How To Easily Paint clouds! Oil


Painting With Yovette, How To Paint Clouds, Oil Well Hello out there, Today I thought I’d
teach you how to do just some simple little clouds, and all I’m going to be
using is just my fan brush. My name is Yovette, I’m from My Magic Brushes, and I
welcome you today. Okay, to get started you can see that I’ve already prepared
my canvas. This is a wet-on-wet technique and so this paint is wet,
it’s not a dry canvas. I have my fan brush, I’m going to load it on both sides,
and quite heavily because these clouds take a lot of paint. Just loading it on
both sides, come up to your canvas, just pick a spot wherever you like, that you
would like a cloud, and just start making circles just like this. Vary your height,
and some of them are big circles, some are small, flip the brush so you get
fresh paint. Ooh, I like this one. Cool! A little more
paint, I want to fill in a little bit on the bottom of this one. You would not
believe how hot it is here today. It’s got to be at least 105 out here. I am
cooking! I mean it is really warm. Okay, once you have those made, take a one
inch, I guess I told you a fib, because I said we were only going to use
a fan brush, but I do have a one inch brush, this one’s is an Alexander
brush, but you can use any one inch brush. Hold your handle upward, and just start
making little circles on the bottom of the cloud. You notice I’m not touching
anything up at the top, just the bottom. I’m just sort of setting this into the
background, diffusing the bottom edge. Once that’s done, then I want you to just
take that brush, again handle up, lift, and this is a very very very light touch. I’m
just making big circles, big circles, and then brush across, and what that does, it
just sets that cloud right in the sky. You can go over this as many times as
you want until you get the look that you like. That’s good. I would like to do another
one. Let’s do one over here. Again just flipping the brush loading both sides,
come in a little below this. This one is going to be a shorter one.
I’ll probably only do one side but, this is just to give you an idea. So then
again you do your one inch brush, handle up, make little circles and lift, very light, and then come across, the
lighter you do this the better it is. There. Cool! I’ll be so glad when this hot weather
passes, I’m dying out here. Okay, now I want to show you another thing.
This is fun! You take this one inch, or excuse me, you take the fan brush,
cup it between your hands, start to twirl, and that’s it, that’s all you do, is just
a couple of little spots. Again taking your one-inch brush, lifting, these are
called wispy clouds, and you’ll see these a lot in the sky. Sometimes, sometimes you
just see these and not any other clouds at all, just these. No big clouds.
I love these whispies. Those are neat. Okay? If you want it, I said I would only do
one side, if you wanted to do the other side, again you would just load the brush,
load your fan brush with white, and just pick a place, come in start with your
circles, like so, flipping the brush gives you a new paint,
fresh paint, load again, come in and just fill in a little bit on the bottom. I like the way this one is overlapping.
Then grab your one inch brush, again handle up, notice that this time over
here I did circles this way, but never touching the top, and when I’m blending I
don’t want to touch the top here, I’m only touching the bottom. I’m just
blending in. And then, big circles. lift lightly, don’t
worry about these little wispy things they’ll disappear. And if you want just a couple of
whispies over here, again just hold your, hold your brush between your hands, and just like that, and then blend,
I don’t diffuse the bottom of the wispy clouds. And there you have it. Very easy clouds
to do. I hope you all try this because it’s a lot of fun! I hope you enjoyed
today’s little lesson and we’ll see you again next time. Bye bye
