Watercolour Galaxy Feathers ~ Video Tutorial

If you know me you'll know I don't do so well at planning things, instead I'm a bit spontaneous in what I blog about and my topics can be all over the place! Well, yesterday I sent up my camera in my kitchen and between doing my usual day to day stuff I filmed a video on how I paint watercolour galaxy feathers. It took me the better part of the day waiting for the videos to transfer off my SD card, then to upload into movie maker, and then to save, and then again to encode it to fit within the measly 100MB that Blogger allows for non-hosted videos. I FINALLY got it ready late last night and here I am today to publish it :-) I had to sacrifice A LOT of quality to get it within the limits and it's hurting my efforts, I'm seriously considering starting a Youtube to host these sorts of things on but I haven't quite been brave enough to take the leap yet. Would you watch me? 

Anyhoo, I don't have a proper mic so for the time being videos recording on my DSLR and then at x2 speed is the way to go. I hope you can follow along if you choose to give it a go! I like doing these quick little things if only for my own purposes; the reason I have this blog is mostly for myself anyway. So I can look back and see what I got up to in future, since I have the memory span of a goldfish these days! Plus it's a nice learning curve for me, I like knowing how to do things. Nothing specifically, just things.
