What does it parts, and how to paint them in watercolor and gouache style. I will show you what are the differences between styles, which technique you can use. I hope you already. So let's move to next part where I will show you what we have for our today's class and where I will show you how to create texture paper. We need to tap Plus and after setTab plastic, after I 12, parent nine inches. As you see if you have 300 DPI resolution and maximum layers that we can have his view. Tab create. This our today's paper. As you see, this is almost the size of our iPad. Why I changed the size of our paper a little bit today. Because I want to place more botanicals on a paper and create some lovely composition. What we should do is we'll create a couple of new layers. And after that, our next step, we need to export all our previous interests of procreate how it was at. Where guys, when you open my class, please do it in browser. It can be Chrome or Safari. Because if you opened my class in the Skillshare app, my freebies might not be visible. As a next step where you can find all my freebies in projects and sources section in the right corner under the headline resources, you can see all my freebies, your downloads app to say you can find them in downloads folder, in your files app on iPad. Now let's export our paper. You need to APP action pattern, tap, Add and tap answered the file. After Sir, to go to Downloads folder, you will find our papers there. This is our garage paper I've rotated and I will press fit to screen. But you see because the size is a little bit too big of our canvas, we need to move our paper to the edges like this. Okay, Next step, let's duplicate our layer and move blend and layer mode to Linear Burn and Color Burn. I have to say it implicate linear burn one time and merge it together. I have to set duplicate Color Burn and merge it together as well. Next, LavAzza linear burn mode till 50%, like this may be even 55. Okay, great. And don't change the opacity in our color burn mode, it's totally fine. Next to select two layers and you press Group. After that, you need to rename it. You can write paper. Next we will rename one of the layers and we will arrive to paint here. Now let's duplicate this layer a couple of times. Perfect. Thank you. Great. Now the papers graded, guys, once again, pay attention. When you create your artwork, when you paint, please do it on their knees. Our paper layer group. Now I want to show you how to export our sketches into the Procreate. I can't create, as you see you split screen, you place a Procreate app in the right corner and file's app in the left corner. Now I have another folder because I created those sketches, but all your sketches will be in downloads folder. What you should do next, you will just go and drag and drop the sketch here. Interested in Procreate. I'll be able to create one more layer. Turn off this one. I want to drag and drop all the sketches into the Procreate. Because later we're going to create loudly composition. Same you will be as you see this color palette here. And same you've been told is our brushes, you just need to drag and drop it into the Procreate. And it will be in em on color palettes. And it will be M on your brush set instance. You see it says a brush set. I'm ready to show you all the brushes. What oriental dry brush, very cool brush if you want to add some texture and you want to show some lines. Gouache brush, brush. If you have watched my previous classes, you already know what is it? This is amazing brush that can help you to add some gouache texture gouache, look to your illustration. And this brush has some color variations. So it means new each stroke you have. Some dynamic and colors, which is cool. Next book, Raj blender. You can use this brush as a brush and as a blender as well. So how to use it as a blender? You need to tap Loan tab. And now we have our brush set and we have our blue gouache blender. As a blender, you can just blend the colors nicely. The last brush is that it's related to the quash set, if we can say so, his book raining, this brush is amazing. If you want to add some texture to our illustration, brush, my watercolor brush pressure sensitive. And you can control the size and opacity is at edges. I liked brush, both crab and as a watercolor brush that I created. So it also can help you to add some texture, watercolor background if you want to add some shade. So collaborations, brush is perfect for that. Clear. Both scratch, I edit and I created this brush, especially for the vintage look said, we're going to add to our second illustration to our gouache artwork. Dry brush. Great brush is a little bit smudgy, also cool and I will use it for our watercolor art. Monoline. Great for some calligraphy write-ins. Amazing. We're going to use it as well. Flicks native procreate brush. I will add it as splatters in our watercolor illustration. Bored read, rank this stamp brushes will help us to add realistic look to our artwork. And I'm planning to edit to our gouache illustration. Pool pounds release I actually, as you see here, 123455 brushes or his palm tree leaves. And you will have some variations. And you can decide by yourself which way you want to paint a palm tree leaves. This is a first one. And nasa brush. This brush is amazing if you want to add more leaves. Also guys, what I wanted to tell you about the brush set. So as you see this one, brush that is called