Here you will learn in a step by step fashion how to paint aspen trees on to canvas using acrylic paint. Artist Pearce begins the painting by applying a few large horizontal blends with a 4 inch brush to set the mood for the upcoming trees. Then using a natural sponge she dabs reds, oranges and yellows on the upper and lower tiers of the painting to create the illusion of leaves and florals. It is then time for the trees using a selection of different sized brushes. Follow the video and within hours you will have something really quite soothing to hang on your wall. This video is ideal for the beginner artist.
Brazilian watercolor artist Fabio Cembranelli showcases his fantastic watercolor skills in this extremely elegant floral composition. His style is full of flow and very loose which makes for a beautifully organic rendition of the flowers he’s suggestively painting. The palette is an explosion of reds and pinks with a rich mixture of greens to represent the background foliage. He attacks the painting with a large flat brush and uses block colors rather than intricate detailing to create a very personal style. A must watch if you like seeing true talent in a watercolor artist.
Artist Itir Orcun gets her oil paints and her canvas to offer a clear and concise video tutorial on exactly how to best achieve a realistic marbling technique. The result is an explosion of reds and greens in a formation of various sizes of circles. Once she is happy with the way her oil paints have formed as a marbling she then works into it direct with a paint brush to gain extra detailing. A very nice video with a technique where no result can be duplicated. Get your canvas and have fun.
Now this isn’t something I am all too familiar with. However from the beginning of the video you don’t think much is going to happen after the graffiti artist talks to the camera whilst drinking wine. You then come to realise that he draws straight onto the canvas with no pencil guide work already in place and he is quite literally awesome. If this isn’t raw talent then I’m not sure what is. Heavy pen, cryptic shapes and some reds and pinks make this a ‘tag’ I think most people would be extremely proud of. Great video.
Professional watercolor artist Trevor Waugh provides a nice video art tutorial here where he paints in a loose style a pretty Venetian landscape/seascape. Using only one brush the quick painting only takes a very small amount of time but it holds a lot of the principles necessary to create a nice mono chrome effect. The style of the painting is very Impressionistic and the detailing is more suggestive rather than exact. Whether you are a professional or an amateur there is lots to be learned in this short watercolor demonstration.
