this is when you want more control. So too do my stem. I'm just gonna start here and just do a line. Doesn't have to be perfect. But try and keep it as skinny as you possibly can by really gripping down near your bristles so you can get a lot of control and your line that'll help you get a really nice thin line. Again. Now, if you wanna get some lighter, we like these leaves in the background. Anything in the foreground is going to be dark. Anything in the background is going to be a little bit later, just add more water. So we're going to really water this down. And then we're just going to add some leaves in the background. Okay, those are our leaves. I would love for you guys to sit and just paint leaves on a page. Just play around with adding in different colors to get these beautiful blooms of the yellow ochre in your Sap Green and you're all of green. And just play around with making lighter leaves and darker Lee and make sure you share your project has gallery, I would love to see your page of leaves. I love looking at them just as much as I love to paint them. In our next lesson, we are going to be painting silk flowers, so get ready. 4. Daffodils : In the next three lessons, we're going to start painting are flowers that are gonna make up the bulk of our spring floral reads. The first flowers and I'm gonna pay was he right now is our daffodil. I like to keep my flowers kind of loose and not exactly like when a daffodil might look like. I just want you to see it and imagine that that's the flower that it is. So for this lesson, you're going to need a pencil. I would find a cup or glass that you can use. This is just going to help us see the circle and size of our flour. And then we're going to be using a windsor yellow and then our yellow ochre paints to help us get the shape of our daffodil, right? We're gonna take our glass, set it down on our paper, and then we're just going to lightly trace a circle around the outside of the glass. Now, in the final project, when I paint these, I don't use a circle, but this is just to help you be able to see where to place your petals. The first thing I do when I paint my daffodil is I start out with a little bit of yellow ochre and I paint a little bit wiggly look in circle in the middle, there, middle part of the flower is kind of uneven. It's not like a perfect circle. So I start off with that and then just slightly fill it in, trying to leave the outside edges a little bit darker than the n-side. Next, when you think about your flower, we're gonna do six petals. And the hardest thing that I had when I first started painting flowers was kinda spacing out my petals correctly so that they didn't look crowded or not look like the flower I wanted because there's swore enough petals. So we're going to start off by painting our first pedal at the top here. It's just gonna taper in from the outside and kind of like a little bit of a pedal shape like that. And usually what I do is I turn my paper completely around so that I can get another petal almost directly on the other side of that first petal. Now we've done two pedals and we have four left. So I term paper on this side and I sit in to more petals over here. And then I just kind of move my paper again and I fit tumor petals over here. So there is the basic shape of our daffodil. Like I said in the final project, I'm not going to be using pencil or drawing a circle. This is just to help you practice getting that shape in there. So next we're going to paint in our pedals and I use that same stroke that I used for our leaf lesson. And I just kinda start from the outside and go in. And then from this side and go in. And I tend to leave a little bit of white space in the middle if I can, or off to the sides so that we have that natural highlight. I like to turn my paper whenever I'm painting. You don't have to do that, but I think it helps me with getting a nice stroke. So I'm gonna go from the outside, in the outside in kinda leaving a little bit of white and filling that in slightly. Now after you're done painting all your petals, I like to take some of that yellow ochre and just drop it in here and there. And let it flows through the wet watercolor and makes sure that your petals are still slightly wet so that you can just let it naturally move around. And that's just going to hit that there's some shadow dimension and different colors in our flow. Once you feel comfortable doing your deaf adults with your pencil guidelines, try doing a few without any pencil at all. I promise it's not that hard. Once you've practiced to view. I always start in the middle, do my first petal, and then in order to get my petals to line up around the edges, I just take my paintbrush and carry it around to the next start and then go ahead and paint my next pedal. I would love to see your progress. Make sure you upload in the project gallery, and I'll see you in the next lesson. 