Fashion Matching Nail Art – How to Match Your Nail Design to a Designer Dress – Nail Tutorial

hi I'm Kirsty Meakin from naio nails in this video my gorgeous model has brought in a beautiful outfit, she's going to a very special occasion and what we're going to do is we're going to much the nails to the outfit this is the outfit what do you think it's a bit gorgeous i'm going to take elements of the outfit and use that as my inspiration to create a set of nails so I'm going to start by pushing back the cuticles on these beautiful gorgeous nails they will be gorgeous by the end so we're just going to do the prep at the minute so push back the cuticles removing any nonliving tissue from that nail plate and I'm gonna take a white block and remove the surface shine and take the file I just make sure that these sides are abraised because the quiet short it's hard to get into those sides with a block you can remove the shine with a soft file dust dust dust dust dust, we're gonna sculpt these nails, just going to quickly wipe over with some acetone I'll just remove any oil from the nail plate and also get rid of any excess dust.

prime with the nail dehydrator are going to do this on all of the nails then i'm going to use the acid free primer and i will do two coats of this on all of the nails applying two coats to prevent lifting i'm going to do each nail individually so you can see how each nail is created and we're going to start with the index finger so the tab is on the back of the form i'm going to snugly fit sculpting form we're going to do a soft stiletto by that I don't mean when you touch it it's going to be really soft I mean it's not going to be quite as pointy as a stiletto but it definitely won't be an almond we're gonna go to a number two, so you can see how that's going to come straight out the sidewall here so i'm going to use the copper rose cracked ice Mylar so the reason that i'm using this color is because on the dress it's got that gorgeous deep flesh color and it's very similar to this and we will be using warm beige and we've got and we've got warm beige I've got some clear as well I've got max adhesion liquid, we've got that gorgeous cracked mylar which is beautiful or b-e-a-utiful i'm going to put a really thin layer of warm beige on so I don't want you to have a background that transparent, i was it to have a solid background, i want something natural sitting in the background rather than having a clear nail ok we got then layer that natural color that and what we're going to do now is pick up the mylar with a bead of clear just like that and we're going to spread this around now you can see why I needed just a soft natural color in the background we're going to cover the whole nail with this gorgeous product we need to add any more you can just add a little bit exactly the same as we did with the first bead just picking it off get it and move around and put it exactly where you want it once the acrylic starts to dry that you have applied with that adhere it to the nail then we're going to encapsulate this now in clear you know try to do it in one bead and then pot and press the bead down over the top of that nail you've created encasing all of the cracked Mylar, thus giving you the structure of the nail I'm gonna pinch this nail just to give it a nice curve, a nice c curve popping it on at the widest point so it can give that a little bit of pressure to gently bring that nail in, we'll take the form of now we're going to use the e-file now just to refine this then we're going smooth this back area out by the cuticle just gonna remove any bulk that we don't need gonna file this into shape same filing technique guess I always do side walls, cuticle, i'm just going to wipe over that with acetone, thats going to smooth the top surface out.

beautiful now wait til we see with mega gloss oh my days this gonna be so shiny it's gonna be so sparkly are you ready just look at that talk about into the LED lamp I'm going to finish this now we're cuticle oil they are there's a gorgeous fullnail of Mylar beautiful This will go with the outfit perfect and will add a little bit of bling, on to the next one.

Girl in a Party Dress Acrylic Painting on Canvas for Beginners

Hey everybody, I'm Cinnamon Cooney, your Art Sherpa and I believe I'm LIVE TODAY! we are happy New Year's.

I hope you guys are doing great.

I hope you guys are ready for 2017 if you're coming in you're in 2017 is going to be an awesome painting for you too for everybody on replay.

You do.

It was a little bit to catch our wave.

Catch our stream today which is why were delayed.


Sometimes the tag of all of this stuff is extraordinary.

I'm not even sure where we are where we're we're from the inner tubes were some places live.

So where we are watching us live.

Hi how are you doing.

Good to show you how to paint the party dress today and explain to everything you need to know to succeed at this painting.

This is really possible for first time painter for a real beginner painter.

These techniques are real easy to adapt and do.

Tools are easy and inexpensive I mean the whole thing is just going to be such a lot of fun if you saw us yesterday live and you've come back from that.

I thank you for coming back after seeing us paint all day.

It's my husband's birthday today.

It is.

We don't talk about that.

It's super secret super secret super secret.

Fool me get my coffee.

Dutch coffee so we're going to guide you through everything and the materials but the first thing we like to do on our live events is put wishes for our community into the canvas and we have just for sure return wish for heart for.

A little boy that we're you know hoping that his heart surgery and heart goes really well.

And there have been a lot of requests for wish to love and hope.

Do you have any would like me to add to the Canby's.


Besides Happy birthday John.

I got one Happy Birthday John and for everybody who has a birthday although in December and the beginning of January.

Yes although we celebrate with all of you and the year beginning of the year people.

Happy Birthday peeps.

I am using a kind of pastel pencil and it disappears into my paint easily does it.

So you've got to really think about what you're writing your wishes in the canvas whether they will stay through Oh say it isn't what I'm like give you three guesses of how many people in the room because right now 300 if you could it is more than that.

I have no idea how many people were 370 people.


How low we're going to give you the best years and do it in a reasonably safe thing because you're at home enjoying yourself celebrating your new year.

You started with the right party music.

It it's party time today.


Thank you guys for coming.

Well we'll get to what was going to work with bubbles and we have picture picture all sorts of stuff yeah we do to picture.

If you don't draw in the link below you see a link to the traceable trace walls kept on the dot com as well.

And what that basically is about is I don't think drawing is what is required to paint.

It's nice to be able to draw a learnable skill.

A lot of great YouTube channel is about drawing.

But if you don't try yet.

Don't let that stop you from having a good time with your friends and your family being creative.

My art stuff.

A lot of artists don't even draw.

John is running stuff today's materials for an 11 by 14 canvas board.

These kind of impacts are really economic.

They're great to paint on and also easy on storage.

I know some of you were like on painting 200 300 so storage is getting to be a thing and so we're starting to think about that in our in our practice in designing stuff because we know you guys are like their Texas snow.

I love Texas.

No it's that we don't get any actual snow here or any type of Sherpa today and it was fantastic.

You were the devil sure.

We are already doing double trip.

Then you have to come on give me a birthday gift I can give you birth.

You have to and a little birthday jingle.

We usually hit Sherpa which is 300.


Somewhere in the middle of the show you're dead.

Did you stab your daughter will divorce you.

I've been forbidden to get tortured it's cool.

So it's Joan's birthday today.

As many of you know I love all these bubbles.

Puffy loves all the bubbles too.

She's like having a whole we two things there for her.

Today's materials are real simple acrylic pick colors.

They're titanium white Mars black hole where we were like a pushbutton.

OK titanium white marsh black yellow ochre bright Sienna yellow green.

Now you'll notice here on my thing it's a blue shade.

A lot of pain.

Will tell you because it doesn't matter it's all Bush.

Cinnamon was trying to be so nice for you guys but turning those tubes upside down so that she could read them that way but she doesn't know it was I have secretly arranged the camera so quite accurate or magenta as well as they little blue.

You don't have to turn them upside down.

This here we can I see that.

I'm also using acrylic glazing liquid you can get this at Michaels and different crafts supplies and online.

I've got links to all these products down below in my descriptions so you can easily get to them but you can find them most places.

This slows down the drying time of my paint.

It doesn't draw me so fast and allows me to glaze at the same time too.

And then today I'm going to be doing my Dahlberg Stob my little pouncer.

I'm sure that's how I do my Bouck effect which is the out of focus effect that photographers have made so big.

I feel like 2016 was brought to you but look I'm going to put out a little white paint my golden white paint.

You can use different brands or materials going to say that we have we have we have over 400 for people in the room right now.

People Yeah.

I hope you are paying along because if you want to just mellow out and just chill Jackson.

Like watching other people hate for but go for your holiday.

That's a good thing too.

There's going to be very easy.

Very relaxed Oh yeah I'm doing a girl.

What's awesome is some of you guys came to our live last night and but this is going to be really easy to actually show you how you paint it.


Which to me is exciting.


All right.

So I put out these little plop she'll notice of acrylic paint.

And I have my two inch stiff white nylon brush.

These are very inexpensive and I really like them for this.

One of the things they do they don't over soak up water.

So if I dip in I just dip the brush a little bit into the water drag off the extra water.

I don't want it to be crazy wet.

If you find your breath when you touch it you're like wow that's just really wet just wipe it off on a towel and you'll be fine.

I'm going to load up and when I say that I mean like getting my brush in the paint.

I come from the outside in my paint shop here.

I'm just trying to get the tips of my Russel's let me come over and get a couple spots.

You can kind of see it there.

Oh yeah.

My Okkar.

So it's not all of it.


Just some.

And again just to be cheeky The little Bert C-A to all somebody little brushes with his tie.

So there you go.

We had a little bursts just make stir.

I'm going to take a brush stroke a nice wide brush stroke from the top down just covering the canvas.

Let's pull up our picture and picture for you as well.


You can see how this is going.

I'm just going in there and the brush really just does all of this work for me.

And another thing that you can do is you can put out your glazing with if you have it you don't have to use this.

This is me being very spoiled and really liking this stuff yeah.

It is not a mint.

Most of my years as a painter without it I just really like it.

I'm happy to say those of you that have found it have said a whole new how was totally cool.

Now sometimes you find good stuff as a painter.

I felt like I got a little too much brown there and also sort of wiped it off.

Going to come here.



That right there again.

I'm to in a little here with camera V.


P girl nonagenarian reset that and put my picture in picture input.

It's just oh ok.

And I want to kind of pick up a little more yellow ochre.

Feel like I'm not getting in a little yellow ochre some a load a little more of my brush.

Come get some white and just come back and just make sure you see that nice streaking effect then I'm getting this is what makes us feel like we've just come into a well-lit party.

Parties have very special lighting not just special emotional space but I think they have very special lighting.


I mean to get a little white in there.

Go ahead and get a little brown.

And add that.

There you go.

Just getting the streaks brushing out my words not that they're not beautiful words they're beautiful words.


Sometimes the words are beautiful and you can just see them working.

I don't really mix it on the brush.

Know more going nothing like what out some of these inexpensive canvases when you work with them when you paint with them.

You're going to notice that they are almost resistant.

