How I painted my 'Orange Leaves Painting' : A video

Here’s something new for you: I think they call this ‘vlogging’.

I’ll admit it’s a bit unfortunate that my narrating sounds so serious I make a high court judge sound positively peppy in comparison - but cut me some slack: It’s my first attempt and I like to leave room for improvement. 😁


In this short time-lapse video, you can see me create my painting, Strength for Today and Bright Hope for Tomorrow – while talking you through how I did it.


This painting was recently displayed as part of the Grief & Hope exhibition put on by the Pilgrim Artists’ Festival.

I was thrilled to see it sold on opening night to a very enthusiastic collector who I know will love it - even if it was created by an artist whose video voice-over technique needs a vitamin injection.


PS: Leave a comment below if you enjoyed my first vlog – or if you have any questions, I’ll be happy to try and answer them.
