Creation of a Painting DVD
Coming soon – behind the scenes creation of “Together Again” my new instructional DVD.
What fun we had shooting the videos that are being compiled and edited as I write this! Each day a different stage of the painting was shot with the camera on the painting so you can view the entire process of creation. For instance, the first day we covered the texturing process:
After the paint pigments had dried overnight, I then turned the painting surface all four directions to see which format I visualized the most horses and the best compositional beginning. I settled on this horizontal format below and began the process of “seeing”, then drawing in the horse images with my stick and India ink. You will see the two horses I initially saw and described.
After the ink dried overnight, I then began the process of “painting out” much of the background color surrounding the horses, Using this negative painting technique to develop the composition of the painting, My Marvelous Maids began to get a feel for the story within the colors and shapes.
