How to Paint a Landscape with acrylics step by step (SUBTITLED)


Al materials will be listed as they appear in the video brands of my paints are at description of this video Today, I’ll paint with acrylics over 300 grams watercolor paper Gesso is a primer to make paper less absorbent and more resistant to painting we’ll use a limited palette of colors water and sereral sinthetic brushes are needed a pen marker water resistant palette for mixing disposable let’s start! first of all, well aply a coat of gesso the paper, and then wait until it is completly dry you must cover all the paper with Gesso now, with burnt sienna and a lot of water we’ll paint an under painting coat you only need a small amount of paint paint the whole surface, and then wait half an hour until it is dry Phtalo blue, Ultramarine blue and White are the colors I’ll use this time to paint sky an far mountains remember: acrylic paint dries very fast, so do not put a lot of paint on the palette, so you will not waste anything paint with a “zig-zag” movement now, ad some white and paint another line all my brushes are synthetic mix together with horizontal brush strokes If the video is too fast for you, you can make it go slower with the YouTube options with just white, paint the clouds put the brush in “horizontal” and apply loose brush strokes to paint clouds clean your brush with water and paper and, with ultramarine blue and white, paint the farther mountains remember: to paint large and distant objects such as the sky or the mountains, use flat and large brushes phtalo blue nearer mountains paint darker the top of the distant mountains, that will give a greater sense of depth to your landscape lemon yellow mixed with phtalo blue give a very cold green cold colors for more distant areas As you can see, until this moment I have always used the same brush now I will use a brush type Filbert phtalo green, sap green, lemon yellow, cadmiun dark yellow, cadmium red, magenta, black an white this is a filbert brush Put the brush upright to paint the trees and put the brush flat to paint the bushes As you can see, the type of brush is as important as the type of brushstroke dark and light colors together, but not mixed to create contrast My proficiency in spoken English is very poor, that’s why many of my videos are subtitled, I think that’s how you’ll understand me better this is a special flat brush for acrylic paint Use as much water as you need, but remember, less is better It is preferable to use little or no water if you can cold colors to distant things, and warm colors to near places now lets start with details I will use a small flat brush remember: acrylics dry fast, don’t put too much paint over the palette, just what you can use in 10 o 15 minutes do you want I upload more acrylics tutorials? please like and share! fan brush is perfect to paint textures like grass remember: use as many brushstrokes as you can, that will make your paintings much more vital and interesting we must be able to see details in the nearest place so paint more carefully, more paint and shorter brush strokes, the closest areas add some lights, buy allways with te same colors we put on the palette last details now remember, if you like this video click on thumbs up! share with your friends, and subscribe! almost finished! see you next video!

  1. this was very nice……so you always water down your paints? I've been using straight paint….the thick way :)thanx for sharing this

  2. Lovely picture thanks for sharing. Maybe not so much watery paint at the beginning – this can lead to your painting flaking off in future years as it is under-binding. Acrylic polymers need an acrylic medium. A little water is ok but if you want to use a thin wash ground colour then mix yr colour with an acrylic medium. This will bind the paint to the support/gesso, while still diluting your colour. (Painter for 35 yrs)

  3. WoW your brushes 🙂 They can say what they want bur ofcourse what kind of brushes been used matters ! So strange some artist never want to tell whats the brand of their brushes, it make me crazy hehe 🙂 Thank you for your painting lesson ! 🙂

  4. the experience of the unfathomable distance that exists between the work of their hands, however successful, and the blazing perfection of the beauty perceived in the fervor of the creative moment: what they manage to express in what they paint, sculpt or create is only a faint reflection of the splendor that for a few moments has shone before such as Paul Gauguin, Guillermo Jiménez Sáen, Gabino amaya cacho, Edna Andrade, Paul Cézanne, Sérvulo Gutiérrez, Alvaro Suárez Vértiz among others the eyes of his spirit.

  5. I thought that diluting acrylic paint that thin with water would eventually cause the acrylic to crack on the canvas after it's dry (noticed the dilution when putting the sienna color on the canvas after the gesso). Would you need to use some other type of solution made for diluting acrylic? I know you can add water to acrylic but only so much and I can't recall what the amount is.

  6. What grade would you consider the Vallejo paints? They are not available in the city I live in, but I can get them online.

  7. I would have enjoyed it better if there had been no time gap (red flowers up front) and if the smaller brushes had been introduced. but yeah. thanks

  8. we did not get your name. very nice work. the video finished abruptly. Hope we see, more videos, we can learn from you. Thank you for sharing your talent with us

  9. Nice work, the only thing I question is why you use paper, get a small canvas will last a long time and you can give this as a present to some one. Paper goes to the trash

  10. I love this painting. I've watched it dozens of time. I'm curious, what is the black and gray brush you use in the beginning?
