My first attempt oil painting ( actually painting at all )

This is my first ever oil painting, just watching a Bob Ross tutorial video on youtube.
Already now I'm totally hooked on painting.

I know this painting has many flaws, but when I see that something, that is not good, I stay positive and try to practice the technique more and more.

I hope to learn much more using forums, books, internet and more in the future.

That's how I got hooked into painting...by watching online videos. It's been two years now that a I have been painting and it's amazing the resources you can find on the internet.

Thank you The mountain part, I was really happy with. The other stuff, like the trees and the bushes, did not turn out that great. I want to practice more on the trees and bushes and then go back to this painting and add some more texture in the future

What a great start! I been growing more and more fond of bushes and trees that look like yours. You will get better at making them more realistic but this painting is very nice to look at. Congratulations on your new found skills. Have fun!

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.
