I finished my painting "Hummingbird At The Feeder". I'm also very close to finishing the drawing of this lady here and it makes me very comfortable that I still haven't come up with a title for this piece.
This Week's Video
This week, I tested three more of the Koh-I-Noor Progresso Woodless Graphite Pencils. I'd had one in a 9b for a while and I loved how it felt on the paper. I'd been meaning to get some more and I finally picked up a 2b, 6b and 8b from Artist and Craftsman and I was not disappointed, as you'll see in this video.
Right now, I'm working on a video about why art tends to stop being fun when it becomes your job and ways to get that joy back. It's going to feature a voice over while I'm working on the pieces featured in this post.
I've decided to challenge myself to do a painting mixing every color I'm going to be using from the primary colors, plus black and white.
I think I'm going to go down to releasing videos on youtube once a week, but the videos will be longer and more involved. I'm also going to be showing a lot more of me painting and drawing and less talking head stuff.
