Okay, so gather all your acrylic art supplies and join me inside the class. 2. Art Supplies: Hey, this is the brushy. Welcome, welcome to the class. So let's start by getting to know all the supplies that you'll be needing for today's class. So for this class, I'm going to be working on a 9 by 11 inches canvas board. I have a plate to mix the colors and a glass of water. Get to a couple of brushes. So for this size canvas, I pin this side. Staying flat brush is going to be perfect. And I'm also keeping our size a little smaller size. I think this is a 6. Just a handy if I need to add this amount of famed in any of the places. And I'm being too round brushes for creating the branches and stuff. So that's all for the brushes. Brushes for the time being. And the final thing that we need is the beat. So again, I'm going to be using fluid acrylics for this class. And a fellow Sunni are black and white. Very important colors. Now, cream and chrome, yellow. So I got a couple of questions from you guys in my last class. That was the name of the sheet. So the name of this sheet in a biblical actually banned from where I buy from the name of the sheet is darkly. That's the mean. And this is chrome yellow. And along with that, we're going to need love rounds. So that's it. It's a very limited color palette. Vary the dawns, shades and the, this, we're going to create multiple shades of colors for this painting. Okay? Now, if you want to know what brand I use, I use PV prophylactically colors, which is from the brand Pedialyte. I created a YouTube video because it's the most commonly asked questions which brand colors I use for fluid acrylics and how do I store in bottles like this? So I filmed tutorial on that, how I do the entire process. So I'll put a link in the description box below. You can go and check out the entire process of how I do this. All right, so that's the colors, five colors, and some tissue paper. So sure. I grabbed my tissue papers. And and credible draft Jonah or whatever you have. It will be really helpful for practicing some of the techniques that we're gonna do. So I'm going to be showing you on the techniques on this, an art journal which you could practice before getting to do it on the canvas. All right, so that's all for the supplies. Let's get started with a beating. 3. Step 1 - Background Forest : I will start by taking out all the colors that's on. I have gone on my colors, the plate and I start off, we're covering the whole bag was first. So I am using a size ten brush. And here we go. So I'll start off with adding a lot of white on the top. For now, top-left corner. And gradually a stock taking just a bit dot dark green and tiny. So you'll see the color that we are forming by mixing just these three dawns. White, dark green, and black. I don't want to go too much on this corner because I went off, keep it fairly wide. So all we're doing is just brushing the color onto the canvas. Now, as we have coming down, I am going to take modal, lag and pleasing. So this is the Gullah between what? So you see how we're blaming gradually from light to dark. So I'm not really bothered with any of the strokes are the textures or anything at this point. I'm just going on and just finishing up the canvas with color. Now as we're coming down, it's falling into even darker. So I'm taking more of black and green. My focus at this point is covering of the indirect damages, making sure that there is no white canvas showing through while I'm doing this. Okay. I think I'm going to stop short. This is where the floor area becomes 10 dot page. But there you go. So my dad was not aimed at the top. Is galore. And just making sure that data no white spots. One thing I like to do when I beam to on, off and was boards is Gallo the site this slot age on the site? I'd like to color it up. Nice. Okay, Now we will start doing little bit of texture on the background. And this is, this is the technique. Actually I can show it to you on the canvas itself rather than doing it on the Jomon. But if you want, you can practice this state literal bit on your rough canvas or sheet or whatever you have. And the enjoyed on the Canvas. Okay. So you see what I'm doing is let me first get some more of weight. What I'm doing is this flat brush. I'm kind of pushing it down on the plate. Open up the prisons or not. If you have a really new brush, it won't open up fairly easily like it's happening for me. What are you going to do is use your left hand and open up the bristles like this. Okay. Or you can just push it on the plate to open it up as much. In fact. Then now I have a little darker dawn than the white one. So it's pretty much like this don't that I have on my brush. Now, what you do is very softly see I don't even have too much of fiend. Very gently. I'm just going over your, so whenever this joining that happened, you see that it through joining this one is very light to medium light and then medium light to very dark. So wherever this join things have happened very gently, I'm just going home and doing this little slight dabbing overhead so that the joins are not that prominent. And it looks nice. And you are not putting too much pressure. If