Time-lapse of 30 paintings in 1min 41sec

in art •  last year

Last year I painted 120 paintings (yes, I know I'm crazy). I don't always have the patience or time, but I captured a number of them using a stop-motion time-lapse. It's a good insight in how I work, particularly with layers of color. I'd love to know which is your favorite!

Enjoy!

Love this @christiesnelson, this is a really awesome way to show your artwork! It's really cool to see the progression of a painting and I think the handful of frames for each photo does that so well. You are a very talented painter, I can't really pick a favorite though. I like the landscape paintings personally but the portraits and pet paintings are fantastic too! Seems like you do commissions for pet owners/lovers? I'm sure they absolutely love your paintings :)

Thanks so much! I used to be on the app Vine, and it made it pretty simple to make them that way. Plus I loved sharing them with the community there. And yes! I paint a number of commissioned pets! I'm usually working on a few at a time. Three cats at the moment! It's really a great honor to be able to provide a special keepsake.

From a fellow artist, those are amazing! Being a cat lover, I'd have to say I like the cat ones best! :) Following!

Thank you!! I love painting the cats!!

Wow, amazing talent! I love your use of colors. I really like all the paintings, but I think the second one is my favorite. What kind of paint do you work with?

·

Thank you! Color is the reason I paint. I almost always use acrylics first and finish with oils.

·

Aaahh thanks! Painting can be so relaxing huh? Almost like meditating.

Absolutely brilliant! Love your work. I wish that I had a fraction of your talent. I love to paint, but sadly my work is terrible. lol upvoted and followed

I paint landscapes generally, so the one that really stood out to me is the wooded scene with the rocking chair as the focus point. Very cool!

·

Thank you so much! I thought my work was terrible when I first started too. You get better with practice and become more of your own! I haven't counted in a while, but I think I'm up to about 600 paintings.

That rocking chair one, called "Embrace the Mystery," I did in 2014 and reflects a certain turning point in my life and will forever be a favorite! I animated it into a gif last year:

Yes, I certainly need to practice more. Thank you for sharing the title and gif. I can understand why it is a favorite of yours. I look forward to seeing more of your work. Maybe one day, I will get the courage to share one of my paintings here.

You totally should!!

Love this! I am always blown away by how paintings change with layers and how it all comes in to have the final product. Resteemed

Thank you! I love watching process too. So many different ways to approach.

Awesome :) I love all of them. They're all unique in their own right. Great to see artists here on Steemit.

·

Thank you! There's a number of artists growing a community here and it's awesome! :)

I like the guy playing guitar in the woods, and the floating chair in the snowy woods

·

Awesome! Thank you for the feedback!!

Love it! There's so many good ones It's hard to pick one. What's the song at 1:20?

·

Thank you! I couldn't tell you to be honest. I made all of these through Vine and a lot of the songs were out of the app. Sorry!
