faking a boom camera…

My Flip HD camera was screwed to a mini tripod and said tripod was then wedged under a can of chalkboard paint on a shelf above my work station to capture this little video. Hey, whatever works, right?

i’m experimenting with my new waterbrushes and creating a “color puddle” to use as background color/texture for a new illustration in pencil. Seriously, anyone can do this. You literally CANNOT mess it up.

Next time, i’ll work on my lighting¬† : )

Update: here’s what i got to wake up to the next morning! its why i love to work with a very puddly page…..the edges and the surprises you get when the painting dries are my favorite part!

    I’m feeling a bit motion sick after that one. Pretty, and I like how the black and other dark colours in your paint palette don’t look used

    That was great and I saw the sunshine yellow! Do you like the new brushes? Keep the videos coming, I like seeing how you work.

    I watched this with my 8 year old daughter (an artist in the making) and we loved it! We also have these brushes and I’m looking forward to playing with them some more after watching.

    Hello Stephanie,
    Just purchased your book today…..can’t wait to “doodle”! I was introduced to your work at the Etsy show in Philly a couple of years ago, fell in love with your whimsical bohemian doodling. Thank you for helping me find the artist within me. It is so much fun to play.

    hi sarah, i have an embarrassing stash of watercolors from every possible brand. But in the video i’m just using my small dry pan of colors from windsor-newton. They are great on the go, but i prefer tubes of watercolor usually for the variety of colors and more saturated pigment. Hope this is useful! -s
