My wife did her first Bob Ross painting while I did this one. It was enlightening to see someone else coming up five or six months behind me, struggling with a lot of the same things I did. I'm obviously still not particularly good with the palette knife, but even being able to give a few pointers to her made me realize I have learned a couple things at least. It was really fun to paint with someone else. I don't know this was a subject I would have picked necessarily, but I realized as I was going that I was familiar enough with the techniques that I could branch out a bit and make the painting my own. It helped to have distinction not only from Bob's sample, but my wife's as well so our paintings really were our own.
