    Thank you for this video. I appreciate your demonstration & explanation of "layering" to gain perspective in a painting. Helpful skills to transplant into other paintings.

  18. Timothy McDougald says

    Have you ever thought of doing a meet up or teach a class?

  19. linda meanbean says

    you are the best thank you so much i actually completed a couple 10 min painting because of you im am so thrilled …was wondering can you do like 15 min ones after a while .. im just a happy camper !!!:)

  20. Alekya Attanti says

    I noticed that you prefer to use square headed brushes for fine lines and edges rather than small and thinner brushes. Should I bother investing in small liner/fine brushes? A more artistic friend of mine freaked when I was using a square headed brush for side to side brush strokes ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

  21. Maya Bonik says

    sir I tried it.you are my inspiration. thank you.

  22. linda meanbean says

    cant wait to do this one i have spent months and months watching youtube painting videos and ive spent enough money on supplies for at least 3 people …and when i would start a painting i would never finish it bc it just either didnt look right to me or i just didnt know how to correct it . but at same time i learned so much throughout the months that i watched . so what i would like to say to everyone who thinks that thier drawing isnt good enough to trust me on this … is sketch out whatever the picture may be and just lay out your colors get your brushes and start painting and finish it even if u dont like it ..i have wasted many many canvases for fear it wasnt good enough .the more you paint the better the next one will cone out and compare your paintings to each other and you will see how much you have grown in your paintings ..wow im just started to frame them for me it feels good to see them hanging up !

    Would it be possible to put the main mixes to have on hand for us to paint along in the description also, like listing all the paints, then something like: "sky- mostly white, tiny bit blue, tiny tiny tiny bit black; mountain- mostly white, small amount blue, tiny tiny amount red, tiny tiny tiny amount black;background foliage- mostly white, bit o' blue, tad of yellow, bitty bit of burnt number…" etc.Thank you very much for doing this 10 Minute channel- I have learned so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. nrkssharps says

    I use wet bottled acrylic paint and I get different consistent coloring as you do what can I do to use less paint or do I go to the tubed acrylic paint?
