    Inspiration and relaxation: The Joy of Painting

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Komposten, Nov 2, 2015.

    Since the release of Twitch's area for "Creative" streaming they have hosted a marathon of Bob Ross' "The Joy of Painting" series. Whether you're interested in painting or not, I definitely suggest you to check it out. In just about half an hour he makes the most amazing of paintings, whilst also talking about what he's doing and the techniques he uses.

    Just sitting there and listening to his voice and seeing the painting grow is so relaxing, fascinating and inspiring (and I'm not even interested in painting)!

    Here's a link: The Joy of Painting Marathon
    The stream should run until Friday, if I'm not mistaken.

    I used to like watching Bob Ross when I was younger, but over the years my understanding and appreciation of art has matured, and I can now see his technique for what it is; Chocolate Box Painting for Idiots.

    His art is utterly void of artistic merit, and says absolutely nothing.

    :superlaugh:

    Let me just clarify I have nothing against the man. If the world was full of gentle folk like him, it would be a much happier place... full of shit paintings, but much happier.

    And speaking of shit, it wasn't my intention to drop one on your thread, @Komposten

    Well if you don't dig the Joy of Painting with Bob Ross then you at least gotta be into Bill Nye The Science Guy, Reading Rainow or Mr. Rogers? :p

    I'm from the UK, Kingtype. Bob Ross is one of the very few American imports we used to get back then.

    Oh, him and the Red Hand Gang. That was American, right?
