How To Paint Using Only Deceit and Paper Towels.

如何只用晕染和纸巾来画画


sun set

This (above) is the September sun set that I want to paint for you today. I chose it because it's got two of my favorite things (to paint) in it: clouds, and diagonals. It's got diagonal clouds: a two-fer!

这(如上)是我今天想为你画的《九月夕阳》。我选择它是因为它有两个我最喜欢画的东西:云和对角线。它有斜云:赚翻了!

I'm going to use two techniques for this painting. Ha ha. I said “Techniques”.

我要用两种技术来作画。哈哈。我说的是“技术”。

There are two gimmicks that I'll use for this painting, my two favorite gimmmicks: First, I like to use a bleed. That's when I put two very wet colors next to each other and let them flow into one another, like this:

在这幅画上,我会用两个我最喜欢的技术:第一,我喜欢使用晕染。当我把两个水分非常足的颜色画得相邻,让他们互相渗透,像这样:


晕染


The other thing that I like to do when I paint clouds is to do a nice dark wash of sky color (in this case, blue) and then use a rolled-up piece of paper towel to sponge up some paint, as much as I can, off the surface of the watercolor paper.  Like this:

当画云的时候,我喜欢做的另一件事,是刷好天空的颜色(这里是蓝色),然后使用卷起的纸巾吸走一些颜料,尽可能多地从水彩纸的表面吸走颜料。就像这样:


纸巾吸颜料


The trick is to dab the rolled up piece of paper towel onto the wet watercolor paint as soon as possible — like a nano-second after you've swabbed the paint all over.

诀窍是,尽可能的快,将卷起来的纸巾放在湿的水彩颜料上——就像是在你刷完颜料后,一毫秒内放纸巾。

For the September sun set that I'll be painting today, I'm going to divide the picture into three zones:

对于今天要画的《九月太阳》,要把画面分成三个区域:


分区


So, let us begin.

所以,让我们开始吧。

1. Zone 1, with rolled-up paper towel clouds:

1. 第一个区域,用卷起的纸巾画云:


第一个区域


Let dry.

等它干了。

For Zones 2 and 3, I'll do bleeds. I'll brush the lower part of the painting with water, and then start layering in the sun set hues very quickly, letting them bleed into one another delicately. . .

对于第二三区域,我会晕染。先用水刷画面下半部分,然后从太阳下开始,很快地一层层地画,让颜色彼此渗透……


第二三区域晕染


I only got a photo of the first layer, a yellow wash. I had to paint this part very quickly, while the paper was still nice and wet, so I didn't have time to get photos of the whole process. But here's what I did:

我只拍了一张照片,第一层刷的黄色。我必须快速画这部分,趁着纸张还好还湿,所以我没有时间去拍整个过程的照片。但这里演示我的做法:


晕染演示


From the bottom up, I brushed on a layer of light yellow and yellow ochre mixed together, then a little light orange, then some light red, and then magenta. (I'm using the names of the paints in my beloved  Grumbacher paint set — the “light red” looks dark orange to me, and the “magenta” looks like pink when it's diluted with a lot of water.)

从下到上,我刷上第一层淡黄色和黄赭石​​混合色,第二层一点点橙色,第三层一些浅红色,第四层是洋红色。 (我用心爱的Grumbacher颜料套装中的名称——“浅红色”对我来说看起来是深橙色,当用大量的水稀释时“洋红色”看起来像粉红色。)

The I dabbed in dark blue zig-zaggy layer on the middle part (to make the underside of the clouds) and I made it pretty wet, too, to let the water take an effect. Then I sat back and let gravity and Grumbacher paints do their magic:

在中间部分,用深蓝色呈锯齿状地轻拍画上(为了画下面的云),我混合了很多水,也让水发挥效果。然后我坐下来,等重力和颜料玩魔法:


中间层


Now it's time to do Zone 4, the make-believe tree line:

现在是画第四区的时候了,天际线的树影:


I like to paint my tree-line black. There's something about a black tree-line that is a tiny bit melancholy, and a beautiful September sun set  is a bit melancholy, so my September sun set will have a black tree-line, like this:

我喜欢用黑色画树影。黑色的树影令人有点忧郁,九月一个美丽的落日有点忧郁,所以我的九月夕阳将有一个黑色的树影,像这样:



So.

所以。

Now that it's done, I can assess what I've got here.

现在算完成了,我可以评价一下已经画好的。

Well, I like the diagonal sweep of the cloudy sky. I LOVE  that part of the cloud that is just Canson watercolor paper showing through a very thin layer of wash.

好吧,我喜欢有对角线的、多云的天空。我喜欢云的那部分,在康颂水彩纸上非常薄的刷一层来呈现。

But I do not like that weird pointy bit of blue on the right hand side…see it? It is an upside-down triangle shape ? But all is not lost!  I know how to disguise it!

但我不喜欢看到右边那个奇怪的蓝色尖角?它是一个倒三角形?但一切并没有完!我知道如何掩饰它!

Hell — my whole raison d'etre as a painter is to fudge my shortcomings as an artist. Disguise is my middle name!

天呢——作为一个画家的理由是把一个艺术品的缺点掩盖。掩饰是我的别称!

So here is the finished picture:

所以完成图是这样的:


完成图

Do you see any strange-looking blue triangles anywhere? NO?

你看到任何奇怪的蓝色三角形吗? 没有了?

I dare say that I got away with it.

我敢说我已经丢掉它了。


苏珊姐说

翻译得一塌糊涂,好多词不知道怎么表达,直接用原意显然是不对的,比如欺骗、对角线、中间名等等,跪求高手指点。

话说Vivian是非常幽默非常机智的画家,能把一幅本来不太满意的作品调整成还不错的结果,手动点赞。很显然,她把画的最底下裁剪了一截,再画上树的剪影,简直棒呆了。

不过也有没有讲清楚的地方,就是中间晚霞怎么画,其实是没讲清楚的,苏珊姐和亲们一起尝试去吧,祝大家好运。
