Voy Kay 11 Jan 2022

Another recycled canvas where I chose a painting that had little interest to me. Not because of the colouring, which I like very much, but more like the way trees and bushes are build up. No worries, just my own opinion!

Canvas used was a recycled HQ 10"x12". Easiest parts here were the background, the bushes and the water. A tough part was the right dead tree, it takes a steady hand which I have not, dominant side.

Please enjoy!

Great water! I think the texture added from the underpainting gives it looks really good.

It's indeed a fact Brian that I poorly sanded the canvas for recycling, but thus added some texture to the creature ... ahum, pardon me, ...creation!
Also the family here thinks the water is the best. I can agree as well!

Till next one!

Nice job to brighten up an otherwise dull Bob ross painting.

Love the colors. Phthalo blue and phthalo green?

@HLarson3. Yes, recently I use a new technique for the grasses and since then, most of them work out. I used to be afraid of bushes but since I use my own technique (derived and almost equal to Bob's), they almost always shine!

Matt, it is true, his earlier seasons lack bright colouring. I adore diversity in bushes not only in shape but also in colors. Thanks for comenting!

Close Umagaan, he uses Sap green iso Phtalo green, but mixed with some P. blue, that gives and emerald hue.

As a base, Bob uses a paintmix of Sap green and Phtalo blue. The amount is not mentioned but my experience is that it works best (colourwise) with 2/3 of Sap green and 1/3 of Phtalo blue.
