Blogtoberfest ~ Day 6 Recently I posted about my love for my ipad here. My love for it gets greater everyday. I do not want to have these attachments to external devices . I know that in a moments notice all can be lost. I am still grieving the loss of an old hard drive the other day.... It was too traumatic to post about at the time, but as time heals, I will... On to happier thoughts...my love for my ipad and a certain application called Sketchbook Pro. Below is a little something I whipped up while waiting for a plane not too long ago. No thoughts or cares just playing with marks and colors I do not normally use. I really enjoyed the process of creating this. (those who know me well are shaking their heads right now...flying is not my favorite pastime so flying has become a bit of a 'happy time' for me ;) I thought I would give this a try on paper. I have been doodling or mark making a lot these days and thinking how am I going to incorporate these marks into my work. Here is what I came up with... Now when I started out my intention was to try to make them similar, but as you can see that didn't really goes as planned. I was all free and easy using my ipad, but the moment I got to paper, I tightened up and wasn't as flowy.I found I also could not recreate my original colors as easily as I could on the ipad. Time and patience with color..it will get there.. Regardless, the concept and premise behind the two were the same. I started out by making lots of random marks and shapes. Took a step back to find some patterns. Then just painted in the negative space around them. Once again, just trying to learn from experience and hopefully sharing this with you will provide you with an a'ha moment of your own. Hope so! I would love you to share any other creative ipad applications in the comment section below that others may be interested in. Thanks!
