Sarah in Apple Blossom Time – time lapse painting

Sarah in Apple Blossom Time

This is a time lapse video of the painting discussed in my last post. By not using a medium (normally Liquin) the colours ‘stay put’ and have to be dragged around the surface. This gives a particular look to the painting, the dry paint and canvas textures of Impressionism or Pointellism. See this painting by Georges Seurat.

A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, Georges Seurat (detail)

As you will see in the video the constant movement of the brush over the surface builds up the multitude of colours. The importance of using colours which work well together is illustrated by the fact that every piece of the painting has all of the colours in varying amounts built up one on top of the other, wet on wet, yet there are no ‘muddy’ or dead areas.

Its nice to remember the bright days of summer as we approach the dark days of our winter months.
