Let’s Paint – Donna Dewberry FolkArt One Stoke – March – Daffodil


Hi I’m Donna Dewberry and I’m the original
creator of the One Stroke painting technique. I’m right here in the Plaid studio
and I’m thrilled to be with you again. We’re going to continue our series
of a flower of the month and this is March. So we’re going to do a daffodil. I’m
I’m using a wonderful learn to paint products from Plaid FolkArt One Stroke is all
about teaching you a quick and easy way to paint and we’re using FolkA
paint which pays on every surface you can imagine. And I am so excited to
start painting our Daffodil with you today. OK. Now that we’re ready to start our
March flower which is the daffodil I love the idea of putting it and a
watering can and I love yellow and blue. I like the blue and white in effect
and then throw in some yellow and it made it really pretty. So I just want
you to see the flowers and make them the focus point after you see the watering can.
So I want you to look at the background. I wanted some light
color where the blue was and then I needed a little bit darker for the
flower edges. So the White shows now that you had to think about that when
you’re laying out your design At first you might be just copying other
things that you see that you really love. And if you want to start doing it on
your own and say I want a different background then it would be nice to
know some of the little hints I can share with you. So I’m going to take
my painter’s sponge here that we’ve use for backgrounds and I take my fingers
and I wet it a little bit and I’m going to squeeze out my FolkArt
Multi-Surface remember that’s the wonderful part of this is the multi surface paint
and this is citrus green and I’m going to just put a little bit of white
out and sometimes I’ll put a medium. Also this is our wicker white and a
little bit of medium just in case I need it. OK medium for you guys is
the fluff that’s inside paint and we usually do a lot of stroking with this.
So it’s floating medium FolkArt Floating Medium for Using it instead of water when we’re
loading our brushes and all. OK. So we’ve got this damp we’re going
to pick up white and then we’re going to get a little bit of green
to start with. OK. The citrus green and I’m going to turn mine upside down
but it doesn’t matter at this point I’m going to start at the bottom being
up here and I’m going to go back and forth they get it really light.
So when I pick out more white really pale for the bottom and the edges. OK.
This is a wrap. Twelve by twelve canvas. So that’s just very faint. And that’s
your bottom. So then I can turn it around. All right. That’s where my watering
cans going to go. And then at the top I’m going to still pick up a white
and a little green and I can’t get a teeny bit a medium if I think that
it’s going to get if it starts getting too heavy. Because I really want to faint.
All right. Not to faint because remember what the White this show.
All right. So because there’s fibers in the canvas I like to make circles to make it get
and all that textured fiber there and then I’m going to then come back
and tap this. I won’t to it down. So it doesn’t bounce
around but I don’t want that line. So I want you to push down and the
rest of the sponge will blend. All right. So just work it in. All right.
And sometimes I like to get a little bit more green. And there’s some edging. So I’m getting
a lot there. OK. All right And make sure you do your edges is better
like I said to do on while you go. And if you’re doing this along with
me you can just go around those edges and get that all done. And remember how that’s important and
what’s nice about these we framed are is. But what’s nice about these
is that you don’t have to frame it. You can hanging on the wall just like that.
All right. So we’re going to put our painter’s sponge to the side here.
And then we’re ready to start our next step. Now I should like one
more time our next step is the watering can. So I’m going to take my five fingers
there and five fingers there because I kind of centered it and from the
very bottom I’m going to stretch because the bottom’s under here a little bit.
I’m gonna stretch my five fingers tight five fingers tight five fingers OK.
That should help you draw this out. OK. Now I this time sometimes I use chalk
but this with the light color what I want to do is just lightly pencil
it at please don’t pencil hard you know that’s why I’m always telling
and the drawing class don’t do it hard. All right. So I want to come down here
almost to the bottom and I want to do a half of a circle like you could
even go like this and do a little bit of a line for the base and we want
it to look round so it’s curved. OK and then you’re gonna have your
your ground right here where it’s sitting and that’s going to be there. But now
I wanna show you is five tight fingers here was the side of the watering can.
