Great likeness! I have to wonder if his pet squirrel lived in that hair of his! I used to watch his show sometimes, long time ago, and he seemed like a therapist, speaking softly, slowly... I swear, he could have hypnotized people that way (maybe that's how he lured in the squirrel).
...hahaha, he used to knock the 'Devil' out of those large brushes. It was a family show after all and the only 'blue' went onto the canvas.
Great piece Dave and a bold move making him live right there...
All the best.
I loved Bob Ross when I was a kid! I would watch him everyday after school and I even bought a shit load of oil paints and canvases to learn to paint like him. The level of detail in your paintings is amazing. Excellent work!
