Let's paint together and create all these art works together. 2. Fun watercolour practice : Hi everybody and welcome to the very first tutorial of discourse. So jump in with our brush and watercolor palettes on our paper in front of us today we are going to have fun just getting our hands warm up for all the tutorials that are coming. So have a look at my hand, of course, with our cerulean blue here. I'm going to start the first layer. I'm going to tell you a few different ways of having fun with your colors. How to understand your colors, how to mix them. This is only to get yourself familiar with your brushes. How much water you need to use for each time that you use. Actually meet mix the colors. And when you beaks, when it's going to be correct, when is wrong. This is actually a very great tutorial for practice. So even if you are at advanced or intermediate, you don't actually have to go through these lessons. However, I advise every bond to get yourself familiar with your colors. And especially if you're actually color set is a new one and you're not familiar with the colors. Because what you see on the, for instance here, on the left side, those are not going to be like the colors that we have and how they're going to look like because watercolor fades so fast, the colors usually gets lighter when you apply them on your paper. One thing before I forget, you do have access to all the information, what brushes and papers we are using on our downloadable resources, projects, and assignments. So when you go through them, you get your you will see all those information. At the same time. We have combined two, so far, two colors. One lighter blue and darker blue. So now we're going to move towards the yellow one. Especially when you're moving from blue to yellow, make sure that you actually clean your brush. And if you have gone through my other watercolor courses, you know that my signature technique is to clean your brush, wipe it with your tissue. Usually use a perfect tissues such as clean kitchen and tower, or a few layers of tissue so they don't break easily. And then you fade the colors. This is a signature technique that I'm going to use throughout the whole discourse. You will see it later. Now, you are saying that when you use such a small round brush, how the colors gets mixed together. I'm just showing you the colors that we have here, getting yourself familiar with the names and how to mix them. Because here you can see like the mixtures of different colors, two colors, three colors I'm going to mix. And also how to or leave highlights in-between how to create different feelings. For instance, here you see like a darker color. So you need to actually, what I did right now, exactly our signature technique. After I apply the first layer, I cleaned it with the water cup that I have next to me. Quickly use my tissue and then fade the outlines of the color. So have a look. These are not really advanced layer of fading colors. This is only to get yourself familiar with the what's coming up to warm up your hands and get yourself familiar with the colors. So we are moving forward. We kept my hand. I keep like, if you need to add more water and to tell me about your colored references so I can guide you better because I'm not sure what brand that you have. Any brand that you have at the same time, that will be fine. Don't worry about it. Don't limit yourself or having a very not famous brand. For instance, if you don't have schmidt, the brand is fine. That's like very expensive, that maybe I won't go towards it as well. Or if you have it, that's fine as well. So any actually color set that you have, we can go through them because the reference that I asked you to actually create will help you to get advanced idea. Move forward faster with the colors in front of you because you will instantly know which color to use. Now look at my hand. I'm just trying to understand the colors, two colors that compliment each other. They're really close to each other. You can my hamburger, I'm still going through different ones. Mixing them. Another point that you need to practice here is like how to mix color on your palate, not straight from the actual color set. So I just combine two colors. So it can be one purple wireless color, and then bring it here, practice this one and understand the color combination that you are doing. One more point that is important like how much water you're using. This is much more water that I'm using here than the previous square root that I did. And have a look at them how different they are just by using more water. So now I'm layering are put into layers. So another practice, you don't exactly have to use these colors. It's good that you realize and find out these colors that I'm using. So forget the names that I'm bringing here. Just tried to find it very, very similar ones that are close to your brand. If you have any confusion, please do mess. Message me. I'm always online to answer your questions and receive your projects. So we do have like, I do have lots of watercolor courses. If you have signed up, you can actually watch those. So do ask me about them so I can send you the link. You can watch more videos event. I keep cleaning then using my because I'm not showing the tissue, but every time I'm actually using it on the water, I bring it forward. And clinically the tissue, these two colors are really tricky to actually combine. Yellow and actually green, because when they get really close to each other, it can be either very beautiful or a disaster. So the way you actually, you practice combining them and get rid of the middle line is such a good practice. Making sure we do have a lot of challenge and mixing colors in this practice. So one more thing that I want to tell you, it just, I do have all the outlines of the next tutorials available for you to download. So either you draw from them or print them, or actually, if you want sometime to trace them, that will be fine. Because for the watercolor, you need to get yourself familiar with the techniques. Then you will start getting yourself more familiar with the drawing parts so that there is a reason I have made all the outlines available for you so you won't have any problem in the middle of the process. So in-between, I'm really careful using more water and then using the tissue to fade in between. Now I'm going through different colors, colors, combination. Let's see the next one, how it's kinda looks like. Now. I just added a little yellow. But I was like, This is not the color I want to use, maybe a little part of it I want to use so how we can actually go on it. So have a look at my hand woven. So in this course, as I mentioned, we do have lots of practices which are going to be from beginner to very advanced level. Even though your intermediate or advanced level. If you don't mind, I would like to ask you to go through the beginner, like lessens the few beginner lessons as well. So maybe you get familiar with my own techniques as well that I'm using. So maybe there are a lot of tips or tricks there. We could do it because we're going to, in the next few tutorials, we're going to cover all the simple techniques that exist in watercolor. But what's really important for me is to how to apply them. Because I have seen lots of watercolor courses, a lot of amazing instructors that actually I create them, but it only covers techniques. They don't really go and apply it on actual real paintings or big paintings that you can add can actually become syllable later for you. We do have a lot of paintings here that if you draw them, you can easily either give them as a gift or actually sell them on Etsy or different online platforms. So there are paintings that can maybe create a career path for you. That's usually my goal during most of my courses, either this one or the pencil or colored pencil or even digital courses that I do. I keep asking my students to look at this, not just as a hobby. Maybe you can earn and passive income from it. Because you create them. You are having fun. But why not just putting it online for cell, it's just fun to do it. So I'm just combining two different colors. First, this is almost like the square, the first square v d, but different with different colors. So I get myself familiar with the blue colors. Now, cleaning the brush. Using different combination onto the palette. More pinkish and more reddish color. Now let's go here. Names that I'm using their family or as wins, Windsor and Newton brand. However, I will use different brands on this one, but those are the color reference I'm telling you because they are really close to any other colors that you're using. So if you add any color questions, do ask me. One thing I would like to ask you because I see that, especially I'm just talking to the beginner students here. When it comes to my other courses, especially pencil wants a lot of my students that they just start at the course. They don't really respect the outlines. So it means they don't care about the outlines, they go out of it and they don't stay within. This outline can be actually be called, as I'm drawing outlines, the eyelids, those are my outlines or Odysseus graph lines. Please do pay attention to your outlines because even as a practice, I go around but when it comes to I, they're doing. I'm not saying because these are very realistic paintings that I'm going through. So you need to pay attention to the outliers to stay within. Otherwise, it's going to look messy. So this is something that I really wanted to ask a lot of my exists in the students if they are going through the neocortex with me right now. So I need to, every time I receive assignments from you, I need to mention this point. So I've had maybe I'll take the chance. And the first lesson that we are going through and I asked you that it will be great that you pay attention to the outlines. So for instance, if we are having lots of different real paintings were big paintings in this course, we do have some outlines that in the future you need to stay within. So it's a good practice from the very beginning, you care about those facts, those details. Now I'm adding the second layer menu or practicing. I'm just going for what, having fun with my colors. Not just making sure it's absolutely like crazily, realistic than just getting yourself to read, getting your fear away and a star using your brush and colors. This is the whole point of this lesson. I really look forward to see your practices like this because it is very fun when you not just follow these colors, but I'll follow the colors that you have combined. All of them, mix them, and use the technique that I told you every time, clean your brush with the water, and then use the t-shirt that I'm doing now. Then go on it here and get away from the the main outlines. So use different colors and combine them. And then maybe write it down which color that you have used so you can use them as a reference later. But when it comes to this practice, it will be amazing that if he could, I'm combine different colors. So want one layer, two layer, three layers. So when it comes to that certain color, you understand if you have three layers of that color or four layers of that color, how it's gonna look like. So a combination of the first layer and the first layer. It's actually a very good example that you need to practice. Now, I did the same technique at that first layer, clean my brush with both water and tissue, and then moved on. Even though I have techniques introduction in this course, but my other watercolor courses that I do have a few of them. Some of them, I don't have any beginner introduction on them because even though I'm going to teach you step-by-step all the actually tips and hacks and how to use masks, how to use tape, how to use salt, and so many different facts or tips on delay. But I don't usually like just only going through the techniques. So this is one of those courses that has some technique, phase techniques. But if you want to actually take this seriously and have it as your career path. My other courses really not going to focus on just telling you that thickness, but actually it's like swimming. Just jump onto the water and learn how to swim. So they actually going to cover so many different paintings instead of the techniques. Here we do have, of course, different pregnant, but those courses, they have more event paintings. So but different themes, different concepts. So it will be great that you can check them out and see which one you love to learn. And asked me how you can get them. Now I'm teaching myself about different green that I have two different blues. So even though sometimes we use the same color but combination of two different colors. And it will be fun to actually understand too. Because when you put two colors next to each other, he said, Oh, this is a good one. This is the one that I'm going to use. So we don't want to just follow references at some point. We want to get creative, right? So it's really amazing that you understand the colors. I'm not saying go through the whole color theory. I don't have a color theory if you want to understand how the color is actually works with each other, is a complete course. However, you need to understand it on your own as well and play with it. So this is only coming with practice and experience. Now moving towards some orange colors that we have. Cadmium orange is one of my favorites colors that I use. Some greens such as Sap Green or different greens that I'm going to introduce you throughout the course. Those are actually a lot of them, my favorite ones that I use and they're very useful. One thing that I care is like, I don't use lots of color in one, in one go. For instance, even though the painting going to have lots of colors, but I'll try to stay within a certain amount of colors. This is actually going to be the only tutorial Datalog has this amount of colors that being mixed with the shutter. And I'm telling you about, but the next one is, don't worry if your paintings, if you're a watercolor set, is limited because I'm not going to use this amount of color in one go. So do not limit yourself with your tools and watercolor set. One more thing that I would like to let you guys know is about the GSM, about the thickness of the paper. Usually I prefer to get either 250 or 300 GSM depth thickness. Because the thicker the paper is, the less it pops out while you are doing the watercolor because it is so easy to actually, your watercolor doesn't stay well on your paper, so do get very good quality was. So for instance, if you get one booklet, for instance, I do get some of them from Cass Art in London, but we do have similar ones on Amazon or different art law calls. You can go on them and even asked me before purchasing them, that would be amazing. If you could show me which one you want to get or which one you already have. So I say, this is the reason because I gave you an example of one of my pencil courses that has charcoal in it. A lot of my student asked me why our charcoal pencil doesn't look like your content pencil. We have the same. So I said, What do you have? They say we do have charcoal or charcoal medium. I say, well, I'm using container pencil that is very hard. So if you actually go through the medium steam, the materials that I actually added onto your assignments, you'll see that this is not the same. Maybe that's why it's not coming out the same way that we are going through. So sometimes certain product that I tell you, it's not just any connection with them, it just from experience, unlock the product. So whenever I like something, I said that this is a good one. Let's use it together. So this means there are some certain watercolor sets that they are much cheaper and there are some much more expensive. If you have any of them already exist in one, please do ask me so I can guide you is these are the good ones. Keep adding them. One thing that I'm doing here, this is another great practice. After a while, get yourself away from what two colors mix and add a B24 colors together. And see the feelings, see how they're going to look like. And are they going to mix well together because sometimes you add to cart, add too much water, sometimes you add less water and they are really not go well together. Such as the green was very good here. The second one had too much water, and the third one good. First one doesn't go well with the first green. So you have to understand, even though I'm mixing it and I'm getting a faded colors in-between. Still. The colors don't go well together. When you do these practice, it will completely teach you what colors they actually go well together. Which one they don't. Cleaning my brush and using the tissue. One, another tip before we actually go through the rest of the colors here. Guys, one thing that I really want to ask you, change the water every time that you are starting or have few cops next to you. Because when you keep changing them, the pigments of their colors gonna stay there. And it means like you're going to bring those pigments to the next color. So make sure that if you're doing a very serious painting, you're actually pay attention to these details. As for the brushes, I usually use few different brushes. So I know that some watercolor brushes can be expensive. But one to four brush that you buy that and that's enough. You don't even need to have more than four brushes for some of the paintings that are good for. If you get them in good-quality. This one I am going to insist onetime good-quality and you take care of them and use them the way I'm using them with the same hand woven so you don't add so much pressure on them. You don't move them in a way that's going to hurt Stills part. You can use them for a really long time. So it's an investment of creating really good paintings by having really good brushes. I usually use natural hair brushes. I'll make sure that they are like that. And really good quality dagger slash sort brushes. They are angled wise and this kind of round brushes