I've been passionate about telling stories through art since I was a kid. In my home in Orange County, California, I used to watch Bob Ross (the afro-wearing painter of "happy little trees" on public access TV) and I would mimic his paintings using crayons. I grew up knowing that creating art would always be my life's endeavor. I was never fortunate enough to pursue a formal art education, but I've more than compensated by private study with accomplished instructors, collaborating with highly-esteemed local artists, and devouring countless art books and videos.

The art instructor who had the most profound impact on my technique was impressionist master Vadim Zanginian. Private study with Vadim in Los Angeles, California completely reinvented everything I knew about painting, and ... See full profile

1. Mountains intro: Hi there, I'm Christopher Clark and welcome to my easy watercolor painting class. Today we'll be doing this wonderful mountain scene in about 30 minutes. And if you don't believe me, give it a try, you'd really be surprised at how easy and how much fun this is, even if you have absolutely no painting experience whatsoever, you just need a few simple watercolor painting materials and a little bit of creativity, and that's it. So that being said, let's get started. 2. Mountains1: Okay, and we're ready to get started here. Got our standard watercolor painting supplies out. Watercolor paper pad, minds, 11 by 15 inches. We have three kinds of brushes. Nice thick one, a medium-sized one, and then a little skinny pointing one. Got a nice little palette here. Very simple, with just some cups to put the painting and it's a mixing areas here, very simple colors without a yellow, orange or red, light green, I got light blue, dark blue, purple, and then a dark brown. So those are pretty standard colors. You can get them little tubes like this, or they can come in the little dried cakes that sort of come in in a sort of, I guess either one of those are just fine. Reading old masking tape here, I'm using the blue kinds so that it shows that my stay on the camera. But you can use this regular masking tape that you probably already have in the house. It's about an inch thick and it's a couple bucks for a role. And then just a pair of scissors. So with that, let's get started here with our mountain scene. Start by taking a piece of tape, tear it off. We're going to start by finding the peak of our first Mountain, which may be right here. And then you're going to take the tape and sort of curve it and sprinkle it up and push it along the paper. And tape doesn't curve, you have to crinkled it so that's fine. Make little crinkles and these are mounted so that what will work nicely. And maybe we'll say this is our second peak right there. And then maybe I'll take this and sprinkle it some more and curve it so you know, I'm sort of curving it and then crinkling it down. We'll take another tape. And maybe this will be our last little mountain range. Nice crinkled there. There we go. Now we'll go the other way. Start on this side, and then we will come down and sprinkle it over. Maybe we'll have it come back up. You can make your mountains goes drastic as you want. I don't like to make them too sharp because that's kind of unrealistic. They're a little flatter in real life. Unless they're going for something crazy, fantasy, interesting, they'll make us from shoot down sharply and then curve over. There we go. That'll be interesting. Last little piece, maybe I'll need one more o bit, taped. One more a little bit. Okay, very nice. And now I'm going to put an extra sort of layer of thickness to give me more room to paint comfortably because we're going to be painting the sky. And I want to have more room to paint an overlap and not accidently paint down here. So I'm just gonna put a little extra bit. There. Should be real quick. Just take a little piece of tape, turn it off. Masking tapes, really easy, real forgiving. So those are mountain range and now we're going to make the bottom of a lake. Sure. I'll take a nice long piece. And tariff. But this role aside and maybe start here. Maybe we'll have it come out at an angle and you can crumple it up a lot and then shoot it left again is what I do there. I sort of made this abrupt angle and then it comes left for awhile. And then it's going to wrinkle up a lot again and shoot left again. And maybe it will come way down here. And maybe it'll come up just a tiny little more, and then that's it. So we've got sort of a little lake shore. There we go, easy. And then we're gonna take one more little rectangle. We don't even need that much, maybe that much. And we're going to cut, this is where we need our scissors. Cut the edge off of that. But that aside, turn it around, cut the other edge off. So you've got a nice sort of long rectangle. I'm just put it down for a second. Take your long rectangle and you're going to cut off the corners. That's sort of a steep angle. See that? And then I'm gonna put this aside and do the other side. So that's sort of a it's the same that way it comes out like this, like a little like a little cabin Shaffer. I'm gonna put that maybe right here, maybe like along this line, maybe like that. That's where my little cabins gonna go. And then all we need for masking tape. And now we're ready to do. We're gonna paint our sky. Let's make sure this is all nice and down. Good. Painters guy gets C. Let's take our medium-size brush. We're going to start with our clouds. We're gonna get some oranges and yellows. Oranges and yellows. Get him in here. It gets some water, good amount of water. And