In November 2014, Galerie de la Ville, Dollard Centre for the Arts, invited me to participate in a group exhibition entitled “Through the Artist’s Eye”; guest curator was Bev Wight. I decided to tape my process & created this set of videos that were posted online throughout the following year.
This is Video #1; it contains an introduction to the project & includes details about the image, the palette & a series of video clips demonstrating how I sketched my image onto the canvas.
Consecutive videos focused on the underpainting, shadows, & palette development, painting of panels 1, 2 & 3, hi-light featured painting details, final painting overview, art material maintenance, delivery of the artwork, & the vernissage opening reception. You can see the other 9 videos in this series at this link.
I had lots of fun putting this together, & with a crazy learning curve, too! Seriously new territory for me.
I hope that this series of videos provides some insight into the artistic working process. And that art lovers & artists among you, are able to take away a little something that might prove useful in your own artistic practice or bring the kind of freshness into your lives, that only art can.
