Recording the process

I love watching other people paint.  I decided a while back that I would share a little of my process for others to watch, thinking that it might be helpful to them but in recording my own process I have come to realize how fun and beneficial it is for me to watch these videos :)  It’s such an odd experience watching my painting develop from a third party point of view, seeing how my hand moves the brush on the canvas…even though I am the one that painted the piece I can’t help but wonder in anticipation about what’s going to happen next while watching the play back LOL.

The video below is a time lapse of one of my most recent paintings created on stretched canvas using mainly a kitchen scrub brush to apply the paint.  I have a bit of an aversion to traditional brushes at the moment and quite often find myself experimenting with different and unconventional tools to create my paintings.

This painting is currently for sale.  Email me at info@shellyfergusonfineart.com for more information.
