VIDEO: Turning Waking Art Into Real Art – Mixed Media Abstract Art

 

Have you ever woken up with a picture in your head of a project you really need to do? Well, this happened to me yesterday. I woke with a really clear image in my head, this waking art just popped into my head as I became aware of the new day and started to open my eyes. But it wasn’t just an image it was a feeling too, you know when you wake up and the images and feelings are all merged together as one? I couldn’t hold onto the feelings, they soon vanished back into the dream world, but the image was still there and I tried to turn it into something real and you can watch me do that in my video today.

It is a very mixed media piece with gouache and watercolor paint, acrylic ink and collage. So go grab a tea or coffee and watch my waking art turn into real art!

VIDEO: Mixed Media Collage Painting – Project 2 From My Burnout Series

 

More burnout art today and a mixed media collage piece. Yep, I am owning it and calling it burnout work! If you aren’t sure what I am going on about then visit last Wednesday’s post and watch that video first, it will be a little clearer. It is not so drastic as it sounds, don’t worry, but I have been suffering from a bit of burnout and decided that an easy come – easy go art session, which didn’t have to result in anything, would help. I mean I did film the session but I wasn’t forcing myself to make anything ‘show-able’, it just so happens that a few projects did come out of it. And here is the second of those projects. I showed the first on Wednesday, another mixed media collage piece, which as it happens also had a butterfly too – I mean theme, much?!

I might show the other pieces over on instagram rather than as videos as they were super short, so keep your eye out for them. You will spot them as they are all the same color scheme. In the meantime, the colors I have used are all listed below and there is a close-up piccy too! But you knew that didn’t you?!

VIDEO: Answering Questions And Mixed Media Speed Art

 

I enjoy hearing about how people work and their creative process so when I recently got some questions about my process and how to cope with overthinking, a subject close to my heart as you know, I thought I would share my answers via this video. I also talk a little bit about burnout as I am just trying to work through a burnout at the moment.

Hopefully, you also enjoy hearing about other people’s creative processes and perhaps it will help you too with some of the tips I share or just by knowing that you aren’t the only one trying to work these things out!

Whilst I chat and answer the questions I’ve got a quick mixed media project to share as well, so I hope that you enjoy watching that too, and that it kicks off some ideas for your next project!

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journal Process – Gouache and Acrylic Paint Layers

 

 

This is a page of gouache and acrylic paint layers and it has been sat in my junk journal for months! Well, actually, it has been sat in my junk journal half finished for months, if I want to be accurate about it! This gouache and acrylic paint layers page started life as just a gouache paint experiment on gesso until I spotted it again this week and decided to finish it with some acrylic paint. But you can watch the whole gouache and acrylic paint layer process and listen to it’s painty story in my video today!

If you follow me over on instagram or have watched my DIY Stamp Carving Process video then you might recognise this design, if not then hop on over and check either of them out and say ‘hi’ whilst you are there!

As usual I have a list of the products I used for this gouache and acrylic paint page below the video and a close-up picture of the design is there too!

VIDEO: Color Combination – How To Use It To Inspire Your Art

VIDEO: How To Use A Color Combination To Inspire Your Art

 

I’ve started to notice that some of the projects I’ve been sharing with you this year have been very lead by color combination. So today I thought I would lean fully into it and show you a study that I did recently that was completely lead by the colors. In fact the art is not at all important in this piece it was more about mixing the colors and trying them out, plus finding the right materials to get the look that was in my head out onto paper.

So if you have a color combination stuck in your head at the moment let me know what it is, because I am always curious! And hopefully this video will give you some ideas and tips on how to test that color combo out ready for your next project!

Don’t forget that the products are all listed under the video if you are interested in what I used and the color names!
