About This Class

In this class we'll be learning to bring together a bunch of wildflowers into a bouquet.

We start by discussing the do's and don'ts of composing a bouquet, making our own color palette, mixing a variety of greens with limited colors, talking about water consistency, making sure our painting is bright but at the same time organic and harmonious.

We'll paint some pretty flowers, leaves, twigs and filler flowers in a slow and relaxed fashion. No part of the main project is sped up, which means you can paint along with me! So, take out those watercolors and brushes and have fun with me!

Hi! I'm Sushma Hegde.

I'm a self taught artist and watercolor lover from India, currently living in Luxembourg. I mostly paint with watercolors and gouache, and try to immortalize what I feel about the beauty of nature. Painting creates a sense of calm in me and I wish to create the same sensation in my paintings.

I've loved creating and had a great interest for art since childhood, but somehow my creative side took a back seat while growing up. A few years ago, out of sheer boredom, I took out my watercolors and started painting some flowers, and I was hooked!

I love learning from other artists and have slowly realized the joy of sharing what I know, no matter how simple or difficult I think it is. It makes me immensely happy when someone tel... See full profile

1. What's this class all about?: Hi, everyone. I'm such Mahadi, a watercolor artist who has been totally inspired by nature. You can see me painting flowers, trees, landscapes and all things nature all the time. If you're taking my other skin share classes, you already know how much a lot. Painting white flowers, the uncertainty and the bursts off color makes them so interesting. In this, cars will be learning to bring together a bunch of wife lovers into a booking, starting from discussing the dues and Don's of composing our old book, it removed, making a little color palette. Mixing a well. I tee off greens while making sure that our colors are bright but at the same time organic and harmonious. Then we'll dive in and learn some off the basic techniques so that we understand and learn some off the brush strokes. We'll also talk about interpreting elements in nature in our own way. Paint some pretty flavors, different kinds of leaves, some little strokes here and there to make a book a unique and full of life. I'll take you through the whole process slowly without speeding up any part off the main project so that you can relax and beamed along with me. We'll talk about how much water to makes with your beans, how to move your brush, how to give depth your painting and so much more. So join me as we create this beautiful spring bouquet. 2. Let's talk about composition: before we start painting, let's talk a little bit of world composition. I think knowing how to compose your bouquet is as much or maybe a little more important than painting it itself. So whenever I paint a booking, I just make sure that my flowers are in different shapes on different sizes. So what I do generally is I did three different sizes on three different shapes. So, for example, this is one sheep and then so these are the big rounded flowers. And then there are a bunch off lovers like this. Okay, No, I have 1/3 said, which is like this so you can see have already chosen three different don't lead different shapes and different sizes. And these are like the big ones and then slightly smaller and then really small flowers. So this is what I do when I'm composing a bouquet so that there is a lot of interesting features in my painting and not just focus on one set off lovers for So for example, I could I could just bring all of the's together and make a painting and makeup. Okay, that's totally okay when this is a book came but this wouldn't be as interesting as bringing all of the's together. Right? So let's talk about that, okay? We could just simply arrange these flowers like this. Just the three means I was here. And this, like this and the third set off lovers like this. This is totally okay. This is a book, it says. But when you look at this, you mean three focused flowers? Yes. These are our focus flowers because they're big and they're dominant over this whole book it. So this are the focus off the view. Oh, and they're all pointing towards this side on the second set of flowers are here, and these are so it's it's not very distributed on in distracts the viewer. So the viewer doesn't know whether he or she should look this side or here or here. So when you look at the painting as a whole, they will miss out a lot on it. So instead, what we're going to do is we are trying to make it as uniform as possible. So I start off with the big flowers first. So I'm doing this one here pointing in this direction. So now I have space. The site. So what I do ISS Maybe on one here. And this time in this direction. This is the span. This is this this site now this space here and I want to distribute it and I'm going ahead . So it's pointing in this direction. Okay? No, we have space. He'll here and here, which we need to fit. So one thing to remember is in bookcase. Most off the leaves are down. So it's like this. And the leaves are not much on dog. They are distributed down and the bigger here. So