Walk in the woods.

 So I decided that the best way to get the really cool lighting effects was to learn from the Master him self Bob Ross. I want to make it abundantly clear that this painting is not in anyway an original piece. This was one of Bob Ross's creations from Bob Ross The Joy of Painting Vol. 21. I believe that he was one of the most important contributor's to today's era of art. Bob Ross taught in a manner that allows anyone to do this. I remember a year ago when we sat down and watched a PBS episode, and I was Sold on the idea when he said to the TV Screen, " Its so easy, you can do this, I really believe you can."

 So here is my homage to one of the worlds most influential people.


This is where the magic happens.

Titanium white
  Alizarin Crimson
Phthalo Blue
Dark Sienna
Van Dyke Brown
Cadmium Yellow
Yellow Ochre
Indian Yellow


Here I applied a little Yellow Ochre and blended outward into a mix of Phthalo blue and Alizarin Crimson.

A little background foliage.

Now some foreground details and highlights with a big freaking Tree!
