An Arctic Winter Day

Happylittlefish 25 Dec 2019

This is my first ever oil painting, so be gentle! After years of wanting to try the Bob Ross style method, my siblings bought the master set for my birthday, and so I have no more excuses not to try!
I obviously still have SO MUCH practice to do, the snow on the mountains was not as intuitive as Bob makes it look, and the trees nearly killed me, but overall, it was fun, I learned a lot, the picture is decent, and everyday's a good day when you paint!
(The fires on the mountain tops represent a scene from the Lord of the Rings story)


Congratulations! That's a wonderful present you got! Enjoy your time while painting! I am always happy when I overcome challenge, that looked so easy on TV show. I enjoy there is learning curve. I wish you to continue and as you said ( and I totally agree) practice and practice. It will give you most amazing time doing something for your heart and soul.

Love the Beacons of Gondor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was my first attempt at Bob Ross too! You have so many beautiful shades of blue and your trees are great. Your sky is very atmospheric. Lovely!
