One Year/100 Paintings - Digital paintings showing my progress this year with painting on iPad Pro using Apple Pencil. In the beginning, I would place the photo left and sample colors from the photo to make the painting on the right. I'm now trying to bring up the photo in a separate window on the left and choose the colors from a palette in Procreate to try to give the painting a more unified color palette. The top image showing the photo on the left with the painting on the right in Procreate. The last two figure paintings are from live model drawing sessions.
#20 - One Year/100 Paintings - Mt. Vernon Place Magnolia Tree - 5 x 7 acrylic on canvas board. I think I overdid this style of painting that I'm using right now, but let's see what develops in future paintings.
Last Saturday, I traveled to the National Museum of Health and Medicine for a sketching event featuring a talk with a medical illustrator and heart specimens on display to sketch. Brenda and I had gone a couple of weeks earlier to see the museum collection where I had made a few sketches. I wanted to try drawing on my iPad Pro with Apple Pencil to get a feel for sketching on the go using the Procrete app. I tried the graphite pencil brush for the drawings I made on the first visit. I refined the loose drawings later in a coffee shop while we waited to meet Alan for dinner.
I came back for the Sketching Hearts event eager to see the specimens up close and make more detailed paintings. I was able to spend more time on the human heart painting, but I could have worked more detail in that one. The other sketches of the Ostrich heart were looser and quickly created as I was running out of time.
I am looking forward to going back for more time sketching the collection. Brenda and I are planning to go the Mütter Museum again at some point where I hope to make similar sketches.