that you can see. But I make sure that these brushes that are used, they are all good-quality whilst that I can use it for many years and I take care of them. I always wash them and dry them and making sure that I don't use them suddenly for another medium. For instance, if you do actually using, you have signed out to one or acrylic or oil painting courses and you say, okay, let's use the same brush. I had to realize you just, watercolor is such a delicate medium. Few good things about this medium is that it's fast medium. It's one of the fastest one comparing two pencils, colored pencil or oil and acrylic, even acrylic. I say that this is one of the fast medium that you can create an artwork within an hour. My paintings that I usually teach you guys and teach you how to do it usually goes between 45 minutes to maximum two hours. I usually don't go to 02 hours because I want you guys to finish a painting in one sitting and enjoy doing it. So I advise you for the same thing. We're almost done with this fun. And actually very first layer, first tutorial. We have a long way to go in this course. If you want to hit. Go through the next tutorial. So I'll see you in the next theatre or really soon if you want to have a rest and go through the next because we are going to go through all the techniques and how to apply them on a lot of paintings. So I hope you'll enjoy them. Take care of your brushes by a good paper, and I'll see you in the next tutorial for now. Bye bye. 3. How to apply watercolor techniques: Hi everyone, Welcome back to another tutorial. And in this lesson, I'm going to take you through all the techniques that you need to know, tips and hacks, watercolor. So let's see that how I'm going to use this spray first, we have a frank here. We are going to draw inside a frame. Have a look at my brush is called angle brush or actually it's called dagger brush. Either you can spray the surface, are actually evenly. You use your brush to go through the whole apart that you need to use wet on wet technique. So have a look. I start with a light blue such as maybe cerulean blue, who? You're gonna go. This is called color wash. So either you can do it straight on your model or actually use it on your palette if we are using different colors. Or you want to make sure that how much pigment you are bringing on your paper, you're going to use it such as like this. Look at my hand movements from right to left or left to right. You can do this, but you have to do it evenly. This is a very important practice, even though it might seem easy. But sometimes it's not because the amount of light colors use water your brain, and mix your water, how you clean it. Which I'm going to teach you a lot of good techniques such as like clean your brush. You use your tissue and then to dry day and then fade the colors. Now, we're going to use olive green. This is like wet on dry, as you can see. Look at this. Now. I want to fight the color. This is very important technique guys. That how you actually is called fading techniques. Or you can blur the line. So look how I'm actually fading. I'm going to use this so many times in most of the artworks that paint is we're going to use. So practicing this from very dark color to very light parts and how you fade it in order to avoid any line in-between any stairs and unwanted line, we have to use this amazing technique. Now to clean your brush all the time. Every time that you are going to use a new color. Look at this spray, how I'm going to go through a lot of times I cover some parts that I want to spray it with my hand, clean it, and then evenly spread the water around your surface. Since we don't need the other parts together, read, make sure you cover it completely with your hand. And we do this so many times with in other examples that you will see through this course. Now, look at my handlebars, how I'm going to use this olive green. This is completely wet on wet. Even though the first one was wet on wet, but this one that one was water wash, so everything is evenly but this is the the main wet on wet on wet technique. See how I'm using. I'm going to actually apply all these techniques such as wet on dry and wet on real examples. So you just don't learn the technique itself, but you can learn how to actually implement all these techniques on your drawing. So wet-on-dry, how we can use it. The paper needs to be completely dry. We soak the brush and it completely watery color we do with our painting. Use this technique. You need to keep it as full of water when you are doing the wet-on-dry technique. Now let's go through the dry on dry technique. The paper needs to be completely dry, no wet. Water splash on it. Event. We don't need to put our brush onto the water. That's a difference because we need textures. We need to create some textures that you can see like look at the lines have you're using it. So not just textures but the wet on wet. Usually we use it at the very beginning of painting such as, for instance, all kind of background details. But dry on dry is going to be like very small certain details that we want to create, realistic or hyper-realistic paintings. We will go through all of them again in this course with different examples. So now let's go through the next one. Look at my hand woven. As it is still wet is start fading it. And then going to add another color onto it. Completely different one. To add. Now, using another one, we have to understand if the colors matches complex and complimentary colors, how you have to fade them in-between. We practice a lot of this in the previous tutorials. So you need to actually learn different colors and understand them and how to fight them with the main technique that you have learned already in the second example here. Now look at my hand movements. We're going to move towards the negative space. Technique. Very important one, very beautiful one. Usually use it around for drawing florals. Lover, many are doing it, so consider it for that kind of models that you have. Look at how you move your brush, especially for the pedals or for some, some leaves. It's quite important how to do, since we're going to do them later and apply down. Right now, you just need to practice. After you have applied a certain color, you need to fade it in order to create a dimension that Deb onto your model that you want to. Since you can see why it's called space, the negative space because the whiteness those areas made this beautiful lover to shape. Now going from the next one, since I'm adding different colors to get a special either for the sky or drawing ocean, sea, water, different stuff. So we can apply these techniques so many different places. However, there are different ways to create the highlight, the white highlights, either like this, ITV tissue or completed dry your brush and then create the Highlight. Have a look at my hand mobiles harm creating them. But your brush needs to we need to get the pigments out of it with cleaning it, using your tissue and then do it. So let's draw a leaf version. And then I'm going to show it to you how to do the vein for the leaves. Here. Again, the same technique. We kept my helmet nephron, the middle part. Now like this, practice this many times, try to practice it as much as you can. So in order for you guys to reach the point that you're happy with your highlights. Well, so at this technique is our very famous salt technique, the very first one that we're going to do. In order to create those highlights, you don't need to actually go through either tissue or just dry the brush and create those small highlights. So look at this. You can easily read your brush to do this. However, there are some more modern techniques in order to create the highlights effects. But this one is really great for clouds are certain different places brands and just imagine you want to paint some rocks are stones and you need that space to become white in the middle and read off the colors. That's how you can use them. There are many possibilities. Now let's look at these salt technique that I'm going to use. You won't see the effect right away. And depending on what kind of sea salt for instance you are using, bigger was create bigger effect. This is very small, is going to create much shiny small details. So look at the I poured it on this. You can, maybe, you cannot see properly. But after a few times you actually apply this technique, you will see it in few minutes how they're going to look like. So this boss, the dots, you will see them later. Moving on to the masking tape, masking technique, how are we going to use them? Of course, you need to have your masking brand, which any brand that you buy, this one would be fine, you don't have to worry yourself. However, how I'm going to use it. Have a look at my handlebars and how I'm going to apply it. First of all, I'm going to bring the right brushes and the tools that we need for this. Because you might need a brush that you don't use it for masking. But because your brush might be very expensive, you don't want to use your expensive brush for this one. Just in case it gets a little, I don't want to say ruined, but keep one brush for your masking. Now I'm going to wash off use of worship technique. Go through the whole area like the very first technique that we did. As you can see here, I've got my hand movies. We leave it dry, or you can use your hairdryer to dry it. You can do this at the very beginning to win. Your surface is wet, I'm sorry, white as well. But because I want you guys, I love these students to see what exactly I'm doing. So that's why I did the technique to go through the whole surface at the color and then I'm going to dry it and then apply the mass, not wireless wet. That's quite important to do it when the party is not wet at the, however you want. We're going to have actually this masking very beautiful flowers in a very Important, one of our important examples in this course. So please look forward to that tutorial and look at my handlebars. I'm just applying the masking on it. Now. Maybe I'm just having fun here. Maybe some circles of flower, whatever you want to draw, we'd be fine. Just make sure you create your shape exactly what you want because later when this dries is going to draw it like that. So after this, we're gonna go on it and apply the second layer of our watercolor and then let it completely dry. And then we take the mask of the papal. Now I'm just adding more details. Let these to dry day extra salts now. So you can see the looks of the previous example that we have done. Now I'm removing them. Hopefully, if you zoom in, you can see, but I don't need to zoom in. You can see the effects, the dots, either for sky when you are doing galaxy or a field full of flowers or anywhere that you want to have this texture, have this kind of feeling. You can use the salt depending if the solid is small or very big sea salt, you're going to have beer spots. Now, I know the mask dried, which is dries really fast. You have to be careful what kind of shape you want to draw on it. So easily, we can go on it. And then draw our second layer however you want, because you don't have to be worried or nervous that it's going to go onto the areas that you didn't want to. That's the reason we use the mask technique here. Because we just want to make sure that our surface, that those details, we want it to be untouched, not to be orange, for instance, here. They're going to stay the same color. So again, give washing your brush then I put it under tissue. We have to wait or you can use your hairdryer, actually go on it. You can see the result or you can wait maybe for ten minutes and then do it because we don't have much water and the surface is small, is quite easy and fast to do this area, but you have to be careful how much time you give it and how long do you wait in order to take the mask away? In our main example in this course, you will see how it's been done. Now I'm just waiting. The reason I'm not just going forward Elsa faster because I want you to guys to feel it that I have to wait for it. So now we can easily go hit and then remove it after a while. The best result is bit hand I have to make to let you know is just anything else you use. You can use a tissue or rubber glove or something. I mean, my experience is by hand. However, it's really a personal preference. How you want to do this? So the areas wanted to stay white, not get orange, they stayed white. Now, you can actually go on it and maybe add a certain color on it. It doesn't have to be orange, any color that you want. So I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial. We went through the main techniques, tips, and hacks for, for this course. And let's go through the next tutorial and buh-bye. 4. The basics of watercolor: Hi everyone, Welcome back to another lesson. In this tutorial, we are going to go through a few more techniques before I actually start going to learn about different objects and how to apply these techniques there. You can see I'm using my angle which is called dagger or sort to show it to you more about negative space. If you have watched the previous tutorial, you should have seen me how I move my hand, my hand, how I use these pedals and how I create them with this certain brush that you can see my hand look at the angle, the direction of the hand movements, and how I'm using using wet on wet that you learned in the previous tutorial. Again, I'm combining different techniques for you to get more familiar, how to use them, how to apply them with each other, and how to practice. So if you want to do wet on wet and then you want to apply more layers onto them. I will suggest you to actually use hairdryer and you can draw your surface much faster or even not using it is okay. So you can use any other, like waiting time would be like ten to 15 minutes. Double refine, like a one-to-two minutes time. So do not use any really hot weather, hot air from it. Now, after it's dried, we're going to use wet on dry to create layers. These are layers and this is a fading techniques. So you can see how many techniques I have like use in one single, like part of a part on this paper. I use the negative space. Then use how to use these brush and create different textures, different layers. And then add dry, did wet on wet, dry on wet, and how to fade. I suggest you practice this. Now. I always use my As I was saying. Again, we're gonna go through, you can see how quickly I want you to look at the quickie, quickness, the time for watercolor, you have to be quick in some points in order to be able before it dries out and you lose the water is surface that you need to create a certain texture, certain feeling on your watercolor, you need to use that time very efficiently. So make sure that you always use from the light phones and always wash your brush and dry it and fate the colors or combine the colors are overlaid the colors. You need to be careful of those facts. I'm going to tell you all of them by the when we go through next tutorials when we're doing the artworks. However, let's look at a few more examples before we move on. And look at my hand, long as how I create a certain very non-realistic flowers. But I'm using negative space and then layer. So this is wet on wet for us to create that texture feeling that quiet, beautiful however, you have to make sure that it doesn't go out of the outline. So it doesn't suddenly the water is not too much that it goes away, it runs away, and the whole paper gets full of red water. For instance, here, since we are using this kind of certain color. Now as you can see, recreate a very easily maybe in 20 seconds of Florida, which I advise you to do the same. Practice it so many times, not just once, two times, three times, five times. It's okay. If you need friends asked to do the outline, does okay as well. If you're not comfortable with the to create them, make sure you understand your brush. Outline, then go on it. The way harm showing it to you. Use the tip of the brush. Gradually go around, make sure you don't get out of the outline. I said that so many times. It's very quite important that you use a brush correctly, especially when they have such a sharp daguerreotype. So I'll show it to you. Which one is correct and which one is incorrect. Have a look at my hand. Bulbous. Hm, actually using the brush in order to draw a very natural leaf rather than just a normal way. That's always, maybe some other instructor lets you do it however easily. This way, holding the brush like this from the tip. This is the round brush. Unlike the dagger brush, it's different. You can have several colors on. It, will create multi color. Lea, leave my hand, move it one more time. Follow this few times. Look at the highlight, the beauty of having the beak color at the very beginning. And then it ends with a beautiful highlight and A-sharp ending. As you can see here. These are the points that I needed to tell you. Now going back to the highlight, how to create the brush highlight which you have learned in the previous tutorial, be applied on the tapes. All just go through a few more examples and I would like to ask you your practice. After me, you'll have your paper, proper paper that I have mentioned. Which kinda papers you need to use, which the GSM thickness of the paper usually it's better to be live between 252300. Those are liquid papers that won't pop out when you use lots of water from your set or from your cup on the paper. Now, moving on, make sure that you always have the tissue next to you. As you can see, I use it. Now I'm using the brush going through some branches for you to see how one what is the correct way to do it? Like at my handlebars, how I use wavy shape of doing it, and how I should move my hand and move the brush is quite important. So by different ways, different like pressure and also different handbook, you will get to the right way of creating rather than just making a shaky example that I did at the very beginning, which is not really my ideal way of doing it for beginners is good. But when you move forward, this is the way you need to create those branches. It just delicate, confident, and also have interrupted lines is very important. The thickness and thinness is very important, again to have an exists while you are drawing your D, either a part of the tree or branches and anything similar to this point because these are the actual point in any landscapes can to make your work looks very beautiful. 