Hello, I'm Shanan Subhan, an Artist currently residing in Bangalore. I am a software engineer turned Artist.

Nature/landscapes are among my favorite subjects to paint. I thank nature and great photographs for inspiring and challenging me.

I started coloring at an early age, even before school taught me to read and write. Unaware of art and the theory of colors, I loved scribbling on papers, books, and walls! All I felt was colorful walls are merrier than monotonous ones.

Although I loved painting and coloring, because of studies and the competitiveness of day-to-day life, I somehow got disconnected from art a few years ago, but I always felt that emptiness in life. Back in the end of 2017, I felt the need to fill this gap so I gifted myself a basic... See full profile

1. Introduction to the Class: Do you want to paint realistic gosh, landscapes? Then this class is for you. Hello, I'm challenged upon. I am an artist from India. Welcome to my Skillshare class. I love to paint nature, mainly landscapes. I paint with several mediums like watercolors, accolades, gosh or etc. My classes on Skillshare covers basics to advance painting concepts. I also put up my work on Instagram and that they handle water goods. Feel free to check it out. In this class, we will learn to paint this mysterious forest landscape in a realistic way. I have covered all the techniques required to pin this. We will learn how to use Moodle blends and discuss the factors influencing the light and shadows in a painting. Also focus on layering and adding dimensions, resulting in an enhanced and enrich outcome in the painting. Even though it looks like a complex object. I've broken down the process in books, simpler steps. The class is designed in such a way that even a beginner can join in. So without any further delay, let's get started. I'll see you in my class. 2. Art Supplies Required: Welcome back. I'm so glad you decided to join my class. Before we begin, I will briefly explain the flow of this artwork on. First, we will paint this graded background from light to dark color. Then we will paint the background trees and add some foliage on the upper part. Moving on, we will add though some grasses in the middle ground. Next in the midground area, we will paint the trees and add some dimension to them. Lastly, we will paint the flowers and add some minor details here and there. So that's how we will print this artwork. To get started with the painting, let me walk you through all the supplies that I will be using in the paper that I'm using is Fabriano 300 GSM cold press paper. This is basically a watercolor paper. You can go with any kind of paper which is about 200 GSM. And it need not be watercolor paper. For practice, I will use to trumpet paper. This is again, a watercolor paper. You can go with any product you have. Talking about a loss. The three important colors are viridian hue, black and white. This is black led by Sennelier, where a1 is by our dissolve. The huge white Dugas by blue stroke. I will need a bail green to paint the grasses. This is like a bright, light green color. If you don't have this kind of shared, then you can make sap green and lemon yellow to paint the trees. Lemon yellow to add highlights on the grasses. Hello, alcohol to pain. Do Flaubert's. Orange is to add some dimension to the trees. We will also need crimson, red oral scattered the berries. Then I'll use a cardboard to tape down my paper. Using a masking tape. You can even tape down your paper on the table itself. Moving onto brushes, you will need a flat brush. I'm using a crafter mole size 10 flatness with round edges. Next I'll use to size eight round brush. I bought this from local stationery shop. Next to a size two round brush and size four round brush. And then lastly, I'll use this gross truth fine liner brushes. I'll go with size 0. Brush for detailing purpose. Then we lead off pencil for sketching. Next is kitchen towel or any tissue paper or a napkin to wipe off extra water or paint from your brushes. Now for gosh, artworks, you can either go with hot pressed or slightly textured paper. If you compare these three papers, the last one is rough textured, middle one is cold pressed paper and is slightly textured. And this one is hard pressed, which has a very smooth texture. And it's ideal for gosh artworks. So in dingoes on a rough paper is a very difficult job. So choose your paper wisely to have a better painting experience. And that's all about art supplies. Let us move on to our next chapter. 