Moving Fast Forward!

It's been a productive day for me!  I've been working on my haunted house painting for what feels like forever. Just this week, I got hung up with a migraine on Tuesday, and then had what turned out to be a totally unproductive day on Wednesday for no particular reason. The house did get cleaned though, so there's that. However, I was determined to finish this painting!

Not only did I finish my painting today, I also figured out how to work the interval programming in my camera for an extended time-lapse session. Then I figured out how to make it into a video, and then I figured out how to post it!

So, without further ado my new YouTube channel for Kyra Wilson Studio can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/user/KyraWilsonStudios

I fully intend on posting many painting videos. I have the test below, it's only 40 seconds long, but I was able to see how it all worked (and once you get to the part when I'm working on the cat it gets more interesting.) It really let me see how it was all going to work, and I cannot wait to work on a painting from start to finish with it and see how it looks. The next video will actually be of the first painting in my Alice series which has been sitting on the back burner for quiet awhile. Unfortunately, I have started some painting on it, however there is a long way to go just yet, so it still should make for an interesting video. We'll have to see how long these videos end up being, and where I'll need to cut them down. I'm sure YouTube has a time-limit, I just haven't looked it up yet.

Here is the test video I made today:



 And here is the finished painting:



"Haunted Evening"
9 x 12 x 0.75", Gallery wrapped stretched canvas, sides painted.

I'll post it for sale once it's dry, but because it's oil, it's going to be awhile. However, I am very happy with how it turned out, and I'm extremely excited to move onto my Alice series and some of my others, as well as documenting a few with the time-lapse!
