Bob is god. I have a postcard I won from his website for answering the most questions right about Bob Ross that sits across from my bed and greets me every morning. I don't oil paint, paint landscapes or even want to paint like him -- Bob's style is very obvious, anyone can identity a painting using his techniques, and honestly usually amateur. But it doesn't matter, I always watch. He's inspiring regardless of what art YOU do, which is what's so amazing about him.
Not to mention, no other art show has made me hang onto the edge of my seat wondering what brush stroke he's gonna use yet. He can literally change an entire painting from a bunch of blobby shapes to a masterpiece scenery with two flicks of his wrist, it's insane. I'm always mesmerized with how simple his finishing touches are that transform his paintings.
oh wow that's awesome. Yes he is very inspiring. He made art seem more enjoyable even if you make accidents they are just happy mistakes. Watching him paint, you think he messes up at first putting a big blotch of black or green and with the next color he uses or paint stroke it comes out to be something even more beautiful like a tree or a mountain. I will forever love his work.
