Hello Everyone !!

Hello, Everyone

I'm Sukrutha, the artist behind @watercolors_by_sukrutha on instagram..

Paints & Papers have always fascinated me.. I have tried various different mediums over the years but none of them are as better an option as watercolor medium..the magical flow of paint on wet paper, the thrill of unpredictability, the magical soft end results were my final answer..!!!

I always challenge myself to explore and experiment different themes and subjects.. I share my thoughts on failures and successes equally on instagram..its all such an interesting process and my life with watercolors is always an adventure..:)

I teach watercolors privately, on my instagram profile as well as here on skills... See full profile

1. Welcome !!!: Hello, DO events. I'm back with a new class today. And that is waterfalls. I used to obsessively pain to order falls at the beginning of my journey. And I was not so good at the time. But a couple of months ago, I have been a beautiful one or grow waterfall seal. And I was asked to make a class on that here. So here we are. We will discuss lots of techniques required to paint waterfalls. By Trump techniques. We also have three wonderful class projects which have carefully picked for beginners, as well as advanced as this. So sit back, relax because your art supplies, and let's go back into view. So unfilled watercolor word files. 2. Art supplies: So coming to our suppliers are used. As per paper, I use Fabriano 200 GSM cotton paper. It's acid free and nihilist by them. I would cut them according to the size that I wish. And the colors that I have used are mostly dark colors. And there are three types of integrals that I have used here. One is from Daniel Smith, the other is from Somalia. And the other one, I think high lasted somewhere. Let me go fetch it. And it's from white knight upon. So these are the dream because I have used, and other than that, I have also used Python script to mix it up with indigo sometimes. And the most important pain that we all need for waterfalls is white gosh. If you don't have white gosh, you can use normalize watercolor brushes. I only ever use. 31 is number four, mA brush. I use it for initial washes. Sometimes I use it to paint the whole landscape as well. I think it's my favorite. You already know that? And this, this one is number do brush. I usually use this to paint smaller subjects that are too big for this one and those model for this one. And this small brush is my favorite. I usually paint trees, small trees, and I use it for us flattering and also paint balls with it. Then this main supplies. How does the supplies that I've used are palette. I have used two palette for this class projects. These are ceramic and actually I think that small one is not ceramic. I don't know what you know what it is and what else. And let me think. I have used glass jar of cars to pour water. I have used two of these tissues have caused I have used a lot of these actually Renato tissues after, you know, shooting this tutorial. And the last supply is masking tape to tape down the papers and whatnot. And like I always say, use the supplies that you are comfortable with, not what I'm using right here. But if you wish to try these supplies that I have mentioned, you are welcome to do so. Hope you find this art supplies video in 12 Medea and see you guys in the next video. And thank you for watching. 3. Techniques - Leaving White Space: So we're going to paint three class projects in this class. So all of them have specific techniques that are. So the first one would be how to paint the waterfalls they observed in all these class projects, the waterfalls are painted by leaving the whitespace MD, in between two mountains. And in this video, we're going to learn how to paint exactly diet. So we're going to call that technique as leaving the white space. And it's going to be technique number one. For this, I'm going to refer class project three of the waterfalls because it's my favorite and I think you guys answer like it more than the other two projects. Please know that other two-plus projects also have the same technique, that is waterfall in between the mountain. First, take a nice brush that you are comfortable with. And I'm gonna start right here. And I will take indigo. I have kept the water jar right here as well so you guys can see when to use the water. So take indigo. Though I have been done in this way. Mountain, mountain and mundane. In-between these three mountains, there'll be two waterfalls. Again to replicate the same thing here. With their pain. At first, make broad lines and then just drag the beam down using the brush. Do not use extra water here. The pain down. Now DPO brush in the water. And with the same red brush, just sort of blend. Mountains. Together, but do not add any paint in the middle. So it sort of gives you that white color look. Reaching Gun, looks like waterfall. Bid the same process to the next mountain as well. Now the paper is wet, so I'm gonna take some more paint and I'm going to add it to the mountains. So again, when it dries, it's going to look soft dough because the paper is wet here. So basically, this is how I paint the waterfalls in between the mountains. And this is a very confusing technique because there are two techniques involved in this single technique. One is a dry brush. The attorneys were downright technique. And we're gonna do this exercise one more time. So I can explain both dry brush and veterans and how, you know how it is involved in this technique of painting waterfalls. Like I said, while you're painting waterfalls between two mountains leaving the whitespace, you have to go through two techniques. One is dry brush, the other