How Art Gets Made: Gardening in MarchThis is the process of making the painting "Isolation Gardener" - a self portrait of sorts based on a photo of myself working on a micro garden during our period of isolation due to the Corona virus pandemic. Apart from taking and selecting the source material, the whole process is shown in very compressed form from sketch to finished painting. The music was added later from the YouTube royalty free music library. What I was listening to while painting was probably Shostakovich.
A Petitto Develops a PaintingArtist Andrea Petitto begins with a sketch on a colorful underpainting and takes it through many stages of development. Still unfinished in this video ... more to come!

Starting a Painting Part 1How does an artist get started when confronted with a blank canvas? There are a million different answers to this question. This video illustrates my own strategy for creating an underpainting that I will later use to create a finished painting. The underpainting shown here took 17 minutes from start to finish, but is shown in compressed time here. Tools were, brushes, palette knives, and a Messermeister bowl scraper (found in kitchen supplies).
