Opus Art Supplies Filming In My Studio

Autumn Leaves
(The Movie Star Card)
5x7" card

Yesterday, Opus Art Supplies filmmaker Ryan Mund, along with his assistant, Peter, came into my studio and filmed me painting. This filming will become a how-to video for Opus on their YouTube channel.
This video shows some simple watercolor tips and techniques for painting a greeting card on Strathmore watercolor cards. Since the video will be released later this month, I chose to paint autumn leaves using all those yummy fall colors that Daniel Smith and Winsor & Newton carry.

It was a full day of filming and I was able to try some new products out.
One of these products is Nicholson's Peerless Watercolors.
The Peerless comes in bottles in liquid form and in dry form on sheets. The paint is extremely vibrant and colorful. The sheets were fascinating and look like they will be great for doing plein air painting and to travel with. The color from the sheets seemed just as vibrant as the colors in the bottles. They are definitely worth more investigation. I can't wait to do some plein air painting with them!

Ryan did a great job of making me feel comfortable and was very informed about watercolor.

Thank you guys for such a great day!

Of course I will let everyone know when the video is released.
