Catch Your Breath – Painting timelapse video (Studio Time 20)

by | Blog - Tutorials, My life as an artist | 10 comments

Painting timelapse video of the birth of a painting…

Every now and then, you need to CATCH YOUR BREATH because life can be such a rollercoaster, right???

Watch the (very sped up) painting timelapse video below to see how this painting developed, from an unfinished canvas into a stunning (if I may say so myself!) mixed media painting full of colour, light and meaning (click here to find out more about it).

I am really excited about how this painting turned out and it goes to show (as I always say) that, it’s worth leaving a painting alone for long as you need if it doesn’t feel right 😉

  1. I just watched your Catch Your Breath video and loved it. I also love the open circle stencil and looked online but couldn’t find it. Would you mind sharing where I can buy it? thanks. I am ordering your book.

      Thank you so much Jeanie!

  2. Just want to thank you again for sharing your videos etc. I love watching the progression and am always amazed at the process. About a quarter of the way in I’m always like “…what? where is she going with this?” always knowing it’s going to look great at the end, but still always amazed. 🙂 the depth created by all those layers just makes me smile. 🙂

      hahaha thank you for your feedback Janice! I love hearing what people think 🙂 Sometimes I don’t know either how it’s going to turn out (and sometimes I have to paint over, hence this video example!) but I have faith 😉 xx mimi

  3. Love watching your creative process. I, too, am amazed that you do everything with your fingers! You definitely are very talented!! Thanks so much for sharing and I am looking forward to the next video.

      Thank you for stopping by Sharon! I spent years painting with a brush but fingers are so much fun hehe 😉 Love to you! mimi

  4. Oh my gosh! I love this so much! And seeing the video makes it even more amazing! I love that you don’t use brushes with your paint too! Your work always makes me smile, Mimi ?

  5. Hi Mimi,
    Wow, love your technique, I have watched all your ‘Studio time’ videos for inspiration and just received your book.
    I have set myself up in the spare room and I am really looking forward to getting started.
    Your cheerful positive outlook is as inspiring as your painting.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your work in 2016.