A paint portrait thing to know is it's not you.

I was a little technical thing here sorry.

What was the technical.

No I was just sorry I was slow on some my switching there.

So now it's your birthday.

So everybody give John a break it's his birthday.

Well we've had a fantastic crew out here today and one of the legacies we got huge attendance both on Facebook and on YouTube.

Did we actually make it to Facebook.

I don't want to say anything Facebook.

We got over we've got over 100 people here on Facebook with us and almost 500 people here on YouTube.

So thank you guys for all coming.

DOn't FORGET TO LIKE COMMENT subscribe and share please if you guys on Facebook please hit that share button helps get the word out there.

YouTube you as well.

Love hanging out with you guys.

We'll do more shenanigans here as the show goes on.

We're going to let cinnamon show you how to get this awesome backroom ocean Harrigan's all the time again for sure shenanigans relaxing good vibes mellowing out being happy.

That is what I'm saying I'm declaring now 2017.

Hello bubbles.

It's just going to be about being happy no let's make it about that.

Let's make it about feeling great.

Oh yeah.

And feeling lazy so you'll notice that I really tried to keep a very streaky canvas here.

Oh yeah.

And that really just gives that effect of beaming light coming down.

And if it gets too dark.


All you got to do come back was some white and just streak.

Look lighten it right up.

You want more dark downward streaks you can add those back in.

You can paint this several layers.


So I'm going to rinse this out.

Why are you doing that I'm going to say hey little brush Matty all of us joining us.

Thanks for joining us.

I love little shout out so you can I love little brushes.

We get asked a lot like what age is that little brushing I say.

Little brushes or whatever age they want to be.


It's really up to you whether you are or not self-declared little brushes.

Workbox picture picture go.

There it is.


It's given me feels today.

So now is it.

These are not expensive.


They just come in a bunch of sizes.

Sometimes they come with just handles it really really.

There's several different companies that make these they're all the same cost range.

And they just have little sponges.

The trick is is that you want different sizes.

If you paint with me alive you'll know we like to use a pound or two or two or two to create an effect something to get my glazing liquid on my MID's almost my biggest pouncer this is.

Now you have these in the description I have this exact set in the description.


So if you're trying to find think of.

You can find it and notice some sort of twist thing to load my paint on.

Yes and I have to do is come over here plant this down the canvas and go twist on me you know to my glazing liquid let's this can't this paint be sort of transparent.

Oh yeah.

So you can still see kind of the under the paint underneath the words underneath there and it kind of looks like on my camera that it rings a little washed out.

But it's actually just very gold.

It's very Do you need to adjust your camera.

Well you know we give them a I'm going to go and just get some Okur notice I'm not rinsing or worrying about the sponge at all.

This is a mid-size I have an economy set and you'll see this little counseling there.

This will work too.

Don't feel like it's got to be some crazy tool.

I'm still over here.


So it doesn't have to be a crazy tool it's just nice if they have different sizes and I like it.

If they'll go quite small I think that gives the best result in the Bocca technique to have a variety of sizes.

And when you're doing Bocca what you're really trying to mimic is a camera focus and so much better when this lens effect happens it will have some areas that are darker and lighter and the gory there and have some fun with it.

I'm a book out now what I do to keep these nights is when I'm not when I'm through using them.

I soak them in water so they don't dry probably gosh well the 500 people have over 400 likes.

Thank you.

Thank you very much specific to that.

I've got my Starbucks on New Year's Starbucks new year's style.

They're not a spa.

They don't sponsor anybody because they know we're all addicted to it and therefore they don't have to they're like yes they'll just drink our product.

What do you need to worry about.

Pat but I do have like the best people on the planet.

Working there I love them you know.

So I'm taking it some sizes down so you can see the different sides I'm picking one to about that big.


You can use this in so many so many techniques.

This is endless fun.

We did this with Jack Schelling 10 which was super fine.

We've done this on a lot of paintings.

We did a really complicated one with a butterfly that was from a viewer picked photograph.

Sometimes we'll do that.

How's your birthday going.

Do you know what.

We have a record turnout of people to come and hang out with us to fight like this is like you know for me I love to live without a net stuff so the more people that are here the more exciting life.

8 in this non-SS there were people who were like yes let's all do this.

It's like I just get more excited about it I think it's fun.

I do too.

Is when you're doing birth is at the end of the year the beginning of your can feel really tough I guess.


You know I have to say I break out on that one.

I got some brown brown some Brown.

That's nice.

I like that.

I like how you make that Boka just pop in there and you're just going to zoom in on some of these OK.

Yeah I'll show you my choice.

Oh whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.

I'm going to come over for rope.

Webcams a little old.

And now all is brand new.

All right New York we won.


So we're going to plan to see it.

And we just twist and I'm not sure this is what Martha Stewart meant what the hell but I'm coming over here to scorner All right come in and just twist and like this has been very successful for people.


They've been very very successful with this.

You can come in and do more Yoker if you want where Let's go here.

All right.

I think it's also nice to layer dots over other dots.

Oh yeah.

So that there's some depth to your pretend one is the fact that you're painting she says she's fine.

And then all I'm going to do now I'll show you here to hold this to I get a chance to insist that as this story this floating in water.

So that acrylic paint doesn't dry on it cool if you're acrylic paint dries just on anything you don't want it to.

I have a video about how to repair brushes but one of the first tricks is rubbing alcohol even hand sanitizer will break down acrylic paint inside and close your floors gets on anything.

Alcohol wipes are your friend.

Just something you might not know that you'd like to know.

And that's what it is.

It's just a sponge Dobber it is what it is just a sponge pouncer.


And you can find we've got a link for those dollar stores crafts stores.

They're everywhere.

These particular ones we put in the description link but these things are everywhere.

You just want a circular sponge that you can twist some clever person cut their own out.

You can use a sink sponge and cut it around here.

They did.

And then that would probably be just as well.

I'm going to take the birthday boy and do his least favorite thing that I do during a live show which is tear dry the painting only if you're brand new to painting when your hair drying you want to be a little bit back from the camera moving it around.

Not too high of a temperature because acrylic paint is slightly tempered well not slightly It's very active off some stuff while you're gone.



So you want to not overheat the painting drank it can make it over dark.


All right.

Well you're doing it man.

So we had.

A really good time yesterday and I'm going to see if I can.

I don't have to do some button pushing while we're talking here.


The Lisa and I after the show went over and took the image you'll actually have it right here.

And he pulls back up.

We took the image from yesterday's show and made a mug out of it.

And this turned out really really good.

We're really proud of this.

I may have the wrong on and worked out well.

Let me see if I can get a better.

Eric let me try this.

There you go.

So it turned out really nice.

We were really happy with how this mug turned out you can get it at shop.

The art Sherpa dotcom.

And we're going to be giving away that painting of course if you go out to the Yorkshire product it's got all the art all the information on that.

But we had such a good time with that and a whole bunch people asked for it when it hit me that I thought that was really cool so I kind of want to share that up there.

What else.

Oh my gosh we have a record number of people here.

I cannot believe how many of you just come to hang out with you with us.

Thank you thank you thank you so much.

And thank you for all the happy birthdays.

Really appreciate you appreciate it.

It's rare that I get to have a birthday.

I'm actually and I can say honestly I've never ever had a birthday with this many people.

So thank you for sort of the Happy Fourth to be here.

So well I think she's drawing her art.


Is rough.

All of her life.

Painting with people sipping coffee.

I'm sometimes more serious than those but not often not often but I was just saying you know I showed them the mug that we made and said I thought that was awesome.

When you get it.

And you know they should go and hang out w o the archer.

But look I got one of those I forgot this.

So here's what we do here we teach people how to paint very often in a painting party style.

And we do that for free and we have three videos a week at minimum to put out there that you can just come access any time and it looks like now it's YouTube and Facebook.

You can get to those lessons so you can the airport you need something to watch just mellow out to some art.

Right right there in your phone.

There's always we've got a chat going in both places now.

We're joined on Facebook on YouTube or on the grounds that I'll take a pencil.

No painting.

Now we're onto the girl.

I'm going to do this in pencil.

But mostly I just do this so that you guys can see this sketch them and show you how I draw this in.

But again they're still traceable.

I have a lot of you transfer the image lines to the graphite method on the back flip it over.

Actually if you see a girl walking in the rain actually Demel that specifically there so you can see me do that.

And plus she's a fantastic fast fast 12 30 minutes.

I'm going to draw this girl in though.


And the first thing I can do is to place her head.

I to turn and I think I am yeah I'm three fingers about down from the top of the canvas and my in my study.

Sometimes I do these without studies like yesterday where I just have an idea I'm going to just curve this around for the back of her skull shes got this hair.

In them and to bring down a little bit or foreheads in a show and then she this nice delicate little cheek comes down to go to the gym pulls back in first sweet little chin.

I dont really see any of her face rate.

It's just this sort of wind she's looking off into something in the party it's its calling to her.

And then I want a very nice long long current then real life delicate little neck you an IV.


And what I know is my beautiful bun right there.

She's got a sweet gentle slope to her shoulders.

And if you think that there's just a little ball joint here she ran a little shoulder off and the shoulders help me decide how to taper her body and her waist because I need to leave room for the arm right.

So there has to be some space for her arms.

Now I've got her ribs which are set really at the dip of the shoulder.

Mean if you're thinking human anatomy they're set right there.

Now we're going to play a little bit.

We're going to pretend she is just a size 0 0.

But I have to tell you when you're doing these girls think of anything that makes you happy.

I'm infamous for putting a lot of junk in my girls trunks.

I do the monkey on the Kardashians thing come in tribute paintings all the time.

I keep saying no.

We have a new record.

We have to go with a new a new name for what what we have today because we have we have over 500 likes and over 500 people here in the room with us today and we've got we have I think we have to do a full bubble sparkle party full bubbles.

I think it has to be I wish it was a German sparkle party but we haven't gotten permission to use the song but we can imagine it in her head.

And thank you guys we love having you all out here.

So it's it's it's a party here in our studio.

I don't think there's anything as funny as John Alabang.

I don't think there's anything more bubbles when a thousand people a thousand people look at it you know what's funny is I could paint solid through bubbles.

You know I don't even need to stop the bubbles the bubbles can roll on.

We'll just we'll have some more of Texas snowflakes floating down.

It does.

It does occasionally mess with with no room.

