    Why is your voice so soothing to the ears? As much as I'd like to focus on the painting, I get sleepy because of the calmness of your voice.

    Wow cool😍❤️

  3. Cazz_ says

    Awesome! Fantastic work Ryan! I'm hoping to see a 10 minute for something sea side or underwater in one of your videos because I can never do one in those themes quick and it would be cool to see one that can be done in that time. 😀 Thank you for the video!

  4. Elaine Carey says

    Awesome. I'm very new to this, but you make it look so easy. I'm about to go try this one now

  5. Pam Kiser says

    this is beautiful, and you make it look so easy. I'm going to try this one today. it looks like a scene that my brother would maybe see from his window in Washington state.

  6. Miniravi R. says

    This looks like a summer version of your autumn forest landscape and I like it a lot. Keep up the good work 🙂

  7. sylvia smith says

    Beautiful,thank you

  8. Paula H. says

    Ryan, this is only the second week I have seen your tutorials and you make me feel like I can attempt this. It appears your canvases are quite small. I have acquired a canvas that I want to reuse but it is a little larger than what you are using. Do I just up the size of the brushes?

  9. Amanda Fitz says

    Hey Ryan! Another beautiful painting! ^.^ I was wondering if you could teach us how to paint a tall waterfall?

  10. nrkssharps says

    I remember painting one portrait like this in the winter with snow in it. AWESOME, TOTALLY AWESOME…

  11. Mariela Cardenas says

  13. Maribel Oriola says

    hacin en 10 minuto es facil de aprender ,,esta muy bien.

  14. Debby Huddleston says

    Another great job and beautiful painting, Ryan. Thank you, again. 🙂 I'm going to give this one a try. I did your Cherry Blossom painting back in February; not the one just a week or 2 ago; which I also love very much. I was tempted to do your Cherry Blossom Field because I love the cherry blossoms so very much. But I'm going to try this one first. This looks fun.

  15. Lucie Davies says

    I worked on doing this painting earlier on today and now finished, it's gone really well for me and I'd like to share photos of my work with you.

    Hi Ryan. I just purchased your book on etsy. Seriously my mind is blown and I'm only on page 10. It seems like I should have learned these things at some point but I hadn't until your book. I will never look at the Mona Lisa, or any other painting the same. Thank you so much for your efforts.

  17. David Timms says

    Very helpful . I'll try this one today

  18. ForCryinOutLoud O'Neill says

    Gorgeous work as always! My first attempt at one of your 10 minute paintings was a bit of a disaster lol, the second attempt at least looked similar to the next painting I attempted, and the third one turned out amazingly well – I've gotten so many compliments and I tell everyone that it's because of your tutorials I managed to create it. Thank you so much for these tutorials! They not only offer beautiful art to look at, awesome techniques, but also inspire the confidence that anyone can paint (granted, to varying degrees of success haha) if you just keep on practising.

    I'm wondering about your paints though – you use primary colors for all of the paintings I've watched so far, but the set of liquitex paints that I bought don't come with primary colors, but rather ultramarine, cerulean etc. Can you give names of colors that would be closest to the primary ones you use for those of us that don't have the primary colors?

  19. Bernadette Poncet says

    Bravo Ryan

  20. Shavauna Ronan says

    Hi Ryan, that is exciting you are going to have hour long classes. Will you be showing us how to do the drawing first? Thanks Ryan.

  21. MarioIsLife says

    I don't paint, I don't draw I don't do anything of the sorts, I litteraly am a gaming channel haha, but for some odd reason I just love watching your videos its just so calming and entertaining watching you create some amazing art. awesome channel

  22. hajar el hage says

  23. Joan Mac says

    I love your 10 minute videos! of course it takes me a couple hours to complete these paintings, but I'm learning so much. keep it up Ryan!

    I am totally new to acrylics and love your Acrylics in 10 minutes series. These tutorials are so great for beginners because of the short period of time and limited palette, that makes painting less intimidating and encourages me to practice more often.

  27. Lori Troupe says

    You feel free to waist a little more of my time anytime, I really enjoy the added details… My family were all asking me to paint a waterfall, you must have heard me out here yesterday looking for the perfect waterfall pic. Thank you…
