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.

The Key of looking 9 – Vermeer (Subtiles English & Deutsch)

So that the central figure or the model, if you want so of one of the most beautiful painting in the world.

why say so, I think I say that every week, I know, but still named one of the world's most beautiful oeuvre which is this atelier of the painter Jan Vermeer today conversed in the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna And as we had the habit, this last week it's frustrating in detail here the entier painting And we see, one changes completely or almost completely the way of looking at it actually, normally we talk about other things first But this time I might start, not by talking about the esthetic, but about the questions and enigmas, which arise because, if we take this work of Vermeer from just like a few minutes ago, so that we can put this painter's atelier in a context We realize that the question and question marks concerning this alien painting are are likely to be solved in advance so lets start with the questions first So you know that this is one of Vermeers most marvelous paintings of course and also one of his biggest, with a hight of 1.

30 m (51 in) a format,a ctually which he used just a little during the beginning his career just to abandon it completely to Privilege the format, which almost never surpasses the high of 50 cm so a very confidential painting so here so here a return, on can not say that, but to the monumentality so here a return to a painting of the grand dimension Like always it's a theme without a theme what do I want to say by that? so, actually the canvas is a interior scene as Vermeer painted throughout his whole career with a certain amount of people.

here two like Vermeer paints it a lot during his career those two people are connected by one can say so a connection (link) of the silence which means a space in total silence from one person to the other so it's simply, I say so, a play of light and space, which separates them and at the same time joins them with each other and which creates slowly this affective rapport, extremely focused extremely particular with Vermeer's oeuvre in general so, that's this painting with a theme without a theme, with which I would like to talk about more and now I ll go from person to person actually since this painting is known, and believe me that's a while ago one asked oneself what is this painting really representing who are the people in the painting? What, what are the curiosities of the iconography? and you know what? a number of this questions are extremely interesting First of all, the person of the painter quite individual most of the critics, since the 19 century, see in him Vermeer , himself.

Vermeer's autoportrait I want just to remark that Vermeer did everything to plan the total ambiguity one sees nothing so one recognize the painter or a painter which then would solve which painter is presented one does not even see his palette or the colors or said in other word, the painting or the way he put his person, is in a sort of a form almost emblematic to picture the painter.

so why is there not a Vermeer? at this precise moment it would be his only autoportrait but it's a more frustrating autoportrait because after all, despite the hair and a beret, one sees nothing and then a strange fact, which was pointed out by several critics Vermeer's costume is absolutely not a costume one wore in Holland in the years of 1660/65 it's a very old costume one wore 150 years before and which is know as a costume ''à la bourginoine'' which was very fashionable in Holland but in the years of 1530 there a strangeness if it is Vermeer, why does he report his image 150 years before? so, a curious anachronism second thing, concerning the same painter he is painting right now, that's a evidence But I think you see that the painting is really The canvas is white, not to mention that the Laurel Wreath, which is painted with big brush traits in blue and even the same blue, observe, which on finds on the model.

Only Strangeness, Why does this painter, maybe Vermeer use a maulstick/mahlstick, you see this here is called a mahlstick (black thing) to not put it's hand on a still fresh painting but a mahlstick is used by the painters of the academy at the end of their work and not at the very beginning there he can put his wrist on the painting as he wishes So why this strange mahlstick at the beginning of a painting, when there are just some brush lines? So already in the first portrait a lot of strangeness one can summarize that maybe an auto portrait by Vermeer, but in a suit, which is 150 years before his career It's a fact that he is painting, but in a strange manner but strange, because he uses an objet for the end of a work but he is at the beginning of a work, said in other words the mahlstick The second person, is a total question mark The person of the woman For the half of the critics it's Vermeer's wife, Catharina Vermeer for the other half, it's his eldest daughter, Gerta Vermeer until to this point you will say, it's not that interesting and I am completely okay with that.

