painting an OWL in WATERCOLOURS

As watercolourists we are generally working from lighter tonal values down to darker ones. Therefore learning to paint shadows is very important. This video is firstly about looking for large shadow areas. These are a great way to simplify a painting and also to help it "hold together"; and using a simple thought process of - light - medium shadow, deep shadow, can really help tackle even complex subjects. This owl for example; it would be very easy to get distracted and caught up in the markings, which are beautiful; but by focusing on painting shadows, and large shapes we can hint at the markings but not get lost! _______________________________________________ Longer Format Version: https://www.patreon.com/posts/tawny-owl-in-63877637 FREE ZOOM DEMO signup; https://www.tomshepherdart.com/watercolour-masterclass-series ________________________________________________ MATERIALS: - Baohong Watercolour Paper Half sheet - approx. 16" x 22" - Escoda Ultimo - Faux Squirrel Mop, size 18 - Winsor & Newton Medium Size Quill Brush - faux squirrel - Jackson’s Raven Mop, Size 0 - faux squirrel - Winsor & Newton Rounds, size * & 10 - faux sable COLOURS - Ultramarine Blue (Cobalt) - Prussian Blue (Pthalo, Indanthrone) - Quinacridone Red (Alizarin Crimson, Rose Madder, Carmine) - Yellow Ochre (any warm or transparent yellow) - Quinacridone Deep Gold (Burnt Sienna) - Lavender by Holbein (opaque white mixed with blue) Join me for the Watercolour MASTERCLASS series: https://www.tomshepherdart.com/watercolour-masterclass-series See what's coming with the Online Watercolour SCHOOL: https://www.tomshepherdart.com/online-watercolour-school Visit my existing Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/TomShepherdArt ____________________________ Buy paintings: https://www.tomshepherdart.com/shop ---- Links to me ---- https://www.instagram.com/tomshepherdartist https://www.patreon.com/TomShepherdArt https://www.tomshepherdart.com/ https://www.facebook.com/TomShepherdArt/ https://www.stitcher.com/show/creative-perspectives ______________________________ ---- Series Details ---- This easy to understand painting tutorial is designed for watercolorists of any ability or experience level.

Simple WATERCOLOUR tutorial for beginners

In this tutorial I explore a very simple way of approaching a colourful watercolour bird. Even with what appears to be a more complex subject like this Bee-Eater Bird, we can still use a very straightforward and simple process to easily create fun and simple little watercolours. Whilst there are plenty of slightly more advanced techniques and approaches here, I do feel like that this tutorial does show a nice simple watercolour process that would suit beginners. I hope you enjoy this one and have fun with it if you give it a go.

LOOSE watercolour painting tutorial beginner

How can we loosen up our watercolour painting? So many people are chasing this, and understandably so, but first we need to pin down what it means. For me it is a watercolour with that more painterly feeling born out of brush marks and patches of paint which unite to give the impression of our subject. Whilst painting more freely and loosely seems to come with time, practice and confidence, it is also largely born out of how we look at and analyse our subject, and in turn how we interpret that into our painting. It is this which I talk about in this video; and for me it is about learning to see our subject has having one large shape which anchors the painting and brings it together, maybe a few medium size shapes too. These simple larger shapes hold the piece together and give us the freedom to loosen up elsewhere and really throw the paint around.

