Woman in Orange and Blue (iPad Sketch)

Drawn yesterday morning, from life.

Created with Sketch Club iPad app.

"Use your words, Jean."

  1. Cool! You are learning all sort of tricks. the iPad would be a great device for designing a blog header if you get to do all of this with text. I like it.

  2. Wonderful. The various compositions, they are coming so fast in the new media. I like the variation between the words in the image and the signature.

  3. Love the addition of text - so clever. Maybe I should learn how :)

  4. Thanks, all. Since you are all artists and might like to know how I did this, here's the "secret":

    This particular variation--drawing with text--is possible with the "text" tool on Sketch Club app.

    I typed in what I wanted to say, then controlled the word's size, intensity, typeface, velocity, spacing of repetition, et cetera.

    For this one, I used a few variations on one typeface, a few sizes, and many other variations, including colors.

    I also used two different words, "woman" and "Spitzer." (I guess no one is going to pay me for my prose or poetry.)

    I have just been going through the app, trying everything and came upon this, which I liked.

  7. Hello Jean - Your blog is pretty dynamic! I've become a follower, I hope you don't mind.

    In some respects we are at the opposite ends of the spectrum, but nevertheless, this is what I find amazing about blogland.

  8. I'm usually not especially fond of words as a part of painting, but this is an exception. You kept the freshness and the freedom and the words add rather than subtract. Really nice.

  9. whooa - Green with envy! can you just buy one that doesn't require purchasing another net provider? Like being able to hook it up to one's stationary computer to download apps? Better yet, I wonder if they have those kind of apps just for us regular mac users? Why is it we ave to buy programs that run into the hundreds??? am I ranting

    WHY YES I AM = DAMITALBERT

  10. Yes. Mine is not hooked up to any provider. I just use whatever Internet is free at public place and don't do anything private. At home, use our own in- house network.

  11. You could conceivably just visit apple store when you want apps, and not hook up at all otherwise, I suppose.

  13. Neat, Jean - your skill with color and form really shows to advantage with this new format you are using.
    I am going to look forward to seeing more.

  15. Thanks, Julie.

    I am having fun with this medium, which really feels like multiple media. I especially love the freedom to lavishly use supplies without wasting money, while I explore.

  16. Something about this blue and orange is just right. I can't imagine her and the background in other colors.

    Love this Jean!