Five Five here. All right. And then I did five over
that little bit stretch and up here’s the top OK. And if you sketch it back
and forth like that you’ll get the shape we want. We want a little bit bigger.
All right. So then I’m going to kind of go from there. To there.
And the same thing here. Now you can be a little bit. This is where you’re
like Is this the same as this But it’s OK with this. You have to worry
about it too much. I can sketch it over a little bit more. And the good
thing is if you’re using a sponge or you can take your paint brush back
and forth on that you can erase that pencil a little bit. All right. So
So I at the top of this is always an oval. OK. And then we’re going to put the stems in.
So you’re not gonna see the backside but that’s good for you to see. All right.
And then I make these spouts all kinds of ways. So I cam down this
way straight down. Then you decide how teeny you want to spout I’m going
to make this one a little bit bigger. And then you come down so see that A little oval here and we don’t have
an eraser here. Yes we do. All right. There we go. This curves you’re gonna curve it in
to the watering can. And take out. There you go. So see that it goes into
the can. Now this is gonna have a little bit different shape than the
one I painted as a sample but that’s what I like is that everybody looks different.
It doesn’t have to look like mine and I’d like to even look
in gardening magazines and find a shape. I like big handle. And curve up here so.
Thank goodness I only have to do one side of those making them two
sides the same thing as where I run into trouble. OK. So there we go. All right.
So that’s ready. And I like the base coat that. And then after
we put the stems I go back and do a heavier coat right there. So So if this stems mess it up a little
bit I’m going to bring my Daffodil over I’ll share more with you in a
few minutes about that but let me tell you really quick did you know the daffodils
symbolizes unequal love So giving this flower to somebody expresses
deep love for them. And so I love knowing what the flowers mean and we’re
going to tell you what they mean on every worksheet. How cool is that. All right. So these
are gonna be strokes that you’re going to learn. And what I want to
do first before we jump onto the Strokes is I want to paint our base coat on
here and I’ve got my double loader and I am going to start putting some
colors in that so we’re ready All right I’m going to put a floating medium
in the middle. OK. So it doesn’t get all into our colors and then I’m
gonna use our cobalt blue OK Which is bright like the blue and white Blue
Willow type colors. All right And then I’m using Moon yellow. These are
all my multi surface favorite colors. And then I used a little bit of red
with the yellow to get a little blush color, peachy color where the the face of
the daffodil is OK. And we need white wicker white. Okay. So I’m gonna put
this in the double loader if I use white over here with the blue but I’m
doing solid blue and so I’m I’m gonna have these two we’re gonna work together
the yellow and apple red and then the White gonna work with our yellow
and I kind of tap this down. See how it spreads there for you. And then
you’re ready to double load in between and when we load these guys we’re going
to split the brush to pick up and I’ll show you that a little bit later
we’re gonna have some green in here but right now I am gonna go ahead and
do the green. So here’s citrus green. And sap green. All right. And so usually
I will do on a tall stem. I will do the Green first the leaves and the
stems but lots of times I use the flower to lay out my designs so I don’t
have to draw a pattern. All right. So first thing I’m gonna
do is wet this three quarter inch flat O ne Stroke brush and we’re gonna pick
up right on the edge of the puddle never go in the middle of the puddle
and pick up The cobalt. All right. Now I’m gonna
use this edge of the brush to go around and. Fill in these areas. Now people tend
to some of you would rather use a little eight or a little six rounds
of base coat your whole thing But I want you to see now this is what’s
tough is that as we’re putting that spout it gets bigger and bigger and bigger.
And it’s not because of the brushes because it’s trying to get
on that straight line. Is when we get larger and larger so it’s usually better
to try to come inside of that line and then work work your way. Out
Out to the edge. OK some to come here. Right here. I am gonna use a small
brush for the handle. And then I’m going to come right around here and make it.
it Rounded Up hair’s not gonna matter a whole lot.
