The Forest Spirit: Time Lapse Painting

This video shows about 7 hours of painting today. I'm working in acrylic on canvas (30x40").

I started with the image in my head but didn't work with reference of any kind. This idea came from a vision I had about 4 months ago and at the time I made a quick sketch but this painting evolved away from that concept quite a bit. It was going to be an owl shaman, but this painting didn't retain a whole lot of owl energy. This is not finished, it will get another few hours of work at least before I call it done. 

And here is a still of the painting at the end of the day.

8-Hour Painting Time Lapse

Here is an example of how a typical live painting might unfold. You never really know where a painting might take you! After I finished this video I worked on the painting for another couple hours. 

Below is a shot of the painting after 8 hours of work.

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.
