Behind the Scenes While I Work

Last week I did a quick paper cut piece as both a warm up and a painting experiment using acrylic ink. I shot two time lapse videos with my iPhone during the cutting process, and then during the painting process and shared these on Instagram. It’s a great way to step back from my own process and see it from an outside perspective.

I especially love the painting video because it makes me seem better at applying paint than I actually am. I paint very little so I was nervous about sharing this part of the process.

The finished piece is 9″ x 9″, hand cut from white paper painted with red acrylic ink.
