Happy Painting (w/painting)

As was mentioned in my last post, I love watching Bob Ross and even though I have oils and have even used them, its not something that I do indoors or in the closed up house of winter. This is his true medium, though he has done some acrylics.

I've always wanted to paint along with him so I decited to do a watercolor anyway and just do it wet on wet in order to keep up. Watercolors you often let dry between layers.

I had a little touching up to do after the show was over and it took a little doing because you normally do lights to darks in watercolors and darks to lights in oils. 

Anyway, if I haven't confused you too much... I did give it a go and this is how it turned out. Not my finest hour but it was fun:

I used the same colors and subject as he did. But I used a 5.5 x 8.5 pulp paper and he used a very large canvas. I noticed something too. He always does landscapes and has no wide life with the exception of a bird of in the distance. 

So, I kinda missed that in this one LOL.

Its a beautiful painting and looks very similiar to Bob Ross paintings. You're right though, he rarely painted anything but landscapes....mountains, trees and the occasional cabin in the woods as well as beautiful water reflections and rocks.  His son is also a fantastic painter.

Yes, I saw his son a few times. Very nice painter.

It's nice!  I love watching Bob too.  His still life art is so amazing.  Even thogh he add an occasional bird, his paintings were basically still life.  I always thought he'd surprise us one day, and add wild life, but he never did.

Me too. I loved it when he would show "Pea Pod" his little pet squirrel. So sweet!

It still looks nice Sis. Zoey-Mae. Bro. Doc

Thank you! A lot of work for such a small painting. Yet, when ever I do something new like this I learn a lot and that is a good thing.

It is a good thing to learn something new each and every day. Bro. Doc
