Hi Everybody, This is Brian from Art Party Unlimited.In this video we'll be taking this painting from a Bob Ross class we teach called "Arctic Beauty" and making some refinements to it to improve its appearance. If you haven't seen our tips on how to improve your class paintings then please click in the upper right of your screen and watch that first, then come on back to this video. I am employing those tips as I work through this painting.I'll be working with Bob Ross paints today and a variety of brushes. Please consider supporting us by making a supply purchase or a donation by clicking the links in the description below this video. Let's get started.The contrast on my mountains needs some improvement, especially where the highlights and shadows meet. That break from dark to light is important to define with high contrast.So you'll see me give that a little bit of love here.My mountains were way too bright, and frankly, didn't look convincing enough to me, so I'm popping back in some of the dark purple I mixed just to break up all the white that I see. Since the mountains are the focus in this painting I don't mind them being bright - just not too bright.The edges of my mountains in the distance need a bit of shoring up, especially since they are near the light source. They should be white instad of lavendar, so I'm adding the smallest amount of paint just to make a solid line along the top of my mountains.One of the things I love about this particular painting from Bob Ross is that he liked to use pretty colors regardless of whether or not they were realistic in nature. It makes it fun. Otherwise this night scene with be nothing but dark blues and lavenders. That would be uninteresting in Bob's world. So in that spirit I want to brighten up this field quite a bit and add some texture to the grasses. I'm using a very old filbert with wonky bristles to add some of the texture I mentioned.In class we added in the bit of reflected light as Bob did it in his painting, but I also want to show some light at the tree tops, so I'm applying a light mixture of lavender to some of the trees, just to keep things from being flat.I'm using a 1/4" rake to accomplish that.Although the waterfall isn't the focal point, I want to brighten it up so that viewers move toward it after they leave the mountains, I'll also work on brightening the trees and surrounding rocks.The changes I made have drastically improved the painting. Paintings are only done when the artist says they are done, so keep refining them over time after you get out of class.I hope this video is helpful in inspiring you to refine your paintings again and again.
