Around the Bend

Decided to experiment a bit and did not watch video and just used final 1 minute of video to see final result and go with it.
Gouache on paper. 20 by 28 cm.

An excellent idea! Look at that emerald river, just a gorgeous color!
The right tree oversees it all and demands its rightful attention!

I'd say you absolutely nailed it!

Thank you Doggymommee, you are very kind!
I like that this painting colors are quite tied together. I think adding green to the blue in the sky and in the water made a nice trick.

Absolutely. I think sometimes it looks "too blue" otherwise.

I need to say that I did not think it is possible to re create Bob Ross paintings with any other medium than oil and acrylics - acrylics only with restrictions. But you really surprised me with your creations which I checked now in a calm moment. I do this comment here but it is representative for all your other Gouache creations.

Thank You very much Tom! I found gouache quite interesting. I liked the texture of freshly produced paint as it is creamier than restored after dried state. It was s challenge at first. One important note though - paper need to be of a good quality like for the watercolors.
Thank you for your kind words and support Tom!

Definitely, the paper is the most important for watercolors, I assumed the same for Gouache. Hope to see some new paintings from you.

I will be on self isolation for 2 weeks soon, so surely, painting will be the only fun left for me over the holidays. I hope to continue and paint something from every season with gouache.
