    Bob Ross Painting: Hidden Delight

    Hi all,
    I'm new to Artrage, digital painting, and artistic endeavors in general. Anyway, this is my first painting. I was attempting to follow along with Bob Ross on one of his PBS programs that recently aired.

    You are off to a great start, an enjoyable painting to look at too
    If I were marooned on a desert island, please air drop me a copy of Artrage 5.0! (Plus a laptop and solar panel)

    I can feel myself brushing through the thicket. Very golden. Good time to get home and fix some supper. Nice one. And welcome. . . er home.

    Iceaxe, D Akey, & Silvy,
    Thanks for the welcome. I had a lot of fun with this. I was very happy I was able to achieve some depth with some of the trees appearing to be off in the distance. I also liked the tree trunks on the big trees in the foreground and the streaks in the wood on the cabin. Also the highlight around the door.

    Of course, Bob Ross uses a fan brush a lot to make trees and bushes and for this painting he used his palette knife to drag paint around on the roof. I couldnít quite duplicate the appearance of those techniques but I learned a lot about manipulating the brushes & stickers in Artrage. I even made my own stencil from a photo I took at a local cemetery.
    Itís the two big evergreens just right of the cabin.

    Well, Iíve got another Bob Ross queued up on the DVR that I havenít watched plus a Jerry Yarnell painting of a wolf on a cliff that I want to try and reproduce digitally using Artrage. I figure if I do a couple dozen of those Iíll get to know Artrage like the back of my hand.
