(piano music)…- [Voiceover] For the next stage of the painting,…I'll be adding some permanent Alizarin Crimson,…and also some acrylic glazing liquid gloss,…and just have some paper towel on hand,…for when we do some glazing.…So now I've just rearranged my color string…that I had with the Cadmium Yellow Light…and the Burnt Umber, and now I've just included…some permanent Alizarin Crimson.…The first thing I can do is take…one of my top mixes and then just add…a little bit of the crimson into it.…
It'll give this lovely dark, bark-y color,…which is really nice when you look here…for some of the areas in the top of this bark,…which has got this nice warm hue to it.…So just that top mix, a tiny bit of the crimson into it.…You can just to start to bring in this warmth.…And again, as it gets closer to the light,…just jump down to your next string,…add a bit more of the crimson into the mix.…
A tiny bit of white.…Again, lighter still.…Bit of the crimson, a bit of the white.…
So just with this mix, you can add,…there's odd little dapples of color,…
Will explains how to simplify and separate tonal values into areas of light and shadow, how to use warm and cool colors effectively, and how to mix a naturalistic green palette — a major color stumbling block in landscape painting. A vibrant spring green, for example, can be easy to mix, but hard to balance. The same is true for warm autumnal colors and the vivid blues of summer skies. Will shows how to build these palettes and use gestural impressionistic brushstrokes to paint different landscape scenes. By introducing washes and glazes, he demonstrates how to simulate the atmospheric light of each season. So break out your brushes and paints. Start watching to learn how to mix color for the landscape and approach painting the seasons with confidence.
