Autumn Palette

flippergirlpaints 16 Jan 2024

Inspired by TIB user @Ninoum and her Gorgeous version. Done on 11x14 canvas. My 2 goals were to dominate with a yellow color scheme, and to avoid as much green as possible. Success! I should have made goal #3 - do not run out of room at the bottom lol ๐Ÿ™„ No fences for me! I really love doing underpainting. It adds so much character without effort. I think this was one of the fastest paintings I have done (which means about an hour still).

Thank you Everyone!

I really like it. What do you mean with under painting?

Thank you Ted! The underpainting I am referring to here is where Bob uses black gesso to create a "pattern" on the canvas and to serve as a dark (black) base. Some shows through on the finished painting. It makes much easier for no mud mixing as well.

There are many of Bob's compositions that use this technique - some easy and some more difficult. You can find them by searching the Bob Ross paintings search bar on here - use "by content" and select "under painting"

Great job!

Ya that tree is one of the best I have seen . What a great job with that. Look so real.