Cam doesn't like robo cam does not like the smell.

They mess with the focus here cameras for manual focus but robot cam is confused and distracted by bubbles.

What some folks food floats by.

There he goes.

Not so I don't know if anybody here has ever watched Gypsy Wedding.

Specially the European edition but can I imagine she's got quite a lot of weight on the skirt like 100 pounds hundred pounds of fabric.

Pull us up.

I want a little bit of the canvas to the side.

I might need to move up my easel I have this chair.

So I used to paint giant canvases.

Still can usually do I still occasionally do you sketch that down.

The reason that I don't often do graphite is graphite can bleed into acrylic paint which is great if you want it.

A bummer if you don't see a drop on Eisele arm hair I like to curve it in come out for the bicep muscle little thing about elbows elbows always are lined up at the waist.

So no matter what your girl's proportions are and I always say this to my Daryn she's drawing is what you want the elbows to line up at the waist.

Do a little bend in her arm coming off there.

Maybe I'll pull her down just a little bit so we see a little more of her arm.

We kind of have to figure out how you can tell that story and a little arm down here.

I have a little eraser here which is sort of funny that it works but it does.

Nobody's ever seen me do this.

But you can if the acrylic paint is dry you can actually race a little graphite if you need to.

Things you might not know it's like you make sure I have that nice sort of delicate arm that goes off the sides.

Now that we have her in I'm going to show you a very simple skin tone.

If you paint with me a long time you know already people come in every conceivable combination of amazing colors.

And as artists we have to just you know embrace that and look at that and I have books I recommend on color mixing for that.

But we're going to do a very very simple skin tone and I'm telling you how to customize that for your preferences.

And it's really easy.

Good for beginners.

Very friendly.

So I'm going to I mean skin tone rate at its base mostly but not always has a bit of a peach cast to it sometimes it's a warmer sometimes it's a ruddier sometimes it's a Pinker you know in so when working with that that's what we want to do I'm going to pull out my trusty bright.

This is a number four right.

It's the size of the brushes right here.

Number four.

You can see what it is in relationship to my thumb.


Has a stiff bristle sometimes brushes can have a really soft bristle it makes it hard to paint.

He says this is for credit paint and has a stiff bristle but it's synthetic not bristles because bristles will soften when they get wet.

And I mean take a little of my corner Akra down over to my yellow ochre.

And I still want my yellow ochre I want her to be a pink.

But I'm going to add a little of my burnt sienna to it when I say a little I'm talking about see that little be there.


I'm not having big amounts.

When you look at skin tone recipes it'll say one part to two parts this and really they're talking about about that much pain unless you're mixing it up with a pallet.


So once I have a base color I like I offload my brush which is I press off paint.

If you have trouble doing that you can always wipe out on sacrificial towel or paper towel.


Just don't put it back in your kitchen.

Never underestimate Yes don't eat.

Don't eat with paint.

I'm going to bring this over to my white and I'm going to make light skin tone and I'm going to point out that it's the amount of lightning to it that determines the depth of the skin tones.

So you do that however you feel there's a lot of range of human being here and I'm going to make a little Wii coming down.

It's my sound that the go I'm going to paint that up those of you that do make up you're really really going to understand issues like oh like this is warm this is cool right.

If you're trying to do a darker darker skin tone consider lightening with the yellow ochre more often than the white.

Oh ok.

Just a thing that helps.

And I'm going to do a whole special video on this because I really like people to just be able to paint themselves in their paintings and tell their stories.

I like to tell my story.

Your story could be a little different than mine.

And that is OK.

You should always feel like you can tell your story.

So I'm just painting her in with this color when my paint isn't getting on my canvas nicely what I do is I get a little water see just the tip and I kind of mix that into improve flow.

I can also use my glazing medium to improve flow.

So water or glazing mean work and that's the thing you see me doing with my paint brush gets overloaded or offload or sacrificial tile to make sure it doesn't creep up in my brush too much load a bead on your brush and just painter in one of the top questions I get is I'm not getting enough paint on my canvas.

And you wouldn't think that would be something that would bother people or would happen.

But it really does it's real common.

And generally that's just about you maybe not being aware of high load and off load my brush.

So I'm pulling another bead.

Can you see a little bead.

Oh yeah.

Hopefully this is interesting is oyster shucking.

I just discovered that I live oyster shack.

There's some crazy things on the tubes.

Everybody like on the East Coast of Canada that does not get that whole activity problem it's like yeah that's like Wednesday dinners.

Not really a show I'm watching but that's real big right now.

If I should do it.

Waste your shucking painting.

So I'm bringing the skin tone a little back even though I know I'm putting a hairline there right.

And once I have her base skin tone in I'm going to add for my colors can turn red hair a little white just a little bit and just on the shoulders and along the neck I'm going to add just a smidge from to try to make some more adjustments to the audio.

We have a little pitchy.

No it seems like you'll wish me a little more.

You're all you'll be able to get tuned in there and a little bit at the top of her cheek and that's at see one that easy you know.

Now for her dress for her dress my brush to the side I'm going to get my black.

This is Marge black.

We talked about this at the beginning.

I hope you guys at Facebook are having fun.

This is really new thing that we're able to bring you know a little more black than that.

Look we see Honor out there on her.

How are you.

We have a whole bunch of our crews out here in the house.

I want to see Heidi Kym's all the cams and I want to repeat break before we start in the black dress and I see I see Mark Mona.


So we.

And when we see them nude Do you see some new people.

I see.

Let's see here names we don't know.

Serino or Hunter.

Hunter seems new.

Hi Serina.

If you're not new Tell John to just suck it truly is new here issues.

She's just she's from South Africa.

So we've got so and.


She's new.

Hi Mary are you doing.

And oh gosh let's see here.

So it's over 550 people here with us all over the world shout out where you're from.

Yeah I mean that's the interesting thing about what we do we're all live we have a community generally they call themselves the sure bet your pets live all over the world when they get together in group we call it have got to 2:00 a.


to watch us.

I tried so hard I got on the world clock.

It's almost midnight whenever Lucy is caught with a wink and I'll be on my tv is globally friendly as possible.

It is really hard.

The plane is big and it is not a good time for somebody somewhere.

Every time we go on the show you just just to see you can see just just for a couple seconds a couple of seconds just going to go.

Number two to number.

There you go.

Oh I see.

Hi Brad.

GRAHAM And Pam Smith and Sophie Santiago.

I see somebody from Florida.

I see somebody from Atlanta in Milwaukee Wisconsin.

Well you've gone from UK Kentucky USA Alabama Ontario Canada Hawaii.

And this is why I'm so jealous of Hawaii right there.



And that is why I don't get the chad is you.

You've just given me my up close can.

I don't even get me.

My whole engagement got taken away.

You cried out OK.

Get back.

All right.

You get me back.

I don't know.

We're back.

You cannot imagine how hard it is.

What he really wanted to do this for his birthday too.

You guys know him.

I was like what you want to do for your birthday.

Like I'd like to go live in the community because it's like you know this is where I wanted to have what like I'm not going to go out anywhere.

You know it's it's you know my biology doesn't allow me to go out and do all the same sort of things that other people get to do and I couldn't imagine a better time than to hang out with.

Oh my gosh over 550 you're my closest friends.

So yeah I think that's a pretty good perk if you were expecting gaming.

This is not that we teach painting about your shock me notification was like somebody you're like I don't know what what is this.

This lady has purple hair and head and coffee.

This is the cure to everything.

All we need.

I'm a fan of the job of being it's probably an intrepid class starship in a pot of coffee.

I wonder if anyone is doing the Janeway voyage your marathon today.

I'm not sure.

All right.

So I have got this number six brain.

Now look if you don't have the exact brush I have.

Don't stress on it.

I tell you what I have and show you what I have so you can best honing your results but it's not like one of these things like you've got to use exactly what I'm using on you won't get it.

It's not like that at all.

This is literally like you have what you have.

I'll show you what I've got and hopefully between the two of us talking back and forth you're going to get a successful painting.

So I'm going to dip this in the cup.

Greg off the extra water because I don't want too much water my chronic pain and I'm going to take my black and brown.

So terrible at not mixing almost a one to one.

Carolina Karelin no comment.

I added that too.

All right.

Bill has been paying along with us for a year now and she's just this is your first time between Hello.

So why i love it when people come in and it's been you know they've been carrying with us a long time and they're just getting their first chance to tell us.

And I love I love seeing pictures we're like James Wilson in a painting and all see like three or four paintings of ours in the back.

Why don't you just meet with us for a long time you know pretty darn.

So it's I miss you now.

I'm going to not put in the curl yet.

I'm going to just put in the hairline warming and just come here down to the bud.


So you're the feather.

There's a little quail feather on your head.

It's just that.



You just got a little over excited with my hands when I meet them.

Let's all just be honest.

I got a little arty farty.

It's even the meat quail feather tails just just right there.

I'm like a Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

The struggle is real and I'm going to just very nicely doube in my hair now something and I'm doing that you might not know to do as a new artist.

What's that is I'm allowing the paint to be a little uneven.

Why is that.

Because I know it creates tonality.

If you think of somebody like Bob Ross some of what he did when he was painters matins the happy closet's he was letting stuff shine through.

And that light to dark that naturally happens created a lot of his painting for him.

And that can be true for you too right now.

So you can go ahead and paint it all solved but maybe think about the power of allowing it to be a little uneven here because how much of that is sort of late in hair.

Oh yeah.

And that sort of implied that there was a whole lot of hair happening in that some of it was deeper in value and some of it was lighter.

You know I didn't paint some genius thing here.

I just sort of allowed it to be.

Now I'm the come over I'm going to rinse my brush out.

I kind of sometimes like to press down to the bottom of the cut and dried off.

I'd like to make sure that I'm not carrying a bunch of pigment.

I don't mean to.


You can always check it to make sure it's not too wet.

And my take a little blue into my black and I'm going to paint in the base of my dress.

I need something to work for Wrubel camps.

Does need sound effects.

We are a little overly attached and I'm going to start in the venum minute.

Just this once the dress is sort of an to the design of the dress and I can't see that there are so many happy birthdays that are coming in.

I just I mean it's there's there has to have been five hundred happy birthdays if there's bad is the nicest birthday gift ever for.

So thank you thank you thank you guys it's like my favorite birthday yet.

So and happy birthday to everyone who is December through January.

