The watercolor painting "Sunlight is Free (if you live at the top)" was created by JeffJag in 2014. This is the first artwork I created after finishing the pencil drawing Amazing Realization, also featured on my channel.
This video is part of the #AwesomeOctober 2014 annual promotion and donation drive I do on this channel. This year, my charity is the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. I'm giving back for all the inspiration they've given me over the years by donating $50 + 20% of all October proceeds so I can send 10 kids on a field trip to the museum. It's not much, but if you donate too, it can be a lot more. If you do, select "in honor of" and copy/paste this: JeffJag Abstract Art Science + Art is a win for the good guys!
This painting was completed over 5 drawing sessions in April and May of 2014. The original is painted on a 20″ × 14″ Arches Hot Press Watercolor Block using Dr. PH. Martin's Radiant Concentrated Water Colors and a new brand called QOR watercolors made by Golden Artist Colors, which were given to me as a gift.
I shot this video using a Canon 70D on a tripod connected to my laptop via USB. I recorded each image using the EOS Utility remote capture function along with a wireless shutter controller called the Pixel Oppilas which operates over 2.4ghz wireless frequency. The original images in the time-lapse are captured at 20 megapixels, or 5,472 x 3,648 pixels. My drawing desk is surrounded by color balanced studio lighting so the colors you see in this time-lapse are real. The painting really is that vibrant and bright.
The narration is me, Jeff Jagunich, but the recording of my vocal performance has a cool story. I always have these really great, deep conversations with my old friends from high school. These guys are basically my brothers. So I had a nice long phone conversation last night with Nathan Janos, a true genius of algorithm programming with a powerful intellect and spirit. Unbeknownst to him, I set up my ZOOM H1 handy recorder in my room and hit record before I called him. The recorder only picked up MY side of the conversation, but it resulted in a very candid and natural open-minded feel. It seems very conversational because it was actually just one side of a conversation. I've thought a lot about abstract art and creativity and I thought it would be fun to talk that out with a guy who I knew would be open to really dig in and discuss it with me. I'm very happy with the way it came out.
The musical portion of the soundtrack was created in Propellerhead Figure on iOS as multiple tracks based on the same beat that I edited together with all the narration clips in Adobe Audition.
The intro motion graphic was designed and rendered in Cinema 4D r15 at the same 3840x2160 resolution as the 4K video. The sequence was composed, edited, and rendered using the H.264 codec high profile 5.1 at 35 mbps bitrate for video and 320kbps bitrate for the aac audio.
