We’re moving forward at Cuff and Clamp towers with new videos. Different camera setup and better sound and video quality. This video demo is for one of my watercolor classes at
Post Road Art.
This is the current setup – it’s evolving.
My lovely husband set up the fancy microphone and camera to test out video today. Some people in my class like to see demos but I don’t want to take up too much of their time with me painting. So we thought about videoing me at home and I can then give them the links. Very much a work in progress but I was pretty happy with how this one turned out. We’ll keep going and work out the wrinkles as we go.
And I managed not to ruin the painting too. A good days work.
I have a commission that I really want to do a good job on. Well of course I always want to do a good job but this one is, ummm, tricky. Horses. Horses with riders. Not straightforward and even Mr Zbukvic says horses are the most difficult things on the planet. So today was horse sketching day. Not fantastically successful but progress is being made.
And we have a video! First time doing a time lapse on the iphone. This was very professionally propped up on a coffee mug next to the water jar and came out well considering.
It’s very strange to watch this. It looks like I just draw things and then color them in straightforwardly. It is abolutely nothing like that in real life. It’s a constant stream of decisions, problem solving, mistakes, going over stuff. Also – next time shoot from the left hand side. Will have to get the tripod out.
