Alleyvision is collaborative painting couple, Bill & Heather Alley (aka HAWA) who live in North East Portland and who know how to have fun with art. They have a great YouTube channel in which they open their studio, show you their art process, and share the art they've had a great time creating. They also have many video tutorials for pour painting projects as well as other art and craft projects. They are high-spirited, enthusiastic and amusing, making it fun to hang out with them as they paint.
Tell us briefly about your art:
We are oil painters, we paint intuitively and at the same time on the same canvas. We specialize in landscapes, figurative expression and abstracts. Our goal is to inspire others to discover and use creativity as a tool of self discovery and enlightenment.
What is your main medium of art?
What are your website and links?
Please share your techniques & tips with us:
Because we paint together we have learned not to take ourselves so seriously, it's just paint! You can always go back till you have it right. Being open to not being good at something at first, allows you to move forward in your experiences and expressions, without the self abuse or sabotatge.
Make sure you check out more of Alleyvision's art on their YouTube channel, chock full of fun art projects, and their Instagram account. They have started to open up their studio on the weekends to the public. Follow their Instagram account to know when the next one is.
