Working with oils…

Let’s talk about Bob Ross…
Tuesday, Oct. 11

When it comes to working with oils, I love the Bob Ross wet on wet technique, in part because it speeds up the painting process and allows students to complete a painting in one sitting.

 

This week’s Mountain Serenity painting is a good example of what can be done by everyone, from beginner to experienced artist.

 

This painting has it all – almost all the brush strokes that are Bob Ross’ trademark, plus of course the ever important liquid (in this case liquid white) undercoat that insures that the paint will flow on the canvas with ease.

 

Tomorrow I will talk about that first important step that Bob adapted from a technique developed by Bill Alexander many, many years ago.
