Defining My Approach

Posted Jan 2019

I wanted to feel more in control of whether I'm drawing Exaggerated Caricatures Or Tame Caricatures. There usually isn't enough time to Control anything during a Party, but I felt like I might have a little more Control if I look into it on my Time Off.

So I took a few photos at random from other posts on this website. Even though the Caricatures that I had drawn At the Events were fine, yes very fine, I wanted to see what would happen if I decided ahead of time whether to draw Tamely or Exaggerated. I'm posting them here so I can see them all together and try to make sense out of the experience:

Hmmmm... What I see from this experience is that it's all good. As long as I'm seriously into the drawing, it's interesting to see what comes out. And hmmmm... I would like to check out furtherly exaggerating stuff. Like ~ don't stop at one or two exaggerations, but exaggerate Everything. Not sure how that would go over at an Event though. I feel like people usually want to see something that looks something like a Face when I'm hired to draw 'Faces' lol. Aaaannndd... perhaps to dull down even more with the Tame Caricatures. Like how simple/garbage can I take it to ~ and Then to figure out how to turn That into a good picture from That point. It's all good. I love Artwork. I love to see what I can do in a picture.

Aaaaand... I was reminded about how much I love to draw on the IPad. I hope to play around with That some more too.

Post Script ~ Or am I? Am I hired to draw Faces? Oooor, and this is what it really is ~ I am hired to draw Caricatures. Just because some people think that 'Caricatures' means 'Faces' doesn't make it true.

Painterly in Procreate

Posted Jan 2019

I'm at it again. Determined to figure out how to Paint on the IPad the same way I use Oil Paints. I like to use a Limited Palette with Oil Paints. And I was able to Quickly make a comparable Limited Palette with the other Palettes I had previously been making on my IPad.

Even though I prefer Alla-Prima Oil Painting, I chose to work with Transparencies, aka mixing right along while painting. Because I thought it was going to feel too tedious to mix specific Colors on the IPad. Because the Colors don't work the same way as they do with Traditional Media.

I used one of the Reaction Photos from my website as a Reference. This is what I did.

Looking forward to posting them here so I can better see how it came out.

I love it! Especially that Final Pop

Lighting with Umbrella

Posted Jan 2019

Ah! Oh! AAAAhhh! EEEE! I couldn't believe it! Egads. O My. Oh Oh. I got to my gig this evening ~ at a Bowling Alley ~ so you can imagine how dark it was ~ well actually this one was Dark, but not nearly as dark as Some bowling alley gigs. And my Client took that into consideration! She showed up with a light for me, and I was told to set up right next to an outlet to use it. All Right!

But Wow! Blow me away! I felt knocked for a loop. Like How did this Happen?? I am Sooo Blessed! I've been feeling overwhelmed about Lighting All Week ~ and then This happens.

Who woulda thunk it, but my Client took out This Light!

I felt bowled over. I expressed my delight, and the Client told me that she understood. Because, and now Who Woulda Thunk it!, Because they're a Broadcasting Company! Oh.

Btw ~ you can see just how Wonderful her Big Professional Light is. In the forefront of the photo is a beige Chair. In front of the light that is directed by the umbrella. Pretty accurately described. But a couple of feet behind that are 2 more Chairs. They look dark gray in the photo, but they were really beige ~ just like the one in the forefront. But it isn't accurately described in the photo Because It's Behind the Umbrella.
