A funny little painting that started life as one thing and turned into another...The Animation!

I have been contemplating ways to try to share a little more of my process with you. I’ve been toying with the thought of videoing myself, but that seemed like a bit of an overwhelming learning curve!!

Then I discovered this nifty program on My Poppet, via Cam’s post the other day.

So I present to you, my very first animation.

You can see I started out with one idea, didn’t like how it was turning out and just let it evolve.

An Evolution
Kylie Marie Stevens
oil on canvas
30 x 33.9 cm

I’m still not sure if this painting really hits the mark….What do you think? Hit or miss?

Time to pop over to the hostess with the mostest for some creative window shopping on My Creative Space day.


  1. love the animation! all future artworks should be documented for posterity.

  2. I love that. What a clever gadget. Lovely painting too.

  3. I love it..And the process..The painting itself shows lots of movement.

  4. That looks amazing! Definately a hit - depth and movement out of the darkness.(if you know what i mean!)
    Was the animation easy to do? I'm thinking about having a go at some point ...

  5. Hey sweet work with the animation gadget...we must have nearly crossed paths last weekend, I saw your paintings for real at the mumatopia launch and they look even better up close. Beautiful work Kylie!

  6. that's fantastic Kylie, really interesting. I actually really like the line and dots at the start

  7. I love seeing the progress of work, and in a freakish coincidence also posted my first animation today. It's got a very scientific/out-of-this-world feel to it - bound to find it's way to a sci-fi home!

  8. I love the animation, and the painting reminds me of Munch!!

  9. It's so cool to be able to see how your painting progresses from start to finish!

  10. how cool is this kylie!!!! xx

  11. that is quite an interesting way to showcase your WIP..or should I say before and after process. :)


Thanks for dropping by and for leaving me a comment. It brightens my day!