3. Techniques : In this chapter, we will discuss some techniques that will be helpful for the class project. So first I'll take the ceramic saucer as my palette, and we'll take three colors for now. That is where again you white and black. Next I'll take my draft UML brush that is flat brush with round edges. You can go with any flat brush that you have. I'm using a watercolor paper of 300 GSM to demonstrate the techniques. Okay, let's start off with the blending technique. I'll go from light to dark to achieve this graded effect. So I will apply white paint. Next, I will take whether they're new and mix it with white paint to create a lighter Meridian, he will alert all I can say lighter green color. You can make second ballot or directly on paper. Both will work fine. Then I'll take this way. They didn't heal and apply it right next to this. So as you can see, I'm building up the transition from white to green. Next we'll add some black and green. So there is a transition from a darker green to y. Now we will lint of the colors from the brush and remove the excess water using a tissue paper. Now with this damn brush, we'll run it over doping tests of this to achieve a smooth blend. Here the lighter and darker areas depends on the direction of sunlight. Let's say for this part, the light enters from the right side. So this area is like Earth and the opposite side is darker. And now suppose if we change the direction of light, Let's assume that though This coming from the left side. So here on left side we will apply white color and then increase the saturation of the colors all the way to the opposite side. So here you will apply the pains in blocks. And then you're going do a blended well with a damp brush. That is how we do the blending. Now, in between these two colors, I'm going to apply some weight and blend them together. Similarly, if the direction of light is upwards, then you will paint it something like this. The upper part will be painted with white, then gradually increase the saturation and create a gradient effect. I hope you are clear with the basic blending techniques to achieve graded effect and how it is varied depending on the direction of sunlight. So we have been given these three graded washes. So we are going to choose the colors for the transition based on the direction of sunlight. For the first one, I'm considering the light on the right side. And for the second one it is on the left side. For the third one, the light is from the upper part, so the bottom part is darker in all the examples. So opposite sides are darker. So you have to use the same technique in the painting as well. Now let's repeat the same technique to paint this on a big of limb. And later we will use this as our background for painting the trees. So here I'll go with the lighter to darker from left to right. So one thing I would like to say is, don't go for dark to light approach. The polos might lose its vibrancy. For this painting, especially you can go with the lighter to darker color. So I have applied my color and then gradually increase to saturation. With a damp brush, I'm blending the colors when I'm trying to achieve a small graded. To get advanced look in this wash, we are applying black color and mixing it with Meridian you. Now, so now you can see there is a nice transition from white to dark or green color. So this is how we achieve it. Now once the background is painted, you have to let it dry because if you work on a wet surface, you will not get the desired effect. So let it dry. And then once it is completely dry, I add whatever details you want to add. Next we will paint the background trees. So when you paint the background trees, you can go with a slightly darker shade. All right, I'll take white, green, and black to get a grayish green color. I'm using a size three round brush with pointed up. So let's apply this as a tree shapes. Try to paint it in loose strokes and avoid painting straight lines. And as you reach the darker background, you will paint the trees with extra dark color. That this by adding some more black to it. As you can see, as I'm moving towards the darker area, I'm using darker colors to paint the tree trunks. If you use the same color, then the 31 with visible after it dries. So make sure you use a slightly darker color. Okay, hope that is clear with you. If you want, then you can pause the video and practice though blending techniques if you're not confident enough to proceed. Okay, so we have learned to paint the background and the trees. Now, let us learn to paint the tree foliage. So you can use the same color as that of a tree trunk. Later we will add for the layers to add dimension. So you're going to dab your brush to create an impression or foliage on the news. Like this. I w, as we reach towards the darker area, we are going to use that copy inside. So here I will use darker beans to paint the leaves. Next we will see how to pin the glasses. Maybe use light to mid-range of green color. I'm using available in from our design. If you don't have a light green color, then you can make a low bid the sap green to get a similar shade. Painting the grasses are very easy. We will first apply the base layer with lighter color. And then once it dries, we will add some darker color to add our sense of depth in the grasses. Next we will learn the