It’s a very cold picture, I may have to go get my coat. It’s about to freeze me to death. But they’re very easily killed. Clouds are delicate. Just a happy little shadow that lives in there. Clouds are free. They just float around the sky all day and have fun. Everybody’s different. Trees are different. Let them all be individuals. Of course he’s a happy little stone, cause we don’t have any other kind.

There isn’t a rule. You just practice and find out which way works best for you. We have a fantastic little sky! If we’re going to have animals around we all have to be concerned about them and take care of them.

You can do it. Tree trunks grow however makes them happy. This is probably the greatest thing to happen in my life – to be able to share this with you. If these lines aren’t straight, your water’s going to run right out of your painting and get your floor wet.

We’ll throw some happy little limbs on this tree. With something so strong, a little bit can go a long way. Very easy to work these to death. Without washing the brush, I’m gonna go right into some Van Dyke Brown, some Burnt Umber, and a little bit of Sap Green. Just let this happen. We just let this flow right out of our minds. If it’s not what you want – stop and change it. Don’t just keep going and expect it will get better.

In nature, dead trees are just as normal as live trees. Everyone needs a friend. Friends are the most valuable things in the world. How do you make a round circle with a square knife? That’s your challenge for the day. Anytime you learn something your time and energy are not wasted. Everyone wants to enjoy the good parts – but you have to build the framework first.

Brown is such a nice color. Here’s something that’s fun. Now, we’re going to fluff this cloud.

There comes a nice little fluffer. It is a lot of fun. Isn’t that fantastic that you can make whole mountains in minutes? The man who does the best job is the one who is happy at his job.
