With the appearance of Bob Ross' The Joy of Painting series on twitch reaching +200k views peak it might have inspider many people who have not had any experience with are or abbandoned it at some point in their lives.
I myself used to sketch alot of portraits but for some reason I haven't touched the pencil in over 5 years.
Last week, during the marathon I fell sick and I happend to rewatch almost all of the show. The overall positivity and ease in which he hosted these shows striked me greatly and I've finally decided to renew my love in art once again.
Are any of you guys familiar with Bob Ross' technique? Do you have any recomendations on how to get the oil paints for a good price in Europe (Poland specificly)? Would you recomend starting off with a small canvas to get used to everything? I have no idea of indicating a "good" paint from a crappy one? Are the Bob Ross' oil paints sold on Amazon ok?
I'll have to double check but I've been watching episodes from a channel on Youtube. They have several seasons.
As far as technique goes, I want to try but I have shitty acrylics and no budget to get oils. Acrylics aren't terrible, but these ones are old. When I think about it, they're probably from my grandpa's kit, he did a lot of painting before he died in '98, some of it probably inspired by Bob Ross. Could show one we have in the house.
>>2283181 Speedball as far as I know is just a big company for pen nibs, unless the name denotes a specific kind of nib, then I have seen it recommended for subtitles in comics.
Enough about that though, I spy a smallish palette with wells. I have slowly started to hate mine because of how limiting those wells get. I'd prefer a huge flat one like ross used (and, in fact, have one).
2 Questions: What do I do with thinner? Does a half bucket last a whole painting? Do I use it for multiple paintings? How do I know when to change it out?
2: How do I keep my clouds from picking up too much blue and becoming washed out into the background? I've tried, and can do storm clouds and the like just fine, but plain white fluffy clouds elude me.
Can you recommend som od Bob Ross style of tutorial but with watercolors? >>2279790 >Poland specificly a czego anon sie spodziewasz? Przeciez wszedzie farbt olejne kosztuja pieniadze, olso pokaz coś fajnego
>>2279790 Bob Ross's technique is based on overlapping things over eachother to create the illusion of depth. It's intended as a fun way to pass the time but it will never teach you to do stuff like pic related.
>>2290277 has it though? the frame within a frame is leading the eye well, and honestly the light and shadows on the left are a secondary if not primary focal point. It's pretty clear how they put down lots of effort on that part whereas the overhanging branches on the right are subdued. They wanted to capture the winter and the snow and they put focus on that, the characters are almost tertiary.The only thing I react over is I think the americans don't stand out enough, they're in shadow when they probably would be lit up like heck, or at least behind them. And also, the fallen tree looks like it's floating in the air.
>>2290790 The framing with the frame is something that's always bothered me in composition. It doesn't feel authentic and is basically babbies first lesson in composition. Idk. It's just a dull technique imo.