we leave this base for the leaves right now and now we have this base and the space left . So to separate these so flowers, I don't want them to be clustered together like this again. So I'm going toe add the second set off flowers here. And when you're adding this, you can just make them point in different directions. Not all of them pointing this way. So for example, some off them at the side, some this way. And maybe we could make them cool this week. I'm very roughly drawing all of this just to give you off. Give you an idea off what I usually think when I make these. So now you have the second set off level issue so that it has bridge the store with these flowers? No, Maybe we'll add a few here as well. Let's not add the completing with the second set off lovers here because then it's gonna look so crowded and it's going to take away the focus from these flowers. So we'll just add a few here, maybe pointing in this direction. Maybe some off them can point the side and some decide. And as we go down, it gets Benson as you go up, it gets enough. It's on here, or maybe some facing this direction. But I've kept this base year and this year like this, connect that. Okay. And we could fill this space with the third set of flowers because we have the space. You so, for example, like this and then maybe like this, or you could do anything like thistle and this whatever and no, to cover this pace. Just I'm gonna a few leaves here. Not so much, because again, I want the focus to be here. Just a few leaves. Maybe your spell. I can just make this look a little crowded with these, So I'll be adding leaves with different shapes, your and different greens so that they're not been a uniform. And now I could just bring all off this down like this, but I don't want so many stems to be seen here. I wanted to be wanted to look a little wild on to look a little crowded. Like as if you have just blocked the flowers from the forest are from the field. And you have made this book. It's not wearing you neatly curated and neatly got or anything, so I'm gonna eso it's going to be vile. So I'm gonna add one leave here, be so that I don't want just the stems coming down. I need to cover it up. Right. So I'm just going to add one, leave you and maybe one more hill on a few leaves. Your a swell is linens. And as I go down, I told you all you I need big leads here. And I wanted to be more crowded with leaves here down. So I'm gonna add one. Leave your big one, maybe one your needs here. So one on the way. Some off them will definitely be only way off the stand so that it covers the part so that you don't see the complete stem coming like that. So I intentionally put them on the way off the stem. Some are just next to the fellow a little, and then they come down. Okay, No bad raid. Now again, I can cover this with different kinds, off leaves and some leaves overlapping on these leaves so that they're not very uniform like this. And they give you a lot off depth. When you try to overlap, leave someone another. Because that's what bouquets are meals. And another element that I love adding in my paintings is thes little twigs. So, for example, I have some white space. You know, what I'm gonna do is had some drinks here, maybe even your own and some girl. So, yeah, you need to play around, see what sort you and see how you can spend a filled white spaces. So this is my mantra. Gist. Make sure that the base is filled with more leads. And as you want, dog, the flowers get smaller on, they are less distributed. I mean, they are less seen less visible on top and their small off. But here they are crowded, For example, here Oh, it's crowded betweens and even these can on off your war and this age, eyes again crowded with thieves. But we don't want to crowded too much. We want the bits off the stem to be seen, but we don't want the complete stems to be senior, and you can see that the leaves are also in different directions. So this is so much better than this one, right? So, yeah, play around with your compositions, try different angles. Try keeping different number off lovers. I could even add fire here. I would not for actually because again, that would lead to too much uniformity. And that loses interest. So because, for example, if I added one more here, it's like I'm just uniformly placing stuff here and there. I don't want that. I wanted to look why I wanted to look unintentional. So I'm going to do this. Yeah, but you can play it on. Maybe you can add one more barn yard for this. Maybe here and you were done. But the main composition. I hope you got an idea about how I do this. Now let's gettinto how we paint all of these players and meet this a colorful bunch. 