  1. Hey! Happy Saturday! I hope you're doing well! In today's video I wanted to talk about how to get excited about painting again when you feel like you're bored with your style or the paint you're using. This exercise was so helpful and refreshing and I hope this will help you as well!

  2. Hey makoccino! I love your channel sooo much! I myself am trying to improve my painting skills and reach 1000 subs by end of 2020. (To everyone reading this comment pls chk our my channel) thank you for being an inspiration makoccino!

  3. What a nice and fresh idea.
    I love how you also combined cold green with warm reds – that was bold and brave and beautiful.
    Thank you for your art and your inspiration.
    You are one of the two youtube artists who encouraged me to dive back into art again after many many years of having given up on it.

  4. Wow I love this art, I had to paint Van Gogh's Starry Night and I watched your video and it came out way better than I thought I really like your tutorials.

  5. I generally enjoy doing pastels, graphite and charcoal. I would love to check out water color and acrylic more. I love your videos because they are encouraging, simple and doable. Thank you

  6. Mako! What a coincidence! I was thinking of doing this just this morning! And in the night, I see this video!
    Loved your take on it;)

  7. I love your paintings and drawings so so much. They are so beautiful and creative. You are so beautiful, talented and sweet. I wish I was as talented as you. I struggle a lot with art and how to make a good drawing or painting. I also have no ideas . Do you have any advice on how I can get back to art ? Love you so much. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible and creative paintings and drawings with us . โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜

  8. This is such a great idea! How many of us have bought tones of different art medium and have barely touched & tried creating art with those? We do tend to gravitate towards our โ€œfavoriteโ€ or โ€œfamiliarโ€ medium… I can appreciate creating the same art with different medium. Good idea Mako! Thank you for using your life experience and sharing your tips & discoveries with us! Much love from Canada! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธโค๏ธ

  9. So very true..the excitement of using something new, new supplies, colours, methods…so much fun in our art and junk journal spreads. I just played with some acrylic paint, creating a really easy rose and wow what it can do compared with watercolour…I am excited to play ๐Ÿ˜ And it's all about having fun in the process…for me anyway. Hugs, joie ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒฟ

  10. Thanks for the continued encouragement to experiment and try new techniques. This was a great tutorial. ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ˜Š

  11. Love this idea! I have generally been most comfortable with pencil sketches, but am just getting back into painting with both acrylics and watercolors. This would be z super fun idea to try!

  12. This is a great bit of inspiration. I just came back to art last year after a very long break. I started off with watercolour but after a few months gravitated more towards coloured pencils. I haven't even looked at my paints for months but I've been thinking of taking them out again and maybe even combining the two mediums. Think I'll actually go do it right now after watching this ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I'm that type of artist that uses a lot of media. And those are oils, watercolor, colored pencils, graphite, charcoal and ink. I used to paint with acrylic but when I discovered oils I straight up left them and never touched the again… Kinda feel bad for them๐Ÿ˜‚

  14. I usually use watercolour because now that i have ur cheatsheet it makes things so much easier knowing how to blend and what colour will come by mixing!~

  15. Hi Mako! This video is really helpful for what I'm currently doing at school for my Art GCSE. We are in the process of creating our piece to finish our first project which is the London Skyline. We are experimenting with different mediums for the foreground and background of our final image, refining and changing things as we go along until we get a final idea of what our main piece is going to look like. After getting a clear idea of what the main piece is going to look like, we are going to make a mini version of it. This will be the last chance we get to refine and change anything we do or don't want to add to our final piece. Once you're satisfied with the mini version we are going to start translating it to the main piece. This video has given me an idea of what I can add and change to my current idea that I have for my end product. Especially with the usage of oil pastels, I've now learnt how to properly blend it together and making it not like patches of colours everywhere. As always Love you Mako!๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

  16. Hello mako!
    I love your art. Youโ€™re really talented๐Ÿฅฐ your tutorials and lessons are really helpful Iโ€™m trying to draw landscapes and use paints more and you really helped me. Sending lots of love from Georgia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช

  17. I found this fascinating and what a wonderful way to force yourself to get out of a comfort/discomfort zone. Great video Mako, thanks for posting ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ

  18. Great inspiration. I paint mostly with acrylic(gouache), I use these as I started my painting life learning 'folk art' style painting. I have done some pastel work (not oil), and have what I need to do water colour, just haven't started yet

  19. Hello Mako. Wonderful video. I love using different mediums. My first and.most beloved is water colour. Second one in my favourite list are the oil pastels by sennelier, which are creamy like a lipstick. Third is acrylic and fourth Prismacolor pencils. I also use charcoal and graphite. I tried to use gouache once but didn't like the result. I think I should try this medium again. I have a cheap brand of gouache by gioto, and maybe this is the reason it didn't help me to paint properly. May I ask you please which brand of oil pastels you use in this video. Are they soft and easy to work with?

  20. absolutly right.. i am totally agree.. some good art supplies look so beautiful that we always get excited to use them.

  21. Wow! Your paintings are so good!
    Its beautiful,seriously! Nowadays i am obsessed with watercolors. I am practising to paint with watercolors gradually and ur vids are helping alot!
    Thanks!โค

  22. Great video as usual mako! And this advice was actually quite useful. I've been drawing mainly with pens and ink for some time now, I should try painting more and using my coloured pencils

  23. Hi dear! When I say people that I want to become an artist people say me that art can never have a good career and I really get frustrated and irritated. What should I do in such situations?
