    You're so talented, and seem like a great instructor. But I can't watch your videos because of the constant angle changes. You're doing something, explaining it, and the cuts are so fast they seem to bounce around.

    Dear Makoccino. I love how I am always inspired by your videos! II am currently going through artists block. My cousin and I both started art the same time a year ago,and I feel that his sketches are much better than mine. Since I compared his sketch of an eye, to mine I have really been battling to do any art. I feel that everything I am producing at the moment is rubbish. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hi Makoccino,

    I am a student from PAUSD and I am hoping to interview you for a project on painting. Here are five interview questions:
    1. What inspired you to start painting?
    2. Do you have any tips for a beginner painter?
    3. What painting of your’s do you like the best and why?
    4. What painting styles do you like to use?
    5. Is there any habits that you have while you paint?
    Thank you so much for your time!

    So pretty! Thank you for showing how you get the tracing onto your watercolor paper-I need to try that method because I feel like my sketching lightly on the watercolor paper itself doesn’t always turn out that great.

    This piece turned out beautiful. It really does add some interest to floral paintings when they have that unique border. Thanks for pointing us to wei tiang's instagram, such a lovely watercolor gallery.

    I don't know but in all of the art vloggers I've known in YT, you are the most gentle and confident about their claims in terms of anything. 😍 Unlike them, you don't have any disclaimers. Well to think of it, why would you? Your artworks are so gorgeous as you! 😍

      For watercolors it's best to use watercolor paper as on other paper this medium doesn't behave that well and look as good!
