Deep Wilderness Home - s22e8

**UPDATE ** I added a better photo.

I have graduated to my next step in conquering the fear of deep woods paintings. I have loved this Bob Ross painting since the day I started painting , but never felt like I had the skill/nerve to attempt it. My therapist (my 21 year old cat Oscar) said he felt I was ready to at least attempt the challenge. Well after some consideration of Oscar's advice, I decided to give it a try. I was not expecting much.

I have to say, after completing this painting, I am feeling WAY more confident about deep woods paintings. For full disclosure, I did attempt to add shingles to the roof, but they looked horrible and ruined the painting. I put a drop or 2 of thinner on a paintbrush and just scrubbed the shingles figuring that would be my base coat for me to try to paint the shingles again. I was surprised that the scrubbed roof ended up looking like a nicely weathering metal roof, so with Oscar's approval, I decided that metal roof it was :) The only parts of he painting I may tweak after drying are the bushes to the right of the house (lost a bit of dark separation there) and to add a few lines to the falling water in the waterfall.

As usual photo does not do the painting justice. 18" x 24" canvas. As always, your comments (especially suggestions) are desired and welcome.

Hey Tony, its a great cabin and very powerful colors. Good job πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ

So beautiful! Love the cabin and the colors are fantastic!

Thank You Dirk & Sandy :)

Oscar has good taste. I think this is just awesome. I love the colors. Your waterfall is really beautiful and that purple tree is icing on the cake. Great job on the reflections in the water too.

Thanks Bob!

Very Nice and colorful!

You have certainly done Bob's painting justice Tony, well painted, cheers

Thank you Brian and Dave :)

Wonderful Tony. Oscar is a great therapist.

Thank you Tomi. I am not kidding when I say this, as I was painting the background, I needed a soft touch. Problem is I am kind of a cave man. So to remind myself to be soft, I kept saying "paint it soft like Tomi would" as I painted the background. IT WORKED :)

Awwww. That is the best compliment anyone could give me. Never under estimate a sable Filbert and goat hair blender. You really did do a great job.

Beautiful compo! I really like your colors Tony! Well done my friend!

Very nicely done :). One of my favs of Bob’s. Your cabin looks great!
