today and there are a lot of

beginner

s it all started as a beginner when we painted when we started our

painting

journey so i'm going to paint a painting just a basic beach or an ocean scene with the sky in the foreground but now i'm just going to use the basics right now. m I'm not a beginner anymore so all the hardware I have here I have paint everywhere you know not every beginner has all this right so let's go back to my palette Ian and I'm going to take the basic paints. a beginner with me to start ok what is your blue yellow and red your primary colors ok so the canvas i am using there is 30 centimeters by 42 centimeters in australia we use centimeters and millimeters and we will bring the colors up next screen there now for those who want to know what colors i'm using in this ok oh and obviously you saw the finished process of this painting in the opening credits ok so like i said we're beginners so i'm going to use the colors basics main colors black and white just to show a beginner what you can do with the basics without all the retarders and glazes and glitters and all that kind of stuff okay okay let's get into this on my palette here I have one flowing white paint all this is

acrylic

skull red proper magenta which is red cadmium yellow medium and i have a blue you can have a blue phthalo primary blue a blue so we have our primary colors and we got some white in there if we want to lighten it up good these are the basic colors a beginner needs to start right when i started i go to the art store and buy half a million tubes of paint what i need i need this and i need that and i need this right when you start there the main colors you need and it will help you make all the colors of the rainbow nice n oh what i said we are going to do a basic beach and ocean scene here ok using these colors in the palette , ok, and we'll just use some simple brushes, now brushes don't have to be big, expensive and scientific too.

I got this at a local hardware store it's just a two inch brush that's flat and that's good for applying most of the paint at the start of painting and you can get a pack of these flat brushes but I'm not going to go for use this one because i'll be there all day trying to color the sky with it sometimes you want to get in the business so like i said i'm not using retarders or anything so ok what can i do as a beginner to get a a reasonable good sky too not only a good sky but i would paint a miss bottle a squirt bottle so you can get water and this will also help you get the paints off the brush so i'm going to start with some whites my habits and my habits but i'm going to start with some whites and i'll start let's say at the top of the paint first now i'm going to paint like a beginner so a beginner has a fluid white paint surely hasn't and retarder in this I only put a little water, it depends on you how intelligent you want to be with your frame and think that water will flow with it and if you do not think to put water that does not fly well it is because you did not put water but in end come on just got our flowing white paint in there ok now obviously clean up your brush.

More Interesting Facts About,

I already cleaned my brush. You will find your favorite brushes that you use for many things. This seems to me my favorite to apply my paints to the canvas. I have sprayed water here because I think it will help it flow out of the brush ok now I am using phthalo blue now I have sky so normally we have sky color and pale to analyze and outline so let me show you as a beginner how can you get there to be no white on the canvas down here ok so look at that look at that pa I get what you're doing it's very blue and brushstroke II but at the top we'll start at the top.

We'll see this white blend into the blue start on top and then I'll bring it down, okay and slowly. get lighter on the horizon line because like I said this is going to be an ocean beach scene. i want to brush it on because it's

acrylic

now i'm going to give it a spray of water look what this does ok i just missed it with water and now i can feel and i hope you can see the difference what's happening on the canvas here this is just a cheap canvas. I'm not cheap, but it's just a canvas panel.