We’re gonna base coat that again after the Green goes in. Now we’re
just gonna fill it in. Now if you do those edges nicely then the rest of
this is just filling it and you have to worry about it. And even though
I drew that in there you’re going to have to do it later again. And we want
a nice coat. So sometimes I do a light coat let it dry and then come
back and do another coat. But this is going to take a while to dry on
this which that’s why we’re doing it now. So I’m excited to see how. As you paint
that you put some different flowers together and create different bouquets
with our flowers of the month I’m excited that we get to start this process
together with this new launch of flowers each month. Flower of the month.
Or the One Stroke sounded fun to me so thank you for joining me. All right. So I’m going to wash this
brush out now I’m gonna get a smaller brush because this is something smaller
and harder to control. So I don’t use the smallest brush still I might
is an eight wet it laid on paper towel and pick up. So the reason we have floating medium
is because we don’t want to use water to paint. And mostly because it gets muddy.
When we blend. So I want to say my little fingers pulling me see
my little finger and I am pulling it on the chisel. This is a chisel. Now when I get to
a place like Right here I do. I don’t try to make the whole loop
because it looks like you did. And it’s a mess. So then I start right here
and turn half circle. And get it back into there. So there we go. Instead
Instead of trying to do the whole thing you come from the other side. Okay so we’re gonna put this to the
side so it dries a little bit That’s pretty heavy so it gives us plenty
of time to practice. We have our palette loaded. This is a double loader and that’s
what we have already to paint with. And I’m going to practice on this coated
teaching guys seeing and practice and wipe off. So what we want to do
is we want to have a folded paper towel. And it’s gonna be wet dampen so that
it’s your eraser. All right because we’re going to practice on this and
then we’ll go back to that. So I’m still using mostly at 12 on here. But
But when you turn around something this big on the full size more lifelike
Daffodil you could use this larger brush. OK. And then I practice these leaves over
here on this side also. So let’s turn it over and let’s pick up our colors.
So I used a darker color on the outside edge and lighter in the
middle just so it shows on air And that’s what I did there too. But are
most of them I’ve painted I put the White on the outside so I’m going between
these two colors. Moon yellow and Wicker white and I’m
going to come over here and work it in and I guess I could have worked it
in right there. I jumped. OK so I’m going to pick up some more color and
I’m splitting it here. So if it’s not at the edge I can move it over
and I’m grabbing it there and then I work it in. OK. And then we’re ready
to go. Now you can have it mostly all yellow and a little bit of white
OK now this is what we’re gonna do. We’re gonna come up up up up like this
to the tip. So we started on a chisel. And we slide up to the tip. And you
can make a leaf that way too. By the way I can turn it the other way. Or
Or what I can throw the other way and slide out OK. Or. I can slide up whatever
you feel comfortable slide up to the tip reverse your direction lay
down and slide down. OK so you have to practice that takes a little bit
of practice but it doesn’t look hard doesn’t it. And you just do it right
on my stroke. So what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna stroke on this little strip.
I do hear. That stroke there. So you can see if you’re blending is
there a good color for what we’re doing. All right. Even though I had the darker
yellow on here. On here I did have white for you to stroke there. So let’s
do it. One two three. So I want you to see with daffodils. You have
a pedal that’s on top. And then we’re going to do two over here. The second
one there. To the tip reverse direction. Push down and stand up. So we start
and each one on the chisel so we’re gonna slide to the tip reverse direction
slide push down and come. So we do three pedals and now we just see
the next three or four or five six that go right on top of that. All right.
So it is right here. We’re going to come right on top and then slide
back down. So when you’re coming up you reverse direction of the tip and
you lay it down and slide down So same thing here. All right. They get fresh paint and
the last one You can take it. Remember what I said
you can go to sides. And you’re one side this way and one side this way.
