  • - Hi, welcome back.
  • Hope you have your easel set up and you're ready
  • to paint along with me this day.
  • So let's start out and have 'em run all the colors
  • across the screen that you need to do this painting
  • and let's go up to the canvas and get started.
  • Now I've already covered this canvas with a thin,
  • even coat of Magic White so it's nice and wet
  • and slick and ready to go.
  • Start a little bit of Thalo Blue,
  • a little bit of Thalo Blue,
  • and just work it into the bristles.
  • And let's just put a, let's just put a
  • happy little sky up here.
  • Just making little crisscross strokes.
  • Just let your brush bounce around, play, have fun.
  • There we go.
  • Little more of the blue.
  • It's always simple to add more color
  • but it's a son of a gun to take it out
  • so use very little color on your brush.
  • You can always go back and put a little more in.
  • Mmk, and that quick we have
  • we have a happy little sky.
  • There we go.
  • And you don't want to kill all these little spots here
  • that happen, it ends up looking like little cloud
  • indications and you really haven't done a thing.
  • Let the canvas work and the Magic White work.
  • And we wash our brush.
  • (paint brush bangs)
  • (chuckles)
  • Tell you what, let's just use this ol' big brush then.
  • I'll go right into some Titanium White.
  • I'm just gonna pull the brush right through the color.
  • Just pull it right through the color.
  • Go down here and get a little Permanent Red.
  • Put it right in there, too.
  • That'll make it make a little sunlight here.
  • Just pull it one direction
  • and let's go up here.
  • Maybe, maybe, maybe there's a big ol' cloud
  • that lives right there.
  • It's your cloud so you just put him wherever you want him.
  • Little tiny circles here.
  • And he just sort of floats across the sky.
  • And then he's got a friend that lives right there.
  • Clouds need friends, too.
  • We all need a friend.
  • Okay, now I'm gonna use just the same ol' brush here
  • and just fill that in a little.
  • Okay, now with a clean dry brush,
  • and I have several of 'em here,
  • you can just blend this out a little.
  • Not touching the top at all yet.
  • Just blending, don't wanna kill all the little actions.
  • Just wanna blend them a little bit
  • and I'm gonna lift it up,
  • sort of fluff that cloud up.
  • We'll fluff this one up.
  • And very lightly, very lightly,
  • we'll just blend it all together.
  • And that easy, we got a quick little sky.
  • That's all it takes.
  • Same ol' dirty brush I'll go right into some Sap Green.
  • Just load that brush full of Sap Green
  • and let's go right up here to the canvas
  • and maybe today we'll have,
  • there it is,
  • just a little, little hill like right here.
  • Just let it go.
  • This is just straight Sap Green and it's mixing
  • with the Magic White just on the canvas
  • so you get all the beautiful little things happening.
  • Okay.
  • And all we're doing here is applying some dark color
  • so our light color will show later on.
  • You need the dark in order to show light.
  • But this is also where you begin deciding
  • the lay of the land.
  • And in my mind, this is sort of roundish here.
  • So keep the strokes going that way.
  • Or however way you want.
  • Okay, just drop it in.
  • Now I want it darker in the foreground.
  • Landscapes should always be darker as they get closer to you
  • so without cleaning the brush I'll go
  • right into some Thalo Blue.
  • And down here on the bottom, we'll just drop that in.
  • Just to darken it up
  • and then we'll work upward so that it gets lighter
  • as we go toward the horizon.
  • Kinda gives us a nice dark background to play with.
  • And we're not worried about detail or shape
  • or anything else at this point.
  • All I'm doing is applying the color to the canvas
  • so we have something to work with.
  • Okay, while I got this ol' dirty brush I'll go back into,
  • let's use some Sap Green, some Van Dyke Brown,
  • a little Alizarin Crimson
  • and maybe, maybe, maybe
  • there's some little trees that live up here.
  • So we'll just drop in some basic shapes.
  • Still not looking for a lot of detail.
  • Just very, very basic shapes.
  • Very basic.
  • Once again, you need this dark coloring
  • in order to show light.
  • Okay, now we have some little trees up here
  • on top of our hill.
  • Now then, now then, I'm gonna take some
  • Titanium White and a little Burnt Umber in it.
  • White with a little umber.
  • And pull that paint out very flat.
  • Gotta cross it, get a little roll of paint right
  • on the edge of your knife and with that
  • we can go up here and we'll make
  • some little tree trunk indications.
  • We're not looking for detail yet, so just, just drop 'em in.
