Watercolor artist and Pattern Designer



Hello friends! I am Olga Koelsch,  watercolour artist and pattern designer living in Norway.

I started my art career in traditional botanical illustration but later on I focused on modern watercolour techniques and loose painting as it has more flexibility and have a high commercial demand.

I love intuitive painting, free-hand painting that comes organically but nevertheless based on knowledge of colors, techniques and composition rules.

I create whimsical watercolours in delicate painting style combined with bohemian touch and expressiveness. I am also known for transparent flowers illustrations (or X-ray flowers) which are becoming my personal signature.

Being a full-time artist I run profitable shops on E... See full profile

1. INTRO: Hi friends. I will get killed and welcome back to my studio. Today I prepared a very special class. We are going to paint a wild flowers. I know that this is a very popular topic for artists because of diversity of wild flowers and their shapes and their colors and the beauty of our class will be that we are going to paint these flowers, just simple, simple brush strokes. So if it is, you're really first-time when you open your vertical books and took a vertical brush, you will manage. And if you are experienced artist, I would invite you to give it a try and try this loose technique because it's very mindful painted, It's very relaxing painting and I hope you will like it. And as a result of the class, we are going to arrange flowers in a beautiful reef, which you could use for greeting cards, for Easter cards, for some wedding invitations. So many things you could do. You could paint with wild flowers. So let's start. 2. Tulip: For painting to live, I prepared very super diluted mix of quinacridone rose. And we, the tip of the brush, I start to shape the BOD of our future to live. And while I'm doing this, I remember that two lips, petals, they have very glossy, very glossy texture. And I could emphasize it, or when I add, when I leave some white space. Right now, at this moment, it's important to water vapour for rolling and shape. Pretty, pretty BAD. About this. Now I switch to another brush and grab a little bit bolder mix, and I start to add these bolder mix in the bottom, the BOD, and just let it all flow by itself. Around this area, I am thinking about. There will be two tulips or two petals overlapping one another. And I add a little bit of shady area. To emphasize this. I dry my brush. And with the tip of the brush, I distribute a little bit all the bold colors for when the shape of the BOD. And this very special thing about tulip, very recognizable is that they have very sudden middle wine in each petal. So I, first, I made out this area with the tip of the brush. I just drag out the bold color to the sides. And that's how I imitate these, these small, tiny little lines. I keep adding details into them. But it's nice to add some little drops and dots to make the bot little bit more intricate, little bit more interesting. But try to remember about these middle. It's even fine to add a little bit more if you see that the colors vanished slightly. So you just keep adding into this area. Now I will grab the fruit brush. But of course, if that's more convenient for you, you could just watch one brush, grab another brush. I, I really liked to jungle with brushes. And I grab my green mix. It's fallow green and see Anna 0 recipient. Because I really like when colors are mixing by themselves. So I don't do anything extra. I just leave the green color, move into the pink one. I would say our, our tulip is almost done, but of course would be nice to add some greenery. I dilute my mix. A bigger brush. And let's create a nice low leaves. One. How I paint leaves. I start with a tip of the brush. Then I apply maximum pressure on my brush. Make some curves around, and then I release the pressure. And I really like when my brush makes these fluffy edges, I think it looks very natural to imitate these faults on the LEA. I go with the second time on the same area, but just on the half of this. It's also nice to add a little bit more dark shades inside these areas. Let's repeat. First mix a darker shade and then you paint just half of the leaf. Really, apply the pressure, release the pressure. And that's how our fold wars was achieved. We could add few more strokes, few more details to the leaf. Wash your brush a little bit and software, some areas often some details, don't overdo it. This is it. 3. Daffodil: Another popular Spoonflower is of course, daffodil. And that's a tricky one because it's yellow and yellow color are considered to be rather complex in watercolor because it's difficult to create shades. I prepare two mixes. This is bold yellow, this is transparent yellow, very diluted yellow. I start with diluted. We've diluted. I map out the middle of daffodil with some round up, round stroke. I paint petals says I usually do starting with the tools, raj, applying some pressure off the brush and bring them relatively transparent. Yellow to this round point. I