more palm trees leaves chaotically. As you see when we paint a palm tree leaves, It's not straight like what we have in our last brush like here. If you want to adjust some of the direction of the leaves, you can do it. You go to our brush. After that he will go to the shape and you see we have scattered. When you control the scattered can be straight forward in its fine. You can also say, what else you might do. You can go to Properties, you can adjust the size of the brush. It can be bigger or smaller. It's up to you. The things that I wanted to show you, you can control the size of a tutor. What is it? So as you see around, you don't touch jitters. The leaves have the same length. But when we adjust the size field, maybe 40, 50%, you see some leaves are shorter and sound leaves or longer. I think it can help us. It helps us to add more realistic look to our illustration. It's up to you. I gave you some options. And if you wanted to go to the brushes and adjusted to accordingly to your preferences. We have boundaries. Clear. Next palm tree leaf guys, I will explain you how to create sketches, but if you want to save some time, you can create it by yourself. Or actually you already have palm tree and you can paint it. You can just use my same brushes and start creating your illustration without spending time on paint and sketch. This is a stamp brush such as school. If you want to create some abstract illustration or gouache style illustration, watercolor stamps, if you press harder as a stamp, will be, you'll have like brighter color. Also Whittaker stamp 20. This stamp is cool if you want to add some watercolor texture and I'll show you how to do that. One of my, one of my stamp, and that's it. Now if we move to our color palettes, we have gouache palm tree and you have watercolor palm tree. I will make watercolor pound three. I will set it as a default color palette. So that means when we go to disk here underneath, we will have our color palette. That's very convenient. Next step, if you just want to keep your color palette all the time on your working place. You can just do like this. You have your color palette and it's very, very convenient. I guess we don't need it now, so I will just close it, but later we can use the color palette. I think we are ready. Now. We will move to the next part where I will explain you what as if parts of the palm tree. For our today's class, I prepared for you some pictures that were taken by me and say, can you can use for your own artworks. I hope you've your legs with pictures. And I prepared for you some explanation. These pictures and we some titles of some part of the palm tree and how to explain it to you right now. As you might see here, we have a trunk, this one. And it's elongated stamp. You know what, we have stem in the florals and palm tree. It's just like a can tell this is a big flower, but kind of this is tree trunk, which is called elongated stem. And as you see it has some texture that is very important because when we paint, we also need to show this texture in order to show the realistic look to be as close to the regional illustration to nature as possible. Once again, you can download says explanation and check it later on your own iPad. You might zoom it and see it closer. So this is a tree trunk. Is the next part is Mary stem. What is it? This is a growing point where we can find a pound three fruits, awards. They are coconuts. Next part is the crown of our tree trunk. Its leaves or France, or this one here you might see is a leaf. They're very beautiful as they have different shapes, different directions. Once again, we have the palm tree and that tree trunk is called elongated stamp. This is this one and this stem is very textured. You might see it. When we use watercolor or gouache, we need to show the texture by mixing colors like different colors, one with each other. So as you see, we have lighter part and after darker spot. Again, lighter sport, darker spot. As you see, we have like alliance that horizontal. Later when we start painting, I will show you how to show it on our illustration as a next part, once again, it's called meristem. This is a growing point where we can find the beginning of our leaves and where we can find the coconuts. Next part we have leaves or France said as a crown of our palm tree. Now you know a better word as a part of a pump tree. And I think you're ready to create sketch by yourself. That will be our next part of the class. Let's jump into the next class. 3. Creating Sketch: So guys, for today's class, I prepared lots of pictures of palm trees. Ai expert exam here into the Procreate. But once again, you're going to use them as references and they will be in different place and I will show you later how to export them properly. But because I need big screen, I export them right into the layers. Once again guys, I wanted to take pictures of different palm trees. You might see better that all of them are so differences, so unique. So you might see this as a first palm tree. You see we have the roots, elongated stem meristem, you see the growing point and we have the leaves. Next one. I like this palm tree looks so unusual. You see the tree trunk is so textured. This is another tree and says so unique, so different. Let's move to the next picture is this one. Here you see the merit stamp is brought to his leaves. As a way you see the way how they're growing is so different. So I'll show