Maybe, just to play a little, we’ll put a little tree here. We spend so much of our life looking – but never seeing. Let’s get wild today. Trees grow in all kinds of ways. They’re not all perfectly straight. Not every limb is perfect. It’s almost like something out of a fairytale book.
See there how easy that is. Don’t hurry. Take your time and enjoy. We need a shadow side and a highlight side. You’ve got to learn to fight the temptation to resist these things. Just let them happen. See. We take the corner of the brush and let it play back-and-forth.
Now it’s beginning to make a little sense. We’ll throw some happy little limbs on this tree. Just pretend you are a whisper floating across a mountain.
That’s a son of a gun of a cloud. If you didn’t have baby clouds, you wouldn’t have big clouds. Anyone can paint. Every highlight needs it’s own personal shadow. Do an almighty painting with us. Let all these little things happen. Don’t fight them. Learn to use them.
Steve wants reflections, so let’s give him reflections. Just go back and put one little more happy tree in there. You are only limited by your imagination.
It looks so good, I might as well not stop. Poor old tree. And right there you got an almighty cloud. We don’t have to be committed. We are just playing here. But we’re not there yet, so we don’t need to worry about it. We don’t want to set these clouds on fire.
In your world you have total and absolute power. You can do anything here – the only pre-requisite is that it makes you happy. This painting comes right out of your heart.