is wet and wet. Now I'm gonna show you where exactly those techniques will appear. So the first step would be bending a line of indigo and then just dragging the pain down without using any water. So this is where the driver's technique is annoyed. Now, immediately DIYbio brush in the wada and without removing water from the brush. Just gone blend amount. And that is where the veteran right technique will come into action. Processes very easy and simple when you're painting it, but it's difficult when you're trying to explain it. So my suggestion would be to follow my hand moment and my brush moment. And, you know, take very good paper and a very good brush that you are comfortable with. And yeah, that's it. That's all you need to paint the waterfalls. Like I said, I have US DO techniques to achieve this effect. That is one is diverse technique. Technique. Now, in the next video, we will discuss briefly how the diverse technique is achieved and we are done with technique as well. So see you in the next video. And thank you for watching. 4. Techniques - Dry Brush: So in the last video, we have discussed about how to paint a waterfall in between the mountains and how to live the whitespace in the metadata. So for doing that, I like I said, we have to use a dry brush technique as well as we are done with technique. Both. So this video is for briefly discussing about dry brush technique. And it's going to be our technique number two or dry brush technique. We need to have disobey birth ready. If you don't want to use them, you can use a normal cotton cloth. It could have said many times, use the brush. You are comfortable with singing ego. I'm gonna draw two broad lines. And I'm going to just drag the pain down without using any extra order. It's the most important, but you don't have to use more water for this outdated tissue paper and remove all the excess water that is present on the brush. Brushes very dry now, as you can see. Now with that brush, drag the pain down. So we're painting the mountains here. And the middle place where we did not paint anything is where the waterfalls will come. Now This is it. This is the dry brush technique that we're going to incorporate while painting the waterfalls. But to complete this and to show you guys how to paint the waterfall, again, I'm gonna add some more water. And I will just blend the doom on dense together to leave the white space in the middle and waterfall. And I want to discuss a few things before we proceed to the next video. So far, painting waterfalls, be dri, drive, restrict Nick are written with technique, anything. You need, a very good brush. I'm not talking about the brand here. I'm talking about the brush that you are comfortable with. So once you are sorted out with the brush, you need to concentrate on the table. If it is not a 100% cotton they bought, then it's going to be very hard to blend all these colors together, more dense together, and the waterfall will not look as often as it does here. Some people have asked me about how, how you know, when the brushes comfortable. So you're seeing two brushes here, water from the same brand, but they are different in sizes. And this one fits right in my hand. So I can easily manipulated as I want. So as you can see it, you know, I am just filling we're familiar with it. That's how you know, you got the right branch. And I have gone through many trials before I found my brush. So, yeah, that's how you have to find the neuron by trial and error. I think that's it for this video, we will move on to the next one, and thank you for watching. 5. Techniques - Wet on Wet: So the next technique we are going to discuss is Veteran read technique. It's gonna be technique number three. And I'm going to discuss it very briefly. The main indention for me to discuss about radon wet while bending waterfalls is to get this softer look. That is where the mountain and the water both are blended together. It's going to look like the water is in full force. So yeah, that's why it's important that you need to incorporate this veteran with technique. So this is like an extension from leaving the whitespace technique and drivers technique. So you know how to paint till then. So dry, strike in a broad line using indigo and drag the pain down. And that's going to be dry brush technique. Now, date the water on your brush and it's going to be beta1 right from now on. And carefully blende just off the mountain as well as the middle empty part of the mountains. I'll blend as much as possible until it feels right to you, follow your intuition. So books off my downward is you can add extra pain if it feels like the painting just smoothly blend itself. And I think I'm going to stop right here. And this is the exact technique I have used to paint the waterfall of my favorite This one plus project tree. And I hope you liked this technique and please practice before you proceed with your class projects. And we're going to move on to the next video. Thank you for watching. 