This week in art

I have always admired a style of portrait that uses a lot of colour, and thanks to Yuri Malkov's excellent iColorama tutorial, Here are my first two attempts.

The portraits are based on these two photos from Pixabay.

In an earlier post, I showed a teaser for a crochet project I had in the works. I have now finished my cocoon jacket. I think it turned out great!

Edit: I forgot to include the link to the great how-to video from YarnUtopia.

Playing with another new iPad app called iColorama. This painting is based on a still life photo.

And my friend Nicole Dreyer created this cool drawing and posted it on Facebook for us to colour. I did this one in Procreate.

This week in art

I've been busy with other things this week, but I did start playing with some new digital art apps. Also, in this post, I teased you with a photo of crochet work in progress; stay tuned next week for the big reveal.

This is one of my first efforts with an app called IC Painter, which applies painterly filters to photos.

This week in art

In my post a couple of weeks ago, my friend Ronit noticed owl-ish faces in one of my mandalas. This week, I played with iOrnament and tried to deliberately include faces. These are my initial simple ones; I'm definitely going to play with this some more.Owl mandala Owl mandala Owl mandala Owl mandala Owl mandala Owl mandala