techniques to paint the trees. I'll take three colors on my palate that is born down both black and white. So first, we will apply bond on board, necessarily made of base layer. And we will let it dry. Because on wet area, we will not be able to achieve the details that we won't even let it dry. Once it dries, we will apply darker color to add a sense of depth. And I mention, again, it depends on the direction of light. Next I'm going to use brown with black color to make a darker brown color. And with this colonial Pindar, darker side of the tree. So let's say for the first day, the direction of light is from the right side. So we will keep the area lighter on this side. And on the opposite side we will paint them darker. And for the next tree, the light falls on the left side. So we'll retain the lighter values. Oxide being graded on the wrong side. Just ignore that. Okay? So we really are openly our desired with black panel. Then we will mix this bond Dunhuang and right, to make a lighter mix. Now put a bright sunlit effect we will apply this mix are not three. You can also make some yellowish brown color. So we are going to achieve a sense of depth in the tree, an extremal see how we can be in these wide basis. So depending on the size of the flowers, we will take the brush. So I'll take my fine liner brush to get nice and beautiful petals. I'll add these petals one-by-one. By dabbing my brush. Leave space in the center of each flower. We will also be in these heart-shaped flowers. We've suggests that the flower is half miserable because it just made, it cannot be uniform. So vary the shape of laws. Next, we will add these parts on Steam and using law. You can even remove it and local law. And we will add some leaves and stems of the plant and fill in the area. So yeah, these were some of the techniques that we will use foreign bing, bing. Now let us move on to our class project. 4. Set up & Painting Background: I hope you are ready with all the supplies. So let's get started with the class project. For this painting. I will be using Fabriano 100 percent cotton paper. This is hot press paper, so it has a smooth texture to it. It is of 300 GSM or 140 LBS. You can go with any watercolor or mixed media paper for gosh pimping. And it need not be 300 GSM. It is good if you have a hot press paper, slightly textured paper, because, because with rough paper, cold press paper, the beam, the experience won't be that great. Alright, let us start off by masking that paper. So I'll be giving very thin border. Yeah, that's how I like it for main wash paintings. You can keep the borders thicker or thinner depending on how you like it. It's all up to you. So when to apply your fingers on the masking tape to ensure that it is tightly sealed and there's the paper remains intact. Okay, moving on, we will take our palette for mixing colors. Are blending technique that we learned in the techniques chapter to paint the background. So we will leave the gallows that is white, black, and viridian hue. So before we dive into painting process, let me just mark the sketch. So I'll draw kind of warmly and slant line. Above this line will be the dummy background. On the misty background. Below this line, we will have the grasses and the flats. Okay. Let's apply some white paint on the left side, which also means that the light source is on the left side and the opposite side will be darker. I have explained it neatly in the techniques chapter. Okay, so I haven't sketched everything here. If you wonder why. Let me tell you, since gosh, being obeyed, hence the underlying sketch will be hidden on the application of spins are late. Next, we will apply this very new and white mix. Here my brushstrokes are sort of a circular in shape. We're not apply dopings in straight vertical brushstrokes, make it a slant or curvy. Also apply paint or little the line we sketched. And you can leave it blank below this area. In Gosh beans, we mix white to lighten the original value. Whereas in watercolors we add water to make it lighter. There are different approaches for different medium. So you're, I'm trying to create a nice graded transition. An extremely mixed green and black and apply it on the right side, are almost close to achieve a nice gradient. Now in your damn brush and the paint surface and try to achieve a smooth blend. If you haven't achieved a nice gradient effect, then please pause the video and try to fix it by applying that allows again, Gosh is a forgiving medium so you can be chilled out while painting. I sometimes end up adding hundreds of layers until I get desired results. I know we shouldn't chase perfection, but we are human side. We have bone redo that. So as you can see, I have achieved this nice graded effect in the background. But also I have this feeling that there is room for improvement. So I'm going to add some darker green color to add a sense of dimension. 