27th painting Bob Ross style and the 15th consecutive day I painted at least one a day. Maybe I am too excited or should I name it ... hooked? Fact is that after several mishaps, I wanted to set something straight and, as my friend MHK told me yesterday, have fun while doing it regardless the result. My choice of today was a seaview which was destined to be a centerpiece in my living room (my family requested that two weeks ago!). I took a larger canvas then usual, a 20"x20" square museum thickness, so did not go for Bob's oval since it had to match a reserved space on the wall. That made dimensions and locations a bit tricky but I think I managed well to conquer that. Waves are never easy so this one was also a challenge. Yet I was totally at ease, taking my time, redoing things (just twice) when necessary and taking well thought of decisions. Amongst those are the separate rocks on the beach which I left out and I made the giant rock on the left bigger. Bob's water did not foam very much so I put some extra juice there (tapping Titanium white with a wave brush). Easiest was the background sky blending, much tougher were the clouds and of course the waves. Maybe the tree should have been a little bigger?
I can recommend this to everyone since it is a great painting to do and for me, most importantly, I had great fun and satisfaction doing it. Thanks MHK, Dracula, Sunnylady, Patoex and so many more wonderful people that inspire and motivate me!!
