Bob Ross: Painting Ocean Waves (Pt 3/19 How To Paint Water Series)

Intermediate, Oils, Painting | 06 Sep, 2012

Bob Ross uses the paint brush to put basic movement in his seascape. He paints a horizon line as well as a beach line and then simply makes a ‘z’ shape using the brush within the two likes to capture the desired amounts of movement from the waves. A frequently asked question over the years for Ross was ‘Why is my water so flat looking?’, so this episode offers a resolution for this question. See what you think.

    1. @Jesusworshipper4eva My first thought is to put less paint on the -palette. But generally the reason one uses too much paint is by not knowing how to load the brushes properly. For example, a fan brush really paints on the tips of the hairs. Yet I’ve seen way too many students cake the paint onto the brush all the way to the metal ferrule. So pay close attention to how I load the brush and that will help you control the amount of paint you’re using.

    7. @AnimalCrossingsACCF In this exercise I used Titanium White (TW) & Prussian Blue (PB). Cover canvas was first black gesso and let dry. Adde a thin coat of oil painting medium over the canvas. I then LIGHTLY wiped the medium with a paper towel. Covered the canvas with Prussian Blue. With a mix of PB and TW using a fan brush I painted this wave and the water. The brand name doesn’t matter. I buy my paints either from an on-line distributor or a local art shop.

    10. @Jesusworshipper4eva Once you load the brush just sort of wipe a bit off on your pallet. If you want to get effects like this, very whispy and such, just make sure you have paint on the brush and make very LIGHT strokes. I had trouble with that when i started painting, just remember that loading the brush doesnt mean it has to have tons of paint, just enough to leave a mark. Gesso watercolor paper and experiment on that, it’s easy and cheaper than a canvas and I always use it for trying stuff on

    13. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really something that I feel I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely wide for me. I’m looking ahead for your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the hold of it!
