Meadow Brook Surprise

PhthaloLisa 10 Feb 2022

Wow, it is tricky to bring the stream from middle ground to the foreground! Any advice would be appreciated, as this has been a challenge in all 3 of the Bob Ross paintings I have attempted.

Your background and close trees are so stunning! The only thing I can think of for the stream is that it should get wider as it gets closer. But I think this is still a stellar job!! Congrats!

Try to make your path/stream not straight (more winding) and it should get larger toward the foreground. See if that helps you. Nice job on these background trees - great mist!

I think you did a very fine job here! I agree make the stream wider in the foreground. Only other thing maybe try to have a few more shadows (or highlights if you want it brighter) in your grass. It'll help show the lay of the land better.

Love the colours in those distant trees, a beautiful painting, I'd agree with the others, all that's needed is to make the stream meander slightly and get wider as it gets nearer. Really top job though 👍