like to leave a lot of white areas. It usually makes flowers very shiny, very bright, and very contrast. So right now, I create the outside part of the footing. If, if you're good with geometry, you have to think a little bit of perspective, because now we'll look at our daffodil from little bit of side. And you somehow need to imitate these. I like freehand painting. That's why I kind of not very much bother about this. I outline the middle just for, alright, for now. To see where should I place the other leaves, the other petals. I just place them around. You see sometimes I apply pressure. Sometimes I paint just with brush strokes. What is nice to add a lot of variety. So some very bright somewhere a little bit in the shade. And if you feel e.g. it's a little bit too dark. Wash your brush, dry brush with a paper towel, and lift a little bit to the color. Just like this. Now, Let's go to our bold watercolor. It's still the same cadmium yellow. Cadmium yellow. And you see how differently it looks like. It's suddenly very bold. And we got our nice contrast between yellow colors, but it's the same, exactly the same color. It's just cadmium yellow without anything extra. Another trick is to add a drop of orange color to your yellow mix. I might do it later on. This is very curvy, beautiful. Part of just apply your imagination and create something nice here. It's one, the top part of coal. And now we'll paint the bottom part of the coal. Some wavy free hand moves. About this. I would like to wash my brush and correct few things. For me. This part looks a little bit too dark, so I lift strokes. Now, the complicated, now comes the complicated part. This part is the darkest spot. Now, I would like to add cadmium orange into my yellow mix. But just a little bit, I do not want to look at, I will look on nature and to write daffodils very, very tender. And we would like to recreate that. So I think more. I would call it cheapen moves. I dry my brush with a paper towel and remove some times I remove some excess watercolor. To create these fluffy, maybe beautiful texture. I would like to add just a line, just a shade on this part because sun shines from the top. And this is the darkest spot. With we have a snow storm and I'm paid his bring flowers. It's it's a little bit co-ops and feeling. So let's paint a green stem mix of phthalo green and burnt sienna. To paint a try it. Let's make imaginary line our stem. And then we need to always nice to add some curves to the stems and let add some green cross green leaves around. It would be nice to add some greenery right on the top of the flower to emphasize the contrast. With my slightly orange mix of cadmium yellow and cadmium orange. I would like to add few tiny strokes to some metals in them. In the central part where the petals connects to the middle. Just like this. And I remove a little bit of code. Here. We have it. 4. Hyacinth: For hyacinth, I prepared very diluted mix of cadmium orange with tiny little strokes. I'm shaping the top of a flower. And step-by-step, I add quinacridone rose. And when necessary, I remove the excess water from my brush. That's how I'm softer. Softer than the colors. Because they are very, very, very tender. And we need to start to paint them in a very, very diluted way, e.g. basis to write. And I keep diluting my pink mix. If you e.g. will choose to paint hyacinth in blue color, purple color, which is also very super popular. You just do the same tricks but with purple column. The more we go down from the top to the middle part of the flower, the more evident became of them. Small little flowers, the small little bars in the entire scene. So from around this moment, I start to shape, to shape the flowers. Usually they have six petals. Each small flower has six petals. I do not right now, I'm not going into details. I'm not doing that very precise, but I keep in mind that amount of petals. I, I would say I'm mapping out the future. Flowers. Of course, keep in mind that all small little flowers, they're overlapping. And sometimes we can't really see all six petals. Sometimes we could see only one or two of them. But it would be nice if you could show a few, a few flowers which are very similar to the original. And now I grew up a little bit of bolt quinacridone rose just on the tip of the brush. And while my paper is still wet, I add tiny little dots in the needles of these flowers. I like to do it when paper is still wet so it could be very softly, tenderly diluted. I wash my brush. I dry my brush with a paper towel. And in some areas, I drag out these darker color into the flower. Very gentle. Just with the tip of the brush. I drag out these bold color and sometimes even soften the edges. Always wash your brush and go again. No need to emphasize all the petals. It would not look natural, but you could add a few strokes to each. That will be really, really, really nice. So we could paint a little bit more, go a little bit down with this group. Imagine the shape of the flower, I think our cluster and about this area. So we need to, we could add a few big flowers on this