Time-lapse Videos

A video featured on Paper and Ink Art's social media feed, this is my playtime with Lumiere bright gold acrylic by @jacquardproducts. If only I could paint this fast in real time ⏱🎨🏃‍♀️
I was so thrilled to be part of The Scout Guide Huntsville's inaugural edition. As part of the "Doers and Makers," I thought it fitting to celebrate with-- what else-- artwork! And of course, a little brush calligraphy as well.

30 seconds to this sweet little watercolor lamb, created for a nursery series. This is a good example of how using darker colors to add shadows can really add to the depth of the subject.

This one I did late at night, after I learned of the Orlando shooting. I was, like the rest of the country, really upset about what had happened, to the point that I couldn't sleep. So I sat down at my drafting table, wet the paper and began throwing each color of the rainbow onto the page, not thinking much about what was happening.
A few weeks ago my mom showed me a YouTube tutorial on making abstract roses with acrylic paint and a palette knife- no paintbrush. That's so far out of my comfort zone I had to try it.
Today I'm taking you backstage, on a (literal) whirlwind tour into the process of how exactly I create a Cityscape. You may know that my first Cityscape came about a little by accident... it actually started as a save the date design commission for a sweet Huntsville bride.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I decided it was high time to paint a margarita glass. (But really, do we ever really need a reason to paint a margarita glass?!) This one's too much fun not to share.
Here's a quick look at how I created this watercolor swan, complete with floral halo!