this painting, some clouds here. Just like that. We're gonna go and you can pay it right over that tape. The tape is solid and then go nowhere. And then go anywhere for you English majors. And I'm painting some clouds right behind those mountains, will fill them in. Oop, I got a big chunk of orange arrow on the brush. That's okay. And I'm gonna put a few more up in the sky. So maybe they are going to connect that one's going to connect like that. And here's one more over here. Recognize, okay, and then the, the, the one's way over here, I'm going to add a touch of red. Just a little hint of red because that's the clouds get further away. We're going to pretend our sun is like on this side of the painting and it's shining this way. So the clouds and we brightest over here. And there'll be a darker, sudden sort of pinky red over here. Now take some of these oranges and we have water that's down here. Go ahead and line up where the clouds are. Put some more engine there. And then there's some right here. And that's really it for right now. We'll come back to that in a second. Wash off your brush. Will go for our big fat brush right now we're gonna do some sky big fat brush, get some light blue, some paper towels in case I need to dab some of this off. Water, some white blue and it's come in there and lay and that's guy, boom. And then scroll around those cloud shapes that you just made all around them. See how quick that fills in. Fills in all the space in such a short amount of time. And there's imperfections. That's okay. It's, it's sky. This is watercolour. It's very forgiving. On this left side of the sky, go ahead and touch your dark blue. If you have one or purple or something, and get a tiny bit on there and come back and add a little more, just a touch and then stop and then come back here to this is water, so this is reflecting what's above it. Water is like a mirror. It reflects things that are above it. But let's dry off your brush a little bit and maybe you can drive rush, sweep over some of these parts and blend them together a tiny bit. Right off again. So the edges are a little more blended together. And then we have a lovely day, very dramatic, sunlit sky afternoon. Okay. Now we're going to take off our tape for the mountains. Grab this from the top peak, that one, the first one you put on and pull it down. And the whole thing should come up in one piece. Just like that. Pull it off in one big chunk. Hopefully if not, you can pick them off one at a time. Very nice. Put that aside and then we'll pull off the one for the lake as well. Okay. Four sections down. Leave the cabin on there. We're not done with that. Yeah, that needs to stay. Everything else we can move on to the next stage will do will start adding some, some color to our little mountains. And senior here. 3. Mountains2: Okay, we're ready to do some of our mountain ranges. So take your medium-size brush and then we're gonna come in here. I got some light blue, light blue and a little bit of orange, maybe a little bit of brown. We don't want a lot of color. I'm actually, I'm going to, if you get too much, you can always take your paper towns soak it up at too much on their little bit of brown. We want sort of a bluish brownish, maybe some purple. It's going to be kind of a gray like a cool gray color. Gets them on here and then hold the brush. Like you don't use someone as you hold it like a pencil. You can put your hand on top to hold it like this. And you can take one side or light coming from this side. So the mountains is going to be dark on this side. So we'll start with this one. And you just pull the brush down and sort of make your mountain shape like this. And if you're right-handed, you do the other way. Just hold it with your hand like this and pull up this way. You know, let's, let's crush over here. If you're right-handed, you can do either side, doesn't matter. But flat little, little strokes to make these little peaks and little things on the mountain. I'm being very fancy. I'm showing off. I can do it with both hands because I practice with both hands for that very reason. Because I have to show people how to do this. And I don't want anybody to feel that they are at any kind of a disadvantage because you're not. So maybe there's some over here. Just keep that brush flat, lay it flat down and see it. Little hurdles and little things appear in-between the paint and you want to leave those there. We'll do a little more over here. Let's say there's one right here. And sort of following whenever there's a peak, I'm doing it to the left side of the peak because the sun is on the right side. Because the Sun, that's where the sound is coming from. That a little more and keeping us really not a lot of pain, a lot of water here. Maybe I can do a couple on the light part, just a couple because it's supposed to be snow. Snowy mountains. Okay. Let's blend that down here. And now we can take our big brush, get a touch of that color. We just used some of those browns and purples and things and put some water on there just a little bit and sort of wash that down. Don't go too far down, go down as far as the house. Because we're going to add some grasses and things on there. And so there's our mountain range to select that. Okay, now we're going to take our medium-size brush and we're gonna make some trees. Let's see, we're going to start with light blue and some green. Light blue and green. Some paint on there. And these are going to be the faraway trees. So you can hold your pens, hold your brush like, like normal if you want. And we're gonna basically make little zigzags. You