6. Techniques - Using White Gouache: Now this is one of the simplest techniques. So sometimes when you're blending two mountains and leaving the white space in between, the light will not be you not completely right. There will be a little bit of blue mixed in it. So what you can do is to highlight the white color. You can use light Gosh. And using their dry brush technique, you can slightly brush up the white paint on the innovator, the waterfall is, and you will see the results. Now, I'm gonna show you how to paint it. I have taken whitewash already on my palette. I'm gonna demonstrate the technique now discussed about the dry brush technique. So once again, I'm gonna dry it. First. I'm going to take some paint on the ballot. So it's going to be easier for me to just pick it up when the brushes dried. Wash away all the pain from your brush, and using the tissue paper, dry up the brush, completely. Separate the Brazils. Pick up the pace and just This is both one last time. Enough of it so much. Such a simple technique, but it's also very important. And I have used this technique for all the class projects because it's not just enough to have this instant effect underwater and makes the white color bar, but this technique, all you need, his wide Gosh and tissue paper and good brushes. If you don't have white gosh, you can use not mile wide Guatemala as well. So that is it for this video. See you guys in the next one, and thank you for watching. 7. Techniques -Elements: So we're gonna discuss something called elements. That is, whatever extra that is that we have entered in this Landscapes, in this class, projects will be discussed here. So when you see the mountain and waterfall, you can also see there will be trees around and a few rocks here and there in the water and birds. So these are all, I have concluded as element. And I will briefly show you guys how to paint these. Well, first subject we are going to discuss is rocks, the darker shade of indigo. And just paint a random shape, which will you not at least resemble the rock. You don't have to be very specific. You don't have to paint the shadows. Water will be present. And obviously so to create that effect, you need to wash away your brush blended into the paper. That's how I usually paint that. Ok, somebody's gonna do one more exercise so that you guys can practice. These rocks usually look complicated to pain. And I hope you liked this tutorial. Let's just jump into the next one. The next element is a dried-up branches. You can usually see none of my class projects in today's class is A-sharp brush. Brush very loosely. So these dried-up branches that are in my class projects, I'm going to show you how to paint them as well. Yes. The same straight line as exact. Closer. So you guys can see it clearly. And I hope you liked this video. Let's move on to the next element. Is, but I'm going to take this model brash, and I will take darker indigo. And I will draw only two lines, each opposite to each other. So, and that's one of the easiest way to draw the birds. If you find it difficult to paint. As just a habit. I hope you liked this brief elements. Let's move on to the next one. 8. Let's Rough Sketch !: Oh, we have talked about a lot of techniques till now. So about the whitespace and dry brush were done right? And using the white clash and all sorts of elements that we need to complete the landscape. So I dot, I will make a rough sketch of waterfall before jumping into the class projects. And I'm going to use my round brush number forgone brash and number one brush, a small one, and a few tissue by birth and paint. And in that light gosh is also important. And using all those, let's paint a rough sketch and see how it goes. So first, read the paper with clean water and I'm using my brush, Roma brush. Remember, all of our class projects starts with adding the sky, including this rough sketch as well. I'm using indigo here, only at the top of the paper and remaining just blended into the paper. I'm going to add one more layer of indigo because the previous one looked very dull. And after this, I'm gonna give this word drying. Once it dries, we can start with our mountain and waterfalls. Like we have discussed in Techniques video, dry abroad line first, leaving the whitespace in the medulla. This is the drive restrict me. I hope you guys remember it and practiced as well. And on your brush and make it into wet. And blend them all together. Leaving the whitespace in the middle. Blend until it feels right. This good enough for me. I'm going to move on to the next step. Below the water. The water is collected. Rocks, like we have discussed in elements, we deal. On those mountains using light Gosh, I'm just going to brush up some pain. Some white paint, like we had discussed in Elements video. It's got the class project. This is a startup sketch. And I thought it would be nice to include all the techniques that we have discussed. Rough sketch so that it'll be easier when we move on to the class projects. This graph sketch we have discussed in the techniques video. I hope you like this and let's move on to the next video. Thank you for watching. 9. Class project - 1 Background: I'm going to start the project by selecting the color. And I am using only one color for this, that is indigo. So you can say it's a monochrome. And I'm using white knight indigo today. And I have an extra pan of 13. I usually buy extra for my work. So I'm gonna take that color and I will sketch it out for you guys. And you can see the color. And this is one of my favorite brands, especially for this color, indigo. As you can see this such a rich. And it's also, I think, I believe, is a perfect mix between grey and blue. And please know that you can use whatever color you have. It doesn't have to be indigo, although it doesn't have to be white knights Indigo you can use, or do you think is best for this landscape? And now that we have selected the color, we can proceed to the next step. I think you guys might have noticed that I've changed my table set up just a little bit. It's because there you can see the water jar and how much water I am using an also the palette here so you can see the color. I'm using, RM taking on my brush as well. Now, we will start by reading the paper with clean Nordau like usual. And I'm taking the color indigo and I will just paint it on the top of the paper. This is the sky, not painting the end dire of the paper