Wind_Responsible

It's actually pretty easy. You just put both folders together and pick them up that way. If you I u pick up the color wrong, it's over. I do this for nail art all the time and I am not an artist lol


SkyPork

No kidding! Notice how perfectly that brush was loaded with two different colors? If I tried doing that something would catch fire.


TheHYPO

I'm not saying it's easy and doesn't require practice, but the technique (or at least a similar one) is called One Stroke painting. The main trick to the technique is having multiple colours on the brush, and the selection of the right brush/size. Here is what is labeled as a ["beginner" video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSr3xt7TXNc) Here's one that starts teaching the ["wiggling" technique](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYk6xpm8_BI) needed to make the leaves and things. My mother learned and the taught this technique for many years and it's not as hard as it looks because of the multiple colours on the brush. My house was full of a LOT of flowers and leaves - because that's primarily what the technique is good for.


veronica05250

Is your mom Donna Dewberry?


TheHYPO

No, but a follower.


Raspberry_Good

No, but a flowerer.


TheMightyWoofer

> Donna Dewberry Thank you! The art reminded me of her work because I remember seeing her videos and watching her sell her artbooks on the shopping channel (in Canada, anyway--I bought some of them), but I couldn't remember her name.


Penguin_shit15

I was actually going to post pretty much what you wrote. I have been painting since i was maybe 16 or so.. am 45 now. I learned one stroke painting from a book because it was years before there were ever Youtube videos on it. I think there was a guy on PBS before or after Bob Ross when he was originally airing that showed this method. It actually IS just about as easy as it looks once you practice just a bit. You can do butterflies this way too and pretty much any flower. You really just have to have the right brushes for the job. I use an angled brush mostly, but a flat will to the trick also. Depending on the flower type, a round will do the trick as well, although you load it differently.


cannycandelabra

My group of friends and I got together and tried this. Bought the brushes, bought paints, practiced together and failed spectacularly. We tried wine making next. Best change of goal ever!


Penguin_shit15

It also greatly depends on what kind of paint you are using too. Needs to be fairly opaque and I usually prefer a thick bodied paint for this. However, I have achieved very good results with the cheap "Apple Barrel" paint you can get at Walmart for 54 cents a bottle. Also, the pigments need to be of the brighter variety. Using black or a darker background really helps too. There are a ton of videos on Youtube of how to do this. Its funny, you are not the only one to turn to wine making when their other artsy skills didnt work out... *looks at Jesus being a carpenter.. although neither worked out for him in the end. *(i'm going to hell.. lol)


cannycandelabra

Lol! Whatever paint it was we bought was a brand promoted by one of those crafty experts. Glad Jesus was guiding us.


BasuraFujira

I remember watching “Donna Dewberry” on PBS and she painted JUST like that.


sheep_heavenly

Speaking of Bob Ross, I'm fairly sure that's how he did the rocks usually? Loading the brush with the base color + highlight and then dabbing it on, more or less. It's usually what friends ask me about when they see his videos, it's very impressive to see if you don't paint. Just instant realistic rocks.


Penguin_shit15

I think you are probably correct. With all the liquid white all over the canvas you can achieve a lot of crazy blending effects with minimal effort. But yeah, rocks and cliffs, even trees can be done with this method. Any time you are doing a tree have a dark brown and a light brown on each side of the brush, even dab a little white on the very corner.. instant tree with highlights. And also speaking of Bob Ross.. if you have not seen Deadpool Bob Ross, then you need to.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-Cjsnq8kVU

therealnaddir

That's coz you are trying to draw a flower. Title is misleading, its a cabbage.


photomotto

How to draw a cabbage: Step 1: draw a rose Step 2: paint it green


Ni7roM

I know that reference! leonardopointing.jpg


kingkongbananakong

A cabbage is a flower


natephant

Well. The “real skill” is in properly loading the brush. I can hand you a properly loaded brush and while I’m sure it won’t look as good, you would be able to immediately see the effect, and probably manage a decent leaf. After a few minutes of fooling around, I’m sure you would be able to produce good looking leaves and flowers. After that it’s just repeating the process until you’re a master at it.


