Tom H : 2:27 beats the devil out of it

Ahturos : Bob Ross is in the same room as this guy. It´s funny to see who inspired who and go back in time to see the source of influence and inspiration.

Mark Curtis : Read Bill Alexander’s Biography and you’ll gain insight to him. He shares his technique with Bob, Annette, Andrea and several others (I’m lucky to have been certified by Bill as well). I met Bob at a trade show in D.C. and he was as nice (and talk) and talented as you see in the screen. He and Annette (and their spouses build the Bob Ross company one workshop and demo at a time. I was lucky to join the Ross instructor ranks by invitation. Both of these men brought art into an average household sharing their techniques and knowledge. I hope y’all pick up a brush and make some happy trees with the magic of painting.

Kane Alson : We are discovering where Bob Ross got his mojo from. However Bob Ross's mojo was much more mellow. Alexander is intense and hyper happy. For years I remember the "happy trees" guy, knew it wasn't Ross only and remember him being older, German, excitable and funny. I could not figure out where this guy went or what his name was. Watched the Bob Ross documentary and it's Alexander here!

David P : Thank you for posting this. I learned how to paint from William. Not too many people these days remember him, only Bob Ross.

King K Rool Fan : Its nice to see where Bob’s influence came from! Both of them are fantastic painters! Bob was more mellow while Bill was very enthusiastic.

Bango Bang : Lamo @ Then I build chiminey so he make ham and eggs but He was a drunk and died lol lol

goldslinger : Yea, He’s as mellow a German will ever get to Bob Ross. I really do like Bill’s style, though.

stew360 : We know where bob ross took the happy tree happy this and that it came from alexander influence

fdjd28 : "Fire it in!" I love that.

Steve Burdelak : I tank you for washing me...great accent

stancexpunks : Why is everything almighty? Also Bob talks about and credits bill during the first 2 seasons of his show (that I know of)

goldslinger : The intro music reminds me of a 60s roller skating rink.

Dalton NATASHO : William alexander -Bob rosses inspiration Bob ross - inspiration for Kevin hill

Joey Bee : hilarious! great guy! love his outburst....so funny :)

Mark Weeks : ROFL! Bill was in a mood that day!

bulldog81ful : He was FIRING IN!!!! this episode!!

Daisy Mason : I like Bill's color choices.

snellavision : "I told you he's dead" LOL

450/400 Man : THANK YOU! I love bill! The original copies of these were recorded over by the studio, so people's home copies are all that's left. Cherish these!

Denny Zockt : Still watching in 2k18

Kelleydon Patterson : Admire both men, have been watching them for decades. Their work, brings me happiness.

myradioon : Everyone goes on and on about Bob Ross. Bill invented this whole school of painting. Alexander taught Bob Ross everything. Bill Alexander is the true Sensei. The true Yoda. Bill made the world which Bob Ross merely lived in. I think he's better to watch. "Fire it in there" Bill.

Jeff F : Remember though that he had less than 30 minutes to create these paintings plus make the show entertaining. Given those constraints I think his creations from the show are very good.

Roger Barraud : "When I painted that, the clouds are already on the other side... on China!" ROFLMAO :-)

daniel ruggiero : “Magic’s” Theme song sounds reminiscent of certain old-school Nintendo games

hellomcflyy : I don't feel like Ross copied him - as he was an instructor for Bill...traveling around (much like the Bob Ross instructors who still do this today) - so he learned the same techniques....though he was painting mountains in Alaska before that...) - it was more like a franchise - but in this case . the franchisee was a bit of a better tv personality - Bill is fun -but people love Bob's voice.....now on the business end - with their competing sales products - I could see a bit of friction there.....Ive seen Bob Ross products in the craft store...not Bill Alexander products....

Andrew Miller : This guy is a great painter but he comes off as a nut job. I can watch him paint but thank goodness I can turn the audio off.

pisica vesela : Awesome, we laughed our heads off. 😂

Jade Zee : The paintings Bill creates during the show are no where as fine as the finished ones used to show what he is painting. Those finished paintings are really a fine quality that show his talent.

Ash Ash : I'm starting to love this man😍.

Roger Barraud : "Almighty Illusions" Could there *be* a better description? :-)

DMC Grant : They are both dead now, and have have patched up their differences up in those happy clouds.

Alistaire Mordyn : If Bob is ASMR, then William is whatever the exact opposite is. Kinda like how Bob talked about dark and light needing each other.

afraidteenfury : He's good but bob's show is more soothing

Ducks & Elephants : this is "Pumping Iron" for arty farty people...

Ash Ash : he is amazing.😆

zofoblues : FIRE IN !!!! Love Him

The Kraemer : I look at Bob and Bill like Superstar Billy Graham and Hulk Hogan. Teacher and pupil that mimicked the other. Bob appealed to more people because of his charm and quiet demeanor. Bill was a loud kraut like me and I liked him as well as Bob. But as far as technique neither can claim ownership. Wet on wet has been around for centuries and using tools other than brushes wasn't new. Business and money divided them which was too bad. Both had their strengths and will always be remembered for that.

Michelle Richee : Anointed to paint. What a gift he had. His lessons live on! Thanks, Todd.

Dan M : I only watched 2 videos of him and been watching God Ross in the past for a while. But the first difference I observed in the first video I watched of him was that he was focussed on teaching much more then Bob Ross. Bob Ross had an element of surprise to it, Will not so much as he whould tell you what he is making before he was going to make it, unlike Bob Ross, witch was very relaxing to watch indeed, but you won't learn alot if you wanted him. Anyway that's what I think. And I'm not an artist btw. Only judging from outside.

swmient : Fabulous. What a talent, and what a personality.

stew360 : The bobrossausorus the primal ancestor of bob

Jacob Banerjee : This man manages to sound angry the whole time while telling you to love yourself and be happy

OfficialCQZ : 2:27 You have just beaten the devil out of it.

painteroflove911 : I love all three. Bill Alexander Bob Ross and Kevin Hills. Btw Kevin is more refine and detail in everything he paint. The technique is been perfecting. Thank to all this guys, my respect.🧐

異常S L i M : i thank you for watch me , BAY BAY , hes so fast :DDDDD

4stringz : If you ever get the chance, look up Patton Oswald’s take on Alexander vs Ross

Roger Barraud : "...I got hell from people ... letters from people: 'You must have a dirty home!!1!'" ROFL :-)
