Man on Plane (iPad painting)

From Paris to Minneapolis.

Drawn from life, in August.

One of the flight attendants saw what I was up to--and asked for the name of the app, for his wife.  ArtRage probably is experiencing an uptick in sales.

  1. You caught the slump of their bodies and the boredom on people's faces as they wait on the plane to get to their destinations. This guy could be any one of us except you. You were drawing and he cooperatively keeping still:-)

  5. NIIIIIIIICCCCCCEEEEE Jean - this is so weird and I love it. Those windows have a strange pull to them. The dimensionality can be read two ways. I can go on, lets just say I love it.

    btw: I was at the Hammer yesterday and spent a fair amount of time in the 20th century room. A Sargent that I saw anew and this wonderful little painting of a French bulldog by Letrec. I may put it on FB. Well see

  6. Thanks, Linda.

    I wasn't bored. Too busy being scared and trying to distract myself from it, by drawing.

    It worked, though the work is a little wobbly because of the turbulence.

  7. Thanks, Konstantina.

    This man was amazing. He refused meals on the flight. Wrapped himself in a blanket and worked on his computer.

    He did have some desserts, I think.

  9. Thanks, , Margaret.

    Probably, it should. At least i get to recommend something I am loving, even if there is no cash reward.

    Spreading artistic joy.

  10. Lucky, PA. I really miss having access to great art in person. The drawbacks of smallish, youngish town.

    I imagine that some day, in 50 years or less, Austin will have great public art. Just not yet. Need some rich philanthropists who love art and love Austin too.

  11. Another wonderful piece Jean. Do you print these out? You should!!!

    I especially love the window of the airplane- unmistakable.

  13. I like the density of the colors in these last three, but I'm especially fond of the paint glops on Airplane Guy. I'd never have guessed you could get that effect on an iPad.

  14. Thanks, Pamo.

    No printing. No printer.

    Maybe later.

  15. Me neither, Banjo.

    I love the ability to glop "paint" with this program. It acts like real paint. So cool.

  16. I like the paint glops too. It really is so cool that you can do that with an app.

  18. PA, I googled her. There's a lot of opportunity for artists in this town. Lots of places that could use art.

  19. Wow, it really does look like it was done with nice thick paint. I really like how you accomplished the folds in his shirt and blanket.

  20. Thanks, Minn.

    Though I drew him all wrapped up, he actually was moving all the time, using a laptop.

  21. Wonderful...! I'm so glad I got to see your paintings in paint when we met. These are so convincingly paint-like.

  22. Thanks, Shanna.

    There are even more possibilities with this program, some of which I am just starting to explore.

  23. Amazing that this is done on an iPad!!!

  24. Thanks, Chieftess.

    I want to explore the options more fully, but in the heat of sketching from life, I forget.
