Bob Ross - The Joy of Painting is an American television series from 1983. The program focuses on show host Bob Ross and serves to educate the audience on painting techniques. Every episode of the program begins with Ross in front of a blank canvas and concludes with a complete landscape. Over the course of the episode, Ross teaches the audience how to paint with oils, applying one layer of paint over another that is still in the process of drying. In addition to teaching the audience about oils, Ross also explains the proper role of knives and different types of brushes in the art of painting. In an effort to break up the monotony of watching a man teach painting, Ross would occasionally break into storytelling about the day's project or share stories of his life. The entire run of Bob Ross - The Joy of Painting consists of 403 half-hour-length episodes across 31 seasons. The program is available in English or subtitles for Spanish-fluent viewers. Other than the titular host, The Joy of Painting would occasionally feature Ross' longtime friend and collaborator, Dana Jester, or his son Steven.
