VIDEO: Easy Mini Abstract Painting Exercise

Easy mini abstract exercise video by Kim Dellow

If your managed to catch my Life Book 2020 Summit interview and activity, or you have been following me for a while, then you will know that I have a few different art practices that I try to keep doing regularly. On Life Book I shared my Daily Doodle Diary with some exercises and tips to get you started on yours.

Today I am sharing more about one of the exercises that I shared in my free ‘Get Creating’ ebook – the mini abstract exercise. This is another of my regular art practices and quite linked to the Daily Doodle Dairy.

So I am sharing today why doing these types of exercises, the mini abstract and Daily Doodle Diary, can be so useful and how the two are linked too and I hope that it inspires you to add mini abstracts into your regular art practice along with your Daily Doodle diary practice.

VIDEO: EASY Watercolour Backgrounds Made With Acrylic Paint To Try

5 watercolour backgrounds made with acrylic paint by Kim Dellow

I have some fun backgrounds in my art video today for you to try in your next art session. They look like watercolor backgrounds but they are all done with acrylic paints.

But why do them with acrylic paint instead of watercolors? Well, you can of course do them with your watercolors but if you like to layer your pieces, like I do, then starting with acrylic paint backgrounds can be really useful can’t it? Because you can layer up over the top and not worry about the layer underneath reactivating and mixing with the new layer.

And you can make a whole batch of these backgrounds and not have to worry about remembering what you used to make them with! Because they are compatible with lots of materials that you might want to use on them.

Very handy backgrounds!

VIDEO: Keep On Layering!

A bright and colorful layered art journal page by Kim Dellow

 

Just keep on layering – I think it is my new mantra! At least for today’s art video it is and it continues on from last week’s art video where I was using the same technique to work through my ‘new layer’ blocks. Do you remember we talked about them last week? It is worth doing the exercise a few times, so I have another painting process timelapse to share with you using the ‘Keep On Layering’ mantra. 

Let me know how you are getting along with your keep on layering exercises!

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!