demon_fae

The good news is that you’re now very well positioned to create a Pollock-esque *masterpiece*, which is exactly as easy as it looks.


trystanr

Unfortunately you have to actually _be_ Pollock for it to be worth anything.


surle

It's alright, I'll teach you. The leaf shape goes "Blobby, Blobby, swish". Got that? Let's do another one. Blobby. Blobby. Swish. Good. Now the flower's a little more advanced, but you can start off the same as the leaves, just a bit smaller, and blue. blueby. blueby. blueby. blueby. blueby. blueby. blueby. blueby. Now in the middle, you don't want blobbies, that would be ridiculous. It goes wibble, wibble, wibble, wibble, wibble, wibble, bloop. You're an artist now. Tomorrow we'll try jellyfish, or potatoes.


flowersatdusk

Very, very easy.


ChiquitaBannaner

I learned how to do this style of painting when I was a kid! The trick that I think most people are missing is that if you just load with two colors, it'll come out a bit streaky and not as smooth and radiant as the OP. The trick is to use a clear medium after you load your brush with the colors. That'll make it very smooth and really pop! But not too much clear medium!


Nerddymama

Back in the Bob Ross days there was an artist that had a similar show and taught this technique. I believe they called it one touch painting.


GyurHairSmlsTerific

Donna Dewberry. My mom was obsessed and took all her classes.


Nerddymama

Thanks! I knew I’d never remember her name because I was just a kid but I remember watching them on PBS and trying to follow along.


MrPandamania

She has a YouTube channel and still posts! https://youtu.be/Jr-yUmdrfj4


TraumaHandshake

Thanks for this.


razordoilies

My mom got really into painting wine glasses to sell at the church craft fairs in this style lol


citydreef

That’s oddly specific


razordoilies

Sure is! She saw them at a different craft fair and loved it


tylercreatesworlds

lmao, same. I remember when my mom came back from one of her classes and taught me and my brothers how to do this.


GlitterPants8

I swear she sold videos on how to do it on QVC.


ChiquitaBannaner

I'm pretty sure my mom had a subscription box from her. Like, once a month or so she would get a box of paints, brushes, and an instruction booklet. Or maybe she just got a few kits? I remember we had dozens of those boxes! I also used one to submit a painting when I was in 4-H and got first place for my rose!


deep_crater

My dad had a few how to sheets and the paint. He followed along and did a lot of nice decorations on plant pots and vases. We still have some too.


werkytwerky

yep. I took some too, then there were scheduling conflicts and they cancelled.


bestofluck29

its called one stroke painting. I used to take painting classes on this


JustJules3

I was thinking the same thing! On PBS, I used to watch Bob Ross then after was this lady who painted like this.


HaroldPayne61

Why does this look like it


claramill

It's a simple technique, just loading two colors on the same paint brush and off you go.


solarsystemandbarbQ

I want to know how they get the paint so perfectly on the brush with two different colors


sheep_heavenly

Use a flat edged paintbrush, and either angle the brush to dip each corner in paint, carefully pick up paint only on the side you want, or lazily plop both paints together on the paint plate and adjust your dip to how much of each color you want. Last method let's you pick up 3 or more colors if you're careful when you put it on the plate.


LovelyRS

I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT THIS and was wondering if anyone in the comments would ask!! That show was the first thing I thought of when I saw the technique but just completely forgot the title.


librarycatlady

I used to come home from school every day, grab my snack and juice box, and sit at my tiny tv and just watch Donna and Bob Ross and refuse to start my homework. I was, clearly, a cool kid.


ScumbagLady

Sounds cool to me! I watched The Wonder Years everyday before school, and most the time I was unable to finish watching and would go to school very stressed about Winnie and Kevin relationship drama.


sparkysmomjuju

One step painting!