you put too much pressure, it becomes like a blog, right? So blood. Also, one more thing that I'm doing here is the painted the background is pretty bad. So I'm taking the benefit of that. And I am using the brush, mix them up little bits. So what I'm doing is actually I'm creating some leaves of the background. Twitter like pretty blurry ish kind of thing. And if you feel like, feel the need, you can pick up little bit of white. Because we, as we have going upward, we want the colors to be really light. We don't want it to be too dark. So I hope you've got the technique that I'm doing. Having less paint and giving really gentle pressure on your candidates will give you this effect for making to avoid all the way around. Taking more white. Wow, see, can you see, but they said on the leaves falling on the Canvas shell. So what I'm doing is I'm actually picking up a lot of white because I want more white to be held. And I am adding more of white, dexterous over here rather than Slack. It's Joseph. She had stage, we just colored it all For all around without looking at the data shows that smoking and in this state, which is actually a stamp on top of this, we are creating some nice textures. Okay, so I hope you've got that. Now let's go keep coming down and we keep doing the same thing with a bit of black and white. And we just gave this. So this is like the midi torn, coming up or wheels cards, let's say. Okay, then become almost as good as meaning cube, dream forth continuously, long time. But you see the beautiful That's gets farmed. And you don't want to adjust this div, you'll want to take your time and do with cheating IC. Now as we're coming down, we're going to get two more dark go over these and makes more of bloggers. You pick up more real. One tip that I can give you is always use our old brush because that way you get this texture really well. You can see the bristles are kind of opened up already on its own. However, if you use our new brush, you still will be able to do it, but you'll have to struggle a bit to open up the bristle. So don't throw away your old brushes and and keep them somewhere safe so that you can use them for her B2V like this. Okay. I've now we're going to do so much more on top of this slide. This is good for the background layer, for the time being. All right, so now I wash off my brush. 4. Step 2: Background Forest Floor: Now in the next step, we are going to focus on filling up this bottom part of the Canvas. I have washed off my brush really bad. Giant each off on the tissue before. Okay, so now let's talk the bottom layer. So for the bottom layer, I need. So now again, we're going to mix three colors, which is a light brown and black. And we're going to continue exactly the same technique, just with different colors. So first thing, what I'm going to do is fill up the Canvas. Remember the first day be speeding up the canvas. So this is the light and we are, this is the light ADR, couple of light AS and couple of duck. Yes. So over here you'll see while I'm using this brush size stain, I think that ADI is fairly small for me to work with this big brush. So I just applied the beam and then I switch to that smaller flat brush that I can't particular night. So we just feed a document iffy. So again, I'm making sure that the entire canvas is covered. There is no whitespace. And then we will go on top of it and add the texture. Okay, this is done on the bookshelf, my brush, and I'm switching to this smartest ice flat brush. So you see this brush is not that old and it is fairly new, right? So for this, but this one, you can see how I were to open up the Bristol and do the exact same thing. Okay, so let's start with the small, sorry, the light of partner. Okay. Sings by didn't realm. And I'm Goin on top of this. I hope I'm not blocking your view mode off it. So this one, we are going to come back and do it later again, once again. But for the time being, I just wanted to add a few extra Before moving on completely. So again, just press and open up quite a bit and gain. So the way this technique works is if you hold your brush completely 90-degree on. Let's click drag on my blue light with this, then I will be blocking your view completely. So I'm holding it at an angle so that you can see it. But why you're doing it? Feel free to boarded absolutely 90 degree on top of your canvas that we get a better excitement. That's more cost EOQ. Stopping to take moments black. In the dock area. You'll see I'm keeping some gaps in between when that, when I'm doing that extreme so that the background layer shows up it. Once you'll get a hang of this technique, it's really easy to do it and you get amazing results doing this. I guess that's why I like this technique a lot. Especially at the joining of the water and the green. I am trying to add this back so that the kind of bleed into each other smoothly and doesn't show true. And and, and what I'm doing using the light to India, I'm just going maybe softly that a little bit of ground. And just adding a few strokes in between do showed that baby. Although far as to say, this really gently. Same team we denoted big shop. Acrylic paintings works best