How to Draw Foam Bubbles With Color Pencils

Hello my friends and welcome!
to another Tuesday of tutorial. I am Leonardo Pereznieto and today
we are going to draw some foam bubbles. We begin by sketching a half circle shape
with white pastel, on blue carbor paper. And I will draw a couple of others small
bubbles, why not? Then with a green pencil,
let´s do some reflections of trees on the upper part. We make some leaves
on one side and on the other one of each one of the bubbles,
with more reflections and some shading with different tones of blue. And we can add some green,
orange and red, so that they looks like a rainbow
on these parts. Good! With a light blue or with
darker tones, we delineate the border of each one of the bubbles. By the way, the list of materials
is in the description below the video. We also draw the waves
and ripples that are formed on the water. From this perspective they
appear like concentric ovals. Also the smaller ones should
have their own ripples. We reinforce some sections
of the outline and then with an oil pastel, we do some
bright highlights. And with a light blue pencil
we continue making reflections. We continue adding richness with white, and specially
with different hues of blue. I would love it if you
could let me know in the comments section,
which one out of all my tutorials that you
have seen, is your favorite. And which one is the subject
that you would liked the most to see in a future tutorial. And since now we are surveying, I have
one more question for you… If I made a course that you
could take online, what would be the subject
of technique, that you would like to learn from me, the most. I´m very interested in your answer. We continue drawing the shades and
reflections of the ripples. They should vanish,
what mean, they shouldn´t have hard lines. I will modify these ones
because I think they should have a change of direction
as they will be affected by the small bubbles. And with the kneaded eraser,
I lighten up and lose some of these lines. We add some splash ovals,
the last details… And it will be ready! If you enjoyed it, please
give it a LIKE, share it to your friends and subscribe to Fine Art-Tips. Don´t forget to answer the questions,
and I will see you, on Tuesday 🙂 Subtitled by Grethel Trejo

    It would be very useful to learn about drawing and shading hair, feathers and fur.
    Very interested in clay modeling. (Is it possible to make a figure of a horse?)
    P. S. Right behind you at the beginning of the video are bookshelves. Can you suggest some interesting books for beginners.

    You are Amazing! all of the drawings are beautiful.

  • Gijs de Jong

    This is amazing!!!

  • Ravindra Ravi


  • Noneother80

    I would like to learn about color theory. I love your drawings–I mean pictures–I mean that they just look so real. My favorite video so far is either the figure drawing from imagination or the video on lines. Not many artists on YouTube go over the basics or the smallest details; however, the smallest details are usually what matter most.

  • take 2 gaming

    I think that you are an amazing artist and you are my inspiration, if u could, could you do a tutorial on how to create/personalise a sketch book or arrange a potfolio! If you could reply to this message i woulld be over the moon. Carry on dont change for anyone. You produce fine art and give great tips. 🙂

  • Malina Gayton

    This is so beautiful! I love your drawing style and the charm you give to your videos. I've been drawing a lot better ever since I started watching your videos. Could you do more colored pencil tutorials since their all I have at the moment? Thank you!!

  • MoZZy EzZcobar

    I would learn proportions for drawing cars and draw reflections from you.

    It's always impressive to see you draw you are my iconic and I wish I could really learn something from you…

  • Domino_Emery

    What I would want to know about is shading.  And again, very nice video.  

  • Edward Renardo

    i would say a futurism art on the future time will be awesome,figuring that you could try for another flow besides realism.. i think that you will do just as perfect as you are right now(IMO) 😀 thnx,you're awesome..♫

  • Sinclair

    I need many of those white pens for the highlights. I just have some colour pens. I don't know which ones are the best. Normal coulour pens aren't really effective.

  • Nour Mattar

    No favorites ( all your videos are amazing )
    Corals, and sea shells.

  • jan Dehwar

  • Peter A Edwards

    All your art and craft are interesting, so could not pick a favorite one.
    How to create shadow and line perspective would be interesting.

  • Joseph Freeman

    You should draw the creature from ALIEN. My favourite tutorial was painting the Galaxy, it was great!!!

  • Kanak Kothawale

  • existential

    I've benefitted from all your tutorials. It's hard to pick a favorite. As for online classes, I would like to see one on perspective.

