    You've really inspired me to do more smaller paintings with a limited palette, and I have to say it's a lot harder than I imagined but fun all the same. I can't manage something like this in 10 minutes, but I'm going to get there! Thanks for these videos Ryan, they're so helpful.

  12. Silvano Cece says

    Top effort βœοΈπŸ‘Œ

    I have recommended your videos to my art class; they are learning acrylics, and I think your videos can be very helpful. You explain yourself well and it is easy to see how to do what you are talking about.Β  πŸ™‚

  17. Kallemon Banchichioya says

    I like that it's very inspired by Bob Ross, but you're not trying to be him, you're doing it your own natural way. It doesn't feel forced. Good job!

  18. nrkssharps says

    You're such an awesome person and instructor, you have no idea how many people you inspire in this world. You are a blessing. Happy Earth Day. Your paintings make me feel that I can do just a little bit more to finish, and you ALWAYS. ALWAYS, end your tutorials with STAY CREATIVE!! That inspires me. Thank you very much!!!

  19. Robyn Lane says

    You make that fog look so easy!

  20. Mammiesloves Galbreath says

    You made that look so simple!. Beautiful!

  21. Lyndsey Knipe says

    Absolutely stunning! But what if we do not have an "old square brush" for the background gradient/trees? I only have new brushes 😬

  22. Tara Marion says

    When you did the clouds, did you use water, glaze or just a really soft touch to make it look ethereal?

  23. Lakshmi D says

    Hi Ryan, your videos are so useful…. thank you. can you also show some flower paintings? and you description is just right. not too much not too less….

  24. Chaca Amel says

    sorry, did you add a water?

  25. Seraphina Mathias says

    can we recreate these with a bigger canvas or does it work best to use a small canvas?

  26. Darlene Weir says



    Beautiful as ever Ryan πŸ™‚ I have sourced some budget canvas's to mess up !! excited to say the least!
