Night Light

ksulli10 10 Jan 2020

This is my 3rd Bob Ross painting. It is probably my favorite so far. I was very pleased with how the waves and the lighthouse turned out. However, my underlying color did not come out the same way as Bob's (in the top right cloud area)... mine is very bright and not quite blue/silver like it was supposed to be. Does anybody have any idea how to remove paint when you use too much? I want to remove some of the white around my moon to give it more contrast.

I use some tissue if it's a lot, or a clean brush if only a little, and then repaint (with less paint of course). Nice one!

Voy's tissue system works, also if you ever really overdo the paint sometimes just scraping off with the knife and starting fresh is an option. But don't overlook the clean brush and blending out you can practically erase things sometimes.

I love the way your light around the lighthouse looks. It definitely blends out better than mine did. Also you're correct the smaller shorter waves do look better I think.

The light behind the light house is really super, well done.

Your lighthouse is fantastic!