Not too expensive stretch canvas. on that there's just a decent quality paint and the white flow underneath now i'm just going to go get a rag and clean that brush ok i don't have to go wash it now i'm going to pick up some of this white flowing on both sides of the brush I'm going to leave it here because I don't want to contaminate everything with the blue and from the horizon line I'm going to get that white with no retarder on this there's no easy blending or whatever now I'm going to put a little more in there because with a sky it really I want pale at the bottom and a little darker at the top, but not dark blue.
I've done some of my first stuff in dark blue. It really changes the look of the paint it's ok and you can just stroke that and stroke it to the come on cows that's heaven do yourself a favor beginners have two whites you want the white to flow and you want your white stuff to pop The tube, which is of good quality, has some body and structure, and is not too heavy. but it's also not a flow because this works differently on a canvas than this or this is a canvas paper. it sings actually that's why i didn't spray the canvas paper first because it will be like trying to paint on wet plastic so you can tell the difference between this blue and that blue which is just raw paint under the canvas i don't want sky that color the sky is not that color you learned that as you paint well now we have our simple sky there and the horizon line with your horizon line the higher or lower you make it depends on the size of the sky you want or the water so For example, in a beach scene, the water and the beach is fine, so the higher the horizon line, the smaller the sky will be, and the larger your foreground will be, so that's roughly my horizon line, It's probably a little bit more than half now I want to mix it up not just let's have a blue sky and white clouds you've seen that polluted purple in the sky let's just put that in there okay but I'll show you the basics down here I'll take a cep flat head illo and we'll use it to make You're mixing so I'll take some blue meat ok where are we here? and a little bit of magenta and we're going to get a purple girl a little bit more magenta now can't you see it looks very dark so we have this white flow. that's going to enhance it now if that's too strong just here we go that's what i'm looking for right there look at that color there it might be a little strong so i'll put a little more white with it lighter is better with acrylics because they dried darker that's our color contaminated on the horizon line, so i just have basic paints here, just a flat head brush. that's why I want to show you guys in this video so I'm just going to pick up, say, a smaller fan brush here and lo and behold, this is where I can tell you that you're also going to need a blend brush ready as you go , so I have horizon lines here so there is my horizon line there I want to put this on each side or well we're going to put this there you can move it so the paints are probably still a little wet ok do a little bit at a time and take a smudge brush and in the corner of your smudge brush seal that in and try and try and blend it into that blue why I say do a little bit at a time because if you go too far you'll have a hard line in there and it won't blend so now this is a no retarder mix no other medium just the paints themselves now the brush is not as contaminated so i just dipped it again i have horizon oil in there and I want to meet a game so far.
I'm grabbing the corner of this brush, nailing it down. to hell and we're getting this tainted color in that sky there now this worked because I didn't have it like that and then try and mix that into that it's just not going to work see what's going on there it just looks like mud so we'll pass it all the way lending brushes like come on there is or your tainted horizon line look when i was a beginner i didn't even think to put that in there so now i'm painting as a beginner but since i want to be able to show you well that's something you can put there it's very easy Look how I did it, I didn't use anything else slow drying or Nothing, putting white first under that blue sky helped here, if I just went blue that would have been silly.
Next I want to put some simple clouds. on me now the clouds do them a little bit at a time this is not going to blend the way my normal tutorials go because i'm not using ratata but i have some different size blend brushes here to make the small medium or large clouds they blend well so we have our blend brush ok now we want to put a cloud in there so let's start with some simple ones the little ones are smaller in the background and get bigger as they go over your head. some there and this is where we're going to use the white titanium from the vat e structured stuff is fine so let's find any old brushes we want to put clay with.
I'm just going, yeah, I just pulled this one, this is a, this is a round, pointy one. they're called brushes but anyway i roll it in the paint just like a beginner can prop up wood ok now come here and watch me roll it on the board so let's just put this cloud on let's give it a little bit of a not too thick line and a bit of body a bit of line and some body that's all you need to do for a cloud now obviously I'm going to use my small brush to blend that in so I've done it a bit at a time and we want to just blend that out leaving the top of the cloud ok look now you have a wife as you clean up the build up that will be under your brush as you blend that down blend it down give it a little bit of a background and now there's a simple cloud, little did I know when I was starting, I didn't know you, I just assumed, painting a cloud up, Klaus, is go. t to be white, but now I'm here to teach you as a beginner to put some shadow and depth so that the color that we mix with the magenta and blue that we're going to use in our cloud doesn't just look like a flat white cloud, it's got something we're going to put a little bit more in there it's a little bit darker than that because this will form the base of that cloud so you can see what I've done there I've just danced it out and I'm going to grab that same smudger brush and the I'll quickly blend before it dries because this paint can dry out and we want to put a background on that cloud so create the dark background like this and put another one on so I'm picking up that white again and we'll probably put one here a little bit of body , give it some body ok I'm using this same brush and I want you to know but there's a lot of paint I just brushed off the canvas with the brush now I'm cleaning it up and I want to blend I don't want to blend this into the atmosphere , I want what e have a background so I'm using the good quality paint from the tube titanium white now I'm picking up that blended color again and I want to put that under for the background of these clouds so let it go up a bit using the same brush because it's a little cloud and we want to blur at the bottom.
