I have been teaching Bob Ross paintings for many years and have been trying to figure out how to make this piece more accessible to beginners than the original. Because this work has been very well received. Because of the difficulty in getting used to using a fan brush, I have found that using a round brush or 1 inch brush works well for painting backgrounds. I recommend this method to beginners this way. Most importantly, it is easy to create beautiful painting!
Of course, I am aware that the use of brushes and knives is intentional in each episode, but sometimes it is necessary to be creative in this way. Also, unlike the original, this time I used liquid clear and instead of sap green I used phthalo green.



I love green. This appeals to me very much,

Really beautiful!

Super Version , great πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ


Wonderful Jin!

Beautiful, well painted, cheers

I really like this one Jin. Also makes me happy that you are thinking about beginners!

Thank you all for your comments.
This episode was the second piece I taught to a high school girl who has been attendeding my class. She happily told me that she had exhibited her painting at a small town festival and someone had asked her to sell it.

one of my favorite episodes, you nailed it. Really cool that you developed new techniques to make it easier for a beginner. That takes a lot of time and patience, you must be an amazing teacher!
