He said that he decided to film it to "add pressure" to the situation and revealed his masterpiece at the end.

He said, "I had an idea for what I wanted it to look like. But that completely went out the window."

"I rolled with it and yet ended up looking pretty nice," he added.

One shocked fan commented on the YouTube video, "'New to it' as in he’s been doing it for at least 50 years, right?"

Another added, "Who knew someone could be so good at literally everything? Seriously, is there anything he can't do?"

Others were shocked that he was able to do the painting free hand without a tutorial to watch.

"I'm amazed that he did this from memory. Robert is an impressive kid. Big things in his future for sure," one user wrote.

Someone else said, "[Alright] I'm convinced that he's not a human but instead some kind of perfect angel."

Robert recently allowed fans to buy some of his work when he sold prints of a photograph he had taken of a big tusker elephant with all profits going to wildlife conservation to protect the animals in the wild.

The prints sold out within hours with fans stunned by the beautiful image.

One fan commented, "That is amazing Robert. The animals owe you and your family many thanks! Your dad would be so proud!"

Another added, "Stunning... I have two of your elephant photos already, think I’ll have to add this to my collection!"

Someone else wrote, "I’m in love with this. Thank you so much for all you do. A true Legend."
