Wyland's Art Studio
Genre: How-to
In WYLAND'S ART STUDIO, marine-life artist and environmental conservationist Wyland - best-known for his epic series of 91 life-size marine murals - takes viewers step-by-step through the creation of one of his vibrant photorealistic paintings. Wyland works on canvas with non-toxic water-based oil paint to re-create scenes from the Pacific Ocean. His subjects include: bottlenose dolphins, orcas, seascapes, sea lions, coral reef, sea otters, turtles, Great White Sharks, Gray Whales, Emperor Penguins, pelicans, whale tails and kissing dolphins. In keeping with his eco-conscious approach to painting, Wyland closes each episode with a tip for helping the environment.

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Episode #603
Pipeline Wave
Art Lesson: Brush technique. Learn the feel of the paint on the brush: to know how much paint is needed for a thick or thin application of color. The thicker the paint, the richer the darks, and the lighter the lights. Like any skill, learning brush strokes happens through patience and practice. Wyland's depiction of a wave at the famous pipeline, off the north shore of Oahu, creates a perfect testing ground for brushwork. Discover how to hold a brush loaded with paint and still make a sensitive stroke so almost no paint comes off. Skills acquired here may be refined for further practice.

Episode #604
Baby Seal Pup
Art Lesson: Negative Space. The use of negative space is a key element of artistic composition. Negative space is the space around and between the subject of an image. Negative space may be most evident when the space around a subject, and not the subject itself, is used to artistic effect as the "real" subject of an image. In a two-tone, black-and-white image, a subject is normally depicted in black and the space around it is left blank (white), thereby forming a silhouette of the subject. However, reversing the tones so that the space around the subject is printed black and the subject itself is left blank causes the negative space to be apparent as it forms shapes around the subject, called figure-ground reversal. Wyland will demonstrate how utilizing negative space can be an ideal technique for representing animals in the wild.

Episode #605
Sea Otter
Art Lesson: Blending Techniques. Many artists are defined by their blending techniques. A blend is the gradual transition from one color to another. Oil paint, because it takes time to dry, allows you to move the wet paint around on the canvas. This makes it easy to do the thing most difficult to do with other types of paint, the blend. All brushes will blend oil paint. Flat brushes are best. Colors are mixed on a palette and applied on the canvas. The brush is dragged back and forth in a crosshatch stroke between two values until a satisfactory transition is made. Value is the lightness or darkness of a hue by adding black or white to a color. Parallel strokes are used to refine the transition of values. A clean brush is used for the dark to middle and another clean brush for the light to middle. Wyland demonstrates how his blending techniques can create a flowing underwater scene.

Episode #606
Moonlight Mermaid
Art Lesson: Light, Shade, and Tone. In art, tone refers to the degree of lightness or darkness of an area. Tone varies from the bright white of a light source through shades of gray to the deepest black shadows. How we perceive the tone of an object depends on its actual surface lightness or darkness, color and texture, the background and lighting. Tone may be used broadly to denote the major planes of an object. Realist artists use 'local tone' to accurately denote subtle changes within the plane. Wyland explores the natural gray shades of a stingray in this illuminating lesson on light, shade, and tone.

Episode #607
California Coast Dolphins
Art Lesson: Color contrast. Find out how color contrast adds drama to a painting. There are many ways to depict contrast in painting by placing or arranging different objects, colors, shades, or textures against each other. The human eye loves contrast. Artists may use contrast of hue, which is simply a color that has not been diluted. Contrast of value is the range of lightness versus darkness of certain colors. Occasionally, in oil painting, artists will paint entirely in shades of grey. This is the oil equivalent of a tonal drawing. A strong tonal drawing almost always leads to a strong painting. Artists such as Degas understood the effectiveness of color contrast. Wyland explores contrasting shades to create a vivid painting of dolphins off the California coast.

Episode #608
East Coast Beach Life
Art Lesson: Glazing and Color Mixing. Learn how color mixing and glazing create vibrant deep colors in underwater scenes. By using primary colors (red, yellow and blue) while painting this tropical underwater scene Wyland will demonstrate how water dilution levels and various color and paint mixing techniques work together to create proper paint consistency. Complementary colors sit opposite each other on the color wheel. Because they are opposites, they tend to look especially lively when used together. By placing complementary colors together, each color looks more noticeable. Cool color combinations such as blue, green, or purple can suggest the ocean. Warm colors such as red, orange, and yellow can evoke sunlight and warmth. Glazing is a technique used to build up many layers of color in a painting, creating a natural flow between two color tones. One way this can be achieved is by using water to dilute the paint down to a very thin, nearly translucent state. Building up the layers provides more control of the hue and shade of the painting. Let the different coatings dry before applying the next one.

Episode #602
Orca Breaching
Art Lesson: Composition. Elements of composition are used to organize the components of an artwork in a pleasing manner. Used effectively, these elements provide a structure that leads the viewer's eye in a particular way for a variety of different effects. Examples of extraordinary composition may include the "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci or "Starry Night" by Vincent van Gogh. Important components of good composition Include: unity, balance and movement. All compositions begin by identifying a focal point. A range of artistic decisions proceeds from there, ranging from contrasts between light and dark to finding a rhythm that paces the eye of the viewer. The parts of the composition may feel as if they belong together or they may be purposely disjointed. A symmetrical arrangement may add a sense of calm; whereas an asymmetrical arrangement may create a sense of unease. By adjusting the arrangement of the objects, the artist can create a sense of motion or still life. Patterns establish an underlying structure of basic lines and shapes. Proportion is the way in which things fit together, big and small, nearby and distant. Each of these components may be used in varying degrees to create the intended effect.

Episode #601
Florida Keys Sunset
Art Lesson: Broken Color Painting. Learn about the classic technique of broken color. Refined by impressionists such as Monet, this technique has been used for years to capture the actual sensation of the light. The painter does not blend any of these brushstrokes. Instead, the viewer is allowed to "visually mix" these brushstrokes to view a whole image. Each brushstroke is allowed to remain separate. The length of the brushstrokes may vary. Brushes are frequently cleaned to allow a clean color with thick paint. The effect of keeping colors separate can create a sense of colors vibrating against each other for a shimmering effect.
