Paint first, draw later

Paint first, draw later


Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday. Here’s your weekly dose of inspiration to build a creative habit one drawing at a time brought to you by Sketchbook Skool. Hi, welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday. Remember last week we drew our hands? Let’s do it again. But this time we will start
with paint and then draw. So take out your watercolors and a pen and your
Sketchbook of course and let’s get drawing. All right. So let’s pick up some paint and
draw the overall shape. So that means we are again not
looking at any details. We’re just looking at the main shape. So basically what you’re doing is draw the fingers and
the palm of the hand, but it’s really important to paint what you see and not paint
with you think a hand looks like. And be quick. Don’t fiddle around. Just a few strokes and you’re done. And then you just need to let it dry. And once it’s dry then you can pick up
your pen and look again at the shape. And you don’t trace the paint that you just painted but
you use it sort of as a guideline and it doesn’t have to fit exactly. So this is also sort of
a correction phase. So if you’ve been too sloppy, then you can
just correct that with your pen lines. And again here you can use the negative
spaces while you are drawing. So keep looking at your subject while
you are drawing all the shapes in. And when you think you’re done, you can also add the
wrinkles again, and also maybe some shading with just simple hatching lines and you can do that as elaborate as you want to or just leave it at all and as you can see, it’s really quick. It’s a quick method to draw something that might
feel a little bit intimidating or complicated. So this is a fantastic exercise. I hope you will try it. You can do it with all sorts of things. You know, you don’t need
to draw your hand. You can draw whatever you think
is a little bit complicated. Maybe it’s a chair or maybe it’s
a plant with a lot of leaves. Well whatever it is that’s around you and that you would
like to tackle and draw just throw down that paint. Take a bright color and and play
around with your paint. Splash it around, let it dry
and then draw over it. It’s just a fun effect. It’s a fun way to draw. It’s a playful way to exercise and
practice your drawing skills. So I hope you will take this into
practice into your SketchBook. And if you want more like inspiration more drawing
techniques more friends, being entertained watch great videos head on over to Sketchbook
Skool because that’s where you get it all! I’ll see you next week!
