How to Paint a Bird: Learning to make a video

A friend of mine has a videorecorder, and so the other day, I decided to try and make my first video. Here’s what I have to say about it: the adage “you learn from your mistakes” is certainly true!

I DID learn a lot about what NOT to do, and so the next time I record, I’ll know things such as how to set up the recorder, how far away, lighting, and how to edit better. But it was kind of fun doing it, and making a “speed painting” effect.

Here’s a link to the video. I am painting a titmouse, because I have sold several of these (I will be making canvas prints from now on!).

Below is the finished painting. Oh, and Happy Labor Day!