want to use the nice sharp tip of the brush to make little zigzags. You're making a little Richter scale, like there's an earthquake. And so make it go down. It can come up. Don't do it too fast. You'll have wobbly line like that. You want sharp little peaks because they serve trees. And if the paint is still wet, it's okay. They'll spread out a little bit. It'll be like distant fog or mist or something. Totally. Okay. Okay. Good. Maybe I'll come down and fill in. Get a little more paint. And you can maybe fill in some of this space and paying it right over that cabin because we want that to be white because we're going to do something with it later. Someone's gotta live there. And this is going to be a lovely little scene four. Okay, so now we're going to come and make it a little darker action, we're gonna take some green and some of your Brock dark brown. And we're gonna make some of the trees that are really close, green and dark brown. We want, we want this to be nice and dark. And we're going to go a little lower. We're gonna go down here. And we're going to go up. You can go right up to those other ones. You can pass them some places. But it has to be noticeably darker than the ones you just did. And there we go. It's work your way across. And let's say as we're getting more toward the other side, you know, if you're right-handed, you can do the same thing. You're right-handed. You just do your little zigzags and may can go across. Just like that. Say that everyone's got the same advantage here if you, as we get more to the side, let's do green and purple. As we get more this side, green and purple as it gets darker. Okay, let's do Now, let's go ahead and do purple. Let me some brown and some purple for this very foreground, right next to the cabin, right there. Boom, See that? I may even come and fill this in a little bit right next to that cabin. So we're gonna make a line like follow the cabin. Make a little line of our little zigzags. As Bob Ross would say, we're making a happy little trees. Maybe a couple of them get rho big boom, look at that, watch out. All the way across to the other side. Fill in some of that space. Okay. Now we're ready to do some grass. Let's see. I'd say White. Let's clean off our brush because we want some very light fun colors here. We're gonna do yellow and green. Because there's going to be very sunny grass right next to the Sun here, the sunny side of our, our painting. So come in here and paint right through their yellow and green. A little bit of water. Paint right through that little more water or if it's not covering enough. And then don't paint over our water. Watch the water and avoid the water because we already painted that part. So just paint around it just like that. As we get more toward this side, start using yellow and blue. And then continue. And then blend together. Maybe a little more water. Don't paint over our lake. Will do something with that a second, go right up into those trees. And here we go right up next to our lake. And c now this the, the, the grass fades from lighter to darker color because the sun is coming from the side. It looks like just a nice little light effect. Maybe I'll very lightly try to blend some of that. Very nice. Now we can do is add a little bit like thicket next to the water. So take somebody or brown and some of you are purple. This can be pretty dark. And not necessarily a tunnel water. We need some darker values here, value in art and means light or dark. So this purple is asleep, I gotta wake it up. There we go. So get someone here and go right over the edge of your water somewhat back and forth right over the edge, not on top or below but right in the center there. Maybe I'll skip some. I'll do a little there and it'll bunch there. And I'll do a bunch there. I'll do a little here. Get some more paint and maybe I'll do, I'll start at this very side and go like this little book there. Come over here. So there's a little and there's none and then there's a couple. Maybe I'll even do a couple over here just for fun. A couple little wispy ones. We'll do a couple of just touch a few here and there. Little, little blemishes on the landscape just to make it break it up a tiny bit. There we go. Okay. And I think we're ready to do our cabin next. We'll do that in the next video here. 4. Mountains3: Okay, we're ready for our cabin. So go ahead and finally, we can reveal our cabin, take off a little piece of tape. And there's our cabin waiting to our friend is waiting to move in so we have to get it ready. So go ahead and little bit of water and a little bit orange. Paint the whole thing orange. Now and use your little, tiny little brush. And here you can be careful, be careful. Go right in there. And our little lines that we made in an orange. Not a lot of water, just a little bit of pain. If you have too much, you can just come and dab it. Okay, there we go. Now next we're going to paint the side that's in shadow. So we're gonna get some red and maybe not too much purple, but maybe a little bit around it, touching some purple. This is going to be this height of the cabinets in shadow. Watch. I'm gonna do here. I'm going to start from this side of the roof and make an angle coming down. It's a little wet. That's okay. You can wait for your dry so that it doesn't blend and bloom as much as my understanding. But if it does, that's okay. Can be a little abstract. So there's our little cabin and you can wait for it to dry a little longer if you want to. I'm gonna put a little tiny little chimney. So get some nice dark, maybe some red and some purple, come up here