I've been watching home makeover shows my whole life and my favorite part has always been the classic painting-of-the-walls timelapse. It's just so satisfying to see a room change color in 30 seconds or less.
Since I've made it my life's mission never to paint my own walls again (the taping, the trim, droploths... I just cannot), I thought I'd share with you a good old-fashioned timelapse of how I made one of my favorite paintings. In real life it took many many hours, but through the magic of the internet you'll see it all come to life in a few short minutes.
I usually start by mixing paint color, but this one stole my heart right out of the tube. I apply loosely with a palette knife then follow up with a brush to get those painterly, improvised brushstrokes. Next I choose my thread colors. I'm a big follower of my intuition when it comes to art making, especially when it comes to color. I try to make decisions quickly and not overthink too much. Once I'm all set with colors, I draw some guidelines and get to stitching.
