We draw the sea sunset and decorate the old door

If you dreamed to try yourself in the role of an artist, then this master class will help bring your dream to life! In addition, it will save the family budget: the old door will not have to be changed to a new one. Sea sunset, cirrus clouds, splashing waves and very simple decor create the impression of proximity to water and southern heat even in the northernmost corner of the planet. Minimal investment, a small amount of time spent will bring the maximum sense of satisfaction and make you believe in your own strength.
Materials for work:
1. Decorative self-adhesive film - according to the height and width of the door;
2. Bottle - spray - 1 piece;
3. Paint - spray - 1 cylinder;
4. Colorless acrylic lacquer - 1 can;
5. Round brush (squirrel), wide brush (bristles), clay, varnish, gouache paints, scissors.
Stages of work:
The first stage: we mask the bulges and depressions.

For even paint application, remove all the bulges from the door (cut with a knife or grind down with sandpaper).

Dents equal plasticine.

The second stage: preparing the basis.
Cut along the shading from the back of the self-adhesive film narrow strips along the length and width of the door (in the present embodiment, 4 strips each). By the number of narrow strip joints, we cut squares from adhesive tape of 4 x 4 size (16 pieces).

Sticking on the pre-degreased surface of the door first vertical stripes (approximately equal distance from each other).

Then we glue the horizontal stripes.

The joints of the bands are masked with small squares, placing them at an angle (in the form of a diamond).

We close the door joints with walls (securing plastic tape with tape or old wallpaper).

The third stage: we put the main paints on all surface.
The entire surface of the door is painted blue. For this part of the work is more convenient to use spray. Dry according to the instructions on the bottle.

In a small bottle-spray pour paint green (you can dilute the gouache with water or use color paint). Visually divide the door to the "heavenly" (upper) and "marine" (lower) parts. We make uneven spots on the lower part of the door.

On the upper and lower parts of the door we make spots of white paint.

Fourth stage: draw the horizon.
Cross the door draw a clear narrow narrow strip.While the paint is not dry, apply blue strokes on the upper and lower parts of the strip, lubricating the sharpness of the color transition. When applying up-down-up strokes, the paints are mixed, giving a new color and forming a smooth transition.

The edges of the blue shaded blue.

Closer to the edges of the door, the width of the blue and blue strokes is widened.

Fifth stage: form the sunset.
Above the blue horizon draw an irregularly shaped red stripe. It is possible to put yellow strokes on the “raw” one.

Even higher shading dark red paint. We add on the center of red - white, we take away whiteness in the sides.

Below the blue horizon we draw a red stripe already at the top, trying to imitate a mirror image.

Add yellow strokes to the redness of the horizon. Draw a glare of sunset on the sea side of the door (making a few strokes red and immediately on them - yellow).

Sixth stage: draw the sun and its highlights.
With the color ocher (or a mixture of yellow with a drop of red) draw a circle on the red horizon.

We let the paint dry a little and smear the dry paint with transverse strokes to the center of the circle.

Yellow color draw the mirror glare of the sun below the horizon line.

Between the yellow reflections of the mirror reflection of the sun we make a few white strokes. In the center of the sun whiten with circular movements of the brush.

Extend white highlights, gradually narrowing strokes. Add a little yellow over white.

Once again we whiten the middle of the sun and expand the glare under the horizon, adding a drop of green to the yellow paint.

Seventh stage: form the sea.
We divide the sea in half in a semicircle, erasing the strip of irregular shape from the blue paint (wet cloth - until the blue base appears). The upper part of the sea is blue, applying wide strokes of a mixture of white and blue colors.

The lower part of the green sea is again separated by the blue, wiping the strip with a wet cloth.

We make the bottom of the green sea even greener (applying long strokes with a mixture of green and yellow paints). This will be the coast.
