Meadow Brook Surprise

mikala979 18 Feb 2021

My husband and I had some trouble with this one! I like the sky and the misty areas in the back, but then all the tapping for the meadow just didn’t seem to yield any depth. I’m ok with the brook since it’s my first attempt, and I like the two big trees (minus a few whacky branches, still figuring those out!). I really don’t like the three evergreens - the colour is wrong and I messed up blending the bottom trunks into the grass, so I really had to work to make that look a bit better! I also tried to fix the top, and messed that up so I had to grow that tree out. All in all, it isn’t the best, but it’s not terrible! This is my 9th Bob Ross and ever oil painting.



The blending in the sky is beautiful. I also have problems creating depth in the grassy areas. Maybe you have to really switch back and fort between the greens and yellows? And try to create little hills and valleys so that not everything is flat? Well, just keep painting :)
