VIDEO: Working To A Plan Mixed Media Art PLUS News Of Upcoming Projects

A colorful mixed media card by Kim Dellow

Sometimes I plan my art, yes I do, and I’ve talked about the power of planned art before in my videos. It can be a really useful tool to have in your creative process repertoire. So I’m chatting about it again today, because this piece is partly planned art and partly unplanned art.

But I have some other things to share with you in my planned art – unplanned art video and they are some of what is keeping me so busy at the moment! I have some heads-up about my new and exciting Patreon changes, which you can also read about on my Patreon Page. Plus I am writing a creative exercising book/ download that you are gonna wanna be signed up to my newsletter to get your hands on when it is finished!

Anyway, you can hear more in the video whilst you watch this project evolve!

(Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)

VIDEO: Mixing Acrylic, Acryl Gouache and Gouache Paint Layers

Layers of acrylic paint and gouache by Kim Dellow

I am flexing my mixed media muscles today with a double page spread in my junk journal that is all about experimenting with gouache and acrylic paint.

You have seen me use gouache before, I go through my gouache phases! And you have seen me use it with acrylic paint in the same piece. But usually it will be as just a top layer or on a separate section.

But for this project I really wanted to see how gouache and acrylic paint play together when you layer them up and just alternate between the two.

It can be hard to tell when I am using which paint as the colors are very close to each other, but as you watch through the video I have try to note which type of paint I am using so keep an eye out for the captions!

VIDEO: How Many Times Can This Art Change Directions?

Big rainbow flower illustration by Kim Dellow

Have you had pieces change direction on you this week? So you are working on an art project, it starts off as one thing but ends up something else entirely! Much like my piece for you today, it started as an abstract, went through a doodle phase then finished as a stylised flower. A rainbow stylised flower.

So I hope you enjoy watching and hearing about the process in my video today.

VIDEO: Inspiration For Your Next Art Project! Lots Of Mixed Media Layers.

Acrylic paint and ball point pen flower on lots of layers by Kim Dellow

I love layering and I have lots of layers for you today in my art video. So I hope you like some layers too?! It is another floral piece and if you remember last week’s art video I was showing you how to use transparent and translucent paint to add a focal image with a flower painting demo.

Well this week I have gone for opaques to add my floral focal image and you can see the difference! So go back and do a compare and contrast if you still need convincing of the wonders of different paint opacities! 

This week’s video is a speedpaint so that you can see all the layers come together, so go grab a cuppa and enjoy.

If you want some more chat and a talk through of the layers then I have an extra video over on my Patreon for my Process Addicts going through this piece today. (Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)

VIDEO: Try This Color Challenge!

Color challenge and a bright and colorful art journal page by Kim Dellow

Who is up for another color challenge? I wasn’t planning for this to be a color challenge, like last week’s use neutrals color challenge, but when I got to the end of the piece three colors really jumped out for me.

They are ones that I don’t usually, purposely use together, more accidentally, like in this project, but I thought they would make a fun color challenge.

So here we are! Watch the video to find out more and then have a go and link me in to your shares on Instagram because I would love to see the results!

There are lots of different ways you can use the color combo so have fun with it, anything goes as far as I’m concerned!

VIDEO: Easy Acrylic Paint Doodle Flowers

Easy Acrylic Paint Doodle Flowers by Kim Dellow

I have some doodle flowers for you today in more ways than one! I will explain in a minute but keep tuned because I have a little ‘thank you’ freebie that you might like to grab!

But let me start you off with this piece today, I mean you will hear all about this doodle flower process in the video of course but you might be looking at the picture above and wondering about it.

Like way are there dots and lines behind the flowers? I quite like those dots and lines I think they add an even more bouquet feel to the piece, as if the doodle flowers bouquet was wrapped in one of those decorated cellophane spirals, do you know what I mean?

Well this piece started as a mark making project and turned into the doodle flowers and I think it is my favorite floral June piece, although the ‘Quick Inspiration’ leaf piece is a close second!

I liked it so much that I thought I would make it a giveaway to say thank you for joining me this month with the floral projects! So I have a black and white version of the line drawing for you to download over on my Patreon page and color in or use in your art. It is free for your own non-commercial use and you don’t have to be a Patreon to grab it (it is just easier to host it over there as a download!).

If you are my Patreon you can also grab the colored version of this piece too and you can use it in your art or hang it on your wall if you like!

I hope you have fun and enjoy it!

VIDEO: How To Paint A Simple And Colorful Acrylic Paint Background

How To Paint A Simple And Colorful Acrylic Paint Background with a single flower illustration by Kim Dellow

If you have ever found yourself struggling with complex backgrounds or perhaps you don’t have a lot of time but you NEED to art, (I know that feeling!) then today’s tip and art video inspiration is, hopefully, going to hit the spot for you! Because today I am sharing one of the quickest ways to build up a simple, colorful acrylic paint background.

You can still build up interest, texture and a colorful acrylic paint background with just a simple tool, the good old plastic card. You know the old credit card, or gift card?! This little tool definitely deserves a revisit every now and again. So I have a simple, colorful acrylic paint background and a flower sketch to share with you as part of my #KimDellowFloralJune Project.

And don’t forget that as well as the flower art on YouTube I have some creative exercises on Patreon too to help you expand your mixed media flower art. (Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)

VIDEO: Simple Mixed Media Flower Canvas

I am trying to recharge and refresh some old canvases and this week I thought I would ‘save’ this mini canvas with a simple mixed media flower. It is very abstract but fun to do. Now I start with a yellow underpainting and you will see why in the video! So enjoy watching the process and having a play yourself on one of your old canvases.

And don’t forget to share any projects on the #KimDellowFloralJune hashtag over on instagram

I have also been sharing some fun floral creative exercises over on Patreon for if you wanted to stretch your floral art practice or just try something different! (Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)