5. Background Trees: So we have painted the background for our painting. As you can see, the sketch is not clearly visible because galoshes opaque, like I said earlier, it is going to be covered with the pimps. So if you want to command the ADI again or leave it as it is. Let us make staplers to paint the background trees. Like I said in the techniques chapter, we will make a tiny bit of black, greenish white mix. Now with this mix, we are going to paint the background trees. Paint as many trees as you want, but make sure to leave some blank spaces in between. Notice that I painted with a slightly darker color because the background is green. So you have to change the color as you move towards talk about cosine. Gently paint the trees one by one. So this is going to take time, but I'm shorter dish word third, because the end result is going to be very beautiful. You can fork the tree into two parts and create multiple branches. And I reached this darker background. I will paint with some extra dark color. So I'll paint the tree with the darker green. That is my mixing green and black. I had some random tree trunks in the middle with DACA color. This will suggest that those trees are closer to w point. If your noticed that ratio, not simply street, they are in different directions and different shapes. So you can have that radiation in your painting as well. Don't keep your trees uniform or symmetrical. Avoid doing that. That will prevent it from looking organic or natural. So just go with some loose strokes and you will surely achieved a natural look and feel. Next with the lighter color mix, we will tap the paint. Tiny random shapes to suggest leaves and foliage. We are going to adapt the beans on every tree trunk. Here you don't have to worry about creating perfect shapes. Randomly dab some paints with varied amount of pressure on your brush. So that achieve different brush strokes. And it would look really nice to give us our TOEFL forest to my hips. I'm dabbing the paint over and over again to create a sort of forest block are really dense environment. So you can go with a round brush of size 4 or 6 for bigger dabs. And for tiny details, you can go with size 2, 1, 0 are even odd ego brush. Next we will dab some slightly darker color in order to depict some darker leaves, the site of foliage. This will add some dimension and create a sense of depth in the painting. As per the concept of doping. The darker side we'll have about godliness. So it'll be in the right side with darker colors. You can go with black color to create an intense effect. And we will also apply the black color on the upper part of the lighter area. 6. Painting Grasses: Next we will paint the ground area, dummy background. So we're going to apply this bright green mix. So I'll apply this makes over the bottom area of these tree trunks, making it look as though it was covered with grasses. We will apply the paint and cover the bottom part of the trees. Next, I had some crease using slightly darker. Don't use very darker pinch to paint the trees in the area. We will also add some darker trees in the darker side of the ending. You could attempt to paint it in a simple way as well. But when you add these layers one after the other, you allow it to look realistic and that enhances the painting. And if you're someone who likes sprinting, simply landscapes, then you can skip few layers of these trees. After all, it is you who will be doing the pimping. I am just here to guide you. If you notice, I have extended the tree trunks over this ground area. Sort of create an illusion of distance in the painting. The trees which we painted earlier, far from the viewpoint. And the trees that we added now are somewhere in the middle. I think you're able to see that in the painting. Next, we will add some grasses in the foreground. So I will use this pale green by our pizza and apply it on the ground. This is going to be the base layer. More like blocking the area. We're going forward, we will add more details to create a sense of depth in the process. Gently apply this green column. Next we will apply black color in the bottom part of the paper. This will be the underlying Palo for the bases that will paint later. Now blend these two colors and try to create a smooth transition. So in order to blend them, you have to mix green and the black color together. Gently, apply the paint and blend it Well. Either you can make stop alert on palette, applied directly on the paper and then try to blend it, whichever is easier for you go with that. I'm taking some green and applying it on the grasses. Play some green beans on the black area and length both fellows together. This way, when I run my brush and the black gets mixed with the green and it gets darker green, yellow. Next wielding darker green and paint it under the trees on the darker side because the light is very less Decide. So the grasses only died bright in color. I hope that makes sense. 