And you can wipe out that center if it gets too thick. OK so that’s going
to be the back base of this flower. All right. So I want to wipe that off as important
guys because this has like a sealer inside the paint and so it’s outdoor
and indoor is really wonderful as the multi surface paint. But what happens
is it adheres to many things like like on this teaching guide. So
So I don’t want to have to scrub that with a scrubber. Because then it won’t
wipe it easy. So I’d like you to keep a wet towel and wipe it off as
you go. All right. Now let me show you how fun this is. And there’s a cute little face on here
and I want you to see I already have yellow so I can go right between
these two and pick up the red OK with your apple red and Moon yellow
already on this brush. I want you to stroke. So you see if you’ve got a good blend
because you might want to go back and forth a little bit to get it blended
until the red comes over a little bit more. So we’re going to take. And
And here’s the base of your trumpet. All right. Then we’re going to come
right here and we’re gonna go all the way down with this. And I want you
to go slow at first. It’s always looks better when you move quicker on this
as you’re get more apple red as you’re stroking this. It usually is easier
and looks better when you go quicker. But at first I’d like you to go slow
so you can get that movement. All right. Now what I’m doing as I got fresh yellow
and see how I’m going to go real slow because this is going to be the
back all right. And then I can brush it into there. Now I need something
on front to make this really pop. So sometimes I float. We’re going to
float a little bit later sometimes I float was floating medium and sometimes
I float with paint so I don’t want that to be confusing but when
I’m going to do is I’m going to use the color that’s here. The apple red
and a little bit of yellow and a touch of white. All right more yellow and white more red.
It’s harder when the brush is a little bit smaller To get all your colors on there. OK
OK so now. So that’s the back of your trumpet. Now I’m going to come right here. And
And I’m going to wiggle that back up From here. To there and I want to just
move this And All right. And then we put our little
centers in there which I’ll show you and some other really good looks.
Daffodil is when you have that little hook on the green stem. So what I’m
gonna do now before I turn this over And I’m gonna put this right here by
us so that refreshes your memory as we’re stroking. Oh yeah. That’s right.
There’s three of these. All right. Also before I start I want to do the
citrus green sap green. And I’m going to use the same 12 to show you. But
But like I told you that it’s a lot bigger on this side. All right. And I would use a three
quarter over there but I’m going to go and between these two and work it
in and pick up a little bit more citrus green. OK and a teeny bit. We are really
on a teaching guide need much medium. But when we get our canvas we might.
So the same thing happens here As I started the chisel here chisel chisel
so I’m going to start here and slide reverse direction of the bristles
and slide back down. All right. So just make sure see and I put it
right here and see if I got a good blend. And I think it could have used a little
bit more color. All right. So we can go up and then slide back down
and then we just pull this stem right in the middle. And I want it to really
stand out. So you have to decide it needs to be dark green OK. And I have all these fun projects
that you can do with this and it’s fun to be creative and think I need
to practice. So what can I practice on and I can tell you. I want you to
practice on greeting cards because they’re a fun thing to do and you give
them away. See I’m wiping that all off now. See how it starts. It starts
staying on there because it’s so such durable beautiful paint. All right.
So there we go. We’re going to do our big leaves first and some stems.
All right. So I went here is just like that. Now I have to do is practice
a little bit. All right. So I want this right behind me so don’t forget
what I’m doing. So that’s what I want to do is put it right there with you.
And the first thing we’re going to do if you’re looking at our little
piece here is I did use a large brush to do the back those back green leaves
and I’m going to put those in before we start putting in our flower. So I’ve dampened my brush laid on the
paper towel and I’m going to go and between these two citrus green and
sap green between the two colors and it split it here then I go here to
work it in. OK. I am pushing hard so it works in you want to inside the bristles.
And if it’s not inside the bristles the bristles split and people
are thinking what’s wrong with this. Then I want to get the medium I’m working in.
