Dec 24, 2021
Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm back. This is the video I just made and I will post it. I just made this little box. atc's and i decided to put this little

hummingbird

in um i guess these are trumpet flowers i've been googling and i'm really tempted to add color to this guys but i'm going to start with brown i'm just going to use some burnt amber and not i got my paintbrushes i'll be back right back um my angle my trusty angle brush my bucket of water my palette paper and a paper towel i'm going to carry my paintbrush this is how i'm going to do all my not sure if this

wood

burning thing Is it getting to my throat or what, but I've been getting a bit of a stuffy throat, but anyway, that's how I charge.

The brush I load it in the corner, I get the paint at the tip and then I mix it with my palette paper here and what happens is now I've taken paint and water and combined put them on the palette paper and now I can make the float in between where the paint is going to float through the bristles in the water and gives it a color gradation starting from darkest to lightest to just water down i never want the paint to get to this side sometimes it does and then you can always use your mop brush.

I tend to keep a mop handy as well. I'm going to go in here and start to put brown in the darker areas and then hit it because there's water on the surface now because I'm putting paint and water on the surface so because that's the case I can soften the color if I need to if I I leave it there it's fine but how to see well like this it already seems as if it were floating, but if I pull from the edge of the water I can pull the color a little more, that's the idea and I've been doing this for a long time and what I do is continue doing it i'm still going to color water or water stain color and then i go to this palette and when i reload my brush so ok let's add a little bit of color in these nooks and crannies that's where i want to focus right now, so I'm going to put a little against this vine and just stick it in there and I'm just going to touch it, I want to do it. try to keep this but see i can go right back to where the water and paint is and pick up some more and keep it moving. um, I want to keep it soft. every video i have a q-tip ready usually too and i can only remove the color if oh before i paint i always seal the piece because

wood

is a porous surface and all this paint would just soak into the wood if i didn't seal it with an acrylic based sealer or I varnish either and it creates a barrier so my paint sits on the piece instead of soaking it up so I'm putting this brown deep down in the nooks and crannies against the flowers because I think and maddie upvoted for the color i've actually been doing her technique now for a while adding color to my wood burns adding paint to my wood burns to make them look burnt in other words i'm using this brown paint to mimic the how a piece of burnt wood would look like if i just used my wood burn tool to shade but i don't know how to do it yet because i haven't given it a real chance i got lazy and like it n the dark outlines and then I decided to do this because I love to float and I like the result I get rather than it being a half decent looking wood burn.

I get a really good one. I like it anyway because I have done this floating technique for so many years. I feel like I really have a lot of control and I don't want to do all the wood burning work and then I don't like the piece because I'm just not competent you know so I've enjoyed it so far so who knows maybe I'll decide to really do the work to learn how to make this look shaded with a wood burning tool but for now this technique is that it makes me happy so you know it's hard to stop doing it and struggle with something I'm not very good at well you know so it's just not happening right now but that doesn't mean it will never happen but just for today I'm going to use this technique and then I think this piece really calls for color it's just flowers and the

hummingbird

and you know , so I think it will end up getting color um I'll pause in a minute and show you when I've added color to pieces before those of you who watch my channel have seen them but some of you may not and it's something that the people add color to pieces of firewood its not new or you know something unheard of but im a person of color anyway i love color to begin with so doing something monotonous isnt something i turn to.

I tend to want to add color, um, I should probably put a bit of a shadow around that. too, but right now I'm just getting it into the real nooks and crannies of the background. ush to keep the water on the outer edge and keep the color against that's the idea and i lost i didn't have as much water on my brush so no but i think it looks good i'm going to go that other way the other Thing is, if I go too crazy, I lose all the color of the raw wood, so I don't like that either, um, in other words, I like that the color of the raw wood peeks through, but it should be up to par. shade because this little curl that's all i just have to be nice and no um i see this would be shaded i loved it so this piece is styled by its name is block i just got your wood burning book , creative wood burning and um, she had some patterns on there and I realized this would fit in this box too, that was part of it, um, the reason I picked it because it fits perfectly in this box and I still struggle with the

design

.
I have been a decorative painter. for so long and I'm so used to using other people's

design

s that it doesn't come naturally to me to know what to put on when I have a blank canvas in front of me it's not easy I like having a pattern I like you know it's much more serenity for me going in here and saying oh i know exactly what goes here and where and why and what colors and all so this is a sheet i'm tempted to put a little here but i don't think i will but i think i should i have two more places what i want to do and then i'm going to flip the hummingbird so i want to take it easy ok i'm going to go to this side of the swirl and then i'm going to pull it this is the trumpet flower here this is a big petal then and then it bumps into the leaf so I think I just want to put a little bit on the outside of this trumpet flower and then I'm going to circle the hummingbird so just let me against it gently and just let it, let it go off , I don't want to bring that color up too much, it's ok , I think that's good, so now if I'm adding color, I'm not coloring the whole flow. er not at all I'm just going to put in hints of green let me flip the good and then on these little things I could or there are two things I could just go against the box with the brown and leave the vine a bit raw but I tend to think I want to do it I think this is what I want to do I'm going to show you I want to go I'm going to go under the vine I'm not going to go over the leaves that I might have I did this with the tome that has screws I removed it when I

