Caricature drawn in Procreate. I just felt like this early '60's type scene was better handled with Procreate than my beloved Fresco. Even which app or which medium that an Artist chooses is part of the creation.

Are we still the same people?

Posted Apr 2020

It was only a few months ago that there was no problem about going into Manhattan to draw the staff in a Meeting Room. Or to a local restaurant our here on Long Island. Without Masks. Here are a few of the Caricatures that I drew at 2 separate Events. We had a great time.

I am still drawing Office Staff. But these days it's done from photographs that they send me. I can spend more time on each picture, really get in to the Artwork. I enjoy the pleasures of drawing. But I don't get the social pleasure of seeing the Guests immediate reactions.

I like it both ways. I like drawing remotely, but I also miss the interactions of drawing in person.

I drew this Caricaturesfrom photos i found on the internet. Joan Jett. Fresco Digital Caricature

So. I'm torn between the Fresco app and the Procreate app. To be honest, what I really want to do on my Time off is Fresco app. It's like real painting, but cleaner. I feel like im in to it. Not a job. The way i really Paint just because i love to get in to it. I love to feel the expression develop as I paint. In Fresco. Just like in real Oil Painting. But without the mess.

But Procreate. That app came out years before Fresco. At first I kept trying to use it like real painting (what I can do in the Fresco app now), but I ended up developing a new type of Artwork instead. It wouldn't paint like Oil Paints. But going forward ~ discovering the special things that could only be done in Procreate. Could only be done with Current Art Supplies. I felt amazed with it. But I do have to say that it feels Commercial. Like the Product is what's important, not the Artist's experience.

So I did work very hard with the Procreate, and it can do some really neat stuff. That Fresco cannot do. It is much more suitable in a Party Setting ~ where I'm supposed to automatically drop in the dazzling answers. And I feel like I should stay connected with Procreate ~ since that's most of my business. At least, it Was most of my business until this Coronavirus thing hit. Anyway, I feel like I should stay connected with it and keep developing it more and more. I'm a grown-up. My job is more important than play.

But Fresco is more than play to me. It is more like meditation or heart or life. It's the sort of painting that I must do. That I would be doing in Some kind of media even if I never had another Job. And I prefer the Digital Fresco Painting to traditional media. Great. Versatile. More than Oil Painting (which is what I usually use it for), but it's more than that. I can mix Oil Painting with Watercolors and Pastels and Pencils and back and forth and more. Using any type of media I envision. I love Fresco
