This lesson shows you how really easy it is to show reflections in any object, especially a very shiny one. We’ll really be creating a sketch rather than a finished work but the re-creating the look of a reflective object doesnt’ really take a lot of work.
Drawing Layout For Any Painting
One note on the drawing layout. The downloadable layouts are done with heavy lines to make it easy to see and copy onto your watercolor paper. It is best not to draw the lines too heavy on your paper, especially in the sky, since there is a good chance the lines will show through the paint. It’s not a deal-breaker, but those heavy pencil lines are sometimes a distraction.
What you’ll need
- Brushes – Medium Round, Small Round, and Cotman #3 Rigger .
- Colors – Raw Sienna, WN Cerulean Blue, Daniel Smith Permanent Alizarin Crimson, DaVinci Burnt Sienna, Viridian Green
- Watercolor paper – preferably Arches 140lb Cold Press cut to about 7″ x 11″ or so
