Secluded Forest

Lyndsay 07 Jan 2021

This was my first 'Bob' and it well and truly got me hooked. OK, I wimped out on putting the foreground trees in but now that I have had a bit of practice with this techniques I am going to go back and put them in. Question: do I just paint straight onto dry paint surface or is there a better way to do it?



Wow, it looks great. I especially like the grass and puddles.

Beautiful Lindsay, yes putting those big ole foreground trees in can be scary but you should go for it, maybe put a little linseed oil on your brush if the canvas has dried

Fantastic first Bob! wonderful all round, great water and reflections, beautiful tree bark too, really nice depth.
Glad you're hooked, welcome to the club!