3. What we'll need for the class: before we start painting, let's talk about all the materials you'll need to start the spending. So first is the piece of people I'm using. Fabbiano Artistic 0 300 GSM 100% Cotton paper. I insist you to use 100% cordon paper because it has a greater absorbency saw. Your paper stays wet for a longer time. When you apply your pain this way, you can blend different colors to it. So I always prefer using 100% Corton paper. You can use paper from any brand. It doesn't matter, but just make sure it's 100% cotton. Then I'm also using a little strip off people here, just a waste piece of paper so that I can make my color palette on this on. Be sure what colors I'll be using for this painting. Next, we'll talk about all the brushes that we need for this painting. We are using three precious one as a size to brush from ban. Got one is a size four brush from Silver Brush Limited. This is called silver Blackwell. Wait 3000 s around and then the size eat from the same Bryant. So make sure if you don't have brushes off the same size. It's okay to use one number about below these. That's totally okay, but just make sure that you have round brushes for this. Then let's talk about the beans. We'll be using two kinds of yellows. One is new gun board and oneness. Lemon yellow. And then there's one red, and we'll be using SAB green on one brown. This is a queen Ah, Crotone Gold and also say, Pia and then one blue, which is indigo. So these are our mean colors, and we have only one kind of Greenhill that a submarine and will mix five different kinds of greens just by using all of these other colors that we have. We'll also need a little bit off ultra Marine. Or you can use pressure in blue, aka Bar Blue. If you have that, and we need that toe along with sepia toe me god white. Yeah, I know that sounds funny, but yeah, you will see how we can make quite with these colors. So, doctor, with the colors, we also need ajar off clean water and you'll need a kitchen travel or a tissue or an old cotton cloth to wipe off your pain from your brush. So that's it. Now that we have all Armitage is, we can start painting. 4. Warm up techniques: okay, Before we begin with our mean painting, let's practice a few brushstrokes. So I've just taken some basic beings here. It doesn't matter which color. I just want to show you how I make some off the strokes so that you are more prepared toe being the main book it. So I have loaded my brush completely with the pain till, and I'll start off with the leave. So ah, basic thing. While painting the leave, it's just put your brush down and turn it a little bit and pull it out. This shook a bit. Let's try that again. So I'm going, dude, put it and lift it and twisted while you're lifting it. So then you will get this shop at Let's try that again. And this time I'm going toe Till now I did it this way downwards Right now. This time I'm gonna hold my brush like this and take it upward. So so that this way we can get in a different direction. Someone will do this press to waste and lift. It's a little harder to show you when I do it slowly. It could be a little more faster, so just do that. Can you go back and fix it? Justo, this fix the different, like the end and then do that this side again. You can see I'm doing it this week. So? And so we have a bunch of leaves them and then just connect them together. That's it. Okay, so similarly. No, we gotta hang off. How we mean, Believes Let's try with the flower. So I'm gonna take a little bit more off this yellow and similar to painting these leaves. I'm just going to do this. So you bring it down. Now it looks like a leave. And then do another one and another one on day. I'm just going What? A home with dad. So another one like that And then upwards, maybe one more hill and one downwards. And, you know, we have a flower. So it's similar to painting these leaves, but I'm just making a few off them incomplete. And I'm going to keep these white space it here and these gaps here. So all of this together makes a flower. So let's try that again. Now may be appointed this direction. So like that we have one leave. It's try bad. Okay, this was a big toe long, but that there will try to fix it. And now in this direction, still, don't you are You can see that as I come to these ends here. I'm not pressing my brush so much. I'm just doing the I'm just touching it, but ends that and yeah, you have another flower. Similarly, you could make a little Bart. So another leave and another leaf and some white spaces here and done. You have another small flower here. Another kind of flower that I like to add is maybe I'll change the color so that you can see the difference. Let me take some red and I switched to a smaller brush. This is a face to a grudge, and what I'm gonna do is again. I've loaded my brush completely. Not just the tip. We had a little bit off watered word kid and I just told this just gentle brushstrokes. Just pulling it down like that. Don't put it down again. I'm making sure that's in different directions. And now we can connect them just pulling it down, making go. We structure here just randomly connecting it. And we had another set off flowers here. Similarly, we could add some tweaks. And for that, what I do is just a this and make no committees very similar to this. Want to get the ends and bring them together? And you have one off these phyllo leaves. Now, let me just join these because they look a little incomplete to me. I know. I'm just bringing them together on that's it. So, yeah, I hope you got an idea off. How? Make some off these basic strokes on. We'll be using all of this in our beating. If you want to learn this in more detail, I would definitely suggest you to try my other two skill share classes on painting Florence . And we dive a lot deeper into painting these florals in much more detail in those classes. So, yeah, we can