Join me, Traci Bautista, as I share a peek inside my painting studio and creative process. In this video, I take you on an artwork tour of my idea sketches for my abstract landscape collection and talk through my current body of work that I have been painting over the past few months.
I've been incorporating Williamsburg oil paint into my mixed media artwork and been loving the results. However, I also share the struggles and things that don't work as I explore oil painting experiments with my art.
Many of the pieces start with layers of #tracibautistaCOLOR products, including handmade watercolors and inks along with my pigment bars, and then I incorporate the oils. Throughout the video, I discuss my creative process, including how I choose my color palette, how I build up layers of paint and share a number of abstract background ideas.
As I create a body of artwork, I usually write or record Studio Notes videos where I talk through my creative process and what I worked on in the studio that day. Sometimes these videos include ideas, thoughts, and how I'm feeling about the work. I also talk about the materials and techniques I have played with, along with next steps for my project.
I encourage you to incorporate Studio Notes into your creative practice for yourself as you work on a collection or develop a body of work. They are a great resource to reference especially if your collection development spans several months. It’s always nice to refer back to them or use them to share your process on social media.
In my upcoming live workshop series, ABSTRACT PLAYGROUND, I'll be sharing more about this creative process and teaching all about creating mixed media abstract backgrounds. ABSTRACT PLAYGROUND opens for registration on April 29th, so be sure to sign up and join me in exploring the world of mixed media abstract painting!
Thanks for watching!! 🥰 xo~Traci
