Don't you mean crazy 'good?' That's a beautiful sky. Great blending.

Really nice painting. I like the steep angle of that near landmass.

Thanks so much Alex. FYI I do have an actual blender brush that I have used often. It really makes very soft effects.

Love this! The sky is awesome and the colours in the clouds are lovely, beautiful trees too, a really really good painting 😁

Wow so amazing. This is the painting I want to do next for number 36. Any advice. ?

I am glad you like this one Charles. I noticed that I did it a while back. So I checked and it was actually v. Number 37 painting for me! What a coincidence. I do not like the way my mountains look too pointy and unnatural. So my advice with those is to not do them like I did LOL. I remember using too much liquid medium in the sky. And that is what gave me so much trouble with my clouds. The final result was not on purpose, ha ha. I do have a very soft blender brush which definitely saved me from being a mud mixer in the sky. If you want to do skies with a lot going on like that, you have to blend very lightly. Lastly I would say that whenever I paint a Bob Ross painting. I do go through all of the versions that 2 inch brush members have painted For additional inspiration. Have fun with this one I look forward to seeing your version!

Thank you Pam. Great advice. I think it will be a fun one.
