How to paint a landscape like the Impressionists is a step by step tutorial by Ginger Cook. using heavy body acrylics not oils as was traditional in the late 1800s. This a perfect beginner painting with acrylics.
The Impressionist painters like Monet, Renoir, and Matisse used very small overlapping brush strokes in their painting. They were the first artists to actually paint on location, using oil paints that did not dry for weeks. These small directional brush strokes that overlapped using warm and cool colors gave real vibrancy and lift to the paintings. In this spring landscape with an apple blossom trees Ginger Cook shows you step by step how to use acrylic paints to mimic this style of painting.

We’re doing a ’98 Dodge Ram project. I’m helping my godfather out which he got as a quick flip. We’re not going to do some crazy show job on it but he wanted to take out some of the large dents on this truck, paint the front and the bed.
It looks like it got hit in the front so we’ll pull this grill off, take the dent out and bondo it out flat.
The dents and scratches on the side are easy. It will only take me twenty minutes to take it out, put some bondo, grind and weld and put some pins to pop it out. We’ll paint it green from the lower bottom up, base and clear the side of the bed.
Before doing any real body work, grind down all the damage areas, this way you can do all your spot welding, pull out the dents, do your filler and all of that.
Maintain clean the area that has to be body worked with a grinder.
Sand with 80-grit around all your body work areas before laying any kind of putty, so you can feather in your body work and bondo. Do you see how we have it scuffed all around the areas? That’s very important, this way we can blend it in.
Then, we’ll do a little bit of rasping to save some sanding time.
Now, we’re laying our second coat of body filler. Large dents usually take two to four coats, depending on how much body work there is. Small areas usually need one to two coats. Then we’ll rasp it down again.
We’ll use the straight sander, put some guide coat and hand block doing a crisscross pattern. You can use a 40-grit, 60-grit or an 80-grit, which I’m using.
My godfather is sanding the whole hood down with a 320-grit. Then, I’m using a straight sander on the quarter panel for a nice, flat edge.
We’ll spray a little bit more guide coat so we can use our block and finish it off nice and flat. Then, after this it’s done.
We’ll go ahead and put some polyester putty and fill all of this in nicely. We laid about three heavy coats of polyester putty. Then, what you have to do after, is check for imperfections.
If you there are chips that you missed, you can fill it in with regular putty. I used a polyester glazed putty in a tube.
Then, cut everything down with 400-grit wet sand. You can cheat and use a DA sander quick then wash it off with a 400-grit wet sand. Then, you’re ready for paint.
Let’s mix our paint up and tack it down. The tack rag is the final step.
Then, we can start our base coat. We’ll lay two to three coats of base and two heavy coats of clear.
When doing touch up repair jobs like this, you will always want to cover the primer area first.
If you just covered the whole panel, the primer areas will still be a little bit grey. Make sure you get it to the same color first and then paint the whole panel.
We just wanted to make the main front grill fixed up.We’ll fill up the gun one more time then lay our second coat of clear. We have 50 percent overlay. We’re spraying at about 29 to 30 psi.
I purposely left this section of the video long because a lot of people want to see the painting process. How I actually spray. We are spraying at about four to six inches away from the panel and making sure it’s nice, wet and glossy.
One thing where a lot of newbies make a mistake is they don’t put enough clear on it. That’s why it comes out dry and orange peely. Orange peel is not enough clear, drying too quickly, improper mixture, spraying incorrectly, spraying at a too low psi.
Now, we’ll do some plasti-dip on the front grill. We’re peeling off the excess plasti dip off the emblem. It’s pretty much done. We’re buffing out the rest of the panels so it brings out the resilience of the old paint to match the new paint. We didn’t really do a blend job, we just did a touch-up.
Talk to you soon! Bye!
