Midsummer Dream – Time Lapse Painting

Midsummer Dream

Midsummer Dream

The video will show this long and tedious process of construction of this scene. It is a painting of what I thought was there and not what an observer would see., which is the final painting. In a way its not a very efficient painting process. There is an entire landscape covered by the foreground and if I were to paint this scene again to look as it does in this final stage it would have taken me a lot less time. I think when we imagine a scene, we construct a world and not a flat photographic image.

Apart from sharing your working method, a video is also helpful to the painter. Its a different perspective on how you work. Like the way you would look at your work in progress in a mirror, another way of seeing differently.

Anyway, have a look at the various stages in this video. These are a few future paintings of mine waiting to be reincarnated.
