VIDEO: Art Painting Process -Did I Go Too Far?

Mixed media art with lots of acrylic paint and crayon work by Kim Dellow


Sometime in my painting process, when I make my mixed media pieces, like art journal pages or the other pieces that I do, I can get to a point when I don’t want to add another layer. Do you know what I mean? I don’t feel the piece is finished but I’m scared to add another layer in case I mess it up. I mean it is ok as it isn’t it? Why should I add another layer and risk that mess up?

Well, this week I thought I would try a little creative exercise and share the results with you in this timelapse video so that you can watch the whole painting process. And I hope that you have fun trying this exercise in your own work too!
