This video shows Trevor Waugh doing what he does best in watercolor painting- …florals. With an entertaining and energetic approach Waugh deliberately and structurally takes to the paper with a variety of brushes to come to an eventual unveiling of a classic floral painting. This video tutorial is accompanied by an original soundtrack also composed by the artist Trevor Waugh, and creates a very relaxing painting experience. Follow his techniques and you won’t go far wrong. Pay attention to his color choices and in which order the watercolors are applied. Beautiful stuff.
A quick speed drawing showing you how to draw a cat from the looney tunes cartoons.
A very quick and easy way to draw this cute little cartoon cat.
If you are not familiar with her then let me enlighten you. Penelope is the poor little cat that has to put up with the very smelly french skunk Pepe Le Pew. Poor old Pepe is all mixed up and mistakes her for a female skunk. In the cartoon Past Perfumance, Penelope has a white stripe down her tale. On seeing this Pepe chases the poor cat, until she jumps into the water and the strip comes off. This is when he realises she is a cat. A favourite cartoon of mine and I am sure many of you.
A lovely little tutorial that although is very simple, produces a very sweet little cat. A lovely piece of music also that gives it that french feel.
The music is La Vie en Rose by Louis Armstrong, a cover of the song made famous by Edith Piaf.
“You touch the sky when you paint.” and it is true that many artists suffer. Although I don’t consider myself an artist, I’ve drawn pictures of my family, friends since I was a kid and I suffer a lot when I do a portrait, it can be painful because many times I feel like giving up but I don’t and the result is so sweet, almost heavenly.
This humbling art video features oils portraiture artist Chris Saper as she unveils what makes her tick in her day as a professional artist. To begin with, a cup of coffee, the smell of fresh paint and jarfulls of clean brushes all correlate to kick start the working day at her studio.
With any artist the prospect of a new painting is always exciting so the plain white stretched canvas is always an appealing sight. Saper’s work allows her to cross paths with people she would never usually be involved with and that combined with the various disciplines surrounding painting is what fills her day with joy as an oils artist.
She discusses how line, color, brushwork and finishing touches are all paramount to her final compositions and how she takes great pleasure from completing the eyes of her subjects because it makes her feel like she has a rapport with them. Finally comes her bitter sweet moment where she applies the final varnish to her signature to commemorate the finalisation of her artwork.
