Technique for the execution of flowers in the city's painting One of the most distinctive artisticthe murals on the tree is the town's painting. This folk-applied creativity arose and successfully developed in the old Russian city on the Volga called Gorodets. Traditional urban motifs, motifs decorating handicrafts and souvenirs made of wood, are still appreciated by their inimitable coloring and a variety of floral ornaments. Flower garlands made by the city's painting in conjunction with other traditional elements of this decorative art, can decorate any souvenir or hand-made articles of wood that you want to do yourself. Any work, painted with urban technique, necessarily includes the presence of floral ornaments, since the old Russian masters considered flowers a symbol of health. There are several types of colors, the drawing of which must be mastered first.
Main types of flowers
The figure that we see shows the mainfour types of flowers, found in the city list - bud, rose, rose and chamomile. For the execution of flowers we will need - a sheet of paper, a simple pencil, a paint (gouache) of cherry color and a brush. On a white sheet of paper draw four circles. The first circle is a bit smaller in diameter than the three following. Now we take a brush and with the help of a paint we create specks of a round color on each of the circles. These specks are usually called spouts of flowers. On the first and second circles, the spouts should be placed on the side, and on the third and fourth circles - on the center. Next, draw all four flowers, as shown in the picture, performing petals with the same color paint. From the first circle we make a bud. We create an arc along its circumference. In this case, we try to keep the brush perpendicular to the surface on which the pattern is applied. We start to make an arc, hardly having touched a tip of a working brush to a paper. Then increase the pressure on the brush so that a smooth volumetric transition is obtained. We finish the arc very thinly, again using the tip of the brush. The resulting arc should have a shape similar to a young moon. We will turn the next circle into a rose. For this draw a similar arc, but we do not have it on the edge, but in the central part of the circle. On the edge of the second circle we create petals. We draw them in the same way as an arc, only with a smaller size, placing one next to the other. On the circumference of the third circle we paint only petals, as in a rose. We get a rose. The fourth circle is the chamomile. Here we will use another technique. We need to draw droplets around the flower spout, which is located in the center of the circle. Droplets are done with a brush using the "priming" method. So, we learned how to draw petals of four kinds of flowers, decorating them in the technique of the city's mural. Now you should draw them on paper or wood surface of the future souvenir, following them according to the rules from the beginning to the end. If you have to draw an ornament consisting of a large number of colors, you can make templates of circles that you need in size, using the compasses. These templates can be used in the work, thereby simplifying the task. The execution of flowers in the technique of urban painting are divided into three steps.
A colored circle that will serve as the basisany Gorodets flower, is called podmalevok. In order to master urban painting, you need to learn how to paint the four kinds of flowers listed above. By changing their color range, you can achieve the impression that a large number of colors are involved in the drawing. In the traditions of the city's mural for the execution of colors, use the paint of red, cherry, pink, blue and blue colors. You can also draw a brown or black color. It should be remembered that in carrying out the work in the technique of urban painting in the picture, the flowers of blue and blue must be present, occupying no more than one-fourth of the ornament. Also, they may not be at all.
Pointing of petals
When we painted the mugs we neededcolors (podmalevki) give gouache time to dry. Then we begin to draw petals, depending on the colors that you want to depict. On the pink podmalevke petals can lead red, on blue - blue. In general, the guidance of the petals is always carried out with a darker contrasting paint.
At the third stage of drawing a flower, we willperform livenings. For this we need art brushes №2 or №3, as well as white gouache. In order to carry out the livenings, you need to gently wipe the tip of the brush in a white gouache, and then start decorating the flowers with dots and elastic strokes. To start, you should arrange white dots in the center of the nozzles of all colors. Then you need to make a fringing from the dots at the noses of chamomiles and rosants, and spout the roses and buds to circle, creating a white arch. Finish the lively graceful strokes that need to be applied to roses. Thus, your flowers will be drawn completely. If you have decided to learn real Gorodets painting, which has for 150 years pleased our view with its originality and inimitable color, one should adhere to the traditional rules of decorative painting when choosing flowers and performing livenings. Thus, not only will you learn the rules of the old Russian craft, but also extend the life of true folk art.
