This time I will doa view of Machu Picchu, Peru.
I start by making a pencil silhouette ofthe main mountain, the mountain in the background and the meadow in front.
I apply very gently in pencil the shape of the clouds to have a guide at the time of giving the color.
About the color I have to work on wet when doing the clouds and this makes me have towork very fast, so having a guide helps a little to stick to theshapes.
I continue to make the silhouette of the mountains in the background.
The profile of the clouds must be verysoft, with a pencil not very greasy and that stain little so that later it does not staymarked on the paper.
On the white clouds, any trace ofpencil below may be marked.
Now I start to make the sky.
Since I want it to be quite uniform I will first moisten all areas of the sky, mountains and all the part of the upper third of the leaf.
I moisten it well with water and once it's completely moistenedI'm going to use a mixture of blue and some violet to paint the areas abovein the sky.
I try to keep it a little darker gradient on the part ofabove getting lost towards the lower point.
I am moving the paper and curving it so that there are no ripples on the paper, and all the pigment is distributedevenly.
As it dries I am adding more blue in thetop to make it darker.
By moving the paper we can getthe color more evenly distributed and focus more on the bottom, the down side of the paper.
With the force of gravitycolor goes there with a little patience.
With a toilet paper roll, a kleenexdry and clean, I am opening a little the cloud shapes when the blue is still a little dry.
So I am giving a little shape to the sky.
Now I am adding a little color, a very pale blue in the area below the clouds to add a little volume.
This can be done while the white is still wet, and colors can blend well.
While I'm doing this, I'mcontrolling how the rest of the sky goes and I'm correcting the areas that seem to dry in a way that doesn't interest me.
Now I moisten the whole bottom, the part where the green meadow is, to give the background green color and get everything uniform.
Now I'm going to start moistening the entire area at the bottom of the mountains, to give a uniform color to all that area.
I'm going to first give a deep bluish violet color on the dark side, all the area butalways keeping in mind that I have some clouds that I have to reserve andleave that blank so that the clouds look white.
In this case, the two areas ofbackground mountains are very separated.
One to the left of the main peak ofMachu Picchu and another on the right.
So while we do themasses on the left you may notice the area to the right has dried alittle and should be moistened again while we are working on it.
Creating this whole background with clouds is along and laborious work that needs to be done while everything is wet and ifwe see that it is drying it is convenient to moisten it.
All edge areasof the clouds may be initually too contrasted, the edges couldlook too sharp.
Then you have to add some water melting the edge of the clouds and it is important that there is enough contrast between the background and the clouds, so as you dry the color of background can be contrasted a little more, giving another layer and intensifying the color until we get a colorquite contrasted with the background, that make the clouds stand out a lot.
It is convenient, once thebackground color dries, to intensify all the parts, specially the top part and mark the silhouette of the mountains in a very sharp way, so that you can notice a little contrast of the silhouette of up the mountain and the separations thatthere are between the mountains and the clouds.
We are now going to start coloring the entire area of the mountains.
In this case I am going to work on dry because it is a mountain with many contrasts, vertical strips of rock and trees.
So I'm going to start working thebrownish area, the area where you can see a little more the rock behind, and I'm doing it with shades of brownmixed with shades of blue to achieve a little gray.
The left part of the main peak has a very pronounced shadow, which I am going to intensify by adding a littleultramarine blue, violet, brown to make a fairly dark gray that gives us enough volume throughout the left area of the mountain.
In all the right part of the mountainthere is a lot more vegetation, so I'm going to be giving a greener shade.
About this part, as there are already clouds here, clouds that also enter the mountain from the bottom, we must continue a little bit the shape of the cloud with thatslightly blurred edge that It is achieved by working on wet.
So in those specific areas you can give a little bit of clean water and then give the colorgreen so that the edges of the clouds are quite blurred.
This first layer of green will surely become, when it has dried, too soft, so it's good to gointensifying the shadow a little more dark and in this way give it alsothe slightly rough shape of the vegetation in all that part of the mountain.
We start now with the small mountain, the smallest peak.
This peak also has a visible area of rock that we will make a little brown greyish and another part of vegetation that we will do in green.
We can give a first layer of green a little softer and then adda little volume with dark green in a random way to recreate the volumeof vegetation.
Once we have finished the entire areain the mountains in the background we can add some greenery, a little bit darker, to the meadow area.
There will be bushes, and some tiny tree, although there are few, and then we can go and add a little green to all the right bottom area at the forst outside the city of Machu Picchu, and we can also make a tree.
There is only one tree in the middle of the meadow, down in themedium part.
Here we can make the trunk with marker and then we will color all the treetop with a brush, with a dark enough green to make it stand out over the meadow area.
We can start now with all the construction areas, buildings that are on the meadow.
For this we use a light ocher color withwhich we are going to fill the entire area with buildings, yet with a uniform light colorto later give shadows and give it a little volume.
Once all the areas of thebuildings that we have colored in pale ocher is dry, we can adda dark brown color at all the shades that are in the buildings, which will allow us to give a little volume to all those masses of ocher that we have finished although by the moment they do not outstand well.
Once the entire drawing is drywe can give some details with fine marker pen not only for the dark shadows of the drawing but also add people, people whoare drawn by drawing a vertical line slightly thicker and a round point that symbolizes the head.
We can make several people who are walking around, alone or in a group and this will add a little life to the drawing.
And with this we finish the drawing.
I hope you liked it and I wait for you in the next video.
