Restarting The ART – ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ

Restarting The ART – ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ


Hello, hello, hello. Today I want to talk
about ART, which is why I’m wearing a very weirdly patterned shirt (which I love). So
I have loved art since the beginning of my existence, here I am creating a masterpiece. Over the last fourteen years, art has featured
prominently on my YouTube channel here. Be it showcasing projects at school, old-fashioned
time-lapses or me generally just being creative. I studied it through GCSE’s into College,
followed by University. I mean, I am summarising, but that’s a general gist. I wanted to go to Art School, I wanted to
pursue art to the ends of the earth, but my life didn’t go that way for various reasons,
including mental health. By the time I got to University, I was struggling to live, let
alone pursue my passions. And that combined with a bad course I was on, destroyed my love
of art. I walked away. I boycotted it for several years. I didn’t pick up a paintbrush
at all. That happens a lot in my life, my anxiety (my mental health) creates barriers
around the things I wish I could do. Hmm. And then after 3-4 years, in 2015 I decided
to try again, to come back to art and that’s when I set up my art channel. One of the reasons for setting up at art channel
specifically is because I thought it would motivate me more to create more, give me something
to focus on, which it did. Over the course of a year and a half, I built up an art business.
I produced videos, time-lapses, also vlogs on various subjects I was fascinated by. But there was a point when I said to myself:
I’ve got all these channels running simultaneously, I’ve got other things in my life going on.
I can’t maintain everything. So it sort of came to a halt. There’s other reasons, like low self-esteem
and me personally finding art videos harder to create. They knock me out of the motion
of creating art when I’m simultaneously filming myself. But also other social media mediums)
are far quicker to share. Like, Instagram for example. There’s lots of reasons why the
channel came to a halt. And then, three years later, James came into
my life and when he discovered my passion for art and how it was dwindling a bit…
he motivated me. He got me painting again. That’s not to say he is the reason why I’m
painting now, no, I was painting before we were dating but his encouragement definitely
helped. That’s one of the reasons why I liked him
so much because, I showed him a photo of a painting mid-painting and he was fascinated
by it. Even now, he is ecstatic when I’m painting, he encourages me to paint. I couldn’t ask
for more. So as James was encouraging me, he introduced
me to Twitch. I can’t say it. *Twich*. Twitch like Trich. I mean, he’s a gamer and knows
the platform inside out, he can do coding. I sound so immature, he is intelligent and
I hate it. So he helped me establish a Twitch profile
and then instead of doing vlogs and timelapses of my content. I’ve been doing art streams
over the last year. Not too frequently, but frequently enough. So then my art channel just evolved into Twitch
streams, I’m not unhappy about that. But then I sort of backed myself into a corner
of doing all these Twitch streams and not creating the art content I used to. I didn’t
feel I could do both, which is leading me to the conundrum I am in right now. My main channel is all over the place, I mean,
it’s not a branded channel, it’s just me talking or videoing my life at times. And it covers
so many subjects. Part of me wants to bring art back here. I sort of want to reclaim my passion in the
format that I grew up with. Not make it the core focus of my channel, but is a HUGE part
of my life that is missing from here. Maybe just keep the art channel for Twitch streams.
I mean the streams that are broadcast on Twitch and then go onto YouTube, that’s what I mean. So before I go, my channel is not converting
to an art channel, but I do want to incorporate art more into the stuff that I’m creating.
And last of all, I will put some links downstairs below to my Pinterest, with loads of boards
for art and cats and other things. My art Instagram, my art store which will
be coming back in September. Its temporarily on holiday because I’ve had to move out because
of the renovation. And thank you for all the encouragement in the last three years, in
particular, the art, you guys are fantastic, especially on Patreon. Right, I am going to go, this has been so
odd, sorry, just indulge me. Bye.

  1. I would love to see more of your art on your main channel! I donโ€™t think I knew you had an art specific channel, or if I did, maybe I found out when I had burned myself out on art and was taking a mental break. Anyway, Iโ€™m also getting back into art, and itโ€™s really exciting to see how completely youโ€™ve re-embraced your passion and are incorporating it into your online presence.

  2. First off: I love your art and second: you're amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’• I hope you have a good day and keep being you! ๐Ÿ’–

  3. I always knew James was one of the good guys ๐Ÿ˜Ž I have a friend who's struggling and stopped painting. Still trying to get her back to it.

