Watercolour Landscape 水彩风景

作为色彩教学中的水彩风景写生,是一门帮助学生理解和认识基本的构图、造型、色彩、审美等规律的有效方法。

水彩风景写生作为一门眼睛的艺术,是要把繁杂、百变的自然风景看成一幅画。观察建筑物空间构成关系,树木枝叶的线面关系,天、地、物的形状构成及色彩构成,从中寻找我们所要求的绘画空间和画面构成,最终在自己的脑海中形成一幅整体的画面景色。

 

水彩风景写生内容:通过实际风景写生,学习风景构图方法、远近距离表现、建筑物透视规律,山川、河流、树木、花朵、天空、云彩等景物的水彩画技法和表现。

水彩风景画具体画法:

1. 由远到近,分部进行法

水彩风景画,多从远到近、从浅到深、从虚到实进行渲染、描绘,这样容易掌握干湿与色彩和明暗层次,色阶的衔接过渡较自然、柔和,对初学者也更便于掌握。

2. 由近及远,层次推移法

在有些特殊情况下,如时间极为勿促,或早晚橙红色的阳光照射在险峻的绝壁与古刹上,出现一种神秘而绝妙的色彩与构图,那当然即应挥笔捉住这瞬间即逝的景象,首先定下光感与色彩在景物上的位置、对比强度及冷暖关系,而后调整形体,再从中景到远景、天空,这样反推移完成。很明显,这方法带有强烈的速写性,也须有一定绘画基础之后,才掌握得住。

3. 全面铺开,统筹兼顾法

这种画法,是先求“共性”,后求形象,要求有很强的整体观念和预见能力

所谓先求“共性”,就是由浅到深地先抓基本调子,即首先用浅色铺出受光面的最亮部分,留出高光,然后用最具有画面调子倾向的浅色由亮到暗。

 

所谓后求形象,是避免一开始就把注意力放到具体的形体结构细部上而冲淡了对色彩的观察与感受,这首先要求集中精力把最突出的色彩感受,用最果断的笔法全面铺开,把握瞬间的微妙色彩效果后,然后才在这色调与节奏的统一下,具体地刻划出主要景物的形体结构与形象特征,最后再经调整而完成。

Watercolour Life Drawing/Figure Drawing 水彩人物写生

  1. 头像:在画人物头像时,首先要注意面部的结构及肌肉的变化特征,抓住大的色调及冷暖关系,强调五官神态及微妙的色彩变化。画头发是不要只用单一的墨色来表现,要考虑环境色及淘汰色对头发的影响,强调冷暖色的对比。画的过程适当的加入一些褐色或普蓝色倾向的色彩,可使头发的生动而自然,还要注意干、湿画法的结合运用及高光的处理,画面的高光最好是留出纸的空白。
  2. 半身像和全身像:画半身像和全身像要处理好面部色彩与服装色彩之间的关系,注意手和脚的刻画,还应注意人物与背景的构图处理。肤色的变化直接受到服装面料的影响,要仔细的观察对比光源色及环境色对肤色的变化所起的作用,同时也要主动的处理好画面的主次巡视关系。
  3. 人体:用水彩表现人体是有相当大的难度的,要求你既要有严谨的造型能力,又要有色彩的丰富经验。我们要认真了解人体结构及肤色的变化特点,做的胸有成竹。一气呵成。
