Winter Paradise

Hyunmyy 13 May 2020

This time I tried to do Winter Paradise with acrylics paint, I also used a bit of chalk pastels in the sky because it was looking a bit blank.
I'm not really satisfied with this one because of the way clouds look and the water part was a big struggle, and let's not talk about this weird oval shape I drew! But it was still fun and relaxing to make thanks to Bob Ross amazing tutorial~

Acrylics Pastels


For clouds with acrylics and to make them more fluffy on the top you can use dry brush technique. This is when you dip brush into the paint , you wipe it with the napkin to have almost no paint left and brush looks dry and then you scrub residual very thin layer into the dry base of the sky. you can do the same for the shadow color. Remember only that brush shall look like it has no paint on it. dry. hence the name.

You got very nice painting here! Clouds are cute little lambs floating in the sky. You just learn something new today and that is awesome! Don't get upset!

Same technique can be used to create reflections, brush stokes however will have vertical direction down only.

Thank you so much for your helpful advices and kindness Sunnylady! I will definitely try that technique next time!