start with our main painting now. 5. Building our color palette: Okay, So before we begin, painting will need to prepare a color palette so that we know exactly what colors will be using for the book. So let's start off with the main color. And in this smoking might mean color will be yellow. And I wanted to be a little warmer yellow because I want to show the sunny spring go feeling my painting. So I'm taking this new gun, Borj, and I'll be adding a little bit off lemon yellow to red. And this is my mean pile. So let me just put it Teoh and maybe a little darker. Some doctor regions would be looking mixed with bread. I also want a reddish brownish mixture for this to give it a nice body feels so. What I'm doing is I'm taking a little bit off this red and as mixing it with Quinn accrued on gold. I don't want too much off the brow. You can also use raw sienna here in South quinacrine gored and yeah, I'm not I didn't do much around because I want the reddish color to show and I want to be a little body. So let me add that your we could add a little bit more red if we want as another tone off the scholar No one move lover that I want in this book A is in white and bending in white and watercolors is not that easy. So what we're gonna do toe me quite in self using white being directly because that will be hard to see on this paper. So what we'll do is we mix our own right, and for that right now, my palate is empty. Otherwise, whenever if I have any color on this, I just take a dirty mixture off that. So right now what we can do is take a little bit off the queen. Ah, Crotone goal that we have and maybe a little bit off ultimate into it to make it a little grayish. So this has a grayish greenish them to it. And now you can see the Sondra Delight. But I want to make it lighter so that the brown color doesn't show some. I didn't just lots of water to it, and now you can see how like this is right now. So what I do is just take a little bit off this and Yeah, this is that way. You can see a little bit of brown here right now, but once this dries, this will look a lot like white. And so we have our three main colors now. And let's go to the leaves for the leaves. My favorite color to use a sap. So what I do is we have a sap green as one off our greens now. So I just died keeping that and then do the sacking. We can add a little bit off whatever color is very using here. So, for example, new gun boards. I'm going to add a little bit of green to that, and we already have another shade of green. Similarly, what we can do is take a little bit off this mixture and add to the green. Don't have too much. Then it will be brown. See, now it's more browned and being so I'm going a little bit more. So now I have a very OD. Nice cream. I really like this green, actually, on another cooler green that we can get is if we take into go someone to take a little bit off indigo just a little bit and I want to mix it with green. So now I have a pretty cool green. It is a nice clean right. So we already have four different kinds of green. One is that accepting that one, a submarine mixed with this yellow and then some cream mixed with this red. And this is happening mixed with indigo. And now you can see the white hill. As it dries, it becomes lighter. And it looks so much more better because it is transparent and not very own, opaque or chalky, like the usual rights that we get. Okay, now that we're finished using our colors, I think we can go ahead and start the painting now. 6. Yellow flowers: Okay, So? So to start off with the painting, I have my colors prepared. Her first is new gum boards with lemon yellow and then red with a little bit off quinacrine own goal. And they're submarino on Well makes indigo and other colors based on what greens we want. So for us, we'll start off with them mean flavors. That is the yellow flowers. So I'm going toe pain. Them mean highlight flowers. First, I'm using a size eight brush that is the bigger one because I want big flowers. So I'm going toe dip my brush completely in the paint so that it's fully read and not just a dip. I make a little flower here, just like we paint leaves a swift motion going downwards. And as you can see, I'm leaving these little white gaps here in there so that it doesn't look like a big blob. So yeah, that's it. Now we already have a flower, so similarly, we'll make another one. So this one is pointing this way. Let's make another one which points in this direction. Maybe I did you so you can see I'm making it just like we pay into leaves but just making it big, good in some places and smaller than the other. I'm making sure that they're not exactly the same, but similar in structure. That's it. Let's try that again. We be one Hell, maybe this one is not pointing so much in this Diagne election, but a little upwards. So it's always better to have in mind which direction you want. The whole painting, Toby. So for me right now, my plan is to have the painting go from here like this. So it's a book? A. So all the stems will be here down and that distributes all over the page like this on top . So I think this is enough. Three off these big flowers and off. We don't want to add too many. So this is a small piece of people. This is a feisty insides, so I don't want to crowd this with a lot