Hello! I painted this little gem and recorded the process. This is the third yearly Santa Baby painting. In the first two years, I painted the same ornament, but I wanted to change it up this year and this little guy was perfect. It also satisfied my desire to paint a snowman too.
Recording this wasn't without issues. I record using an iPad, using several sort clips that I have to upload as I go along otherwise I run out of room on the iPad. I stitch all the clips together when I create the video. Finding the right angle to get a good view is difficult too, but these things will all fall into place as I do more.
The biggest issue I had was loosing my video four times as I worked in iMovie. I cannot stress how stressed I was! I'm putting it mildly when I say that there was a lot of frustration and I felt like banging my head on my desk many times. The worst was the fourth time I lost it. I was done, music and all. I was just inserting the very last tile for the music credits, and boom. My Mac froze and the only way out was to force a quit. Every time I've had to force a quit, I lost everything. Can you imagine my pleasant surprise when I reopened the app and saw my full video there intact? I wanted to dance on my desk!
So, that's my latest adventure in movie-making. And do you think this would deter me from making more? Nope. No way Jose. I'm planning the next one already . . . Stay tuned!
If I don't get a chance to post again before Christmas, please consider this post as my Merry Christmas to everyone. I thank you all so much for your support and for having visited my art blog throughout the last year. Thank you, and many blessings to you and yours! xoxoxo <3
