Process when starting a new painting


hello hello hey hello hello! on this
video today I want to share with you a bit of what goes behind when I’m
starting a new piece, usually before starting in the actual paper that I’m
going to be painting I do a bunch of freeform work on my sketchbook this is
one of my favorite parts of my creative process as usually it’s very raw it’s
very free, I take my sketchbook with me wherever I’m going maybe nature maybe a friend’s house, maybe the train and just the fact that they´re tiny
sketchbooks it makes me feel free, makes me feel I can just play around. I
like to work on a few pages at the same time, I really like to try out different art
supplies, maybe something I have in my studio that I haven’t used for a while
or maybe I’ll hit the art supply store and grab something that I haven’t tried
before. these usually brings a lot of inspiration to me. I also like to work
with some texts: maybe the music that I’m hearing really inspires .e when I was
working on this few pages in my art studio I was listening to a song by DJ
Koze and Jose Gonzales called “music on my teeth” and in this case a phrase by
Alan Watts that was mentioned in this song was what really inspired me to work on
this blue background painting and what really detonated what would be my new
painting, usually I developed more around this painting. I may not put this on the actual painting, as this isn´t a sketch for it, but I just
start doing a bunch of different work around how I’m feeling, how this is
making me feel, like the energy that I want to bring around this piece. sometimes I also play with my
magnifying glasses to see my paintings from another perspective to maybe slow
down a little this process, to always remember to enjoy the process and not
only think about how the painting will look at the end. this is the part where the pallet that
I’m going to work with kind of develops. I develop the vibe that I’m
feeling around this painting and you know, sometimes things might
change when I’m working on the actual piece but I feel these little ones are
also paintings and pieces that are finished by themselves. When I’m painting
I’m also imagining how this painting moves. they’re always
moving, they’re always dancing, they’re always creating themselves so I’ve
started to do some digital animation around my paintings too, just to give the
observer kind of the idea or the feeling that I get when I’m painting them. every single dot is a whole universe,
it’s a whole planet in itself but then looking from far away it’s also just a
tiny little dot, just a little atom, and I can’t get enough of sharing this
with you guys, I feel it’s so mesmerizing all the energy and all the information
that is required in order to create everything around us and within us if you’re creating something I hope that
you never forget the importance of the process, the importance of having fun and the importance of doing things that resonate with your heart thank you so much for watching and I’ll
see you on my next video, bye
