Step-by-Step Lessons from America’s Favorite Painter Bob Ross
Here's a simplified sample of some instructions:
Paint the sky with criss-cross strokes, and add the water using long horizontal strokes. Blend the entire canvas. Paint the clouds, then use sweeping upward strokes to lightly “fluff” them.
MOUNTAINS & SNOW
Shape just the top edge of the mountain, then “pull” the paint down toward the base. Add snow to the right sides of the peaks. Snow on the shadowed sides is made with white and blue.
Make the evergreens with a fan brush. Hold it vertically to create the center line of the tree, then use one corner for the top branches. Make the branches larger as you near the base.
Reverse the fan brush to reflect the dark tree color in the water. Underpaint the large foreground evergreens with the fan brush. A mixture of brown and white makes the tree trunks.
Scratch small sticks and twigs into your painting for a realistic effect. Then it’s time to sign your painting! After your painting dries completely, frame it and hang it up, or gift it to a friend!
