How to Paint Sand using Oil Paints
On behalf or TVLesson.com, my name is Angeline Marie. I'm a professional artist with AngelineMarie.net. In this clip I’m going to show you how to paint sand.
I’m going to use a palette knife for most of this and I’m picking off all the colors that are in our beach sand here. I’m picking up iron oxide, pure white, burnt amber and burnt sienna. And notice I’m just clamping it on the palette knife and I’m going to go ahead and just put it in on the canvas.
Mind you, hold the canvas while you’re working on an easel. And notice I’m just being really loose because remember a lot of the dunes you need to pick up some of the shadow because the sand is not exactly flat. And also there’s beach water so it’s okay to have the blue that’s already in the background showing up.
I’m not going to make this quite even. I’m going to make the shore come up over here and I do want some more white so I pick up some white and some of that whole burnt iron oxide and put it in a little bit more.
And notice I’m just putting on the paint nice and thick. It doesn’t really matter how neat you do it because after all it is sand. It wasn’t flat in the end. I'm painting it in and you can show the shadows are in. You can show the layers are in. Right now I’m going to take away the palette knife and I’m going to pick up a clean brush, wipe that off a little bit. I’m going to smooth down over here on the edges. Again, it really doesn’t matter if all the colors are blended in or not.
The sand doesn’t have just one color. Make sure it blended a little bit into the water because if you ever notice when the waves go up on the shore you can see the blue of the water and you can see the golds and these browns and the whites of the sand and that’s one way to paint sand.