7. Painting Trees: We have painted the background with some trees. Next we will proceed to the foreground trees. So these trees are closer to the viewpoint, so we will pin them in detail. Further trees that are in the darker side. I will use black color to paint them. When you're painting the trunk of the tree, you can move your hand little bit to get a wobbly and not so straight trunk. During the painting process, I usually take my paper on a clipboard because it is easier for me and I perform better with free movement of my hand. I can turn my board and filtered and paint however I want my comfort. But when I tape the paper on the table or any fixed object, I don't perform so well, and I end up taking a lot of time to finish that artwork. So today I thought of sharing this with the oil because you might be like me who paints better when you are free to move your paper? Just compare two different styles and see which works better for you. Next, we will paint the trees in the sunlit area. So we will use burnt umber to paint this. Okay, so I will paint the tree trunk with bond on board as the base layer. To add any detail to the trees, you need to first let it dry completely. This tree is slightly curved. So you can paint those straight trees in the foreground. One easier way to achieve a decent reshaped is to first outline the desired shape and then you can fill it up with the veins inside. So here I'm using my size two round brush. Now let us paint another tree in the foreground. So I'll follow the same technique. That is to draw the outline first and then fill in the area with the paint. I add some branches to the trees. You can use appointed brush to get thin strokes. Also, you can vary the amount of pressure on your brush so that you get thin and thick strokes with the same brush. The point where you start painting the branches must be thicker. And as it goes outwards, it gets thinner and size absorbed the shape of trees and other elements around you, and figure out how they are structured. This way it will help you come up with beautiful and realistic compositions in your paintings. So when you see something, try it on a paper and you will know where you go wrong and how you can improve it. I'm a self-taught artist, and this is how I learned and improved myself by observing and practicing on daily basis. 8. Painting depth - Trees and Foliage: Okay, So until the base layer of the tree trunk and dries. Meanwhile, we will add some details on the foliage, can make it more dimensional. X some black paint in the fine liner brush and start painting the leaves and the branches. And I am the beans very gently. To create thinner and apps. You can go with rigger brush, size 0 or size double 0, triple 0. Size one, brush, even round brush with appointed. It will do, but apply very less pleasure. In case you want to pin it or ticket leaves with Tim rushed, then you're going to slant your brush and apply more pressure. That will create an inflation of bigger leaves. If you carefully observe, I'm painting the foliage with crisscross and executive branches and then gently dabbing the beams to suggest leaves. These leaves are no perfect. There's no particular rule as such to do this. But if you are not confident, then you can pick up based on rough paper and practice it for a couple of times before you attempt it on the painting. Okay, so the base layer of the tree trunk has tried. Moving on, we will add another layer on the tree with darker color to achieve a sense of depth. Next Saturday black color and draw the lines against the direction of sunlight. So I'm drawing lines on the right side of each tree trunk. So I'm painting straight and vertical lines. The right side of each tree trunk, lines next to each other, leaving some spaces in between. Apply the same on the branches as well. I'm gently applying black lines on the tree trunk. Do not rush to finish to process it your time, live in the moment and enjoy the process. So this painting is a bit complex. It has a lot of details to add in. So if you are able to pin this completely, then you will be confident to attempt more such paintings. So don't stop in between if you feel it this more time-consuming. Now that we have painted the darker side of the tree trunk, we will also have to pay in the US, I'm late on the other side of the trunk. So I'm gonna take orange and white. We mix them together to get lighter brown color. Now with this mix, I will apply straight lines on the sunlit side. Okay, So this needs to be still more light. So I will add more white to this. Yeah, It looks perfect. Applying this on the tree trunk to get sunlit effect. Also going. This will give us, us out of cylindrical illusion. Yeah. Distributions. Going back to painting foliage, we will apply another layer of leaves to add some dimension. I'm going to apply a darker layer this time. So I'll use black color to paint the leaves over the existing foliage. So