Using EVERY SINGLE Paint Tube I OWN!

Using EVERY SINGLE Paint Tube I OWN!


Hello there! So, have you ever been in the situation where you’re – one of your favorite art supplies goes on clearance? Because I just experienced that. And my bank account also experienced that. Basically, my favorite paint is the Liquitex Heavy Body professional quality paint, but these tubes are very expensive. They normally run from like, between 7 and 14 dollars a tube and my local art shop clearanced them out. This one for example, was $1.78. And you know, that little voice in my head was just like (Chloe, OC): BUY ALL OF THEM! Where the heck did that come from? Also, please excuse the plastic bag. This was unfortunately sent to me in a package and I didn’t want it to go to waste so I’m now keeping all of my paints in there. So I already own a few of these paints as it is and I just thought it would be really fun to combine the ones that I bought with the ones I already own, and just make painting with every single acrylic paint that I own because – (Chloe, OC): THAT’S WHAT NORMAL ARTISTS DO. Would you stop? (Chloe, OC): No. Let’s make some art! *Lightning sound effects* Okay, so this is my little container for my favorite paints right here. I’ve used these Liquitex Heavy Body paints for a few months now, I want to say. There are 12 different colors in here and I pretty much never stray from these specific 12 colors. I also have some Gesso, I have some varnish, um, but yeah, those are the colors I currently have. So, I never actually counted how many paints that I picked up. *Epic music* *Music stops* *Music continues* Ok, I just counted all of the paints that I bought and the grand total is 38. So in total, including ones I already had, I have 50 different colors of acrylic paint that I need to use in one painting. So let’s get started. So I’m gonna use an 8×8 canvas today just because I like smaller canvases. But it’s not too small, it’s like a good size, between it’s – it’s medium. So it’s like between big and small. So then I’m going to actually organize these by color to make sure that I use all of them. *Paint tubes hitting desk* Ok, so this is what they all look like lined up. I put them all in like, shade order. Where is the paint I need? *Background music* Ok, so while I painted quickly at the start here I just wanted to mention that today’s video is being really kindly sponsored by Wix. I haven’t got any white. Where’s my white? There it is. Now Wix is basically a platform that allows you to build your own website. Wix is incredibly professional and robust. I personally use Wix for my online portfolio website as well as an online shop. Speaking of, by the way, when this painting is done, if you would like to purchase it, if you check out the link in the description that will take you to my Wix website and you can buy it on there but I honestly love using Wix. It saved me so much money over the past a few months purely because every other platform I’ve ever used to sell all of my work on I’ve always been charged like a 5% fee, a 10% fee. Wix isn’t like that. You can build a portfolio, you can build an e-commerce web store, um, and it’s just great to use if you are an artist or you’re just someone that has their own business or you want to build a personal brand. You can actually use hundreds and hundreds of their templates, have unlimited pages, all of it for free, but if you did want to upgrade to one of their premium plans, which I highly recommend you can actually get 15% off with my code, chloerose, in the description. So thank you so much to Wix for sponsoring today’s video. So uh, this week on “What Does Chloe Have on Her Head?”, I have a hair band with Donald Duck’s plushy feet on them because it was holding my hair out of my face. And the paint. So it took me a good hour before I actually realized that they were still on my head. I just realized I’m sat here with Donald Duck ears on. Do you see these? I totally forgot I had them on my head! So, um, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Chloe, that is a very well rounded ball that you have painted!” And I would have to disagree with that because I think it’s a very very wonky uneven ball that I’ve painted there. Also, you might be wondering why I had all of this array of colors and I decided to go for something that had a blue sky and a blue ball and blue water. But it does get a little bit more colorful, you will see. Actually, what I found really good about this challenge, can I call it a challenge? It’s kind of a challenge, but not really a challenge, you know because I’m using paint that I love and I’m painting, so I do enjoy it. But what’s nice about it is that I have different shades of colors but I can actually use those different shades to mute other colors. So for example, mixing blue with orange, I can kind of mute the bl- the blue a little bit but still be using that orange color even though you can’t see it so while you are staring at a lot of blue right now, you’re also staring at various shades of orange that I have combined into it. So I didn’t want to really make something super colorful because I could just, felt that would look silly, says the girl with Donald Duck ears on her head, but still I wanted to like, bring my idea to life. You know? And I suppose I should kind of explain what this is actually supposed to be. So I am really trying to get into more, like, environmental pieces and be a bit more about the environment in real life as well. So my overall style is making more like, whimsical things as opposed to realism with acrylic painting. So the idea behind this was to have a MOON, a nice big yellow MOON, that seems to have its own glowing internal source, which is not actually how it works in the real world but we’re just pretending that’s how it looks. And I wanted to make it look like the moon was actually in the water and I was actually really concerned for a very long time that the moon actually looked like it was supposed to be reflecting on the water and it just looked like I’d made a really BAD reflection on the water. But I think towards the end I kind of achieved what I hoped to, at least I hope I did. Does that look like a rock at the bottom of the sea? I can’t really tell. You be the judge! Does it look okay? I can’t tell! I don’t want it to look like a really shoddy like, reflection on the water because it’s supposed to actually be dunked in the water because again, that’s definitely what’s gonna happen in the real world. What the idea behind this was, was to have a visual representation, I sound really artsy fartsy now. But like, an original representation of the environment and rising sea levels because of global warming and also, you’ll notice that I actually put some plastic and garbage in the sea and under the sea to represent the state of the oceans as well. So really, what I did was made a moon that sort of look like a bit of cheese, or a big cookie, that was in the water, to represent the rising sea levels to be like “Oh, no, look what we’ve done to the planet!” It – you know what I mean? I’m trying to like, represent that. So I pretty much put a big bear on the top of the moon, purely because I love bears as you probably all know by now. But I also wanted it to be like, “Look what’s happened to the animals,” you know? “They’re being pulled out of their homes, they’re – they’re struggling and now,” you know, “if we don’t take care of the environment they’re having to like, leave their environments and this one is stranded on top of the moon!” Which again, is a bit more of an artsy take on it. But yeah, that’s what I was going with, I’m not sure if I pulled it off or not, I did work a little bit more on this piece towards the end off-camera because I had like FIVE HOURS of footage. Five hours and I painted a lot off camera too but er, yeah, I managed to get through the paints okay. I was left with a lot of reds though. Six colors left! Six left! And they’re all like orangey reds, but I’ve only got six left! Yes! Because I wasn’t really sure how to implement the reds any more than I already had, so I ended up putting a lot of like, strokes of red on the red plastic cups under the water because it was the only place I could really use the reds up, but I still did it and I’m very happy. I just don’t even know what’s wet or dry anymore, to be honest. Also, do you like my palette for an arm? I hope you like it because that was accidental, but it kind of looks cool. There! That’s all the colors! Every single color, it’s done, but it’s not done. But all the colors are in here so now I can actually finish it without worrying about all of these colors over here so that’s good. So uh yes, this is how it looks. I am actually, it’s growing on me because I felt like it was missing a bit of something but I kind of fixed it a bit off camera and this is just what it turned out like and it was a really fun challenge. I’m really happy with how it turned out, I would really like to hear your opinions on it as well. Also, remember that the original is up on my website, I will have prints for it very very soon. But I’m actually very busy this week because I am going to VidCon! I am very excited for that. If you’re going to that too, then definitely let me know in the comments down below. And yes, thank you so incredibly much for watching this video. I really hope that you enjoyed it, thank you so much to Wix for sponsoring this video today and yes, thank you again for watching, take care of yourselves and I will see you in the next video. *Relaxing end music*
