Painting with Bob Ross ... and Justine

So lately, Bob Ross painting show has gone up on Netflix and on Hulu. Deep down I have always wanted to be a painter, but have never done much of it. Probably because I'm not that great at it. Lately I have been trying to do it more. If you haven't been able to tell.

My friend Justine and I get together every once in a while. Last time we got together we experimented with grilled cheese sandwiches and soaked in the hot tub. This time I threw out the idea of painting with Bob Ross. She was all for it! So we gave it a shot.

You know... Bob makes it look so easy. He does this professional painting in 30 minutes. Following him step by step... our paintings still didn't end up looking like his... and it took us like 2 hours of pausing and rewinding to get what he did done in 30 minutes. But it was the first attempt. Maybe it will get easier? Also we were painting with acrylic paints and he paints with oils. Also I was painting on paper and not canvas.... but I am just making excuses. Here we are starting out...

That all being said, even though my painting didn't end up looking like his... I still am pretty happy with how it turned out. Enough so that I want to keep painting with Bob Ross. Plus, he is so soothing to listen to and watch paint. Hopefully I have another Bob Ross Painting to show soon... but for now, here is my first attempt which I'm pretty happy with.
