Orange Tree

Orange Tree canvas has been finished and the painting process has been filmed ready for editing.

Unfortunately it has been a while since I have last edited and back then I used a wonderful program called iMovie HD on my old Mac. Our new Mac has iMovie 09 installed on it and and does not make any sense to me whatsoever and judging by all the forums I am not the only one who is frustrated by this.

iMovie HD was close to perfect and Apple decided it would be a great idea to scrap it completely and re-build a new editing suite from scratch. A bit like trying to improve the wheel by giving it right-angles.

I will get the YouTube video done - although it may take me a little longer than anticipated as we need to rebuild the old Mac and re-install the software (including iMovie HD)

It has been about 2 years since I last did a YouTube video so it is long overdue for me to make another.
I am currently halfway through an orange tree trompe l'oeil which I hope to complete tomorrow. Then it will be the simple task of editing all the footage together and uploading it to YouTube.

This piece is also being painted onto a canvas so if anyone is interested I may be selling it at some point.
