Merry Drawing

A quick Photoshop enhancement to a charcoal drawing on newsprint to announce the cancellation of our regular Tuesday evening drawing group that happened to fall on Christmas Eve this year. The model has a sleeve tattoo that extends from her shoulder to below the elbow. Pretty cool.

Napa Flowers

During an early Christmas visit with relatives in Napa, CA, I passed some time by sketching on the iPad, using an app called ProCreate. After getting a little bit familiar with the interface, I loaded an iPhone photo of a flower arrangement of Calla Lilies, then repainted the image in ProCreate.

I imported the ProCreate image into Photoshop, enlarged and retouched it, increased the resolution, then imported the retouched version into Corel Painter X3 and repainted it using the Oil Brush Cloner. After saving the Painter file as a Photoshop document I retouched some more.

The final image, 40 x 30 inches, will be output as a gallery-wrap canvas.
