VIDEO: Art Slice - My New Weekly Mini Art Video Series

Have you spotted my new weekly mini-video series yet? I've started doing a weekly time-lapse video share on Instagram for all you art and making fans and I'm calling it 'Art Slice' as it is a little slice of my latest art obsession and a peek into whatever I am working on at the moment.

[I do use affiliate links and there are some in this blog post.]

Art Slice Video watercolour watermelon from Kim Dellow

My Art Slice video share has been running for a month now and I have four Art Slice videos for you to catch up on if you haven't seen them yet. At the moment I am pretty obsessed with watercolours so the four shares this month have all been about watercolours, there is a bit of a floral and fruity theme but I've used different ideas, techniques and designs in each video, so I hope they inspire you to get your watercolours out too!

If you want to be the first to get them before they go anywhere else then follow me on Instagram. They then get automatically shared in Facebook so if you prefer using Facebook you won't miss out! But for the full, uncropped video with a list of all the products I've used, which you will find in the 'Show More' section, then subscribe to my YouTube Channel where I have grouped all the Art Slice videos together in a playlist.

At the end of the month I will put a round up of my Art Slice videos here on my blog, in case you missed them during the month.

With this video I've added water first before adding colour to get the lovely spreading effect into the white space that is just under the watermelon skin, it just adds a bit of extra texture.
