Painting a Hatayi Motif

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I uploaded two different videos of me painting the Hatais that I practice drawing every now and then. Ottoman patterns/motifs do require a lot of dedication, and patience. So when I have a busy schedule I tend to practice less and less. Yet, I always force myself to draw a simple motif so that I don’t forget the way to draw them and their shape. Although Hatais are flower motifs, yet they have a specific structure and drawing technique. I’ll post a video with a blog post later showing how you draw a Hatayi from the scratch.

 

How to Paint a Hatayi Part 1

The tools I used in the video are:
+ Winsor and Newton watercolors mini palette
+ Gold ink from Kuretake (Japanese brand) Website: http://www.kuretake.co.jp
+ Pencil to draw the motif

How to Paint a Hatayi Part 2

The Hatayi in this video is different from the previous one. Actually, there are many types of Hatayis which you can find in Ottoman Illumination Books but for a beginning, you can stick to few shapes until you’re confident enough to learn more.

The tools I used in the video are:

  • Liquid Arabic Gum
  • Winsor and Newton mini watercolors palette
  • Solo Goya Gold Acrylic Paint
  • Giotto Paint Brush n.4
  • Empty small container (to mix the paint with the Arabic Gum)
