10th oil painting. I plan to go through the whole season 15 in the next few months. I already uploaded S15E1 a few days ago (I also uploaded at least two others in acrylics). This is one I really enjoyed because the scene could be just around the corner where I am living. I am now quite happy with the foliage in oils and with the liner brush work. These kind of clouds are quite new for me and I painted them the first time. I am not totally happy how they came out. More practice is needed here.



Yay! Congrats with mini anniversary of ten's painting!

Great water and tree shapes! Clouds are good too(maybe just overblended at the tops a bit and that what makes them fluffy, but it is not bad at all) !

Thanks sunnylady. You are definitely right regarding the clouds. I think they are ok but next time I try to not touch the top.
I am definitely happy with the trees even I think the photo doesn’t show them how they really are. Water is so easy with oils. I really worked myself to death to make it look right in acrylics. Here it is just a matter of seconds and it looks better.
Forgot to mention that This is a as 40 x 50 cm canvas. I think this size should be the minimum for Bob Ross tools.

I totally agree with you 40x50 is the smallest possible for BR tools.

I am so happy to hear that you did this very nice water just in couple of seconds! It is awesome!

Also that's super great that you went for that challenge of painting the entire season!

Thanks a lot sunnylady. Maybe it now pays that I painted Bob pictures with acrylics. It was always tough to paint skies and water and this got now very easy. Of course there are other challenges, like putting more layers of color on. But it works not too bad.
I already have painted one full season. It was season 31. but I only shared 12 of the 13. the 13th is not good enough to share it. But I will re paint it 😀
