I am very happy to offer, today, my first watercolor demo on location!! 😀
It’s not perfect but I think that this test shooting was pretty much convincing nevertheless. Please tell me what you think. 😊
So, in the video, you will see me sketching a Breton church (in Pleyben) straight with the brush, with watercolor.
I try to explain, while painting, how I translate the subject on paper to create, I hope, a nice, loose and fresh quick painting. Once again, I have to apologize for my jabbering English… I will try to get better, I promise! ☺️
You will be able to see my gear, too, at the beginning of the video.
Recording these kind of videos makes me realize I fiddle sometimes too much with my sketches and am way too slow to grow some of the shapes 😉 but I hope the demo is good, nevertheless.
This is a real time video, so no speed up at all. However, you’ll see that I don’t paint the whole time at the same speed. It’s fun and a bit weird!! 😅 Sometimes, I paint at a slow pace, refining the shapes a bit too much and, suddenly, I dive into quick calligraphic marks and you could believe that I speeded up the video!! 😁
I hope that the video won’t be boring for you, as it’s a real time one, sharing the process for an around 35 mn sketch.
I think I will keep offering speed up videos, real time video, fun short videos, I mean all kind of videos, as you can share so much with this technique!! 😝 Please tell me, though, if you prefer some kind of video, for example if you think real time videos are too slow and boring or, on the contrary, more interesting especially with the explanation (even with my bad English).
It would be very interesting for me to know. 😊
As I am offering a watercolor workshop in India, some people told me that they couldn’t travel there to paint with me but would be very interested in an online class, by me.
Whooo, thank you so much guys, I am very proud and happy!! 😱😝
So, I started to think about it. 😉 I would like to offer both “teaching videos” with small quick sketches, simple shape creating, exercices suggestions and so on, and “bigger demos” (like the one I am sharing today) where you could see how I apply the techniques in a real sketch.
If you watched a video like this one within an online class (maybe with a better sound and a more enthusiastic tone 😁😜, if possible), would you be happy with it? Would you think that the demo and the quality of the video are good enough for a class? 😊
Do you think you could be interested to attend an online class with me? 😳☺️
By the way, don’t worry! Even if I worked on an online class, I would keep sharing with you some demos and some others videos for free, of course. 😘
I hope you will like the video! Happy watching!