you, I wanted to show you the difference and you might choose which style, which picture you might like more. I like the style and the leaves of this, a palm tree into color is so unique. I especially like the last illustration, as you might see, it has amazing composition. I decided to choose these two pictures for our today's class. As you see, they're on separate layer. And this is the first illustration. And as you see, I want to paint like close up of a palm tree because I wanted to show properly as a tree trunks, leaves are very special and as you see, we have coconuts and I think it's beautiful also, I like the sky background. This illustration, we're going to use air for our watercolor illustration. The second one, we're going to paint these three palm trees. And I will paint them in Core style. I could've kinda want to add some vintage wipes to our second illustration. And let us do it together. Once again, if you don't like those illustrations, you might use your own pictures. You might use them as references that I prepared for you. It's up to you. I give you the freedom, creativity. I want to see your unique style set you will add into your illustration. Now, I think we are ready to move to creating sketch part. I don't need source reference pictures. I will delete them. I will delete this picture as well, and I will turn on our paper layer. Once again, guys, we will paint underneath our paper layer group. I will move to dark color, almost dark, almost black color. And as a sketch and brush, we're going to use port oriental dry brush. This time I decided to use my own brushes, not native Procreate brushes. But once again, you might use any other brushes that are good for the sketching part. You might choose monoline brush, inker brush, which is also one of my favorite. But I think because we're gonna use watercolor illustration first, I want to combine these brush altogether is our illustration. Let's move to the next part. Now I will show you how to export our references to properly that we can use for our illustration. So we need to go to Actions button. After that, go to Canvas and go to press reference. We need to go to image. After that press Import Image, go to our camera roll and find our preferences that downloaded previously from our previous problems or projects and sources section. Okay, great. You might see we have beaches needed two pictures. We have two ways how to create sketch. This is a first way. For example, I'm going to paint some three drunk guys. You don't need to be accurate. Our aim, because this is watercolor. So our aim is just to show like very sketchy. Zell alliance emphasize their coconut. So they should be here. And as you see why I like this illustration, because this composition is very unique. We don't have the whole palm tree right in our center of our attention. You see part of the coconuts is hidden from us. Along with leaves and the tree trunk. We don't see the whole tree. And this is amazing because the tree trunk is in the center of our attention. It's not distracted by any other objects, which is great. And also, when I took the picture, I tried to follow the rule of golden rice. That means that when we place our object, we don't place triceps right in the center. The more a little bit to the left or to the right side. That means when we look at illustration, it's more pleasant for us to look at zed and it's eye-catching. I'm painting our coconuts, you can so mad, we have all leaves here. You can show it here a little bit. Some coconuts a didn't actually have more and more than four. And try to control the proportions. Maybe it's for us, it might be a little bit difficult. So don't worry. If you think that the coconuts might be a little bit bigger, what you might do, you can go to liquefy tool. And here we have options. You can push it a little. If you don't think that your tree trunk is straight, you can just move it this way. But I think my tree trunk is normal or you can expand it. It means make it bigger. I want our coconuts to be slightly bigger. Push, want to make it bigger. Lexis? Same. I want to make the leaves slightly longer, cool. So we played a little bit with proportions. Now let's paint leaves. Once again, remember we have the special brush for sad. You don't actually need to show it properly. Just schematically show. Whereas they should be located. Leaves are so big. This palm tree, like this. We have one leaf. Second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, 12. This third, 1, fourth. Maybe it's a little bit too far away. Leaf is a little bit far away from us. Once you can see your, You shouldn't be that accurate. Just schematically show the direction of the leaves. Look at this way. Here. Two biggest part of leaves is hidden from us or cave you how long live here? Premises side. How's it pay attention? You need to leave some gaps. In some areas between the leaves. You see, might see some of the leaves, the direction of the leaves is different. So schematically, we showed our pound three. It looks very interesting. If you want, you can make this palm tree a little bit whiter. Go to lick, if I increase the size. Like this. That was the first way how you can create sketch. This is our second pound tree. And another way is I'll show you need to export this picture into Canvas and it should be m. And cell layers. Go to Actions, Add, insert a photo. Next, you need to increase the size of the palm tree of the