Paintings after the video

Knowing When to Stop: the Painting of No Hat #82 (14 minutes)

After making this video — which did not go as smoothly as it could have — I found the next paintings (3 of them) went much smoother. I didn’t end up taking them to the sink more than once and there was far less re-working and painting over.

Talking, video-ing and recording altered the painting process. So, really, the video represents some of the least smooth work, but I’m very happy with the final painting and I think it makes an interesting document.

Not talking – or using that part of the brain – is one of the things that happens when I paint. I need to get better at doing a demo – painting and talking. I may continue to videos and fine-tune demonstration components for classroom events.

I’m not surprised that “No Hat #83, #84 and #85” (posted below) flowed beautifully as a result of making the video.
