5627 individual photos were taken at one per second for a total duration of 94 minutes. The photos were then sped up to 10 per second to produce the video. The camera was never stopped the entire time, even when I was talking with passersby.

The painting is 8×10, oil on board. The palette consisted of: Ultramarine Blue, Cobolt Blue, Quinacridone Red, Cadmium Red Medium, Sap Green, Transparent Iron Oxide, Cadmium Orange, Yellow Ochre, and Cadmium Yellow light. Two Silver Ruby Satin brushes were used, a #8 Filbert and a #8 Bright.
