That's great Mike for your first painting! I am terrible at scenery, (animals come easier), but you've done a great job at the different values of the trees. I think you should definitely get some supplies and keep it up. :)

I distinctly remember saying "there, there" to myself as I blotted the canvas with the brush to create the trees.
LOL! Bob was a great teacher. A while back I actually ordered a video of his and some paints and brushes, but all I learned was oils just aren't my thing. I got very frustrated with them because they are much less forgiving than acrylics. Acrylics dry fast and if you mess up you can just paint over it, not so much with oils. If you want to try your hand at oils I could hook you up. ;)

Did you mean that all you learned from the video was that oil painting isn't your thing? Was the video geared toward oil painting, then, or did you just happen to buy oil paints? I would have thought that his techniques would be helpful when painting with acrylics as well.
Oh, I didn't mean anything against his teaching! Yes, it was geared toward oils and that's what I bought, but just didn't care for them. :)