area. What I'm painting, it's just two strokes. It's not saying I won't go into details. It's just arranging brushstrokes. Sometimes I'm overlapping them one with the other. Keep in mind that once we're going more to the stem, the Beagle, the Beagle, the petals are, the bigger the flowers. To make it easier, I just switch to another brush for bolder colors because it will save our time. And I add this middle. Middle drops in-between. I switch to the other brush. It's a dry and clean brush. And I drag out a few brush strokes from the middle to the tips of the petals. Once I feel that it's getting too dark, I just washed my brush again. Go again. I could add a little bit of water. We just, it's just water to the flowers which are dry already and drop again. The bold color. In around. Now, it would be nice to add some contrasts. I prepare a little bit bolder mix of quinacridone rose. I will mix it with that orange with cadmium orange. Just to make it a little bit a little bit warmer the column. And I would like to add a little bit darker color in between the petals. Just very few spots. When I switch to my clean brush. So often. You see how light or light pink flowers popped up. That's what we were looking for. Just a few details in-between. Now, we could set our flower on a stem. For stem, we use our mix of green and burnt sienna. Little bit more. Stems usually are quite bold or quite thick. But anyway, I prefer to paint them in more tiny way. And of course we have to add some green leaves. How I paint leaves. I start with the tip of the brush. I apply some pressure, and then I release the pressure. And same on the opposite side. Some pressure. Release the pressure. I would like to add few more light flowers at the bottom. So it will look more like maybe fuel, darker, darker petals. And right away, I add bolder color tool. For our centrals. We could go back to our, to the leaves and add some details. Just the tip of the brush I go leaf. And that's how I create them forward. So I'm painting over just to hop off the leaf. And that imitates the folding, the fold of the leaf. I could add a little bit of green color around the area of a stem to make it neutral. As we paint with watercolors. Always nice to solve ton everything. To let watercolor mix in a very organic way. Um, I think these green spots are two greens. So I take clean to clean paper towel, remove the excess. Unnecessary greenery. Tiny little details. Oh hi, things is ready. 5. Crocus : For nice purple color of Gropius's, I mix with tremor in blue with quinacridone rose. And if you've arrived, the amount of both, you could get very, very different trades. So I load my brush with my purple color, and I keep my hand in about 30 degrees to the beat, will start with the tip of the brush. Then I apply pressure and release the pressure. That will be the point where petals connect to the stem. And I paint a second petal. First we're painting the front petals, which we could see from our, from our point of view. Same procedure, tip of the brush, belly of the brush. Bring down to that very point. Now I will add a little bit, just a little bit of ultramarine blue for the variety of colors. I paint. One more petal, slightly side tip of the brush, belly of the brush. And I mix them, I mix them all together. Help a little bit with the tip of the brush at some details like this. Now, I paint the petal, which is on the very back tip of the brush, belly of the brush. And I released the pressure in the bulb daily when it touches the front petal. And I add some details with it. The brush and the last, the last petal should be, I think around this area, very small one, we can't really see it. So I painted with the tip of the brush. I switch to another brush. So I use cadmium yellow to mark the middle with the tip of the brush. I imitate some of these hormones in the middle. I let everything mix. Then I switch to green color. For green color, I use my mix of green and burnt sienna. I connect my brush, bring my brush to the same valley point. I even touch a little bit. Every eye blink Dog. Pain. I paint the stem. Um, it looks a bit lonely. Let's paint a few more with the same style, but I would like to add a little bit more of ultramarine blue for the variety. More pressure, this pressure, more pressure on this brush. And we bring everything to one point. And more pressure, less pressure. A little bit more bold blue. One, petal. Mix, everything. And the background. I wash my brush slightly. This treatment down the columns, I got everything. I have green color loaded already, so I just proceed and paint another step. And at the same time, I will paint these leaves of Caracas. They looks like grass, and it's very easy and pleasant to paint. You put your brush on the tip, on the tip of the brush, apply just a little bit of pressure and curves and then let it go. I would like, right now, I would like to add yellow yellow pot. Poland's side. I see now, I I'm not really happy how yellowish it looks like now. I dry my brush with a paper towel and I go along this top petal and just leave everything. Now we have a very precise, precise petal. Let's paint. Another brush will release the pressure. Backside. One petal. The petal. Petal. Bring everything to one point. Now I have, what do I have? I have yellow. So I could paint Pullman. Then I wash my brush, grip, green color, stamp, and some gross looking leaves. Grow quizzes already. 