pictures here. You can turn off the paper layer. Opacity. Create one layer, layer if we have the same brush and you can just trace it. It's very simple. It saves lots of time. You can just show one coconut, shows that the erection of palm tree leaves. Once again, remember said it shouldn't perfect. We're going to turn off the sketch layer later. Of course, if you want, you can keep it, but I think it would be better without that. So this is another option. But I think if you want to practice your painting skills, your drawing skills is better to look at illustration and try to paint it on your canvas. It will help you to practice the skills. And when you do it very often, with each new time, you'd be more and more confident doing zed. That's why what I wanted to do. I want to look at say, illustration and painted myself. I zoom it a little bit. I looked at the artwork. I just schematically need to show us a palm tree leaves. Our aim is to show location Hobbes upon tree show its main parts. And it will be easier for us to paint to start adding some colors when. In this dark paint, also on my thin, as you see, the way how we placed our paper is slightly different. So my suggestion is we can rotate this sketch because as I mentioned earlier, I want to make some gouache illustration with some vintage wipes. And I wanted to make some kind of postcard. That's why it's important for us to find a proper location for them. Have two or more pantries. Once you can look at SAP position, It's a way How's palm tree is growing? You can turn off the first one. Guys, as you see, I started painting it on a new hair. Because later if I want like something, I can just change the position. Because I think that composition might be slightly different. My suggestion don't paint too much palm tree leaves because we will have so many palm trees next to each other. And if you add too much leaves, it might be a little bit messy. For us. It's pretty good. One more tree. It's a little bit tilted, maybe 2530 degrees. Summit. Look at some meristem. It has some coconuts. Yes, part of the leaves are hidden, but you can use your imagination. You don't need to follow. Step-by-step says reference illustration. You can add your black on the region. You see, thanks to the position of the leaves, we can show a little bit of the wind. You see some of the leaves are tilted along visit three. And he'd get help us create some kind of moot to our illustration. Now let's think about the position. This is a main three. It should be like bigger. Now we have told my leaves to my trees behind. That's very important. Try to like stay away from. As you might see, some main trees a little bit longer. I'm going to go to the free form and just make it longer. Be careful because it might affect SAP, affects the proportions. I think I went to make such drink drunk little bit thicker. I know on our picture is not that thick, but when we make it thicker, we will show that say S3 is this is a biggest tree. First TO it's an, a center of our inch. Maybe the part which is next to the meristem can be slightly thinner. Go to the size and push it a little bit. The last palm tree. Go to the uniform. You can use uniform, Youth uniform. And once again, some of the palm trees can be behind, like he sees the leaves. They might go beyond. Our cameras. In my suggestion, you sit down, place it symmetrically from two sides. Two sides from the main palm tree because it would not look at coal. Lexis. Guys, one within, let's just group all our layers. This is the first illustration is a second illustration. We will turn to rotate the canvas when we needed. Also guys, what else you might do if you don't want to spend too much time on creating sketches, you might go grabs the palm trees that I've already created like first 1, second 1. And you might create sad composition by yourself. Place it in a way you want them to be placed and start coloring. I gave you many, many options and choose the ones it is suitable for you. Now let's move to next part. I hope now it's clear how to create sketch. What is it part of palm tree. And we feel very confident and we can move to the next part where we will create a watercolor illustration. We will turn our palm tree sketch into a watercolor art. Let's do it. 4. Creating Watercolor Illustration : Now we're ready to paint watercolor illustration that econo, large capacity of our sketch because that's irrelevant in the future. Now we need it, but later we'll turn it up. We're going to use our watercolor brushes. I will start with his pull up our brushes. I will start peace tree trunk. So guys, if I need to use a scalar palette or should we don't need to put it here? Once again, we are on a layer that is underneath. Our previous layers. Don't forget to turn on the paper layer group because it will help us to have this realistic watercolor and gouache look. If you want, you can have some gaps. Normal. I want to create some loose watercolor art. Look at our illustrations is part of the tree trunk will be darker. Also in areas where two objects and next to each other who have shades. Now I want to add some colors, and later I've blended. Now I want to paint a coconut. I will touch on a new layer. As you see it. I intentionally leave some white eclipse. Last coconut is wonderful. Now let us create, I want to grab this pretty bright grayish color. I will add some color variation to the leaves. Don't worry for now you think I was, the