Video: Painting Wind

I've created a video so you can watch the process of creating my latest painting, Wind! In the video I quickly flip through the rough, preliminary planning stages and then you can watch me paint the whole piece in stop-motion. This is the first video I've ever made and isn't really meant to be an instructional video, but hopefully it's fun to watch the process. It compresses many weeks of planning and about ten days of painting time into three and a half minutes. I usually work section to section because it allows me to work "wet into wet" as much as possible without the paint drying.

I recommend clicking the little gear at the bottom of the video to upgrade to HD quality and watching it full screen to see the details of what's going on.

Thanks for watching! If you like it, please give it a thumbs up on youtube and share it on facebook or other social media.