6. Snowdrops: Snow drops are white and white is a scholar for watercolor because we do not really have white. We have just white paper. So we paint in gray. And I would ask you not to use a diluted black color. Always. It doesn't look artistic. Let's mix ultramarine blue with cadmium orange. And I'm doing this, we will get our pleasant, transparent, grayish color. Let's start. This will be zero point, just mark the point with this will be the point where the bot connects to the stem. With the tip of the brush strokes. It's the front petal. I met. Then I wash my brush and I dry my brush with a paper towel. And I softened inches. And I always do it in one direction from the beginning of it. And I will not finishing, I'm not outlining the petal. I leave a small white area because it will be the lightest area of the petal. Now, I grab another portion of gray color, comeback to that point and map out with the tip of the brush, another petal. Wash my brush, I dry my brush with a paper towel and I soften the edge. And in the same time I'm creating the second petal. Just like this. Again, gray color. I come back to the same pole. To that point. I create some curvy line. I've washed my brush. I soften the edges, and I create some grooves round. We will add more details later. No worries. Sound very small, tiny backside, background. I basically I'm painting right now with dirty slightly due to water, which is really nice. And that's why I recommend not to wash your blood's too often because perfect gray colors usually I write on your palate. So now we need to bring it in vitro. Make sense to all of these. I prefer mix of green and yellow until I'm happy with the sage green color. I paint. This green part. I forgot hold calls or calls where the BOD, the flower connects with the stem. I painted stripes. I wash my brush and I lift a little bit of color on the top very carefully. Then I left out with the tip of the brush. I map out their stamp. Of course, if it feels easier for you, you could paint first some outlines with pencil and then go on the top. I grab a little bit of diluted green mix and paint these top leaves a little bit pressure and then release pressure from i with the tip of the brush, I mark the moment when the leaf connects to the stem. Now I grab a little bit darker color and emphasize this ten. So basically I go again along the same, the same line. I could add some details. Some lines, some connections, and some green foliage, which are inside our lovely snowdrop. Now let's add a few small, tiny little details. The most bold white colors in the point where the bot connects to the greenery part. So I apply extra gray color just to that area. Just to that area. And I take a little bit of very, very diluted gray color and paint a shade. So I'm not touching all the, all the petals. I leaned a little bit to side and that's how I, how I create the fall scene with the background petal. Add a little bit of shade, and then soften it with a tuple from brush. I would like to repeat the trick. This petal. To emphasize a little bit. Then fold of the petal and some details to the front. Petal, just with the tip of the brush. 7. Helleborus: For painting hullabaloo, I need a very bold mix of green and burnt sienna. And the same mix bought super, super, super diluted. But also I need a cutting cadmium yellow to map out the middle. Just with random brushstrokes, you create the middle, leave a lot of white areas in between. Now I change to a bigger brush and I load my brush with diluted green. And I start from the middle. I drag out the color from the middle. So I grab a little bit of yellow and mix it with green and create the first battle. With the tip of the brush, I add some crispiness and details. Little bit around. Next level, it will be underneath the front one. So I start to paint from the middle of that bedroom. In principle, it looks like I paint too bold, bold, bold outlines. And then I add some details into it. Just with the tip of the brush. So very loose, very, very free hand. And why are we doing that? Because elbows has very suddenly middle wine. And instead of painting the middle wine with a bold color, I leave white area. Emphasize it. That's the other way to shore up the petals texture. I think it's nice to know different options, how to, how to do that. A lot of white in the middle and details with the tip of the brush. Sometimes you could, sometimes you could load your brush a little bit of bold color, but right now, don't overdo it. So the fifth, the last petal, it a little bit shorter because it looks on us and it's global. It's this petal closer to us. And it slightly for same principle, I little bit drug out the yellow. I create lines, I create details with the tip of the brush. And I remove excess water with a dry