Artwork

Painting is something that I've always wanted to try. So after getting my new iPad, I tried to work through one of Bob Ross's videos as soon as I could. Here's my attempt at the one from season 14 episode 1. In the spirit of Bob's technique, I tried making up stories about the things in my painting. The empty boat was used by a traveler to cross the water body. But he didn't secure it well enough. Now he has to walk for several hours to get home. The sky diver opened his parachute too late (he did not account for the mountain's elevation) and will probably crash into the mountain too fast. Hopefully, the snow will cushion his fall. There's a lone hiker on the mountain. He misjudged the slope. Shortly after the moment captured by the painting, he slips and slides all the way down. Let's hope he's able to call for help using his radio. The mountain goat is enjoying the fabulous day. An SR-71 Blackbird is flying by at greater than Mach 3. It's sonic boom might trigger a minor avalanche. Am I doing this right?

I've been working on this one for while. I hesitated to call it done for a long time. But I guess with art, it's done when you feel it's done. This was also inspired by a Bob Ross tutorial. The best part of working from home is that I've been connecting more with my artistic side. #circuitbreaker #stayhome #procreate
