Thank you all for your kind words of encouragment, it means a lot to me,
Ds, no not good enough to do portraits,lol.
Hywel, i won't be framing this one i dont think,
as it will most likely end up stored in the garden shed with my others.

Brilliant - have you been having lessons from Bob Ross?

27 Mar, 2009

 

Your spot on there, It was Bob that got me started GF.

Bob Ross is (was) FAB! How can a 2" decorating paint brush produce those wonderful trees? He made it look so easy! My hubby bought some of his paints and canvasses a few years ago and had a go at painting some of the scenes we'd seen on TV. He really enjoyed it and the paintings were really good. Unfortunately I am not very artistic in the painting field - so I'll leave it to hubby, Bob and FF and stick to the gardening.

Glad to hear your Hubby got the Bob Ross bug he was a great teatcher, sadly missed,
