As you may be aware, I have been a busy bee in the studio, writing a mixed media book, as well as putting the matching e-course together…
Although it’s a lot of work, the experience has been interesting and amazing, and a big learning curve!
It’s so easy to slip into a routine and just do the same things day in and day out (especially when you’re cooped up in a home-based business) so a new project every now and then is what keeps me energised and excited 🙂
However… You would think that, because this book will be photo-based (I want to show you how to create paintings from start to finish so that means a LOOOOOT of photos!), that, writing a mixed media book would be easier than writing a huge novel for example, right? I just need to take photos of everything, place them on pages and done? Hem, well… no.
There is so much more involved!
– I need to create the paintings
– take photos throughout the process
– film the process
– edit all the photos in Photoshop
– place them in the book
– write instructions for every single photo (each project will have at least 36 photos and explanations)
– format and design the book
– create the videos and of course do the video editing
and that’s not even talking about marketing lol
Phew. It definitely is a full time job.
And actually, probably more than one person’s job but hey, I’m French and very stubborn 🙂
So now you know why I have a been a little quiet lately!
Because I am writing a mixed media book (and filming videos) for you, the beginner artists, I would love to know if there is ANYTHING specific you’d like to learn in this book? A technique, a style, something you struggle with…? Tell me your thoughts in the comments below and I may be able to address them 🙂
At present, I have created 5 chapters (so 5 paintings from start to finish)!

With love and sunshine,