because there will be mountains here. And don't paint a very thick sky. Just lightly brushed the color to the paper. Now I'm going to blend the remaining colors into the paper. Now you might see light color here, but when it dries, you don't see it at all. It will be white. And yeah, now I'm gonna keep this for drying. And now we'll come back once it's dry. And one tip, please give the tissues ready. We really need it in our next step. So dishes ready. And now I'm gonna take indigo, but I'm taking the lightest shade of indigo. He'll make sure you're adding more water than the pigment to get the lighter shade. You don't need to read the paper here. So we're going to just paint a mountain with the lighter shade of indigo is like we have blended the sky. We're going to blend this mountain here as well. Because this bounded will be in the background. And it doesn't have to be, you know, appealing or it doesn't have to be. So make sure you're using lighter shade here. So we have talked about blending before in one of our previous techniques videos. So just keep adding the water and then make sure you dilute the pain. Once you're done the blending mountain party still that you need to adjust a few parts of the mountain. So this is where you need the tissue paper, remove the excess water from your brush using the tissue and just, you know, follow your intuition and adjust the mountain as you please. I'm just trying to create the misty effect in these mountains. So I'm just going to remove the paint. Like I said, I'm just following what feels right to me. If you think this process is difficult for you, you can stop and you can just add the mountain and leave it at Dad. I think I will stop right here. I also think I got the misty effect that I was hoping for. So this is our first layer. You can call it as background. So keep this drying before you move on to the next step. 10. Class project - 1 Foreground: Now that the mountains in the background is stride, we're gonna get started with the foreground. So I'm going to use the same shade of indigo that I've used for the previous mountain. So like we have discussed in one of our previous video about blending, we're going to use the same technique to paint dismount Danes. There'll be a few more dense here in the foreground. With this share. In this light shade of indigo. Please practice blending techniques before you get started with this landscape. I think now you guys know the importance of people in blending techniques. You can use a clot instead. So keep tissue paper or a cloud Tandy in the shade of indigo. So this is the second one. I am following the same blending technique. Well, out of three, I have been to small mountains. The last one, I'm gonna paint it later. So now take the darker shade of indigo and start bending the main mundane from where the waterfalls will be there. So we talked about how to include the waterfalls in between the mountains using blending and dry brush techniques. I hope you guys practiced enough. If not, please do before you start with your main landscape. I've kept the water. So please also keep an eye on how many times I am keeping my brush into the water. Carefully. Blend the Mountain area and do not touch the white gap that we have kept it. Make sure it still stays wet. Using these blending them dry brush techniques, but on my techniques forever. So please make sure you're walking faster. Like I said before, please remember these kind of effects. One is very good, very good practice. There'll be three small mountains. So I'm going to paint the last third mountain. So this one will be in lighter shade of indigo again. So more water and less pigment, you will get the lighter shared. And the reason why I didn't paint the third montane before is because I needed the previous two mountains to be dried. Before I start with this one. Take the smallest of brush you have. Using darker shade of indigo over the mountains. I'm going to keep this drying. So see you in the next video. 11. Class project - 1 Details: So make sure the foreground bitwise completely dry. Now we're gonna start with the details part. And I'm using my number for brush and I'm taking the darkest shade of indigo possible. And I'm gonna paint the darkest Mountain, which is clearly near the view. Look darker. And let's paint a few trees over this, you know, darkest Mondale. So this class project one is particularly for the beginners or anyone who is trying waterfalls for the first time. So this process is very simple and there'll be, you know, simple steps to achieve this as well. Please watch the techniques video before you start with this one. So it will be very easy for you. It's just that became a habit. But it's completely your choice. If you're not comfortable with it, you don't have to do it. Let's end this class project by painting a few, but I hope you liked this landscape and its very simple, designed especially for bigness. So see you in the next one. And thank you for watching. 