Glacier Lake

Voy Kay 15 Jan 2020

Not the easiest it seemed up front and I was right about it. It was not really my thing so I guess that is why my heart was not at it. Canvas used was a 12"x16", easiest was the water and the cobbles, less easy were the glacier rocks and the waterfall. My evergreens remain looking like kindergarten stuff. This was my 30th oil painting 'Bob Ross style' on canvas, my 30th oil painting ever and only my 31st on a canvas (I did one acrylic once, ages ago!).


I was looking at this one fro quite some time. But that glacier is so intimidating. The snow seem to be most difficult there to make.

Check Painting with Yovette channel on the youtube. There is video about how to paint evergreens in case you want to check. It is quite short she paints 2 evergreens there for 10-15 min and explains things. Start at about 2:00 minutes. As far as I know she is certified Bob Ross instructor.

May be I'll try it this weekend if I get tired of my still life project.

By the way regarding your article with gesso tree in it. I think it is wonderful tree there and foliage! Looking forward to see it finished!

Congratulations with your 30th painting!

Dear Sunnylady, always bringing the sun to my comment boxes! :) I will check that video out, thank you for mentioning this to me. Concerning the next African (with the complex bushes), I will start in about one hour with it and will post it still today, hoping you will enjoy it. The glacier is not the easiest one to do, my family totally disliked it because of that way too huge mountain. The snow appliance is indeed tricky, lots of dirt coming along. I can only suggest using A LOT OF white and clean off brushes regularly.
