The Basic Bob Ross Oil Colors

When Bob learned the wet-on-wet painting style from Bill Alexander, Bill was only using 8 colors. So Bob originally went around the country teaching painting with 8 colors. These are those original colors and they are included in the Master Paint Set. On the TV show Bob will often use extra colors (listed below) but you don't really need them to do his wet-on-wet painting style.


The following colors are not included in the master kit and are not required to get started but they are great to have. If you are painting along with a Bob Ross video, he will probably use some of these colors.

You can buy your paints by going to the 'Landscape Oil Painting' tab on this website.
