I thought I'd put this in a new thread so it wouldn't get lost in the last WIP of this painting.

I took quite a few pics during the painting process in order to make a video demo. Unfortunately, the tripod with my camera got kicked and moved a few times during the painting process. We have a very busy house with my three boys and my easel is set up in my kitchen!

anyway... the music doesn't work on this and it's really so much better with sound, but I thought I'd share anyway.

I always think my paintings start out like a mess and I literally sometimes think... "What am I doing... I can't paint!"... and then I keep working it and I begin to see what I have had in my head.

So... here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CM48p5q_RuY
And here is the painting again. Hope this is educational.

Nice demo, Susan! It's great to see that painting come to life. I find it totally amazing that you are able to paint ... in your kitchen ... with three boys!!! I was never able to concentrate on art when mine were young and was just happy to have an occasional thought to myself!

Love the demo! Wish it had been possible to keep it still, though. But it is fantastic to see it grow bit by bit! Thank you.

Lovely painting Susan. We have a lot in common - I work in the kitchen, have three kids and frquently wonder what the heck I'm doing
