10 seasons of ‘The Joy of Painting’ on YouTube

Mental Floss:

We all need happy little trees in our lives sometimes—and Bob Ross’s official YouTube channel has got them! The first 10 seasons of Ross’s beloved series, The Joy of Painting, are now available to stream for free. That’s nearly 150 episodes of the iconic artist calmly painting happy little landscapes and teaching us all about “wet-on-wet” oil painting techniques and how to take care of our painting supplies and canvases.

Do not start watching these videos unless you have a lot of free time. Ross’ voice is so gentle and soothing, you’ll either fall asleep or be hypnotized and end up watching 10 hours non-stop.