12. Class project - 2 Background: Well, this landscape, we're gonna mix a few colors. First is green, Amber. If you don't have green and boy, you can mix forest green with pions gray, it'll walk as well. And indigo, this is White Nights. Indigo. Have another band of that Indigo, so I'm going to use that one. It's opened already. So Green, amber and indigo, cleaner, ready, have some on my palette. So I'm going to use that. I just want to see what kind of colors by mixing green and indigo. So here we go. It's more towards India, golden green because I have taken more indigo combined to the Green. I have taken the previous landscapes indigo. This is looking more greenish. So yeah, this is a change from the integral that we have used already in the previous landscapes. So with this, I'm going to start my landscape. So the waterfalls from project two is a step up compared to the project one landscape. And this is a rough sketch of high weights going to be. So there'll be a background and there will be foreground. Just like we have been dead before in previous landscape. But the details and everything would be a little bit complicated. So let's give it a try. By reading the paper. We have a simple light sky. Our previous project, one landscape. We have in this project as well. The mix of gangrene. I hope we add now both with the blending techniques using the tissue. So let's blend this guy into the background. Before we proceed any further. Let the sky by dry first. So I'm gonna keep this for drying. Now. There is a waterfall in the background here as well. It's light, but it's there. So make sure you have your tissues ready and a very good pressure of yours. I'm gonna give that reference painting away now. And my paper is dr. Let's start with the background. Waterfalls fast. Make sure it's quite light in color than the foreground that we're gonna paint. Whenever you need a light shade of a color, make sure you mix more water than the pigment. So I have mixed enough water. Now, let's paint the background waterfall files. We have discussed in Techniques video. Bending a waterfall in between the mountain is a mix of all the techniques together. Blending dry brush, read or unread. Now so the Swift use of your brush, you hand movements, everything counts here. I'm just going to drag the pain down first. So since I am not reading the paper beforehand, and of course the paper will dry. And then I will again. And I will blend colors of the mountain. Yes. I think it's more confusing than anything else we have discussed in our classes. But once you get the hang of it, once you understand the process until practiced enough. This is the easiest process. And waterfalls is one of my favorite subject to paint. If it's needed, please write down the technique first and then practice according to yet. And I'm sure you'll get it. That's coming there. So I'm gonna see you in the next video. Keep this for drying. 13. Class project - 2 Foreground: So let's start painting the foreground. So here I have planned a mountain from which the water is flowing, and then it'll become a waterfall. So first we're gonna paint the rocks that are at the dot. And then we're going to paint the rocks and the bottom. Like we have discussed in Techniques video. Painter ox, in the same way. I'm using the darker shade of indigo. And then I'm just going to drag the pain down. And I will blended and the bottom of these rocks. When it dries, it's going to look like what you will see. Your brush is gonna have the lightest shade of indigo. And with the same brush, just drag the pain down. Creating a basic idea of waterfall. It's not just a basic sketch, just like we did before. Same process. Now we know how to paint the white space in between the mountain. We have discussed that in the techniques video. Combining both dry brush and we can write technique pain, the waterfall here and the mountains. White space in between these two rocks is looking. So I'm going to add the light shade of indigo. So it's gonna look like water. Light indigo to make it look like waterfall here in between the mountains. Now, these kinds of landscapes do not come with a manual. So you have to always go with your gut. Comes My favorite that is painting that I'm using darker shade of indigo. If you guys haven't watched one of the techniques video in this class, please go back and watch it. We are discussed everything from how to paint those waterfalls in between the mountains to boards, as well as trees, rocks as well. So don't miss it. At least watch techniques part. So you'll get an idea on how to paint the waterfalls. Specific subject in a landscape. I think I'm gonna stop. Now. We're not left with a big process or anything. We're just going to brush up a few things on the waterfall spiral. Just take indigo, darker shade of indigo and just drag the pain down. So it's gonna look like and the water is falling. I think that's it for the foreground. Details in the next video. And I'm gonna keep this drying and see you guys in the next video. 14. Class project - 2 Details: The second step would be, you know, splattering of whitewash. So it gives an illusion of the water that is falling off the rocks. So yeah, we're going to do that. I'm going to use the smallest toothbrush that I have. That is number one brush. Okay. I'm going to splatter some indigo as well with the same brush. You guys know what comes up. So I'm going to paint a few, but we are done with this project. I consider this as a Level two. In waterfalls. Level one was the class project one. So I hope you guys like this class project and I'm going to see you in the next one. Thank you for watching. 