Following a Rob Boss painting tutorial

Following a Rob Boss painting tutorial


*sexy music* Hi. Today, ladies and gentlemen, we will be following a tutorial from the one, the only, Bob Ross. Me, I worship Bob Ross So yeah, I’m very excited for this. I’ve already gone and changed into my dad’s white shirt So if you’re wondering why I look ridiculous, that’s why. So yeah, Everyone just grab your two inch brushes, and your liquid white, and let’s just get right into it. “I have my old canvas up here as usual, but I’ve covered it today with a thin even coat of liquid clear,” Okay, I did not do that- So I’ve never used oil paints before. I usually paint with acrylic. So this is all really new to me. If you’re wondering what the difference between acrylic paint and oil paint is, let me explain. Acrylic paint, pretty much your craft paint. It’s really easy to use, you don’t need any mediums, pretty much. Oil paints, on the other hand, is like a whole ‘nother level First of all, they’re like really toxic, and they take days to dry, which is probably a good thing cause that gives you a lot of time to go back and fix stuff. I’ve already, like, opened up a bunch of windows, ’cause I don’t want to just die from the paint fumes *disgusted breath* That’s smells really bad. By the way, the liquid clear that he’s talking about, I did some research and I think it’s linseed oil. Originally, I was gonna do this video dressed as Bob Ross, but I didn’t need any more comments accusing me of copying any other youtubers. In other news, however… I’M oFFiciALlY MonETizED! So all of you who think that I’m buying subs, guess what? YouTube would have never monetized me if I even had bought one sub, so… S u c k m y l e f t t o e . If you’re an artist, and you’re watching this, I’m really sorry that I’m just botching all of your customs. If I went to an actual art class, I’m pretty sure that those renaissance preaching old hags would just scream at me for not doing anything right. But you know what? That’s the beauty of art, you know, you can do whatever you want. I really should not be talking because I’m not qualified whatsoever to talk about this. The one thing I’ve noticed about Bob Ross, is that he doesn’t use a lot of paint and that is gonna be pretty rough for me ´cause I’m used to acrylics, and acrylics art really thin and you’re supposed to build them up. “I’m gonna start today with a small amount of Indian yellow, like so. *brushing noise* With it. Absolutely. Right into Crimson. Alizarin Crimson,” aAAHH! Stop going so fast! Jesus Christ. Okay. I did not buy, like, the Bob Ross “set”. I had to go to Michaels and, like, finesse my way through it. So, I bought this cheap set of oil paints You know what? This -this is gonna be a humbling experience. I’ve already accepted defeat. So, if anything happens, I won’t be mad. Why does that look terrible? I’m sorry. I should really stop being so self-deprecating “Right up above the yellow, I just began laying that in.” This is not red. “Just ‘gonna add a little bit of that same color,” I had to do some emergency corrective work here. I’ve noticed a couple of things: these brushes, they suck. There are approximately 17,000 brush hairs on this painting, at this moment. I don’t really know how I’m gonna work with that ’cause I don’t want to just, you know, take tweezers and pluck them off individually. Also, Alizarin Crimson and Crimson are not the same thing. I’m using Crimson and it’s pretty much a Magenta. “Add a little bit more down here, too. Now they’ll go into Phthalo Blue.” w A i T ! Jesus Christ, okay. This man is like Speedy Gonzales at painting. Okay, Phthalo Blue. “Slight lavender hue. Very blue yet, very blue,” Oh. That. Um- Okay, so I’m done with the blue, I think. I feel like I’m over blending this. If I’m over blending this please tell me in the comments below. Okay, you know what? That’s as good as it’s going to get. “Just begin adding little layers. So let me show you here: we will take the – the old knife, pull the paint out very flat, and just cut across. Here, all you have to do it just rub it across the canvas,” I’ve made a cloud! Why don’t my clouds look as THIQQ as Bob’s? I need more Titanium white. Okay, then he takes a fat brush looks like: * Rocket blasting f lut ss * I’m ‘gonna leave it ’cause I don’t want to just, like, blend everything into just one big poop color. It’s kind of looking, like if all the primary colors did a line of cocaine. Yesterday I went into the comment section of this video, and I saw that someone left a hate comment. My blood was B O I L I N G. How could you hate this gem? What did Mr. Bob Ross ever do to you? Bob Ross didn’t even deserve a sneeze. And he died because of cancer. That- That in it’s self should just prove to everyone that life is extremely unfair. “Now then, let’s have a big mountain that lives – there he goes! Now let him drop down -” Wait- Bob, s t o p ! a H “Just let it blend downward. This removes excess paint,” Okay, I think I’m missing a mountain here. So I’m just ‘gonna go in real quick and, like, be mother nature, and just create another mountain out of thin air Okay, what’s next? “Where do you want it to go?” Dark Sienna, Red, some white, and Yellow Ochre. Welcome to the squad. So, now it seems that he mixes all those colors, but he doesn’t really mix it because, you just want to let things happen. You know, you want “happy accidents.” Well, this is just a series of ” h a p p y a c c i d e n t s . ” * b u r p * I’m sorry- I am making one FAT mess. For this next part, I will show you me mixing the paints as visual ASMR. I don’t know if that’s a thing, but it is now. *kazoo rendition of Careless Whisper* Y u m m y *kazoo continues* “You can come right up here, and you can just lay them all on here like that,” That looks like vomit… We’ve had our first official screw-up of the day. We are not gonna talk about that Like I know on camera it looks decent, but just wait till you got up close O K A Y Now that I’ve literally created a mountain of terror, let’s keep going. “Let’s do this. Let’s get brave today. Very dark. I want this to almost be black,” mines not black! snack brake 🙂 I’m eating! Stop! Okay, we’re fed. Let’s keep going. “All we have to do is just grab a little of that, and pull it down with it,” mhm “Straight down. Straight down. And very lightly.” Just come across. Yeah, maybe, I need a fan brush,” “Maybe there’s some little, land areas back in here. Take the old two-inch brush, and go right into Van Dyke Brown. Right in here,” * b r u s h a s m r * “Let’s have some beautiful, beautiful little bushes and trees,” * bwfbwfbwfbwf * Okay, now we need some Yellow Ocher. “You want it to get a little lighter toward the top. This is the back of the tree. We can paint ’em We have to start making some big decisions here,” W A I T !!! I’m still on my small decisions! “Where do you want you to land to go? Maybe it goes right out here, like this. Maybe over here on the other side. Maybe there’s some more over here. Same colors,” Okay. It’s like starting to look a bit better. So then he takes his highlighting brush. I mean fan brush. And then he gives us some tree trunks. *SIRENS* “I can hear what makes ’em. And I, you know me. You know me,” No, I don’t know you, Bob Ross! I wish I did! “I like these old big trees there,” You know what I’ve noticed? I have yet to beat the devil out of my paint brush… Should I scootch you guys in? I mean kind of late now, but… Is that better? Wow. Master of camera angles right here. Bob Ross makes it look so easy in his videos. I wish I was that talented ’cause this is, uh. This was hard. “We must have some nice rocks that live out here, too. We need a nice stone that lives there. Yes,” Okay, you know what? The rocks- they did not work out. So we’re just gonna skip that step… “Bright. sparkling, little bushes,” ” m m ” M M So the iconic Bob Ross bush. This is gonna be quite an adventure. ‘Kay, now that that’s looking like absolute trash, what’s the next step? “Let us in the little water line in here. Let’s take these big old trees here. Just put the indication of some bark on here,” ‘Kay, so then he makes these little twigs. So, like, the equivalent of the flyaways on JoJo’s hairline. “Really hope you’ve enjoyed this one. Think I’ll call it finished,” I’m not done! I’m gonna finish it up, off-camera and then we’ll meet again and we’ll just talk our feelings out like girls do. L e t ‘ s t a l k . So I finished the painting… Does it look like Bob Ross’s? No, but it looks okay. It did take me a very long time to finish it. I started this painting at around 2:00 pm, And it’s now 6 o’clock. For next time, I’m gonna try to use actually good brushes, and I’m also gonna try to buy better paints. I think I’m gonna end this video with a compilation of me beating the devil out of my paintbrush, for no reason. Because in the tutorial, Bob Ross didn’t beat the devil out of his paintbrush. So… what am I supposed to do now? I have five thick brushes. So, let’s just enjoy ourselves. And perform an exorcism, if you know what I mean 😉 * AGGRESSIVE BRUSH-BEATING * *cough* *MOAR BEATING SOUNDS* Okay, see you-