when you add layers upon layers. So this is the first layer we're doing, or you can call it Juliet's, but we're going to come back and do one more layer on top of it to give the final look of this area. Okay. Now let's go dark on this side. And in this case, I'm adding a few like to join us here. In between this, it's basically wherever the trees or plants, the shadows of bombing, wherever the sun rays are falling. Generic city on the, on the floor of the forest. You're getting this later video. So that's what is happening here. So the light actually is the Sunday falling on the ground. So let's leave it at the moment. And after working on the tough part for vaguely, we're going to come back down and do one final thought shop for those forest floor. Okay. 5. Step 3: Sunrays: Now in this state, we are going to create the most amazing step of the painting, which is the sundry is falling. Okay, So for that, I have again picked up my older the biggest size brush and make sure that you won't completely washed and dried it. And I need y to an opening for this step. So watch this step completely. It's going to be a realist monster. But you have to do it right? And ones. So you, if you need to, you can just watch this, practice it on your rough Jonah and then to wait on right. Okay. So it's fairly dry brush taking little bit of white and this time I'm mixing it up on the late. So I got this green and white mix, mostly white, very light green. Alright, Now, watch it. I'm starting from this corner. And really gently, I'm tracking down like this. So you will see the, all the bristles are giving this I know lose line kind of a view, right? Again. Just a few more line. See firstName, I did like this. I use the flat surface of the brush, but if you feel it, this is dual, broad and you'll want to create a couple of small lines. You're going to hold your brush like this and also drag it down that way and get a penile lines. Okay. I'm digging more green. I just feel it's not. I'm taking you through the debris. It also I think the gray is dried. Tends to be took prayer. I think that's enough. Or maybe just a bit of gray. Good luck through this. So just a bit more and let's just go here and a bit more. He did have some kinda lines. A few more here. Make sure your angles. I really insane. They're not very good and they're always right. I think that like it. And at one dark green lines and retreats. So there's gonna be a lot of leaves coming on top of it and locking more, stop it. So these are all window in the background. But I think I think I did a bit too much, Chelsea, when you're doing something like that, you always pick up black and just add a little bit like this. So you see it's kind of gone. No, that's anyways, I'm going to create a lot of cheese Yaso. It, it'll be as in leaves and stuff, so it will be covered. Yeah, That's all for this Andrea's. It can be a little different for you. It gathers, can differ a little bit. That's totally fine. There is no hard and fast rule. Just make sure that you're not blocking in WC, my previous lectures that we did, it's kind of visible. You don't want to block too much of it. All right, so let us background trees a short, short little bit. And and, and, and don't add too much of water. It should be a right balance of water and paint. Don't get this lines nearly way. All right, so let's move on to the next step. 6. Step 4: Background Trees: I think it's looking gorgeous with the sun rays of this color. I really love it. Okay, now we're going to create the trunks of the trees, but before that, I'm just going to create a few more background trees and then we will get onto that. Okay, So for that, I am going to take green and black and create some more. So it actually good that we've got a little lighter background overflow so that when we cleared the cheese, now it will be much visible. Always remember when you're doing this texture, this technique that I'm doing, this texturing technique that you have a different color now that the bat for that excuse to be visible. So you don't want Yukon do that same color on top of the other balloon. Let the Batman movies a little bit. That way. It looks city in ice engines do. Okay, let's just add a few leaves popping out. Loving that. See, I don't want to block too much of the sun's rays that I have done joke. But just through eight, you see when you have a like this, you don't have to do putting too much info. Just by slightly touching the bristles on the canvas. You get this beautiful stuff. Adding more black here. Okay, so the left side is done. Let's move on to the right site. Exactly the same thing. These are all again background trees. So this whole side, I'm going to add Mickey layer of dark. Awesome, just waiting it up little bit so that I don't mean 20, but it too much. But anyways, I'll go dogs clean that up. It does. People's set as increased this little bit towards that inside this debate. This day you book that was a fairly easy step of just creating little bit of background. The background leaves over here. We're going to create so much more on top of this after creating the trunks. So let's get onto that. I'm washing off my brush. 