Painting tutorial test…

Earlier in the week I had a go at shooting a painting tutorial. Well, I say tutorial… it is in fact just me painting – no voiceover, no captions or descriptions.

Here it is…




So what was the point?

I actually needed to test whether I could get my iPad to sit still long enough to film it, what the quality was like and how comfortable it was to paint around the thing (not very!). In the future I shall speed things up significantly (it gets rather boring watching me paint for 15mins!), I will also add a voiceover or some sort of guide – I will also choose something more visible to paint, the bow is difficult to see I think.

If you can get anything out of it then great – even if it's just to see my messy hobby tray.

Comments welcome as always…

  1. It looked good and obviously would be better with a voiceover and you're a calm careful and good painter!

  2. I was going to ask you about your hobby tray in my email because it's so messy. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Let me know when you do the next one because I'd like to see it.

    1. Haha, yes my hobby tray. It's normally divided with the paints on the left and my tools on the right – the middle area left clear to work on.

      Because I've done a lot of building of new models in the last week (you may see them on the tray shelf in the background) the tools are all over the place. Add to that some new paint pots crowding out the left side and the whole think is a bit of a mess!

  3. You think that's messy? Looked perfectly ordered to me! ;)

    1. It is starting to spiral out of control, hence I couldn't work from it in the video!

  4. For a first attempt at a video, I think it's clear, and the lighting is good. I would be untested to see what kind of close ups you would be able to get with your iPad though.