Right. So I want you all to be excited to try this fun project. OK. Now what’s going to happen is I
came all the way up here high. So one of the things I can do is start from
the top and push down. And stand up as I get right down there. Now I wouldn’t
normally do this flat but I want to put others stems across it. So I’m
going to come back get more paint and medium work it in All right. Now I was kind of rigid
on these because they are pretty straight All right. And if I came here I’m going
to come down the other side and kind of go straight in. All Right. And we did. These are supposed
to have a little bit of a curve as we practiced before on the tip. So
So I’m going to come out. Curve. And slide I want to come back here my little
fingers guiding me instead of thinking where the brush is going I want to
think about your little finger. All right. So then right in here I did have one
that pushed down and stands up and I pull a stem into that. You can also
go back and pull a stem in a couple these a little vein. It’s not a stem
as kind of a vein in the leaf All right. And one more and it is curved
and it comes back. Right One more little one here. And I turned
it out to the side ok now let’s look at what’s next. Where do you figure that was next.
We’re gonna put the flower stems in and because the flowers are gonna go
in and then I’m going to put more blue back down here to cover that edge.
All right. So let’s do our stems because we want them is a couple of
more behind the flower. So if you wait till afterwards you’re going to still
make it look like it was kind of behind. All right. So I want to come right
over here. I’ve got this. I have a small the 10 flat and I’m on the chisel and
I’m going to lead with the lard with the dark sap color the sap Green. I’m
I’m going to curve and then I’m going to slide down and right here I’m going
to come up a little bit so you can see it. See I just flip my brush and
brought the light green and. All Right. So way over here. This one I’m going
to push down and turn turn turn turn turn. Now you can tell. That I ran out of
paint here so Just going over it a couple of times
and I didn’t see this back there. I went ahead and put it in. OK now
while that green setting a little bit but you really can’t put your yellow
on top of the green until that’s dry. I’m going to work more on my watering can.
OK so I to pick up some more blue. And I want to come right here at the
top and clean this up Where all those green leaves went in. So what you’re going to love is using
this cobalt blue just so vivid that you can’t get another color. That’s so pretty that’s like I said
I had those Blue Willow plates all over and that’s why I really love that color.
All right. So I’m going to pick up a little better Wicker white
and I’m going to do a little little teeny see there Just a little bit. And I know I want
to clean my brush totally because if I can put the white on top of some
of this but I can’t put on with blue on my brush so I’m going to take my
12 and I’m going to pick up wicker white work it in. All right. And. I want to come right
down here. And I’m going to use my little finger to steady me and pull me. And I’m going to start over here and
come the other way. All right. And then I have a little
one there around there but I want to use my liner. So I’m going to touch
lean and pull. All right a little bit more wicker white. All right. Now if you’re doing this
I’m up on the chisel and I’m using. The regular thick paint with a chisel edge.
Now I just see what I’ve done here. This happens really easy is that you
go back and forth and back and forth and it gets wider and wider because
you’re trying to clean that up and make that a little bit smoother. And
And it’s like when you’re lettering and it gets bigger and bigger. So be careful.
And as this is drying try to start out small first and then you
could get bigger. You have room to grow. All right. So try to remember to pick up fresh
paint each time and stay up on the chisel. All right. So I’m going to come in
here with the one of the two script liner and I’m going to get a little
bit of white OK a little bit of white with some water and make it inky and
I have to do this little strip right here All right. And then I like to put a
little bit of a highlight. And a little bit in here to do. I just
want to accent this little area here. So you can see that that’s where the
spout coming. OK all righty. So now we’re going to get ready to put the
flower on and you really don’t want it on I can start out here or let’s
start up there that one. OK. So now we’re going to go for our moon yellow
and our wicker white and we’re going to use a twelve flat. So I’m going
to pick up right down here. Let’s pick up both colors. All right. And then
we’re going to come here and work them in. And I want you to work it in. So it’s
at least two thirds full really quick back and forth. So it works it in.
And then you can then from then on just make sure you’re picking it up on the edge.
OK. Now I’m going to do my first petal right here and I want you
to look let me move this out of the way so you can say I want you to watch
your guide here because it’s going to show you the three that we did first.