colors is saying, but it's fine later I will add some shades and they look different. Create one more layer underneath. Grab darker color. Next I will create one more layer above. I'm ready to grab our pound three leaves, brushes. I want to grab this chaotically. One. Let me change the color. Pretty bright green color. Hadn't worry later. I want here I will add some kind of make it bigger. I'll add more leaves. You can create one more layer and try not to overlap. Leaves. If you want, you can change the leaf. Next. As you may see, my leaves are very big here. If you want, you can make all of them are pretty big, but also be careful. Remember about the proportions. Make it better. I exist. Let's return, create one more layer. Let me think. Create one more layer. Adds a leaf-like said, Don't worry later we can add some color variations. Like the way it looks now. I want to change it. Maybe I will erase similar leptons. Because as you see it's a tree trunk is clear. We don't have some leaves setup blockings tree trunk. Now let's go to the background color. We will create one more layer underneath of everything and grab bluish color. And the next step, let me grab my watercolor background. Increases size. I want to show. Cars, don't worry later we will have some color variations as well. As a next step, guys, it's very important we need to remove the transparency. Why you should do that? Because as you see when we have the transparency, we have the overlapping and our colors and not clean enough. The affected by the colors it has answered are armed and knees. So our aim is to remove this transparency. One more reason is why we should use it, because if you want to add some shades, color variations, and we need to use Clipping Mask or alpha lock. Our layer, our shapes might not be visible. What we should do, I will duplicate the layer of our background. Go to lower layer after, go to Adjustments, Hue, Saturation and Brightness. And most uprightness to 100%. Merge everything together. Next, I will merge together as the old leaves will be coconuts, and I will keep it that way. And now I will return to the tree trunk. I go to the lower layer, hue saturation brightness, and increase the brightness to 100%. Next, duplicate it. One more time, merged together and merged. So as you see, now, our tree trunk is not dark, which is cool, and it's what we actually need. When we paint. See we don't paint on a tree trunk and it's perfect, It's what we need. But as you might see, this layer, it's still kind of transparent. So I will duplicate it. Go to lower layer, hue saturation brightness. Locate the layer which is white and merge that together. Sam, you see as the leaves, leaves are pretty transparent and you can see it here. You see, we see is a coconut. Now our aim is to make some less transparent. So if you're going to do same procedure, duplicate layer with leaves, go to lobby layer, hue, saturation, brightness, and turn to maximum 100%, duplicate it two times and merge everything together. Now as you see, our leaves are less transparent. Same here. Now our lives are not transparent anymore and we actually don't need a reference picture. I will turn it off. Now, aim is to create a pretty similar compositions that is very related to our reference picture. Once again, like I told you, if you want, we will try to create loose watercolor art. Our lines might not be said. Click obvious. Next step, I want to blend these parts a tree trunk, make it look more realistic, more beautiful. I will go to the tree trunk and I will press Alpha Lock. Why we did set? Because finally press Alpha Lock and we start painting on it. Don't go beyond the lines. I'll show you Example. I grab both scrub brush. I grabbed dark brown color. When I start coloring, you see I don't go beyond the lines beyond the edges of our tree trunk. Same little tube is blending tool. As a blender, I'm gonna use Bootstrap. Thank you. Now if it'll have overlapping says like what we needed to do, we can turn off our Alpha Lock mode. Next step, our next aim, we will start adding shades. How to do it? We'll create one more layer above and I will press clipping mask. And now it's in a Clipping Mask mode. And it's kind of similar to alpha lock because when we paint, we also don't go beyond the line over the tree trunk. But the difference is if you don't like it, you can just turn off the layer and you might not use it, but when we do same in the alpha lock on our original layer, you can just remove what you have done. Neutral stay with you on a layer. So it's very kind of been head and I liked clipping mask. Let's clear it and start adding some sheets. Yep. I have a grabbed dry brush. I want to show as I told you, remember, we have this lines. We need to show the lines thanks to the brush. We need to show says. Texture. And try. Brush works perfectly for Zed. See, some lines are lighter, sometimes a darker. We can show us the lightest part as well. Next thing, what else you might do? You can create one more layer in-between and it's in a Clipping Mask mode. And you can move two multiplies and place it. The top. What does it mean? It's an a Clipping Mask Mode. We steal can go beyond the lines of the tree trunk. But as a difference is, is that when we paint, because it's multiply, it will be darker. Here. If you want. You can go even darker part. And as you see is the lower part of tree trunk is a little bit darker. Like saves his **** and answer, they