Hey you! Yeah you! Do you want to see what’s inside this mystery art supply box ScrawlrBox? You-
You don’t? Oh. Uhm… Well, bye then. Just kidding, hah! What a good gag. Let’s get into unboxing this mystery art supply box. Here we go. You know the first thing I see? This purple… Scrawlr box logo sticker. I can accept it. I guess because it’s more on the earthy side. So let’s go ahead and get all our art supplies out. Oh my gosh, I see paint. And let’s take a peek here. Is this part of the art supply? I’m going to get this out just in case. If I can get it out. Here we go. So here is our print of the month by the artist of the month who is Katie Jobling, I think. Joe-bling? So here is our list of supplies for this month, July. And this is really cool! They supply you with what looks like a business card, but it’s actually like your own DIY palette knife sort of thing. So you cut off one of the edges and you can use it to paint and apply paint to your canvas. That is really cool and really cute. It’s very thick and sturdy. I’m just going to put that over here. But first let’s review our candy. We have a… vidal Lollipop. Let’s test it out. And by test it I mean… taste. Okay. So as I suspected it was very sour. I think this blue raspberry flavor, but you know what? I like sour. Let’s get into it. We have our paints. We have Cobra artist water mixable oil paints in…. “Ultramarine” “Primary magenta” “Titanium white” So there you go. We can make purple out of these colors. I’m-
I’m telling you guys I’ve never used oil so I’m very scared but I’m so excited to finally try it and that’s what these boxes are for. Ooh what’s this? We have a zon custom flat synthetic Universal brush branded with the scrawlr box a logo. That is super adorable. Nice small little brush. Feels like a brush. Next up we have the most adorable tiny little canvas.
The primed stretched canvas panel. Here’s our little canvas. Super tiny. Super cute. I think I’m actually not going to swatch our supplies and we’re just going to get into it. Later when I get to arting. For now, we have one more thing. We have… our Derwent sketching pencil. Graphic 2B. There we go And of course we do have our palette knife card, which I still think is super adorable and very clever. I love that. A nice little tiny pocket thing you can put in your wallet take it with you. Though I guess oil isn’t the best thing to do on the go because it takes so long to dry. Oh, and it looks like that paper is something. This is a palette paper 45 GSM. This special paper sheet is a vegetable parchment. Wow. So it looks like this is a piece of paper that you can use as a palette and you can mix on it and also save your paint on. That is super cool, and I can’t wait to try that out either. Alright. Is this it? Is this all of our supplies? And I might actually end up busting out my own canvas. Just because having one little tiny teeny weeny little thing to work is kind of sad. I might want to do more. So I’ve got another canvas just because I have canvas on me. And with that, let’s see what our… monthly challenge is. It is “abstract floral”. Alright. Here we go.
Oils. Oils? Oils. So I’m going to do some sketching on this paper. We’re gonna cut our card, we’re going to do some swatching and… I’m scared, but we’re just-
We’re gonna get into it. Alright first things first. Let’s cut this card and I think I’m just going to cut along… where they suggested cutting. I like this, it’s fun. It’s fun. Does it sound like I’m having fun? Or should I just watch first? I was gonna say before we get to sketching Wow, I don’t know what I’m doing. Let’s just watch our colors and see what’s up. I’m scared, but you know Let’s just- let’s just do it. We’ll just get a little bit and then blend them into each other and you know see what we’re all about. Like I said, this is actually my first experience using oil paints ever. Like ever ever. Never touched them before. They feel a lot less goofier than acrylic so I kind of like that aspect about it. I’m just not super in love with the whole three to five days to dry situation. Not my jam. I like to finish art pieces and like one sitting. I think there’s just this whole thing about oils needing a lot more care with cleanup and taking care of things and maybe ventilation and all this stuff. I really like the way the texture just seems a lot different than acrylic and I really like that. Actually know what I didn’t play around with maybe like applying-
What am I doing? Let’s just see what happens if we used to card. So I don’t know we could do with this. Whoa but… Ooh hold up. I just really- I do want to abstract I think in my last unboxing video I was like I want to do abstract and I did the character. But also look how cool this is. I just put some swatches down and then went over it with this and smeared it around. It looks so cool. Okay, so we’ve got our swatches down. That was fun. Cool. I have a better idea-
That sounded so sarcastic I have a better idea now of what sort of colors we’re working with and what we can mix so I’m going to do some some thumbnailing and see-
Oh our canvas is a square. So I’m like, oh I just got this paint down.