  4. Oh Becky !
    You truly brighten my day
    Whenever you post I feel like everything will be ok… I know thatโ€™s weird
    But I just feel like your a sister to your subscribers …
    You always have the best positivity and advice ๐Ÿ™‚
    ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ‘‘

  5. He is intelligent and I hate it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ you always make me laugh so relatable. I quit art for two almost three years and a year ago o started again and it hard I felt like I had to relearn everything. good luck on your art journey

  6. Hi I don't usually comment on channels but love your content. I now how you feel about art I used to love to draw and pain and actual only got a qualification in art in school but like you I have mental health problems and just completely forgot about it my mental health is slowly getting better with the one off bad moments I still haven't picked up a pencil to draw but now I have found I love to paint old furniture I find it really relaxing for me I now how mental health is always a struggle and every day can be a challenge just to get out of bed sometimes. Anyway love your channel and your a fantastic artist.

  7. Arrrrrt. I'm a fan of your paintings. Also, I've started sketching again, and people are nice enough to tell me it's good. So I'm excited. Lovely to hear from you.

  8. I would love to watch more art on this channel. What you create is absolutely amazing. And I have 3 paintings you made in my own home which I love so much.

  9. Hello, just to let you know that James is currently reading through the comments, he's enjoying himself ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. Viktor and Rolf should have a look at your painting and change the packaging of Bonbon and use your painting !!! It's just amazing

  11. Good to see you Beckie. Nice to hear you talking about your art. Reclaim that which is missing. Much happiness to you.

  12. I'm suscribed because of you, your personality and content. If you'd like to add more art here, I'm sure we will all enjoy it

  13. You would make a Great Editor for making a BlockBuster Movie… I Believe You can do It, Beckie, Just set Your Mind to It! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Rebecca Brown hot or not? = HOT (combination result – physical, spiritual, intellectual) James = one hell of a lucky guy!

  15. It's very disheartening to grow up loving art, go to school for it, only to find the career field SO difficult to get in to. I wasn't properly prepared in University, so I don't have a lot of the required knowledge/skills; not to mention that this industry thrives on WHO you know, not WHAT you know. Mental health issues follow on quite quickly when it comes to art. I have a half finished painting that's been sitting in my closet that I can't bear to look at since it only reminds me of how disappointing I am. Sending you all the good vibes, Rebecca! Can't wait to see what beautiful canvas's you create in the coming year(s). โค๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ˜ธ

  16. I've always loved your art! I have some prints from your etsy and a small canvas you sold on depop back in the day and I love them! โ™ก

  17. 1:01 I understand this so well ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™‚ Those things I love love love are things I can't do (or things I would love to do to better me in the things I love) when I am having a hard time battling anxiety. – Which seems to be a massive battle for the past ten years. – Like, massively cutting me off from life. For weeks at a time, and often. I feel like I have been having a constant panic attack, if we add it up, for like 9 years and 10 months out of the past 10 years.

  18. I love that your main channel is all over the place! I LOVE that it's not branded! I love how there are so many topics, so refreshing!

  19. Hey Beckie! – first of all, thank you to share this with us. I just want to say that your art is amazing, seriously.

  20. Rebecca dear, I do love your art. I may just purchase one just as a reminder of you. You are TRULY my FAVORITE youtuber, human being, soul. An INSPIRATION. Wish you'd come back near NJ (right under NY). I'm patiently hoping you would enable your fan mail again. Have some cool things for you. You're a ๐Ÿ’Ž on display.

  21. You should check out this art YouTube Baylee Jae she takes the art thatโ€™s on twitch and makes it into a video make be you can do the same thing for you art Channel

  22. I love this SO MUCH. I'm currently going through a similar thing creatively – for this year my mental/emotional health has been plummeting, and it's been really difficult to do things like write or make music amidst that. Which I've kinda hated. My fiancรฉe has been really encouraging me to get back into it, but it's been hard. I'm having a go at it – but even when I have so much time on my hands (I've had to cut work down because of where I'm at), I'm finding it difficult.
    Don't worry about your channel being all over the place and having no focus. That's just people sometimes. To some, variety is the spice of life; to others, like me (and I'm guessing you), variety is life! So it's not a bad thing that that's represented on the channel. Keep being awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I would love to see more art on here. I always watch these videos but I sometimes miss updates in other places. I love what art I have seen of yours. Sending lots of love. ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’›

  24. I don't mind at all that your channel covers many different subjects! As long as you're still enjoying covering all that stuff keep it coming ๐Ÿ˜€ You do you girl I love your content and so glad you found joy again in painting <3 (Your bae sounds very sweet I'm glad you found a good egg ^. ^ )