  1. Only student grade acrylics are thin. Professional acrylics often have to be thinned out to get a smooth painting

  2. Who is Rob Boss and what has he done to our king Bob Ross? And what has our lord and savior (other than Shrek) John Cena have to do with himmm????

  4. I was wondering why my paintings could never turn out like bob Ross’s and then I realized I wasn’t using the liquid white or liquid clear that he uses in the beginning.. I don’t have that, what can I use instead?

  5. I didn't even wait to start the video. I subscribed as soon as I read " I can't even sit on the toilet without the fear of a centipede falling straight from the ceiling and right onto my bare ass."

  6. My art theory professor let us watch videos one day and suggested we watch him. But she called him Ross Boss and he is now forever Ross Boss in my mind

  7. Hey really inspired , can you make a video on brushes knifes and canvas stand etc to use , may be online link!! You are amazing

  8. I did my first bob ross painting yesterday and I don’t even want to talk about trying to do the snow on the mountains, but the rest looks alright.

  9. I followed the same tutorial and when Rob Bos said “we are going to make our first hard decision” I said “all this was a hard decision”. and gave up

  10. This video is an insult. Goofing around while trying to paint? Just focus on painting and you'll get a great success on Bob's technique.

  11. damn she’s saying that she has never painted with oil paints and now she basically never uses acrylic paint :’)

  12. Ok this was made a long time ago and I’m watching it again but my subtitles were on and I swear on everything it said sexy music at the beginning

  13. Omg for some reason it was on subtitles for me and when it was playing the Bob Ross intro music it said sexy music and now im dieing laughing.🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
