Art In Motion: One painting from start to finish

Feb 2, 2016 | My Creative Practice


I wanted to share a super sped up painting with you guys. I love watching these time-lapses – so intriguing!


This is a painting where I tried something a little different with her face and played around with non-traditional face colors. I enjoyed mixing it up a bit, which is always good for creative play and experimentation.


The final painting lives here!


Thanks, friends!

ps: My angel painting class, Spirit Wings, is in session. If you’re feeling the nudge to come paint some angels with me with all sorts of step by step instructions and encouragement, come on over and join us. It’s an amazing group of kindred students!

Sending much love,

    Your special drawings always inspire me to get back to my art! I have the sketch book, the colored pencils and of course I did work with oil pastels and pen and ink in the past. I need to go through my portfolio and take some time to draw again. Have a Happy Mother’s Day….Susan

        aren’t they the gel sticks? Faber Castel? I thought of trying them but wasn’t sure if they were good.
