If Bob Ross and The Joy of Painting taught us anything, it's that people love to watch paint colors blend together. (OK, the appeal might've also had something to do with artistry, Ross himself, and all those happy little trees.) Since most of us don't have have the time, money, or cleaning supplies to run wild with acrylics all day, we're happy to report other people are sitting around mixing paints together and uploading videos of it for the rest of us to enjoy.

Instagram user paintvideos collects these cathartic moments and catalogs them in one place. Painters using the hashtag #paintmixing can alert the curators of their latest video in the hope of getting featured. The offerings include oil paint, acrylic, watercolor, and more. Just be warned: Once you start watching, it's hard to stop.