also have some texture. The same. I'll create one more layer, press clipping mask. Be careful. I will grab this brownish color. I think I went like to move to multiply. I wanted to show the texture. See it amazingly shows a texture that our palm tree fruits have. Perfect knowledge. The end, we still need to add more shades. I'll create one more layer in-between. It's an a Clipping Mask Mode. I go to multiply. And now I will grab watercolor background. Grab brownish color. Be careful because this brush is pretty big. And you can show some shades here. Right in the middle of our coconuts here we have a dark shade because two objects are next to each other, like I told you about where we have shades, you also have highlights, so don't forget, you also need to show some light parts. Also blending tool and blend some sharp lines. I like this brush, it's very natural. I wanted to just say him, he's a tree trunk. I'll create one more layer. Multiply. I want to show me see, Let's make it bigger. I want to show the shade everywhere. Now we need to show highlights. How to do that. I'll create one more layer. On the top. It will be normal. Yellow color and lighter, almost white. Tv shows, they're highlights. It looks very rarely stick. I didn't expect it to be set realistic. Same. Place it on the top. It's an a Clipping Mask Mode. We wanted to show some highlights on our palm tree. I came down with this part. If you want to, you can add even more shades. I'll show you how it does it. I'll merge it together and merge this layer together. Next step I want to show some shades. Clicking Mask Mode on a tree trunk. Multiply grandpa, scrub, brush. And let's change the color to dark one to show a little bit of texture as well. Yeah, it looks good. Append it and then I can't sandwiches our coconuts. Clipping mask. Multiply. Now let's control the size. Unless shows a difference between we need to separate what coconut permanent other. Also show some shade on leaves that are next to the coconuts. Once again, grep blending tool. If you think it's too sharp, comes, they come out very realistic. I didn't expect it to be set realistic really. You can show shades from cell leaves. Wonderful. I have a merged together and merge it together. We've done it with coconuts and tree trunk. Now it's time to add some colors to leaves. I want to make some more realistic also, as you see, we have like the heart of our leaves and we need to start adding it to swell here. Well, Paul brush, edit some stem style. We need to remove the transparency like we did before. Don't worry that too bright now but later I will make some less bright. Plays him and knees like saying is perfect. Next step I went to make our sky little bit more colorful. So how I will do, I will go to grab free hand, select some random areas, upset, go press feather, 12%. Go to hue saturation brightness, and you can play with the colors. With saturation. I want to make it more color like this. Now this guy who look more realistic. Next, next, next, we have our lovely leaves and I want to add more leaves to our illustration. Now I want to merge some of the colors together. Now I want to add a little bit more leaves. I have a graph and nasa color, brighter. Grab four pound tree additional leaves. Going to make it bigger. If I remove some observer leptons are palm trees are leaves a little bit messy. This what we need. Now we'll create one more leaves here. We can flip vertical if the position of leaves is different and removes the part that is overlapping. Same from this side. Create one more here in case if direction is not what we need, but It's good. News, free form. Control it. We can grab eraser as an eraser we will use for watercolor background because it will help us to make our leaves look more kinetic. Core. Now we will create one more layer. Let me think. Yeah, we will take additional leaves. Alex account relieves sparsely Aside where to place it, but as you see it, when you just lift from this side but not from another. This way, people will remove, deletes it's part of leaves. Correct? Selection tool, select the leaves three fingers down. Prescott. In parts of as overlapping says to office, you can just erase an eraser. We will use postgraduate. I think a good credit history. If you want, you can use free-form tool. It makes the leaves a little bit wider. If you want. You can crab, apple brush. I think I've learned to play so sleeves on top, place it on a top coat. I think. If you need to have very like of this slide, tentorial later, to make it better. Let's move to the next part. Merge together, create one more layer. Let's think. Let's add additional leaves. Now let's grab for palm tree leaves sparsely. Let's move. In this part, more leaves here and some leaves in this area. And I think it's great. Now it's time to add some shades. Merged together also leaves like this. And now it's time to add some shades. And now to add some color variations. I'll create one molarity above press clipping mask. Grab bluish color. Go to color, background, increases size, and I will start to add some shades. We can play around, try to add Mach, others. Later. I'm going to blend some of the shades. Next, I'll create one more layer above, clip it off to multiply. Because I wanted to have some darker shades. I will remove some overlap bands. Of course, to create one more layer underneath needs of everything. I think I'll move to multiply. Now let's go to this