9+ Beautiful Realistic Paintings

Are you a fan of Bob Ross? Are you familiar with Thomas Kinkade? If you are, then you must probably be a painter or just someone who, even without proper training, loves to paint. One thing I can always remember from watching painting shows by the late Bob Ross is that you can really see that he really enjoyed what he did. You could hear it from the way he does his paintings that it was more than just his job—painting was his life. He would constantly add more and more elements to his paintings even though it already looks finished. But in the end, his paintings looked beautiful and full of life.

For the late Thomas Kincade, on the other hand, he was known as the “painter of light.” He didn’t have his own television show, but he was famous for the special features on his work. His paintings would give out different effects depending on the amount of light exposed to it. One in every twenty American homes has his painting, with a yellow lamp in front of it.

Painting is an art of applying colors on a drawing with the use of color paints and paintbrushes. Some color paints are water based and some are oil based, which is more durable but requires paint thinner before it can be used. Unlike dry coloring materials, you can achieve different textures in painting depending on the brush strokes and the paint brush itself.

Benefits of Painting
