The debut appearance of Gumboot Girl (alter ego, perhaps?) in my very first watercolour and ink exploration. I have a feeling she is going to be staying a while. #beginnerartist #beginnerart #watercolourbeginner #watercolour #illustration #watercolourandink #inkandwatercolor #micron #character #alterego #funart

Stony Path 5 In this version I wanted to experiment with the light source. I wanted it to look much more dramatic. Do you like it?

It’s Friday How-To again! Today how to’s is How To Paint Aloe Vera Plant 😬 1. Find a good Aloe pic for reference. I’m lucky enough to have a live one thanks to mom’s garden. 2. Sketch out the plant. Keep it simple by painting basic shapes such as circles, long ovals etc then define the petals so they they dont end up looking rigid, try making them look fluid and flowly just like the plant. 3. (Optional) I often trace my sketches so I can use them in the future. I use carbon/graphite paper to trace the outlines and practice other painting techniques such as using masking fluid to create the details. By doing this, you cut time sketching out another Aloe. 4. Start painting! Paint light to medium wash of color for each part of the Aloe petals. Then paint a darker tone of each color for the areas you see that has darker tone (keep color referencing your picture/live model). Tadaaaa! Frame it up in glass frame or standard frame and instantly add a minimalistic effect to your home space. Remember that practice makes progress and that success comes from keeping it simple, you’ll be surprised at the results! Oh do try and use the hashtag #inspiredbypaintstobrushes if you want to share your Aloe painting using the tips I shared. I’ll be doing more of this in my Botanical Plants with Masking Fluid class happening this Sunday in Kota Kinabalu! Seats are still available if you’re asking. In the meanwhile, enjoy! ___________ Materials: Mechanical pencil: Faber castel Pen: A-Star dual brush pen Graphite paper: Pelican Tracing paper: Campap 65gsm Paper: Campap Cotton 300gsm Brush: Silver Black Velvet 8 Watercolor: Olive Green, Green Grey, Lemon Green, Paynes Grey
