    you should do an Bob Ross impression for an episode

  4. Patricia Norman says

    I like the Cherry blossom idea. This time of year it would be great. Thank you, Ryan, for the beautiful paintings you do and the instructions you give for us beginners.

  5. disc33 says

    Such a beautiful painting with the easiest instructions as always. Your work is a joy to wake up to, Ryan. As for the pink, maybe some trees that have pink blossoms? Or a field of flowers ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Teri Blair says

    Fantastic! Amazing how you make this look so easy!

  7. doug bouffard says

    That is stunningly beautiful.

  8. Dr Shahoo says

    I draw sketches but I am really bad when it comes to colors and paints. Any advice on how to get started on budget?

  9. Maureen Cronin says

    You are awesome!!!

  10. nrkssharps says

    I would love to see Japanese cherry blossoms over a pond, or pink bells in a field. Whatever you decide, you always have great awesome, and easy instructions to instruct your students that can't wait for each Saturday to come around, just to see what new masterpiece you're going to do next. FYI I do consider myself a student of yours:).

  11. ef_fective Sanchez says

    I never noticed it was weird until you said so. Your voice is very calm and soothing which is very opposite to what you look like. You are buff and so manly. That's cool, though. Anyway, I really love this painitng. I like paintings which sunset colors are predominant. This reminds me of your African sunset painting you made weeks ago. Way to go!

  12. Caleb Jordan says

    So talented

  13. maria Pellegrino says

    Fantastic once again !! Perfect timing also as I am about to attempt a sunset at the last stage going into night and wasn't sure how to go about getting a light glow as I need it almost white. I am paint my friends reference photo. I would love to send it to you but as she is a professional photographer I would have to get her permission to.
    Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Tehmas Zohra says

    You are genius. beautifully done . Thanks for sharing.

  20. Rinstinkt says

    Very nice. The first time I tried to do something similar to this but lacking the basic knowledge about bushes and color mixing the painting looked like it was made by a kid.

    Then I tried to just copy some portrait paintings from other painters and then I started to learn how to use colors and brushes.

  21. Dorothy Radley says

    Great 10 minute painting, actually only 9 minutes this week, lol. I love it and am going to try it on a little bigger canvas. Thank you for the tutorial. xx

  22. Kristina Veegan says

    Really beautiful Ryan, I can't wait to try this one!

  23. mooshibe says

    It's amazing how you make it seems easy and as a beginner I feel like painting right away. Your calm explanations are very useful to me, especialy because english it is not my mother language. Thank you so much.

  24. Jodi Ceason says

    Ryan O'Rourke – Artist, I love your 10 minute paintings. I follow along and attempt one each week. I feel like I am learning a lot. Have you thought of doing a desert scene? Also, I have a strange request, have you thought of doing one with the canvas turned the other way? (portrait instead of landscape). I like to put my finished works on shelves and could use one standing the tall way. ๐Ÿ™‚ just a silly thought. Thank you again for sharing your talent and helping us learn!
