Hi Readers! Happy Tuesday to you! 😊
I have been bit busy with homesickness and work so wasn’t able to post anything last week. 😭🤒
Today’s post is about my recently finished painting. 🙋 (Ma sha Allah)
This painting 👆 that I have created is inspired by the legend Bob Ross. He was an American painter who conducted a series of painting tutorials on television in the early 80’s called ‘the joy of painting’. You can watch them on YouTube. They are very popular with aspiring artists all over the world.
Bob Ross served n the US Air Force and was based in Alaska hence the recurring mountains and snow in his paintings. Personally I am a big nature lover at heart and have this obsession with old run down barns and cottages. So I love his paintings and wish to recreate them all one day. (In sha Allah)
Bob Ross taught ‘wet on wet’ technique where he kept adding paint to an already wet canvas i.e. he didn’t wait for it to dry. Though his paintings are done in oil paints; I work mostly with Acrylic paints, and so I have done this painting using acrylics (Reason being that acrylic paints dry faster).
I have started with the sky and moon 🙋🎨 Colours used 👉 yellow, blue and white.

Hope you liked my painting! 💕