5. Peony: For our next flour, we're going to do it very loose kind of Peony looking. Could be a rose, Could be a peony. Like I said, I liked me flowers to be really, really loose. And so that's what we're gonna do next. We're going to use up from Rose, which is just a really, really gorgeous pink. But just use any kinda pink or even red. If you want to get this beautiful soft pedal around your flower, you're going to start out was more pigment in the middle. And then we're going to wind up pretty much only using water after that. So to start off, we're going to put a little bit of like a half moon shape and then like a few dots that is the center of our flour. We're going to clean off our brush, just leaving no pigment, only water. And then we're gonna take that little bit of pigment and pull it out into our first set of pedals. Now, if you want to, you can add a little more pigment in while it's still wet and just let that slow out. Oh, I just love although it looks when it does that. And then take a little bit more and just do some very light shapes kinda going in a little bit of a circle around your center point. And that is our flour. I'm going to actually drop in more pigment because I like the center to be nice and dark liquid when it kinda does this when it dries, looks so pretty, such as dropping little dark bits of pigment here and there, and that is your flower. It, let's do one more. I'm sorry if you can see a shadow or hear a noise. My cat is like right here, I'm actually surprised He's not walking in front of the camera right now because he usually likes to get straight on my artwork. So let's do another little half. Prego too much water. So I'm just gonna make sure I add more pigment. And then just like little gist, I call him a blob, is a little blob in the center of your flour and then clean off most of your pigment and then take it and pull some of that out. It's just so pretty how it does that. And we're just gonna do that all the way around. And then add some outer pedals. Make sure you leave some whitespace because that's just going to hint that there's a little bit of a highlight. There. They go. There's some white in there and then I'm going to drop in a little more pigment, straight in the middle. So that is going to be our second flower for our project. Do a full page of these. They are so much fun, they're so easy and I just love watching the watercolor flow out from the center. Can't wait to see what you do. 6. Periwinkle: For our last flower, we are going to be painting a periwinkle. So you're going to need French ultramarine blue and that's it. A loved painting, these flowers, they're so easy and it's still going to be a nice, loose interpretation. So first off, start off with some pigment straight from your palette. That way you can get as much pigment as possible on the end of your brush. So it's going to look kinda like that. And then periwinkle flowers have five petals, so we're going to start out with five dots of pigment. So keep them fairly close but don't let them touch. So you've got 2345, so there's our five dots. Now, you're going to clean off your brush and just have it be filled with a little bit of water but no pigment on it. Because what we're gonna do is we're going to pull out the pigment that we just laid down into our pedal. So take your brush, start from the dot of payment that you just lit place and pull it out. And then pull it out again. And you're gonna make a little bit of a round pedal. Now, while it's still wet like this, I like to have depicted over here and I like to just drop in more color. So I can get a really like multi-dimensional looking pedal. So that's one petal and we're gonna do that five tests. So if you need to turn your page, go ahead and turn to page and do that over here. It's okay if they touch, but I kinda like my not to touch too much because then it becomes little more of a blob. So try not to have them touch too much. And if you need to round off, sometimes, Get away from me. Go ahead and round off the ends. And we're going to take it again and do another pedal. Internet again. Do another one. And then got one left here. And then we're just gonna go like that. Now, it looks a little too perfect for me. So what I'm gonna do is take a little more of my color on the end of my brush. And I'm just going to drop it into darkness center and kinda get rid of the perfect lines that we have going into the center. So sorry, go that is our periwinkle. And if you want to, you can round off the ends. Sometimes they don't run them as well when I'm actually painting, but afterwards you just add a little water toothbrush, can round off the ends. You can drop in more color, you can drop in a different color. We could drop in a little bit of that. Offer rows if we wanted to. And just make really fun. Beautiful flower, I would love to see your periwinkle flowers. Please upload them to the gallery. And in the next lesson we are going to start our final project. 7. Final Project Part One: Okay guys, it is time for our final project are springing up floral radius. This is what we are going to be painting. So you're going to need the paper that you chose to be your final project on. We're also going to need a bowl, pretty large bowls that you read this a too small. So to get started, go ahead and put your bowl down on your paper where you want to have your wreath b. And we're going to draw a very light line. You don't want to be too dark. It shows kind of a guideline such you can keep your flowers in a nice circle. But we don't want to be able to really see that line through our watercolor. If you need to, you can erase some of the darker parts just slightly so that they don't show through on your final project. When I start a project like this and I know I'm gonna be using certain colors a lot. I'd like to just go ahead and wet them and trying to get on my paper and just missed the pay paint going. The first flower that we are going to paint is our daffodil. And we're gonna do three of those. And I'm kinda doing them off to the side. So I would just start I start with this one and then move out to those two. So find a good spot on your circle. You can barely see my circle. I erased most of it, but it's still kind of there. And go ahead and start painting the daffodil. So let's start with the middle of