I'm sorry, but the presentation was inadequate.  What materials were specifically used for the first layer before spraying with water?  What's the idea of the big leaf?  How did all the leaf bits and pieces suddenly appear later?  Sorry to be so negative, but was not an adequate teaching tool, although the concepts were interesting.

you skipped a step! How did you get the leaves on the board/paper that are there.You did not show the most important part of the painting.
Rowan (4 years ago)
It may seem like she skipped a step, but if you understood what she meant when she was talking about how she would paint the oak leaf (with the tracing paper and sharpie) you could figure out that it's just painting the negative space AROUND the leaves, not the leaf itself. It is a negative space painting, so you're leaving that texture she built up in the first part and coming in with acrylic & painting the big shapes around the leaves, then building detail. I know she didn't specifically show that step, but it was easy to see how she did it.

What sort of substrate are you painting on... how does one prepare that?
shinysunlight (5 years ago)
This is one of the coolest things I've seen lately. This require a totally different approach and way of seeing things. I'm really intrigued by it. Thank you so much for showing this and explaining. !!

Greetings Ms. Linda! I would like to ask that what paint you use and still have that or shapes, designs neckline and attach the image or add to a drawing layer. For example, a letter from the tree, and under it the second sheet. I do not know how to do it. Sorry, if you bother. I send cordial greetings. Anna
Anna Madarova (5 years ago)
Dear Ms. Linda! I really like your paintings. I would like to get at least a little practice to master. If it was possible, so please write as you did underpainting and what you farbami.Vodu sprayed on semi-dry underpainting and whether there is also some paint. I do not understand. Possible for your reply thank you in advance. Best regards from Slovakia Anna

Hello Omta, it's a great question. thanks for posting it. Try enlarging the opening (the hole) of the spray nozzle with a pin. That may do the trick! It also helps depress the nozzle with short, slow movements. Practice over a piece of newsprint so you can see the spray pattern before you apply the water to your painting. Alternatively you can dampen your fingers and flick the moisture onto your painted surface. The droplets will be larger which will make interesting textures. Hope this helps!

might be a stupid question, but all my spray bottle are misty, so how or where can I find a messy water spray ?
