This week in art

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

Here are some new mandalas. These two started as line art in iOrnament, then coloured in Procreate.

And this one is from my colouring book, Geneviève's Mandalas, coloured in Procreate.

As I crocheted the baby blanket and hat last week, I got a renewed interest in crochet. This is my current work in progress. (No, it's not a blanket.)