These are rough birthdays to have and I think that there's a lot of anniversaries happening today as the honors one year anniversary with us.

She started watching us one year ago today.

Oh that's right.

She came in like What the heck is it.

She was like hey this is a family friendly show.

Oh yeah I'm cool.

I'm telling you I can do that.

Yeah all right.

How's it go.

How does that you are crazy people.

This has been a complete gift to our community ever since.

And that's why we have so many of you guys.

You know I just can't was sure paths and lightkeeper's that make our everyday employees brand brand new to what this is when we say like keeper we have members of our community who make it their mission to be kind and supportive of other new artists or journeys that are coming up and they never stop Leeman a kind comment or being supportive of new painters.

That can be hard to find when you're new to painting.

Yeah you know sometimes our family loves us but they don't always know how to support us.

It's you know the tough thing is when you're first painting you know everything you're doing wrong.

I mean like really.

It's like it doesn't take a rocket you know you're like man I know my tree looks like you know it was drawn by like a Flintstones universe.

But what I need to do is see how nice my my is because that's what I got right.


That's the hardest thing is a new painters to know what you did well.


And what you need is the support of people to show you where you're getting things right.

So you can keep refining those skills.

And that's what we're here for.

That's what we do.

That's why I love my job.

He is.

Now we don't always do live.

Not always.

Not always.

We do some prerecorded.

And those are pretty quick pretty direct.


We get a lot of notes on chatting.

YouTube is always very creative about sharing.

It's YouTube the population we use.

We're going to tell.

So we're talking just it's not an HSM our show that's about to take whispered Weisbrod.

I ran into that if somebody was to see an art show and everybody was whispering a bit like what is going on.

You're on like April 1st.

We'll do that.

We'll just do an all whispering show.

Remember remember the Saturday Night Live skits were like one person is the hands and the other person.

I feel like we got to do that.

And the other person is the it's about the only way I'm going to get you painting.

So I'm just painting this all in solid with black and blue.

If you got paints for the holidays Yeah you're loving tremendous supportive friends family family member whoever watches some paints paints come in grades from student to professional.

And the thing our student paints is is that sometimes they don't have a lot of pigment.

So one of the differences you might be facing is that I have professional paints and they have a lot of pigment in it.

Very little work for me to cover the whole canvas.

If you find your painting you're black and it's not covering the way you like very probably.

It's just that it's a student paint and you may need to do two coats instead of one.

Not a big deal.

That's something to get stressed over just something to know.

Like oh yeah I got to let it dry does I go.

No biggie.

I've got time.

They were curious how many hoops do you think this is.

Oh this is this is a hoot.

This is a hoot.

This is one hoot.

Especially if you use the traceable.


It could be a hoot and a half if you're having fun but it's you know it's a one painting.


And when we say when we mean some pretty sure we like to grade our paintings on a scale of one to three hoots one who being like you know a no no problem painting and a 3 B and you know you're going to you're going to flex your beginner skills to make that happen.

But you know that's three minutes are generally like you've done some paintings you've done a game and you don't really want to go out on your own quite yet but you'd like to be challenged.


We like to think we're here for your you know we've got those first paintings for you and you'll wind up when you're getting started.

Yeah there's like over 300 paintings you can do right now.


Now Carol all that trace of all those resources just right here.

Oh it's New Year's in South Africa.

So happy new year.

South Africa.

It just it is just it.

New Year's in South Africa because it's you know what's the name of your pet store in South Africa.

We'd like to ask each other that very pretty and that's it.

That's a big share we do in our communities like you take a picture your paint store and I'll take a picture.

It makes very strange trade.

We're up to submit Sipek said Sandy was asking Did John ever drive a paintbrush or is he just the camera person just a button pusher.

Now I am going to get him to paint at some point and he is creative in a lot of ways.

He loves to make and build and he does paint things it just is cars.

It's just painting is a function of a of other projects not the expression for me not the not the expression in and of itself.

I mean like I like music I play music just to goose you know to express myself.

So it's just fantastic if you are a bunch of friends that are artistic and musical.

You know get together for big music art jam session.

It is the best most fun time ever you get your friends with guitars and get your friend Allen right now is like yes you know you get together in a room and you and then you stick your writer friends in the quiet corner because writers always like to go to that weird quiet corner with our stuff.

I don't know because and see that's why we just have for the studio it's because if you just leave the two of us alone in here it is the same nonsense.

It's just that that's what you get is you get us all it's happening.

So I take my black and I've switched to a smaller brush.

This is back to my number four has BGF.

Happy New Year made me happy new year.

That's really cool.

I actually had a friend from grade school moved to Tasmania but this was before Google.

So all I had was cartoon's to have any idea.

What was going to happen.

Peter I'm correct you may have to tell me that's the person you do OK.


No that was his name.

Oh I was at school I was just very nice ne.

It was just a non sequitur.


So so what I'm doing is I'm on the edge of my brush here that's how I get a fine line.

Now this particular brush right here does hold a good edge for me.

If you're having trouble getting a line this fine.

You may want to consider locating what's called the detail bresh or agent so this is a 3 over 0 studio around these are used a lot of times in miniature painting.

Sometimes packages of brushes quill feather keeps messing with my camera focus.

So I'm going to do slightly higher on the back.

Or you could keep it if you could keep this very low on the back if you wanted to.

Them or rip that quill feather right off it's OK it's going to go on.

It's going to go community just to just paint this the height you want I've kind of a modest back going here.

I like that you like that.

Is it too bad.

And I'm going to get Mike detail that I just showed you which is a 3 0 0 0 work.

12 hours 0 towers or any of these miniature tiny tiny little brushes.

If you think yourself I could put eyeliner on with it's good size.

And if you have some really know what she's talking about just small brush picks often work shockingly to make fine lines too.

People always forget them.

I'm going to come in just lightly outline.

I like to rest my hand of my canvases dry a little bit of canvas.

And then with a very light brush pressure the harder I press if I press hard the brush splays out makes a thick line.

Now if I press lightly the brush makes a very thin line.

See just about pressure and you'll see me kind of I've got some moisture on here and I do this twist to make sure my brushes an overloaded and I load just the tip.

All things that the closed captioning does not understand.

Now there have been people asking any of the brushes that you've seen here you can find it to brush guys.


And if you use the code aren't Sherpa then you'll get 5 percent off there.

So that's always nice.

Yeah it's always pretty awesome.

So go buy and they ship worldwide.

They do.

They do not sponsor we just like them.



So they should say that they don't they don't pay us to put it to take us to lunch once they send us over a nice box or sorto.

I don't want to say we're not there's a sponsored group perhaps there is friendship we like that we really like them and we definitely have.

We really liked them because they take care of you guys.

And that's that's a lot of the reason why we ended up working with them so much.

But ultimately if you need it no matter where you're at around the world you'd be brushes Gouverneur of the brush guys dotcom.

You use the coupon code art Sherpa give yourself 5 percent off and tell them how awesome they are and that the shirt was them because they're lovely guys.

They were like sweethearts and happy New Year to them.

Bubble bubble.

OK we're going to actually I've gone through so much stuff we have to order more but we have over 600 likes right now and there's 556.

That means that new KISS I guess Chad is on fire.

I mean like people are so happy to be here with us today and we don't have to have you.


Thank you for coming.

Couldn't be a happier day for us.

And you know why Ivan can you see Facebook at all because I have no access.

On fire.

Be careful.

It's on fire.

No birthday kiss.

Been married a long time so it's good.

We still have a kiss going.

You know like I was saying you know it's I've said more and more I've said this a lot as we've approached the end of this.

I want to say it's OK keep going.

You got to get up to it.

I'm just happy to be here with everybody.

You know we sit around I talked about this this morning especially because it's you know it's one of those days but we're really grateful to be doing this with you guys.

You know.

There's a spider man.

He just popped his little head over there.

You saw the bubbles call him in there a little spider man down there.

That's my sign.


I guess I can never thank him.

I know it's making bubbles on the floor.

It's fine.

It doesn't hurt my pain in my journey cause late but mostly so I don't put pain in drink.

So thank you guys for coming to be a part of it.

I'm going to load up a little this blue on the tip of my rash.

And some of this weight and then I'm going to come here and brush away.

Just the highlight in her dress.

So I am on this.

It's a number six.

And this is like the reflection on the shiny black dress if you've ever observe shiny black dresses that they have these sometimes high reflections higher inflection points.

And I want a little more blue in my reflection point.

I love the little blue.

Listen you can use also merino if you don't have Teyla or Cobalt.

You know sometimes areas of the world don't have every color I have don't let that worry you.

Colors are just guidelines for shoulder feelin today I know you're doing a lot of painting yesterday.

You know actually pretty good.

Is it pretty good.


This is a good position and pretty good at my and my seeding almost to my shoulder.

My slide rule came over a couple inches so that I can rebel cam.

So we did that weird crazy canvass yesterday which was like 12 by 30 and that meant that we had to move our equipment off its normal spot which is like it's kind of interesting when ever we do a big studio thing like if we do a table project we're have to be cable centric.

Here we go where we have company over.

We're going live paint with somebody.

It's interesting to reset Quitman don't ever leave your brushes in water like I just did there and you're right about water.

It's good time to get fresh water now fresh.

If you have not.

And you can go out to the archer dotcom and go hang out with a chat or go shoptalk there ship dot call and get all the cool mugs that we have for your display.


I'm a plug.

So we're you are in the chat and be like hey I'm hanging out with my friends.

Meet some cool people who do art.

We've got artist trading cards going there were going to be like better than a pen pal trademark around the world.

Fun stuff.


The next thing I do some kind of work on the hair a little bit.



And so can I get some just black loaded on this brush.

This is a number to break.

You're going to notice I paint with a lot of bright I get asked a question like Why do I paint with many braids all on your hair could get in your hair.

OK does this help it why I know you're fine.

I move the camera so your quill feather is no longer in the way.

Oh I didn't used to be that was I kind of at the back of her head I'm Darkwing a little area with the black and maybe like gray here a little bit.

I'm going to come get a little bit.

I want to make that little curl.

It's the whole Bible that comes here and curls a little bit into our cheek great.

I'm going to brush a little bit of the start.

So there's now you had this brown and a little bit too were a bun on a dry brush.

Notice that there's a lot of the brown showing through.

All right.

Now I'm going to rinse this out.

