I received a copy of Painting with Bob Ross through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This is a really fun art book that reminded me so very much of the Bob Ross painting show…and I really do miss that show. This book is perfect for anybody that wants to learn to oil paint, as well as for any fans of the late Bob Ross. If you’ve watched all of his shows and want something a bit newer, this might be perfect for you. Even if you haven’t watched his shows, the painting guides in here are very well laid out.

Bob Ross always had a talent for breaking up the painting process and laying it all out for the aspiring artist. Thankfully this book managed to recreate that ability fairly well. It’s not quite the same as watching the show – however you also don’t have to be afraid about not keeping up with him either, as you decide when to turn the page.

What I really loved about this book is that they took the time to share some of Bob Ross’ history with us. I can honestly tell you that I didn’t know a lot of what was included in it, so it was very informative for me. Having this as the introduction was a really nice touch – it felt like they were honoring him.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
