Compressing Time with Videos
I can finally demonstrate my method of painting intuitively in the studio. Thanks to the convenience and quality of the ipad camera and easy editing software, I can compress an hour of studio time into a mere two minutes of video time. I can work on multiple paintings and resort the movie clips into seamless footage that hopefully tells the story of each painting’s development.
I’m presenting a “Textured Layers” demo at the Hunterdon Watercolor Society on April 1st. Having only an hour to demonstrate, I will bring six paintings in various stages of development. The members will be able to view the online tutorials to watch how the various stages of the paintings were created. I will demonstrate adding a new layer to each of the samples. The final painting will be a completed painting. That will leave five for the next demonstration, each one stage further along.