  • Most of these'll be covered up but a few of 'em will show.
  • Few of 'em will show
  • and people will think you worked
  • for long periods of time to put 'em in.
  • This is a little Van Dyke Brown here.
  • Maybe there's gonna be a few little trees that
  • project right on up like this.
  • We'll put some leaves on 'em.
  • So we're not too worried right now.
  • All we're looking for is just some indications
  • here and there.
  • Okay, let's get us a one inch brush
  • and begin putting some highlight here.
  • Let's put a little Magic White on the brush.
  • The Magic White will thin your paint.
  • So into the Magic White I'll go into some Cad Yellow.
  • And get up some Sap Green.
  • So we have Cad Yellow and Sap Green.
  • Okay, pull that brush in one direction.
  • Load it full of paint, look at all that paint on that brush.
  • Just look right on the end.
  • You can see there's a tremendous amount of paint there.
  • Let's go up to the canvas.
  • Let's start right in here and very gently,
  • we'll just drop in some nice little leaves on this tree.
  • Now we begin to worrying about a little detail.
  • And this is a very gentle touch.
  • Barely, barely touching the canvas.
  • That's a lot of paint on the brush so you don't
  • have to push hard.
  • We'll add a little Yellow Ochre, just to change the color.
  • And maybe, there it is right there.
  • Another happy little tree.
  • Okay, I wanna go back and get a little more
  • of the Sap Green in this.
  • And let's just drop a few little indications
  • of some leaves out here on this little tree.
  • See how easy that is?
  • And maybe, maybe on this little tree here
  • there's just a few little things happening.
  • Can start adding a little bit Permanent Red to our color.
  • Okay, maybe right here's another little tree.
  • You have to make these decisions in your world:
  • How many trees are there?
  • It's up to you.
  • Just vary these colors, let them sort of go back and forth.
  • Play.
  • There's one over here.
  • Don't want him to be left out.
  • He'd cry if you leave him out.
  • Let's see, you still worried about the lay of the land?
  • Still wanna pay attention to that.
  • Let the land go in the direction you want it to go in.
  • Don't kill all your dark colors.
  • 'Cause dark colors are needed to make the light color show.
  • Just go over to the other side of the canvas
  • and we'll drop in some highlights right here on this one.
  • And sort of work in layers.
  • It really, it really makes your painting much, much deeper.
  • It makes all these things happen.
  • You need that depth in there.
  • We don't want flat paintings.
  • Okay, now, maybe,
  • maybe, maybe we'll take just a point of the knife.
  • Cut in a few little sticks and twigs.
  • Just here and there, now if you want a twig
  • that's a little wider turn the knife sideways
  • and it'll make wider little sticks and trunks and stuff.
  • If you want 'em really skinny, use it straight on.
  • And I use just the point of the knife.
  • Okay.
  • Tell you what, let's have a little,
  • let's have a little house right there,
  • way back in the distance.
  • I'll start with some Van Dyke brown
  • and, and we'll make a decision.
  • Maybe it lives right there.
  • And we'll do the eaves.
  • See that's sort of a nice way just to lay it out.
  • And here goes the roof, goes right over like that.
  • See and you just lay out a basic shape.
  • Pull it all together.
  • There, just barely, barely touching the canvas.
  • You need an overhang.
  • Okay, now right down through here.
  • There we go.
  • I don't want this to get too big.
  • I want it to be far away, far away.
  • Okay, let's take some Van Dyke brown,
  • some white, little Burnt Umber.
  • And, we'll put some highlight on this old building here.
  • Barely, barley touch, barely touch.
  • Barely touch.
  • Just let it whisper through.
  • Now we have to make a decision:
  • What kind of roof does it have?
  • Does it have a shingle roof?
  • Flat roof?
  • What do we want?
  • Okay, let's take some Permanent Red.
  • And we'll use a little edge of the knife
  • and maybe we'll just drop a few little indications
  • of some shingles.
  • Just touching, pulling at the top of this one overlap.
  • The other one, just let 'em overlap.
  • And you can put all the little shingles you want on here.
  • Some simple way to make very simple
  • little shingle roofs.
  • We need a door.
  • Maybe this is an old barn type building.
  • We'll put a big door in it.
  • Maybe it's just an old barn the farmer had sitting out here.
  • Little bit of white and we can make that door stand out.
  • And when you're painting buildings,
  • you know you can change your mind.
  • Maybe, maybe right out here
  • there's an old shed on this building.
  • Maybe this old farmer here was like me,
  • he ran out of room
  • so he started putting additions onto it.
