Today we continue to learn from the masters and see what painting skills Billy has ~~
In this chapter, I will show you some basic techniques. Practicing and mastering these techniques before officially drawing flowers will help improve the success rate.
There are two golden rules: don't worry, and let the colors spread naturally. Frequent intervention during color diffusion, stabilization, and drying can lead to cluttered pictures. Practice using only two or three strokes to guide the paint, and then wait for the paint to dry.
This is my first procedure for starting each painting. First wet the paper with water, and apply the pigment to the water while wet. This allows the pigment to spread freely on the paper, rather than being immediately absorbed by the paper surface; and the edges of the pigment will be soft rather than stiff. Another advantage is that two colors can be applied at the same time, and the two can be mixed on paper before drying out.
Because there is a layer of water between the paint and the paper surface, the paint can be easily extracted or wiped off with a clean and wet brush, so this technique is also often used to create highlight areas.
Dripping pigment
Dip the brush into the paint so that it goes smoothly from the brush into the wet paper. This technique is used to create soft and natural colors.
Carefully brush the water on the paper surface, and carefully confine the water coating to the area to be painted-because the pigment spreads along the path of water, if the coating is messed up, the painting will be messy. In addition, if a pencil mark is drawn, it will be difficult to erase the mark. Draw only one petal or one shape at a time because the coating dries quickly.
Add pigment while wet. Because paint easily passes from the brush into the paper, avoid applying too much color at this stage. Because the petals of this hemerocallis lighten from the edge to the center, the pigment is added to the tip of the petals.
Guide the pigment to the base of the petals. To do this, use a clean, damp brush and sweep from the edge of the wet paint to the center of the flower.
2. Fusion of colors
While the second pigment is dripping while wet, use only the tip of the pen to carefully guide the pigment.
Use a clean, almost dry brush to paint the pigments into the dark part of the petals and fuse the two pigments.
3. Color extraction
After a color is finished, use a clean, wet brush to carefully sweep unwanted paint to show highlight areas.
If there is more than one highlight area, proceed quickly because it is almost impossible to absorb the pigment after it has dried. The brush should be cleaned between each suction, otherwise the paint that was sucked last time will be applied elsewhere.
When drawing pigment from the paper, the brush is drier than the drawing paper, so that the brush will absorb the pigment.
4. New coating
Multi-coat painting is applied to one color over the other. The first color must be completely dry, or the second color will mess up or suck it out. Details such as veins can be drawn between the two coatings, which softens the details and makes them more natural. I try not to paint more than three coatings, because the more coatings the more unstable the pigment, and the danger of "painted".
After the first pigment is completely dry, carefully wet the paper surface with water.
Apply a second color and carefully brush where you need it. This pigment can be sucked in order to show the underlying color.
This layer of pigment is sucked from the base to the tip in the same direction. This action can reveal the radian and color of the petals. Wait for the coating to dry.
Use a dry brush and a darker red to paint the details.
Add a layer of bright color to the completely dried screen. The goal is to unify the tone of the picture and fuse the details between the layers.
Dry Brushing
This technique is used to draw patterns and structures. When the background color is painted and completely dry, you can paint. This technique requires stable hands and requires some practice to achieve convincing results. This technique works better on cold-pressed or rough paper, so you can practice on the heavier paper before you can paint on the finished hot-pressed paper.
Darken pigments with just a little water. Suck with a brush and remove excess pigment on absorbent paper. Keep the pen flat so that the pen hair is slightly branched.
For a detailed picture, look at how the brush is bifurcated, so as to use a dry crimson to drag across the picture to draw a natural hemerocallis vein.
Flatten the nib while drawing so that only part of the paint is painted on paper to create the petal structure.
Contrast between real objects and paintings.
Drawing details
The picture above uses dark red dots to draw pollen. This step must be performed after the stamens are completely dry, or the red will fuse. Don't worry when doing this step, use a magnifying glass if necessary. After the red has dried, use yellow ideas to highlight the pollen.
Use the pen tip to paint the details of the small protrusions on the petals. Make sure that the background of the petals is completely dry, and shadow each small protrusion. If no shadow is drawn, the protruding triangular structure will not be reflected.
--Well, that's it for today's class. Today we shared the wet painting method, which is used to draw large color blocks and backgrounds, and can be used for color fusion and extraction. You also learned how to paint different coatings, and use dry brushes to paint structures and details. --I hope you practice more ~~
Next time we will share more tips, bye ~~
