Thread: mountains using Bob Rossí palette knife technique

    mountains using Bob Rossí palette knife technique

    Any advice on translating certain palette knife techniques into AR?

    Applying, spreading, smearing translate readily, but when Bobs applies highlights, he uses a physical reality which exists on real canvas but not in AR: high and low spots on the paint to “catch” paint from the lightly-dragged knife.

    Clearly I need a brush with a texture or thinner or loading I can vary; so far results are very, “meh.”

    Maybe I need to completely forget about the tools Bob Ross uses, and embrace other techniques for applying color in the way he does it..

    thank you for any tips on this!

    Using rough canvas texture and chalk will produce something like this. I used a plain canvas for the mountain layer and the layer above has the textured canvas.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.
