This Nixie taught me to take the time to listen to her.
I usually paint what comes, whatever it is. But this was different, I started the Nixie as a project for ColourArte. And then, I did not really know in which direction to take her. It is not the first time it happens, and it won’t be the last either.
I persisted, however. I am glad I did, because she taught me that it was okay not to hurry a painting. To let her sit for a while until I was ready for her.
I shared with you how I made her rainbow hair using a fun controlled pouring technique and then in the second part I share how I made her face come to life. Doubts creeped in, I waited and waited before just going for it.
I hope you’ll enjoy watching my creative process in these two videos.
PS: would you like more videos like this, on which I let you peak at my brain while creating ?
