I remember growing up and being fascinated watching Bob Ross paint. Each 1 hour episode was intriguing, and seemed so simplistic in the methods and art of painting. Since I am just learning a new hobby, I thought, "What better way to learn to paint?". I was not wrong. These instructional DVD's show you lots of tips and tricks to learning how to master the art of painting.

Highly recommend this series of DVD's as well as any other Bob Ross set you can get your hands on.

The title of this product is misleading. "The Joy of Painting Series" is not hours and hours of Bob Ross episodes; this is only 9 instructional episodes for an exorbitant price. I'd like the whole SERIES of the show; not a select collection.

This DVD set is not actually the Joy of Painting series. It is a set of instructional videos. The actual series is a different item, not to mention MUCH longer. HEADS UP.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series, "the BoB" is just delightful! I have never had any formal art lessons and wanted to learn some basic techniques so I ordered the series. Bob Ross's kind, persistant teaching method (and the rewind function) walked me through the basics in a very clear and enjoyable manner. At the end of the day I had a lovely painting to encourage more efforts. It was great! I would highly recommend this series. My sister, Mom and I did two paintings together.
We had a blast and hung our paintings on the wall when all was done. Since then I have purchased more Bob Ross DVDs as gifts. So far everyone loves him and there are several more fledgling painters enjoying their new passion! Thanks, Bob!

Nine one hour episodes, created as instructional painting guides, with a half-hour episode from the Joy of Painting series. Wonderfully detailed and complete, its price tag may seem a tad high. But please note educational material is always going to cost twice or more than material for entertainment. For the price I could have gotten three brand new 25 episode anime sets. Or four used ones. Or six short, semi-new, 13 episode, anime sets. Or 10 happy meals. And the price will likely only go up.
But it is a must for those of you who wish to learn how to paint or are fans of the great, late Bob Ross. Each episode is a self-contained class, in which he explains what materials are needed, how to set up your work space, tools, use of the brushes and how to set up the canvas. THEN he gets into color, light, shape, background, and so-on. He is a wonderful teacher as long as his calm voice does not put you to sleep.
A star was removed only for the price which, as I said, is pretty high. Maybe a tad too high.

This DVD set taught me many of the basics of oil painting in the wet on wet style. I would recommend this set to anyone interested in oil painting in this style.

I love Bob Ross paintings; so I was very happy to see them. BUT, I received a case that was broken in the lower back part and the front cover plastic and paper had a small slit in it. Plus, it was not sealed like they do in the stores, so I am not sure if it is a used product. I know it isn't suppose to be; it is suppose to be brand new and factory sealed. I have contacted the seller through Amazon and will let you know how I make out. These DVD's are good so I plan on keeping them.

This is strictly for those who enjoy painting in the Bob Ross big brish style. The hour long episodes are similar in concept to the half-hour TV episodes, but their length permits a more detailed coverage of technique and design. I learn far more from these DVDs than from the Ross books.
