1. Welcome to the Challange !: Hello, my name is Christine and welcome to the seven-day watercolor illustration challenge. Each day you will learn how to make one of these wonderful farm animals. You will get step-by-step guidance on how to create them, starting with the drawing and then continuing with the watercolors, you will learn how to mix the primary colors to create interesting nuances. And a couple of tips and tricks on how to define volume. By the end, you will be playing with the contours and give your creation occurred to look with the help of an inking liner each day you will make one of this wonderful farm animals, including a rooster, a wonderful cat, and a happy horse. If you are looking for a creative and fun way to spend your time, this is the challenge you will enjoy. You will have a great time making this simple illustration. With all of that being said, let's go into the challenge. 2. Materials, Tips and Tricks: On this course, you will need the next items, a cup of water to add to the colors are mixing palette, the painter's tape, so you can secure the paper, a couple of white napkins, a brush with a pointed tip for watercolors, step, a graphite pencil for the drawing, and a white eraser and ink liner with a point range between 0.32 millimeters. The base colors, yellow, red, blue, and burnt sienna, which belongs to the color palette called sonnet. And half of one A4 watercolor paper from Canson, which has 300 grams per square meter and a very fine and smooth surface. Now you will learn how to use the napkins and the ink pen to give your illustration more interesting effects. Firstly, take some brown and add it to your mixing palette, and then add to the pellet some yellow next to the brown. Then at the middle, mix them together slowly so it doesn't overpower the brown. Now, take some of the color and make a circle in the middle of the paper. Don't worry about its shape too much. It doesn't need to be perfect. This is done just for the demonstration. Now that you have finished shaping the circle, you will take a napkin and shape it into a bowl. With this bowl, move on the left, top side of the circle and give it a couple of light tabs until the highlight appear on its surface. After that, take some brown and place it on the downside of the shape to create a wonderful ball. Then clean your brush and fatal little the colors between them. So it's surface can appear more smooth. This is all you need to know about how to use the watercolor in this illustration. Now, for the inking step, the liner that was previously mentioned has a tip that can create lines from 0.3 millimeters to two millimeters wide. You can combine the lines by twisting the liner in your hand in order to switch from one whiteness to another. In the case in which the watercolor, It's not dry. And you proceed to move on to the next step. The ink will spread on the parts of the color and its edges will lose their form. If you wait long enough and the paper has time to absorb the color, lines will have even edges and they will not spread on the color. So now you are ready to give life to your imagination. 3. Day 1 - Horse: This time you will make the illustration of a beautiful happy horse. Starting from around the middle of the paper, you will firstly shaped the neck of the horse and the back of the head than from the left side, you will continue the rest of the bag meeting the line from before. Then you will move up to the right and place its left ear and then move again to the right on the top of its head and add a second year from below the left ear, you will go down with the line to shape its cheek. Then from the right ear descent with its forehead. At the end of the two lines, you will draw the muzzle shaped as a little bean, and underneath it you will draw its chin. After that, shaping his chest from the middle of the cheek, you will descend with a line going slightly to the right and then moving to the left. Now you will go to its bag and shape the backside of it tie and then the front part then from the back of his tie go down with a line that sticks out to the left and then continue going down at the end of the leg. You'll place a nice after that traces belly and leave some space for the upper arm. Then descend with a little elbow and the rest of the leg and ending with a nice hoof and then complete the form with another line to the right. Then move to the right and draw the second front leg, leaving from the chest, mirroring the one to the left. Now you will finish the last leg that fits underside, the belly mirroring the one from its left with a big thigh going down from the joint. And thing with the nice who've had the bottom.

You don't need to press too much, as in the video, this is major, so the lines are more visible. You will want to start from the top to make sure your illustration fits nicely on the center of the drawing. Start by placing the tip of its tail on the top-left corner and then go down with a thin tail. And then on its back with a C-shaped line. Then you will draw the front of the back leg and then link it with one from the bottom, shaping a little ankle, and then ending it with its hoof noun that the first leg is done. You will trace its belly going right from the leg and then from near the back leg, you will drop its other with three little U-shaped forms.

Now that you have finished the drawing, you can prepare yourself for the next step, adding color to your illustration for the watercolor step, you will want to start adding to the palate the colors needed to create a nuanced made as a base color for your little cap. So we'll start by adding to your palate a good amount of yellow and then a smaller amount of red next to it. Try to keep your colors separated on the palette, mixing just the amount that you need for the moment.
