Mountain Reflections

parksd02 27 Oct 2021

I gave this one a bit more of an autumn flavor, since I am a sucker for this time of year. I got to incorporate a few different colors than what I normally use, as well. Give this one a try!

This painting is great. I went to your TIB profile page expecting to see a 'Bob Ross Certified Instructor' tag there. To me, this is that good. I especially like the shrubs and bushes. You did well in gaining some separation from one bush to another as well as subtle changes in color, so they don't look like one big blob of foliage (like mine usually do). Oops. Did I say that out loud?

And that mountain is awesome, particularly the parts where you blended it at the base. That really fades out gradually. Quite the misty illusion going on there. Aces.

Just gorgeous!

@Alex_Ander Thank you so much! When I was a kid trying to paint 30+ years ago, I could not paint bushes to save my life. It has been a study in finding the right consistency, touch, etc...and I still fail from time to time with them. But, that's what makes it all fun. I'd love to be a certified instructor, but with a wife and four kids to support, I don't think I can make the trip to Florida any time soon.

@paintingblondie Thank you for your comments!!

Very nice!
