Sketching and colouring coupled together is indeed a beautiful calligraphy, netting the imperative elements through a few strokes and creating light, mid-tone and dark hues can be really adventurous. Sketching a landscape or a tranquil surrounding through watercolours can prove to be a vivid interest towards life. The fields and marsh lands that are painted with bright and dark green hues can promisingly be a little wonder to look at. For beginners who would like to prove their mettle at sketching here comes an assortment of steps. To begin with, when the beauty of nature confronts, soak in that overwhelming experience for a while.
Slowly the mind begins to streamline the scenic view into forms, shapes and colours. Continue to interpret more imagination from the visual, start sketching the interpretation through simple strokes and fill them with colours and forms. For example, to paint a tree, the brain would work on the interior details like its tons of branches and leaves but that’s not enough, the spirit of the background has to be captured. In simple terms, the heart of the sketching originates from the scenic location of where the tree belongs to. Capturing such vital elements play an important role in sketching.
To work swiftly should be the motive, few minutes to half an hour’s time for a location sketch would just be optimum. Including too many details in the sketch wound dissolve the primary motive. Brighten up the sketch through colours and strokes as quickly as possible and then continue to structure the image. Try to portray the visual form that captured attention in the most realistic way possible. Do not allow imaginations to wander elsewhere amidst the sketching session. Stay true to the original visual form that captured interest and trail them through to the culmination. Step into this enchanting world of watercolours and see the world in a whole new dimension.
Colour and light are the reverse sides of the same coin. Colour is fashioned by the excellence of light on that particular atmosphere. When a brush is picked up to begin water colouring many queries pop out. A few tips that can come handy while colouring includes helping reduce the drying time, get rid of excess water using a fresh unpolluted hair brush. Hair brush turns out to be more absorbent in nature when compared to synthetic brushes. The tip of a paper napkin can also be used to dry excess water. But pressing too hard on the area may lead to removal of the colour.
Back washes and blossoming can result due to two different areas drying at varied rates. Water from the wet area starts seeping into the dry area which results in the creation of a blossom. Though it turns out to be happy accidents sometimes, mostly it results in a disaster. A wet painting has to be carefully monitored until it completes drying. If suppose blossom begins to form, reapply the colours and let it dry all over again. Sometimes grainy washes arise due to sedimentary colours and pigments. This can be due to the fact that the uncovered palette allowed dust particles to mount up. A hair brush flattens the deposit on the picture.
Hard lines are formed when water is reapplied to an area before it gets dried completely. This results in the movement of pigments to outer edges. Allowing the painting to dry entirely before reapplying colours can be an obvious solution. But on seeing the appearance of hard waterlines, soften them using a scrub brush and continue to glaze with little water. Warping and buckling results when watercolour accumulates as a pool on light weight papers. Tilting or moving the paper can prevent pooling of colours. Using a hair dryer from a slightly farther point can hasten the process.