part. Clip it. Greenish another. Same increases size. Create one more layer. Multiply, pump relook, surrealistic. I think I like the way it looks how nurse had to get her. It's time to add some stamp brushes. I think the question is standard would be more interested in how it would look. I'll create one more layer. Clip it to multiply graph. What kind of stamp 22. I want to show some strokes is. It looks so cool. You are trying to add some watercolor look to this. Guy. Looks amazing. I'll merge it together. After the title go to curves. I can make it brighter. I'll keep etcetera. Saying what I will do. I will go, I will go to the top of all the layers. Move to multiply. Grab greenish color, greenish, green for this one. Same stamp. Now we can add some realistic attach. Like I told her, I wanted to create some loose watercolor illustration. Play these colors. Select Slayer. Think where you want to place it. If you wanted to grab brown color. Create one layer, multiply. Maybe turn to dark. Like sad. In one mole here. Multiply. Because multiply blending layer mode looks more realistic, use free-form tool. Remove the parts that you don't need. The rest just blend. You can grab purple color, bluish, merge together, create one more layer, multiply. And you can show like this guy bleeds into. Their palm tree. I think I went to make it brighter. I think I went to crap pride green color right now. You wear green. Green. Also want to update it. Maybe make it a little bit darker, a pen. Think where you want to buy a summary here. Guys, our illustration is ready. Almost, almost. I forgot about flicks. To buy. Some greenish ones. And now push. If you want to make your way some of them. Let me think. Last part. I'll give you any dark color palette. The last part, what else we might need? We can merge everything together. Likes his new tau reference picture. For now. We can create some kind of frame. You can duplicate it and make it brighter or lighter. Let me think. Merge it together, duplicate one more time. Uniform, not free form. And I want to place it here right in the center. It looks great. Next, if you want, you can keep us at way resource edges or if you wanted to congratulate crop. This one both scrub brush as an eraser and erase. Some like Porter's make it less. Teach tie. Surprise. Makes alliance moralistic exist. Last step, you can grab a dark color. Create one molar above, grab my monoline. Your My Drive like, See you there next summer. See you there. Who've done with our first illustration in watercolor style. And now let's move on to next part and we will have illustration style. 5. Creating Gouache Illustration : Innovation, game quest style. I grouped all our layers related to the watercolor illustration, and I'm going to turn them off. Now. I am on the layer that is underneath of everything. We have our sketch. Let me find it. Yeah, this one. We'll rotate as a paper. Great. Now when you tau reference, picture, tap, Canvas reference. And let's move to our illustration here. Now we need our color palette. Paul and three will be our next color palette, and I will set it as a default. Next, I will place it here. Lovely. I will merge everything together, lower that opacity. I need to grab the new brush, book wash brush. I'm ready. What is cool about his brush? With each new stroke, you'll have different color variations. Also, what is cool about gouache illustration is said, unlike watercolor art, it's not transparent, so you don't need to remove the transparency. Duplicated layers what we did in our gouache illustration. And it is very, very convenient. Style is you might see its different. Also said palm tree leaves. We're going to paint like step-by-step. By using just our brush. We want to use ten brushes you'll want to suppress as a dual using during watercolor illustration. This is cool because this new way how to paint boundaries are always wanted to go to the color path. And this one, I paint everything in one layer because it's more convenient. Now create one more layer because I want the leaves to be paint on a separate layer. Also, like I told you, we're going to paint an illustration of vintage style. And that's why I wanted to use some specific colors for our illustration. I wanted to create some particular color for the background. It felt that our background color, and let's return to our layer. Grab green color, bright one, green color, grab. There's a site of surprise. We can start painting pound tree. Here you have an option. You can draw that line by line. You can just draw us a basic shape. When you lift your Apple pencil from the screen and you start painting again, again, give a half some coloration. It grandpa, oriental dry brush as an eraser. Carefully erase. Great. Now let's add some shades to this palm tree. If you'd like to have an option, you can just do exist. But we need to be careful and try to remove sick gap lines here. Excess lines to be thinner. How place it underneath a palm tree and coconut. Be careful here. Be careful guys. When you need to fill the layer like some object we see color. You need to be sure that you didn't leave any gaps. For example, because if you tried to feel their circle like this, you can't do it because it's not full. But if you make the circle like zed and you feel the air inside, it's possible. Grade. Now the last step, palm tree here. Now we need to create one more layer for the new leaves. We can mix a color slightly