brush, just lifting up the color. Now, I grab bold mix on the tip of the brush. And I go around this lovely yellow and it looks like I'm painting underneath the yellow pollen anyway. Now you could see how the yellow part suddenly lifted up and it feels like it's really a big bulk of yellow here. Try to do it very random. Leave a lot of whitespace. In-between. You could take your small brush, just wash it, dry it out. You could distribute some bold green parts. These strokes, bringing them into the petals. Add some shades, some wines, some texture. Above. It's about like this. No need to be very precise. A little bit. Dots and spots around. Small, little tiny dots in the middle. To emphasize. And I switch again back to the ball of bigger brush. I tried to find where this term I paint the stem. I paint very, very roughly. I'm just trying to think how it will look like for me. I need slightly bolder caught mix, so I quickly and quickly exit. Green leaf. 8. Muscari: Muscarine have a cone shaped cluster of flowers on a loan or tiny stem. Usually the top flowers, they're a little bit greenish as they did not blossomed yet. I paid them very, very diluted green column. It's my leftovers of my green mix of green and burnt sienna. I leave a lot of wide space here and there between the strokes to add crispiness, the tip of the brush. And once I'm going down, I start to add ultramarine blue to the greenish area. First of all, to make these gradient slightly softer, slightly smoother. And also I apply more pressure to them. To my brush. Then scary flowers. They looks like small little buds connect very tight, one to another. So I tried to emulate that. And I leave white areas, white paper between. I increase the volume of my cone and IVY, the color. Now I was a little bit in the middle because it looks a little bit of green and it's a little bit propulsion. Now I paint with ultramarine blue. I apply more pressure to my brush. And at the very final flowers, small little buds, I add more and more details. The body itself, they look, they look like these small, small coal, the middle. So I little bit emulate that ceiling. I add. Sometimes I just go directly to my palette and grab some bold, very bold, which from marine blue. For the contrast. With the tip of the brush, I create these rounded areas. The more contrast you have in your flower, the petrol, and Scurry. They are darker to the bottom, docker to the bottom. That's what I'm trying to emulate here. It's quite relaxing to paint was Cory's. Uhs. In principle, you paint, brush stroke, just brush strokes. Then wash your brush and load your brush with the green column. It's a mix of green and burnt sienna. Find. Now it's important to find the right position for the stem. And to do that, you just fold imaginary line from the top. And bell curve. Maybe it makes sense to add a little bit of thickness to this stem. Looks a bit more neutral, so I go along the same stem with a second stroke, just applying slightly more pressure. I could add few more leaves. They also then look like. So with some pressure in the middle is nice. And I will add a little bit more darkness to this ten. Divided from the cross, muscarine is ready. 9. Primrose: For painting Primo I prepared cadmium yellow for the middle. With the tip of the gosh. I just create something looks something looks like a sunshine. It will be the middle. I wash my brush and I take Alizarin crimson, and I start to create the second layer. The second layer flower. Now I paint in some clusters. It's important to remember that Primrose us, they usually have six petals. Now, I'm painting in six clusters. Should not be too precise to geometrical. Just to keep in mind the amount of six. I, sometimes alone, yellow color mix with Alizarin crimson again helps live and help a little bit. Sometimes I leave white space for the variety. I switch to a bigger brush. I wash my brush, dry it a little bit with a paper towel. And now we're going to paint petals. What's the feature of primrose is the battles. They have these heart-shaped petals and that what we have to keep in mind. So I start with the top one. I press my brush, I made some round. Just imagine like a paint hot. Then another side, I draw out the coal, the pink color, bring it to the hot shape. And now with a tuple to brush some details. I could drag out a little bit to the car from, from the petal, from the top. To emulate the vines. I wash my brush after each and every petal I've washed my brush. And I create gain half of the hot wash my brush. We need to know that half of the hot add some details. The tip of the brush. In principle, I just distribute that pink material, which I already have here. I've washed my brush. I drove up the color from the middle. Half of the heart. Another half of the heart. I try to reward, my heart's beating too symmetrical. I'm trying to add some fighting. Each and every wash my brush off to every hot or even after every half of the heart. I washed my brush and dry it with a paper towel. When I drag out a column like this and leave a lot of white space, that makes, that creates this