I am still doing the video transformation series, but have started calling it Transformation Thursdays, had a better ring to it!
Essentially I start off with a background card that I embellished with scraps of paper then after drawing a loose image and applying paint the card transforms on as you will see in the video below and then you are a participant in the transformation.
The main thing to remember to do is to have fun while you are painting, and I see these mini paintings as a way to keep me creating, especially when time is limited.
I have been doing the paintings in the morning, and is a way to set the creative tone. I usually allow 30 minutes to creatively unwind, but sometimes end up giving myself a bit longer.
You have to do what and where suits you. I'm an early riser so, usually this part of my creative practice is done between 6.30am and 8.30am, and its also really lovely to hear the first morning sounds, the birds and other noisy critters:)
As you can see there is lots of lovely texture going on and then I have added color as suits.
I hope you enjoyed the video, if you decide to give it a try, do let me know how you get on with the process. I shall at some point be sharing a start to finish painting in this style with you. For now stay blessed and be a blessing!
