Title: Where Are All the Bob Ross Paintings?
Post by: azozeo on July 13, 2019, 12:52:46 PM


Bob Ross made three versions of each painting that appeared on “The Joy of Painting.” The first was made before the show, to be used as a reference. He painted the second during the 26-minute taping, sometimes with last-minute improvisations. The third was made afterward, for instructional books.

Fascinating story. Bob Ross was a PBS staple in the 80s, and was well watched by people who never picked up a brush but who loved his pleasing, low key style.

Better than Prozac.

Bob was my designer guru in the 90's. If I was off on Saturday mornings from work I'd sit home & watch his show religiously.
