This 9 minute time lapse speed painting video shows the creative process of a beautiful Devon landscape painting from start to finish. Working from a photograph of Haytor on Dartmoor we arrive at an attractive realistic painting.
The various stages are explained through captions. It was painted in acrylics on 30x40cm Hahnemuhle fine art cardboard using a selection of 6 brushes and a no.5 palette knife.
The sky was painted with a 1 inch household brush. The clouds were scrubbed in with a well worn no.8 bristle brush and a no.6 round brush.
The rocks were developed using the palette knife and a liner brush. For the grass and bushes I made use of a no.4 flat bristle brush plus a well worn no.6. Details required a no.1 liner brush.
The colours used were Daler Rowney System 3 Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Blue, Red, Umber, White, Lemon Yellow, Ochre, and very little Phtalo Green.
The painting took some 12 hours to complete.
With some slight adaptations this will work with both oils and acrylics.
