After much deliberation I decided to make this one my next class painting. We'll be slowly getting out of winter next month so I wanted to do a non winter scene. I also thought this one is quite different from the normal Bob paintings and the class would find it interesting on how to create these effects.
Haha thanks Jeff. It actually looked very pretty in just black and white. I might have to do it again and just leave it at that stage.
Great scene to teach. You did a fantastic job with it, especially the liner brush work is amazing.
And yes, only the black and white underpainting is already superb.
Love it and so will your class!
Thanks Brian. I think they will enjoy it too
Lovely version Matt. Love the crookedness of that tree! Have to say this one never has been one of my favourites, maybe because it's so different, but man you have that sunrays going!
Thanks Marc. This isn't my favorite either but a very neat way to create such cool effects.
That's certainly true!
Do I observe correctly, that you have done some additional soft hightlighting work to the left side of the trunk and the left branch? Or is that indeed incidental with the application of the light color for the background and the sunrays?
I think that was a happy accident lol. I did a very small amount of shading on the white/gray trees
Lol, that's awesome
Count me in your next class! 🙋🏻♀️ I really wish I'd live closer. This is such a beautiful version. I like it better than Bob's. Those rays of sunlight look so real! Nice vibrant colors Matt!
Amazing Matt! You must have spent forever painting all those branches !
Thanks Matt. And yea it did take a while to paint all those branches lol
Thank you Nancy! I'd like to meet ya next time I come to Florida. My parents have a home in Ft. Myers
Thanks much Cold
Fantastic! Let’s make it happen next time you come down here. Maybe we could plan to go to the Bob Ross art workshop & gallery in New Smyrna beach and meet Nic Hankins!
