Art Series #15 - Eye Study in Oils & My New Motivation

Monday, February 12, 2018

Today I am sharing with you the second of my oil studies, Study of an Eye, before I move on to my first full size oil painting this year. If you'd like to see my first oil study, check out Art Series #14 - Lips Study in Oils. I set up a poll over on YouTube asking my subscribers what they'd like to hear me talk about in this video, and the winner was "my new motivation" with 41% of the votes. If you missed that poll and want to be included in future polls or other things, then subscribe to my YouTube channel to get those notifications over there! So my new motivation is what I talk about while you watch the time-lapse footage of the painting process of this eye...

DIY Glass Paint Palette - Cheap & Easy as Heck!

Friday, February 2, 2018

I have to say that I've been really loving my homemade glass paint palette since I made it over a year ago! Your paint swirls around on it so nicely--which is amazing for colour mixing--and you can easily scoop up every last bit of paint with your brush, leaving behind barely any residue, which means so much less wasting of expensive paints! And it's soooo cheap to make one! Being that I've been painting a lot lately, and have been realizing my appreciation for this amazing painting tool even more, it dawned on me that this would be a great tutorial to show my fellow artist followers/subscribers, so I whipped up this little tutorial for you - I hope you'll be as crazy about it as I am! Let's take a look...

Art Series - Post #14 - "Lips" Oil Study Time-lapse

Friday, January 26, 2018

In my previous post, Welcome 2018 - These Are My Goals This Year!, I wrote about my goals (or resolutions) for the year, and therein I spoke about my goals for my art career for 2018. In this video I speak a little bit more about that topic while I show you the time-lapse video footage of the first oil study I did earlier this month.

Welcome 2018 - These Are My Goals This Year!

Thursday, January 18, 2018

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you all passed a fantastic Holiday season and New Year with lots of time spent with family and friends! I'm glad to have you back here on the blog and I think this will be an amazing year! 2017 started out great for me; Vada came into our lives, but I feel like it wasn't a very productive year in terms of my goals and here on the blog, unfortunately, and not a whole lot else happened. I'm determined to make things different this year, and hopefully inspire some of you to do the same!

Sunday, December 10, 2017

This year I am decorating my tree in white and gold with touches of red! I think I will do a post on my tree here on the blog showing you all my ornaments; which ones I bought, which one I made, which ones were given to me. I'm still in the process of making a few things, so in this post I bring you another tutorial for one of those ornaments - DIY Knitted Look Christmas Ornaments. They are very simple to make, you need very little to make them, and I'll throw in a couple tips in this post. Let's go...
