Paintings and Palettes: New Videos

Happy Friday! I mentioned earlier this week that I’d been working on a video all about watercolor palette set-up, and I’m excited to share it now!

And last week’s video, in case you missed it, was an acrylic cloud painting tutorial for beginners. This is an easy painting using only a handful of colors!

 

I hope these videos are interesting or useful for you! If you like them, you can subscribe on my youtube channel to get a real-time update when they drop. I am hoping to make more videos because one of my goals for 2018 is to build up my video editing muscles! 🙂

Have a good weekend! I’m going to see the new Avengers movie – anyone else? So exciting!

Middleton Festival and Live Painting

Wanted to share some photos from this past weekend at the Middleton Good Neighbor Festival! I also made a time-lapse/video of the live painting I did on Sunday – you can check it out at the end of this post.

I spent Saturday painting miniature watercolor flowers/cacti to hand out….

And on Sunday, I did some live painting for a 30″ x 40″ large-scale floral bouquet. I started off by sketching out my plan on the canvas and filling in the main blocks of color….

Then added more and more details….

Had lots of fun painting outside in the fresh air and talking some folks through the process!

Here’s the time-lapse of the painting, hope you enjoy it!
