The Making of “Valentine’s” 

A Procreate journey of 3  1/2 hours in 3 1/2 minutes

Although I love showing finished pieces, I also wished to share some of the not so pretty parts of the art process–the gathering of inspiration and references, the twists, the taking out, the putting back in–in short, all the stages of a piece. I hope it’s encouraging to see that artists don’t do things right the first time. We just know how to erase, (or the 2 finger tap,) really, really well. LOL!


Please visit all the art in Vincent’s Chamber and beyond at Winterfest 2024
