I decided to follow a Bob Ross tutorial digitally today on stream. But to give myself more of a challenge, I was only allowed to use “weird” brushes. So, not your typical flat brush, oil paint, or line brushes. I had to use the artistic ones. Those that have weird textures or designs. This also went for any smudging or blending that I had to do. In addition, to keep with the traditional style art I could only use one layer. The tutorial I ended up following was Tropical Seascape from Season 12 Episode 9 of The Joy of Painting.
Typically, whenever I follow a Bob Ross tutorial I’m using acrylic paint and a canvas so the end result is pretty similar with minor changes where I went off-script. But doing this digitally especially with the artistic brushes was a bit of a challenge to get a fairly close end product. I think my trees and sky turned out the best. But the waves/ocean weren’t very close. Though I don’t hate the end result.
