Hello Sergey. I would like to draw a grapevine on the wall at home. Could you show step by step how to draw leaves, at least with one leaf as an example. ". Would be very grateful.
Hello, Natalia. Grape leaves - this is a very difficult task and much depends on technology. When I first drew them for the first time, I did not succeed at all. It is very useful to find good photos of grapes and carefully consider, study the structure, shape, etc. Or to look in live, to make a sketch in a pencil, then construction will be remembered. And then already clearly calculate the technique of drawing. Those. which layer will be the first, which will be the second, etc. If you draw technically, it is a few layers of drying. It all depends on the task, complexity, realistic picture. You can draw at a time, you can stages. Acrylic is more difficult to do, especially smooth transitions. I mainly paint with oil. For example, now at work there is a small piece with grape leaves in the wall paintings.
Here the main background is set, in my case it is a yellow spot. You can light, you can vice versa dark. Next is a clear drawing of leaves with a pencil. Following the pattern on a light background, the front leaves are smeared with a dark color, as seen in the photo below.
At this stage, the oil in the outline of the leaflet can make small stretch from green to yellow, from dark to light, so that it is diverse. You can also outline the veins. Below they are dark, because the sheet is transparent. Light from above. As said, look at the photo of the living leaves of the vine to understand how to draw. After everything is dry, you can apply the following layers - in the background you can mark the next leaves and veins. Highlight pieces of blue sky and bring the front. Bottom is always warm reflexes, and patina is applied on top with zinc white and it should be of a cold color.
At the end there are twigs, mustaches, etc. How everything dries out can liserovku (thin liquid layers of paint) to summarize the pieces. In any case, we need experience in drawing and a CLEAR miscalculation of each stage, and this only comes with experience. If the head will not build stages of drawing leaves of grapes, you get porridge. I made this piece in butter in three steps, at the end I will summarize a bit more. And of course it is important to fantasize, embellish a little, i.e. Do not draw clearly from the photo and do your own on the wall. Then nobody will compare with a photo)).