5. Galaxy paintings with stars: Hi everyone, Welcome back to another tier terrier. As always, make sure you have yourself prepare around yourself, make your seat mercury or tape held comfortable for you to be able to access to everything you need for. Not just the scores for any kind of medium that you would like to start easily. So one important point, it just to have clean water and tissues next to you always, I'm going to start using my brush to bring over some colors on the palette. We're going to draw beautiful galaxy way that it's not going to be very realistic, but it's a great way to practice something beautiful, something sharp or colorful and bright with apply previous techniques that we have learned before. Going through more difficult landscapes and artworks, you can see, I do have two different colors. You don't need more than that. So do not don don't have this worry. If you don't have enough colors on your set, you won't be able to draw Tesla true and true. You can actually replace any of these colors. Make sure you have evenly spread colors. Make sure you can see I made a mistake and really jumped onto the paper before actually making sure my brush is clean and has enough water. You do not do that as well. But easily you can take off the colors you don't need quickly before they have drawn and dry it from your paper. Now, important part is that you have a look at my hand movements. Adding more water spray on the paper where I'm adding more highlights. Let's highlight and how I'm going to bring more corners. The angles of the Euro, the very first layer, the way, the direction that you move your hand is quite important because that's the first layer and that's how it's going to determine what, what, what else you're going to draw on it is going to determine this is gonna be shown in the background. So make sure that you start from lighter color, always layer by layer, bring more colors, highlights. You can see I'm using two colors, pink and purple. Either it can be delayed or scarlet, like any colors that you feel they match with each other, they are, they go well with each other. Use those colors. The negative space in between has to stay still. You should not go on it and keep the whiteness of the paper intact. Now, look at my handlebars. Again. We can use the techniques that we have before. I'm going to create some textures and highlight with a brush and water. You can see how I'm creating them going on there. Create these effects however you want, wherever you want on it, but just pay attention to the direction that I'm doing it. So if you want to move faster to the second layer or even put some specialty, either salt or if you want to do salt dots on it in order to create those stars, you have to do it before you draw it. That's one of the tips I wanted to mention to you, but we're not doing that. And I want to show it to you how we're going to splash some white gouache colors on this. So have a look how I'm doing. You can do it with acrylic as well. Depending on personal preference. I'm trying to faded one important interests and feeling like it's not important. But the before and after we dry this, look at the color, you have to understand the color's gonna get going, I'm going to fade away. And they're gonna become so light. How much you have used and you think that's enough. You have to make sure after it dried, you're satisfied with your color, the darkness, the thickness of your layers. If there are not very dark enough for you, you need to add more layers. So it means you that you need to put more water either with your brush or the spray. The water spray, you will again add more layers onto this. However, I'm going to go dry this and then show it to you how we can create a beautiful galaxy for beginners and intermediate quickly within like 56 minutes. And so just realize watercolors, very enjoyable and very fast medium. And I expect you guys like create this galaxy with different colors, such as my friends and dark blue, light blue colors with a negative space, or light green, darker green with a little brown. Now I'm using lots of water with the white gouache that behalf look at my hand Lopez, I'm going to splash them. Be careful not to have your phone around yourself. Sometimes I just have my phone next away. And when I do this, when I just look at my phone, I can see the screen Can not be seen anymore because of this flash that I've done. We're almost done with this part. I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial, all practices, and make sure that you do it with different colors and going through your assignments and send your practices to me. I look forward to seeing all of them. Again. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I'll see you in the next one. For now. Bye bye. 6. Blue jay bird watercolor: Hi everyone and welcome back to another tutorial. As you can see, we have already our paper ready. We have this sketch ready, and you do have access to this sketch. Let's go around the beat, our brush. You're going to go around this bird for the very abstract surface, very abstract background for this Mockingjay that we're going to use some olive green. You can see how I'm using gaff some parts a little more, sometimes a little less with lots of water. Wet on wet technique. If you are not satisfied or if you want to lift some of the parts, you can always use your tissue. It's very important that you see like how fast sometimes move. And also you get used to this element of being quick and making sure that you have like put the enough colors, this the right amount. Especially when it comes to watercolor, because when it's colored pencil or pencil, you do have, you can manage the time yourself. But with watercolor, sometimes the actual science will manage your time and how long it takes for a dry. So we're gonna go through our body of our bird, of this Mockingjay. Mixing two colors together, a little like a lighter blue and a darker blue. If it smaller with the size, smaller, dagger brush, medium-size. I'm going to start going through the outlines that I have. And I mentioned to you guys that you do have access to all these outlines that I have drawn for you on either the outline itself or the grid itself. So if you want to do free-hand drawing like I do, you can go ahead and get that print out and practice from it. However, you can also get the grades because it tells you exactly the points that you need to draw each part. So as you can see, I'm respecting the outline. I'm not going to cross the outline here. And the way I'm using creating the feather, a texture is quite important. I'm using the tip of the brush here. You need to look at the amount that the second and the year. How much amount of a color I add actually here. It will be like that. When you're drawing a bird. It all goes to the details that you bring on 2D surface, onto the different layers going through. So you don't need to have lots of blues here. We'd like maybe two colors you can go through the whole process. Have a look at my handle, starting with the wet on wet technique because we have already put first layer and it's not dry yet, make sure the actual water won't get out. It just sometimes if wants to run away, you have to avoid that. This point. I'm using more. The tip of the brush. Again, interrupted lines. They're not all the same size. Some parts thicker, some parts thinner as we practiced in the previous tutorial. If you recall. Make sure you clean your brush and you add different color variations. Not all of them needs to be the same. New hand pressure. If you need to take off some colors that you didn't want, you didn't intend to apply, please do so with your tissue before it really gets dry. We've worked on this part in a very watery way. We give it some line shape effect with the top of the brush, the tip of the brush. Now, we have to represent some soft layers as feathers for this model, such as here. Now we're going to keep adding smaller hair strokes here. Makes sure that they always clean your brush with clean water. At different layers from a thinner lines P can lies and aligns. Also with different hand brush pressure. We can see how in a circular motion, I'm moving my hand. To go round. Nine added elicit dark. Darker blue, such as indigo here. We have to do it quickly. As you recall I mentioned, watercolor is a very fast medium. However, still when it comes to some details, special details, it is advisable to you take your time and you don't go around really fast, such as here, just make sure your lines coming out perfectly. Because that's when you can represent a very beautiful and drawing painting. When you are working on down, I'm still using the tip of the very sharp parts of the dagger, so it's easier for me to use this one rather than a round ones. Even the round ones is usable as well for here. So do not limit yourself. If you don't have the sort slash dagger brush, you cannot draw this. Now, it just, you have to make sure the angle, the direction of your hand mobiles would be as correct as possible. Now I'm going to color the first, the body part, the front of the bird. Here. When the calcium from the end part, the tail part, I go and reduce the hand pressure. I will continue. The layers, especially sometimes it's quite hard to explain. However, you need to have a free expressive strokes here. You can see and go around, surround surroundings of the app to see the feathers around. Sometimes long and messy. You don't have. Please do not put them in a very coordinated way. Organized way. Just very messy shirt or sometimes long in irregular sizes. Sometimes more water, sometimes dryer brush for this area. Here. I'm going to continue the drawing shapes. I'm not sure the Schar, these very sharp, but small pictures here. Make sure you fade out by going around and don't let them stay very dry. Continue with this movement. If you want, for instance, rod, different birds are with different colors, are really looking forward to seeing your practices at the same time. I have added, I'm going through your assignments for sure. You could try different examples at the same time. But one important fact here, you can see it with one brush. You can go through the whole bird drawing. Of course, I'm going to use like between three to four brushes throughout the whole course, but eventually, you don't need that many events. So make sure that even with that one or until like four brushes, you'll get a good brand. So you're satisfied with the textures and maybe you don't buy them at the same time. I sometimes say that you can buy them online, of course, is the easiest. And I do buy them online, but if it's your very first time drawing, I'll give you two suggestions. Are there asked me send me the link before you buy them or go to your local sharp, sharp and ask for experts to let you know that. Which brush they suggest. Because every country, every city, every art shop, they do have different brushes that they can be very different. So it's not definite answer if this is a good or bad brush because for sure we haven't used or I haven't used all the brushes that exists. There are some certain good ones and obvious there are some non good ones, but there are very medium ones in-between that they can be as, as, as good as the very professional bonds. Here, I'm using very, very small, either 0 or even double 0 round brush going through the absolute details of this bear drawing specialty, I point and then going through the the corner off the corner of the eye. And also the beak here. I'm going to outline the bird, speak for you for this area. And then after went on it and filled out the whole surface for this just this area, we need to create some highlights which I have to do it with tissue and I will show it to your house, been done even though you have seen it before. Amputated bit. Different leaves and also different surfaces have our lists. Let me show it to you. So I have lifted up that part with a tissue. Look. I'm going to show it one more time. Make it sharp and continue with a brush. Small details gonna be making a difference. So please do look at your reference many times, see the strong point and the, those points as you need to pay attention and add them for sure on your model. Those are important. You need to use the shadowing in the right way and also in some driveway because this area is almost dry, we don't have much our wet surface left a little, but not much. So I can say it's almost dry on dry now. Almost not completely. So make sure again, this is even though it's a retouch, but it's still dry on dry, almost. Creating double effect. Thicker lines. This way we create dark parts. On the tail. Use indigo, all ultramarine blue above. My favorite colors when it comes to blue, especially colors that I really like is cobalt blue that I use, still using my additive of the brush. So after that, we have to slowly move to our feet area. To start using smaller detail. Use a smaller brush as well, but not as small as IPP eyes and the peak area. So look at my hand woven as how I'm going to go through this and inconsistent line. That's why they look very natural when I do them. I do have students, especially my pencil courses, that when it comes to line drawing and the value under their lines, it's not like it's very consistent. I have to say they don't like try to create more realistic feeling onto the outline. So sometimes they put too much pressure. Everything is symmetrical. So you have to have this kind of free creative feeling and let go off the line. Especially for instance, such as here I'm doing go around, make sure your lines once they consistent they have they have some interruption in between. That is, I'm going to draw some blossoms in-between as well with a T dagger brush. And you can use any pink color that you have for this area. Pink spots, either magenta or any other kind of pink or purple color that you have matches the blue. Mockingjay would be fine for this one. I keep saying Mockingjay blue jay. I meant my apology throughout the material that we have. So this is wet on wet. We have talked about it before. The cam doing exactly when through this technique separately with the actual negative space we talked about. So we're almost done with this tutorial with a few simple lines, few simple like layering and few, again, simple colors. Retro color, this blue jay birth with watercolor elements. So have a look. How I'm going to just adding more spray is going to make your work more beautiful. Just spread it around. Don't be afraid to use your d is the water spray and use your creativity and imagination. So I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and practice at the same time. And I see in the next tutorial. 7. Winter sky watercolor: Hello everyone and welcome back to another watercolor tutorials. So I hope you have enjoyed so far. We went through a lot of techniques and also today we are going to start our very first snowy landscape, different sky compare to the previous one or anything that we have done so far. We are going to learn a very specific technique today. I'm really excited to go through this one with you guys and teach you about it. It is quite a fun one because it requires you to move your board and use very specific workshop technique. So make sure as usual, you'll have a very clean palette. If the paint has dried on your palate, use your water spray and go on it and clean the surface. You can see. Now this area, you have to make sure that you have enough water onto the sky part as you can see evenly or either use your brush to add that water onto it. We're going to use wet on wet technique to solve working on this guy and this sample. So make sure that it's been done correctly. Now I'm going to spread out evenly because the colors here needs to. You'll see what's going to happen. So I'll let you go through it with me step-by-step and you're going to have fun doing this. So have a loop. You're going to use light blue tones for the lower part. For this area, we need to see what rich color such as terracotta, which I hope I'm saying it correctly. Mainly telco for the middle part, the lower part of the sky. We are going to place the first layer, as I mentioned to you, during the techniques, usually we apply the first layer with a lighter colors. For instance, here there are two colors. One is light blue and one of them is darker blue. So for ISS, the combination between indigo or youth can be another darker blue plus terracotta or a lighter blue. It should be sufficient. Now, we have to make sure that after you spread or even put enough water onto the surface is enough for us to create very beautiful, lovely background for it here. And I'll let you know how you're going to wash up. Use that technique but a technique that drops down. So have a look at my hand lupus. And if you have your paper and they color set, ready, it will be lovely. You actually follow along at the same time. Look how I'm going to add the discard or with a lot of the water and also how this is going to actually drops down. This is the important part here. You're adding the dark layer over these areas. Just moping. Do not be afraid to do it. It's okay. Just go for it and trust your hands. But do not overdo it. Look at my hand. Move left or right. I'm going by still. We need to use the spray and have a look how it's going to go down now. The fact that I wanted to show it to you and I told you it's fun is this one. So you apply the first layer of a light blue and then you apply go from the very top or it should be the bottom part depends what you're actually drawing. And the magic is the water spray that we're going