Here's a pond! I tried a new way of painting trees. Click it for higher resolution.
And this animation shows how the painting came together.
Northern California Coast at Night
I used some new brushes in this one: a detail round, a small filbert, and a new blender. Lots of new strokes in this one. The dark patch in the sky below the moon has a fun explanation. I rested my pinkie on the canvas while highlighting the moon, and ...
Midtown Atlanta from Piedmont Park

This painting is a departure from Bob Ross's wet on wet style. I painted this in four sessions allowing the paint to dry between sessions. This opens up more possibilities for detail, and it'll be fun to explore this further. The subject is Hattie's Hollow in Hanging ...
Autumn Barn in the Woods
And this is the underpainting layer:
High Falls of the Baptism River

Pasture at Sunset
The details in the grass were fun to paint.
Pond and Barn
The reflection of the red roof in the pond is nice :)
Spiky Lump Mountains
Spiky Lump Mountains, my first painting.