  • lesya amalia

    I love the cherry blossoms tutorial!! And i hope to see tutorials for landscape, sunset, sky, clouds, and so on. I want colouring course 😀 and how to draw background or forest and plants (such as tree, grass, flower, branch, leaf). I love your video!! Keep up the great work 😀

  • Saskia Eberman

    human drawing and proportion using colored pencil and regular pencil 

  • Tartantaz Creates

    My favourite tutorials will have to be your angel and mermaid tutorials.  I have only just discovered you.  I have returned to art after 20 years of not drawing much at all. Mostly doing more craft than art the past 10 years.  I am now art journaling and drawing more.  I have just followed your tutorial of the angel sitting with the dress, she turned out ok. Do you like to see the work that has been inspired by your videos?  I would love to know how you use different types of colour pencils. I do my best work when I can blend the colours so oil pastels are my favourite for blending.  I have just obtained spectrum noir colour pencils for example and they behave differently to prisma colour.  I am sure I could be getting better results if I knew how to use them properly. I do not own prisma colour. Thank you

  • SquidMark

    All the subjects you usually do!!!( ^ω^ )

  • Marvin Groll

    Hey i love your videos.
    Because of you i startet to draw 😀
    and i will be very happy if you could draw some pictures from landscapes.

  • Abi

    A course that i think would be good is drawing anatomy and body proportions

  • angelika Paul

    Your instruction and techniques are already excellent. I suppose I would continue to enjoy colored pencils and charcoal. Also some pastels. Oil and chalk. I understand that your art takes much longer than the "Speed Time" videos, but a real time video would be helpful with close up shots of intricate areas. But in truth, I am already happy with what you do

  • ShadowWolf

    draw a chameleon

  • Candied Rose

    This helps alot when im drawing on a 3DS XL Game called Pokemon Art Academy! Maybe you can do a Lesson on drawing Pikachu? :3

  • Odette Smith

    I love your videos you make me want to start drawing again. I love your dolphin pictures and I would to see landscapes in oil paints. Also a class on the best way to draw from your imagination. Thank you for all the videos.

  • MeetMe

    I like your 'crystal' art like the crystal swan and bear so I think it would be great to see some of those in the future again. But I love all your tutorials 🙂

  • Segar Segar

    Wow!!!! Very very beautiful I love it!!!!!

  • Falcon SIU

    It's amazing.

  • Nick Grant

    I enjoy all the videos but my favorites you draw are of gemstones and water basically everything thats transparent with or without color or things that shine like your chrome videos. I also like the rose video alot. I would enjoy a course in all of those subjects

  • TheRockyMountainProject

    I would like a thorough explanation of how to add detail that will make simple sketches look more realistic. I understand its all about shading and highlights but I never quite understood that.

  • Altonology

    I would like to learn how to hold the pencil correctly for different lines, and also how to shade like you.

  • Tunku Hani

    I like your horse tutorial.
    You're great at art

  • Regina Hamt

    Love your videos. How about drawing cloth or clothing texture and using mixed media


    If you did a online class you should cover shading shading is a difficult task to learn

  • Buntstift Kunst

    Hey, this is really beautiful. Thank you for sharing 🙂

  • Isabel Hooker

    if you made a online curse i would like to learn much more about shadows and water 

  • Brianna Hilario

    My favorite tutorial was the crystal apple one. I would like to see more drawings with other crystal things☺

  • Sharona sh

    how long does it actually take you to draw

  • cindy cook

    I really like your water drop , and bubbles. and your voice is really soothing to the ear, you make drawing very relaxing

  • cindy cook

    and yes i would take a course on line with you

  • Angela Hansen

    I would love to learn more about skin tones and colors, along with shading them properly.

  • Debbie Weaver

    I would love to take an on-line course, maybe one for a beginner. I just found this on my FB wall and it is facinating how you do this! Another class that would be very helpful would be shading. This is very difficult. How do you know where to put the shading and how do you do it correctly. Also like someone else has stated a class explaining the differen tools (pencils, pastels, oil pastels etc) and how to use them correctly.
    Again thank-you for this amazing video and I look forward to hearing more about on-line classes with you.
