Bob Ross makes it look so easy and relaxing. Over 90 episodes available online:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000txym

"American painter Bob Ross creates a cold day warmed by daylight's radiance, as he paints a quiet mountain masterpiece with a beautiful lake in a glen that will leave you rested and at peace with the world.

Bob offers soothing words of encouragement to viewers and painting hobbyists in an enormously popular series that has captivated audiences worldwide since 1982. Ross is a cult figure, with nearly two million Facebook followers and 3,000 instructors globally. His soothing, nurturing personality is therapy for the weary, and his respect for nature and wildlife helps heighten environmental awareness.

Across the series, Ross demonstrates his unique painting technique, which eliminates the need for each layer of paint to dry. In real time, he creates tranquil scenes taken from nature, including his trademark ‘happy’ clouds, cascading waterfalls, snow-covered forests, serene lakes and distant mountain summits. Many of Bob’s faithful viewers are not painters at all - they are relaxing and unwinding with Bob’s gentle manner and encouraging words, captivated by the magic taking place on the canvas."

Martin.

It's all on YouTube, worldwide. This is the actual episode I linked to:



It's worth clicking the full screen [] option.

It seems the family of the late Bob Ross gifted all his broadcasts to anyone and everyone and they are all available on YouTube.

Excellent - I'll have a look.

His thumbnails on iPlayer looked decidedly "American" but maybe the programmes themselves were more generic.....

Great find whatever Martin.  :thumbs

Opera browser has a built in VPN. No idea if it would work for the iPlayer though and I assume you would need to be able to log in to the iPlayer anyway ? Mind you, if your Granny in the UK has a licence and needs you to set up her online account  :hmm  I think it just needs a post code ?
Of course I wouldn't encourage such a thing  :It's a no no

Cheers

Matt

:lol: :lol: :lol:

In all seriousness, if I could produce a painting like that with a 2 inch brush, a scraper and a fan brush, I would be a very happy camper!!!!

I was making notes for my forthcoming attempts to do my sky.
