Mountain Waterfall - Bob Ross in Acrylic S2 E12 #30in30 - 24

Today, I began painting with Bob, but quickly started to struggle with his Alizarin Crimson in the sky. I wanted to see how he created the waterfall so I kept going. I changed the sky, smoothed out Bobs pointy Alaskan mountains and changed his centralised composition, but I feel it’s still a work in progress. Parts will stay, but it needs a few more tweaks. Bob himself says it’s a good practice painting. As you can see below, my paintings are totally different to Bob’s finished pieces, but it’s not my intention to copy.

Mountain Waterfall took me far longer than I would like and I was in danger of over working it, so it was time to stop and ponder.