through with it. If you have that, which I advise you for discourse, you all get that is like $1 or £1, depending where you are. And let it spread around. Look how it's going down right now. You can see slowly either with a tissue, just clean the area because we don't want those dusk dose, additional light paint pigments to go onto the paper later. Now, just be patient and let it go at it. Slowly. The colors are slowly moving down here. But you have to get, the other ones are where you can see some mixture like this era, you have a very clean tissue. And one important point here is just you have to use tapes properly. On this paper. I'll tell you in the next tutorials how to use tapes properly. So have a look how just because if you don't use tape and just without anything, without any, you have secured your Paper. You can see this has popped out because of too much water. It has already it has some waviness on it now. Look, I know it has it might be a little weird holding it like this, but this is actually what you should do and it's fun to limit. The effect is beautiful. And you can do it with different colors. That is okay. Hold it like that. It's been like 12 minutes. If you're holding it like this. Make sure with whatever brush that you have is okay. Just make sure It's not that wet or it doesn't have another pigment on it. Go on it. And just a hint of touch. Blend the between the dark blue and light blue that you saw that I did have a look. This is what I mean. Make sure you don't overdo it. This one. You have to be very delicate. Barely touch the paper here. Now you can see we moved it down. We have to let it settle down here. The middle part, lawyer parse event more, moving the brush vertical and horizontal direction. At the same time, make sure the cottage remains plane as the surface is too wet right now. We do not continue working on it. So that wouldn't be damaged. You have to leave it for a few minutes. Let it settle down. As I mentioned, till this part Drive you'll work on the mountain with the same color. We made it indigo previously. Reassorted working on the mountains step-by-step, Leaving colors in form of stains and we tapping movement of the brush on the surface. So have a little town going exactly like this. This is how it should work on the mountains tapping the color on the paper with the tip of the dagger brush. Because you need to create this no effect. I suggest you to follow this. I was like this hand moving, my hand movements. If you can follow it alone. And with this organized toppings, just go head on it. I'm just going to show it to you quickly. Have a look how I'm doing it like this. You can see on the paper, okay, Now we're going to do the same thing here. Have a look. Here. We're going to practice more to hand movements, but this is not more practice. You're actually doing the artwork here. Do not take it to heart. Just feel relaxed and trust your hand, trust your instructor that is teaching you this. And I have to say start practicing. So it's only, I know it's a cliche, but practice makes perfect. So these are almost the tip of the mountain. I'm just very careful with my tapping movement, how I'm doing it. Because the surface is still wet, it is considered wet on wet technique, however, I'm extremely careful with the mouse does it's going to spread around. So it's not too much. After that, we have to use a round paintbrush. We are going to mix a green color and with indigo to create a darker pigment. As we mainly have cold colors in this painting, we are going to start painting the pine trees. Here. I'm just mixing the colors, getting the right color that I see. It is a combination of blue and green. So you need to have that darkness, that feeling of the blue event that the trees are green but you need to have that. I also want to say Christmas Eve filling but reenter a feeling of those blue and white and green at the same time. So we're going to create those feelings here for us to see. Let me show it to a little better so you can have a look. So we make sure the tape of the pine trees pointed and fein. So the thinner the tip of the brush is, the better would be. And then we'll start painting the exact length is tapping the colors on the paper with the tip of our brush. We do not have and remove the hat. We keep the hand on the paper and continue tapping. Movement to paint the pine trees. We can become Beckett better and better only with practice guys. So make sure that you practice it before you actually apply it on your model here. So have a look at my hand movement. I'm doing exactly the same thing I told you a few seconds ago. A little bit more water here to add the color combination so it looks a little faded because we have not tried the surface actually guys with the hairdryer before standing before starting this level. The colors case getting Alyssa mixed up on the paper so carefully cleaned and those areas you do not wish the colors go well, such as here, it's quite easy. Just get rid of the tissue. I'm just touching the paper to see how how it feels like. It is. Apparently we need to use a hairdryer because if you really want to have a good painting, you need to use that extra minutes. Are either overweight. You live your painting or do not start painting on it until it's dry. So I prefer to use the hairdryer and go on it and drive the whole surface. After this, we might use a little water spray, but we're going to cover it. Maybe makes sure that the parts for the pine trees for now is being dried. I've mentioned this a few times, even in my previous courses for watercolor, that few things is quite important. The amount of hot butter you use here, and how much time you hold this. Maybe around two to three minutes would be enough. However, do not use too much hot water. Hot air of your ribs, your hairdryer, or or such cold air. So keep it as medium. Now, let's see. I believe it's dry the area. And I'm going to continue going through what we were doing. The amount of blue or green, more darkness you add to it. It feels like it they look much closer than further away. So be careful of even the amount of color, tone, or color pigments that you use. The term mind if there are determined their distance. And compare this one to the previous one that we have done. This is the reason we didn't dry before. So the previous pine trees put feel like faded away because it was such a wet surface is Elizabeth on the red is spread out more and fate that's faster. Now, look at here is exactly the same techniques, but I'm adding even darker blue on them. Not much here, just a hint of it. So hopefully you're following the hat my hand open here. However, if he had any questions, do let me know. You're always online to answer you and guide you through your questions, either as wallpaper or how to use the tape, or how to use the brush. This brush is okay or not. So don't worry about the questions. I do have. Like students, they're like, Can we ask this amount of questions? Because once I did have students still have this student that posted almost every day around two to three times, asked me different questions. And I was like, Is it okay I'm asking this amount was like the more the merrier. Like if you ask more, it means like you're actually enjoying the course and you're practicing law. So it makes me happier to receive this amount of questions. So I'm just saying that to all of you. Don't worry if you're asking a lot of questions. That's what I'm here for you guys to go through all those. I'm not saying concerns but questions that you have. So you can get better at this medial. That's the whole purpose of doing this is just not art therapy or a hobby. Maybe some of you wants to really wants to get something from D as a career. So I do want that for you guys as well. So bottom line, any questions that you want to ask me, please do. Let me know. 1 that I have to let you guys know here. None of the crease here, they have the same color. This is exactly what you have to do. Even in color pencil drawing or oil painting, you will face the same issue. And it's not an issue. It just you have to face this done and make sure that you don't use the same amount of light color. You use a variety of different colors. In order to go through this, we are continuing to work on the tree. Some parts lighter, some part bowl there. Make sure your practice them with different more water or sometimes with more color pigments. And then practice here. If you are going to use a different pigment, make sure that you wash the brush completely and then clean it with a tissue and fate areas. That's my signature technique that I always tell my students. So make sure that you apply this. For instance, if you want to. First of all, before saying anything, make sure that the water or the pigments, they don't go to the cottage and dry there. So about the signature technique. Again, wash, clean your brush. Dry it with a tissue that you have peripheral. I prefer like kitchen towel, and then use it to fade the colors that you want to fade. Keep, continue going around. So for happy with the progress. Again, I don't lift and go right to left. Then the same was not harmonized way actually. You can see one more time on it to add the colors. The secondary, you're on this tree because it's quite forward next to the cottage. We need to make it. This bolt is almost like black, but we are using such dark blue. That's why it feels like this. This one is further away, the distance, That's why we are using more water, less pigment. Continuing with the tip of the brush. Hopefully you actually realize even though sometimes I don't mention it, but you can see with my hand that I changed the brushes. And now this is the round brush that is much thinner because I'm going to add in details. That's why we need such shipping. Continuing it. Now, randomly, I'm adding not randomly, of course we are looking at the the model, but most oftentimes I do like go held, I have the reference because it's there, but you don't have to exactly follow it. At some parts from your side. If you want to eliminate something or add some paint, that's really depends on you. Now, make sure of this one. Really cover it because you don't want to flash the spray onto the trees. We're going to go ahead with the snow area. Either be the same indigo or ultramarine. You can do this. It just use lots of water because these are really dark blues, dark blue colors. So I tried to use first spray the water a lot and I'm not going to bring lots of pigments here. You need to help make sure that the colors go well with each other. We have left, we have left some parts in-between untar, it gives the texture and the feeling of this. Now, we add the lighter layers first, and then we're going to add darker layers on top of them. As I mentioned, we have to leave some parts of white and we do not apply color on those areas at all. Because whatever I do, I won't be able to create those whiteness with white gouache or white watercolor pigment that I never use actually. So make sure that the whiteness, the pureness of the paper remaining, remains intact. You're also adding some shadows while we can, and while painting this part of this, no ones that you can see in-between the lines. These bars. Down here, they need to be darker. So we need to start adding either with the ultramarine or with indigo, the ones that you prefer. A second layer, especially here. And then we need to fit areas. So first, look at my hand move as I'm adding. We are only doing this in order to prove that this is a really close to the audience, this area. So it needs to be the very last part, the part that at the end, the bottom part round. Even though we say it's dry and dry, it's not a 100% sure it's dry. I'm basically, we don't have, in my opinion, we cannot really say draw and write that budget in. Literally Literary Award for watercolor medium. Because if it's actually just water, dry on dry is going to be such an abstract work. So you need some water onto it. Otherwise. First of all, without water to pigment is not going to come alive. And second of all, you need some water to mix the colors. How much I say dry on dry is still we do have some water in between. Now I'm adding a second layer with our dagger brush. How you're doing. If you recall, we did the same thing on top of the mountain. This is the same technique that I'm using. How I'm holding it and what places I add them is quite important. This also small pine tree here that you're going to add. Small whoosh, are not sure what we call them. Now second layer on it. If I want to add more second layer around, this is how you should do it. Now, if you notice I have a change the brush from dagger, which was such a big brush net to smaller round brush for the details going around. So continue the detail area, the detailed parts. These little details are quite easy to do, but I have seen in some of the, my students watercolor details, they don't actually care about like leaving them. So it's good that you put them there, especially in an inconsistent way that you are saying and make sure that you fade them right now. What I'm doing with the less pigment wise brush, I'm going onto the same details and fade them around F8, around them. Keep adding them. Now, I'm going to change the tactic a little here. So I'm going to teach you something new for the second layer. Have a look how I'm adding very watery details here. Completely different. These are the shadows you need to add is quite important. You pay attention to these details and create that. Shadow. Again. Nice to have some negative space, needs to have some actual highlights in-between, even here, because if you don't give them shadows, they are going to look like very two-dimensional feeling. Keep adding this annex to the small tree as well. Here. There are some, if we have to keep looking at the reference, if we see more shadows or not. In order to add them. We're going to use a hairdryer one more time to go on the surface to dry the puffiness in order for the papers puffiness to go away. Again. The same way we hold the brush, the same areas. Make sure you hold it enough so it's drives everything up. Now almost done. Again, if you don't do this is my text view. How can I say few minutes or maybe 15 to 20 minutes for this area to dry with this one, it takes two minutes. So it's really personal preference. Which one you want to do. Now we're done with this area. You're going to work on the cottage style. And for this we're going to use the smaller size of the brush or dagger brush. And also we need to use a brown tones and mix it with a little bit of burnt sienna. Any brown that has some reddish pigments in it. They kept my hand move as I'm combining the colors. So you can use burnt sienna, burnt umber, and care. So combine them to create that with the feeling. We apply the colors on different areas. I'm going to add the details here. You need to pay attention because sometimes it's quite hard to explain. We are doing almost dry on dry here. So make sure you know where it starts and where it ends. Especially the, the side part of the cartilage because this is psi and we have to create a three-dimensional like cottage house here. Javier going to use the heap and the direction with our brush is quite important. Again, my hand move as I'm holding it. This is a quite easy one because it's like around five to seven minutes you can finish and complete the coloring for this one. So don't ever pink like small details like small like drawing and painting. A house or cottages quite hard. No, it just, you need to create the textures because you can see some parts of this brown and brown parts are lighter. Some parts, especially the, the the top parts, they are a little darker. Going to make sure we have the outline. So we have to understand where we add the dark layers and lighter layers. What kind of brown combination we use. Another, my favorites colors is called sepia. So I use that a lot as well. It's a great class dark brown combination. When I don't want to use black, I usually use sepia instead. As we have added our dark layer on the lower part, using the tip of the brush. We take the beak color from the palette without adding any water to it. We darken these parts as well. We have to make for his dry because if you need to add these textures, you need to use the tip of the brush from the window shape, the square shapes, and add those lines as details. Create a clean lines here. Even though this is a fast drying, but in as fast as you need to be calm and have patients drawing it. It's a great balance. This painting, That's why really is one of my favorites. Now, determining the domain outline, I can do a better job here. You need to fade areas. So they don't feel like they're just growing up from nowhere. We add the layer of color on this part as well to look like this. Keep bringing some of the colors straight from the set. So you can do that as well. Just you need to be comfortable and confident about which color you're bringing. Maybe you can put the colors names next to them. Some students, they do that. So I suggest if you don't know the names and they colored, just put it next to each color. Going to create some snow onto this part of the cartilage. So how we do that with our sword, dagger, brush that is completely washed up and being dried. So make sure that you have that using ultramarine blue on it from the palette, adding more onto it. For this part. You need to really need it to be dry so you add hint of blueness here. Because delight for filming this is so bright. That's why some parts in the middle shows very white, but it's not this white. So it's much darker. If you add this amount of blue. However, we just want to leave it as it is and create quick chimney. It is smaller. Round brush. I just can't be black. Or again, you can use your navy blue or ultramarine or indigo is okay. And, uh, using any of them that is similar to the the pine trees colors that we have used. It will compliment each other very well. In this half, some shadow for sure doesn't stay there