7. Step 5: Tree Trunks: All right, So now the next step, I am going to use this round brush. I don't think I have used it ever again, ever before. And this is the first time I'm using its size six. Okay? So let's start. I'm using this round brush and I'm using brown and OK. And it's gam, feel lucky intimidating to do this font, but just bear with me what she wants and see how I'm doing it. Some starting from the top bit, the lines be broken because the color is or and I'm trained to do, we're going to be lining of the chunk by the COVID nature of the trunk. Now you might need under 2-bit of water, mix it up with the band for the flow move of easy, small movement. And I'm building on top of it again and taking it up nicely. And you'll see I've indented on this dark shadow area because this is where the shadow is for me because of this tree. Okay. I'm quite like it now seems though zombies is coming from Shaw. What we're going to do is I want a bit more brown, which is basically showing that the light falling here. Maybe once it is dry debate, I'll add more because right now it is blending out with the black completely. But STI, like an add a bunch of textures. And also what we should put, I'm just adding a little bit just to make sure our man that she is so that it doesn't bleed a blending too much with the background and not decide I'm adding them back. Since the light is falling from this side, this side is lighter and the right side is. All right, so our first job and you're going to do the same thing on the right side. Again, I'm going to end it show this is the DACA batch. So whenever the ends that is read, the shadow is formed, right? Delight and shadow is a very important part of the painting that gives you a bending, the realistic look, having the right amount of light and shadow. Let's get down to more faint. Like you stare. I'm adding a good amount of paint on top of this because I see some of the greens showing through the black because that happened because I used a week too much of water. And I'm adding more black on this side. Same concept. But I'd say these dogs are left side is light up. And it seems it has a lot of water right now. I don't want to add too much because momenta, how much I add it, you'll all get linked up as a switch. So I didn't want to let it dry for some time. And again, I'm going to come back and add some more, but I'm just adding as much I can right now. So you see how nicely it's looking as I might have more thing to it. Okay. Just increased the base of bit more here. Not so interesting. Not be tomorrow. All right, so this is where the shadows are, Guernica that we've got a leader. Now, a couple of additional things that I'm going to do. I'm washing of this round brush and I'm taking my liner brush. I'd take psi CDO and I'm going to take this black and brown mix and I'm going to create a feel branches. Okay, so watch this box, get neat. In Penn was just a couple of them and you can get an idea of how to go about it. We don't want to dark dual peak lines. That's why I'm using the liner brush. The dean and the lines are more realistic. Tree looks. Now the benches don't have to do exactly what I am doing needs. So feel free to choose the place. However you like to do this, make sure at the end of the tip of the branches it's really, really painful, tough kids. So that way it looks shiny quarters. And also I prefer the auto while I'm working on the liner brush because it just makes it easier. I must tell you that most of it is going to get hit in once we start adding all the leaves. But steady what they were really visible, true, it's going to add a lot of structure can debate me. That's amazing. I love how it is forming. However, most afraid is not going to read this steel. I love creating this branches. Okay, I think I'm going to stop cure. I think it's looking beautiful. 8. Learn the Leaves Techniques: All right, So before adding all the leaves, what I'm gonna do is I'm going to show you a quick demo of how to do it on my sketch book. And at the same time we would let this dry as well because this thought the tree trunk area is pretty vague for me. And once we start with the leaves, we want the background to the completely dried. So I let this dry and I'm going to build a mood to do though is show you the technique. Okay, so I will take this big old brush, the bigger flat brush. And to make sure it's completely jive and the bristles are open. Now I were to show you the same technique that this brush and my smaller for the black brush, which is kind of like a new brush. So that if you have a new brush, you'll know how to work with it. Okay? So I'm going to show you both of them. So first, most important thing is making sure that your brushes dry, complete so there's not too much of water. And we're going to create two different shades of green. First, let's start with clean, the dark green shade that I have. So see, the difference is when you don't put too much pressure and you will gently on your bandwidth of paper itself. This kind of texture. And do this, let me add a bit of piano and you see how nicely it develops. See I'm not adding the yellow everywhere, just adding as highlights in some of