just that the age of the woman is very young, I think you see that which allows a imposition if it is Madame Vermeer, it would be very close to their marriage in this moment the date must be taken before 1665 in the years of 1640 just that it is impossible that Vermeer had mastered the problem of the space and light at this moment, which is shown in this painting and shows his great maturity in this painting So we have proved, my dear Watson, it can only be his daughter, just that we know his daughter already, who doesn't represent this Dame at all So lets continue with this female figure, her costume is strange the blue leafs on her head it's this huge drapery around her on a white skirt and in this way, we dare to say she wears it wrong and a book this one can be called a trumpet but it's clearly not a young woman being taught so she represent someone so you take your favorite book of Iconologia and you know that since the 16 siecle, the great the manner of representing an emblem of a vertues muse is still And you discover that the one, who carries a book, in which the history is written, is the Muse in General est Rhodotte the one, who carries the trumpet is the Muse of history.

or said in other words, It's the Muse Clio So we have here the representation of Vermeer painting someone, maybe his wife, maybe his daughter in the form of Clio.

a further strangeness you realize maybe that the woman is neither looking at her book, nor the painter or even the spectator, but the nature more, which is in front of them And you realize very quickly that there is a big open booklet, and more difficult to identify, but if one knows it, it's easier; a plaster mask put there in reverso So there we have the hair, nose, the lips and the chin.

a plaster mask seen reverso So, also here the Iconography helps us.

Watercolor Painting of Girl

hey guys welcome to my channel today i'll be doing a drawing this pen and watercolor of an anime ish girl I don't really know if I would call this video a tutorial but I guess ill be explaining what i do as I go along so the first step is trying to find a pencil no matter how many pencils buy I always seem to lose them i need them the most such as right now I never realized how many pens i had Wait I spy another writing implement on the floor could it be let me zoom in with my camera lens nope it's only a colored pencil and i have a pencil step two is to draw logical shapes until it looks right make sure to make your lines really sketchy like this because it looks more professional and also because you can better approximate where everything is step three is to connect the shapes and add details and you can see how your drawing looks as a hoe I should probably add music but i'm too lazy to find it so we'll just have to sit in awkward silence random asmr in the middle of the video I cut so much out of this part because i kept messing up in the left eye and I don't know why not going to lie these hands look pretty creepy but whatever I'm pretty bad anatomy because I never practice it but so I can help you with proportions but to check your proportions you can text your friend a picture of your sketch and ask if it looks ok okay maybe that won't work against i guess i'll just have to believe in myself that might actually the hardest part of this drawing so I didn't that realize the camera wasn't filming but step four is to just add water color i'm just doing everything in blocks of aesthetic colors really bad asmr or maybe it's just annoying so before moving on to the next of make sure your paint is dry very exciting process of watching paint dry so my paint is dry and now i'm just adding other colors because the colors are lonely and kinda wanna mix step 6 well I like to darken and outlines some areas in black pen since i had so many pens earlier i'm sure i'll have no problem finding the correct pen now where are the pens when i need them so now I'm just adding pen so that the outlines are more visible yeah after that i'm basically done honestly this expression was literally my face when i saw my final grades for the semester i was really surprised not a good kind of surprised if you enjoyed this video don't forget to Like and subscribe bye.

ColourArte – Scrappy Cat by Sandee Setliff

Drop 3 different colors on top of the stencil Then use a disposable plastic card to smooth them out across the stencil Don't waste any paint, spread out the excess onto an art journal page to use for another time.

Even muddy color are gorgeous with Vivid Metallics! Continue removing excess paint Add more paint if needed to fill in any uncovered spots Let dry completely before the next step Paint in the background The Shimmering H2O's have been soaking in water for about 10 minutes Completely cover the cat area with the H2O's, the Vivid Metallics will act as a resist You can see how the H2O's repeal away from the metallic paint and "puddle" on top Now use a dry brush to wick away the H2O's and wipe on a dry paper towel between each swipe to keep your brush dry Tip for outlining: Always pull your brush towards you Vivid Metallics are excellent for outlining since they are a fluid acrylic paint.

Add splatters of Shimmering H2O's to the background.

Let them dry and set up and then add colors on top.

Outline as desired.

Create "grounding" by adding lines so the cat isn't "floating in space" Next, add whimsy to the straight lines.

In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
