Painting: Watercolor on Paper.
Medium: Watercolor and graphite pencil on heavy watercolor paper
This was one of the initial concepts of a post-mortem Bob Ross, the late famous American television how-to painter. He primarily worked with oils rendering imagined landscapes with a wet-on-wet oils and palette knife techniques. Though his work is most often considered as kitsch, he had embedded himself within pop culture with his anecdotal narratives whilst he painted during his television show. He was fond of his “lonely old trees” and “happy little clouds” that he imbued into his works. I eventually settled on the straight-on frontal view for the final artwork.
The world that Bob left has only gotten worse. Being the eternal nature-loving optimist that he was, what do you believe Bob would have thought about the undersea oil geyser in the Gulf currently spoiling the ocean for many years to come? Whereas Bob saw the planet Earth as the life-giving orb that it once was, I forsee a Venus in the making.
