Here’s your first real look at Audio Painting in-depth.
This video covers Looking for My Love (off BEAT TAPES By GratuiTous Vol. 8) which shows you in great detail the mindset you should be having when ARRANGING your song.

So try it out in your own beats!
I usually find the order goes like this:
I usually like to approach audio painting once the beat is pretty much complete.
When I do my WALK AROUND TEST (free podcast), this is where I start trying to be really creative with AUDIO PAINTING, and prepare the listener.
Whether this is using different transitions, or mixing up different instruments from VERSE 1 to VERSE 2.. the WALK AROUND TEST goes hand-in-hand with this audio painting stuff.. it REALLY helps!
