Trivia

Bob made three copies of every painting he made. The first copy always hid off screen, and Ross referred to it while the cameras rolled (none of his on-air paintings were spontaneous). Ross painted a third copy when filming finished. This time, an assistant would stand behind him and snap photos of each brush stroke. These pictures went into Ross' "How to" books. See more »

Good program!
28 January 2005 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Joy of Painting was a good program. It was hosted by painter and artist Bob Ross. A unique individual with thick bushy hair and a beard. He would actually host this short show very well and give directions on how to paint these lovely pictures quite nicely. Its been a very long while since I have watched this show. I am not sure if this television program is still on television but if it is check it out on PBS or another channel that airs older programming because this is a different and interesting hobby and if you like nature and love looking at the sky and trees and like to see beautiful paintings then check out how there were created!
