Third ever painting. Painting a seascape was very enjoyable to me! I'm still trying to figure out how Bob Ross so effortlessly creates rocks and mountains with a simple pass of a palette knife.


Voy Kay Conqueror of Challenges

The answer would be that he practiced it up front. Every painting on the show has been done once, and is placed next to him (out of image) as an example. He also rehearsed most of his paintings and comments. Never call that cheating (like some people do) but simply a very nice gesture towards us to watch his episodes in a fluent and entertaining manner. And of course, most importantly, the man has painted over 30.000 paintings in his life, so how well trained can one be? No worries, we are ALL jealous about his skills. And talking of skills, your waves are very impressive, smae as those dark skies. Well done!!
