OMG - That was HARD. I forgot how to hold the brush, and my colors got all mixed. In the end I had lavender snow. BUT I DID IT. I broke the Ice with this Icy painting.
Sort of anticlimactic considering Valentine's Day and the Start of the Olympics and all, but my own little Victory none the less. I had watched the episode a couple of times before starting. I ran it once at regular speed with sound. That's the one that makes me drift off. Then again, muted. Then I ran it in fast forward just to remember the scene we were going for. Even after all of that preparation, I still fell behind Bob. I had to pause him about 5 times throughout just so I could mix my paint (which I remembered that I'm horrible at) and then I ran out of white because I turned it all lavender with Alys.Crimson and too much Phalo Blue. Oh Yea, AND since I am watching the earliest series the colors are not the same. He's using Burnt Umber and I don't have Burnt Umber. I know it's probably just like something else. I need to Google that.*
Anyway, please enjoy the video. I edited out a lot of "thinking" time, and of course sped it up 4x normal. I still think it's a little long for enjoyment. Next time I'm going to edit it down more so we are entertained, and not bored.
Share the Joy,
*Wikipedia : Burnt Umber was one of the frequently-used colours on the pallet of Bob Ross during early seasons of The Joy of Painting. Later he switched to mostly dark sienna for his lighter brown colours, while still occasionally using a Burnt Umber acrylic to under-paint some of his works.