I don’t want to get dirty. So maybe I’ll do some thumbnailing get some ideas down, see what’s up. So if we do want to stick to the theme it was “abstract floral”. So I was thinking about playing with texture and doing like a field of flowers or something. That might be really fun.
And then having like… Like a little fairy or sprite or something and contrast with this little guy Which now I’m starting to think would be so cute if they had like a little red hat in this purplish bluish field of flowers with red-
Oh my gosh. I’m loving this. With pink cheeks! Oh! I’m already sold on that idea. But let’s continue. Shall we do… I don’t want to do a figure ’cause I did like a portrait in the last mystery unboxing where we painted with acrylics. Gosh, we’re just doing all of the painting aren’t we? You know, I just did, a few videos ago, I painted a girl that had flowers for eyes. What if we had like flowers for hair, and she did have vines for hair. Big anime eyes or something. An anime nose? I could just draw anime. Don’t know why I went in that direction. But here we are. Wait is she still gonna have flowers? Maybe she just have a flower in her hair. She’s an anime character. I gotta give her anime hair! Why am I drawing this… again? Can anybody remind me? Okay, I just got a really crazy idea. I know, I’m so crazy. So remember this canvas? I do have a few of these but remember this canvas? Well, I was thinking maybe to get warmed up we could do like an abstract painting or something where I just kind of I’m not gonna use all this paint on this tiny canvas I mean I might as well have fun and do something kind of crazy, right? I think we should warm up do something abstracts on here and then once I get a feel for the paint’s we can do our field of flowers on this little thing. Sound good? No? Well, I’m going to do it anyways. I think a nice… I don’t even know where to start. I think a nice gradient from dark to light would be pretty cool. We’re just gonna see what happens. I- I think it’s really cool that it’s been experiment with no direction in mind. So the brush is very small. Maybe I should start off with the card and just see where it goes from here. Ooooooh abstract. What if I like the swirls more than the lines? We could always do a little bit of both, huh? There’s too much purple! It turned into nothing but purple and now it makes me very sad. Okay, it looks like I put more red down… You guys are probably like screaming at all the paint I’m using. So I’m gonna start at the bottom and we’re just gonna do circles all the way… to the top of the canvas. I’m just gonna see what the paint does. See what happens. Here we go. Some spots are gonna be thicker than others. Some are going to be thinner than others. What if I love this? The only thing I don’t like is I wish there was like a better smoother gradient from like the lighter one to like a pink because I do really like this pastel-y pinkily purple color. I just think it’s really fun and interesting and it just captures that I just had fun and just let loose and did something really… whatever this is.
And I really like it. And I’m kind of Obsessed with wanting to paint the edges though. I just don’t know how to get the same color. I gotta be honest with you guys. I enjoyed this abstract painting. This is my abstract floral. We have a lovely bouquet of pink white flowers going to red and purple and it’s nice and textured. I think it’s really cool. I think it’s really fun. I just got paint on my arm. I’m going to have to have this sit somewhere for three days to dry, so that’s terrifying. But I think it’s really cool. I mean, look at these textures. It’s really fun. There’s chunks of paint. I just went loose, had fun and thanks for coming to my video. I hope-
No I’m joking. I’m actually going to do the small canvas next. So I hope you guys enjoyed me just experimenting and having fun. Let’s move to something a little more Illustrative a little bit more my style.
