I decided to make a time lapse of a painting today… 4 hours of blood, sweat, and tears condensed into 28 beautiful seconds. The painting is a snowman.. which I have gotten really proficient at lately, that is until today. The snowman is for somebody specific, cue that perfect storm I have lovingly named “the snowman effect”.
I think all artists possess the problem solving skills of… ummm artists 😂. I think the people of the world would be floored to know that most finished pieces carry “mistakes” that required the artist to adapt, and create something a little more unique. Chances are the viewer is wondering what provoked the artist to paint a octopus flying through the sky holding 8 balloons, what does it mean??? I mean.. maybe it was intentional, but it was probably supposed to be a couple of people flying through the sky holding balloons but some limbs looked weird and maybe some heads were placed too close together, soooooo the problem solving artists sees an octopus, and instead of scrapping all that hard work, go with something, ANYTHING!!
My little snafu wasn’t that major, I just smudged black under an eye, then I tried to fix it about eight different ways, none were working and I loved everything but that stupid face!! So I sealed it, primed it, sealed it again, and then was able to paint the whole face white, and start from scratch! Awesome save *pat on the back* 😁.
So without further ado, here is a art time lapse and the final painting. Enjoy and thanks for reading!! Sorry the video is upside down lol!!
