In this class, you will learn how to use your watercolour palette to create a beautiful painting of a hot air balloon. You will have the option to add more elements to your artwork if you wish, or you can stop where you are content before the optional stages 7 and 8. You’ll learn how to build confidence with your materials, handle your brush, and use the colours and the water to your advantage. Before any of the painting, you’ll discover an easy method to make sure your drawing is accurate and not at all complicated to achieve. Just make sure you use tools that can help you!
What You’ll Do
Follow the video tutorials to learn how to use your paint palette to create this amazing artwork. Remember that you don’t have to choose the same colours, or even choose the same design. This class will give you skills that you can apply to your own artwork and make it your own if and when you wish. Perhaps you want to try this technique along with the artist and then try another version with your own modifications.
The Stages In A Nutshell
Equipment. Make sure you have everything you need to get started. China will tell you why these are important and alternatives you can use too.
Outline. Make life easy for yourself and spend some time on the outline. Once this is done, the rest of the work is easy, and you can mindfully zone out knowing your painting is in proportion.
1st Panels and 2nd. Alternate your panels in the painting so you make sure the colours don’t bleed into one another. Here you will learn how to create texture with your paint and clean water. Allow time to dry from the first layer of panels to the second, so the colours don’t blend in with each other. Feel free to choose whatever colours you want!
Basket. Whilst the panels dry, paint the other features in the same method.
Depth. Once your balloon is dry, you will learn how to add another layer with gradients and a wash to show that the balloon is curved. This trick is really cool!
Background (optional). If you want to add a sky to your balloon, now is the time to do it. We will show you have to add a gradient to your piece to make it look really cool.
Dark Outline (optional). Sometimes artwork looks really nice with a dark outline, and we agreed it would on here. If you don’t have a fine liner, use a biro and make your artwork pop.
We can’t wait to see what you create! Good luck!