very crispy contrast feeling. Which have very much like now. Calm. The petals. It's a little bit distribution of color. Wash my brush. And the last one, sometimes it's the PayPal bought. It's better if you don't train your wrist more flexible and paint from one angle, it just requires some practice and then you do that. So in principle, our primrose is destroyed. It's a little bit too pale. So I take a green, I prepared a great mix. It's green and burnt sienna. I like these sage green thing. Whether tuple for Bosch, I think the middle, the middle of the flower. Now a small step just with the tip of the brush. Small curve is stamped. Try to avoid range. Just lines. And I would like to add at least one green leaf. First, I mapped out the middle, why? The stem like this. And then I switch to a bigger brush, bigger brush. I grew up with my color. I press my brush. I create wiggle, wiggle, wiggle moves. Lift a little bit to the brush. It will be the moment where the petal turns. I proceed from underneath the petal with the same wiggle, wiggle, wiggle. And I reduce the pressure and come back here. You could add some details now or later on. It depends a little bit on your paper. For me, I better not to do it now, let's repeat with the other with the other leaf painted a little bit differently. Let's start from the top of the paint off the leaf. I apply a lot of pressure to my brush. It's almost the whole body of the brush. I just freely wiggle, wiggle, wiggle along the middle. Why I would use the pressure. I come back to the opposite side, stamp, bent a little bit, another part of the leaf. That's how we create these folded leaves. 10. Lily of the valley: The tweaking with painting lily of the valley. Firstly, that leases or very tiny flowers. Secondly, that they are white. And painting whitewater color is always a challenge, but we will manage. I start my painting with mapping out future stems. Just with the tip of my brush. No need to be super precise. For green color, I use cobalt green. Hi range. I prepare everything for painting, flowers, for painting white little barbs. And Firstly, I chest with Baer, nice, I would say less for them. It also reminds of decorating a Christmas tree when you have first step and then you will just bubbles on the branches. So now we prepare, ring that area. Now, I wash my brush and I prepare a green mix. It tastes the same cobalt blue with a hint of quinacridone, rose, and a little bit of ultramarine blue or everything, actually, everything from your palette. I would insist that you would not use a diluted black color for your paintings? Slow, little bit dirty. So I mentioned that my son shines from the top from left side to the right, which means bonds has lighter area on the left side, darker area on the other side. I dry my brush and clean my brush and I could remove the excess dark color if necessary. I usually paint very small brush stroke on one side on the sun, sun shines side. And a darker brush stroke and bigger. Just moving slowly. From top to bottom. Paint tiny little flowers. No need to, to watch attention to details. You would just bringing everything to shape. One idea. And again, it's fine. Brush strokes on the left, darker brush stroke on the right. Some curvy lines on the bottom. Just to bring the idea of the bond. It's nice when you could manage to drag out a little bit of green color. Once it feels too dark, just remove this darkness, dark column. Usually watercolor paper allows you to make a lot of corrections tooling to bring your painting. And so first of all, it works just wave clean and damp. Brush. Finish this branch. Small, little tiny dots. I edit a little bit more of a yellowish color to this, to this branch for the variety, for some contrast. This is greenish, similarly, gently, gently rename. Our branches are ready and now it's nice to bring some greenery. I switch to a bigger brush, bigger brush. I prepare lot of mix of cobalt green. This is just cobbled grill. Or you could mix e.g. phthalo green with ultramarine to get these bluish sage, sage green. And I start with the tip of the brush and paint one half of the leaf and load my brush again and start with the top. Go back. I tried to leave a small white area between these two brush strokes. To emphasize the middle wine. You could dry your brush and remove the excess. Just with the just like your brush. One more leaf would be nice. I buy a lot of pressure and then I reduced the pressure. What if you'd like e.g. to overlap two port or leaf underneath the fall, which has gently do that. It's like you first paint with a brush stroke and then with the tip of the brush, you update you correct a little bit to the shape and enlarge the shape and move the leaf underneath of the flower, e.g. it's nice to add a little bit more contrast. That's why I grab a green color. Bold variables right from the bullet. And first thing I want to emphasize a little bit, stamps. Also, it's a good moment to correct some some stamps. This moment, always nice to add. A little bit more of a darker color until the tips of the leaves. Live with Moodle. Once you