How to paint LIGHT & SHADOW in watercolours

How to paint LIGHT & SHADOW in watercolours

A sneak peek into some of the concepts we will be covering in far more detail in the upcoming Watercolour MASTERCLASS series: https://www.tomshepherdart.com/watercolour-masterclass-series Learning to look for simple shapes within our subjects is a great start. Equally straightforward is learning to split them into a simple light & shadow side. The next stage is to keep this light side, or light family of tonal values, notable separate from our shadow family of tonal values. Watercolour tends to lend itself well this way of looking at things as we can use an initial light, watery wash to create lots of lovely lights and halftones, them come in and look for simple shadows which we keep closer together in tone. Of course this is easy with a high contrast subject but is equally useable in more subtle lighting settings and can be used to easily look at, analyse, interpret and paint literally any subject! ___________________________ Join me for the Watercolour MASTERCLASS series: https://www.tomshepherdart.com/watercolour-masterclass-series See what's coming with the Online Watercolour SCHOOL: https://www.tomshepherdart.com/online-watercolour-school Visit my existing Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/TomShepherdArt ____________________________ Materials 9" x 12" Canson, Moulin Du Roy, Cotton Watercolour Paper Size 0 Mop - Jackson's Raven Size 10 Round - ProArte Prolene Colours: - Cobalt Blue - Pthalo Blue - Quinacridone Red - Permanent Red - New Gamboge Yellow - Permanent Yellow Orange - Verditer Blue ______________________________ Buy paintings: https://www.tomshepherdart.com/shop ---- Links to me ---- https://www.instagram.com/tomshepherdartist https://www.patreon.com/TomShepherdArt https://www.tomshepherdart.com/ https://www.facebook.com/TomShepherdArt/ https://www.stitcher.com/show/creative-perspectives ____________________________ Timestamps 0:00 Intro 1:27 Theory 5:44 Painting 15:10 Conclusion & Outro _______________________________ ---- Series Details ---- This easy to understand painting tutorial is designed for watercolorists of any ability or experience level.

Wet in Wet Painting for Watercolour

Wet in Wet Painting for Watercolour

Wet in wet painting with watercolour is is possibly the technique which the medium is best known for! It is easy to understand why as the effects, colours and look of the paint it produce are just wonderful, and you really can let the watercolour juts do its thing! As with all watercolour painting, a little knowledge and a few tricks and tips go along way. In this quick watercolour bird episode I paint a Bateleur Eagle. It is a great opportunity to look at creating contrast of softer and more flowing wet into wet areas with more refined and sharper detailed areas. The body and the feathers of the eagle are the perfect place to explore the wet into wet watercolour technique. Understanding the role of paint consistency os the absolute key to getting to grips with wet into wet painting. We need to first be aware of what level of wetness or dryness the wash on the page is at. Secondly we need to get a feel for the consistency of paint in the brush - how much pigment and how much water. Understanding the watercolour is so helpful for this. I go deeper into this idea in the video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1spfpfhqCuY I hope you enjoy watching this watercolour painting as much as enjoyed painting.

EASY technique for watercolour

EASY technique for watercolour

In this Quick Watercolour Bird Tutorial I will show you an easy technique for watercolour painting. We will cover a wider range of principles in this tutorial but I think the two main takeaways are: NUMBER 1 Using a simple watercolour process split into 3 stages. This can be applied to the painting as a whole, as well as individual parts. This process involves thinking in 3 stages of tonal values, and tied in with that the different paint consistencies. Firstly the light family; to include whites of the page, highlights, and lots of lovely flowing halftones (nothing too dark). In this case we let lights dry before coming back in with the slightly creamier consistency of paint for the medium or gentle shadows. As these dry we get progressively darker (more pigment and less water) towards the deep shadows and dark accents (double cream paint consistency and thicker) This isn't really a formula but rather a simple process that can be tweaked, tailored and then applied to different areas. NUMBER 2 This is the use of a simple 3 primaries palette to mix subdued colours, or as I like to call them "coloured greys" When we have a colour and then mix the opposing or complimentary colour into it. We pull that colour closer to the centre of the colour wheel and it gets more subdued, or greyed down, as we go. If we want to create a subdued steely blue as in the case of this Peregrine Flacon, then we take the blue and want to add its complimentary, orange. We don't have orange, but we do have red and yellow which make orange. So we can simply add red and yellow in small amounts to the blue to subdue (by bringing closer into the centre of the colour wheel) When we understand this we realise we can create a huge myriad of wonderful subdued and coloured greys simply by learning to balance all the primaries.
