  1. Thank you so much for all the fun and easy beginning instructional videos. I love them ๐Ÿ™‚ I have never taken any classes but learned how to paint only by watching your video. It is so fun to be creative and find the artistic side of me. Thank you again <3

  2. Hi Cinnamon. First of all I want to say, "You are ABSOLUTELY FANTABULOUS! I just found your channel and I love your work as well as your fantastic personality. I would give absolutely (well, almost anything) to be as free spirited as you! I have always admired people who are who they are! In the two days I have been watching you, I have painted two paintings under your direction. An artist I am not, but I absolutely LOVE to pretend I am one by painting. Thank you for the inspiration!

  3. I love this
    Your voice is so soothing and the background music so relaxing
    This intro to your video makes me want to stay till the end and learn as much as I can
    Thank you!!
    Itโ€™s beautiful!
    Canโ€™t wait to try it!

  4. Thank you Sherpa I love the painting. I'm just really beginning to paint. I painted a lighthouse on a bottle before I ever looked at a video. Sold it the next day. I love lighthouses. Going to try and paint this painting. Thank you for all you do. Terrye Palm Beach Florida. I have a page on FB called T Shells by Terrye check it out and like please! smiles ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Totally love the background music too! Also, in my opinion, I prefer not to have live version because I just want to listen what teacher said without other noises and people's talking.

  6. I love your videos!! I am very new to painting and your videos have been really helpful. I was just wondering if itโ€™s fine to use the Golden Glazing Liquid with other brands of paint like Liquitex? Also, you mentioned your favorite brands but have you ever tried Sax paint? Iโ€™m looking online and finding that Sax arcrylic paint is more in my budget but not sure if itโ€™s any good or not…


  8. Hi Cinnamon๐Ÿ˜Š i was wondering if you had any tips or advice for me..im a beginner and I've never done a painting before..how do you calm yourself before you paint?

  9. Is there a traceable for this lighthouse? Could not find it. Please keep up the wonderful traceables – I so need them and appreciate that you offer them! Thank you!

  10. Hey I saw your video . pretty cool. Actually I am just a kid and love drawing but there are still some things that I cannot understand I hope you can talk me please . ๐Ÿ‘ง

  11. Do you have the sizes on the canvas? Im pretty sure its a 11" by 14"(27.94 cm by 35.5 cm) but I dont want to guess, this is a birthday present…

  15. Yes, lighthouses mean so much to me. Growing up in California. north and south, I saw many lighthouses. I love the landscape around the lighthouses, and it is iconic, in classic films, namely Albert Hitchcock. Rolling hills reaching out to the ocean. Cliffs down to the ocean are both beautiful and scary to drive on top of, sometimes narrow two way highways with small guard rails or none. I want to be scattered in the ocean between the two oceans by Point Arena lighthouse in California. the cliffs have wildflowers all the way down and there is a "Devil's Gulch," which water goes in and sprays up through the huge hole, and rainbows appear each time the waves crash. Also it is the center of where the ocean splits in two parts.

  16. Hello, Sherpa! I've only just begun painting and stumbled on your page while searching for stuff for beginners. Your whole process, from your voice, to your teaching style, to the way that you describe what you're doing is quite remarkable. I've watched other teachers who could learn a few things from you.

    About this painting…

    Lighthouses have always had a special place in my heart. I spent a lot of my early adult years sitting on a pier and catwalk that lead to the lighthouse in Michigan City, Indiana. It's even the place where I proposed to my fiance. After completing this painting, I hope to go to Michigan City to take a picture of their lighthouse at sunset(it's not really positioned well for a sunrise painting)and put that to canvass. I was looking for some inspiration, and I've found it here. I'll be viewing as many of your videos as possible.

    As a beginner, I wanted to limit my investment for supplies. I bought a cheap paint set made by "Fine Touch" at a chain art/craft supply store(don't want to give a shameless plug, so I'll just say that it rhymes with Cobby Robby). The set doesn't contain the exact colors that you've used(except for black and titanium white). My main concern is with the purples that you've used. The set that I have contains violet and a few different blues. Can you suggest what to mix with the violet to get the dark purple color that you used, please?

    Again, thank you so much for being a great teacher!

  17. Thank's a lot for this beautiful lesson. And colors, colors are so beautiful. It is the first time I see you so zen .I love the contraste 'entre 'the colors very strong and the music so relax. Another time thank you Cinammon. ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽ‡๐ŸŽ‡๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’–โœจ

  18. Hi Cinnamon, I have been watching your videos for some time now and I like the way you showed and explained each step of blending colours, brushing and holding the brushes. I just enjoyed. I very much want to be your student. I am 82. and a beginner !! I hope You will allow me.

  22. I love this painting and I would like to try to make it myself. ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ’— I found you about a year ago and I have 4 paintings that I have done because of your inspiring and loving teachings. I got very sick and I haven't been able to paint in over 6 months now. But I'm starting to feel better so I'm going to pick up where I left off. Thank you so much you are my favorite teacher of all that are on YouTube ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ’—