the plexus. And you see how nicely it's forming. You can go however direction you want, whichever direction you want to take. Just make sure you are mixing both the colors and you're not mixing them up on the plate and creating one solid color your ticking up, I mean ones and yellow ones. So let's say for example, we showed you wanted to make it a bit dark. So you add more dark green with a bit of black. Maybe. Whenever you use two shades of colors, if you get this amazing result. And then you add green to yellow to read this, to show highlights. In some cases, you can take a bit of white also adding some bots. But now you'll see it's kind of like bushy. Now, if I wanted to keep, he'd be a little bit more leafy like what I'm going to do is not move so dense. I'm going to keep some gaps in between the receipt so well with you or I'm keeping some gaps. I'm doing the exact same thing, but I'm not going so much all over the place and keeping some white space in between. Now, the pressure is very important in creating. Texture if you put too much pressure. So say for example, I pick up this dark green and I hope you see those use. Teams are not going to form if you go and foot do multiplication. Now, see for example, you picked up too much of paint and you'll have added too much of addiction like this. You can also put a basal motor, teach you how to correct if you do something like this. So this is a dark shade. You can pick up little bit of yellow which is a different shape. And you can go on top of this. And you can still affected by adding the loose strokes on top of it. Or maybe even become a little bit of lag. Anything alternate colors will do. And you or, and you add the black to add some. It, do it. How I would try not to do that, not add too much of a force while adding the colors. And that way you can create really nice and loose fixtures. So you see and you add onto new planets, do it. So practice this fossa more dying. I haven't done this probably like thousands of dimes. And hey, I can throw Julie easy, but if you're doing it for the first diagonal line, a bit complicated, but it's not complicated at all. It just a little bit of practice and who are good to go. All right, so now I'm keeping this brush aside and I'm showing you with this brush. Okay? So for this, what you do is you just open up the bristle like this. You'll see it's getting open. Trade would crumble this ice. Okay. It's fairly open. No. No. Just go 90 degree on the paint and just become a little bit of paint. If you're feeling of depth too much, just dab it off on the blood or the tissue paper. Let's get rid of the excess paint and to come here and go nicely on the canvas so that we hold like that was like this. Go 90 degree on it. And you add gently sparingly, big gaps in between. See, every brush will give you different extra. It really depends on the brush that you're using. That technique is just the same, but different brush will give you different XTO. So you need to know how to manage your brush to get that fixture that you love. Now you'll see I'm quite liking this. So here, just do this kind of pain. May you are reading some flowing leaves on the site. So now I'll take a little yellow on top of this. And you see I'm just going again. I feel it's getting do pinned it down. So I'm just pressing the Brazilian hard on the plate to open it up. Okay. It's open quite a bit. Oh, lovely. Look at that. Extra. I'm good too young. Oh, isn't that lovely? See some things. I don't know which one. You like more. I think I'm liking this one nice. And it's ethnically Black was the bottom to give the shadow. So there you go. You've got, we'll go techniques with the different kind of brushes. Now I'm going to show you a little different Follow that you're going to follow with this same case. So that causes it, I'm going to use a black. So I'm first starting off with, I hope I'm not knocking. And then I'm taking a little bit of yellow and green on top of it. So you see the shade of green is a bit different. Also, you're going to use a beautiful brown the date and give the olive green shaped. So the more you practice this technique that saw your hand opens up and you feel confident to do it on the canvas. It's okay. I believe it's always good to start with dark and the integral light on dogs. So let me show you one more thing. It safe. I am adding a lot of black and non-white legal on top of it and a p into issues. This is also another way of doing it, not this is another technique that we wanna do in this one. But this is something each other then surely, okay. So the debate was it anymore? So it's more like Bush's. That technique is just the same, but you just add a bit more dark to create the background and the new ball on top of it. And created some extra edges of the site. I think it's, it's forming like a painting on her body with all the leaves on it. Look at that. See I, I, I'll tell you from my experience of doing this technique for thousands of times. Every time I do it, every time it comes out different. So I can never predict how it's going to be at one certain point. So you have to be okay with accepting whatever is coming out of your hand on