Diary of an Artist: How I Create Mini Meadows Part Two

Good morning everyone!

Today’s vlog is part two of Diary of an Artist: How I Create Mini Meadows. If you watched last week’s vlog, welcome back; if you’re a new viewer, welcome to my vlog.

In this video I’m going to focus on painting the foliage. To do this, I’m going to use a variety of green pastel shades.

To create these green pastel shades, I mixed together burnt umber, ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow, raw sienna and white. Once I’ve created the shade I want, which is similar to how grass looks once it’s been well watered, I then start from the bottom and work my way up to the top. As I move upwards and fill in the sides, I change the pastel shade a bit so it’s more of a blue-green colour to show the sun shining down on the meadow.

After I’ve got all of the background done, I then go over the grasses with a fine brush. By doing this, I give the grasses more definition and substance.