of flowers, so I just keep a Tony three off them so that we can add the other kinds of flowers as well . So while this is still with what I'm going to do it, I'm going to take a smaller batch. That's the size full brush and just take a little bit more off this yellow. So it's off greater in density. And I'm not mixing much water. Tow this and I'll just add on the tips you so that it spreads evenly on this. So you have to do this when the paint is still wet so that you don't get hard lines on this . You could also add a little bit off orange of the tips and even that would look good. Maybe we can try that. I'm just take already a little bit off radio. I'm going toe act that the text so that it gives a little bit more radiation in the flower . Okay, we're done with the first set of flowers. We cannot more into the second set of flowers using these colors. 7. Red flowers: for the second set off flowers will be using this red and brownish mixture. And I don't want those lovers to be as because these because these are mean focus flowers, and I want to keep them small. So I'm going to take it in a brush here and let's load the brush completely with paint. And we're gonna add a little marks. Maybe here, because we have more space here and maybe a few hill. So it's nice to distributed evenly over the point people so that it looks more interesting . So you can see I'm just making ready small marks here. Nothing in particular. It's just thoughts and dash. Maybe I had a few more hero, okay? And some hell, maybe he will make a little bit off them point this way and some this way so that we can give more movement to the painting. So I make a few go this way so you can even start by adding the stem here and then doing this. But I generally like it like this so that I have more control over what direction I wanted to go. That's why I had the Stanley don't generally good. We had a few more you so you can see I'm not making any particular shape. I'm just touching my brush almost perpendicular to the paper. That's sick. We can win. This is still with. We can add a little bit off contrast weight, so maybe I will take dot com. Make shelf this same thing. You can see I've added less water to this compared to this one. Dab off some off it. If you think it's too much on your brush and just when it's still wet, I'm looking dogs, especially at the tips. You can see that if it's not fully wet, it will leave hard lines on it. But that's totally okay right now, because these are tiny. But try toe award doing that. See, look at these. These are almost fully dry, so you can see these lines here. This is fine. Okay, that's enough. Let's add the third set off lovers, and then we can come back to Addis Stem and the leaves for all of the's 8. White flowers: I want to paint these for my coat. Set off flowers and these are called put See below and look at how funny these are. And these are almost white, So painting this may well be a little hard for us, especially on especially with water colors. So if you observe this closely, you can also see that in the center it has. These dark sports is well, it's not just fully white, so we'll remember that. And also though stem is a jet blackish brown color hill Onda, the buds are on the signs off that. So we'll keep that in mind when we're adding this. I feel this is a very nice filler in in general, even your bookcase or even in your paintings. So the main thing is to create White. And as we discussed this earlier, I'm going to prepare that now. So I'm taking a little bit off Ultra Marine and I'm going toe ad some off this one. Ah, Crotone Gold. So I now have almost green. Let me add a little bit off sepia. Tow it. Tow document. We'll be fine. Yeah, it's more visible. No. So I have a grayish mixture. Gokce greenish mixture. Let me switch to a smaller brush and I'm gonna add lots of water to it. You can see how much water I'm adding here it's almost s more water than the paint itself, and that's exactly what we want to do. And no, I've loaded my brush. I'm gonna dab off a little bit on the seashore and let's add two off. He's here, so I'm gonna make very little circles. You can see it's a little dark here, but that's okay. Once it dries, it will become light. But if you think it's too dark when you're painting it, just try. I don't know what that would, and we let me also show you what you can do. So, for example, this one has a lot off pigment. So what I'm going to do is I have completely clean my brush now, and I'm just going to lift it and wipe it off on my paper. So the same thing just lived it and wipe it off. So it's already lighter than what it was earlier. So you can know this minutes fully. Wait. You can't do this when it's dry, because then it's going to leave a mark. So be quick when you're doing this. Okay, let's try that again. You can also see him doing this, alternatively, something similar to this. We're not making an exact copy off this just to get the essence offered. So it's OK if it doesn't look exactly like this, so don't stress on that too much. I think that's enough. Maybe living. Just add one more hill. It's a little too dark, so I'm going to lift it off as this is still wet. I'm going toe. Add a little bit off the doctor mix that we have you. I can add a little bit more off sepia. Tow it, and