  • - Hey, welcome back.

  • I'm certainly glad you could join us today.

  • I thought today we'd do a painting,

  • it's very simple, I think you'll enjoy it.

  • Let's start out and have them run all the colors

  • across the screen that you'll need to paint along with this.

  • While they're doing that, let me show you

  • what I've got up here today.

  • I have my plain old 18 by 24 inch double prime

  • pre-stretched canvas, and I've just covered it

  • with a very thin coat of liquid white.

  • That's basically all.

  • We use 18 by 24 inch canvas, but you use any size

  • that you like when you're doing yours.

  • I thought I'd start with a little, just a little

  • two inch brush today.

  • I'm going to tap a little bit of Indian yellow into it.

  • Don't need a lot of color, something about like so.

  • Let's go up in here, and maybe right here we'll do that.

  • That's all there is to it.

  • Okay, got that one finished, it's that easy.

  • I'll go into a little bit of cad yellow.

  • Same way, just use a little two inch brush.

  • We don't have to even do anything,

  • just go around the edges without cleaning it,

  • touch a little bit of yellow ochre.

  • There, just working the yellows out here.

  • A little bit more of the yellow ochre, come right on around.

  • Something about like that.

  • If you put two eyes and a big smiley face in there,

  • it'd look like little orphan Annie.

  • There we are.

  • Okay.

  • Sort of blend those together.

  • That's all we're looking for today,

  • something about like that.

  • Still without cleaning the brush, go and touch

  • a little bit of the alizarin crimson.

  • Don't need a whole bunch.

  • And just begin blending that together.

  • I want to make a sky that looks like there's a,

  • maybe the sun's here, and it's shining out,

  • and it's a beautiful day.

  • We'll do this painting mostly in brown tones.

  • Sometimes it's gorgeous to do paintings in just one tone.

  • There we are.

  • Mmm, all right.

  • Now, then, I want to mix up a color.

  • I like brown made from

  • sap green and alizarin crimson.

  • That's one of my favorite colors.

  • There we are, and I'm going to mix it

  • a little bit to the reddish side.

  • Just a small amount.

  • Normally we don't worry about mixing color too well.

  • Today, I want to mix this pretty good,

  • because I don't want any green streaks up in the sky.

  • Okay.

  • That ought to do it.

  • Wipe the old knife,

  • then we'll go right into that brown that we made.

  • There, and we'll go up in here,

  • and let's begin using that.

  • See it?

  • It sort of matches all this, it sort of

  • works together.

  • It's really a gorgeous brown.

  • All right.

  • And some on the other side,

  • just right in there.

  • And then we'll finish the canvas up.

  • We'll just use a little vandyke brown.

  • Little bit on the other side.

  • And we're ready to wash the old brush.

  • As you know if you've painted with me before,

  • that's really the fun part of this whole procedure,

  • is just washing the brush.

  • This is the way, it's the way I get even

  • with everybody here in the studio that picks on me.

  • All right.

  • (laughs) You can certainly change the decor of a room

  • very rapidly if you're not careful.

  • I suggest when you do this at home,

  • you get a little device called a brush beater rack.

  • It fits down in the bottom of a waste paper basket,

  • it allows you to do all this without,

  • without ruining a happy marriage,

  • because you can certainly do that in a heartbeat

  • if you cover the living room with paint.

  • I'm just blending all these colors together,

  • like so.

  • All right, and then I'm going to wash the brush again.

  • I'm really just looking for excuses to wash the brush.

  • (laughs) There we are.

  • Now then, I want to brighten that a little more,

  • so I'll go right into titanium white.

  • We just put a little on the two inch brush.

  • Go right up in here.

  • Start in the lightest area, and begin working outward.

  • We want this to be the lightest, brightest part

  • of this whole painting, right here.

  • There.

  • And just begin blending that outward.

  • Now you can do this several times,

  • to achieve a desire lightness.

  • You can make it as light or as bright as you want,

  • but once you get our here in these dark colors,

  • I suggest that you clean the brush

  • before you bring it back into the center.

  • There we go.

  • Something about like so.

  • Once again, you can make it

  • as light as you want it when you do your painting.

  • Or leave it as dark as you want.

  • It's really an individual thing.

  • Now, very lightly.

  • I just want to take out the brush strokes.

  • Now, then.

  • If you want to put the indication,

  • knock off the excess paint,

  • if you want to put the indication of a little sun,

  • we can do a little finger painting right there,

  • and just take your finger and make a little round sun.

  • Those square suns sort of bother people.

  • Make it sort of round.

  • Of course, then, you have to clean your finger,

  • and you beat it against the easel the same way.

  • All right.

  • And just barely caress it,

  • and the indication of a little sun

  • will remain right there in your sky, that easy.

  • See there?

  • It's all you need.

  • Okay, let's have some fun.

  • We're still using the same old brush,

  • a little white, a little bit of that brown color

  • that we made out of the sap and the alizarin mixed together.

  • Maybe in our world, way back in the distance,

  • there's some little foothills that live back there,

  • so let's do them.

  • All you have to do is decide where they live in your world,

  • and begin tapping them in.

  • You know, when you paint,

  • tell little stories.

  • It makes painting easier, it makes you understand

  • why things work in your painting.

  • Shoot, sometimes I get carried away and

  • maybe talk about the old trapper that lived in the woods,

  • maybe fell in the river, just crazy things like that.

  • But it gives you a reason for that old, abandoned cabin

  • being there, or something like that.

  • But make up little stories.

  • I know, I know, you're going to say your

  • friends and relatives will sort of

  • laugh at you, standing around talking to yourself painting,

  • but that's okay.

  • That's okay.

  • Now, then.

  • I'm going to lift gently upward,

  • just to make it look like little trees are growing

  • on those hills, far away.

  • Short, little strokes, tiny, little strokes.

  • There.

  • Just a little bit, don't need a lot.

  • Just a little bit.

  • There we are.

  • Maybe I'll even take a little of the titanium white,

  • I'm going to put the least little touch of Indian yelllow

  • in it, and just here and there,

  • touch it a little bit, so it just stands out a little.

  • You can lighten it up a little.

  • There, lift upward.
