As a youth he used his artistic talents to paint carriages and murals for local aristocrats.

Bill and his wife, Margaret, traveled throughout the United States and Canada teaching painting and making friends, often selling paintings to meet living expenses along the way. During this time Bill worked hard to develop his wet-on-wet technique and products. He developed the base medium Magic White, extra-thick oil paints, and special palette knives and brushes. These products work together to help artists, even a beginning artist, create beautiful scenes on the canvas. By 1974, when he completed his first Emmy-winning Magic of Oil painting television show, Bills dream had become a reality. He had built himself a home in North America a home in the hearts of thousands who discovered with Bills help that they could have the almighty power to fire in and be happy painters too.

  1. Qué le pones a la brocha al final para hacer la difuminación del lago y que quede como agua. Gracias. ¿Tinner? ¿Aguarras? ¿Agua?.

  2. I understand taking a little artistic license and maybe messing with the lighting a bit, but that yellow tree on the left with the green shadow contradicts the lighting of the mountains a bit. It just doesn’t make sense to me. It frames the painting up a little but it just looks wrong. Setting up blocks to draw the viewer to the center is fine, but when you ignore the lighting of the background it just looks like a mistake. Also, the colors seem very carelessly mixed.

  3. Though I love him paint immensly I have noticed that light came from the left on to the mountains, but from the right onto the the trees. How come??????

  4. Clean your brush often and use multiple brushes. Also, the more you mix paint the more muddy it will become. Learning color theory is also very important.

  5. I have a question if anyone can answer it.
    I am a young oil painter, and when i paint with a bunch of colors. They always get mixed up and make a muddy color. Does anyone have any advice?

  6. That’s what irks me since I took up oil painting this past spring. Granted, I have followed Bob Ross’ paintings in the paintings in the paintings that I’ve done so far, but that’s because I’m learning. And in each painting, I go by notes that I have and don’t look at an actual painting as I go. I do have original ideas planned that I’ll be trying before long.

  7. Oh lord, until watching this video I used to think that the painters painted every single detail at a time and I was thinking like “Oh my god, how do they get all those details in with that huge brush?”

    Now I’ve realized they just swipe the area and it looks like a mountain etc., genius :o

  8. The technique is to get more people interested in painting but at the end of the day it is a limited and very basic system, lets just hope some people eventually learned how to paint with the full spectrum of techniques. Oil paint is the most beautiful of mediums and it is easily capable of acheiving mind blowing effects, i know because standing in front of a masterpiece once i was totally gobsmacked because in the hands of a genius it takes on a look of magic.

  9. Your wrong.. and they are right.. bob ross and bill both suck.. i mean come on.. are those trees or rocks.. rubbish pure rubbish

  10. I like Alexander, but I think this is a pretty sloppy painting … The tree’s look like a kid fingerpainted them :>) LOL