15. Class project - 3 Background: Let us now start with the third class project. I think this is more difficult than the previous two projects. By God you. Now we're gonna take the colors. I'm dragging Daniel Smith indigo, and I'm going to mix it with Pines gray. So if you don't want to, you don't have to. I just want something different. You know, some dark and deep Gallo of indigo. And also I want this to be slightly different than the previous ones and they are quite, you know, light in color. Now let us see what kind of color we get when we mix indigo. And as you know, both are dark colors. And this color is looking great. And I love it when I make changes to my favorite color, indigo. Because as much as I love it, I don't want to use it all the time. So I make these kind of little changes to that. So it's not completely indigo and it's not completely by onscreen. It's somewhere in between. And I just love it. But if you don't want to mix these two colors, you can go for either one of them. So the first step never changes. I'm going to let the paper with clean water and I'm using my number 40, brush Hill. Now, I'm going to paint the sky part. Since we have been dead this guy, similar sky in all of our class projects, I think it's easier now. Apply the indigo at the top of the paper and just blend the colors through the bottom. You just need to paint the Ino. The indigo only at the top of the paper. Yes, it's that simple. Now, I'm gonna keep this for drying. Now, I'm going to paint a mountain in a light color at the top of the paper, just below the sky. It may not look like it, but I'm trying to lighten the paint, lighten the shade of the pained by adding more water. Just how we painted the sky will paint the mundane in a similar way. That is, take the pane at the top of the paper, just blended the paper. I'm just trying to make the mountain look more realistic. But if you're not comfortable with so many brushstrokes, you can just simply paint a mountane and blended with the paper and leave it at that. So I think I'm done with the mountain drying and I'd come back. 16. Class project - 3 Foreground: And now that the paper is dry, the hardest part of this landscape stats right here, we're gonna paint the mountains colored with mist as well as waterfall. This is easy. If you have seen the techniques will DO. And if not, please go back and check out. How did they write spaces in between the mountains, as well as dry brush and read and read techniques. And if you have practiced that, and this should be easy. Like I have mentioned many times before, bending waterfalls is intuitive and spontaneous. You have to keep making changes and it feels right to you. So let's start. I'm gonna just Spain the outline of the mountains. And I'm gonna leave the white space in between where the waterfall should be. Now, quickly before the pain and paperboard tries grant the brain down using your brush using driver's technique. Now, remember we have discussed this in Techniques video. Using Dr. restrict 10K, drag the pain down. All the foundations that we have been dead, leaving the whitespace between these mountains as it is, because that's where the waterfalls will be. Now comes the radon where I have a dip my brush in water. You can see the jar on my right side. I'm just gonna blend edges of the mountain so it gives the soft effect. Like I said, don't leave it until it feels right to you. Repeat the same method to all the mountains where we have used the dry brush technique make itself but using water. This process takes long time. But your paper will not be staying with this long even if it is a cotton paper. So you have to walk faster. That's the only way. Now also, I can understand this last class project because it's too complicated and it's not even big, no friendly or intermediate trend. It almost at advanced level. So please stop at the class project. If you're not comfortable with class projects. But if you want to learn, I can never stop you. And I would suggest you guys to give it a try as well, even if it feels difficult, are intimidated. Because how else you will learn? That's all I have learned to. I was so scared whenever I have to go for an advanced level landscapes, but here I am. And so that's one of the bittersweet advices I can give you because you will fail at the first time, second time. But you're going to learn something at the end of each painting. Here. While the paper is still wet, I am adjusting the softness of the mountains by slowly adding the paint. Whenever you learned something from someone, please observe their brush movements there, hand moments as well. Because not everything can be said with what. So yeah, that's one of the things that has helped me whenever I use to learn something new from mighty chose. If you think you get that soft effect of the mountains at the fast try itself, you can stop. But here I'm just going to, you know, painting and repainting because that's how I paint here. I am not easily satisfied with any of my works. I have to keep go back and change everything. But you don't have to. I think this is enough. I am almost satisfied with this, uh, like 75%. And I'm going to stop this right here. And I'm gonna keep this for drying before we jump into the details. So see you guys in the next video. 17. Class project - 3 Details: Now, we have discussed about the use of light gosh, using dry brush. So we're going to have to use the, use that technique here in this landscape. So get your driver's ready. Is nothing. Just squeeze out the water from your regular brush and it will be a dry brush. Now, I'm gonna take white guys in a fresh pallet, add some water to it, and keep the pain trade. Like we had discussed in using wide brush technique medial. Now, take your dry brush. Just lightly. Touch the pain to your brush, to the braces? Exactly. And also lightly drag the pain down. Wherever there is a white space between the two mountains. It's the same. To the next amount bends as we divide space. Good luck. I think it's almost looking like now on the top of the mountain using indigo, small brush. Okay, using the same brush, using the waterfalls, jason branches we have discussed in techniques we deal. Mm-hm. Last but I think the words adding bird is also we have discussed in Techniques, video elements, video, I believe. So. Yeah, it's easy. Just take a small brush and then, you know, paint two lines, opposite lines. And then they go, you have your board. And we are then, I hope you like this landscape and see you in the next video.
