Country Creek

After 3 paintings with oil I wanted to use acrylics again. This doesn’t mean that I don’t like the oil, but I still want to practice with the medium I started painting Bob Ross scenes. This one is on 30 x 40 cm paper. I started with the background a few days ago, I wasn’t really focused and I am afraid there are some weaknesses from that part, especially the evergreens in the middleground. When I continued today with the bushes in the center, I first painted them like Bob did, but I didn’t like them. So I went over with dark color and made them my way. I am not sure why the stream didn’t work as expected. Sorry for the low quality photo my mobile produces.



So peaceful! I really enjoy all the little stones. The water looks very realistic!

Great work Tom!

Shadowwork on the graas and that big rock really took my attention. Another beauty from you Tom!

Great lighting and depth. I especially love the texture of your foliage. Excellent work!

Thank you dracula. I create the foliage with filbert brushes. They are quite big in comparison with the size of the painting itself - its similar to Bobs oval brush. I don’t wet the brush and I use pure acrylic color without any water. I use a very gentle pressure and I load the brush frequently.

I see no weaknesses here. I think it's great!!