lighter. Careful. Clipping mask. Next we need to crab boat tree trunk. Careful. You need to select a color. Once you can see it's in a Clipping Mask. You go beyond two lines. Next we can grab a darker color. A lion. Multiply. Okay, if your thing is this is not too obvious. We can go to the curves and make this line slightly darker. I like it, looks beautiful. Now, we can lobby, set our opacity of our sketch layer even more. I exist. We can keep edit shades, clipping, mask, grab darker color, grade book wash brush. And we can show some shades. Same here. Now we need to create one more layer. Clip it. Now I want to add some shades. Does a tree trunk as well as a shade. Be careful as it stood. The shader we'll be froms left side here a bit. Now I want to show the shade on our coconuts. Be careful how I create one more layer. It's in the Clipping Mask mode. And I'll move tomato SAP, pass it a little bit, maybe to 50%. Here's a blender. I will use book wash planter. I want to make it look more realistic. Flex our palm tree. A very lovely. Now I want to play some shade around the coconuts. How I grab a green color, create one more layer in between. It's in a Clipping Mask Mode. I have him off to multiply. First of all, I want to merge together our shades Yeah. And merged together everything. Create one more layer clipping mask. You can set it as a multiplier. We can keep it that way. Both ways are fine. I will move to multiply. Multiply. I want to love yourself. Basicity, axis. Maybe blended tiny bit, but I don't want to blend too much. Okay, cool. Next I want to show some ground. How I've said. I will grab book rainy. Grabs this. Let me think. Dark green color. Merge together. Merged together this part, I can't now I want, I've emerged together also layers. You see our stem and coconut separated froms and leaves. I want to add some, a little bit more grains. How I will do it? I will create one layer clip. It, moved to multiply again, grab a green color, dark green color. And I will grab book grainy brush. I want to show a little bit shades. Don't press too much. Like said, same I will to visit tree trunk. Multiply. Dark color. Just a little bit. After the lovers are positive. Same pieces, part cave.

Looks also very cool. Next I want to add some greens. Multiply, grabbed Postgres, which I love her SAP BW OS at a little, it says, next step, what I will do, I will select all of it. I will lower set size a little bit. Place it to the center. Now I want to show some porter. Create one more layer above. Let's throw us a rectangle. Once again, our group oriental dry brush draws a line, a tough one finger line is very straight. I'm going to do same frenzy said one line. Same here. Online. As you see, even if your handwriting is not perfect, It's fine. Procreate can help you to draw very straight lines. Like said. We have as a frame, it looks beautiful. If you want to control like a double frame. If you would like. The second frame, I don't want to make it perfectly straight. As you see business frame. I go, I went beyond the lines. I'm going to grab your eraser and erase overlapping. It's eraser. Lexis. Same here. I want to add more texture to the ground here. Create one more layer underneath of everything. Supporter, I will change the blend mode to multiply. I'm going to do with this color. Kagan has great. Now what I want to draw, I will go and grab both simple stamp. I'll create one molar and nice of everything about our background color mode to Multiply. I want to use a stamp. You can use free form. And I want to place a stamp right here. That might be very interesting. Code. Now I want to make the lines a little bit sharper. It'll go to adjustments and press sharpen 100. Now grab selection tool, move to rectangle, three fingers down and icons this edge a little bit. Next step you see we have some of our lessons. I want to grab selection tool, grab freehand. Select, in fact, overlapping. Just move along the border line. After it selects this upper part, three fingers down and press gut. I like how it looks. Still nodes and I want to add more texture. What I will do, I want to create one more layer above grep foo grainy. Move to multiply, increases size, Lexis. I want to add some vintage style greens. It looks very cool. Immerse it together.

You go to lower layer, go to Adjustments, press hue, saturation and brightness, and go to brightness still like to black color to 100%. After sit grab selection tool. And you can move a little bit and creates a shade from our palm tree, which looks amazingly, this is one of the options that you might do. This is still not the end. If you want to come, lovers are positive and in this way it would have been not said pride. But still it will have some kind of shade. I also likes to feelings that it creates. Next I'll grab darker color, grab my monoline brush. We need to add some handwriting. We need to decide where to write it. I think here would be perfect. If you want, you can change the style. You can change the color, make it lighter or darker. I think if to make it dark, it would be better. Guys. You can call this piece finished. I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and you'll learn more about painting in coercive style and watercolor style. And you see a difference between the paint. Once you can, as you see, it's a painted in watercolor style, is more gentle, transparent, and gouache style is more opec. Well, our class camps, does it end?
