Snowy Solitude

I like winter scenes. Basically this one is not too bad, but I had a bit problems in blending the sky.



It certainly does not look like you had the problems with the sky. It makes sky rough and cold and stormy. This is very nice painting! I like the feel of the winter it gives!

Your acrylics look so good! I love how 'dry' the whole painting looks.

Thanks Sunnylady and Felix. Originally I started to paint in watercolors but as a self-taught "painter" I found it very difficult. Then I discovered acrylics and (for me) the paintings did look much better.

Tom, I think many of us here are self- taught and I mean no art school nor university nor college. You are doing great paintings! When you decide to switch to oil it will be another eye opening!
I started to understand acrylics more after I did few oil paintings. However I did not have much acrylic practice after I got oil paints.
Keep growing and learning more!

Stunning, congrats Tom! Love how many plans you painted with the palette of colors.

Thanks Sunnylady and Romain. @Sunnylady: I have no concrete plan to move to oil yet, but I think about taking a few lessons on it.

Oh wow I love this I also paint in acrylic so I know it’s possible. This is going to be great

Thank you paintcrazy19. Actually I painted around 120 episodes with acrylics, but later on moved to oils.

Wow that’s amazing I have only done about 100 paintings

It is often a challenge to paint Bob Ross episodes with acrylics. Recently I started to paint after acrylics tutorials. It is a different experience now for me as I learn to handle this medium. But my most favorite medium is watercolors.