Add them and take a little of my black over to my brown and get a smidge of way and I'm going to just up here lightly.

This pressure is like a butterfly wing kissing the canvas.

That's how I get this real faint effect don't have a lot of water and my brush paint is kind of dry on the brush little short brush strokes just pulling it down making a little highly maybe a little bit pulling down here.

Her hair is quite dark so there would be a nice reflection on this.

She's you know she got beautiful healthy hair so shiny a little bit here at the top of the bun just a couple of places you don't want to put in gray hair unless you're trying to say no she's fabulous advance style.

If you want gray hair you can put it you have some great hair.

We're going to show you how to paint gray hair blond hair brown hair black hair all kinds hair soon.

And we've got those videos that's it's going to be really fun.

We've got mermaid coming up next Saturday.

I just don't have it scheduled early.

I'm a poor little my yellow ochre out in a little of my halo blue.


Happy New Year from Thailand too.

Happy New Year in Thailand.

That is cool.

What are you doing in Thailand today and tonight.

Is it night time day time.

Will it be New Year's Eve.

They can be midnight or somewhere like that today.

So just ask.

I don't think so.

I don't think so.

I don't now it's how I only know what the world clock tells me as John's actually travel around the world so he knows I am somewhat traveled.

You try to travel not as you can it's easier to say we're John hasn't been here he says.


There are days that like that I'm going to put some vines up here where you can go.

So I've loaded on my little number to brush this thing.

This fellow in yellow and I made this green that is more blue and yellow.

That's how I get it.

So what I'm trying to make a green I'm trying to make one that's a little more blue than yellow which means there's just a little more blue in the mix than yellow.

But I don't want it to be completely blue I still want to feel like a green paint.



And then I'm going to make as many vines as make me happy.

There's a very specific thing I might get a little more yellow into it as many vines as make you happy.

And when I go to make leaves they're going to be like little diamond shapes pull little stem out make a little diamond shape.

If you're having trouble seeing it add a little weight to your pain and it will help it pop up because it will go a little meant to see help it pop that will really help too if your paint is thin on pigment to still get a good result.

Poor little stem out make that little diamond shape.

NORRIS I'm just very kind of sketchy with this paint is sketchy with the paint I'm sketchy is sketchy so I'm very relaxed into that.

I'm offloading which is pushing the paint out of my brush and reloading on the tips so I have it where I have control.

I cannot tell you how much these words in description will cause closed captioning a problem.

I have to I don't really I'm an attorney with an art show.

Hi I'm an attorney and I'm going to show you how to think about now or has no idea what I'm saying when I say Quinn knackered don't quacks like a dog.

I've got some crazy.

It's quite like a dog read.

And the number of good news is.


Doesn't like I'm gunna or.


Y'all makes it real mad over Texas drole.

And yeah no drawl.

I'm sure we just messed with the last five minutes I'm sure.

Like I'm going to be regretting these.

Who's going to be going.


Last time when we were correcting the caption look I'm going to speak like this from now on.

So with the closed captioning machine knows what I am saying.

I mean if you ever come here and I'm doing that you'll know what happened is closed captioning finally just broke me.

We have an amazing team of close cops here.

People who volunteer in caption videos for accessibility and I have such gratitude in having done some close captioning that we do.

We all jump in and do that.

It's just it's just really hard hard hard work.

It is.

I know we're all not a fan necessarily the YouTube Heroes program so grab a little more you'll win a little more weight.

And that was just to help increase the mount or body my pain and also to make sure that I had enough for many many bites.

I like many many bites.


I'm going to put a stem off here and all stem off here.

And remember if your brush isn't wanting you do lines switch to a detail.

I'm also going to show you how to correct a mistake because some of you might be very very brainy to painting with me night not be sure how to fix a mistake in really panic.

So I'm going to make a big mistake I'm to go like that oh no oh no.

What shall you do.



That used to really freaked him out.

I did that but now he I fix it so he's not as impressed.

But if you're new It'll feel really cool.

I have to do a mistake that worries him in future.

Anything in acrylic paint one of the things I love about acrylic paint is that it doesn't take very long to dry.

And we're going to give a shout out to Daisy who is rocking out the answers on Facebook right now.

You're my hero in this fictional conversation that we were having with her community shares her said.

I don't know why we have to get in falsetto.

I don't know but what I do know is letting people know that there's art out there for them that they can just do from their home.

Mm hmm.

You know you don't have to be out there feeling anxious or worried in public.

You can just do this wherever you're at and you know it's kind of awesome is that.

We love having you guys here we're generally out messing around on these holiday weekends.

And there's a there's a collection of them for collection at the archer back home.


I'm going to go ahead and take this number to get going again on my flowers.

The thing about that you saw me do with the acrylic paint is one of the reasons I love it when your paint is dry it really means that you can fix any mistakes you're never stuck with anything and an acrylic painting.

There are a bunch of folks on Facebook asking where you keep most of your paintings are your lessons where are they available.

So the lessons are all well you know up until just today you guys are here for an inaugural lesson.


On Facebook though we do have a lot of weird little videos that we've done on YouTube.

However we realize that we can do them on Facebook as well.

So we will all start to be on Facebook but if you want to find one of the 300 lessons they're all on Facebook on YouTube you trust and find our 300 paintings we do the big art Quest is there there is access to all of those and yeah pretty cool stuff.

Pretty cool stuff.

We think it's cool.

I don't know if it's actually cool.

We like it.

But apparently we're not competing with Leister shocking never going to get over the.

They are all I think is cool.

But this all is like wow Wister Shaq.

So it's something that people watch.

Samantha saw that two of her family members were watching.

Really it was like you wouldn't be watching it so she came over to watch because her other family watching and she was like she just loves that her family is watching and she's watching and that's so cool.

And you guys can all paint together and we have a picture of tribal hanging out together.

Watch it.

I love it.

We have so many family members that are maybe not together.


And you know maybe somebody in the military or somebody is at work far away or kids have gone to college trade just stuff happens life happens and they get on Skype or Google Hangouts and they all watch the show and paint together virtually.

And I think that is the coolest thing ever.

So it's like they're having a painting party together even when they can't be together.

And that's that's a lot of fun and it is kind of it's what some of my favorite pictures to get are the pictures of family paints or friend paints where everybody is across the world.

So I put in amount of vines that I like in that you're just going to go through here.

You're mixing a little bit of the vine there on the brush.


So you'll see that my paint brush is always kind of a hot mess.

Yeah that's a hot mess.

Yeah I might get some wine over here.

See I got that on there but it's not like soup or mix together.

Yes I know it's going to do it on the canvas and the next thing I'm going to do is when I come back over my vines and highlight half my leaves with this sort of yellow green it's the first time and you were just roughing in some some basically leaf like shapes and like shapes.

And now I'm adding another layer of paint to how you can be as tidy with this or as expressive with this as you like painting your painting is not supposed to look exactly like mine that your painting is supposed to look exactly like yours.

Did you get this dry first.

These are dry.


Acrylic paint can be very tough to paint.

There is a way to do it in the wet and we do that sometimes on the show but it can be tough to put a wet layer you know over another layer.

And they're both wet because that's how we get blending in acrylic.

So Todd asked Todd on Facebook and I'd like to say I'd love to answer it.

It's a good question on Facebook.

Serious question when you start beating harder paintings.

How do you get past the thought it over my head how that can come up sometimes is the painter.

How do you get past that.

I think how I know I personally got past that because we always being over our head is painters.


I mean we always be that blessed is that when you first are in the painting there's a real succeed fail kind of component of the experience where you feel like a painting succeeds for you feel like a painting has failed.

And then as you do it over time you kind of come to this.

A painting just is I am in a process of a painting and a painting has come to an end and has concluded and it may or may not live on my wall or may go live with my aunt or it may sell at a show rate but you get more into the it's about me going through the process of creating it is where its real value is at.


And the result is kind of like an after effect like a symptom of you spinning that creative time.

You got to realize that even if you're in over your head it's if you're in over your head and it's a heart surgery that's that's serious.

Yeah right.

If you're in over your head and you're a bomb specialist that's serious.

But if you're in over your head in a painting.

The worst thing that happens is that your your grand goals don't necessarily all resolve the way you'd hoped and then you're going to gain smart skills that you didn't have when you started the big project that you'll use in other future products.

And if you're really dogged and determine which I totally challenge you to be and you keep trying to do the thing that's hard you're going to get there because nothing makes better artists than practice perseverance and termination.

It is not talent based.

It is about being leg.

This is the thing I'm going to do.

No matter what.

Yeah right.

If I could add to that and say that yeah to complete the project that you feel that you're in over your head on the finishes you know because I think you bring things to a completion whether you are happy with the completed state or not.

Breguet to completion is a lot a lot of the growth you know because you can always do another one but finishing I think is a lot of that that that process that helps you grow.

That's a hard thing.

And little brushes a little brushes want to crumple up artwork before they're done.


Before they bring it to completion and they and they really get their biggest growth you too.

Wayne you work the whole thing out whether it works out or not.

I say this a lot but if you're brand new here you might not know.

I feel like about every tenth painting of mine just does not work out.

I don't know what happens.

Just the idea I had or something 11 painting now that's going to be the bomb diggity.

So I've just got to do is get through the painting that's annoying me.

Now what do you do in there right now.

I'm taking a little white into the mixture and just creating a bit of a highlight.


Along the stems see helping them pop against the dress.


I like that.

Now I've got stems and like I like I can take a little bit of what's left of my green.

If I'm out of green like I am now a dry to my palate like acrylic paint does.

I'm going to mix up my green with my yellow ochre and my failed blue again.

Now I'm going take my brush on the corner see how this person has a corner on this brush has a corner I'm trying to get her away.


There we go has a corner.

Zoom in.

I'm going to press down into the corner.

Sam pressing down.

Yeah I got it.

Look at what that makes like a relief doesn't it.

It certainly does.

And just pressing it down and making these little leaves.

That's how you get those tiny leaves right.

They're super super easy.

Now the funnest roses you'll ever paint.

So these roses are like a cabbage rose and they're kind of done with like these crazy little brushstrokes and you just keep layering them.

They should be loose.

They should be messy.

They should be a little bit crazy.

It's real funny you guys will often do create rows.

Be very forgiving in my rose and was really critical of your job.

So your big job here is to just enjoy the process of painting the rows and not get too wound up into what you think a rose is because right now it's your thoughts about a rose that's most likely to cause you to get stressed out.