and poke a little chimney right there, right on top. And there are some fun we can do all waiting for this to dry for you in the next little part. Just put a touch of water on your brush, clean water, and then just come right here and see I'm digging a hole in the paint. Dig a hole in the paint with your brush. With just water on the bronchi, little skinny little brush. Dig a hole and I'm making a little chimney. And you can push push the paint out of the way. It's still pretty wet. So you can do this right now. If you waited till tomorrow, this wouldn't work. Take a paper towel and sort of RAM smear off at top. And now he's got a little chimney, little little guy. He'd moved in already. Well, we won't even look at it's got a little fire going. Good for him. We will go there and have tea later. Okay. This maybe a little wet. We'll wait just a a quick second for that to dry. Okay. While we're waiting for that to drive, we can do it. I'm gonna do a couple little birds and the distance here because I just loved doing birds. They had a lot of fun motion to a painting. So get a little, whatever dark color you got on here. Really, really twist your brush into a little sharp point. And we're going to go over here and do a couple of birds. We can do a couple like maybe at one that's real close. There's one that can be a little V. And then maybe one can be like facing down, like he's flapping its wings. Maybe here's another one facing down. Maybe here's one facing up. And then they sort of vanishing into the distance there. A couple little birds at some fun motion. And now I'm gonna take some dark brown. I'm gonna do the roof of the house. So dark brown, little purple, little blue. And when you're little tiny brush, not a lot of water because we want this pretty dark. Come over here and just like this watch, there's maybe there's the bottom of the roof and I'm going to follow it. The top of my little cabin. And there's my little cabin. And he wanted to you can put a little window. Well window maybe a couple of windows there. Let's reach peak and out. And that's it. That's the end of our mountain scene. As you can see, that was very simple to do. And just took a little bit of masking tape and a little bit of creativity. And there you go. We're all set. 5. Mountains outro: Okay, and here's our finished painting. That was really fun and really easy with a little bit of masking tape and a little bit of really inexpensive watercolor painting materials. Youtube can make this lovely painting as I hope you did. In fact, I would love to see your paintings. So please send them to me. My email address is Chris at Christopher Everything is spelled normally. Send them visa. I wanted to see how you fared with your kids or your friends or your class or just on your own. So yeah, if you have any questions, anything like that, please send me your pictures and your questions, and that's it. Thank you so much for joining me with my easy watercolor painting class. I'm Christopher Clark and I hope to paint again with you soon. 6. Mountains bonus: Okay, and as a little bonus video, I'm gonna show you a variation we can do on this same sort of mountain landscape idea. As you can see, I've already laid out some masking tape here. I did a different mountain pattern. I just had a peak over here and it comes down. I'm going to have one comes from this way. I put the lake on the other side. I just led my tape from the other direction and my little cabin, instead of one piece of tape, I cut the one this way. I'm gonna cut a shorter one and stuck it next to it so it's a little long, little bit and then on top of it, so you can, you can see there's an infinite number of variations you could do in this same theme. Now what I'm gonna do is make a different color. Sunset before we had some nice orange clouds in a blue sky. I'm going to have some sort of more pink clouds. I have a different color here. It's called Rose. I'm really it's like a pinkish purple, I guess. That's what color wasn't the tube sometimes, not always, you know, industry standards but use it whatever you got. So let's see here. I'm gonna get some of that rows and maybe a little bit of yellow. To start with. I'm still going to have the sun come from the right side of the picture. And I'm going to wake up my paint. If I got paint, will have some nice pretty pink, yellow, orange clouds. I'm gonna make this nice and washy, let's say, and these are going to be long, wispy sort of Clouds. The other ones were more puffy. Go outside and see what it looks like and paint what you see. That's how anybody get anything. Anyway, their inspiration as they paint what they see. So here's some lovely pink. So far this is gonna get a lot darker. That was just to start with. And let's see. On this side we'll make it nice and much darker. And I'll add a little bit of blue, but when those spaces in-between stuff, very nice. Let's add some nice yellow. Some of these. So this is where the sun's rarely peak and through on this side. Very nice. Okay, now let's go ahead and add, I'm going to wash this off because if I had blue, I'm gonna get green and we don't really want in green. And this says wash it off for a second. Come back here and I've got I just got my dark blue here. Because the lighter blue to sometimes tends to be a little green. Definitely want this to be more of a reddish color glue. So we'll go ahead and get this nice and washy. And we'll fill in some of these spaces here. Maybe these are where the clouds are opening up just a tiny bit less than the blue sky. Through. There we go. This is a little bit of water. And suddenly we