Postcard Post: “Trail Through The Autumn Meadow”

I have another Bob Ross Inspired Painting for you. I call this one Trail Through The Autumn Meadow.

Trail Through The Autumn Meadow Postcard

This one was a lot of fun to do. I painted along with my childhood art inspirer, Bob Ross, as he did his painting, called Delightful Meadow Home. You can see how he did his awesome painting by clicking here.

If you watch the video, or just skip to the end when it is completed, you will probably notice right away that I didn’t paint a “delightful meadow home” in mine. I felt that was a little too advanced for me right now and plus, I didn’t want any structures in my painting. So I left it out, as well as the fence posts that are seen in Ross’s painting. But everything else that you see, I’ve tried to do; everything from the evening sky to the pathway that goes through the meadow, right into the forest.

I’m quite proud of this one. It’s still not as good as Quiet Pond but better than Evening Forest, my previous two postcards that I’ve done last month.

I have to say too that my track record for postcard making has been pretty good lately. I painted three back in May (I only posted two of them on the blog), the most I think I’ve done in a while. Part of this is because I’ve been doing these inspired paintings quite often (this one being my third so far) and had some sort of foundation to go from. But I think I’m ready to move on to something different; something more fantasy-based, like how many of my earlier postcards were. I’ll see what I can come up with!

But for the time being, I hope that you all have enjoyed my Bob Ross Inspired Paintings as much as I did painting them. And I hope you’ve enjoyed some of the videos that I’ve guided you to watch (through the links provided) with me and helping to remember a great artist, both in the past and in the present (thanks to YouTube).

Now, go paint something!
