Sightline Time-lapse Animation

Five months of hand-painted circles on the eight foot canvas “Sightline” are compressed into these two minutes of time-lapse animation.  Even though the resulting video looks like speed-painting, what’s going on in the studio is pretty carefully considered!

I made this video as a diy instant-replay for myself, hoping to learn something that will make me a better painter. The resulting clip is fascinating for several dramatic changes to the painting and the many layers of paint it reveals.

Here is a link to Photographs of the finished piece installed and more about the painting.

A Stop-Animation Experiment

This stop animation was shot as I was finishing up work on the painting “What the Thunder Said.”  The video shows most of one day’s worth of work on the painting, compressed into 45 seconds.
