Let’s make some happy little clouds in our world. It’s a good way of getting rid of all your anxieties and hostilities. By now you should be quite happy about what’s happening here. This is your world, whatever makes you happy you can put in it. Go crazy. These things happen automatically. All you have to do is just let them happen. Think about a cloud. Just float around and be there.
Trees grow in all kinds of ways. They’re not all perfectly straight. Not every limb is perfect. Almost everything is going to happen for you automatically – you don’t have to spend any time working or worrying. We have all at one time or another mixed some mud. The only prerequisite is that it makes you happy. If it makes you happy then it’s good.
At home you have unlimited time. Painting should do one thing. It should put happiness in your heart. Just let this happen. We just let this flow right out of our minds. And maybe a little bush lives there. A tree cannot be straight if it has a crooked trunk. You can create beautiful things – but you have to see them in your mind first.
It is a lot of fun. There we go. I’m gonna start with a little Alizarin crimson and a touch of Prussian blue Just a happy little shadow that lives in there. I guess that would be considered a UFO. A big cotton ball in the sky.
Now, we’re going to fluff this cloud. It’s almost like something out of a fairytale book. It just happens – whether or not you worried about it or tried to plan it. All those little son of a guns.
See. We take the corner of the brush and let it play back-and-forth. We need dark in order to show light. All you need to paint is a few tools, a little instruction, and a vision in your mind. I thought today we would make a happy little stream that’s just running through the woods here.
Just let your mind wander and enjoy. This should make you happy. There it is. You can spend all day playing with mountains. Work on one thing at a time. Don’t get carried away – we have plenty of time.
