LJMpaintings 11 May 2020

This one of my 15yr old daughter's (OM) first attempts at a Bob Ross painting. See below for her comments.......................................... This one is my favourite so far because it is one of my very first paintings.
-Mountains were very difficult because it was my very first attempt at them.
-That one evergreen on the left took me FOREVER to do, but I was finally satisfied with it when I finished.😄
Overall, I enjoyed myself doing this painting.


This looks like a tiny size. I think this is biggest challenge to paint bob ross method on small canvas. I cannot imagine what brushes are needed and how much patience is needed.
I think you did well here! Try to go bigger size after that dont be afraid. You will feel more freedom with bigger size. Check ANJA channel on youtube. She painted biggest Bob Ross style painting I have seen.

Hi Sunnylady, this is OM.
Yes this is on a small surface, and I've done a couple medium sized paintings.
I have seen ANJA's painting on her wall before! I remember it was huge! I'm not sure I'd ever feel comfortable doing something that big.
Another interesting adaptation of a Bob Ross painting I've seen on youtube was done by Rosanna Pancino(? Not sure if the spelling is correct) She did an interesting experiment with painting with frosting!
