First LHB of Summer

'First LHB of Summer' watercolor self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) LHB stands for left-handed blind, which means I literally drew with my left (non-dominant) and and my eyes closed. Painting is done with my eyes open, in this case still with my left hand. Here are more self-portraits drawn with my eyes closed.

iDraw: What Type Am I?

No, it's not another facebook quiz! I'll answer my own question... I'm a multi-app type. It took 3 apps to make this: TypeDrawing, Brushes & JJackson Pollock.

iDraw: Fun But Frustrating

It's particularly hard to get small details like eyeballs, when the paint is likely to splat all over the place! I did do a sketch from a photo in Sketches, almost none of which is now visible after painting on it with the 'Jackson Pollack' app.

'Jackson Pollack' Portrait on my iPod Touch

This was done with the 'Jackson Pollack' app on my iPod Touch. Delightfully, the paint drips in the direction you tilt, and the 'ink' 'blots' based on speed of stroke.

Another Late Night in the Studio

Technical Difficulties

I still don't know what happened but the entire image directory for this blog got wiped out in the last 24-48 hours. Thanks to my fantastic web hosting service,. hostgo it was all restored through a week ago within 30 minutes of my sending an email requesting a reload from backup. I'm not as efficient as them so it may be another 24 hrs until I finish manually reloading the last week - but better a week of broken images than 2.5 years worth!!!

iDraw: Sisters in Colored Clothes

Tomorrow skin tones and hair...

Two days ago I worked watercolors over an inkjet print of a scanned pen drawing. Today I'm painting digitally over a scanned pen drawing. Making corrections while I did this, made me realize that there is finally a really clean way to 'erase' pen lines.. draw in pen, scan into computer, erase in photoshop, print back out and continue drawing or even watercoloring. The Canson inkjet paper I use has a great texture and takes watercolor very well.. unfortunately they're also not making it anymore. *sigh*