add a little bit more shades around Wildflower, it will really pop off. Forget about that. If we paint and bold brushstrokes, brushstrokes, chest alone, then it will imitate the fold of a flower. And this is it. 11. Fritilaria: A free tool. Every flower I use a mix of Alizarin, crimson and burnt sienna. I find the spot where the bot will connect to a stem and with relatively diluted color with the body of the brush. I paint petals. Free to Lori, has quiet geometrical structure. And I tried to emulate that just with brush strokes. So I create a wreath brush strokes, which book? Which forbade from top to bottom. No need to be very precise about that. That's all right. Right now, I would like to add a hint of blue mixed with Alizarin, crimson. Add more darkness. And now the fun part with the bold purple, which is a mix of Alizarin crimson and ultramarine blue. It should be very, very bold. I create these check texture. And as the First Lady is very diluted and the second layer is very bold. In principle, I took it right from the pellet. It creates this nice, organic, organic looking spots which are a lot of flowing freely and mixing. We have a little bit of control right here. Also with the tip of the brush, we could slightly divide node battles, emphasize the ribs, some some details and shades. Now, checking my brush and use green mixture of green and burnt sienna to stem some of connections. And it's done. 12. Bouquet : The fun part, painting of single flows is of course to arrange them into. I would like to start with daffodil with yellow, with cadmium yellow. I map out the central, either go around with cadmium orange and create them orange middle part. Then I switch to the yellow color and paint the petals as we did in the tutorial with daffodils. I remember that daffodil has six petals. I want to paint them very, very diluted. So I often wash my brush, dry it with a paper towel, and remove the excess water. I leave a lot of white space. I've arrived pressure on my brush. I very much like when colors from the middle mixes with the petals. So now, oh, now I have just the last one. It's a very common thing. When you paint, you're in the process and you suddenly paint the seventh battle to your, to your daffodil. That happens. Count the pebbles. In next flower I would like to add would be coffee. It's our mix which we used it some ultramarine blue and Quinacridone Rose. I would like to make it a little bit more on blue side, on purple side. So I will add a small clusters, small tiny clusters of muscarine right next to our defaulting. I, again, I wash my brush and I remove the excess dark color. I want all the kids be very, very supreme, very soft, very light, etc. etc. Now let's add a crocus, grow slower. Front petal, very, very diluted front petal. I leave, again, I leave a lot of bite area. And I combine painting with the tip of the brush with the bulging of the plush. Always nice to add some contrast for glucoses. It's the orange to orange and I just leave it, leave it flow. Also, it's possible to add a little bit of greenery right away, to scurry, to cocos. Very tiny, very, very loose painting, very loose. Right now we could add, you could add a primrose. Good will look very great. Very nicely. Next to daffodil, yellow middle, some hot looking petals. I hope you really like this tweak that really helps to paint. Primrose is when you think, then you think about painting hearts. I almost do not take colors from my basic palette. I use everything what is in on my, on my, on my plate. And that approach creates the consistency of your whole composition. There is no risk that you will use some new cover, some weird color which is not intrude into all in your arrangement. So as I always recommend to not wash your pullets until they're really, really worked out all their potential. So primrose, what's next? Let's paint a little bit of the wildly Here would be nice to add a small cluster of the valley. I start to paint for them with the stem. Then something something grayish, imitating white. As you remember, we do not paint white. We paint with mixes. And the tiny little secret. It's very convenient to make some beautiful gray mix, again from your unwashed late unwashed palate and bought these. I do not go into the details with the book kit. I could add a little bit of greenery around. Very soft, very, very soft consoles. Have a look. I think it would be nice to add samples some sense. It's, this word is really not that easy to pronounce correctly. I paint loose cluster. I remember that it has six petals and it goes tinier and tinier and smaller. Once I go to the top, I I'm not a big fan of poor yellow color, pure yellow color. That's why I add more orange of permanent orange, cadmium orange and orange. And while the paper is still wet, I will add few tiny centrals, just small, tiny little drops. Now let's add something more bold. Weeks. Roles with ultramarine blue. B, B, B, B, sum. I paint tulip upside down. You might find it, I'm convenient and it's very tempting to turn the filter, which is all right. But I would like to challenge you a