    Which brand of acrylic are you using? I ask because you seem to spread the paint so easily! Good video and smooth presentation. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I don't only like your work and lessons, but Love your teaching skills as well. Keep doing what you are showing us. Also, do you do watercolor. I am interested in that and hope you can apply you teaching to those of us who would like to work with that medium. Thanks B

    I love the way you give the angry sea feeling. It's funny that I just tried to do that last evening with a fair result but of course yours is much better. Thanks for showing the best techniques for this. Also, I really appreciate the notes you put on the screen to give us a better understanding of how and what you were doing. You're the best!

    I like how you explain what you are doing while you are doing it, and what colours you are using (especially that "proportions" diagram you gave at the beginning to show your "recipe" for the teal of the water). Thanks for making and posting this video, Ryan! Beautiful picture I'd be proud to display anywhere.

    Hey Ryan,
    I checked on some of your paintings and would like to talk to you about an idea I had.
    Can you provide me with your contact details (e-Mail)?

  29. Patricia Norman says

    Ryan, do you always use small brushes? Are you able to define your paintings better this way?
    Thank you

  30. Patricia Norman says

    Thanks for replying, Ryan. I have trouble with detail and I feel I may just be trying to get my paintings done too fast by using larger brushes.
    Thanks again.

  31. Joanne Carroll says

    New subscriber. Thank you, I learned a lot today.

  32. Christopher Huff says
