  • This video inspired me so much! I originally looked just to see the sunflower but I ended up watching the whole thing without stopping because I just loved this video

  • Hey. I love watching your videos I’ve always had an eye for art and your videos have definitely intensified the level I can paint.
    I am wanting to do this painting as a mural what kind of paint would you recommend for such a big project? Brushes?

  • Im a huge Van Gogh fan and I had to try this painting.  Mine is not as lovely as yours, not really in proportion, but was fun to make, and the next one will be more free form and fun!
    Thank you for sharing your painting techniques and happy personality.

  • I'm new to painting and i love watching your show,your very helpful and you go step by still learning.i don't know which paint brush is which yet and my color mixing is a struggle but I'll get it😊

  • I to grew up with Bob Ross, he was the reason I paint. When you said happy little seed pods I teared up. Love what you do to inspire thousands of budding artists❤️

  • So interesting seeing your older videos, and how much you've grown too!! Going to try this one next, thanks for all you do! 😊 Jess

  • Absolutely beautiful painting. Your are such a wonderful talented inspirational lady. I would love to paint I have watched many of your videos. X

  • hi nice video, I like your tutorials, I have a question, with acrylics I have paly palish colours, how can i have strong and intese tones? thanks :))

  • Thank you for your lessons. One suggestion: When doing closer detail work, it would help if you zoom in so the details can be seen. Thank you again.

  • This was SOOOOOO much fun! & you’re teaching style makes it so easy to learn & retain knowledge/skills. Thank you!!

  • You're really funny and alive. It's a great pleasure to see your video. And I like your own interpretation of this Van Gogh's paint. It' so free ! Thank's

  • Hey Cinnamon!! What a wonderful sunflower painting!!! I have missed some of these earlier videos as I had not yet discovered you when you recorded this! I'm glad I found Lindsay, cause it was through her I found YOU 🙂
    This video is awesome sauce!! Awwwww little Spyder so cute!! Artsy hugs! <3

  • Hi! (5:04) When you say short bristles starting the stroke and long bristles finishing, are you referring to the angle brush or the bending of a flat brush as you paint? Thank you for everything you do for us. A new fan, Allie

  • I was given several pieces of roofing slate and my friend suggested painting on them. Is there anything you can tell me about your experiences with alternative surfaces? Do you think acrylic paint would be a good choice for slate?

  • Van Gogh paintings multi-sensory experience Abu Dhabi national Theatre – Starting from 14th Jan 2018 Dubai Design District – Starting from 11 MAR 2018.

  • I absolutely love this! Want to do a paint night party with a few of my girlfriends, but they always involve alcohol and are usually in a bar (not really our scene- we drink occasionally, but we like the nice quietness of venues not centered around it). They are also usually pricey, so this creates a wonderful win-win! Your personality is awesome and fun and I can't wait to get my girlfriends over to do this! Bless you!!

  • When life gives you lemons make lemonade, because of financial reasons I have poor quality paints and brushes, so I changed the art a bit and my friends and family liked how it turned out

  • I love these videos. I’ve been painting my whole life, taught by my mom. I just love how encouraging you are and how you remind everyone to let go of their insecurities and pre conceived ideas about what their artistic experiences should be.

  • what a beautiful painting! 😀 great inspiration from van gogh. I made a sunflower painting last week on my channel 😀

  • I love to watch you paint, I can't wait to get back into painting again, I had to take a year off because I broke my back and it looks like I am finally getting my surgery to fix my back this week, and I will be able to it up and start painting again soon. It will be part of my therapy to get me upright again.

  • I just absolutely love you! my husbands name is also jon and we joke that im gonna make how to paint videos for fun when im older. By then, im sure you'll be famous. You are amazing!

  • Hi Cinnamon! This painting has been such a relaxing experience for me. I'm fairly new to painting, but your video's have taught me so much! You've been like a mentor to me and have opened a door to a new creative experience. I never thought that I'd be good at something like painting. I always thought that it was too much of a commitment. But you've really shown me that painting can be easy, relaxing, and fun. This is my sencond Van Gogh Stylized painting I've done with you. The other one was of the whimsical tree that I painted at the park, on my 28th Birthday which was on July 29th. It just really made the day so great, you know? Anyways, I love painting with you. You're a fun person with a great spirit and look forward to painting with you more!


  • Every video…. Every single dang video I think I like you as much as I can (you're a top top fav up there with bergsma and ross) and something happens that makes me love you even more! 💚💚💚

  • thank you so much I just painted this and it is my very first ever painting and its awesome i would love to send you a picture and ask some questions

  • I just wanna thank you for your wonderful instruction, very easy to follow, clear step-by-step guidance. I just finished this painting and dont know how to show you 😀

  • I really like this one but I'm baffled at how so little paint goes so far for so much blue. Even adding water, it took four large blobs to get everything covered and no white bits showing through – and my canvas is not as big
    . I don't know if anyone is still checking comments on these older videos but I could use some input. thanks!

