This is the second video in this series of 12! I'm hoping to continue the video series with more art as I go, but for now just getting these 12 done is proving to be a challenge. I present to you Sledding! One of my favorite winter activities, too bad my son doesn't feel the same. Hoping next winter I can get him to go down a hill or two, he definitely is a cautious one, which I'm entirely ok with!
I'm currently working on a calendar project. It is about childhood memories, and I've decided to start creating some videos to show the process behind the art. This is the first one, but I may end up having another go at it as I nail down the style I want to use throughout these illustrations.
Snowball fights were pretty epic when I was a kid, we would build forts, stockpile snowballs, and have these fights spanning three houses of kids. It was a ton of fun, and one of the many things I look forward to sharing with my own children.
This week's painting started off amazing, I was really excited where it was headed, but when I showed up earlier today to finish it off I felt stuck. I painted the first thing I thought of, which happened to be birds and I'm still on the fence whether this painting is done. I am actually thinking of carrying it over to next week so I can dig into it a little bit more. I think that could be an exciting cliff-hanger!
This weeks painting was super simple, and I just let it flow as it has been a busy week! I am looking forward to spending more time on painting next week, and really starting to develop a work in more depth! For now though I will take it, and I actually quite like the simplicity of this piece.
I'm embarking on a new project that I started this week, a weekly painting that a video tape and show you each Friday. One of my goals this year is to paint 150 paintings, and this is just one of the ways that I am going to keep myself motivated! I also happen to be a huge fan of watching painting videos that are sped up. So here you go, hope you enjoy these...
I finished filming and then went back and added some text to the piece. This is the finished painting.
