That's all about the Art Sur place. We'll want to our next chapter. 3. Painting Techniques: before moving on to our class project like discover some off the techniques required to pain the project. Let us go to with one Bible. First, we will learn the techniques for sunset murder. To paint this, we should know how to paint the sunset. So far, sleeve being doesn't we'll pay quarterly. Then load your brush with beans on a more in painting a small circular region depicting this on. So you're going to paint that on the radio? No, I'm some darker colors on the corners now for the middle, we will add a local first and then gradually build a darker Leo's using wonderful I'm Cottage. Then, once in grace, you're goingto some needed. Find a leak, really apply some white drops on the people depicting the Chinese levels. Next Regency to take me for us. I can painting first letter. Spain does guy using a diluted color. Your color is nothing, but you take small amount of color on Lord's off water. Don't try and family. Next, we're going to create a great transition affect off color in the lower part of the people. Once we have done this in the bottom, but they're going toe are a little bit off black with drink to get o medal nation. So now I enjoyed the technique required to paint the tiny flowers using lifting techniques , lifting lightning. I'll grab a tissue paper Onda have on the area. I want to live the pains from Make sure the people should be great while you're doing this so you can see I have lived in the colors off from the people. This will leave a white tell fees now the Quintus exercise for Marty Pretty flowers on at this time on leaves with Dr Carlos. So they re long these in details in our last project. It does move on to the techniques required to be in the project. You shouldn't be using various tonal values. All Spain's great. Since it is going to be a monochrome paintings for this guy, we are goingto pain when diluted condo on for the medals you're going to use dark Okelo against create a clear transition effect from lighter being greater darko being all the flavors, we will again use lifting technique. But by having that issue wander being painters office and lifting off the colors from the surface, I have some ratings on flowers, then under stems on leaves. And make that a onion ground. Darko. All right, this was a brief explanation off all the techniques. Now, let us more work. First class project. 4. Project #1 - Sunset Meadow: Okay, so later, Start out. First class project. We're inventor. Surface off the paper with clean water. Apply even coat off water now. Lord, your brush with a local and pain in a circular shape leave imaginary So called in the center. We've been paint on on this area. Apply the pains evenly across the people. - No , I'll make some big toe orange with a law on applied and the corners off the papers. My idea here is to keep the center part. But I don't on the cornice competitively. Knock no. Load your brush with born number and apply this. Make sure on the top most corners giving it a darker look are things of orange yellow and blending it well blended. Even leave with a local or make sure there are no fractures in between. It should be a small transition between law or age and drum. Okay, so I want to keep the center part right. That is a local. So I'm trying to live the colors, but I feel like this little doctor Did you have got a foundation from L'Oreal Stuart Brown ? Then you need not go this next. I'll take some born dumb book on painted at the bottom of the people. Make sure to keep this so say no part, a little lighter in Ghana, because Sundays are falling on this. No take down brush and start lifting off. Brush gently upwards crystal clear off the meadows. The business exercise Also lifting the brush by using dark cocoa. I'm mixing black with boredom you back or expecting the more you can use any black a lot that you have. You need to repeat the same stroke or political times to make my door look fuller and complete. I'm keeping the central idea likely because sundries for lead over this we will pay them all in. Just so what? You have done this like tiny doors in those in this area with orange color. So the light off your big break snugly those and door I had some distance. That's why it does really bright. There's also sunlight falling on. This does not really prominent. No, gradually are the details on the individual grasses on just dives and doors. In between. Predicting the leaves are levels regular, paying this in different directions. Isom touches off yellow and orange in the centre area to replace the extremes on light. - Keep hiding. Their schools are dorks. Until you feel satisfied with your painting. - No . Make sure to pain the bottom off the painting in the local toe. The big shadow off Medo on the top part off the meadows should be done with diluted color. No, I'll take orange color on and and then swiftly know my brush upwards, keeping the center area or invasion cover. - Finally , use white color into carpenter Stransky on those tiny flowers you can use wash on white. But I'm using White White because I wanted to be really from just giving us a look of flowers. This painting is done 11 next class project a different technique off pending medals. All right, you 5. Project #2 - Subtle Pink Meadow : in this top top, we've learned to paint Meadow using lifting technique. Firstly, I'll doesn't face off the people using clean water, applying even cut off water across the people for me. Next I lot of brush were diluted cream some Cano and apply. You don't get to people. I'm trying to create a bladed effect on the people. That is, the bottom should be darker, and the top part should be later in colors. Now I'll take a small amount of black alone, and I played on the bottom where have painted dark red. This will give us a Maroni shade on. It will be depicted as Bashar does. I left like a diluted layer off crimson color on the top part which will break our sky. You can make it doing dark. Good. Okay, so next time you use lifting, pick me to create the flowers in the middle's. We'll grab a tissue on gently dab Bondo, Rachel. Freeze. So this will live the pain from the paper on leave behind a white surface. This might self place will be the victor. As plumbers, we will add the branches and leaves later on. Just make sure that the people is wet while you're performing this exercise. Now take some crimson color, probably diluted crimson color. Stand up. Bring it on Delinda Media. So this will depict the darker level or leaves anyone place some red doors on the center off the white area that we created this woman depicted as little head. - No Ben Dor leaves no paying the names on the stems using Dilute Crimson Cano and as you downwards those camps because you're trying to create a great dirt meadow. Little part is right on the bottom part, and the water park is dark, but it will not want to use a lifting technique. You can use white water colors or wash screams to paint this lovers, but using this technique will give us a certain look in the level I've been painting this temps in using crimson on black. They did with condoms with motion on keeping irregular. All right, I think we're done with this. Let me are some tiny boards.

Make sure your people is still waiting on. We're lifting the pains from the paper and so color, which looks like flowers. This is when our 100 was in court and paper comes into picture. I don't Papa's journal. $25,000 cellulose paper usually dries faster on. You won't be able to achieve the suspect easily so 100% cotton will remain for longer. Better on you can perform any technique that you want. Now take something mental, Kyllo that is being today and applying on the center off those circles that we created.