  • Need a front.
  • And a side.
  • Take just a little paint, we'll put some boards in there.
  • Just cut right through the paint.
  • Got just a tiny bit of white paint on the knife.
  • Okay, let's put some indication of,
  • if he shingled the roof chances are
  • he probably put some shingles over here on his little shed.
  • There we go.
  • Just like that.
  • Now then let's put some, let's put a little bit
  • of grass around the bottom of this barn.
  • Just right here.
  • He hadn't been keeping his weeds mowed.
  • Nature's about to reclaim this one.
  • There we go, we just wash that brush
  • and start with a nice clean brush.
  • Okay, let's go right here.
  • There, that stands out a little better.
  • Okay.
  • We about have us a little barn.
  • I'm gonna add the tiniest little bit of white right here,
  • just to make that stand out
  • so hopefully you can see it just a little better at home.
  • There.
  • Think that'll help make it stand out a little.
  • Alrighty, now we can start making some more decisions:
  • What do we have here in the foreground?
  • And we'll just keep going with this one inch brush.
  • And, and, maybe there's a nice little bush that lives here.
  • And you're still concerned about the lay of the land.
  • Follow the lay of the land.
  • Most, most important.
  • There it comes, tell you what,
  • maybe, maybe you can see what's left
  • of an old path here.
  • I see maybe the trees and the bushes
  • have just about taken it over
  • but you can still make out a little
  • indication here and there.
  • It used to be an old path there.
  • Take a little brown and white.
  • You can highlight that a little.
  • Just barely touching the canvas.
  • And we don't know where it goes.
  • Okay.
  • Now we need to bring some of these little grassy areas
  • right up to the path.
  • That will set it down into the painting.
  • There.
  • And the path sort of gives you a nice perspective,
  • pushes everything back.
  • And a little more of the color.
  • And, as I say, here the bushes and the trees
  • have just about taken over again.
  • Not much of the path left.
  • So you just cover up whatever you don't want.
  • It just sort of, sort of fades out down here.
  • Okay, tell you what, maybe, maybe
  • lives a big tree over here.
  • Let's make some black.
  • I'm gonna use some Thalo Green
  • and Alizarin Crimson in about equal parts.
  • Thalo Green, Alizarin Crimson.
  • (paintbrush screeches on palette)
  • Oooo.
  • That's one of them noises like
  • pulling your finger down the chalkboard.
  • Make you shudder.
  • Okay, now then mix this up real good.
  • Little bit of paint and let's go up here.
  • Maybe we'll make a nice tree trunk.
  • There it is, there it is.
  • This'll help push everything back.
  • Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
  • there's a friend that lives right there.
  • Got two tree trunks.
  • Just let 'em go.
  • Right on up.
  • Where does it go?
  • Goes right on out of sight, right off the canvas.
  • Right off the canvas.
  • Good dark color.
  • Give him some little foots down here.
  • Tree needs some foots.
  • Okay.
  • Now then.
  • Put a few little indications of some limbs
  • and then we can drop some leaves on this tree.
  • And it just helps push your little building back farther.
  • Gives you another plane.
  • Use a little brown and white
  • and we'll just put some little indications
  • and some highlight here.
  • Okay.
  • There, just enough to make it stand out.
  • Okay.
  • Good.
  • And I'll go right back and get this old big brush.
  • It's still dirty.
  • And let's just take and just very quickly
  • drop in some, some general little leaf shapes here.
  • We're not looking for a lot of detail.
  • This is Sap Green, a little Van Dyke Brown,
  • little Alizarin Crimson.
  • Just the same old dirty brush I was using earlier.
  • Got a little bit of everything on it.
  • As long as it's dark that's the big thing.
  • As long as it's dark.
  • And here we're pushing quite hard,
  • really wanna push that color right into the canvas.
  • And I can go back to the one inch brush.
  • We'll put a little, use a little bit of
  • Cad Yellow and Sap Green.
  • Pull that brush in one direction.
  • Load it full of paint.
  • Lot of paint.
  • Okay, let's go up to the canvas here.
  • And very lightly, very lightly,
  • just begin touching and building in some basic little,
  • little patterns and little shapes.
  • You don't want your tree to be all flat.
  • Remember that there's limbs projecting toward you.
  • They're not all just going off the sides.
  • So you need all these little patterns inside
  • to make it have depth and shape.
  • Don't want it to be just an old flat tree.
  • Okay.
  • Now down here at his foots,
  • you can put some little bushes and stuff down here.