I'm going to do a series on clouds and if you're having trouble with a cloud it's something to look at there's another distant cloud see a beginner she'll be able to pull this off now this cloud is going to be a little bigger so I'm going to put it there and do it a little bigger now that will make clouds have that shape find that shape if you want your cloud to have i'm going to use the medium blend brush now because they come a little bit bigger so i got a quick blend this give it a background just blend halfway the top part tries to tickle the top ok look how i got here kind of washed out with the blue that's what i wanted so when we put our shadow color in there we have to quickly bring it up a bit like this , now quickly stamp it on the target and give the cloud a base.
How does it look? There is another simple cloud. Now we'll put something here. so i'm putting the paint on quickly so i'm just using any brush. I have never used this type of brush to apply the cloud before. Don't go too much because it's very dry so I'm here to teach you. beginner ok i didn't know i would be happy and i had trouble making clouds so now i'm here to tell you that you can do it this way and it will work so you put that one in front of there mix the medium well you can see the difference between just a white cloud and the one with no shadow there and the ones with the shadow there I mean that's why I'm here to teach you as a beginner put your shadows there and pretty much from below they follow my series of clouds when I get into it you'll knowbrush on the sand.
Now you clean the brush as you go and wash it again. and you can probably start there you're stamping it to find out how wet your canvases are mine are wet because I'm explaining and showing you with the body of the sprayer and you rub it in the water look how easy that is it's subtle but no it has to stick out like dog ears if you want you can go back to the painting now where we're going to hollow out this brush put a little more in there there there but just make it a little thick there leave the bottom and break the top okay let the bottom and break the top back into the distance here look what he's doing better join this one it was a little thick as far as my brushes go though it's working and don't worry if you're a beginner all beginners they are learning we watch and learn from everyone alrig Let's do something with those waves I showed you anyway see that looks like water coming out onto the scene ok let's find a flat brush you can it will be worth c Buy different sets of brushes, an art store when you are. a beginner round flat head brushes and all kinds so we got it chiseled into a flat head and i just want to come over and i want to stamp on top of this wave a little bit of white look what it did but i'll tell you which one it's my board. very wet gotta stamp it see stamp it clean your brush loaded with more white paint and stamp it we're just putting a little bit of lid on there and we're going to remove it like this okay so we can put a little bit of this other wash here put that there and grab the little brush that you're using to slowly blend, blend that back into that dark there and blend the dark there as well. because that looks kinda nonsan look there so I'm just pulling back that's all I did there now the top of the wave will stay crisp and white and this is going to slowly kiss into the darker color ok , so I'm slowly kissing that into the darker color of the wave, leaving the crisp real white top there we go and that's just a simple wave in the distance.
I just want to end this water spilling onto the beach here. Keep everything in perspective. If you go up and down too much, it will start to look a little weird. blurring the top of that line i virtually just put a line there and blurring it back into the water a beginner can do this and now if you find yours is very dry and breaks it's because you didn't put water on it like me. made this surface to spread out as it blends in and we'll also finish that wave in the distance also virtually made your part dark it appears sharp on top this is just a basic shape for a basic beginner you can learn waves more detailed as you go and now the bottom of that white like I did there you're just peeling it off towards your darker color mode you mount it there that will do it and you can even blend that darker color which is just a simple wave in the distance ok let's throw our tape on the horizon line there so we can see what our paints look like and we have a decent ocean color and we have our foreground now when you're shopping for brushes buy yourself a cup of liners or a lighter dash liner is kind of thin like this and we're going to take the darkest color on our board where we mix some of the sand color with some of the black in there but with a dash liner you want it to not smear wet but you want it pretty wet and then you spread it out and take the paint off see how wet it is go up on the canvas and see what to do next just twist the thinnest line that you can do in this dance that shakes your hand like you're nervous there you go just he's just going to sit down you don't want this jet black and you just want to find the right color and then you find the right thicknesses you can do this and you'll start thinking oh my gosh I'm like and what I'm doing right. pulling it out of the brush and we're sitting all of this less is better you don't have to make a big thick line of this and play with it and play with it you just want to put it in there and not mess around that's it Done probably do a little I i lay down a bit like this just a bit not too much it's so easy to get carried away and just pick up a bit of the white with a bit of water that we have on our palette down here and if you want more detail sooner some artists are more detailed than others and if you are one of those get your dash and come back here you might want to put the finer things like leopard spots in your path these are just indicating that the foam in there ends up looking on the monitor not it's so bad let's see if t i tried to make those branches looking for foam marks in a clare honor in such a small wave it would look silly so we're getting all the foam in there that's all that foam it's a big long sought honor t ime. out there oh there's another stupid big thick one right now we've done a simple Veatch scene with just the three primary colors and black and white and a beginner doesn't know you could get all these colors they could think of right.
I have to go green I'm going to go purple I have to go brown I have to go sand this is what I want to show you that you can do everything with the primary colors and black and white and a little knowledge so I want to be here to show you that this is what you can do as a beginner with no gimmicks just a little knowledge ok so let's put a framework on that and see what a simple seascape looks like. sign it but i can do it later here we go that's not bad huh it's a simple e Exercise for beginners to learn what they can do with just the basic colors, their basic brushes and just using the paint, what they have, they don't have other additional means that they do not know, such as retarders and stay wet longer. learn that you can put shadows on the subjects and you can do different water washes on the subjects and less is better so don't be sure to subscribe all my painting tutorials are for sale message me on facebook the links in the description below to get the ball roll if you want to buy a paint or some of the blending brushes i use well and if you like rob do it and tell your friends tell your friends tilly relations but if you don't like what i'm doing tell all the world is fine all the best bye good luck and good for you
