inseparable (art recipe video)

i thought it’d be fun to capture how i colour my drawings. i held my digital camera in my left hand, at about cheek level, and recorded part of my colouring. i was listening to superpitcher (“tell me about it”, from kompakt total 6). it was a bit awkward to hold the camera while drawing, but i think it worked out okay.

for a happy colouring afternoon.

UPDATE: i’ve made prints of this drawing, and postcards, available in my SHOP.

    that’s very nice! i couldn’t have figured out that you used so many different colors on the skin. i did a same video-tape the drawing thing once, but it got way too dull i need to find a video editing software to fast-forward through all to be viewable!

    the video was so interesting! I was in fact wondering how is you drawing process with coloured pencils like, because at first I couldn’t believe that many of you drawing were done with coloured pencils.
    I liked the music as well!

    WONDERFUL! it’s always fascinating to me to watch other artists at work – coloured pencil is such a long process, and you do it so beautifully.

    oh, thank you.  that’s so nice of you.
    yes, it takes a long time… sometimes my right hand looks like it wants to run away. i’m bribing her nice colour pencils to keep her interested.
    so far, it’s working :D
