Painting with Bob Ross: Learn to paint in oil step by step!

Painting with Bob Ross is the newest tutorial book from Walter Foster and Quarto Publishing. Due out 4th Sept, 2018, it's 128 pages and available in paperback format.

I think almost everyone has Bob Ross memories.  Mine usually involved gasping in shock and thinking he had totally ruined the painting he was working on.  He always made it gorgeous of course and along the way slipped in a few lessons in his life philosophy.  Relax, breathe, go with the moment and have fun. 

This book brought back such great memories for me of watching his public broadcasting show and listening to him talking about painting and life. 

The book includes 16 project tutorials with supplies and preparation as well as a large full colour photo of the project.  The intro pages are followed by step by step tutorials for laying in background, washes, detail and finishing.

There are also original Bob Ross quotes interspersed in the tutorial chapters.

It felt like a really lovely visit with a good friend. 

Five stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