here I will darken the upper part of 38 drunk, since it is covered with foliage. So that is way less light. And again, we will add the curves, cross and zigzaggy lines in the foliage. If you notice, we have already imbedded up a layer and added a sense of dimension. Lighter leaves then medium color leaves. Now, yeah, painting darker leaves. Also, I'm adding some trees in the middle ground. Create an illusion that there are trees in the middle ground as well. So this is how we create the dimension in the painting absorbed the point where I'm starting to paint the tree trunk. This should be somewhere in between where the grasses start. I would like some more leaves by dabbing. So you are the image to create the foliage look in the upper part of the painting. On the top-left area, I'm applying the beams and covering it up with black color. Now I learned this Tim branches and leaves. Dab some leaves with medium green color. So for this you have to mix. But he didn't you. Quite a bit of black. We'll add some branches and some leaves in between. I'm so happy with the result. And the background is already looking so beautiful. To be in the foreground and complete the swim team. 9. Painting depth - Grasses: Next we will add some weight to this color. They collide, overridden new color. And we'll apply some leaves and grasses on the ground area just to distant land. Next we'll paint the grasses in the foreground area. So I'm going to take this pale green and mix a bit of black to make it darker. Or you can directly go over some green or darker green color. Just make sure that it is slightly darker than the base layer. So I'm going to dab the beams in uniform motion with my brush tip to achieve grass like effect. So you can also alter the direction. Next, I'm going to make some lemon yellow to get a lighter green kinda. I use this to create highlights on the grasses. We'll paint the grasses with this lighter green mix. So now if you absorb, the green is looking almost same as the background base layer. But you don't have to worry because it is going to look like the ones in place. A darker green. And then the grasses on that I'd say quite dark because this area has less than late and it is covered with darkness. Hence, the grasses will also be dark in color. And in the sunlit area, we will add some lighter green color to create bright and flashing grasses. I add some darker green color randomly in between the lighter green grasses. I will apply more grasses near the root of the tree. So I let you absorb mile I add more dimension in the grasses. Like I said earlier, I wonder what I turned off the painting to be darker because there is very less sunlight. I'm bending in the dark by applying more green. And for the green the corner, I don't want it to have sunlit prank. So I'm covering it up when black color, main mode of darker green gases on the right side and retain the lighter areas on the left side of the painting. Suppose the light was on the right side, then we had to paint the darker areas on the left side. Similarly for the upper and the bottom side, you have to paint the areas darker on the opposite side of the light. The darker grasses on the right depicts the cast shadow of the grasses, depicts though, pass shadow of the grasses. Some of the grasses, they appear darker in color. I'll dab some black paint on the branches. Okay, we're done with the grasses. Next we will paint some tiny trees using black below. We will paint it in the middle ground area. We will paint the branches in a loose and isn't globally. To create the leaves, you can dab some beams on the branches. So when you're dabbing your brush, you have to control the amount of pressure you apply. If you apply more pressure, you're going to get the ticker dabs. And when you apply less pressure, you will get when he find gaps. So keep that in mind when you're dabbing. 10. Foreground plants: Okay, Moving on. Let's paint a beautiful plant are tiny tree in the foreground. So I'll use black color to paint the skeleton of 23 first, using my fine liner brush. If you're using a tip brush, one good TIN lines. Then with black paint, I paint some leaves by dabbing my brush with the brush tip. You can use a fine liner brush, round brush with a pointed tip to get the node apps. Next we're going to take them some red. This color anticoag consistency, and apply it on the tree to depict some small berries or flowers. So adding that color adds a sense of contrast in the whole painting. Next, we will paint the grasses in the bottom-most park. So I'll mix black with green to get a very dark green color. So here I'm applying basic shape of grasses, like the ones we're doing every painting, like slightly curved lines. Next I'll add a pale green and apply some random brush strokes to suggest some leaves in the water media. So this will act as the base layer for the disease that we will paint. So as you can see, there is no much