Purple Splendor

This was my very first Bob Ross painting (and first ever oil painting). It took me four hours and was much harder than I anticipated, however I'm still pleased with my end result. I struggled a bit with the trees, and the rocks were definitely my Bravery Test! I felt happiest about my grass of all things! Now to keep practicing!



Very nice first painting Brittany!

Beautiful for a first painting! Really good job!

That is a great first! Keep it up!

Great stuff Brittany, I know what you mean with trees. 👍

Welcome to oil painting journey! Don’t pressure yourself about timing and let it be as long as you feel comfortable. Some of the paintings from Bob took even 6 hours at beginners stage for me. Just remember nobody rushes you to finish in one sitting, take all the time you need to enjoy the process.

Thank you, everyone! Your kind words mean a lot to me and encourage me to keep painting and learning!

You have talent Brittany! It’s beautiful. Keep going at it… you will be a rockstar artist in no time!
