Painting a Sun

I made this multimedia video artwork of me painting a sun, from my summer inspired series, with animation, music, and a variety of painting and digital editing tools.

My goal was to create an entertaining, light, and upbeat art video to inspire thoughts of summer for both adults and children to enjoy.

Visual Tools and Equipment Used to Create This Work of Art

I painted the sun in acrylics using traditional paintbrushes – the paper I painted on was attached to a drafting table that I turned flat. I filmed the process overhead in high definition using a digital video camera mounted on a jib crane tripod stand and lit with softbox video lighting.

Digital Media Software Used to Create This Work of Art

After the painting was complete, I used a variety of computer software programs, including Adobe’s Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop to manipulate the video images. I used Apple’s Logic Pro to create an original soundtrack of music to go with the moving images.

I hope you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed making it!
