Early Autumn

Voy Kay 14 Dec 2021

This painting has some story to tell. It was almost six months ago since I started a Ross painting with a smile! I stopped halfway to have some coffee, a big slice of Mandarin cake (baked at home) and watch an entire Christmas movie. Afterwards I continued, finished the job but must admit I wasn't too pleased with the end results.
Canvas used was a budget 12"x16". The colours did not came out as I wanted them to, the mountain (again) became a boring creature and for some reason I never got the highlights correctly on the evergreens.

Guess I should have uploaded that slice of cake!!

You are getting back up to speed Voy! The mountain shape is great and complex, not just triangles.

Indeed Sunnylady, Bob created a different kind of mountain here and I followed him.

Not sure if Bob can bake Mandarin cake as well as us though! 😂

That cake and coffee sounds wonderful!
Your pines have nice form and the distant mountains look quite distant.
May you start your next painting, and every painting with a smile. Have a Merry Christmas! 🎄
