Greetings online world! Some updates for ya…

Painting happy little trees!
Bob Ross is just so soothing to watch when I get home from painting. Considering how infrequently brushes have been utilized in my previous murals (mostly spray paint usually) — it is fun learning new tips and tricks. A few things have been tested already, including the puddle and tiny tree techniques. The main tree was painted before my Bob Ross kick started. Going to add some more trees, layers and depth to the tunnel landscape, but many of the main elements are in there now. Bob also introduced me to the use of a knife for painting, instead of a brush. This is how I did the puddle and bark on the trees. Going to rock the knife more often!
The main goal is to make the most interesting mural out of a very low, long wall. The composition needs to be broadened to include more elements — maybe some shimmery water will make it’s way into the picture soon. And more happy little trees!!!! Basically – just go hard in the paint.
This is what I have been painting to for a month long — NorCal Bass Hippy Music compiled by Jason Burruss.
Here is one example of a fantastic chill bass hippy mix from Jason –
Lastly I took it upon myself to find some funny Bob Ross memes to share with ya’ll…
