We reached out to the viewers and engaged them to vote on their favorite owl for the next lesson. Then the best thing happened they did! Lots of votes came in ,it was neck in neck, and in the end we had no choice but to film BOTH owls. O RLY?!!! Yes it is what we did. This however has been the most fun for an edit in the studio ever. Right now my husband does my edits and its hard to get him to be able to sit down with him having a real job and all. But when he does it is amazing what he can do. First of all he loves to laugh with me. He sees the moments when I am being goofy and silly. He just frames then with cut scenes. There have been some great video moments in this lesson.
When you are doing free online step by step tutorials you are in some competitive space on You Tube. So much content is uploaded a second it is hard to float up above the noise. Having a great message and idea to share has helped. But I think its Hart Party's Production value that tips the scales. We just care so much here about what we are doing and who is watching. I know how hard it can be to pick up a brush if you have not in a while and dare to believe you have art inside you. I know that for you this is a big deal. I have loved hearing from the viewers and reading their art stories. I love seeing the artwork. As The Art Sherpa it matters how I bring you these lessons. Because it matters that you have the best chance possible to paint. These are free with no ads for a reason. So that there is nothing between you and your best chance at having a great time painting. We spend time doing the crazy work editing so you can have a laugh and remember it is just art. When I opened my heart to let in my art I let all of you in and I am so glad I did. It is a privilege to share this journey with you
