In The Joy Of Painting With Bob Ross, Bob Ross offers soothing words of encouragement to viewers and painting hobbyists in this enormously popular series which has captivated audiences worldwide since 1982. It is the most-watched, most-recognised television art program in history. Ross, who died in 1995, is a cult figure, with nearly 1,500,000 Facebook followers and a legacy of hundreds of episodes of a TV program which has aired all around the world. In the series, Ross demonstrates his 'wet-on-wet' technique, which eliminates the need for each layer of paint to dry. In real-time, Ross creates tranquil natural scenes, including his trademark 'happy' clouds, cascading waterfalls, snow-covered forests, serene lakes, and distant mountain summits.