So just let go of your conceptions of roses and let the Rose you're now creating be I think that's beautiful person.

So I'm going to put a little my quintic or magenta.

Into my brush you can see it's just on the tip here and I pull out a little white paint.

See it's not really mixed.

It's sort of loaded.

Yes how imma start.

And then what I'm going to do is I want to make a big kind of focal Rose right here and I'm on the tip of my brush on the corner.

What are you up to right.

And I'm curving brush strokes around each other.

I'm not trying to paint out every ounce of the black paint I'm worried about them more worried about making these rounded brush strokes pressed down hard really pressed down hard release get one more pain if you need it.

Pressing down Hurn will see how messy this is crazy to make this Cowbridge Rose.

And I want this to be fairly large and vocal.

I need roses of different sizes otherwise this can get too uniform.

Now I'm getting another bead of both.

Maybe come over here and talk about another really kind of focused Rose soon.

Just when I first precedent I'm just trying to make a little circle space another circle around another circle around this one's much Pinker.

Oh yeah.

But it doesn't really matter because there's layers to these guys.

And I want to be in the layers.

That one's pretty big right.


Get another little Rose.

I'm just doing these beads on here.

Maybe another one down here.

Because I'm going to have to mix in some smaller roses as well.

I'm just doing this cur brushstrokes.

Oh yeah.

So we have so much we've seen so many roses receive them as gifts given them as gifts.

You know growing on the side of the road so many roses that sometimes it's hard to just relax and say feels like a rock.

Oh yeah.

Is Rose ask I'm going to pull little my yellow ochre out makes it into my red a little bit see now get a bead of my white.

These are all hot mess together and makes them more like maybe smaller roses.

Some There were some folks on Facebook asking about what we know if any of these paintings are for sale.

And we don't we don't put we don't put these paintings up for sale.

They belong to the community so that they're available whenever we do a shows or get togethers for people of you and what we do have some.

We have what we do we put up mugs and T-shirts and posters of our posters but mugs and T-shirts we're talking about do.

We're literally doing some posters and some prints and things we're going to see about that in the near future.

But you got to shop North Yorkshire dotcom and find a lot of the merchandise that we do have for sale there.

And of course we're teaching you how to paint it.

So the coolest thing about this is you can make it one you can do this.

It's like it grabbed a lot of ochre on that.

And just to let people now and this group of Max but I haven't rinsed my brush.

The pink is there.

Now I'm just making these little circles with these lines around the circles.


We early on decided to not try to sell the artwork that keep it for the community.

So now I make smaller little ones or maybe I'll make one that fits right here.

Tweens friends and he could be a little like kind of his little heads facing this way.

How do those like i add more to the back and over here see faces that way all feel a little white just don't feel like he's got a plan to put it in the center there or that.

He just comes out this hot mess is most fine.

That was so cool.

It does.

You can do this all day when you figure out this little cabbage rose swirl.

If you're having trouble getting it I promise you it's going to be in the stroke where I see it people feel like they're really struggling is they make these kinds of strokes.

I want to do it this way and point out it's not as bad as you might think because I'll get pictures of this and say My Rose didn't work.

I'm like actually it's not as bad as you say.

It's just more architectural.


But if you do that and you're feeling like it's just too rigid.

Just come back with white paint and it's about the circle that your hand is making Yeah see how my hand is making a circle and I fix that Rose you can't really get a rose in here that you can't do something with I'm going to get some yellow maybe a millière rose on top of this rose.

Regina loves the roses she said that shoes have a lot of trouble and this really helps.

These are super fun.

But just know that even though they're easy and they're really beginner friendly they're still sort of like knowing when to be OK and relaxed about things that can be really tough when you're new to painting and people are painting for a while they get really like yeah it's all good.

There's a painting video of the three amigos.

And I think it's a your life.

And the guys are just like this one guy comes up and there's these three guys and they're in their clothes now like.

They're all big deal watercolors.

They come together and he's like I don't know I'm going to get some stuff and he grabs a dirty pallet and there's this big she Wockhardt paper and you just get the brush rising and goes he's like I don't know.

Some guys some skin Scott some city city city and literally it's like a photograph develop just like magic.

And he's like you know don't get too tense about it.

I totally know what it was during his day was like I don't know building building building a straight line straight line like that but we're all just like oh it's someone's by him.

And we do it in the falsetto excited voice because we're all like that's what we do.

I'm pulling some more weight onto this and I feel like I want another little small rosary here maybe another little little one.

So now I'm putting some little ones here.

They're real small just a couple little brushstrokes.

So you're just filling them all in.

Believe it or not there's a whole nother layer to these that are still coming.

Just this one has more weight on it.

Well when I do an art Hi5 one of my friends out there trends is painting along with this trend to give this one to his mom.

That's wonderful.

I like that.

I'm just grabbing some yellow ochre and some the twinax are down.

See they come together make kind of more of an orange.

Thanks for joining us today Trent.

Appreciate you coming by.

And I'd like to fill in these little spots with the little roses that you kind of basically see.

But now when they get more white make another big one right here.

Curve that brushstroke around Kerber and a good friend of mine Angela Anderson said think about it like being bricks lay bricks on the road all of us have it Drewes tech these are like a cabbage rose technique.

You're making little cabbage roses.


Now you're making hybrid teas because those are very tidy little buggers.

Mm hmm.

Cabbage roses are not everybody in the UK goes yes yes yes.

So your tip tip for doing cabbage roses is in the is is there.

Is that the brick.

Yes I'm human.

I'm bricklaying.

Messy messy paint bricklaying.

Just a little circular movements and yeah just yeah.

When you get it you'll get it.

Saw little zoom in I don't know how much you can zoom in but let's show a little what.


So I've got a little circle stroke every character around the outside making all sort of stroke and another little circle stroke another one.

And if I see a lot of it's about leaving that I hate to mix on the brush makes that pain on the brush let the pain do the work.


So if you need to be working so hard and work hard all week.

So when I have that layer down one thing that I'm going to do is I'm going to come get white loaded on the tip of my brush.

I haven't rinsed it shit on Facebook was asking for help with her.

So when I come right here and work the center.


So you've got this and you're however you feel about your roses.

I'm going to say wait.

All right.

Put a penny one every Crowland painting has like a crazy stage stage that makes you question your decision to be creative makes you question yourself as a person.

Happens to me happens to everybody.

There's just it's just like watercolor develops like a photograph.


But it can go south on your face which is the issue with color when it goes wrong it goes so wrong.

But when it comes together it's like it's like a developing photograph it has no ugly stage.

Rain oils to you like watch Bob he's like it's clouds clouds clouds Klawonn you like my but acrylic acrylic says you've got to have faith.

They got to have that hey George where you are in heaven.

Well actually Cruzan right along here I'm sure this is a real simple fun painting.


So I'm hanging this way and I'm creating a focus in the center here with these strokes so you know I'm doing that oh you're adding another layer on this.

Now adding another layer there you come here.

And these guys are going to get some.

You can it's not it's not about getting the rose and want it done you are passive players on it.

These are some somewhere's come in here I've got more Wykes I want these to be more pink.

Now are you messing with your brush pusher here.

No this is amid brush pressure.

I'm never like pressing in if I were to press in.

I'll show you too hard.

If I was pressing real hard this is the result I'd get.

Oh you don't want that.

That would be a little too hard and notice how it's taking all the delicacy of my stroke away.


So let me reshape my brush.

I'm going to reload with.

I want to make sure I have a little dusting of pink on there so the White dispells it comes out.

So my camera here I'm a fix this because I'm on the corner edge right here and I'm just delicately touching my rose.

Another thing you might do is if you're losing it because it's too light you come back with just pure backdown that and we're going to give a major round of applause for eon the off kilter crowd is a playing part of ink giver on YouTube.

So big art high fives to him.

Thank you.

And he's part of our wonderful community and my very fun channel.

Does a lot of cricket projects and really cool crafting projects.

Thus the off kilter craft are a clue to what he might possibly do.

And he was on America's Funniest Home Videos for being funny.

Hashtag YouTube.

So I'm just adding this highlight two things.


And see how it's creating another depths to what I've got now I don't have to do it to every little Rose.


You can come back in and have a little yellow on there in white and come back with a little yellow and white too.

It doesn't have to be pure white.

You can change that up.

Still doing the little strokes on the corner curving around.

If I were pressed too hard I might lose some of my delicacy.

But you did.

You are for somebody that doesn't pay you know a lot about it now.

I I can I could.

Backseat paid like nobody like nobody's business.

You know I really only have like one thing after this to do.

I said sign it.

Yep I know.

I've been watching your little hair thing.

You're so good.

I watched my tape.

So when you're in a place you just go on your roses to when you're happy.

If you're finding yourself Here's an experience to wait.

If you're fighting yourself you know my son some creative people have this where there's a lot of stuff you might not be aware that is in there percolating until you start creating and you're feeling that kind of anxiety and frustration.

Take a breath take a beat let the paint dry acrylic paint can you can paint over anything once it's dry.

And sometimes just that little relax that little give it a minute and then come back to the cabbage rose is all you need to find your way through.

Also find good supportive friends that will point out a couple of things in your painting that you mailed because it can take ten paintings for it to all start to come back to you.

Everybody has imagination.

You find yours and you can join us and find out more information at the top.

We got nice people good place to have a first painting.

People are really cool about it.

There you go.

I'm going to come here and add a little bit of the flowers when you get up there where you are.

Horns I going.

I'm just doing the same thing I had before little cameras going up there.

I can just see I have the conifer known in the white.

Not particularly mixed on my brush.

All Missy all relax.

And I'm a Dabbs.

Not stress over it.

She's not stressed.

She came is party knows she's fierce to unify.

He's going to charge this woman.

So he's a good bubble blower.

Now I'm going to add a little pink to my signature.

I like to do my signatures where they seem like they're part of the painting.

They're part of the composition for a lot of thought in signature.

Campus just can't quite see where you have a nice little happy or it is happy signature your signature.

