Short and Sweet
As my husband will tell you, impatience is my middle name. So before I click on a video I check the run time. If it's longer than two minutes I move on. I use the same philosophy when I create my own videos. I want my them to be short and watchable.
For this one I wanted to record my painting of "Late Light", start to finish. However--due to the hours of work involved in this 36" x 36" painting--that would have taken a lot of time to view, even with the magic of time lapse photography.
So I've condensed it to make it easy to see the progress on the painting without watching every brushstroke. This is a scene in late afternoon on Avenue Emile Zola in Paris. I really wanted to capture the sense of the strong golden light and the long shadows.
Enjoy the video!
I'm Linda Hugues and I paint scenes of people and places from my vacations in Europe and my travels in Florida. Here on my monthly blog I write about everything related to my art life, in and out of the studio. Enjoy!