little bit and try to buy it upside down. Why? Because the cost of all your wrist. And secondly, each creates more neutral moves of all the elements which are in the bouquet, the composition. Just about this. Now, let's add some greenery. We could rely our greenery. Little bit more pressure, a little bit less pressure. Remember the different flowers they have different greenery. Looks sample. Some leaves could be more rounded. Some leaves could be long. Just looked like graphs, e.g. next thing I would love to aid right here. Let's see what we do not use yet. Maybe another query. Query element. Slightly bluer. It wouldn't be nice as it would be nice to add something to this side. So I painted upside down, you see course, you could turn the paper. That's not necessary. I've washed my brush and I and I soften the edges. Soft and all the painting. Some areas I leave. Some areas I leave almost vanish, almost removed from the paper. Some green leaves. When you need an aspiration for a bouquet, of course, you could either arrange yourself or Lot of inspiration I get form. Floral shops or floral Instagram websites. Florists there really knows how to combine flowers and they're great with color schemes as well. So you could get ideas of which flowers on combining nicely. Subscribe to some Instagram floral channels. Visit some Photoshop's. I like everything. What we're going to solve for Little drop. I think one small drop, drop snowdrop would be very nice right here. Getting gray color, which is even diluted, even more diluted. And connect with the green stem. That's green details. As you see, I read the book, yeah, when painting a bouquet, I do not go too much into details because otherwise it would be too complex. Disturbing. Tabled like to it to bouquet is different types of greenery of green leaves. I use my brushes. In principle, I use similar brush strokes to everything and everywhere. Sometimes I paint more rounded shapes. Sometimes I paint more tiny details. Clusters of flowers. Little bit weird what, what's happening here. But we'll add some purple so you see it's very easy to fix everything with watercolor colors, and now we have a nice light here. The last thing I would like to do is to bring some, a little bit more attention to their middle board. Warm the body. Usually if you look at daffodil from right from the top, you could see the inside of the flower pollen area. So I just add a little bit more of details. Just a little bit. I again, I do not I do not go too much into details, but I would really like our the focal point. All the composition. And last thing I do, I go a lot, robbed. The petals with a darker color. It's difficult already to say what is in there. It's mostly cadmium orange, but soft and quinacridone rose. Small, tiny little details in just a little bit. Please be very careful. It's very tempting to start to add and add and add more and more details. No need, no less, a little bit. Emphasize really tiny green. Always, always nice to add a little bit of details but very gentle and not to each and every flower. Soft and everything with clean, clean down the middle. You see after each and every bold stroke, I've washed my brush and I dry it with a paper towel and soft and everything. I would like to paint one tiny green leaf. To finish the composition. Add a little bit more of very dark, very bold green strokes. Contrast for diversity. And this is it. 13. Final thoughts: Thank you so much for joining my class. I hope you enjoyed the process, which is the most important thing. And I'm looking forward for your feedback. Which flower was the most complicated to paint? Which flower you liked? Best of all, maybe which flowers you would like to pick next. I encourage you to paint as much as you like and bring these exercises, always lessons into practice. And looking forward to see your beautiful pictures. See you next time. Bye-bye. 14. Join my Membership!: Hi friends, I'm going to be killed. And I welcome you to joy, to my membership. I know that we all somehow at different stages of our painting skills and that's fine because I split my membership classes, my membership offers into sudden bundles. And you could start either from the very, very basic steps and then short-time get to another step and then to another step. And as my favorite thing, we could paint together complex botanical illustrations or loose floral compositions. It, somehow, it takes time to realize what you're more into, either into loose painting or some more precise painting, it's okay to give yourself a try. And another thing I would like to stress out that most of my classes, you could stop at any moment, e.g. when a baby cries or dog needs to go out. So really at any moment and heavy, just 15 min daily practice. Good. Bring you into really nice progress with watercolor painting, withdrawal away, anything basically. So I invite you to try out free classes, to try out churn membership, e.g. for a month and feel how how does it feel here. So I hope you will like it and we could make, we could create a really nice together. I hope I see you there. Bye bye.
