– Do you want
(gentle instrumental music) to learn how to do the watercolor painting of the truck from our Aesop’s Fable play, The And and the Grasshopper? You can follow along. To get a copy of the print so
you can paint your own truck, click on the link in the description. Remember, this is your
painting, so it’s unique. You can paint it like you want. This is just a guideline. First, have your drawing ready. Start with the background. The artist started with the sky first. Then, the artist painted the trees. She used a lighter colored green because she is going to use
a technique called glazing, where you paint a color
on top of another color. This gives the painting layers and depth. (upbeat instrumental music) Here, the artist is using a
technique called Scumbling. It creates the textured look of the dirt. The paint is applied without
the use of water on the brush. The artist then paints the
tree trunks in the background. Now, using a darker green, and the glazing technique, the artist paints over the trees. This gives the look of many trees. To give a softer look to the trees, add water to the brush,
to a light brown color, and lightly go over the trees, where the tree trunks are white. This will soften that area,
but still leave contrast. Contrast in a painting is when you paint opposite types of colors. For example, if you were
painting with a dark color, then you would paint with a light color, and this would give the painting contrast. Using the Scumbling technique again, the artist adds a shadow under the truck. She then paints the truck. You can paint the truck
any color you want. We painted our truck blue, but you can paint it
red, or green, or yellow, or any color you can imagine. While using the same color blue, the artist glazed over areas of the truck to give it more shape, or dimension. Then, she uses the tip of her brush to paint lines on the truck. (bright instrumental music) Now we paint the tires black. Do you know what shape the tires are? Are they squares? Triangles? Rectangles? Or circles? That’s right, circles. Outline and paint the windows. Using the gray color, start painting the hub cap. Darken the area where
the truck and tires meet, to give the appearance of shadows. Using the tip of your brush again, outline the front and back bumper with fine black strokes. Any time where there is a fine line, you’ll want to use the tip of the brush. If you want to make a thicker line, you’re going to want to
put pressure on the brush, so the brush will spread,
making a thicker line. Add shading to the trunk of the truck, using a darker color. Then, use the truck color
that we used of blue. Now, using a reddish brown color, paint rust around the back, giving the appearance of an old truck. And sometimes on old
trucks, things are missing, like a side mirror. This adds character to your painting. Now, you can outline areas of the truck, to add more detail. Using the blue color again, add water to your brush,
and paint over the windows, making it look more like glass. As you paint, you can add more details, and fill in areas as you go. With a darker color, outline the door handle and the gas cap. Do you remember what this is called? That’s right, Scumbling, which means to use a dry
brush, and very little paint. With this technique, it’s
better to have to paint over an area again than to
start with too much paint. Now, the painting is finished, and our truck is ready to drive off. (engine revving) I like painting with a Brookish and Lanky watercolor brush pens, because you can see what
color you’re painting with, and you don’t make mistakes as easy. – Me too. What’s your favorite color
in the Brookish and Lanky watercolor brush pen pack? – I like blue. – I like blue as well. – Yellow for me. I like yellow. – I love pink, I think it’s pretty. – I like blue. – Copy cat. – Oh, ummm….yellow. I mean, pink. – I like red, of course. – And I like white, because
it rhymes with write. – But they don’t have white. Wanna write? – Oh. Well then I like, I like, I like,
(cricket chirping) what do I like? I like purple. (orchestral music)
