Art process 08 // orchids

orchids watercolor sketch

Normally, I have a semi-elaborate story about my paintings, my inspiration, my ups and downs through the process.

But this painting I created in the frenzy before the art show, running mostly on adrenaline. (Ok, also caffeine.)

Fortunately, I channeled some of that extra energy (read: panic) into heavily documenting the painting process.

By the time I finished the piece, I had a whole series of photographs that I wasn't sure what to do with. But after seeing Miranti's sketchbook video, I decided to try my hand at creating a time-lapse video myself.

I hope you'll forgive how rough it is around the edges -- next time a tripod is definitely required! I had a lot of fun making it and am excited to make more in the future!

The song in the video is "Dissolve Me" by Alt-j -- as you may remember, it's one of my favorites.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
