The Best of the Joy of Painting.

The Best of the Joy of Painting

This series of episodes culled from the vast library of the late Bob Ross ("The Joy of Painting") features the soft-spoken host sharing his painting techniques, including his "wet-on-wet" technique, and creating some of his best-loved scenes. From a cabin in the majestic mountains or a covered bride to an owl in a country barn or an autumnal forest scene, Ross creates a complete work of art in each episode -- many of which feature his trademark "happy little clouds." His soothing tone and words of encouragement inspire those painting along at home, and entrance those just watching to see him create his nature scenes.