Freduccine

I wanna see how they are applying the paint to the brush


Werekittie

Google Donna Dewberry! Years ago she had a TV program on PBS(I think) teaching this technique. There were books you could buy as well.


Freduccine

Awesome thank you for the recommendation


Werekittie

You are most welcome!


MadMaudlin25

I immediately recognized the technique because I used to watch One Stroke Painting every Saturday on PBS.


RoguePotatoChip

Exactly. When I load my brushes, the paint mixes more than this. That’s the technique I want to see (although this was very pretty to watch!)


ThrowawaySaint420

She uses a separating pallet to achieve this. https://youtu.be/7uCe1zx-kE0


RoguePotatoChip

Looks like I will be purchasing a “double loading carousel!” Thank you for sharing!


animeari

I actually tried a similar technique a while back. I put the two colors on my pallet with a big flat brush and smeared them in a line next to each other so that half my brush had each color. You just have to make sure when you take more paint you’re running your brush in the same direction each time.


ThrowawaySaint420

https://youtu.be/7uCe1zx-kE0


betarded

Seriously, the brush strokes aren't the hard part, it's the two-tone brush setup (not sure if that is what it's called, but it sounds good, so I'm sticking with it).


Freduccine

Check out the video another user replied with. They use a tool called a "double loading carousel". It's super clever and simple


Bowiedood

Same!


dueytk

My mom used to paint these flowers on my nails. Such a simple and beautiful technique.


onlyupliftingcomment

bruh you must got some big nails


dueytk

Lol my mom has special tiny nail brushes


wolfgang784

Meanwhile Im still failing to get an even coat half the time and get it on my fingers too lol.


camo_216

Meanwhile I’m still only able to draw scuffed stick figures


wolfgang784

On your nails? I doubt I could even do stick figures. Maybe if I had these tiny nail kits, im talkin bout failing with normal polish n normal sized brush lol.


Witchy_washy

My mom also does this type of nail art, here is an example https://i.imgur.com/ImiOib8.jpg


DarkXlll

She absolutely nailed it


dueytk

Those designs are lovely!


camo_216

No I don’t decorate my nails


wolfgang784

Missin out buddy =p Go snag some hot pink, confidence booster.


kalitarios

you laugh. I'm a guy who paints his nails. I get a lot of compliments too... why should women be the only ones to accessorize or color match?


ArgonGryphon

She probably uses acrylic paint, I don't think this technique works with nail polish. Once you put on the top coat you can't tell it's paint, or not easily anyway.


payne_train

Not a very uplifting comment my dude


PersnicketyKeester

It looks simple. It is not simple.


xrumrunnrx

Love how they handle the transition from outer to inner petals. I've always found that tricky with even basic drawing.


lnamorata

Mmm, brain tingles. Very pretty painting, too.

Rock555666

I want to say Asian possibly Chinese artisans….but who “they” was consumed my every thought watching this like such odd wording lol. Edit: it’s Chinese characters as someone below pointed out edited to correct. If y’all think that I’m saying OP is racist cool your jets, I’m simply saying I’d have liked to know what I was watching in greater detail than they, such as what type of art style or technique is being displayed.


aortm

Its Chinese. 叶 isn't used in Japan.


Q1189998819991197253

Chinese, going by the music


tofuloafu

*They* are the person painting. That word can be used to describe a group of people, or one single person. Usually it is used for respect when you don't know their proper pronoun such as he/her, but it is overall a grammatically correct pronoun when used in a non plural context.


Glitch200X

But they didn't go anywhere after painting the flower.


ragn4rok234

What they don't show is the patience to let it dry before going over it again


teaseapea

For anyone interested in the technique, check out videos of Donna Dewberry and her one stroke painting method. She used to have a show on PBS


AnonymousCustomer123

My shaky hands would end up making random smears. Then, my OCD self would try and correct those smears, resulting in a big blob.


BrockThrowaway

Well, even OP has one smear that shows up around the :39 mark.