Our three and then the next three. And so as kind of funny here too because
I’m gonna go upward here. So I’m gonna come right up and I actually
did come back later. And put extra white on the edge. So it was really vivid.
But I let that dry first. OK so I’m going to move the surrounds. I can
get to it. I’m going to pick out more yellow more white and I’m going to
do the rest of that triangle like it’s way out here and push down. Way out
here and push down. Now that didn’t come out far enough let’s take a little
bit farther. And that’s where you guys start worrying. But you can go
right on the leaf and it’s OK. All right. So then I’m going to come
right in here. And there. The second petal that row. All right. All right. So we’re. Yeah. Got to really
make sure we base coat a lot of pain in there. I do a few coats all right. Now this one’s gonna be hanging kind
of so I’m gonna make that just a little bit different. I’m gonna have one coming
down because all we’re gonna see we don’t really see what’s behind it. All right all right. And we want one
straight up here And I’m going to come back and get
a little bit more all right Little bit more we’re going to have a couple
more up here and there. All right. So what we have to do is
we want to see this one doesn’t show at all. So let’s pick out some more
fresh paint. And we’re going to come right down there. So I’m telling you until I went back
when this totally dried and added more white it was just kind of disappearing
on here. But as long as you get the strokes in there and they’re
going to look good. All right So I have a third one and I made it kind
of big over here. All right. And so this center. I made
it here lets put more yellow in there. See that. So we’re going to come right
out here. When they come right here and make it stronger All right. OK. So then the last thing I split
these down here. Because you don’t see both places you don’t see the underneath
panel All right. Now see this starts drying
. I just keep coming back here and more white and then I add more yellow
if I needed to. So the last thing that I’m going to do on this on the
flower itself is work on their trumpets that we’re going to put in them and
they’re all right. So it’s OK to keep the same brush loaded like it’s loaded
but we need to get some red. All right. So I’m going to pick up the red all right.
We’re going to have moon yellow apple red Right now. We had to take off some
of that White it’s going to be way better with mostly yellow right. So let’s move that out of the way and
we’ll keep going to get it. Now this flower here the first one I did I actually
I can go ahead. Now I’m going to start it here. Just got to stay
up put the trumpets and then come back but I’ll do it right here So we’re gonna go all the way around
and just make it look like a round flower. But it’s a trumpet in front of the
face Of a daffodil. All Right. So that’s like you’re looking
straight in it. And I will put some more detail in there and sometimes
I’ll come back and just put a little bit of a slice of red in the middle
to make it more intense. All right. So right here I’m going
to have this trumpet coming this way. And OK. So we’re going to come right in
here And we’re going to pick up a little
better white remember how I add a little bit of white into the yellow. So while
this is wet you want to slide down wiggle wiggle. Go and there we go. All right. So I’ll go back later. And
And put some more detail. And we’re going to make these these flowers pop by
putting some of that citrus green or a little bit of sap behind them. And
And whoops I did. Let me see what I can do here. This is a good example I did
this on purpose is to show you that we’re gonna come in here with a wet
brush and we can clean off that smear. All Right. So we’re gonna come right here
and clean that right there. And put the green back in there. All right. So we have this one little
guy here now. This one we can see down inside this one. We barely can
see anything inside. So we’re going to come right here. And it’s going
to I’d like these were they kind of come out from here. OK right in here OK put a little bit of yellow I think
we need a little teeny bit of white too. All right all the way over I don’t want this. There’s a ridge
there that’s kind of showing. We want to make sure that we Put enough paint that doesn’t throw
off our look. Okay. All the way down to there Right. OK. So I’m gonna let that slide
a little bit and come down here and float the bottom because there’s
more detailed to put in that but we don’t see that right now. I mean we
can’t get there right now and put it in there because everything’s wet.