Pop art Girl with a Hat Fashion Acrylic Painting tutorial for Beginners

hey everybody I am Cinnamon Cooney The Art Sherpa and i want to invite you to come paint with me today this fabulous paintings shall call even if you don't draw even if you haven't painted a while this is a great painting for you to start with I've gotta know draw option lots of materials you can change out the colors there's so much to offer you in this piece so let's check out the materials and get started right now so glad you decided to do this pain let's take a quick look at the materials that will be using today i have here a nine by twelve canvas board canvas board is then rigid and pre-coated and ready to paint they're very inexpensive and you can pretty much find those anywhere that sells art or craft supplies look at our paint right here i have the very simple colors of Mars black, phthalo Blue Cadmium red medium , yellow ochre in the center here actually this is not white this is acrylic glazing liquid i use that because it's very hot and dry in my studio and this slows down the drying time of my paint and allows it to flow smoothly but remember acrylic paint works with water and that does many of the similar functions if you're better conditions than I am for painting and then of course i have this titanium white i'm going to show you how to use the traceable to get the image on the canvas with the no draw option you can of course free hand this in our trace this in both are perfectly acceptable and neither is cheating an art let me show you how to get the traceable on the canvas remember you can find information about the materials and get the free traceable at the archer p dot com let's start the traceable so i have here my image that I want to transfer my canvas and i'm going to make very inexpensive DIY transfer paper i'm going to just take a graphite pencil and rub back and forth along the lines that i want to transfer to my canvas when that's done I'm gonna take low-tech tape come over to my canvas and attach the image i usually like to tape in a couple places and I like low tack tape because it generally won't care my transfer paper so I can use it again if I want to i'm going over my lines with a hard colored pencil so I can see where I've already drawn i wouldn't use a felt-tip pen because it wouldn't be hard enough to make a nice transfer to trace over every line and then i have my image remove the paper and your image should be faintly on your canvas for you to easily be able to follow let's get our paint get started I'm going to get this number 8 bright this is a nice synthetic bright has a good sharp edge a bright brush is a little shorter than a flat and a little spring year so it makes easier work of a heavy body paint by being synthetic it doesn't overload with water so that when i'm priming the brush with a little bit of moisture and dragging off the extra off the edge it doesn't bring too much over to my acrylic paint acrylic paint can totally be thinned with water or medium like i'm using here either works very very well i'm going to come just paint the outside edge my canvas with my cadmium red just following along on the edge of my brush you can see i use the edge of my brush to get a nice line edges of the transfer that I made if you like to freehand things go ahead and freehand your image in but don't worry about it if you're just not a place where you're drawing yet drawing can be learned in time there's lots of artists that don't draw going to get a little more moisture on my brush and show you how i can just pull out a small amount of water to thin my paint and improve the flow when I'm painting on the canvas I want all of the white to disappear under the paint so I don't want to have a bunch of strokes that look like that that means I either don't have enough paint on my brush or the paint is too dry sometimes we want that when we're doing something called dry brushing in this case we want to pop art feel so we're going to make nice fields of color and again you can do this in you don't have to do this red you could do this in blue you could do this in green any color that you like come over and add some red right here using edge of my bristles to get a crisp line following along my transfer well had a boo i'm going to show you how fix that that can happen when you're painting you can have a mistake I'm dipping my brush a little bit of water to thin it and all you've got to do is allow that to dry and when i go over it with another color paint it will disappear so never ever ever ever when your new painting get panicked when you make a mistake you gotta remember that acrylic paint is one of the most forgiving mediums and that's one of the things I really like about it so I want a nice solid build a color I'm going to get a smaller brush right now this here is the number one bright you get a number too bright another brush that you could use here is a small detail round what you want is a small brush to help you fill in the lips i'm going to get this brush just a little bit wet and into my red paint and I'm gonna take a smidge not very much of my black into my red here just a smidge I'm darkening my red paint you can see it's like almost a brick shade and while that's a very bright shade in this darkness of the paint is going to allow my rip my red lips to feel very red and that's what I'm going to want to come just paint this dark color on my lips first there we go a little bit for the lower lip definitely want this all covered up now if you're painting student paint you may find that you need two coats of acrylic paint to get good call coverage in other words it look like an ice field of color over the canvas don't feel weird about about it's not you it's just the way that paint is that's how they save money on those paints and lower the cost is to reduce the amount of pigment that has for the quality of pigment alright so once you have those painting and nicely rinse out your brush going to want to make sure all the right out of my brush I'm going to need to change brushes entirely and i'm going to take a little blue over to my black eye in town during the block with this blue and this gives a really beautiful effect to the color I'm going to come right here along the Hat just paint this whole hat in with this color i might need to lift up my easel so i can get under it nicely it can happen I like to lock in my easel but sometimes I've got to move it to get an angle once I do that I think no problem always move or change things to make yourself comfortable going on a little blue pulling in a little black again I'm using the glazing medium because the heat in my studio dries out my paint incredibly fast very dry here hot and dry will dry out acrylic paint cold and dry actually if you just have an air conditioner running by your acrylic paint it can dry it out real fast on you and cause it to creep up your brush and do all kinds of unexpected things so at the very least what can be nice to have you been a missing bottle by your paints you can give it a light mist not a big squirt just the lateness is super helpful little blue to the black you should be seeing a little blue tone to your ship oh I'm curving my brush strokes curving along the hat to kind of give it that shape see that there in the next one that I'm going to do is I'm going to put in your hair now her hair i'm not going to add as much blue to it can be on the brush and I want to be just a little darker than the Hat almost imperceptibly so but still just a little bit very very carefully going to follow around my nice clean lines paint that in if you find its getting up your brush and not being responsive one thing that you can do is what I call offloading you wipe it off your brush you can even wipe your brush off with a towel come back and reload to the tip where you have more control see that tracing around the ear buds in my brush and you can also see how just the subtle difference between the black paint and the black and blue paint make a bit of a line and I like that I like that a lot you if you're feeling stressed or anxious be sure and take a deep breath huh remember this is just start it is fun no need to be stressed out there we go meaning that all in again if it's looking street you may need to let it dry go back with a second coat that's it little little blue get on my brush but not too much because again want this hair to be much darker come along and trace here this is my number eight right could use a six you could use a four whatever works for the job it makes you feel comfortable and gives you a sense of control now i'm going to get back into my blue a little bit mixing that up trying to blow up that black offload my brush it's not too clumped up and get a little white out on the edge here you see how that's just on the edge and im gonna do anything i'm going to come along the hat and I'm going to make a little line nice just on the edge of the brush following my headline just a little blue gray line that worked out pretty well here we go offload my brush and rinse out i'm going to get my first very small braids out we'll go back and get some just black paint use water or your liquid glazing medium to make sure that it's flowing nicely if it's starting to drier skin and come over here to the little bit of nostrils very carefully paint in the side corners they're going to be a little wider and taper down and then a little wider and paper in I'm going to bring down a little line and a line then you can come underneath her lips paint inside Oh what's happened is my hand rested in the black paint and i'll show you how to fix that you're going to fix to booze that'll happen sometimes your hand will drag across wetpaint I'm very carefully tracing the outline for her lips a little bit lot and I'm going to paint a lot of this out when i come back with her gray skin tone I'll be glad that I have that they're a little bit i'm gonna make a little line curving up into the lip that's all I'm going to do there now this needs to dry a bit so I can paint it on the red and this is dry so I'm gonna be able to paint it out when i come back with the skin color but first I'm going to get a little more black on my brush and I'm going to just go ahead and take advantage make sure that i trace out her jaw and a little bit like fashion art it's a lot of fun and it's easier to do the people now it's a beautiful clean design aesthetic this is one of those pieces it would look good big or small so I'm just tracing those outer lines with my very fine brush if you find you're having trouble getting thin lines you can practice with your brush on a scratch piece of paper until you feel very confident with it and then put on the campus never feel like if you're not ready or not sure you can't just take this over some computer paper and practice out of stroke alright I'm going to grab my black and my blue making sure that I've got that blue-gray color that i had earlier and then i'm going to go into my white one of the tricks and I'm gonna maybe even need to do is wipe off my brush but I want to rinse it so I want a very light color need a little black in there needs to be a great with just a blue cast so it can take a minute to find it needs to be light just start painting the skin and I'm very carefully going to come along under the jawline tracing along my black line and you're going to find that it actually helps refine that line quite a lot when painting out this outer neck right here to about the halfway point here with this mid tone grey is very very light but still it's going to be our darkest gray on our girl now going to kind of wipe off my extra paint and get just into my white you're going to notice the pigment on my brush is still tinting and toning it get either water or glazing medium whatever you need to blend you're just going to come here now my brush stroke across keeping my black line and I painted in and if you paint your black line just remember when this is all dry you can go back and put it back into never ever feel bad if you have something happen you need to do that and all those booze or just disappearing i'm going to get even more white paint come right here that red just disappeared where it's dry and just paint over it you seem to know that stuff happens during the painting process you can do a lot to control it you can use tapes and first gets all kinds of things but it just happens try not to worry about it try to stay centered in that this is fun and relaxing and that you can do this just blending these two areas together and now i'm going to get a little more white still haven't rinse my brush and I'm going to come paint in the whole face very carefully I'm putting back my tracing lines if any of them disappeared using the edge of my brush now this could feel really hard if my brush did have a nice firm edge or was very fluffy so it is important to have a good brush around my lips I may need to switch to a smaller brush because painting with too big of a brush for the space can create a lot of problems so i'm going to know in a minute I have to switch down just want to make sure we're covering the canvas and if i have a much lighter mixture here okay to come at the neck right here and just continue to keep that it slightly lighter value like what you have up in the face yeah a little bit of the shoulder too i'm going to rinse out right about now can be good time to get new water if you need it i'll show you how I'm going to take out this red boo is it again stakes are not a big deal in art they happen the whole point of art is just create a painting and spend a little time creatively with yourself and getting a chance to listen to your imagination and the way you like to thank so remember that's your bigger goal not getting the most perfect line in the world though you can work on those skills to is your painting alright let's paint this in look at this just paints right out this is what I love about acrylic painting you can have mistakes you can have challenging moments that you don't have to worry about those just rinsed out my brush really really well i'm gonna get some more of that skin color that i had over here to the side of my palette and I'm going to just paint under the nose and around the nose one thing I want to make sure a nice curve here good paint around if you paint your lines by this point hopefully you know that's not that big of a deal you can always just put them back in and I would even suggest getting a little of your blue and black darker i'm going to use my glazing medium you could just use paint that was very thin out and just make sure to make a little darker spot right there just a little bit not a lot if you go to dark paint it with let it dry paint with a lighter paint you're just trying to say that there was a little shadow happening under the nose you need to put your lines back your black lines I just wipe my brush reload it just on the edge here i'm gonna come put back any details that I've lost during my painting process only the ones that I really really wanted to see one little spot up here just want to keep this sort of like my traceable so any little spots that are bothering me i'm going to go ahead and take this time to fix those you should look around your canvas and just can't commit to repair any booze you're not like go back through and reinforce any lines i put in that can be really nice there we go inside your brush we're still allowing this to dry because we're going to do a glaze here before we do the roses I'm gonna get my just red paint just the pure red remember you can use any combo colors that you want here CSI move it and you can use a different red than what i'm showing you notice how i am stroking not all the lip out just a couple little dashes like I got 12 and I curve back to the right over here curving curving just little dashes and then when I'm on this side lip I'm curving this way following the shape of the lip on this bottom try to imagine this is like an inflated tire and you're going to want to just curve these lines to follow the shape of the lip this red right into the mouth and I'm letting a lot of that shadow still show that's what's gonna give those lips shape now a good time to check and see that your painting is dry others right with a hairdryer or just allow it to dry and go do something in your home you needed to do and come back you'll know that your acrylic paint is dry when it's completely like not coming up like when it's just not tacky to the touch and smooth and also sometimes it will not be shiny though they put shiny additives and paint and that's not always as good of an indicator as it can be I'm gonna dry my with the hair dryer now I'm going to cast a shadow right here under the Hat and that's going to help create that sense of dramatic light and moment in the painting i'm going to use Michael days but i'm also going to tell you that you can use a very dry brush and I'm going to kind of show you both methods first i'm going to show you the dry brush method just in case you don't have any glaze where you're at i'm going to pull out a little my black and a little of my blue and i'm going to make sure that the paint is quite thin can you see how it's just very thin on my brush when paint is thin and drown your brush it can be very transparent and this is one way of creating a light shadow I'm coming very carefully on the edge of my brush under the Hat the shadow is a little blue that is tone with black and I'm going to make sure that it's wider here at the ear and here they got like a sliver or triangle so all that's happening here is that I haven't got a lot of paint on my brush to have a lot of paint on my brush it would just be painting out my work wouldn't feel like a shadow it was being cast under the brim morning that there if you have a little thing there you just go back into your skin tongue an amazing how early pain just totally works put your back okay she's just back to herself now here's the fun part well they're all really fun parts but this is one of my favorite parts which is the highlights on the lips again my small brush I'm going to get just my white paint and i'm going to do similar curve dashes on this side I'm going to curve almost like it's a sea make a little highlight like those reflections going to make a stronger one right here follow up and then just add a couple more show their her lipstick is very very shiny alright and some down here on the bottom lip right am kind of connecting them but not really into making sure that they come out if you / highlight all you gotta do is wipe your brush and let it dry and go back with your red you can see you can very easily take any of that work out some of my black hair i'm gonna go ahead and put that back in there you go again just making little adjustments while all of this is drying i'm going to use this cool cool tool the saga' borough pouncer they're just a round kind of stamping tool you can make a circle with the brush or use a stamp of something that's around i'm just going to use this and I'm going to take a little of my yellow and you can see runs around and quite a lot of my white and come to the ear and just do twists and that's going to make a nice pearl we want to rinse those out i get those right in water and I get all that acrylic paint out so I can use them again don't let the acrylic paint dry on these these are really inexpensive but again you could just make a little circle with your brush sure all the Reds out i'm going to come back and a little shine or highlight your hair a little black little blue very dry brush is not on a moisture on my brush want this to be a little more gray than blue might come with this dry brush just on the outer edge of her hair with as light as a butterfly pressure going to just very lightly stroked a highlight just on that outer edge and then here do the same thing kind of curving that and then another little curve here right here yeah that's just a little bit they're not too much now i'm going to make these sort of like fun messy roses that I want to make and I'm going to do them in this particular painting in yellow ochre and white because I like the combination of this bright red and this sort of blue tone and the black-and-white to all together it's very graphic but you of course can customize this anyway you want to at home all right first I'm going to get a little of this yellow ochre on my brush you can do this on a smaller brush I wouldn't do it on a bigger brush and I pulled a little white I'm not really mixing see how it's kind of like all Marbley going to move my top here otherwise i won't be able to get close enough to the edge of my canvas and i'm going to first make my first big focal one that's right here and I do that is I make on the corner of my brush curve little strokes and you see these curve little strokes I lay them out a little bit like bricks how friend of mine likes to describe it i'm going to get a little more yellow make a little small one right here maybe a little friend I'm just take us kind of like a little sea with the corner and come around hug around wrapping around and I think we need another little small one right here that was quite yellow and then I'm going to add I'm gonna go on the corner of my brush and press down and kind of curve is down curve just trying to make a little kind of leaf shape and another one right there that's nice to up here maybe and I 1 curve here just fun stuff make yourself happy that's really the goal and the last little thing that you might want to do this for signing just take a little of your black paint with a detail brush kind of go around your pearl so that it pops a little bit if you're not at all happy with your roses you can keep going back in with light paint and dark paint until you find a very expressive rose shape that makes you happy i have lots of videos about these types of roses you can kind of explore all the ways that you can do that let's give the pivot painting a signature pat ourselves on the back for being really awesome for doing this painting today and wrap this guy up i think i'm going to get white paint for my signature it'll pop right against the Red I'm kind of being keeping with the piece they come here and sign along the top of the shoulder that's what makes me happy all right you made art today and it was easy and it was fun and maybe you started this out being able to draw maybe you didn't but I hope you're walking away from this painting thinking I can totally paint remember to be kind yourselves be kind to each other and keeping creative because imagination matters i want to see you at the easel really soon bye bye.