  • And if your paint doesn't stick,
  • add a little paint thinner to it and then it'll stick.
  • Okay, still following the lay of the land.
  • I tell you what, I tell you what, maybe,
  • maybe we can see,
  • maybe there's a little, little bit of a stream we can see.
  • Maybe it just sort of creeps along here
  • and it lives right there.
  • I'm gonna touch a little Thalo Blue.
  • Maybe it just comes right down through here,
  • wherever you want.
  • Or if you don't want a stream in your world,
  • don't put it in.
  • Just pull straight down, you need that dark.
  • I'll touch a little of the black color that I made.
  • I want it very dark, very dark.
  • There we go, that's much better.
  • Much better.
  • And very lightly just go across.
  • Now we need a fan brush
  • and we'll use a little Magic White
  • and a little, little bit of the Titanium White.
  • Magic White and Titanium White.
  • I put the Magic White in there just to thin it a little.
  • And maybe the little stream comes right down through here
  • and it just bounces and plays and has fun.
  • Let all these little things happen.
  • Okay it goes right on down.
  • Tell you what, maybe right here is a big stone,
  • it hits, kaploosh!
  • And just falls over.
  • This is your stream so you make it go anywhere
  • you want it to go.
  • Splashes down here and it works right on through.
  • There's another one.
  • And there's always stones that are underneath the water
  • that you really can't even see 'em but they cause
  • all kinds of beautiful little things to happen.
  • You know, when you buy your first tube of paint
  • you get that artist license and it (chuckles),
  • read it, it says, "You can do anything you wanna do."
  • At least on this piece of canvas.
  • This piece of canvas is your world,
  • anything that you wanna do.
  • Okay, we'll take a little Yellow Ochre,
  • little Cad Yellow and I just wanna, just here and there,
  • drop in a few more bushes.
  • Tell you what let's do, I'm gonna take another fan brush,
  • let's put some land in here.
  • Use some Van Dyke Brown, Burnt Umber.
  • Lot of paint on the brush and maybe we'll just
  • scrub in some dirt area here.
  • Put some borders on our little stream.
  • It comes right around and maybe it's right here.
  • Just to put some dirt in here.
  • Okay, now here's another little stone,
  • wherever you want 'em.
  • Comes right on out here.
  • Okay, I'll just the same old brush,
  • take some Yellow Ochre and a little white on it
  • and let's just put in some little indications,
  • little Permanent Red added to that.
  • That'll sparkle it up.
  • Make it just look like little stones here and there.
  • Wherever, wherever.
  • There we go.
  • And you can put as many little stones
  • as you want in your world.
  • Okay, now I'll use the fan brush,
  • a little bit of Cad Yellow and let's just drop in
  • some happy little bushes here and there.
  • They come right down and this brings all this together.
  • Just bring it all together.
  • Okay.
  • That easy you can create a beautiful little painting
  • and you really don't have to plan it.
  • Just sort of look at it, let it happen.
  • There we go.
  • Okay, then we can take our brush that had
  • the watercolor on it, clean up these edges.
  • And this is where you bring it all together.
  • Just like so.
  • Take your brown, some of these stones here are very dark.
  • Want 'em very dark.
  • So they stand out better.
  • There's one right there.
  • Just let it go.
  • Okay.
  • Now then...
  • Tell you what, maybe there's a little stick,
  • a little thing that lives right here.
  • All kind of little limbs.
  • And this is just, I'm using that black color.
  • Still using that Alizarin Crimson and Thalo Green.
  • Want it to stand out, nice dark color.
  • And little limb here and there, wherever you want 'em.
  • Wherever.
  • There we go.
  • And we can take our liner brush,
  • I use a little thin oil or paint thinner, either one.
  • I use a little oil.
  • And we can put a few little limbs here and there.
  • I like the oil because it slides a little easier
  • when you have a lot of paint here.
  • But paint thinner will work just as well
  • if you don't have oil.
  • And just put an old dead stick out here.
  • There we go.
  • And maybe this some little things that live right there.
  • See, this thin paint, you can move it very easily
  • on top of the other paint without becoming a mud mixer.
  • And wherever you want these little sticks, drop 'em in.
  • Drop 'em in.
  • Okay, tell you what let's do,
  • let's take a little more of the oil,
  • I'll go right into some Permanent Red here.
  • And let's sign this painting.
  • There we are.
  • And I hope you've enjoyed this one.
  • It's a lot of fun, give you some ideas.
  • And at home you can make some beautiful paintings also.
  • Until next week, God bless.
  • Happy painting.