So I’m going to wash this brush and we will come. We’ll start to just have
minute and do the bottom. OK Let’s get started on floating around our
flowers and putting this watering can on top of a table. So I’m gonna pick
out my floating medium with a three quarter inch brush because the larger
the brush the better the floating process is. So if you have floated
before you’re going to like this we’re going to pick up some other light green
and I already have the medium on the brush and we’re gonna work this in.
All right. So it’s mostly on one side there. OK. And every time we go
back and we pick up a little bit more of the citrus green because I want
a darker version of what’s in the back. All right. And then the back we had some white
in there. So I’m going to come along here. Look at this. Now those are going to pop.
Now if you look at this you’ll see I got it way too wide and so I
don’t want you to do that. So it’s easy to take because of the medium and take
and come back here and push it back. Along this edge and I can keep going
on right here next to it next to it next to it. Pushes it back. But yet
the flower shows and that brush is a little big. So I’m going to go back
to a 12 that’s when I was really going to use for the table. But let’s
do the 12 for here because see there we go. And we wanted the come around
here because then I’ll make the white show a little bit better. All right But the beautiful thing is see that. See what I did there I just made it
really wide. I can just wipe it on the paper towel and make it thin all right.
Now another little trick is if I got it on top of this petal I
take water like this right here I went right on top of the petal so all I
have to do is take water and take it off right where. Anywhere that it did that.
OK. So that’s a little little tip for you. They help you. All right. So we can do each one of those that
way and then we’re going gonna get the medium. Then I’ll go down and do
the shading under the table. All right. So little bets see whenever there’s
dark paint around it you don’t have to do all that because it already separates
it All right little bit here saying now
I came back. I’ll show you. And I added a little bit of white I
think you can see adding a little bit of white to the edges. So look I can come right in here on
any of these and added heavier white along there. All right so then it stands
out better and also you can do that if the light green covered some
of it. OK so I would see like a pedal like this. Right here. See this pedal I kind of
lost the shape so I can come right in here. And fix it up just a little bit.
All right All right. So now we’re gonna come
in here with a big brush again The three quarter got a lot of paint and
I did come out with a little bit of dark green sap green and here. There
There I go again see I got it on top. All right. So I’m making the straight line see
across here. Come down on the other side. Get a little bit of sap green. There
There we are. Uh a little bit of sap green along
here because it would be shadowed over here. And under here. Now you have two options
when you get to this the spot right here where I went onto the watering can.
You can keep bringing blue in there but I really want you just
to take your wet brush and clean that off. OK. Because you’re going to put blue on
and go back into the green. How to pick that up. So I just take that wet
brush and look how easy it is to wipe it off. Okay because I got carried
away just a little bit All right. And. All right now I’m going to finish off.
So I think I really like that one I think that we’ve learned a lot of
different steps in this one and we’re gonna come in here was really nice
white and it’s kind of thick and I rolled my brush in it and we’re just going
to touch and pull touch and pull. So when I touch it gets a little thicker
and then I lift touch and lift. That’s what I want to say. The mantra Of lay it down left. Lay it left lay
it at different heights you say different heights. All right so then one thing I didn’t
do on here that I need you to say is if I can do the deeper red in here.
And and it’s not going to show much so cause I want to go down the throat
of the trumpet then one thing I did do is just take a little bit of yellow
because it didn’t show All right. And I want to. Rub that
in just a little bit. And then we’ll put the little white stamens coming
out of the center of the throat there OK. So touch pull touch pull see how I’m
curving them little bit and that’s in ky that’s a little bit thicker so that
they can go right on top of the wet And you sign it and you’re done. I
I had fun painting that Daffodil I hope you did too. Did you know you could
take a pencil and lightly sketch your container and make it easy to base coat.
Did you know that a daffodil had six petals and if you break it down
to a triangle and put three bass pedals and rotat it and put three more you
would have a daffodil easily Well next month I am so thrilled to show
you that we’re going to be doing the flower of the month which is April
and we’re going to be doing Sweet Peas. So between now and next month I want
you to be painting daffodils and be ready to come paint Sweet Peas with
me
