BACK TO WORK!




I take what feels like thousands of photos when I travel and then they sit in my computer.  I am going to make a genuine effort to work with these images until my next trip.  Here are two I did today.  I am pleased that my sense of perspective is getting better.  Faces are easy for me but buildings and architecture is a difficult challenge.  Now to tackle the more complex architecture of the cities Bruges, Brussels and Amsterdam.  

I was excited to receive my advanced copy of STROKES OF GENIUS 3 by North Light Books.  The book is beautiful and full of amazing drawings to inspire us all.  I have one of the few color pieces and you can find it on page 34.

Very beautiful work, Myrna. I would love a little cottage in the trees like this top piece.

I like these, Myrna. When you paint from your photos, do you print them out or do you paint from the image on your monitor?

Hi Bo, thanks for the comment. This area was very close to Bruges but had a very country feel. Quite beautiful and tranquil.

Hi Candy, A very good question! I like to work from my iPad because the color is more beautiful and I can enlarge an area for better clarification if I need. I do print out some images, mostly the portrait faces. I also print out the images if I want to draw WITH the iPad.
