I scored a lucky find at a garage sale and ended up getting a whole lot of Grumbacher oil paint colors for less than 20 bucks. I also picked up a whole assortment of oil paint brushes. This was one of my first attempts at a Bob Ross Style painting. I followed his classic method and style of painting and still use his techniques today.

The painting started off with a simple sky and large clouds. I used a mix of a few different shades of blue and white for the very top of the sky and lightened the color as I moved down. Clouds were then added into the scene.

After which I started to map out whwere I wanted to have the mountains placed. I decided right smack in the middle of the canvas would be a great place form them. After I got the dark background color down I used the classic roll of paint and started to map out the mountains.

After a few tries and experimenting, I got something that I liked and just left it at that. I then added in some distant grass and trees. The water is real simple. Just use the same color as the sky and brush it down. Add in a lighter color closer to the middle of the canvas. In this case I added a bit more of a green to pull the treeline reflections down into the water.

A really neat way to make nice water is to take a large brush and just dip it in some white. Then take that brush and quickly stroke it across the water to make a couple of streaks. this helps to show some movement and reflections happening in the water and adds a nice effect.

I quickly added in the foreground with some dabs of dark green for grass and pretty much called it a finished painting.

thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed!
