My first class in October and it was so nice to have Janet back in the studio. She is so excited to be painting and does so in many mediums.
Today, Janet wanted to work on the Bob Ross style of pine trees. So, we took out practice canvases and devoted just over two hours practicing them. She went from being very tentative and trying to draw the trees to finally realizing that if you relax, hold the brush at the proper angle and just let it do the work for you, the magic happens.
The pictures you see below depict the remaining 45 minutes we spent creating an unusual approach to painting trees. I think the result is really exciting and I plan to explore more works similar to this. Thank you Janet for the idea and congratulations to you on your EXCELLENT painting creation. You are so much fun to work with. I look forward to our next class.
