Failed Experiment? | Turtle Oil Painting Timelapse (Sketch)


[Music] hi guys and welcome back to my channel this painting is a sketch for one of my major projects about mass tourism and how it affects small island ecosystems I wanted to try out oil paints as I am not too familiar with them and I needed to experiment how it looked like at this point of my project I was trying to see how different alcohols react with different sorts of paint so I used vodka as a thinner for the oils here and I also sprinkled salt on the canvas and poured some Bacardi on it the effects I was going for they didn’t really happen but I still wanted to share this video to show you that art projects are often a result of a lot of experimenting not every painting or experiment you do is a success you just need to see it as a part of your process one step closer to the final result that is yet to be created let me know in the comments the last time you experimented with medium but it just didn’t work out what did you learn from it please don’t forget to like the video and subscribe to my channel on your way out [Music]

  1. Nooooo not the Bacardi lol , that was fun to watch, I love experimenting and have lots of fails but I love trying , looking forward to the next video 😊

  2. It wasn't a fail, its really good! I have never thought about mixing anything like salt or alcohol with oil paints but yeh, I am not overly familiar with oils either. 😃

  3. Very interesting to watch you experiment with those special "materials". I believe it smells truly good when you paint.🍸😊

  4. Yes. I agree. We all need to except that our art sometimes has its own mind. And that sometimes it turns out worse but sometimes even better then planned. 🙂

  5. I don't think it was a fail if you learnt from this experiment, it's always good to try new things. I've only tried alcohol and salt with watercolours, I've never heard of it being used with oils before. Love the colours you used for this.

  6. Ella, my dear…you are so sweet … you're right about the process of creating, not every thing turns out the way we want, but still beautiful ways😍

  7. Thanks for sharing this video, Ella. 🙂 It's so true that we should try to embrace what we perceive as failures as part of a learning process. With every single piece, good outcome or not, we are learning and progressing in our journey in some way, shape or form. Big like!

  8. It still came out beautiful! Love the textures! It’s amazing what we can create with alternative tools/mediums. Great art comes through exploration. 💜

  9. I like to think of all of my art as an experiment! If it doesn't turn out then I know not to do that next time. I guess experience is a great teacher.
