Well, I took the plunge and picked up a fancy new phone that can take time lapses. Since a few of you were asking for wip shots of my sketching process, I decided to capture one on camera for my first video. As you can see it's pretty spontaneous and energetic…both things I want to see more of in my paintings. I'm using #panpastel and a battery powered eraser. #drawing #process #artistsoninstagram #timelapse
