Speed Painting Videos

I've watched (or tried to watch) hundreds of YouTube videos of artists speed painting as a method to include an entire work as a tutorial. No voice over, unpleasant music (to me) and with no clue as how the video is a tutorial.

How is learning done watching speed painting? Or is it just to get the viewer's creative juices (CJ's) flowing?

Re: Speed Painting Videos

I don't know if it's just a gimmick or not, but you oughta try it. Sometimes the result is nearly spectacular. I used to study with a teacher who had a sign in her studio that said, "PAINT, DON'T THINK." Kind of the same idea.

I doubt that these "fast" painters paint like that every they take brush in hand. I'm sure they slow it down a bit. But just for the heck of it, try it for yourself.

One thing that may help (it helped me) is to use cheap old cardboard instead of an expensive canvas. After all, you're going to work fast an not to a lot of correcting. Visit your friendly local dumpster and pick out a few pieces of reasonably good cardboard, cut some panels, coat them with acrylic matte medium, and turn out a few one to two-hour paintings. You'll get a feel for it at very low cost. And, if you turn out a masterpiece, later generations will wink and give it a thumbs up and comment around the campfire at how brilliant you were for painting on cardboard a la Edvard Munch.

I apologize for not being clear.

When I say "speed painting" I am referring to the videos that have been sped up to fit the allotted time so the viewer can watch the entire work unfold at lighting speed. The artists paint at whatever their usual pace is. Many are labeled/titled as tutorials. Here's an example.

I don't get it, but hope someone can set me on the path of rightness.

Re: Speed Painting Videos

I did a few dozen or so; first was with a feature built in specifically for Art Academy on the WiiU so a lot of people there just found it a good way to share their stuff. But then I got my tablet and Corel and decided to try some more, not really understanding why others do it but I guess Id hoped Id get some sort of feedback on what Im doing.

Thing is I feel like it kind of made me rush through some pieces just so it wouldnt take too long to convert and upload, etc. Then again, I never take more than a couple hours on anything anyway, but maybe I should try and see if that might help me improve.

They do that as a sort of "teaser". They want you to sub$scribe to their $ite$.