on its own. Now, we're almost done. We're just going to go around, see what's part left and add those apart. One important thing that I, I believe I have mentioned a few times, either in discourse or in my other courses that you need to know how much more details you add. And also you need to know when to stop. When to stop is quite important because just keep adding and adding doesn't mean it's the right job, but just leaving it with like the one layer, two layers, especially when it's pencil medium, I have a lot of steel than say just leave it quickly and without layer and go up. However, overdoing it is not correct as well. They're almost done. You need to become really familiar with your brushes, your pigments. Then you will have lots of confidence how to use them, where to use them, and where to place the pigments, and how much water to use. These are all the things. How much, even if you watch, it, will only come from practice and experiment. Different techniques with each other. So we just have faded areas we wanted to do, blurt them out, make them cleaner some areas and added details. You can also add they end, use some white gouache for the highlights as we are doing. And go on the trees to create actual snails if you need to, especially the other side of the cottage for this now, make the lines cleaner. Quite happy with D. The process. Please do go through your assignments, projects, and practice, and also submit them. I really love to see how they will look like. Next lesson, actually next year, Tara's one of my ultimate favorite ones that we're going to go through. So I hope you, after this, you're not really tired or have a risks. And let's go through another tutorial and learn something new. So again, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial guys. I really looking forward to receiving all your practices for now. Take care and bye bye. 8. Cherry blossom boat watercolor : Hi everybody. Welcome back to another tutorial. Today's video, we are going to work on this model. It has a simple design and we're going to use masking glue technique. And going around to see how to use them and what are the new techniques and these blossoms that we are going to use in case you find the same brand, that would be fine. However, any kind of brand for the masking tape, It's okay. Just let me know which one you have so far. If this is a medium that you have done already, and if you're new to this medial, you can send me the links that you want to buy or ask me for a certain link for the masking tape. However, if even you don't have this masking tape is still okay. Now I'm just gonna go through the drawing part of days to sketch the design with our pencil. Make sure you're using either H pencil or HA HB pencil. Hb pencil, I have to say because if you use much darker, it's going to stand out. And we don't want that for watercolors since the colors are quite fade away, they go really light. So make sure that if you're struggled with its dyes as well, you can find them on your downloadable resources, on assignments and as greed and also as outlines in order for you to draw. As I was saying, if you don't have masking tape, masking, tape, masking glue is okay. You can use the techniques that I have taught you, which is called negative space. You can just leave them out and with going around it to create those parts highlights. So after we continue drawing, doing this sketch, as you can see, you're going to start with the first layer, and then we are going to add up different layers hover. Let's start with the blossoms. For this part, you need to only look at my hand movements where I'm putting the sketches. But as I mentioned, you will find out, you can find all the outlines in the downloadable resources. We're showing the flowers here and also some branches in-between. This week, we highlight the parts which we'll paint flowers later. In watercolor. Generally, it is not necessarily to make the exact form of a flower or to details. So do nothing like having more abstract flowers is a bad thing. It's actually much more beautiful, however, depends what kind of flower you want to draw. I do have courses specifically on just florals and botanical. Also different techniques, only abstract watercolor if you want to check those courses. So now as promised, let's go through and showing you how to use the tape on our model. This tape that you can find out where to purchase it is a special tape that one part of it, if you add water to it, it can become very strong. And you can just make sure that stays on your board or to come taped. It will stay on your paper and it will move from your board or table. So usually are likely to make sure that it's the same size. However. One thing if what you need to make sure of this gum, paste, it just I would like to save from that. Now, before it's too late. If he really didn't want to purchase this gum tape, that is alright as well. Because when you try to get it out of your paper, that is quite impossible. Because this is such a strong tape. It will definitely some part of it will stay on your tape and you will have that brown and S around it. It is. If you get it out neatly with Caesar or a cutter, it feels like a frame. But you have to make sure that at the beginning you have put it on your paper in a very neat straightaway. If you want to cut that part away, Be careful of your hands when you're using scissors or cutter. Wanted to mention that however, you need to put, since this is water-based, we put some water on it and with tissue like this. But before I have done it, so now I'm just emphasizing on it. In the meantime, again, if you don't want to have that brown and mass on it. Just use the normal tape but few times. So it won't like you wouldn't just water won't affect it that much. For me, I really want to make sure Yvonne be puffy. The paper, even this best. Watercolor paper towels will become puffy at some point when you add so much. But then you just apply a lot of wet on wet techniques. So make sure that you're aware of that fact. And if you don't want to have that brown frame, just use a several normal tape with tissue. Go on it, make sure it's secure it. Now we're happy with the whole frame so far. Completely like glued on the table. Now we can move on. You can just make sure that our masking fluid is here. Any brand new one before showing you this, but I would like to first practice if you do on different paper, move on the glue up a bit. You can use old brush or one that you are not going to use anymore because the brush will be spoiled, will be ruined if you put it in the glue. So just have it as this one is for this, nothing else anymore. I'll explain how this type of glue works. Whenever in your work, which is white or should be in bright, I should have bright colors is surrounded with dark colors in order to keep them white and half highlights. We put this glow on these parts. And it can be flyover, a, porches or anything else. This way. B, make the form of the flower. As you can see, look at the four and these areas. If you want to create these ones, you need to have masking because you're going to have lots of splash, lots of different points. Now let's have a look. We're going with our example here before actually applying it. In this technique for smaller parts, we use scotch tape for creating some spaces. Look, it's like dots. You can use the ones that you have it in your kitchen. If you have permission. Use a little bit of it this way you can create really nice patterns. So a tape just have a normal of these. Anything that's the bonds that you wash the dishes rate. You can like cut half of it, like a part of it, £1 of it, and use it for creating this texture. So you just put the masking fluid on it, and that's it. So let's have a look heavier gonna go with the, this part. Now VS AMP want to clue in a part of the hair or a face painting. Again, we should do the same process this way we create the hair with a glow. Whereas as we'll work on the example of this kind of works in the future. So as I said, we create the hair for and then color it today to your preferred color after it's dried. Of course. Then I will explain the next step to you when we reach them. Now, it's been dried. You can see you can you touch it? You see that it's dry. We are going to use dark color here. Look, our glows, not completely dry yet. We should wait for it. A little bit more. Weight as much as you need to add this one, you cannot really use a hairdryer on it. So wait until it's dry, it's not going to take so much of your time. So any kind of dark color you want to use. Now I'm just going to use some dark blue, either indigo or cobalt, or the outer blue dots I like is called ultramarine blue. Sometimes it's hard to track of the so many blue names. Now, you can see in different like hand pressure, some, some areas more layer, some areas less layer and let it dry. Then after it's dried, we can remove the clue why this is getting dry for saving time, let's move to our main work and start painting the border line. It's better you actually practice this before going on your model. The same way. However, I'm going to use, since I've done this before, it was a hop practice before. I'm going to show it to you, how you've got ****, do it. Let's follow along and we're going to start before before I start out work as always, clean the palate, spray some water, and clean the palace so that there will be no color or unnecessary water on our palate. Have a load. Particularly in tissue, have loss of tissue takes to your kitchen towel wants, it's very good because they're very fake. Or if you don't have them normal tissue put several layers together to make it so it won't break easily with water. Now, we have a very clean palette. We can move on. We just do this because if some old color or water in our palette gets mixed with the new colors, it will change the density or the colors of friends. And these areas that you can see, you don't want the yellow or highlights our colors to get ruined. So now from light color to dark ones, from thin to thick ones, you're going to start if you remember, I have been repeating this like almost all my works. We have general rule here. The lightest color here is yellow. So we're gonna start with that feeling. Because they get there, they get dirty really soon. So that's why we need to start with yellow. The other colors retrieval of you're going to use called Brilliant, which zone, I believe in French is called yellows. So it's kinda yellow, pinkish color, which is, I have it in quiet, unique set. But if you don't have it as fine. And if my pronunciation or the meaning was incorrect in a French, My apology to our franchise therapists. So again, it's called John, Brilliant. The warm colors which we see here. There's a pink color in it as well. So the pigment of it. If we want to purchase this one. Actually, there are some brands that they have it in a very, very good price, so they are actually cheap prices. If you realize what I'm doing, I added lots of spray onto the, actually the, onto the color so they're ready to use. So I want to struggle like every time to use the water in the cup and then use it on our colors. Now, I'm using actually I'm going to use wet on dry instead of red on red here. As you can see, that's a better 0.4 here. Sometimes you can change your mind, so that's okay. Do what's best for your painting at a time, you will realize what you should do after you have started going through different artworks that we're going to do. Another one after this, however, this is one of my favorites, but I'm going to teach you how to do it girl, in a puppy field painting. The reason is that you're going to learn different, so many different Texans and techniques in the next one. First of all, how to draw figure, how to paint it, and also the details of it you never had before. Now, we're going to start my apology for a wrong number and the color on the screen, it's still the same one that I'm using. So it was a glitch for my animator. So moving on, you can see how creative I use the mixture of lemon yellow and also that we had or any Yellen Dijon brilliant would be fine here that I'm using. And the pink slash orange color for this area. Now these parts will be colored towards more dark colors later. So far, Let's go through the first layer. The upper side has to have more yellow. You can see how I'm moving my hand is quite important to use the hand in a correct hand direction in the correct way. I'm not just adding colors but lots of water onto the surface because my dagger brush is quite wet here. This way. This part, the white ones, they should stay there, keeps some of the highlights. And there seemed to be more pink in this area. The inconsistently, the non-linear, irregular way of unevenness as to the beauty to that work. So make sure that you have that on your painting, on your style. If you don't want to have it as wine, however, please do not make everything looks the same. Just freely express your creativity and your feeling while you are painting. That's the important part that I would like to let you know. Now you can do cadmium orange here. The reason I said at Rome, Berlin here because in Windsor and Newton that we use this. We don't have it from the ones that I have a separate and I'm not sure if he can purchase it from every country is a very old set. So that's why I keep giving you some names that actually, I'm not actually using, but are the same general names that you can use for this drawing. Even so far you can see MIS, I feel like the first layer came out very beautiful. So hopefully you like it so far as well. And you have learned how to do the unevenness, the irregular way of drawing here as well. File we're going to go to the next stage and start working and drawing the area. And then after it gets dry, be careful the extra water from the work, so make sure those are won't go suddenly Ontario always we did tissue, go round and take them away. So for this one, again, if you want to wait and maybe 22.5 an hour or 20 minutes to half an hour. You can do that as well, or just pick up your hairdryer and dry the surface as soon as you can. I usually don't like rating. So very impatient, various it's camps. When it comes to painting. I am very patient, but when it comes to making it dry, I just wanted to be done faster. Lots of action going on, on this kind of medium. For maybe around one more minute. We're gonna go and we're going to keep using our hairdryer. I just don't want to have any witness left on the paper. So the areas that I added more layers, I'm going to hold it a little more. We're going to use the mask and go in our work, it is important to completely dry before continuing it. That's why we're going through this. Now that it's dried, also our example dried as well. So let's have a look. I usually use my hand, but if you have some allergy to something special, which I'm not sure if this masking fluid has anything, but please do read the instruction to read what's on the box. But I use my hand to lift it up. Make sure that everything comes off. If you don't want, really don't want to use your hand, maybe you can use gloves with it. We cannot use anything else. You need something that is very it's going to take off the glue but also won't damage the paper. Hello Dr. Completely we put our dark color too. Lastly, we do this so that we'll have the whitespace, which we want it this way. So let's see how actually it's going to work this time. Let's go for our sketch. Make sure again, you're using an old brush that you don't want to use? I'm not saying I don't want, I didn't want to say useless because everything can be useful in art. I tried not to throw out any rank. I believe that I can use this somehow in our artworks. Now we are creating the flower shape. We can shape our actually are for lovers in different forms. As you can see. Some of them even looks like a butterfly or rounded or sharper, and some have sharper edges like this. All will depend on your imagination, like your creativity, how you want to form the flowers. Continuing going forward. As watercolor itself is a very fast medium. That's why I don't want to. Move forward onto this areas. So if you believe that he knows how to apply this, you can actually fast-forward the video, however, for our students who don't want to actually do it, I, this is going to be like a one-hour seat. As you just have to make sure that when you have a video is for one hour, give yourself 1.5 hour at least for that drawing. So you have the time you sit down whenever you want to pause, you pause it, your practice afterwards, and then your resume. The video. That's quite important for us to understand. The direction of the flourish should be different from each other. They are not all the same, so we have to make sure of that. Some of them, they should be like little towards like date and traverse top parts. Like they go up. And then some they're like looking down different angles, as I mentioned before, to make our work look prettier. I believe there is no more flour left. Now, if you remember, with our tiny little kitchen scotch, I believe it's called. I'm not sure what's the exact word. However, hopefully if you don't know which one I'm referring to, ask me in the comments section or message center section, I will send you a link which exactly tools I'm referring to. However, is the one that you actually can wash the place or different solvent it in your kitchen. Now have a loop. This is technique I was telling you. I put I'm blow on it and I'm just going to tap onto the paper to create this effect. It is going to be quiet, beautiful guys, I promise you. So which really cheapest staff that you have around you, you can create lots of different effects. So that's the beauty of art. Look how you can do it either this way or tapping. Look at the difference. Kathy, we have to add more onto it like this. Some more with your brush. And then we're gonna go on it one more time and add the remaining parts that needs to be added. Even though this can be quite