that particular day and go with it. And it's always it's always surprising how it's been coming out at on different days, differently, different blush, different mood. Everything contributes to that extremity. You get unwieldy, you go. We have our journal page full of leaves. I'll just add beach of white on. So to wait, to show you the different colors. Let's add more white here. Let's form like a nice scheme that is forming. Well look at that exempted lovely. Let me know if you tried this animals who came up with the Bintang of the art. I'm loving this. This is what happens when you, you need to experiment with colors and techniques. And you've come up with beautiful and start that you'll go into been envisioning before. Let me add little yellow here. Okay. I'm not going to play around anymore. You can do that as much you want to. Take your time. Have fun with this technique, fall in love with this technique. That is what I would say because that is what happens with me. I really feel totally in love with this when I do this. And that is what you need to feel. Just get sucked into your painting, go all out, do whatever you want to do is just a rough bead. Nobody is going to judge you for this. Do it as much you do, you'll get a better hands-on on getting this technique right. Bye you too on the canvas. I hope you had fun learning this technique. So let's move on to the painting and let's create all the beautiful greenery is on our LMS. 9. Step 6: Leaves Part 1: All right, so let's start with the creating all the leaves on the tree. So I haven't washed off these two brushes, as you can see, it has escaped him here because for this tape, you don't want any water on your brush, you want it to be dry. So and anyways, I have the same colors. I will go ahead and stack with it. I'm just cards or more of yellow. I don't think I moved to white for this tip by defining dive in and dig up later. Ok, Let's go. Without taking with the stocking, with the with the tough. It's kind of dark on the top. Loosely adding, oops, sorry. We notice that was out of the frame. Made LOS Leah, Maddie. And just see what we got. I'm getting absolutely different extra than when I was as a right. Again, the fixture that you would get also depends a lot on the wheel boiling or Russia like this are at a 45 degree angle. It makes a lot of difference. Okay, so Chido to do your trial and error method and see which one works the best for you. I can't just keep it does not end goal very softly and create us Use. All right, so in iPhone green and black, I'm going to get some yellows on top of it. Well, look, look at those textures coming. Well. So to get some such states shouldn't have to go really slowly, gently on your fabulous. So what do you see? How Socrates, I'm putting some Nash and I'm going slow. Nielsen. See over here. I have intelligent fast and it becomes like a blob. I mean, which is not a huge problem. But I'm just showing you the different things that happens depending on the way you move your hand. All right. So I'm going to give me get that the spot from a mitogen visibly though. If we start off with the site, the top is kind of dark. Look at that. We've got the sticks. She's coming. Be the less spent, almost no paint in my brush. Taken some yellow nodes. And gradually you'll see how it is coming from dark to light as I'm coming down. Okay, so what's going to happen is your brush is going to get into the beach on top of the chunk, which is fine. Legally become and other eight up a little bit dark tone, okay, so don't hesitate to go, what is this? Let's add government now. This K lead some of the on Add and fewer mole of each row. And I'm adding move Yellow. Sea, anytime I'm adding yellow and making sure that I have a dark background on Donald feet if I'm adding the yellow because they only pop up if you have if you're doing it on top of a dark regions. Okay. So let's see what was Yoda OUT haven't done now once all the yellows underpinned. So nice. Tool out. Isn't looking lovely with all no shadows coming up. So the Savior, you'll see it's a bit dark, so I'm just going to add a tiny bit of yellow around. We had to close debate in some places. Oh, isn't that lovely? Since pad just a bit. So I go all around there wherever I feel like. So have a look around by the European thing all over your place. Just dormant state DOT one face all the time. I feel that with your eye can add a bit to overdub really. Okay. It's okay. It's totally different from how I did it last time. I'm totally lighting it takes since that up on me again and said different day, different graphs, different mindset, everything is different. So had his logged creates this. Okay, now I don't wanna go too much on, on this area. Null eiffel was little bit on the bottom area. Okay. 10. Step 7: Leaves Part 2: So I would start off with dy plus x. Again. Don't bother if even if you've gone on top of the chart that we color it later and connects this part completely and the United come to for that site. Okay. Can gets to some. Sure. Okay. So now this area is space more. So what I'm going to do is I really do, I mean, switch to this one. And probably I'll end up getting a different