Comments about Bob Ross Flower Oil Painting Set:
The Bob Ross brand flower painting set is a nice little kit for people who would like to have a collection of paints and brushes that will allow painting of flowers and various plants. I would not recommend it for absolute beginners who have no experience with oil painting. The kit does not come with an instructional DVD like Bob's other kits, and the included instructions and pictures are quite vague and will likely leave beginners frustrated and disappointed. I feel that a person needs a good foundation in oil painting techniques and familiarity with an artist's tools in order to successfully make use of this kit. If you don't know how to use various brushes to achieve desired brushstrokes and textures to make things look realistic, you'll just be smearing paint around and will likely be very unhappy. This problem is also compounded by the fact that the instructions call for the use of brushes that are not included with this kit (e.g. the 2" soft blender brush and the 3/4" brush...and they don't specify whether they mean the 3/4" bright or the 3/4" round from the Bob Ross line). The kit comes with a #2 script liner brush, a #12 floral filbert, a 1/2" bright, and a 1" landscape brush. Upon first opening the kit, it appeared that a couple of brushes or a brush and palette knife were missing, but this is not the case...the manufacturer simply uses the same plastic insert between the various Bob Ross kits to hold everything in the box, so the spaces for the fan brush and palette knife are empty as they are not included in this particular kit. Overall, I am pleased with this purchase. It is a nice set for flower painting, and Blick has the best price anywhere for this particular item. As I have some background in oil painting and a rather large collection of brushes, I think I'll be able to get by without relying on the insufficient instructions that come with this kit. If you're a beginner wanting to get into flower painting, this kit will save you a bit of money over purchasing items separately, but you'll likely have to look elsewhere for instruction. I give this product 4 stars instead of 5 because I feel that it is largely marketed toward absolute beginners, and that just seems a bit dishonest to me when you consider the vague instructions and the fact that they say to use brushes that aren't included with the kit. Those with some knowledge of oil painting will be able to compensate, but it may be extremely difficult and frustrating for those who have never picked up a brush before.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
