A Walk in the Woods

Chris Monk 13 Jul 2019

I've been painting happy little trees!!
This is my first painting ever and I decided to base it on Bob's first PBS show. I tried my best to match Bob but I started out being short on some of the recommended colors and then I just got tired (after 8 or 9 hours) and simplified the painting shapes a little bit. I'm calling mine "Lakeside Sunrise". I used oil painting paper and a cheap easel that both worked much better than I expected but other than that the paints and brushes were all official Bob Ross from his Master set.
The entire experience was so inspiring and now I am just staring at it, thinking about what I would change next time and not worrying about it, cause this was just the first time and I think it looks pretty darn good considering that.
Thanks for all your criticisms, advise and support!

Your sky! Wow I love it! I also love your updated look of the painting; you really put a lot of detail in it, you hard work shows!

Thank you, OneDirection!
