A little winter landscape in gouache. This was going to be a study for a larger oil painting but I kinda like it as is 😊
This was done on 6x6 aquaboard, which I’m really loving for water-based paints! Not too expensive and absolutely no buckling or distorting.
My Bob Rossing has produced a finished painting! I’m happy with this one 😀 Some facts:
- Oil on canvas
- 18 x 24 in
- My 2nd finished oil painting ever
- Not actually based on a Bob Ross video
- Not the Bob Ross method (he does wet on wet, this is mostly wet on dry)
- Loosely based on a bad photo I took of a print in a doctor’s office
- The cloud shadows on the foreground trees were a happy accident
- Taking pics of shiny oil paintings is hard
2018. This year felt like a real leap forward for me artistically—I don't think I've produced this much artwork purely for enjoyment since I was in grade school, and it was really gratifying to watch my skills improve in real time. I've still got a ton to learn, but I'm more excited than ever to keep learning. Thanks for checking out my art, everyone! Here's to an awesomely creative 2019 :D
Trying to get out of my comfort zone by doing more portraits, and this was the first I’d done in gouache in a while. Turned out decent, although I still need a lot more work! I’m going to look around for good life drawing workshops. This was based on an online image that I haven’t been able to find attribution for.
A little digital sketch for an oil painting in progress. The sketch is actually partly a photo of the painting as I have it so far—I was impatient and tried to start without a preliminary sketch and it became clear very quickly that this was not going to go well 😛
