The latest viral video trend on Instagram also happens to be an incredibly hypnotizing one: paint mixing. To make these popular videos, artists film themselves swirling, spreading and scraping different paint colors across their palettes to create one-of-a-kind shades.

But what is it about these videos that makes them so unbelievably satisfying? Science says it might have something to do with the color of the paints used: Green, blue, purple and pink shades are all believed to have a calming effect, according to VeryWell.com.

Regardless of what makes them so appealing, these videos make it hard to look away. Press play and prepare to be totally mesmerized.

But maybe the swirling hues remind us to the enjoy the journey and not just the destination.

I've been asked for the colours in my paint mixing videos a lot. My solution? #100daysofpaintmixing where I challenge myself to post one video a day - with the colours and brand I used. Here goes nothing! Day 001 - Williamsburg titanium white - Winsor & Newton lemon yellow - Holbein Ice Green - KAMA vert fluorescent