abstract way, but I'm still careful where I'm adding. Is it too much? Is it we should not overdo it, and it should not be left to lethal, but not too much. Going around the two boats. The beginning, I call this piece two boats, however, then I decided to call a colleague cherry blossom, both watercolor. So I do come up with the names of the lesson, so I hope you liked it, but if you, maybe it's interesting for interaction. If you wanted to name these differently for your own artwork, let me know what name you actually picked for this one. Curious about the ideas that you have as a name, can also change this because you can buy a one. This is Paul piece of it. Maybe you can have another piece because at some point when you put too much fluid on it, it's going to lose its sharpness, those texture, and it's gonna become like more. How can I say smooth? In a disordered, this organized way? Put some areas, especially the corner sites, more. Without rush. We put glue on these areas. We are almost there. So let's have a look. The areas that we're going to put more. I don't need to keep saying you're adding and ask anymore, so I'll let you to watch this part. And until I go through the whole part. So we've been through this area a little faster and use our hairdryer to go and try this part. Now it's ready. It's completely dried. You can do it this way in order to make sure it's completely dry mouth. It is important that you actually let it not to have any wetness. Anterior blow completely dry, and then you're going to start adding your colors because it makes no sense. If it's still wet, you use it. Don't worry to touch it while they're okay. Nothing's going to happen. But still, as I mentioned, if do read what's what is this consists of? Now I'm going to because it's dried, now I'm going to spray. So nothing's going to happen. And I'm going to go through the first layer combination. You can use dark green and dark blue. Lots of spray water onto your surface. So we can actually create this texture. Here. I'm using the brush onto the surface. It's quite important. Here. I have to start from the left in a certain direction. If you have, if you don't have a dagger or sort brush, please do acquire one. Make sure it doesn't go to your boat. And if it goes, you can easily clean it with your tissue before it dries. Because you can easily lift any kind of watercolor at the very beginning. So stay tuned. Let's see how we're going to go forward onto the homeless. I have to say this is the second layer because we did have some first beautiful light Carlos layers. Now this is a dark ones. So we never do it the other way around. Evidence comes to watercolor. We let the B layer, the light ones, and then we're going to add the second layer or additional layers, which would be dark ones. Make sure you saw that. I put my hand when I spread this time because I need to protect some areas like here. So it doesn't go to the top parts because it's going to be too wet and the caudate is gonna get so messed up and it's going to be muddy. So extremely careful. The mixed feeling of the colors can be quite beautiful. So please do add them, make sure that you fade and I use enough water for this area. Some turquoise blue. Make sure that you've watched the brush dry it cleanly with tissue and then fade them. Does our signature technique up and down. I can now say left or right, because usually I say left or right, but this is kind of in a certain direction of handle. It is okay if they go into each other because the disperse kinda darker. But make sure the corners or even much darker, which will make the work more and more beautiful. As you can see. I have done a lot happy with lots of assignments and practice that for you guys. So do go through your assignments and practices and let me know what you think. If you need more practices, I can send you some links and certain. Free references for you to draw. If, for instance you don't have a certain picture or a reference. But one thing I, at YC, you, especially for watercolor, is really amazing that you, I'm not saying imitate, but you go and practice from the masters, from people that know how they're doing watercolor. I'm not saying the bathroom, please. Do not use the student's references. You and how much they are good. Make sure that you find a teacher that you really love and you know her or his technique, they are, okay, they are correct. And all masters. And try insert our pictures. I'll start practicing from actual paintings. Because it's much easier and it's better that if you start practicing from painting, then more rather than just doing it from picture, doesn't mean that is if I want to do it just for pictures, that is fine. By advise you that that's the best way. Really, when you go, for instance, to Italy to learn how to paint, they asked you to do it from learning from the masters, imitate dose. So this is the same ice a little bit skipped with the hairdryer. So since we have it now, you can see how much the hairdryer actually, when you let it dry, how much affect how the color change? Much lighter. So the amount of color you put there is quite important that you understand. Like, is it enough? Do we need more? This all from experience? Because if I added a little less than this, we wouldn't have this much color. Because when they fade, this is going to how they look like. That is a reason I had to use the fluid, the glue for here. I wouldn't have use it. I don't want it to use this effect. I wouldn't have blossoms. For watercolor, you can not go on dark areas because it's impossible. It's not oil painting, even an acrylic and oil painting. This is possible completely in color, pencil and pencil. You do have the ability to control it, but not in watercolor. So that's why we are using the masking fluid here. Kinda close to remove the glue now, much, I'm using hairdryer to dry the parse. Just imagine if you don't use it, you need to wait for a real long time. And you might forget, Oh, I had this artwork I1 n is to practice later. So I don't want that to happen. Guess yourself, very expensive on a cheap hairdryer. Now so cheap because this dryer, while one of my courses, which in the next few courses that I did for you guys actually stopped working. So I got a new one. Similar shape. Now I'm just making sure. However, this was a gift guys from a mall. So I'm happy to have it was very happy when I got it. If you want to do this more and keep drawing it, it's fine for now, but now it's already looked beautiful. We don't need to add more layers, are dry more. After that. We can move on making sure the tape still there. Do you see because that's the reason I insist on having loss of tapes because if I don't have it, it's going to be a disaster. Now with my hand, I'm getting rid of the rubbing off the masking fluid. Now let's have a look when I robbed the whole thing and how it's gonna look like this area. Remember which areas you put so you won't let it stay. Mute. Me mistaken as actual watercolor. The effect is quite beautiful. It is extremely beautiful. One of my favorites. Since we've passed forward the area, you should just make sure you go around and do the sampling. Very happy with the progress with the, with the whole thing, how they look like. After this, we're gonna go through the blossom parts and finish it with a certain. I'm red color and even pink color depending on your preference, you don't have to exactly follow the picture that you have. Dagger brush. I'm going to start using it. Look at my hand movements. I'm going to go through them. You can use your rose color, make sure that also you dry it in order to fade it. That's very, very important guys. This is what I'm keep telling you. You need to wash it so there's no pigment on it. And then you use tissue on it and then fade around. You can look at it, a technique, look at actually how it looks like, beautiful. The same way. I'm going to keep continuing this technique. When you dry the brush with it quickly start fading it don't let it dry. And then say, Oh, now I'm going to fade it. Yeah, when it's dry, it won't have this effect. So be careful of that. You can see the small point, the dots that I put there. And then I go on it and faded away. We have our blossoms. It's not hard, right? It's quite enjoyable. See how I'm just going next to the board and line up that dot that abstract shape in the middle of the plaza. Maybe cannot say there are seats there. I've no idea what they are. So let's go through the rest. With the same technique. We continue and look at my hand movements. I keep changing the direction of the brush. The same way for this one. And we will continue this. We will continue the same technique for all of the blossoms for now. So have a look. Some of them a little fade more or some of them less. So it all depends like which one you need to apply your brush on it more. However, you can see it just fits simple like brush strokes on them. They're really becoming beautiful. But you need to remember that one important bank will be our signature technique, which you need to wash the brush, hold a dry tissue in your hand, and then dry the brush every time and quickly start fading the flowers before actually the color gets dry. Different direction. I go all of them and make them a bit sharper and darker here. Such as here, adding hint of darkness. So to feel like more dimensional, look much better at now. Really happy with the color combination so far. Just a little more fading. Not all over. You can see some area. I'm adding more, some area with the tip of the brush I add less, will go through almost the last one to do this. Now you will see what is the process after this. So I hope that you have followed so far. It's been quite easy to do this one. It's actually very beautiful and extremely easy. Just if you follow, for instance, if you have the masking fluid and you have the simple watercolor set a few brushes on your paper. You can easily do this and practice with me. So hopefully, you will actually practice. To have a look. I'm going through this one. That line was a little too much like into the flower, so I had to get rid of it. Lsl, darker parts, maybe on it. Like here, I think we had a little masking fluid on it. That's why I touched to see if anything left or loss for me to get rid of it, but we didn't have much. So continuing. Now this part is quite interesting. What we can do, we don't have to actually go around and do actual blossoms, but just a hint of red, which we really lovely here. I'm just giving a hint of the color. What I'm doing, I'm just bringing very bright red onto it. So this can be on your palette as well. So don't worry, I like what she's using. I can now see the color it just the same colors that we are using before. For the yellow parts. Now we are, we want to move towards the branches. So I'm going to find a round headed brush that is small and medium-size. With only one of them would be okay. But I'm going to show it to you three different styles that you can see on the screen and how they can be used. And let's go through them one by one. This is the, you can see the sharp, sharper tip of the brush. The more, the better I like it. I prefer if the tip of them is very sharp. Is a Winsor brush means are near fan brush. We're going to do a combination of different brown colors. Here. We need to spray some water on it and the colors, So the brush moves mostly on the paper. For painting branches, we should make the color watery, fluid, so much like it should be issued and be dry at all in order to move easily. So let me show it to you here and show you my hand movements one more time. How much I get from the palette. You should not paint in line. We put the intake, the brush like this in trotted live. That's important guys. Look. Hand pressure should be sometimes more, less deaths important part. That's the beauty of like doing lines. Please do list, Align practice. You can have a branch that is wider just by pressing the brush more. You can have a thinner by pressing less. Now have a look at my hand my best. I'm going to continue this area, a little peanut line. You really have to make sure the lines, the branches won't come out the same. Because it's important we have different interoperate, more natural, realistic branches around. So some of them just showing for the sake of showing it. You can see the interrupted lines that I taught you just few seconds ago. Disconnect down. Make yourself go freely. You can see a lot intraoperative here, but that's okay. That's the beauty of the painting. And the last one. Like this. If I see your lines like they are not need or you tell me our watercolor or our lives one come out like this, I would say because we actually didn't practice on a separate paper. Or if you send me, I can understand the result and guide you better for you to enrich this disequality. Have a look, just a little brown ones in the middle. You need to do this fading, this additional like coloring. To make it realistic possible. Now I'm adding a little more here event. So I hope you enjoy so far. Only the last part left, and that will be our main two boats, one. So either you have to dry it or you have to go with another brush. However, look how I'm gonna do some splatter. I believe you have learned this before in the previous tutorials. But this one, you have to be extremely careful because we just need some areas for it to have this feeling with the Brown. Wants to do dark hair blue because blue is like the cutter or for the boat, It's almost going on a lake apparently are somewhere, so we need to have it like very dark blue, indifferent four corners. With this lightness, the work will look. With this kind of work. We'll look more at prettier. So I hope you have enjoyed again so far. We claim the around the work to be tidy this time. Some of the splatters, I just go on them and maybe tweak them a little. Because every tissue you can go on them and make sure they don't stand out too much because we don't want that happened. We just want it to be a natural some dots feeling on the background. Now we have to get prepare with our CPL, very dark brown color. Or you can use raw umber, but Tau over two colors can be used from your colors, either sepia here or a raw umber. I advice maybe CPL would be good, but if you can control it, if not, just use raw umber, because it's much darker. That's the one reason. So let's try a bit on dry, which is true for this case because the background is completely dried. Now if it did dagger brush quickly, I'm going on it. I do have lots of water, but not too much that is going to go everywhere after I have used it on the paper. Now if I'm adding more, you can see the line that I added. Less color are less water. But this one, the, for the body of the boat, it has a lot of water, so the color becomes like very bright, very light. So what we did, we wash the brush, dry, did good tissue, and fade the area. That's what we did. The part inside the boat is colored the same brown. So don't forget, then you can add some darkness here for the other side of the boat. But the angle wise and harm adding them is quite important because he need that middle part. Boats usually have two sides that people sit in it or ROI it. Here. How much I explained which I'm doing hopefully for you guys. But it's very important that you look at my hand movements and analyze what I'm doing. Like Rich brushes using how she's using her hand movements. Is it from the exactly the outline of the rich side of the boat? Now, Is it wet on wet technique? Firstly, towards a bit on dry technique. You need to actually, I know of course you are saying it, but tell yourself those points that I'm doing them because they're correct technique that I'm teaching you. So it's really important. You analyze them, then apply them on your own. Paintings. Created some lines in between to help more natural look, but in irregular and free lines. You can see it quite easy if you make sure that you do have a dagger brush, a soft brush. Then you use the tip of this brush to create these points that I'm showing it to you now. You will have it very easy. So no worries, just practice. You can see I'm giving much more darkness here. We're almost done this painting. It just one more boats left. And when we do that, we're going to say we're done. So you can see it is quite easy, dry, but make sure, for instance, inside the boat that I'm using brown, it has to have much more color because it needs to have depth in this obvious steep go inside is empty for people to be able to sit in it. So those facts, It's important when you do the drawing. The next part is going to be painted the same way, either with raw umber or sepia color, which I'm doing using sepia actually, but if you're new to it, you can use umber color as well for the surface to wash the brush in order. So what's the brush? Use your tissue and then fight the colors. Does our technique that we do. Here, we have a white texture on the paper. We will keep it because it's very beautiful. And some part of the boat, I would like to keep it out. Go round, shape it. So the previous one day per ad, the first boat needs to be darker because initiatives to show that it's further away. I'm using the tip of the brush again like the previous one. Because these two really close to each other, make sure the previous one is not so wet. That is, when you attach them that mutual line, the color is going to go into each other. We are almost done with these paintings, so we're just gonna go inside and color the roundness here. Even the sketch for this, it's very easy and not too time-consuming. So make sure that you prepare to sketch and start, like going through with it. At the same time. We had like some lines here. I would like to do the same thing for the second boat. Moving towards more lines here right now. Later the very important part would be the shadows, the shading around the boats. That's when actually the whole this painting is going to come to live. And that's the kind of punch point, a punchline for here. So what I'm gonna