    Really love this one! Glad you are feeling better. ๐Ÿ˜Š I do have a question for you. Do you use gesso? Could you explain the pros and cons of using gesso? I'm confused about it and can't seem to find answers. Thanks so much for your videos. I love them!

  11. Leesa McClure says

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. Sometimes I panic when I make a mistake!!!
    Do you ever start a painting and become bored or uninspired during it and put it away? I have 3 on the back burner that I can't seem to finish.
    Great painting. Thanks for these videos. Take care! Happy Painting โ™ก

    Ryan, I love your teaching and have some questions I would like to ask you. How can I contact you? I tried FB but haven't gotten a response.
    Thank you,
    Pat Norman

  18. Mei-Lyn K says

    Love the videos, they are great inspiration. Do you think you'll ever include a peak of your palette? Clearly many of your colors are mixed beforehand and I'd just like to know how you arrange it to prevent them muddling together or drying out.

  19. Michelle OConnell says

    Thank you Ryan. You make painting fun. I love your techniques and I am proud to say my art is improving thanks to your videos.

  20. Alekya Attanti says

    I love this channel ๐Ÿ˜Œ Thank you so much Ryan!!

  21. Karla Heald says

    Amazing painting! I had a quick question: What do you use to do the rough sketch on the canvas? I always try to use very light pencil, but it still manages to show through the paint. :/

  22. Jean Linsley says

    fabulous painting.. I must try it… you are very descriptive which helps so much.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Birgitta Kruse says

    I really apreciate your 10 minutes Acrylics. Iยดm getting a lot faster with it and they inspire me to do others. Can you do a picture like you did above with more details in the foregroud, like grass or a path. This is always my problem and I mess up always with the foreground. I see in your pictures the same that you jump right away in the Lake and there is not much in the foreground, except a big tree. Do you have other solutions, how to create another or other quick foregrounds. Anyway thanks a lot for your inspirations and good explications. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Raja Sekaran says
