Never posted a drawing demo but have been so impressed with the recently purchased iPadPro’s performance that I did a quick drawing from imagination. Am using the Procreate app and Sensu stylus (while waiting for the Apple Pencil to be delivered). The iPadPro’s dimension and fast chip performance lend themselves so well to drawing/painting that I don’t have to dwell on laggy performance. (Video capture via iPhone6 Plus.)
While taking a lunch break we were treated to a peacock display on a recent visit to the Wildlife Waystation.
Took a few photos while at the Getty Center for the J.M.W. Turner – Painting Set Free exhibition. Seeing the artwork in person is an opportunity to see Turner’s marvelous brushwork. His watercolor pieces are exceptional.
I was fortunate to win a software drawing from the MyMac podcast. Boinx Software’s Fotomagico is a an easy to learn and well-supported slideshow video program. I grabbed some old iPhone photos and put together a video in a short amount of time. It could use some further fine-tuning as I become more familiar with the options. But overall, you can set up a slideshow video quite easily.
Our UCLA Retirees’ Association went on an amazing downtown Graffiti Art Tour headed by docent Man One, a leading urban muralist and artist. Thanks to him for a great tour! May 2014.

Finally got up to LACMA to see the excellent Calder and Abstraction exhibit. Before going in took some video of Calder’s outdoor sculpture, “Three Quintains.”
Was looking through some of my video files and put together snippets of local park footage. A reminder that spring and summer sun is around the corner.
Always enjoy ParkaBlogs’ sketchwalk videos (and his art book blog as well!). I admire the large participation, enthusiasm and artwork on these urban sketchwalks. Here’s one of my favorites.
Went to the an obon festival held at a local Buddhist temple and took some video of the odori (dancing). Always enjoy seeing the costumes and other festivities to honor the ancestors.
I recently discovered Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens. They are fast-color India ink, no-show-through and odorless. Artist Don Colley’s video for F-C pretty much sold it for me. I have been using Faber-Castell polychromos pencils for drawing and have been impressed with their quality. So am not surprised these Pitt pens are first-rate.