  • this is my first video i’m watching of you
    1) I love you! you’re so funny and kind! very optimistic!
    2) I’m watching football and painting

  • Hi! I know you probably won’t read this cause it’s an older video, but I just had to say it… thank you ☺️ I’m very glad I found your Chanel! I started watching at the oldest video and decided to do your video inspired by Van Gogh. Reason? I like realism… I want to do realism… but I basically have no knowledge, and never understood his “ Starry Night “. But the way you explained it??. It made so much sense!! So I tried it… took me like 4 days to finish it to my taste🥵 but it’s on the wall. So ya! Thanks! Tonight, I’m starting the impressionist water vase… lol in for a penny, in for a pound! I’m determined to learn!! There are no mistakes, just happy accidents… right?

  • I had an art teacher in elementary school…she was the absolute worst teacher I ever had. For years I felt like I shouldn't bother being creative.
    After seeing your videos I am so much more confident in my painting. My 4 year old even enjoys creating with me.
    I wish I had you as an art teacher. I wouldnt have wasted so many years thinking I had no abilities. You are so full of good vibes and energy. Keep up the amazing work!!!

  • I am about to rock a number 4 cats tongue on this one.
    I have been with you for a loooong time and am in a place mentally that your older paintings are hitting me in a quiet place that I need to be.
    Just letting you know that sometimes the oldies are goodies and they are needed when the lives can be too busy.
    When depression hits…
    I find the older ones help center the mind. Thank you for all that you do Cinnamon. Please keep it up. People like myself have been and will be there.❤️

  • My French Club and I did this with you! It was wonderful and we really enjoyed it! Thank you so much for making this video and sharing your painting with us!!

  • Cinnamon, you have inspired me beyond belief. I suffer from alcoholism. I have over 9 months clean and I fell into a "great depression" and feared drinking. I found your tutorials about a month ago. Every time I paint, the insanity in my mind just STOPS. I have learned to love my art work. My husband and children are thankful for you, as am i. And they understand that time has to be set aside for me to paint and can tell when I am not gwtting enough time. Yu are such an inspiration. Just thank yu for the purest intentions of the soul. ❤

  • all i own is oil paint and ive been trying to find a tutorial for oil painting. if I use different techniques, would I be able to use the same tutorial or would i have to use a tutorial specifically targeted at oil painting?

  • Just had the best paint nite at home thanks to you. My fiance and I are both therapists and we loved the idea of using painting to treat perfectionism!

  • Thanks cinnamon,for sharing your owl,I followed along with you ,and painted my first owl,thanks again your awesome

  • howdy doody…….just doing this magnificent painting and wanted to get your opinion……….how can i send it to you. thank you precious lady

  • I just love this video so much ! She teaches you some tips on painting and those vibrant colours are just amazing! ❤️ ❤️

  • June 2019, My husband and I watched this video lesson.
    We loved it.
    Such a charming warm lesson video.
    You’re #1.
    As a beginner, I have a question.
    Why did you not use the color Burnt Umber for the center of the 🌻 sunflowers?

  • Thanks a lotttt I had made this painting for a inter school competition and won the first prize
    Thanks a lot

  • wise beyond your years cinnamon…..great advice and guidance from beginning to end…….thank you… this piece of art!

  • Hi! I love your style and painting! You are phenomenal and I love watching your videos! Art on! 😁😁😁 Do you have any nerd theme (such as van Gogh mixed with Mario, Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc…) If not, I'd love to watch that from you!!!!

  • Hey Cinnamon! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
    I’m trying out your Mom’s pumpkin & sunflower painting. She used yellow oxide & I don’t have it. Wondering if I could get away with using yellow ochre instead of oxide for that painting?

  • I love this painting so much. I did paint this and found that I enjoy a more whimsical style. That discovery had been so important to me because now I can focus more on creating art that makes me happy versus fighting to be "perfect" lol "Perfect" for me is now whimsical.

  • So fast forward to years after I painted this…my best friend noticed that I forgot to do the stems and points this out as I have this hanging in my bedroom so I am gifting her this but this go purposely leaving out the stems bc….art is about teaching your friends to not worry about the stems your friends forgot to paint lmao😜

  • I did this one in a purple and red motif, with your help. And I did Starry Night in a red. Instagram is JoshuaKevinPerry if you want to see them.

  • Hi!! Merry Christmas! I painted this during the fall using this video tutorial 😃 I absolutely enjoyed every part of this step by step! Some favorite parts were mixing the colors, the swirlings around in the stats, and the many shades of popping colors that went into the petals! Your son was a great helper! Thank you for your videos, I'm working on another for a few gifts. I will post what I created in this painting on my Facebook under the same name. So you can see what I created 🙂

  • I just finished mine, so fun!! How do I make my starry night blend more? I still have abrupt endings with each color around the stars and through out it whereas yours looks way more blended! Thanks!
