I am reminded of Bob Ross’s technique of single color shapes put
together to create a bigger shape!
Although, I think you nailed this better than he could have!
That’s very kind of you, Ryan, to say that. I don’t work the same way as Bob Ross. I watched a few of his videos once and he seems to be a perfect gentleman, very softly spoken, and relaxed. There was an Irish version of Bob, called David Willis, and I once watched a few of his vids, which was interesting. I think the originator of that particular style or school of painting was Bill Alexander.
Yes, seems he was (still is) very influential.
