Original Creation

Around the bend - Bill Alexander

Tom0779 19 Sep 2023

Last weekend I was very productive, this is the painting from Sunday. It is a little anniversary, my 150th oil painting since I started using oils in April 2020.
A super episode (available on the Alexander Art YouTube channel) to train intuitive painting in the sky. Bill starts actually without a concrete plan to paint the sky, just applying colors. Not very much blended the sky looks really nice and I am totally happy with the result.
Else it is a very nice and easy scene to create, with some mountain range and some big trees.
Oils on canvas panel 20 x 28 in (50 x 70 cm)



Gratulation, Tom 👍🏼🇩🇪🇦🇹ich hab’s auch gemalt vor etwas längerer Zeit , very nice

Danke Dirk, Grüße aus AT.

Great job Tom. I really like the touches of orange in the sky.

Really beautiful and congrats on 150!

Thank you Tomi, Cadmium Orange, that's the most beautiful orange I have yet had :)

Thank you Sandy, never thought I would paint that much with oils, wasn't my favorite medium at the beginning.

Fantastic sky and you achieved more depth with your mountains than Bill did Tom. Beautiful!

Nice and beautiful colors!

Thank you Brian, I just let the brush go wherever it wanted when painting the sky.

Thank you Jos, I liked your version a lot thus I painted this episode yet already.

It is beautiful. The colour value is really great here! I have thought about doing this one for a while now!

Thank you Jim!

🎉 Congrats Tom!!! So many wonderful colors on here! Great compo!

Thanks Nancy!
