Hello, everyone! It’s a beautiful day today. It’s so bright and sunny. Look. The sunny areas and shady areas are clearly different. This is a great opportunity. We can paint the light and dark that is the contrast between light and shadow. I’ll try and paint the difference quickly. Stay tuned! It feels great here with a light breeze. Let’s get started. First I’ll draw a line that indicates my eye height. Then roughly draw lumps of objects. Without any details at all. Use rough touches of the pencil to place these lumps. Just crudely. Indicate that this area is shady. You don’t need to color the section if you keep in mind that it’s shady here. Here as well…. To remember the pattern of light and shadow. It shows what you are going to do. Then you can add a house as a tangible object but it doesn’t have to be precise. This is not particularly important because today’s theme is light and shadow. So it’s good enough if it shows what’s seen in the landscape. You only need to be always aware of what the focal point is. What do you think? I’ll just go pragmatic today. What’s important is to enjoy painting. Never mind about small errors. Try not to find what doesn’t look good when painting. Just try to find what’s looking good in your painting. Keep that attitude and you can stay positive. The sketch is done while I’m chatting. Look. Isn’t it simple? Really. Well? Well done! Because I’m doing light and shadow, why don’t I try something different today? That is… …painting the shady areas first. With a thick brush… Paint the shades in Prussian Blue temporarily. It’s a new approach. Thinking flexibly is the key. Here for example. We can paint anywhere shady now. Like this. And here, too. It’s all shady here and there. This little spot is in the sun. Here it’s not… Keep it simple. Praise yourself as you paint. Fall in love with your own work to have fun! I always keep positive. I’m so happy I’m painting. It’s fantastic. While painting, you will find the pattern of light and shadow. It’ll be all clear in your head. That’s it! Maybe I’ll add a little more shade here as well. Good! That’s the pattern of the shade. Now we know where the shady areas are, why don’t I start painting the sky? In Jaune Brillant here for example. This is the usual process. Try and place some color. It’s sunny today, and naturally I’ll add some blue as well. Well then… Now I know where the shady spots are… …and I can paint anywhere… What about the ground here? What color should I use for this area? I assume it’s a warm color because it’s in the sun. It doesn’t have to be the exact color. From this side up. And as usual, blend some colors little by little on the surface. Well? Paint vaguely by using the force of water flowing. Use a lighter color for a distant area as a basic rule. Then the ground in the sun is finished. The grass has been cut because winter is approaching. I’ll paint over the already-painted area. The color painted over the blue distinguishes light and shade. Painting blue first makes it convenient for that purpose. Will this do? Maybe. And a little green here. And on this side too. Here too you can see the green in the sun and green in the shade by the overlapping colors. Like this? And here the entire area is in the sun. I’ll go bold. Keep in mind the difference between the area nearby and the area in the distance. But see how light and shade are represented by the overlapping colors? The order of painting should be determined when you are painting outdoors. That’s whether to paint when the surface is still wet or to paint on the dry surface. The objects in the front need to be painted with clear details…, …and you need to allow yourself some time to paint and wait for it to dry. It is typically said that a landscape should start to be painted with the objects in the distance. But if you’re painting outside, you want to know if you need to wait for the surface to dry while painting. So paint the objects in the front temporarily and wait until the surface dries. Oh it’s becoming windy. This spot should be secured with a paper clip. Wait a second… Now it’s perfect! The areas in the front here are being painted over paint by the wet-in-wet method. Here I used a dark color, and now you can clearly see light and shadow. Now I’ll paint the areas in the distance. This spot where the autumn leaves are beautiful should be paint to bold. I always say objects need to be simplified in the painting… …but it’s particularly true when you’re painting the distant landscape. Don’t hesitate to use colors for simplified areas. Like this. And the mountains in the distance… …will be even more simplified than they actually appear. There are light and shadow here as well, but don’t be too precise. The contrast should be emphasized here so that for example some particular trees in the sun can be focused on. This area is painted for the contrast to be appreciated. Here I intentionally left the paper unpainted so that the light can be represented… …with the color of the paper. It’s all simplified here. Well? This area’s almost done. Now go on to this side. So now it’s roughly done. The area in the front and that in the distance… …and the areas in the sun have been painted. The shady areas were painted temporarily in light blue in the beginning. Now I’ll drastically paint the shady areas painted in light blue. And I’ll represent today’s theme : the contrast between light and shadow. The shady areas are dark and cold. Use Prussian Blue and Mineral Violet. Prepare plenty of a dark and color. The contrast will be emphasized in the main focal point. That’s the theme area where you want to gather viewers’ attention. This much emphasized. Then make a lighter tone of the color and use it in other shady areas. In these areas. What do you think? Light and shadow are more visible. This is almost done. But a few more details in the front will help create a stronger sense of perspective. The addition of hydro poles and their shadows will also emphasize the contrast of light and shadow and make the painting more interesting. That’s what I’ll do to finish the painting. So this is it! It’s done. Today’s point was light and shadow. How the landscape is viewed changes as the sun moves. Don’t overthink and paint quickly. It took me 20-30 minutes. What did you think?