have this beautiful pink bluish purplish sunset going on. I'm gonna go ahead and make this called the scandal darker. Actually. Here we go. I want this to be really late blade sunset much later in the day. Then there are other other scene. And I think I'm going to add some more of this pink color to add some life to some of these clouds. Look at that. And then it comes through here, it's going to get a little lighter. Hit our yellow again. Ok, lets look nice. I had a little more pink on the bottom of this one, maybe long, wispy clouds. And eventually you have to stop. If you paint too much, it'll all be the same color. So eventually you have to say when and they don't know about to say that right now. Okay, now that I've got this color and my brush, I'm gonna go ahead and do with the water because the water is just a reflection of the sky above. It. Also knows the waters. This a tad darker because not only is the, the the water is a mirror for the sky above it, you can reflects light, but you can also see through the water to the darkness underneath. So I'll put a little there. And then I'll just gonna dab this off a tiny bit and put a little bit of this yellow and maybe some orange to mimic how it gets lighter. And Orangi or on this side. There we go. Very nice. I think I'm ready to take off this tape now, we're going to say, well, let's start from the top is just if you start from the first one you put down, they might all come off as one piece. Sometimes they get, if not another. Very nice. And you got a little bit of pink on, there, was no big deal. We're gonna paint over it anyway, so take off the lake. And aloneness is still really wet. So sometimes you want to wait for it to dry for a few minutes before you paint because you don't wanna smear those nice, lovely, crisp edges that you just made. So somebody said, wait a minute for it to dry, that's very wet down there, so I don't want to paint over that yet. Okay, I'm gonna take my medium brush, going a little bit, someone here and the shadow of the Mountains F and going to be a bluish in purple and things like that. So get my brush. Some paint on it. Here we go. And let's see, where's my side of the mountain? I wanna say this is one side and a euro flat. You just touched the brush on there. And you want it to speckle. You want there to be holes where there's no paint. There's some right there. I'm sort of sort of you can go back and forth. And here's a bit, they're more on their maybe this side is a lot of shadow. So our sun's coming from the right side. So the other side of mountain will be in shadow or maybe this, you know, we can do this mountain is going to overlap like this. Look at that. See how quick and easy this comes together. You don't gotta be a wizard, artists or Master. To make a beautiful painting. It can be really, really simple. Whoa, that's a lot of pain. You want this really faint because you want them to be to put two up here further away. The more pay you pile on here, it'll look like they're really close. Okay. And it will continue for more mountain. A little purple over here. I'm going to see that the bluer and it gets a little more pink as it gets to this side of the mountains. Just like the sky, skies, a little bluer, little yellow, and then it gets more purple and pink on this side. This whole side is going to be in shadow there. Paint right over that cabin. And then I'll take my bigger brush. It's already got some colors. Aren't willing to put a little bit of this on there. And sort of blends together. Very nice. I don't wanna go all way down somewhat to put some color. They're not really sure why yet, but we'll get there in a second. Okay. And then this is totally dry. I'm gonna come back in here with a very, very faint wash, maybe some orange and some of this pink to somebody. You can do this as a real subtle little thing or really faint wash. Not a lot of color on here. And I'm gonna put a little color that's just test. It. Should be OK. Put a little bit of color on this side of the snow as it's facing that beautiful sunset. So it might pick up a little bit of that color. I picked up a little bit of those oranges and pinks and things. Just real faint. Little will go a long way here. Very nice. Okay, now I'm going to do the trees. These trees are also going to start picking up some of these colors. Let me clean up a little bit of my palette here so I can use it again. A little. Colors. You want, you don't want to mix constantly unto a dirty palette because in New York, colors will turn into mud. So on this side, we're going to begin to do some orange and some green. To start with. We see, here's our cabin was, we'll say it starts up here, maybe Richter scale. Orange, maybe a little pink. Orange is picking up a lot of this light from the sunset. And as it gets further away, and I'm going to go up a little bit. As it gets further away, will start to do some more blue. Further away from the light on the right side. Say blue and a little bit of pink. Sure. Whenever it comes up all the way like that, forests can go maybe a finds a slope and a source of fall that mountain or something. Who knows what's going to happen? Hey, now we can go a little darker. Do some red and some green here. I'm now gonna make keep my tree is lined up with the cabin. Maybe it'll come a little taller for a second. And it come down a little lower for those trees. There we go. Now let's, let's get these nice purposely, purposely greens. And these are the, these are the trees in the front, so you definitely want them to be nice and dark. And we'll add some purple in there now. Fill in some of