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.