do, We sprayed it enough, so it's going to be red on red. Now have a look how I'm going to add them as like a lot of water. Then when you add them, you're going to add enough that it's coming from the top to bottom like this. Now slowly. Do the same thing for the other one. And don't be afraid to do this. It just needs practice, guys. You can see I'm just using the spray to bring it down. We will add one more time. So you have to do first layer and then go through it with a second layer. Make sure you clean it. You don't let the extra wants to ruin a ray. So don't be afraid to do these things when it happens, when it goes over, you can easily corrected and clean the color with your tissue. Now using the lines to create more effects on it. Now just get rid of anything that you're not happy with it. So one more time, Let's see what's left for us to add. 9. Girl in poppy field painting: Hi everybody. Welcome back to another lesson. In this tutorial, I'm going to take you through this beautiful model that you can see on the screen. You are working on this one which disguise a workout like wet on wet as well after flowers. However, the club part of the basket and the background areas are the kind of new techniques for you guys. So having close textures, some basket textures, and I feel a lot lower, It's very fun to do. As always, we have to secure as our paper onto the either your board or desk. We're going to use our gummed tape, which you have to make sure that you put some water on it on the side that it's a little shinier. Add some water, have a loop. You need to do this. Have a look how I'm doing it actually, last time I couldn't show it to you. So this time I decided to make sure that you see how I use the wet tissue and go on it. Now, after you use that on it, you don't need to do it with your hand, so do it with a tissue and then you can place it next to your, next to the border lines of the paper. Like here. This, for instance, Ellis are not happy with it, so just take it out quickly before it's like completely glued over and make sure it's been done straight. Because as much as you like, unfortunately, this is going to stay on your paper. So bear that in mind. If you don't want to show it, you need to cut that area so you have some extra space. In order to cut those areas? I usually don't know. Let it stay on the paper. However, if you don't want him to have that brown borders, you need to have some space to actually cut from the very first edge. Now, we're gonna go through this. You need to make sure that they're secure. This is quite essential guys. Maybe you say, okay, it's okay, we don't do it. We just got to start drying and using our watercolor set, but is quite wrong. If you don't secure your paintings, it's not going to come out professional and it's gonna be so puffy. It will pop out and it will not look. I promised you guys. So make sure you can security as much as you can. And I'm going to use a normal tape event on it. If you don't have the gum tape, that's okay. I'm not asking you to buy it. I usually don't want my students to buy a lot of stuff for their courses so they can afford, especially in this day and age, with so much like expenses we have. So if you have like normal tape that's still to do, it's all about experience. You will see that your tape is strong enough because there are some papers that they are not even a strong with a single luck, one drop of water that it goes on it and it's done. So you have to realize, is it a good one? Is this one's going to be sufficient or not. And then we can realize, okay, it's good enough. We can use this method for a long time on our medium because watercolor can be a medium that you can make a lot of money out of it if you do nice bindings, either become REITs, put it in galleries, or send it to like online platforms, or even sell it to people near you. Different like cafes stuff. So also enjoyed a lot because it's colorful if fast, medium. And you can see I'm just preparing myself, so I'm just trying to make sure that you understand the benefits of watercolor media for you. As always, I cleaned the palette. It's thought that I'm just being lazy movies of tires, but you have to make sure the palette is very clean. So I'd like to show it to you even after you have done your previous like war still okay. To do this one like this, you spray it with your water spray and clean it properly, especially if you're starting to do a workshop, a technique especially on the sky or like a C or background that is very bright and has some maybe really light blue or light yellow like here you can see you need to make sure that your palate is clean and doesn't have really dark colors. When I say natural hair brush or any brush that is pointed out. Rs and civic ones are natural ones, is really personal preference to go with the ethics that you have. What kind of brush you want to get an asked me if the ones we want to get is the correct one. And I can guide you better. So you can see I started adding different colors with lots of water. I'm not showing the water cup right now, but I keep using it. Now. I've just pulled out some spray bottle spray onto the AR model. So stop going on it. Wet on wet technique. You can do you can if you don't have water spraying is oh, I don't have this. I cannot start. That's okay. Just put the water with your brush on it, but make sure it's clean brush and it's not so small. Like don't use 0 round brush for putting water on it. It's going to take like maybe one day to do that until you've completed. One area is dry and the other ones. So having a right size for a certain surface is quite important as well. My other courses, I have covered this a lot. However, again, let's go how we've paid this. You have to make sure your venue fade in between. Your brush is clean. Again, it doesn't have the previous color. And then you use your tissue on it and a fade the colors in-between. This way we're going, We're almost like Happy birthday background. You can see how easy it is now I'm using the same technique that I mentioned to you. Now fading in between. The fading in between and how I'm used my hand is quite important. I just put the color and then I'm going to spread them because I need to clean the blue out of the brush and then do this. You cannot have the same amount of pigment and think that you can actually faded away is not going to happen. And you're just going to make the sky looks messy. If you want to do dry the area, we can use our hairdryer and make sure that these guys done. Since I want to teach you a little about the background and how to do the background for this. This is a technique. Have a look how I'm doing it. First, you need to create a background like this. More circular motion, I have to say in order to show the distance with maybe olive green. So how I'm going to combine them is quite important. See the color changes from raw nature. For the background area we are using this color when working on these areas, we don't need to use brush in a certain way, so make sure that you follow. Doing. The brush movement is quite important. We start with from pain and then same color in a fake area in a fixed way. We don't, we don't put our brush into the water again, much much weaker color with the same movement. Even getting darker. Here, I'm just moving the brush movement. So making sure that you understand how I'm gonna do this since I need to move fast onto the surface. So that's important. Now, we can apply the same feed onto our model. Have a look how we are going to start doing that. Have your tissues ready next to you. Now, we're going to continue. After we have done. I put enough color onto our palette. Just writing the similar colors named that I'm using around. So don't worry about that, just the colors that you see on the screen, just make sure that you're using them. So what I'm doing, I'm just spraying the colors. That's a brief that's actually something like a tip to do. You covered areas. Well, now we're going to do wet on wet technique here, exactly what you learned right now. We're going to apply it here. So have a look at my hand movement. Make sure you don't go on to our model. You can find this sketch from your downloadable resources above outline and a great version of it. Mixing the colors that you want. This one should be a little darker. Usually I really like to add some brown to the grain because it will make the color looks more mature. Now we are creating the background. Now I'm just spraying it. Look how when you spray, how it's going to go round. It's going to spread around more. So this is another technique that I've done it so many times. If you draw them and you feel like you're not spreading around enough, you can actually use your water spray and go on it more. Now this is an effort layer Guys. We are adding look how quickly we created the background. Within like 15 minutes. Especially we have used hairdryer as well so that to collect five-minutes of our time, we created both this guy and also almost the green background. Maybe the green hills, I have to call some just making sure the colors do not go into the model so you can take them away but your tissue, if it happens and please do it right away before they dry. Using the tip of the dagger brush in different direction. Kind of trying to create the same background patterns with this brush movement. Now, this is mainly about my handlebars harm using the stop. Because so far you have actually learned everything that we went through, either through the techniques, the introduction, lessons, tutorials we went through and we have done for you really advanced artworks. Since we are going through the last one, this painting. Most of the techniques we have done it just for you to follow and combine them here. Second layer going on it. Add more, make sure you have your negative space and white highlights around. Keep adding. Not just I'm adding it wherever I want. It is like that, but I'm making sure it's understandable like I go on the same areas. Again, add the second layer. This one, I taught you a once in one of my courses, but here we didn't have it yet. So this is the tip of the Delete of the brush that we are using. So you can easily create highlights instead of using anything that's going to damage your paper. Either for branches or the petaled flower petals wanes, or trees that you want to create. Line highlights, but you cannot do it with brush. I suggest you do it with the lead of the brush, something like this. Use this one and you can lift up the colors from your painting. Now we're going to make sure everything's nice. Everything's place correctly. Before moving to our orange. Tapping. In between, we started going through because we needed to place the the greenness of the field. And then we're gonna go through the flowers for this one. We need to seem to leave some places wide and we take a fair amount of orange and maybe a scarlet color, use it in some part. So a combination of red and orange, something like scarlet or any kind of chrome, orange would be fine. And if free and lively way. So have a look. I'm just going to go through this whole area in the same way, same technique. The tapping is very important guys. You can see, I do it sometimes with the right side of the brush and sometimes with the left side of the brush and have a certain like handbook all the time. In this stage, we should live the work for why you do the same thing. For the bottom part. We have already cleaned the brush. We wash the brush before actually starting the bottom part. You didn't new color. Use any to use tissues as well for the wet on wet spray and spray the bottom side, you're going to start putting some green color there, such as olive green in some areas, or sap green. Depending on what kind of colors that you have, you can actually combine both SAP and Olive here, or even at a hint of sepia later. So it's like the color become mature. If you add this kind of combination. We can see watercolor is such an easy medium after you practice. We are using the same green that we had, sepia. And then we'll go around it between I'm just making sure I won't go event. I'm doing it fast. I'm making sure I'm not going inside the orange ones. Create and one-by-one. Slowly move along. And I hope your practice at the same time as well. If it's a little too fast for you guys, please pause the video. This is like 1.5 hour. Work, maybe 120 minutes. So max, It's a little longer than anything else that you have done. So you might get tired. However you cannot leave. It's like guest completed dry and start doing it because at some pores the technique is wet on wet. And if it's completely dry, it's not going to come out correctly. For instance, especially this area. You can all leave it in the middle of it. If you don't have time, I suggest that. Don't you just do the sky and the green background but do not go to the airfield area because you need to spread the wet on wet colors. You can't see it because of the wetness of the background. We are having this effect right now. So the timing and you're sitting in your schedule is important as well for watercolor mediums such as pencil or colored pencil, and also acrylic doesn't matter, but oil, oil painting, and watercolors, they don't matter when it comes to certain areas. Now it's all about the combination of different colors. Let's watch it in real time so you can follow along. You can see the brush pin has splitted resell parts. That's why they add the effects is being created. I expect like if you're getting a brush, you're buying it, tried to choose one that you will have this effect. The tip of the brush is very important in some areas and you have seen that I use it a lot in different parts. Now I just have to choose how much more color I'm going to add. Every time I need to clean the brush and change the brush into the correct one because maybe sometimes you need a smaller brush and sometimes bigger ones such as here. The previous one was quite big for the inside the poppy flowers. So we needed the same brush, the same format, however, a smaller size. You can see my speeds like dropped from really being a speedy going through the fields. Now I'm just being more patient and more focus accurate to see where I'm adding them. This has less water inside is more. I cannot say. It can't be called dry on wet technique then with tissue or I'm just going on them to create the effect that I want to. Because if you press the tissue on it, they're going to spread it around and going to have some beautiful effects. Going to add some extra ones in between to show really small flowers. Then we have to fade down with the brush later with our signature technique, which it means you have to clean the brush, use your tissue, and then go on the ones that you want to fade. Continuing good. It's the same technique, so I prefer rather than me keep talking, you actually look at it and see how it's been done and follow along. This one is done. That's why it keeps coming out. When you see a paint is actually finished. That's a good sign. It means you have practice a lot and I would love to see your color set has some finished paints because it's made a dad yeah. Practice Yeah. Followed and hopefully enjoy for sure. In every color said that there will be colors that you will finish much faster because unfortunately every color set, they have some really useful cutters. And my apology, my wording, non useful ones. But no one wants to use them. At some point, maybe you will use a once or maybe maximum ten times the whole process. So as we are continuing going around, the next important point is that this is a flat field, is not really, the puppy is not popping out. How we should do that. We need shadows, we need correct shadowing. So the way we are going to do is again, with our signature technique, how to do it? We have to create a shadow with our green and a little sepia. And to go around, it is called dry and dry. First, we have to add some details. Small details create beautiful. I don't want to say branches or anything, like whatever you see when you go on a field. We're going to add those details here, but not like everywhere. You just have to understand and feel like where you want to spread out these details. Well, you can follow along and place them everywhere that I'm doing. Or you can actually use your, I use imagination and do it yourself anywhere you like. However, the important point is like how to create the shadow. That creating the shadow is quite important. So we need to find out where we can place the color next to the flowers. You have to understand where are the outlines of the flowers. Use the right brush that we're doing right now. And roots, they use the same amount of color and then add our signature technique on it. So I'll show you how it's been done. Let's add the details that more details that we need. So now if you're fading, get Cv go round and faith. Go round and faith. Now we're going to do one of the really big ones here. Let me show it to you. Put much darker pigments here, and then clean your brush and then fade it like here with the tip of your brush, I was able to save you the tip of your nose. So we're going to go through the next one. Sometimes when you focus so much, your brain's not working as your hands. So my apology, if sometimes the worst doesn't come up in a row, correct way. I'm continuing. As you can see, like we are putting like the shading in certain areas, not all day, all of them. So pick up each flower and go round. You can see they actually it looks more three-dimensional right now. But you don't wanna do that on all of them because it's kinda looks very weird and artificial. So you just need a right amount of lovers to feel like they are 3D version or they have some dimension onto them. See how I'm doing going around the cat, my hand movements. We continue doing rally, can see my speed a little. I lowered my not speeding anymore, just being very careful. That's what I mean here. Because it's not about how and when is gonna guess dry. We have enough