On budget canvasboard 24x30 cm. Skipped the banks tried to make colorful bushes, Difficult is to paint trees over each other in a dark area. Bought a new smal oval brush, I have to learn to work with it

Ressembles a lot 'Distant mountains' from Bob.
Trees worked out well, as are the mountains, but I mostly like your reflection!

Very nice Joha

Thanks Pietro, Voy and Matt!

Joha you did a fantastic landscape. If you don’t mind I will give you advice. Everything is perfect in this painting, however distant trees in the slopes are way too yellow green. At that distance they need to be more blue due to the mass of the air between viewer and the slope. If you could reproduce the dark mixture you had for the base and add to the mix that green and blue and White, it would create a nice color for those trees on the mountain slopes.

Those mountains are great! Did you paint them using thebknife or something else?

Thank you Sunnylady, you may always give advice. The trees on the slopes are the same color as Bob uses, maybe it's better to make them darker and more blue ...
Umagaan: thank you. I use a small straight palletknife for it and slowly tries to use the small Bob Ross palletknife. I mostly use a smaller canvas, so a smaller palletknife works better for me.
