I'm not an artist, I do however love watching Bob Ross paint.

I found him by accident on an early morning TV program a few years ago, and he has that nature that makes you believe ANYONE can paint like that.

That is a rare commodity, such positivity and grace.



yep, even those who can't seem to paint enjoy watching and feeling like they can.

He was certainly talented and entertaining.

Can any of the artists who have popped into this thread recommend a book or video using acrylics. Bob Ross used a wet on wet oil technique, but I am a leftie and impatient, so oils are hard for me to use...

I use acrylics just like someone would oil paints.

You can do the same thing with them as far as I can tell

Hmmm, I thought that his wet on wet technique used only very slow drying oils and wouldn't work with fast drying acrylics. I will have to order a video and experiment!

Along the same vein, where is everyone's fave place to order art supplies?

I just go to Wal Mart.
My first paint set in 20+ years was a cheap acrylic set in a wooden box but with it I created this:

And this:

And I still have most of the paints!
You do have to work a bit faster with acrylics for sure. Get a little spray bottle to keep the paints moist,or you can buy a pallet that keeps the paints moist with a sponge in the bottom, but I just hope the paints don't dry before I finish something and sometimes it helps to go directly from the tubes with the brushes unless you are using a fan brush or something bigger.
I found this youtube video for beginners with acrylics:


Hope that helps!

I just use pallet paper for a pallet. It just like a notebook only it is coated on the front side of each paper to keep the paints from leaking through the pages.Almost like wax paper.

I only saw this thread today! RIP Bob Ross.

He has influenced so much more than just painting.

He also inspired the ASMR phenomenon...

Here's a clip from Dutch TV (with subtitles)



Here is a thread, for anyone who doesn't know what ASMR is.

Tfw.

WOW!

Not only Boss Ross inspired...but just WOW....The coffee beans! This is the first I have heard of ASMR, but I experience it a lot and didn't even know it!



My mom used to tap the top of my head with her finger nails and it gave me almost the same feeling as the noises. I never realized that it was something like that!
Felt from the head and down both arms...checking that thread!

I loved bob Ross, he was such a gentle and genuine person. Hard to imagine him as a sniper.

Anyway, I couldn't find full episodes of the Joy of Painting on YouTube. After a little digging I found a site in China that hosts the program (it's still English). Kinda slow during peak China time, but thought I'd share.

Joy of Painting

Now I'm off to watch happy trees!
