It was late in life that I discovered the wonder that is Bob Ross. The afro haircut, the lurid, gauche and wonderful paintings that materialize seemingly so effortlessly on his canvas (pre-painted in black Jesso, of course).
The voice, that wonderful, calm, soothing voice... it's hypnotically beautiful. Nothing soothes the soul like half an hour with Bob.
It's your world, you just do what you like.
The idea of this meetup is simple. We'll meet and bring our own equipment*. We'll get a projector and vote on which painting lesson to attempt. We'll maybe bring some wine and snacks, then we'll spend a couple of hours on a rainy Sunday having a go at one of the paintings, helping each other as we go along. We'll probably end up with monstrosities... but who cares!
