Festive Antlers (Drawing)

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – so time to start wearing my festive antlers again.

You can see a video of me adding colour to this drawing – shown at double speed accompanied by Dean Martin singing “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”.

This is the first time I’ve filmed myself drawing or painting. 

If Santa brings me a tripod for Christmas I might do more videos in the future.  We’ll see 😉

    Love the simplicity of the painting. She seems very calm considering the rest of us are running around as if our lives depended on getting that certain person that certain present. Love the music, great choice- it made me very relaxed.anticipate more in the near future? julie

  2. Thanks Julie 🙂 Compulsory non-doing you see … you have to find a smile or you’d go loopy!

    Thanks for the encouragement too.

    I can see this one! Yes, more videos, pls so we can watch your whole creative process.

    Rachel, I often use this same paintbrush — the one w the water already in it. But I’ve been using it over watercolor pencils; never tried it this way.

    See how great it is to share a video?

  4. And I was inspired to do after your suggestion Nina.

    It’s so easy with the water brush / aqua brush. It’s almost embarrasing it’s so easy 😉
