Parts 2 & 3

It took me 15 minutes just to color the birdie
so I divided the video in two parts.
Next video will show the detailing of the feathers with acrylic ink.
More information on the materials I used to make this can be found here.

¡Hola!:

Me encanta ver cómo se va creando tu trabajo, la facilidad con la que mezclas los colores y con la que consigues manejar el pincel. Además, el pájaro te está quedando precioso.

Tengo muchas ganas de ver la parte final con la pintura acrílica y ver cómo se usa.

Muchísimas gracias por estos vídeos. ¡Me han alegrado el día!

Hello,
I love your site and am thrilled I found it through apartmenttherapy.com and Sophie Munns. I am enjoying the painting videos and it makes me think I can try it a bit :)

I also am enjoying your boys drawings and paintings.

Thank you for creating such a wonderful site.

Hello Gennine...I love your work...it's "happy" art...I always feel good when I look at it. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise! A question...how do you do your birds....do you create them out of your head or do you look at pictures of birds to get them to look just right? I love birds, but I don't find them easy to draw. Yours are just whimsical and wonderful!

So great seeing your work come alive! One question...you paint the background first...your preference or is there an 'art' reason? Thanks again!!

Thank you so very much for sharing these! I would really love to know how you are managing to paint the brown of the wings against the orange which is still wet without the colours completely running into each other? Is there a secret I am missing??

Blogger rkramadh said...

Thanks for sharing these, it's wonderful to see you bring that bird to life. One thing I noticed is you don't worry about dipping the brush from one color into another. In fact, you seem to be mixing colors right in the paint boxes :) Since you are creating new colors right there, what happens if you ever needed that original color? May be I am just paranoid about mixing colors in the paint box, I mix in a separate palette...would love to know your thoughts on that.

I especially enjoyed the white ink details video! I have to give that a try, it looked rather watery and I felt I couldn't get that white lines you do. Could be that my paper is too absorbent. Thanks again for sharing these, I loved the music too.

Hi there,
thank you for all your videos and blog. Very helpful to review techniques.
May I ask what your color pallette is and how you set it up in what order? Also, what brand paints?
Thank you,
crystal

shoot, Geninne, I was hoping to see you detail it out with the white. I loved all three videos. It was so fun to peek over your shoulder and watch greatness at work. <3
