It was my turn to sit at the new Society of Western Artists' gallery in San Bruno. I used the time to explore some digital apps for my iPad to replace the PS Touch app which has been discontinued. I can't find one that has all the features that I have been teaching in the latest workshop I have developed. I did find one that is quite extensive, so I need to rework the curriculum. Technology is amazing but it can be frustrating as well! If you like to play, try iColorama
After I played around with a photo I took of my sister during our trip to Paris, I painted this little painting today. I had saved all the papers from the trip and used them to collage pages in my travel sketchbook. Turns out these papers were from the central market in Florence, not papers from Paris. I loved the graphics they used in the Central Market promotional materials and signage upstairs in the restaurant areas. The papers were heavier than I usually glue down so I used a stronger solution of mat medium. The watercolor resisted at first but I finally was able to get it to stick. Interesting melding of the papers and paint.
