abstract art

I've started a new YouTube channel!

Here is my first post, I'm basically just having fun with my new GoPro, learning how to create a time lapse video and all that. This little painting was made in about 5 hours or less. I'm working in acrylic on canvas here. The quick drying time of acrylic is important when live painting. 

I plan to do these time lapse paintings at least a couple times a month and the finished paintings will all be for sale immediately. Hit me up if you're interested in purchasing one. 

Speed Painting #1 Timelapse

Preparing the background for this weekend's live painting at Praxis Arts

I'm recycling an old surface as the starting point for this one. It was a painting that I started at Imagine Festival last year and didn't think it was worth finishing. There was a big elephant head floating in the middle that I blacked out last night and roughed in a few new lines over the top. At the event on Saturday I'll start to paint in a mask integrated with the geometric shapes of the background. 

Hope it goes better than the elephant did! It's always an adventure live painting without a hard plan.
