The process requires several steps: 1) decide on the color you want (red, green or blue), 2) choose the brush (brush is most important of course), which is the most important and will decide on the colors, 3) decide how to draw on it, that’s the hardest part and will determine if you make a good sketch or if you will lose the whole stroke. So think carefully about the drawing style first before you even decide on the brush to use. If you are using a brush with fine bristles, you will be able to make some good shapes easily. You can try using the same brush to draw the other colors though, this way you will be able to draw more on the same color.
But the most important step (and one that is not easily followed), is to choose a paint from the first few things you pick up, you will find that if you paint quickly everything changes and even if that is true, there are times and places when you simply will not have the time to draw for the next hour. So it is quite important that you try some different shades, some darker ones, some lighter ones. That’s why the paintings you make should still be able to look beautiful from very small details and from very big ones.
As you can see the colors we use for most paintings are fairly dark, this is because it is quite hard to reach the perfect color, especially when you think that your strokes are small and you want to draw things on their own. You will find the ideal colors by experimenting and finding out what looks better for your style, if you are doing more abstract stuff (watercolor or oil painting), you may need to experiment with the colors and find which is your main color and which is the next color, and if you decide you like all three it’s ok, this will make your paintings better, also you could choose not to use these colors and have them used for smaller things. If you are more artistic, you can always choose to make paintings to try different colors, these are called “diamonds” from real life.
Now on our sketch is done, we just have to draw and we have to do this drawing by hand; that is the part that can take time and some pain for beginners. But there are ways to make a pencil sketch, it’s called a drawing by “pen”, so you can find many “Pen” tutorials on the internet about how to draw by hand, here are a few links of them.