XA. Ta. See, it's much better to go and the smaller area with a small brush. Okay, I'm going really soft, really JMP adding a bit of light also do it because this is where the sun's rays direct. So this block is going to be asymptotically breaking the dark. Okay, Let's open, adopt a bit more. Let's take and eat some fish, white, yellow. Let's leave me add a page. It'll fall. Black was towards the bottom of it. Right? Because at the bottom the sun rays I'm not treating completely. So we create some shadow at the bottom, right being off the black and switching to more of the yellow. Opening up my research because they broke. I think it's looking lovely. Now I switch to the plaid brush again and do the background theme on this site that black and green Create to pick two more decks just be to make a little bit plus the front, not so much at the back because I don't know. Of yellows. So let's toggle down properly updated. I felt that it's just that a gamete. It's so it's so sodium to have green in the house, right? So if you create this painting on a bigger Canvas, I mean, it wouldn't be such a nice view to house. I love having plants at home and I feel they just clear it so much a Saturday in your life where you get to see some greens every day. They wrote it, somebody dot yet you can see all the Dacians. They'll have a look at it flows on chondrite. So might these two brush job is done. What I'm going to do now is take that rounded brush and create some of the trunk once again, bringing it to the front. Done and stinking thinking all those things. Okay, I'm going to leave it to go and lead to include bit of leaves come in the front. So I'm just going to add up your most. That's it. Okay, Now I'm going to add some brown. The chunk to show the summaries or falling our wall here indicating a little light, shadow. Same thing. I wanted to show. This broad advice. 11. Step 8: Final Touch Ups: Now in the next step and the final step of the painting, we are going to create some more definitions on this bottom part of the of the forest. And for that, I am using those mandrel. Was she just completely GI Adolph? And I'm going to take some brown and white and create light dorm where the sunlight is falling us. Okay, So do you see how I'm just speeding the, adding the textures here and there not to be rare. And it's starting to look so nice. Same thing. I'm gonna to assure us. I am mixing it up with Duncan site. As I'm up, I'm adding motive back to blame in the background. Okay, I'll make sure I am just doing the shadows of the trees first theme or gave before doing anything else. So this is where the shadow fall, water chunk is falling to keep that same team on the site. And that's it. Now I'm autistic, add a bit more insight. One last thing that I'm going to do is create some who didn't stand. Are wooden sticks placed on, on the forest floor. Okay. So what I'm going to add here is very simple, just a line, but they just add so much depth to the BIM team. So it's a mix of black and brown. And adding one heroes and one more shot. Let's see. It might seem like such a simple thing to add. But do you see that just by adding this tree, it's adding so much of the elements in the beating. And now we're going to create little bit of shadow foot this. So I'm using this MAC address incentive to do that. So the shadow is forming yarn is a key. One of the pounds to 0 you get activities will start flat. So because they taught him he has such as the capacitance. This slide to find anything absolute to do is add a little round and a light on this side. Just assume more assembly site. This site is linked up a bit more because of the sunlight hours. Adding some fictitious do though chunk. And we are pretty much done. I just feel like adding a fatal fall green on this side there just to make sure that this is on the floor. So it's like coming on toggles, Doug Brown and David is joining is happening. It's not that defeasible. Yeah. We are done. Looking at the depth that we see in debating going inside the forest, you could almost feel like you're walking into the forest or as it's somebody coming from the background is early morning bright on the money, seeing all of them for list. So final thing, I'm going to engulf this painting by signing off. And I really like using entrepreneur value for that. So let's take out, if we don't learn, it, just makes it too. It really meant it's not visible as much as we can. Maybe I'll do it. P naught fresh. But this council I finished like signing my flew them today. You 12. Final Words: Well, I hope you enjoyed creating this painting along with me, and created a beautiful painting of this forest road or forest floor, whatever you wanna call it.

So let me quickly show you one painting that I have done using just this technique. So the way we created this. So just with this technique, I have created money painting, which I want to show you. This. This is a pretty big canvas. I'm not sleep data frame, but I started off with the lighter ones and read up. And then from dark, from bottom-up, top-down. So it's just flat brush and thickening that you do so many different sorts of paintings. I like to create a tutorial of that.
