Today is another first for me. My very first YouTube video of me painting a portrait!!! I cannot believe I actually did it! A few people have encouraged me to make videos to share my painting process and I said I would think about it, but I hesitated, not sure I could do it. There were so many unknowns and question marks. How would I video tape myself? what equipment? how would I set it up? wouldn’t it be stressful to paint while being taped? on and on.
But on this rainy day over the long weekend, I finally got my husband to help me set up my camera, and then I just went for it! I was a little self conscious being taped but after a while I got into the painting zone and forgot about the camera. I did make a mistake in the beginning…. thought it was taping, but it wasn’t (gasp!!). that’s ok, it’s my first one.
Then I had to figure out how to edit the video. But thanks to Google and YouTube, I figured it out!
I still can’t believe it! So proud of myself!
Here is the link if you would like to check it out. Again, I messed up the beginning, but most of the video is there. I even learned to add music to it!:) Hopefully I won’t get awful comments on my video… that’s ok, even if I did, I am still glad I gave it a try. Feels so good to learn something new!
I hope you will enjoy it:)
