I went to our Nature Park to do a little plein air watercolor painting. I wanted to steak out the locations for our Frost Fest Plein Air Outing this weekend. I will probably do an acrylic painting on Saturday. It will be nice this weekend too, but hopefully the snow won’t be all melted.
I think using the IPad for Life Drawing works well. I was able to get the figure done in the 1.5 hour session, and I did the chair and background at home.
I used the Art Set Pro app on the ipad, because it behaves very close to natural media. I like the color pencil for drawing, and for coloring and shading I like the oil pastel, and paint. I manipulated it with the eraser, rag and water tools. I used a Wacom Bamboo Stylus.
We haven’t had our models pose nude much over the winter, as it is colder in the room. Spring is here! Wished I would have used the dark brown pastel instead of the black. I didn’t look closely at what I was picking up. 10″x 18″ pastel on paper
Today is my Dad’s Birthday, he would be 78. He passed away 3 years ago. This is a picture I drew of him as a child, when I was in High School. My Dad liked to draw horses from memory.
When I was a kid, I enjoyed watching him work with wood. I played in his saw dust, with the smell of cedar in the air. On the right is a picture of the grandfather clock he made. All of it’s parts are wooden, right down to the walnut screws. There isn’t any metal. The weight is a rock, because wood wasn’t heavy enough. It’s stands about 8ft tall, running with a wooden tick tock.
He inspired me to be what I am today! Happy Birthday Dad!
