If you like acrylic painting, or have been wanting to get into painting I highly recommend looking up acrylic painting tutorials on youtube. Below are links to a few playlists I have going for myself. Many of the tutorials require zero initial talent or experience and are appropriate for absolute beginners.
If you’re a newbie to acrylic painting I recommend starting with The Art Sherpa. She designates her paintings as 1, 2, or 3 “hoot” (one being the easiest). Each tutorial has a list of paint colors needed in the description.
I recommend getting a canvas pad instead of frame wrapped canvases unless you really want to hang the piece because then you’re working on actual canvas, but its easier to store. Mixed media pads and watercolor paper don’t really work well with acrylic paint.
My dentist sometimes shows Bob Ross with Netflix on his TV, It can get annoying after a while being stuck there but not wanting to complain. He is also in the Smithsonian now. He never sold his painting they are all in storage in a warehouse owned by his company. Evidently to do the taping he painted three copies of every painting.
Printing off about 50-75 pages to send to my Great Grand Niece who’s in kindergarten. Will use book binding glue to make it into a book. Will have her select her opus magnum to grace the time honored place of honor and prestige: refrigerator door
