  • Hi, welcome back.

  • Certainly glad you could join us today, for this is

  • the last show of the 22nd Joy of Painting series.

  • So I'll tell you what, let's start out today, and have them

  • run all the colors across the screen that you

  • need to paint along with this.

  • While they're doing that, let me show

  • you what I've got planned for today.

  • Today, as you can plainly see, I have

  • a canvas here that's painted with a black gesso.

  • I've allowed it to dry completely, and then

  • on top of that, put a thin even coat of liquid clear.

  • We put the clear on there only because it makes

  • putting transparent color on top of this,

  • much much easier.

  • You really don't have to have it, but it makes

  • your life so much easier.

  • Then on top of the clear, I put a mixture of

  • sap green, pthalo blue, and a little Van Dyck brown

  • to dull it down.

  • And I thought today we'll just do a happy little scene,

  • maybe that's deep in the woods.

  • I've had a lot of requests for paintings that have

  • big trees in them, so.

  • Let me just show you an easy, easy way

  • to do just that.

  • Let's take an old two inch brush today.

  • Take the corner of it, just the corner,

  • and go into a little bit of titanium white.

  • Then let's go up in here.

  • Now once again, this has green and blue and

  • a little brown on it.

  • So, color will just jump out at you.

  • All you have to do is just take and put a

  • little bit of white on there, and watch what happens.

  • It's beautiful, beautiful.

  • This is a fantastic painting to do as a demonstration

  • for friends or relatives or just people who are going to

  • watch you paint, and dont let them see you put

  • the color on, and they'll think you started with a

  • blank canvas, and then you touch it with a little

  • bit of white, and they'll, they'll absolutely think

  • that magic is happening.

  • And, you don't have to tell them any different.

  • Let them try to figure out how to do it.

  • But these are truly a joy to do, and the black canvases

  • might very well be my favorites.

  • There. Just spin it and work it, keep it going, move it.

  • Just have fun with it. Just have fun with it, and let it go.

  • There. Okay.

  • Now i'll just keep adding a little touch

  • of white here and there.

  • And if we're going to have deep, deep woods, this

  • is a nice way of making a background.

  • Maybe we'll put some big trees in here.

  • This is a nice way of making a background

  • that you can see between the trees,

  • and it looks like a lot of things that are happening,

  • and you didn't have to hardly work at all

  • to do it.

  • And this is truly the lazy man's way of painting.

  • That's why I'm here. There.

  • All right. Now then.

  • A little bit more on this corner, and let's put a little

  • over in here too.

  • Be sure to leave some nice dark areas in here.

  • Don't just cover it all up. Don't cover it all up.

  • And the other thing is you can do this

  • with any transparent color, or semi-transparent color.

  • It don't have to be totally transparent.

  • Semi-transparent.

  • And the way to tell if the paint is transparent,

  • what i'd do, is just take a little put on my finger

  • and touch the black.

  • If it's transparent enough for this,

  • it'll still look black.

  • The canvas will still look black.

  • You will know immediately whether

  • it's transparent enough to do this.

  • Some colors, like the cadmium yellow, the white,

  • are very opaque.

  • Other colors are semi-transparent, and some

  • are very tranparent.

  • So, test a little.

  • You'll find exactly what you're looking for that way.

  • All right.

  • We just sort of wind it up and play with it

  • here and there.

  • And when you're doing this, maybe it's a good thing

  • to step back and take a look-see and

  • see what it looks like.

  • If it needs to be blended more, just

  • blend it a little more.

  • Sometimes you need to go back and add

  • some little light spots or you could even

  • go back with the original color,

  • the green and the blue, and put dark

  • back in here if you wanted to.

  • If you overdo this light.

  • There.

  • Just sort of wind it up like a ...

  • Ok down here at the bottom, I want it to be

  • much darker, so I'm not putting much color here.

  • I want it to really look like it's far away.

  • Something like that.

  • All right.

  • Then very lightly just brush across it,

  • and that will take out the brush strokes and

  • let you sort of take a look at what you have.

  • And if you have one that you don't like, or it's

  • too bright, you can change it.

  • Or you could move it, anything that you want to do.

  • Anything that you want to do in here.

  • All right.

  • Now then. Maybe, let's find an old thin brush today.

  • let's go ahead into a little touch of the,

  • a little touch of the midnight black.

  • Just load the brush full of color, and let's begin making

  • a few trees in the background back here.

  • In my mind I see a tree, it goes right there.

  • Just pull straight down, applying more pressure

  • as you work down the tree, and that will give you

  • a nice trunk, that easy.

  • That easy.

  • It's the easiest kind of tree to make there is.

  • Take a little white, a little white, be right back,

  • get a little touch of the bright red.

  • Just a little. It's very, very strong.

  • Eat up your whole world.

  • Okay, now, I'm gonna get a little bit more paint,

  • put it right here, and that one, we'll put

  • some of the pthalo blue.

  • Maybe even add a little black to that to dull it.

  • Thats better. Don't want it too bright.

  • Use black to dull. There, All right.

  • Now then. Clean the old knife.

  • In my world, today, I think the light is coming

  • from the right.

  • If you're right-handed, as I've mentioned before,

  • you will probably find that it's easier to have

  • the light coming from the right side.

  • So let's just start off here with the knife, and just

  • put the indication of a little highlight

  • right there on the edge here.

  • There. Now then.

  • A little bit of the bluish color, I'll put on the back.

  • Not a great deal. This is just to indicate a little

  • reflected light.

  • Now we take a little bit of the pure black,

  • and touch, all I'm doing is just taking the knife

  • and touching, just touching.

  • The canvas will pull of what it wants.

  • And this way you can blend all those colors together.

  • And it will actually give this tree texture.

  • When this painting is dry, you can actually

  • feel bark on it.

  • Of course you can feel it while it's wet too,

  • but it's gonna get all over your finger.

  • So just wait till it's dry.

  • Let's take, let's take, get some paint thinner,

  • go right into a little bit of the black,

  • a little black, pick a little bit of the dark sienna there.

  • Once in a while even some of the Van Dyck brown,

  • just to get a little brownish flavor.

  • A loaded brush full of color. Okay.

  • Now then.

  • We can put just indication here and there.

  • A few little limbs. Just a few.

  • Maybe these are evergreen trees out here.

  • Or whatever kind of trees you want.

  • Giant redwoods maybe. I don't know.

  • Just these, just friendly trees.

  • There. A few little arms sticking out on him.

  • Now then. We can take
