I suspect that you think this video is about something it's not. This video deals with the fact that I'm not invited to my father-in-laws wedding not some marriage debate but a personal issue. Though it would apply for that as well. So if you rate it down because you disagree with gay marriage you are missing the point.

In this video I work on a page in my journal called Searching for Why.
I started with a base of red acrylic. I then swiped it with some walnut ink pad. I sketched the couple in really quickly and then blocked in the image with gesso. Then the black of the suit went in. Then layered some watercolor pencil in for the faces. I wanted them to look sort of vapid and hollow. I made the circles with a compass.

The blue circles are made of blue and black paint mixed with matte medium to make a transparent glaze. I used 2 brushes tapped together with wet paint on it to splatter paint on to the page. I first wrote the words on with my pentouch white marker and found that it isn't working well, as I've used most of it up. I'm burning through pens like crazy. I went over that with white liquatex ink on a liner brush..
