Golden Knoll

Golden Knoll

Personally, I prefer not to have evidence of people as a focal point in my landscapes so I've been avoiding painting a cabin for over a year! However, I think part of the value in painting Bob Ross landscapes, for me, is in painting things I may not have thought to do myself. So, I painted a cabin. I was a little underwhelmed with the monochromatic nature of the background as I was going through the background (the version in the book is more subdued than the one from the television program), but in the end I it was a fun and rewarding, and a little bit different.

Dracula, congratulations with the cabin then! I think it adds feel of calmness to this magnificent view. I mean presence of humans in this landscape. Imagine someone walks to the end of the path and stands on this hill and sees this incredible beauty of wide space in front. I would certainly bring a chair with me and took a proper time to enjoy sunset there. Beautiful work!

Very nice coloring. Your liner brush work is always amazing, especially with oils. I like it.

I really like the subtle path and the gentle highlights on the grass. Great cabin too!
