Splendor of Autumn

Tom0779 02 Feb 2023

Autumn scenes are always very popular. If you use some nice colors and put in some birch trees they find even more friends.
My opinion on this episode:
This is a nice scene created by Bob, even it contains a lot of liner brush work (this is not my favorite brush work, LOL) I really enjoyed doing this one.
Rather a straight forward painting with no special challenges. Maybe the layering of the background bushes can be a bit tricky. Bob uses a mixture of phtalo blue and alizarin crimson. Too much blue means it gets too dark very soon. And then layering to create dept gets difficult.
I try to keep my Bob Ross recreations pretty close to Bobs.
This is oils on canvas panel 16 x 20 in (40 x 50 cm)



Was soll ich sagen Tom. Tip top 😎fantastic !!!!

Danke Dirk! Many thanks :)

Beautiful and love the liner work!

Very nice Tom, I like the different trees in the foreground and the way the light captures the bark. I agree Autumn can give you a pallet of warmth that's for sure. Nice job 👍

Thanks a lot Sandy, I am glad you like the liner brush work.

Many thanks Nivek. From my experience, the best selling paintings are either mountains + evergreens or autumn scenes. I have the most request for them ;)

This one is high up on my to-paint-list! Wonderful job you did here, especially with the big tree on the left. I'm puzzled how some people manage to get those highlights on the trunk so crisp and smooth.

Very nice Tom. I really liked this one out of the world of Bob. Especially the large trees up front.

Thanks a lot Marc. Regarding the highlights to be honest I can't remember, this painting is already from last Autumn. But normally they are done with the knife. I sometimes do an additional highlight using the fan brush (holding it vertically) and very little color. I might have done this here too, but not sure.

Thanks a lot Matt. Indeed quite different to other episodes but really nice to do.

My opinion… your version looks better than Bob’s. I love your uneven grass. It makes it so real this way!

Thanks Tom! Will keep that in mind

Wow thank you Nancy. If you say you like it more than bob’s version I feel honored.
I always try to paint realistic, not photo realistic, but it should look natural.
I hope this makes sense.

You are welcome Marc. When I use the fan brush then only with very few pressure and color.
I have developed some odd techniques over time. 😀

one of my fave Bob paintings, you did it justice!

Many thanks Jessie!

Ery good

Thank you Coldethel.
