Northern Lights

Gandalf_55 07 Nov 2020

This is my 13th oil landscape and the first one i did using a black canvas. I really enjoyed doing the mountains and the aurora borealis parts, they were really fun. I feel less confident with the foreground but it’s okay. Haven’t done a landscape in a couple months so I think I’m a little rusty. At this point with bob ross, I’ve stopped painting along with bob and pausing every so often. Now I watch the episode once and then just work in his techniques from memory after, i think it’s helping me to become a better artist.



Great mountain, northern lights are awesome! The foreground trees and cabin are great. Proportions are correct and it makes this very cozy corner somewhere in mountains.

It's a good technique! Myself, I got better, and faster, from watching it up front
