Final Reflections

Final Reflections

Third Bob Ross painting (third ever, to be honest). Struggled getting good color in the sky; not sure what Bob did for that and how he made it so light. Added a cloud because it looked bare, but struggle with it and wish I hadn’t. Hard to do a river reflection as an afterthought as he does in the show. A work in progress :)

If you use a smaller canvas than bob (his are really big in my opinion) you should really be careful that you only load a little bit of color in the brush. You can always add more. But I think your sky looks beautiful. With clouds I think you have to be careful not to use too much paint and then you blend very carefully. I still haven't mastered them. And nothing is as easy as bob makes it look, but it's still amazing what he can teach you to do. Good job and keep on painting!