I'm just going to add it at the bees. So we should make sure we do this when it's still wet so that it spreads evenly and you can see how beautifully it's spreading to it. This one has dried, so it's not spreading, but Thurtell kill. It's not meddle too much with it and just leave it as it is okay when this has spring, so that's fine. The 10 years when we look at the whole painting, we should feel that these are actually white So I think this already achieves that, and as it fully drives, we can see that it gets lighter. Okay, so now we're done with the third set off lovers. We'll just have to act the stem for this and the stems for all of these and a lot of leaves . You can see this region is still empty. And, as in drill book it, the leaves are more plastered as we go down. And there are. Leslie isn't or so Let's remember that and continue, but adding the leaves in the next lesson. 9. First set of leaves: let's start by adding the use for this. I'll taken sapping here, but I don't want to use it directly. I want it to look a little more natural than this. I feel this is too bright for this composition. So I'm going to add a little bit off new convergent. Wait. And I think this will give a more spring in somebody wiped to it. So we have this bright greenish mixture and I'm going to add a lot of water. Tow it, and I'm gonna make one big leave. Mindy healed and I make it pointing downwards. So I just breast and lift it. Let's try that again. Just press it and lifted. So I did this twice because I wanted a big beef here. Otherwise, even the first stroke was enough. Okay, let's do one more here. So President fully And then when you lifting it, try turning it a bit. So that way you get this sharp line and then okay, know when this is still wet, I'm going toe add a little bit off this sap green to it. So I'm just adding a few drops off the submarine. No, I'm not taking the dye pigment. I'm mixing it with a little bit off water here so that it's not to take. If it's don't take it. Wants bread. Even beyond this, some just figure out what consistency you'll need. Just drop it. Don't don't rob. Overdid it. Just drop it slightly, very gently on the leave. Let's add a few more leads as this one drives. I'm taking this yellow makes to dream and maybe it. I want you maybe one him. We do not cover the whole thing, but one kind off leave will come back and add a few more different kinds of leaves so that we have a lot of variation here. I mean, just add a little bit off that sap green on these is where? Okay, so for another green, what I do is I takes up green and I mix in to go with it, so I get a cooler green. But it's much Doc. Oh, and I don't want to be swallowed up dark right now. I want to add all light Green's first so that I can come back to it when it's dry, and then I can add darker colors over it, so that when you look at it, it looks like that leaves overlapping on one another, and that's what we want. So I've added lots of water to this green and technical mixture so that it's like so that's the beauty with water colors. You would not add black or anything to make it dark, or you need not at white to make it light. Just control your water and you will get the color you need. Okay, since these leaves are still wet, I not go over it. I'm just going to add it on the sides. We can change the shape of these leaves a bit. I'm going to make them a little ruffled and wide, so I'm just going to add this so these you can see at a little uneven. And I wanted that way so that there's a balance off these need leaves and these uneven leaves. If you think your brush has too much more, just habit off on your shoe every time to take something. Also, remember to bury the shape of the size off your leaves, so as you can see when it's down, I'm adding big leaves. And as I go up, I'm adding smaller leaves. So you can also, lady, that you're gonna add some most more leaves at the bottom. It's and you can see they're all in different directions, someone going downwards, some upwards, some diagonally on the site. So try to add a lot of movement in your painting. That way we can add a little bit off into goto this to give it a doctor. Look, So I'm just taking in development. Lots of water. And I just dropped back here in there. That's it. I just add a few lines and strokes like this, just very randomly adding these lines, nothing in particular. Just as I said, to give movement to your painting. Okay? No, let's wait for these leaves to dry so that we can come back and add a few more leaves over that, and we still have to be in the stems so we'll come back after this drive in the next lesson 10. Stems and more: Okay, Now that thesis leaves have dried, we can go over it with another set off leaves and add more depth to the pain, too. On also, we can add the stem for all of the's and also the end off the book. So I'm gonna take a smaller breath brush now that the size for brush and let me start by adding the stem. So I'm gonna take whatever greenest there on my parents. Maybe I'll are a little bit off sap green on a little bit off the yellow. I usually like toe add Carlos, which are relevant to that flower, for example, water meanness. So this is a yellow off level. So when I add the stem only used for this flubber, I just takes up green and mix this yellow