My swamp challenge is done! ✅ 5 out of 5 of the swamp scenes are completed. This one is done on a big 22”x28”.

I added some titanium white to brighten up the bright spot. In the book, it really look like Bob added some. He didn’t in the video. So I took the liberty to make it more misty/foggy.

Great to paint! Love the colors and the swamp scene. Lots of fun gesso prep (see attached picture).

Very nice!

great job, this is my fave of the swampy scenes!

Just, WOW. Normally we think of swamps as being green. I would never have thought to use these colors but they work great! I love the Spanish moss. We don't have any of that up here in the north. Just need to add a few alligators!

Good Morning Nancy ,Just wow!!. ☕️😎

Thx Cold! 😃

Thank you Jessie it’s mine too!

Thank you Brian! I agree, Bob chose awesome colors for this one! Spanish moss is everywhere down here. I never saw it until I moved to FL 22 yrs ago. I am from Canada… def no Spanish mods there! 😅

Hello my friend! 🇩🇪 Thank you so much! 😊

This is awesome Nancy! Big Fan of the layering. Like a painting on a painting!

Thank you so much Marc! It creates so much more depth. Gesso work like this one always gives an amazing outcome!

Just gorgeous! Love the colors and the spanish moss is excellent! Another masterpiece!

This is beautiful Nancy. That foreground really pops and gives the painting great depth.

I have to admit, I was looking for a bit of Spanish moss hanging off your signature :)
