Painting In Need Of A Title






This painting was done on Sunday at a 1 day art course. It's an oil painting and the second time I've done the course - the last time was back in April when I was due to do landscapes but got my days wrong.


I did enjoy the day a lot - but although the above painting has turned out really well I don't feel as "good" about it as the painting I did last week from scratch by myself - I guess it's because the mountain painting is based on the Bob Ross method and thousands of students down the years will probably have produced something quite similar. Still - I had a good time and think I learnt a few things

Any suggestions for titles for the mountain painting, serious or otherwise, are much appreciated
PS: Bob Ross had a beard, Van Gough had a beard, Rolf Harris has a beard.  Coincidence?

"View from a Window at Winter" (from the series of famous "View from a Window" paintings by renowned artist Hungry Pixie)


I am SO impressed with this painting...and your humility too. :)

Incidentally, my father had a beard and he couldn't paint for toffee.

English - nice

Lydia - interesting that you should comment about it being from a series - because my attempts at life drawing so far have been so laughably bad that i've designated them part of a series called "Demented Jelly Baby"

Peter - i can see you are a man after my own thought process. The painting that i did on the last course was of an iris, but i called it "Stag At Bay" because it was supposed to have been a landscape course only i got my days wrong

beardy people are cool! not that I'm biased or anything... I love the third phase of this painting, looks like an arctic dune.
as for names... what about calling it Alan.. or George?...
Very nice stuff, well done you!

watercats - yes, indeed The Ronald has a beard and is noted for his artistic abilities. The evidence is growing...