our flower, which is nice little wiggly circle. And then I'm going to start painting the petals fall. Okay, now that we have painted our daffodil and it's nice and wet. Take some of your yellow ochre and just go ahead and drop it in there. Just to give it a little beetle shadow. And if you do see into your pencil mark, I can see a little pencil right here. And if you guys can see it, I'm going to drop a little bit right there so that it darkens that spot and your ability, the pencil on the final project. And we can always start in our center a little bit too. I've, I might go back after it's dried to dark in the center just a tiny bit, MR. Now, I'm going to do I'm just going to fix this. I'll make a little more pointy. I'm gonna do two more of these. Daffodil is one here and then one right here. Okay? Now you have finished your three main focal point flowers which are defiles. In the next lesson, we're going to put in our filler flowers. 8. Final Project Part Two: Now it is time to put in our filler flowers. These are the smaller flowers that are going to fill in a little spaces around our main focal point, which are the daffodil. So right now I'm going to work on our PNAS. I did three of those as well. I think that things look better in odd numbers. So we've got three pennies, three daffodil, and then I did five of our blue flowers. So I'm going to go ahead and do these. I decide to put one here, one here, and one there. So right above this daffodil, take some of your pink and do your little like half circle below her flower blob. And then I'm gonna take some clean while I've got two waters here and I'm gonna take some of this clean water and then go ahead and start bringing out the pigment into my peony. I'm going to add more as I go. Sometimes if it's starting to look a little too blobby and not really like a flower. Adding some more dark to this center can really help define that center point. And then you can bring some of that around the outside. So we're gonna do that flower two more times, one in this area and one right here. Now that we have our pink flowers, we're going to start filling in some of this open space with these smaller blue flowers. I made my pink Florida a little big on this one. But that's okay. I think every time you do this, it's going to look a little different. So let's go ahead and start with our blue flowers and put one above that pink one. I'm gonna put it a little over to the side because I want to make sure that I'm staying with this circle that I have here. If you start to go too far off, the circle is not going to look like a reasoning more. So you wanna make it look like the flowers are part of the reason that they are attached to your wreath. So I'm gonna put a blue flower here. So now that we've gotten one there, I'm going to do my other four. Nestle those in around the rest of our flowers down here. So I'm gonna put one just about here. One I think here on this one. And then one right here and then another one down here. Okay? Now you can go back in and if you want to fix any of the shapes of your pedals or fixed where they're going somewhere going behind the other flowers, some are going on top of our other flowers. You kinda get to decide where you want them to go. So go back in and refind any of the the flowers that maybe you're not totally happy with this one. I'm just feeling like I need to add some more color to it. And now in the next part of our floral wreath, we are going to start adding in our leaves and her little stems of leaps. 9. Final Project Part Three: At this point, I went ahead and refill my water so they have fresh water community moving to my greens. We are going to start with our sap green. And we're going to start with these leaves up here in the corner. So first thing I'm gonna do is put in all these leaves that are attached to our blue flowers. I'm going to say that these go with those flowers. That way when you start your leaf, you can kind of start on the outside and taper in towards your blue flowers. Be careful because your blue flowers might still be wet. If you want to wait and let your blue for hours drive first. I am I would highly recommend that if you are afraid that it might bleed. So you guys know me. I like to turn my page so I'm going to be turning my paper around. And also be careful not to lay your hand down on everything that you've already done so you don't smear anything. But I'm going to put my first two leaves right here. And I'm just using that same stroke that I taught you guys earlier. Now we're gonna take a little bit of my yellow ocher. Drop that. It's wet. There you go. There's our first set of leaves. Now I'm going to do that for each blue flower on our reefs. When you're thinking about where to place your flowers, I really, I like to turn my page so I can get a good brush stroke, but I also like to turn my page because it gives me a different perspective on how everything is being laid out. So from this angle, I can see that I have two leaves kinda facing up and maybe I want some leaves facing down as well. So I kinda filled in this space here with those leaves, but this blue flower. And when he turned it back around, I think that I'm going to go with some leaves facing down over here as well. I'm going to turn my paper back around and go ahead and put in these. Now at this point we can start thinking about how we want to fill in some of these blank spaces along our wreath. I really would like to fill in this area, maybe this area, something into this little whitespace. So take a look at how you've been laying things out as CPM and a little sections that can use