This is your creation - and it's just as unique and special as you are. Trees cover up a multitude of sins. Anytime you learn something your time and energy are not wasted.
Working it up and down, back and forth. We can always carry this a step further. There's really no end to this. Maybe there's a happy little bush that lives right there.
Use what you see, don't plan it. There it is. A fan brush is a fantastic piece of equipment. Use it. Make friends with it. From all of us here, I want to wish you happy painting and God bless, my friends. We need a shadow side and a highlight side. When you do it your way you can go anywhere you choose.
Clouds are free they come and go as they please. Didn't you know you had that much power? You can move mountains. You can do anything. You can do anything here. So don't worry about it. Be so very light. Be a gentle whisper.
If you overwork it you become a cloud killer. There's nothing worse than a cloud killer. La- da- da- da- dah. Just be happy. You are only limited by your imagination. Once you learn the technique, ohhh! Turn you loose on the world; you become a tiger. This is where you take out all your hostilities and frustrations. It's better than kicking the puppy dog around and all that so.
We're trying to teach you a technique here and how to use it. Just pretend you are a whisper floating across a mountain. Maybe, just to play a little, we'll put a little tree here.
There is immense joy in just watching - watching all the little creatures in nature. Now, we're going to fluff this cloud. Each highlight must have it's own private shadow. Trees get lonely too, so we'll give him a little friend.
This is your creation - and it's just as unique and special as you are. We artists are a different breed of people. We're a happy bunch. Little short strokes. The light is your friend. Preserve it. Put your feelings into it, your heart, it's your world. We don't have to be concerned about it. We just have to let it fall where it will.
Just beat the devil out of it. This is unplanned it really just happens. Everybody needs a friend.
Every single thing in the world has its own personality - and it is up to you to make friends with the little rascals. A happy cloud. But they're very easily killed. Clouds are delicate. It's life. It's interesting. It's fun.
I thought today we would do a happy little picture. Let your heart be your guide. I will take some magic white, and a little bit of Vandyke brown and a little touch of yellow. It's a super day, so why not make a beautiful sky?
Maybe he has a little friend that lives right over here. We don't have anything but happy trees here. Isn't that fantastic that you can create an almighty tree that fast?
Exercising the imagination, experimenting with talents, being creative; these things, to me, are truly the windows to your soul. Learn when to stop. It's a very cold picture, I may have to go get my coat. It’s about to freeze me to death. Maybe we got a few little happy bushes here, just covered with snow. Tree trunks grow however makes them happy. Absolutely no pressure. You are just a whisper floating across a mountain.
Everything is happy if you choose to make it that way. Nothing wrong with washing your brush. Let's put some happy little bushes on the other side now. Decide where your cloud lives. Maybe he lives right in here.
A little happy sunlight shining through there. Use what you see, don't plan it. Let all these things just sort of happen.
Just think about these things in your mind - then bring them into your world. This present moment is perfect simply due to the fact you're experiencing it. Just let your mind wander and enjoy. This should make you happy. The man who does the best job is the one who is happy at his job. How do you make a round circle with a square knife? That's your challenge for the day. That's what makes life fun. That you can make these decisions. That you can create the world that you want.
And I will hypnotize that just a little bit. A happy cloud. Use what happens naturally, don't fight it.
Brown is such a nice color. Volunteering your time; it pays you and your whole community fantastic dividends. These trees are so much fun. I get started on them and I have a hard time stopping. We can always carry this a step further. There's really no end to this. That is when you can experience true joy, when you have no fear. Be careful. You can always add more - but you can't take it away.
