The choice of painting was motivated by the fact that I happened to have a blue framed canvas in stock since about 20 years. Bob Ross had this painting on a blue background so I decided to use mine. This is only the fourth painting that I've completed on a canvas board and only the third by using oil paint.
Hardest was to get the colours right of the trees and bushes. Whatever I tried, the colour hardly differed from each other but I defenitely wanted to avoid too bright colours. The foreground holds a small still water instead of grass because I believed there was already too much grass on the painting and I happen to like some water in my creations.
The painting took me 3,5 hours from start to finish, including at least one hour of it cleaning brushes!
What I most like about this picture is that it changed daily after it was created, meaning that the colours accentuated more and better while drying.
