WHO IS BOB ROSS? 

Bob Ross was an iconic American painter, art instructor and TV host. 

He hosted The Joys of Painting on PBS from 1983 to 1994.

Born in 1942 in Daytona Beach, Florida, the artist died in 1995 from Lymphoma.

He used the wet-on-wet oil painting technique, allowing him to complete a painting in under 30 minutes.

After his death, his popularity exploded on YouTube and he became an Internet celebrity.

The first instalment came out last week, and two more are on the way for later in the summer.
