Apologies – the link up was broken the last few days, whoops! All fixed now – so those waiting to link up can go do that now on each post! 🙂

Paint-Along Series #4: Forest Scene

Yesterday we worked on Bob Ross trees outside….today we’ll take a little walk into the forest! This is a very forgiving painting; the trees and brush surround a simple path, and you can add as few or as many tree trunks as you’d like in your painting. It’s also a great time to practice mixing your green paints! I’ve been having fun mixing them too – well, sorta. LOL! Yesterday I painted a large version of the mountain scene – you can watch the tail end of it on Periscope and see how exhausted by trees I became at the end! ha!

Share your own painting at the end of the post, and use the hashtag #paintalongwithsandy on Instagram so we can all see what you’re creating!  Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
