painting steps:

1. Ground Horizontal strokes - warm colors

Start with white, cadmium yellow and red. Start from the centre by adding horizontal strokes of white. Gradually blend it in with yellow, and slowly mix yellow with red to create a orange tone. In the first layer, we are working only with the warm colors.

I used a flat brush edge to create the horizontal lines.


2. background criscross strokes- warm colors

Now using the same flat brush, add flat and short strokes in a criss-cross way on the top, which is going to be the leaves of the trees. Again, just like the previous step, start with lighter shades of white and yellow and gradually add the red and mix with yellow.


3. Ground Horizontal strokes - cool Colors

We do not want the warm colors and the cool colors to mix, because they will end up creating muddy colors on the canvas. So give some time for the previous 2 layers to dry and then repeat step 1 with the cool colors. Start with white and teal blue, and gradually bring in prussian blue and mix it with teal blue.


4. Background CrisCross strokes - cool Colors

Here we repeat step 2 – add the flat criss cross strokes with the flat brush using the cool colors.


5. Background Cris-Cross strokes - multi Colors

In the previous step, you would notice that there are some gaps left in between the color strokes. Now fill it in with green and purples. Basically we are create the 2 secondary colors – green by mixing blue and yellow, purple by mixing red and blue, and add some strokes in between to fill up the enitre canvas.


6. outline the couple

Take a print out of the couple outline. And then trace it on your painting using a carbon paper.


7. the couple - part 1

We will use the same colors from the background to create the couple, to keep the painting cohesive. I’ve shown it absolutely bit by bit, for you to paint it. 


8. The Couple - Part 2

After painting the dresses, use mostly black to paint the pant of the man and also color the hair of both of them.


9. The Couple - Part 3

In this step we add the skin color, the umbrella and the shoe of the lady.


10. trees on the left + the reflections

Now we add the tree trunks on the left with black. While painting the tree, add the reflection by moving your brush in a zig zag pattern.


11. Lamp posts on the right + the reflections

After the tree trunks have dried, you can add some of the initial criss cross strokes of the leaves on top of the branches. In the last step, we add the lamp posts on the right and also add their reflections.

And that’s it… just by following these 11 steps, you can now created your very own  roamantic couple landscape painting.