a little bit of color. We're going to add in our berries at the end. But let's think about these small stems that are going to give us some movement. So if our wreath is going in a circle, we want most of these small stands, as you can tell, I had them moving up towards the circle and you start going out and a little too crazy with them. It will distract your eye, but this way it's just making everything flow into a circle. So let's think about putting a stem here that goes up, a stem here that goes up. Maybe a very small one kind of coming out right here. It's not going to come out straight or very far. It's just gonna kinda go very short right there. Maybe one right here, and then another one going right here. So that's flowing with our circle. To come up with this kind of a lighter green color, we're going. Take some of our sap green here. And then we're just going to mix in a little bit of our yellow ocher. Maybe a little more to get it. A little more of that light yellowy green, almost like a brown green. And now we're going to start putting in our little sprigs as you want to, as you call them. So I'm going to put one here. I always start at the top of my Sprague and just do a very small leaf, the top. And then I usually do my leaves first. So I've got to leave here. At least. They're just gonna keep going down this imaginary line and imagining that there's a line going here. If you'd like to draw your line in ahead of time, you can. I always like to connect my line at the end, but that's totally up to you. Now we're going to connect. I always start at the top and member really get down low on your brush if you need that control. And you are be in line all the way until it would probably disappear behind the flower. And then we're gonna connect these little leaves to our main stem. This is kind of, one of my favorite things to do is just make these little branches of leaves. So now let's go ahead and fill in the rest of our wreath. So now that I'm kind of looking at my wreath overall, I notice some spots that are going to need some attention. Probably right here, I've left quite a big white spot. So what I could do is I can either leave that open because you are going to be able to see some of the wood from the race through. So I could just make that to where you see some wood coming through. I could add a leaf there or some berries. I think I'm actually going to leave it for now because I want to have this show through. The branches show through. So now we're going to go in and we're going to do our little berries. Berries are so fun. There are a lot like our stem of leaves. So you're going to start with your top theory and just do little ones all the way down and then connect them with a stem. Make sure that when you do them, you do leave a little bit of a white spot and that's going to be your highlights. So I'm going to use a Winsor and Newton red for my berries. Just want them to be really different. I kinda want them to stand out, add a little more depth and darkness to our wreath. Now that I have made berries in, I'm just gonna take a little brown. Let's see. I think I'm just going to take some burnt umber from my palette. And I'm going to use that to make my stem. I'm just going to start at the top, very, pull it down, and then just connect very lightly. I think it's okay if some of the brown bleeds into your red skin look really nice. And P D. Now we're nearing the end of our floral wreath. I've made this one a lot more full than I made this fun, and I love that. I love how they look different every time you paint them. I'm going to take that same burnt umber and now we're going to start working on our branches. So this, again, it's just going to be a very light stroke, a lot like the stems that you added to your leaves and your berries. If you need to get down on your brush to get down here and just really lightly do your branches going around. So I'm gonna do one for you real quick. I'm kind of following that pencil line, but not exactly because if you notice in here, I've got brand, I've got more than one branch, so it's not all going to follow that pencil line. So let's just start here. This is always a little scary for a second. Just kind of go for it. Very lightly C. And now what you're gonna do is you're going to follow that through where it would show. So in-between all of your flowers, just trying keep going in that same circle that you started. And if you think it's going to show through, go ahead and show it. And I'm gonna say that it's going a little behind this, like that. And so now we're going to do that several more times to give us just this really pretty branch effect. And then if you do end up getting a little something, just take some clear water and wet it, and then take your rag. Then we can kind of delete a little bit of that color that I drips. There we go. Now let's do a few more of those brown lines. Now we're just about done with our wreath. So what I'm going to do, my very last step is I'm going to take a little bit of Payne's gray and just add these little dots in my blue flower. Okay, guys, there you go. There is your spring of floral wreath. I hope you guys enjoyed painting this with me. I would love to see your final projects, make sure that you share them in the gallery. And then I would also suggest maybe going and looking for some hand lettering classes at skillshare offers. So maybe you can put a nice quote in the middle of this or something like that. I'd love to see what you guys do. Thank you so much for joining me for this class. I can't wait to teach another one, and I will see you next time. Bye.
