A Watercolor Time-Lapse Video—My first!

Last week recorded my first-ever watercolor painting demo video and uploaded it onto my YouTube channel as a time-lapse video. It was fun to do and a bit exciting to see the result!

I painted this watercolor demonstration in about 30 minutes and the time-lapse video of the painting process ended up being just under 3 minutes.  The painting is a landscape of the Blue Ridge Mountains with green tree branches in the foreground. I plan to create more watercolor painting videos in the future, so I'm definitely interested in hearing what kind of demos and paintings fans of my art would like to see!

As is always the case when I try something new, I learned a lot from my first watercolor demo video. For instance, the work is far from over when you're finished recording the video. I gained a lot of new video-editing skills as I learned to adjust cropping, lighting, and colors in Photoshop CS6 (luckily it's very much the same as editing photos, once you learn the ins and outs of working with videos in Photoshop), as well as how to create and join other video clips and images together. It was so much fun and I can't wait to do more with my new abilities!

So after you watch the video below, please leave your thoughts in the comments. Let me know how I'm doing so far and what you'd like to see in the future!
