Video Diary I, II , III

Trying out Instagram video! A challenge but I supplement in the description -- is that cheating? Let me know if you like this format. Longer videos on my process and other projects are at http://www.youtube.com/creativespiritworks Follow my progress at https://www.facebook.com/Artwork.MollieKellogg My completed paintings are at http://www.molliekellogg.com


VIDEO DIARY I
Painting video diary I: Goals/challenges. Starting to block out figures with raw titanium matte.


VIDEO DIARY II
Painting video diary II: Why multiple paintings? Continued blocking out figure with Buff Titanium and Potter's Pink glazing. (Found an unopened bottle of glazing medium on my shelf and thought I world try it.) Started on hair and drapes on small painting.


VIDEO DIARY III
Painting video diary III: Who is in control? Went back and did a second pouring - the the figures in the large painting did not have enough texture on their skin. I also poured some brighter colors on their hair and also on the sunset and flowers on the girl on the chair. Pouring where I might have previously started blocking with a brush to keep in line with my objective to keep these loose.
