Doris Pennington (Doris P) just started teaching the Bob Ross “wet on wet” technique of oil painting. She lives in Maywood, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Doris is a Registered Nurse, but has always had a passion for drawing, painting and creating wonderful works of art.

Doris specializes in florals, wildlife, and landscapes. She also enjoys working with other mediums of art such as  watercolors, acrylics and other styles like Chinese brush painting, and portraits. She also makes lovely 3D greeting cards for all ocassions.

Doris P is a certified CRFI Bob Ross instructor. She loves teaching and encouraging her students to paint even when they express lack of ¬†confidence due to lack of experience. She has traveled on request to Australia to teach oil painting. Her students were extremely proud (and happily shocked) of the masterpieces they painted. Students like Doris’ s patient and easy going teaching style. She has also been invited to teach seniors at the senior club in Maywood Village.

Doris originally trained under Helmut Rosenberg, a fellow Bob Ross certified instructor and is currently pursuing further certifications with Bob Ross and Valerie Stewart training programs.
