Trees cover up a multitude of sins. Once you learn the technique, ohhh! Turn you loose on the world; you become a tiger. See. We take the corner of the brush and let it play back-and-forth. You can get away with a lot.
In life you need colors. Maybe there’s a happy little waterfall happening over here. By now you should be quite happy about what’s happening here. This is where you take out all your hostilities and frustrations. It’s better than kicking the puppy dog around and all that so. Let’s get wild today. But they’re very easily killed. Clouds are delicate.
I was blessed with a very steady hand; and it comes in very handy when you’re doing these little delicate things. Learn when to stop. See there, told you that would be easy. Just a happy little shadow that lives in there. You better get your coat out, this is going to be a cold painting. That’s what painting is all about. It should make you feel good when you paint.
Use what you see, don’t plan it. In life you need colors. Just think about these things in your mind and drop em’ on canvas.
Nice little fluffy clouds laying around in the sky being lazy. You can create the world you want to see and be a part of. You have that power. We wash our brush with odorless thinner. We’ll make some happy little bushes here. It’s beautiful – and we haven’t even done anything to it yet.
You want your tree to have some character. Make it special. It is a lot of fun. I spend a lot of time walking around in the woods and talking to trees, and squirrels, and little rabbits and stuff. These trees are so much fun. I get started on them and I have a hard time stopping.
