Join Will Kemp for an in-depth discussion in this video Brushes and additional materials, part of Painting Foundations: Creating Palettes for the Landscape.
- [Voiceover] Throughout the course,…I'll be using three main brushes.…A filbert shaped synthetic Isabey Isacryl brush.…A black hog brush which is slightly stiffer and smaller.…And then a smaller synthetic Isabey filbert that's…got the orange handle.…I've also got two additional brushes for more detailed…work, a square edged synthetic brush from Rosemary and Co…and a small round brush, and any small round…would be fine.…And all the details of the different brushes that…I use are all listed in the material list.…
I also use a couple of palette knives,…I've got a larger square edge palette knife and a…smaller diamond shape knife which I mostly use…for all the mixes.…The diamond shape is a size 45 palette…knife by a company called RGM.…For cleaning your brushes, you can use a brush…cleaner, such as this one here from Master's Brush Cleaner.…And I usually use this at the end of the day's painting,…just to clean all of the pigment out of the brush.…
I mix the paint on a disposable tear-off palette, which…is A3 in size.…
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.
