Simple 3-Step Leaves
Thanks for your interest in learning my 3-step painting method! I am looking forward to sharing more with you during my upcoming Zoom workshop. I want to share a few things with you in advance so you can practice, and get excited. In this video, I am going to show you how to paint some very simple leaves using my 3-step painting method.
Even though these leaves are pretty basic it is important to understand the steps and techniques used. These are important foundational steps to learn and master in order to apply them to more complex and realistic subjects.
- Creating basic shapes using the tip and belly of the brush with varying pressure
- Create tonal variation using the "Dip Dab" technique
- Drying brushing on veins
- Create small graded washes and blend them out without covering up the first layers of your painting
