Too Long Didn't Read: First ... Five: paint with acrylic the underpainting tone that will be shown... under your painting Hello painters! My name is Alai  and today I want to answer my most asked question I want to use these panels  from here to demonstrate you why underpainting colors make a difference. And for that, I am going to use... This cute... Plushie from here The plan I am going to use my most liked bases,  plus one white, with no underpainting I want to paint the same object but adding some interest The plan is the following Two for the pink side; one with a similar  underpainting color, one with the opposite one Two for the blue side; one with  underpainting, the other one without And for fun; changing the face of  this one, to be like this emoji and the face of this one, to be like this other one Set up This is my painting setup. I am going to  copy the octopus from there, but I have the iPad here with the four little faces so it's  easier for me to copy the faces like i want to
01:34
And this is the palette that I'm using today Some medium, some turpentine and my brushes I am going to use this acrylic from here to  do the sketch part With a fine flat brush Sketching And now I want to prepare my mixes, at  least the main ones... One pink... I don't usually go for the exact tone. We can add some interest with yellow ochre Yep. It's going to be our lights and I am going to make one for the shadows Not going darker but add in the  complementary color. For example, this one The color is going to desaturate a bit,  maybe going to purple or some violet Yep. I want to be sketchy this time so I'm going to  use flat large brushes like this one,... Maybe this... ᕕ(⌐■_■)ᕗ ♪♬ ᕕ(⌐■_■)ᕗ ♪♬ One thing I love about these dark and saturated  underpainting colors, is that you can see...
03:59
The... The underpainting not only through the gaps that  are visible, but also through the painting This is an opaque brush stroke and this from here is a  transparent one. You can see the blue underneath I am going to use blue and  yellow here, just a pinch of ochre... Maybe this is too much... For the lights If you don't want to mix the paint You can add a bit of medium to make it lighter  and thinner and gently put it onto the painting Here... And you can see the difference.  You know that it's still pink, but it adds some interest, for the painting And the same with blue. And again white and just a bit of And this is going to be our cool highlight
06:02
When I want to add some interest to the paintings, I use some colors that aren't necessarily there For example, I have this pink plushie and I'm adding blue and yellow The easiest way to do that is by using the analogous colors. For example, if you are painting the blue plushie; you can use the blue color but the green for highlights and  the violets for shadows or, if you are painting an orange; you can use the orange for base, the yellow for highlights and the red one for shadows I'm going to mix my black... With ultramarine, burnt umber and... A bit of red (っ^з^)♪♬ Before I show you the results of the four paintings, I want to focus on the importance of the contrast here Take a look at this clip. I painted the second   pink version with exact same color mixes I had from the first. It looks grey, doesn't it? Because of that, I ended up switching to  blue for some dark parts, as you can see.

Same with pink. This is the same pink I used  in the first painting, but looks off So, i had to saturate it a bit All of this is because of the contrast against the background As a result, I ended up having a more saturated octopus in the second version, even though they are the same color (๑•́ ヮ •̀๑) Conclusions After a lot of paintings, I have now my own conclusions. -One: pink and yellow, or similars, add a lot of warmth to the painting -Two: I don't usually like using the same color of underpainting that my object has,  as you saw in the example with the octopus For example, painting portraits in pink bases I don't usually like that, so the teal is like my joker color. I use teal for painting everything that is... Warm -Three: weird is not bad. Sometimes I love to use the transparency that the paint has to leave the underpainting even more visible -Four: they add unexpected colors that can be fun
09:46
I used to cover all the spots in the canvas when I was at uni like I had OCD... Covering every inch of the canvas, every fiber... But now I love to have these little happy accidents For example, you can see the underpainting and the sketch -Five: it removes the white canvas syndrome A new white canvas can be *intimidating for some people Painting that base colors before the painting session already removes that pressure And -Six: it forces me to compete against its vibrancy When I painted the octopus in the pink underpainting you saw that some of the pinks looked like grey So, I needed to force those pinks to be more saturated and the result is that I have more vibrant paintings And now, I do the same in my digital paintings too but, as I don't have to buy any acrylics for that, I experiment more freely with the colors I hope you have enjoyed this mini painting session In next video I am going to show how I sketch for helping me in my paintings and I am going to demonstrate it with another painting session