those spaces, get all those little gaps behind the cabin there, even come down a tiny bit. And there we go. Ok, now we're ready to do, let's do some grass along here and wash this off. What color grass Do we want? It's still everything's and be influenced by this color here and everything is going to be pink and purple. So let's say, let's do some orange and touch a green and a bunch of yellow. Maybe a little bit of that pink. Just come right across here. Filling in. As it gets further away, we can start to add some more green further away from our light source, which is the sum which we're setting on the sun is setting on the right. Below green, little orange. Lets say now we'll just do a little more. Green, maybe a touch, a blue grass changes colors as it gets further from our light source, which is the sun. And we'll have a little purple. Really looks like there's a sense of light and you're painting when your objects change as they get closer to or further away from your light source. So with that nice, beautiful gold, all way down to dark green. Let's add some more tickets. By the lake. Close it help add some dimension. We'll just do some purple and some brown in there. And do right over the middle. Though it looks like it's the reflection on the water. Maybe I'll add some, some nice pink some stuff in here to start with. He's a really skinny. To keep them skinny, skip a little bit and we do some little, little ones along the lake here. Do some thicker ones again. Maybe it was one or two right there. Little little tiny skinny ones. And then a whole bunch right here maybe. And then not a lot. And then a lot. You just vary it up. And maybe they're wispy and thin right here and you get tall and we'll throw a few around here. They get tinier to get to the distance and then maybe you don't see them at all. Just a one or two. Input a couple in the water. Just a couple to many is a, to me that's not a highlight anymore. Then it's then it's too much. What's a nice dark purple there. Okay. Now we're ready for our cabin. Now if I'm going a little faster on this one, because this was just to show you a variation. I'm using the same techniques that I did on that first version. I just wanted to show you some different types of things on this one. Okay. So let's pull off our cabin. So it's a different shape cabin now we just use two pieces of tape. Here's a one. This was the width of the tail. If I just cut some corners OFF and here I just cut the tape skinnier this way and cut a little corners. You can get creative and make your own MOOC Kevin, you make a whole little cabin city you want. Okay, we're gonna use our little skinny tiny brush. Let's get some water on it. Break it up a little bit. Let's paint the whole thing. A pink, orange. Because we're going to have the side facing so the light be the brightest. So we were careful in here. You can use your pinky sometimes you can balance your pinky on the page. If it's wet. If not, you just hold your hand up. You get better at this with practice. Ok, maybe I'll start and adding some of the darker pink and red now. Be real careful in here. Okay, maybe right now I can do this to make the side of my little slope. There's a little roof. I'm not trying to make all those little tiny details, little pieces of wood and all that stuff. I'm just I'm just trying to fill it in. The general shape is enough. You don't need to, you know, make little pieces of wood and, you know, sometimes when you get to tiny with the details, it looks a little funky. Because if you're this far away from the camera, you wouldn't see those little tiny details. You'd see the Cabinet as a whole and the roof as one piece. You wouldn't see every statue of the roof. Let's see. Well, I had a little chimney. Chimney is right here this time. Can't really see the chimney Kenya. And then we'll do that little trick. What they, the water with the chimney will make. Which direction should we make our make you go this way? I just have a wet brush. The brushes where I'm just sort of going to motion along here and push away some of those wet paint. Didn't get a touch more water not dripping from want sopping wet but just wet enough. And it will push away some of that water. And then maybe we can get little tiny piece of a little paper towel here in scratch away some of that and you can fold it so it's a nice sharp 0.3. Even get this wet. Here we go. A little chimney, let some smoke coming out of there. So it's like someone who's living there. K Now that should we might be dry enough and we can do a little darker roof. Let me take some purple and some brown in that same color you use for those little thickets there. And we can do maybe the roof for this point will come down here. More paint. And then maybe this one will come down here. We have two levels or groups. This time somebody's somebody, it was getting fancy building this little cabin. There it is. And it will make a couple little tiny little windows. Maybe a little window there, just a little speck. Maybe there's a door here, a little taller. And there's our little cabin. Alright. I'll are set up in a straight line. And there's a nice little cabin and we can add some birds. Maybe it's a little late and season. Maybe they're have already flown south, but they are nice. And a little dimension to your piece. Some birds flying away there. There we go. And that's it. So you can see in 22 minutes, you can do this nice little scene with it with an interesting variation. Nice pink, beautiful, wintry sunset. Instead of the greener, more orangey sunset at the last painting. So there you go. Bonus painting.
