Stay At Home Art Projects

This a little bit ad-hoc and related to my contributions to the Watercolour Society of Victoria

As I am experminernting in the world of video conferencing and others ways to stay connected during the extended period of social distancing because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. So for now this is a rag-tag group of ideas that you might like to follow along. Importtantly they will focus on things your alrteadyb have or can find easily.
Say Hello with a Watercolour Postcard

Some background on using Watercolour Postcards as a way to say hello during the COVID19 Isolation. Also how to tear a half sheet of Watercolour paper into 8 postcards, plus a bonus way to store them.

You can also see my occasionaly postcards posted in The Watercolour Victoria Group on Facebook
The "Show & Tell" Series

We are coming out of the Covid-19 restrictions, stay at home, socioal distancing. Whilst that should not ave stopped you marking your art it does make it difficilt to share your art works and collabporate with others. Really the only way has been to embrace technology.

This is a series that grew out of the idea to give those with less on-line experience the confidence and tools to present their art in the best possible way in the digital world. Whilst origoinally the plan was only a single video, it was soon obvious that the topic is broad and severfal much shorter videos would be a better approach.
This first video looks at snapseed, a great little free app for your phone to "touch" up a photograph of your art.
 This video both demostrates how to use LOOM, a browser based tool can be used to make a simple video of your art making and also at the same times shows the steps and software tools I use to create my cartoon characters Alvin & Lila People for my meet the people blog.
An Alternative "Dry" Pallette

This is an old video and originally for my blog post, the challenge of watercolours at the beach.

My approach to watercolour sketching when the conditions get harsh, such as windy and sandy at the beach. I use just a water brush & the derwent inktense blocks in their box as a minimum fuss no extra water alternative. Also a manageable small plien-air painting kit with really intense colours.
