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*

iDraw: Something Every Woman Can Relate To

I was listening to an interesting program on the radio about providing prom dresses to homeless young women, when I was quite surprised to hear the following assertion, "It's something every woman can relate to, putting on a dress that makes you feel good and beautiful." I dare say some of us feel good and beautiful without a dress, some don't desire to feel good and beautiful, and others feel better in a suit (a tux is best!).

In Giacometti's Studio

Monday, May 4, 2009


'Giacojulia' watercolor self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Artist of the month? Alberto Giacometti. This was based on his "Portrait of Madame Marguerite Maeght, 1961", which (gasp) does not seem to be available on the internet for me to link to.

Be Afraid, Very Afraid

I can look at a de Kooning and make these sort of interesting images that don't actually look like de Koonings. But if I look at myself, or at nothing, and try to make a similar drawing - well, it doesn't work. I can see what he drew, and how it relates to reality. But when I look at reality, I can't see what he might have drawn. And I can't see what I might draw in response to what he might have drawn... Never mind, this is getting too complicated.
