Oil Painting Video Demo: Flowers

Watch artist David R Darrow as he paints some flowers.

By

Watch over David R. Darrow's shoulder as he paints one of his daily paintings, of a pair of Ixia flowers. He uses time-elapse video to speed things up, so don't think you ought to be painting at this speed! (There isn't any sound on the video, by the way, it's not that your speakers aren't turned up far enough.) You can read more about the inspiration for the Ixia painting on David's blog, Everyday Paintings (everydaypaintings.blogspot.com), but I recommend watching the video first as otherwise it'll spoil the fun of watching the painting evolve from a few mysterious brush strokes into the completed flowers.
