Flowers 1.T – and About My Art Shop

Flower paintingAnother one for my flower series.

A while back, I painted this in an app called, “Art Rage”. I’ve printed it onto a lovely %100 cotton paper, and added it to my art I have for sale in my local area. Also, I’ll soon have some art, perhaps a few small pencil and watercolour artworks, available for purchase via my “Shop” page. I have some of art already available online as art prints, and on various items, in my Red Bubble shop, here.

Thought I’d try out the WordPress “Simple” payment system, which uses Paypal. Recently this was even further simplified – great job WordPress! As for promoting my art for sale, not my forte…. so just as well it’s more a fun adventure, than a serious business venture!

Thanks for dropping by; enjoy your weekend!

A Drawing Begun on My Android Phone; and Finished on the iPad.

Drawing of a woman's face

Occasionally, I try out some art apps on my phone. I began this in Autodesk Sketchbook on my Motorola phone. It has a 5 inch screen, just enough room to do a bit of sketching. I draw with my finger, rather than use a stylus. As on the iPad, I can expand the picture area to help with some detail work.  However, with this one I decided to email it to my iPad before doing much detail.  I then saved it into iPhotos.

Next I worked on it again in the Autodesk Sketchbook app, and then did a little more on it in Procreate. The very small screen creates certain limitations in how I use line, tone and colour. This can be a challenge; and like many challenges one I rather enjoy!

It also leads to some distortion (though I think I can improve on this) in the shapes I make… which I kinda like..

I try to draw daily, whether on paper, canvas or the iPad…or android phone! Practice – as in most skill learning – is so important in furthering skills in drawing.

Thanks for visiting; have a great day!

*Just thought I’d mention to fellow bloggers who I’ve met up with over in Instagram land; I’ve now deleted my site there. I found it way too busy a place… at least for the moment, may try it again one day..
