Winter Solitude

dracula 23 Feb 2020

I've been wanting to paint this one for a while since it is so different, but the way I imagined myself painting it is a bit different, probably not even wet on wet. In the end I just used the normal Bob Ross techniques. I may try again in a different way in the future.

Scriptlining for advanced! You kept the mood very serene, just enough details, paint and contours to create that gorgeous background. I love it! 😊

This for me is spring time starting and winter giving it's way to the spring. Wonderful painting and trees are so nice and gentle! It is very different, indeed. I like the subtle sky as this what gives warm feel to the painting.

Your trees look so real! I really like your painting which is almost a photo

The mood is elegant and the painting is so beautifully done!!

Thank you all, I am glad you enjoy the painting. I was afraid the quiet sky might not show up in the photograph, but it's pretty close to how I saw it on the easel. Personally, I prefer the tree textures of @Jin7's rendition of this painting, but I was glad to get so much script liner practice!

If I were to do a second color pass on this painting, I would put more directional lighting in the snow with corresponding soft cast shadows from the foreground trees. I haven't gone back in on any of my Bob Ross paintings after the first (and only) session as I do with other landscape studies. Maybe that's something I should consider in the future.
