Flat brush Painting- Eye study ll Experiment #3


Hi! ^^ Today’s video is gonna be yet another experimental one. this time I’m exploring flat brush
painting technique and style. I’ve seen a lot of great inspiring artists who are really amazing
at it, and I’ve always wanted to try it. So here I am. So these sketches are like my learning point of this style, it was my first time trying it out and recorded them for you guys and i think i did an okay job it being my first time. I got a lot to refine and I’m sure with more practice, it could be done. I did multiple studies
of eyes and the last one is half of a portrait, and I could see myself slightly improving at it
as I kept painting. The first thing that attracted me in this style, is the texture and the brush strokes that
were clearly visible. It had that incomplete and messy vibe to it and I am a fan of both those vibes when it comes to art. My sketches are usually sure messy and rough, so I took a liking to it almost immediately. I used limited colors, only about 5-7 It being prussian blue, crimson, scarlett, portrait pink, light blue and white. These are the main colors that I used I limited myself from using more and a wide range of colors so that I could use the WARM-COLORS-ADVANCE and COOL-COLORS-RECEDE concept. As you know it’s an illusion created by our eyes as the adjust when both warm and cool colors are placed next to each other. The warm colors have longer wavelengths than the cool colors which makes it seem like the warm colors are advancing and the cool colors are receding, which helps us to use them in place of highlights and shadows respectively. I was really careful when i was painting. I took my time to study the reference image and check for the places that are bright, brighter and brightest and and the parts that are dark, darker and darkest. This exercise really helps you to view highlight, shadow midtones of both in any given reference image. Be it a black and white or a color image. you alter that according to the colors that you’re gonna use. It is a great exercise to train your eyes to see them as highlights, shadows and as midtones. It is a great exercise to train your eyes to see them as highlights, shadows and as midtones. At one point I was skeptical about which color to use for the iris of the eyes. And I tried using different colors as I kept doing different paintings. And I think my favorite is the third eye, it looks the best out of the rest. And lemme know in the comments which one you like. So thank you so much for watching this video. I’m going through a phase where I’m being constantly inspired by other artists’ styles and techniques and I’m just trying my hand at them and blending my signature style into it as well. I’ve also tried this same technique digitally, and I’ve also tried my hand at the single line drawing, So if you wanna see either of those head on over to my Instagram. And if you see either of those on YouTube, give this video a like and lemme know in the comments below, and I would love to do it. Lemme know if you guys want a step-by-step tutorial of this technique. Check out my Instagram to see more of my previous and future experiments. I’ve given all the links in the description below.
