We use paper tape to take andConnect the four sides of the paper to the work table or tablet. The paper grabbing element should be about 1 centimeter. Firmly fix the papers so that after you make your drawing, it could get wet and dry without losing quality (deformation). Preparing the balls To start, you should drawNew Year's ball. Of course, multi-colored balls of glass always become the main design elements for the New Year. First, you need to draw a simple circle. It is best to do this element by hand. But, if you can not do what you want to do, you can use the stroke of the necessary round object: for example the bottom of a glass, or a cup, another round object. Then, on the balls you need to prepare the elements of the ornament. In this case, everything depends entirely on what you come up with. Therefore, as a basic sample, you can take the options of beautiful, old jewelry toys. We use the upper right corner of the postcard,to leave the place of the text of congratulations. After, make a mixing of the palette of yellow ocher and water. The consistency element must reach the watery layer. The color will be very bright. For this stage of work, let's take a column brush, which will become the main tool for painting certain elements of toys. Next, we repeat the previous stage of the work, but as a design element we choose green paint. It also needs to be diluted with a palette, to the condition of a watery mixture, with a saturated color. After, it is necessary to paint ornaments on our toys, as well as in the picture. Here you can not spare paint and it is desirable to spendas much as possible, especially for a large ball. It will stand out from the background of others and attract attention to itself. Then, again, we need to repeat all the actions that we described above, but this time use the scarlet paint. While working on painting the ornament, as well as strips, you need to be extremely careful that the paint does not come out of the line. Scarlet and other shade can give a dirty blot. We wait until all the layers are dried. After, we proceed to the next step of working on the background fill. Background Fill We need to take a squirrel brush. It will need to be dipped into the water in a pure form and gently moisten the product that is around the Christmas tree toys. We work with blue shades. To do this, you need to dump the brush into the blue paint, and lightly touching the paper soaked in water, add the paint element. Awesome work! You yourself will create interesting, picturesque variations of divorce. Also, you should pay attention to the fact that the background image around the ball elements should have bright, saturated colors, and moving away from them to the sides, the background should fade slightly, lose its color. If it so happens that during the processdecorations on your drawing appeared too many watery spots, you need to take a brush and roll towels. Then, the brush is dried with a paper cloth, and after that, an extra part of the water is collected, which we do not need at work. Further, for the basis of the work, it is required to take a fine-colored column bone. For this stage, you should also fill in each blank, get rid of all the irregularities, as well as the contours of the balls, using the same background blue paint. Ending In order to complete the work, it is necessary toprocess the outline of our drawing. It is very important to refine each contour of Christmas tree decorations, make them more precise and accurate. Thus, the work gets a complete look. For focusing, use the service of a black gel pen. We circle with each gel ball. And after that, we draw strings, where our conditional balls hang down.