uniformity as such. I'm applying paint randomly and Dilemma satisfied with the look big black color and add some pains to suggest some dimension. Like I said earlier, I want this right side to be darker and left side to be bright. So I'm applying now Cobain's on the right side. In this painting, I'm not focusing on achieving perfect shapes. So you might have noticed, I have been taken most of the element with the dabbing technique and painting simple straight lines. So I have a very simple approach for this class. Even if you're not so great at drawing or painting, you can still attend this event. I'm not so great and drawings. So I personally prefer loose style of paintings. So here the aim is to that though, beams with all three colors, pale green, darker green, and black. So that we have nice radiation. In the bottom of the paper, apply some stray brushstrokes with black color. This is to add some dimension and also give an illusion of height. But the grasses in the foreground. Next trivial, apply some light green on the berry tree or the plant that is in the foreground. 11. Painting Flowers: Okay, So we are close to the finish line. Once we paint the foreground flowers, we will call it done. So I have a thin white paint on the palette. Now let us draw some white daisies. I'll also take a yellow ocher on my palette. So I'll use only a bit of this yellow ocher and mix it with the white to sort of achieve of white shade. You can even paint with your white or any other color of your choice. Just make sure it gives a nice contrast to the painting. So I load my size two round brush with the color mix and start painting the petals. Painted one by one. When you paint around six to eight tiny petals, that will give us a flower. The first few days is facing upwards and I'm assuming it is about to bloom. So only the half of the flower is visible to this viewpoint. Now the flowers which are fully miscible with stamen are deleted. The words w points. So we can fully with those flower. And the flower who's petals are facing towards the bottom, are fully bloomed and are about to shed the petals. I'm just trying to simplify so that you can understand the type of flower petals I'm painting. So whenever you want to be in flies on any object in January, take a reference picture and understand the shape and structure of the element that you want to paint, simplify the shapes according to your potential, and then figure out where the shadows and highlights will go. That will really help us to get organic looking up in. I'm also applying some dots to suggest dot flower bud and no garden. Paint as many flowers as you want. But ensure to have a variation in the flower type. Because painting only one single type of flower will make it look very uniform and not so organic. So have different types of shapes. Hi. Okay. Hi. The law. And apply small parts darts at the same cross each slide. Hello. Next I'll take some black color and brain stem using my fine liner brush. So here again, I am not following any particular rule. Just randomly applying some lines in different directions. You can start the stem right under the flower. So dab your brush with the same pinch to gain. Also dab your brush with paint to get tiny dots, which are the leaves in the flowery, which will depict the leaves and the flower garden. I'll dab some darker color on the tiny tree in the background. So next time adding some tiny seagrasses in the middle ground area. I'm using a black color for this. If the middle ground of your painting is already darker and you're satisfied with that, then don't attempt to stem. In my bending, it was not that dark enough. So I'm adding this black color. So if you are painting is already dark, please skip it. I'll dab some darker paint on the green grasses and also on the body plan. Next I will paint some grasses when the darker green condo. You can even use a sap green for this. Now, they could tissue paper and covered the upper part of the paper. This will prevent the paint from splattering all over the painting. So we want to splatter the paint only in the garden area. I load my brush with white paint and gently splatter dot white paint to create white dots in the painting. And the cells are just some small marks in the flower garden. All right, We are almost done. Lastly, we will add this slightly horizontal branch. So their trunk of this tree is outside the flame. So we will only paint the branches and some flats. So this will have some white flowers in it. Some white paint on my brush. I'm using size store and gently dab the white beans to depict the flowers. I'm applying white dots randomly on this very bland or I don't know what to call it exactly. I, again, add some darker colored leaves. I guess my black is not so prominent enough. Even after adding so many layers, I have not achieved the desired darker color. So yeah, I'm done with this painting. Now let us remove the masking tape. 12.