How to Sell a House : Decorating a Living Room & Dining Room

Hi my name is Frank Clarke with Oliver andAssociates Realty in London Ontario on behalf of expertvillage.


I want to discuss withyou a few things about your living room and dining room.

In this situation we have a openconcept living room and dining room now this is a model home and you have to recognizethat there is not a lot of thing here but if this was your home you may have a tablewith a leaf it that makes it impossible to walk around.

Take that leaf out.

You may wantto set your table put place mats on the table, put nice cloth napkins, and some wine glassesjust stage the table beautifully like you are going to sit down to a nice meal thatwould make a great impression.

Now I want to point out the china cabinet here.

We havea empty china cabinet that is because it is a model home of course but that is not a badplace for you to start.

Empty out your curio cabinets empty out your china cabinets packup everything that is incredibly valuable and dust everything and make it clean.

Putonly the bare minimum dishes back in so presentation is perfect.

Again I will mention you are movingso pack things up so that your house presents itself the best it could possibly would be.

Artist Study · 30 Ways to Fill a Sketchbook

Hey you lot, how is everyone.

For today’s sketchbook page I’m gonnabe doing a little study of the work by Georgia O’Keefe.

I actually did something like this for oneof my either GCSE or A-Level sketchbooks at school, we were looking at natural forms inart and Georgia O’Keefe is like the ultimate for that.

She also just seems like she was an amazingwoman, I’d recommend reading up on her if you haven’t heard of her.

I actually spelled her name wrong at the tophere but don’t worry I corrected that by the end.

You would never know.

And then just as a little extra on the page,I thought I’d do a little sketch of her before looking in to some of her work.

We’ll go through this bit quite quicklysince it’s not that relevant to the topic of todays video.

But I still thought you’d like to see theprocess of the drawing and get an idea of how to snazz up a more sort of serious, orinformational page in your sketchbook.

So like Miss O’Keefe, I decided I’d workin watercolour today.

I’m working on a really light rough sketch I did in yellow pencil,just to get the composition vaguely in place.

I didn’t realise how long it had been sinceI last used watercolour but wow, I really struggled! I really couldn’t get into my stride withit, I don’t know how it used to be like my main art medium of choice.

I started out by repainting the lily fromher work titled… I didn’t write it down actually but it’ssomething like Lily Turned Away.

This is a really great practice, recreatingthe work of one of the master’s, it helps to break things down, get a better understandingof their process.

Now it’s important when you’re doing astudy of an artist like this and their work, that you don’t just copy.

It’s called a study for a reason.

So definitely put a bit of time into readingup on the artist, their process, what tools they use and how and WHY.

You learn a little bit by straight copying,but sooo much more by actually studying.

So this next piece is called ‘Light Iris’.

I liked this one because it had more of anabstract feel to it.

Also it has more of that cropped close-uplook that Georgia O’Keefe is famous for.

I went in with coloured pencil towards theend of this one to just sharpen things up, add depth where it needed it and little detailsand things that I just couldn’t figure out with the watercolour.


it was fun playing with the coloursand gradients and blending.

Yeah I dunno, it took me way longer than Ithought it would just cos I really couldn’t remember the ins and outs of watercolour.

Which is partly why I switched to gouachefor the last painting, obviously a medium I’m a lot more comfortable with but alsoI think it suited the painting.

The original is called ‘Leaves of a Plant’at the end I got mixed up and wrote that it was called ‘Oriental Poppies’, but yeahits a lot more bold in colour and opaque, I know Georgia O’Keefe sometimes used oilinstead of watercolour, I’m not sure if she did for this one, but I though gouachewould be a good substitute regardless to get across the brightness and colourfulness ofit.

Straight from the beginning I knew this wouldbe my favourite study.

The original painting itself is gorgeous,I love the colours, and just honestly not using watercolour made me feel so much morein control.

Even though I am happy with the outcome ofthe other two paintings.

This one felt a little bit more me.

A little bit more like something I would do.

And studies like this help you trial and errorthings that you otherwise might not have tried and maybe discover things you want to incorporateinto your own work.

Its also a great way to learn about you knowthe most fundamental names in art, in a fun way and in a way thats gonna give a littlepanache to your sketchbook.

Anyway I just finished up by sticking thatlast one in with pritt stick and then I used a black washi tape to make little labels forthe two main paintings.

I also wrote out a little quote that she supposedlysaid, I know there are a lot of fake quotes floating around the internet so you neverknow, but I liked it anyway.

It’s basically about being put down as thebest woman painter but she sees herself as one of the best painters full stop.

And that’s about it! I hope you all enjoyed today’s video.

If you’re struggling to get something downin your sketchbook I think this is a great option.

If you have a go I’d love to know what artistyou do it on.

But yeah til next time guys.
