Blue Winter

Voy Kay 17 Dec 2019

Limited use of colours so less cleaning to do. My fourth oil on canvas painting was thus ready in about 90 minutes.
Unfortunately, I screwed up with applying the liquid white so the right side of the picture holds an unintended dark spot which I was unable to cover up completely with the tree.
For the rest, it went okay I think. Hoping to finally read some interesting comments on my work!


Very realistic result! I like the left half of your picture best: excellent fluffy clouds, mountains with character and trees that are just slightly covered with snow. Not sure what could be done about the dark spot on the right side... what I would have tried: scraping off as much paint with the pallet knife, then restarting. Also, I would try to put a bit more movement in the water at the front, but again, not sure how to do this...

Excellent advice and useful since I am very new at this. Of the four I painted so far, I think it is my best yet but I definitely had a bad afternoon, struggling with too many things to be good. Thank you Mahy!!

I find the "Q&A" episodes to be quite useful ( to find answers for these situations, see for example this video (at 22:48) where Bob explains how you can do a "bush-ectomy" (

Thank you so much Mahy, I watched the episode and it is full of bright and useful advice. It will definitely help me with my future artistic endeavours. Great!