Fun and cute. Let’s get into it. Okay, so that campus is actually so small. I’m going to need to zoom. Is that good? I think that might be okay. I hope it is because honestly, that’s the most my camera can zoom in. Alright. So let’s use the box how we’re supposed to. Wow. I did put it in some paints there. That’s fine. Okay, so let’s just go ahead and get some colors out. With my abstract painting I learned that you actually don’t need that much paint. It can go a very long way. I think that’s the difference between oil and acrylic. Oil really stretches out. It’s very… something with oil.
And again I don’t know anything about oil paint.
But something with it seemed like it was able to spread out a lot easier than acrylic.
Acrylic seem to be really chunky. I guess I could pencil up probably directly onto the canvas right since paint goes over it? I mean why not? That’s why we have this pencil. Okay, so just like our little sketch there. I was thinking about having some clouds in the sky don’t really need to sketch clouds. Okay. And there’s gonna be flowers in the field to keep to our theme but I mean I already did my abstract floral. Did you not see that masterpiece I just created like a second ago? Mean I wish I put way more blue in that piece because it’s super purple heavy, but I can always do another one. I want to start off with like a… pink sky. So we’ll get just a little bit. Okay, that is not just a little bit. I’m not used to mixing colors with white because I’m so used to watercolor where if you want something white you either leave the paper blank or you just add water to your paints. However with acrylic and oil I am out of practice because I know you’re only supposed to add like a little bit of color to white because the color will overpower the white. Okay, so I want this guy to fade to white So I’m just going to get some white It’s just so different than watercolor where I can play around with the texture of material whereas watercolor is just super flat. I want to play with it just being really loose so I’m not super concerned… with consistency of color or anything. About ready for another disaster. Maybe I should start off with a base and then add on top of it. Feel like this isn’t really adding texture. I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing. just going through and adding texture and layering darknesses the best I can. I know the drying time of these paints is three to five days but Yeah, that’s just not for me we’re just gonna jump in and try to layer this as best as we can while it’s wet. I wish our brush was smaller. The brush is like as big as the canvas. Would have been nice to have like a finer point to work with because we’re working so tiny, but that’s okay. So I want a little elf guy’s skin to be just white. But I don’t want it to be like clean white canvas. I want to cover everything in paint but because oil has that long drying time I’m so scared that it’s just going to mix everything up in this poor little guy’s face, and he’ll become this purple red blob. Wish me luck. I’m gonna be really close. I actually kind of want to try to smooth out the red bits because they’re just So 3d. I don’t know how oils work. I feel like there’s just too much paint. I actually think I want the texture of the brushstrokes should go around the hat instead of up the hat. I think that creates a more visually interesting texture and also helps suggest that the hat is round. I like that. I like that a lot more. Okay, cool. We’re getting somewhere. Do I want to add a mouth? Oh my gosh. I think I love this little guy. He’s cute. Alright, let’s add… some… red flowers to the field. Okay, is this it? Is that our abstract floral situation? So this is- I’m afraid to touch it because it’s forever wet till the day I die. ⚰️ Here is our little first oil painting with the theme “abstract floral.” We had our little gnome elf thing running in this purple field of red flowers and a pink sky we have our textured clouds. This was a struggle. I’m pretty sure I don’t know what I’m doing. This was a struggle This was really cool. But this was a struggle.
Everything was a struggle, but you know I actually had a lot of fun doing our abstract painting which is across the room drying because it’s going to take 10,000 days to dry. So I’m not gonna touch it because I’m scared. But I had a lot of fun. This was really interesting. I enjoyed my first experience with oil paints even though it was really scary and you know what? I had the most fun with that abstract painting with just swirling colors together and just doing it and having fun. So… Would I do that again? Yeah. It might be fun to add little characters in these abstract paintings. So it’s something that I want to try doing and playing around with. Alright guys. Hope you enjoyed this disaster Hopefully you had some fun. I had some fun with the abstract painting definitely playing loosely with this was really fun even though I didn’t do the drawing time properly. But it was fun. Did I say I had fun yet? It was fun.
