Drawing Tame Or Drawing Exaggerated

Posted 4 days ago

Earlier today (while I was Not drawing), I figured it out. Well..... I Felt like I had figured it out. I felt like I had finally figured out how to easily switch from the Basic Simple Caricatures that Some Guests prefer to the Exaggerated Caricatures that more artistially evolbed Guests know how to appreciate.

So I planned on drawing a bunch of them tonight. Based on old photos from my website. But I only got to One. Because the first one caused a glitch in my neat little 'answer'.

First I drew it Simply. Good. Easy. I didn't fuss about it.

Then I felt surprised that I totally bombed on the Exaggerated #Caricature. That's my Thing. Exaggeration. That's the style which defines me as a real Artist. No time for disappointment. I just tried it again.

Tried it again. The Exaggerated Caricature. Again, I felt surprised that it didn't delight me the way my Exaggerated #Party Caricatures were delighting me at this week's #Events. But in a pinch, I would have been able to use this Caricature at an #Event. Especially if I added Color.

Then I drew it even again even. That one came out good, but I felt surprised that it needed a mediumly extensive Predraw. Because it had felt so easy to draw Exaggerated Caricatures at this Week's previous Events.

I wish I had time to do more of these now. Maybe some other day ~ ~ ~

Uplifting the Staff at an Assisted Living Facility

Here's a Caricature from an Event for honoring the Staff at an Assisted Living Facility. Such an important job. It's good that they had such good attitudes. We laughed and had fun:

I hired Alison for my husband's birthday party and it was a huge success! She arrived early to set everything up and then dived right into the drawings. Alison even joined in on the birthday party theme and wore an outfit that went along with it. Most of my friends had never been part of a caricature drawing before, but they enjoyed the whole experience! Everyone was entertained by being a spectator and by being the subject of the drawing. Each picture was so unique to the person being drawn. There was a lot of laughter that night! I highly recommend Alison for any party!

IPad Versatility

Posted Sep 2019

Here are just a couple of the Digital Caricatures that I drew at a recent Event. It's just great how I can resize and erase and use different brushes and oh there's just so much flexibility in drawing on an IPad.
