The Joy of Painting books by Bob Ross are among the best I have seen. My only problem is deciding which scenes to paint--I seem to want to paint most of the ones in the books that I have purchased!
Rated by: Diana B. in Bigfork, MT
I have watched Bob Ross' "the best of the joy of painting" on PBS. I have never painted, never wanted to because I'm one of the many who have no talent. But after watching Bob, I have no doubt I can create a work of art. I wish he was still with. A great talent lost.

My sons really enjoyed watching the PBS series by this artist and another one when they were preschoolers, and could follow the instructions easily enough to produce very good work. Thank you very much.
Rated by: Virginie K. in Centerville, OH
I think that those books are really well done and they guide through the whole process of the painting. Nevertheless, I would strongly suggest to get the 3-hours workshop tape to go with the book. Indeed, the book is not an easy way to learn things such as mixing the colors, applying them... The tape and the books all together make a great tool for endless paintings.
Rated by: Joseph A. in Virginia Beach, VA
These books are well planned. The layout is simple and the instruction is good. Some preparatory instruction is a little weak, but overall, I would give these books an A-.
