Bob Ross Landscape Paintings

Bob Ross was my first impetus for buying oil paints and painting a series of landscape paintings along with his television show. His personality and approach to oil painting made it easier for me to understand and paint something that actually made me feel proud of myself. I enjoyed his style, and miss those half hour periods of time I would spent painting with him.

While many have criticized his technique and his company’s current business practices, I can’t deny that he was my first inspiration for being an artist, and I’m thankful. His paintings and personality on TV will live on, hopefully inspiring more creative minds throughout the world.

  3. Just wanted to say that art is being used to help military veterans in the UK at various ‘Combat Stress’ centres. There was a Bob Ross book at the centre I attend. I was never arty but using his techniques allowed me to produce something creative that I could be proud of rather than something destructive.

  4. Bob Ross is the man! I am absolutely sure his fro gives him magical painting powers. I really do like his painting though, all silliness aside.
