Painting seascapes in unexpected colour combinations with Mark Warner | Deutsche Untertitel


so if you look at some of my paintings you’ll see that there’s there’s a lot of color in there but also there’s some color that you don’t necessarily think is going to be there and it’s about moving that color around so [Laughter] [Music] [Laughter] [Music] my name is Mark Warner I’m an artist based in Shropshire in the United Kingdom and I love landscapes and seascapes [Music] what I thought we could do today is work on a seascape in acrylics but quite an expressive ciske we’re going to be working on pastel paper okay so blue pastel paper the colors that I’m going to use in an acrylic is cerulean blue and some white some Prussian blue some burnt umber and a lovely color I quite like this is burgundy color here okay so the first thing I’m going to do here is it’s not used water and go straight into it with with the blue the way that I apply this color is quite vigorous really and I’m trying to do it in a kind of a sketchy way because I want to give the appearance of of the whole thing having lots of movement but also thinking about the direction of this so looking at this picture what I’ve got are some clouds in perspective almost I’ve got a bank of clouds here but I’ve also got some clouds kind of going off to the corners okay mixing a tiny bit of white with it and what I do in every painting that I paint is I have a slither of the same material or color or paper at the side so that whenever I mix that particular color I can pop it on there and you can see straight away how that there is a difference between the mixing palette and actually the the paper that you are you’re working on okay so this is my middle color and I’m going to work quite quickly [Music] I’m not using this brush like a pen I’m kind of pushing some of that color that’s underneath there in the same kind of direction now the bottom part the top part of the horizon line against the horizon on itself there is a contrast and that’s that’s what gives you the depth within the picture but try and mix up those lines here so that it’s not as kind of constant at this point I’m gonna add a bit more water so that I can move the paint around without any water on my pallet I’m just going to pick up that white and this time pick up some Prussian blue if you had water on this what would tend to happen is that those bristles would go together and you wouldn’t you’d have em you wouldn’t have this this kind of fibrous approach to it really and so I’m going to think about where I’m putting my clouds okay and I’m thinking about this kind of sweep here this is really important so the sweep of those clouds the direction of these clouds and how they kind of sweep through twisting the brush is different directions so you’re getting an uneven surface [Music] that’s the underpainting of the of the sky done what I’m going to do now is start to work with turquoise so color I quite like for CSM is a cobalt turquoise color again it’s it’s a Windsor Newton color I’ve got a bit of white coming through which is on here so let’s just mix those together and that’s my color and again the see like like the sky is gonna have it’s not the same all the way across so it doesn’t matter if you change that color my waves are horizontal so you can’t go wrong by just putting lines going across the page okay so what I’m going to do is try and work on the foreground [Music] okay now I’ve got that color I like that color I’m just gonna mix a bit of that magenta in there so again using the brush as I would a pencil really thinking about lines thinking about reflections and then there are waves there are suggestions suggestions of waves or suggestion of movement as I work I tend to get brighter with my colors so I’ll put in some bright orange and there’s also another color it’s a lovely color called pale terracotta which is kind of like a pinky salmon color which works well with shorelines so for me that pale terracotta gives it a bit of life really it gives it that kind of warmth because these blooms are quite cold so if you look at some of my paintings you’ll see that there’s there’s a lot of color in there but also there’s some color that you don’t necessarily think is going to be there and it’s about moving that color around [Music] okay what I’ll do now is just try and work on a small area with detail and that’s how I would normally kind of continue with the painting so smaller strokes no that’s that’s what I’m doing is still working horizontally picking out those highlights my lines my lines of sand I mean I know we haven’t got real lines on the sand but what I’m trying to do is kind of emphasize this this whole kind of perspective thing going on and wherever I see that color keep saying it but it’s important that you you do pop that in even if it’s over in the distance that’s going on the waves but they’re not gonna be white so this red will hopefully jump forward this magenta with a bit of the Naples yellow etc and a background will kind of move forward where else can I see that when I can see it in so what I’m saying really is that you learn to give it a go don’t worry about the colors that you are applying enjoy [Music] [Laughter] [Music]
