Lilac time-color on a grey day.
A bike ride and little plein air piece. Snowbowl in the background. The larches have not busted a move yet up here, though down at the house they are blushing green. Haven’t found any ticks yet. Bonus. Smelled very elky but didn’t find any sheds.
This is just a v1 prototype, but works OK. The sunscreen folds up and goes in, and of course the ipad goes in as well. With a little travel umbrella of blackest black (which I don’t have yet), held over your shoulder to block the light coming in from behind it might not be too bad…. That shiny-ass apple glass, looks so good in starbucks, so bad out in the woods. The ‘pad seemed a little scared to be so far away from a venti soy latte.
A little plein air sketching outside. I made a tripod-mount plein air case for the iPad and giving it a test drive. Maybe pics of that later…
Not much on smudging real pastels but artrage has a cool water knife that gives this soft effect. Nice for a spring sky. On the downside I’m crashing it with fair regularity…it doesn’t like these bigger files.
