Old Red Shoe painting in progress movie

This week I am in Virginia on a whirlwind tour of school visits and presentations to teachers. As part of a talk I'm giving for Kindergarten teachers, I put together this painting-in-progress movie of an illustration from What Can You Do with an Old Red Shoe? (similar to the work-in-progress posts you see on my blog). It is so hard to explain how an illustration evolves from sketch to finish, it is so much easier to show...




Check out my first painting-in-progress movie for Priscilla here.

that's so cool. nothing like seeing hours of work compressed into under a minute.
how many pictures did you take to make the movie?

Amazing! How long did the painting take you? I just wonder how many hours were compressed into this movie that's less than a minute long....

thanks! I think I used maybe 30-40 images? the painting took around 3 days off and on, it was small but a lot of little detail.
