The Joy of Painting (1983)
25 April 2005 | by src35See all my reviews

I so enjoy Bob Ross "The Joy Of Painting" and used to watch it each day it was on. I found it entrancing the way he can create, describe and instruct us to do the painting. He has such a soft embracing voice as he instructs as though he really cares about what he is doing. I have not watched till recently when I decided to paint again went searching internet and TV guides to see if it is still on. It is but not the "every day" it used to be but once a week. Although I would like more I will take what I can get. I like the way he would instruct by saying, "this is your world put as many trees as you want wherever you want them. It was as if he were saying you do not have to copy me you can create how you want it to be. I would love for it to be back on TV everyday. I just watch the first show since I found it again and he answered a question I had about how to create a certain illusion in my painting.
