Plein air watercolour demonstration

I am happy to publish my latest watercolour demonstration. I have been frustrated by how long it has been taking me to produce this videos but now I think I’ve found a format that works. By works I mean that they are easier to film and produce. I hope you find this demonstration both inspiring and educational. If everything goes to plan I will be producing these videos more often in future.
We are sailing north of Sicily at the moment, this video was filmed in Salina, one of the seven Aeolian Islands.

Meldrum Art visits Singapore

New video just published

It took a while for me to complete my third YouTube video. I could write several pages of text explaining why but I won’t.
I had a great time in Singapore, watch the video and see how I got along.

Meldrum Art – Vlog #2

Meldrum Art – Vlog number 2

It was a little easier to produce this time around. It’s fun even if it does rack up the hours. I reckon it will take up 40 – 50% of my time in the future. That means I will have about the same amount of time for painting watercolour. My life drawing will have to take a lower priority.

It will be interesting in the coming months to see if I succeed at vlogging or not. I am learning so much these days when it comes to film editing, I do enjoy being challenged.

My first vlog

Meldrum Art – Painting Watercolour

I had this idea to start a vlog at the beginning of the year. It’s taken until yesterday to publish the first episode. I didn’t know how to film or edit at the beginning of the year. It was a steep learning curve but I enjoyed every minute if it. It’s not perfect by any means but it’s a start and that’s the most important thing, “the first step is always the hardest”, they say.

Learning curve

I am slowly getting used to filming myself as I paint watercolours!
Yes, I have ambitions to vlog on YouTube, a little about me and a lot about painting watercolour. There are a few barriers to navigate, one is filming myself, that feels so weird and the other obstacle is the amount of new stuff I have to learn like video editing and how to use a Go Pro.
I’m getting there, I had hoped to be on YouTube already but one has to learn to walk before one can run as they say. “Coming soon!”, I can also say that.