burned

it but for some reason I tend not to care when I'm

painting

I just go around it like this because now what do I do with the stuff above I think I'm just going to go to the right um hmm really I just think this is aesthetic or else I don't know if that it's the right word but i don't think it has to be anything specific i can do what i want you know i think it needs to have color here so i'm just hitting miss hitting and missing and you know what it is i think that looks good, i just don't do my inte Total nion and it's my intention it doesn't mean it's going to be the way it is at all is not to lose all the color of the raw wood, you know, but one you know, I think it's going to be good right now. i'm going to flip the hummingbird the same i just want to keep it darker against the hummingbird and let it bleed out so i'm going to go here and here and here and i might go all the way along the wing and all the way, oh my gosh I will I just don't want to lose like I keep saying I'm like a broken record right now repeating it I think if the more I say it chances are I will cause it's in my head um I don't i want to lose all the color of the raw wood it should be inside this swirl and inside the swirl oh boy um i just have to go around once i do it i won't be able to get it out so that's why i'm being very cautious and careful and I'm going to start by putting my brush against and then I'll spin it out.
Look how I'm spinning. I don't want it to fall on the bird. I need a little more water. I can feel when my brush is starting to dry out. You really need to have water on the brush for the paint to move. it could go under the wing and I think it probably should I'll just keep it very light but what it does is it just sits the bird on the piece so it's not just okay it's floating in the middle in the middle of the air I think I like that I don't want now I could do corners so here I'm going to grab this other piece that I added color to here versus this piece that I didn't do except for the dragonfly and by color I mean red orange yellow green blue those colors because I add white and gold and then for the dragonfly I just put an iridescent or a um or a pearl on the wings for shine but for the most part I really just stick with the browns and add soft black on this one like so that I added the soft black along the edges that's what I'm going to do I'll do I'll do I'll do a couple of colors but look I didn't do any green on the leaves or anything I just highlighted the petals with white and then I put gold here and there like highlights like on her little body now on this one i did pretty much what i'm doing here i shaded all the parts i wanted to shade nicely i shaded the little tree branches and then i started adding color so i shaded right i don't know i think i did the color first to be honest with you so it's a bit of color but I'm trying to stick with browns and golds and whites it's hard so for this one I'll keep there are so many different colors of trumpet flowers as well as this is my own whimsical design so i could do what i wanted this one is more realistic so i have a little more pressure to keep it realistic not that.
That said, I don't have to like it, it's my piece, I can do whatever I want, so obviously the leaves are green, but so is the hummingbird. Now should I use the same green color for both? Right now I have this light avocado, also sometimes hummingbirds look iridescent to me and I have iridescent greens so I was thinking of giving them a little bit of red like this is what I looked at beforehand again. the design is not my thing but since these are all trumpet flowers i googled these these are actually the poisonous variety but i could do a splash of color around the top of the trumpet then keep the base really basic um like here is more than one drawn and it has the dark green inside and the white I like to keep them white I think I'll just keep me from adding another color to the piece so this piece will tend to be just green white green white and brown so I like that now this is a picture that oops I took a screenshot of a hummingbird I liked and the way he drew it I was considering this part here. the red part but it seems l Since the red reaches his eye, then this would be the red, so it's not a truly realistic drawing, it's just his drawing. this light avocado I think it's a pretty color so let me go back to where I was with the trumpet flower if I use this kind of rendering of an angel trumpet which I like makes me happy white and then I'll go green maybe I'll use two different colored greens, I think that makes sense because if I'm shading with green, I'm going to need it to be like this, so I have a light avocado, maybe I'll use dark avocado, you know, let's see. because they are in the same family i have dark green hauser and medium green hauser and hauser is this light hauser as they are dark and houser i think i am going to use these as well and then the trumpet flowers will be white but i am just going to lightly shade in areas and then i'm going to do all the leaves this dark green i'll do this this is my choice i'm choosing to do this this is what i'm doing ok i'm pulling out some dark green this is hauser dark green now i think i won't lose all the wood tone wood grain or the color green i'll make my leaves first and just make them.
I think I'll stick with the lines of the veins. I'm going to move to a slightly smaller brush so I don't have any paint. everywhere because i want to like it i said i keep repeating but i want to keep it more controlled i hope i like this color lets see how it looks i like there are so many colors i could use y'all i'll be right back yeah i like it ok i'm taking it down and this will be now without repeating myself too much, i don't want to lose all the color of the wood tone, so i will keep it only in certain places. so against the veinline i'm going to do both sides of each sheet so i leave the outer edge of the sheet um the color of the raw wood making it as a highlight that's my that's what i'm saying i'll stick to it um i'm happy, I like the shade of this green I like it and I like it because I'm not a color mixer I'm a decorative artist I've always used these craft paints and you know whatsee her and then the other one too and probably against her little body there would be white eye the inside the inside not the black part but the white of her eye has to see and she would think it was a child because I think children are the ones with that nice red um the ruby ​​throat and then the girls are a little less colorful i think that's all i need to do so i'm going to put a little bit on the eye and i'm also going to paint the eye a little bit it should be black i just

burned

it um I could put a little white dot in there too so I can take a little white dot like I want to pop them a little better I can hear the robins outside it's raining in here and I think that's when they love to look for worms I think it's beautiful oh my gosh i love it um too many brushes in there i think i'm done guys i'm going to flip the box around the bottom i think i'm fine i'm not i don't think i'm fine because it could have gone like this on the side i'm gonna do it and see what you think i really I like that look but i think it gets too dark i did it on my other little one i think i like the way i went around the vine gives it a little movement oh i can't decide i think i'm done i like it no i want to go too crazy like gold i want to add gold everywhere now oh my god its so pretty i could put little dots like gold in the middle of the flowers.
Look now I'm pushing it though I think I ended up good guys that's all thanks for watching.
