Timelapse: Playing with Fire

This is a timelapse of my recent digital painting done on my iPad. I think it’s pretty cool one can go back and rediscover or just see the creative process flow in a condensed stream. This painting only took about two hours to complete. Like professional athletes artists can now review their performance. Not that it is a competition but the magic of technology allows us to create in ways that simply are not possible with traditional media. You don’t get instant do-overs and undos with paint or clay. You just have to start over. Technology is allowing me to discover more and practice or try out ideas on a piece without the worry of screwing it up. It does not change the process of creative exploration. It just speeds it up.
