Iggy Azalea – Acrylic Speed Painting Video

Hi Everyone,

This is a speed painting video, where you can follow my painting process.
I used acrylic paints from Daler-Rowney and brushes from da Vinci.

I spent lots of time painting this picture…I painted it over and over again, but I am satisfied with the result.

My grid is not that precise, because I didn’t want to spend too much time with measuring and I didn’t want to paint a realistic portrait, so that grid gave me a little bit of support.

TIP:
If you need to draw the outlines or a grid on your canvas, use charcoal instead of pencil. Why? Because you can easily cover it with paint. Pencil drawing is harder to hide, but of course it depends on the paint and pencil as well. Drawing with coloured pencil is still better than drawing with graphite.

High Contrast Video For Babies – Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Hi there,

I am very happy that you are here.

Let me introduce myself:

I am an artist and art teacher and currently working in a nursery full time. Being with infants and toddlers 35hours a week makes me more and more curious what they like to play with, how I can make their play more enjoyable and how I can teach them to improve their skills and extend their knowledge.

This stimulating video is an experiment, so please feel free to comment below :) and tell me if your baby liked it or not, smiled or cried, and how old she or he is.
I really appreciate your help!

Here are some facts about High-Contrast research:

“Babies’ brains don’t work quite the same as adults. There is so much going on in this new world that their brains can become completely overwhelmed. High contrast shapes and patterns provide the baby with something simple and engaging to focus on, and in this focus – or intense concentration – they can allow their minds to rest. High contrast shapes may appear odd or even a little boring to adults, but they are designed to hold babies’ attention and the results from them is breathtaking.” – http://www.huggamind.com

“Babies are said to be “tracking” when they try to follow appealing objects with their eyes. The more appealing the object, the more intense and prolonged the tracking. In the first two months of life tracking is difficult, but not impossible. When you use high-contrast designs like black and white bull’s-eyes that move slowly across your baby’s visual field, he will be able to track with more ease because of his interest in the stimulator.” – http://www.huggamind.com

Video – How I edit my painting in Photoshop CC 2014

Hi there,

it’s me, Yoyo. In this video I show you how I edit my painting (which is about Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, one of the most popular songs in our nursery XD) in Photoshop.

It is not really a tutorial, because I did not speak a lot about the process so sorry about that. I still hope that you will like it and find it interesting.

The original painting was painted with watercolour (by me) on watercolour paper. The watercolour is from Daler-Rowney and the brushes I used are from Windsor and Newton. The paper is: The Langton, Extra Smooth Hot Pressed Grain Satine from Daler-Rowney (absolute favourite!!)

I am selling lovely prints of this painting here in my Etsy shop:

Painted with watercolour and edited in Photoshop.

The gif looked so nice on the website I created but somehow it has changed its quality…never mind, I will do it again soon.

Illustration of Fendi Spring 2015

Fendi’s new spring collection is just amazing, elegant and playful at the same time. Yesterday I have started to make an illustration of a bag, jacket and trousers.

I use acrylic on a 30x40cm canvas. The orchid print reminded me of jungles, monkeys, colourful nature…

Here are some pictures of the process and the original photograph:
