A little happy sunlight shining through there. That's a crooked tree. We'll send him to Washington. A tree needs to be your friend if you're going to paint him. Only eight colors that you need.
Be careful. You can always add more - but you can't take it away. Let's have a happy little tree in here. Talk to trees, look at the birds. Whatever it takes. If you do too much it's going to lose its effectiveness. This piece of canvas is your world. We're trying to teach you a technique here and how to use it.
There isn't a rule. You just practice and find out which way works best for you. Use what you see, don't plan it. I like to beat the brush. Let that brush dance around there and play. You can create beautiful things - but you have to see them in your mind first. Paint anything you want on the canvas. Create your own world.
I spend a lot of time walking around in the woods and talking to trees, and squirrels, and little rabbits and stuff. We'll put some happy little leaves here and there. We need dark in order to show light. I'm a water fanatic. I love water.
You want your tree to have some character. Make it special. Fluff it up a little and hypnotize it. When you do it your way you can go anywhere you choose.
Have fun with it. You got your heavy coat out yet? It's getting colder. Use what happens naturally, don't fight it. Let's get wild today. The only prerequisite is that it makes you happy. If it makes you happy then it's good.
Don't be bashful drop me a line. Think about a cloud. Just float around and be there. The least little bit can do so much. I thought today we would make a happy little stream that's just running through the woods here. Happy painting, God bless.