to it. So if I want green for this, I'm gonna take submarine. And at this, that do it. So So I think that gives it a more harmonious look. So this is what I do. And I think that way we can get a bad idea off clean as well. So I'm going to start by adding these little strokes near the flower. Uh, I try not to cover the white region here. I'm just ready. Quick strokes downwards. Make me act the stem Ready gently and just taking a line. Just dab off some of text dropping. Which is that on your brush? If it wanted Toby toe wet and I won't go over this leave. I just pulled it here downwards like it's hidden behind that leave. And as I go down a little more swift here and I just pull it down. So let's try that again for this one. So I start with the stem here and then it's hidden by this leave. So I go down and again hidden by this lover. I don't want to go over this flower on. I feel it will lose focus. So I'm just going down like this and pull it down. So when you do this, just make sure that the stamp here is crisscross and happy, sad, and you don't want them neatly stack one next to the other and the same thing you're Then quickly bring it down. Okay, Now, let's add the stem for this one. I'm going to take the smallest brush that's the size to brush because I want these lines to be very small and I'm going to take submarine and a little bit off when I heard on gold on a little bit off the red. So basically this mixture alone Wait a little bit off Saptari. I want this to be a little dark, so I think I got the right mixture here. I'm not adding too much water. Tow this. I wanted to be a little take so you can see I can actually draw lines on this with this. So I want that consistency that off some of Texas paint on your issues, You need to let me started on this side. So I'm just going toe join this Not really precise lying sort on a team. I'm just making these little we stop Joe's on joining them. We had some so you can see have left a few gaps in between. I'm not funded with a lot of lines, and I like doing that just so that it's not too crowded. Just going to add a few tweaks. You like the flowers have ordered reforming off. You can hold the brush here like on most offenses when you're doing this. So that you get fine lines. So it's all about how you hold your brush. So when you want where you lose strokes, you can hold the brush here. And if you want really find gladdens, you can go closer to the tip off the brush. That guy's still the same. Thank you for this one. Just making little we structures to connect them. You can also directly you stay PR if you like to make this a little more intense in self mixing the green and red. But it gives a more organic Callum and you mix it with a little bit off the red and the green King. We can do the same thing, you know. Okay, so now I'm gonna bring these down like this here. And of course, they are hidden by some off the meals. So let me just join some of them here. Maybe some come this way. So it's all left to your imagination. How you want. Oh, but get down and make it look more natural. Similar onIy This one. I think I take it this pain so you can start from here, Artist. Okay, so now you can see we have different colors away. Oh, it's so important to have a lot of aviation here so that it just doesn't look like one decline. So we should make sure there are different kinds off green. Serious? Well, not just over the leaves. Okay. Four, we still need toe ad the stem for this one on. As you can see, the stamp your is lady dog and a dark, brownish, almost blackish Carlo. So I'm longer dig se be awful. That because I think it suits exactly what color I need you and maybe add a little bit off when Oprah don't gold to it to give it a brownish touch. Okay. And no, just connect this. You can switch to a small over a short spell. Yeah, I think I would switch to the small Omani, so I'm using the size to brush. And I just found this are putting like this on the dog. So, as I said earlier, this nino look exactly like this, but just give the essence of it. So when somebody sees this painting, they know what kind off flower I'm trying to depict here. So that's all Mattos. Okay. We can bring this stone as well and one more line here and this is a doctor one compared to the previous one. So, yeah, that's it. Now we can continue to add some more leaves and fill all of the's white caps. 11. Filler leaves: So in order. Tofail, All of these white caps I'm going to take the same green stuff. Be prepared on your so a little bit off when entre don't gold Sorry, A little bit of sap green and I bit off Connacht reknown gold to it so we can use the same greens that me used here in a different inside intensity as well. So I'm taking a small brush and let me add some leaves over this now so I'm gonna add leaves off a different shape. This time I'm going to make it round. Let me add some more hill. And if you heal just a few wrong leaves and some one more small leave you maybe one on this. So basically, I'm coveting the white spaces with these leaves. But it's OK if you don't want Tony use, we can add leaves off a different shape. Different color on these as well. In the end, it in a brush to coming these and just randomly adding a few lines, trying to connect easily. Uco some more lines off the same color