LATEST PLANE AIR PAINTING!

SKETCHCLUB Digital Painting
Just back from a family reunion weekend.  To pass the time on the plane, I like to practice drawing and painting with one of the many art apps I have on my iPad.  Sketchclub is my favorite because it is easy to change settings quickly and they have a setting called "sketchy" that produces a very interesting effect.  I wish I could figure out how to do that with traditional drawing materials.  I selected the largest size for my drawing and it created this very long format.  

Now, to get back into a regular schedule!

Wonderful, Myrna. I'm in an airport at the moment looking for a choice model.

Thanks, Jo. Truth is, my spelling needs spellcheck! but I do like this play on words.

Safe travels, Mary. I printed out an image and took it with me. Sometimes the inboard magazine has an interesting face but lately, nothing. Girl Scout, come prepared.

Willy Nelson, I presume? Beautifully done and I wouldn't have known it was done on a computer, Myrna.

Thanks, Sue!

Hi Sherry, Yes it is Willie. I love his face. I wasn't too happy with the likeness but had fun. The screen on the iPad Mini is a little more difficult than a full size iPad put much more convenient for travel.

Myrna, I love your paintings - wow. Willy looks amazing. I have reading some of your earlier blog posts and was wondering - what is a bozzetto? Is it a type of canvas or board?
Cheers
Sandy

Hi Sandy, A bozzetto in Italian is a small sculpture model. I appropriated the word to describe my small 5 x 7 paintings. This is an idea from Robert Burridge as a way to try out different ideas. I take a half sheet of watercolor and tape off (3) 5" on the 15" side and (3) 7" on the 22" side creating 9 sections. Burridge cuts them apart to work on them but I prefer to keep the sheet in tact. NO RULES! Give it a try.
