Photographing your painting process
I love watching people paint. Every painter has their own unique style as they go through the process - from their original concept, to the research they do, to the drawing, to the painting. If you are an artist you will understand that you get into a 'zone' as you create your art. That sure happens to me!!! There are many times when I finish a painting that I would love to go back and observe myself and the process I went through to accomplish it.
Taking photos as you paint is a way to go back and look at the process. I have started doing just that. Not with every painting mind you - it breaks up the zone and process too much for that - but with some paintings it's fun to do. Below you will see slide shows for two of my paintings - Eagle for Anthony and Beach Wedding.
Try photographing the process of one of your paintings. It is fun to go back and look at how it changes as you go.