wetness on the surface. So I just have to pay attention and create like this non-orthogonal, like this organized a version of the shadows around. But if you notice, I still have some whiteness around. Here. For instance, there's a white here, but then here there is shadow. So make sure that you create both. These two patterns are alongside. Next point is to use our white goulash around. If you have followed along discourse and been through all the techniques, you can note that I use this almost every time to create some highlights to give some shininess onto our paintings. However, not just in discourse in other courses as well. So as well as just having are the whiteness of the paper, we have to keep them intact. We do have some white gouache like textures. We go, we go around and create them. You can see I'm adding more, have a look at, have a separate brush for the, for having this one. So if you have ever found really cheap brushes that you can use one of them for your masking fluid and also one for gouache that would be brilliant. And you could keep using them for years so you don't have to spend much money on them. Even use ones that you can borrow from someone, Or they don't want to use it, or they wanted to grow it out. Maybe you can get it from them and use it if you don't want to buy anymore. If you want to get rid of the additional colors with your tissue, you still can do that. We have to sometimes move the brush in a way that we have to elect we're throwing it away. I'll show it to you in a minute. What I mean by how to use the brush, how I'm doing right now. Like here, we can handle this, how I'm moving the brush, it just from where to where we're adding like here. Just make your brush to jump. But not to add too many areas, just a certain places. We have to do the same thing, but the other direction in the field as well. The more details you add, more beautiful your work, they'll become. After with our hairdryer, we tried the surface, the places that we want to make sure that you have your new tissue next to you. You're going to start with it. We want to work on the flowers in the basket now with a round brush. So we are preparing tickets to do that right now. Make sure your palate, it has the colors that you need. Or if it's not clean from previous words, you clean it. The smaller brush. I'm gonna go through this really, you need to pay attention with the hand, the hand movements here. You can see why I have the tissue. Exactly my hand. That's why I cannot give you showing it to you because it's quite hard to bring it under the camera all the time. So but I'm cleaning it all the time. After I add the color, I need to clean it in order to fit the colors and have less colors in some areas. So this is like adding some spray, making it wet on wet technique. Then you can use some cadmium red or scarlet color here to add darker, darker color on the orange ones. Because the hand movements, adding more and more. Now, second layer. Let's make sure you have your negative space. The highlights of the paper is still somewhat some of them there, even though we can use some white gouache on them and we will later on different areas, however, for now, make sure you have some white highlights from your paper. Stays there. Now directly. We bring the color and that's that. That means that we required to have a proper read on the puppy, puppy field. Flowers. Now continuing, adding more, just have to look at your reference and see where else you need to add them. So at some point you need to wash the brush and start fading the upper side of the basket. This one flower. We are cleaning the brush and then put some spots using the color picker way better. Can't see my hand movements go the slower and more detail. Darker color. Make it they're done properly. We do have the flowers in other areas as well. So the same way we did on the left side, we have to continue on this side as well. Again, if you have any questions, please do ask me. Please do ask me. I'm always online to answer you guys. If you have an urgent questions, you can say like urgent at the beginning of your message and then let me know. What is it. Either It's like bias, special tools or any of these mediums. Even you have any other questions regarding other mediums that I teach, which would be literally some other every other mediums, even digitals. If you want to learn, let me know. I can send you more links about different topics that we cover. You can go through them, see any of them interests you for the future. Mediums that you have in mind for you to follow. Having more. You can see how many layers I'm adding. This is almost a third or fourth layer here. This one's a little different from the other technique that we did in the previous tutorial. We add a dark color and faded it and create a flower here we add the light background for the puppy and then another medium color and then much darker on it. So you can do both depending on what kind of Florida you have. Now let's go ahead with our hairdryer. We ran through it a little faster. I spent like maybe one minute to dry this area. So that's that fast move. Movement on the video was just around one minute having hairdryer. Now we're gonna move on to the next area. Let's see how we're going to go through with it. We can use dark colors like brown or black, or even indigo blue to create dark colors here. We should do it in a dry and very freeway. You need to express yourself here. And the car, especially here it should have interrupted. Caribbean Lines. Basket is quite easy. Just have a look heavier going through with it. And then you can create it at the same time. You need to create realistic look it, but if they are not irregular, lines, are there. So neat is not going to be like, it will feel like fake. Have a look at how I'm doing it. In some areas, I add more in some ideas and areas I reduce. Be fated that the lawyer apart slowly create a texture. You can see from an edge, I go a little in here. You'd need to make sure that your brush is quite thin. Brush maybe 0 or number one. And use dark. It's better not to use black, but maybe dark brown bonds. Or this area. Slowly, we will see which areas we need to add more. This tiny little lines can create baskets that we might have a fault. It's very hard to create, but you can see it's not and it's quite easy to do now. So I hope you see, oh, it's easy. So I really want to try it and do it. Now. Here we have to do it a little carrier. Now, the outlier shouldn't be that obvious. So make sure you do have some in Tropez broken lines in between. Now this is almost the last part. The light should sometimes be fine and sometimes fee care and dark and some areas faded. So make sure you have that kind of feelings around. So making sure we going around to faded, paint the colors in between to make it look more realistic. Bit blue color. Very like light, dark, light, dark blue dots are actually light blue. We're going to go around and it gives some shadow failing onto it. Make sure the areas that you want to fade away, you have done it properly, like especially these areas. With the same brush, we can actually go ahead and create the after this creative branches and the branches, the lines in between the flowers as well. That's been a very, we feel happy with the whole process of the basket. We can move on. So this time, it's better to use a darker green color. Lethal indigo blue, maybe a darker blue that your hub and brown. So maybe you can use olive green or some sap green or maybe indigo or sepia. If you don't have fern grant, that's why I just use the ones that you have. This one is very important to look at my hand boomers carefully. The way I'm creating them is quite important to be summaries, fake and ethane. In between the flowers. Using the tip of the brush. Continue. Let you watch yourself on these areas because it really doesn't have much explanation. Everything that you need to do, I have explained to you how to use a brush, the tip of the brush, it has a nice to have enough water on it. And you need to, you use fake hair, lines and sometimes painter and sometimes more pressure on it. So it's I'll leave better trace and sometimes less. Here I'm using another Poppy, poppy flower here. It will make it more like a standard tomorrow and feels more realistic. We're almost done with this area. We're going to, after this, we're going to start with the skin tone. So please look for are to go through how we can create a skin tone. And also then we're gonna go through the figure, the hair, the texture of the clothes, and also like how to combine and the correct closed textures. You the whole area with the other areas. For the body we need to clean the palate so you can see the colors better. And also for this game and for the outfit, you don't bring colors that you didn't intend to. We can use burnt umber or burnt sienna with them on the palette, bit of sepia. Those are the right colors for the skin tone. Since we are combining the colors for the for the skin tone here. For this one, we can do yellow ocher and burnt umber. Again, if you have other colors that they don't have the same, similar name, but they do have the same color town because each brand, they have really crazy different colors. So it's okay for you guys to actually go through with it and experiment if there can be correct colors. Now I'm going to start from the neck drawing part. Going through my hand movements. So slowly make sure that the first layer is quiet like bright, because the first layer should not have lots of color in order just if you have done any mistakes for any reason, you have the ability to correct it or they're lifted off with a tissue or unlikely fill out with your brush with a lot of water on it. I'm going to use almost the same brush size. I might change it. However, if you don't want to change it with one, you can do it as well. So we will continue. We need to use color combination we made before it gets dry and use it for this part. You need to create a thicker color. At some point, we will have like around only two layers for the skin. I don't want to add too much because our model is quiet. We have to be creates subtle colors. So if you create maybe two more than 34 layers is gonna be Yvonne. Look nice. So two layers would be enough for here. We're still on the second layer, so we just have to add details on it. Create a wrinkles behind the and neck because this part, when you walk, you cannot see maybe behind by the neck should look like this for these areas. And we're going to determine some of the outlines. You have to be extremely careful here. Just a hint of it. Then go ahead. At the shadow parts. For our second layer is done properly because we don't want to go back on it few times. Then wash your brush by PID PD tissue and do the fading techniques on it. A point that I always tell my students, either in this video or any mediums near the line, always darker. So this also apply. Here. We're going to work on the outlines a little more. Darker one sip here. If you don't want to work with SAP or you can have burnt umber here. But Sophia is a good one because I don't want to use black, ivory black, but this one is the correct color combination for here. Just even add more next to the line. We have to make a border lines on both sides. Then after that we have to move to the dress which has some blue color on it and indigo. Let's see how we're going to start with the clothes parts, but the texture for the texture of the fabric. I'm just looking at my reference to make sure that you're going to place them correctly and everything's there. So now let's start with a very faint blue colors. Even though they're dark blues, but not much of them. We're going to bring here with lots of water. As I mentioned before, this is like our white slash, a very light blue color address. So we have to careful about colors and how much we use them. Not too much. Now here I'm going to add thicker lines. So as we said, a profane, and then now in order to create those, we just have to put a little more pressure onto the brush. You're going to continue this around here and go on to one more time. Don't be afraid this is still a white dress, but we have to create these feelings on it in order for the dress to show. Now, we have clean the brush with the tissue as well, and then we got a fate around it. Our signature technique. I believe all of you have memorize this techniques amount of time I've mentioned to you guys. So hopefully we will not have any pop quiz. But if you did ask this question, baby, I change the brush here to have a bigger one in order to fade it. But if you don't have it, that's fine. Even with a smaller brush, you could have faded away. You have to create the wrinkles on the fabric. Minimum refilled brushes now moving smoothly on the paper, we have to spray the color skies and also bring water onto it. Now, let's create the wrinkles down here as well. Even the wrinkles is to have different line pattern. One, the lighter, one. Darker however been Daegu out like here when, because towards the end, you need to actually make sure that they don't fade away onto the fabric. Like how you are doing here. Let me just retouching the, some of the wrinkles we have created. Make sure you're happy with the outline and the anatomy of our model is being done correctly. Adding the waste wrinkles to bass part. This add enough shadows and dark, darker outlines. Continue with the I have to say for the right side of the back of the dress and faded with a clean brush. Again, I've paid at it. Clean the brush again, therapy tissue. Now I'm going on the and the previous lives and give some shadow. You can see how easily even though we have such a white dress, but we craft created it with blue outlines, is the same as this now, because when you want to create snail's feelings, which I have taught you in this course, how to do it. You have to use blue and maybe a little purple, some points and gray in order to create a whiteness. And you cannot have white just on its own. It's not going to like books or feel realistic. These are the very last touch as before, I move to the hair part. Now slowly. We typically air brush. You can go ahead and it has some water on it and make sure that everything is faded away but not too much. So just a hint of going around with it. It's okay if you don't do it, it's okay as well. The hair, we're going to cover it with the same color of the skin tone almost. So don't worry about having too many colors. I'll show you how to do it in a minute. I just want to make sure we're happy with the details of the poppy flowers. Now this looks like a flower for the basket as well. We can use the same colors as we did before. Bad part, I just didn't continue yet. Should be the hand area that holding the basket. I'm gonna go through the fingers first. An outline it for the first part. We should move move from light to dark, dark for sure. And also the handle of the basket. We have to make sure it's been done correctly. So it makes sense. We have to have the handle on the shoulder. She's holding it in a certain angle. Our model on me. So in-between the finger outlines here, go ahead one more time just simply with the same brush that you have and does one right to left color and we are done with it. You can see it's not hard to create it. Now for the hair area we finally entered, we are almost done with this TTL. So before we go through the hair, I really hope you have enjoyed it so far. Let's go through the last part and finish this painting with these hair drawing and painting. First, the first, first, the first layer. We are going to apply. Again, as I am he showed to the old Cara. We take the color, eye color completely in a watery obey look of wash the brush as well and is preferable to change the water for this one. So you don't have any green or any yellow on it. Pay attention to the light parts. But if it leaks to the darker and darker parts, it says, Okay, redraw the whole apart. The surface here. Now. Now when we feel this elicit dryer, next step, we have to go through the outlines, the hair strokes. With a browner color with maybe a sepia. You can even use some black ones as well. Slowly with very thin lines around. Make it carry at some point. Actually you have enough pigment, but not too much. That is kinda be black. You have to have a hint of pigment on your brush. Like here. To brush also should move various meal plea, disordered way. The hair. It has to get dark hair because as we move towards the roots area of the hair, because usually the roots should show some dark pigments in them. We want to represent that as well. Like here. Look at the movement of my hand, moving it from left to right and let go off the line. After this, you need to quickly wash the brush and continue fading this part. We can do it very quick. Now, let's do it. Now. We're going to fade it with a tissue. You can do that. You don't have to use much water. If it's very dry, you can use water and then tissue and then fade this area this way. So after that, we can go towards the dark color we made. At the very beginning, subparts should be darker. So we're gonna start creating dose. Such as here. The direction of the brush has completed, change. My hand movements from the other side as well. My hand here, if you notice. Harris crowns quite important here on how you do it. So please practice the some loose strokes drawing around the main ones, like here. We should feed them as well. You can see how easy it was to create the hair parts. So whenever you came across to create them, you can say, Oh, it's hard to do hair, but after practice, the hair drawing will become your favorite part. Trust me, at the beginning of April and maybe eventually it will be I'm just making sure it looks as realistic as possible for the area which we are fading. The hair strokes here. Work remain to do for this model. These are the details works that I'm working on. I hope you try this one and enjoying it. And then we have to try some shadow on the face with either burnt sienna or so
