Bob Ross Valley View Season 21 Episode 1
(bright music) Hello, I'm Bob Ross andI'd like to welcome you to the 21st Joy of Painting series. If this is your first time with us, let me extend a personal invitation for you to drag out yourlittle paint brushes and some paints and paintalong with us each show. Or just drag up the old easy chair
and enjoy a relaxing half hour as we play some of nature'smasterpieces on canvas. And for those of you'vebeen with us for a while, thank you very, verymuch for inviting us back for another series of painting shows. Tell you what, let's get right to it. Let's start today and have'em run all the colors across the screen that youneed to paint along with me.
And while they're doingthat, come on up here and let me show youwhat I've already done. Have my standard old 18 by 24 inch canvas, but you use any sizethat's convenient for you. We just use this because it sorta fitsthe television screen. The bottom of it I havecovered with a little bit of black gesso.
And you can put it on with a sponge or foam brush or just paper towel. It doesn't matter, anything to cover it and then let that dry. Then we've applied some transparent color down here on the bottom of this. And today I've used a little sap green and Van Dyke brown mixed together.
And it's still wet. The black gesso has dried but the transparent coloron top here is still wet. Okay, and then the top we've just covered with a little bit of liquid white, and it just makes the canvasnice and wet and slick and it allows us to actuallyblend color on the canvas rather than working ourselfto death on the palette.
So I tell you what, let's just take off and have some fun today. Let's start with thislittle two inch brush here and we'll go right into a small amount of the phthalo blue. And all we do is justpull a little bit out and then tap it into the bristles. By tapping, and turn thebrush over, tap both sides.
