My first week as full-time artist was spent swimming in the deep end of video production. I plan to have a regular vlog on Youtube, more about that at a later date. I also want to produce art demonstrations or even tutorials. I really know very little about video production so I’ve been studying Premiere Pro all week until my brain went numb. Now I know how to use my Go Pro camera and my Lumix too. I’m experimenting with microphones, sound recording is harder than I thought. What names should my wee recording buddies have? At last I will get a chance to paint tomorrow. Have a nice weekend.
Sunday was a rainy day here in Stockholm so I stayed in my studio and played with my GoPro camera. I filmed myself painting a sketch in my Moleskin journal. I have an ambition to publish films of my painting process to help others learn from the knowledge that I have gained since I started in 2012. I need to learn how to edit film, next weeks project I guess.
Hopefully I have something to show real soon…
Here is an interesting talk about Anders Zorn’s house in Mora, Sweden. Johan Cederlund is the director of the Zorn Museum there.
Johan Cederlund holds a PhD in art history from Lund University and was curator of the art collections at Uppsala University, Sweden, from 2000 to 2006. Since 2006, he has served as museum director of the Zorn Collections in Mora. He is an adjunct professor at Uppsala University. Cederlund has written various books about Swedish art and architecture, including Classical Swedish Architecture and Interiors, 1650–1840 (2007) and Zorn
I’ve admired David’s portrait skills for a number of years now. I watched this video when I was having breakfast this morning. It wasn’t the first time I watched it, some films can be watched over and over again.
I found this film about Jim McVicker to be very inspiring, mainly because I feel that I am on the same path. I’m just starting out, at least that is the way it feels.
Some good advice on getting your art into galleries…
