Mountain Lake Painting from Bob Ross Painting Class

Date: January 2003.

My first painting (other than paint-by-number sets when I was a kid)!

I took a Bob Ross "Joy of Painting" class at Michaels Craft Store - it was fun!

I had fun playing with the paints and learning what strokes the different brushes can do. The names of the paints are much more fancy than Blue, Red, and Green. Apparently the Bob Ross-type paints are specially-formulated oil paints that allow the painter to paint on top of wet paint so there isn't a need to wait for an underlying color to dry before painting on top of it.

Everyone in the class did the same painting, but each person created the painting in their own style. One woman in the class used thick strokes of paint. I was being careful not to use too much paint since I was very new to the whole thing.
