medieval-houseTutorial by GrimDreamArt medieval-houseTutorial by GrimDreamArt
Tutorial dedicated to :iconzenrumi: , who inspired me to make one.
We'll need:
-paper(watercolor paper is recommended)
-pen/artpen, it would be nice if we had something with waterproof ink for first 4 steps
-watercolors (here brown, red, yellow and dark blue - not many as you can see)
-salt (for sky and shaded parts)
-tissue or even toilet paper to dry parts were we put too much water
-a lot of patience:)

I'm going to start a painting based on this awesome tutorial, and I have one question: So, I'm pretty new to watercolours, okay very new :D, and I was wondering how you make the shadows?? Do you just use black paint with lots of water? Thank you in advance :)

I usually use the same colors for shadows and sunlit parts but watercolors for shadows are more intense (less diluted) and I often add just a little bit of violet, dark blue or black to it.

Indeed the composition of blocks with setting vanishing points is crucial. I'm really glad that you like this tutorial :)

Very nice. Do you use instruments like rulers and protractors to help you draw straight lines and angles in your drawings? :)
Reply
:icongrimdreamart:
GrimDreamArt Featured By Owner May 19, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! I don't use any tools to draw straight lines(probably that's why some of lines in my pictures aren't straight :) ). I definitely prefer freehand drawing.

mycupisempty Featured By Owner May 19, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Me too. Using tools makes the drawing too technical, and not really art. :)

love your tutorial! :D hey what's the function of salt???
Reply
:icongrimdreamart:
GrimDreamArt Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
I used salt to make textures (on the sky mostly). Salt absorbs water from the wet paint and leaves a characteristic pattern. After the paint dries salt can be easily removed.

oh thanksss :D so you mixed salt in water or just sowed after you paint on paper?? many thanks before :)

I put few grains of salt on a drawing when the watercolor was still wet:)

It's not a waste. just look at how it came out .
For me...it would take days...and still not come out at least near the drawing's level :)