could also on 11 Ebert off this green over these lines when he leaves. So I'm just making these very quick queens. What were these thieves? We can try that Here on top is Lee. So, as I said, are you? As we go on dope, we add smaller lease or no leaves at all. So just add a few leaves like they're peeking out from him. Maybe a few here, if you would excuse it is. And a few twigs just draw lines and add a few dots. Some tiny teams just as follows for all these blank spaces in between. So you can just decide where you feel. There's a little bit off white space left and you could cover them. Then just go and at these little leaves there. So I this accord phyllo leaves. Basically, you were just tiny leaves here and there you will faII these little spaces, but make sure you don't cover all off the white space. You really want some off this white space to be seen. So some cov lines your so add More interesting thing. Just add a few more lines. I don't like how these leagues have told out. So what I'm going to do is I just take a little bit off the screen you let me add a little bit off into court where toe make it stop, and I'm just going to go over there so that doesn't distract so much and just adding some lines to cover. Cover that up. So, yeah, if you don't like some part of you, can just go over it. And I had a few more leaves, some tiny exalted without trying toe. But I adore for anything, so it'll draw less attention to that region off your thinking. That's it we've done most off. The painting is almost done now. What is left is adding literally days on these flowers because we can add a little more attention to these clubbers and make them pop up. And we can also add some splatter is here to make to give more interest of this side off the painting as well. So we'll come back to do that, and then we're done with the spindle 12. Splatters and final details: so I want to add a little bit off interest to these flowers. So what I'm gonna do is take my 10 brush and take a little bit off this red mixture. Let me clean my brush totally first. So I'm going to take a little bit off lead and at it took my new gun Borj, so that I get an orangish Carlo been dedicating this day. I mix it with the US very. But don't or you can make a bright orange like this so that there's no handoff brown on it , and you can see this mixture is a little thick. It's not, not added too much water to it. Dab off some off the paint on my tissue, which I don't need, And I'm just going to add thin lines over this so we can add some off the legs over the white spaces as well. And as I grow up, I just made these little dots so quick clean, pull your brush upwards and he starts. So let's try that again. Reclines like that. They know the one next to the other, just randomly adding it and then and some dots. Let's try that for the other flower. So I'm covering the white spaces, as you can see here. But I'm not fully covering. It'd The white space is still visible and that is really important. Toe upwards and little dots. Yes, you do it. If you're finding it hard to make 10 lines, then switched to a smaller brush than this and you'll get 10 aligns. So if you have some hard lines while we're painting the flowers, now is the time to cover it up. But some off this so doctored with these flowers, let me add a few splatters here on a little bit your to me. These levels look like it's in our bigger class toe and makes the painting more interesting that you let me make some water with this and I'm going to Lord my brush completely. I'm taking the size for cash for this. I don't want to take a bigger brush for this because then this platters will be too big. So I'm going to take the snow and dab off some off the excess paint that you have just like that. And in one hand horde the brush which is came and guy and in the other hand on your right in your eye. Time on board. In your dominant hand, hold the dash, which is loaded with the pink, and then very slowly come close to the paper and gently slap it. So this way you get nice controlled splatters. Let's try to you. If you want comfortable, you can even hold your brush like this. Just hold it like this. Turn it and just stop your finger over it like this when you're making splatters just careful around you. This platters can spread all over your table, but I think that's the fun part off painting like this and its water colors so you can just wipe it off, said one. Don't worry about that. We can also add a few splatters here but green at the bottom to give it a wilder look. I'm just taking green and again just my hand. I'm going get capital. You can cover the yellow number so that the green doesn't fall on it. You can even keep a piece of paper hill that sent so we don't have too many splatters. We don't want to crowded with a lot of splatters. Just a bit here and a bit here, that's it. So we're done with this painting 13. Bonus painting: as a fun bonus project. I thought we could just mean all that we learned in this class. In one piece of people may be known as a bouquet, but just bring them all together in that people. And I think it's gonna look cool. So let's just get started on paint. All that we learned on this people as individual elements and just have fun. No way . No way. No way . No way , No way. No way , okay. 14.
