How To Draw Turning Red

The scorching sun sits high in the sky, its warm rays serving as a constant reminder of summer’s presence. Turn your gaze away from the blinding light and to the easel beside you, a blank canvas laid out underneath the brush in your hand. Drawing a line of red across it, an electric thrill runs through your veins as you begin to understand how to draw turning red.
Containing yourself, you quickly move the brush around the canvas in strong, confident strokes. You’ve always been confident in your abilities, but there was something about the intensity of the sun’s light that made you feel even more capable. You create shapes, layering and blending color as it makes its way across the white surface.
An hour passes by quickly and before you know it, you’ve developed a painting that looks almost alive. The red radiates from the canvas and pulses with an energy that’s almost too powerful to contain. You look up and marvel at what you’ve created, the masterpiece you’ve managed to create under the sun’s overwhelming and relentless gaze.
Moving back to the easel, you begin to mix in various shades of blue, green and yellow, each adding its own unique flair to the painting. You take your time, noticing how each color reacts differently with one another to create various hues and textures. Creating shadows and highlights, you’re able to add a unique dimension to each part of the painting, making it even more alive.
Your energy begins to flow in a rhythmic pattern – first, the brush touches the canvas, then your eyes close in concentration, then the brush swirls around again and finally, the eyes open to check your work. You marvel at how quickly you’ve managed to create something so complex and beautiful, the painting moving with the motion of your arm as if it was your own reflection in invisible waters.
Swirling a painted cloth dipped in water around the brush and the original, untainted canvas, a feeling of excitement and joy washes over you. Finally, you’ve mastered the art of drawing turning red. You close your eyes and gently drift away in admiration, the painting completed and your work done.
